Mint Monday




Lately I've been less interested in following too many trends and more interested in dressing in clothing that looks timeless, with a bit of trend thrown in. I generally like to play it on the safer/classic side with my clothes and experiment with accessories, especially as I get older and want to have more investment pieces

Today was one of those days that I built a look around a shoe. I bought these DVF mint pumps a few weeks ago before I left for London and have been obsessed with them ever since. I want to find a way to wear them all winter long, despite their distinctly spring color. I paired them with this classic blazer from Banana Republic and my current favorite stretch jeggings from New York and Company. It's great to be able to mix higher and lower price items but not really be able to tell which was which.

Leather and Plaid


There's something so appealing about wearing two different style aesthetics and combining them into a look that suits your style. I am such a fan of combining expensive and inexpensive pieces of fashion and this outfit combination is the ultimate representation of that.

I got the inspiration for this look from a stylist friend of mind and I have to say that this is a new favorite print/material combination.

This leather-trim pencil skirt from designer Manon Baptiste is so amazing in terms of the fit and feel. It's my first piece from Navabi and I have to say, I was incredibly impressed with the quality. I paired it with this tartan blouse from Ashley Stewart and my new, trusty (and painful) Altuzarra for Target booties. I keep waiting to break these in, hoping they will feel better soon. I'll let you know when the wait is over, haha.

Feeling Fab in Kelly Brook for Simply Be



Now that I'm back from London, I feel like I'm still playing major catch up. Work has been so busy and I'm officially in the home stretch of wedding planning. It's pretty overwhelming.

When I was there, I wore this amazing white dress from the new collection from Kelly Brook. She's a very famous TV personality and model in the UK and is well known for her sexy style and her fabulous curves. So her collection is definitely designed to flatter a curvy gal's body -- and that obviously works very well for plus.

So I wore the dress with this oversize coat, but I was so busy being a tourist and being overwhelmed by the amazing fashion that I didn't get a great, clear shot of the look. So what's a girl to do but re-shoot it at home! It's not quite the same, but hey, at least you can see how fab this dress really is.

London Fashion: Trench Coat Moment


Last night I met up with some dear friends in London for a late dinner after a day of shopping and shows. It was just what the doctor ordered for my last full night in this wonderful city. I have so many outfit posts to go through and will be sharing them in the coming days, but I particularly love this look, so I just couldn't wait.

London Fashion Week: Outfit One



Hi all!

I'm here in England and there are so many posts to go through, but I wanted to start with the basics, an outfit post!

Yesterday was the first official day of London Fashion Week and we had just about perfect weather. It was sunny and warm and I loved it so much.

I swear the second you step out of the cab at Somerset House (where the shows take place), you're hit with an instant fashion adrenaline rush. The people here are truly the most fashionable in the world and there are so many amazing different styles and aesthetics. I love it so much here.

Vintage Sunset and London News


Last night on my way home, I caught one of the most absolutely stunning sunsets and I couldn't resist the urge to snap a few photos, especially since I was wearing my favorite new jumpsuit from Simply Be. 

This jumpsuit has a great pant length and is super chic and easy. I love that jumpsuits are comfortable yet very fashionable. Its from the Claire Richards line, which is one of my favorites from SimplyBe.com. And with a bit of chill in the air tonight, it was the first time I could really wear long sleeves all summer comfortably. (It also helped that the sleeves were sheer).

I have a bit of exciting news too!
