Style Trend: Summer Scarves

Accessories are an essential piece to any outfit. One of my favorite accessories is the multi-use scarf. Love it in all materials! This week alone I bought 2 scarves! And as I was perusing my fave blogs, I came across a few outfit posts where they accessorized with a scarf. Yes, I know it’s summer, but you can still wear them! Just make sure to stay away from the heavy materials like 100% pure wool and cashmere. I tend to lean towards the silk, cotton, and linen. FYI…I want these!I love thrifting scarves too! They are really inexpensive and can…

Yes…Another Update

It’s almost August and here I am, fresh out of the pool——>Wait a second…I will be in NYC in 5 days! I can’t believe how fast all of this is happening. If you would have asked me a month ago if I was going to attend the BlogHer conference…I would’ve said no. Now, not only am I attending, but I’m a volunteer. So super duper excited to meet bloggers from all over the United States and learn from them. I am very grateful for this experience.I will be tweeting, vlogging, and blogging about my trip. From outfit posts (including an…

Colored Inspired: Red

Plus Tops by AlfaniFlats by Nine WestThere is just something about the color red that screams “Look at me!” It’s such a hot color and I love it! Maybe it’s the red Camaro my mom drove when I was little, but it has always been my favorite color. I was at the mall yesterday and everything red caught my eye. Especially the shoes! And then I looked in my closet and realized I don’t even have any red pieces! I need to get my hands on something red.

No Wire Bras!

I am on a mission! A mission to find a soft cup/wire free bra that will support these puppies! Underwire bras have been bugging me lately! But, I don’t want just any bra. Once I get back from NYC, there’s going to be some serious bra shopping going on. I found a few below that I thought might work for me, in certain clothing and life situations.

Beauty trends come and go, but advice lives forever. Right? I’ll never forget the beauty advice my mom gave me as a teen.

Blogger Q&A: Amelia

AmeliaBoston, MASound BitesWho is your favorite fashion designer and why?My favorite designer changes with each season, as I constantly see my perspective on style and fashion change. Marc Jacobs is a consistent favorite and I love what the Rodarte sisters do, as well. However, right now, I am crushing on a local designer from Boston, Millie Bautista, who after seeing her clothing first hand, has converted me into an instant fan.
