LACE

  I am a sucker for lace and pleats. There is something about both of these materials that add depth and dimension to your overall look. Plus I love the way they swing when you walk, it almost appears like you are strutting instead of walking, or in my case waddling >_< A few days ago I was struggling to find anything that would fit me in my closet, up until I found this gorgeous lace number that was hidden under a pile of stuff I purchased from ZARA. My first thought, what was I thinking when I bought it in a…

TWEED

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe it’s November and we are a few weeks away from Christmas. Time flies by fast, so fast that we are officially 13 weeks away from the birth of our twins. Also, what quickly sneaked up on me was the fact that nothing fits me in my closet. Thankfully, I found two amazing pieces at Banana Republic from their fall/winter 2016 collection.

I have dreamed of owning something tweed for ages because the material…

Today I have a deeper appreciation for the fabric Lacoste…

DISTRACT

It seems that fall fashion tends to intensely focus on over the knee boots. When OTK boots first came on the scene, I was saying a prayer of thanks for allowing me to wear my favorite dresses and keeping my feet cozy warm. They are the chicest shoes to wear for the season and perfect to take your style to a whole new level. Gigi and Kendall embraced OTK boots and accented them with a modern touch during fashion week. They styled them with oversize sweaters, thigh high skirts, and short shorts. With all of my favorite celebs rocking this trend, I took the…
