So this is the last of the Iowa photo shoots! We took these pics on the Arsenal Bridge crossing over the Mississippi. Super creepy because the bridge is entirely grated so you can see the water below your feet. Anyways, was in a sparkly mood so I opted for sequins, glitter and more glitter. Shining is every girl’s prerogative after all . These Miu Miu pumps have quickly become the most worn item in my closet. I love the curved heel!Wearing Theory tuxedo blazer, Joe’s leggings, sequin scarf, Calvin Klein belt and Miu Miu heels.
Super excited about today and the Refinery street style shoot! I finally met Amy of chicagostreetstyle.com and Shani, the Chicago editor for Refinery29. T‘was a true pleasure. After the shoot, David and I shot some pics of my outfit in Lincoln Park. I am a huge fan of femi items and the silhouette of the skirted coat makes me feel so womanly! The headband is actually a thick sterling silver chain necklace. I wanted to add some edge and liked it’s crown-esque vibe! I love repurposing items in my wardrobe — makes me feel so green.

It’s no secret — I heart animal prints. They are a wardrobe staple. With a wild rep (hehe), they’re typically saved for secondary flair like shoes and accessories. But with all the pattern and texture mixing in the style world, I thought a hybrid ensemble was in order.
Here, I calmed the prints with a neutral palette of grays, browns and black. I added some texture with the fox fur collar, sheer tights and sparkle shoes to add a few points of interest. Those fun extras are where your flavor and personal style shine. If you’ve got the personality to rock it — STRUT IT OUT.
I am absolutely loving the vibrant highlighter colors that are showing up in collections right now. And judging by the J crew 2012 Spring Collection on the Fashion Week runway today, these colors are here to stay. My favorite being — electric pink! Pops of color are a great way to give old trends, like the preppy one I am rocking here a new life. My favorite part about this outfit are the wonderful Miu Miu heels David got me for my birthday this year. Classic with a twist. Too good to be true!

So, I am really into the mixed metal trend and decided to do a little “Ode to Metal” outfit. To jazz up this LBD, I layered multiple textures of gold and silver accessories on top. I love that matte, sparkle and shine alike can go together and be fashionable!!! No more matchy matchy ladies! Get a little crazy with your outfit toppers! AND if you are feeling really jazzy — add some leopard for a “call to the wild affect.” It is your time to SHINE. So pridefully rock your favorite trends TOGETHER and be this season’s fashion guru.
