Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Margaux-at-The-Marlton-New-York5

Casey snapped these photos right before I ducked into The Marlton to have lunch at Margaux with the Lauren Ralph Lauren team. It was such a fun way to spend the afternoon. The food was really good (hello cauliflower custard!) and I caught up with some friends I hadn’t seen in a while.

The rest of the day was fairly quiet with a trip to the gym and then home to make dinner. Lately, I’ve found that mid-evening, around 8:30, has become my favorite time of day. It’s after we’ve finished eating, the dishes are washed, and it’s time to just relax with tea and a good movie or show. Last night we watched Rudy (total tearjerker) and then started The Green Mile, both of which we’ve seen before but I always love re-watching classics. Such a nice end to a great day. Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely Tuesday and here is to Wednesday and the week being half over! xo

The Mamuye Tote

( I also love this scarf and blanket.)

This beautiful tote was handmade by a woman named Mamuye, who works for fashionABLEThe site’s mission is to help create sustainable business in Africa, with the main focus on creating opportunities for vulnerable women. So for every purchase that is made, jobs are being created so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy. I also love how every product offered on the site is named after the woman who made it. Read about Mamuye’s story here. xo

P.S. I love the look of a really weathered and worn-in leather bag, don’t you?

Cargo Leather Biker Jacket: All Saints / Sculptural Ribbon Cuff: Alexis Bittar / Turtleneck: American Apparel

I’ve been a fan of Alexis Bittar’s jewelry since 2005, when I was first introduced to it while working as an intern in the accessories closet at InStyle. I remember the pieces that the editors would call in for shoots and thinking how chic and amazing the rings, bracelets and necklaces looked. I continued to admire his jewelry whenever I would pass by this store on Bleecker, thinking how fun it would be to wear one of his amazing statement bangles. Flash forward to 2012 when I was working with a client and we were pouring over her collection of Alexis Bittar pieces that she had cumulated over the years, I was still admiring the style and shape of his jewelry. And now, here we are today, where I get to style up my very own selected pieces from Alexis Bittar’s collection and share them with you on my blog. Pretty exciting in my book!

The pieces I chose are very wearable and versatile, and I know I will be wearing them for years to come.

Happy Tuesday! Last week I attended a Juicy Couture event thrown by SheKnows for the launch of Juicy’s new perfume, Viva La Juicy Couture Gold. It was held at Gold Bar downtown, which was the perfect venue since not only was the name fitting but the decor was extremely decadent and dripping with gold embellishments. There was champagne to be drank and perfume to be spritzed, plus a super fun photo booth that Casey and I beelined for where we draped ourselves in a pink boa and funny accessories. The night was quite a success and I’ve actually been wearing the perfume nonstop. It has notes of vanilla, golden amber, berries, honeysuckle and caramel. Super sweet, but somehow not overly so. Casey sure seems to like it, so that always helps. :) If you pass a Sephora or Nordstrom anytime soon, stop in and give this perfume a try and let me know what you think! xoxo

Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Lake-Washington-Madison-Park3

Last Friday, Casey and I ventured over to Captiol Hill where we had lunch at Barrio, then drove over to Madison Park so I could show him Lake Washington. We spent time walking along the water and snapped a few pictures before heading back over to South Lake Union to meet friends for dinner. It was such a beautiful day and Seattle felt pretty magical. Summer here is just my favorite.

I had to drop him off at the airport tonight (there may have been some tears) but I think the city stole his heart just as I was hoping it would. The trip was a great success and we had a blast. I will be in town for another week so stay tuned for more Seattle-centric photos! xo

Hat: Panama Hat (I found mine in a shop in Spain but this version by Anine Bing is pretty spot on) / Sunglasses: Karen Walker / Necklace: Forever 21 / Shirt: Zara / Skirt: Michael Kors (I found mine at a consignment shop, but I love this one by Current/Elliott) / Shoes: UGG (old) / Bag: YSL (on loan from Bella Bag)

Christine-Cameron-Lands-End-Seattle-My-Style-Pill9

Yesterday I took Casey to Kerry Park in Queen Anne. It’s one of my favorite places in the city and I love taking people there when they come to visit because not only is the view breathtaking, I love seeing their initial reaction as we drive up to the overlook. Gorgeous, isn’t it? But on top of wanting to visit Kerry Park for the view, I knew it was the perfect place to shoot this outfit for Lands’ End. I partnered with the brand to try a new pair of their jeans since they recently relaunched their denim line. They are now focusing on achieving a great fit for everyone, offering low, medium and high rises (I’m wearing this style) in soft material and in various washes. The new styles also now come with slightly slanted back pockets and a higher waist in the back that trims your shape immediately. I also really like their chambray shirts, especially the striped one I’m wearing. You can check out more denim styles here!

Christine-Cameron-My-Style-Pill-Forever-21-Styling-CAMO_2

Happy Sunday! So as many of you know, I’ve been working on a styling challenge with Forever 21 and was asked to create three looks to illustrate different parts of my day to day. I decided to share a few aspects of my work life – you can see the other two looks here and here – and for my third and final look, I chose to share what I would when I’m out and about attending evening press events and launch parties.

I like to dress up a bit more when attending these types of events and I loved this dress the minute I spotted it. But the thing is, I’ve never been very comfortable wearing a body con dress without some sort of jacket or blazer over the top, so in an attempt to feel more comfy, I paired it with a more casual camo shirt-jacket to take it down a notch. Plus it gave me a chance to have a little fun with pattern play!

Christine-Cameron-Forever-21-New-York-City-My-Style-Pill6

I’ve been a fan of Forever 21 for over ten years now and have watched it grow and change from a place where I only bought my “going out” clothes to now what is a multifaceted store that offers everything from lingerie to pencil skirts and more. I have learned to shop their various stores, no matter how big or small, and spot and pick out really cute things that otherwise might have been overlooked. So when Forever 21 asked me to create three looks that illustrate parts of my everyday life, I was of course up for the challenge. I headed to the gigantic four-level store in Times Square and got to work. I thought about what the main aspects of my work life are and decided to start with what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. I knew I wanted to feel polished and put together so I oped for a really great pencil skirt as my starting point and went from there.

I picked a black and gold statement necklace to add a bit of boldness to this basic button down and to draw out the darker details in the skirt.

Christine-Cameron-Forever-21-New-York-City-My-Style-Pill5

I kept the bag and shoes a neutral color to bring more attention to the bold, printed skirt.

This classic blue button down is very versatile and I love that I can dress it up for a meeting and then later on in the day, pair it with white jeans and sandals for a more casual look.

Forever 21: Necklace / Shirt / Skirt / Shoes / Bag (old but here is a similar style)

Style Tip: I realize that for those of you who work in a more traditional work environment, a brightly patterned skirt and open toed shoes may not be appropriate. If that is the case, or if this much print feels a little scary, I would suggest simply swapping out the skirt for a deep navy blue pencil skirt, and making your shoes the focal point. Try a pair of pointy-toed bold pumps in a zippy color like citron or coral as your statement piece.
