Make A Statement

Statement necklaces are everywhere {as if this was a new thing}. What I love about them, is that they can take a super simple outfit, like a plain white-t with jeans, and make it super chic. 
Here are some of my current favorites...

1. Asos $26  | 2. BCBG $108 | 3. Dannijo $537 | 4. Stella & Dot $99 | 5. Dannijo $745 | 6. Lauren Elan $120

I really think I need #2, the BCBG Snakeprint Necklace. I mean, it's pretty darn fabulous, and won't break the bank. But, if I really had all the money in the world, you bet your sweet self I would have that Dannijo Neon Collared Necklace!

Wishing you all a happy Monday my loves! I am jealous of anyone who has today off.
P.S. I am guest posting over at Renee's blog today, so head on over :)

Tory Burch Fall 2012 RTW

Tory Burch is one of my favorite designers, and her Fall 2012 Ready to Wear Collection, is no exception.

I love how fresh and girly this collection is. Reminds me of a chic Parisian woman. 
Love the incorporation of light and airy fabrics into a collection that usually consists of lots of tweed. 
I would gladly wear any of these outfits - would you?

Today is the last day to enter the EmmaKisstina giveaway, so if you haven't yet, make sure to do so! Have a beautiful day my loves. {Tomorrow is Friday, yay! }

Be My Valentine

Dress: Shanghai dress c/o The Fold / Jacket: F21 / Pumps: Jessica Simpson / Clutch: Madison Elizabeth / Jewelry: ABS by Allen Schwartz, BeBe, Kate Spade, F21 / Lipstick: MAC Lady Danger

I actually wore this outfit to work on Friday, minus the pumps, clutch, and red lipstick! After work, Ashley and I headed to a Valentine's Day dinner that some of our guy friends put on for some of us girls, and I decided to keep my outfit relatively neutral and add a pop of red {to keep in Valentine spirit} with my lipstick. 
*Note: I apologize that this picture isn't the best quality, it was already dark outside, and I had to result to indoor pictures!

Happy Valentine's Day to all you amazing ladies!
What will you be wearing tonight? {No guy for me - my mom is my date!}
Need some inspiration for an outfit? 
Check out a Valentine's Day inspired outfit I created over at Made By Girl!
Oh, and don't forget to enter my giveaway...;)
Lots of love,

All About The Details

{all images via atlantic-pacificcaged-soul, and olive & taupe}

From the color of your nails, to the rings that you wear, to the bag that you sport, every little detail matters. 
Sometimes it's that one thing, such as adding a perfect little bow to your hair, that can make or break an outfit.
Who ever said less was more obviously didn't know the fabulousness that is Blair Eadie.
