Inspiration | Closets

Many of us will most likely never have a Kardashian style and sized closet, but you can still have a gorgeous, functional closet within your own standards.

Magazines and Pinterest are filled with massive, covetable closets that are essentially rooms within themselves. However, for the great majority, a closet like that is not reality, nor will it ever be. And using those closets for your own inspiration tends to fall short because it’s difficult to mock the setup of a room that is formatted around custom built-ins. 

Lucky for you, I pulled together a few closets that are beautifully organized, functional and for the most part, within reach to curate in an average size home.

What I Wore | Animal Print Done Right

Animal print is so prevalent these days it’s beginning to become this fantastic printed neutral! Which who doesn’t love a great print to jazz up a basic look?

However, in my opinion, there is a way to wear animal print that is, um, how do I say this politely, not like anyone on Jersey Shore. Okay, great, you got the visual. That is exactly how I recommend you don’t wear animal print. Why be tacky when you can rock animal print classically?

Yesterday, I paired a muted animal print shift dress I got at J.Crew two years ago with a white honeycomb sweater over it with a necklace that had just enough weight to pop. Then, threw my favorite tan tweed blazer over that. Added black ribbed tights ( it was 20 degrees yesterday, people) and black heels and I was out the door.

Layering sweaters or long sleeve tees over dresses is one of my very favorite ways of maximizing my wardrobe options. Of course, it’s much easier to do with more basic dresses. Though, after styling my animal print shift into a more creative look I’m inspired to rethink my other printed dresses to extend their wear outside of ‘just a dress.’ I’ll keep you posted 😉

Diane Kruger | Style Moments

Diane Kruger embodies style. What we love about Diane is that you never know how you’re going to see her: sometimes sophisticated, sometimes sexy. Sometimes casual chic, others, a little retro.

However she decides to dress it up it’s always all her own. Completely effortless and elegant. Yes, even when she’s casually dressed in boyfriend jeans and a long blazer, she radiates elegance. For that, we would hate her, but why hate when you can adore?

Here’s a few of our favorite Diane Kruger style moments.

Winter Vacation Inspiration

The endless snow here in Ohio has us dreaming of a long weekend somewhere where laying pool or beach side is the only viable option. That’s why we’re obsessing over these amaze cover ups that look fantastic by the water and even better doubled as a chic shopping or tapas date ensemble on the sandy, sun-soaked streets of your vacation destination. We love maximizing our options 😉
