Sick Day Fashion….

The crazy weather here in Atlanta has rendered our little family sick….ughhhhh! My sweet Stella was up all night with a high fever and coughing. 😦 Nothings worse than seeing your baby sick…..all of you parents out there can relate! So, we were off to see the doctor first thing this morning……looking PROPERLY STYLISH, of course!

I know what you’re thinking…..”who has time to look stylish when your sick?” The answer is …..Everyone!

My ensemble today consisted of flared leg denim jeans, my husband’s comfy shirt (always a sexy little touch, especially for the hubby), cute wedges, and great accessories! All of which you have in your closet! This ensemble is your basic tee shirt and jeans with a kick! 🙂

This was such an easy look to pull together……it was quick, comfy and Properly Stylish! It’s amazing how much better you feel when you look great on the outside. Funny how fashion can sometimes be great medicine for the inside. 😉

My little star was also Properly Stylish for her doc visit….gold leggings, comfy cotton tunic, leopard print uggs and funky glasses! 🙂

Between us, I think she likes going to the doctor just so she can have a sucker. 🙂 Not to worry, she got a bill of clean health. No infections….just a yucky cold.

A simple, but stylish look doesn’t have to take hours to pull together. Pull out those basics and give them a boost with great accessories…..and look PROPERLY STYLISH even on the worst of days!

All Tied Up…..Latest Edition of the Game Day Runway!

Technically it’s fall…..but if you are in the south, it’s cool in the morning, warm during the day and chilly in the evening. Dressing for this crazy weather can prove challenging, especially on game day! Not to worry….I will have you dressing Properly Stylish while staying warm or cool…..or both! 🙂

The perfect accessory to keep you looking Properly Stylish while seasons transition, is the scarf!

There are so many different ways to wear a scarf! And, the scarf is the perfect addition to almost any outfit!

Hands down, one of my favorite types of scarves is the pashmina. Taking a cue from some of our favorite starlets, I think every woman should own one….or two! They will never go out of style! From dinner with your beau to tailgating with the girls, the pashmina is the perfect accessory to every outfit!

It’s no secret that OLE MISS gals go all out when cheering for their REBELS!  Adorned in gorgeous blue and red, this is a color match made in heaven! Adding a scarf to your favorite outfit is great way to keep you cozy and stylish while tailgating!

 This outfit is a perfectly casual option for game day! But, it needs a little something extra. Give this ensemble an instant boost with a scarf!

Timeless, warm and oh so wearable!

The scarf is versatile, chic and an easy affordable way to update your game day look!

Have fun with this great accessory!

…..And remember to put the Proper Style in your Game Day Ensemble!

B. Blessed!

It’s HOT Again…in October!

Well, no surprise! It’s hot again, in October….in the South, at least! If you’re anything like me you are rummaging through your closet looking for something to wear! Looking for an outfit that can keep you warm and cool at the same time, while looking Properly Stylish can prove to be a challenge!  May I suggest an easy ensemble perfect for girl’s night out or a date with the hubby?

This little number has a lot of edge! Try pairing a comfy sweater with an edgy skirt and killer shoes! Don’t forget the clutch and jewelry! Leave the tights at home and show a little skin. The sweater will keep you cozy and showing a little leg is just the right amount of sexiness to keep your man wanting more! 🙂

If you style is more simplistic, opt for a simple sweater to go over a simple dress. Accessories are everything with this ensemble! Have a little fun with a statement necklace and a pair of neutral wedges. Neutral colors keep this outfit clean and classic!

Dust off that tulle skirt….I know you all have one lying around!

Tulle Skirt + Sweater = High End Style

The tulle skirt is the lead role in this ensemble. So, keep the sweater and shoes simple (nude pumps would be perfect)! This look is great for a fancy dinner and a night at the theatre!

I will be pulling out my own version of this outfit for a night out with the hubby! I would love to hear all about your night out in this ensemble…..do share!!

Put the Proper Style in Everything You Do!

DO’s and DON’Ts: Bringing Your Summer Wardrobe Into Fall!

It’s blazing hot outside. No, wait, now it’s freezing! How am I suppose to pick an outfit? If this is the internal monologue running rampant in your head, not to worry! I am going to break down the DO’s and DONT’s of bringing your summer wardrobe into fall!

1. DO Add tights and boots to summer dresses. As we transition into fall you don’t have to take your favorite summer dresses out of your wardrobe rotation. Throw on a pair of opaque tights under your summer frock, add fall wedged booties and you are ready to pound the pavement in style!

2. DO Add a comfy sweater or blazer to your summer dress. The ever classic blazer should be a staple in your wardrobe. It can be added to anything from dresses to jeans for an instant ensemble upgrade. I love a great comfy sweater! And, you should too because it  is a major fall fashion trend for 2012! It will also keep you cozy during those chilly nights out with the girls!

3. DO accessorize with an oversized hand bag! Not only can you store you most important items, but you can also use the extra space to keep a scarf or use it to put your discarded sweater in if you get a little warm!

4. DO fall in love with scarves! They are the perfect accessory to add to any ensemble during seasonal transitions.

AND Now for the DONT’s!

1. DON’T over accessorize! A scarf, opaque or patterned tights, a hat, an ornate belt and dramatic shoes are great friends when you’re transitioning into fall……just don’t bring them ALL out to play at the same time!

2. DON’T wear it if it doesn’t fit you. Fit is everything! Do not wear it if it is too big or too small! This is especially important when you are layering items. Oversized, ill fitting pants layered with boots, a chunky sweater, scarf and an oversized handbag will leave you looking messy and larger than your actual size.

Transitioning your summer wardrobe into fall can be easy and stylish! Remember the DO’s and DON’Ts  and have fun putting the Proper Style in everything you do!

B. Blessed,

Wendy

Accessorize Your Life….

Accessories are a major fashion tool! They have the ability to instantly transform an outfit. While I love all accessories, there is nothing more instantly transformative than jewelry.

By Philippe is meticulously designed with 14 kt gold filled and sterling silver metals. This line is stunning! It appeals to women of all ages, incomes and styles. With great emphasis on quality, detail and design By Philippe will keep you looking amazing and turning heads.

These are just of a few of the pieces from Philippe Salame’s amazing line!

Jewelry is the most personal part of every look. The ‘Love’ necklace is one of my favorites…along with the heart necklace and ALL of the earrings! So many wonderful pieces to choose from. Stack them, pair them with your existing pieces, and look Properly Stylish while doing it!  Shop your favorites at ByPhilippe.com!

Falling for Boots!

It’s college football season and there are a number of things true about college football fans: Southern Belles are real sweet until college football season comes along, college football is a major religion, you should never get married during college football season, and only in the South is college football season an excuse to dress up! All of these are true, especially the last one. There’s nothing like a little school spirit to kick up your game day ensemble!

As much as we love summer, we’re willing to welcome fall back into our lives for two reasons: Fabulous Fall Boots and College Football!

Boots are a great way to look amazing and stay comfortable from tailgating to over-time! With so many different styles trending for the fall, there’s a boot out there for everyone! Where do you find great boots at a great price? I have scoured the internet for Fall’s Best Boots Under $100!

1. The Equestrian Riding Boot is a must have for this fall! The Madden Girl LUNDUNN knee high boot is a perfect addition to any outfit. Priced at $77 on Zooshoo.com, it’s a perfect for your fall collection!                      http://www.zooshoo.com/product_p/lundunnbrown.htm

2. The Cowboy Boot is one of the most popular trends on game day. The Sanguine, another great design by Steve Madden from his line Madden Girl can be found on Zappos.com. Pair this boot with a feminine dress or skinny jeans.

3. The BP ‘Trolley’ Ankle boot is one of my favorite styles. It pairs perfectly with jeans! Get it at Nordstrom.com for $99.95

4. The Wedge Lace-Up Bootie from Colin Stuart will instantly elevate your style this season! Front laces, buckles, and a sky high wedge heel will add a little edge to any ensemble. At $89 this shoe is a steal from Victoriassecret.com.

5. Sole Society ‘Josslyn’ Platform Bootie is an amazing find at Nordstrom.com for $59! This platform bootie propped up with a chunky heel adds style and sophistication to those skinny jeans.

For all of you Georgia Bulldog Fans!!

This is one of my favorite looks taking college football season by storm! Pair your favorite dress and leather jacket with cowboy boots. Cowboy boots give a polished look to jeans and a more down-to-earth feel to dresses! This look will have you looking amazing and while staying comfy.

You can’t go wrong with skinny jeans, a comfy shirt, edgy boots and sexy curls!

A new pair of trendy boots is the best way to celebrate fall and college football! Every woman should have a pair…..or two, or three! 🙂 Get out there and find the perfect boot to fit your style!

Put the Proper Style in Everything You Do!

B. Blessed!
