Thank God It’s Friday!

Today, I felt like I was in my car driving around town all day so I am happy that it’s the weekend. I can’t believe that tomorrow is December 1st! I feel like just yesterday it was summer and I was laying poolside…mmmmmm I’m closing my eyes and imagining…eyes open, it’s cold and December. BUT today, the last day of November, it was nearly 50 degrees! I was so excited at the thought of not having to bundle up and wear a winter coat.


Outfit of the Day




I started  with a basic item, like a short sleeve V-neck tee; try one in a fun color. Then, added a light jacket.

I love the color of my t-shirt; I think it looks great on blondes or “blondes”; I fall in the “blonde” category. I have been dying my hair blonde since I was 11 years old, so for half my life(shhhh)

I decided to add a military style jacket to give my plain tee some edge. I love all the details of the jacket such as the zippered breast pockets and the shoulder detail.

***If you want to try the military trend, look for items such as jackets with details like large buttons, zippers, etc if these accents are gold, even better.; I also think certain silk button down blouses like the ones we all have seen at H&M and Forever 21 are edgy and utilitarian

Add a neutral colored scarf to your jacket for a little extra warmth.

I decided to dig deep in my closet and instead of pulling out a pair of jeans, chose these distressed brown skinny cords

*I feel like people forget about corduroy pants but the Gap makes great skinny cords in good colors

Next I accessorize with gold bracelets. Mines don’t match and range from a $5 Forever 21 bracelet to a David Yurman bracelet (21st BDAY gift!)

I love mixing high-end clothing or jewelry with less expensive pieces, which will give you a unique look

****I am obsessed with my gold spiked bracelet from H&M, (only $4.95); I love how edgy it is

My New Obsession

Bolo Vero Cuoio Lace Up Booties

The things I find in my closet! I had totally forgotten about these Italian leather booties; how is that possible?

Bolo Vero Cuoio describes their boots as punkish and gothic; yes they are different but I think I am drawn to their edginess. Plus I am in love with their color!

Like I have said before, I am usually drawn to classic items with a modern twist but these are anything but classic. I even think they would look great worn with a skirt and brown tights.

*I can think of 2 skirts in my closet right now; one a feminine and romantic blush color skirt that could use a little bit of “punk”

***Question to my readers how would you best describe your style and do you always stick to that style or mix it up?***

One Last Thing….

As I first told you, I don’t want this blog to just focus on fashion because fashion is everywhere and achieving true style is more than just having the right clothes. There’s hair, makeup, accessories, etc., and I want to write about all of these things.

In addition to just putting together this outfit, I also tried a current makeup trend because I was curious if I could pull it of

I’m sure everyone has heard, seen or even tried the dark lip color trend. Maybe you have seen it in a magazine but are afraid to try it? Or maybe you have tried it and it was a disaster! That’s where I come in…


The Before Look

*I am fresh-faced wearing mascara and a little bit of concealer

AND after applying my new COVERGIRL BlastFlipstick blendable lip duo in Glimmer

(I only used the darker lip color)


The “After”

*Color is slightly darker than it appears

I love this look. Now I have a “going out” look that doesn’t involve heavy eye makeup!

**Keep in mind that I have only have on mascara; keeping my eyes makeup, natural and simple so it doesn’t overpower the look I am trying to achieve or look like I am wearing too much makeup**

Also, do a little research in order to find what is the best dark lip color for you. Try InStyle magazine. And I would recommend using a lipstick rather than a lip gloss so that your lip color appears more dramatic and lasts longer.

So, those are my latest outfit and makeup looks. Let me know if you have any questions or comments, I always love feedback!

It’s supposed to be 50 degrees again tomorrow, yay! Enjoy your weekend, I know I will.

      Thank you so much! I love the title of your blog btw! Do you have a favorite pair of heels that you own? I work at Michael Kors and we have killer heels in right now! Literally lol the shoes I was given as part of my “wardrobe” are 5 inch heels with a 1 inch platform and are gold sparkly pumps. I’ll post a pic of them; I call them my “Cinderella” heels haha hope you have a great weekend!

        So jealous. Can’t wait to see the pic! My “fave” pair changes all the time (usually whatever is my newest pair…ha). So, currently, it’s my BCBG zipper/suede booties ( I may not be able to walk too quickly or elegantly in them, but it’s worth it!
