A few years ago, colored jeans made a major comeback.  This trend was one that I was really happy about because it gave me a chance to add some color into my wardrobe while still being able to wear jeans 24/7.  These royal blue J Brand jeans are ones that I still love to wear in the summer months because they add a great splash of color and get me out of my normal neutrals only kick.  Today I paired them with a simple white tunic and my Star Mela clutch to add another major pop of color.  Recycling trends and pairing them with some classic staples that you already have in your closet is a great way to get the most out of your wardrobe.  To shop this look, click the links above or below!

Memorial Day is the unsung hero of holidays because not only is it a special day to honor our armed forces, but it is also the official kick off to summer which means great weather, beach trips, vacations and BBQ's.   It also means you can break out the white pants without judgement if you are still one of those people who follow the fashion rules.  What I love most about memorial day weekend is you can put your jackets and sweaters away and bring your t-shirts, tank tops and shorts to the front of your closet.  Today I am kicking off the celebration by hand picking the perfect Memorial day outfit for every age group.  All four of these are perfect for almost any memorial day celebration whether you are heading to a party or just hanging around your house with family.  All of these looks can take you from the holiday weekend into the summer months so you continue to be the most stylish person in the room!  To shop my picks, click the links above or below.

I'm not going to lie, its been awhile since I've invested in a new handbag and I am starting to get the itch to add to my collection.  The problem is there are so many amazing bags out there right now, I am having a hard time deciding.  When the weather gets warmer I like to either wear a bright bag to inject some color into my outfit or go for the lighter more neutral bags like white or blush pink.  Right now I am loving the Gucci handbag series, but depending on your budget Rebecca Minkoff has great options at a much lower price point for a similar look.  To shop my picks, click the links above and below.

Off-the-shoulder tops are all the rage this year.  When I saw this bright blue Topshop version with a flutter sleeve, I knew it would make a great statement piece. The fit is slightly cropped, but the flowy look makes it perfect with a pair of high waisted jeans.  Today I decided to pair it with my favorite flares from Paige Denim.  For an extra pop of color I added my Star Mela clutch for a summery vibe.  It's not my usual neutral outfit, but it is a great change of pace for the warm summer weather!  To shop this look, simply click the links above or below.
