Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Spring Transition

Hello lovelies! I am so excited to be doing my third Flat Lay to Life-Styled post for you!  I have gotten such good feedback about this one that I think it is going to stay permanently. YAY!  I have so much fun writing it and think it serves a great purpose in bringing you more details on my styling advice. This one is going to be about Spring Transition which I have been concentrating on for the past couple of weeks. When I help clients they all have the same issue with trying to figure out what to wear this time of year.  It is still winter time but it’s cold one day and hot the next.  All the stores are getting Spring things in…

Must-Have Denim for Spring 2018

Hey y’all! Do you have anything in your wardrobe that you just love and gravitate towards every day? You can probably guess what mine is by all my photos!  Well, if you can’t I guess I will just have to tell you….denim!  I absolutely feel my best when I am in a good pair of jeans. I like denim so much I even try to keep up with all the news and trends in the denim industry.  I don’t know if you have ever heard of New York Denim Days but it is a festival of all-things Indigo! One of these days I hope to go and indulge myself in the numerous exhibitors from the fashion, denim and art worlds. I also subscribe to a…

A Beautiful Eyelet Blouse: Spring 2018 Trend

Hey ladies! One of my favorite trendy items for the Spring 2018 season is a beautiful white eyelet blouse.  I think they are so pretty and so extremely versatile. You can find them in many price ranges and styles.  I chose one from H&M that I absolutely love and it was under $35!  This is an item I would not recommend spending a whole lot on because it is white and trendy.  I would choose this as an addition to your essential wardrobe, which I wrote about in my last post.  This is one of those additional pieces that is a great purchase for this season. I have styled this blouse a few different ways.  Some people would only put this on and wear it…

How to Create Your Spring Wardrobe “Canvas”

Hey ladies! The hot question that I am going to address in this blog post is: What will I need to make a great Spring wardrobe?  I am going to give you the essentials that you need to get you started. You will continue to add things to make it your own personal style but this should always come first.  I like to start with the essentials of your wardrobe because they are what you will need for layering and mixing and matching throughout the season. These essentials are just basics that are the “canvas” for your wardrobe. Think of it like a painting.  You start with a canvas and build on it to make your picture from there.  You can not build the picture…

Transition with the Color of Spring!

Happy Monday everyone!  We have finally hit February which means we are that much closer to Spring time!  I have  been doing a series on some things that you can wear now and will be great for your Spring wardrobe.  This post is to add in another element for Spring and that is the PANTONE color of the Spring Season 2018 I love that it is Ultraviolet.  We will see so many beautiful shades of this color and one of them is lavender.  It has taken me a few (or maybe several) years to actually start liking this color again.  I worked at a store back in the day that had lavender everything! And I am not kidding.  The store was about 1000 square feet…

How to Style a Denim Trucker Jacket

Hey y’all! I hope things are going well for everyone! I never thought I would be talking to you about a denim jacket but here I am!  The denim jacket is a classic piece that has been around for YEARS! The interesting thing about a denim jacket is they seem to always be available for purchase but are not always in style. All that is about to change!! If you have had one sitting in your closet for years it is time to pull it out or get a new one!  This is a must have for your Spring wardrobe and they are available everywhere in a variety of colors and styles.  Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the Levi’s original trucker jacket so…

How to Style a Tie Front Cardigan

Hey chica’s! I hope you had a great week! Mine has been fun and very productive.  I  started shopping recently after my detox from Christmas time and found this cute tie front cardigan from J Crew. When I tried it on I really liked it but wanted to do some more shopping before I decided to buy it.  This tie front cardigan was $68, so I really needed to love it.  After my not-so-productive shopping endeavors I decided to go back to J Crew and try the cardigan on again. When I did they had just marked it down to $43.99 AND it was additional 50% off ! I got that sucker for $21! What a great end to my unproductive shopping night! I wanted…
