Preparing for Spring

I don't know about you, but I am SICK of winter!! I hate dressing for the cold, the slush on the bottom of my pants, wearing my coat inside buildings because I'm freezing my butt off...etc., etc. So I am officially preparing for Spring! Imagining this coming Summer when it's going to be SO hot that I won't even leave my house...I can't wait :)

I am longing for the day when I can walk out of my house in a crisp white dress and people won't look at me like I'm an idiot...even though I constantly see people in shorts and flip flops (I look at them like they're idiots).

All the items in my set are from H&M. If you don't have an H&M nearby, I am SO sorry! Petition for the next store in your area :) OR you can come to Fort Wayne, I'll take you out to lunch and we can be shopping buddies for a day! H&M is fantastic for finding designer knock off's for cheap and good quality. From dresses to socks and everything in between, this store is it!

When it comes to a white dress anything goes. Find your style and roll with it! I've gone two ways...daytime neutral and evening brights. I love to wear a colorful lipstain when wearing white just make sure the rest of your make up is toned down.

Valentine's Day

Wondering what to get your loved one for Valentine's Day? Put down the credit card because a survey done by COSMO magazine shows that men want YOU more than anything! Awww....they CAN be sweet!

So here's what you can do for your lovey-dee. Instead of waiting for an hour to get into a restaurant, take advantage of the many take out options there are. If your man wants steak, surprise him with a sit down dinner at home courtesy of Outback Steakhouse! Put some music on from Pandora and slip into a "comfy" outfit. Can you believe that over 80% of men want to see you in his button down white work shirt! Wear your hair down and pump up the volume with hot rollers. Now get out dessert (chocolate covered strawberries of course!) and a bottle of wine and your set to enjoy the rest of the evening :)

70's chic

If yesterday's skinny jean scared you, today's flare is more your style! As you can see, yesterday's and today's outfit is very similar. All I did was switch out the pants.

With any outfit you have to design it around your body type. Not everyone is comfortable in a skinny jean. That is what I love about this year's designer styles! Every shape is getting it's own fashion update!

The flare jean is my favorite style! I love the 70's care free bold prints and flow-y fabrics. The 2012 Flare is different from the 70's flare in that it isn't as wide at the ankle opening and has a pleat down the leg. This design is meant to be worn with heels, as this will lengthen your legs. These pants must always skim the floor. The trick with finding a great pair is to fit your widest part (which for me is my waist) and then hem the bottoms as needed. I usually just go with a taller heel :)

Bold and the Beautiful

I know, I know...I've been VERY neglectful of my blog! Can you feel the guilt! Well, I promise I will bring you daily fashion and sale updates from now on! :)

Today's outfit comes courtesy of Old Navy and Urban Outfitters. Don't you just love Old Navy!? I'm very happy that they have gone to an East Coast Indie feel with their clothing! I LOVE bright colors and happy prints!

This Spring, pants are going to come in all shapes and sizes. Straight leg is still popular, but now you will be rolling up the ankle to the smallest part (right above the ankle bone) and wearing them with flats or short heels. Also popular...Wide Leg! These pants are High Waisted and should be worn with platforms and have creased legs. I will be showing you these pants tomorrow.

Colored Jeans are BIG this season! You can find them in pastels and brights. I found this great pair of straight leg jeans in a Burgundy which looks great on all skin tones. Pair Straight Leg Pants with a billowy top and a complementary vest that cinches at the waist. The "perfect" pair of low heels complements the outfit and also elongates the legs. Add your favorite bracelets and you're ready for a lunch date with the girls!
