Welcome Winter!

It's officially winter, BUT all of the stores are reducing prices on fall & winter wear, getting closer & closer to hanging those spring fashions! Actually, I saw quite a bit of "spring" out there as I shopped for Christmas presents. For those like me who are all about the cooler temps & want to live in the moment, taking in as much winter wear as we can, without thinking of spring break, bikini's and flip flops... here ya go! 
Let's welcome the official start to winter with...

Cable Knits
Target & Nordstrom

Bold Colors
Anthropologie &

Nordic Patterns
Free People

Accessory of the season... HATS!

All items above can be found in my sets here:

Now, onto another important fashion topic...  what to wear for New Year's Eve. Many of you will be party hopping & sipping bubbly with friends & family while others will be sitting by a fire in pj's with a cup of cocoa... and the later is most likely where I'll be.  But,  I'm hoping to peek your "pinterest" with these hot looks for a cold winter night! Sequins & sparkle in more subdued shimmer to amazing show stoppers have been spotted in discount stores to high end boutiques this season. Here are several looks I put together for a night out... cheers!

When all the partying is done, decorations are put away & you just want to snuggle in and take some time to unwind... why not look cute while wrapped up in a big "Little Giraffe" blanket (YES, they do make them for adults!), reading a book while drinking something warm & tasty? 
Details are on polyvore here:

Wishing you all a wonderful & *stylish* 2012!

Warm & Cozy Colors

Fashion Color Report #4 & #5 - Coffee Liqueur & Nougat

My poor little blog has been neglected! I have styled numerous families in the last couple months & have been taking photos, building up my portfolio as my hobby may just turn into something more... soon!?!  My time has been spent searching, pairing, accessorizing, clicking & editing. Now, time for a little reprieve to give a little love & attention to the blog while hopefully giving you all tips & fun fashionable finds!  Back to those fabulous fall colors...

Seriously, these two - coffee liqueur & nougat, just sound so delicious and toasty warm for a cool crisp fall day! I love the pairing of a bright pop of color with the more subdued brown tones. GORGEOUS! 

A little color inspiration for my first look!

These are my Polyvore Sets using the brown tones... 
I could see this first look for a casual photo session, play date, or just running errands around town! Layer with a patterned tank & a neutral coat for all of you experiencing COLD weather. Pair with skinny jeans and Uggs too!

This look could work for a little dressier photo session, or perhaps a lunch date, or even to the office! Again, loving the pop of color in the headband or bangles. This OLD NAVY dress could also be paired with a long sleeve tee under the dress, in a brown or ivory tone. Hey, maybe belt it with your favorite wide animal print! You know I could never have a post without animal print, or mention of it!
PS - I included my FAVORITE boots... Frye! LOVE them, I have this pair in black. They are THE most comfortable pair of boots I've ever worn. Find them at Nordstrom or Zappos.
Here's a warm chocolate look. YEP, another budget dress! This one is from Target. But remember, I am notorious for pairing an inexpensive piece with nicer accessories & handbag... does so much for the overall look. Change out the belt for one already in your closet, add a cool patterned or textured scarf and coordinating earring like the ones shown for another way to wear this dress. Bundle up with your neutral winter jacket and fashionable mittens... your set!

Here's a look at infant/toddler accessory options, of course perfect for a fall/winter photo session! All pieces can be found on Etsy from these shops... Lolly Bop Baby, Oops I knit it Again, Yaso Kids, Bellas Boutique, Cherry Blossom Boutique & Artistic Inclinations.

Here are my pinterest boards... follow my fashion inspiration @!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you found some inspiration for your fall/winter wardrobe. Remember to own your personal style and don't be afraid to kick it up a notch every now & then. Whether you're into the faux fur vest, sparkle dress & peep toe booties, or a comfortable cable knit sweater, jeans, & uggs are your thing... at least one piece in "chocolate liqueur or "nougat," should most definitely be a staple in your closet this fall and into winter.
Stay warm & cozy!

Fashion Color Report #3 -HONEYSUCKLE


I was uber excited when I tuned into Kathy Lee & Hoda on Monday to see the fabulous Honeysuckle color. Hoda's dress, her co-host's tie and the beautiful fresh flowers on their host table looked amazing. 
What a statement color! It could definitely be a pop of color in a fall scarf, shoe, or handbag to add to a dressy or casual ensemble.  

Honeysuckle... it's feminine, sweet and delicate.

Here are few sets I created on Polyvore.
Some accessory options...
I love the combination of hard & soft I created with these pieces. 
Ladies, this is perfect for a date night, night out with the girls, or perhaps a holiday party! 
A casual photo session option for mom... the necklace is the perfect inspiration piece to pull together clothing for the rest of the family!
Holy honeysuckle! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these new GAP fashions for babies, toddlers and girls that won't break the bank! 

One of my most favorite vendors I suggest to clients is Vintage Rose Wraps. Here are some of the styles you can purchase, all have a touch of HONEYSUCKLE and would be perfect for a photo session for mom or daughter!
Home accessory options from Flower Hill Design Company
My Pinterest Board

Seriously, how can you not love this cheerful color? It IS Pantone's color of the year for 2011... so if you don't already own some honeysuckle duds, go out and try something on!  I believe wearing this color will make you feel sweet, sassy, cute or classy. It's a color that  blonds and brunettes alike can wear well. Honeysuckle can be easily paired with browns and black for fall. Hooray for honeysuckle... such a SWEET color!

Fashion Color Report #2 - EMBERGLOW


When reading up on fashionable fall colors this one is by far the most popular! It's certainly a fantastic take on the classic red (my most favorite color)... it boarders on hot pink or melon, a mix of orange and pink! Ok, aka... coral. I'm seeing this color in bright AND more subdued shades. This color that is now gracing the racks in stores, will easily be brought into your own closet and make-up cases to lighten up a dark sweater on a gloomy fall or winter day.
The term emberglow just sounds gorgeous, doesn't it?!
 "Emberglow," it's the color of a juicy red grapefruit!

Here are two sets I styled on Polyvore

Some shoes, for all you lovers of TOMS!

 Pop of color accessory options for a photo session

Toddler boy emberglow (POLO)

For the home... add a pop of color in a grey or neutral color room with this pillow or fabric.

More Emberglow
 Costa Chic, MAC

Emberglow Pinboard on Pinterest

This beautiful coral color can be worn really at any time, for any occasion. It's the perfect color to wear now as the summery days fade into fall. Pair it with brown tones, black, greens, even blue. So if your feeling outgoing or want to spice up a drab neutral palette, throw a little emberglow into the mix!
Fashionably Yours,

Fashion Color Report #1 - BAMBOO

Throughout the next few weeks, I am going to report on some of the most fashionable fall colors - (according to I will be giving you clothing and accessory options for upcoming photo sessions,  pieces to think about adding to your wardrobe for the new season, as well as show some fabulous accessories for your home! 

 When I think of bamboo, I picture a beautiful tree in fall with the changing color of leaves... a gorgeous "bamboo" color.

Here are some brilliant bamboo finds!
Pair this top with skinny jeans and brown knee-high boots, along with a statement necklace.

For a something a little more dressy, pair this blouse with a black trouser and animal print bracelet.


Shoes & Handbags... here are some uber FUN options!

Accessories for a photo session...

Items for the home... decorating with bamboo

Perhaps you would normally shy away from Bamboo at first glance. Don't rule it out... if even in an earring or shoe. It's a beautiful color, a shade of yellow that screams "fall." It's the color of the changing leaves, a harvest moon, a field of sunflowers.

Here's a set I created on Polyvore... with a little hint of color that will be featured in the next post!
This is my Bamboo Board on Pinterest... feel free to follow my fashion boards!

Hope this gives you a little inspiration to put a little bamboo in your closet this fall or perhaps wear in your accessories for an upcoming photo session!
Fashionably Yours,
