Put a Little Spring in Your Step

Spring is the time to bring out the warm weather staples: shorts, sandals, and bright colors. One of my favorite colors for Spring is coral. It is a color that looks feminine and beautiful on every skin tone. Pairing a coral top with cute shorts is a perfect day look; switch them out for a pair of white pants and heels for a great evening outfit.

What do you think? Do you like the color coral for your spring staples?

Take Over Control

I am an avid fan of jewelry; I have tons and love incorporating it into my outfits. But a style that has caught my eye a lot lately is "jewelry-inspired" pieces. Embellishments on clothing have always been around, but recently I have noticed more and more how much the stones, chains, and studs on some tops and dresses resemble actual jewelry. Here, I wore my braided chain halter top. When wearing a top or dress with "heavy metal" around the neck, actual jewelry in that general area should be minimal (i.e. no necklace or earrings, or just small studs like I wore here). The same goes for other areas; for example, embellished sleeves should be worn without bracelets or watches.

What do you think about "jewelry-inspired" clothing?

Once in a Blue Moon

 Like other accessories, nail "art" can be a fun way to express yourself. The best part about it is that there is not much commitment; if you're not happy with the income, it takes minutes to remove or change. For that reason, I like experimenting with wild colors and fun additions. Here, I used a bright blue polish for the main color, added a swipe of silver on both index fingers, and a star-shaped rhinestone on each ring finger. I thought the outcome was really fun and unique!

What do you think of this nail design?

Haute and Heavy

As I often say, fashion and style are a great way to express yourself. You can style your look depending on your mood, on the occasion, on the weather. Syle is ever-changing; trends come and go - certain bits stay with us while others get left behind. My style varies on a daily basis: one day I may wear a pink floral dress and the next I am decked out in black and studs. To me, that is what makes fashion so fun...you can be anyone you want to be, and change it just as effortlessly.

What are your thoughts? Do you change your look all the time? Or do you tend to lean toward one style more than others?

Take Me to Wonderland

Over the last few weeks, I have really been discovering the color brown. I have always loved the way others wear it, but black has always been my personal basis...so brown didn't seem to fit in the picture for me. But lately, it has been the perfect base for my outfits. As a neutral,  it goes well with a lot of colors and pieces. As the focal point, it is easy to put together a great "brown-based" ensemble. I'm not so sure what was holding me back before. While black will forever have my heart, I am happy to make some room for the newly beloved brown.

What are your thoughts, black or brown - or both? ;)
