Straight From The Runway - My 9 Favorite Wedges For Summer 2014

The wedge shoe is a classic summer staple that dates back to ancient Greece. The design often has a sole that is much thicker at the back than the front, making it more comfortable than a high heel. That is one of the main reasons why I love a great wedge. You get the added height without the discomfort. For Spring/Summer 2014 runway designers have offered us plenty of beautiful designs to choose from. Below are a few of my faves! 

Glamour Girl - The Life Of The Party

" She who leaves her essence of glitter and glamour is always remembered. Sparkle on you unforgettable girl." author unknown
There is always at least one girl at a party that when she enters a room all eyes are on her. She exudes glamour and undefinable style. She's a glamour girl who is always the life of the party and is the inspiration for today's set.

Trend Report - Rock Studs For Spring

I came across this stunning image of Alyssa Miller in a studded leather jacket and was intrigued. It made me wonder about how I could style studs for Spring.

I ended up styling this cool outfit of the day featuring a cute black mesh studded hi-low top from HerPanche. I paired the studded top with River Island jeans, Metallic Connection sunglasses, and Rebecca Minkoff Salma booties.

My Faves From Halston Heritage

Founded in the 1960s, the Halston label took the fashion industry by storm. Halston used his signature materials of jersey, cashmere, and suede to reinvent the jumpsuit, the shirtdress, and the classic caftan, permanently leaving his mark on fashion.  Today Halston Heritage is an approachable lifestyle brand - mixing legacy with a modern edge to create an effortless women's collection.

Office Style - Respect Is Earned

To achieve great office style I have always believed that you have to follow three rules. First, leave the sexiness at home. You want to dress like your capable of managing whatever the day holds and not like you are hunting for a date. Second, always look modern and up to date with what is currently in style. You never want to appear too trendy. Save those looks for outside of the office. Third, always add a little bit of your personality to your outfit, but make sure it never overpowers the whole look. In today's set, I showcased how to have great office style by incorporating my three rules. Vibrant pastels are in this season. I used this bright pastel orange River Island skirt to brighten up a basic white Jil Sander blouse. I added a sleek Michael Kors clutch, McQ by Alexander McQueen shoes, and a Modern Curated Collection bangle. A Burberry Heritage trench is always a classic and was a chic way to complete the look.

I Dream Of You In Color - My 6 Faves From the Veronica Beard Spring 2014 Collection

Veronica Beard's Spring 2014 Collection offered the perfect bold pieces to help you transition from Spring into Summer. The highlights from the collection were their use of neoprene, leopard prints, denim, and leather. They even took it one step further by pairing those elements with bold yellow and see-through jackets. The combinations were exciting, fun, chic and very wearable.

One of my favorite pieces from the Veronica Beard 2014 collection was the yellow neoprene sleeveless vest/top. In their presentation, it was originally paired with yellow slim fit pants, but I decided to switch it up a bit. I love the color but even I have my limits. I'm not big on rocking such a bright yellow from head to toe. I toned it down by pairing the top with THVM Denim Twilight Hi-Rise Skinny Jeans.  A pair of Fahrenheit Colorblocked Heels and a Roberto Cavalli Graphic Print Clutch were the perfect finishing touches to complete the ensemble.
