fall trend: winter neutrals

since coming out of her post pregnancy hibernation, kim kardashian has been showing a clear trend with her wardrobe: neutrals. while during her pregnancy, she seemed to only wear black now for fall she has moved into lighter neutral looks. 

 commonly, she has worn a camel colored coat with variations of white or light brown looks underneath. i actually feel it is a very refreshing look for her. especially with the blond hair, it brightens her back up.

party with partyskirts!

remember when i blogged on my new obsession, partyskirts? well i styled this partyskirts inspired look via polyvore.

My New Obsession: PARTY SKIRTS!

This past Friday at work, I met the cutest ginger (a redhead) named Lauren. While shopping, she tried on one of our dresses, shoes, & worked a clutch into the look. She looked absolutely adorable and I knew she was definitely a fashionable girl. Through us talking while I finished her purchase, she told me about the company she had with her sister called PARTY SKIRTS.

Mariel & Lauren Armstrong

She explained that her mother used to make them skirts when they were younger so they made them into their own phenomenon in Vancouver. (Where they live now!) And I see why… they are so stinkin’ cute! PARTY SKIRTS are high waisted 100% silk skirts that come in various colors for every girl.

Whether your a girly girl or have rocker chic style, PARTY SKIRTS work with all styles. They are a great new staple piece to have in your closet. And I feel an be essential for party (obviously!) and for work. (I definitely need one sent my way! I would rock one non stop.) You can see PARTY SKIRTS at their website skotapparel.com and on twitter & instragram at partyskirts! 
Thanks Lauren! And I wish you & Mariel much success in the future!

Holiday Style: Pajamas

During the holidays, the time shared with family and the presents are the most important factors. Just important are the pajamas you wear on Christmas, because you are being photographed and you have to always look like you just rolled out of bed….in chic and fun pajamas.

Here are a few styles that are comfy, chic, and fun pajamas styles:

Steve Madden ‘Cozy Up’ Thermal PJ’S: $58

Thermals are always comfortable and if you are in a cold area you can still use them underneath your clothing.

Nick & Nora Footie Pajamas: $24.99

I love one piece footie pajamas! They are so fun and make you feel like a kid again…one problem is that you can get really hot in them during the night.

Victoria’s Secret Flannel Pajamas: $39.50

Flannel Pajamas are always a classic style. And to add extra fun, you can always add a fun printed tank top under your flannel shirt and leave it unbuttoned.

Style Cap: Jordan

Meet Jordan! One of my coworkers at Kate Spade, she wore this very chic look this past Saturday and I had to capture the look. She had on a black long sleeve shirt, tweed skirt, and flats. I also loved the zipper details on the back of the shirt and skirt. We are having our first taste of fall weather here in the desert so her look was the right way to bring in the fall.

With the cold weather, Jordan decided to bring out her tweed Kate Spade that she bought earlier this year. Under the skirt was actually a long sleeve dress from Target, because she didn’t have a black long sleeve shirt. She frequently wears fitted dresses under skirts. (Which I will be definitely trying out.) She chose a very nice gold statement necklace to tie the look all together.
