Styling Black and Navy

 

Yesterday, I shared on my Instagram that every woman should own a pair of leather leggings.  I just think they are so versatile and add instant cool factor to a simple outfit.   I believe the same can be said for a 50’s styled black skirt.  I love the versatility.  I have owned the one above for years and never tire of wearing it (like here and here).  No matter what I pair with it, I always feel like a class act.

In other news…..

Can you believe I even second guessed these amazing HOT pink heels?  I was thinking I didn’t need them and now I am refraining from wearing them every time I dress up.  Total beauties.  If you aren’t familiar with SJP’s shoe line, it is worth a looksy HERE.  They are expensive but they are comfortable, beautifully made and if I can be any closer to SJP fashion wise….well….. #enoughsaid

And mention…..

I personally love pairing navy and black together.  It is an unexpected but dynamic combination like here and here.  My style tip would be making sure to keep everything else on the simple side.  The different textures were enough for me, so I skipped a necklace, letting the striped top take center stage.   I added a POP of color with my shoes and called it a day:) #simplestyle

Hope you find some outfit inspiration and HAPPY THURSDAY!

Styling Bright Shoes

When my husband gifted me NEON orange pumps over a year ago , I wasn’t sure I would wear them. I almost returned them. #truestory My initial thought was, I had nothing to pair them with.  Then, after some dress-up time in my closet, I realized they were the PERFECT item to breathe life back into my seemingly stale winter wardrobe.

I first styled them here with a black sweater and leather leggings I had owned for years.  Suddenly, with very little effort, those tired items were inspired.  I remember the feeling vividly…..an outfit that required so little thought and yet looked so uber chic. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, no? High on this easy fashion recipe, I invested in red pumps and showed them off for the first time here.  Just a few days ago for Christmas 2016, my husband gifted me these….which have already been worn twice and will be featured in a dedicated outfit post later this week:)I hope  you find some outfit inspiration and Happy Shopping!

Bestsellers from Instagram

I dedicate a lot of time and conscious thought to what ends up on my SHOP page on my website.  That said, I know that many of my fashion friends who follow along on Facebook and Instagram never end up on my website….and probably vice versa!  So, I am rounding up my BESTSELLERS from Instagram in December.

Also, is a monthly roundup of bestsellers something you might want to see moving forward in the new year?  Leave a comment below!  HAPPY SHOPPING!

 

Build Me Up Slit Skirt available for purchase HERE.  I posted this outfit to Instagram HERE over the holidays to an overwhelming response.  I think it is my most “liked” post on that form of social media.  With six skirts sold that evening, who knew you all liked hot pink as much as I do?!  The skirt IS FINAL SALE so buyer beware but the price-tag is amazing!  I am wearing the size medium above and am typically a 4/6 in skirts.  Happy Shopping:)

 

I didn’t realize how much wear I would get out of a black pleated midi skirt until I purchased this one above from Nicole Miller HERE.  Although I am finding the investment to be totally worth it, I realize not everyone wants/can splurge like that….so I found an identical skirt HERE for a fraction of the price.  The original Instagram post is HERE! The skirt was the bestselling item from the post with close to 10 skirts sold (a mix of the splurge and save)!  I am wearing a size 6 in the skirt.  Sadly the fringe top is sold out but the necklace is available HERE.  Happy Shopping:)

 

I recently partnered with Timex for a dedicated blogpost HERE.  Although I primarily wear my Rolex, I loved the simple design of this watch and I loved the leather strap. It has an everyday casual feel but is still special enough to catch your eye.  You all seemed to love the price-tag of this stylish watch when it was originally posted to Instagram HERE. Over five were sold that day!  Get the watch HERE.  Happy Shopping:)

 

I have said it before, and I will say it again…THESE BOOTS are my favorite OTK boots of all time.  They are classy, sexy, stylish and most important comfortable!  Fortunately, many of you agree with over 8 pairs sold last week from my post HERE! Even more fortunate is that they are on SALE over half off!  Happy Shopping:)

 

I can’t mention bestsellers and NOT make mention of my t-shirt line, #thirtysomethingtees!  You all are still supporting my tee in a major way….with 49 shirts sold in December.  I am so thankful you all love this tee as much as I do!  Even though its in the 20’s here in New Jersey, I am layering my tees under sweaters and cardigans because truthfully they are the softest pieces of clothing I own.  Originally posted HERE you can learn about total donations to K.Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. Available in WHITE, GREY and BLACK.  Happy Shopping:)
