Hot Shorts...

What I'm wearing...neon shorts: Jennifer Lopez (Khols), tee: Old Navy, heels: Zara, clutch: DSW, watch: Michelle, bracelets: H&M

There's a heat wave here in CT this weekend! What better to wear on a hot evening than a super hot pair of shorts?! Neon is back in a big way and I think it's best served in small doses! Pair your neon with some basic neutrals and you'll be sure to heat up the night! TGIF!



Minted Monochrome...

What I'm wearing...mint jeans: Celebrity Blues (Khols), blouse: TJ Maxx, heels: Steve Madden, clutch: Aldo

Here is another example of monochrome done right! I just can't get enough mint this spring and this outfit gives you a double dose! In this look, the print in the blouse and the turquoise jewelry break up the all over mint color, giving the outfit more visual interest. Happy Thursday!



Berry Beautiful...

What I'm wearing...jean skirt: Old Navy, blouse: Apt. 9 (Khols), heels: Guess, necklace: Ann Taylor Loft, watch: Michelle

I recently rediscovered this jean skirt in the back of my closet! I think the denim skirt is definitely still a summer staple. You can dress it up the way I did here, or dress it down with a bathing suit and flip flops on the beach. Either way, this skirt is sure to take you from day to night!



Business Casual...

What I'm wearing...tee: Target, jeans: Simply Vera Wang (Khols), blazer: Cynthia Rowley (TJ Maxx), heels: Mossimo (Target), clutch: Aldo, necklace: Forever 21

I just picked up this blazer at TJ Maxx for only $25! I was first attracted to the fun polka dot pattern, but then I was sold by the fit and the price! Just add this one to my growing collection of blazers! I still say that blazers are the easiest way to a perfectly polished look!



Memorial Day White Out...

What I'm wearing...white lace skirt: H&M, blouse: Old Navy, heels: Jennifer Lopez (Khols), watch: Michael Kors

When you're at a loss for what to wear, monochrome is always both easy and fashion forward. Here, I chose to go all white in honor of Memorial Day, but feel free to pick your favorite color and run with it! The only rule when wearing a monochromatic outfit, make sure to add in some pattern or texture to make sure the outfit doesn't fall flat, like I did here with the lace skirt. Also, try putting together different shades of the same color to achieve the same affect! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!




What I'm wearing...jeans: Paris Blues, top: Mossimo (Target), heels: Jennifer Lopez (Khols), necklace: Burlington, watch: Michael Kors

I was feeling a little patriotic for this Memorial Day weekend! You can never go wrong when you combine red, white, and blue! How will you show your USA pride this weekend? This is the unofficial start to summer so have a great long weekend everyone!



Pattern Remix...

What I'm wearing...skirt: Forever 21, blouse: Lauren Conrad (Khols), heels: Zara, bag: DSW

Floral print with stripes? Sure you can!! Pattern mixing is a huge trend this year, and when done right, can be a great way to add interest to any outfit! This trend comes with a few rules though! Try to stick to only two different patterns, any more than that and the outfit becomes too busy. Also, try to keep the two patterns in the same color family so it stays pleasing to the eye. In this look, black and white appears in both the striped skirt and the floral print top. Keep your accessories simple and you're on your way! Now get mixing! 




What I'm wearing...dress: H&M, jean jacket: GAP, bag: Michael Kors, heels: Jennifer Lopez (Khols), necklace: Nordstrom, bow bracelet: JewelMint

I'm loving this bumble bee inspired look! The idea came to me after seeing a bumble bee in my garden over the weekend. It goes to show that outfit inspiration can come from anywhere, so keep your eyes open!



The Long & Short of it...

What I'm wearing...stretch pants: Joyce Leslie, blouse: B Jewel (TJ Maxx), booties: Jennifer Lopez (Khols), bag: Michael Kors, necklace: Joyce Leslie, watch: Anne Klein

This high low trend is very big right now! You can find this look in a top, like the one I'm wearing today, or you can find it in dresses and skirts as well! I love how this top dresses up a simple pair of black stretch pants, and the extra length in the back is also very flattering! Whether it's a top, a dress, or a skirt...give this trend a try! Happy hump day!



Who, Who...

What I'm wearing...tie waist shorts: Forever 21 , owl sweater: Rewind (Khols), wedges: Jessica Simpson, bag: Coach, watch: Anne Klein

Printed light weight sweaters are in for spring! I found this adorable owl print sweater at Khols but they are popping up everywhere in all types of designs and colors. From cute animal prints to fun words and phrases, these sweaters are a great way to make a personal statement. Check out websites like zara.com and asos.com for more conversation starting sweaters! Happy hunting!
