camo & stripes

On this little blog, I write a lot about "modern-day classics," and today's look is a fantastic example of those modern-day classics coming together to create a cool and easy-to-pull-off outfit. Camouflage, a red handbag and the eternally chic, Chanel brooch, anchor this look while also adding just the right amount of interest. 

Camouflage, or camo, has been a street style favorite for years now and is beloved by some of the best designers such as Valentino and Tory Burch. When paired with more ladylike pieces like, a classic Chanel brooch and must-have red handbag, the army original goes from grungy to glam. I was really excited to add this camo jacket to my closet, and even more excited about the great price hehe.

on the grid

Printed pants have been in my style arsenal for a while now, and I attribute their staying power to serval great qualities. They are perfect for work to weekend, and most things in-between. They are usually so comfortable and are an easy way to add interest to any look. With heels, with flats or with sneakers, printed pants are some of my absoutle favorites. Check out my picks below. Enjoy!

trench dress for summer

I am a big fan of the trench dress. Simple, chic and always polished, this modern-day classic works everywhere from the office to out for dinner. I found this super lightweight version last week at J.CREW, and totally jumped on it for the flattering fit, blue stripes and summer-friendly fabric. And it didn't hurt that it's an extra 40% off the already sale price {use code SUMMER}. 

At this time of year, I always encourage my clients, and myself hehe, to focus on seasonal updates that are lightweight, and will transition well into fall. At a certain point in the summer, we all just want to get through the heat and start focusing on our fall wardrobe, so updating your look with versatile pieces like this trench dress keep you feeling chic in the heat and into the fall.

the power of a good outfit

Photo snapped by Glamour Magazine during Fashion Week last September 
as my sister and I ran to make the Marissa Webb show. 

So true! I cannot tell you how many times I have dressed up on a bad day or a day that I had to do something that I was dreading, and my outfit totally changed my mood and put a pep in my step. Even though it's our tendency to dress down on a dreary day, if you do the opposite amazing things can happen. So dress up ladies, you will be pleasantly surprised at the results, trust me!
