WINTER WHITE

Does anyone still abide by the “no white after Labor Day” rule? I don’t, but I do believe in wearing what you like and whatever fits your personal style, not what others say you should or shouldn’t wear, what’s currently in or out, etc. I have always lived in the southern part of the country where winters are typically pretty mild, so it’s certainly easier to get away with wearing white year round. But bottom line, if you like it, wear it…and I like winter white! read more

You know those weeks where you’re just feeling kind of blah? That’s this week for me. But this leopard cardigan helped to put a little pep in my step. I typically stick to leopard print accessories, like my go to Clare V clutch, but this cardigan caught my eye. I love the oversized print and think it’s edgy and chic at the same time. The sleeves have a little bit of volume and the fit is slightly oversized, which I’m always a fan of. It’s kind of like a grandpa sweater but in the best way possible. read more

SPLURGE OR SAVE: LOAFER MULES

splurge or save: loafer mules

LOAFERS

These Gucci loafers were hands down my best purchase of 2017. I wanted them for a while, but since they are most definitely a splurge, I needed to make sure they weren’t a one season trend that would leave me regretting such a hefty purchase. After watching and patiently waiting for over a year (or maybe impatiently as it seemed they were everywhere), I was confident in my decision to buy them this past fall. read more

MINI MONDAY NO. 4: FAUX FUR COAT

It’s hard out here for a pimp. Inappropriate way to start a post featuring your not even two year old? Maybe. But seriously, this faux fur coat is a mixture of mob wives/rapper/teddy bear all wrapped in to one adorable package. I wasn’t really going for the oversized look, but since this coat was a Christmas gift splurge (grandparents give the toys, I give the fur) I wanted to size up to ensure Olivia will be able to get lots of use, and our money’s worth, out of it. She’s wearing a size 3T, so I am pretty confident this coat will be sticking around for at least the next 2 winters.  read more
