All Tied Up

Pirates love this detail.


Sailors too.  Luckily land-locked designers are fully embracing this too!

Monroe’s white lace up gives a major refresh to the perfect white tee.



Apparently Alexander Wang is all about this trend with this entertaining Spring 2016 cotton sweater.  Is it just me or is this THE ultimate baseball sweater?


Equipment’s cotton lace up blouse (ahem – totally on sale right now!) is a fantastic addition that will carry right into the Fall!

Alexander McQueen’s mini dress has a sporty take on the lace up detail that screams summer!


Clearly this dress would be THE one piece wonder packed in that holiday suitcase, slap a pair of gladiator sandals and run from the beach to cocktails to dinner!

All that laces up doesn’t go in the front.  Take Red Valentino’s flirty black coat with the lace detail in the back.


This coat would look phenomenal all dressed up OR paired with a favorite pair of jeans.  That sounds like a perfect purchase!


Jonathan Simkhai’s Pre-Spring lace up sleeved blouse is beyond on trend – it is everything.


Slip off the blazer in the middle of the meeting – yup, even if it is a bake sale meeting, PTO meeting or an actual board meeting – these sleeves will Tie It All Up!


Trapped at home with a sick little one?  Soothing a sad sniffling sweet pea?  No worries, you can still look killer while enjoying cabin fever!


Old school Adidas striped track pants are EVERYWHERE for Spring 2016.  Grab them now and strut strut strut.


Add a Zara denim shirt  on top


and a cute knit hat from The Third Piece and boom – Dr. Mommy is rocking it fierce in the ‘burbs.


A t-shirt from T by Alexander Wang in papaya will add instant luxe and sunshine to any grey winter day.  The Outnet almost always has a smattering to offer, so why not save a little…and then buy more.


MOTHER denim’s The Dropout Fray (worn with bare feet) will make you believe it’s summer, simply add a light cashmere sweater and a smile!


Pajamas just for bed is so yesterday, or at least last night!  Piamita’s silk cherry pajama top is the epitome of the cherry on top!


Just don’t let anyone wipe a runny nose on a dry clean only!



Furry Festivities

What is cuter than a furry accent?

The quickest fancy fix for any outfit, especially during the Holiday Season! How about a furry sleeved sweater at a ridiculously appealing $49 from Nastygal?


Faux or Fur, whichever makes you happy!


Add a furry keychain to your bag for a little surprise. Fendi is the master of the furry monster key chains at $850!


Gucci fur lined mules will make any outfit EXPLODE into a different stratosphere of style!


Or maybe the mink pompom lace up sandals from Gucci (or be really greedy and get both!)


Pair an animal print faux fur jacket ($94 at Neiman Marcus Last Call) with a simple white t-shirt, add leather jeans and stilettos and prepare for an onslaught of mistletoers!

Sleeveless Wonder!

Fall is one crazy season!

 Jacket, no jacket, layers, stripping off the layers, OY!

Invest in a sleeveless vest.

Put a tank top underneath.  Pair it with a long sleeved t-shirt.  Add a thin cashmere layer. A tailored shirt works too.
Jeans, leggings, even a tailored knee length skirt works with this piece.  Add a pair of statement boots and vamanos mamacita!


Budget friendly options available if your name isn’t Amal Clooney or Gwyneth Paltrow.  Current faves include Trouvè at Nordstroms for $78 and  ASOS for $72.

Who Needs Sleeves?!?!

Red White Blue & You!

Happy Almost July 4th Weekend!


I decided to celebrate early to give you a last minute chance to overnight a cute outfit for the loooooong weekend.


RED is for Rosie.  Rosie Assoulin’s red for Resort 2016 is available now at Moda Operandi and practically begs for sparklers!


(reversecommuter’s red Rosie Assoulin pants are from the Spring 2015 Collection)


White belongs to Jonathan Simkhai (the SIGH is silent in his name but OHSO there in his clothes!).


His white cutout oxford dress is the perfect piece to take you from picnic to pier to fireworks!


Blue is all about ALC’s Santo Sleeveless Dress.  Can’t you just see yourself zipping around the corners in your antique convertible, scarf tied hair, racing to get to the party?!  Classic elegance and ease wrapped up in a sale price!

Raise the champs flute to the Red White and Blue, and while you are at it, celebrate you!!!!!!!
