Loving Yellow These Days!

This year has been all about the color, color, COLOR!! Yellow, whether in a top, accessories, or pants, has been one of my favorites hands down. It’s bright, it goes well with almost any other color, and it lightens the mood. Here are some of my favorite yellow creations.

Happy Friday!

Woven Wedges: A MUST This Season!

I have always LOVED woven wedges! These Michael Antonio shoes are wonderful and I will likely be buying them here in the near future. With a chunky wedges, the minimal straps makes this shoes the perfect balance. Here are some affordable, and some more expensive (out of my price range) woven wedges. Enjoy!

The Bold and The Beautiful…No, no, NOT the T.V. Show

This season is all about bold, beautiful colors. Whether it be a colorful blouse or pants, bright eye shadow or lips, or a bold purse or accessory, bold and beautiful is the theme of the season. I know for many people (umm, including me) bright bold colors are sometimes too much. They can be intimidating! You may think, I can’t pull that off.  But you can!!! You just need to pick the RIGHT PIECES for YOUR STYLE, no one else’s!  You dress for yourself right? Not other people.

So just stay true to your instincts and personal style and have fun with it. It doesn’t need to be over thought. What you need to remember is this:

  • If you’re doing to go with bold color, keep it simple. Pick one or two statement pieces, and make sure they go well together.
  • When you’re wearing pastels, there’s more room for additional colors because pastels are light. That doesn’t mean you should look like zebra gum and be every color of the rainbow.
  • COLORFUL PANTS ARE IN!!! Just pick a color that you like. And if you’re intimidated with colorful pants, go with pastel, and match it with a nude shoe, and white top. It’s so much easier that way.
  • Not quite ready to go with color clothes? That’s fine! Get a colorful bag, or some bracelets, or a statement necklace!

Vintage Finds that are LESS EXPENSIVE and BETTER than their fraternal twin!

Okay, you’re right. They’re clutches. They can’t have a twin. But seriously, these clutches are similar, and the price difference between them is so wonderful it makes me want to dance! I LOVE a good find! I means LOVE IT!
I love things that are nearly one-of-a-kind as well. There is something about vintage items that gives me that I’m an individual, I’m unique feeling. Knowing that I have something that almost no one else is likely sporting makes me happy.  There is often a charm to vintage items that draws me in.
I figured I would share these with all of you. But I’m not gonna lie, I was reluctant! I kept thinking, “Yes, these are awesome! But what if I decided that I want them afterall and someone else buys them first?!” I figure, better to share than to be greedy so you go! The pink vintage clutch from Etsy’s is my FAVORITE!!!
All of my purses with the exception of maybe one or two I bought online. I’m going to make a series out of these amazing deals and how I find very similar items with drastically different prices! Hope you enjoy!

Spring Maxi Dress and Accessories for almost NOTHING! Seriously!

I’m a huge fan of Forever 21. I know a lot of people aren’t. But for the prices, I don’t think you can really go wrong. Sometimes, all you want is a simple cotton dress. Why does it need to cost $100? I don’t think it does.

Certainly, there are items that warrant a high price tag, especially if it’s going to last. But I change up my clothes and styles frequently, -not to mention in MN we have serious seasonal changes, so I’m forced to change things up frequently! These items are not items I would ever spend a serious amount on. It’s just not necessary.

Enjoy!

Which items do you spend serious money on?

Wide Leg Style

I have loved wide leg pants since I can remember. I’ve been wearing them sinc I was probably 11. Even when they weren’t “in style” I still rocked them. Why? Because I felt like it. Wear what feels good to you, and don’t worry about look how everyone else wants  you to. If you style it right, even so called, “out-of-style” items can look great.

Style Does NOT Need to Cost You a Fortune!

Some cute, and lovely, and COMPLETELY AFFORDABLE outfits!

 

I’m a huge believer in spending my “cash monies” (yes that is what I call it) on certain things:

 

  • Things that are totally unique, that make my gasp loudly outloud in public, and the imagine in my head that I’m rolling around on the ground with excitement!
  • Items that are timeless (i.e. a nice gold watch)
  • Jewelry that I’m drawn to because it makes me think of my life and my family (gold bangles…so many have been given to me by my mother)

I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t think of any right now!

THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE!!

Spring Colors Aren’t Just for Flowers!

Take your wardrobe colors up a notch and add some of these light, but lively tones. Mixing and matching a couple of hues is perfect. Anymore, and you’ll be going overboard. My favorite colors to mix right now are peach and turquoise!! What are yours?
