Neutralized

Neutral outfit open cardigan with lace dress

I’ve been cozying up to all things knits lately.  So I paired this warm, neutral cardigan with one of my favorite lace dresses.  You may remember I blogged this dress in black before.  It’s a great dress for any season.  I love it in this green color for the holidays.

Happy Wednesday!  Be stylish and be well.  xo

Fur Drama

DSC_4856A little goes a long way…tis the case with fur!  In this case, the long hair fur makes a statement with multiple exclamation marks!!!  The dramatic cascading frames a lapel shaped collar to an otherwise casual cardigan.  The look is visually dramatic and opulent.  It feels luxuriously soft and is incredibly warm.  All the features that make me want to snuggle up to this sweater as the temperatures drop this month.  As I mentioned before, my fashion obsessions during fall and winter shift emphasis to leather and fur.  Thus, a simple pairing with faux leather pants and a pair of show-stopping heels rounds out laid back luxe with an edgy flair!

DSC_4971DSC_4560Fortuitously, I stumbled across this pair of Giorgio Armani fabulousness at Barneys New York outlet.  There were only two pairs left at an obscenely discounted price and one was my size?!  In a situation like this, I’m really only left with one choice!  That’s right, I quickly scooped it up and made room for it in the closet. 😉 Without a doubt, I have a weakness for shoes!

Glittery Glam

DSC_4196Quick!!  Go grab your sunglasses because you are about to look at a whole lot of BLING!  Shimmering, glittery, and metallic sequins bling.  Now that it’s finally December, I want to focus on holiday looks for all those upcoming parties, luncheons, and dinners this month!  And what better to ignite a festive, holiday spark than sequins?!  These pants are from the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection which sold out, unfortunately.  However, you can still recreate this look with other sequin pants such as this gold pair or this black pair for those a little less daring.  The rule is to keep the accessories and the remainder of the look simple and to a minimum.  You will be party-ready in your glittering sequins pants!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Reflect

DSC_3359The imminent arrival of the holiday season has me gravitating towards all things glittery and festive such as this metallic skirt.  Because this skirt is so highly reflective I kept the remainder of the look muted and subdued.  Although I don’t typically wear slogan shirts, this Zara top struck a chord in me.  It just happened to be a moment where I needed this reminder.  It’s amazing how powerful words can be because this shirt truly reminds me to reflect and project belief in thyself!

Chanel Tweed

DSC_2169I’m at the Park Hotel in the San Francisco East Bay where the French Château style architecture adds to the charm and elegance of this hotel.  Using this as my inspiration, I started this outfit with this Zara skirt.  This tweed skirt is undeniably, reminiscent of the iconic Chanel tweed.  And what better brand to epitomize Parisian fashion than Chanel?  I usually gravitate towards edgier pieces, but was drawn to this skirt  by it’s modern reiteration with its zipper details.  My natural inclination would be to dress down this skirt with a white tee and a leather jacket.  But today, I wanted to challenge myself to a look which would stretch my own personal style.  Thus, I paired it with a button down shirt instead and then added pieces with colors extrapolated from the skirt.  Lastly, to finish off my French inspired look I grabbed none other than my Chanel bag!  The pièce de résistance!

Grey Zone

DSC_1720_2Like an annual tradition, every winter I tell myself grey is the new black.  It’s probably my most beloved color.  It is genuinely a neutral color covering all colorless shades between black and white.  And because it is achromatic, or colorless, it pairs with ANY color.  That’s a beautiful thing!  However, in spite of it, I decided to wear this achromatic color as a monochromatic look.  This grey on grey with bold stripes and pinstripes ensemble looks casually chic together!  Lastly, for that effortless vibe, a grey slouchy beanie finishes off this monochromatic look.

DSC_1740_2DSC_1862_2DSC_1682_2DSC_1747_2DSC_1908_2DSC_1831_2I picked up these Zara shorts while in New York.  The black is available online right now.  I think this pinstripe version will be available online soon.  So check their site in the next couple of weeks.  It’s a great staple!
