Outfit Details:   beanie – old navy (OBSESSED with this one), sweater – old navy, skinny jeans – old navy (lusting over these), heels – nine west, aviator sunnies – asos (similar), necklace – kohl’s, rings – the limited & old navy

 

Two things:  I’m wearing almost entirely Old Navy here (they should hire me as one of their models) and this is my first time wearing a beanie – hopefully I don’t look ridiculous.  I love the beanie trend and decided I finally wanted to give it a try myself. I found a lot of inspiration here and here. I realize I am probably the last person ever to wear this trend this season, but regardless, I  definitely think I’ll be continuing this trend and seeing how many different ways I can incorporate it into my current wardrobe.

Quite often I find myself dressing according to my mood. Sometimes I feel like going uber feminine and lady-like, sometimes I feel like going super casual or sometimes I feel edgy and rebellious. I know it’s weird, but hey, it’s me! This particular day I couldn’t really make up my mind or pinpoint exactly what I was “feeling”, so I went with a few different elements. Feminine touches with just a bit of edge.  Pink and leopard print, a beanie and “over the top” mega sparkle rhinestone necklace and skinny jeans and a girly heart sweater.  Opposites attract, right?

Have you tried the beanie trend? How do you like to incorporate opposite elements into one outfit?

XOXO,  Stephanie  🙂

Outfit Details:  blazer – kohl’s , top – the limited (great glam emerald option here), jeans – old navy , heels – nine west , rings – forever 21 and old navy (cute ones here and here), necklace – the limited

 

Note to self:  pick a day to shoot that is not ridiculously windy. Second note to self:  pick a time of day when the sun isn’t blinding you. I kinda had a problem finding some pictures to use where my eyes weren’t either closed or I was squinting. Hey, your live and you learn, right?

Anyways, here we go, my first outfit post in….how long? Too long. This week has had me in full New York Fashion Week mode. Even though I’m NOT THERE, with amazing things like Twitter, Live Stream, Style.com, WWD, and more, I sure feel like I am.  I someday plan and hope to be able to actually attend in person one year.

If I were there this year, I think this outfit would be a cute option to where out and about to shows. Although, I’d probably jazz it up a bit with a bit more bling, oversized sunnies , a great bag and maybe a different pair skinny jeans.  In encompasses three major trends this season – emerald, leopard print and tweed. I thought about adding in a few more trends, but then I thought, maybe that would be too trendy.    😉

What are some of your favorite trends that you’ve been rocking lately?

Outfit Details:  coat – target (similar), cardigan – macy’s (similar), boyfriend jeans: asos , booties – payless, gloves: target, sunglasses – steve madden, neckalce – kohl’s (also LOVE this beauty)

 

I decided to go “all out” with this outfit – jewel tones, sequins, houndstooth, “Michael Jackson” fingerless zebra print gloves, ripped jeans, purple sunglasses and booties. Not too much, right? What can I say;  I like experimenting. I recently have been doing a lot of “experimenting” fashion-wise lately. More to the point, I’ve been trying to mix and match different pieces and create different combinations in my current wardrobe I otherwise never would have of.

I’m trying to do what I can to cut back on shopping, as I’ve been doing a bit too much of that lately.  Funny how many different outfits you can come up with using what you already have! Hey, maybe this living on a budget and more within my means thing won’t be so bad, right?!

Have you “shopped” your closet lately? What different and unexpected combos have you come up with?

Outfit Details:  top – lane bryant, skinny jeans – old navy, shoes – asos, necklace – kohl’s, ring – gift from father, bracelets & watch – forever 21

 

Welcome to my first outfit post of 2013! I just realized that it’s been almost a month since my last outfit post! Eeeek! Regarding the name of this particular post, I named it “Ice Princess” for two reasons – first, it was COOOLD while shooting and I almost froze into an ice cube and secondly, I’m wearing my favorite piece of “ice”, this awesome shiny rhinestone necklace from Kohl’s.  I seriously cannot seem to take it off!

This outfit definitely includes two of my favorite things: polka dots and bling! I love the accent of blue polka dots in this top.  I decided to keep the rest of the outfit fairly simple, aside from the great accents of bling with this necklace and my favorite sapphire and diamond ring that my dear father gave me for Christmas a few years ago.

Well, so far we’re 10 days into the new year, and I have to say, it hasn’t been too bad so far. I am excited for this year and think great things will be happening!   🙂

Outfit Details: blazer – Elle (via Khol’s ) , sequined top – old navy , necklace – kohl’s (similar) , jeans – old navy, heels – DSW , aviator sunnies – asos (similar)
 
 
This outfit is yet another example of two pieces I never thought would work together – sequins and tweed. Just like plaid, I never thought tweed would be something I’d wear or anything that would work for me. Honestly, I always saw tweed, up until recently, as something that women much older than I would wear…like my grandmother!
 
But, alas, just like I found that plaid isn’t just for lumberjacks, tweed is not just for my grandmother. When styled creatively, it can be oh so chic! After finding tons of inspiration HERE, I braved it and went out and bought my very first tweed blazer. The really cool thing about this particular blazer is that is a “distressed” tweed! So, like my favorite pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, it does the job, but will a  little bit of edge!
 
What do you think? Would you wear tweed this season?

Outfit Details:  blazer –  target (similar) , top – the limited (old) , boyfriend jeans – asos curve (similar) , loafers – nine west (similar) , bag – express (great one here )

 

Who said you can’t wear a pair of distressed and ripped boyfriend jeans with a tailored blazer? No one that I know of! I love playing “opposites attract” with my looks. I decided to keep in the same color family with the top I wore underneath my blazer, but as you can see, I definitely didn’t when it came to my bag! It’s always fun to add in an unexpected pop of color!

In other news – I’ve rediscovered a love for loafers! How cute are my Nine West heeled loafers?  😉

How do you like to play “opposites attract” with your looks?

Outfit Details:  top – tjmaxx (old) (love this option for the holidays) , boyfriend jeans – asos curve (similar) , stilettos – charolette russe , bracelets – forever 21 (similar options HERE on sale! )

 

Sequins for life. I’m completely fine living by that motto considering how much I LOVE anything of the shiny or sparkly variety. Well, it’s the holiday season and with that  comes the sequins and shine. I mean really, I couldn’t imagine the holidays without a little shine!

Anyway, this is the look I wore to a local event in downtown Tulsa. The event was called #Tweet4toys and was held by a great meetup group I’m a part of called Social Media Tulsa. If you’re in Tulsa you SERIOUSLY need to check them out! The event was held at the beautiful and historic Mayo Hotel on their breathtakingly awesome penthouse rooftop bar. The downtown skyline views were AMAZING, the drinks were great and the best part – thanks to toy donations brought that night, many children will have a happier Christmas this year thanks to Salvation Army!

So, in conclusion, I think we can say that sequins are appropriate for any occasion! 🙂

Outfit Details:  sweater – kohl’s (old) , top – target (old) , jeans – old navy (last seen here and here) , shoes – asos (similar) , ring – dillards , necklace – unknown (old) , aviator sunnies – asos 

 

I am a true believer that a girl needs her sparkle; no matter what the season. Fall is almost over, the temperatures are dropping ( I almost froze to death during this shoot – can you tell?) and Christmas is practically here already! Let’s face it folks – old man winter is knocking on our door.  Like I said though, a girl needs her sparkle; even in the winter.

I honestly can’t even remember the last time that I wore this sweater. However, it was like finding hidden treasure finding it in the back of my closet. Want to know the best part? This little sweater is adorned in sequins! Yes, subtle as they are, there are sequins! What does one do when wearing a sequined adorned sweater? Add more sparkle to the look (naturally) of course!

How are you going to “get your sparkle on” this winter?

Gonna keep it short and sweet today. I had mixed emotions when it came to this outfit. I couldn’t decide between polka dots or leopard print being the main focal point. So, I decided to go with both. I have to say – I’m quite happy with the results.

You know this wouldn’t be complete without a little video accompaniment, right? 😉

 

 

What do you think? Would you mix polka dots and leopard print?
