Style Inspiration: Blake Lively

She is stunningly beautiful, incredibly talented, is married to hottie Ryan Reynolds and just announced that she is preggers with the couples first child; I mean what a life. But before we all go coocoo for coco puffs about Blake Lively’s maternity style, I wanted to spend some time and take inspiration from her fashion choices thus far. From the time she came into notoriety after the success of the first Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie through the fashion forward Gossip Girls moment in time through now, BL has undergone a transition in terms of her style. She went from a simple Cali girl with casual everything tendencies to a sophisticated, more mature yet still approachable fashion icon in the making. I appreciate her take on red carpet fashion. She chooses looks that are playful and girly, never stiff or boring, while her off duty looks are more lux girl next door.

Blues & Grays

Lovin’ me some southwestern prints in this fall appropriate outfit post. I paired a bold and colorful cardigan over an all black look and finished it of with my fave heeled booties and silver rings on every finger.

A Few Drops of Jupiter


It’s Monday which rhymes with manicure so I’m starting the week of with a #manimonday post. I found this fab picture of a nail art idea while doing my daily readying of Refinery 29. It caught my eye because of how simple it is and still so edgy and of the moment so I copied it (what is it they say about imitation). It didn’t take that long to recreate and the overall feeling I get every time I look down at my fingers is happiness, so yay! Thoughts?!

Graphic Prints

Surprisingly, this is only the second time I’ve worn this graphic print button up. I do like the top, a lot, but something about the print is so special and wearing it often would somehow take away from it. Both times I paired it with skinny jeans and heels because it feels like such a classic look.
