What to Wear for a Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot

Valentine's Day photo shoot

Hi, my name is Kristin and I'm absolutely terrible at getting holiday cards out in time. I had good intentions to make it happen last year, I really did. But, as per usual, life got in the way and I just didn't quite get my act together in time to make holiday cards happen. That being said, I didn't want to pass up on sending cards out completely. We received some lovely holiday cards, after all, and I definitely wanted to return the favor to our loved ones. So, I had a thought...

Taking On Camo

Camo Jeans

Sometimes a girl just needs to feel tough. I would argue now more than ever. I'm certainly feeling the increasing need to channel my inner strength to take on the world. Sometimes that comes in the form of a little camo in my daily wardrobe. I've always loved incorporating camo in fun unexpected ways. I have a great camo purse from C Wonder that always gets noticed, and a pair of very preppy camo loafers from J. Crew. So when I spied these James camo jeans at a boutique in Orlando, I was pretty in love...

Grey Sweater Dress

Grey Sweater Dress

I was in Florida last week and ya'll things got chilly! No fair right?! I mean I did miss the snow that was falling in Maryland, but I was so so sad when the Florida temperatures dipped into the 50's. Luckily I had packed this grey sweater dress as an easy back-up plan that definitely came in handy. A soft grey sweater dress like this is the perfect winter weather staple. I also had packed some glitzy sandals in hopes that the weather would be warmer. Needing to quickly pivot, I styled it with black tights...

So, it's officially my least favorite time of the year. You know that icky winter period after Christmas otherwise know as January. Bwah! As I've mentioned in the past I just love holidays that allow me to bake, decorate and dress for them and until February arrives with Valentine's Day, there isn't much of that going on. Actually, I may be doing a little pre-Valentine's Day celebrating. There are too many heart day treats calling my name, haha! But if you aren't quite ready to move onto another holiday yet, that doesn't mean you can't...

How to Wear a Leather Jacket with a Dress

RedDress Horiz (1)

If you've seen my outfits a time or two before, you've probably noticed that I like to play around with both girly and edgy pieces. I love a great pair of moto boots and much as I do a glamorous gown. And that's why I'm such a big fan of pairing flirty, feminine dresses with more masculine jackets. There is something about putting those fashion contradictions together that just works. So, I knew as soon as I picked up a floaty little frock on a recent vacation that it would go perfectly with my go-to...

So, I thought I would share a few of my favorite Valentine's Day treats for those of you who are jonesin' for a little early celebrating too! You can bet my family can expect some pre Valentine's Day treats and surprises in the...

Texas Inspired Style

Texas 6

Many moons ago I lived in Houston, Texas. My longhorn state stay was only for a couple of years, so while it was, admittedly, short, I did meet some incredible people there, including three of my bridesmaids. The people of Texas definitely left an imprint on me as did the fashion. I've always had a country lovin' side, hence 2/3 of the concerts I've been to in my life have been country artists, so it was no real surprise when I fell further in love with country style influences after living in Texas. I'm not...

Styling A Fringed Blanket Cape

Fringed Blanket Cape

Who's ready to keep warm and still look adorbs?! This fringed blanket cape is a great way to stay warm when temps get chilly and I love a blanket cape like this for so many reasons. In both the fall and spring in Maryland, they are great for casual weekend wear that has a chic boho vibe. We've also been having that nice sunny day here and there in the 60's and I get so excited to take off my heavy coat and leave the house looking cozy chic. For Kristin in Florida, she can wear...

Our Favorite Looks from 2016

statement scarf

I know we've embraced the new year after a somewhat bumpy 2016, but there a few things from last year that still make us smile! Let's talk fashion. That always perks me up. Haha! When I look back on the outfits we shared last year, what struck me is how timeless they were. Sure, we love a good trend around here, but, more often than not, our goal is to incorporate trends in a subtle way so the ensembles can be worn time and time again. And being that I was in a nostalgic kinda mood,...
