When it comes to putting together outfits, pattern mixing is by far the most intimidating style to create. It’s really easy for this to go too far, so when I see items come out that do the mixing for me, I get really excited.
The pairing of polka dots and florals creates such a beautiful, feminine look – the ladylike floral is taken to a whole new fun level with the dots.
The popular saying is that “behind every great man, is a great woman.” But I’d challenge that behind every great woman is a group of every greater women. I’m so glad that I got to introduce you to just a few of the incredible women in my life.
If 2016 had a color, it would be olive.
Everywhere you turn, olive is alive in bomber jackets, jeans, cozy sweaters and of course… dresses. When a color or a trend gets so saturated, I find myself looking for interesting takes on it – a fashionista has to stand out!
Experiencing a full fall season is something I’ve missed since moving to Phoenix all those years ago. It seems like another lifetime when I would ride my bike through the woods, crushing fallen leaves with the wheels of my two-speed, laughing with my friends. Lately, fall days are roughly 89 degrees and full of sunshine.
I teamed up with my favorite affordable fashion brand, Fashion to Figure, to create a lookbook filled with Halloween goodness to get you ready for this weekend. I know babes are on a budget and let’s face it – some Halloween costumes are CRAZY expensive – so it’s always nice to have a festive, spooky look that can also be a part of your daily life after the parties are over.
Today is my birthday. And, as I think most people do, I spent it reflecting on the past year. Last year was a challenging one, with highs and lows. I lost people I loved very much. I grew my business and was able to achieve a lot of goals I had for myself. I was able to travel a lot more and learned so much.
Over the years, as my style has grown and changed, one thing has remained constant: the abundance of destroyed denim (or ripped jeans for those less fashion-verbiage inclined). Besides oozing with attitude, the are so incredibly versatile. No matter what your taste or style, there will be some version of the plus size ripped jeans world that will work for you.
I love this look if you have a late summer/early fall wedding – the grey plus size trench coat contrasts with the blush pink of the dress while still keeping the look soft. I am straight up obsessed with this lace trench and can see myself wearing it a TON over the next few months.
