Hey friends! I am finally going through a rebrand & I can't wait to continue sharing my journey as a blogger with you. What's great is that all the posts I have shared during the past 8+ years as Stilettos & Diaper Bags will still be here on my new blog, Balancing Lisa. The only thing that is changing is the name, URL, design, and of course some newer content. In the meantime, make sure you follow me over on IG, Twitter, Pinterest, & Bloglovin @balancinglisa or Vero & Youtube at Lisa Fergus for updates. I am also still on FB & am working on updating the page to my new name. BRB! xoxo

Denim Jumpsuit Love

You guys know I love all things retro fashion, so this denim jumpsuit screamed to me "buy me Lisa, buy me!" So I did. ;) I figured the first time I style it, I just had to commit to the throwback and add my vintage cape. Nothing says (to me) that I am living my best fashion life then wearing this outfit on a Wednesday in January. I mean...why was I not an adult in the 60's & 70's? I would have rocked at it. I guess I'll just have to settle with being born in 1979. Close enough!

Easy Everyday Style

I love collaborating with J.Jill because the quality of their pieces is amazing and their items seamlessly mix and match season in and season out. I recently picked up this top and their new 5-pocket jean leggings. I have to admit, I thought the denim legging would be like all others...but I was very wrong. These are by far the best denim leggings I have ever owned! They fit me like a glove, feel like you're wearing yoga pants, and zip-up and button like regular jeans, but better fitting ones. OK, back to the rest of the outfit. The coat and scarf are also J.Jill, but from late last year. See, all their items go together without trying hard at all. This look was perfect for everyday as I ran errands and stopped at the school.

Remix: Long Knit Cardigan

Happy Friday friends! It's been a minute since I posted a remix so I decided now was a perfect time to revisit this segment. As a blogger there is pressure to always be wearing new items, but let's be honest, that's not very realistic. I love snagging up items that I will genially wear over and over so this is a great way to show you that I do just that! 

Since I started blogging over 8 years ago now, I have always posted "remix" posts to show you different ways to style your favorite items. (Check out my previous remix posts here.) Today, I wanted to highlight my favorite long knit cardigan. I wear this beauty as a coat in the fall and spring months, and as a layering piece in the winter. Here is a look back at four ways I have styled this beauty I picked up at Gap two years ago.

Velvet & Double Buckle & Cat Eye...Oh My!

Sometimes less is more, but sometimes more is more. In this outfit, it keep getting...well...more! I started out with a great closet staple, a black jumpsuit (last styled here), and from there it just keep getting more retro and fun. Next, I added the statement belt and then the velvet jacket was a must add. I'll tell you all about how I scored this amazing jacket below, but let's continue on the styling, shall we? OK, next up I added the biggest cat eye I've ever worn with such a bold color lip. In the end, you guessed it, more! A great gold necklace, gold dangle earrings, my two-toned boots, and the most fun acrylic bag.
