Knee Split Denim

split knee denimblack jeanslongline crop topprinted cropgold beaded clutchwooden heels

This look works for so many casual occasions, date night? How about Sunday Brunch? Casual doesn’t have to mean boring! I am all about a effortless and trendy outfit to really show off your style. Play up a printed top with a beaded clutch and comfortable platform sandals. The wooden heel keeps the outfit from seeming too over the top but the clutch helps add some glam. My go to jeans are these black Asos knee split denim jeans that can work with any look. Hope this look can inspire a fun outing!

Printed Bell Bottoms and Lace Peplums

Braided Up Do Lace Mesh Peplum High Waist Bell Bottoms Lace peplum Lace see through Lace Sheer Top Printed Bell BottomSequin ClutchMake Up and Up do

It took me a bit to pick up on this bell bottoms trend, but here they are and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you all! My first encounter with this trend I found that they did not flatter my figure and passed them up for a long while, until I found a style with a print with a downward motion which helps elongate my short figure. I would love to help you find the right style to flatter your body shape. Its all about print, length and shape. For those of you with short legs a solid color or downward print flare pant will help lengthen your look. If you are like me and have a longer torso I suggest a high waist to add the illusion of long legs even more so. For those of you with petite shapes the wide leg flare will help give more curve to your silhouette and you can honestly pull off prints or solids equally. For curvy figures I would suggest solid chooses over print, but if you want something fun try a downward print instead of side to side or the Meraki Moon option has a stripes in the material. Contact me with any questions!

My Favorite Current Trend: Co-ord

We are getting all matchy matchy on today’s post. The co-ords trend has been on the rise for some time now, but its not going any where anytime soon. I had so much fun finding some fun pieces for all of you to enjoy and hopefully love enough to own and join in on this too cute trend! All I know is this isn’t the last time you’ll be seeing this trend on the blog. This look works well for many body types; both long and short torsos can join in on this look. The concept of monochromatic looks to help lengthen your torso works well in this case, because it is all one print. This look puts enthuses on the legs which is never a bad thing in my opinion. The high waist shorts help still show of your figure while the baggy garments hide any areas you aren’t to fond to show off. Contact me if you need help finding the right Co-ord for your body type!

I love spring!  It’s a time of renewal and freshness and possibilities.  The colors, the smells and the crisp air turning warm are all signs of spring.  I personally love pastels and florals which are a sure sign of spring but I love the earthy-ness that is spring as well.  I chose to use these colors to convey that spring is more than just flowers and baby blue.  This is my definition of a laid back outfit; which in my case means causal, cute and trendy. I am all about the mix and match looks lately. In this outfit I’mmixing up the textures (knit cargo and lace) a bit to give this cutesy look a little edge.  Because I love them so, I’ve added one of my go to vintage Dooney and Bourke purses; similar vintage bags can be found on eBay, the link can be found below.
