color crush

Untitled #37

Dress $40 | Heels $60 | Purse $175 | Hat $18 | Earrings $22 | Polish $8

Maybe it's the upcoming "holiday" that's got me in a red trance, or maybe it's my wardrobe begging for some color. I've had a real crush on candy red the past few weeks. I think my first investment will be a pair of sky high heels to feed my obsession. If you wanted to try it out on a lower scale, a pair of statement earrings, or red nail (this color is THE best) would be thy way. Or if you are like me, a fashion dare devil of sorts, why not pair it all together? It would be the perfect Valentine's Day date night look!

off duty

Tee - LOFT ($7 on clearance)
Sweater - Lou & Grey via LOFT ($40 with promotion)
Jeans - Old Navy ($15 last year)
Sneakers - Nike via J. CREW ($80)
Purse - TJMaxx ($30)
Sunnies - Foster Grant (c/o)
Necklace - TJMaxx ($25)

When I'm not in heels, I'm in flats, and when I'm not in flats, I'm in sneakers. These Nike Sneakers to be exact. A pair of classic, vintage style, black and white (my fave color) Nike's are the perfect sneaker in my book. Comfy, casual, and cool. And if you didn't know the the sneaker is (obviously) totally back in, and it's a great excuse to give your feet a break from those sky high pumps, and unsupportive flats. Take a look below for more inspiration...

All of these looks provide the chic factor while being overly comfy. Is that cheating? Nah!

try something new

2015 hair

I know this might be hard to hear but (in my opinion) gone are the days of the "top knot".  Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE wears their hair in a top knot these days, and we don't like to be like everyone else. Right?! All of these hairstyles still provide the ease of pulling your hair on top of your head, but with a fresh new look. I know most of these pictures show ladies with longer hair, but those with short hair can just as easily pull them off. I think the key factor in all these hairstyles is the messy, un-done feel. Which is perfect for when you're in a hurry right? It doesn't have to be perfect! Perfect hair is boring. Even with that messy feel they all look chic and put-together. I challenge you to try a few of these hairstyles this week. If you don't like, guess what?... it's hair! Take it down and try something else! Now go have some fun with your hair!
