Happy Thursday, everyone! I can’t believe it’s almost February (and Valentine’s Day!). January has completely flown by–I started a new job, I’ve been in crazy wedding planning mode with my fiancé (less than three months to go until the big day!) and I’ve also been down for the count this week with bronchitis. All of that said, it’s been tough to post as much as usual and I’ve been a bit M.I.A.!
I loved so many gowns at the Emmys this year, I couldn’t help but paint some of my favorites. This is my take on Sarah Hyland of Modern Family’s beautiful frock. I love the volume in her Christian Siriano skirt and how the white crop-top balances the bright color so elegantly. I would wear this outfit in a heartbeat.

I am loving the classic nautical trend right now and I keep finding myself inspired by other blogger’s classically-styled striped outfits. I’m loving Sincerely Jule’s stripes here, Gal Meets Glam’s here and Styled Snapshots stripes here. Today, I decided to use all of these looks as my style muse and I came up with the above watercolor painting. I added in some other pieces trending right now–from a statement necklace to classic sunnies and lace-up heels. Of course I also added Vogue, the fashion bible, into the above Balenciaga bag.
