Spring Is Here: Alexander Wang Spring 2014



When Alexander Wang sent his models down the runway last September sporting his Spring 2014 collection, many couldn't wait to get their hands on these Parental Advisory sweatshirts, myself included.  Well, spring has sprung!  The collection has now hit the stores so it's time to start shopping!

Borrowed From The Boys



I have been discovering that one of the best places to find maternity clothes is my husband's closet.  I am lucky to have married someone who loves fashion as much as I do, and his closet is one of my favorite places to raid these days. (I've actually been told several times I should feature him on the blog, which is always a thought for the future.)  Between the v-neck sweaters and endless number of button downs overflowing his closet, they seem to be a perfect fit for my growing bump.  Here I styled one of his shirts with skinny black jeans and threw on a boyfriend blazer for extra warmth.  I finished the look with OTK boots and pearls to add a feminine touch to an otherwise masculine look.  Pearls are popping up everywhere this spring and I couldn't be happier to pull mine out of my jewelry box as I love their timeless presence and femininity.

Green and Black




I bought this dress the other day and will be wearing it throughout my pregnancy.  I love how easy it is to throw on, and how it can be styled casual for day or dressed up for evening.  It would also be perfect with a blazer and pumps for the office.  These fleece lined footless tights by Plush are my new favorite item.  They are the most comfortable tights I have ever worn, and since they are lined with fleece they actually keep me warm during this never ending winter.  Plush also makes them in maternity and to all my pregnant readers, I highly recommend them.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's Day!  Does anyone have fun plans to celebrate?  Mike and I don't usually make a big deal out of Valentines Day, but tonight we decided to go out to dinner.  In case your wondering what to wear or need to grab a last minute gift, here are some outfit ideas and items that fit the occasion. Whether your getting together with a husband, significant other, or close group of girl friends, I hope you all enjoy your day.

1. Although a lot people think it's cliche, you can never go wrong with a red dress.  I love this one from Alice and Olivia.
2. This CaseMate iPhone case gives you a little sparkle every day.
3. What's better than one Chanel color?  Three.  Chanel Trio Nail Polish Set.
4. I love these Vita Fede rings, and you can never go wrong with diamonds.  Emma Triple Ring and Mini Crystal V Ring
5.These Alexis Bittar Golden Pave Crystal Drop Earrings would look great dressed up or with jeans.
6. A red lip is perfect for Valentine's day.  Dolce and Gabbana Lipgloss.
7. I've been obsessed with this Elizabeth and James Cynnie Sling Bag.  Love this pale pink color and also comes in red!
8. A printed skirt and crop top makes a romantic outfit.  Especially love this skirt and top from Tibi.

One of the best things about New York Fashion Week, besides previewing the shows, is seeing all of the street styles.  It's one of my favorite sources for outfit inspiration, especially during this never ending winter.  Here are some fresh ideas for cold weather dressing until spring arrives.

Obsession Of The Week: Tibi Britt Crystal Mules



If you're wondering what shoes you'll need to be adding to your wardrobe this spring, one style that is a must  have is the mule.  I especially love this pair by Tibi.  Just recently noticing them after seeing fashion forwards sport them on the streets of NYC for fashion week, I instantly fell in love.  The mix of wood, leather and crystals are perfect and I'm hoping to add these to my wardrobe very soon.

How To Wear A Crop Top In Your 30's


Crop tops were popping up all over the Spring/Summer 2014 runways, and now that they are hitting the stores, you may be wondering how to pull of the look.  Don't worry, this look isn't just for girls in their 20's.  If done right, crop tops can be stylish for those in their 30's and even 40's. Below are ways to make this trend more age appropriate.

1. Layer a crop top over a longer shirt.  A blouse work great under a cropped sweater or top, just make sure to wear a slim fit blouse so you don't get extra bulk.

2. Pair a crop top with a high-waist skirt or pant.  This way you don't get more than a peek-a-boo glimpse of your tummy.

3. Wear a crop top under a suit for a more polished and sophisticated look.

4. Add a sheer layer over your crop top.  By adding a sheer blouse or sweater it gives off the illusion of not appearing so bare.

I hope this helps you enjoy this fun and stylish trend!
