DK's Favorite Trends

I don't know about you but I'm ready for a fresh start this week!

Even though I was on vacation, my blogger self certainly wasn't. We traveled to Key West and Marathon Florida for my 30th birthday. Those of you who know me know that I have a fabulous Aunt that has lived there for many, many years. Marathon feels very much like a second home so we thought it would be more than appropriate to make that Theo's first trip. More on that part of our trip Friday.

Back to my Aunt. She and her also fabulous friend Donna opened an amazing unique boutique that has just some of the coolest pieces! Every time I get a chance to shop there I am all over it. From basic cami's (which are to die for soft) to perfectly patterned jumpsuits there is something for everyone. But I started thinking from the perspective of owning a boutique and how their personal style and current fashion favorites influence what goes in the store. So I thought I would ask.

The question:

What is your favorite current trend?

Their answer:

Statement earrings (check out Donna's!), bell and ruffle sleeves, and pants with prints.


It was great hearing from people in the industry and getting to visit DK's Style Hut.

I love a great fast outfit no matter what the season but this summer jumpsuit is so perfect when you don't feel like thinking about an outfit or only have a few minutes for a quick change. Also for a loose jumpsuit, add a belt to add some shape to the look!

They still have some of these fab jumpsuits in stock and they have free shipping!

Have a great Monday Pretties!


Hello, May!

I've always been one to celebrate my Birth Month pretty hard. And since it's the 31st I get allll month. It's a big birthday so I'm really ready to party. Haha! But I thought this would be the perfect time to roll out my ever so slightly newer blog concept. 

My Main Three

As people we are constantly evolving. It would be bad if we didn't right? I feel like blogging over the years has been so fun for me because it's my own little tiny corner to use as my creative outlet and even though there are many (many many many) blogs out there I have always stayed true to myself and what inspires me.   

I've decided to break my blog down into three sections.

Fast Fashion

I love being able to talk about fashion as it is something that I am deeply passionate about. So I'll continue to bring you the quick fashion tips, favorite trends, and such.

Perfectly Plated

This will be all about the kitchen (and then some). I've always posted recipes here but I've gotten more and more into cooking, baking, and hosting over the years. I'm going to focus on a few different things here. Uncomplicating recipes that seem too scary to make, fast healthy dishes, delicious not so healthy recipes, and whatever inspires me along the way. Get ready for tons of brunch things, stack recipes, appetizers, and plenty of tips and tricks to make you love you kitchen even more.

My (Friday) Martini Moment

Totally staying the same and what a better way to start the weekend? Whatever I have going on that week or what I'm into at the moment I'm gonna share it with you! Including a delicious drink recipe of course. I wouldn't be me without one of those.  


Thank you to everyone who has stopped by my blog through the years and thank you for the continued kind words about it. I appreciate it more than you know! 


Improving Your Own Style

Hello and Happy Monday!

I'm starting this week with some serious ways to improve the style you already have.  Before I say this let me first say that each persons style is their own and if you love it then that is simply that. But here are five fashion tips that could help you elevate your current style. 

1. You're dressed head to toe in all the current trends. It's just too much. Pick a favorite trend and only wear that. For example, I've always loved bee's but thanks to Gucci they are everywhere! And my Steve Madden flats are my go to shoe at the moment but they make a pretty big statement. So when I wear them I tone down everything else. 

2. Pick an era you love and emulate it. I love a more edgy glam look myself so I've always been drawn to the Gatsby Era and the 50's when people actually cared about what they looked like. Again with the over doing it, I know someone who just loves the 60's and why wouldn't you? It was an amazing time. But she'll wear a birdcage on her head every day. It's a bit much. Blend your right now style with the era you love. 

3. Don't panic shop. This was a lesson I absolutely learned the hard way. You've got an event coming up but you put off getting something to wear until the last minute and before you know it you're sweaty in a dressing room hating everything or paying $35 for overnight shipping on something you aren't even sure about. The fix? Shop all the time! Kidding. I can see my MK cringing reading that. So maybe not all the time but always stay on the lookout for a great dress that you love, or amazing pieces that you know you can make a great look out of. 

4. Only wear things you love. I've purchased things that I thought could work you know if I put it with this or that. I didn't love the fabric but it could work. Turns out not so much. I never wear those pieces because I didn't love them. Buy what you truly love. Your wallet and closet space will thank you. 

5. Wear things over again. This is something that I really had to work on myself. I have an off white coat that I deeply love and wear it all the time. Its a huge cold weather staple for me. From helicopter dates, exploring Paris, or just a night out. Learn to love your staples!


So I pray your coffee is really hot but not too hot and your day goes smoothly.
