Style Sessions: Weekly Link-up

Welcome to the Style Sessions link-up! I’m so excited you’re here. I believe we all have an inner Rachel Zoe and the opportunity to share this shouldn’t just be reserved for those who have a show on Bravo. Whether Vogue is your religion and WhoWhatWear your bible, or you’re just a girl who likes to be confident in what you wear, this link-up is for you!

If you coerced your spouse into doing a full fashion shoot, took a couple of quick ‘selfies’, or are on a budget / camera shy and would like to create a ‘virtual outfit’ – join us here every Tuesday from 4pm PST.

Be Featured As Head Stylist!
Each week, I will select one person to be featured as Head Stylist in the next Style Sessions. This is a fantastic opportunity to really showcase your style to everyone!

Be Inspired!
My vision is for this to be like one giant girls night in (or a shopaholics anonymous meeting), where we can share our own unique style, favorite outfits, latest fashion loves and hopefully be inspired with new ideas!

Be A Winner!
While you’re here, if you’d love to win a beautiful new spring dress from The Impeccable Pig, a cute bow bracelet by Jessica Simpson, gift cards and ad space – enter the Giveaway now!

To join Style Sessions, I ask that you please, pretty please follow my blog (via GFC, Email, Twitter, Facebook or Bloglovin’) and provide a link back to this post or add the button to your blog. And because this is new, I’d be so appreciative of any tweets to spread the word!

My Weekend Style…
If you’re a regular, you may have noticed my love for leopard! This weekend was no different, I adore mixing this print with warm colors like gold and cream. I’m also loving blazers, they just work with everything! One of my favorite things is to find pieces with something unique, like the slightly military style shoulder detail of this jacket. And let’s not forget ballet flats, a staple in every wardrobe! I recently hit the Steven Madden sale and picked up just the right amount of new shoes (or if you ask Chris, he would say “far too many”… tomato / tomatoe!) I love the patent toe and quilted design.

Scarf:  Nordstrom  |  Earrings:  Top Shop  |  Bracelets:  Tiffany & Co.

Meet Our Head Stylist…

This week, the gorgeous Shannon from Shannon Hearts will be our Head Stylist! I’m truly so excited to introduce you, Shannon not only creates the most beautiful fashion photography, she is also one of the sweetest bloggers I’ve been lucky enough to meet. 

When I saw her latest outfit (below), it was love at first sight – everything about this look is perfection! I love the pops of color and fun heart tee…

T-Shirt:  Wildfox  Jacket: Nanette Lepore  Jeans: Paige  Shoes: Pour la Victoire  Clutch: c/o GiGi New York  Earrings: c/o Hamilton Jewelers  Bracelet: c/o Hamilton Jewelers

Style Q&A with Shannon:

What is your favorite wardrobe piece?  Lately I’ve been obsessed with blazers. I know it’s a bit boring, but I’d say my favorite wardrobe piece is my basic black blazer. It is so versatile and looks great with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to my favorite dresses.

Describe your style in three words?  I’d like to think my style is natural, feminine and classic.

Best piece of fashion advice?  Wear what makes you feel pretty and don’t worry about what other people think.  

Discover more of Shannon’s fabulous style and get to know her personally at Shannon Hearts!

Join the link-up now and share your style!

P.S  I’ve also told everyone about this on What I Wore Wednesday, A Lovely Blog Hop and Random Wednesday!




  1. Ballet flats are definitely a wardrobe staple, and your new ones are so cute!
    I love her heart t-shirt as well!

  2. Is it just my computer, or is the linky tools not letting us access others’ pages? It asks me to enter a username and password..?

  3. I’ve just been emailing with Brent from Linky Tools – it’s a big problem at their end and they’re working to fix it now!! He said it should be back working in a few mins… yay!! So we’ll all be able to visit each other very soon!
