Earn Your Stripes

Not sure about you but I am totally holding on to summer! I am crushing on this skirt from Shabby Apple . This navy striped number exudes nautical vibes. If you have been following along you may remember my post on pattern play. I had mentioned that stripes are a great place to start!

Stripes can be paired with animal or floral prints. I kept it simple in this look with a chambray button down & chestnut block heels. We don't have many days of summer left (especially if you live in New England like me) grab a hold of them & get all the fabulous summer looks you can get in!

Well fash dolls till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Faux Leather in the Office

I am obsessing over faux leather. Skirts, dresses, pants, little accents, you name it. I wore a faux leather skirt for Thanksgiving and I am a true believer in wearing faux leather anywhere, even in the office.

This dress features a ponte knit top with a faux leather skirt. I paired this number with a white blazer, covered my legs with black tights, and completed the look with pearls and cheetah heels. This ensemble exudes femininity with an edge, it is classic yet chic. A great example on how to wear your faux leather in the office.

Faux leather can come off rather edgy and often thought as a fabrication for a night out. Well the perfect combination of accessories can transition your faux leather to the office. I challenge you to put your most fashionable foot forward next time you head into work. It is easy to get in the habit of forgetting style when dressing for work. Don't forget that dressing and fashion simply isn't just about garments and name brands, it is about expressing yourself and exuding confidence in who you are!

Till next time dolls! I hope the snow didn't hit you too hard.

Give your Boyfriend's Closet a Try

If you are single, fear not! Sometimes taking a style note from the guys isn't a bad thing. The boyfriend trend has been around for some time. Now  I am not saying to go shopping in the men's department (but I am not going to stop you either). What is the boyfriend look? It is a bit more of a relaxed, looser, boxier fit.

Shown is a longer more boxier boyfriend blazer with a feminine twist which is the animal print roll cuff. The jeans are also a more relaxed boyfriend fit feminized with heels. The key to pulling off the "boyfriend" look is to always add a hint of feminism. I balanced this look with this awesome bow bag.

Boyfriend + Feminine Twist = One chic look

This is a really simple way to put together a chic outfit. Give it a try for yourself, you won't regret it! Happy Styling!

Give your wardrobe a touch of sophistication

IMG_0543-4IMG_0555-7IMG_0562-12IMG_0577-17 Quick! Take a moment to in-vision yourself or someone you know in a blazer. What is your initial interpretation? The person you pictured must look put together, authoritative, professional, or intellectual. These thoughts are common when describing blazers, they add instant style to any ensemble. The blazer is a staple piece worth investing in. The beauty of these jackets is that they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Featured is this black and white striped blazer found at Daisy Riley (Plymouth, MA) for $69.00. The jacket is dressed up over a little black dress with patent leather red pumps perfect for work. Transition your blazer to a less formal event like drinks with the girls or date night with your man by pairing it with jeans, a basic t-shirt, and fabulous heels. Go completely causal by kicking off your pumps and throwing on a pair of flats or sneakers, a great look for adventures or a day of shopping. (Chuck Taylor's are my personal fav)

Typically, when searching for wardrobe staples the key is to purchase neutral colors, this allows for versatility. There are a plethora of different styles blazers available to you. You may find a blazer that will fit perfect throughout the torso but, the sleeves are too long. Buy it and get the sleeves hemmed. I always tell my clients that ready to wear(buying off the rack) is always almost ready to wear. Meaning, manufacturers cut clothing to different specifications so, if you find a piece you love and fits you perfect for the exception of one spot, buy that item and take it to a seamstress.

Well dolls I hope this has inspired you to go out and find your special blazer. This jacket will add instant sophistication to your wardrobe. As illustrated blazers can be accessorized for any occasion, you will definitely get your moneys worth.

Till next week! Stay Sassy xo
