Repeat Offender: White Skinnies and YellowBox

20140513_161542 (863x1024)
White Jeans Level 99 (sold out) similar here, Grey Tank C+C California (old)similar style on sale here, Black Blazer c/o Kohls (old)but surprisingly still available here, Necklace Sutton Stella and Dot available here, Sunglasses c/o Glasses.com available here, Shoes c/o YellowBox available here

Let me start off by saying, I bought two pairs of these distressed white jeans featured above.  I knew I would wear them a ton and I know how tricky (easily stained) white can be.  I reserve one pair for adult time and one pair for family activity.  So, before you judge for featuring them back to back (and wearing them nonstop) I wanted to share that minor detail:)

I know many clients and readers resist white denim…actually white anything.  Truth be told, it IS hard to keep whites white…and with small children, it is even harder.  I say use your smarts ladies….if you are heading to a backyard BBQ with freshly cut grass and ketchup as the main side, I would skip the white.  However, if you are heading out for a drink or to dinner with a friend, they are the perfect summertime look!

I also want to make mention of the fabulous wedges sent to me from YellowBox Shoes.  The brand is a new discovery for me….and you know when I love it, I share it!  These striped wedges are adorable and affordable.  A winning combination.  For some reason I like spending less on my summer shoe wardrobe and can definitely see myself investing in a few cute pairs from their site.  Infact, I just picked these up yesterday while out an about shopping for clients. Turns out, one of the boutiques I work with carries YellowBox shoes…even further confirmation they are a great brand!  Happy Shopping:)

Do you remember when I gave away this killer Camo Scarf compliments of Luxe Auctions?  Well, Luxe Auctions has now become online accessories boutique SusieRaine and you are going to swoon!  Susie has an incredible eye for beautiful baubles at affordable prices.  As a fellow Jersey gal…we were just itching to partner up again.  She let me choose an awesome scarf to sell exclusively to TSF readers.  I chose this amazing americana lightweight scarf featured below.  This will be a major repeat offender in the coming months, so if you are hesitating…DON’T…it is ONLY $19 and you can just copy all of my outfit ideas.  Ha!

Loving it all “glam” with leather leggings and killer loubs….but I can totally see it with distressed boyfriend jeans, sandals and a black tee.  Fail safe…”I look cool but like I didn’t try at all” outfit.  What do you all think?  Digging the look?  How would you style the scarf?  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and HAPPY SHOPPING!

Scarf Exclusive for TSF and available for purchase HERE!

Lightweight material, oversize, black/tan/red and $19!!!

Counting Down in Red Heels

Is it possible to be extremely grateful and extremely overwhelmed at the same time?  Well, yes it is….I am so thankful for all these amazing opportunity to be shopping for clients with less than FIVE days until Xmas…but I am so freaking overwhelmed to get it all done and still have everything wrapped and ready to go for my OWN loved ones.  My rational self knows I will get it all done….but my emotional self is all over the damn place.

I shot these down by the train tracks again with the lovely Amy of Adalie Scott Photography….these might be some of my favorite shots EVER on the blog!  I have been sporting these red heels like no other lately..don’t pretend like you didn’t notice.  I am not ashamed.  They are just the perfect compliment to all the classic black and white I wear.  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Wednesday:)

KOHLS: How To Style My Black Blazer

I like creating outfits that are stylish, comfortable and easy to recreate for all of you reading along.  I would venture to guess that most of you have jeans, white tanks and a blazer, so I thought it would be helpful to add on accessories for both day and night….giving you outfit ideas for the most simple items in your closet.  As you might remember from this post, Kohls gifted me a few great item style up this fall!  This LC Lauren Conrad Boyfriend Blazer will be getting a ton of wear in the coming months.  It is so easy to style and I love the fit!  Totally worth the $49.99 pricetag:)The rest is a mix of new and old accessories….see why I am always telling you accessories are KEY?  They help your basics drive the extra mile….Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Tuesday!

Saturday Night: Pajama Pant Trend

This past weekend I hit the road and visited some dear friends in Washington DC.  Although the trip was mostly pleasure, I did leave super early Saturday to clean out my best client and friends closet.  It was long overdue…she was holding on to items I sold her when I worked at Nicole Miller (over six years ago).  A few people commented on Instagram, how do get people to part with items….how do I know what to toss?  My main rule of thumb (aside from special occasion items)…if you haven’t worn it in 12 months, you aren’t going to.  Toss it!  I immediately grab items that are worse for wear and toss them.  We ended up with an entire trash bag to donate and two entire trashbags to take to a local consignment shop.  She can make some money back from the items that are just out of date to invest in new pieces for the season ahead. Now to what we were wearing……

Kohls was so kind to send me a gift card for some fashionable items to take mom “Back to School”.  I am sharing all my goodies in a few posts to show you how many outfits I can create with the amazing four pieces I chose.  Next week I am going to be sporting a much more casual vibe that I plan to wear to meet Connor’s teacher and our Pre-school registration…..but I love these Jennifer Lopez pajama pants and had to wear them out on the town Saturday night!  Hope you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Shopping!
