Avoid Going Stir Crazy this Winter

IMG_3012

Those cold temperatures make going outside seem unthinkable; however I was determined to not let the cold weather beat me into submission over the weekend. Staying in and cozying up in front of the tv was very tempting. That is pretty much what I did on Saturday; but I was determined to get my butt into gear and get out on Sunday. The first step to helping motivate myself to brace the frigid temperatures was ensuring that I would be…

Winter Pick-Me-Up

During the colder months all I want to do is hibernate; but it’s now March. This means in a couple of months (hopefully); we will be welcoming the warmer temperatures and saying so long to winter, baby! Spring weather, can you hurry up already?! This winter weather is wearing me down; however I am happy to still have the opportunity to wear this beauty of a coat – which BTW is currently on sale here. Adding unexpected pieces to your look…

Grunge Chic

Decades have passed since the 90s; however styles always find a way of coming full circle. The grunge era has made its way back to fashion relevancy.

I was thrilled to be seated directly across from the pair. Events like these are instrumental in helping the local fashion…

Lingerie Inspired Fashion

Showing a hint of what’s underneath your clothing is always alluring. Wearing under things as actual clothing has become the norm in fashion. Making the transition from under garment to an actual wearable outfit piece is a matter of the mind. For starters you have to get over the idea of these garments being exclusively worn under your clothing. Once you can let that go, you can create a similar look with ease. I wore these  Berkshire Legs tights with exposed garters for an…

Pink Bomber

IMG_2200

The bomber jacket is not a new thing; but it has soared to a pivotal place in fashion relevancy in the last year. A bomber lends edgy street style to any look. There’s something tomboyish and cool about wearing a bomber with feminine pieces. I am inherently pretty feminine. I don’t typically wear a lot of activewear. That is in part why I chose a pink bomber. The color is a nice twist since the style is traditionally masculine. The fit…
