blessings {a month early}

taking a little break from posts after our little blessing surprised us with her early arrival!  will be back, sooner than later!

wiggle room

the always classic sheath or wiggle-dress is an easy go to for just about every body type.   the fitted bodice and pencil skirt elongate the leg and {as long as the skirt is not too tight} slims your entire body!  notice all the necklines- a great update to this simple silhouette!


mix not match

a great example of {bold} mixed prints done well!   the two-tone preppy stripes tone down and modernize the all-over animal print jacket.  trying to be too matchy with an all-over animal print can end up looking cheap and like you are trying way too hard-- sorry, sometimes the truth hurts!  


{color} navy & pink

a super girly palette to please any gal's feminine side!  the preppy combination of navy and hot pink can be modernized with hints of taupe, multiple shades of pink and/or lighter neutrals.

blank canvas

a simple, chic dress perfect for the {slow} transition into fall!  this blank canvas can go a multitude of directions with the right accessories-- a bright purple belt or animal print pumps or even a graphic print jacket.  this dress is something to carry you season after season!


dream weaver

something sure to have caught your eye these last few months-- straw! from handbags to footwear and jewelry, this throw back texture has made quite a statement this summer.  multi-colored options {shown & inspired by prada's collection} are a definite favorite!
