There are some styles that just never fall out of fashion. Who doesn’t love a chic equestrian look? The elegance of a riding jacket and the timelessness of a pair of riding boots keeps this look relevant. I will admit that the silhouette of actual riding pants are not very flattering but they can be easily substituted with a pair of skinny jeans or even faux leather leggings for an extra kick.
I found this gorgeous blazer during a semi-annual sale at Nordstrom over a year ago. I was smitten by the tails on the back and the faux leather accents.
Usually I wear black or brown skinny jeans with this outfit but decided to switch it up a little bit by wearing these army green ones by Trafulac.
What classic look do you love?

There are so many great things to love about fall. Football, festivals, and my favorite….boot weather! As much as I long for summer after a long winter, I think I look forward to cease all the sweating and the need to cozy up in a warm sweater a little more. Hence, my idea of the perfect fall uniform. First item is an open-front cardigan. This is a great transition before needing and actual jacket. I personally like ones that have a draping effect for a little more sophisticated look. Second item, which I think everyone has, is a nice pair of dark wash jeans. Preferably skinny ones that will tuck nicely into your third item….boots! I am the queen of high heels but I actually prefer the style of riding boots the most. A stiletto bootie is great for a night out but you will get a lot more wear out of a classic, tall leather boot. Finally, top off the look with a patterned scarf for some extra flare. And there you have it….your official fall uniform.
I had the great pleasure of celebrating my first wedding anniversary this weekend! I was feeling nostalgic and wore a Fab’rik maxi dress I had not worn since returning home from our honeymoon. We traveled to Phuket Thailand, Singapore, and Tokyo and it was very tropical during that time of the year. I packed a lot of light and flowy dress to prepare for the heat. I love the bold pattern and bright colors of the dress. It’s just so uplifting and I will forever have happy memories every time I wear it.
Phuket, Thailand was absolutely gorgeous. Here we are at Phi Phi island where the Leonardo DiCaprio movie “The Beach” was filmed. Pictures just don’t do this place justice.
We stayed at the Trisara resort in Phuket which is absolutely spectacular. This was the view from our private villa and infinity pool. It was really hard to leave this place.
We started our anniversary on a positive note by attending church. We came home and relaxed before heading out to a scrumptious dinner at The Optimist. If you love seafood, definitely check this place out. It took me the longest time to decide what to get because their menu is packed with so many different varieties of fresh fish. We loved everything we ate and the service was great!
When we came home we popped some champagne and attempted to eat the top of our wedding cake as tradition dictates. It surprisingly tasted okay but neither one of us could get over the idea of eating a one year old piece of cake.
Here’s to one year down and many years of marriage to come!
I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a birthday party of friend of my husband last weekend. What made the party extra special was that it was a Harlem Renaissance theme party!!! Once I heard about this weeks prior my creative juices started flowing. That period of fashion is hands down my favorite era. I’ve always felt like that was the time I should have been around for. It was a time when men were dapper gentlemen and women were sophisticated ladies at all times. I look at old pictures and it looks as if women dressed up just to go grocery shopping! A far cry from how we look shopping today. I also love the style icons of that time such as Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Josephine Baker. Here are a couple of looks from the party
So often, life imitates art. I used my costume inspiration for a wedding we attended the next day!
