I am not sure what I love most about this bag — the small size, the cone studs or that red tag!

How about the multiple ways to carry it.

Fendi brings a modern edge to this lightly structured small shoulder bag, featuring versatile detailing and fabulous color ways. The By the Way bag has flat straps on the sides that are perfect for sliding over your hand and carrying as a chic clutch, or use them as top handles for a sophisticated satchel-inspired style. Of course crossbody is certainly a great option.

The gray-blue color is delightful for spring, and all year round, for that matter.

If you didn't notice, the bomber made a big comeback this fall. And into spring it goes

While there are many to choose from, I am most excited about these. Valentino, Saint Laurent and Kenzo bring on the style personality with bright, cheery colors and prints, just in time for spring. These lightweight jackets amp up any outfit, from jeans to flirty skirts. And if you happen to prefer dark solids, they have those, too.

There has never been a year when I haven't wished you Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I missed every single one of those this time around and I feel horrible. Crazed and dazed I have been. Styling has been at an all-time high, the health component to my business continues to grow and add to that life in general — I got lost in it all. And I apologize.

I love heading into a fresh new year. 2017 is going to teach me a thing or two. Especially in time management. Making an impact, whatever the capacity, continues to be my focus. For my family. My friends. My clients. With my faith wrapped around them all.

As I forge ahead, I plan to take notes along the way to ensure I stay aligned with my purpose. It's that important to me. Not to bring on pressure. Just to hold myself accountable. In all areas of my life.

What has 2016 taught you? And what do you want to get out of 2017?

The last few months have been a whirlwind of styling. And in that time, I have come across some amazing pieces to help my clients step outside of the box and inject splashes of fun into their wardrobes.

Of course what we wear serves a purpose, a function. However, what we wear is also an extention of our personality. It's what we communicate to the world about us, a little bit at a time. Staying true to your individual style is important. But know, there is absolutely nothing wrong with adding a few surprises into the mix. The giddy factor is ever important.

This bold, color block coat in an argyle design does just that. MSGM got it right by providing both typical and atypical outerwear this season. Tailored in Italy from wool-blend felt, this cocooning style is finished with smooth satin lining that effortlessly slips over shirts, knitwear and dresses.

In this case, it's in the form of a necklace by Devon Leigh.

The mix of wide link chain, faceted aquamarine beads and the carved cross pendant makes this piece special and interesting. Well traveled.

Devon Leigh features one-of-a-kind edgy designs that create a stir. Winner of the Dallas Fashion Award and Rising Star Award nominee, this Los Angeles native combines a modern mix of natural semiprecious stones and rich metals. Her work is continually evolving, showcasing pieces that reflect her vision. 

Pair this with a basic foundation and level up your style.
