It's that season! Everyone is trying to do a better work/life balance by getting things done while also ensuring that we meet with friends before the year closes. We make the right decision in taking care of those that we hold dear whether it's buying gifts, having lunches, sending cards and more. We love rocking out with fun looks as we know our days will be longer and with chilly temperatures on the other side, we know that it's a matter of time before we're somewhere cozy having the essential F's - food, friends/family and fun!
To look good no matter what, we want to ensure that we're ready for wherever our days take us! I'm loving this Coldwater Creek crinkled shimmer shirt which is so cute and has texture visually as well as physically. Pair this with a fab pair of skinnies by Joe's Jeans (I live in jeans from this brand and they never fall short of expectations)! Complete the look with a number of fab items including this Rachel Zoe faux fur coat which has such a chic look. Add a pop of color into this neutral look with this coral/rose medium satchel by Chloe. Add a few extra inches with Laurence Dacadewhich are black and gold and are stretch suede. Rock this ring with Daniela De Marchi which is bronze and quartz coral ring which is a favulous cocktail piece that looks amazing and brings in warmth to your overall look.
I love when it's time to travel (as you saw yesterday) and I love planning his outfit too. I love keeping it simple as you want to be able to access everything as well as to ensure that he's comfortable. I love these mustard stretch skinny jeans by Topman. Pair this up with a white tee by Vstr Visitor and is available on Swell. Let him slip into this Gucci leather drivers which are as comfortable as one can be on a flight and then hitting the ground running! With Tom Ford's sunglasses the look is nearly complete and a guy in aviators is never a bad thing!
Being a guy on the go, I'm all about protecting his iPad and interestingly enough, I make sure he has a number options. For this look, I love how he's rocking caramel and mustard tones so mobileexpressions by LuxMobile's textured iPad case is exclusively available at Target. They have you covered for a number of your most important tech items. He can slip this into his Obey Messenger bag which keeps everything stored and within hand reach!
In our last week at looking at 5 accessories that are apart of my favorite ways to complete a look, we have to go super chic! This is perfect whether you're looking to get decked out for NYE, a gala or anything else where you need to look beyond phenomenal. Start off with a dress that definitely is a conversational piece from the moment that you walk into the room! When it comes to these pieces, there is no other designer to think about other than Donna Karan! I love this twisted jersey stretch dress which is very architectual in appearance; however, being the perfect way to look amazing in comfort. A dress like this doesn't need a lot of assistance but when it comes to true wow power, this look will look just amazing with my picks.
I don't talk about earrings a lot but I love Melinda Maria's Pod Collection Black Onyx Chandelier Pod Pave Earrings which add a textured look and a decadence as well. I'm obsessed with Lanvin's Pave Crystal & Rope Necklace which adds a regal element to the look. Slip on one of my fave designers, Stephen Dweck'sMother of Pearl cocktail ring which adds some levity to the pave and onyx portion of the look. Since you're dressing for an occasion, the shoes cap off the look of dazzle with Pierre Hardy's Circle Sandal which is a crystal encrusted suede shoe. Finally, I'm loving VBH's large envelope clutch which has a fab glimmer to it.Together or separate this is the epitome of neutral adoration.
Navy is such a staple color that you may feel confused on how to dress it up. With the in between weather that we are experiencing, I thought it would be best to look at how you can rock this shade in a comfy way as well as being able to work well within your lifestyle! First it's all about the leggings, I love these grey Helmut Lang as it's stretch and jersey which allows your legs to look phenomenal. Pair this up with this fab navy Schumacher blouse which has just enough to detail where you can wear it out for a fun night out while also having it on when you're running errands, doing meetings and more! Finish off the overall look off with these fabulous Gianmarco Lorenzi suede boots! I love that it has a bit of that military embellishment which is a nice detail that you can show off with each step.
When it comes to adding a bit more bling, I love Michael Kors' rose gold watch that has a navy face. Ellen Himic's pendant smoky quartz necklace is the perfect piece that will make your blouse look fab. Finally, I'm all about rings and love this Charlotte Bjorlin D'Elia quartz ring is known as the beast ring as I love its claw like appearance.
