I purchased this black blazer a while back from Nordstrom, and since then I have worn it a ton! The more you love something the more you will wear it, so if you don’t love it, then don’t buy it! A black blazer is a definite “Must Have” in any women’s wardrobe. It is such a versatile piece, you can dress it up by pairing it with a pencil skirt, a silk tank and some pumps for work or church, or to create a more casual look pair it with some jeans and a tee and your favorite heel or wedge. Simple and versatile – a black blazer is a key piece you should think about adding to your closet. I have selected several of my favorites at various price points in this post. Happy Shopping!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend!! XOXO!
Here are some of my favorite products of the moment. Valentines day is approaching and if your husband’s or boyfriend’s are anything like mine, they ask you specifically what you want. Even if they don’t ask you, I suggest you give them hints or email them links so you get something you like. I created this gift guide to give you some ideas of what you might want for Valentine’s and it’s super easy to share this entire gift guide with your Valentine or just send a few links of some fun items you want.
This spring it’s all about pastel colors, which I love paired with metallics. Boyfriend jeans are still in, yet cut a slight bit slimmer and they are super chic paired with the pointy toe silver heel in this post that I found at Last Call for an amazing price! This shoe is so versatile and can be worn with so many different things from a pencil skirt, to a pair of black leather pants, to some simple white jeans. The Rebecca Minkoff Handbag is my favorite item in this post – it comes in a perfect shade called “Putty” which will compliment all of the spring hues this season! A great investment bag that you will carry everywhere – dressy or casual!
If you are ever stuck on what to wear black on black is always a good choice! It’s slimming, elegant, edgy and chic – one of my favorite looks by far! This look could take you many places, on a date night, a girls night out, or even a concert. I love pairing an all black ensemble with a chic accessory because it really stands out against the all black color palette – my all time favorite accessory – my leopard clutch (AND IT’S 30% OFF WITH CODE HITREFRESH – OFFER VALIDTHROUGH 1/23!) INFACT, ALL SHOES AND HANDBAGS ARE 30% OFF ON PIPERLIME.COM - VALID THROUGH 1/23. I have added some of my favorite spring shoes under the “Shop” tab on my blog. Happy Shopping!
There are 2 wardrobe “Must Haves” in this post – a leopard clutch and leather leggings – both versatile pieces that can be worn to a ton of places and paired with a lot in any women’s wardrobe!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend!! XOXO!!
My husband was on a business trip last week in Jackson Hole and decided to fly me up at the last minute – what a treat! I was so excited to see the snow and excited to wear some of my cold weather attire! It’s hard to look stylish, yet stay warm so here are a few tips to make sure you stay looking chic when you are all bundled up!
1.) Layer, layer, and more layering – This will keep you warm yet keep you looking polished and put together. I had on 3 shirts underneath this jacket – a black fitted long sleeve tee, a black turtle neck, and finally a chunky black sweater. All of the shirts were fitted except the sweater which allowed my coat to fit over all of my layers.
2.) Wear fitted bottoms – This will balance out your heavy layers on top and keep you looking slim, it will also elongate your legs and who doesn’t want that?! If it is really cold you can always put a pair of long johns under your jeans or leggings.
3.) Choose chic cold weather accessories – I always love to top any winter look off with a chunky scarf – (Love Quotes is my favorite brand of scarves)- the bigger the better, just wrap it around your neck 2-3 times to create an effortless and chic look. Another one of my favorite cold weather accessories are my leather fingerless gloves that I purchased at Intermix (they are currently on sale). I even wear them in Dallas when it’s cold with a leather jacket and jeans.
I hope all of you have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for reading and shopping on my blog! XOXO!!
Spring is approaching and along with starting to build your spring wardrobe, it’s just as important to start thinking about your spring make-up! Each season there are always new colors and shades put out by tons of brands, so I feel it’s my job to let you know what the “It” colors are and who the up and coming artists and designers are. Well, I have found an AMAZING make up line for you – Charlotte Tilbury – the industry’s “IT” girl! Some of her clients are Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, and Drew Barrymore – ok, she had me at Kate Moss! I adore Kate Moss and her amazing style, but I have always loved her make-up! Now, I can use the same line she uses. One of my favorite quotes by Charlotte:
“I know for myself that if I’m lacking energy, putting on a little makeup can genuinely turn my mood around,” she says.
Charlotte Tilbury also offers some amazing You Tube tutorials to teach you how to apply make-up and create entire looks as she shares her make up secrets and tips. I watched one the other day and it was very informative, the way she teaches you to do eye make-up is amazing! She used to be the Creative Director for Tom Ford’s make up line so her some of her colors are similar to his, the quality is amazing, yet it’s about a third of the price of Tom Ford. In November of 2014, her line launched at the Nordstrom in Northpark – that’s the only place in Dallas that carries her line. You can get her entire line on line at Nordstrom.
Click here to watch one of her You tube videos on the “Cat Eye” – very informative and entertaining!
Her lipsticks are fabulous, the colors are so gorgeous! I’m obsessed with the lip color Bitch Perfect ( and yes, I love the name too) – it’s a nude, peachy pink color that will be my go to color for spring – I LOVE IT!! I also ordered a tube in Coachella Coral – this one has a little bit more color than Bitch Perfect. The lip liner is a must as well, it really helps your lipstick stay on – and the gloss just gives your lips the perfect finishing touch! The eye shadow palette’s are beautiful! I love that they come with 4 shades so all the colors you need are all there, I got “Dolce Vita” – these are warm shades of copper and browns – perfect for almost any eye color.
If you are in the market for some fun, new spring time make up I highly recommend trying Charlotte Tilbury! I know I will!!
Thank you so much for reading and shopping on my blog! Have a great day! XOXO!
I have worn this moto jacket a ton over the last 2 months or so – it’s so cozy and chic! There’s only one size left at Intermix and it’s sold out everywhere else, but I found a great one that is super cute and very similar and much cheaper…at Anthropologie! This is a fabulous transition jacket into spring because of the versatile color. You can wear it paired with black as I did here, but a way to wear it more on the neutral side is to pair it with some light gray denim, a cream tank top, and some amazing gray suede pumps or ivory ankle booties (ON SALE) – this is how I will be wearing it in the spring. A super chic and versatile jacket that will take you right into spring in style!
Thank you for reading and shopping on my blog! Have a very blessed week! XOXO!!
Happy Friday! I love Rails plaid shirts, they are one of my favorites because they can easily be dressed up or down – perfect for the weekend! They are super soft and comfy which I love. They come in a wide array of plaid prints and the fit is perfect. I’m wearing an XS and it’s perfectly over-sized just a touch. The key is to just tuck the front in and leave the back out, also leave the first two buttons un-buttoned for the perfect effortless and chic look!
Have a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for reading my blog!! XOXO!!
Hi Everyone, I hope all of you are having a fabulous Wednesday! I wanted to alert y’all about one of my favorite sales of the season at one of my favorite Dallas boutiques – Tootsies!!! They have everything marked down from shoes, to handbags, to designer jeans (my personal fave), furs, dresses, coats, and tops. Photographed above are some of my top picks. I scored these adorable gray wedges by Pelle Moda (see above), they were $105 marked down from $190. The color is so versatile, the perfect wedge for spring and did I mention how comfortable they are?! I’ll be pairing them with these amazing light gray skinny jeans by Citizens of Humanity (one of my favorite denim labels) that I also got at their sale (see above) – they were only $129 marked down from $198. This pale shade of gray is perfect, a staple that every women should add to her spring wardrobe! I promise you will wear these gray jeans all the time!! No matter what you are in the market for, I have no doubt you will walk away with some amazing finds from the “Tootsies Takes Off” Sale!!
$100 GIFT CARD GIVAWAY to Tootsies!! Here’s how you enter:
Happy Monday!! I normally don’t blog about food, however, this shake is so AMAZING I just had to share it with all of you! I have been drinking this shake for breakfast for the last 3 years, yes, every morning for the last 3 years I have had this shake for breakfast. It keeps me full until lunch, helps me maintain my weight, but the main reason is because it’s full of essential vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and cancer fighting elements that are SOOOO good for your body. It makes feel good from the inside out! You can get this amazing meal protein powder at Whole Foods or you can order it on amazon.com here:
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope all of you had a fun and safe time bringing in the New Year!
Gray is a huge color this season and I LOVE IT!! I usually pair it with blacks and burgundies, however, I’m really loving the neutral look this winter. Winter white is so pretty and looks really chic paired with shades of gray. Some people are afraid of wearing lighter colors in the winter, but you can pull it off if you keep everything neutral, even your handbag and shoes. As much as a black handbag and pair of shoes are a wardrobe must, so is a neutral shoe and handbag – and both can be worn all year round. This is also a great transition look into spring. Grays, ivories and pastels are going to be big this spring so anything in this neutral category is a good investment piece to buy now, wear now and into the spring season!
Thank you for reading my blog! I’m grateful for all of you! Have a blessed weekend!!
