It was love at first sight and I had to have her. I call her Blue and she had me at hello!

It was one of those days when I didn't know what to wear.  I was feeling a little preppy so I decided on this fun varsity inspired cardigan. Of course, you all know that anytime I can add my favorite leopard heels to an outfit I do, so I did.  Casual and chic, check and check.

Style Tip:  On those days when you are in a style rut, start with a simple base and try adding a fun cardigan and/or shoes to what would otherwise be a boring outfit.

A New Take On An Old Classic......

I saw this image and immediately saved it to my inspiration file on my computer.  I know, I know I need to get with the Pinterest trend.  The distressing on this skirt had me at hello.  Its such a great new spin on an old classic style.  If anyone happens to know where this is from let me know.  Thanks!

My Favorite Combo....

This mix is hands down one of my favorite combos, navy and white stripes, red, all topped off with a splash of leopard.  I got this knit jacket from J Crew last weekend and LOVE IT!!  It's so easy and was the perfect top layer for this great Spring to Summer weather we have been having.

Style Tip:  Want to get a different look for your light weight double breasted styles?  Try flipping the top of each lapel back on itself and button, for a more casual blazer look.

Citron Revisited....

Last time I wore these pants in a post I cheated you all out of the full outfit, which I don't plan on doing again.  I got this top from the Gap over the weekend and I love simplicity of it, grey with white raised polka dots.  Not to mention they were running an additional 30% off sale which didn't hurt the decision to get this top.  I hope you all had a great weekend!!

I found this vest last week at Forever.  Its the perfect addition for any wardrobe.  The classic tuxedo styling all packaged up in a vest will be great for the hot summer months in Texas.  I wore it super casual today but it can easily be dressed up with black slacks, a black tank, and tons of chunky jewelry for date night or an evening on the town with girlfriends.

I love the inverted stripe colors on this dress.  It adds a cool style element that is unexpected but not so out of the box that its not wearable.  I was on the fence about what to add with this but belting my safari vest seemed to be the best choice for today's look.  Happy Wednesday everyone!

Another Unlikely Pair....

I have been into pattern mixing lately.  As you may have noticed from my outfit posts I don't own tons of printed/patterned items so it has definitely been a challenge but a fun one.  Today I thought that polka dots and leopard could be cool and I think it worked.  I topped it all off with a stripe cardigan for the cool morning we had and I was off.

Last week I talked about loving the idea of mixing floral with leopard print, here.  Well I decided to give it a whirl today.  Since spotting these ombre floral pants at H&M I knew they would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe and the perfect item to try this mix with.  It was important for me to keep my top relatively simple so that the eye was drawn to my pants and heels.  I love this combo and can't wait to come up with something completely different for these pants for the next outfit.

Pink Pleats....

I saw this skirt at Forever several weeks ago and it immediately made me think of Spring.   I had been contemplating what I would wear it with and finally decided on my go to v neck tee, denim jacket and topped it all off with my favorite leopard heels.  Happy Hump Day everyone!!!

Hail Mary....or Maybe Just Zara

Ms. Mary Katrantzou has taken the women's fashion world by storm with her uniquely printed goodies that seem to match but not match all at the same time.  If you have seen her collection you know that they are like works of wearable art, but are also very expensive.  When Top Shop did a collaboration with her it was exciting to know that I too could own one of her pieces.  Well not only did it sell out quickly but the retails were still a bit to high for my budget.  Well in walks Zara, not only is this dress reminiscent of her designs it seems to be super affordable too.  It hasn't been available for purchase so it has either sold out already online or hasn't been for sale just yet.  But if the retail is anything close to last seasons tulip dress collection this one is right up my alley.

Love On Top....

I don't usually post images of celebrities on my blog but I am a huge fan of Beyonce's and she released some personal photos today on tumblr for her anniversary.  I'm sure they are making the rounds on the web but I wanted to share a couple of my favorites.  I love all the candid snapshots of her life.  Makes her seem just a bit more normal like you and I.

I Love the Idea of......

Florals mixed with just a hint of leopard.  I love that one of the super trends is anything in floral!  Its super girlie and a long way from the boyfriend everything trend.  Although I still can't give up a nice pair of bf jeans.  I love the way that Olivia paired her floral pants with those leopard pumps, so chic.  I am definitely thinking about trying this mix soon.

Color Blocking....

I was sitting on the couch yesterday when I came up with this outfit.  Am I the only one that does that?  Constantly think about different ways to wear the items in your wardrobe?  Its come to a point where I have to take notes in my phone so I don't forget the combos that I come up with.  This outfit absolutely reminds me of everything spring.  How was everyone's weekend?  The weather in Dallas was as close to perfect as it could have been I was sad to see the weekend end.
