Lady in Red

During the spring and summer seasons I love wearing rompers because they are so simple to throw on, yet chic and feminine.  They can also be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.  In my Spring Trends blog post, I featured a lightweight floral romper that I paired with some neon heels.  However, today's OOTD showcases this silk romper that I scooped up at Bebe.  What drew me to this piece was the bold color in addition to the detailing and pleats.   Therefore, it's one of my favorite items in the closet as of now.  I decided to go for a bit of a casual look by pairing it with some simple snakeskin sandals, but I also added a big statement necklace and a chunky bracelet with my gold watch.  Adding bold accessories to a solid piece can create a very chic look. 

What I'm wearing:
Bebe romper
F21 necklace & bracelet
GUESS watch
Sally Hansen nail strips

Friday Favorites: Top 10 Accessories Every Girl Should Own

Whether it includes the addition of a simple cocktail ring to an evening outfit or a bold statement necklace to a white blouse, accessorizing can really complete your look.  For today's post, I've featured my top 10 accessories that every girl should own.  They don't have to necessarily be the exact same pieces, but these will just give you a general idea.  Check them  out!

1) Gold Watch - Adding a gold watch to your look can give an overall classic appeal

2) Bold Bangles - These jewel-toned bangles can make a neutral outfit look great with a simple pop of color (ex. maxi skirt and a white tank)

3) Neon Accessories - Neon accents are very trendy right now and they can really complete your look

4) Studs - Studs, spikes or anything including embellishments can be added to a simple white blouse to make it look a little edgy

5) Mint Studs - Mint or pastel colors are another trend for the Spring season and these studded earrings are a great touch to denim tops, blouses, or florals

6) Statement Necklace - These look great over crew neck tops or a button-up blouse

7) Cocktail Ring - Adding one of these babies to an evening look can turn your work outfit to a happy hour outfit

8) Bright Skinny Belt - Adding a skinny belt to cinch up a dress, top or high-waisted pants gives you a more polished look

9) Feminine Accent - Grab at least one accessory that is romantic or truly feminine to lighten up your outfit

10) Green or Blue Toned Jewelry - Yet another trend for the upcoming season and it is gorgeous!

The Golden Pants

Ever since I saw the Balmain Spring 2012 runway looks, I've been inspired to incorporate metallic into my wardrobe and my long running search for the perfectly structured gold pants has come to an end.  I found the last pair of these gold jeans at ZARA...and they just so happen to be my size!  I love adding standout items to my look.  Therefore, I added a deep purple blouse along with a structured blazer with gold lace overlay and leather trimming.  I kept neutral shoes since the outfit is already bold enough.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
Bebe by Kardashian blazer
Express blouse
ZARA jeans
Guess gold watch
