Spring 2011: What I Want

The weather is warming up here in Nashville and it has me going crazy for a Spring wardrobe update. Although I grew up the only girl with three brothers, I am still a girly girl at heart which is why you'll find me in lots of floral prints and delicate jewelry this season. I also want dresses and skirts I can wear all through summer but layer up with some lightweight jackets and sweaters starting now. I hope you find some inspiration and are as psyched up to shed those bulky layers as I am :)

Rihanna...Star Style I'm Feeling Right Now

Where do you even begin with introducing the topic of Rihanna's style? I'll start by admitting I am absolutely in love with her red hair. It's not an easy color to pull off but she does it flawlessly.

She does a phenomenal job of balancing her bold color with a neutral wardrobe. It is nothing short of a knockout look...

Man Cardis...Fashion Fiend Moment

I don't often pay too much attention to what trends men are rocking nor does it matter to me if a romantic prospect has a keen sense of style. However I have been noticing a lot of studs in cardigans and a slew of guys shopping in my store looking for the style.

My drool-worthy cardigan compilation...

Clockwise from Top L: Ryan Reynolds, Drake, Shia Labeouf, John Krasinksi, Pharrell, Caleb Followill, Drake (yeah he's so good he gets two features)

Free People opens at Green Hills Mall in Nashville

In honor of the Free People store opening in Green Hills this Friday, I compiled my favorite of their looks. This brand is really great at giving us a full range of styles...all the way from absolute casual to knock out dressy. You know where I'll be tomorrow and you know what's on my shopping list...

1. We The Free Jersey Raglan Top in Green $68.00 
Love the play of tomboy and girly girl. A boyish baseball tee with lace details.

2. Varsity Pullover in Black $68.00
This sweatshirt epitomizes the reason I love Free People. They are so great at taking a wardrobe staple from dull to dramatic.

Surprise! The stripes are leopard print. Enough said.

4. We The Free Scoop Neck Tunic in Grey $58.00
A great go-to top...anywhere, anytime with some skinny jeans and boots.

1. Ruffle Up Half Slip in Blush $38.00
Free People has quite a few bodycon mini's. It's a layering look for which I am going crazy. Tres chic!

2. Ruffle Bodycon Dress in Black $88.00
Screams New Year's Eve 2010. Flirty ruffles on a sexy mini.

3. Abstract Printed Knit Dress in Lime/Black $98.00
Perfect in winter with a sweater, black tights and heels. Perfect in summer with flats.

4. Taureg Off The Shoulder Tunic in Charcoal $98.00
Looks absolutely rocking with the bodycon dress underneath.

5. Circus Party Sweater Cami in Black $128.00
A tad pricey for my budget, but the detailing throughout is gorgeous.

Digging into my Rachel Zoe vocabulary, I will describe what Free People is doing with long sleeve knits as a great moment. Cuff embellishments are such a fresh way to update a classic silhouette. Each style needs no description...just links below.

2. We The Free V-Neck Freckles Sweater in White/Blue $128.00

3. We The Free Everything's Rosey Tunic in Taupe/Floral $68.00

Hilary and her many scarves

Fall is in full swing which has me pulling my scarves out of the closet. No one pulls off the look better than Hilary Duff. She keeps it simple and voluminous exuding carefree glamour. Here's a little of my inspiration...

Fall leather jacket frenzy inspired by Sarah Palin

You read right...I said it. A little over a month ago I happened to be watching Dancing with the Stars (mostly because I had not yet commandeered the remote that evening). Good old Tom Bergeron was interviewing Miss Sarah Palin. My jaw almost hit the floor. She looked a little more fashionista; a little less politician.

Immediately I knew I had to do a post all about the perfect brown leather jacket for fall. Though this necessary fall wardrobe stable can get a bit pricey, keep the style classic and you will be rocking leather luxury for a lifetime.

Kenna-T Riveted Leather Jacket $298.00 at Nordstom

Fallon Leather Bomber $300.00 at Abercrombie

Carrie Underwood talks Women's Health flaunting some fabulous jewelry

Any and all of my friends know that Carrie Underwood is my ultimate celebrity idol. To me she is today's quintessential walking, talking Barbie doll. Not only is she gorgeous, but her fashion sense is impeccable. So it's no surprise that I picked up the October issue of Women's Health.

What really caught my eye and sparked the inspiration for this post is the outfit she sports on the inside spread. The apparel itself is perfectly basic -- shorts paired with a crew neck cashmere sweater. This combination creates the opportune fashion backdrop for showcasing some drool-worthy jewelry. Along with my girl crush on Carrie, it is widely common knowledge that I am a jewelry fiend and can almost always be seen sporting more than just a few bracelets. Presto! Shopping list inspiration...

1. Mixed Media Chain Bracelet

2. Chunky Chain Bracelet

3. Multi-Strand Beaded Bracelet
