Style It: Feather Tops

If you know us by now, you know we love feathers! We created a cute line of sleeveless feather tops perfect for Spring and Summer and today we’re showing you how to style them.







Your favorite ripped jeans are the perfect pair for this pretty pink flamingo feather top. We love the addition of pink pumps, pink aviator sunnies (#stylesteal only $28!) and a pink lip. Feminine and flirty = perfection.

This look is effortless and classic. We love the pop of leopard, cool blue aviators and red lip combination. This black feather top can be easily dressed up or down – try it with a pencil skirt for a fun evening or office look!

Can you say perfect cubicles to cocktails look?! The pop of pink blazer makes this top totally office appropriate. Just remove the blazer, add on-trend mirrored sunnies and nude pumps and your ready for drinks with the girls.





We have this thing with lemons 🙂 This top is a must-have this Summer, we can’t wait to pair it with white distressed denim and platform pumps for rooftop drinks!

Style It: Chic Happens Sweatshirt

I’m not a casual kind of girl and I’ll be honest, I don’t ever wear sweats or sweatshirts but since designing my own I realized, wow these are comfortable!  How did I not wear these before?  The hardest part for me at first was how do I wear these without looking “too” casual.    So I paired my Chic Happens Sweatshirt with a classic chambray shirt, ripped jeans (my favorite right now) and some leopard pumps.

Change out my pumps with some comfy converse sneakers to run around with my kids and I’m set for the weekend.  How do you wear sweatshirts?

And yes I literally took these photos a week and a half ago and now the snow is all gone. Yes to spring!
