Cool Girl

I wonder how far into your thirties one can get away with this look. Its just that sometimes this style calls out to me. Maybe it's my way of rebelling against the mom in her thirties persona or maybe its just because I like it. 

This used to be my style almost everyday when I first moved to new york. Even now, if I didn't feel like totally going all the way with the hipster look, I'd still incorporate every single one of these pieces into my wardrobe. I especially love the cuff.

Anchors, Chains and Perforations

Funny how every few years I find a sweatshirt with an anchor on it and some cool detail like drawstrings or in this case zippers, and wear the HELL out of it.  I love Jet clothing, so I knew before I even tried it on that this would be a top my husband would get sick of from me wearing constantly. 

The necklace is one from my shop, and it seems to go well with anything from sweatshirts to cocktail dresses, so I consider that a home run! You can get the necklace here.

Sometimes you find a pair of shoes that one would either love or hate... I happen to LOVE these but could see how they might border on somewhate geriatric! The perforations and the white wedges are so unique for an oxford and they are sooooo comfortable. I cant get enough of them! You can get them here, although they were on sale at the outnet for a while, so maybe they will go back on sale soon:)
The oxfords also come in red and bluehere

Party Inspiration: Flower Arranging With Friends

 Party Inspiration: Spring Flower Arranging Brunch with girlfriends.

 I'd wear this exact outfit:

We'd all sit at this beautifully done table...
 I'd hand out flower arranging kits similar to these at bhg.com
I'd take random items around the house, like used up perfume bottles and put them on the table vase options...
I'd put out this "arrangement" of cookies in the center of my dessert table, bc every party of mine has to have a dessert table...
I'd rent vintage furniture and move it outside so we can all relax on comfy chairs in the sun after all our hard work.
While drinking cocktails with flower garnishes of coarse!

Camo and Leather

I wore this look to see the James Turell exhibit at the LACMA, followed by dinner at fun "no named" restaurant/venue that has that speakeasy vibe going on. They even open the little sliding peep hole to see who it is trying to come in. 

This outfit was perfect for both destinations. Meaning I never once felt uncomfortable or out of place. Although I probably would have dressed down if I had just gone to the exhibit and dressed up if I had just gone to the speakeasy. 

The necklace is from my line, and you'll be seeing me wear it a lot. I love mixing metals and it goes with everything. In fact, lately the only necklaces I've been wearing are my own. It's fun to see each piece through the whole process of it just starting as an idea, to making its way into my wardrobe:)

How to Keep Pastels from Looking "Little-Girlish"

I love peaches and pastels for spring but I also like to keep them a little edgy...I find that sometimes pastels can remind me of my childhood Easter dresses. I think this cool, printed top and fun box clutch add a modern, grown up touch. And the clean lines and cut of this blazer keep the look less fussy and frilly.

I finally bought this dress I blogged about a few weeks ago. I have to say, the sheer legs were tough for me to get used to, although I love the look. Im into clean and modern pieces lately and I feel like this Necklace and Clutch are just that.

Happy Friday!

Whistle While You Work

Today I am sharing my workspace with you.  I love coming in here and losing myself in creating jewelry, but I also come in here to blog and pay bills. 

I set up areas to display some of my jewelry...

As well as an area to store my most often used supplies...

I display these adorable motivational Pencils in this Mint Julep Cup...

And in addition to hanging photos of the people I love, I found some fun, girly gold and white prints to help motivate me...
