Back in Business (attire)

Hi everyone!  Took a little hiatus for a few months, and now I’m back in business!

Spring has sprung, so it’s time to take all the Fall/Winter pieces in our closets and find new ways to re-purpose them for the warmer weather.

First up:  J.Brand leather skinnies

I love a crisp, striped button-down, and I wear this particular J.Crew basic for work all the time. But for a day of shopping or dinner with friends, instead of pairing it with jeans or capris, I prefer something a little more unexpected. These J.Brand leather pants are such a workhorse in my wardrobe (worth every penny!), and I love them with this look. Add some Prada sunnies, and cute cap-toe ballet flats, and we’ve got casual sophistication… my favorite 🙂

Welcome to my fashion and style blog!

It’s been long overdue for me to share my creativity and passion with the masses. I, like many others before me, have long suffered from the compulsion to memorize every new item from my favorite stores and designers, and dream of new and interesting ways to put those items together. It often wakes me in the middle of the night…”OMG, what if I wore the Zara coat, with the Valentino shoes, the Chanel glasses, and the J Brand leather skinnies… yes, YES!”

Or when I see a cool pair of ankle booties on one of my favorite bloggers or celebs, and I subsequently spend the next two hours, manically searching online to find them, which leads me to then find five fabulous variations of said ankle bootie, all of which I purchase in a fit of online binge-shopping… (we’ve all done it, it’s okay to admit it).

People always tell me that my outfits are “cool”, so I must be doing something right.

So it’s time I embrace it all. When I find that perfect outfit, or those five (*cringe*) perfect ankle booties, I will share it with you, in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, it will inspire you, too. Because that’s what fashion is all about, right? Buying a new dress that makes you feel like a supermodel, and being soooo excited to wear it the next day that you can barely sleep. Or simply being inspired by someone else, and getting excited to look in your own closet and put together an outfit that makes you feel happy, stylish, edgy, pretty, unique — whatever you’re going for.

I hope I can help you achieve that, by sharing what’s running through my head… as neurotic as that may be  🙂

Enjoy!
