High Society

High Society

Hey y'all  I am back with another obsession! Lately I can just not get enough of the high waist bottoms, so I wanted to do a look! I love the color of these shorts, but this look would look good with a variety of colors. High rise bottoms look great with a top that you can tuck in like this contrast button up. You can also do a night look with a cropped top!

My outfit must-haves

the basics

Hey y'all! I'm back again to talk to you guys about some items you MUST have in your closet. I find that I buy all these items that I just fall in love with and when the time comes to put together an outfit I just stare into my closet lost. I have recently discovered that I am shopping all wrong, (and here I was thinking that I was a pro-shopper) yes get those items that you fall in love with but do not  forget the basics. The key to looking put together and polished is layering. So here I have my favorite layering pieces:
1.The basic tee- This is a must! You should have a variety of colors and patterns, these can be worn under jackets, blazers and chambrays. You can dress them up with a cute hi-low skirt or dress down with a pair of jeans and a scarf.
2. The blazer-  I am seriously addicted to blazers. I have them in almost every color and cut. The blazer is a great item to have because of its versatility. I can dress up a pair of jeans or give structure to a skirt. Blazers also look great over a body con dress just add pumps and you are ready for a night out.
3. The chambray shirt- This has become one of my favorite items in my closet. I wear mine with everything. You can wear a chambray alone as a top with colored skinnies or tucked into a skirt. You can also layer a chambray over a tank or tee and leave it unbottoned..try it!!
4. The dark wash skinny jean- I love a dark wash skinny because to me they look more chic than a lighter wash. You can dress your skinny jeans up with a blazer and cute loafer or dress down with a  cute top and pair of riding boots.

Winter whites

Winter whites

Can you wear white after labor day??? Hellz yea! Well, that's my opinion anyway, rules were meant to be broken! I did a monochromatic look in both day and night! I love comfy sweaters for running around during the day and a scarf is the perfect accessory to complete a look! For the night the peplum accentuates your womanly figure (or gives the illusion of one if needed), while the cap toe heels add instant glamour! Remember for a monochromatic look to try different shades of one color! Let me know what you think or send me you mono-tone looks!

Oh Emerald!

I wanted to do an outfit with the new color of the season...Emerald! I absolutely adore this color and was so excited to see it get some recognition by Pantone. I still can't get enough of the high-low skirt either, so this dress was perfect! I added a leather moto because it just gives the perfect edge to the softness of the dress. Let me know what y'all think!!!
