Stylish Layers

Happy Hump Day all!

As Old Man Winter continues his strangle hold on the majority of the US (we’re getting hit with our NINTH snowstorm tonight!), keeping warm is my top priority. While it’s important to me, I can’t abandon being stylish!  I think the key to staying warm but stylish is finding coordinating layers to wear.  Try wearing a  turtleneck under your favorite sleeveless or 3/4 length sleeve dress and top it off with a leather jacket.  Take a  full skirt and wear it over one of your dresses (I did that here) .  One of my favorite things to wear is a button up cardigan under a blazer with a statement necklace. Not only am I super warm (got tow layers on!), I’m still stylish!

To my East Coast people, stay warm and be careful out there!

Have a wonderful day!

V Day Look Book

Happy Saturday everyone!

I hope youre having a wonderful weekend so far! About a week ago, a reader requested I do a Valentine’s Day look book. Honestly a look book wasn’t on my radar but she inspired me to do one, so here it is!

V Day Dinner with the Girls:

Some of my best V Day memories are with my girls.  A girl’s night out celebrating calls for a sparkly skirt and colorful heels.  Your fab outfit will have heads turning all night long!

P.S. This is my V Day outfit!

V Day Dinner with your Sweetheart

If you and your sweetie are heading out for V Day, a curve loving dress is the way to go! Dress it up with a statement necklace and add a fun clutch to complete the look.  Trust me, your sweetie wont be able to take his/her eyes off you!

V Day Dinner at Home

Having V Day dinner  at home for many people is a better option than sitting in a crowded restaurant.  Being comfortable doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style! Try a trend (like mixing prints) to elevate your casual look. And remember…romance can happen anywhere!

NYE 2013!

Happy New Year everyone!

Just a quick to post to show what I wore last night.  My girlfriends and I went to dinner at Grand Lux Cafe and hit the casino afterward (Donna won a whopping $17! LOL).  Hanging with my girls and sharing laughs was the best way to bring in the new year!

What did you do for NYE?

Have a wonderful day!

Be Electric!

Happy Monday all!  

Winter has come early for most of us here in States. In my neck of the woods, it has already snowed three times in the past week.  Needless to say, I’m not a happy camper. Shoveling is NOT sexy! So to combat the frigid cold, I wanted to wear something super bright today to warm my spirit.  While it’s natural to gravitate towards wearing dark colors during the colder months, try adding  pops of color to brighten up your Winter outfits.   Before you know it, we’ll be welcoming warm Spring days!

How do you like to brighten up your Winter outfits?

Have a wonderful day!

Weekend Edition: Vacation Mode Pt. 2

Happy Monday all!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I spent my weekend doing housework, laundry and errands…I know SO exciting! LOL

I made sure amidst all the fun I was having that I documented some of  my outfits during my vacation.  Since I didn’t have my trusty tripod I had to rely on my BFF and my godson, Alex to take my pics. It felt good to be casual and not dolled up for work.  I spent the majority of my vacation lounging in bathing suits and shorts.

I promised myself this Summer I wasn’t going to wear  skirted bottom with my tankini.  To be honest I was really self conscious about  my thighs being uncovered  but by the second dip in the pool, all was forgotten!  I love this pic of me in my tankini while on Governor’s Beach in Grand Turk. Thanks Alex for taking such a good pic!
