Graphic Tees

Everyone, everywhere on the planet can find something as basic as a graphic tee these days. They’re everywhere, in all colors, patterns and styles. Some have jewels, some have flowers, the point is, there’s one for everybody. Below are a few fun ways to incorporate something as simple as a graphic tee into your wardrobe without making it feel like you’re wearing a plain ol’ t-shirt and jeans!

Black and White GraphicTee

Have a little fun and go a little punk rock.

Multicolored Graphic Tee

Create an eye-catching ensemble with a splash of color.
(ok, ok, this is more like a tidal wave of color than a splash but you get what I mean)

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.

Pearls + Zippers + Camo

The other day I rolled out of bed and said “I need camouflage pants!” Paired with pearls and zippers, this lovely lady-like look blends hard and soft styles together, setting it apart from the rest.

Get Pretty In Punk

I decided to go a little bit punk rock / a little bit tom boy on you this week. Pair a look like this with heels and you take it from casual to sexy punk rocker in seconds.

There are tons of fun ways to tie, wrap and wear an ascot. I always find them slightly uncomfortable to wear around the neck so I wrap mine around my wrist!

You Style The Day-The Many Looks of Goff

Time for our next “You Style The Day“:
Sara Goff Roiko, lead singer of LA indie band The Elizabeth Kill, has got some truly rock ‘n’ roll style. When she takes the stage, she commands attention, not only with her voice, but also with her look. I love the combination of her gold tights and chic white blazer, accessories fit for a rock star and her steampunk vibe. Everyone’s got that inner rocker. Be sure to bring that persona out from time to time and rock your style like Sarah does. Thanks for sharing your look Sarah!

“Happiness is a Warm Gun”

Sarah Says: “I’m a tom boy, always have been. Caring about what I was wearing only came about when I started wanting to get people’s attention on stage.  Suddenly my old jeans weren’t the only item I was into showcasing; gold, spandex and silver scream louder than my denim sometimes. My spandex makes it a lot easier to stretch and move on stage. 

Amber has always been encouraging, not only by cheering me on through the years off stage, but now as our photographer for The Elizabeth Kill. She encourages me to continue to take chances in visual ways.  I love her eye for fashion and it inspires me to bring more of me to the table! Thanx girl! 

 My gun ring is my most favorite accessory right now, this is a piece of my onstage persona that I can bring with me anywere…welcome to the gun show.”

You might be asking yourself: “Self? How can I incorporate these rocker looks into my own wardrobe?”  There are tons of great ideas Sarah is using here. We all can’t wear gold spandex to the office but we could certainly all use a kick-ass white blazer like hers, or some unique accessories. Don’t afraid to be different! Stand out in the crowd! You’ll have much more fun that way.

Beautiful Brights

Neon Rose Pants

It’s true, the 80’s are back, and even though it’s enough to make me cringe, I’ve figured out a way to incorporate all those crazy colors into my own look, and I love it!

Blue nail polish

Like all the bold colors being rocked on the runways but aren’t sure you can pull off neon head to toe? Splash a bright hue across your nails…

Neon Pink Belt

… or add a fun colored belt to your outfit! It’s a great way to bring out your inner rocker!

I love the idea of mixing a casual item ( like these shorts )
with something a bit more dressy ( like the yellow tank ).

Happy Monday!

Black blazer with black lace shirt

What better way to kick off the work week than with a suit jacket. Pair a black blazer with some lace. It's a fun but simple way to kick it up a notch.
