A little green with envy

Busy day tomorrow, lots of meetings which means I need to feel comfortable sitting non stop for oh 6 hours or so. I figured the pencil skirt is stretchy enough (yay spandex) and my top is loose enough not to feel constricted. Oh and I paired them with some pretty uncomfortable shoes but its don't matter cuz ill be sittin all day.

Top- Jcrew Factory $30
Skirt- R&W $15
Shoes- Joe Fresh $20
Necklace- H&M $15

Mustard and animal print

I am into colors these days. I work in a pretty conservative office- colored pants may shock the execs. Which is why I mix and match my colors and prints on the weekend!
Jeans: h&m $10
Necklace: target $14
Mustard cardi: j crew factory outlet $20
Shoes: Aldo $20

Book this Look- Florals and Stripes

I have never been one to be fashionably brave.  I always stick to the basics.  However, for those of you that teeter on the side of "hey why not let's give it a shot", check out this look posted on Atlantic-Pacific.  I found it to be incredibly inspiring.  Mixing standard stripes with colorful florals gives a fresh take to our otherwise ho hum solids.

2) ASOS $123
3) ASOS $92

5) ASOS $45

Kate Moss and her furrrr vest

Fall has barely poked it's annoying face down my way and I am already cold- this September/ October/ November trio has never been my favorite.  The wind, the rain, the darkness- argh!  But I guess all my woes can be obliterated with a fur vest?  It will keep me warm, impossibly stylish and when I feel lonely or miserable, I can just rub my face on it for some much needed coddling.  Kate Moss seems pretty happy with her vest- though she is not smiling I am sure she is happy.

1) Cheap- Michael Kors  at Zappos $130
2) Steep- Neiman Marcus $1,100

I love how Katharine pairs a neutral dress with such a bright accessory. They offset each other perfectly.

Mary Kate rocks the rawwrrr!

I am not a huge fan of prints- it feels like the item of clothing is yelling at me or something.  But Mary Kate somehow makes this work here- she pairs it with simple black and a hot like fire clutch- nice.

Oversized blazer a la Rihanna

I love oversized blazer.  I really do.  But I am pretty short so they don't look that good on me- I look like I am wearing my dad's blazer or something.  But if you have the frame for it, rock it.  Oh and for some odd reason, I can't seem to find any inexpensive oversized blazers- if anyone has any suggestions, please don't hesitate to post them!

Ashley Olsen loves her some leopard print scraves

I think she might be onto something... rocking a leopard scarf can rwarrrr up any old outfit.  Stick with basic colors and you might just be queen of the jungle for a day... yeah that was a lame pun but I simply could not resist.

Anyways seeing as there are a plethora of uber expensive and super cheap options for you, here are 2 which I think cover the price spectrum and look pretty darn cool!

Book This Look- Cameron Diaz

I am mos def jealous of how Cameron Diaz can make the simplest Stella McCartney sweater dress look so glamourous- arghghg.  Maybe it's the heels- yeah let's just say it's the heels :P

Apparently it is all about the cropped cargos and blazers according to Gwyneth...

I love how Gwyneth can pair these cargos with pumps at night or strappy flats for the day- all whilst rocking a blazer to keep the look put together.  Both  outfits look equally pimp but you know that I prefer the ones with the flats cuz, well you know, it's flats.

1) Cheap Tilly's $36
2) Steep  Balmain at My Theresa $1982

Book this Look- Jennifer Aniston

Oh Jennifer, you can make such a plain jane strapless dress and tan shoes look oh so effortlessly stylish.  The look is on the basic side, which is prob why I covet it so much.  But it works.  And it's awesome.

Cheap vs. Steep- Silky Cropped Pants

Yeah ok so I have not yet jumped onboard the silky cropped pants trend train yet but I just might do it... eventually.  I would rock the black ones as I do not think I have the legs for its lighter colored counterparts.  These silky cropped pants look great paired with some sky high heels, a light flowy top and for some reason-  a nice oversized clutch.  Happy shopping!

Jumpers under $50!

I love me a good jumper.  I have yet to purchase one but it is most def on my seemingly never0ending shopping list.  Jumpers eliminate at least one step in the "what to wear this morning" process.  Here are a few under $50 ones for our perusal.  Enjoy!

SJP's Nicholas Kirkwood pumps

You know what? I actually enjoyed the sequel to the first SATC movie.  I came in with very low expectations and left pleasantly surprised.  Maybe it was because of my hatred of the first installment, or maybe it was because Aidan looked so cute in that white button down shirt (*sigh... Aidan...) or maybe it was the fashion- yeah prob the fashion.  It was over the top and a bit circus-y but by golly, I have never seen couture on a camel look so good.  Oh and yeah, check out SJP's shoes below- how frikin hot are they?

Some pretty yellow strapless dresses

I have been on a mission for a yellow strapless dress since once of my closest friends announced she was getting married a year ago.  It was my choice of style and color for what would be a very special occasion. Bah- I failed terribly on this fashion mission. I could never seem to find the right shade, style or price point so I ended up wearing a nice purple strapless number.  Regardless, this dress is still on my mind and I found a few options whilst browsing the interweb- I may just purchase my one 'em.  Enjoy!

Vanessa rocking the coral for summer

I love a good flimsy jumper/ dress in a bright color, belted at the waist.  I think the loose-ness of the coral piece adds some casual-ness to what would otherwise be a dressy outfit.

Pretty Evening Brights!

It seems that black is no longer the go to color when it comes to dazzling it up for evening wear. Yay to the fact that we are now in a time where rocking the hot pink and fluorescent yellow is actually quite a propos and black and grey is just so yesterday.
