keeneland style

It’s that time of year again!  Keeneland, a true bluegrass institution, opens April 5th and runs through the 26th of the month.  I especially find the April meet to be a fun and fashionable, as everyone sports their new spring looks.  Since its not quite sundress weather for me, here’s my style inspiration:

winter greys

Wintery greys are the perfect backdrop for a colored jeans.  This is a current favorite look that makes me feel seasonally appropriate in grey with a fun pop of color!  I’m currently loving wearing purple, royal blue and kelly green.  Try out other soft neutrals like cream and camel for a feminine contrast to dramatic colored denim.  I love camel with kelly green and cream with a bold pink.

Christmas revisited

These are a few of our favorite holiday things…

The countdown to Christmas is on!  Are you ready?

black & camel

One of my favorite color pallettes, particularly during the fall is black and camel.  This ultra polished color combo can be worn by any skin tone and works well for both day and evening.  Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

It’s been a particularly warm and beautiful fall this year, and I can’t help but be inspired by all the brilliant colors.  Above, navy and leatherette (cruelty free) oxfords are the key piece.

For these Indian summer days, pair them with a sleeveless dress and a brown belt.  As the weather cools, go ultra preppy with a tweed cardigan, pencil skirt, and tights!

As the mom of a two-year old, many times with style it comes down to function over form—-easy and comfortable are key!  But truly, you don’t have to sacrifice your style because you are spending the afternoon with your kiddo.  You may be passing on those 5 inch heels for the occasion, but this look is effortlessly chic, whether you are a mommy or not!
