feminine flair

Turtleneck: H&M  /  Skirt: H&M (similar)  /  Tights: Hue  /  Bag: Kate Spade  /  Rings: AE + J. Crew  /  Shoes: Nine West  /  Shades: House of Harlow 1960

Happy Wednesday everyone! You might all be wondering what I have been up to if you follow my Instagram. I have joined the amazing and very talented American Eagle Outfitters production team. I get to travel across the United States as the host of their new TV show, " AEO Style File." With the new position I also received a new look (happened after these pictures were taken)... I guess you will have to stay tuned to see what I mean. ;)
Have a great day everyone!

shady

1.  /  2.  /  3.  /  4.  /  5.  /  6.  /  7.  /  8.

You all know I love my sunglasses, but I really love to wear them because I think they truly complete the entire look. So I guess you could say that I was so thrilled to see unique colors and shapes with sunglasses on the runway for this coming spring and summer. I pulled together some of my favorite shades and since it's Tuesday, that means I found the best prices so you can be FAB at any budget!
Happy Tuesday everyone and stay tuned for some exciting news!

black & white


Coat: Kenneth Cole (similar)  /  Sweater: Forever 21 (also similar here)  /  Shirt: Gap  /  Pants: American Eagle  /  Heels: Target  /  Clutch: J. Crew  /  Shades: South Moon Under  /  Lipstick: NARS "Heat Wave"  /  Rings: J. Crew + AE

Most of you know that I am all about the color and tons of it. However, I think it's fun to switch it up every once in awhile and go for more neutral colors. Black and white color combos have been all over the runways lately, and I am officially sold! It is a cool and modern color combo that also gives me an excuse to bring out my hot red shades. (Funky and fun sunglasses are another fun runaway trend for this spring/summer!) I hope you all have a great week... I am off to classes, errands, and meetings all day! Oh hello Monday. ;) Thanks for reading! xo

As each season approaches, I love to do a post about shoes that are on my list! In the spring time I often find myself wearing three different types of shoes over and over again. Can you guess what kind of shoes are on the top of my list? ;) Here are my favorite colors, styles, and prints in some pretty comfy and fashionable shoes. Happy Thursday! xo

So it's safe to say I'm hooked!

fabulous at any budget



under $50: anchor sweater (similar, literally just sold out)  /  wedges  /  fedora  /  braided belt  /  stretch bracelet  /  life preserver charm  /  necklaces (similar, another sell out)
under $100: red skirt  /  knot bangle  /  bathing suit  /  striped TOMS  /  heart earrings  /  flip flops  /  striped watch
under $200: coach bag  /  rope bracelet  /  striped sweater  /  seahorse necklace  /  rope necklace  /  drop earrings  /  heels (similar, sold out)

After talking to a Sealed With Style reader and close friend of mine, I thought that every Tuesday a post should be about feeling and looking fabulous at any budget. Sometimes I forget that anyone can look great without spending a fortune. Everyone has different budgets, so I thought that I would make a little list with one of my favorite spring inspirations...nautical! Even though I'm not sailing the seas (yet), a girl can dream about the 80 degree weather right?!

...PS I hope these lists inspire you and have you realize that you can be fabulous at any budget!

the usual

Shirt, Jacket (similar here & here), & Bottoms: American Eagle  /  Bag: DKNY  /  Shoes: Falchi  /  Shades: Ralph Lauren  /  Jewels: H&M, House of Harlow 1960, NordstromUrban Outfitters

It's the usual today... a fun jacket, chambray shirt, and black skinnies. The best part about wearing classic pieces is that they can easily be dressed up or down. Sometimes going the simple route is better...and a pop of leopard can do no wrong! I hope you all have a safe and fun weekend!
