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?

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.

How To | Wear a Party Dress

Source via: Pinterest via Courtney 

One my earlier posts showed a LBD and some fun accessories to go along with it. Imagine my excitement to see this beauty on Pinterest. This fun dress has a bit of a fuller skirt to it than the sheath style dress my creation had, but the necklace is very similar. This is as wonderful way to take a neutral shaded, party dress and add some subtle pizzazz to wake it up.

The necklace that I would pair with this dress would be Showstopper. Of course, the dress would need to be in another shade other than silver in order to really make this necklace pop. I would LOVE to see this color palette reversed so that the dress was this deep, rich plum and the jewelry sparkled like icing on the cake.

Could you see yourself in this fun dress? Is this more of a party dress or a dress you’d wear to an event, such as a wedding? Let me know!!

Colored Tights

Fall has definitely arrived in East Tennessee and I love it!!! The leaves are starting to turn colors which is so pretty to watch. I love that on my drive home, not only do I get to see the Smoky Mountains, but I get to watch as the tree lines dotted with golds, oranges and reds become more vibrant.

Today was going to be a chilly one. It was dreary and gloomy for most of the day. In fact, it was definitely an Eeyore kind of day. Oh bother! I wanted to dress stylish yet warm so here is what I came up with. I put on a fall inspired, rust-colored shirt and paired it with my denim skirt from New York and Company. I took a page from a fellow blogger, and finished off my outfit with rust colored tights to keep my legs warm and my tall chocolate brown boots.

What do you think? Do you like the look? Would you wear colored tights in your own daily wardrobe? If you do already, what’s your favorite look that you add them to?

I want to hear from you, so leave me some comment love and tell me about it!
