Keeping Cool in Cashmere

- Fashion

It’s no surprise that when someone says “cashmere” you automatically think of sweater weather.  We know, sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa in your cozy cashmere.  We get it.  But who says you can’t keep cool in cashmere too?  Take “no sweaters in summer” and throw that fashion stigma right out the window with “no white after Labor Day” and we’ll show you how.   Cashmere is a very fine fabric, not like your coarser wools or heavy cottons,…

American Style, Italian Leather – My Armadio

- Fashion

We love all things Italian – luxury, food, bread, coffee and definitely leather.  Our Armadio bags are no exception to that!  We typically wear our bags more than any other piece of clothing so before we considered Armadio, we wanted to make sure these bags were going to last and were versatile enough that they can be worn daily.  {Spoiler Alert} They are.   Armadio bags are direct to consumer, which means that we as the consumer can get these bags without the…

Statement Skirts

- Fashion

Look ma, no pants!  Statement skirts are everything right now and while this is actually a skort, it still made a statement.   Rocking a mini skirt in the winter is bold because, well, because it’s winter.  I love pairing them with sheer black tights and flat ankle booties.  The tights do little to keep your legs warm but at least you have the flat booties so you can move quickly back into the heat, if I’m being honest.  This skirt…

Rent The Runway

- Collaborators, Fashion

Ladies, we’ve all been there. The stressful “I have nothing to wear” stage of fury when trying to plan an outfit for a big event. My room can be completely spotless until I flip through my wardrobe and can’t find the perfect piece for whatever event is coming up. In an instant, tops are tossed and shoes cover the floor like you just walked into “the land of misfit looks”. Rent The Runway saves you from the stress of searching your…

Accessorize for Winter from Head to Toe

- Fashion

Let’s be real, the cold sucks. I mean, who doesn’t prefer red lips to red noses?  But if we’re looking at the cocoa mug half full, the cold is perfect for layering.  That goes for accessories too!  Not like layering 3 hats on top of each other, but making sure when you accessorize, your conscious of the season.   I kept my love for floppy hats winter-ready with this one by BCBG.  The brim is wider than average and it’s leather…

My Take on the Mini-Backpack Trend

- Fashion

I went through my four years of high school with probably as boring of a backpack as it gets, the typical black Jansport backpack. After graduating and starting college, the love story between my Jansport and I slowly faded. I found there were so many chic and easy alternatives to a backpack not only for school purposes, but that could be used as a fashion statement too. Since I was still adamant about sticking to my favorite color, (black, duh),…

Transition Your Look from Day to Night

- Fashion

A versatile outfit can take you from 9-5 to 5-9 without much effort.  With a few steps, you can make the transition seamlessly and therefore get more wear out of your look.  And all things considered, don’t we all want to get the most out of our investments (including investment pieces)?   For example, I transitioned this Bowie sweatshirt from Zara, leather athletic shorts and Doc Martens from day to night.  My friend recently came to visit from Virginia Beach and…
