PACK A Punch: Look 2

pinkdressmainpinkdress10pinkdress13pinkdress14pinkdress3pinkdress12pinkdress16pinkdress19Ok … I am DONE with the snow. So, let’s rewind a few posts back to when I shared my fave tip for easy & efficient packing – sticking to a color scheme. Let me refresh your memory. That post featured a pair of printed palazzo pants, a breezy pink top & a colorful wrap. Are you asking yourself what that post has to do with this one? Well, everything! Remember, this pretty pink was the basis for my palette so this solid shift earned an automatic spot in my suitcase. I was able to accessorize with the same wrap and then pile on some gold. I even re-purposed my beach fedora and bag. Talk about achieving optimal cost per wear (aka cost of garment/number of times you wear it … thanks for always putting that CPW bug in my ear, Dress to Impress)! I’m checking that one off the list.

blackfiveblacksixI’ve flipped the switch and by switch, I mean I reversed my coat. For the black side, I kept it super simple and cozy by throwing on these gray sweater Uggs. I swapped my gloves, grabbed an adorable sweater for P and that’s all there is to it. So … whether you’re stuck in the cold and looking for a piece with versatility … or you’re heading on a sunny getaway and need something packable (and cute) … look no further.

brownmainbrownthreebrowntwobrownfourbrownsevenbrownsixbrownoneI’m taking a mini hiatus from my sunny vaca posts to focus on something that might be top of mind (not by choice) for many ... SNOW! Whether you got hit by Jonas or not, I’m sure you have been hearing & seeing plenty about it! Enter this reversible down puffer. Not only is it extremely versatile (stay tuned…the flip side is coming in my next post!) but its down fill also keeps me stylishly warm in frigid temps.  Yet another plus is that this coat can be scrunched up into a ball (no…not a SNOW ball!) to tote or store when I’m lucky enough to ditch this white stuff in favor of some warm yellow sunshine! Hmmm…in a crazy sort of way, this could have actually been part of my “PACK a Punch” series after all – ha!

mainpinksands4pinksands10pinksands17pinksands14pinksands5pinksands8pinksands3A sunny getaway calls for a sunny wardrobe, right?! Yes!!!!!! It also calls for a chic suitcase that doesn’t break the scales … because let’s face it, nothing can put a damper on your trip like a frozen shoulder from your 47389473897 outfits (and shoes)! Ladies, I know you know what I’m talking about! A few years ago, when I started traveling more frequently, I quickly learned the art of savvy packing which really begins with building around a few key pieces and colors. So … on my most recent quest to follow the sun, I decided I’d put on my rose colored glasses. By building around this shade of PINK, I was able to create numerous options for both day and night and this happens to be one of my favorites. A breezy pair of palazzo pants packs well, is easily dressed up or down & is practically synonymous with vacation …

Easing Into 2016

coverupmaincoverup4coverup5coverup6coverup7coverup8coverup9Happy New Year friends!!! You know what the New Year means?!? It’s a fresh crop of 365 days to create outfits (and that gets me super excited)! So, I’m taking the opportunity to do a total reset and ease in with a casual, chic, white ensemble. Why? White is associated with new beginnings, light, goodness … it’s the color of perfection. While I know this year won’t be perfect … lounging on the beach in this cool cover-up (which doubles as a breezy sweater) is pretty darn close! And that’s what I call starting on a high note …

plaidtwoplaidoneAs we near the NEW YEAR (can you believe it?!), I have 2 c’s on the brain … casual and comfy!! I picked up this oversized plaid shirt for the days I want to be just that and maybe I’m ever so slightly holding on to Christmas in my red and green color combo. Like I said … casual, comfy and {post} christmas-y. ;)

This final ‘destroyed denim’ look shows you how to kick it up a notch!  Whenever I want to add a dose of glam, I turn to my good friend … gold. Remember when I featured this top and raved about the glimmer it casts in the sunshine? Well, I pulled it straight from my summer wardrobe into this ultra festive holiday time for a fun rendez-vous. Just add some additional flair with a metallic wrap, clutch & shoes … You know what they say? All that glitters

cashmeremaincashmere5cashmere9cashmere11cashmereonecashmere6cashmere2My last post featured this denim in a laid back day look that screamed fall. This time, I’m stepping it up a notch so the same jeans can work from day to night. Start with a monochromatic layer in the color of your choice (I’m really into this yellow right now because it really brightens things up) and finish with a some eye-catching jewelry (since the color story here is simple, I went for double necklaces plus a bracelet stack), nude heels and a gold tote….It’s a super easy yet stylish ensemble ready for fun with family and friends … Happy Turkey Day!

hatmainhatthreehat3hat9hat8hat4hat10Destroyed denim is everywhere this fall … everywhere. The key for me is finding a pair that isn’t tooooo destroyed because I’m pretty sure everyone knows the sinking feeling when you put your foot right through a big hole when trying to get dressed in the morning! Opps! All of that said, I love styling denim because you can create a plethora of looks. This one is all about FALL … from the hat to the booties to the combo of neutrals … I’m just embracing the season!

maximainmaxifourmaxi12maxi13maxisixmaxi16maxithreemaxitenmaxi11I’m coming at ya with one more ‘great lengths’ post because I’m obsessed with finding outfits suitable for this crazy weather! The colors in this maxi are not only perfect for fall, they make it easy to layer. Score! So, in the morning, throw on an uber cozy oversized cashmere like this pretty blue version and then dare to bare when the sun peaks out in the afternoon. Top this look off with one more layer – subtle accents of nude, gold & leather.
