Motorcycle Boots & Smokey Eyes

I was really excited to pick up these boots at Mango recently (and on sale!) Even though they aren't my usual style I especially like that they are kinda rough but still refined. To over compensate I did a silver smokey eye and wore a pink lipstick. As the winter weather settles in even deeper I'm hoping to get a lot of wear out of them. I have to admit I'm pretty excited to come up with creative ways to wear this shoe considering most of my closet is made to go with heels or feminine flats! :) It'll be fun!

Boots: Mango - Leather Biker Boots
Denim Jacket: J Crew (old)

Not Mellow Yellow!

Please indulge me for a minute while I share way too many photos of one of the 'happiest' outfits ever. Do you ever have that, where an outfit just makes you happy? That's what this one was for me. Something about the yellow and blue just made me giddy! I had a lot of fun all day wearing these crazy  patterned pants, so much so that I had to throw on the funny mustache neon yellow necklace :) 

Hope these pictures make you happy but don't say I didn't warn you. 
{Warning: Lots of pictures ahead. Might make you very happy!} 

Thanks for making it down to the end :) Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

Can't Get Enough!

Of leopard that is! My new favorite find are these leopard print booties from Nine West. Really the only question I'm asking myself these days is "how often can I repeat these?" 

Here's hoping your answer is "often!" :)

The Seven Series!

--  Little glimpses from my week --

This week felt like it flew by so I'm looking forward to the weekend and a chance to take a breather and plan for the coming week. (Yes, I'm strange like that, planning is a de-stresser for me!) 

What plans do you have for the weekend? 

After being a life long Clinique skin care lover, I'm trying something new. Winter always plays havoc on my skin so I'm looking forward to some serious moisturizing from this set, plus they were offering a free bag with purchase :) Haha! 
Tricks Tools of the Trade - I've been attempting new dos this week :)
I LOVE nail polish! It's one of the easiest ways to look put together and feel amazing! 
So excited for my recent boot purchase! Not my typical style but I love them! 
Not that you were wondering but leopard obsession is still going strong :) Love these whimsical necklaces! 
The bag from my new boots :) Mango's been getting a lot of love from me recently! 

A few things lying around the house & a new pair of sunglasses 
Have a great weekend!!

Winter White

 I love when old can become new again. This Banana Republic jacket is several years old and I just never found the right way to wear it (it still had the tags when I pulled it out!) When I recently purchased this fun owl scarf it gave me the jolt of inspiration I was looking for to pair these pieces and create a wintery white outfit!

Jacket: Banana Republic old (similar
Blouse: Mango (similar
Pants: Topshop (similar
Shoes: Enzo Angiolini peep toe
Scarf, Sunglasses, Clutch: Local boutique 
Nail Polish: Essie Fifth Ave. 
Rings: Tiffany (here & here)

Style Tip: 
When styling a classic color combo like black and white, feel free to layer on accessories to add visual interest. Because the colors are pretty basic you can afford to add some complication to the look through various textures and elements (ie: the scarf, leathery clutch, silver jewelry, etc..) (As opposed to this look, where I kept the accessories and textures subtle due to the bright color combo!)
