Run Away With Me - Fall 2015 Men's Casual Style

The way to great style begins with the perfect basics especially when it comes to a casual outfit. I love seeing a man in a classic leather jacket, a t-shirt, and sporty pants. The key to this look is simplicity and a monochromatic color palette. Elevate your look with accessories by mixing comfortable clothing with a range of trendy and fun accessories that are perfect for fall.

A Mesmerizing Gaze - Tom Ford Beauty Fall 2015

As a fresh fashion season approaches the magical world of makeup and beauty is a fantastic way to boost your personal style. Today I will be showing you the latest look for fall with everything you need to recreate the look. One of the top beauty trends is a romantic twist on the smoky eye as showcased at the Tom Ford Fall 2015 Collection. The beauty equivalent of fashion's little black dress - smoky eyes are a powerful fusion of Hollywood glamour and rock 'n' roll edge. For fall the smoky eye is done in shades that are softer and keeps the focus on your beautiful gaze.

Animal Magnetism

Today I was in the mood to style a set for an adventurous night of fun. Rather you are rolling solo, kicking it with your girls or your man this look will keep you at the center of attention. This Strangers In Paradise Dress by Finders Keepers is a real statement piece. It adds an exotic element to any evening look with its monochromatic animal print. The wrap style skirt is elegantly draped, while a plunging neckline down the back is a stunning finish. Watch the gazes linger while you work the room in this stunning ensemble.

Round And Round We Go

Today's set was inspired by this image of iconic supermodel Pat Cleveland and her daughter (who is also a model) Anna Cleveland. I loved the artistic makeup and slicked backed top knots. They had a futuristic whimsical vibe going and I was feeling it. I centered the outfit around the dot theme of the makeup and the winged eyeliner. I found this Keepsake Spotted Dress that captured what I was going for. The polka dots were not sweet and the cut of the dress had a modern flair. It was absolutely perfect! Next, I had to figure out how to capture the futuristic whimsical vibe through the accessories. When I spotted this Emilio Pucci Neon Bag and Reiss Sandals I knew I had found what I was looking for. The end result is ladylike pieces with a bold twist thanks to vivid colors and bold prints.

Lust Worthy - Maticevski Structured Dress

I love a great structured dress because when it is cut properly it can flatter a woman's shape in the most beautiful way. The craftsmanship must be on point which gives it an artful elegance. So I was naturally entranced when I ran across this beautiful dress by designer Toni Maticevski. This dress just grabbed my attention so I made sure the accessories complemented it perfectly. Instead of adding my usual pop of color I decided to add a bold yet sophisticated Kotur clutch. The print adds a bit of visual interest, and a simple pair of earrings and heels complete the look.

Shake It Like A Salt Shaker

Urban sophistication meets bohemian chic with tiered fringe and sleek suede in this hot little number. I added simple, sleek and stunning accessories. The metallic cuff and sandals I paired the dress with are a must-have and gives a refined finish to the look. The snake embossed clutch with a turquoise stone embellishment adds an exotic flair to this feminine frock. The finishing touches are your hair and makeup. I loved the idea of loose bouncy waves and natural soft makeup to accentuate this lovely ensemble.

Fashion Stampede - Mammals Allowed

This elephant print dress was a fun little number I couldn't resist. It can be worn alone, as a cover-up or as a tunic over leggings. Whichever way you choose to wear it make sure to style it in a way that lets your personality shine. I styled the dress with leaf hoop chandelier earrings, a cobalt blue bag, and comfortable wooden heel slingbacks. All of the pieces stand out on their own but when thrown together it is a fashion stampede.

Jean Envy - It Is All About The Fit

I love a good pair of jeans that fit just right. Everyone has a jean shape that works perfectly for them, and for me, a slim fitting skinny jean with a bit of stretch is a must-have. I prefer a darker rinse with a mid-rise cut that ends right at the ankle like the Forever 21 Jeans featured below. You can wear it with sneakers, boot or heels and look fabulous. I like to pair them with classic staples that most of us already own or have in our closets such as a t-shirt, sunglasses, a fab bag and statement heels. The finished look is cool, casual, and chic.

Shark Attack - The Male Advantage

Today's set is for the fashionable man who likes to have a little fun with his style. I was really digging this casual Shark Tee and Blue Chinos from Express. I like that the shark print was on a small scale so it is not overwhelming or loud, but it is a bit of cheeky fun. I added a pair of classic Ray-Ban Sunglasses, a cool Fossil Watch, and comfortable Polo Ralph Lauren Sneakers. This is the perfect look to usher in the weekend.

Coastal Classics

As we enter the last days of summer I am drawn to any and everything that reminds me of the beach. Maybe subconsciously I'm trying to hold on to the sereneness and peace I feel when the warm sun hits my skin, but I'm pretty sure that the soothing and calm color scheme of the beach is part of the appeal as well. So when I ran across this beautifully designed room on Deepdale House's Pinterest page I immediately gravitated towards it. I couldn't find any information about who the decorator was so I decided to create a mood board replicating the original design. So don't let the summer slip away yet - bring the comfy elegance of coastal living into your home.
