Ok, ok…I know what you’re thinking. Peplum top…blog post title “Peppy”?? How original Stephanie. Well my lovelies, so sorry – t just fit!  😉   The post title of my last outfit post was “Breezy”. In all actuality, I really should have called this one “Sweaty” – it was (and still is) hoooot!

sunglasses – old navy (similar at an AWESOME price! )

 

If you asked me to name one accessory that I am absolutely OBSESSED with for the summer, it definitely is reflector or “mirrored” sunglasses.  They make such an awesome statement and so easily added a great added punch or “pizazz” to even the simplest of outfits! I hope to be adding a few more pairs to my collection!

top – express (old),  jeans – old navy, gladiator sandals –  dillards (SPLURGE on this leopard print pair or SAVE w/ these ),  necklace – kohl’s *similar), ring – old navy,clutch – nine west,  sunglasses – asos (LOVING this reflector pair), nail polish – revlon “trendy” (part of the gucci westman “pacifica” collection), lipstick – revlon “kiss me coral”

 

Cool blue. What is it about the color blue that is so calming and soothing? Aside from bright color, it’s always a color I’ve really loved and always tend to gravitate toward. Especially when it comes to times in life when stress is high, a nice calm and soothing color does the trick. Of course, if you know me and my love of color, I didn’t just stop with blue – obvi. I decided to accent my “cool blue” top with a pop of hot pink and a great bright blue accent color on my nails to pull it all together.

How do you wear your blue?

Life has not been easy for me lately.  However, despite my tough times, I decided maybe wearing a bright, sunny and overall happy color was what I needed. Amazing how, even if only for a short time, just wearing a great bright color can improve your mood. This sunny yellow top from Ann Taylor is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It’ s fun to wear and so easy to style; a piece that can effortlessly be dressed up or dressed down.

What are some of your favorite colors to wear to improve your mood?

Black and white paired together has always been a very classic, modern and clean look. With it being one of springs biggest trends, specifically bold black and white stripes,   I am all about finding interesting and different ways to style it! With the two colors naturally being such easy and neutral colors palettes to work with, the opportunities are endless. I definitely will be adding in a little pop of bright color to this trend later in the season, but for now I just had fun wearing the two colors together with a simple pop of fun via my leopard print heels, a fun zebra print clutch and a bright lip color.

How would you style this trend?

Sometimes you just really need to go for it….just punch it up. What am I am talking about? Well, I guess you can look at what I just said and think I mean many different things.  In this case, I’m referring to the great punches of bright color via my new favorite hot pink beanie, great aqua necklace, NEON pink lipstick and vivid blue nail polish. In most cases all of these different colors together would be quite the crazy disaster, however, here I luckily used a bit of common sense (hehe!) and grounded them with black.

With spring being right around the corner, I know I’m not the only one loving some color right now. Wearing bright color just instantly makes me happy. This being so, expect to see much more of it popping up on the blog as spring comes.

Have you been rocking a bit of bright color lately? What’s your favorite way to wear it?

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  🙂

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?

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?
