The fabulous Cassandra LaValle from coco + kelley is sharing her style secrets with us today!!! Most of you probably know Cassandra, she is the designer behind her lifestyle company coco+kelly and editor of the style blog. There is a freshness and sophistication to her style that captivated me since the first time I read her blog. In her designing process she encourages clients to discover their personal style and her philosophy is Life is in the details. Style accordingly.!! {loove it!}

I could literally go on and on talking about why I love her style so much but you are probably ready to start reading her post!!! One last thing before I go, she is just the most gracious, warm and super nice girl!!

Thank you Cassandra so much for your contribution to the series!!!

Somewhere between the style that we aspire to and the style of our daily lives is the style that defines us. And while our favorite looks are ever-evolving, there are certain pieces that will always be the foundation. For me, those pieces include simplicity, classical style, livable glamour, and lots of special detail...

As far as my wardrobe is concerned, I have a huge crush on the ease and sophistication of black and white. I wear diamond stud earrings every single day, unless I'm dressing up for an event or a night out. My everyday style is jeans and a t-shirt, which means my wardrobe has lots of basic staples. My going out style is black and sparkly, so I always feel glamorous. I love bright corals and royal blues, but everyone says reds and greens are the best on me. I don't overdo my accessories, and my favorite type of heels are open-toe pumps. I adore classic detailing and cuts from the 50's, and love, love, love dressing up.

When it comes to interior design, my style is (not so surprisingly) very similar. In fact, the rooms I create are often inspired by runway looks or the pieces I find in my client's wardrobe. I base my rooms in lots of warm neutrals and love the strength and freshness that can come from white walls. I keep the larger furniture pieces basic and classic, and the accents fun or glamorous. I love hunting through vintage or thrift stores for little treasures that are original or have lots of personality. Fresh flowers or plants are a requirement. And just as I never overdo an outfit, I never clutter up a room.

And, if all of that doesn't really define every piece of my style, I hope that the photos speak for themselves! They are at once comfortable and chic, simple and layered, and always with a touch of shimmer or beautiful detail.
