Rockin’ Pleats, Stripes & Leather 💋


You can look rocker and pretty in this pleated midi skirt, stripe shirt, and Moto jacket. I know the motorcycle jacket “trend” over skirts and dresses has been in fashion for many, many years; it is almost become a staple instead of a trend. When you use it sparingly I can really elevate a bland outfit into something interesting. when you take the jacket off this cute half shirt is also shoulder bearing, and looks demure yet coquettish paired with a midi pleated skirt. Use strip lashes and a hot pink or red lip for a punch of colour and sass.

Layers n’ Leopard 


I love fall fashion for the simple fact that you can create super interesting looks by layering. This long thin weight vest provides an elongating look that really pulls it altogether to a simple skinny Jean and print top. My love for hats continues, and this faux suede hat provide some colour variation that still goes with the outfit and provides a great contrast for my medium brown hair.  As per usual this is a slightly trendy look that won’t break the bank, if you don’t already shop at Ardene you are missing out on great low cost, of the moment fashion pieces that helped to bring classic looks to life and stay relevant.

Whimsical Print 

I always gravitate towards a whimsical print; whether it’s birds, flowers, cats, butterflies, you name it! I think it creates such visual interest in an unusual way that really elevates your look from bland and boring to outstanding. I found this dress at Winners and fell in love with the 1970s vibe of it, the pleated mid length skirt is on trend for this season and I love the bowtie. 

Pairing this unusual dress like this with more classic pieces like a Moto jacket and booties help to ground the look and bring it from looking like you’re dressing up in a 1970s look to current and fabulous.

Fall Floral Skirt- 2 looks 

Finding a signature piece like this fall floral skirt from French Connection is so fabulous as it can be worn in many ways, dressed up or dressed down… it’s equally as cute. I’ve shown it as a daytime look for a casual work environment and for a night on the town with a deep plunging V-neck bodysuit and sexy strap up heels will make you feel and look like 1 million bucks!

Stripes, Sandals and Tassels 

This simple stripped off the shoulder dress is super sexy and could be over the top with heels and clutch but when paired with flat sandals and a tassel purse it brings visual interest to other areas of body to help decrease the overt sexiness and balences out the outfit. Nothing wrong with being sexy but there is a fine line of trashy vs classy.  Check it out…

Pin Up Dress Up 💋

As a teen and in my early 20’s I struggled to accept my hourglass shape; I used to lament “if only I was born 1950’s! My hourglass body would be in style” -these were the days of 1990’s fashion, the waifs. 

Now, as an over 40 year old woman, I appreciate my curves and am thankful for them. And for you hourglass honeys out there, embrace your shape and dress FOR it. This full circle skirt is perfect for us, highlights our tiny waists and provides a bakenced look. The bright tomato red sleeveless top looks fab with it. Toss on some red lipstick and your transformation to pin up girl is complete 💋

Bohemian Casual Cool 😎 

I really need to get a life…so many cute outfits to wear! This off the shoulder peasant blouse and jeans are laid back but pulled together. Toss your hair up in a messy bun, throw on some red lipstick and you have one cool, slightly boho succinct look.
