Red Carpet Highlights: {The Emmy's 2012}

Here are just a few of my favorite looks from the carpet this year.  I love the play with color, texture and the feminine silhouette.  I also like seeing the mirror image of the celebrity in the gown that was formally just on the runway, seeing exactly how it came to be styled.

Style File: {Michelle Williams}

Her pixie hair cut makes her look incredibly youthful in a good way.  The looks that are put together for her are seemingly timeless with a modern edge.  She looks radiant, and femininity is an important aspect to the outfits she wears.

The Latest: {Orangesicle}

Candied stripes that are the perfect shade of neon orange. I got this top in the middle of summer and have been wearing it non-stop (also seen here).  I love the loose fit and seemingly enough, when you find something that just works it becomes a contender to be an instant repeat.

And before we get to my outfit, check out an "outfit of the day" video from my favorite vlogger Daily Grace, she's got style and a comedic wit to match.

Off the Runway: {Velvet}

Velvet is such a rich fabric in texture and as I see it appear every year around this time, it reminds me that the weather is slowly but surely changing into cooler temperatures.  While entering into the fall season, the pairing of this soft fabric with the rich jewel tones and neutral stand-bys adds a sense of elegance and wearability, showing that it's a reoccurring addition of seasonal transition into the colder months.

The Latest: {Adventure Time}

You'd think that these olive green pants are practically the only ones I own but I admit I wear them often (last seen here and here) and whenever I get the chance to snap some pics of an outfit I happen to be wearing these very pants.  Aside from that minor detail, last week my sister and I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon in Seattle just being our goofy selves, enjoying the somewhat bi-polar shift of the weather that day.

Style File: {Blake Lively}

Love the California summer ease in her looks with the connection to runway fashion.  From the outfits I've showcased, you can notice that she knows her body and can pick out great dresses that are both flirty and polished.  I personally love a dress cause it's easy to wear and you'll look instantly put together in it.

Current Cravings: {Drop-Waist Dress}

I have simply fallen in love with the design of a drop-waist dress.  I adore a recent look I saw on one of my favorite blog reads here.  They are fun, flirty, and have a timeless vibe that is reminiscent of a classic style and also nods to the more modern trends to come.
