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!

Coachella 2012: Yes music, but mostly BOHO FASHION!

Coachella 2012 was certainly a place of great music and entertainment. But for the fashion lover, it was a place of Bohemian styled lookbooks of great fashion. The fashion looks so similar to Woodstock.

Easy, breezy, a bit “hippie”, and free.

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.

 

 

Olivia Palermo's Polished Business Look

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!!

Can You Really Have Great Shoes for Less Than $35? Yes!!

I’m not a shoe person. I know! I know! You don’t get it. Every girl is a shoe person. Well, it’s jut not my thing. I think part of it is just that I have weird feet, with long toes, and terribly high arches so shoes just aren’t that comfortable for me. Anyway! My point is, because I know I wont wear most shoes all year round, especially here with Minnesota winters, I don’t like to spend much on my summer sandles. In fact, I don’t like to spend more that $25 on sandles!!

These are some cute shoes that can add a lot to an outfit, but aren’t great for every day wear (in my opinion). These are an example of great shoes, THAT ARE INEXPENSIVE!!  I know I wouldn’t wear them all the time, so spending more than this is just silly.

ALL OF THESE SHOES ARE UNDER $25!!!

Are you a shoe person? What shoe is worth the money to you? For me it’s leather boots and my running shoes.

Scarves are great year round. Perfect to add a pop of color to any outfit! And no, they don’t have to cost you a fortune!!
