The smartest pieces to buy are classic pieces. You can wear them to work. You can wear them to a nice dinner. You can wear them to the theater. The list goes on. And best of all, you will keep them for a long time because they won't go out of style. I love this outfit because it just screams classic and elegant. Every woman needs a classic pair of black sunglasses. The Hugo Boss ones below are perfect and a great deal at $59.99 when they are originally $120. The bracelet is a great way to add a little color and jazz it up a bit. And those Mary Jane shoes will probably go with a ton of things already in your closet! This outfit is full of smart buys you will use again and again!

All About Plaid!

Plaid is back! But did it ever really go away? I feel like, to an extent, you can always get away with a little plaid. It seems to come and go in waves. There is a lot available right now in, what I am calling, summer plaid. Plaid dresses, shorts, Bermuda's, and shoes! Many fun colors!Personally, I don't wear much plaid. I went through a phase in high school where I owned a pair of plaid pants. But I don't talk about that! Haha! But I think I would be about a plaid dress for summer! I love the dress below from Forever 21. It seems perfect to wear to an outdoor party on a warm evening! And I do love the plaid flats! Those ould look great with a pair of jeans!

A Great Day to be Casual

Great day to be Casual!
So I was thinking about those evenings and weekends when you are not at work and you really don't feel like being dressed up to go out. Maybe you are meeting some friends for a drink. Or heading to a movie. You can still be casual but stylish. It's all about the accessories!

Look of the Day:

I think this outfit is very girly and pretty, but still casual. You can keep the soft fem look by using the off white scarf, or you can give the outfit a bit of color by using the purple. I think it would look great either way! Another thing I love about this look is you can get away with it in many places. You can go grab a beer with friends at a bar, go see a band play, or you could even wear it to a nice restaurant (not a fancy one, but a nice one). Yes, you are wearing jeans, but all the little details really dress it up! And the Clutch is from Felix Ray for Target. If you haven't checked out the new line yet, it is a must! So many cute bags for summer! Just try not to go too crazy!
