Winter Blues






Express Portofino Shirt ('Bitter Grape'), Charlotte Russe Tribal Print Skirt
Antonio Melani Boots (similar), Michael Kors Bag and Watch



I love injecting color into my outfits, especially in the Winter. I always try to steer clear of browns and fall colors (except for my boots!) come January and February. I think that by the time that January rolls around I am already determined to begin celebrating Spring! At least February is tomorrow, so that means that we won't be waiting much longer! 

I am so ready for another fun weekend. One of my best friend's birthday is today, so we are heading out to celebrate tonight with dinner, drinks, and a little dancing. What are you up to this weekend? I hope that you have a great one! ~

Favorite Sweatshirt







Style Lately Sweatshirt and Earrings, Old Navy Jacket and Cross-body Bag, 
Target Leggings, New Look Sneakers



When it comes to casual days, I love being absolutely comfortable. It was chilly yesterday and I had to run a few errands with one of my best girl friends, so I opted for my favorite pair of cozy leggings, and my new sweatshirt from Style Lately that I am currently obsessed with. I mean, what's not to love about something that mentions three of my favorite things?! I'm simply in love with this Shopping, Coffee, Vogue pullover. You can check out their site for more fun tops and pullovers. I'm definitely getting my hands on this adorable #selfie tee next!

Gold Accents





I love color combos that involve a pretty gold color. I am always trying to accessorize with gold, whether with a gold bangle or fun gold earrings. I have been trying to incorporate a little more of it into my wardrobe this year in the form a glitzy sweater and chic heels. Above is a list of a few things that are currently on my radar. I hope to add a few of these pieces to my closet soon!

January Sun








Old Navy Hat (similar here, here, and here), Topshop Bodycon Dress, 
Gianni Bini Cardigan, Jessica Simpson Boots, Juicy Couture Bag


So despite the awful cold front that we had in Texas yesterday, the weather that we received on Tuesday was quite lovely. It was 65 degrees and sunny, with hardly any wind (which we receive a lot of in the Texas Panhandle) and it made for just the perfect January day. I decided to wear a dress from Topshop that I purchased a few years back, but remains one of my favorites because I bought it when I first went to meet Ben's family in England. I paired it with a simple cardi and some fun red boots. 

This weather made me so excited for Spring and I simply can't wait for it to be here! You have probably already noticed a little of that with me posting more pastels and brights lately! I guess you could say that I am more than a little ready for Winter to be over.

I'm heading to Dallas tomorrow with family to get out of town for a bit and possibly do a little shopping! What are your weekend plans? I hope you enjoy your Friday and have a lovely weekend!

LM Makeover



Welcome to my new site!


I'm celebrating today on LM and so excited to show you what I have been up to these past few months! The wonderful Kelly over at Fabulous K designed everything and was absolutely amazing to work with. It's been a long time coming and I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm so thrilled to have the new Leopard Martini up and running! I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

Pink Peplum







Forever 21 Jacket and Bracelet, Express Dress (similar here, here, and here), Michael 
Kors Bag, Target Heels (similar here, here, and here), T.J. Maxx Earrings



Ever since peplum made a huge splash in the summer of 2012 I have remained an avid lover of this fun trend. You simply can't go wrong with peplum, in my opionion! I love wearing dresses year-round, and with the weather being in the 60's these past few days, (warm for me after spending a freezing summer in Iceland!) I have used any excuse to wear a fun skirt or girly dress. I wanted to take this fancy Express dress from night to day so I paired it with a favorite denim jacket from Forever 21 and a casual pair of leopard print pumps. I love finding ways to transition an evening look into something more laid back for during the day.

Topshop Must-Haves




Topshop has always been one of my favorite go-to stores for on trend and super stylish pieces. I used to shop at the ones in the UK before they finally decided to bring it to The States, and when they did I was absolutely thrilled! They have lovely and chic pieces for every girl's style and every girl's budget as well. I have put together a wishlist of current must-have items for this Winter that can also take you into Spring. I love pastels and fun prints, and can't wait to add some of these to my wardrobe. 


Topshop is also having a sale on several items including the biker jacket above! You can shop my list here:

Mini Zebras








T.J. Maxx Top, BCBGeneration Faux Fur Vest (similar here and here, Express Jeans (similar), Juicy Couture Bag, New Look Booties (similar), Marc Jacobs Watch



One thing that I have a lot of in my closet are fun printed pieces, and my favorite place to shop for affordable and on trend prints is T.J. Maxx. With fashion, things are always going in and out of style, and I like to purchase fun printed tops, dresses, and bottoms at great prices. I typically only invest in basic pieces, and when it comes to trendy new styles I don't want to spend a lot. I purchased this fun zebra top at T.J. Maxx at an amazing price and loved the unique and girly print. I mixed it with some ripped jeans and fun booties to make for a more edgy weekend look. I definitely recommend stopping by your nearest T.J. Maxx for cute and affordable printed pieces.

Stripes & Leopard








Express Top, Dress From Poland (worn as a skirt), Gianni Bini Sandals
Warehouse Hat (similar), Michael Kors Bag and Watch


One of my favorite pairings has always been stripes and leopard. I have a lot of both prints in my closet and find myself constantly alternating them. They are both so timeless and classic and look lovely when worn alone or paired with other fun patterns and colors.

I was feeling very Parisian the other day and decided to mix my favorite floppy hat and an Express striped top with a fun and flirty dress that I purchased in Poland a few years back. I have been so inspired by my travels lately and have been trying to dive into the fashion that I saw while abroad. One of my favorite parts about visiting another country is to see the fashion and the ways in which others dress. I am always so drawn to the street style and various trends that are new to me. I visited Paris after I graduated from High School in 2007 and absolutely fell in love with the city. It was incredibly magical and beautiful in every way imaginable. The style was unlike any other. French women have such an effortlessly chic look about them that everyone seems to want to emulate. Reading 'Parisian Chic', definitely helped to inspire this look as well. It's the perfect little go-to book if you love Parisian style and I highly recommend it. 

I hope to visit the City of Love again soon!
