All about the basics. I love pairing a casual piece with something less casual for contrast, like a dress and these sneaks.

I don’t think there’s any catalog I get more excited to dive into than when the shiny J.Crew one arrives at my doorstep. I’m so intrigued to see what fab pieces are sprinkled throughout it for the upcoming season. The edgy touch upon their classic pieces this Fall has me swooning over every. single. item.

I can’t get enough of pretty pastel hues! The soft palette screams Spring. They look great paired together or sported solo for a fresh statement.

Q: How Do You Pair A Red Tuxedo Blazer?

I love getting asked by friends and family how to pair items they own different ways. One of my favorite parts of fashion is styling looks, so I was excited to share when a TSS reader, Sheri, asked how she can pair her new red and black tuxedo blazer.

The great thing about a red blazer is that the bold hue is such a statement piece. Throw it on over basics, and it’s the ultimate fashion update. There are endless options to pairing this piece, so I put together three looks to show you how this piece will surely expand your wardrobe, using pieces you might already own.

Blazer: DSquared  /  Top: Mango  /  Denim: Paige  /  Earrings: BaubleBar  /  Handbag: Mango  /  Boots: Forever 21

This look puts a trendy spin on your most simple basics. An ankle boot is can be sported year round, and simple embellishment is a sleek touch. This look can be worn for day or night.

Top: SheInside  /  Blazer: DSquared  /  Jeggings: Michael Kors  /  Handbag: Mango  /  Boots: Wanted  /  Watch: Michael Kors

For days you want to be comfortable, yet chic, riding boots are key. A black jegging gives the look of comfort, without looking sloppy. Complete your look with a simple silver boyfriend watch.

Top: Mango  /  Blazer: DSquared  /  Denim: Paige  /  Handbag: Mango   /  Heels: Mango

A textured blouse is a great staple to pair with bold pieces. A trendy cap toe heel, and shimmery clutch make this look night time approved.

Thanks for your question, Sheri! I hope this gives you inspiration to pair your blazer endless ways!

If you have a style question or need inspiration or an item(s) in your closet, send them my way!

Smitten for Straw

Straw bags are no longer meant for just days in the sand. I love how the classic tote has taken to the streets with leather trim, studded detail, and colored hues. Towels are no longer the only thing you will be toting, this season. The functional style and detail make it easily accessible to carry your essentials in carefree style.
