Scout Style: Cropped Flares

Posted on February 15th, by Melanie

Cropped Flares are here to stay; at least for this season! I got this high waisted pair at J.Crew at the end of winter. I wasn’t sure how I felt at first, but I am really loving it. I think it’s nice to see a new denim style and a way to update our denim wardrobe.

I prefer a style that hits right above the ankle with a slight flare. I think it’s great for Spring with a flat sandal or dressed up with a strappier heel.

For a transitional look I paired it with my favorite Mer-Sea Travel Wrap! Love their new style that has pockets! This also makes a GREAT gift if you are looking for Mother’s Day or graduation ideas.

Jeans: J.Crew, Wrap: Mer-Sea, Bag: Chloe, Sunglasses: Barton-Perreira “airman”, Shoes: Old but similar here, Earrings by EB Leatherworks

Cheap and Chic: Fall Outerwear all under $150!

Posted on November 10th, by Melanie

Outerwear is one of my favorite things to buy! I am stressing about this winter because my husband accidentally put all of my coats into storage!!!!! I have bought a few new things to get me through this season, but I will definitely be missing my favorite coats. I have been shopping for inexpensive pieces to get me through this winter.

There are so many fun outerwear trends this season; so if you have not bought a coat in a while now is your chance. I love all of the faux fur trim on dressier and even casual coats; Moto jackets with fur or fleece trim, oversized car-coats, the vest, capes and ponchos.

If you are a girl on a budget…or you just want to buy a few new coats 🙂 Here is a really fun roundup; most under $100!

Trend Watch: The Cold Shoulder

Posted on February 25th, by Melanie

With a  warm weather vacation on the horizon, I am getting extra excited for spring clothing. I am absolutely loving the open shoulder look for spring. It’s boho, yet very feminine at the same time. Great shoulders are a very sexy part of a woman’s body without showing too much, if you know what I mean. We are seeing this trend in both dresses and tops for Spring.

The It Earring

Posted on January 30th, by Melanie

They have been popping up on celebrities and super models everywhere; the “it” accessory for 2015 is the ear cuff.

Here Emma Watson is sporting a diamond “ear crawler” which is absolutely stunning…


I am loving the trend of a daintier earring making a comeback. Especially in a diamond or solid cold cuff as seen here on Rosie Huntington Whitely. By Anita Ko (sold at Tivol in Kansas City!)


If Cuffs are little too trendy, go for the ear jacket. These are personally my favorite. It is a stud with a piece that hangs underneath the ear lobe.

and if you really want to make a statement, there are a lot of fun ear cuffs that are bold with sparkle. We are seeing the return of the asymmetrical look with one big cuff and a smaller stud in the other ear.


Whatever your style is, there is a “cuff”, “jacket” or “crawler” to round out your earring collection this Spring…
