OOTD: #ManCrushMonday

Hello and happy Monday ladies and gentlemen! I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend and you’re ready to get your week started! I know no one likes Monday‘s very much, but with the weather warming up (even if it is just a little bit…) later in the week, I could not be more ready to get this week rolling! But, today’s #ManCrushMonday outfit goes out to my papa bear! Today is his birthday, so in my consistent effort to get him to dress a little more fashionable, I chose to make today’s OOTD more on the casual side (for anyone who knows him, you know he is definitely as casual as they come!). So, this week’s MCM is the perfect ensemble for almost anything. Super casual and versatile, this outfit is awesome for a date night with someone special, casual Friday at work, or even just a night on the town with the boys. So no matter what you may be doing, this is definitely an amazing option to keep in your collection of go-to outfits.

Outfit Of The Day - Man Crush Monday

Sweater: Brooks Brothers, $119; T-Shirt: Ralph Lauren, $62; Jeans: Hugo Boss, $185; Shoes: Vince, $375; Watch: Rolex, $2,950.

Is this great or what?! Ladies, would you love it if your man was rocking this, or what?! So, gentlemen, trust me when I say this, whether you already have someone special, are on the hunt, or you’re just doing your own thing right now, you’re sure to catch the eye of all the ladies with this one (trust me, I may have some special intel with this type of thing)! What do y’all think of this one? Do you love it as much as I do?! Let me know what you think and what other types of outfits you would like to see for either the man in your life, or for yourself!

Hope you all have an amazing Monday, beauties! Stay warm and start your week off on the right foot by having a great day today!

Introducing Our First Ever “Man Crush Monday”

Hello and Happy Monday/President’s Day lovelies! After receiving suggestions from an overwhelming number of y’all requesting that I add some men’s fashion into my posts, I have finally caved and decided to add “Man Crush Monday” to the line-up.  I hope this is what you all had in mind, but if you envisioned it looking a little different, just let me know! I plan on having a variety of different styles and themes, switching it up each Monday. This one just happened to be a more formal/professional look, but stay tuned because you never know what next Monday will bring…

So, getting back to business… Today’s OOTD is all about staying warm! With temperatures hovering around too cold to leave the house, and wind chills that are absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary, I figured what better way to do today’s #MCM than a wool suit?!

 

Outfit Of The Day - First Ever Man Crush Monday

Suit – Jacket: Ted Baker, $595; Pants: Ted Baker, $248; Shirt: BOSS Hugo Boss, $145; Tie: Richard James, $125; Belt: Salvatore Ferragamo, $395; Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo, $760; Watch: Gucci, $790.

Is this awesome or what? Plus, with this bad boy on, not only will you look super chic and stylish, but you are bound to stay warm all day long! Still worried it won’t be warm enough? Throw in some fun and crazy socks, and you will not only have warmer feet, but you will add a little bounce to your step, and make those around you smile when they see the awesome socks you’re rocking (if you can’t tell, I have a slight obsession with fun socks… I know it’s weird, but the collection of socks I own is absolutely ridiculous!). So, add these awesome socks to the ensemble above, and your feet are sure to stay nice and toasty all day long!

Funky Socks To Keep Your Feet Warm - Bugatchi Men's Socks, Nordstrom

BugatchiStripe Socks in Berry/Blue, $25 (Nordstrom)

I really hope y’all enjoyed the first ever Man Crush Monday today. Let me know what you think so far, and I will make sure to take any suggestions into consideration when I am putting together next Monday‘s outfit! Have a wonderful day off (hopefully you’re off, at least!) today, stay warm, and get ready for the snow that may be coming our way later today and tomorrow morning!

OOTD: Workout Wednesday

Hello there beauties! I hope you are all having a fantastic Wednesday so far, and that you’re as excited about Workout Wednesday as I am! So, with the weather getting to be typical September cold one day, super hot the next, Northern Virginia weather, this may be our last summertime Workout Wednesday outfit, but who knows… It may not! Anyway, getting back on track, I am personally a huge fan of fun workout tank tops… They are one of my favorite things ever, and if I could wear them everywhere I probably would (okay, maybe not everywhere, but you know what I mean!).  Even more, I especially love workout tank tops with fun quotes! There are some super sassy ones out there, and I just love them all! If that isn’t motivation for you when you look at yourself in the mirror at the gym and staring back is a fun, sassy quote telling you how awesome you are or to workout harder, then I don’t know what is! So, in the spirit of the fun tanks, I bring you this week’s Workout Wednesday

Outfit Of The Day - Workout Wednesday

Tank: Etsy, $29; Sports Bra: Nike, $43; Shorts: Nike, $28; Shoes: Nike, $$80

If you hadn’t ever noticed, and you couldn’t tell from this outfit, I am definitely partial to Nike products.  I am also a huge fan and supporter of Under Armour, but for some reason Nike just tops the list for me.  Nike running shoes are the only ones I will buy. This is because I have always had such a great experience with them and they never hurt my feet (I have had a lot of problems with shoes hurting my feet or rubbing when I run… Talk about awful!), so I know what I like and I stick to it… That just happens to be Nike (I would say my favorite is Lululemon, but it’s a little out of my price range at this point in time…. This girl doesn’t have a job at the moment!) But, now off my soapbox about Nike and back to Workout Wednesday

This outfit is so fun with it’s pop of color and the fun quote on the tank! I don’t know about you ladies, but it really makes me want to go change and hit the gym! Do you have a favorite brand for workout clothes other than Nike? What is your favorite type of outfit to wear when you hit the gym or venture into the great outdoors for your daily exercise?

Trendy Tuesday: Black + White

 

Back to The Basics With a Chic Black + White Ensemble

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope y’all had a fantastic Monday yesterday, and you’re ready for the better part of the week to start (I mean anything is better than Monday, right?).  Well, for the first time in what seems like forever (I really am sorry about that guys, it was a crazy summer with the pool and all of the stuff that went along with that!) we have a fantastic outfit of the day! I’m so glad this is the first one to get me back into the swing of things, because Trendy Tuesday is probably one of my favorite days for OOTD posts (other than Workout Wednesday of course, because I am super lazy lately and just love workout clothes because they’re so comfy…)!  So, today we have a super chic little ensemble of a black and white top from Tory Burch paired with a super trendy pair of leather shorts!

Outfit Of The Day: Trendy Tuesday - Chic Black And White Ensemble

Top: Tory Burch, $350; Shorts: J. Crew, $450;  Shoes: Saint Laurent (YSL), $795; Clutch: Valentino, $855; Bracelet: Mulberry, $215;  Earrings: Jessica Simpson, $18.

If you didn’t notice, this lovely ensemble was inspired by my friend Hilary’s outfit from Saturday night (see yesterday’s Motivational Monday for a picture!).  I absolutely loved her super cute outfit, and I am dying for a chic little pair of these amazing leather shorts (we know what’s on my wish list now…)! But, what do you think of this amazing outfit?! You could really wear it for so many occasions… Whether you’re having lunch with an old friend, going on a date with someone special, or hitting the town with the girls on Friday night, this outfit is perfect for them all!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday today, and get ready for tomorrow’s Workout Wednesday… I hope you’re as excited as I am!

Is that outfit the perfect mix of fun and professional or what?! I am loving this faux-wrap skirt, and as you all know, Jimmy is my man so of course I am loving the black patent pumps. They are just so versatile and they truly are a classic, totally work the money because they really will never go out of style! But, I hope this helps you ladies have a little more inspiration to look your absolute best this week while getting ready for work! I hope you lovelies have a fantastic day!

OOTD: Thrifty Thursday

Hello my amazing fashionistas! Before we start out today, I wanted to start out by making a huge apology for being absent for so long. But, not to worry, I am back beauties and I am not going anywhere this time! So now, with that out of the way, this week’s Thrifty Thursday is the perfect summertime dress for many different occasions and events. Whether you’re going to a fun family picnic, having lunch with some friends, or spending the day with someone special, this outfit could be the perfect little ensemble for so many different things.  And at this price point, who could resist?!

Outfit Of The Day - Thifty Thursday

Dress: Vero Moda, $41; Shoes: Miss Selfridge$68 $48; Necklace: ALDO, $18 $15; Bracelets: AQUA, $35; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24.

Do you love this or what, ladies?! I know, personally, I am drooling over this little ensemble, and I cannot wait to get my hands on something very similar! With the weekend coming up, I have plans to go shopping with my best friend Hilary on Saturday, and I fully intend on looking for an outfit that resembles this exactly! My personal favorite part of the outfit, the shoes, will be my go-to item. I just really love the faux-wood wedge and the brown leather color! The best part about the whole thing? It won’t break the bank! At prices such as these you really can afford to get the whole thing! But, if money is a little tight right now (I totally understand that one…), then just pick your favorite piece(s) and get those for now.

What do you lovelies think of this outfit? Are you loving this ensemble as much as I am? What is your favorite part? Let me know in the comments below! I hope you have a phenomenal day ladies!

Fix Me Up Friday: A Twist On Your Everyday Pony

I don’t know about you guys, but personally (when I have enough hair…) I tend to live with my hair pulled back in some way during the summertime.  In an attempt to add some sort of style to this unfortunate and boring ‘do, I am always searching for new, fun, and chic ways to add a little life to my dull old ponytail. Well, today I have an amazing one for you all that I cannot wait to try out in the coming months! It looks like it could potentially be a little tricky, but I think with a little practice and lots of patients (something I need to work on anyway!), it is definitely doable and maybe even easy!

Not Your Average Pony - Fix Me Up Friday

Is that not adorable or what?! I know I am personally so excited to get to try this one out and I definitely plan on practicing before I actually attempt to wear it out (I have a feeling my first few tries might not be very pretty…), but I will certainly keep y’all posted about how it goes and if it looks presentable maybe I’ll even share my results!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve had today (that is, if your day has been as nice as mine has!). This is my last week of undergrad (well, college in general actually because I am not going to grad school!), and I am starting to feel a little sad about leaving this wonderful place I have called home for the past four years.  With graduation approaching this Friday and Saturday, it is all getting to be really real lately.  I guess I better get ready though, because whether I want it to or not, it’s still coming! I have been on the job hunt for quite some time, but I have really been cracking down lately.  While I would love love love to work in fashion (as you all know!) I am starting to really open myself up to other options as well, just to get my foot in the door somewhere, network with all kinds of people (you never know who they know!), and get some real experience under my belt.  So, I’m hoping something comes up soon, but until then I will just have to keep trying and keeping a positive attitude – eventually I have to get a job, right?! But, if any of you know anyone who is hiring or have any suggestions/ideas as far as a job lead, I would love to hear from you! Please email me at kristen.booth06@gmail.com with any comments or suggestions!

But, now that I just rambled on forever (we’re not getting any younger here, Kristen!)… Let’s finally get to today’s outfit of the day! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect outfit for a fun spring or summer day.  I am loving these lace/crochet shorts – I really need to get a pair! And these colors are just so fun and summery… They make me so excited for pool days and barbecues! So, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday outfit: Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday   Top: Alexander Terekhov, $749; Shorts: Alice + Olivia, $275; Shoes: Corso Cosmo, $69; Necklace: Stephan & Co., $24; Bracelets: kate spade new york, $48 (turquoise) Valentino, $545 (gold) Bauble Bar, $66 $34 (coral) On Sale Now!; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24; Nail Polish: OPI, $8.99 – Bubble Bath (neutral) and Where Did Suzi’s Man Go? (Coral)

What do you guys think? Is that fun or what?! I don’t know about you, but all of these items (well except the nail polish… I already have those two and love them for the summertime!) are definitely going on my wishlist of summer items! Let me know what you think of this outfit and I would love any suggestions you may have for me! I hope y’all are having a great week so far!

Think Pink… Save The Tata’s And Get Free Stuff!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far despite this dreadful weather we are having… Today I have a special request to make from all of you beauties. As I told y’all a few months ago, my sister is currently trying to raise enough money to participate in the 2-Day AVON Walk For Breast Cancer. In order to do so she needs to have a total of $1,800 within one month after completing the walk, which is this weekend (Saturday, May 3 to Sunday, May 4!).  That means that by June 2, she needs to have all of her money collected (otherwise she has to pay it out of pocked!).

So, in an attempt to help out my big sissy, I am going to ask a huge favor of you fashionistas today… If you are able to donate anything, and I mean ANYTHING at all, to help her reach her grand total of $1,800 to help fight breast cancer, it would mean more to me than you could ever possibly know!

Plus, here comes the best part… If you donate any amount of money to help her at all, you will be entered to win any piece of lia sophia jewelry ($100 or less… Sorry ladies, I’m on a bit of a budget these days!) that you want.  The way you donate and enter to win is:

  • Go to Danielle Booth‘s page on the AVON Walk For Breast Cancer website (click here)
  • Click the “Donate Now” button (on the right hand side under the photo)
  • Fill out your information
  • Under the “Personalize Your Gift” heading, specify that you are donating and entering to win the jewelry giveaway via Style by Kristen Blair
  • Click the “Donate Now” button at the bottom of the page to submit your donation!

After you make your donation, my sister will give me your name and email address so I can enter you into the drawing.  I will let you know that I got your entry when she forwards me the info, so if you donate and don’t hear from me, please don’t hesitate to email me (at kristen.booth06@gmail.com) and let me know! I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the free jewels you could win!

So, don’t wait beauties… Donate now to be entered to win your choice of jewelry from the lia sophia catalog! It would not only mean a lot to me, but also to my sister who would be able to participate in the AVON Walk for Breast Cancer for the second year in a row!

Good morning and happy Monday lovely ladies… I hope you had a fantastic weekend and a great Easter! Long time no see… I know I have been MIA for the past few weeks… I suck!

So, for the first Motivational Monday in what seems like forever, I have a fantastic little ensemble that is perfect for spring. Ladies, if this doesn’t make you excited to get up and look flawless this week, then I don’t know what will because this outfit is phenomenal! So, now that I have talked it up so much, I hope I don’t let you down.. But here is one of my favorite Motivational Mondays yet!
