Statements

Wearing statement jewelry easily pulls together simple, minimalist outfits. Pick one item to be the statement piece and other accessorizes low key. I paired the white cluster necklace with really simple stud earrings and no bracelets or rings (I always wear my heart/cross though, even if it doesn’t go) and kept the bag and shoes neutral.

Wearing White…Doesn’t Have to be Scary!

Scarf: FashionABLE

Jeans: Wet Seal

Booties: Target

Bag: JustFab

White jeans are fresh and crisp for Summer and pretty much go with anything. Check out my fashion boards below for ideas on how to wear the white jean this season and… how to keep them that way! white jeans olivia cannizzaro styling wearingwhitedenims2 Wearingwhitedenims3

I love wearing skinny jeans so that’s my usual go-to, but just pick a fit that you like best like- a wide-leg, or a cropped capri, etc.

It might be a little daunting to make it through the day wearing white. I would recommend keeping one of

white jeans oxicleanthose stain remover pens in your purse and then just washing your jeans when you get home. If you don’t have one on hand and have to wait till later, the OxiClean laundry spray remover works wonders, just spray it directly on the spot and wash them in hot water.

If even all that is too much work, honestly for me, white jeans are the only kind that I will NEVER buy from a designer brand. I do think its worth it to invest in quality denims that will last forever, but when it comes to white, I go to Wet Seal! So if I do drop spaghetti and meatballs on me or my niece and little cousins (love them all!)  grab me with their sticky hands…then whatevs, got them on sale for 10 bucks.

So give ’em try, its not that scary;)

Top 3 Fashionistas @CMT Music Awards

Here are my top 3 favorite looks from the country gal’s at this year’s CMT Awards.

1) Miranda Lambert.

I actually have to give 1st place to Miranda Lambert kinda twice. I love her red carpet look as well as her performance dress. She wore an ivory Celia Kritharioti mini dress that is really beautiful and feminine with the crystals and metallic belt. The whole styling for her performance outfit is perfect and edgy with the gold embellishments, I really love her hair and makeup as well.  And the song! Sucha fun song, she and Carrie Underwood make a great duo.

2) Kimberly Perry.

This dress is simple and sweet with the girly ruffle skirt.

3 Jennifer Nettles.

She wore a pair of chic sophisticated palazzo pants with a cool embellished leather top and jeweled belt.

P.S. I just realized… I guess I should also include Brian Kelley’s (florida georgia line) wife Brittney Marie Cole since she and Miranda wore the same Jovani dress! Whatever it happens..they both look great in it.

Shoes that have mesh detailing or cutouts give a subtle edgy flair.

Quilted bags are a classic and instantly polish off any outfit.

Panther or Puma?

Top: Chanel

Skirt: Alloy

Belt: Vintage

statement belt

This outfit is really simple with a basic black ruched sleeve top (it’s actually my work top from when I used to work at Chanel). I wore it with this subtle snake pattern skirt just to keep in theme with the animal style. The belt is vintage and has cool black and gold embellishments with what I think its a Panther? Maybe a Puma but either way its some kind of wildcat statement belt. For winter I’d probably wear it with black tights and covered wedges.

Backstreets Back again, again?

How many times has Backstreet been back? Although I have shamelessly been a BSB fan since I was 13…well no, 11, I feel like I’ve heard this before. But since this is a fashion blog lets take a walk down memory lane with the fashion evolution of the Backstreet Boys.

1994 fresh on the scene

backstreets back

Mid to late 90’s, Brian’s outfit reminds me of Corey Matthew’s style from Boy Meets World

Early 2000’s. Eeeeeshh!..

2006, getting better..i guess

And today. AJ’s sunglasses have always seemed to be part of the band throughout the years.

Well, no matter how many times BSB reunites again and again, I’m always happy they do.

Backstreets Back ALRIGHT!

Here are 3 simple ways to dress for Spring without trying too hard;)

1) Horizontal Stripes

Stripes are a classic spring pattern and horizontal stripes (rather than vertical) will give a more casual, relaxed look. (NORDSTROM.COM, OLDNAVY.COM)

 

2) A Colored Shoe

Add a subtle pop of color since the season calls for brighter shades by wearing colored laces and muted tones. (SPERRYTOPSIDER.COM, SHOES.COM)

 

3) Light Wash Denims

Styling Debbie’s Office Look

Here is how I styled my friend Debbie’s office attire. She works in a creative field as a talented graphic designer for Mixbook, so I wanted this outfit to be fun yet professional. Since its spring, we went with a pastel purple blouse and cream boucle blazer. Next, a statement necklace pulls the whole look together for a feminine chic style.

Blazer: Lumiere

Blouse: American Rag

Necklace: Bay to Baubles (available at Stitch Fix)

Pants: Mossimo

Booties: Fioni
