Slip Dress Layering

I’m sure you’ve seen it everywhere at this point, but I am LOVING the slip dress layering trend. I’ve never been a person who has felt all that comfortable in a tank (I just can’t get past the side-boob) sooo layering up is really the perfect option for me. If you’re a layering gal, you’re going to like this post 😉 Here are my top 5 reasons why you should try slip dress layering: The combinations are virtually endless. Pair your dress with solids, prints, short sleeve, long sleeve, you name it! Same dress, different layering combo! This trend transitions well from season to season. The layering doesn’t have to stop at what’s under your dress. Throw on a killer leather moto jacket for fall, or a denim jacket for spring. Bada bing bada boom. It pushes your style creativity. You’re bound to find a combo with what you already have in your closet. Have some fun with this trend. No rules allowed 😉 Have a killer dress that’s too low to wear by itself? Layer …

Spring Season Vibes

It’s time to whip out those white jeans again ladies! Bring oooon the sun! I love spring because it’s the time of rebirth. It’s so fun to see greenery that once seemed lifeless come back into full bloom again. We moved into our house back in July and it was a HOT month. The builder had planted two small trees and until last week I honestly thought they were goners. With a hot summer and a short fall, we hadn’t seen any life from the poor little guys– But then it happened! Beautiful white blossoms. Woohoo for spring! About this look– Yes, I’ve brought out my white jeans and I’m ready to keep them out for a while 😉 But let’s talk about this top from Ruthie Grace Boutique for a second— The rose patches placed on the sleeves are obviously my favorite part, but I also love the fit. It’s a loose fit, which is what I like to sport during the warmer seasons. The acid wash/distressed look of the fabric is also fun. …

Clarins Body Fit

Helloooo San Fransisco! Jono and I are just enjoying a little weekend getaway. And the view from our hotel is BOMB. But, let’s talk fitness for a second. It has been one of my goals this year to become more firm. I’m tired of being squishy. I’m not trying to lose inches or anything, I just want to feel… Harder. More toned. It’s not too much to ask for (or so I thought) so I figure it’s a good goal. I’ve discovered that I’m pretty weak #embarrassing. Meh, oh well. I’m working on it! Anyway… While on my new mission to get fit, I discovered this really great product called Body Fit by Clarins and it’s kind of genius. A product that helps reduce cellulite? Like, whaaaaa? I didn’t even know that was a thing! All of the product reviews that I read were amazing, sooo I decided to try it. I’ll admit, even after reading all of the raving reviews I was still a little skeptical, but I’m starting to see a difference! My …

The Perfect Spring Shoe

Real talk– the Free People Royale is one of spring’s “it” shoes and one of my personal favorites. The design is so perfect for warm weather, which we’re all hoping is headed our way soon. These beauties have been sold out basically everywhere, but I’ve found them for you! Seaside Soles has them available in this rich cognac color, and they also have them available in black. There are a lot of copycat versions out there, but I’ll be the first to tell you that they aren’t the same as the real thing. Personally, I would much rather splurge on a nice pair of shoes than pay for something that I know will fall apart after one season. Nothing peeves me more than unreliable, uncomfortable, give you blisters kind of shoes– They’re the worst! I will forever love this fabulous pair of shoes! The leather is so rich and the sole molds to your foot as if it were made just for you! Seaside Soles also has other great styles– Totally check them out. You can find …

Mix N’ Match Style

Sometimes I just like to incorporate more than one trend into my look. Yes, I may get over zealous at times, (lots of wardrobe changes until I find the right combo) but mixing and matching is fun! I’ve listed three of my favorite trends to combine right now– Let me know what you think! The Ascot. Bandanas & silky ascot scarves are coming back for spring. It’s time to ditch your thick knit scarf and get something lighter for the sunnier days that lie ahead. Embroidery (duh). You’re probably sick of me talking about my embroidery obsession at this point… I just can’t help myself! It adds such beautiful detail! A new spin on an old classic. Remember enamel pins from your younger years? Well, they’re coming back and they’re as cool as ever. You also need to check out these killer knotted sandals from Maude. I’d size up though. Mine are a tad snug! I want to see your mix n’ match style! Don’t be afraid to branch out and sport different colors and patterns. …

How To Dress Up Your Hoodie

Athleisure, in all its forms, has entrenched itself into current fashion trends and it isn’t going anywhere soon. It has become a part of everyday women’s fashion, so embrace it! Work it girrrl. So yes, we love our hoodies and our leggings. We dote over sneakers and baseball hats have become our new BFF. Sooo what about dressing these pieces up? Can it be done? Of course it can! With an anything goes attitude, you’ll be dressing up your leisure clothes in no time. How? Well, here are the 4 steps to a killer look: 1. Add a sophisticated statement piece. For this look, I decided to go with a leopard clutch, but I could have easily paired the hoodie with a rad leather jacket for the same effect. 2. Dress your feet. Your shoes say it all! Pair your sweatshirt with some killer mules or even a pair of heels to add an extra touch of poise. 3. What’s on the bottom? I decided to go with some distressed skinnies and a western belt, but …
