Sweater Weather

Mossimo Target

This Mossimo v-neck sweater from Target should be on your fall shopping list!  I recently wore the heather gray sweater with a pair of winter white dress pants and got a million complements.  Everyone wanted to know where I got my sweater.  Believe me they were surprised to find out, STYLE STEAL: $22 at Target.  The material is uber soft.  It also has a bit of a sheen so it looks dressier than a regular old sweater.

The black one is next on my list.  The black sweater with a pair of leather leggings and cobalt blue pumps!!  I can just imagine it now.

Bright, Bright Sunshiny Day

The weather is heating up and so are the colors this summer.  My closet is mostly white, beige and cream with speckles of color throughout.  But this summer bright is my new white!

You can get really creative when color blocking.  Use brighter colors to highlight your favorite features, and use darker colors to minimize.

Color Use

 I found these oversized cateye sunnies at a local gift shop.  They are the prefect way to wear the polarized colored lens look without the standard wayfarer shape.  Gives a girly edge!

Xiao Wen Ju was spotted at Paris Fashion Week in the amazing head to toe, Emerald Green, Lace Valentino jumpsuit.

Thursday: STYLE STEAL

This Thursday is STYLE STEAL day!!  This outfit is proof a girl can look hot, hot, hot and still have cold hard cash in her wallet.

A leopard belt is the must have accessory.  By adding this fierce piece to your wardrobe you can spice up any outfit in a second.  Plus it can go with almost any color.  At less than $20 we have our first STYLE STEAL!

Don’t you just love this necklace?  It reminds me of a knocker on one of those old mansion doors.

To stick with the animal theme I added my jewel eyed tiger bracelet.  Accessories my friend! They can take a plain pair of white pants and  red sweater to fashionable fast!

These white jean leggings are great for tucking and a STYLE STEAL to  boot. He, He!  Right now they are on sale.  Buy 1, get 1 for $29.90.    I do caution, go a size larger than you regularly wear.  These did bunch a bit at the knee and I had to stretch them out.  No sausage knees here:)

With all the cold hard cash saved on my outfit, I bought cupcakes!!

Bring Your Pinterest Closet to Life

Want to make your winter Pinterest closet a reality?  Get the look you love for under $100!

I wish every time I pinned an outfit on #Pinterest it would magically show up in my closet. #socialmedia #quotes

Your wish is my command.

Leopard and denim could not be hotter.  The best thing about all of the pieces below is they can transition into several different outfits.

Here are a few ideas…

Drop the leather pants and add a pair of red denim jeans and riding boots.

Drop the denim top and add a cream flowy blouse and black heels.

Drop the leather pants and scarf and add a dark pair jeans and thin leopard belt.

AWARENESS: Breast Cancer

The month of October, PINK is all around!  Last week the Woodlands ran PINK, for the Memorial Herman “In the Pink of Health” charity event. 

Of course the morning of I couldn’t find a thing to wear so…Target to the rescue:)

I found this navy and pink shamrock blouseand added these great leopard heels for a bit of pizzaz.  Sometimes it’s that simple WOW accessory that really pulls a outfit together.

 

Oh yea, did i mention Bill and Giuliana Rancic were there?  Bill was an amazing motivational speaker and she is so darned cute!! 

 

Bill quoted this saying about “The Riches of the World”.  It was pretty inspirational. 

The short version, “The wealthiest places on earth are not the Middle East for its oil, African diamond mines or Fort Knox.  It is found in our cemetaries where our dreams and desires go unfulfilled.  Buried under the ground are books that will never be written, businesses that will never be started and songs that will never be sang.”  

In other words do something big

You can start today by protecting your future.  Breast Cancer is a very real disease that we are fortunate enough to have a lot of knowledge about. 

With early detection there is a 99% survival rate. 

That means out of 100 women 99 can write their book, start their business, save their dreams.  All they have to do is FEEL THEIR BOOBIES!  Do it in the shower or grab your guy and make it fun.  I found some great tips- Click Here
