From work to work out

Athliesure wear is a fun trend right now in fashion and I am ALL about it.  With how busy our lives are I love that there are options of fashion that can take you from the office to the gym and you look good at both places! Plus, it saves time and money having clothes that serve a dual role.

So I partnered up with one of my favorite boutiques again Tiger Lily to help showcase athliesure wear!

Blazer Series: Part 2

 

 

Since I started this series I decided I should publish a little “How to” for blazers.  They are so versatile but sometimes that can be really overwhelming when creating an outfit.  So here ya go!

picstitch

Step One: Blazing it up. Find a great structured blazer.  If you don’t have one already I would recommend black or navy as they are very neutral and can go with many blouse options.

Step Two: Top of your game. A soft blouse/ t-shirt or sleeveless shirt to go under the blazer. For a more casual occasion I go with a plain t-shirt and for a dressier occasion a blouse. Feel free to spice it up with a pattern or a bright color! Just remember your shoes and accessories will need to compliment one another.

Step Three: A mean jean. A well fitting pair of jeans.  Remember jeans can be colored or regular.  Whatever you feel most comfortable in or whatever color is suiting your mood! I prefer a dark wash denim with my black blazer. It gives it that dressed up crisp look. But when I am going more casual a light wash jean is my “go-to”.

Step Four: Pump it up.  A nice pump really helps balance the jean and blazer look.  Gives you classy and edgy look. Go for a fun color (magenta) or pattern (leopard)!

Step Five: Bling, Bling.  A statement necklace is the icing on this outfit.  If you haven’t gone bold with your shoes, or top here is where you can make your impact.

Step Six: Show em’ what you got.  Have fun in your new outfit!

Watching for Trends

A watch is a timeless statement piece.  A great place to find a great statement for a great deal is from invaluable.com.  From their About Us tab on their website, “Invaluable (formerly Artfact) is the world’s largest online auction marketplace of fine and decorative arts, antiques, collectibles, and estate sales.”

The watch below from invaluable.com’s women’s watch page caught my eye and I knew I needed to style it…. but I will say I had a hard time just choosing one! I wanted a bright Fall look with lots of patten and textures.  I also wanted to stick with one major store if possible and I almost did it!  However, to find the perfect scarf to compliment the outfit I ventured to the always go-to Target! Shout out to Ann Taylor for having so many great Fall/Winter looks to choose from!

This outfit works both for work and a night out for drinks! I think ALL of these pieces could also really work into an already existing wardrobe to help keep things fresh and fun… especially the watch.

Mustard Madness: Part 1

In Texas this time of year is transition.  Some days are cool some days are warm.  One of my favorite colors during this is mustard.  It is so Fall like but works really well with brighter colors and other fall colors.  It is also a little unexpected which I love!

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Clutch Situation

clutch

Ladies, know that the perfect clutch is key for tailgating.  You need to be able to fit your necessities but be fashionable and not have to lug around a huge bag!

I found the BEST clutch on Etsy a few years back. [The shop I ordered from isn’t in business BUT I found a match!] You can monogram it even! It comes in a TON of colors too! This envelope clutch can be carried or has a chain that can easily comes out to carry cross bodied or shoulder style! Even better? THEY ARE $20!!

I have one similar to the above picture! The camel color goes with everything!
