Create28 / Under-Layered + Link-Up

rp_DSC_0431.jpg

Last week, I mentioned my most-used method of layering, over-layering.  I say most-used because when in doubt, throw a cardigan on over your outfit, am I right?!  But while I layer this way most frequently, under-layering is actually my favorite!  Whenever I think to throw a collared shirt underneath a sweater (like I've done here) or under a dress, I think yes!  I love this outfit! Apparently I really like wearing shirts underneath this sweater because I layered the exact same way one year ... Continue Reading...

Create28 / Perfect Pearls

The Limited Black Blazer

Happy Valentine's Day, my loves! Hope yours is full of love and being loved! Oh, how I love pearls. Multiple strands and differing sizes are my fave. I have to stop myself from pinning all the pearls when I'm on Pinterest. I was in J. Crew Factory outlet store the other day and I spied some fab pearls. I so wanted to purchase them but I sadly remembered I am on a shopping ban so I had to step away and settle on the inspiration for future looks. Currently, some of my favorite pieces make up ...

Create28 / Red & Pink + Link-Up

pink skirt

Okay, ya’ll, why do I have virtually no pink in my wardrobe? Why did I take the best pink sweater to Clothes Mentor...and of course, they bought that one? Is this craziness? I have no idea why pink is almost absent in my wardrobe. I have no idea. You know what else? I have very little red as well. What? I love red and people always tell me it’s a great color on me. Makes no sense. Do you have these colors in your wardrobe? Have you ever mixed them together? I had not mixed red and pink until ... Continue Reading...

I want to get back to family time so let's talk about Create28 real quick!  There isn't much better than a cozy sweater on a chilly day, am I right?!  And cable ... Continue Reading...

Create28 / Blazers

blazer

True story: I have avoided blazers since about the time we said good-bye to shoulder pads and the 80’s. Why? They just felt constricting to me. I felt confined and not able to move freely in a blazer or so I thought. In the last year or so, I have slowly begun to embrace blazers once again. Take note - Style Advice 101: I’m still avoiding shoulder pads and you should too, friend! {Windy day + cannot keep hair in place = sometimes you have to go with what you have in real life.} Keeping it ...

Create28 / Polka Dot Paradise

rp_DSC_0443.jpg

Today we're talking Polka Dots for Create28!  I would say that this is my second favorite print, right behind stripes, of course.  The polka dot piece that I've chosen to feature is my Express Portofino blouse that gets tons and tons of wear.  It's versatile and so easily remixable...you've actually already seen it this month!   My mom (who clearly has wonderful taste) gave this sweater to me for Christmas.  I love that I was able to unbutton the bottom of the sweater to give the ...
