The brogue boot combo!

I love the brogue boot combination that is everywhere right now.  I love this pair from Urban Outfitters.  Don't be embarrassed; I walk in there all the time with our three kids and storm that place.  Push the tweens and the college kids aside and grab those acid washed jeans!!! 

Brogue boot and how to wear:

Maje Markdowns before they are gone...

When I shop with clients I usually put them in a few Maje pieces.  It is tres cher so we pick just a few. These serve as staples in a wardrobe and are often that touch that makes someone look chic and put together. Some of these staples are marked down at Nordstrom and will be gone in a flash! 

here are some favorites:
maje 'Dovette' Blazer
this is the best blazer ever--super lightweight!

Love the look but not the tag...a sweatshirt solution

I love the look of a stylish sweatshirt but am not about to spend hundreds of dollars on one. This look has been going strong since last year and was still present at the spring fashion shows.  Comfort is chic!!! Here is the look and then some stylish affordable options from Mango (this is my go-to for instant Euro style at a fair price). 


LOVE these sweatshirt looks--not so embellished but wearable and so cozy with high tops, brogues, ballet flats and skinny jeans/trousers:

Zip cotton sweatshirt
mango zip cotton sweatshirt

Contrast neck rhinestone sweatshirt
faux leather round neck sweatshirt

Zebra print cotton sweatshirt
Zebra sweatshirt

Floral print sweatshirt
floral sweatshirt

this one is my favorite!

Contrast trimming printed sweater

How to wear this sweatshirt look:
mango zip cotton sweatshirt
h and m stretch trousers 
(for $12.95 you can't go wrong--order a full size larger than you wear--tight!)
need supply tusk pendant 
need supply silver cuff 
Givenchy medium grey nightingale bag
mango glossed leather oxfords


Why we need a velvet High-top

High-tops are a must have in any well rounded wardrobe.  Many of us walk blocks to pick up our kids and need to wear something chic and comfortable on our feet.  These Superga velvet high-tops via Shopbop look fantastic with skinny jeans and something oversized on top.  They are chic, soft and literally you can walk miles in them. These are selling like hotcakes and some sizes are gone but fingers crossed they have yours!

Grey investment bags

Grey investment bags are great because you can wear them all year long.  Not as severe as black but not as fragile as a cream or beige.  A grey investment bag is a forever piece in your wardrobe.
