Perfect Pearls

I am a huge fan of big, bold costume jewelry but nothing compares to classic, quality jewelry like these amazing freshwater pearl earrings from Laguna Pearl. There is something so delicate about the perfect pair of pearl earrings that makes any outfit a little more classy.  I wore a very casual outfit I threw together for running some errands with Gavin and putting on these earrings instantly dressed up the look.

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!

Wednesday’s Look for Less

My rule of thumb is to splurge on the classics and save on the trends. A LBD that you will wear to every other fwedding? Splurge. That romper that you want to wear for a bachelorette party? Save. A classic trench for every season?  Splurge. You get the picture! Invest in your classics and get the look for less on some looks to save some cash for your next fashion investment.  Once in a while, however, something is so unique, that you simply have to splurge in fear that you may never come across it again.  This is best to do on vacation, especially since there will be a fun story behind the piece!

What pieces do you think are work splurging on?

Man up! 2014 Men’s Fashion Trends

Men’s fashion has come back with a vengeance and I am happy that many men are taking interest in their personal style. Levi’s jeans and combat boots just don’t cut it guys! When looking ahead to 2014, think clean yet edgy looks, sort of dapper mad-men style. I am loving the boldness of colorful pocket squares, printed bow ties, and colorful watches for men.

“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.
