Camo Pants

Happy Monday loves! I think my “anthem” for this year might just be Big Sean’s song Bounce Back. I haven’t been consistent in my some areas of my life including posting on this blog and I plan to change that. ( I feel like with these camo pants, and my anthem, I can do just about anything.) I won’t beat up on myself but I will challenge myself to be better. Because, “if you’re a real winner, you know how to Bounce Back.”

Now I don’t know about y’all but 2017 has started off doing a little TOO MUCH! So I’m willing to count January and some of February as a “warm up”, if you are. I mean if you won’t tell, I sure won’t! 😉 Here’s the thing, Lexington, KY weather is a bi-polar joke, when it’s not raining, it’s snowing, or we have a wind advisory so this weekend, Hubby and I took full advantage of some beautiful weather and got busy shooting pics.

In today’s look, I’ve styled some fun camo pants with a gray turtleneck with pops of camel to complete the look. A friend at our church complimented me on my look and asked about where I got my pants and as I answered, I realized they were over 4 years old from Gap and I think it’s just so funny how trends come back around full circle. I always advise my girlfriends and readers to buy quality pieces that can be worn for an extended period of time in a variety of ways.

Leather Mini Skirt + A Bow Tie

Happy Tuesday loves! It feels so good to be blogging again consistently and sharing content with you in this creative space of mine. In today’s look, on one of the milder days we’ve had lately in KY, I styled one of my favorite pieces together: my leather mini skirt and bow tie. There’s something beautiful about mixing masculine and feminine pieces. Most of you who have been faithful readers of my blog over the years, know that black isn’t my usual go to color of choice in outfits. But even I can admit how crisp and classic it looks with white and gray. Not one to shy away from my personal style, I decided at the last minute to wear my plum leggings instead of black and I love how it pulled the entire look together.

Duster Cardigan + Skinny Jeans

Happy New Year loves! I hope all of you had a Merry Christmas, and spent time relaxing and recharging for the New Year. I know I did. It felt so good to sleep in and spend a few days in my jammies with my  Husband after celebrating Christmas with our family. I’m more excited than ever to be sharing new content here for you and on my social media, and I’m even more excited and expectant for new opportunities to come!

Duster Cardigan + Skinny Jeans

I’ve been loving the duster sweater trend, it’s so cozy and I simply love a piece I can rework for work and play. Per usual, I believe in the magic of quality re-wearable pieces and this is just that. I added a dark purple chunky infinity scarf to add a fun pop of color to my Canadian tuxedo look and camel ankle boots, to finish it off.

Vintage Orange Blazer, Blanket Scarf

Happy Tuesday loves! How were your weekends? I hope all of you are just as excited for Christmas as my family and I are! Before I jump into today’s look featuring this vintage orange blazer and blanket scarf, I must stop and thank ALL of you for such sweet and warm responses on my last post! To be honest, I was a bit nervous about starting to blogging again, but your encouragement and excitement really energized me and I’m just so happy to be back!

In today’s look,  I’m wearing my trusted combo of a blazer, skinny jeans, and a blanket scarf. At this point, chambray is a neutral in my wardrobe and it was the perfect shade to balance the orange blazer, dark skinny jeans, and colorful blanket scarf without taking away from the look. I miss being able to wear outfits like this on out the door, because your girl was wrapped like Ralphie from A Christmas Story this morning.

Vintage Blazer, Faux Fur Stole

Hi my loves…it’s been a bit quiet over here in the past two months, right? I feel a bit guilty for not posting nearly as much as I used to, but life has been getting in the way. I struggled a bit with the whole work-life balance thing and so much has changed in both aspects. It’s never been easy to juggle and even harder with a brand new job and some recent life changes. I’m still in Higher Education but I’m in a position in student affairs that I’ve prayed for. And when God blessed me with it, I felt I had to spend some time diving in and learning the position. I no longer work crazy hours or travel weekly for work and I cannot be more thankful to be home with my husband and dog every day! That may not seem like much to some, but when you’re away for 10 weeks out of the year, it becomes even more valuable.

Anywho, enough of my rambling! I can honestly say I have a real handle on things now and they say you make time to do what you want, so I’m BACK! Did you all miss me? I missed you! I missed sharing style and music posts, and chatting with you all in the comments and on social media. The blogging community is such an inspiring and fun group to be part of and I’m happy to be back with new ideas, new content, a new posting schedule, which I’ll share with you later on this week and so much MORE!  Thank you all for being so patient with me these past few weeks and a special thank you to those who emailed me or messaged to check on me and let me know they missed reading my posts. <3

Vintage Blazer, Faux Fur Stole

Now let’s get into this look: I always love a vintage blazer in the Fall/Winter. It’s the perfect structural piece to make an alright outfit, FABULOUS! The neutral colors on this vintage blazer goes complements everything! You know I couldn’t just wear a blazer and crisp button up, I had to also add a statement necklace and faux fur stole, because why not? I have a pretty impressive collection of vintage blazers and I’m challenging myself to wear them in new and creative ways this Winter For an outfit this easy, why not add a little extra? It’s like ordering a hot chocolate and saying no to the whip cream, who does that?!

Now let’s get into this jewelry! My friends from Color by Amber were kind enough to send me a few pieces from their line because they know I’m a jewelry lover. But this isn’t just any jewelry line! is NOT just jewelry… It is a way to give back, do good, and literally change the world. The “ecoresin” that their jewelry is made out of is crafted out of 40% recycled material – making it a sustainable source of style!

Their interlayers come from all over the world. Some are just beautiful, high-end fabrics, and others are recycled materials – like old blue jeans or up cycled coffee bags. But my favorites are always from our “Full Circle” collection…
Full Circle is their platform for helping women Artisans around the world. They work with Artisans who live in remote villages in places like Ndem, Nepal, and Mexico. They use sustainable resources and ancient techniques to hand-craft interlayers such as monastery fray paper from Nepal, serape weaves from Mexico, and organically grown cotton in Ndem.
You can learn more about them here!
