I've been eyeing this Sequin Maxi Skirt from Piperlime for a while now.  I wish this skirt was here sooner after admiring J.Crew's 2011 Spring Collection, I was absolutely in love with this skirt.  Good thing about the above option is that it's only $198 instead of the uber expensive J.Crew option.  After coming across the above image on Pinterest, I knew I had to Grab this Style!  This skirt is great for the upcoming holidays styled like this or even with a big chunky sweater.  The boots play nicely off the dressiness of the skirt to kinda tone it down a notch.  I added a few options for rings, bracelets and necklaces - all of which compliment the whole look.  Enjoy and please let me know if you are loving sequins again this holiday season!

I'm so excited to finally start wearing my faux leather leggings.  I've wanted a pair since last year and never found any I like, until now.  This pair from Nordstrom is perfect.  They are still a little long (as I'm only 5' tall) but it's not a problem if they bunch up a little around my ankle.  What's great about these is that they have a matte shine, rather than a sparkly shine.   I prefer the matte version.  This way, I can pair them with any top or blouse I want.  Layering with a chiffon piece works perfectly (like I did here).  This Phillip Lim for Target Blouse worked great with this look.  I was surprised at how much I liked this top considering I didn't buy anything else from his collection; although, I am still pondering over this Leopard Sweater Dress...AND it's now on sale!  What's your favorite brand of faux leather leggings?  I would love to know as I want to expand my collection.

J.Crew, you win again...at styling of course!  I'm always so inspired after looking at a J.Crew catalog.  It's probably because even with the simplest of pieces, the attention to detail of styling always seems to amaze me.  Let's start with the folding and cuffing of a basic button-up shirt.  I found this step-by-step guide on Pinterest a while back and just now read the article.  I'm glad I did so I can share it with you today.  You can find the story here - I just love the Who What Wear site!  Have fun with it and start looking chic in your own personally styled J.Crew look.

Kendra Scott's eighth boutique opened its doors this past august at the Shops of Legacy in Plano, TX.  This is the Austin-based jewelry designer's second store in DFW which is significantly larger than the other in the West Village spot.  Once again, she does not disappoint with a fully stocked color bar where you can customize a piece of jewelry.  It's so easy to get carried away from 26 gemstones and 23 jewelry silhouettes in both gold and rhodium silver settings to choose from.  The store is absolutely beautiful beyond wonder.  White furniture with gold accents everywhere, and her jewels alone perk the whole place up with its colorful vibrance.  Take a look below at the pictures of the store - you'll love it!  Just in case you didn't already know, in 2002 Kendra Scott founded her own company with only $500!  Amazing, right?!  How inspiring to now know that this global brand is currently being sold at top retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's.  We are so happy she is here in Plano, it is definitely a place to visit!

Today's Style Spotlight focuses 100% on Olivia Palermo's FAB looks.  Can you say très chic?  No matter the event, time of day or even the season, this girl always looks put together.  With her effortless way of layering in the fall and winter months to her flirty blouse and flared skirt look for spring and summer, there's nothing she can't pull off.  I can tell her go-to look is of a neutral palette (which she rocks) or a bright pop of color.  Pretty sure she's wearing this peacoat in yellow above.  I love mixing neutrals in my wardrobe; however, I tend to go bold with various color combos.  Fur is also a go-to accessory for her, whether it be a jacket, vest or clutch - she loves her fur!  How fun is this vest?  Totally Olivia's style.  Olivia Palermo is undoubtedly one of my favorite style icons of all time.  I should have definitely included her in my hair obsession post last week!  Some often forget how your hairstyle impacts your outfit.  Well it does...majorly!  Hers is ALWAYS impeccable.  If you're curious (I know I am), read this to find out exactly how her hair stylist creates this glossy look.  I can hardly stand how perfect her hair is in the first pic.  Wish my hair would part that flawlessly in the middle - mine parts on the side naturally darn it!  Who's your style icon?

Not too long ago I cut almost 12 inches off my hair.  I love it short now, but I have 
to admit, I miss my long hair.  Good thing is, it's growing really fast so I hope to have
 it back soon!  How gorgeous are these girls?  I mean...LOVE their hair!  Enjoy the long 
hair goodness and happy hump day everyone!

I love, love, love finding cute and pretty quotes on Instagram.  Here's a 
couple of my favorites.  I get very inspired from quotes like these especially 
when I'm writing or researching for a blog post.  I know, I know a lot are 
fashion related, but hey, what can I say...I'm a fashion blogger!  
What currently inspires you?

Talk about matching suits with a twist!  In every shape and form this trend will always look chic.  Here at Paris Fashion Week - cute suits, monochrome color palettes, head-to-toe prints and coordinated accessories: matchy matchy has never looked so good.  I just adore the matching printed jacket and skirt combo and even the flaired crop top look.  Très parisien!  Check out my picks below on my take of this fabulous trend -

1. Large Check Wrap Pencil Skirt with Blazer
2.  Black and White Paneled Trousers with matching Paneled Blazer 
3. Crazy for this Gold Jacquard Shorts Suit.  What I love is that it's paired with a bomber jacket!
4.  If you're feeling wild - Leopard Print Pencil Skirt Suit
5.  Florals everywhere still while wearing this Bold Floral Pencil Skirt Suit
6.  My love for geo prints have grown with these Soft Geo Print Pants paired with the matching Geo Print Blazer
