Velvet Green


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!

Interest in Abstract


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.

Live Colorfully


“Live Colorfully” is Kate Spade’s mantra, but it might as well be mine! I love colors, and I really love the color combination of hot pink and orange! This Jules Reid top (told you I love these Montauk tops…they fit and feel soo good) in hot pink ikat, pairs nicely with jeans and my orange straw bag. I also paired it with gold heeled sandals for a little bit of a luxe look and Brynn Hudson earrings (on sale for 30% off right now).

Flashes of Red


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.

Black IKAT


Today, I’m showing off another gorgeous top from Jules Reid. I love how easy these tops are, and the material y’all: the material is just FABULOUS! I went with this simple black and cream/white IKAT top, because it’s the perfect now and later top. When the temperature starts to drop, I can throw this on with a little jacket, a black mini skirt, tights, and boots, and be styled up for the fall and winter.




Jules Reid is hands down one of my all-time favorite designers. The fabric she uses is exquisite and feels as good as it looks. The dreamy garments she makes flatter a myriad of shapes, sizes, and ages. I was so obsessed with this Montauk top (featured in Town & County, and out of production–so grab one of the last few while you can), that I bought all three patterns. I love them all, but this one in the fabric “Dancing Hat”, is my favorite. The vibrant colors not only look great, but they photograph just as well. You will want to check out Jules Reid’s website for this top and more great pieces on sale now!

Now let’s talk about how amazing my watch is from KLASSE 14. They have gorgeous watches with matching bangles that are truly treasures. I chose the OTKO Rainbow White watch with the matching bangle, because the metal is so unique and the white leather is perfect for summer!

Golden Gathering


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.
