I think everyone needs to be nudged a little out of their fashion comfort zone every now and again. For some people, that means nixing their jeans and tees for cocktail attire, for me, well pants are already something I’m struggling to become more acquainted with, so a printed denim pair was in some ways a stretch for me to put on. Once I got past the intimidation and fear of not being about to remotely pull them off, I actually felt very comfortable in them, adding layers to tone down the colorful print (a reproduction of contemporary artist John Rossi’s work), and then threw on a patterned shoe for a little extra fun.
I love my Balance necklace, and I want to give one away to you! Enter to win a Miriam Merenfeld necklace of your very own.
I’m officially another year older, and hopefully a little bit wiser.Since we had a pretty filled weekend of celebrating, we kept yesterday low-key, opting for a mix of neutrals instead of sparkles, and ordering in rather than going out.Don’t worry, we have more birthday plans still for the weekend so there’s plenty of chances for a little extra glitz and glitter then.
Don’t forget to enter to win a Miriam Merenfeld necklace like the one I’m wearing here.
Birthdays have always been a pretty big deal in our family, and while I already feel like I’ve been celebrating for a week, today is officially mine.There have been plenty of excuses to get dressed up and go out to eat the last week or so, but you can’t deny that sparkles are the ultimate celebration attire.And since no birthday is complete without presents, I’m excited to be giving one away to a very lucky reader.Miriam Merenfeld makes the most beautiful necklaces, and I’ve shared a few of my favorite styles on Raving Fashionista in the past, and now I get to gift one to one of you!
I’ve been living in variations of this look lately.The formula is simple; a bold, bright dress, a little (faux) leather jacket, and a pair of booties.It’s got a rock-n-roll vibe that still feels festive, and makes getting ready for all the little outings this time of year a breeze.
This weekend was pretty amazing. Not only did CK arrange a surprise dinner (with sushi and lots of donuts), but he also whisked me away for a mini getaway in the cutest little town filled with tons of antique shops, galleries, and quirky little stores. I’m thankful that I packed my most comfortable pair of pants and bundled up in plenty of layers, perfect for all of the walking we did — which definitely helped to balance out all of the delicious food we indulged in.
Raving Fashionista has become a way to share my passion for personal style, while hopefully providing a little everyday outfit inspiration along the way. My name is Sarah, and I'd love to help to change the way you look at your closet.
