I have to say, it’s been such a fabulous week so far. You know how you just have some weeks that go right and great things happen – it’s been one of those! I’m not even talking huge things… just little things, but I think it’s wonderful to recognize and appreciate those. I adore the quote that reads, “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things”. I’d love to know, what’s one thing that’s happened to you this week that made you happy?

Something I loved about this week was guest blogging at Because Shanna Said So, while she’s away living it up on vacation in Mexico! I wanted to share what I wrote, because I hope you’ll like it too… it’s all about three major fashion trends and how to incorporate the ones you love into your wardrobe! Which trend do you like best?

When it comes to fashion, I’m really big on ensuring the pieces I buy are quite timeless. So the trends I’ve chosen to highlight are those I believe transcend seasons and will look polished, sophisticated and stylish on almost everyone – not just for now, but also for years to come…

This is one wardrobe staple I am completely addicted to. I have a real thing for blazers, because I adore how you can easily throw one on and take your look from casual, to perfectly polished in a second. They are beyond versatile and work with almost anything – I wear mine with everything including jeans, shorts and dresses!

I am such a girly girl, so when all this military style was coming into fashion, I wasn’t sure how I could wear it. But I think the key to fabulous style isn’t following a trend explicitly, it’s about learning what works for you and putting your own stamp on it! I glammed up a chic army green blouse with my favorite leopard print belt (on sale!) and a statement necklace. Of course, a requisite pop of red lipstick (color #13 Le Orange) completes the outfit!

 I think we all have those extra special pieces in our wardrobe. For me, it’s this leather jacket! I bought it last winter and couldn’t wait to bring it out again this year. The leather is buttery soft and I’ve never had a jacket this warm. After my experience, I became somewhat obsessed with leather jackets and bought a second one! I believe they are so timeless and although not cheap, a quality piece with a simple, classic cut is worth investing in.
