Friday Fun: Printed Pants

My newest obsession is printed pants. High wasted, crazy patterns, and light material are just the perfect addition to spicing up my wardrobe!

Tie the Knot

No. This is not about “tying the knot” -AKA a wedding. It is about the new 70s inspired trend of tying up your button downs!

Socks & Heels

I am a Fashion Contributor (with a heavy focus on accessories) for HerExchange.com, an online women’s magazine, and wanted to share with you my latest piece. So in case you missed…

As you get caught up with the millions of photos taken during New York Fashion Week and even now with Milan, this trend is popping up everywhere.

For those of us that still have cold wintry weather, this trend is definitely worth a try but also be prepared to see this trend on the feet of every fashionista that passes by in the spring as well. The socks and shoes trend is not confined to heels, you will also begin to see socks with feminine flats that give a nod towards a men’s tassel-loafer.

How do you feel about this trend? Have you tried this yet? I have here and want to continue to mix this look into my wardrobe. My next step is to go find fun flirty socks in bright spring colors. *Sigh* Is it spring yet, DC?
