White After Labor Day

Happy Monday all.  I hope you all had a good weekend.  Believe it or not, I am actually really glad it is Monday.  This may be the first time ever.  I started my yoga teacher training this past weekend, and it was INTENSE.  We went Friday 5:30-9, Saturday 8-6, Sunday 8-7.  We took six classes plus a ton of learning.  I am physically and mentally exhausted.  We have 9 weeks of this over the next 9 months (one a month).  My body may never recover…

Anyway, on to today's topic of white after Labor Day.  I hope no one follows that silly rule.  And if you do, stop.  If you live in the south, it stays summer time hot long after Labor Day, so there is no reason not to dress like it.  And when you are ready for fall, there are plenty of ways to transition your white into fall.  

I paired my white denim with burgundy booties and a navy top.  The darker colors help transition the white, plus adding booties with anything can make it feel a little more like fall.  

Shirt: J. Crew; Jeans: Gap (similar); Shoes: Shoemint (similar)

So the lesson for today is White After Labor Day is a DO.

Have a good day!

Fashion Week Review

Spring/Summer '15 fashion week has come to an end! So now it is time for a little review of the week with some favorite shows and of course street style.

Not surprising, I could not get enough of the Kate Spade presentation.  The cuts, the colors, the prints.  It was all amazing.  And I am madly in love with all of the scallops!

Emerging' designer Whitney Pozgay's line Whit was really amazing.

And now for a little street style…

So what did you think about the Spring/Summer shows?  Who were your favorites?  Anyone you were disappointed in?

Have a great weekend!

A Lesson in Layering

Happy Thursday all!  Aren't you glad it is Thursday and not Monday?  I am! 

You should know by now that I love to layer.  And today's lesson is that you can layer even when it is hot outside.  Layering doesn't have to be bulky or cumbersome. 

I layered a sleeveless knit dress under a short sleeved chambray shirt to create a new look without adding too much extra fabric (most of the time I layer the chambray under the dress).

Shirt: J. Crew Factory; Dress (worn as a skirt): J. Crew (similar); Shoes: Vince Camuto (love these)

Have a great day!

Target x Altuzarra

This Sunday, the newest designer collaboration with Target launches!  This collection is with Altuzarra,  who was named the 2014 CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year.  There are over 50 pieces in the collection (including clothing and accessories), and nothing is over $100, which is pretty great if you ask me!

Here is a look at some of my favorites

Apparently I love everything black.. You can see the entire collection here.

So what do you think about the collection?  Who will be at Target on Sunday morning (or shopping online)?

Tuesday Shoesday Week #110

Happy Tuesday all!  Hope Monday wasn't too bad.  Mine was busy busy.  

So, what happens when a fashion and beauty magazine team up with an e-commerce site to create a shoe collection?  That would be the Gilt Hearts Glamour fall shoe collection! These shoes are not only gorgeous, but also perfectly priced. 

This 9 piece collection ranges from $89 to $139 and are available on Gilt.  

I don't know about you, but I need those leopard booties, the red pumps and the loafers for sure!

Have a great Tuesday!

Gingham and a Bow

Another weekend gone, another Monday here.  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  

Today's look is another super slow transition to fall.  I have worn this skirt several times on the blog (like here), but today is geared a little bit towards fall.  

I find that pairing this skirt with the black blouse and these lace up bootie sandals, you can achieve a more fall-ish feel without having to have a heat stroke. 

Shirt: Loft (similar); Skirt: Banana Republic (similar); Shoes: Shoemint (similar)
Have a great day!

Fashion Week Woes

Happy Friday friends!  We have almost made it to another weekend!

Yesterday started another fashion week in New York.  I have a confession- Fashion Week makes me insane.  I become slightly crazed.  And by slightly, I mean seriously.  I become obsessed with looking at everything from the shows, reading all of the tweets, the blog posts, looking at instagram, dreaming of being in New York… I can't control it.

And every year, I think "Next year … Next year will be my year."  I've wanted to go to fashion week for what seems like forever (I was reading Vogue at 13, what do you expect?).

I think of myself as a goal oriented person.  I love to make lists (almost to an OCD degree), and I love to mark things off my lists.  And on my list of 101 Things I Want to Do Before I Turn 30, #44 is Attend a New York Fashion Week show.  So, I am making it my goal to attend next year's fashion week.  I don't know how I am going to get there, but I am going to.

So now I am going to formulate my year long plan of getting to NY.  Who wants to join me?

Have a great weekend!
