Fall’s Best Denim.

Tags

Hello! Denim is Fall’s best friend, wearing jeans at least 4 times a week is perfectly acceptable, you can dress it down or up, and any type of shoe will go with it. Here a few styles that you should try in the upcoming months:

The Skinny Waxed Jean: Chic. Dressy. Sleek. This jeans flatter everyone are perfect for day or night. Pair them with pointy flats for day and at night switch it up to pumps or ankle booties (get these in a black or grey wash).

The High Waist Skinny: Elegant. Flattering. Comfy. These are perfect to wear with a blazer and tee, pair these with riding boots, or flats. These are the type of pants that can you wear with all your flowy tops that way your look is balanced.

The Printed Skinny: Fun. Expressive. Trendy. You probably wore all the pastel versions for Spring. Well the Fall versions are just as cute..try a pretty deep wine colored print or leopard. I would stick to wearing black or nude colored shoes with these pants so you don’t overwhelm the look.

The Dark Wash Skinny: Fall Staple. Sexy. Classic. This look will give you legs for days and never will go out of style. This looks good with anything and everything literally. Wear it with a tee, slouchy sweater, a shimmery top, and any type of shoe you want.

The Boyfriend Jean: Relaxed. Comfy. Stylish. I love these because you can do so much with them. Wear a graphic tee and flats to run errands, or a sweater with pumps for date night, or a tee and scarf with ankle booties for a night out with friends or family.

Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Hello! Shopping can expensive, changing out your closet can take a toll on your wallet, and honestly just stress people out! Shopping should not make you feel that way nor should you have to empty your accounts just to keep your closet updated every season! This is why it is important to splurge on the classics, and spend less on “trend” pieces. The best fashion advice ever given to me and that I now share with others is when a new season comes you really only need to get at least 4 key items and mix and match with the clothes already in your closet! Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

These are the fall essential key items that will work with what you already have will  refresh your looks:

-Pointy Leopard Ballet Flats: These are the perfect shoes to where with almost anything, adorable with skinny pants/denim, a pencil or skater skirt, and above the knee dresses. These are a polished and classic look that would even be appropriate for the work place.

-High Waist Skinny Denim: Classic, structured, and a clean look. You can wear this with pointy heeled pumps, flats, ankle booties or boots. Try tucking in a chiffon blouse, a blazer, paired with ballet flats!

-Fringe Bag: Black or brown. SO CUTE. It has a “boho” vibe to it, looks cute with any outfit, perfect for day or night, and can be worn during the week not just on weekends!

-Grey Ankle Boots: Comfortable, chic, and can be worn day or night. I love this look with tights, a skirt, and a silk button down tucked in! You can also try this look with a chunky sweater, leggings, worn with a crossbody bag!

-A Kimono: You can get this in any color or a printed version. These are so comfortable and literally can be worn with anything! You can pair it with dresses, skirts, denim, and shorts (depending on cold it gets where you live).

-A Blush Colored Structured Handbag- You can wear this well through the Spring! So this definitely is worth it. It is a sophisticated hue, can easily be worn day to night, and looks good on any age!

Summer to Fall Looks!

Hello! As summer is coming to a close and fall is fast approaching our wardrobe choices begin to transition. It can be a bit daunting to decide what is appropriate to wear and won’t look out of place! The trick is to wear items that could go with sandals or ankle boots, you want the items to balance each other out.

The best transition colors to wear this month are colors that blend seamlessly into fall such as red, orange, navy, and white. The best way to transition your summer dresses into fall is paring them with ankle booties, a denim jacket or a light shrug. Stripes are my favorite transitional look they still have that summery nautical look yet give you that nice subdued preppy fall look. You can wear your stripes with white pants and sandals or ballet flats. If you have a stripped blouse try tucking it into a skirt and wearing it with some ankle boots!

Your summer prints don’t have to be put away just yet..try wearing a bold print with a long boyfriend cardigan on top (a neutral colored one will look best). If it still hot where you live wear it with pointy ballet flats or if it is already getting chilly a pair of flat boots or ankle boots would be appropriate to wear.

You can still wear your bright colored summer pants with neutral tops and shoes. If you have nude colored wedges these would be adorable to wear and balance out the outfit perfectly! You can start wearing your scarves again as well, but make sure only your light ones and that have a bit of a brown or deep red hue in them. You can still wear your bright summer bags as well just make sure you pair with an all black or brown ensemble to give your outfit a pop of color. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Summer to Fall Looks.

 

Summer Brights.

Hello! I love changing my nail polish color every few days, certain nail polish colors go with certain seasons. For example a dark purple would look good in the fall and winter. Another good example is a bright pink would be pretty in the spring and summer. A few of my favorites for summer are flame orange, a lush teal, a bright sangria hue, cotton candy pink, navy blue, mint, a bright red, and last but no least radiant orchid (color of the year). Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Beautiful Summer Skin.

Summer is beautiful season, the sun is shining, vacations are happening, and outdoor activities become a necessity…Because of this your skin pays the price if you don’t take the steps to take care of it. Sunscreen should become your best friend during these warm next few months. Sunscreen protects your skin from the harsh rays, locks in moisture, and keeps your skin fresh and dewy looking. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Here are my 4 favorite sunscreens:

1. Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 $32 at Sephora. This is great for super dry skin, all  natural, and chemical free. It claims to have “sun boost ATB is a unique blend of antioxidants, skin-soothers, and hydrators that work in tandem with natural sunscreens to boost sun protection while conditioning and nourishing the skin.” I am currently using this one and I love it.

2. Skin Ceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 $40 at http://www.skinceuticals.com. This broad spectrum protective cream with transparent zinc oxide (Z-Cote®*) helps protect against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays. It is a bit heavy so you only need to use a dime sized amount on your face. I have been using this on and off since middle school and I love it. It has saved my skin more times than I count!

3. Clarins UV Plus HP Broad Spectrum SPF 40 $41 at Sephora. A day cream that protects the skin from the sun, and environmental pollution. It claims to shield the skin from sun damage, fights wrinkles, and DNA damage. I have had a sample of it before that I used for a few days and I saw a difference in my skin after two days.

4. Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50 $28 at Sephora. This fast-absorbing, ultra-lightweight fluid provides daily protection against broad-spectrum UVA/UVB damage. Alguronic Acid combines with antioxidant-rich botanicals and UVA/UVB protecting actives to delay signs of aging caused by sun and environmental stressors. I have read rave reviews about this online I am thinking about getting a sample of this soon to see if this might be my next skin care purchase!

Make a Statement.

Hello! I have always believed that accessories can make or break an outfit. Too much jewelry can overwhelm an outfit and too little can make an outfit feel bland. The key to accessorizing is everything you’re wearing should create a balance. For example if you wear a big necklace make sure your bracelet is dainty or just the necklace with a cocktail ring. Another idea is if you’re wearing tons of bracelets aka “arm candy” then make sure you wear a smaller necklace. I know most people think you cannot wear a statement piece with prints however you can if worn the right way. Never be too “matchy matchy” with it, the color should contrast with the print that way the look does not become cluttered. Remember your statement piece should always speak for itself, too many accessories can confuse the look. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

You Make Me Blush.

I love the spring time the weather is beautiful, you can wear your denim jacket at least 4 times a week and not feel guilty. But most of all it is perfectly acceptable to wear pastels everyday! One of my favorite colors for this time of the year is…BLUSH. It is so pretty, goes with any skin tone, and is perfect for day or night. I know when most people think pastels are strictly girly but they can look womanly as well. For example wearing a blush colored tank paired with dark denim skinnies, and wedges create a hint of girly but paired with a edgy accessories can make the perfect look. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Blush Away

Spring Prints.

Hello and happy Monday! I don’t just love the spring season because of the beautiful weather I also love it because it’s the one season where you can get away with wearing prints and pastels every day of the week. There are so many different ways that you can wear them as well. Try a sold t-shirt tucked into a printed pencil skirt, or a floral blazer paired with a blouse and black skinnies, or printed pants with some blush colored pumps! Try it out, if you are nervous trying prints I would suggest trying printed wedges to get your feet wet first then go from there! Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Spring Fling

Eye Makeup: The Best Mascara.

Hello! Applying mascara properly is important, you don’t want clumps, raccoon eye, and of course smearing everywhere! When you are taking the wand out “swish” it a bit in the bottle to smooth out the applicator. By doing this you aren’t risking getting clumpy mascara. Wash your wand at least twice a week with a brush cleaner. I have tried most brands and spent lots of money on some and not so much on others. I have favorites in all kinds of price ranges. Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

*Makeup Tip: It is important to clean your eyelash curler EVERYDAY. Take a tissue and some soap and just clean it off. You risk accidentally ripping your eyelashes off when there is residue on your curler.

Five Favorite Spring 2014 Must Haves.

Happy Sunday Funday! I hope everyone is ready for a new week and has a happy but fulfilling one! Anyways, spring is just around the corner and I am so excited! I love playing with makeup and hair colors and I am excited to say goodbye to dark colors and say hello to pastels! Thanks for reading. Xoxo. Here are my five favorite spring must have items:

Purple Lips- This color is eye catching, looks beautiful day or night, and goes with any skin tone.

Illuminizer- This is the highlighters “cousin.” What differentiates this from a highlighter is that this can be mixed in with your tinted moisturizer/foundation, worn as a bronzer or used as a highlighter by contouring it on your face.

Floral- No this is not just meant to be on your grandmothers curtain. This is a elegant look cute on dresses and tops. Remember If you’re on the petite side get a smaller floral print and if you’re taller wear a bigger floral print.

Pastel Skinny Pants- Beautiful, elegant, and works at the office and at night. I love this look, it looks good with pointy toe flats for work or pointy flats and for night so cute with wedges.

Color Block Bag-No “matchy matchy” rules apply here. Go with your bad stylish self! It’s fun and can really look cute with any outfit!
