Reese Witherspoon Inspired Outfit

The reason I love dresses for the summer is that it so easy to get dressed and look pulled together. With a simple military green dress that is belted and modern peices thrown in (fedora and metallic flats) Reese looks chic and fresh.

Wine Tasting

Jerron and I are celebrating our 6 year anniversary tomorrow! 6 years is like 20 now adays and I feel that our love gets better as the years go by, so it was appropritate that we celebrated at a winery!

My outfit was one that I was comfortable with wearing in a car for the 3 hour car ride and also looked dressy enough for the winery. A cotton tee tucked into a high waisted "paperbag" skirt accessoried with a leopard print scarf fit the bill. The strappy espadrilles completed the look.

Long Printed Skirt

I so often see the long maxi skirts in the store and wonder what to pair with it. First thought that comes to mind is "Little House on the Prarie", but you can wear one and look cool!

First choose a tiered skirt that has a print and pair this peice with a wide belt. This combo will instantly update this look. I recommend to stay in the neutral color range and do not...i repeat do not chose a floral print! Find a loose white button up shirt and tie at the waist. Add a pair of espadrilles and your set to go milk a cow or help Pa with the fire wood...just kidding!

Vanessa Hudgens

Do you happen to be jet setting to Europe first class? No? Well, can still look like it! Vanessa has a very obtainable look that I love! She is casual yet feminine. And I'm not the only one who thinks so, "Candies" for Kohl's has her line of clothes and accessories for cheap! Check it out here:

I've always been a fan of dark colored jeans and a white tee. But that can be kind of boring. Punch it up with a bright colored scarf (which can magically cover any stains on the white shirt...if you're anything like me) and instead of flip flops wear gladiator sandals. A large black top handled bag will hold all your stuff so you can shove it in the overhead department and avoid all the airline fees :)

Sunny outlook

Recently I've been very attracted to yellow and blue. It must be the dreary weather! When it comes to cardigans, Old Navy has the biggest bang for your buck! They have a great array of colors, lengths, and styles usually for under $25.

A big trend right now is wearing shorts with wedge espadrilles. The trick here is to find shorts that have at least a 3 inch inseam. Also find a pair that don't hug your thighs. Loose flowy shorts will create a skirt like effect. When it comes to the espadrilles find a nude colored pair. This color will help elongate your legs and won't cut you off at the ankle.

It's Pretty Cool!

The weather can't decide if it wants to stay hot or cool. Right now in Indiana the temperature is 60 degrees in the morning and topping out at 75 degrees in the afternoon. For me, that's chilly. So I've begun to layer my cardigans over flowy sundresses.

Reese Witherspoon (seen below) stays pretty and comfy in her dress and boyfriend cardigan. The longer length of the cardigan creates a lengthening effect. The nude wedges also add to her height by making her legs appear longer. Play up this look with great accessories like a fedora and sunglasses.

All American classic

I'm baaaack!! After a long break (not by choice) I'm back to fashion once again! :)

So let's get right to it! Sometimes getting dressed is a hassle. There are those days where I just don't feel like dressing up, but I don't want to look like a bum either. So what do you wear on these type of style slump days? Classic jeans and a comfy tee of course!

Classic style is always great especially when you don't want to "think" to hard about an outfit. Pieces that should always be in your closet include a great pair of jeans and a white v neck shirt. Adding wedge heels and beautiful necklaces gives this look a girly appeal . The blazer is a great alternative to a cardigan and later can be a sundress cover up when the weather gets chilly.
