Pink

by fromsugarwithstyle

Pink is one of those colors that almost every girl had as a favorite when they were little. I was no exception. I grew up with my walls painted a pale baby pink and easily chose my clothes in different pink shades. Now that I’m older my clothing choices have gotten a bit more sophisticated but I still love adding a pop of bright pink to outfits to really make a statment…These are a few pieces that when not warn all together can be a bold addition to your wardrobe.

INTELLIGENTSIA

by fromsugarwithstyle

With the hustle and bustle of every day life it’s hard to make time to see all of your favorite people. I know that I find myself talking about meeting up with someone MONTHS before we actually get together. Maybe its about being busy or maybe its just a lifestyle that living in Los Angeles brings about. Either way I am trying to take more time this year to see the people I care about. One of the easiest ways to get together is over a cup of coffee. The time commitment isn’t huge ( although most of the time I end up chatting for hours ) and it’s very budget friendly.  One of my favorite places to go in LA is intelligentsia. The coffee and tea are excellent and the atmosphere is as eclectic as it comes, which makes for some great people watching.

Golden Globes- Best Dressed

by fromsugarwithstyle

As every awards show goes the morning after is full of people talking about the best and worst dressed of the night. I am all for giving people props for wearing something fabulous but I am not into knocking people down for wearing something they loved. This is why I only will post my BEST dressed choices of the night.

IRO

by fromsugarwithstyle

Sometimes when I need a little fashion inspiration I go looking for designers and brands that I am unfamiliar with and browse their collections. Most of the time the ones I fall in love with are completely out of my price range but they still tend to excite me about trends I could add into my wardrobe or unique ways I could wear things I already have….I fell a bit behind with IRO and had never looked at their collections until a couple of days ago. I feel in love with just about all of their pieces. Although completely not in my budget I did enjoy getting some ideas! Here are some of my favorites.IMG SRC=”

Practicing What I Preach- Socks

by fromsugarwithstyle

According to my 31 Days Of Creating A Wardrobe-Socks post ( seen here ) there are certain socks and tights that are must haves for your closet. This is my second post detailing that I do practice what I preach and don’t just write about it!. This is a picture of my sock wardrobe that is absolutely essential to my closet ( or in this case, dresser ). As I have said before a wardrobe has to start from the bottom up and putting on a nice, clean, appropriate pair of socks when needed is a necessity that is often overlooked.

White Jeans

by fromsugarwithstyle

P There seems to be so many rules concerning when its appropriate to wear white jeans. I have a hard time thinking that any of them are true. I wouldn’t recommend choosing white as an option when traveling but that has more to do with getting them dirty then being seasonally acceptable.  Here are some examples of white jeans at their best. Just make sure when trying to duplicate them you are wearing nude underwear! ( see more must have underthings here )Picture found herePicture found  here

2012

by fromsugarwithstyle

Happy New Year everyone!

These past few weeks have been a whirlwind of traveling, working, visiting with friends and family, cooking, shopping AND…..

GETTING ENGAGED!

 

( forgive my chipping nail polish )

The love of my life gave me a ring on Christmas day in front of my whole family. He brought me a giant box which when opened turned into a smaller box, then a smaller box and so on until I got to a little box that is going to change my life forever. Each of the boxes were wrapped perfectly and covered with Christmas bows! I wish I had a picture of them all to show you! My family was all standing around  taking pictures and video and I was shaking so hard it took me a while to stand up and show my ring off! What a wonderful Christmas morning this was!

I apologize for being away for so long but as you can see its been a pretty exciting time! I am now looking forward to making FromSugarWithStyle even better over this coming year! Here’s to an exciting and blessed 2012!!!
