Calling All Aspiring Stylists......

Happy Sunday everyone, tomorrow starts a new work week and I have some very exciting news to share.  If any of you have ever dreamed of becoming a stylist, then please continue reading.   If you live in the Dallas area, this Friday September 19th Luke and Lauren the founders of School of Style will be here to teach the ins and outs of getting and maintaining a career as a stylist.    For a fraction of the cost that it would take to get a 4 year degree,  you will learn how to build a resume specific for styling jobs, how to find a mentor, and how to keep that dream job once you have landed it.   This class is normally only offered in New York and LA so it is a special treat that they will be here to drop some of their knowledge on us!  I can't wait to go to attend this class and I hope to see some of you there.

I absolutely love this kimono style jacket.  I paired it with this berry colored dress and this necklace that I swear I have probably owned for about 5 years and have never worn.  I supposed I was waiting for the perfect outfit and I think I found the one.  I can't wait to throw this kimono jacket, on top of ripped denim and chucks!  I hope everyone had a great weekend, on to a new week,  let's go!!

I absolutely love this new fringe jacket from Apricot Lane.  The best part absolutely has to be the detail on the back.  Overall its quite versatile and I can't wait to wear it more as it cools off in Texas.   I'm thinking skinny denim, a white tank, and killer heels.  I definitely have a pair in mind.  Until it cools off this is the look for now.  :)  I hope you all had a great weekend, on to a new week, let's go!

Weekend Wear.....

I love the very bold cobalt blue that is the base color of this shirt.  It is the perfect compliment to the white and pink diamond print.  I wore this outfit to run a few errands this past weekend and I love the versatility of this blouse.  Not only did it go well with my very favorite pair of white denim shorts but could also just have easily been dressed up with a fitted knit black skirt or even white pants and your favorite strappy heels.  I hope you all had a great weekend, on to a new week let's go!

That Print Again.....

I loved this J crew print so much last seen here that I bought the dress and skirt.  There is just something about the exploded floral pattern and overall color combo that I just LOVE!!!  This time I still kept it pretty simple with fun shoes and a simple bangle.  I also belted it to give it slightly more shape but the dress also looks great without it.  I wore this dress to church and after an hour and 45 minutes of sitting these deep wrinkles happened....UGH!!!!  I promise those weren't there when I left my house.  :)

I love that wrapped skirt styles are slowly coming back in.  I found this skirt on a recent trip into Forever and loved that what could normally be a more mature looking style in the longer version was instantly made more trendy and youthful as a mini.  As I was shooting this time I started to transition the outfit from a somewhat more serious look to a relaxed ready for the weekend look.  I wish I had a couple extra pairs of shoes to make each look a bit more different.

Style Tip:  The same outfit can very easily be transformed into several different looks with a simple shoe and outfit styling change.  The first look I would have put a great pair of heeled sandals on with similar to the ones in my last outfit post, here.  The 2nd look I would keep as is from head to toe.  The last I would have paired with some black chucks to bring the look down to be even more casual.
