I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been drawn to the well-placed zipper on a lot of the items around this season. The ankle zipper denim jean is no different. I remember this was a popular trend in my childhood and I’m actually glad to see that it’s made its way back. It’s actually a good styling detail – you can add visual interest to an outfit with the simple hardware or instantly transform a skinny jean into a slightly flared leg for a whole different feel. Are you on the ankle zipper jean trend?

The look for less: Taylor Swift

the look for less comment

Taylor Swift is one of the hottest country singers out there right now and she also has a chic style to boot. She recently moved from into her New York City abode and has been photographed in some pretty polished, city chic outfits.

Here is one of Taylor’s recent outfits she was spotted in. Her laid-back style is evident with this outfit consisting of closet essentials. She paired a Steven Alan crossover button-down shirt with some Joe’s skinny jeans, and dressed up the entire outfit some round toe Prada pumps. A Tod’s tote compliments the outfit and her Ray Ban sunglasses add just enough of a cool factor to her sophisticated look.

Get Taylor’s cool look for less by starting with this similar yellow gingham button-down and pink skinny jeans (and on sale, too!). Grab a pair of these nude heels and make them a closet staple. A similar satchel from Rebecca Minkoff has you looking like Taylor. Don’t forget to grab these great sunglasses and you’re all ready to conquer NYC, too!

Napa weekend getaway outfits

travel comment

Happy Friday, everyone! Ready for a weekend getaway? Consider coming to the Napa Valley! The Napa Valley is one of the most beautiful regions in California and is the home of almost 400 wineries. A stone’s throw north of San Francisco, the Napa region is estimated to be the second most visited attraction in California (after Disneyland).

Napa known not only for its wineries but also its vast number of spas, shopping, and dining. It’s a perfect destination for a getaway to catch some sun, drink fabulous wine, enjoy some culinary greatness and take in some R&R.

A weekend getaway in Napa’s wine country means you’ll need some fabulous outfits!

Outfits for Wine Country (Napa) |

Clockwise from left:

Start off going to brunch in a cute outfit. This bright yellow lace skirt is perfect for the sunny spring weather! Contrast it with a striped tank and bring along a lightweight cardigan in case the clouds make an appearance for a little while. A open-toed nude pump will elongate your figure and give you legs for days! Of course, you can’t forget the clutch – a necessity to hold all your essentials as you embark on your day.

After brunch, take a walk around and enjoy shopping at the boutiques and indulge yourself in a spa treatment! Worked up an appetite? Try some fine dining at mouthwatering establishments such as Ad Hoc, Bottega, The French Laundry, Morimoto, or Redd. Try a little black dress for the occasion. Add some sparkling earrings, a pop of red with a clutch, and some fun pumps and you’re already for some great eats!

On day 2, it’s time for some wine tasting. Whether your preference is cabernet, pinot, chardonnay, or zinfandel, you’ve come to the right spot. This internationally renowned region has a diverse showing of winemakers and they’d love for you to come and taste their creations. Consider taking a limo wine tour so you can sample all the wonderful flavors. Of course, that means you’ll need something comfortable to wear! Denim jeans are perfect for getting in and out of the stretch limo and navigating through all the castles and rooms of the various wineries. Try a blush-colored silk blouse and a matching blazer for a more casual but still sophisticated look. Complete the look with some cute earrings, a stylish quilted clutch, and bow-detailed pumps.

Hope you enjoy your stay and consider coming back again!
