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!

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.

You can wear your lighter weight clothing, just pair with black tights, booties, and layer on your puffer or wool coat and hat.  Pastels are huge this season.

Black and white balanced by the blue skinny jeans.  I love the over sized knit hat and wedge sneakers!

Edgy Style

When dressing yourself, I come from a place of “if you can wear clothes with an edge, then you should”.  Never hesitate when it comes to trying something on that you think may not work.  I’ve worked with clients who say they know it won’t look good on them and 9 time out of 10, their wrong.  Just try it!  Here are my inspirations when it comes to great style with an edge.  You can have a pretty basic outfit, but why not wear a boot instead of those go to flats, wear a trendy purse, bright lip color, or add a cape….just do something different!  By wearing clothing differently, you’re being stylish.  >wink<

The perfect YELLOW dress

Yellow isn’t for everyone, but if you’re willing to try one…BCBG has the best one around!  Not only did I love the color of my Cain dress, but check out the amazing cut (2 high slits, cut out back, perfect neckline) and the applique was so well done.  The nude color lining is what you see behind all the lace and sequin applique.  If you want to be on trend, go for lace.  It is so hot and the BCBG dress lines are using lace in fresh ways.

ssshhhh… my comes in black and a shorter version as well!
