Fresh Picks to Follow – The Highs and the Lows

I know that many of you have seen this trend on some of your favorite fashion bloggers as well as seen them in fashion magazines and the retail stores.  What trend am I talking about?  I’m talking about the high-low trend that is sweeping the nation this spring and it’s already in the works for this summer.  You can spot this trend out by looking for a shorter cut hemline in the front and a longer, flowy cut in the back. This trend is found mostly in skirts, dresses and sometimes shirts.  Personally, I’m not sure how I feel about this new high-low trend, but I’m willing to give it a try. Check out my top 10 high-low pieces for this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow.  What do you all think about this trend? Are you willing to give it a try?  Let me know!

Office Chic No. 1: The Perfect Blazer

One of my must haves for the basic wardrobe essentials for any office environment is the perfect blazer.   A versatile, well-made blazer is an easy way to dress up any outfit and create a more polished look.  Blazers are always available in a variety of styles, colors and fabrics and they can be used through out the year.  As I’ve mentioned before, I wear a lot of suits to work, but there are some days when I don’t want to have the same look as my colleagues.  For an alternative look, I like to break up the suit and create new outfits.  One of my favorite options is pairing a bold, colorful blazer with a pair of suiting pants or a skirt.  And when I can’t think of anything to wear, I always grab a blazer to change the look of my outfit.  A perfect blazer can take you from day to night if it’s paired with the right accessories like a statement necklace or a colorful scarf.  I also think that every wardrobe should have a basic black blazer.  I recommend finding a classic style that flatters your shape. A black blazer can take you anywhere you want to go and it will never go out of style.   So ladies, go out and find a well-tailored blazer for the perfect office chic look.  Do you have a favorite blazer in your closet?  Let me know.

I never really heard about Stella and Dot until last year when I saw one of my favorite bloggers wearing some amazing pieces.  A few months ago I finally checked out the website for the first time after I approached a woman wearing the Sophia Pearl Bib Necklace.  I thought this necklace was stunning on her.  As you can see above, it’s a beautiful statement necklace.  My favorites are the Sophia Pearl Bib Necklacethe Pegasus Necklace; the Campari Necklace; the La Coco Rope Necklaceand the Bahari Necklace.  Check out the Stella and Dot website and let me know which ones are your favorites.
