Trend Thursday

Dress your age, yet still have fun.

I think it's incredibly important to continue being in fashion and dress stylishly till the day you die, but it is important to keep in mind some basic key rules. 

1. Dress your age. 
Do not borrow clothes from your daughter's closet or shop in the Junior's department if you are 30+ years old.
2. Don't dress conservatively just because you are older. 
Just because you are aging does not mean that you can't have fun with fashion and be experimental. 
3. Be your own person. 
Keep in mind when getting dressed in the morning that you still are the same person even though you may look or feel different than you did 30 years ago. Therefore, use these same rules that you did 30 years ago and if your gut tells you you look like you're trying too hard, then you probably are.  

Probably in their 70's but are still rockin' it and looking stylish as ever.

Royal Blues

This Fall/Winter/Spring, try incorporating bright colors into your wardrobe. It can be daunting, but fun when you realize color is actually a great addition to your clothing other than plain old black. Royal blue is my all-time favorite color-not navy, not baby blue but royal.

When I say, incorporate color, it doesn't mean everything you wear has to be bright. Instead, pick an article of clothing or accessory that you wish to be bright and contrast it with subtle tones that won't conflict with the tones and patterns of the fabric.

Like my last Trend Thursday post, I featured bright totes. Accessories are a great option to start off with if you feel hesitant to wear a bright orange skirt for example.

Fall Days

Today was the perfect Fall day. 
Sun streaming through my blinds when I woke up this morning, crisp cold air and frost covering the tips of the grass. 
Bundled in a scarf, knits and boots, my roommate and I walked to our nearest coffee shop and bought a latté & scone and enjoyed the gorgeous day.

Hope you enjoyed your Sunday!

The Colored Tote.
Something as simple as a pop of color can easily make an outfit stand out. Lately, I've been obsessed with colorful totes that don't match with the rest of your outfit but instead work as a perfect contrast. There's nothing edgier than bright popping accessories. 
Take a look at a few of these that I found...

 Perfect contrast colors.

Versalitity. Use as a clutch or purse.

Trend Thursday

A solid white or cream blazer is an essential article of clothing that every girl (or guy) should have. It can easily dress up or down an outfit and make it all tie together. For example, if you feel like wearing jeans and a tee, pair your look with a blazer and you will instantly go from casual to urban chic. 

Olivia looks stunning in this white blazer. Defintely dresses down the look so it's not too "red carpet" but still gives it an elegant feel.
