This cute little top came from Forever21. It can be worn with jeans for more of a low-key look, or paired with a sharp necklace, heels and skinnies for a cute night out! My look here (and my styles in general) are more “going out” than laid back. I like feeling pretty and girly, and I looove heels!! Add a cute printed or patterned clutch to this look and I am ready to go!

Love the loose knit and marled combination of this sweater! I got this a few years ago from forever 21, where some true gems can really be found as long as you are patient and willing to go digging! I just grabbed a really cute multi-fabric sweater from TJMaxx today too, that looks a little similar to this one. This fabric has little neps in it of other colors — grey, black and white, that usually is called “marled”. It really gives the piece a lot more life. Just have to be careful of pulling with the loose knit process, but def trending this fall!

I have to say that the color combination of black and white with a pop color is one of my favorite looks, (see post from here and here as well). This open front type of cardigan is called a “cocoon cardigan”. The style is very cute and trendy, but I have to give a tip to anyone wearing one. I had a hard time finding tops to wear underneath this cardi, until I realized what the problem with it actually was. I find that when I wear a looser fitting shirt underneath this type of cardigan, it tends to make me look a lot wider and heavier than I really am. Plus, with this one, it doesn’t help that it has stripes too! So with that said, if you do decide to sport this style, please make sure you are wearing something a little more fitted underneath, so it will keep you looking slim. Hope this little note will help someone rocking this style! Thanks for reading! 🙂

’47 Brand Fashion Show, MLB Night Game

I had a big role in our company’s “MLB Night Game” Fashion show held back in May. We flew out to Chicago for a long weekend and finally were able to attend the event we had worked so hard on for so many weeks. We had to do all of the planning without meeting any of the models, seeing how the clothing fit them, and without seeing the venue. Tough to create a great event without being able to see so many different aspects of it all! The show went off flawless, the models were great, the product was welcomed with excitement and cheering, and the night was a homerun (pun intended)! I am so happy and excited to share some of the work I do at my day job! Please click on the photo above to watch the video, and see photo’s below for a few other shots from the night!

This is one of my favorite dresses, It is a real feel good piece. Maxi dresses are very popular, and have been for a few years. I had a work trip in Chicago earlier this Spring, and I couldn’t believe how many women around the city were so effortlessly rocking their maxi’s. It had to have been the most worn item of clothing walking around that city! It made me think I need to step up my game and get a few more nice maxi dress this summer. It is a very simple outfit that is always trendy. Pair your maxi with flats, or heels to lengthen your legs, and you are ready!

The trend of mixing prints is huge right now. I have not yet been able to master the look of mixing prints with two pieces, but the style can work with a dress like this one (and it is effortless) I got this dress last year really cheap from JCPenney, and I thought it was so ugly that it was cute… I actually refer to it as my “ugly dress”! With back to school shopping just around the corner, it may be a good trend to learn towards if you think you are daring enough to pull it off!

A lot of blogs have been doing looks that consist of chic black and white looks. Inspired, I pulled together this outfit from items I already owned. The tank is from JCPenney last year, very simple and casual, but worked perfectly with this look. I scoured the interwebs to find a bunch of other cute black and white tank top options if you are interested in trying this look on your own! Check you closet first though, cause you may already own a nice top you could pair with white pants to recreate this look in your own way! Make sure to add a nice pop color into your look – it is super trendy and cute, and perfect for the warmer summer months. Sometimes you can work in a few pop colors, like I did here with the necklace and clutch. Hope everyone tried this look out, it is very chic and kind of fun! Happy hunting, and have a great weekend!
