I love the line BLK DNM. It was created by Swedish designer Johan Lindeberg. He has designed for Diesel, J. Lindeberg and William Rast. The cuts are unique, the fabrics soft and comfortable.  Gorgeous! Here are some looks:

I think that these black leather pants are my favorite this season:

BLK DNM Biker Stretch Leather Pant

I think this look is so wearable.  This is what I like to wear all the time.  I love the military green with the grey/black denim.

How to wear yellow pants

I love the line Maje that a friend told me about. It is all gorgeous and I love the interesting color combinations. I love yellow pants. Paired with purple it looks regal, not to mention it is a shout out to our LA Lakers(my boys would appreciate this combination).

Here are some great tops and shoes. Missing ingredient: Yellow pants!

Friday Favorites

These are some of my favorite items this week. I am loving French Connection right now. They are super French chic at a great price. The materials feel luxurious and the cuts are flattering. I also love La Redoute. It is the French version of Kohls--much more chic and they deliver to your door with free delivery over about $150.

Club Monaco also has great things now.  I love this top with these bottoms:

Cigarette Trousers with Permanent Pleats
Long-Sleeved Sweater with Leather-Look Collar

I am loving this dress from La Redoute with a cashmere winter white cardigan and animal print booties:

Fitted Sleeveless Dress in Leather and Milano Knit

Here is the cardigan:

Graphic Print Pants

I love the look of graphic print pants.  They make any ensemble look interesting.  Here is the look:

This Sparkle & Fade sleeveless blouse is very sheer and looks great under the J Crew Tippi sweater (which comes in every color imaginable) that hits perfectly on the hip.  These shoes are all super comfortable and a fair price.  This Valentino bag is an investment piece that you will wear and wear and then pass to your daughter when she will appreciate it!

booties with ankle jeans

I have been wondering how to wear my booties with denim because most of my jeans are more ankle length. Here is an outfit idea for your heeled booties and ankle jeans. ps--I don't think flat ankle booties look as good with ankle length pants. I think opt for a cigarette jean that scrunches a bit at the top of your boot, or a really skinny taper that scrunches or lays flat into the boot. I know the sock look is in but I think for the 99 it is tough to pull off.

Here are three navy jacket options. I love the Sanctuary navy leather jacket. It is rare to find real leather, great cut, fair price. The Parker jacket is more date night. LOVE!!!

Pretty in Pink

Sometimes I want to wear pink. It feels delicate and feminine. When I was a little girl I would go through phases where unless it was pink, I wasn't wearing it. Thankfully, I grew out of that and I don't wear a lot of pink now. I read Pinkalicious to my daughter Ruby tonight and it ignited the flame. I love this look together; the J Crew pink gingham fitted shirt, untucked with the sweater and the perfect ankle length denim. I like the Alexander Wang grey bag with rose gold detail and the rose gold bracelet that gives it a bit of edge. I am obsessed with the Del Toro shoes. Something about pink makes me happy. I think this is the perfect daytime outfit for when you want to get your pink on.

Here are some more winning looks involving pink: Pink and snake are a great combination:

I love this rose gold monogram necklace from Pottery Barn Teen that looks gorgeous with any pink ensemble. It is sterling so the quality should be solid--no green neck after a shower...

Notable Belgian fashion

When I was a teenager I lived in Belgium for high school. I went to the International School of Brussels. I love all things Belgian. Especially Belgian design and fashion. I love Kid Vanilla, Marc Cain and Oliver Theyskens. Les Belges sont chics! I like the graphics. C'est cool.
