It’s All About Hats

Whether you’re wearing them to keep your noggin warm or just for plain old fun, hats can take fashion to another level.

Winter Hat

Baby It’s Cold Outside…
Not only do I LOVE this hat that my aunt Carrie made, but I love my mom in it!
Such a fun design and color!

Sparkly Baret

Berets always have a way of giving off that smart, artsy vibe.
This sparkly one is a fun, new twist on an old classic.


Sexy and sophisticated. You can never go wrong with the fedora.
Try one with some detail or add your own touch like your favorite pin or a pretty ribbon!

A New Year. A New You.

It’s a new year, which means a new you! Fashion isn’t about looking a certain way, it’s about feeling a certain way. This year, bring out that inner fashionista, the dare-devil or the flower child that makes you feel good. Try something new. Be someone different. You may be surprised by the confidence it brings out!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Gibbons Pandit ( blogger at Tech In Real Life ). Not only did we push the envelope with her style, but we came up with some pretty fun and slightly different ways to pair items you might have hanging around in your closet. Although I’m pretty sure most of you don’t own a pair of these killer British flag tights, how fun are they?! We paired these up with some cute black shorts and other accessories. The final results are rockin.

Soft and Sweet

I love the “J. Crew” look of a belt over a sweater but I just can’t ever seem to pull it off… until now! I love the combination of these colors together and the belt helps to pull the look together.

Denim From Head to Toe

As I was flipping through the pages of a magazine, I came across a photo of Kate  Moss decked out in denim from head to toe. I thought I’d give it a whirl and this is what I came up with. The key is to keep one of your blues darker than the other as to not look like you went into denim overload. Break up the blue with a fun piece of jewelry or a different colored belt.

You Style The Day – Bubble Gum Babe

Move along little black dress … step aside khakis … this post is reserved for COLOR ONLY!  I gotta admit, I am a little color crazy lately and apparently Trish is too! This is neon-tastic. I LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing!

Trish, pretty in pink

Trish Says: This outfit is just so FUN . . . I love the bright pink skirt with the pastel colours of the tee. The belt? It was a ribbon wrapped around a gift from my husband. It was too pretty to throw away, so now it’s a belt!!
