Hi, there! Today I bring you part two of two posts dedicated to my love of track pants. With this look I'm right in the middle of casual and dressy pairing my sequin t-shirt and leopard heels with a field jacket and day bag. That's one of the best things about a track pant in a polished fabric...you can dress them up and down with ease. This look is perfect for a casual night out or after work function...love it!

It's no secret that I love, and may be addicted to, track pants. For work, for weekend, for date night and for travel, track pants are one of my go-to's that I love to dress up and down. So, today I bring you installment one of two dedicated to my favorite trouser du jour.  Worn with a men's shirt, and glammed up with gold accessories, a fur collar, and a classic trench coat, track pants go from comfy staple to polished pants in no time. Stay tuned later this week to see how I style these track stars another way. I hope you're having a wonderful week!

new year, new faves

The new year brings lots of chances to change things up, and my closet is usually the first place that I'm ready to transform. Whether it's getting rid of the pieces I've been holding onto for too long, investing in new basics or shaking up my sartorial self, I'm currently itching to find some new faves and make some changes.

This year I started my style evolution in the accessory department with some blonde, tortoise sunglasses and a new Clare V. clutch. Since I am such a sunglasses person, and LOVE pretty much everything Ms. Vivier turns out, I thought there was no better place to start my 2015 style journey than with these pieces. Worn with this oh-so-comfy vintage maxi and heels, I was ready to greet the new year in style.

pop







sunglasses// Warby Parker 
earrings// vintage, found @Cheeky Vintage {similar here}
stripes// J.CREW 
coat// vintage, found @Cheeky Vintage {similar here & here}
bag// J.CREW {LOVE this one}
pants// J.CREW 
sneakers// Converse 

Today I'm taking five modern-day classics that add a pop of style perfection to any look on their own, but when put together are all the more interesting. A pair of oversized sunnies, a red lip, my all time favorite...the striped shirt, a coat of the feline variety and a bright bag. These pieces are usually the showstoppers that top off and add interest to a more simple look, but when thrown all together somehow don't compete and don't look too loud. Maybe the sum of their bold parts is somehow less bold than the pieces by themselves? Maybe their individual pop-potential is neutralized when they are all put together? Or maybe it's the casual Converse that bring everything back down to earth. But whatever makes this look work, I'm now a fan of piling on the pop and making my look all the more interesting and fun!

the extras


Happy 2015! I hope you have had an amazing start to the year. 

I'm starting off this bright new year with a little post dedicated to the extras. All of those gorgeous little accessories that add that extra touch that make an outfit our very own. Those vests you can throw over practically anything, a quirky heel, a hat that can cover up any bad hair day, and one of my personal faves, the silk scarf. Not to mention, a clutch that can punch up any look, and a gorgeous jade ring that will go with a lot more than you think...love those kinds of pieces! 

And speaking the new year, I want to take a moment to thank you for following along, reading, commenting, clicking, sharing and being a part of my fashion family. This blog is such a therapeutic and fun outlet for me and I have been amazed at its growth over the past year. I cannot tell you how much your support  and enthusiasm mean to me, and this blog wouldn't be what it is today without your love and support. So, thank you for an incredible year of fashion fun and cheers to an even more amazing 2015!
