The Last of Summer

top: INC
skirt: Forever21 (similsr here and here on sale)
heels: old (similar)
bag: Kate Spade
glasses: Choies c/o
watch: Fossil

It's officially fall over here. The mornings are so chilly that I'm itching to turn the heat on. Yet, I couldn't wait to wear this top (which I go on super sale) until next year. I know that it's not online or in stores anymore but I just love it. The stripes and the flowers are so perfect together I think. Plus, can you tell I'm in love with this midi skirt? Although, I'm quite not sure about the 70s trend for this fall. I can get on board with denim but suede isn't quite my thing (yet). Are you a fan of all the fringe, suede and lots of denim?

Red Midi Skirt

skirt: Forever 21 (similar here, love this one)
top: TJMaxx (similar under $35)

clutch: DIY (similar on sale under $30)
pumps: J.Crew (similar here, also love these)
glasses: Karen Walker via Ditto c/o
watch: Fossil (on sale under $90)

There is no doubt, red is my favorite color this season. Another favorite thing of mine is to scour gorgeous clothes for fraction of the cost. I found this skirt during my recent thrift store shopping spree and couldn't believe my eyes that I found exactly what I was looking for. I love the ease of movement and the countless ways I can style it (also how gorgeous is this one?).Also I'm loving the bow striped pumps (unfortunately they sold out) in this outfit. Can't stop thinking of more ways to wear them. Are you into mdi skirts or shy away from their particular styling? Thank you for stopping by!

Spring 2015 Must Have Shoes

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

It's almost spring and that means, it's time to get your pretty shoes out. A lot of the trends are new this season but more are here to stay from last season.  The cut outs trend is definitely making a huge statement this season, with gorgeously cut out flat, booties and sandals.  Also, the gladiator sandals are here to stay but I'm not sure I how I fell about them. I definitely want a pair of cut out ankle but those really nigh sandals aren't my thing. But with the upcoming spring showers and a great thaw, you have to have cute rain boots - the classic that's going to make appearance season after season. I love this mint blue color from New Look and can't wait to get my hands on them, considering they are under $50Another great shoe for transitioning into warmer weather is the Dr. Marten original from UnionJack Boots. With the different colors and pattern, you can pair them with almost anything. How about mixing dressed up looks with New Balance sneakers (also love these and these)? Totally in and so many fashionistas are rocking it.!

What's your favorite shoe trend for this spring?

Red Valentine's Day Look

skirt: LOFT (similar here and here)
top: Forever21 (similar here & here)
booties: Ann Taylor (here & here)
scarf: Target
clutch: Target
watch: FOSSIL (on sale!!!)
I'm not sure if this outfit looks more Christmas-y or Valentine's Day-ish. I was trying to go with red and black but somehow this scarf makes me think Christmas. I know that every year for V-day I try to wear something like a killer LBD that hugs my bod in all the right places or skinny jeans with a liiiiiitle lower cut top. It's a treat for the hubs after all. But I think this year I will be bundling up with something warm like this scarf and extra thick fleece-lined tights. Geese Louise it's cold here! I hope you are getting your red on this weekend and I have a few more V-day inspired outfits coming your way. Have you thought of any romantic gestures yet? Are you staying in or going our to celebrate the day of love?

Thank you for stopping by.

Life is too short - wear heels! No, seriously, ladies enjoy the season while you can still walk barefoot. The time of the year when we sit at home and look out of the window in hopes of seeing a ray of sunshine is almost here. I'm dreading the next six months I'm going to have to spend in fleece pajamas and triple tights. 

But on a happy note, Christmas time is coming and it's the most fun when you have kids. Can't wait for Jonathan actually get to open presents this year. Yay for white Christmas but then I wish we could just skip straight to May and have beautiful spring all over. Alas, it's not going to happen. 

So head on over to your closest TJMaxx and grab some fleece lined leggings, put them on and marvel at the fact that you haven't been living them before. You are welcome!

cords: LOFT similar
flats: Ellen Tracy (similar, similar)

My fall uniform consists of these cords. I mean, I wear them every day, except when I'm on my knees scrubbing the floor after breakfast (read: smashed scrambled eggs. yuck!) I love corduroy pants because they are the most comfortable pants in the history of the world. They make you look put together without compromising style and you can dress them up or down. This is my version of dressed down, because you know, flats. Hope you are having a great and thank you so much for reading!

Well, another week has gone by and I'm reminded, yet again, that time is a precious commodity. I'm loving fall this year, and that's an understatement. Warm sun-filled days and crisp cool nights; the smell of apples and cinnamon in my house as I whip up some fall-themed muffins. It's simply breathtakingly beautiful! I'm also gravitating towards cooler colors and lots of color blocking this fall, as well as sleeveless dresses with blouses (remember this look?). This is a second look this fall and I can't get away from it. I hope you are enjoying this time of the year and having a good time of your life. 
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Well, oh well, looky here. Someone has fallen to the peer pressure and bought into the trend, and it's very obvious who that someone is. The very first time I saw a leather skirt on one of the bloggers I honestly thought it was a little too much, too tacky and not for me. Fast forward year later, and I'm the one wearing it but when it comes to items like that, it's all about balance. I could not (well, I guess you could) wear it with anything like sequins or print but rather with an understated top and nude heels. Is it church worthy? I don't think so because it has too much of a sexy factor and shines like crazy. (And no one wants to see my rear in grease-like accent haha).
Do you buy trends as soon as they come out, or does it take a few years for you to warm up to the idea? Do share ladies. Thank you for stopping by.

I have one pair of printed pants and to be honest, I wear them more than any other pants. I'm lacking in good quality jeans and very much dreading the day when I will have to go shopping. Jean shopping is my least favorite because I know how hard it is to find a good pair for my shape. I hate low rise jeans that expose unnecessary elements every time I sit down, or bend over to pick up my child. At the same time, I don't want mommy jeans. It's a very delicate balance right in the middle of not to high and not too low on the hips. Also I do not want to spend half an hour getting into those jeans so they cannot be very skinny, but I'm not a fan of boot cut either. 
So, I as you can imagine, jeans are quite  the commodity in my closet and I only have two well fitting pairs. Come fall, you will find me in every single department store, grunting and sighing at the impossibility of finding well-fitting jeans. But for now, it's printed pants all the way!
Have a great weekend ladies!
