Now: earrings and necklace,, vest, ledonan,com, sweater,, designer skirt, for stores, boots,, bag,
Later: blazer,, earrings,, tee,, bag,, heels,

All these heavy winter clothes are staring to weigh us down. Those days of longing to curl up in a cozy sweater by the fire are gone. We’d prefer a breezy dress! However, since warm, sunny days are still in the distant future we’re focusing on how to wear our current wardrobes through that frightfully awkward period known as “transitional weather.” The key is investing in one or two gorgeous, statement pieces that not only lift your mood, but also provide a canvas to style both winter and spring outfits around. I mean, can we get a HELLO GORGEOUS to that skirt–just looking at it we feel better already. Pair it with neutrals for winter then step up your fashion game in spring by pairing it with an unexpected complimentary color (we promise purple and peach match, just look here!)

When we aren’t busy throwing on extra layers to brave the cold, we’re probably daydreaming about being somewhere tropical…or at least somewhere relatively warm. While bathing suit shopping might be jumping the gun a bit (especially since that gym membership resolution hasn’t kicked in yet…), sunglasses are totally fair game! Click through to shop some of our favorite shapes and styles.

Elizabeth and James Lafayette Sunglasses

Dramatic, retro-chic, and a bit out of the ordinary; we’d say this pair of Elizabeth and James shades accurately reflects its designers—Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

So, uh, you probably haven’t heard but it’s really cold outside. Skin-burning through your jeans, cold. Looking forward to wearing the coat that makes you look like a penguin-marshmallow crossbreed–that kind of cold. In an endeavor to keep our fashion wits about us while the Earth freezes over, we’ve assembled this lovely look complete with shearling accents, a cute and cozy hat, and a flattering (gasp!) puffer coat. Make sure to layer your Heattech or Cuddleduds underneath and good luck to you brave souls!

Wear it Now Wednesday: Subtle Sparkle

December 11, 2013 at 8:00 am , by

sweatshirt,, shirt,, skirt,, boots,, clutch and hat,

 Not all of like to shout with our sartorial selections but a little sparkle is every woman’s best friend. Dilemma? We think not. If you crave some shine but not the stares that often come with it, try sequins in a dark hue and keep your other pieces casual and fun. Use quirky accessories (like a patterned clutch and cute hat) to inject some personality into the look and keep on shining, darlings.

Wear it Now Wednesday: A Tale of Two Thanksgiving Looks

November 20, 2013 at 8:30 am , by

It took me quite a while to figure out what to post as my Turkey Day ensemble recommendations. Fact of the matter is, most of us will barely make it out of our pajamas for the duration of the Thanksgiving holiday. So, ambitious, multi-layered outfits seemed like a stretch. Instead, I pulled together two looks–one casual and one for you over-achievers. Both looks allow for the inevitable belly-expansion to come. You’ll note there are no fitted waists or body-conscious materials here. No no, my friends. As a staunch protector of your right to a long weekend in loungewear I’ve keep it loose and chic. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving, everyone, and it’s totally ok to get right back in those pjs after you eat.

Holiday at Home Outfit: hat, rag & bone, sunglasses,, scarf,, sweater dress,, bag,, boots,

Out and About Outfit: earrings and bracelet,, dress,, coat,, heels,, clutch,
