Reviving the Flares?

I am a skinny jeans devotee, but I will admit that these recent looks have revived my interest in flares.

(All) Black is Not Boring

The monochromatic all black outfit does not have to be boring, especially when texture plays a role.  Check out how these ladies do it:

Ultimate Shoe

Oxfords and brogues seem to be the ultimate shoe.  You can style them with jeans, dresses, pants, skirts.  Dressed up and down, they are a versatile shoe.

I love good flats - particularly, accent flats on a rather understated outfit.  Look and learn:

Rockin' the Tee

In remembrance of a rock legend, we're looking at rock n' roll tees today.


Hope this provides some inspiration on how to wear the rocker tee.  RIP, David Bowie.

White Button Downs

I love a good button down shirt.  The right one is slimming, flattering and casual - all the while being comfortable.

My favorite one is the Steven Alan Reverse Seam.  For the 5'2" frame, finding a shirt of the correct length can pose a challenge.  Many are simply too long.  However, this is my favorite shirt, because it's the correct length on me, while being fitted but not tight, comfortable without being sloppy.  On this particular shirt, I am partial to the small detail by the collar - the small twist.  It's subtle and noticeable.
From Steven Alan 
The other reason I love button down shirts, and white in particular, is because you can literally wear them with anything.  Dressed up, dressed down, pants, skirts, jeans, shorts... literally anything.  And, they have the ability to walk that fine line between dressed up and dressed down.

Check out these lovely outfits, all featuring the white button down.
