Casual Friday

ITS FRIDAYYY. My personal favorite day of the week, because I can wear my Oklahoma Kitty t-shirt to work, THE BEST.  Of course with a tweed jacket and leather coated skinny jeans.

And these FABULOUS suede maroon pumps, or as Daniel calls them, my princess shoes. Because every Friday deserves a Cat Tee and Princess shoes. Cheers to that.

I might be overdressed….

Floral Blazer – 4 Ways

Well I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for floral print.  A MAJOR thing. So a floral blazer? Well, it was a done deal. Here are 4 ways to wear it:

IMG_6023

The easiest way to wear it is with a t-shirt and jeans.  (Bonus points if you wear them with colored jeans/cords) Just adds that extra sum’n sum’n to an otherwise plain outfit.

IMG_6024

A good casual Friday look would be with a flippy green skirt and a chambray shirt. (I’m pretty much a walking advertisement for LOFT at this point….. they should pay me)

Of course floral print with stripes. It is the new classic print mix combo.  Get to know it!

I was putting together another look with this black sweater dress and decided that the floral blazer looked awesome with it! Sometimes the best looks are literally thrown together last minute. Over the knee boots and a mini dress, how could you go wrong?

My Weekend Looks

Happy Cold Weather!

I felt super cute this weekend (except for Friday, but Friday is still a weekday… it doesn’t count), so I decided to share it with you all.

SATURDAY SHOPPING

Well Saturday I decided I would go down to “the city” and get some Christmas shopping done. When I wrote that, I felt like I was writing a Jane Austen novel, when the family decides to “go to town” which is like 10 miles away and all the girls buy ribbon. But in this town there’s a J.Crew!

I didn’t feel great Friday, so I thought I would go cozy and comfy with this boxy crop sweater from LOFT. When wearing a boxy sweater or top, pair it with something form fitting underneath to give yourself shape.  Unless you are a box… which is unlikely.

IMG_8172

I thought pairing it with our Chunky Gold Chain necklace would be a great pairing, since the sweater is simple and has a high neckline. And of course, Kate Spade…. Kate Spade anything.

GAME NIGHT

What to wear to game night…. you want to be able to move around , sit on the floor, and look cute.  Cute and sweet, so no one will suspect your competitive spirit.

Why not go with a maxi dress?

Brown + teal = 😀

IMG_8167

You just cant go wrong.  I also put a statement necklace under the scarf so I could take it off when I started to get more intense with the game playing.

IMG_8173

I just love how my husband knows my love of twirling.  I mean really, who doesn’t?

FAMILY PICTURES

Well I wanted to wear something semi-festive, but not so much so that I couldn’t use the pictures for something else.  SO, hunter green dress, booties, and a statement necklace. OH and our cat… but thats a whole other story…

IMG_8166

Ok yeah we brought our cat to family picture time at my husbands work… THEY SAID TO BRING PETS. So we brought Brutus in a bow tie.  Which ended up being me with a cat hair covered dress.

But hey, you do what you do for your family, even if it is just your cat.

Transitioning to Winter

Well, we had a week between 90 degrees and 30 degrees.  It was a nice week.  I went outside, didn’t have to wear shorts, nor did I have to wear a coat.

I miss those days already….

I’m taking this white tee and jeans look from Fall to Winter.

Of course it all starts with an army jacket and a light weight scarf.  And just so you are aware, I am just wearing a white tee shirt, jeans, and booties, then changing everything else.  (Oh and the same purse – that won’t change until I start getting paid to do this, I’m not a professional people!)

IMG_7919

To take it a step further, I add a fuzzy bomber jacket and a slightly heavier scarf.

IMG_7918

This jacket is actually on sale now at Anthropologie! And it is SUPER soft and comfy. It also falls at a nice place on my waist, just enough crop to make it flattering.

Also, notice the front tuck? Yeah I’m J. Crewin’ it up. (at least trying…)

IMG_7917

As you can see from my other posts, I can’t get enough of this scarf.  It literally goes with my entire wardrobe.

And now for the winter coat.

IMG_7920

Ok, I have to admit, I am a little excited to wear this one. I put it with a soft metallic sweater knit scarf – COZY.

IMG_7913

OR you can just put it with your summer chiffon infinity scarf.  You won’t be as cozy, but you will look fabulous!

IMG_7912

Just think of your winter coat as an outerwear dress.  You want to accessorize it too!

Here is the jewelry I’m wearing underneath:

Just something simple.  It is always good to have a simple long necklace you can throw on with anything!

Silk Dress Season

This week I was able to pull out some of my silk dresses because the highs have only been in the 80’s! So wonderful. Madewell always comes out with these gorgeous silk dresses in the Summer, but I can never wear them in the Summer, so I have to patiently wait until Fall.

IMG_6895

This one I love because it is in a subtle animal print and a really pretty olive green that is perfect for Fall. Also, it has pockets AND it is on sale right now.

I put it with one of my new favorite necklaces at Bindhi & Brutus, and if it starts to get chilly in my office, I have this black & white deer scarf to throw on.

Fun with Scarves

It is always good to have an old episode of Downton Abbey available on your laptop when your flight goes longer than expected. Who doesn’t want to be reminded of the glory of Downton Abbey when both Matthew and Sybil were still alive?

OH I love traveling to visit my family in Virginia.  Thai food, shopping, the fancy shampoo my mom puts in the guest bathroom and the extensive wine collection my parents have at their house- you know the important things.

But ah, you do not read this blog for my travel tips… though I do have quite a few.

Back to scarves!

One thing I LOVE about infinity scarves is all the work in correctly tying and wearing a scarf is mostly done. I even turn a lot of my regular scarves into infinity scarves so I can just throw it on and not worry about it getting all messed up.

This trip I decided to relive an old past time with my mom, fabric shopping! Except this time I actually enjoyed it. (Fabric shopping is one of those things that is awesome for the person shopping, but really awful if you don’t have a project in mind)

I used my mom’s beautiful singer sewing machine and decided to take the scarves out on a test run with my sister. (No, my hair is not going blonde)

We went to a winery in Clifton, VA to take the pics and realized that we should probably buy some wine so we would stop getting weird looks from the people working there.

Also because it was an excellent excuse to buy wine.

20140408-154415.jpg

This print I love. It has so many colors, and can go with black AND navy.

And the on trend military jacket…20140408-154430.jpg

How cute is my sister by the way? In the barn pictures she is wearing the multi-colored rayon scarf, which is SO soft and drapes so beautifully!20140408-154548.jpg

This blue tribal print scarf is also great to wear with navy and black. (Those colors are important to me because they are the staples of packing! Or so I think) Also, this is the scarf my husband likes the best. 20140408-154558.jpg

 

20140408-154050.jpg

This scarf is sold out (My sis bought it, sorry!) But I wanted to take pictures of it anyways!

20140408-154355.jpg

What adds more romance to a look than blush chiffon? The understated print allows this scarf to be worn as a solid and will look FABULOUS with black and white.

I always wondered if store owners kept a lot of the items that they sell, and now that I have a store, I can say, yes they do.  Marketing right?

20140409-091359.jpg

So many fun options to vamp up your wardrobe! Plus if none of these fits your fancy, we are frequently adding new styles. (And all scarves are on sale this weekend!!)

 Come shop for one that fits your style!

 

CHUNKY SCARVES.

Knitting is pretty much the perfect activity for watching Love Actually and passing time on a flight to see your family for Thanksgiving (though you might not get much done on your project because the people sitting next to you on the plane can’t fathom how you got your knitting needles through security and they feel obligated to question you about this– it’s allowed people, check out the TSA guidelines) I mean, is it really THAT strange that I am knitting on a plane?

Anyways, Christine and I have been in a knitting FRENZY. It could be because the heat in my house was mysteriously turned off (probably my cats attempt to get more attention), and knitting helped get me warm AND because we unexpectedly  sold a bunch of scarves at the Holiday Marketplace in Enid and decided to make more.

We got the first snow of the season last week and I decided, with the help of my friend Lyssa, to take the scarves out for a test run.

Lyssa is pretty  much rocking all of these photos…. hope she doesn’t realize how great she is at this or I might have to start paying her with more than just nespresso lattes.

We were inspired to make these cowl knit scarves because of similar styles we saw at Anthropologie.  Don’t you LOVE how this cobalt looks with the winter white lace dress??

image

We also discovered a new technique to make these beautiful and warm chunky infinity scarves.

image_1

All of these are so great for adding style to almost any winter coat AND keeping you warm.  Again, I like to layer scarves with a necklace which adds sparkle and dimension to your look, and also because when you get inside and take off your scarf, you still have your third piece.

Also, this picture… because it makes me laugh and I have no idea what she was saying, but it looks like, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
