I’m still over here beating the sickness, but I have a feeling it’s close to running it’s course (crossing fingers). On another note, here is the second look Rizelle from Tour in Style created for me. You can never go wrong with a pair of flared jeans and faux fur. I can’t remember the last time I wore this bomber – another reason why someone else styling you with your own clothes is a great idea – you end up wearing an oldie but goodie!
I hope you had an amazing holiday and enjoyed some time off work – I know I did! One of the things I did on my days off was collaborate with another Columbus blogger, Rizelle from Tour in Style. She came up with the idea to style each other in three different looks using pieces from our closets. I’m always the one being asked for style advice, so someone else telling me what to wear sounded like an exciting experience. You never know what type of new outfit combinations can come out of your closet when someone else puts their eye on it. The first look she put together had a sophisticated glam vibe. This look could be worn to any type of special occasion whether it be for the office, date night or fancy dinner with friends. Having a go-to statement piece as well as timeless staples in your closet can easily help you put a look like this together.
Earrings will forever and always be the accessory I can’t live without. I wear them basically everyday. I have my go-to’s that I wear frequently and they tend to be on the daintier side. A pair I’ve recently added are these amazing starry sky ear jackets. The best part is that they’re under $20! I styled them with a holiday inspired look where I focused on combining different hues of pinks and reds. An embellished belt and the earrings added a festive touch.

The holidays are always a great time to dress all fancy shmancy, but, if you live in a state that gets snow, dressing fancy can be a little tricky. Let’s face it, heels aren’t the warmest and you risk slipping on ice and falling on your tush. The older I get, the more practical I start to dress – so, this year, I’m whipping out the flat moto booties for my holiday outfit. Moto booties may sound casual, but throw on a pair of glittery tights, sequin top, leather mini skirt and a bold lip and you’ve got a look that will be sure to impress.
How would you style moto booties for your holiday look?
Can you believe Christmas is only a few weeks away? Oh how I miss the days of childhood where I could pull off being in my pajamas all day. Now, I need to get dressed and presentable before I go to all of the Christmas festivities. Today I’m sharing an outfit idea that’s more on the traditional side [i.e. wearing the oh so festive colors of Christmas – red and green]. Don’t worry, even though the colors are traditional I’ve added a little edge ;). I styled my favorite red turtleneck with dark green lame pants, leather jacket and pumps.
What are your go-to colors you like to wear Christmas day?

This post was inspired by a lot of other bloggers I follow. Lately, and maybe because it’s fall, I’ve been seeing leopard print flats, heels and booties on almost everyone. Of course, there’s a reason why. Leopard print, in my opinion, is a print that will never go out of style, especially on shoes. Whether the shoe is fully covered in the print or only has a small touch of it, a leopard print shoe is a great closet staple to have. I styled my favorite leopard bootie with destroyed jeans, a fringe jacket and striped sweater.
How often do you shop vintage? I would shop vintage a ton back in the day but don’t so much anymore. It’s hard to come across vintage pieces that you know you’ll love and will hold up for more than just a year.
I found this vintage Chanel blazer about four years ago and to this day it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I’m not sure how old it is, but the style, fit and detail are so timeless that I don’t think it will ever leave my closet!
For this look, I styled the vintage blazer with a pair of the comfiest pants from VAEWARD, a sweater and pumps. You can never go wrong with a classic black and white look.
I hope you’re all enjoying the season change. One day it’s cold in Ohio, the next it’s 73 degrees. We’ll see if cooler fall temps keep up from here on out. One thing I love about fall are the earthy tones you see not only in nature, but in people’s wardrobes. Out of all the fall colors, there are ones imperative to have in your closet. What are those colors, you ask? Burgundy, olive and black are great colors to have in your wardrobe because they go with almost everything, and look good on almost everyone. Tobi has some gorgeous fall-colored tops in styles that you’ll be sure to get compliments on.
