Spring Jewelry Trends for 2018

Oversized Bee Ring is on trend for 2018. When it comes to jewelry trends I like to follow the old adage, "keep it simple".  You get the idea.  Jewelry trends overwhelm those who don't feel comfortable being too trendy or adding more than their everyday jewelry.  I get it.  That's why I picked three trends that are fairly classic and easy to incorporate into your most basic wardrobe staples.  And remember jewelry is for having fun and adding a bit of sparkle, shine and breaking up the norm. Hoop Earrings That's right. They are back! Asymmetrical, oversized or with a tortoiseshell finish you cannot go wrong.  The classic gold hoop in a variety of sizes never fails. Wear any hoops to dress up a simple sheet dress for a night out. Take that button down for the office and … [Read more...]

What Goes Around Comes Around: The Choker

Ah, the choker.  How I loved them.  Back in the mid-90's! Oh yeah- Pearl Choker from Prom 1994 and Winter Dance 1993.  Because what is old is new we have this latest trend that was even seen on Erin Andrews during the Super Bowl. Source: Fox Sports Each time a trend comes back around again, the choker included, it gets tweaked.  Initially, I was all, "Nope, not gonna do it." I was over it.  It wasn't one I wanted to repeated.  Then I saw these from Shopbop and capitulated. I really love it with simple necklines.  Pair it wish a straight neckline and blazer like Erin or peeking out from an open collar. Meet my new favorite chokers.  No more black ribbons, no pendants.  No crafting included.  Just pure gold.   The Choker Trend by victoriamason featuring a choker … [Read more...]

The Pajama Blouse

I'm a little bit obsessed with the Pajama Blouse right now.  As in I want one for every day of the month. There is something about the month of December that makes me want to simultaneously wrap myself in gorgeous fabrics like soft silks,jewel-encrusted rings and velvet shoes while also being so comfortable I feel like I'm wearing loungewear.  The pajama blouse can be all those things all at once. I purchased one in an emerald plaid pajama blouse from the most recent Shopbop sale and the idea of wearing it with a pair of loafers and jeans is quite perfect for a work at home day.   Intropia Silk Pajama Blouse/NYDJ Sophia Flare Ankle Jeans/Jon Josef 'Gentry' Black Smoking Loafer (simliar)/Shein Black Horse Hair Covered Saddle Bag with Chain Strap (similar)/Romwe Silver … [Read more...]

Slip into the Athleisure Trend

My birthday this week has prompted those around me to ask me what I want as a gift. One of the top items are the New Balance for J.Crew 620 sneakers in 'Gold Salt'. It's my way of working in the athleisure trend. Sadly, they are backordered until fall but isn't that a great time to slip off the sandals and flops and put on some cute, warmer kicks like these? I think so.  I can wait. My mind started churning on other cute athleisure style shoes and I found some super cute ones that you can wear right now.   Athleisure Shoes Under $50 by victoriamason  1.

Cool Mint & Warm Olive

While it's been really hot here after a mild August I have found myself struggling to fight the urge to wear fall's cooler weather clothes. I want my jeans back! So this mix of soft, summery mint and the more dense and warm olive are a good way to mix both seasons!  I feel like I can have the best of both worlds. … [Read more...]
