My Favorites this week were easy picks! Paris and SJP, great combination. Dreamy Chanel handbag and necklaces, pinch me. Three very cute street style looks also caught my eye. Finally, a peek inside the new Nasty Gal store which looks amazing! Not much to say this week as my choices pretty much speak for themselves. One thing that came to mind when preparing this post is that there is so much in the way of great fashion out there you really have to find your niche and go with it, whatever your style is. Have a great weekend!
Soon I am off to a cooler climate (who am I kidding, it is going to be absolutely f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g) so I have been picking up a few pieces online to add to my basically non-existent winter wardrobe! Pinterest provides me with a lot of inspiration when it comes to fashion (check out my archives for all my Friday Favorites) so I have been pinning the heck out of layered looks, great coats, scarves, cute hats and of course boots. These are my favorite looks although I could have done a “Friday’s Thousand Favorite Pins” this week with so many to choose from! Have you posted a layered look lately? Leave me a link to your post for even more inspiration. Thanks so much for your comments, have a great weekend!
So the idea for this post was to focus on my “vintage” Coach handbag but things got a little goofy in the garden on this particular day. Maybe too much sun, maybe the frustration of snapping photo after photo and chasing the neighbours dogs away got the best of me, but I just could not take myself seriously. Hard as I try it is going to take more practice to get the photos right (friends tell me I am sometimes “over-exposed” in my photos oops!). For this post I wore a simple Zara sweater, my favorite skinny jeans and my go-to Topshop booties as the backdrop to my bag. This hobo style bag with a retro Coach signature print vibe to it is one of my absolute favorites. Print or plain bag, which is your preference? Thanks so much for your comments!
I can’t believe how fast the months are flying by! My blog, the next plan to fly off island and looking forward to different scheduled events, all cause a total living in time increment lifestyle. Time to slow things down and relish the upcoming holiday season. November brings with it some fun events on island and I look forward to sharing a slice of this with you via my Instagram. Here I share a few of my favorites from October and look forward to a chockablock November/December! Thank you for your comments and be sure to leave your Instagram link!
For me, and I know this sounds crazy cliché, lately less has been more. I like simple pieces, fewer accessories and spending less time on trying to figure out my wardrobe. This look definitely encompasses all of that. Dress. Heels. Bag. Living in a warmer climate I can get away with this almost on a daily basis as layering fashion here is not a necessity. In a cooler climate I would pair this dress with a cute cardigan, tights and boots. It was knee-length when I purchased it, but after watching several episodes of Project Runway I became inspired and felt fairly confident that I could modify it into a length I would love. Do you sometimes adopt a less is more attitude when it comes to fashion? Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Have a wonderful week!
The other evening I was window shopping at Chanel, peeking through the glass admiring the “Boy Bag”. It’s lovely shape, gorgeous leather, glistening gold shoulder chain and iconic symbol all taunting me. It was at that exact moment I decided to take the plunge and purchase the bag I have been coveting for months. I entered the shop, approached a charming salesclerk and just as I was at the counter preparing to make my purchase…..I woke up. A total dream, but one I need to part ways with. Will I ever own my dream handbag? One never knows. I see it featured on several of my favorite reads and it has been a “covet worthy” item time and time again. The Chanel will always hold a special place in my heart.
Now, officially on the rebound from my “relationship” with the Boy Bag I discovered the new love of my life, the Ranger. This I told myself is definitely The One! Given its lush red leather and similar style to the Chanel, I was able to put my past love behind me and move on. With so many gorgeous designer handbags out there, which bag is your absolute dream handbag? Thank you so much for your comments!
Cynthia Rowley skirt (similar here and here, Jacob top, Banana Republic bag (Similar here in different color), Zara heels
When I purchased this top, my first thought was to pair it with a brown skirt or pants as I tend to gravitate towards a matched look when it comes to wearing brown. Brown and black were opponents in my closet though I am not sure why, as brown can be just as versatile as black when combined with other colors. In deciding to give this pairing a go, my Cynthia Rowley skirt and Jacob top were the perfect start. What is your favorite color to wear with brown? Thank you for your comments!
Hello Friday! It seems like only yesterday I was posting my weekly favorites from Pinterest, and here I am again. Friday also means the weekend has arrived and I can look forward to enjoying some downtime and plan to do something, or nothing at all over Saturday and Sunday. This weekend I know that baking is a definite after discovering this recipe on one of my favorite reads. It looks super yummy so hopefully I can replicate that yumminess! Depending on the weather getting to the beach or enjoying coffee outside at my favorite cafe may also be in the cards. Oh the possibilities the weekend brings. Oops totally went off topic here, back to Pinterest! This week my favorites captured my interest for a variety of reasons. Those gorgeous black boots and cute handbag, perfect. Really great neutral flats that look super comfy. Boyfriend jeans with heels and a black tee, simple look to style. The sweetest dress, clutch and statement necklace all with a boho vibe, beautiful. Relaxed style in loose-fitting top, culottes, shoulder bag and flats, would be nice for work. An easy hairstyle, yes please, and finally 5 ways to look more stylish, simple fashion advice. Hope you find a little inspiration as well in my choices this week. Thank you for reading and for taking the time to comment, I truly appreciate it. Have a great weekend!
I know that Fridays are normally reserved for denim in the workplace, but I could not resist pairing this Old Navy soft blue chambray shirt with a simple black work skirt. Less casual buttoned up I paired my shirt with a belt, heels and my new Favorite bag. What do you think of this alternative to business wear look? Thank you so much for your comments!
