Blush is a color that up until a year ago - I don’t think I owned one item of pink clothing.  Now, the color is quickly becoming one of my favorites - as seen by my last couple of posts (I think that shaggy blush coat is still so fun.)  Blush can actually be a very versatile color that can easily be worn with an all black look, or paired with grey, and even off-white.  If you are looking to add one item to your closet, I would consider one in blush.

Join me for Something New

what to wear winter

On January 1, I set a goal to get things done in 2016 -- those things that I have not done for reasons of fear, apprehension or just plain procrastination. One of my big goals for 2016 is to start a style business beyond my blog.  One of the main reasons I started my blog and a primary reason for attending Parsons to study Fashion Business and Design (more about that here) was to work as a stylist - so I could help women look their best and feel confident.

So, today, I am happy to announce the launch of DAILY STYLE FINDS: WHAT TO WEAR.

online stylist, what to wear winter

DAILY STYLE FINDS: WHAT TO WEAR is a style series that will show you how with only 15 wardrobe essential pieces (the ones all women should have in their closet) - you can create 20 stylish, on-trend head-to-toe looks. Each of the 20 looks will be presented in a stylish format, along with some beauty suggestions. And, so, this meets everyone’s needs, you will be provided with both casual and work/professional options, so that each look works for all lifestyles.

In addition, as women, we like to seek inspiration and input from others - so as a participant, you will have access to an exclusive DAILY STYLE FINDS: WHAT TO WEAR online community where you can ask style questions, share what you are wearing, and find more style inspiration.

You can get this for FREE if you are one of the first 5 readers to sign-up using the discount code (Code: dailystylefinds). In addition, for all that register, you will have a chance to WIN $50 PayPal cash or Nordstrom Gift Card. If you are not quick enough to grab one of the first spots, you can still sign-up for only $9.95.

Click HERE to sign-up. 
Registration begins January 19, and the series will begin on February 1.

This is sure to be a fun, new, and stylish adventure!

Lastly, I would like to say "THANK YOU" to all my supportive blog friends who are helping me promote this new adventure.  I cannot tell you how much their support means.

Four Style Tips for Building a Wardrobe

Today, I am sharing four STYLE tips to make the most of what you buy and wear. 

1. Buy classic STAPLES.
I am trying to shop more for quality, staple pieces that I will wear for several years. One of my favorite wardrobe staples is my leather moto jacket. I have owned if for a few years, and I wear it year-round.  In the spring, I layer it over short sleeve tees, and the winter I layer a fur vest or blanket scarf over it for extra warmth.

(Original post here)

Jacket: Old (similar here or here)
Vest: Last Call Neiman Marcus (similar here)
Sweater: Halogen (last seen here or here) // Beanie: BP. (last seen here)
Cords: J Brand (similar here) (last seen here) // Socks: Nordstrom
Boots: Hunter (last seen here) // Lipstick: Nars (Heat Wave)


(Original post here)

Jacket: MODA (Similar here or here) // Tee: Old Navy // Jeans: Paige (Similar here or here)
Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelet: Sophie Harper via Rocksbox
Necklace:Kendra Scott via Rocksbox // Ring: Gorjana via Rocksbox
Wedges: DvF (Similar here or here) // Leopard Pouch: J. Crew

2. Buy items to MIX & MATCH.
I try to buy items that I can mix and match with other items in my closet - so that I get the most wear out of them.  My grey jeans are probably one of my most versatile jeans.  I recently shared in this post how to wear grey jeans 5 different ways.

LOOK 1 // LOOK 2 // LOOK 3 // LOOK 4 // LOOK 5 (not seen)
3. Invest in QUALITY Pieces.
I like to buy designer jeans.  To me, they are an investment that I will have for many years.  They are my splurge; but when it comes to buying designer jeans, I do not pay full price. I shop around, and I only buy them when they are on sale.  Two of my favorite places to buy designer jeans for under $100 are Saks Off Fifth and Last Call Neiman Marcus.

4. Add a POP of color.
I believe adding a pop of color, like red to any looks makes a statement.  It stands out.  If you do not like red, you can always opt for orange or yellow, or even a blue or green.
1. Turtleneck: J. Crew (Similar option) // 2. Sunglasses: Prada (25% off)
3. Sweater Dress: Joe Fresh (Under $50) // 4. Jeans: Topshop (On sale $40)
5. Coat: J. Crew // 6. Bag: Michael Kors // 7. Bootie: Nine West
8. Rollerball Trio: Estee Lauder // 9. Boots: Hunter
