Candy Red

red shoes, nordstrom  ONE / TWO /THREE / FOUR / FIVE / SIX

As I mentioned the other day, red is a bold, on trend color this season, and I am pretty sure it is going to be sticking around through fall.  For spring, I am looking for a pair of red shoes to wear with my simple uniform of jeans and a tee (or sweater). Here are just a few of my picks.  Which is your favorite?  I am leaning towards #four or #five.

Fashion Frenzy

buy one, get one free, bogo, the limited, pencil skirts, denim jackets, statement necklaces
five. Henley / six. Lace Top
seven. Chevron Skirt / eight. Leopard Skirt

I love sales! And, I really love buy one, get one free sales - because it really is 50% off every item.  Today, after 5PM, The Limited is having a fashion frenzy with a buy one, get one free sale (Code: Frenzy).  These are just a few of the items you may find in my shopping cart.

Denim jackets are a favorite item of mine, especially in the spring/summer.  I love to wear them with dresses, skirts, jeans (yes, even jeans, denim on denim is a big trend right now).

I think The Limited has one of the best selections of statement necklaces.  Every time I wear this necklace, I get a compliment.  I have it on today, and I got a compliment from the first person I saw at work.

The combo of these two tops kind of looks like Christmas, but I like green paired with white denim, and I don't own much green.  Also, this fiery red (sort of an orange color) seems to be a popular color (and one that will be around - given how it was seen over and over on the fall 2014 runways recently at NYFW.

The Limited has the best pencil skirts.  I like their fit, and they are always coming up with new prints and color combinations.  Skirts for me have really replaced dress pants at work, except for this winter because it has been a little too cold to wear skirts, even with tights.

How to Wear: Stripes and Dots

j. crew factory dotted dress, gap striped blazer, atlantic-pacific blog, nordstrom, kate spade initial bracelet

Shop the Looks:
One. Blazer / Two. Blouse / Three. Jeans 
Four. Handbag / Five. Pumps / Six. Dress
Seven. Bracelet  / Eight. Handbag / Nine. Pumps

I have mentioned this before, but I love being able to get a lot of wear out what I buy, and being able to mix and match different things in my closet.  When I was looking back through some Atlantic-Pacific blog posts, I spotted a few looks styled around a striped blazer that reminded me a lot of one I had seen at Gap. This blazer would definitely be a great transition piece for spring, and something you could get a lot of wear out of -- dress up a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans or pair it with a fun sprint polka dotted dress - plus it is on sale!

What I am Loving Now

Look #1:

Look #2:

Look #3:

I love looking at what other bloggers are wearing for inspiration - to see how they wear a certain pair of jeans or how they pair different colors or patterns together.  What I am Loving Now in what I am seeing is RED worn multiple ways.  Either paired with pink and leopard for a more feminine look, or for a more casual, somewhat grunge look red plaid mixed with stripes (and sometimes leopard) and boyfriend jeans, or for a monochromatic look red pants and sweater mixed with a little edge of a moto jacket and fingerless gloves.  I love all these looks, and to re-create them I sometimes use ShopStyle if I want to find an alternative (a more budget-friendly option or if something is no longer available) to what the actual blogger is wearing.

I am not sure if I have mentioned it before, but Shopstyle is my go to search engine for finding different items. If I am looking for a leopard print coat, I go to Shopstyle type in leopard coat, and then I can specifically sort by color, brand, store, price range, etc.  It is a perfect (and easy) way to search through thousands of products, rather than going specifically to a store site.  I am not sure what I did before Shopstyle.  If you have not used it, I definitely recommend checking it out.

Shop the Shoes:
7. Steve Madden Boot (Sale $67)  / 8. Ugg Boot

I am excited about navy (and other shades of blue) that seem to be popping up in shoes, jackets (this jacket is on my wish list), and handbags this spring (late winter) season. Typically, I have associated navy with business suits and nautical themes, but blue is really re-creating itself into a more playful, all around color this season. Blue is also very versatile and can be mixed with red for a pop of excitement or be subdued paired with beige. I am definitely excited about blue this season, and its endless possibilities.

If you have been following the street style at NYFW, you may have noticed that faux fur (or real fur) is a huge trend.  I have styled two looks around this burgundy faux fur coat.  The first look was inspired by The Style Scribe and the second look by NYFW.

For some style inspiration on how to wear fur, here are a few looks...

What to Wear: Jeans and Tee

Shop the Look:
1. Tee / 2. Leather jacket / 3. Bracelet / 4. Pumps / 5. Jeans 

Gap: 30% off (Code: Game)

You may often hear others talk about their "uniform" - meaning their go to outfit that is easy and doesn't take a lot of thought.  Well, for me, it probably would be jeans, a white tee, and jacket (most likely leather).  I like a look that is simple with not a lot of pattern, except for the shoes, which most likely are leopard print ones. That pretty much sums up my "uniform" - which I wish I could wear everyday if I could.  If I was to hang up my jeans and tees in my closet - it would probably look something like this - but most definitely not as many -- Can you imagine having this many pairs of jeans??

 I think the sweatshirt trend is here to stay for a while, and I love how it can be mixed with just about anything - leather skirt, distressed denim - dressed up or down. Sweatshirts are no longer are just for lounging around.  ILY COUTURE is a great place to find some fun sweatshirts - like this "Weekend" one or this "Wifey" one. If you haven't checked out their store - be sure to - they have some great jewelry pieces and perfect tees.
