Street Style | Bold Stripes

There is something about stripes that conveys power and strength. A perfectly striped blazer or bold striped dress is a great go-to killer work outfit that is anything but boring. This week’s Street Style features two totally different ways to wear stripes, along with bold accessories from no-one other than Halcyon Artistry!

Street Style: Sparkle & Snow

streetstylesparkleandsnow-header
It looks like it going to be a White Christmas in Connecticut. As Street Style fashionistas, we are bringing on the sparkle and winter boots. Last night, Jen and myself were lucky enough to score tickets to John Mayer’s concert at the Webster Bank Arena (in Bridgeport, CT where John Mayer was born!) & it was so amazing because John Mayer was raised in Fairfield, Connecticut and he was totally feeling his roots. It definitely showed through his heart-felt performance.
It was a cold night and I opted for a not-too-warm festive top with some booties and black leggings (these pictures are pre-jacket!).  Jen was a bit more bundled up an adorable hat & scarf.

Are you like me and love sequins and sparkle this time of year?  What is your favorite winter accessory?

Street Style: Statement Dresses

Sometimes it is important to invest in your dress! You would be surprised how many boutiques offer sales that are extremely affordable yet you are still wearing a piece that is one of a kind.  This week on #streetstyle Jamie & Jen did just that.  Statement dresses that are unique, classy and feminine made this week’s blog post one of our favorites yet!

Street Style: Transition Day to Night

Sometimes I have those days where I am having a crazy day at work and am counting down for my evening plans such as grabbing dinner with a friend, heading to a concert, or even just happy hour. If I have time, I love to get out of my work clothes and put on something a little more night-time appropriate but if you have a quick 10 minutes, you can change up an entire look. This week’s #StreetStyle post is all about transitioning your work attire to your play attire in less than 10 minutes.

“I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes.”

Are you ready for our new #streetstyle post?  This week is all about the boots!  These boots are made for walkin’ and they are also made to look freakin adorable! 🙂  Fall activities call for fall attire and we decided that boots, floral, and layers are the best way to stay comfortable yet look fashionably chic.  Our goal with street style is to put together real, affordable looks for the every day fashion-obsesed girl.
