Back In Black

You guys know this all too well…but I just love wearing black. But who says black has to be boring? Adding some pleats, a cute belt, sparkle flats, and a puffy headband keeps this look fresh and fun.

Do you have a color you are drawn to and wear all the time? How do you keep it from looking boring?

Interplanet Janet

Nothing makes me smile more than a colorful and fun print like this adorable space themed dress. Stars, astronauts, rocket, planets…what’s not to love?

Add on a teddy bear coat and a headband and you got yourself a look!

This dress also reminds me of one of my favorite songs from Schoolhouse Rock, Interplanet Janet:

Interplanet Janet , she’s a galaxy girl,

A solar system Ms. from a future world,

She travels like a rocket with her comet team

And there’s never been a planet Janet hasn’t seen,

No, there’s never been a planet Janet hasn’t seen.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend and it’s out of this world! :-)

Extra Long Weekend Means Extra Fun

Super excited to enjoy my long weekend before my new job starts on Wednesday. I plan on enjoying coffee dates with friends, meeting up some of my favorite blogger pals for lunch, taking advantage of some seriously amazing President’s Day sales, and spending some quality time with Chris & Rocko. Doesn’t get much better than that…am I right?

Trend Alert- Mad for Plaid

I’m beyond excited that fall has finally arrived. The last couple days have been so comfortable…it is so nice to get a break from that terrible humidity. One thing I love most about the fall weather is the fashion. Warm colors, layered looks, and fun prints…it doesn’t get much better than that.

This autumn you will find that plaid is super popular. Wear it in a skirt, a coat, or in your accessories…no matter how you fashion it you’ll look amazing and totally on trend. Here are some of my favorite plaid looks-

Trend Alert- The Denim Dress

I love nothing more than a trend that lasts over time. Right now denim dresses are all the rage! They are just such a classic look that I wouldn't even feel bad about spending a little more on one as I know this is a look that I could wear throughout the changing of seasons...and it will still be in style for years to come. Here are some of my favorites:

What I love most about denim dresses is that you can dress them up or dress them down. Wear them for work or for play. They are just so versatile. Who says that everyone needs a great pair of jeans? I think every gal needs a denim dress in their closet!

I'd love to know what style of denim dress is your favorite and how you'd wear it.
