Spring Trends: Denim

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!

Happy VDay to me!

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.

Comfy Comfy Comfy…

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.

Dinner Date

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.

**Don’t mind the quality of the pic on the left. I had to switch over to the cell phone.

Spring Trends: Lace, Flowers, and Crochet

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.

Champagne Wishes

Obsessing over this photo of Crystal Renn in Elle Canada’s January 2010 issue. You’ve probably already seen it, but I just had to post it again. Love…love…love the champagne, the big hair, and the cuff she’s wearing. I want to be like her when I grow up.

Show Some Love: Part II

Asos at ShopStyle

Make Valentine’s Day fun the entire weekend-with any of these heart accessories. I’m seriously trying to get my hands on a pair of heart sunglasses. I would love to wear them out and about this weekend. Although, a Betsey Johnson ring sparkling on my finger wouldn’t hurt either. Hmmm?? I’m going to need to think this over.

Show Some Love: Part I

Tory Burch at ShopStyle


I know…I know…you are tired of all the Valentine’s Day posts. Telling you to wear red and pink on the “Day of Love.” But, have you even thought about showing some love on those cute feet of yours? Represent “V-Day” with shoes? Why not? You love shoes, right? I know, silly question.

Work of Art

Every year I look for the perfect spring dress. This curve hugging beauty might have made the cut.

What a divine dress! This Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Print Sheath Dress is on my Nordstrom shopping list.

This watercolor design reminds me of a Monet portrait. I guess it is a work of art…a masterpiece…maybe?

The sleek cut and draping, makes a girl like me happy. Puts our curves in all the right places. I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly what I need.
