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  🙂

Fabulous Fridays: Sequined Blazers

Fabulous Fridays: Sequin Blazers

From top (L to R):  ASOS , Macy’s , Michael Kors , Dorothy Perkins , Diane Von Furstenburg (more affordable and similar version HERE)


Keeping it short and sweet this week. Two words:  sequined blazers. Check into it! Such an incredibly versatile piece, as it can so easily be dressed up and dressed down. It looks amazing with jeans and heels and can just as easily pair with a sleek pencil skirt or pair of slacks for the office or  more formal look. It’s such a great statement piece….I’m OBSESSED.
What do you think of sequined blazers?

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?

Tres Cool. I’ve been seeing this fun and funky sweater everywhere lately and I’m a bit obsessed. Admittedly, I don’t really know what “tres cool” means (I googled it and still no luck), but whatever the definition, it is quite cool friends! I love how Atlantic-Pacific , Brooklyn Blonde and Sincerely Jules ,  featured above, have styled this piece. It pairs perfectly with a comfy pair of boyfriend jeans, but just as well coordinates so fabulously with a sleek pair of slacks or leather skirt. I myself think I’d try pairing it with a pencil skirt and my fave pair of leopard print heels!

What you think of this sweater? How would you style it?

Outfit Details:  blazer – kohl’s , top – express (old) , boyfriend jeans – asos curve , heels – franco sarto (similar), aviators – asos , bracelet – kohl’s , ring – the limited

 

A blazer and boyfriend jeans is such an easy way to achieve a classic, classy and chic look; a favorite in my book. A pairing like this is one of many ways I’m finding to bring my boyfriend jeans, one of my summer staples, into fall. Another combo I’m loving? Plum and oxblood. I don’t know about you, but to me it almost seems like they were meant to be paired together. I kept it simple here by bringing out the oxblood color subtly through my bracelet and lip color.

Beware though my friends – this is just beginning of what I believe will be a beautiful color pairing for fall!

What are some fall colors you’re loving paired together?

 

 

 

UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!

 

 

 

Like my look? I’ve been doing some shopping lately and have found some great fall pieces! Take a look!

Serpent Queen

Today was the first day, after almost an entire week of rainy and icky weather, that it was sunny and warm.  So, I thought it perfect to go grab some brunch with some friends and then take a little stroll in the park. Beautiful sunny weather makes me so happy and when I can I take any chance I can to go  soak it all up!
