Trending: black on black on black

Not only is Black & White a big color combo trend right now, like I showed you in my style post last week, but so is that all black everything look. Here are some of my faves I’ve seen lately.

I think the key to an all black look is to have something interesting involved, since it’s just one color. Whether that be a leather pant/skirt, a fun peplum, a faux fur vest, a beanie or a fancy pair of heels. Different textures make it more exciting as well. My favorite part about this trend is that it’s classic, chic and edgy all at the same time. Don’t be scurrrd. Give it a try!

PJ Party: Girl’s Night In

That’s right. I’m staying in on this Friday night. Me and 2 of my best friends are going to cook dinner (well… I will supervise the cooking of the dinner), watch movies and chit chat the night away. We might even play some board games!

Ok, so we aren’t going to be looking as glamorous as these models! I think we’ll just stick with PJ’s tonight, haha.

This week has been pretty rough on me for some reason and I really want to get out of this weird mindset I’ve been in lately. Not sure what my problem is, but I’m hoping a little R&R with my besties will be the cure :)

What kinds of things do you do to try and get out of your funk? I’d love some tips.

Wish me luck! And happy weekend friends.

Black and White. I’ve been seeing this classic color combo all over the place lately. From A/W 2013 runways to H&M window displays. These are two of my most favorite colors to pair together. Keep it fun and interest with a touch of leather, like on the sleeves of my blazer. So cool.

Happy day before Friday :)

So I went a little crazy yesterday pinning photos of bar carts. I’m moving into a new place in about a month (EEK!) and am really jonesin’ for one of these lovely pieces. They have such a chic, vintage vibe to them, which is just what I’m going for in my new home.

And, the obsession with getting a cart escalated when I ordered this shaker and four glasses from the Target + Neiman Marcus collection (on MAJOR sale still!!). I can’t wait to put them atop my beautiful bar cart that I’m hoping to find this weekend at the Citywide Garage Sale here in Austin. Basically a giant flea market at the Palmer Events Center near downtown. If you’re in the area you should stop by. I hear the prices are great. OMG! I am beyond excited. I’m also gonna be keeping an eye out for a record player. Wish me luck :)

I know, I know. More leopard. I warned you though! There’s still plenty more where that came from, haha. I just couldn’t resist showing y’all these Docs… My leopard obsession started LONG ago. My mom got them for me when she went to London on vacation back in 2000 or 2001. I just rediscovered them over Thanksgiving break hiding in a closet at my grandparents house. SO ME. I love ’em. Great job Mom! Also, check out that Austin skyline. Such a beautiful view. I love this city :)

High Top Kicks

I’m pretty obsessed with high top sneakers right now. They can be super edgy with some high shine jeans, or really sweet if you pair them with a floral dress or skirt. I love how they can instantly make an outfit interesting. They are your statement piece with jeans and a plain white tee. I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately.

If you were thinking of trying out the whole wedged sneaker thing, but just couldn’t quite get into it (like me) make sure to give the flat version a try. It’s a little less risky, but still fashion forward.

And of course I had to get some for myself! So I opted for these from F21. They are super cute as well as affordable. Can’t wait to wear them with some black tights, a fitted dress, and my surplus jacket :)

Happy Thursday!

Happy 2013!

Happy New Year friends! I can’t believe it’s 2013. So weird to type that 3 instead of a 2, haha. 2012 was such a big year for me. So many changes: endings, new beginnings, starting this blog, moving to a new city, lots of happy times, a few sad times to. It’s crazy to look back and reflect at how much my life has changed since this time last year. And I can truly say, even though it’s going to be hard to beat how great 2012 was, that this year will to be even more amazing.

My resolution: to be more productive. Working from home can be tricky. Technically I’m being productive, but then at the same time there are days where I don’t get out of my PJs at all! So here’s to productivity and having the best year yet!

And good luck with your resolutions. You can do it :)

Outfit Inspiration: New Year’s Eve

YAY! Happy Friday friends! Here’s some NYE outfit inspiration for ya consisting mainly of (not in any particular order): sequins, sparkle, black tights, leopard print, faux fur, GOLD, & leather. That about sums up all my favorite trends from this season! Enjoy :)

NYE-GoldDress
HERE
This is the perfect party dress in a perfectly festive holiday color, GOLD!

NYE-FauxVestLeather
HERE
A big faux fur vest & leather pants will keep you warm, but lookin’ sexy at the same time.

NYE-LeatherLeopard
HERE
If you want to opt for a more comfy/casual look, but still feel cool, go for leather and leopard with a bad ass Chelsea boot.

NYE-PJKSequinShorts
HERE
Ummm, sequins AND leopard with black tights. Need to say more?!

NYE-Sequined-Cardi
HERE
A colorful sequined cardi is definitely a more fun, unexpected option. You’ll stand out among all the black ensembles!

NYE-StatementNecklace
HERE
I love the idea of an all black NYE look with a huge, sparkly statement necklace & a bright party clutch.

NYE-TAPESTRYDress
HERE
A great tapestry printed dress and a bright, bold coat would be another fun, unexpected, yet festive option.

NYE-WhiteBlazer
HERE
This look is very similar to what I’ll be wearing to ring in the New Year. A sparkly, fitted dress, white blazer, and black opaque tights with some high heeled booties. Only difference is that I’ll definitely be adding some sequins to my outfit. I LOVE sequins!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. It’s almost Christmas, so be merry :)
