Two Hot New Fashion Trends for Summer

It finally felt like summer this weekend with temps rising above the 80’s. I was so happy to bring out my summer gear as the weather has been so fickle this spring. I don’t remember a spring where I was this confused about what to wear on the daily. As a matter of fact, when I am in limbo, I tend to dig deep into my closet and mix and match what I already own. Of course if I am looking for a little wardrobe makeover, I go for a trend that won’t break the bank. This spring, I purchased a pair of paper-bag waist khaki pants and this tube top, two hot new fashion trends for summer that add so much more to any simple... Read More

How to Style A Shirtdress

Sometimes, it’s all in the details. While there are a multitude of dress trends I am coveting for spring, I am falling for a simple style that’s far from new: the belted shirtdress. With a built-in method for creating the illusion of a cinched waist and a timeless, vintage-inspired silhouette, the combination has proven itself to be a universally flattering on all body types. One of my go-to looks for spring, a shirtdress is stylistically appealing on all body types. At times, I struggle with wearing them because sometimes they aren’t a dress nor a shirt, but something in between. But belted shirtdresses have come a long way from the poplin standard of their past. Now, there are bold color options, plunging necklines, mini skirt and... Read More

Spoil Your Mother This Mother’s Day

If haven’t gotten a calendar alert, Mother’s Day is coming. Yes, Sunday, May 13, is all about the ladies who give us life, advice and the side-eye when needed. Mothers give and give, and sometimes don’t get the break when they have the most important job on the planet. A Mother myself, I can speak first hand about this. Raising kids is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding jobs in the world. Motherhood has never felt like a job but has brought me the most joy and pride of accomplishment. We should honor our mothers on the daily. That’s why it’s super important to spoil her with the most amazing gift possible for her special day. Dedicate this day to how she’s such an amazing... Read More

Camouflage Trend 2018

Take note of the camouflage trend 2018. Camouflage print is a part of a military trend which has survived in fashion from season to season. This spring in particular, I am seeing camo pieces everywhere on the streets. The army staple print gets a fashionable boost when paired with everything from sweaters and boots, to showing up in unexpected ways. Camouflage, similar to leopard print, in that it never goes out of style. I have had the same camouflage pants for several years, and wear them on and off. For real though, 2018 is all about making bold fashion statements. And that’s one thing I have noticed about how to wear camouflage. Fashion insiders are reaching for eye-grabbing pieces, such as loose-fit trousers or jackets finished with... Read More

How to style a shawl for spring

Like clockwork each year, spring arrives, and I get furious with my coats. I start to pack up my sweaters to then unpack them again. Just yesterday, I paired a yellow gingham dress with a black leather jacket and boots and pretended it was warm outside. But it snowed instead. The struggle continues as I pull out my pretty dresses. The issue is, dresses feel too sweet to wear right now. The in-between season is complicated. Winter is thawing out as spring slowly arrives. I want my clothes to dress accordingly. A style tip that I took from my work, is to wrap a shawl around whatever you are wearing and it immediately keeps you warm. Shawls are an easy one stop fix for these in between... Read More

Inspiration Lies In Your Closet For Spring

Hello, sunshines. Are you getting excited for spring? It is officially here, in contrast to all the snow we are having. Because yesterday’s fourth Nor’easter plowed down on us on the east coast, we are stuck in a winter rut. It is the fourth storm this winter with possibly more next week, leaving us wondering what to wear? I know what you’re probably thinking. Not again. The vagaries of spring weather are always a mixed bag of snow, wind, sun, and rain and one hundred percent unpredictable. At this point, it is best to desensitize yourself from the current temperatures. But even during the prettiest spring seasons, dressing right can be tricky: some days the sunshine makes us ready to retire the winter coat and live in floral... Read More
