I’ve been really digging all the blue I’ve been seeing lately. From Indigo to powder baby blue - it’s all good. I even love it mixed together - try pairing a striped navy tee with a printed baby blue pencil skirt! 

And now we’re on Polyvore! Find us below. We’re slightly addicted.

Today we are tickled pink to have Rue Magazine feature us on the style section!  We’re talking about how to Dress for the Office.

Our emphasis for the day:  the high waisted trouser!  They’re having a major moment, and we wanted to show y’all a few ways to rock them!

OUTFIT : Me + My ONA

We are so thrilled about a recent feature on us over at the ONA bag blog! They were so kind as to ask us a few questions about photography, style and our blog. It was a fun feature to be a part of and the best part is that I get compliments on my bag ALL. THE. TIME. so it’s fun to spread the love.

I thought that since they shared a few of my new headshots I did recently for my new website this would be the perfect opportunity to share a few more taken by the super talented Jessica Burke! Seriously, she’s too good.

On to more from the Runway! I saw so many incredible gowns that I considered changing my profession to actress just so I could have an excuse to go to a movie premier or, you know, THE OSCARS, so I could wear something this fabulous. 

My favorite gowns were Naeem Khan… it was a gorgeous 20s art deco affair. So Gatsby of him.

Naeeeeem! You rascal you.

Badgley Mischka also had some stunners that I would be remiss not to mention.

Some of them even us mere mortals could wear even if one was not invited to a red-carpet event.

My personal favorite : I don’t know if it’s one piece or two but I’ll take it either way.

I am dying over all the jewel tones, especially the emerald.

What do you think? We would love to hear from you, I’ll be posting all our runway pics on our facebook page and whether you love it, hate it, or predict you’ll see it on the red carpet we’d love to know.

Our last fashion week post is tomorrow, are you sick of it yet? No? Great.

OUTFIT: Blue Blazer + Baubles

I love this outfit because Kat actually photographed my last outfit in this number.  
It’s the perfect mix of color + polish, two of the basic core beliefs here at The Refined Woman.
The touch of gold in her Bauble Bar necklace is repeated in her belt + her gold loafers. Truthfully, you can never have enough gold… don’t you think?
Blue Blazer:  Zara similar 
Blue Collared Shirt:  Madewell similar 
Bauble Necklace:  Bauble Bar
Belt:  Old similar 
Jeans:  The Gap 
Gold Loafers:  GH Bass

OUTFIT: Hunter Boots to the Rescue

image

This outfit was clutch for the last wedding I photographed in San Francisco with Emily Scott.  Literally from the moment we drove up to the Bride’s house until we left the reception it was RAINING.  Not misting but pretty much pouring buckets, and need I remind you that it is winter?  My hunter boots were one of those purchases that I was not so sure about because of the price, but over and over again they have come through to shining victory for me!

Blazer:  Zara
