Think in GOLD: All about the talented music folk at the 2016 Grammys

Tonight’s the Grammys. So, my red carpet commentary has returned. Let’s get started!

gettyimages-510437992 Kacey Musgraves: Well, her hair and makeup look simplistic yet really pretty. I’m not a fan of the dress– it’s the sparkles and the colors…

Here’s what it resembles to me:

Doesn’t it though? I’m not sure looking like a childhood picture book is what every Hollywood starlet wants to resemble on music’s biggest night…

gettyimages-510436478 Charlie Puth: One, I’m totally obsessing over his voice and latest hits on the radio! And second, I love that he’s wearing a GLITTER suit! So epic! And cool for a guy. It’s so easy for a guy to throw on a plain tux, but he’s made fashion for guys and way less mundane than most men on a red carpet.

CbSwpQ5XEAAlj78 #BFFGoals, anyone? Besties Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez show up totally glam in their bright-colored gowns. As Gomez told Ryan Seacrest, she chose her Calvin Klein sparkly blue dress by asking herself, ‘What would I do if I was going on a date…and my date is Taylor Swift.’ And who else could rock a crop top/color-blocking gown (Atelier Versace) on a red carpet like Swift? But, I’m not a huge fan of her hair cut… Don’t get me wrong, it’s well done; I just don’t like how it resembles a vintage-y vibe, yet that’s not really her brand anymore?? But, I’ll forgive since everything else is impeccable.

rs_634x1024-160215151408-634-elle-king-2016-grammy-awards-arrivals-21516 Oh boy, Elle King… *shaking my head* Wow oh wow, this is um…. a hot mess? There’s just so much happening, with different lengths, fringy, feathers, lace– it’s just way too much. Blech: hurts my eyes a little.

rs_634x1024-160215150941-634-2016-Grammy-Awards-tori-kelly Tori Kelly looks stunning! Also, embracing her inner “Old Hollywood” actress vibe in this green, fitted gown. While it may be a bit much for the funky awards, she is nominated for New Artist, so I’ll let her have this one, since it’s such a huge moment for the new singer…

rs_634x1024-160215160529-634-adele-grammy-awards-arrivals-21516 OH MY GOSH, Adele in this Givenchy is perfection!! Not to mention it’s a CUSTOM gown. Wow, she looks incredible. Gorgeous. End of story.

rs_634x1024-160215162458-634.demi-lovato.cm.21516 Newcomer to the Grammys, Demi Lovato looks flawless in her tailored gown/suit look. And her hair is perfection. However, what is the chain necklace thing with the three pop tabs in the middle? Is she raising awareness for the Ronald McDonald House? (I mean that would be great, but I’m not sure if that’s what it really is…)

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 8.00.12 PM John Legend and Chrissy Teigen always look flawless on the red carpet and here is no exception. It’s just extra adorable with added element of being their first family red carpet photo.

Now off to watch the award show, and see the cast of Hamilton kill it live from NYC! (Side note: if you can get tickets in Manhattan, seriously, go see Hamilton. You won’t be sorry, and this performance will surely prove it.)

Winter Fashion Looks

It’s getting colder, so it’s time to break out the sweaters, tights and boots and stay fashion-savvy while staying warm. So, it’s time for my winter fashions post! (Images found by searching Pinterest, of course.)

So, lately, I’ve gotten more into wearing tights, boots, a sweater and a skirt in winter. My new thing with fashion now. I have Lilly ones, J.Crew ones and ones with French phrases. Ce sont mignons. 

What to know:

1. Sweaters are a must (think whites, blacks and other neutral colors)

2. Have a designated winter coat to wear when it gets cold! (It can still be cute as long as it’s functional!)

3. Tights are an easy way to convert your spring/summer wardrobe to fit the winter weather. Skirts and dresses look adorable with tights (try patterned ones!), your coat and boots! It’s my staple!

And for a more formal look…

What do you think? How would you bundle up in the winter months without sacrificing your style?

My new favorite Lilly looks!

With the recent reveal of the 2014 Fall line of Lilly Pulitzer, I thought I’d reveal my top Lilly looks:
