Throughout the year I go through denim phases where I'm partial to one fit or another, and during spring, I usually gravitate towards flares. In a light or medium wash, they feel fresh, and my favorite way to wear them is with wedges (that stay pretty hidden) and an airy blouse. I picked up this pair recently at Nordstrom, and they've helped feed my Blank NYC addiction. They're a stretchy pull-on style and somehow maintain their shape throughout the day. I'm pretty much smitten. Add in this fun striped bag and a few silver jewels to finish off the look. Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
Every now and then a clothing line will really catch my eye, and right now, [BLANK NYC] has my attention. I've known about the brand for a while now, but have only recently begun exploring every fit and wash that I find. (Back in my denim PR days, I made it my business to know every competitor brand, but it certainly wasn't a normal practice to wear them.) In the pairs that I own, I've found that the fit and quality are definitely worth the more-than-reasonable price point. (Most styles retail under $100.) I started off with this vegan leather pair of skinnies that I wore. to. death. Then during fashion week I stopped into the Piperlime store and picked up these dark, clean skinnies. I'm in love with the color, and they've definitely become my go-to pair of skinnies. Earlier this week I scooped up these pull-on flares from Nordstrom, and I'm in love. They're so comfortable and flattering and just so happened to be the perfect length for me (the benefits of being tall). Now, I've started checking out their spring collection, and it's dangerous. I'm loving anything ripped and distressed and all of the vegan leather. If you haven't already, I'd definitely suggest taking a peek at the looks above. What are some of your go-to denim brands?

I don't do the denim on denim thing very often, but occasionally a gloomy day calls for a little Canadian tuxedo action. Break up the mixed blues with a stark white blazer and a contrasting handbag, and finish it all off with a pair of comfy leopard flats. These calfhair flats fold into their own little bag and are perfect for traveling or just those days when you could use a break from heels. I stashed these in my bag during Fashion Week, and they definitely came in handy more than a few times. This week I'm excited to team up with Cocorose London to give one lucky reader a pair of their own. Available in a ton of varieties and colors, there's definitely a shoe for every style. Enter below using the Giveaway Tools app, and cross your fingers (and toes!) - your feet will thank you! Good luck!
**Update: Congratulations to the winner of the Cocorose London Giveaway: Zoe Moneteleone! Thanks so much to everyone who entered, and stay tuned for more great giveaways!

Yesterday was definitely a warm and sunny one, so it seemed only appropriate to pull out the white denim. (Never too soon, right?) Lightweight layers on top were key for keeping my cool. With spring fast approaching, it's time to start switching up my fashion and beauty routines, and the latter can sometimes be a little tricky. If you're like me and want to chat spring beauty (and enter to win some sweet goodies from P&G while doing it), join me and the rest of the New Voices of Beauty (Naty, Katie, and Amy) along with Lucky Magazine tonight at 7pm EST for a Twitter party!

With the arrival of March, I've got one thing on my mind: spring. And more specifically, spring fashion. While I love the darker clothes of winter, nothing says fresh and new like an ivory and blush color palette. Recently I stopped in to T.J.Maxx for the usual browse and ended up coming home with this entire outfit. Once I found the blush skinnies (that fit like a glove and are beyond comfortable), an airy ivory blouse naturally came next, and the shoes, well, I couldn't say no. A favorite straw clutch and gold jewelry finished off the look. What spring pieces are you excited to add to your winter wardrobe?

Last night capped off awards season with the biggest fashion show of them all: The Academy Awards. The Oscars are always my favorite red carpet to watch because the stars tend to go for all-out glam, and last night's looks did not disappoint. Kerry Washington and Olivia Wilde (below) showed that dressing a bump can be oh-so-glam; Lupita Nyong'o continued her red carpet domination (and made us all cry with her acceptance speech); Kate Hudson reminded everyone of her serious red carpet power; and Charlize Theron killed it in standard Charlize fashion.
While beautiful pastels and metallics definitely had their place on the carpet last night, some of my favorite ladies stunned in head-turning black. Charlize, always a favorite of mine, was hands-down my best dressed of the night, but all of the women below deserve major credit for standing out in black. From a jewel-encrusted top to an eye-catching bow back to a fun lace peplum, the key to rocking these black looks is all in the details. Inspired by the red carpet, I created my own dark look and broke up the monotony by mixing textures. Finish the look with a sequin clutch and a bold pink lip. Looking back at this season's awards shows, how will you create your own red carpet inspired "One of a Kind Style"?

Inspired by my horrible hair in yesterday's post, I decided it was time for a much-needed trim. I scored a lucky last-minute appointment, and two hours later I was in the chair impulsively changing my mind from a trim to a full-on chop. It's a fun little change, and I'm glad I decided to just do it. This weekend I'm off to New York to meet up with these lovely ladies and shoot a fun little video. Praying I don't freeze to death, but I'm so excited to head back to New York. (Follow along on Instagram for fun snaps from my trip.) Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

Friday is finally here, and I'm so excited for the weekend. I'm taking advantage of a slight chill this morning with my favorite sweater dress of the moment (scored for $10 at H&M), fool-proof flats, and stacks of bracelets. Right now I'm loving these bold beaded bracelets from Kluster because they add a little color to an otherwise neutral look. By this afternoon it'll be 80 degrees, and I've got my sights set on the beach. (Sorry to those of you reading this in freezing weather!) Wishing everyone a great Friday and an amazing weekend.

Although Southern California seems to be stuck in this "high of 70 everyday" Twilight Zone, this morning was gloomy and just chilly enough for a little winter gear. (I'm not mad about missing out on the arctic freeze that has taken over the rest of the country, but sometimes I would like to actually get to wear my winter clothes.) I recently scored these Vera Wang boots on super sale at Marshall's, and I couldn't be happier. They fit like a glove and are comfortable for all-day wear. (Plus, they'll take the place of my old favorites that have been soled and resoled one too many times. Sigh.) Hope everyone is staying warm and having a great week!

Well it was a warm and beautiful Christmas at the beach, and I couldn't have asked for a better time with family and friends. In the mornings and evenings it's still cold enough for a few winter layers, so I decided to throw on three Christmas gifts at once (the shirt, sweater, and cape) yesterday for dinner and a little shopping. I love the plaid paired with the fuzzy (and ultra-cozy) sweater, and I figured I'd go monochromatic by topping the oxblood skinnies with the similarly-hued cape. Hope you had a great holiday week, and happy Friday, everyone!
