Skinny Jeans: My Fall Staple

Skinny Jeans: My Fall Staple | Designing From My Closet

When it comes to getting dressed this fall, I seem to be gravitating more and more to jeans.  And just because an outfit has jeans, it doesn’t mean it is not put together or appropriate for client meetings.  Today I wanted to show a simple combination of pieces I thrifted using some skinny jeans.  It is so easy and it can be adapted to what you may already have in your own closet.  I have also compiled a shopping list with links at the end with similar options to what I am wearing at the end of the post.

Wearing Every Color of the Rainbow

Wearing Every Color of the Rainbow | Designing From My Closet

Wearing color is one of my signature things to do.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good neutral outfit, but more times than not, I will grab one of more colorful items in my closet to start off creating a look.  Often times I get told by other women how much they love the color I am wearing, but they could never wear it.  It brings me back to the eighties when there were home parties where you would get “draped” to find out what your colors were.  I remember back then it confused me as I never wanted to rule out any color to wear.  So today I am showing you six different outfits to show how I wear every color of the rainbow with items I already have in my closet.  Each one is loved by me and I feel confident in all of them.

It feels like forever since I have sat down to write a blog post.  As life goes, stuff happens.  I also have had a bad case of writers block, so that hasn’t helped the creative juices to flow.  So today I am simply going to share a recent outfit of mine when I wore an off the shoulder top and some cropped pants.  I also want to share a lot of the new ventures I am working on.

The statement sleeve is a style detail that is being seen on high end and more budget friendly items.  Any sort of embellishment, cut out, or dramatic shape including pleats and trumpet and bell shapes.  Some are more subtle, while others shout “here I am”, in other words, this trend has a little something for everyone.

Green St Patrick's Day Lookbook | Designing From My Closet

Happy St Patrick’s Day!  I can’t believe we are officially in the spring season beginning Monday.  Time sure is flying by.  Green is my absolute favorite color and has been ever since I can remember, so dressing for St Patrick’s Day has always been a special treat for me.  Here are four looks I recently pulled together from items in my closet that have green in them.  They not only are appropriate for today, they are perfect for all Spring long!  Most of these items have been thrifted or purchased at discount retailers such as Target and Charming Charlie so they are very budget friendly.
