SUMMER SKIRT/ WINTER STYLE: TRANSITIONAL WARDROBE

Good Morning!

The temperatures are starting to drop here in Alabama and I'm finally having a chance to get into some Winter Time Fashion. Yes to all of this!! Tights, boots, leather jackets and fuzzy sweaters... Here I Am!  

To kick off the season, I decided to pull out this great wrap split midi skirt from Pink Clove. I originally purchased this skirt in late summer and once I got it, the split was a little to high for my taste with a bare leg, but I figured with some tights for the colder season....I may have a winner.



I paired the skirt with this sweet find at the local Dillards' outlet. A cobalt blue, leather waterfall blazer by Peter Nygard.  I know it's alot to take in.  This fabulous find was marked down 65% with an extra 50% off the markdown price. I paid $32.00!!!! for a jacket that was once $165.00.
 Talk about winning!

The mock neck crop from ASOS provided the break in color I needed and I finished the look with a yellow handbag and booties by Bandolino, which were also a steal from Stein Mart...$28.00.



Of course, I had to see what this look would look like my favorite black pumps. 
I actually think the look changed from being funky to chic with just a shoe change. 


I can definitely see this skirt in rotation this season with more colorful tights and knee high boots.....HMMMM

Mixing Prints and Textures!


Good Morning!!

Are you exploring mixed prints in your wardrobe yet? You should.  It's one of my favorite ways to play with fashion.  I'm constantly mixing patterns and prints to create new outfit options in my closet. For example, Today post includes FOUR patterns or textures: Leopard, Polka Dots, Tweed and Reptile. 
Take a Look.



When Mixing Prints always keep one main color as your anchor or primary color.  This color will hold the look together. 


Play with textures. Tweed has numerous shades throughout it, use those shades to mix in another pattern. 


Make sure your shoes pull the look together. Adding another print to my feet would have been a fail move. I like to keep my shoes classic.


Outfit Details All item were already in my closet. 
Start there first!

Sweater: Sears
Shirt: Belk's
Skirt: Target
Handbag: Charming Charlie
Shoes: Unisa

30 Plus Style~50 Shades of Gray

Good Morning Beauties and Beaus!

It's time again for another great fashion moment brought to you by the lovely ladies of 30Plus Style and Myself, of course.  So let’s talk 50 Shades of Gray……First, get your mind out of the gutter…well…Okay I will allow at least a 30 second homage to Mr. Gray; if you have read the book you can now smile from ear to ear.  Now, back to what we came here for:




When it comes to the color Gray or Grey,  I find it to be one of my favorite colors.  It’s another wonderful, neutral color that changes with the material of the clothing.  It's powerful with a structure suit or feminine with a chiffon dress, which is what I love the most about Grey or Gray.  And this month’s post happens to be about bringing the shades of Grey or Gray to life. 




For my look, I decided to take the minimalist approach to this trend. A simple tank dress from Old Navy, now sold out. And my favorite boyfriend blazer from Ashley Stewart, that is about 4 years old. I honestly had no clue they would be so perfect together, I was thinking one was darker and my minimalist approach would roll into some other style type instead and then I would have to pull it together with some accessories and the "minimalist" look would disappear.  
Good thing that didn't happen.


This was perfect, if I say so myself. 
Now you have to ask yourself, what would make this better? LEOPARD OF COURSE!!!!
New Frames! New Hair Color! New Outlook! Look Out 2015!!
 I had to add something to take it over the top and nothing does that better than “Leopard”.  At first,  my mind couldn't process the combination of leopard and gray, but once I changed my shoes and handbag it all pulled together in such a lovely lovely way.  Leopard is Truly a Neutral.


So, what do you think? I would love to hear from you.

How Do You Moto? featuring FTF Gemma Moto

Hey Beauties!!!

So do we not love a great Moto-Jacket? Honestly, think I have about eight and the newest addition to the family is the Gemma Moto by Fashion to Figure.  As you all know, every item in my closet has to pull double duty.  It must go from work to play and work with the seasons. My goal is to one day have a wardrobe that can be worn every season.......Don't ask me how that is working out for me, I don't want to lie to you.

Anywho, I can say this jacket is on the my list of favorite pieces to take everywhere!  I decided to test the waters with two looks. For work: a simple bodycon and pumps and Street Chic: all black and I don't wear all black.  

Which is your favorite?


 I spotted this jacket while at the Grand Opening of the Cobb location in Georgia.  I also had the pleasure of hanging out with my blogger inspiration, The Curvy Fashionista (Link to Wrap Up) and I meet the wonderful team of  Fashion to Figure, it was a weekend of true greatness to say the least. 


The event was a huge success and I fell in love....with the jacket.


The Gemma Moto requires a ALL BLACK LOOK, don't you think?
Jacket: Fashion to Figure| Tee: ASOS| Pants: Jones New York | Shoes: Unisa| Handbag: Steve Madden| Watch: Michael Kors


Now for work, I have to admit it polished up a casual dress. 
I really didn't see wearing this dress for anything beyond a night out on the town, but I changed my mind after adding this jacket.  
Polished and Professional...RIGHT!

Dress: Rainbow Apparel| Pumps: Unisa






 I do have a bit of sad news....It's now longer online, but there are plenty in-store (FTF Locator).  
Good Luck in Your Search!!

See Ya Next Time!
