Anyways…L.A. was really beautiful today, it was in the 70′s. I didn’t want to wear pants, so I threw on this new dress compliments of Shade Clothing. It’s so comfortable and it has pockets! There’s a band at the waist and pleating, which is flattering btw. The second photo, is what I’m wearing now. I am going to have dinner with the in-laws and now it’s a little chilly. I love wearing tights and boots.
What do you wear when you go shopping?
There were angels, butterflies, flowers, bows, and sparrows. Every season, a new print explodes into our wardrobes.
This season, you can’t walk into your favorite boutique without trying on at least one item with the peacock design. It’s everywhere.
The question is…are you buying it?
Welcome to the Curves and Chaos jungle! This safari spring trend is for the fashionista woman warrior.
Colors like camel, khaki, and Army green can be incorporated into any wardrobe. A simple white tee, tank, or blouse is key for bottoms. Tops go great with jeans.
Don’t forget your accessories either. Canvas bags and wood adorned jewelry add an edge to any outfit. I can’t forget the basketweave-inspired shoe. It’s definitely on my shopping list…along with #5.
My golden rule: Be confident in whatever you wear. Remember, it’s an urban jungle out there!

I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Here it goes. I use to think gladiator sandals were ugly. There! I said it. But, now they are all that I want to wear for spring and summer. I am also a big fan of the slouchy ‘nomad’ sandal. It’s like playing dress-up, with your feet. I still love my flip-flops, don’t get me wrong. But, I think it’s time to step out in a different style.
When I think of denim, the first thing that comes to mind is a great pair of jeans. If you’re the same way, you might want to rethink denim this spring. It’s coming at ya’ in the form of jewelry, dresses, skirts, shoes, and jackets. Are you ready?
**My fave is #2 the Denim Allure Dress by F21. I wanted to buy it this weekend but they only one left and it was too small!
My golden rule: Don’t do denim head to toe. Add one piece and work around it. You don’t want to look like a denim factory threw up on you!

I know we all love shopping. But, seriously I LOVE SHOPPING! My Valentine’s gift from the hubby was shopping this weekend. He’s a romantic…I know. It was definitely a great Valentine’s Day!
I picked up a lot of great pieces. Including, this sweetheart dress from Forever 21′s Faith 21 line. I am going to a 50th Wedding Anniversary and I’m not sure if this is appropriate or not. I love the dress, but the neckline is a little low. If I wear it I am going to add something underneath, so I’m not flashing everyone at the celebration. Lol.
The dress was on the web site last night, but it’s not there today. (Good thing I grabbed the image last night) It disappeared.
If there is one word to describe my personal style, it would have to be comfortable. If I’m not happy with what I’m wearing I’ll be miserable.
This past weekend is a great example of that. The weather was beautiful here in L.A. and I was happy to pull out the sandals. The scarf you see was a lucky purchase on a Saturday morning shopping spree. A definite bargainista find!
As you can see in the pic, my fave piece of clothing right now is a pair of leggings. I adore leggings! Seriously, my husband asked me if I wear real pants anymore. Lol. I am also in love with the long and soft tees from Old Navy. They are a great price and I can wear them long, with a belt, or tuck them in if I want.
Sorry about the blurry pics, but all I have right now is my phone. I’m not on professional photo status yet. I’m just getting the hang of this.
The hubby and I decided to go out on a dinner date last night. I wanted to wear something that I haven’t worn in a long time. I reached into my closet and pulled out that pencil skirt and the v-neck floral tee. I was definitely in the mood to try something different with my outfit. Trying the high-waisted look was very daring for me. I still wanted to be comfy, so I threw on this plum-colored sweater and patent leather flats. I love these flats, they are super comfy. I bought them a year ago and I wear them all the time! Hope I don’t look too grumpy. I’m still sick and wasn’t having much luck with my camera.
Bring out your soft side this spring with lace, flowers, and crocheted pieces. You aren’t the dainty type? It’s OK, you can add a feminine touch to your outfits with a sexy crocheted back, a flower adorned top, or a simple lace dress. Still too much? Try a lace-inspired piece of lingerie underneath your clothes…then you can go from there.
Don’t know what to wear with any of the pieces below? How about pairing any of these tops with a great pair of skinny jeans or leggings. Adding a simple ballet flat will add a romantic touch to any of the dresses below. Not into flats? A nude or taupe heel could work.
Remember: lace, flowers, and crochet don’t have to be your worst enemy.
My golden rule: Don’t forget to keep it simple. You don’t want to look too adorned.
