The Super Easy Way to Wear Floral Print

The idea that bright colors should be saved for summer should be tossed away and I am glad that the fashion world has come on board. It used to be that white and other bright colors are not to be worn after labor day. Granted warm tones like brown and plum look good on fall jackets and winter coats, however mustard yellow jackets and blush blazers look just as great in the cooler weather. Today the focus is on the floral print and how to wear it.

The Super Easy Way to Wear a Floral Print

Its the beginning of fall and I am rocking florals and yellow! What can I say Iike to live on the edge. This outfit includes a very bold mustard yellow color from the blazer and purse while the blue jeans balance out the look.

The casual ruffle floral top from Gozon, is the star and anchor of this outfit therefore I selected the accessories, shoes and pants around it. This is a good way to figure out how to style your outfits, find the item that anchors the look and style with items that complement it. When it comes to wearing a floral print like this one it is important not to overdo it by mixing it with another print. Best to pair floral prints with solid prints like I did with these blue jeans. Because the weather is getting cooler in the evenings the mustard yellow blazer was the perfect fit to provide a layer of warmth.

Accessories play a key role in completing this outfit. Bead bracelets, a layered necklace and the Instagram famous Daniel Wellington White Classic Petit Bondi Watch. You can get the same watch or any watch of your choice on the Daniel Wellington website for 15% off! Just use the code STILETTOS at checkout.

Jord: A unique watch for all fashionistas

Being a big unique watch collector I am always looking for a great watch to add to my collection. When the Jord team reached out to collaborate I was extremely excited because I had been eyeing their fabulous watches on Instagram. After browsing their many styles, I selected the Frankie Zebrawood & Champagne watch which has become my favorite watch to wear this spring.

Jord: A unique watch for all fashionistas Jord watches are the epitome of fashion forward, luxury and stylish watches. What makes Jord watches unique is that they are made of natural wood. My watch is made with zebra wood which is a exotic hardwood with a stripe pattern. This unique watch has a simple but elegant face made with sapphire glass and a champagne color that goes with any outfit. I love how the watch looks so good with my white blazer. I have noticed that the wood looks amazing against denim so you know you can’t go wrong with it.

The Jord Watches come in a wooden box with a little drawer underneath which I think is pretty cool. I really love that they give you the option to customize the watch by sizing, engraving the watch as well as engraving the box. The sizing service is awesome for those with tiny wrists like I do. You have the option to size the watch before you receive it which is super convenient.

Classic style diary

What do you wear when you feel like channelling your inner Audrey Hepburn and want to create a classic style look? I reach out for my wide brim hat, my Prada all black sunglasses and a tweed blazer. This look is a an interesting one because the top half is classic elegant and the bottom half is casual chic. I wore my go to black skinny jeans and a pair of  grey pointy flats to complete the look.

My favorite thing about this outfit is that it is an effortless yet elegant and simple look, perfect for a Saturday running errands. The flats provide comfort and classic style at the same time. The hat is included mostly because I was having a bad hair day and also due to my current obsession with hats. I think next time I may wear a belt with silver detail or perhaps a white tee and red lips. The possibilities are endless.

Bubbling in Burgundy

Once again its raining and the weather has been gloomy in Boston. Seriously when is the real spring weather going to start, I have some cute shoes I have been dying to wear. Last week we had one sunny day so we jumped at the opportunity to shoot while the sun was out. Since I was going wedding venue touring later that day I opted for this burgundy look. Safe to say I was bubbling in burgundy that day.

How to wear Burgundy

Burgundy is a surprisingly very stylish color, I don’t know why I never gravitated towards it when I was shopping. Maybe it’s because of my obsession with black clothing. This rich wine color is certainly a nice break from black.

  • Do the preppy look: Wear your burgundy colored pants with a houndstooth textile blazer for a very chic and preppy look like I did with this outfit.
  • Pair it with black: This lovely color goes very well with a few colors however it seems to be a perfect match with black. Think burgundy pants and a black blouse or vise versa. This combo makes for a very rich and elegant look.
  • Incorporate it in your accessories: If the thought of wearing this color scares you how about hints of it in your outfit like a burgundy hat. Matter of fact I just bought a this color hat from Aldo which I am wearing here. You could even opt for a scarf, bag or shoes in this fabulous color.

Its no secret that I love to wear a lot of black however it can be tough to find the right colors to go with an all black look. I felt these Aria booties were a nice complement to my look together with the pashmina. There is also something about lace up shoes that adds an element of preppy chic which I love.

You can wear these booties with pretty much anything. I wore mine with black jeans and next time I think I will wear them with blue cropped jeans and a brown wool blazer. Because the Aria bootie comes in different colors including black, blue, dark green, brown and khaki there is definitely something for everyone.
