Spring Trend for 2013: Bermuda Shorts

22 Mar

Spring is here, although it feels more like winter in Michigan. On a fashion note Bermuda shorts were big on the runway for spring 2013, will you be rocking the look?

I must admit they can be intimidating, but they are family friendly and perfect for the girl who is not into the cheek-baring cutoffs. Plus they are a nice alternative to a skirt. I am a fan of them and J.Crew has them in the best colors at great prices with some added stretch for comfort and flattering to the figure.

Or go for the black and white tuxedo look, like the last photo, you will get three trends in one, as we know by now that black and white is big this spring as are tuxedos, how can you go wrong with a black and white tuxedo?

Black White and Neon Yellow

27 Feb

My intention for my outfit posts on the blog is to keep track of what I have in my wardrobe so that I could get the best use out of it and only invest in essentials that I can wear from season to season which is why you see me styling my garments in different ways, like my favorite leggings which I also wore here.

Oxblood and Dots

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

The snow already melted from last week’s blizzard from the 40 degree weather we had over the weekend. I wish the snow would stick around it looks prettier than this gray weather we have had lately. I am sure you have seen this sequins polka-dotted top a lot from other bloggers, only I have seen it in the black with the white polka-dots. I settled for the vintage champagne I figured it would transition well for spring and summer. Who says sequins is only for winter?

Yes, this black and white snake print clutch again! For one, black and white is big this spring, two black and white has always been classic, and three this clutch seems to go well with many of my looks, (and to think I thought about returning it).

Have a Spectacular Weekend

8 Feb

TGIF Jewels,

I woke up to a blizzard this morning, and while I was planning on going shopping for the hubby for Valentine’s Day I may have to shop on-line while there is still time.

Here are a couple of things I found for him, and for myself while browsing the web.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Truffles – Wait! These aren’t your ordinary truffles they are adorned with Mexican “Day of the Dead” skulls, skulls are everywhere these days, but the best part is the ingredients which include Mexican hot spices such as cayenne and cinnamon, how tempting is that!

Men’s five-star terry robe – Made of 100% Turkish Cotton talk about luxurious comfort!

YSL 2013 Spring Collection Make-up – With names that include precious stones such as jade and bronze pyrite!

Colorblock Socks – Sometimes something as simple as pretty socks can brighten your day.

A new tie for a change – Get him to break away from the same boring ties week after week.

Hope you consider some of these suggestions and that you all have a spectacular weekend!

P.S. Don’t forget about our give-away here!

Still in: Stripes

30 Jan

Hello Lovelies,

Stripes are not going anywhere this season and this winter I am wearing them with my brightest garments to get me out of the rut from this gloomy gray winter, although the last couple of days have felt more like spring in the upper 50s-60s not bad for winter in the MI.

I am loving these nude neutral J.Crew ribbed tights they look pretty close to my skin color and what is even better is that they keep me warm.

Gloomy Gray

20 Dec

Happy Thursday Jewels,

One reason I love gloomy gray weather is because I can wear a lot of my favorite accessories such as scarfs, tights, boots, etc…

I had this sweater dress for many years and I love how simple it is because I can accessorize it differently giving it a new look, sometimes I wear it from front to back like I did here.

Winter Essentials

29 Nov

Hello Jewels,

It is that time of the year to add a couple of winter essentials or put them back to use, in my case it is both, I added a couple and already had some in my wardrobe.


Black leather boots, whether knee-high, mid length, or booties: Rebeca Sanver


A new polish (this color looks great with gray): essie blue rhapsody

Metallic sweater: Rock & Republic you can find here.


Studded belt old: J.Crew


And it is essential for my dog Mocha to have new seasonal outfit as well.

Hope you all enjoy your day, and that you have started incorporating your winter essentials into your wardrobe.

Until next time,
Monica

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.

Chambray – grand & greene, French Hen Sweater – J.Crew, Lips – Bobby Brown Orange, Wool Skirt – J.Crew, Bag – Coach, Cowboy Boots – Vintage

Until next time friends,

Navy Blue With A Cherry On Top

14 Nov

Hello Jewels,

I hope you are all having a great day!

As mentioned in a earlier post here that this sweater has become one of my favorites this fall, and it will take me into winter as well, it literally goes with many of my items in my wardrobe, whether I am mixing prints or keeping it streamline.

Take a look.


And a splash of mint was all I needed to brighten what could have been a very dark look.
