A woman’s purse is her best friend. Don’t even try and argue with us. It holds our ENTIRE lives – lipgloss, wallet, tissues, makeup, phone, iPad. What would we do without it? Thats why we suggest you invest in a purse that will last an entire season (or two). And today we are sharing some of our favorites. Because women tend to wear dark neutrals and rich jewel tones come winter and fall – we like their bags to POP! Yes – pop! It’s such a polished final touch to a professional look! So go ahead – indulge in a merlot, teal, mauve or sage colored satchel. XO
Think about what you bring to work – laptop, portfolio, wallet, keys, phone, chargers. The list goes on and on. So if you’re going to lug your whole world around – it might as well be in a stylist, structured work bag. Right? Right! Many women opt for black, but when black is the main color in your wardrobe it may be a good idea to opt for a pop of color. We’re not recommending you buy the next hot pink bag you see – but a suave navy, a structured mulberry or clean neutral nude may be the nice touch you need to spice up your work wardrobe! XO
How amazing and DIFFERENT are each and every one of these skirts that we have rounded up for some fall inspiration? We have three shorter A-line skirts! One – leather that would pair well with a turtleneck or blouse. It looks super expensive and chic! Two – a kelly green color that is a statement on it’s own! Pair it with all black for a pop of color. And three – a classic black skater version that would pair well with tights later on this season, but you can wear with heels and a blouse now! The other two are perfect for the transition from office to evening wear. They pair with any type of blouse, button up or turtleneck – so you are able to go with any type of “look” you’re feeling. Versatility is key, my friends! XO
After months of cold weather, it’s hard not to get sick of your winter accessories. They just get boring! So why don’t you purchase a few pairs of each in different colors? Mixing up the colors and patterns will not only mix up your closet, but certainly your mood as well! We love how you can create different looks with the choices featured above. Pair the black hat with the camel mittens for a walk downtown and mix the Tory Burch grey hat with the black leather gloves for brunch with the girls. No matter how you mix, you’re sure to match!
Can you believe it’s already August? Summertime is flying by fast. So fast, in fact, that fall clothing and trends have started to pop up in stores! Radiant orchid, leather and jewel tones have begun to scatter the walls of our favorite places, including JCrew, Kate Spade and Nordstrom! Can you believe it? So we thought we would send you a little reminder to enjoy the rest of the summer! You heard us. Wear your best whites, rock your favorite florals and wear your pops of punchy orange. Now is the time to enjoy your favorite bright colors, because the summer days are numbered!
As previously stated, we are constantly looking to nature for outfit coordination inspiration. Some of our favorite flowers have turned into the most gorgeous color combinations. It’s so fun to see the multi-color flowers popping up against the lush grass. This past weekend we saw some yellow daffodils and we were instantly inspired. Now we must warn you that different shades of yellow don’t go with every skin tone, but this sunny yellow is just perfect. Add some fun navy and blue accessories like a Kate Spade tote and fun baubles to pull the whole look together. Paint your nails a poppy pink. It just gives it a little something extra, don’t you think?
It’s a gorgeous Monday morning and our closets are singing! Yes, they are singing! We are ready to rock our nude patent pumps or wedges with WHITE skinnies and a bunch of different color combinations. At the moment we are head over heels for this tangerine, coral and teal combo. It’s so fresh! For spring we love to look for nature for inspiration when we mix and match sets, like this. That warm coral, pretty tangerine and calming teal are all natural colors found in nature and look absolutely stunning together. We hope you are mixing and matching today, as well!
Have a great week!
We have waited a long time for this weather, it seems, but it is finally here! It’s no surprise that a few rainy days will be here to clean out the cobwebs of winter and welcome in the fresh flowers of spring. It’s time for us to do a few spring cleaning activities as well. Remember you don’t need to wear your LuLu Lemon sweat suit to the grocery store or to clean out the kids room. Rock a comfy pair of Not Your Daughters Jeans, a pair of Lucky Brand flats and a comfy wash and wear striped t shirt and you will be equally as comfortable.
Have a good day!
As we have explained before there are only a few trends that that the Kyle Alexandra team approves of each season. Trends come and go, recycle over and over. There are only a few trends that actually make sense. Crop tops? No way. Platform sneakers? Yeah right. We are featuring a few trends, today, that would work well into your lifestyle! Bright colors are an essential for warmer weather, so bright lightweight cardigans, colored skinny jeans and punchy handbags are a must. The go to footwear for spring includes metallic, patent nude and navy. Black and white are a huge spring trend, so try to buy a pretty work dress like the one featured here for a classic look. White lace is another big trend, but you should be careful about the way you wear it. We suggest you go for a pretty white lace skirt or a pullover sweater. Stripes are nautical and a great way to incorporate color into your wardrobe. Pair a striped shirt with a colored pant! And statement jewelry isn’t going anywhere. Brands like Kate Spade and JCrew have come out with some gorgeous pieces. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to shop!
