Sherria’s Style File

by Sherria 

Sunny days in New York City gives me the inspiration to go outside and take pictures. I decided to mix and match pieces that I hadn’t put together before. I actually came out with a nice outfit. I like this set because you can wear it on the weekend or a casual day in the office. My outfit was featured on the Chloe + Isabel blog. Please check it out HERE.

Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s

by Sherria

By now, I assume you all have seen the commercials for J’Lo’s new clothing line at Kohl’s, but have you actually seen anyone wear the collection? Unless a celebrity creates a high-end brand like Gwen Stephani’s L.A.M.B., I’m usually a bit skeptical of celebrity clothing lines. Most of the time they “design” clothes they wouldn’t wear themselves. However, in a few of the J.Lo pieces, I can see her personality come through. There are a lot of pieces with fur and sequins. I could totally see the diva rocking those styles. I picked out a few items below that are work appropriate and can also add a little flavor to your weekend look. You can view the entire collection on Kohl’s website. Click here to view.

A*cute picks:

Simple Black Dress: 

Jennifer Lopez Shirred Surplice Dress (Kohl's, $45)

Stylish Cardigan:

Jennifer Lopez Faux-Fur Ribbed Sweater Coat (Kohl's, $58.80)

Over-the-knee boots:

Jennifer Lopez Over-the-knee boots (Kohl's, $89.99)

The Jennifer Lopez Collection is sold exclusively at Kohl’s Department Store. Click here to view press release.

Four Seasons

by Jackie

In an effort to save money, I always try to be creative when it comes to transitioning clothing from one season to another.  Last week, Sherria showed us how she used a cape to update her look. Another cold weather must-have is an open sweater (think cardigan with a blazer appeal).

Sherria wore an open sweater over her summer dress to make her look seasonally appropriate.

I layered an open sweater over my favorite tunic dress and cinched it all together with a belt.
