Parisian Style at Home & On You!

Over the weekend I picked up a copy of How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are and dove right in, as it’s well known that anything Parisian-inspired bring me to my knees muttering “show me the way!”  This book is very tongue in cheek, some of it making me wonder if these ladies were being sarcastic or brutally honest, but I loved the take-away’s regarding style, attitude and beauty.

These are the four women who penned the book- and just by looking at them I would sign up for any style lessons they have to offer.

Fashion Friday: New Years Eve Style

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday- kind of hard to believe it’s all over, right? Well, it’s not ALL over- New Years Eve is still ahead of us! Not everyone plans to go out to formal affairs, so I partnered with Nordstrom to plan out outfits for a variety of New Years Eve plans- from fancy to sitting on the couch at home! No matter what your doing, you can find some outfit inspiration here:

For a black tie affair I am loving the black and gold long dress paired with big earrings, a faux fur cropped coat and a seriously blinged out clutch.


Going out to a fun and fancy party with friends? This sequin shift pairs with an edgy leather jacket will do the trick.

Fashion Friday: Holiday Event Dressing

There are SO many types of holiday events in the coming weeks and so I wanted to throw together some outfit options for different kinds of parties you might be attending!  From an urban dressy-casual look (my personal favorite- that blazer!) to more formal parties and everything in between!

Fashion Friday: The Sweater I Won’t Take Off

Last weekend I was at Anthropologie with my sister-in-law and picked up this patterned sweater “coat”.  As I do often when in Anthro, I asked her if it was totally awesome or some kind of weird daytime bathrobe.  After trying it on I decided it was the former.  And since then I’ve worn it three times (yes, in one week- gross).  It’s just SO warm, so comfy and totally stylish.  Not to mention EASY. Add skinny jeans or leggings, boots (or heeled booties like these for a little dressier effect) and a tank underneath and you are ready to head out the door feeling so comfortable but looking together!  I adore pieces like this!
