Gingham & Off The Shoulder

I am officially back my friends and I know it's been a long time. Don't get me wrong, it felt nice to disconnect for a bit but it definitely wasn't planned for and it was for way too long. I needed to take some time off to spend it with family. Although I believe in hard work and being an overachiever, a sudden and very unfortunate family matter led me to shift gears for a bit. Everything is slowly falling into place but it's about time that I got back to doing what I love the most.

There are some major changes coming your way and I can't wait to share. Studs and Sapphires will soon be your go-to for fashion, beauty, and everything else in between. I can't reveal too much but I hope you stick around to find out more. 

For this high impact look, start off with silhouettes first when styling pieces that you want tailored to your body. If you choose a top that it loose-fitting or has some volume, make sure you keep the bottoms more form framing. I love any off the shoulder detail and it's such a strong trend this spring and summer season. Have fun with this detail! I opted for simple black jeans because the focal point of this entire look is the gingham ruffle and shoulder detail. Don't forget to accessorize! Your outfit will quickly feel complete with a statement piece, such as a straw hat.

Key Wardrobe Pieces

Growing up, I remember my mom telling me a quote that I absolutely love; “you can have anything you want in life if you dress for it”. There is an undeniable connection between dressing the part to feel confident for your next opportunity and finding the key pieces to invest in. It’s all about classics and staple pieces that are innovative enough to make us feel our best. 

These key pieces never go out of style and will play a big part in your preparation process to land that big dream interview.  The wardrobe of my dreams always starts with a classic blazer and a wide leg trouser.

Growing up in a family of all boys, I always relied on Ted Baker for unique and tailored pieces for my brother and boyfriend. With both of them always dressing in tailored suits and various dress shirts for work, Ted Baker has and is still my first stop for all of their fashionable needs.

When asked to partner with Ted Baker, I shrieked from excitement because not only could I bring my “dress the part”motto to life but this time I could look past my usual men’s section and happily browse through their amazing women’s selections. After a long hour at the store, I did manage to grab a few things for the boys but I was able to bring my vision to life with this textured tailored jacket and crepe culottes

It’s important to build your wardrobe around key pieces that are classic and also will make you feel your best as you embark on the journey of your career goals. Dressing the part for me started at Ted Baker and they are offering 25% off across U.S and Canada stores on April 7th and 8th with an online exclusive beginning on April 6th. Stop by any of their stand-alone stores on Thursday, April 7th from 6-9pm for in-store events that include music, drinks, and a special gift with a purchase of $350 or more. P.S. If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it.

Spring Denim

With Spring comes along beautiful weather and a summer breeze that allows us to enjoy a walk in the late afternoon or sit outside on the porch for an afternoon coffee break. It's been feeling like Spring in Los Angeles and I can't stop styling these new straight cut jeans with raw hem lines from 7 for all Mankind's Spring Collection.

I love wearing destroyed jeans like this one with an ankle length finish because it allows you to show off  your heels. The knee holes are an added bonus and the "it" trend that's still everywhere! These jeans are the perfect cut for Spring and Summer and aside from pumps, they would look great with a pair of lace ups! (If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I have quite the obsession with lace up detailing on shoes!)

If you are obsessed with denim as much as me, you will fall in love with these flared bottoms, and these cropped white jeans for Spring! Their entire site is 30% off so make sure to take advantage of their Friends and Family Event happening now until 3/28. Everything is 30% off, including sale items! Just make sure to enter the promo code: FRIENDS30 at checkout.

What items are you obsessing over for Spring?
