PJ’s in Public






So, this jumpsuit may have officially just become my favorite article of clothing in my whole entire closet! Why, you ask. Because it is the chicest way to feel like you haven’t gotten out of your pajamas, of course! This has got to be the most comfortable outfit ever made and whoever invented the jumpsuit (or as Todd calls it “the onesie”) is a genius. The material is super loose and breathable, making this perfect for transitioning to Spring or even those cool Summer nights. This hot little number can be dressed down for a casual daytime look or dressed up for a snazzy date night. Today, I styled it to easily be taken from day to night. First off, turquoise + black = everything, these two colors are always amazing together. And with this outfit you cannot go wrong pairing it with a chunky statement necklace. So, this seven strand turquoise necklace and this black jumpsuit are a match made in heaven! Instead of wearing it with the expected black wedges, I put this with a pair of suede, tan booties. It just really gives a bit more edge to the outfit than a pair of matching black shoes. Grab a tan clutch (I prefer mine with the killer tassel) and you’re ready to take on the entire day! For example, this is the perfect Sunday Funday attire. It easily takes you from brunch to shopping to drinks to dinner to more drinks in style, all while feeling like you haven’t even gotten out of bed!

My Objection to Mr. Groundhog








So apparently Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Sunday, supposedly bringing us six more weeks of winter weather!! However, the 75 degree weather here in Charleston begs to differ. And I refuse to surrender another six weeks of my wardrobe to the cold temps! An easy way to transition to Spring {while only in the first week of February} is a pair of leather shorts. Sure, they’re shorts, but they’re LEATHER- for winter hellooo. These will become a staple in your closet during any season because they are SO versatile. They can be worn with basically any style top from a dressy blouse to a casual sweater and will look great dressed up with heels and booties or dressed down with flats and even a pair of Converse. The sweatshirt style top I paired with the leather shorts is very on trend as floral was huge on the Spring 2014 runways for designers like Elie Saab and Oscar de la Renta. Floral is also very easy to implement into your wardrobe. You can tone it down by wearing soft, romantic styles or make it super trendy by pairing a bold style with another pattern, such as stripes. I pulled in a bit of the pattern mixing with the black and white bracelet, but you can really take it to the next level with a black and white stripe skinny jean or skirt. With this look I decided to go right in the middle of safe and sassy and wear a funky floral with the leather shorts and then top it off with a contrasting color cognac bootie. Booties have been an essential in my Winter wardrobe and are not going anywhere anytime soon! This suede open-toed bootie is also a great piece to transition into Spring. Now, let’s just keep our fingers crossed the weather cooperates and we can prove that meteorologist groundhog wrong!
