Novice to Advanced

Up & Down


When you're able to begin mixing together dressy and casual pieces in your wardrobe to create new outfits you know you're moving from a novice to more advanced style. =) 

Here's a great example of how it works.  Take a dressy silk blouse like this one and pair it a pair of distressed cut-off jeans.  Keep your accessories classic and easy and presto, there you have it!

My apologies for my sparce postings the last couple of weeks, I've been having technical difficulties posting my outfits.  Hopefully all is now fixed, and I'm looking forward to posting some great outfits as we begin to transition to fall.  Did I really just type that?  But let's not forget about the rest of the summer, I'm not ready to say good-bye quite yet!

Making Errands Fun

Untitled #166

tiered top 
flat front shorts
tote handbag
tear drop earrings
chunky jewelry
retro shades

There's nothing like a fun outfit to help make all those running around town errands more bearable!  And if this outfit isn't fun, I don't know what is!  If you're a beginner with brights, and a bit intimated, I always recommend pairing them with a neutral.  But, as you grow more confident (and maybe have a little guidance from me!) you can mix and match brights with ease. 

If you need some help mixing and matching those brights, email me at to set up an appointment.

Lemon Yellow

Lemon Yellow

flare jeans 
Loft sleeveless blouse
canvas bag
tortoise sunglasses 
Piperlime sandals

Lemon yellow is one of my favorite colors!  Some women are a little intimidated by it, and you do need the right skin coloring to pull it off, but there's nothing more cheery than wearing a bit of sunshine. 

This sleeveless blouse is also a great layering piece for all seasons.  You can pair it with other brights (pink, blue, green) or neutrals (black, navy, camel).  Lots and lots of options, girls!

Ready for the Weekend

Ready for the Weekend

Short sleeve top 
cutoff shorts
chunky shoes
Slouchy handbag
coral earrings
aviator shades

Wow, where did the time go?!  Here it is Saturday, already.  It's hard to believe that we're half way through July.  I try not to think about it, I like to live in denial that summer will go on forever. 

Today's look demonstrates how you can add a punch of color to a neutral outfit, without looking over done or too matchy, matchy.  Aren't these sandals awesome?!

Summer Conservative

Boden shell
Chino shorts
Summer sandals
FOSSIL vintage handbag
Opi nailpolish

Conservative doesn't have to be boring!  No frump here, my friend. Pairing two colors like taupe and navy, which you may not normally think to wear together, helps keep things interesting and fashion forward.

4th of July Barbecue

4th of July Barbecue

J Crew vintage tank top
Old navy shorts
TOMS peep toe espadrille wedge
J Crew striped handbag
Blue necklace

Independence Day is only a few days away, do you have big plans?! I hope to be out on the lake with my family and friends, weather permitting.  Hopefully, after a full day of sun and fun, I'll be able to keep my eyelids open long enough to catch some local fireworks at dusk.

It goes without saying that every good 4th of July celebration includes a BBQ, festive attire required, of course! =)  So, here's a great look to show off your partiotic spirit in style.

Happy Independence Day everyone!  We have lots to be thankful for in the grand U.S. of A!
