Get Wrapped Up: Winter Scarf Style

winter scarf style fashion header

If you’re anything like me, scarves fall into the category of, “I love them, I want them, but I’d rather buy about 100 other things first!”

Am I right, or am I right?!

Scarves are easily one of the most practical and transformative accessories in our closets, yet why are we always so hesitant to pull the trigger when it comes to scoring that scarf of our dreams? From wool plaid to plush cashmere, winter scarves are going to be the centerpiece of your winter outerwear, so do me a favor, ok!?

Let’s ditch those thin, dinky, polyester poor excuses for a scarf and let’s get down to real scarf business!

Embellished Shoes


I am briefly breaking my moratorium on any Fall fashion talk to bring you this important message: this Fall, over-the-top, embellished shoes will be EVERYWHERE.

Think Cinderella’s glass slipper on a crack bender.

Based on Fall ’17 designer runways, merchandise hitting the stores and just overall fashion buzz, this season more is definitely more — at least when it comes to footwear. If you thought WHITE ANKLE BOOTS were a bit wild, buckle your seat belts you’re in for a fashion ride!

Don’t get your hopes up, folks.

This post is not quite as racy as the title sounds, although it’s definitely right up your alley. Last week, I realized that one of my most read posts OF. ALL. TIME. is THIS.

What can I say!?

The 10 Best Handbags of 2017 (For Every Budget!)

10 best handbags 2017 header1

I think any woman can be definitively placed into one of three categories — a handbag girl, a shoe girl or a jewelry girl.

(Which one are YOU?)

I’m most definitely a handbag girl, with shoes coming in a very close second place. Jewelry… eh. Take it or leave it… although if you’re handing it out, I’ll definitely take it.

Fur Pom Hat

Welcome, friends! Hope you all stayed cozy and warm this weekend!

The last few days have been a cold shock to the system (to say the least). After what’s been a pretty mild Autumn, Cleveland got the full-on, polar vortex treatment, lake effect snow and all. Most tragically, I think I lost my favorite hat.

Velvet Booties


Every so often a style comes along that can accomplish the impossible — provide a high quality dupe at a fraction of the designer price.

Velvet booties are perhaps the best of example of this rare fashion feat this season. With hundreds of styles to choose from and virtually no visible difference between the high-end, designer versions and the fast-fashion bargains, this is the fall trend to jump on… or jump into?!

Mad Hatter


Fact: I am clumsy.

Fact: I spilled an entire cup of coffee on myself 20 minutes before this scheduled shoot and had to switch my outfit last minute.

Fact: A wide brim wool hat came to the rescue.

Pom Pom Sandal


Predictably, there is usually one standout new summer trend that takes the shoe world by storm. Last year, it was the gladiator sandal.

This year is the year of the pom pom sandal.

While I will just lay it out there and say, this is not exactly my “cup-of-tea” when it comes to my own personal style and aesthetic, I can fully appreciate a colorful and fun addition to anyone’s wardrobe. The bold colors and textural details add zip to any basic look — it’s basically a party on your feet — and will be a perfect compliment to a hot summer night.

Margaritas optional.

(Click on the images below for product details!)

Three cheers for the pom-pom!

Does this colorful shoe trend get your stamp of approval? Yea or nay?
