{ Neutrals + Lace } Lunch Date!

I love the look of an over-sized blazer. Yes, as you can tell I am obsessed with everything blazers right now. I just feel that they go with every single outfit and make it so, so chic! I wore this little look to a lunch date with my husband. We had a few gorgeous days in NJ last week... not so much this week though, it has been in the 20's and below - brrr! I have to be honest, I hate winter... I hate coats. 
wants to cover up a fab little outfit?

{ Purples + Tweed }

I had been dying to wear this blazer that I purchased on Black Friday. Tweed is super in for this winter season and I love the symmetrical zipper, gives it a little fab touch.
You would not believe how much I paid for this blazer, $20! I just knew I had to have it.
I love that blazers are so versatile and they can go from casual to business-like to fabulous! 

This is how I wore it, a little business chic, I like to call it boss-lady-fab ! ; )

[ PS: The shoes look bluer than they are they are more of a royal purple ]

{ A Little Chic + A Little Rocker }

This has got to be one of my favorite outfits right now. The weather has been amazing in NJ... 50 degrees in January, I'll take it! I love dressing up but the freezing cold winter makes it that much more difficult...so anytime I can just wear a blazer with my outfit I am happy.

Have I told you how overly obsessed I am with blazers right now? I wear them with everything, casual, elegant, it is my closet staple of the moment. I love this outfit because it was so comfortable and so stylish at the same time. I've had this skirt for years, probably 5 or 6. And it is one of my favorite closet pieces. It is amazing for any season. You can see how I wore it for a holiday party HERE. My boots I purchased from DSW a few years back, they are Sam Edelman and absolutely fab! Take a look at the curved heel. Here are some pics! Tell me what you think...














  

Top: Topshop
Blazer: H&M

What do you think of this look? What is your closet staple?

{ Weekend Style } Shopping Trip + Baby Shower Outfits

With a part time job and a full time business... in addition to being mommy to a 1 year old and wife to a super supportive husband... I am finding it harder and harder to find the time to take photos for the blog with my professional camera, so I apologize for the lack of great quality pics, lately they are all being taken in my bedroom with my phone, I am trying though! Just give me a couple weeks to get this time management together :)

I do update my Instagram with up to the minute photos so follow me there too! With that said here are this weekends outfits!

I wore this casual little outfit for a shopping trip to the mall yesterday. I am in complete love with these boots, they are comfortable and stylish.
Top: TopShop
Sweater: Forever21
Pants: H&M
Boots: Forever21 


And today I had a baby shower to attend. I fell in love with these pants the moment I saw them and knew I had to have them. They are chic and fun. I decided to wear a solid silk blouse with it since the pants have so much going on. JCPenney had this amazing sale going on and I had to have a couple things.

{ Happy New Year } Outfit!

I love dressing up for the holidays and of course NYE is my favorite one! I love reminiscing about all that happened and all that we either accomplished or being proud of any bumps on the road that we overcame. It is such a great way to start all over again and have new goals + dreams!

I knew I wanted to wear this ivory skirt I scored at H&M some time in the early fall, so it was no question I would be wearing light colors.







Top: Topshop
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Aldo
Bracelets: Nordstroms, Lola Blue + Forever 21

Happy 2013!

2012 { a year of blogging }

For me, 2012 came and went so quickly, I can't believe it's January 2nd already! I wanted to do a little recap of my favorite events and looks this past year. As a modern mom + wife I love to have very versatile pieces in my closet. But still somewhat comfortable but always fab. I love fashion and always have, 
so dressing up for me is much more than just a daily task ;) 

Cheers to a new year, thank you so much for following me whether on FacebookTwitter or Instagram
It has been a great year for Lola Blue, so many new people I have met virtually or in person and 
I wouldn't change a thing. I even launched Lola Blue, the closetmy online jewelry boutique! 
That definitely was my cherry on top for 2012. But here are some of my favorite looks from last year. 
















Thank you for making this an amazing year for me,
 I love what I do and I appreciate your support every day.

xo,
E.
