Black on Black

Monochromatic is the word. Black on black is easy, yet sophisticated. Maybe I was inspired by the red carpet attire at the SAG Awards, but it was one of those day! (Black was a hue of the evening!) Patterned tights add texture and the abstract scarf breaks up the solid palette.

Winter Mini

The cooler weather is still reigning supreme as each day I'm having to layer more and more garments to keep warm! Being short in stature, I'm always an advocate for a mini skirt! The winter white felt mini is a great girl-on-the-go, throw on with any top kind of look! I paired it with a royal blue silk blouse and I'm loving the slight detail on the collar. You can't go wrong with an animal print cardi and I had to give my feet a rest with the glitter smoking slipper.

There's nothing more inviting on a chilly day than an over-sized cozy sweater. This is one of my favorites! Such an easy look to pull off and so comfortable! Skinny jeans, flat riding boots, and classic blouse (with a little bling!) make for an easy afternoon of weekend shopping!

How can you not feel lovely when wearing sequins? Though we are seeing them mixed more and more into casual attire, they still carry a certain posh element. I threw on the sequin top with my jacquard mini and finished the look with black booties.

After an extensive search, I finally found the perfect pair of distressed denim! Being short, I like that you can roll them at the ankle for a preppy look. Combining the casual jean with a flirty peplum top offsets the idea of "grunge" because of the torn threads. The final feminine touch is the classic black pump! Sorry, when it's 70 degrees in January, I can't help put reminisce on spring/summer with a pop of neon!

On dismal winter days, it's a challenge to think past the go-to black work pant. In an attempt not to get fussy as I prep for another work day, I pulled out my olive work pant; complete with zippers and leather trim! I throw on a printed blouse and finish the look with leg lengthening jewel tone calf hair pumps!

This post is a little tardy, but I couldn't help myself because of the eye-catching sequins!

Though basic, I love the structured vibe of a collared shirt. You can build on it with jewelry and accessories or other articles like a herringbone quilted vest. You can't go wrong with skinny jeans and ballet flats!

Winter White

The relaxed fit of a trouser pant is not only comfortable, but forgiving! (Which I need after this holiday season!) Winter white is highly versatile and easy to mix and match. Though it's January, I'm channeling a slightly nautical theme with navy and white stripes. Happy 2013 everyone!
