Fresh Picks to Follow – Black and Blue


If you’re like me, I’m sure at some point in your life you’ve heard numerous fashion faux pas, such as don’t wear white after Labor Day, never mix patterns, don’t wear denim on denim and don’t wear black and blue together.  As you know, many fashionistas have long believed that those fashion faux pas are outdated and that it’s time to break the rules.  One rule that will be broken this fall is the color combination of black and blue.  These two colors have been paired together by major designers like Carolina Herrera, DKNY and Marc by Marc Jacobs.  To achieve this look, try grabbing a cobalt blue or navy blue top and pair it with black slacks or a skirt.  For this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, here are my top 10 ways to take your black and blues combination to anything other than bruises. What do you think about this color trend? Let me know in the comments.

OOTD: One Fall Day


A few days ago, I woke up to cool, crisp, fall weather and I loved every second of it.  The reason I say every second of it because it was very short lived.  The cool weather only lasted about 4 hours.  And by the time I left work and walked to my car, I was extremely hot in my sweater and nearly sweating my tail off.  I couldn’t believe that the weather had warmed up to the high 80’s.  And I know that I really shouldn't have been so surprised by the hot weather, but I was nonetheless.  Although, the cooler weather has not made its way down to Florida permanently, I’m glad that I had the chance to enjoy one fall day even if it was for a few hours. Enjoy the rest of your week!

OOTD: Sunny Day


Happy Monday everyone!  I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  Yesterday, I met up with a friend of mine who’s in town visiting family this weekend.  She’s getting married next year, so we stopped by a couple of bridal shops to look at a few bridesmaids’ dresses.  I tried them one and I think she found one that she’s happy with for right now.  That has to be a huge relief for the bride.  It’s one less task for her to worry about for now.  Anyways, here’s an outfit that I wore yesterday during another hot, sunny day here in Florida.  I’m still trying to squeeze in as much of my summer outfits as possible until I have to switch over to my fall clothes.  The forecasters say that the weather is suppose to drop a little bit this week.  Dropping as low as 62 degrees most mornings and warming up to the mid-80s each day.  Not too shabby.  I’m pretty sure that this isn’t going to last too long, but I’ll enjoy it while it’s here.  How's the weather in your neck of the woods?  Let me know all about it in the comments.
