Altuzarra

The one thing that I love the most is when Target has designers bring in a collection for this company. Altuzarra is the latest in which I found a beautiful pair of boots. Pointed, laced, and absolutely fabulous!

I can wear these with just about anything, though I personally love to wear them with dresses and skirts.
However, if I am wanting a more laid back look, I turn to these trusted boots by Candie’s. Paired with boyfriend jeans, these give me a look I love as well.image

A Night Out On The Town

With the weather getting cooler, especially with my recent visit to Virginia, I pondered what to wear on a night that was dipping in the fifties. For a southern girl, temperatures in the fifties, including a brisk wind, is a cold night! However, I knew that we would be enjoying a nice dinner, and if anything the red wine would help to keep me warm. So I decided on a long sleeve, knit dress with a low collar. I paired that with a black, stylish clutch and a pair of very sexy heels. I completed my look with a motorcycle jacket to add an edgier look to my dress. That being said, not only did I feel like I looked like a million bucks, I was able to keep warm as well.image
Though it exposed my toes, these heels were on point! I love them!

Chunky Sweater and a Chic Leopard Clutch

I am loving the chunky sweater look for the season. It is comfortable, fashionable, and oh-so-comfy! I added a leopard print clutch to add a punch to this simple outfit. Along with the leather brown boots, it makes for a relaxed evening out.

Peter Pilotto

I normally don’t write a blog twice in one week, but I was so excited about Peter Pilotto’s line at Target I just had to share my findings!
First off, I find it amazing that there is a store where women can purchase nice, name brand clothing at an affordable price. Target has done an amazing job when it comes to having various articles of clothing and accessories by different designers. In the past year, I have aquired a scarf by Marc Jacobs, purses by Oscar de la Renta and Phillip Lim, and now a skirt and top by Peter Pilotto. For someone on a teacher’s salary, this is a dream come true! When I do invest in designer pieces, and I am talking about walking into the designer stores themselves- never knock offs, I usually purchase purses. My favorites are Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and the occasional Coach. To me, purchasing these items are an investment, not that clothes aren’t. But I need something with staying power for my day to day job. And being in front of the board with markers and designer clothes makes me nervous! So when Target started promoting all of these wonderful designers, and the above mentioned are just a few, I was overcome with pure joy!
The skirt below is my absolute favorite piece from the collection. I can dress it up with a black blouse and blazer during the last few months of our winter, or I can pair it with a white blouse, cobalt blue jacket (for contrast) and a necklace within the same color family to pull it all together. Affordable prices and designer pieces makes me one happy girl!

My RZ Obsession

Not only am I a fan of Rachel Zoe as a stylist, but I am also a huge fan of her beautiful, glamorous accessories. I mean, let’s be honest, you can’t get more fun and fabulous than Rachel Zoe! I particularly love to wear this bracelet with a chunky, knit sweater. It’s also a piece that I can wear with something more chic for a night out. And without fail, every time I wear it I find myself continually receiving compliments. The best thing about this bracelet is that it makes a statement all on its own. So having to worry about any other accessory isn’t even an issue. Paired with my small diamond earrings, I simply throw it on and go!
