bold look

A Fashion Page Makeover, The Prettiest Yellow Top, Style Crush- Victoria Beckham

I want to give a nice warm welcome to our newest resident photographer and photo editor, John Rounds. He took shots of this entire post and one coming up next week. I can't wait to share more of his shots with you over the coming days and months. John truly believes there is something beautiful in capturing the special moments in someone’s life.  His photography has the ability to bring you back to a special place, a walk down memory lane, to life’s most joyful times. I am honored to be able to work with such an amazing photographer. Please browse John Rounds' website at www.jroundsphotography.com  for more information about John, his portfolio, and the recent happenings on his blog.

Leave your coat at home when you're stepping out in a yellow statement-maker like this. Granted, it's not for the style-shy, but a good bold color piece will never look dated. I was hoping to achieve a ladylike look, polished, never fashion victim. My favorite style shortcut is classic clothes with trendy accessories. I hope you enjoy this look and stay warm through this frigid catastrophe of a weather.

Style Crush: Victoria Beckham

It's been a long time since Victoria Beckham has enchanted the world for the first time as Posh from Spicegirls! Since then, she made it her mission to redefine her success in fashion industry .  Of course being married to a timeless hottie like David Beckham did not hurt. The rest is history. Below are my favorite looks by this tiny little woman who I absolutely adore!

Don't forget to click on the WEEKLY OUTFIT PLANNER for this week's wardrobe inspiration featuring fun pieces like floral, pleated skirt that is so "in" this season!

Nude, beige or creme never goes out. Those colors are perennial, everlasting, infinite and make me feel natural and special. I love to wear nude all over and I indulge in everything womanly. My favorite is the dress of course but I also adore this "shrunken" style blazer (although it is a bit wrinkled from sitting in the car for too long). Flash of gold adds a rich element to this look. 

I want to hear from you! Send me pictures of your favorite nude, beige or creme outfit. I would love to include these in my "nude awakenings" hall of fame and feature them in my blog.


MORE NUDES

The strongest coats this season are punched-up classics: a peacoat in brilliant blush (almost nude) at Temperley London from the Winter 2014 collection, is a contemporary take on the classic riding coat.

The newly minted perennial got a fresh spin in the form of garment dyed jeans at Brunello Cucinelli and urban patchwork at JUNYA WATANABE COMME DES GARÇONS.

Second Look: Sunglasses: Linda Farrow, Earrings: Dinny Hall, Sweatshirt: Moschino, Jacket: MCQ BY ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, Shoes: JIMMY CHOO, Jeans: JUNYA WATANABE COMME DES GARÇONS, Bag: Aspinal of London, Ring:Dinny Hall

I love when designers play with patterns, textures and colors. Inspired by an 18th century Spanish chasuble, this close-fitting dress from the Temperley London Winter 2014 collection is folkloric in both tint and texture.

Even when dressing down a bit let color be your guide. Here are few playful pieces. Nude fedora hat, blush knit sweater and beige cashmere sweatpants jump-start a super comfy and bold look.
