Maternity Outfits: Cardigan For Day & Night

January 15, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Well it’s now been 10 days since I’ve been on bed rest for contractions (you can read all about it here and here).  Gone (for now) are the days of getting dressed and taking outfits pictures. Not that I’m complaining it just feels like time is literally frozen and although I’m beyond grateful that I’m even able to sit at home and rest it does seem unreal that I can’t even go to Target or cook my kids a meal (actually that’s one the very few bonuses of bed rest – I hate cooking).  With that said I had a few outfit posts scheduled for this month and because of the bed rest I decided instead to feature the item I was going to initially wear and some outfits that I would be wearing if I wasn’t on bed rest.  :)

For this post the focus is on the cozy crotchet cardigan from Pink Blush.  I paired it with a simple tee and booties for day and for night I paired it with a sexy pencil skirt and a plum colored top.  Each and every item in both outfits can easily be combined to form an entirely different outfit or worn with just about anything in your closet.  Great maternity pieces that can be worn post baby as well.  Check out the looks below.

Target Style Series: How To Style A Pencil Skirt

September 21, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Pencil skirts have this classic-yet-sexy Audrey Hepburn vibe that never goes out of style – and if not already, should be a staple in your closet.  They’re easily worn from day to night and with affordable picks like the ones by Merona from Target the options are endless!! Contrary to popular belief, the pencil skirt is actually universally flattering with a cut that looks long and lean on any  shape (with the right pieces).  I’m curvy in the middle, so I need my tops to fall right at the hips.  Check out my selections below!

Pullover Sweater – $19.99 | Denim Shirt – $19.99 | Pencil Skirt – $20 | Clutch – $17.99

On the weekends, pair a bright colored pencil skirt (like the orange one below) with a denim jacket, a pullover sweater (which is perfect for layering and mixing in with other fall basic like chinos and cords) and flats for a casual chic look.

Blouse – $18 | Pencil Skirt – $20  | Skinny Belt  – $12.99 | Loafers – $32.99 | Tote – $32.99

For a trendy office look, the animal print skirt, a pretty orange blouse for a pop of color, a belt to accentuate your waist and wrap up your look with classic loafers.

Denim Jacket – $24.99 | Pencil Skirt – $20  | Shell Sweater – $19.99 | Heels – $23.99 | Necklace – $12.99 | Clutch – $24.99

For night, try pairing some basics with a pair of sexy animal print heels and a bold necklace .

Celebrity Redo: Jessica Alba

I usually love Jessica’s outfits, but this one just doesn’t do anything for  her.  The gray skirt paired with that purplish cardigan just makes her look washed out (particularly against her blonde hair, which is a tad too light in my opinion).  So, I swapped out the gray skirt for a vintage-looking tapestry pocket skirt and picked a cardigan with a darker shade.  What do you think of Jessica’s outfit (or hair for that matter)?

Celebrity Redo: Kate Bosworth

June 3, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

 Here’s the deal: It’s not that I don’t like Kate Bosworth’s look (it is kinda Bohemian cool), it’s just that the colors don’t do anything for her and it definitely would not be my first choice for Summer wear.  I can see someone wearing booties with a Summer dress, but Kate’s wearing a tee, vest, scarf and booties.  For the redo, I decided to swap out the gray tee for a white tank and instead of the booties I added a pair of woven platforms.  The pieces I chose will allow you to easily mix and match them with other  Summer essentials (like the tank with shorts or the vest with dresses).

Celebrity Copycat Deluxe: Rachel Bilson

Filed under Celebrity Copycat

Rachel Bilson’s outfit just exudes fun!  Better yet, each piece can be utilized in completely different styles and looks. The cardigan can be worn with slacks, skirts or even shorts for a more casual preppy look.  For a more sassy vibe, pair the gray boots with a pencil skirt.  And what better way to add a pop of color to an outfit than a green bag!  I’m really big on making the most of every piece in my closet, and this look is sooo interchangeable I had to include it.  Get Bilson’s quirky look for less.
