One of my favorite things about modern-day fashion, is that we can mix high, low and everything in-between. Gone are the days when you needed to wear the same cohesive, designer look from head to toe, and so far gone are the days that you can't wear Topshop with Balenciaga. Fashion is now all about mixing it up, and today's outfit is just that. 

I paired one of my highest-end bags, this Balenciaga Mini City, with my beloved vintage YSL dress that is somewhere in-between the highest fashion and a great deal. Topped off with my go-to summer shoes, these under $100 nude heels, and this look has a price point for everyone, and a strong point of view.

It's no secret that I have LOVED the WhoWhatWear for Target collection since it came out. And unlike other Target collaborations, WhoWhatWear didn't just release one round of attainable fashion magic, but keeps turning out hits like this black ruffle blouse. I just scooped up this flirty blouse and this white, peplum top, and I think I need to add this blush, pleated skirt to my closet. Shop the entire collection at an insane price, here

buy, store, hold {vol. 1}

Hi, friends! Today I'm so excited to share my newest project with you. It's entitled "buy, store, hold," and it's my take on the Wall Street analyst's "buy, sell, hold" recommendations that advise investors on what stocks to buy, get rid of and hold onto. 

My goal with this series is to help you shop better, fill your closet with pieces that you will love for a long time and always keep you looking fresh and up-to-date. Much like an investment analyst, I'm here to advise you on what to scoop up, lay off of and keep in your closet. Today I'm starting from the bottom up with every girls favorite, SHOES! I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think! 

buy// loafers 

Right now loafers are very on trend, and could not be more classic in the long run. Whether you like a pair with a more feminine flair, or the classic Gucci style that is borrowed from the boys, loafers are an easy, and comfortable way to update your look. Wear them with dresses, skirts, shorts and of course jeans and pants. 

store// unstructured ballet flats

While a classic, structured ballet flat like Chanel or Ferragamo is always in style, the unstructured ballet flat is looking a little tired these days. We have loved them for more than a decade now when they came back in a major way, and right now it's time to go for a more structured shoe. 

If you have a high-end pair that is in good condition, I would suggest storing them away for when they come back around. But if you have a more disposable pair that has seen better days, better to toss them out and focus on a more current look. 

hold// valentino rockstuds 

This nouveau classic has been such a fashion force since it burst onto the scene half a decade ago. When working with my clients that have Rockstuds in their style arsenal, it's hard to find something that they don't look good with. 

They add just the right amount of ladylike-edge to everything from distressed jeans to a pretty, floral dress. So with that, I suggest that you hold onto your Rockstuds for a while longer. They still seem fresh and incredibly versatile to me, even though they have been around for a while.

pink & red

Pink and red is a color combination most popular around Valentine's Day, and one of the most cheerful and feminine pairings in the rainbow. And, today I'm loving these colors as bookends to this colorful striped skirt

With a skirt this colorful, I would usually pair it with all neutrals like a nude heel, classic black bag and throw in a neutral pattern like I did here. But with so many colors mixed in, a pink shirt and red heels doesn't seem like too much. So next time you're building an outfit around a piece that has every color of the rainbow, consider pulling out a couple of colors to highlight.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed these black track pants making frequent appearances on the weekends and on more casual workdays. My uber stylish friend, Erin Lopez, introduced me to these comfy-little-wonders about a month ago, and I've loved them ever since. 

Paired with a bright red blazer, stripes and one of my favorite mini bags, this look is perfect for a casual day at the office or a day of travel. Stay tuned to see how I style these super chic and easy-to-wear track pants next. And, let's be honest, I may have to get them in navy as well!
