Pick a bracelet and pair any combinations of these things with these 2 perfect items of clothing and you are ready to go. Also check out the Rag and Bone Moto Boot--gorgeous.:

Joes The Skinny in Deep Teal Jeans

Joes The Skinny Deep Teal Jeans

The orange bangle or the animal print looks so great with these jeans and the metallic flat is really pretty with the skinny leg that bunches a tiny bit below the ankle.  These jeans are SO comfortable, soft and flattering.  Not super low waisted so no hanky panky exposure/plummer butt. They are also gorgeous with motorcycle boots and booties.

Trapunto Placket Silk Blouse

Rag and Bone Astor Moto Boot

This is the absolute perfect silk blouse.  If you happen upon it at a discount buy both colors! I love this with everything. The neck is perfect for a pretty necklace and it hangs so perfectly on anyone's body. I have had clients of all different body types purchase this and it looks great on everyone! I had my tailor stitch up the plunge a bit because I am not a huge fan of decollate unless it is evening and more formal. No boobs during the day, please.

Great daytime holiday ensembles

This holiday season involves some brunches and luncheons that are a little bit dressy.  I want to wear something with a bit of sparkle but upper dress casual.  Here are some looks:

I love the black and cream with the bright green jean from 
J Crew. Super festive and a bit dressy with the right shoes.

Tory Burch tunic

Matchstick jean in garment-dyed denim

I love this outfit with these shoes:

Jayne calf hair T-strap ballet flats
J Crew Jayne calf hair T-strap ballet flats

or a little more low key:

Booker short buckle boots
J Crew booker short buckle boots
I love this Kate Spade blouse with the yellow cuff.  This would look great with these matchstick jeans in the purply-blue.

Matchstick jean in garment-dyed denim

These shoes will look great with this outfit and tie together the yellow.  I also LOVE the metallic toe which is very in style right now.

This top below looks amazing with red.  It is turquoise enough not to scream Santa is coming to town but festive and fabulous nonetheless!

Kate Spade Arden top

Toothpick jean in velvet
J crew toothpick jean in velvet

as for shoes...

Lula glitter ballet flats
J Crew Lula glitter ballet flats

Or these:

This spicy color brown looks amazing with the peacock colored shirt and the red velvet jeans.

I LOVE this Lauren Moffat Great Gatsby shirt below too:

This shirt would work with any style pant really and would look amazing with either of these boots: (hoarder confession: I have these in every color, black too)
Sam Edelman Petty boot

On a separate and important note: Tune in to GUYS WITH KIDS ON NBC at 8:30 tonight!!!! This is one of my closest friends husband's show! It is so cute and our kids live for it! It is the New Cosby Show!

holiday party dress

I tried on this dress at Zara today and love it! It is a perfect fit and is very flattering. I will wear black opaque tights since it is a teensy-bit short. This dress is not online right now but is at your local Zara. It is true to size and fabulous.  Looks like much more than the under $200 price tag. I think it needs a solid statement necklace and a cuff and nothing else.  No big earrings, just simple and small and you can skip the ring--the cuff carries the wrist and hand.

Here is how I will wear it:

Merona® Women's Premium Pattern Tights - Black Giraffe
Merona Patterned black giraffe tights

Since the dress is a bit short I am going for a fairly opaque tight and a low heeled bootie.  I love the metallic heel that is on trend right now.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Candy Turnlock Necklace

I love this Isabel Marant Cuff with it too:

This outfit is mostly black which I think is elegant, slimming and chic so I think it needs a pop of color and a statement necklace is perfect for the neckline of this dress.

I would wear this gorgeous Miu Miu clutch with the ensemble and it happens to be on Overstock right now for a steal. Who knew? Miu Miu and Overstock on the same planet???
