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!

Sneaker Ball

Attending fundraisers is always a pleasure.  I really enjoy supporting local causes and especially when they benefit children.  There is nothing more heartwarming than knowing you can do something to make a difference in a child’s life.

The Sneaker Ball was a benefit to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder and their “Ballers to Scholars” Program.  This ball took place at the beautiful Empire Restaurant & Lounge in Boston.

This time of the year we have plenty of snow and temperatures ranging in the 40’s and lower in the evening.  So deciding what to wear wasn’t hard, but keeping warm was!!  You know me, I’ll practically wear anything for fashion, so I wore my shorts!

When wearing sneakers I don’t normally think of dresses, but plenty of ladies rocked this look.  I like to be sporty when I can, so shorts and a tank worked perfectly with my wedge sneakers!

Summer style on speed

I’m so loving the crop tops, airy knit sweaters, cut off jeans, lace tops, gypsy feeling clothing, florals, prints, boyfriend jeans, tanks and how everything is carelessly put together~it’s summer style on steroids!  So gorg and beautiful, the mix of styles, colors and textures!  So much inspiration to be worn and oh, so many fun places!  Summer = a merge of all things carefree and great.

Evening Shorts

I’m surprised at how much I am loving shorts in the evening.  I find they can be so much fun and then if it gets cooler in the evening, add a shirt on top.  The best way for my body type is to keep the shorts on the short side and wear a tank top and layer over~my body type broader shoulders, smaller chested, a bum, long legs and more on the slender side but I’ve had two children, so I do have extra to hide in the lower belly.

You can also pair with a jacket as I did in the second photo.  The matching print top is a bit too much for my liking, but if it’s that fabulous, then go with it.  Mix up your outfit with prints, textures, jewelry and color.  Also make sure your legs are perfectly shaved, lotion applied and I even put a little oil on mine to add sheen.
