Style Blazer 50 States of Style

As a blogger, we kind of put ourselves out there and you never know what kind of partnership or features may come your way.  When I was contacted by Style Blazer for a large feature as part of their 50 States of Style, I was so honored and humbled by the experience.  It is a huge honor to be chosen as Style Blazer’s most stylish in Connecticut as part of their 50 States of Style. Check out the feature here!

Black Chic & Bold Accessories

Unlike most women, I have very little black in my closet. Of course I have the simple LBD and a plethora of black dress pants, but most of my favorite tops, dresses, and statement pieces are full of vibrant colors. Every now and then, however, I choose a classic black outfit and have fun with color with accessories & makeup. This casual LBD is so simple and comfy and was a perfect neutral to go with some pink lips and bold Halcyon artistry accessories! These photos are from the modeling shoot I did with the lovely designers from Halcyon.
Are you a color or a neutral lover?

I am always on a mission to find statement pieces that are unique.  There are hundreds of boutiques but let’s be honest, finding each little boutique across the country for awesome unique items is a ton of work.  Talk about shop til’ you drop!  That is why I love Boutikey- convenience, variety, and awesome deals.  I’ve got my eye on this adorable Indie Ella Beaded Clutch (below.)
