Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Summer Style – White and Leopard

Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This week I’m sharing a classic denim look, you can never go wrong with perfect skinny jeans, a crisp white shirt and gorgeous details… including a leopard belt, Ray-Ban sunglasses, wear-with-anything patent heels and the perfect classic designer handbag.

In case you haven’t heard yet, I have collaborated with beautiful actress and talk show host Tamera Mowry-Housley to hold a charity auction of designer pieces from her personal closet on Bloggers Closet… and bidding ends tonight!!

2013 Shay Cochrane

All proceeds from Tamera’s auction items, plus 10% of all sales site-wide until tonight will be donated to I Have A Dream Foundation. It’s an amazing time to shop for a cause! Don’t miss your chance to own gorgeous celebrity style – click here to see Tamera’s closet now!

Oh and don’t forget, I’m also selling lots of fabulous pieces from my closet too – you’ve seen them all here in Style Sessions! I’m having a big closet clean and would love to give them a new home by the end of this week! You can shop my closet here.

Meet Our Head Stylist…

 I’m delighted to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Joanna from Coastal Closet! I adore this bright outfit she recently linked up and the gold accessories are perfection…

How would you describe your style?  Mostly preppy, but I love to mix it up with outfits that have some edge. I am in love with neutrals… you will see me wearing navy, white and black a lot!

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  Gladiator sandals! My pair from Stuart Weitzman was my splurge of the summer. They go with absolutely everything.

What inspired you to start your blog?  About 70% of the time I work from home… and I was finding it hard to get out of my workout clothes everyday when my dog was the only one who would see me (who am I kidding, half my day is still spent in lululemon). ButI LOVE clothes and getting dressed up. The blog was a perfect way to share what I was wearing even if I didn’t leave the house. 

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Erase paste from Benefit, Mascara from Makeup Forever and Body Butter from Bed Bath and Beyond – Nothing moisturizers my skin like it (especially in the winter)!

What is your best beauty trick?  Eyebrow gel!! Nothing makes me angrier then when my eyebrows are all haywire. Gel keeps the shape all day.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? Sailing in the British Virgin Islands. My family used to take trips to cruise around the islands. I cant wait to go back!

Tell us something not many people know about you? wish I lived in the south! I love the preppy lifestyle of Charleston and Savannah… and the southern accent. If i could get away with saying y’all I would. My husband and I hope to retire down south, but for now I will take frequent visits below the mason dixon....
