Spring Shoe Edit

When it finally starts to get warm here I relish the chance to pull out my espadrilles and suede styles. These are my top picks for their fresh looks for the spring season. Each of these pairs incorporates a trend while still being very versatile. The mule trend is going strong and I love these from Marc Fisher! The block heel keeps them comfy while still giving me some height ;). I also love the […]

Denim Roundup

Donning denim is always presents a fun challenge of how to make this timeless staple feel fresh. I’d have to say that I wear denim most days and sometimes it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. Below I’ve rounded up some ways to refresh your denim options – yes, even skinny jeans 😉 Like all good 90’s trends, the split hem skinny is back this season :). I love this twist on […]

The Extra Mile

As you know by now, I’m a big fan of unexpected combinations in outfits. I’m always looking for a way to put a twist on the usual take on an outfit. Here I loved the idea of trying to wear this sequined dress for an everyday look. The over-the-knee suede flat boots made it feel more casual and also added warmth for the winter. This leather jacket in theory could have been too much with […]

City Sparkles

Last week I talked about shopping local at Grace Boutique in Old Town. Since the boutique is known for its selection of dresses I decided to feature one that caught my eye. I’m not normally drawn to dresses but I had fun adding my own flair with this leather jacket. Unexpected elements are always more interesting so I like to pair something edgy with my outfits. This also gives you more mileage from a formal […]

Pieces On Repeat

I have to say this outfit is making me happy right now! It’s made up of some of my favorite layering pieces this season. The vest I’ve been wearing on repeat with outfits like this one or with some over-the-knee suede boots and a big scarf. The beanie is so warm and cosy that I often find myself throwing it on for an added pop of color. The necklace is surprisingly versatile! I love that […]

Fresh Take

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I talked in an earlier post about my love for velvet and the ways it’s being worn right now. It’s a fresh take to see it in casual settings so here I’ve paired it with denim. Cuffing the denim makes it more casual and keeps the velvet from being too stuffy. It’s an easy way to get more mileage out of that velvet sport coat you may have been reserving […]

New Year in Neutrals

My favorite neutral color is navy. It’s actually my favorite color period but I love that it can act as a neutral. I think many of us were taught not to mix neutrals – like if you wear a brown belt you wear brown shoes. This is actually not the case as neutrals are just that – neutral. That means they get along with everyone and should be allowed to mix and mingle ;). So […]

Fleur de Leaves

Whenever I need a good silk blouse I can usually find one in my mom’s closet. She has real silk vintage blouses that she has collected and friends have given her over the years. It makes vintage shopping much more convenient and less musty ;). This fleur de lis one is from Ann Taylor and I love it! It’s super comfortable and is an instant outfit-maker. I paired it with this leather midi skirt for […]

Stripes and City Lights

I love a challenge – especially if it’s fashion related. One of the fun things about fashion is sifting through trends and finding ways to incorporate them into your personal style. People often think the way they see a trend on Kendall Jenner is the only way to wear it but that is not so. Being petite, there are rarely trends that I can incorporate without a significant amount of tailoring. This at first seemed […]

Petite Picks

Being petite has its perks. You can curl up in a coach class airplane seat, legroom is never a problem, and you can wear the highest heels in the world and not tower over your man. That said, there are definitely challenges, the most significant being finding clothes that fit. While every body type has its frustrations, being petite has compounded complications. It’s not just that pant and skirt lengths and sleeves need to be […]
