Asneh Florence Sleeveless Sweater

December 09, 2016

For this styling of my Asneh sweater I opted for casual.  When I shared with you here as the perfect cashmere vest I knew I needed to share a casual look so you can see just how versatile this vest is.  What better way to dress down than in chambray and denim.  Of course with a floppy hat too!  When I think of layering with a sweater, I think bulky.  I love the vest because it eliminates the bulk but keeps the warmth.  I wish it was a little longer for me personally,  but it is so soft and perfect with your shirt tails hanging out to make up for the length.  

I have really been working hard to shop my entire closet this season with very little new additions.  I am struggling to not buy any new sweaters this season.... but reworking what I already own has pushed my creativity in my wardrobe!  When was the last time you shopped your closet to create a new outfit?

Mixing Patterns with Leopard

December 07, 2016
It has been a while since I shared a pattern mixing post.  Today I mixed some of my favorites.  Leopard (of course), gingham and army green.  It was such an easy outfit to pull together. 

Throwing patterns together comes pretty easy for me.  I hear all the time from my friends and followers; "I just don't know how to put it together".  I did an full post dedicated to just this and you can read my entire pattern mixing post here.  I really enjoy when someone shares with me how they stepped out of their comfort zone, even just a little with their outfit.  What are some of your favorite patterns to mix?  I love gingham and leopard together, and I love florals and stripes!  To me, fall is the best time to mix patterns.  You have the option for so many different types of layers, it makes it easy to pull a super fun outfit together.

Pretty Pink Bow

December 05, 2016
Happy Monday.  How was everyone's weekend?  I did a little decorating and shopping and feel a little better about Christmas being here in only 3 weeks.  It's dress down day with this otherwise dressy sweater.  I first shared this gorgeous sweater you can read the full post here as the perfect bow.  I wanted to share just how easy it is to dress up and dress down.  I love the pink silk bow.  I threw it on with a pair of distressed jeans, my favorite of course, added a mid heel with a pop of leopard (of course) and I am weekend ready!  If the heel is more than you would want throw on a bootie, or even better a pair of riding boots.  I own these Frye boots (on sale right now) and absolutely love them.

How would you style this sweater?

Black on Black

December 02, 2016

Happy Friday and more importantly... Happy December!  Can you believe we are in the last month of 2016?  This year just flew by.  I have been so busy working on a secret project that I will be sharing with you after the first of the year!  It's exciting so be on the look out for it!  Most of us all have at one time or another relied on an all black outfit.  Let's admit it, it's easy, everything goes with black, and it's slimming.  Am I right?  I wanted to take an all black outfit but add a touch of pattern to elevate my look.  I still love the qualities mentioned above with the all black, but I feel less drab with a pattern play in place!  This blouse is a drape front and hits a bit shorter than I like so I layered it with a solid black tank.  The plaid sweater vest is super versatile and will go with so much.  These leggings have a mottled leather look to them and that definitely dresses them up!

Style tip:  When pairing patterns be sure to mix a large scale and a small scale to balance the look. Adding a heel elongates your look and gives you a slimmer and streamline appearance.
