I wore some pretty interesting outfits this weekend so I thought that they should be documented. The first outfit is an update of one that you have seen previously on my blog. I really love mixing prints and this was proof of that.

Blazer - Halogen
Pants - Daughters of the Revolution (Anthropologie)
Necklace - Etsy
Bag - Cynthia Rowley
Bracelet - Target

The next outfit is my take on a minimalistic look that some people pull off so well. I really do prefer color in an outfit so I decided to use my green bag for a pop.

Blouse and Shorts - TJMaxx

Necklace - Sarah Aghili

Watch - BCBG Generation

Bag - Cynthia Rowley

Shoes - Forever 21

Dress - H&M

Purse - DSW, Rings - H&M

Necklace - Mijourne

Baekgaard Accessories for Sale

The now defunct Baekgaard company once sold accessories and fine leather goods. The pieces below are up for sale as a group. Their original price was $120 but I am asking for $60 plus an additional $10 for shipping within the U.S. (additional costs for UK shipping). If you are interested in the group email me at bm628825@gmail.com. Like I said, the company is defunct so you will be seeing less and less of well-crafted accessories like these.

My favorites...

Vintage Find: Blue Leather Skirt

I found a true treasure while at the Goodwill this past weekend. This blue leather skirt from the 80's was just calling out my name and I had to get it. Was it more expensive than normal because it is real leather? Nope. It cost me $3.75. Jealous?

Nila Anthony Bags

If you are looking for a cute bag with a low price tag, look no further than Nila Anthony. The bags have a high end appearance but truth be told they are environmentally friendly made of products such as vegan leather. All bags are under the $100 price point which is a steal for something that is both chic and humane. The bags come in a variety of categories and below are some of my favorites.

Having a Neon Moment!

One of my first personal style pictures in a LONG time. As you can see I am wearing a neon cardigan and shoes!This is a huge trend this spring. Anyone can pull an outfit like this off, but if you are on the shy side you could always replace the highlighter yellow cardigan with a black one or replace the hot pink shoes with a black pair. I would love to see how you wear your neon! Feel free to send pictures to bm628825@gmail.com!

A Little Fashion Quote for Your Friday

“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.”
—Miuccia Prada

Keep this in mind when trying to make a good first impression. We live in a society of instant gratification, so we often think that what we see is what we get. The next time you are out in public pay attention to how you label people. It’s possible that you don’t even realize you are doing it. Better yet, before you leave the house, take a look in the mirror and ask yourself, “How will people label me?” Do I think our society should be this way? No. But it’s just the way things are so dress to impress and remember to smile.

How to Wear This Spring's Trends: Peplum

Peplum is defined as a short section attached to the waistline of a blouse, jacket, or dress. It is also one of the hottest trends for spring. If you have a very slim frame and are yearning for a curvier look, peplum is the right choice for you. It can really give a body the illusion of fuller hips.
