Missoni for Target: Chevron Chic

In anticipation of the Peter Pilotto for Target collection launch next weekend, I was inspired to wear one of my previous favorite Target collaborations, Missoni for Target.  Everyone probably remembers the frenzy that ensued when this collection launched.  Stores were sold out in just a few hours and the website shutdown.  Total mayhem!  I was fortunate enough to get several beautiful pieces including this matching sweater and knit skirt ensemble.  Although I love the iconic Missoni chevron print, it’s hard to pull off a head-to-toe print so I broke it up with a solid black turtleneck and tights.  It’s such a fun and flirty look.  What do you think?  Did you walk away with some fab pieces from this collection?

Baby! It’s Cold….

Baby! It’s cold!  That’s probably the understatement of the year.  In light of the polar vortex we are experiencing down here in the south, I was inspired to feature an appropriate cold weather look.  Just because it feels like Antarctica outside doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy while battling the elements.  A classic fair isle sweater is a great festive winter staple.  The variety of colors that are available in the pattern make pairing this sweater simple and fun.  Of course, no cold weather look would be complete without a warm, down, puffer coat.  A belted style coat provides an otherwise bulky silhouette a feminine shape, and is so chic.  I love fur accents on anything to add a little luxe.  I have been coveting a pair of Sorel boots for a while but have not pulled the trigger.  This winter blast may just give me that nudge I need to cop a pair.  Lastly, top off the look with winter hat with ear flaps to keep you warm.

Peter Pilotto for Target is Coming!

Unless you have been living under a rock, every fashionista knows Peter Pilotto for Target is the next amazing designer collaboration for Target.  Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos are the two visionaries behind the line. They truly have a gift for creating and mixing extraordinary  prints and marrying them with interesting silhouettes.  Their stunning designs have been seen on celebs like my favorite, Kerry Washington.  The collection for Target promises to embody the same colorful and vibrant feel of their usually highly expensive line.  I have chosen a few of my favorites to show.  I’m absolutely dying over their dresses and that short suit will be mine!  Check it out and tell me which is your favorite?

Shoes to Covet: Alejandro Ingelmo

You know how when you come across something great and you feel the need to share it with the world?  That’s how I feel about Miami-born cuban designer, Alejandro Ingelmo.  He comes from a long line of impeccable shoe craftsmanship starting with his great grandfather in Spain.  Alejandro launched his line of women’s shoes in 2006 and fashionistas around the world gravitated to his sexy, sleek aesthetic.  He was even recognized by the CFDA two years after his launch.  Of course, his shoes are pricey.  One day Ill be able to walk into his boutique and buy one of each shoe, but until then, I’ll have to settle for window shopping :-)

Get the Look: Olivia Palermo

I finally found the perfect pair of black over-the-knee boots!  Now I’m considering all the different ways to style them.  My go to has been to wear them over skinny jeans with a blazer but I’ve been searching for some more ideas.  Insert…Olivia Palermo. This style icon’s covetable fashion sense is emulated by fashionistas all over the world.  I saw this simple look in Instyle magazine and thought it was a great look to share.  What I love most about the look is its simplicity.  Olivia tends to dress very understated.  She has the distinct talent of wearing trends without looking trendy.  Her two statement pieces, the jacket and the boots, are offset with simple leggings and cardigan. The addition of the feminine blouse and belt balance the ruggedness of the jacket forming a beautifully balanced and chic look.

Detox 101: The Master Cleanse- Update

The Master Cleanse

I have completed the master cleanse!  10 days later and 10 lbs lighter and feeling great! It truly was not as hard as I thought it would be.  I was never tired or hungry.  In fact, by day 3, I had lost the taste for food.  This is exactly what I wanted to accomplish from the cleanse.  I wanted to clean my palate so I could start fresh with a healthier diet and lifestyle.  I’m  no longer craving my previous weaknesses like Zaxby’s, bread, or sweets.  I also haven’t had any alcohol in two weeks and I don’t even miss it!! During my cleanse, I spent an ample  amount of time researching healthy recipes for every meal of the day and snacks.  My goal is to avoid eating any packaged foods as much as I can.  So far, I’ve made my own hummus, protein cereal bars, and vegetable soup and I’m just getting started.  Hopefully, I can keep this up but the recipes I have found are so delicious that it shouldn’t be too hard.  I will be sure to post some of my favorite recipes in the future.  I feel good after doing this cleanse, but make sure you check with your doctor before trying this cleanse or any other cleanse or new diet.

Stay healthy!
