Fashion Friday: Shorts + Sweaters

Friday, October 24, 2014

Because fall just started we are really into mixing chunky sweaters with a pair of neutral shorties.  It gives just enough warmth, but you aren't tugging at your top all day trying to get some air... because we all know how this time of year is cool in the mornings and evenings, but during the day can get pretty warm.  How do you feel about this trend?  Let us know what you want featured on our Fashion Fridays...

October Style Guide

Sunday, October 19, 2014

October is the month of layering.  The weather starts getting brisker, but not too chilly.  Time to break out the light-weight sweaters, scarves and accessories!  Craving a little fall fashion... check out these 6 ideas to get you started... 

1.Brimming with Excitement
Hats can make even the simplest outfits chic. Choose a dark wide brimmed hat to keep a modern look.

2. 70's Inspiration
Incorporate retro hues into your wardrobe.  (We know you 60's babies are loving this comeback!)

3. Over-sized with love
 The best part of fall is the go-to-comfy big sweater. Mix it with a pair of dark skinnies or distressed denim for different patterns/textures. 

4. Bring on the Burgundy 
Get used to seeing this color this season because it has launched everywhere! We love it with neutrals!

5. Varsity Blues
Military jackets are the best outerwear in the fall! They aren't too heavy but still are warm... oh and stylish. 

6. Pretty Pastels 
To make pastels work in the fall... pair it with an unstructured piece to make it pop. 

Fashion Friday: Double Denim

Friday, October 17, 2014

One trend to be on the lookout this season is layering with denim.  Give the traditional denim look a different spin by mixing textures and pair it with pastels.  Some of our favorite celebrity style crushes are rocking the denim shirt with jeans! Which look do you like best?

Casual Chic
Keep an eye out for boyfriend blazers this season, they will be a huge hit.  They are great for an everyday look paired with denim and booties.

The business world doesn't have to be a total fashion drab.  Use colorful blazers with your neutrals to bring out a pop.

Leaving the office to kick off the weekend is no problem, trade in your dress for a print top and leather leggings for a totally different look.

1 Dress, 2 Ways....

The best thing about vests and cardigans... they can change your look instantly and give your wardrobe versatility.  We styled our   L O V E   B L O W S    tank dress with a leather vest as well as a magenta cardigan, giving it two totally different (but equally chic) looks. It's a cross between edgy grunge meets boho with these two outfits.  Which is your favorite?
