St. Patricks day outfit

I love a kelly green t-shirt with “Kiss me, I’m drunk-ish” written on it as much as the next guy; however, the days of disposable holiday tee’s are becoming a thing of the past for me. If you’re looking to spruce up your St. Patricks day outfit look no further because I’m giving you some alternate color combos to wear on this festive holiday.

If you own the color chartreuse [a lime greenish yellow color] and/or a dark green/teal, you’re in luck! The look I’ve put together for my stylish St. Patricks day outfit is an older H&M top and suede jacket. Pairing the top and jacket with distressed jeans and floral pumps makes the outfit stylish, festive and ready for spring. It’s pretty frigid here in Ohio, so I’m hoping I can pull this look off in a few days [please get warmer, please get warmer].

Don’t have those colors in your closet? No worries! Any shade of green could work for the day. You can also mix up how you wear the green – it doesn’t need to be a top or jacket, but instead jewelry, shoes, makeup or hair accessories.

J.Crew inspired prints

Pinterest plays a big part when it comes to my outfit inspiration [you can follow my inspiration board here]. Brand lookbooks and blogger style allow me to think outside of the box when creating an outfit. J.Crew really inspires me to mix prints to give what seem like basic pieces in my closet an instant refresh.

For my J.Crew inspired look [minus the J.Crew] I styled a Gap denim jacket I’ve had since I was 13 [had an early growth spurt people], an H&M striped top, Forever21 jacket I’ve had for years, black slacks and Nine West loafers.

Off the shoulder + kick flares

I love it when local bloggers are able to get together and mingle [especially when food is involved]. The lovely Candace from Live Love and Read put together a night of bloggers+tacos at the Kitchen Columbus last night and of course I used the opportunity for a photo opp.

I have purchased a few items from Zara over the years but would always end up returning due to fit. This off the shoulder crop top is the first purchase I made that I actually kept. I love the tops unique print and style. I paired the top with Mango high waisted kick flare jeans and simple black sandals.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

It’s here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is up and running and you can snag some great fall items at a discounted price.

Even though my budget right now isn’t allowing for me to shop, I hope some of you will be able to put some of these beauties in your closet!

1) You know that sweater you live in every fall? This is it. You can style it with leggings, denim, pants, a skirt, and use it as a great layering piece with a shirt because the neckline is so wide.  

Treasure&Bond Stripe Pullover Sweater • $49.90

2) A good pair of suede pumps are key for fall. I love these specifically because the heel height isn’t too high. I don’t know about you guys, but 3″ is all I can handle nowadays 😉 My favorite color are the olive because it’s such a versatile color. The stud detail on the back of the shoes is also a nice touch.

3) I have yet to pull the trigger on a pair of boyfriend jeans, but this fall might be the year I get a pair! The raw cuffed edge of these Rag & Bone jeans [and the color] are what sold me on keeping my eye on them for a future purchase!

4) Vests, vests, vests. I cannot get enough of them. This season I would love to add one to my collection that acts more like a coat. You can layer suede and leather jackets under it and big chunky sweaters. You can even wear it as a dress if your heart desires!

rag & bone ‘Faye’ Longline Double Breasted Wool Blend Vest • Rag & Bone • $384.90

5) Speaking of jackets, this faux leather one speaks for itself [that price tho – can’t beat it]

BLANKNYC ‘Easy Rider’ Faux Leather Moto Jacket • Blank NYC • $64.90

6) Last but not least, the bootie. This is the second style of shoe I have most in my closet because they can go through all seasons, are comfortable, and all around perfect.

Rowe boutique fashion show

When the lovely ladies from local boutique Rowe asked me to be in their annual fashion show I was just too smitten! The fashion show is not only a great way to view the latest fall fashion from the boutique, but part of the proceeds from ticket sales go to supporting the Jack Roth Fund, an amazing organization that helps raise money for lung cancer research.

The outfit they styled me in was a gorgeous [and comfortable] wool coat, a gray graphic tank, girlfriend jeans and an ear jacket. The makeup artist was amazing and needless to say I am not use to having my eye brows like this, but I dug it!

It was my first time walking down a runway but I decided to just go with the flow. The ladies also asked me to take a selfie mid runway, so I went for it! Sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone and this was by far one for me! I honestly don’t even remember going down the runway because it happened so fast and there were so many lights!

Needless to say, I’ll so do it again.
