Happy New Year!!

I totally love this outfit! Small details like the stitching on these pockets, the lacing on these boots or the zippers on the jacket, make an outfit interesting. Look for details like this when doing your own shopping! Jacket, Jeans, Graphic Tee, Necklace - Express, Boots - Dsw.com, Earrings- Bijou Brigitte

It's Christmas vacation! I love this dress and have worn it about 200 different ways. It's a simple, quite boring jumper on it's own, allowing me to add my own creativity to a clean palette. If you live in my area go check out all the accessories at Homespun Treasures. I love it all! Happy vacation to all of you! (I am actually baking cookies in my pj's with my kids, this outfit was from the other day.)


T'was a few days before Christmas...

T'was a few days before Christmas and all through the studio I was hurrying to get everybody's gift cards ready for pick up, and all the makeup orders filled. Now it's family and friends time!

One little black dress...

This is Marilyn. She so graciously agreed to be my model for this project. Love her! 
A simple black dress from NY&CO.

Ready for a Holiday party by adding an infinity scarf (worn as a shrug) from Express, sparkly accessories and clutch from Homespun Treasures, and Steve Madden heels.

A dressy option...Cardigan from Express, Belt from Wet Seal, Accessories from Homespun Treasures, and Boots from Aldo.

Making it work appropriate by adding a cardigan from NY&CO, Handbag and Accessories from Homespun Treasures, and Steve Madden Heels.

An awesome weekend outfit...(Can you believe it's the same black dress!) Denim Jacket from Old Navy, Scarf and Handbag from Homespun Treasures, and Shoes from Plato's Closet.

Marilyn said this is one of the most comfortable dresses in her wardrobe. Ladies, don't "save" your little black dress for a special occasion. Wear it 3 days a week, nobody will know, if you mix it up!


Another day of bridal makeup...

I literally put this outfit together in 5 minutes, in order to make it on time for a bridal makeup appointment. I get there only to find out they were running late. (Sigh) It was a great day!

I love this super cozy sweater from Pac Sun, layered with a dress I've had for a few years from Charlotte Russe. Scarf is also from Pac Sun. Belt from The Buckle, Boots from Charlotte Russe, Tights from http://www.hue.com/ and Earrings from AE.


It's Party Time!

Off to a Christmas party! What better way to celebrate than in bright tights and sparkles!
My heart is happy knowing I am surrounded by my amazing family and friends, not just at the Holidays but all the time!

Is bigger always better?

Is bigger always better? Well, today it is. Wide leg pants, chunky necklace and bold heels!

When doing wide leg pants I like to do a few bold pieces, while keeping things fitted on top for great balance.

My workday, and love of tights.

My workdays consist mostly of meeting with clients and being on my feet. I know, I know, you are asking yourself, why 5" heels then. Because they are comfortable, and they make me happy! (Typically I wear flats or 2" heels when SHOPPING with a client) Tights also make me happy! I have them in almost every color.

I love this somewhat baggy 80's style sweater (mostly because it's striped). It's a bit oversize, thus using the belt to emphasize my waist, and pairing with a slim pencil skirt for balance.

Snow, and a cup of jo...

It's officially winter here in Ohio and I am deciding if I'm ready for it.
Reason # 1 to enjoy it...It's a great opportunity to wear cute layers. 
Reason # 2...You can drink lots of coffee and hot chocolate with friends. The end.

A perfect day...with a perfect bride.

Today I am just so happy! I spent a good portion of my day working with an amazing and super fun bridal party, making them look picture perfect. The wedding colors were olive green and black and it was...awesome! I really wish I had pics to share with you. Hopefully you will be able to see some when my new website is up (hoping by mid-January).

Anyway, my outfit is super comfy and I was in a re-invention mood, therefore, pulling things I have had for awhile but still love.

From the office to dinner...

So, I am taking my new favorite boyfriend shirt from work to a dinner date. Making it very professional by tucking it into my leather skirt and belting it. I simply untucked and belted, and of course added sexy heels for dinner.

To belt or not to belt...

To belt or not to belt is the question of the day. I wore this without the belt to meet with my first client, and just because I love change, I added the belt and removed the necklace for the rest of my day.

My love-hate relationship with PLAID

Typically people either love or hate plaid. I, on the other hand, have a love-hate relationship with it. I love the trendy vibe it has. I hate the sometimes Farmer Johnson feel it can have. Today I love it!
