Loving: Red and Leopard

I’m sure I won’t be alone when I say this: I am obsessed with leopard! When I was younger, I used to think leopard print could look a little streetwalker-esque… but this view has definitely changed and leopard has now become such a wardrobe neutral for me. What are your thoughts on leopard, do you see it as a neutral too? My favorite way to incorporate this chic print into an outfit is with a belt, heels or scarf.

For a burst of color, while still keeping things stylish, I can’t go past red! I also think it works perfectly with leopard and is a fun way to brighten up a dark outfit. After seeing this Olivia + Joy handbag on Olivia Palermo, I knew I had to have it…

STYLE Q&A WITH KAREN

What is your go-to look?  My go to look is classic and flatters my curves!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I love the vegan (faux) leather accent on everything! Sweatshirts, pants, blouses, jackets… I want it all!

What inspired you to start your blog?  I started blogging because I felt that it was the perfect opportunity to share three of my passions: Personal Styling, Coaching and being a Stella & Dot Stylist. As a licensed counselor and fashion enthusiast, my goal is to style my readers from the inside out.

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  I am definitely not a beauty product junkie, lol! However, I can appreciate Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Remover because it works like a dream! Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow always makes the perfect amount of sparkle and Bobbi Brown Dark Brow Kit also helps to keep my brows in shape.

How would you describe your style?  My style is a fusion of feminine, classic and occasionally trendy, as long as it fits in to my existing wardrobe. I have family and friends that look at something and can automatically say, “That’s Karen.” It used to bother me, but now I am embracing my signature style.
