blue prints. valley.

today we're talking about what's scary- navy & black together!!!!! the horror!!! but in reality these colors look amazing when paired correctly. lots of people will tell you not to wear them together but we feel like if you make a very purposeful decision to pair these two neutrals with one another you can't go wrong. just be sure to make sure the navy & black are the majority of your look so everyone can tell you made a conscious choice. if you pick a head to toe black look and then a pair of navy tights . . .  you might get a few screams of terror but if you pick a black dress, navy blazer, navy tights, and black paten heels . . . add a dash of gold jewels. total glam.

happy halloween!

the sweater jacket is an item every woman should have in their fall rotation! it's great because it keeps you nice & cozy warm when you're outside and easily makes a transition to an indoor piece without looking to big & bulky. the sweater jacket is the perfect foundation to any woman's fall wardrobe!

with this warm & then all of a sudden cool temps every girl needs a great easy dress in her closet. this is valley's. it's a perfect heavy jersey material which is ideal for roller coaster weather. add a ton of neutral accessories, walk out your front door, and you'll be turning heads all day! happy tuesday.
