Fashion Friday: Classic 60’s Icon Style

I finally bought some flare jeans (all the rage right now and a post-pregnancy indulgence) and and am loving their 60’s vibe, but prefer to style them in a clean, preppy way- not a super bohemian one. It inspires me to emulate the style of so many of my favorite fashion icons- Jackie, Audrey, Ali Macgraw and Francoise Hardy. Pair a good striped shirt and classic suede booties with them and you have a look you can rock forever.

Here’s a look I’ll wear any day!  When it comes to finding the right fit flares, I prefer to look for pairs that are fitted through the hip, butt and upper thigh and then get wider starting at the upper knee area.  When they are tight to the knee it’s not as flattering on the thighs (and reminds me of the 90’s and my Paris Blue jeans- yikes).  These below are the ones I bought and fit just the way I desire (and hilariously yesterday Lindsey looked over at me from her computer and said “I need to take  a picture of you right now” as I was buying this striped shirt while WEARING a striped shirt #ihaveaproblem)

Fashion Friday: Fancy Denim for Holiday

Hey, check me out- two posts in a row!!! Maybe I’m on my way back to my old ways! :) Anywhoo, this holiday there won’t be much fancy dress for me (and by much I mean NONE). Skirts and spit up don’t mix (especially with these under eye bags). But I still want to look a little festive when celebrating with my family so I pulled together some denim based looks that mix fancy and casual. I love this mix, and it works for so many festive occasions where a dress is just too much.

Fashion Friday: Holiday Dressing with Ann Taylor

**So I’m currently at the hospital in labor! But couldn’t leave you without a FF post. :) Updates to come!

When I was sent the newest holiday collection imagery from Ann Taylor I fell in love. I adore the casual cozy meets glamorous look they created. Granted, I may not be slipping into sequin trousers this Christmas (more like leggings), I WISH I could wear all these outfits!

Totally obsessed with this textural neutral mix- add statement earrings and you’re good to go for a seasonal cocktail party or dinner party.

Fashion Friday: Holiday High/Low Mix

I saw this picture on J.Crew Factory’s page and LOVED the feel of the casual plaid short with the skinny jean and sexy strappy heels. Nothing looks better than mixing casual and dressy- mostly because you looks festive but are pretty darn comfortable!

I pulled together a few options for this look to help you start planning for holiday drinks, date nights and girls gatherings!

Fashion Friday: Inspired Fall Dressing

Untitled-2

I love all the cozy, natural tones fall brings in New England. And I love fall clothes! So why not combine the two?  Here are two outfits based on two fall staples- a great faux fur vest (saw this one in person and it’s GOOD) and a statement necklace made with natural materials like leather and wood (I bought it this week and love it).
