“Wear Blue for Oceans” day is coming up on January 13th. Ocean conservation is a cause that I’m very passionate about. When is to comes to protecting the environment, I feel that many people tend to overlook the ocean. To get us thinking more about the importance of protecting our oceans, from now until Wear Blue for Oceans I’d like to regularly feature blue clothing and accessories that can help show your support for this cause AND make a major fashion statement. To get us started, I picked a few blue accessories which will add a brilliant dash of color to your outfit.

Black Friday (or Black Wednesday for me)

Happy Thanksgiving, fellow fashion addicts! It is no surprise that during  the last week, my house has been bombarded with catalogs, coupons and other mail promotions for the post-Thanksgiving sales. By yesterday (Wednesday), I couldn’t take it anymore. I just had to go shopping and here is what I ended up with:

Red and White Rasolli Rainboots, Writer's Own

Blue cardigan and safari print scarf, Writer's Own

Clearly, I was feeling quite inspired by color! Probably because the weather was extra gloomy.

Now I’ve gotten it out of my system and don’t have to be up at the crack of dawn on Friday, getting trampled at the stores. No, instead I’ll be at my laptop, checking out all of the crazy deals online and, hopefully, posting some of my favorite finds. Happy Turkey Day!

Lucky Brand Scarves

The time to bundle up and keep your neck warm is just around the corner for many of us. Here in the Northeast, the air is quickly becoming crisp and chilly. I have a meeting this afternoon and will definitely be wearing a light scarf.

If you haven’t been to Lucky Brand lately, they have some really fantastic scarves right now. Some are warm winter scarves, while others are made of lighter fabrics that will get you through the fall. Without a doubt, the first thing that stands out about Lucky’s scarves is their hippie-esque flavor. If boho-chic is your style philosophy of choice, then Lucky Brand should be your first stop. You can wear these scarves with casual jeans and a tee shirt or use them to top off warmer garments such as blazers and jackets with some much-needed color and pattern.
