Go Long...

Lately, as I've been shopping (my favorite pastime), I've been noticing a lot of tunic tops. Some of them have a bit too much of a moo moo vibe for me, but many are just great looking with slim jeans or leggings. I guess it's that whole 70's influence that's permeating fashion right now - but I really like it when it's done like the examples shown. I especially like that many of these tops can double as short dresses or beach cover-ups. Nothing beats multi purpose fashion. So go ahead. Go long and try a tunic top......more

Celebrate Spring....

I can think of two great ways to celebrate the spring season. One - go to a neighbor's lamb roast, eat, drink and enjoy way too much. Two - wear pink and florals to embrace the season. Fortunately for me I was able to do both in one shot. Our neighbor's party was amazing and I felt outfitted to the nth degree in my pinks. I just absolutely adore this linen knit top by Rebecca Taylor. It's beautiful, light weight and completely perfect for the weather we've been having - and ditto for the pink jeans. So try it yourself. Celebrate spring in style then sit back and enjoy......more

Pink On Pink * Stylo 238

Pink on pink make sound like a bit of an awkward combination when it comes to pulling together an outfit, but I think that the pink on pink outfit that I created this past weekend came out really nice and well balanced.I had an event at home and I wanted to look professional but fashion at the same time, so I decided to wear some of my 9 to 5 clothes that I still have in my closet, by paring it in a way that would not look boring or too formal.So I combined a soft color like pale pink with a more brighter and eye-catching hue like fuchsia....more

Indigo Blues...

This spring denim and the color indigo seem to be cropping up all over the place. And I do mean all over the place. Denim dresses, skirts and tops as well as every flavor of accessory can be found in either denim or the color indigo. This makes tonal dressing (my favorite) super easy. Because I lean toward casual, comfortable dressing I've chosen to style my looks with a traditional jean. Not that I'm against wearing a denim skirt or dress - but I'll probably lean more in that direction as the weather gets warmer....more

Spring flowers...

At this time of year I adore watching everything start to bloom. The shrubs and trees in my yard are all putting on a spectacular show and it actually makes me want to follow suit. Certainly now is the time of year to go floral or go home. I love this top by Rebecca Taylor simply because it feels like spring. It's soft, flowing and floral without being at all garish in color. Not to mention that it looks great with jeans. The best part - it's light weight enough to go through the summer, and will also look terrific with white pants....more

Peasant tops...

The one thing I keep seeing in stores all over the place is peasant tops. They seem to come in all shapes and sizes and at the end of the day are just plain pretty (oxymoron?). Most of them have some kind of drawstring top and are either embroidered or printed. They are loose, flowy, comfortable and look terrific with both jeans and white pants. The reason I wrote this post is because there are just so many to choose from that I haven't bought one yet....more

In the pink...

Somehow at this time of year the color pink just feels right. Yes it's a fashion trend, but the color also mirrors so much of what's going on in nature that it  begs to be worn if only just to fit in. What you might not be able to see about the top I'm wearing (which I completely fell in love with - and is now on sale) is that the centers of the flowers are also pink. That, combined with having a sleeve length that's absolutely perfect for the New York up and down spring temperatures, sold me. So for the time being be happy, healthy and in the pink......more

Pep up your wardrobe...

So some of the most prevalent fashion trends I've noticed lately consist of ruffles, flounces and peplums. Some of the styles are really  pretty, and some seem to me to be a bit overdone. I think the most subtle way to wear this trend is by getting a top with a peplum. It adds a flowing detail to an otherwise ordinary knit top or blouse, and looks great with either slim jeans or a slim skirt. So now that the weather is finally warming up (yay) it's definitely time for a wardrobe refresher. My recommendation - pep it up......more
