Breezeblocks…

Alt-J has a great sound – I love the electronic sound.  There is something about a band from the UK that seems to get at my inner being that makes me feel alive.  Their debut album is now out and you should check it out.

Do you have a think for music from the UK?

Much love,

Happy Halloween…

 

Happy Halloween, my loves!  Today’s accessory of choice can be anything that transforms you to that person you wish you could be – so if that is a sweet little witch or Katniss from The Hunger Games – enjoy and indulge in some sweets.  (We all wonder why we gain weight in the winter – I think it may have something to do with three months long of holidays that encourage indulgence  often times of sweets…so, enjoy with some moderation so it is still enjoyable!)

Did you celebrate Halloween this past weekend?  Are you tonight?  What did or are you dressing up as?

Much love,

B

Coming to a Close…

 

With almost every month there is something I love that makes the end of the month sad for me as it comes to a close.  This October has been fabulous.  October is one of my favorite months, as it is my birthday month after all and what girl doesn’t love celebrating with good friend and presents?!!  Plus, for me October is always a sense of a new beginning as a new year starts…which also comes along with new clothes.  What fashionista doesn’t enjoy some new pieces for birthday gifts?!

 

 

Do you have a favorite month?  Or are there things that make it hard for a month to come to a close for you?

Much love,

Seeing Dots…

 

Everywhere I look I am seeing dots – polka dots.  And I am loving it.  They are such a fun classic pattern.  They add texture to a simple look.  They add spunk to classy – even in a way that is safe enough for the office.  How can you not love these little guys?!!  From tights, to dresses, to blouses – or even on some shoes, polka dots are a classic pattern that goes through heights of trendiness and right now they are at a peak.

 

Are you seeing dots and embracing them with love?

Much love,

B

Celebration of Lives…

 

I am so excited that today I get to go have family time with some of my family.  They are not my biological family, but they certainly are my family and today we will be celebrating my sweet little nieces birthdays.  I am so excited to give them their gifts. They know they will be getting clothes – because Aunt B always gives them something stylish – and that was from the 4-year old herself!  Pretty much made my day to be her fashionista aunt.  Plus, I have so much fun picking out gifts – I am starting to wonder if gift giving is one of my love languages?!  I had so much fun that I already got their Christmas gifts, too…

Do all of you stylish fashionistas like to share the joy by gifting it to others on holidays and birthdays?

Much love,

B

Five Loves…

 

Oh my goodness.  I feel in love with this sweater the first moment I laid eyes on it.  How cute?!  I mean who doesn’t love some Big Time Rush?!!

 

I think I may have an addiction.  To Tootsie Pops.  Seriously – I love them so much – like a little too much.

 

I have been listening to Taylor’s new album, Red, so much this past week.  She has this amazing ability to write songs that every girl can relate to.  And that makes her music addicting.  I guess it is fun to have something that is far more pop culture than my standard, though some of her stuff is not so poppy – like check out Sad Beautiful Tragic.  Not so pop friendly.

 

One of my favorite parts of late fall in Minnesota is that it is peacoat season.  There is something so classic and lovely about anyone – men and women a like – in a peacoat.

 

This is pretty much sums up my favorite style, which I know is not new news – but I just had to share because she is lovely.

Do you ever find yourself relating to any T. Swift songs?  Which ones?

Much love,

B

All Flared Out…

 

Now, don’t get me wrong – I am a lover of skinnies.  However, recently when I am feeling a little more classy and less hipster I am totally drawn to my flares.  A perfect fitting, dark wash flare makes ANY woman look hott.  Seriously – they are so flattering.  Pair them with some heels and a top of your choice  – you will certainly be getting some compliments!

 

 

What is your take on flare jeans?  Do you have one style of jean that you stick to?  What is it?

Much love,

B

Rules…

If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, you may already know about Jayme Dee, as her song Rules is in the movie.  It is so calming.  The other night I just let it play on repeat and sit in the dark.  It drew me in and helped me let go and just be – so, I thought I would share the little gem with you today.

Do you ever listen to songs on repeat?  What is the latest song on repeat for you?

Much love,

B
