Are you ready for Spring? Get these two spring pieces to jumpstart the season.

Spring is almost here, and I am so excited that skin-baring tops and dramatic sleeves are still all the rage.  When these styles emerged, it didn’t take long for me to jump on the bandwagon.  I am obsessed with these styles and love how effortless and extremely chic they look on every body type. Shoulder-baring […]

A beautiful mind

      Radiating beauty starts from within, meaning it’s time to take a look at your thoughts. What is a beautiful thought? It is one that allows you to live out and embrace your authentic self. A beautiful thought doesn’t paint a false picture of perfection; instead, it is filled with truth and grace. […]

What makes you beautiful!

      “You are beautiful!” This has been one of the best compliments I’ve received lately. There is something about that word that will instantly brighten your day — especially when the word is about more than your physical appearance.

Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer To Fall

Fall is my favorite season! A season full of sweaters and pumpkins and bonfires! But it’s also a great season for fashion! Right now we’re right on the cusp of moving from summer to fall fashion.

Road Trip!

I have to admit when my husband mentioned a road trip, my eyes involuntarily rolled. The excitement on his face was so childlike. I quietly wondered if a 9+ hour road trip would lead to marriage counseling. You see the mere thought of a road trip brought back horrible memories of a previous road trip […]

Ever see someone and they just have “that look?”  You know a touch of boldness combined with a classic elegant style.  Leopard print is a foolproof wardrobe staple that adds that extra something to an outfit. Of course I lust over the very expensive “haute couture leopard coats” that are often featured in magazines,  but […]

Alter Ego

I have been obsessed with fashion for as long as I can remember. My grandmother tells this story (every holiday…apparently I was the only child who did embarrassing things) of me accompanying her to a department store.  While she was busy talking with a sales associate I wandered down to the shoe aside and tried […]
