Looks for a White T-Shirt

Who doesn’t have a plain white t-shirt that they like to wear? I know I have several. Scoop neck, v-neck, boat neck…it doesn’t matter the neckline. I rock them all! I like wearing them under colorful shrugs and cardigans or by themselves with colorful denim (which is totally on trend right now.) Not sure how to wear this trend? This is a perfect example of how to embrace colored denim for yourself.

Here are some pics of how jewelry can change the look of a simple tee simply by changing it up.

Fall Chic

I know that I say this a lot on this blog, but I am in love with this look. I love everything about it from the gorgeous, rich color of the burnt orange handbag to the dark wash jeans to the Mink cocktail ring that I’ve had a crush on for a while now. I could totally see this look out everywhere. You could wear this grocery shopping, on a lunch date with a girl friend or catching a movie with your main squeeze. I totally approve of this look!

What do you think? What is your favorite part about it? I’d love to hear what you think.

Fashion Friday | Contemporary

Starting with my new blog format I’ve decided that the post a day challenge last year was something that I just couldn’t keep up with consistently. So, this year, I’m going to do the post a week challenge instead. There might be some weeks that I’ll post more than just once, but at least this way, I can be sure that I hit that goal and not run out of fun things to share with everyone. Having said that, I’m going to start Fashion Fridays. That’s when I’ll share something fun from the fashion world. It may be celebrity fashion or maybe a recreation of an outfit with my fun jewelry line accessories.

Today, I’m staring this awesome new bangle bracelet from our new Spring Jewelry Collection. It’s called Contemporary. I LOVE IT!!! I have smaller wrists but when I saw this, I knew I was buying it. Contemporary is a hinged bangle and it is very comfortable to wear too.

The shiny silver finish is nice and can be worn with a more casual outfit to run errands on the weekend, or even dressed up and worn to the office. Either way that you decide to wear it will work and that’s what I love most about this jewelry.

What do you think of Contemporary?

New kicks

 

So, as you know, I’ve started a healthier lifestyle since ringing in 2012. I’ve been eating better, taking boot camp classes and keeping a food log. So far, my weight number has not changed too awful much, but my clothes are fitting a whole lot better and I’ll take that any day!!

To go along with those changes here are some other changes I’ve made since January 1st:

-continuing on my no diet coke resolution from last year,

-drinking only water, tea or coffee (in the morning only),

-walking my dog more,

-subscribing to better magazines like Clean Eating, to promote better food choices,

-cleaned out my pantry of all the junk food,

-incorporated more fruits and veggies into my diet.

So, to keep up my “new year, new me motto,” I decided that 6 years was long enough to go without a new pair of tennis shoes. As you can see, I didn’t hold back and went bold and bought these from Under Armour. It is a bit of an adjustment to see such bright shoe laces at 4:30am when I get up to go to boot camp, but they are so incredibly comfortable. I haven’t tried running in them, but I’m curious to see how they compare to my last pair of running shoes.

What kind of workout/running/tennis/cross training shoes do you like best?

So, I know that Sara had on a long-sleeved shirt tonight during her performance, so I took some liberties with this corset top, but I really like how it turned out. I love the basic yet stylish look of this outfit. Tuxedo pants, great heels and pops of color with makeup, nail color and even accessories is a sure fired way to look put together and polished. What do you think? I need to be invited to an event soon so I can recreate this look. This definitely has style and sass!

CMA Awards | 2011 Predictions

Tonight is the night! It’s time for the 45th Annual CMA Awards. Last year you may remember, we saw several gown changes from Carrie Underwood, cuff bracelets courtesy of Miranda Lambert (now Shelton), and some really fun, chandelier style earrings from Jennifer Nettles.

Tonight, I would expect to see lots more of the same. We will see fun, festive, sparkly dresses along with lots of metallics both in clothing and jewelry, stackable bracelets and cocktail rings. We’ll see floor length gowns and we’ll see some fun, shorter party dresses too. Either way, it will be a fun time to tune in and check it all out.

Who do you love to see all dressed up at the awards show? I hear Faith Hill is debuting a new single and that it’s been since, I think, 2006 since she has appeared at the CMA’s. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but I love to see the veterans come out to things like this. George Strait, Reba, Sara Evans, Faith Hill and Kenny Chesney certainly helped to shape the way we view country music today.
