Plaid Pants

12 Dec

Hi Jewels,

Hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!

As much as my sister loves polka-dots I love plaids. I have run around to hardware stores, and appliance stores with my husband since we bought our house and like any fashionista I have to make it a fashion statement.

Layering in Michigan is more necessary than it is a fashion statement, and although it hasn’t snowed it has been cold.

Country Chic

28 Nov

Hello Jewels,

Yes, I go country more of a preppy country, blame it on our roots. We grew up surrounded by ranches, in fact my husband and I married about five minutes away from Neverland Ranch, and Ronald Reagan’s ranch (Rancho del Cielo) which is why it was essential growing up in our area to own a pair of authentic cowboy boots.

I have had these gems for several years and they get better with time. I wear them through out the fall, with leggings, skinnies, skirts, and dresses.

I better watch it before Mocha my dog steals my thunder she is much more of a natural at modeling her little outfits.

Billie Jean

26 Sep

Happy Wednesday Jewels,

Although I am nowhere near a groupie as Michael Jackson referred to Billie Jean in is his famous song which happens to be my favorite dancing song I definitely feel like I can pass for a girl named Billie Jean is this get-up.

These boots are super comfy and I’m loving this color because it is very neutral, the black were too harsh for my liking, and the brown were a little too predictable, these are the stone leather which is more of a gray.

Wayfarer Ray Ban, earrings essentjewels, chambray grand & greene, belt J.Crew (old) tribal clutch Miztique, watch Gucci, skinnies 7 for all mankind, boots Steve Madden you can find here.

Until next time,

From Summer To Fall

24 Sep

Happy Monday friends!

This past weekend I cleaned until I could no more I like to call it Cinderella. One project I’m working on is my closet. I am organizing it and I’m nowhere near done! I should have taken before and after photos, I cannot wait until I am done. I will feel better. I took a quick scan and pulled out all of my summer clothes that I will be wearing throughout winter, got to love the chambray, my over-sized purse and the bright shoes that can smoothly transition into winter!  What will you be wearing into winter?

Michael Kors: shoes| No brand: leggins| White long sleeve: Splendid| Zara: Chambray|Purse: Nordstrom

Oh yes! I cut my bangs too, I’ve had bangs for years! Until my hairstylist about killed me to grow them out. I have a round face so I’m always a fan of the side swept bangs. But today I was playing with different looks. I need a new look which will make fall that much more exciting.

As always, Carolina xoxo

American Girl

10 Jul

Hello there Jewels,

I hope you are all off to an excellent Tuesday.

It used to be that I would wake up to an 8-5 dressing up in a pencil skirts, polo shirts, dresses, slacks, etc., now a days I am enjoying what we Americans do best wear jeans. Yes, we know we Americans love to wear jeans, why not, we make the best ones. I have had these jeans for seven years and they get better with time my friends.

Chambray: grand & greene, everyone should have one of these in their wardrobe.

I am such a fan of gold cuffs and pearls: essentjewels, and I especially like to wear them combined, this is actually a two strand pearl bracelet, and I added my vintage wire Gucci watch in between. I guess you are all getting the hint that my style is very classic, but don’t be surprised if you see me in a post wearing something very modern, and by modern I mean futuristic especially when it comes to shoes, the edgier the better.


Awe, just saw one of my favorite persons over the weekend my hair dresser, not only does he do an excellent job with my hair, he entertains, and makes me laugh. I absolutely cannot live without him. I don’t know what I would do if I moved. I have been seeing him for six years now since I moved to Michigan. He knows exactly what I want every time I see him, which doesn’t change, but if it works for me why break it right? Loafers: Coach


My polish for the 4th red, white, blue, I did my part of being patriotic.


Jeans: AG, super comfy and I love the fit, they are feeling a little snug on me lately I better watch it, us petite people have to really watch what we eat, a couple of pounds is like 20 pounds for the average person.

And a dainty necklace is all I needed to complete this classic look: sweet essentjewels, and of course I had to wear this with my aviator Ray-bans.

I hope you are all off to a fanatic week, and thank you for visiting us.

With love,
Monica
