I just love the velvet trend that is going on this fall. This Michael Stars velvet tee from Alysa Rene Boutique feels amazing against my skin. In typical Michael Stars fashion, all of his tees are incredible affordable luxury that last forever!

I am absolutely smitten with this black and white abstract top! It looks like a combination of marble and splatter paint, but the beaded v-neck detailing adds a pop of glam to this day to night perfect top! I wore it to coffee with a girlfriend, and then to dinner with my gentleman.

Find this top and other great day to night or date night tops at Alysa Rene Boutique at Park Place in Leawood or online here.

I am a girl who gets really into working out for about a week two days and then it rains or I get too sore and stop. It goes in spurts like this for months, making goal training impossible and that “shelf booty” everyone is trying to achieve with one million squats- not in the cards. That is until I was introduced to CYSM a shapeware company that take your God-given body and just lifts it a little bit in all the right places. These jeans take my tiny booty from a passing nod to a “she did her squats” booty by just lifting in the hamstring area and sitting high on the waist. These jeans are so comfortable and give you a little extra swagger in your strut. Bonus-how cute are these pockets? Loving them.

I paired these jeans with a dressier grommet trimmed top with a cute bell sleeves, some chunky fabulous heels, my favorite silver cross-body purse, and an easy pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses for a fun coffee date.

This dress is absolutely killer! It makes me feel like a total Rock n Roll babe. It is a custom shirt dress made by my good friend, Christian Michael, who launched his first women’s line sHe by Christian Michael last Fall at Kansas City Fashion Week after many years of showing his beautiful menswear creations. I love the contrast of the rich red peonies against the deep black, and the longer length in the back is so key in giving interest, while keeping you nice and covered up.

Since this dress is a knockout and the obvious focal point, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple with strappy black heels, white Brynn Hudson earrings, and a pair of mirrored sunglasses just for fun. (My KLASSE 14 watch/bangle combo made it in there too, because I’ve been wearing it on repeat lately!)

Thank you, Christian Michael – I’m IN LOVE.

I have grown quite fond of the company 7 Charming Sisters! This “Golden Gathering” necklace is part of “Paula-The Executive’s” collection. This necklace can spice up a plain tee or top of a little black dress at a cocktail event.It has a sparkling gold finish (almost rose gold) and the chicest (and easiest to use) lobster clasp that allows for various lengths!

Now, how crazy is this top! I love the insanely large and structured ruffles that are attached to this otherwise plain white tee. BONUS: Right now, this top is 50% off!

Can we talk about how awesome this necklace is? It’s from this amazing company called 7 Charming Sisters — each of the 7 “sisters” are co-workers and have different styles, and therefore different jewelry collections (this necklace from Kimmie-Life of the Party’s collection.) I just love the edginess of this necklace. I have paired it with one of my new favorite tops (under $20) that I have been wearing on rotation! I hope your weeks are off to a great start! Thanks for stopping by.
