Snow Days Calls for Chambray

Shirt: JCrew (option and another )
Shoe options: 1, 2, 3
Jacket Jcrew old (1, 2, 3 4 several color options! )
Jacket below Khols (Sold out check local store clearance racks) 1 2
My chambray shirt is always a life saver. It goes with just about everything and makes formal jackets look casual. Forever 21 had a huge selection of shirts. You just cannot go wrong with this staple piece.
The best part of living at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains are the amazing views. I grew up next to a beach and loved it. I lived in large cities and enjoy them. But there is something sweet about living in the country below the mountains. The people are great and there is so much open space. Just an hour or so up the road we can hike next to waterfalls and stand on the top of the cliffs and see valleys of rolling country.
Of course, snow is not something I am fond of. It was always better when you didn't have to work and drive in it..just build snowmen and play snowball fights all day! Oh I hope kids take full advantage of their snow days.

Over the Weekend

Blazer JCrew another option - Jeans Old Navy - Wedges JCrew another option - Peplum Tank Target
Clutch Borrowed By Ashard Richley another color

This weekend I was able to sport this amazing clutch that a friend let me use. It opens on both sides! I am in love and hope to find it somewhere in the same color..maybe a little less than retail. The necklace was my wedding necklace. I know its more of an emerald but in certain lighting it has blue in it. I fell in love and was so excited when I found it at our local JCrew Clearance store. That's right Clearance store! If you are ever in Lynchburg VA or Ashville NC - make it your first stop!

Jcrew Necklace almost the same

Dreaming of Sunshine

Coral Springs, FL
Since winter seems like it wants to stick around a little longer, the only thing I can do is dream of warm sunshine. These pictures were taken my in-laws neighborhood. Besides the intense humidity, it is a beautiful area.  
If you like shopping, Saw Grass Mills is a great outlet mall - huge outlet mall-!! My husband does not enjoy the length of time that is spent at that mall but the avocado rolls at the Cheescake Factory make him feel better.

Target Jackets

Lately I have had a slight obsession with the styles at Target! I recently when in a found these new jackets. This jacket has silver threads and black cloth panels which makes your waist look itty bitty. What girl doesn't want that! The pointed hem makes it edgy and modern.

The second jacket was very "Duchess." Anyone who knows me KNOWS she is a style icon for me. I will add this to the copycat section of my closet ...along with my blue trench, sheath dresses and nude pumps. **no shame**

For under $35 (plus they are having 20% off select clothing) these are a steal. They go with everything! (Outfit Pics coming soon)

2 Ways: Emerald Shoes

Shoes,Blazer,Bag,Bracelets: JCrew
Top:Khols; Jeans:Old Navy (links below)
Cream Sweater:Jcrew (below)
Some items no longer available
Emerald has been labeled the color of the year - which means we will be able to find it everywhere! These shoes may not be my go to 8-hour work day shoes, but when I want a statement they are the perfect choice. Paired with simple black for meetings or a cream sweater for a cold night out; the key is to focus on just the shoes...and a little sparkle from jewels!

A New Adventure

Pieces from:JCrew, Bauble Bar and vintage (no longer available)
Hi! My name is Sarah Marinkovich-Durfee. I, like many, am in love with fashion, food and living life. Of course my wallet may not always agree with my love of fashion when it sees the price tags...neither does my husband! So finding the best peices on a budget is my obsession!
