Day 5 of Scuttle Anniversary Celebration!

I have found a new love, Carolee jewelry! I know I have talked about it before but I just want to rave again because I have practically lived in their beautiful jewelry for the past few weeks. 
They make beautiful staple items for everyday wear but they also make gorgeous, stand-out, bold pieces which is my kind of jewelry! 

You know what makes me love them even more? They are an extremely charitable company. Right now they are doing Project (G.L.A.M) Granting Lasting Amazing Memories which  is a fundraising program aimed to outfit thousands of economically disadvantaged girls for their high school prom.  From March 18th to March 31st, Carolee is encouraging customers to purchase any two pairs of earrings from  For every two purchased, Carolee will donate one pair to Project G.L.A.M. So if you currently looking to buy some new jewelry for spring I would encourage you to check out Carolee & help support in creating special experiences for girls who cannot afford to go to prom!

Piped Blazer + Day 3 of Giveaways

Blazer & Heels - H&M 
Piped Blazers
A big trend for this spring will be layering with a classy piped blazer.
I love this trend because it helps dress up an otherwise casual outfit. I am wearing just a plain tee & a pair of jeans which would be super casual but adding the blazer finishes the look & steps it up a notch. The piping makes it POP & stand out more than just a plain black blazer would. There are so many options for a great blazer to fit this trend but here are a few of my favorites...

Piped Indigo Blazer - Anthropologie
Tweed Addie Jacket - Kate Spade
Nautical Neon Trimmed Blazer - Forever 21
Ponte Academy Blazer - Gap
Liberty Quilted Jacket - J.Crew
Whit Lucia Jacket - Madewell

Day 3 of the Scuttle's Anniversary Week Celebration!
Every day this week I am doing a giveaway in honor of the blog's 1 year anniversary.

Anniversary Giveaway Day #2

Shirt - Gap (similar) / Brooch - Grandmothers / Earrings - Carolee / Lipstick - Mac 

Fun tip to try: Use your brooch as if it were a tie
We all have those beautiful pins that we either stole from our mothers jewelry box or picked up from a thrift shop with the intentions of wearing one day, but that day never seemed to come. Well here is your chance! Take your button down shirt up a notch by adding a brooch at the top. Beautiful accessory that adds pizzazz!

Rock the Floral Trousers

Spring Trends Continued...
Today lets talk about Floral + Tweed + Sneakers
Trousers - H&M / Blazer - H&M / Clutch - Free People / Necklace c/o - Carolee 

For this spring & summer you will see that the power suit is majorly coming back into style! You will see that many of the suits aren't just your typical solids but bright colors or loud prints. So I went with a floral trouser print for this trend & in this post I am just wearing the pants & pairing it with a seafoam green (the color for spring!) blazer, a dainty floral necklace & a great pair of black heels to create a fun but work appropriate outfit. 

Now lets wear these pants another way. Same floral trousers but mixing them with a jean shirt & sneakers to dress it down & turn these work pants into weekend appropriate. Another big trend that is happening is matching the power suits with sneakers, most people either hate it or love it. I personally like it with this outfit  but I love trying new things :) I finished the outfit off my adding a beautiful statement necklace that makes the jean shirt & tee more dressy. 

T-shirt - J. Crew / Jean Shirt - Thrifted / Clutch - Free People / Necklace c/o - Carolee

Try something new today! Maybe a sneaker + trouser pairing?!?

Spring Trends - Tweed!

Jean - Free People / T-shirt - Nordstrom Rack / Jacket - H&M / Purse - Top Shop 
 Shoes - Steve Madden / Socks - Free People / Earrings - Betsey Johnson 

Spring Trends = Tweed + Small Box Purse + Bright Pink Lips
 Probably my most favorite spring trend is the tweed! I love tweed, especially in a pastel (like this mint green!). Tweed can look super fresh & clean while still providing some warmth when the spring breeze blows through. I got this little diamond in the rough at H&M for only $19 last week & they had it in a beautiful pastel pink as well (may need to go back for that one :)

Happy Spring shopping!

Packing For Spring Travels

Packing for Spring Travels!
 I just took off yesterday for a trip this week to Las Vegas & San Francisco. Since spring is finally peeking its head out to play it was fun deciding what to bring. Spring time can be a hard one to decide what to pack for because you still have the chances of running into cold showers or a windy chill that will leave you wishing for a warm, fluffy jacket or a beautiful sunny day with no breeze at all that leaves it to hot for long sleeves and boots. So here is my list of must pack spring items:

- 2 pairs of denim (one light weight & one heavy weight)
- Boots
- Open toed shoes
- Light scarf 
- Light jacket ( I choose tweed )
- Light Sweater
- Chambray/Jean shirt
- Sunglasses
- Light colored clutch
- Plenty of light weight t-shirts for layering
- Statement jewelry in spring colors
- Lace socks

 Grab a suitcase, pack it full & enjoy a bit of spring travel!

Spring Trends: Black & White Stripes

Mod Squad
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

All over the runways for spring you would have definitely seen this trend - bold black & white patterns! Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and many, many more showed the bold black & white combo's in their collections. The inspiration for many of these designs was "retro mod". So if you are feeling in the mood to channel a little bit of 60's then pick one of these eye-popping geometric prints for a kick of fun.
