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.

Wine Weekend

  wine This weekend I am venturing to Fredericksburg, TX for a wine weekend Bachlorette party! I am SO excited for a little getaway!  However, packing is a fun challenge to take on [not].  Here are some of my tips and tricks and my fun picks for this weekend! The key is to have items that can be used multiple ways.  This gives you more options but with less bulk in your duffel!  Also, choose items that can mix easily (basic colors). First off the perfect bag: vb

Vera Bradley [Grand Travler]

Here are some of my ideal outfit combos!

outfit 1

I love Chambray tops because they can be used in so many ways! This is a comfy cool look for the car ride to over and will be perfect to wear to the casual dinner we are going to that evening!

outfit3

I wanted an outfit that could go from day to night.  This is the day for wine tours so I figured I can throw my sandals in my bag and either dress it up or dress it down! I also get cold easily so throw in the chambray shirt for a bit of warmth but not adding bulk to the bag I carry!  You might notice the repeat of the maxi skirt from above.  Thats because it is a convertible dress/skirt… BRILLIANT!

Outfit 3 is for a little fancier dinner out.  I am OBSESSED with this look! Such fun summer colors!

Threads Thursday: Wonderful Whites

Happy Thursday y’all! After the trip to New York I am LOVING white.  I am usually a color girl but I am loving this crisp neutral pallet.  You can easily add a pop of your favorite color or make a statement by going ALL white.  You can even mix white with winter white and it looks fabulous!  Here are some of the current things I am lusting after!

whiteiswonderful

Cotton Eyelet Spaghetti Strap Romper [Loft]- Rompers are all the rage and a great way to stay cool this summer.  I love the simplicity of this white number.

Amanda Logo Clutch [Tory Burch]- Great for an evening out and a classic piece!

Embellished Perfect Button Down [Ann Taylor]- The name says it all! Such a fun twist on a classic piece.

Peacock Cluster Necklace [Ann Taylor]- This great necklace is embellished and I love me some SPARKLE! Would go great with so many different outfits!

Floral Jacquard Jacket [Loft]- The structure of this jack is fabulous! Again another versatile piece that you should have in your wardrobe!

Mirror Embellished Top [Ann Taylor]- This blouse is so versatile and fun! You can dress it up with a skirt and blazer or down with a pair of skinnies…. Also, will keep you cool in the HOT summer.

Thea Chain Should Slouchy Tote [Tory Burch]- I love the structure of this bag with the hint of fun in the tassel! I have been obsessed with tassels lately so of course this was a pick for me!

Bubble Stretch Bracelet [Ann Taylor]- I love the fact this bracelet is stretch and not a bangle.  I have such small wrist that bangles tend to fall right off my hand! Love the gold and white contrast and would go great with so many outfits.

Striped Organza Skirt [Ann Taylor]- Y’all this skirt is EVERYTHING.  I have been ogling it since i saw it in a window display in NY.  So fun yet chic at the same time.

What is your favorite trend right now?  Do you have a staple white piece that you LOVE?
