Peppy in peplum

Peplum is wonderful for all figures.  It gives the illusion of curves when you don’t have them or turns the curviest of frames into the ultimate voluptuous pinup.  Peplum allows you to elevate any look by introducing new dimensions and creating stunning silhouettes.  Peplum skirts can be paired with any top (casual or dressy) and peplum tops look incredible with a simple skinny jean or skirt.  And did I mention peplum is perfect for all occasions?

Jean Vest

My new favorite accessory that isn’t really an accessory is the denim vest.  Adding a denim vest to any of your “go to” outfits is the perfect way to update your look and an some edge to your wardrobe.  You can seriously do no wrong! I recommend experimenting with washes (dark or light), studs, rips, or frayed edges and of course layering to reach denim perfection.

Ring in the Bling

I am definitely a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, so accessories are crucial for completing my outfits.  I find that rings can be a subtle and somewhat unexpected way to add a little polish and excitement to your look.  Enjoy the bling!

turquoise is timeless and perfect for every occasion.  i also love the turquoise, gold, yellow, silver, pink combo.

Mint Tingle

I am paler than pale so I was slightly terrified of mint.  Pastels and pale are never a good mix or so I thought.  I wasn’t fully ready to commit at first so I experimented with mint nail polish and fell in love!  Somehow mint actually made me look tanner…it was like magic!  Not only does mint go with pale, it actually works with a surprisingly broad spectrum of colors and textures.  So I challenge you, find the shade of mint that works best for you and embrace the official color of spring and add some mint to your wardrobe!

perfect mixture of sheer, neon, and mint.  i also love the layered necklaces

Staying Warm in Style

I know it’s hard to believe that it’s still winter, but the groundhog did see his shadow–so I think it’s only fitting to dedicate a post to the chilliness to come (maybe).  Take it from a girl who went to college in Wisconsin, I know it’s easy to get lost in layers and drab colors so my keys to surviving winter are vibrant colors, sensible layers, tights, warm shoes/socks (!), and of course a fabulous scarf.

I love the bright red coat combined with the fabulous scarf and bold tights--this outfit screams confidence and is a wonderful way to keep winter interesting

The look is so classic with a bit of edge--highlighted by layered tights-socks
