Yeah, I meant it to be a pretty bright post. Even from the overly crazy flare app i used to make the photos pop! So, the winter season is coming to Florida and it's time to bear the cold, and not with ugly hoodies and sweats. Wear your scarves, layer with sweaters and cute collared tops, and wear cords for a different texture than jeans.

Tropical storm Sandy is bringing an unusual chill to Florida, so wear what you like while you can! 

Tee: Madewell Jeans: Pacsun Belt: J. Crew Boots: Sam Edelman Watch: Michael Kors. 



I love masculine pieces mixed with girly pieces; it gives a look an unexpected edge. Just by pairing a utility jacket with a feminine dress, blouse or skirt you add a little boyish appeal. You can find a utility jacket just about any where. Mine in particular is from J. Crew and it's my go to piece.  I'm surprised I don't have a picture of my favorite Van Halen T-shirt with my blingy necklace. I have worn the combo with leather shorts, pleated skirts, boyfriend jeans and a floral skirt (favorite contrast). Another way to incorporate the boyish/girly trend is by pairing your boyfriend jeans with a girly blouse and pumps. There are endless ways and I just can't get enough of it.

What's not to love about this collection? You have your sleek black looks to your ethereal lace pieces. I can see Taylor Tomasi wearing the printed ensembles, while Kate Lanphear sticks to the all black pieces. This spring collection had something for everybody. You could be edgy, trendy or natural, but still stand out. From a scale to 1-10 I give it a 10, it blew my mind! 



A hint of leopard never hurt anyone; it only makes a person's outfit complete. Use it to mix prints, Add as a neutral and lastly to break up a monochromatic look. My take is down below 


J. Crew Etta Calf Hair. Equipment Blouse. Anthropologie Belt. Forever New Scarf.

The sights of summer are nowhere to be seen.

 But since it's summer, I'm ready to show it.

Your investment pieces will be your bathing suit and sunglasses, for without them there is no summer. Your essential piece will be your Chambray Shirt, which you can wear with practically anything. If you never know how to pair prints, wear chambray; it's a no brainer. Your on trend piece would be, printed shorts. Which are one of my favorite summer pieces at the moment. I'm especially loving the hawaiian print I'm seeing everywhere. A little tourist chic, you can call it. A cute tote is a must since where are you going to put your tanning oil? While I bring my spf 100! And Lastly, shoes are a given. You can never have to many shoes. 



What isn't amazing about this collection? I saw this collection over on Because I'm Addicted & I couldn't get over how much I wanted every piece. The prints, the boyish appeal, the cuts, and especially the lack of boring is what really draws me in. All I know, is this up and coming designer is going to be HUGE!



Since i have yet to actually take outfit pics with my camera, thank goodness for Instagram. Check mine out @lovelyfringe



It's many days and one month to be exact that I have yet to make a post since the new year. New years resolutions are made, but are they kept? First on my list was to make blogging my priority again; but the moment you slack once, it becomes habit to start forgetting. So..Let me try to keep my promise since I still have time to catch up, I think. The Spring Madness is arriving everywhere! Pastels, Florals, and dainty cute stuff is what I have been lusting after. Normal? I'm not sure but the fever can't last forever. For now DROOL!
