INSPIRATIONS OF STYLE

MUSTARD

 

I will admit I have never been the biggest fan of the color mustard but this season it is EVERYWHERE!  I think the reason why I actually want to add a few staples to my closet in this color is because of the style of the pieces and how this color really makes you embrace Fall. I think people shy away from mustard because they don’t know what colors to pair with it besides your basic black and white. In my opinion mustard works well with cranberry, certain teals and grays….luckily for us all those colors are a must have too this season!

Want to try to mix in some mustard ??!! Check out these great options:

 Riviera Blouse, Banana Republic $69.50

 Marisa Straight Leg Corduroys, LOFT $59.90

 Edie Purse, J. Crew $238

Flared Shirk , H&M $49.95

Rib-Knit Sweater, H&M $49.95

Women’s Yellow Round Mop Dial Watch, ANNE KLEIN $75

Paraty Medium Tote, Chloe $1895

Leni Silk Dress, Rebecca Minkoff $388

Merino Wool Crewneck Sweater, Burberry Brit $275

Akkin Patent Mary Jane Pumps, Manolo Blahnik $735

Summer Blouses

 

As the summer days approach us I think it is best to toss on a lightweight blouse, flirty skirt and great sandals … you look polished and fresh but still comfortable in the heat! I have been a fan of cardigans the last few years and now I am expanding into summer blouses. The reason I stayed away in the past was that they don’t always give much shape and I don’t want to look sloppy or baggy.  Well ladies if you’re like me and like a little shape & style to your summer shirts here are some items to pick up the next time you hit the mall!

Twenty Dollar Trendy March 2012

I love when Spring it just around the corner and color comes back into the mall and on us again! I know every girl can’t get enough of black, white & gray but after a dreary winter we need to cheer up & spruce up our wardrobe! I am loving the bold colors for this spring & summer but sometimes it is just too harsh without a pattern. This H&M dress for under $20 bucks is a great find & can easily transition you in style thru the spring and early summer with the 3/4 sleeves. Orange can be a hard color for many to wear, especially work appropriate without looking like Halloween…. this paisley pattern is the perfect way to bring you into spring!

 CLICK HERE: Orange Paisley dress, H&M $19.95

Maybe you are looking for a cute shoe to lighten up your outfit …. for less than twenty dollars you can have comfy cute pastel coral flats with the very fashionable ankle strap perfect for the office or weekend from Forever 21.

CLICK HERE: Linen Ankle Strap Flats, Forever 21 $19.80

 

Sometimes you just need a new clutch …wallet by day & purse by night. I love this orange croco pattern from Target.

CLICK HERE: Merona Orange Croco Clutch, Target $14.99

I know a great piece of jewelry can complete an outfit but spending too much on costume jewels doesn’t seem to always be the best way to stretch your dollar … I found a great pair of earrings from Bloomingdales for $20 … I love these so much I don’t know which color is better!?! Coral or Blue!!!! For $20 buy them both!!

CLICK HERE: Aqua Blue Crystal Button Studs, Bloomingdales $20

 

Ready… Set… Shop!

Copy Kate: “Reiss Shola Dress”

Style Icon:

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Copy Kate’s Reiss Shola Dress for Less !!!

 

Now it is America’s turn thru Banana Republic to wear a more affordable version of the Reiss “Shola” dress Kate wore after returning home from her honeymoon to meet with President Obama and the First Lady.  I have to admit I think Reiss’s version looks more expensive and very tailored but it should for $340. Banana Republic made a more afforable version at $130 available in black & almond but it does not have the bandage detail like the original Reiss dress.

CLICK HERE:  Banana Republic Kate Sheath, $130 

 

Of the two which would you rather wear?!?!
