Not everything that glitters is gold…sometimes it’s silver

The other night I was meeting a friend for drinks after work and she came in wearing the most fabulous silver shoes. She had worn them to work with a simple pencil skirt and short sleeve blazer. I was intrigued by the pairing and she explained to me that she treats her silver heels like a neutral. That comment has stuck with me. I love it. So I immediately went home and bought these silver heels from Schutz. I’ve worn them with a pencil skirt like my friend, with pants and even jeans. As a side note I came across the Schutz brand when I was looking for a new tan pump. I love Stuart Weitzman pumps but honestly I treat my pumps pretty harshly so I needed something at a lesser […]

My sale find

It is no secret that I’m a big fan of  the Vince clothing line. In fact my daughter shamed me into not buying anything from their line for a while. It is true, my closet looks like a small Vince boutique but their clothes hold up so well and I can wear their items (particulary their blouses) at work and after work. Double bonus! So I as I was perusing the sales this weekend I came across this beauty. Admittedly I’m kind of done of shopping for summer clothes unless the item can be worn as a transition piece (which is certainly possible here in Alabama). What do you think of this Vince sleeveless Jacket? Originally priced at $795.00, it was on sale at Saks for $286.20!! I love the gray color and […]

Opposing Forces: Must v. Lust

So this time next week, I will be on Spring Break with family and friends and looking forward to a much needed get away. I’m starting my packing list which always means a few new purchases. But I know it can be an expensive time of year so here are a few ideas which can go from must to lust depending on what your budget allows. I also love mixing up high end and lower end items. It’s more fun that way. I’m a big fan of a lightweight scarf for Spring. You can wrap it around your neck or your shoulders to add a little more layer. I found this one from Banana Republic or if you can this light weight cashmere scarf from Rag and Bone is a beautiful color […]

Get your motor running…

This past weekend I finally pulled out my fall/winter clothes. I know that we will still have a few more hot days but honestly by this time of year I don’t want to see my legs in shorts. One of the things that I do is make a list of items that I can buy to “refresh” my wardrobe. One of the items on my list… a moto jacket. I love this jacket because I can wear to work and then transition into the weekend because let’s face it, I hate spending money on just work clothes. I’ve hooked you up with a few choices as well as a mood board to show how it transitions from work to play. Ben-Amun Long Tassel Necklace Rebecca Taylor Boucle Moto Jacket Fiona Paxton Necklace DL 1961 […]

i’m all about the dress

like caroline there are some days that i’m not feeling the shorts but when it gets hot i need an alternative and lately i’ve been all about the dress. luckily vince has had some great dresses this season and with some good sales i’ve been able to stock up. i love the vince dresses because like most of their other items they are timeless and i’ll have them in my closet for years to come. another plus is that i can dress up and down so my dress(es) can take me from a picnic to a night out. the ones that i’m showing all have a draw string waist. i like that feature because my waist is one of my better features but i’ve seen the shift dress on and it looks […]
