Daisy Does It

On the hanger, this daisy maxi looked frumpy, however I am so excited that after deciding to buy it, it’s such a versatile skirt. The high slits help add some edge to the skirt.  Over the weekend, I scored some amazing deals at the local outlets at Banana Republic, PacSun, and J. Crew. I tried on some things that I normally wouldn’t and was happy with the outcome.

What’s your most recent, out-of-your-comfort-zone purchase?

Berry Layers

Berryfall

 

 

As much as we do not want to admit or even think about, fall is right around the corner.  However, the beauty of the transitional period of weather is the fabulous mixed you can do with your summer and fall wardrobe to put together an eclectic look.  A summer maxi layered with a plain black tank and a jean vest is the perfect look that can be transitioned from 75 degree weather to 60 degree weather since the layers are so relaxed and effortless.  The introduction of berry colors such as Essie Plumberry and the gorgeous Clarin’s lipstick shade in Aubergine.  The studded Michael Kors cross body and the ECHO Black Studded wedges make the perfect statement for the “almost-fall” look, along with gold accessories such as GUESS’s Chase gold-tine watch pictured above.

How are you mixing your summer and fall pieces?

The New Mini Skirt

Sometimes it is ok to leave the sexy mini-skirt at home and look just as stunning in a long dress or long skirt.  These floor length pieces give off an elegant and earthy vibe.  Get some high heels and throw on that maxi skirt that has been sitting in your closet.
