This is the first Yumi Kim romper I've ever bought. But I will definitely be getting more! How cute are these floral patterns? Brilliant colors and a glass half full kinda mantra. They really do have a real positive vibe! ;-) If you've heard me talk about Yumi Kim before... she does great maxi dresses too. Scroll down to shop the look! Hope you enjoy the fashions and find one you like! PHOTOS: Anna Kooiman, Charlotte, NC, Rick Belden PhotographyRead More
This white lace, sheath dress is such a classy, 'wear anywhere' kind of dress! I think this will be a forever gold in my closet! It's by Michael Kors. It does run a little big. I am normally a US size 4. But I had to go down and get a US size 2. These glittery heels are fun aren't they?! They are also by Michael Kors and come in two separate heights: 4.3 inches.... and 3 inches. As for the fun pink peekaboo! The pink fan/tassel earrings are always such a fun surprise too. I have a million of these in different colors! The aviators sunnies are by Ray Ban. Make sure you scroll down to shop the look. Hope you see something you can't live without!

Today I had the chance to hang out with my Aussie morning TV friends on Network Ten's, Studio 10. Such a fun-loving team! I wore this great coral dress by Black Halo. Black Halo dresses typically have a tailored look and are very saturated in color (usually solids). I have a couple different coral dresses in my closet by Black Halo. My favorite part of this look isn't the dress though! It's the accessories! The pumps are navy blue with subtle bows at the toes. The bracelet has gold strands with pink crystals on each tip. The big earrings are a great color combo... brown and gold! The white handbag is Louis Vuitton.

I had a blast being a panelist for the hour on Sky News Australia's number one show, Paul Murray Live. I wore this fuchsia wrap dress by La Petite Robe Chiara Boni. The material is stretchy and forgiving so it's really flattering. This designer is known for brilliant, saturated colors. Fuchsia is one of my absolute favorite colors. It's feminine with out being too froo-froo. The gold cuff with pink accents, the gold crystal dangly earrings, and the white patterned pumps are all from J Crew. I enjoy being on Sky News' PML show. The host is very good. Murray makes you think, makes you laugh, makes you want to make change, and definitely makes you want to watch more!Read More
This plum dress with black leather accents around the shoulders is super classy. It's by Amy Matto. The cut is form fitting yet forgiving. It hits just above the knee. I had the opportunity to go on Sky News Australia's number one show again last night. Paul Murray is a really good broadcaster and is so welcoming every time I'm on his set. As far as the rest of the look goes.... the plum pumps and black leather bracelet are both from Jcrew. The large, crystal, post earrings are from Anthropologie.

Neutral tones and sequins are an unsuspecting yet perfect pair. Classy and elegant with a touch of pizazz. The neutral tones mute the scream that sparkle can sometimes bring... the kind that causes a dress to enter the room before the woman. It's all about the girl in the dress... not the just the dress right!? The under layer of this dress is nude in color. That hue combined with its fitted naturekeeps the tailored look... despite having a looser overlay.
I declare! I will wear this dress until the sequins fall off! I've probably worn it too many times as is. It was a West Village staple while I was living there. Hey! If there are different people at the events you're going to... and the dress is a hit... Do you really have to wear something new every time!? Every time I got to give it to GoodWill... I think... I'll just wear it ONE more time! Do you have any dresses like that?
Check out my handpicked goodies below. As always... let me know on social media if you find something that jives with your style!

Black Halo is tops. TOPS! Great designer. Today I got to be on Studio 10 again. ;-) A lovely morning show on Australia's Network 10. I wore this white, mesh detailed silhouette dress called, 'The Cicero.' But every time I wear a Black Halo dress I feel like I've picked a winner from my closet. They are typically quite fitted and almost look like they were perfectly personally tailored... seriously! So the dress is Black Halo. Silver sparkly peep toe pumps are Michael Kors. The silver and blue crystal bracelet is from Nordstrom in NC. The blue crystal earrings were a bridesmaids' gift from a wedding I was recently in down South. ;-)Read More
