Remember a decade ago when it seemed you had to wear your jeans super low? We saw more thongs than we wanted to. Thank GOD that trend has passed. Well one trend I am absolutely loving is the high waisted jean. Why? Because it holds everything in and makes you look slimmer!
Victoria Beckham is the definition of chic, so when it comes to getting color right she is my go-to girl. She knows when styling a bold, or complimentary-colored ensemble it is important to really make everything else about the outfit very simple: minimal jewelry and a solid bag.
Unless you have been living under a rock slides are the shoe of the season and I couldn’t be happier since they are so comfortable. Here are some slide shoes for under 100 dollars!
I can totally remember wearing Chanel style tweed jackets with denim jeans back in the 90s. We would wear the jacket from a skirt suit, or even find 60s vintage suit jackets from a resale shop and pair it with jeans
I am often asked what hair products I recommend that can be found at the drugstore. I had no idea since I mainly use(d) high-end products so this research was for us all. Well, guess what? There are a lot of great finds to be had!
Forget about your large totes! This spring/summer is all about the designer mini bag – again. Yes, you are not losing it. This trend as been around for a couple of seasons, but now it has taken on life. OK, scratch that. Don’t forget about your large bags, because if you are like me, half of the stuff jammed in your bag is for the kids anyway. However, if you get a moment to yourself (or an evening) the mini bag is the best option.
Lucite heels are taking the stage and not in the way that we’re used to seeing (need I say more?) These days Lucite is hitting runways hard and has been updated to be classy and fashion forward.
Some trends take me a while to warm up to (off the shoulder tops) and some I like right away, like this one. Yes, the one-shoulder look is nothing new – if you remember the 70’s and 80’s.
A statement coat is the way to go when a last minute dinner plan pops up and the perfect outfit is nowhere in sight. Actress Reese Witherspoon pulls together a foolproof look that is both easy and chic to wear. What I really love about this ensemble is that she opted for navy instead of the usual black dress and heels. Reese Witherspoon gets wild with navy! Many people are afraid to pair navy and black, however, together they make a very sophisticated color pallet (hey, Coco Chanel did it). Also with the warmer weather soon to come, navy is a great alternative neutral color to expected black.
I know I have been really mean about Crocs in the past but as I have admitted before, sometimes it takes me a while (in this case a decade or so) to warm up to a trend and embrace it. I have come around. So I am taking a new stance on Crocs! Let’s face it, Crocs come in a…
This little outfit was inspired when a Uniqlo ad popped up in my email. It featured a hot orange red flare knit A-line skirt for only $15! It immediately reminded me of the Victoria Beckham ensembles In the same bright trendy hue in her Spring 2017 RTW Collection. So I clicked over to Net-A-Porter to find the beautiful Victoria Beckham skirt, for over $1000! You can pair either skirt with the matching red knit tops offered respectively from Victoria Beckham and Uniqlo, but I thought it would be more fun to put together an outfit of this seasons trends. It’s a trend loaded spring outfit!
The modern way of life to which most of us are forced to adapt these days is not exactly the picture perfect situation for your overall health. In fact, many of our daily habits involve grabbing a bite to eat at a fast food joint and washing it down with a sugared drink. Not only is it arguably very tasty, but it’s also convenient, cheap and you don’t have to “waste” valuable time on actually cooking your food.
Last month I did a post on the best organic lip balms which is all fine and good, but do you give the color you put on your lips much thought? You should. Considering women ingest anywhere between roughly 4-7 pounds of the gunk they put on their lips in their lifetime, it’s thought provoking.
This is one trend it took me exactly three seconds to warm up to! I normally eschew 70’s trends but I find myself longing for suede clogs or wood heel shoes. When I was a little girl my mother would take my brother and I over to Canada every Spring to get our Bastad clogs for the summer.
Here’s how to update your look for spring without diminishing your core fashion personality…
