Serious Statement Necklaces

I always find the best way to add a jolt to your outfit
is by incorporating a statement necklace into your wardrobe.
It becomes the focal point and really adds a burst
of flavor to an otherwise boring top/dress. Below are some 
of my favorite statement necklace options! Nocturne has become
my newest favorite, especially the Jawl Necklace, while the
Nathalia Necklace has been on my wish list for a while.

{ Minted + A Special Announcement }

We have some very exciting news to share with all of our blog readers; 
Cassandra and Roger are engaged! 
They have set their date for September 6, 2014 and the planning 
process is in full swing. One of the first places we thought of 
was Minted. From casual to formal save the dates and invitations, 
they have options for all wedding styles. Cassandra is going 
with an outside, rustic yet elegant wedding in the White Mountains in 
New Hampshire. Minted features both foil and letterpress save the dates and invitations 
at an attainable price. With matching suites that include RSVP cards and thank you notes, 
Minted becomes a one stop source for wedding invitation design.
Plus, i'm also a sucker for anything nautical, so I included the
down by the sea foil pressed wedding invitation suite.
Stay tuned, we can't wait to share more wedding details!

This post was sponsored by Minted, but all ideas are our own.

Stripes and Animal Prints

I recently got a pair of Tory Burch leopard pumps from 
Nordstrom a great sale price. I couldn't help myself. 
I had wanted them when they were full price, so when I found 
them in the clearance section, I knew it was meant to be. 

So, when I saw this photo of these leopard flats that
my mom had pinned on pinterest** I knew I had
to find the pieces to recreate this look! The black and white 
bell skirt, coupled with the cognac bow belt and fold-over clutch
works perfectly with the leopard accessories and I think whether
 you want to wear flats or heels, this looks is just my style!

** I do not have the source for the first image, 
so if you know who it belongs to, please let me know!!

Valentine's Day Outfit

I don't yet know my plans for Valentine's Day,
but I am still going to get dressed up! I do love the color
pink, but I don't own a ton of it.  I have a couple of sweaters in the hue, however,
this year, I am going with my normal navy uniform. I want to look fancy
and comfortable with a pop of pink from my Gigi New York Clutch!

JCrew Scallop Shift Dress (also available in Mango)

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone,
I hope your day is full of love!
