Spring Layers

Spring has arrived and I love the lighter layers paired with open toed shoes and light colors.  It’s all so refreshing, careless and cool.  Stripes never looked so good with this seasons hottest shoe, a sporty sneaker.  Matchy matchy is out- add a shoe with color for that added interest.  Dig out those shorts as they go with everything from dressy to tomboy casual.  The key is the balance of the outfit.  If you have baggy shorts then wear a tighter tank with a loose white blouse button up and eye catching sandals.  We all know spring temps are unpredictable so go with lighter layers that you can wrap around your waist or shoulders.  Don’t forget to lighten your make up and hair can be more casual and fun!

Now this is a garden display like none other!

White for Spring events

I do love attending charity events and recently attended the annual Wentworth by the Sea Crossroads gala.  I don’t like keeping my look the same and enjoy experimenting with new hair and make up styles.  My beaded dress felt appropriate for a Spring event by the water.  It was on the shorter side, white and the beads are stitched in a slight chevron style.  The shoes stood out and I wanted them to have that bootie feel.  When I think of spring make up on my olive complexion I think of bright pink.  My toes and fingers along with my lips were covered in a deep pink color.  I layered on two long necklaces to give a flapper feel.  My hair dresser felt that I needed some pretty bling in my hair, so we stuck with a silvery sparkly flower.

Neutral Monochromatic Style

Monochromatic is defined as having or consisting of one hue or color.  Most people could handle as neutral monochromatic hue as they tend to be bright, yet soft and feminine, yet masculine.  I personally wouldn’t want to look at an entire primary colored room all day or everyday.  It would be too much for me to live in and feel very dark in the later hours.  The images below have several threads in common, they are clutter free, giving a pretty simple feel to the room, but all contain great texture within the same hue.  It takes focus and discipline to maintain a monochromatic room.
DIY chaise sofa.  This would work well for my spa room.  Twin size mattresses with simple frames and furniture legs.  Just add extra large pillows and lots of them. I love this whole style for upstairs loft idea!

Wardrobe Essentials this Fall into Winter

Every closet should be stocked with clothing staples and a few trendy items to ensure getting ready “made easy”, yet right.  You don’t have to be a hot mess and throw on those yoga pants, jeans, or slacks with whatever top you have.  If you have the right wardrobe essentials your outfits will look polished, sharp, smart and envy worthy.  If you follow these clothing tips with your wardrobe then getting dressed will be fun and easy.

Fall into Winter clothing & accessories to have in your wardrobe:

Staples: Long sleeve shirts in black, white or gray & 1 pop of color, Black leggings, Skinny Jeans, Skinny gold or silver belt, Black printed or solid scarf, Tall leather boots, Trench coat, Wool coat, White button down, LBD, Black skirt, Tights & Undergarments (thongs & push ups), Sweater vest, Black blazer, Basic sweaters in cream, black or gray, Denim shirt and make sure you have different socks (thick, wool, thin, high, ankle).

Trends: Leather Biker Jacket, Shoe booties, Black & white striped clothing, Floral on black, Plaid anything, Metallic finishes, Leopard or Animal prints, Pastel jackets & sweaters, Studs & Spikes, Leather or Pleather pants, Leather details on shirts, Pencil skirts, Faux or Fur coats, Chain link jewelry, Cutout clothing, Army clothing, Lace pieces, Heel booties, Over the knee boots, Velvet clothing.

Clothing Tip:  Keep your basics up to date-no fading, ironed & clean to wear all week and make sure you have plenty of clean undergarments and socks/tights on hand.  Keep your handbags and footwear wiped down and clean.  Jewelry should be organized and accessible to pile on.

How to wear your Basics and add your Trends:  Dress yourself mostly with your basics and add a trendy item or two.  Layering is the key to stylish dressing.  Decide if you’re in the mood to wear pencil skirt, black leggings or skinny jeans then decide what to wear on the top.  For example, if you go with a pencil skirt to be dressy, then go for a trendy blouse and decide if you’re going to layer your sweater vest, biker jacket, trench coat or black blazer on top.  Now figure out your shoes…try on your options in front of a long mirror.  Try the shoe booties, tall leather boots and heals to figure out which ones make the best looking outfit for the day.  Lastly, spice up your look with accessories and trends…scarfs, jewelry, belts and handbags.

Remember getting dressed is all about layering.  If your outfit isn’t right, then go back to your basic items and swap something out, for example if you’re wearing that pencil skirt and you like what it looks like, but is too dressy for the event your attending, then replace it for the back leggings or if really casual then put on your jeans.  Or if you just have to wear the pencil skirt but need a more casual look, wear a long sleeve basic shirt then either add a sweater or skip the sweater and layer your sweater vest, biker jacket or trench coat with your scarf.  If you have the right staples then making outfits is so easy.

My final advice on polishing your outfit for the day is to make sure your hair style and make up reflect and enhance your look.  You don’t have to have the perfect face, but if you’re going for a natural look make sure you have the right make up to correctly achieve this look.  With make up it all starts with the basics as well and layer to add different colors and make up trends to your look.  Really it’s the same concept!

If you’re closet is organized by color then getting dressed can be a breeze!

Funky in a nutshell

When it comes to your own home decor do you add flair here and there or play it entirely safe?  What I enjoy about these spaces is how much fun and unique the decor is.  I don’t feel you have to decorate an entire house funky but various layers of texture, pattern and color in one area of a house can be just as interesting.
