It’s that Time of Year…

football

 

I sent this to my bou to warn him – because it is a little too true of me watching football.  Eep – so excited!  Good thing is, he loves football, too – now to get us to cheer for the same team!

Are you a football fan?  What is your favorite team to cheer for?

Much love,

Five Loves…

love1

 

A good hat and classic black – simple and stunning.  Just what I need to throw on after a long week like this one – oh wait, I am going to a wedding.  Guess this will be tomorrow’s look inspiration.

love2

 

That is an arm party I love.  And pair it with dark nails, gold rings, and tortoise shell glasses – now I am swooning.

love3

 

A girl’s face when putting on mascara is always so fabulous.  I love it – it is a serious deal and it is worth every moment spent getting it just right.

love4

 

Oh what I would give to wear casual layers like this again – soon enough the heat will depart and you will find me dressed like this, when I am not at the office of course.

love5

 

Put your dancing shoes and dress on we are heading to the chapel {again} for another wedding of dear friends.

What are you loving in this blistering heat?

Much love,

Summertime Prep…

prep1

 

Who says plaid is only for the cold months.  It can totally be paired with bright colors to turn that lumberjack plaid into summertime prep.  Get one of the light weight plaid shirts and tuck it into your skirt, pair with a statement necklace and you have a fun fabulous look for summer.  We are all wanting fall fashion, but weather is not ready to say goodbye to summer – so we adapt and make it work.

How do you make summertime prep work for your style?

Saints of Valory…

The perfect song to end the summer is Neon Eyes by Saints of Valory.  The hot humid nights of August are better with windows rolled down and good tunes blasting.  This song has totally made my recent playlist.  They are on tour right now, but sadly get close but not all the way up to Minneapolis anytime soon.

What are your end of summer songs you are loving?

Much love,

Clutches, Satchels and Purses, Oh My…

clutch1

 

I am a firm believer that a gal can never have too many bags.  The options are endless and each one is so fabulous in its own way.  Recently I feel like I have been seeing bags of all sorts that have me swooning – from clutches to full on satchels.  It seems like maybe it is time to start adding to my collection – I actually am really excited to see what I may find over in Thailand.  I would love to add some intricate colorful details to my bag collection.  Though, a classic leather purse always is my weakness.

Do you have a favorite style of purse?  Do you have a lot of purses?  How often do you switch yours up?

I’m Melting…

melt1

 

Holy buckets – apparently summer decided to show up finally.  And let me tell you it is hot and sticky – basically it is a constant state of feeling like I am melting.  It is certainly not the weather that inspires wanting to layer on garments.  So, what does one wear when it is blistering hot?!!  I love turning to flowy materials to allow for some sort of breeze and not have things clinging to your body.  I also like mixing in more non-traditional pieces like a light tee-shirt with a pencil skirt to lighten the office attire.

What is your style when you feel like you are melting?  Has summer hit you with a second heat wave all of a sudden?

Falling for {Emerald Green}…

emerald1

Back in January emerald green was declared the it color of 2013 by Pantone, and it has held up to be true.  This fall is certainly no different, as it seems to be every where for fall trends and I am thrilled about it.  This rich color adds a bright glow to all skin tones and hair colors.  It is a great way to keep a little color touch in you fall fashion.  Emerald green looks fabulous in office style fashion, so I know I am excited that I have some color to keep in my style this fall – now to pick the right pieces…

Real Men…

I am loving how much people are getting behind supporting the end of the sex trade.  It needs to end.  I think this issue has been on my mind even more as of late because I will be in thailand in a month and a half and I know I am going to see it – breaks my heart.  There has to be hope for these little girls.  Thankfully there are groups like Destiny Rescue  to just name one, that we can support to help bring an end to this tragic epidemic. 

Five Loves…

love1

 

A casual tee paired with a blazer and statement necklace – love this combination.

love2

 

Hott.  These shoes are simply sexy – the color and print combination.  The lines.  Together they make the perfect heel.

love3

 

I’m totally crushing on leopard print as of late.  I pretty much need this clutch.

love4

 

These studs are stunning.  I would like all three sets in my ears, please.

love5

 

Simple, but the perfect look for a Saturday stroll on a humid day in the city – aka, welcome to August.

How do you handle styling yourself in the hot humid month of August?!!

Much love,

B
