What’s better than and ‘it’ girl or a jumpsuit? An ‘it’ girl in a jumpsuit! Lupita Nyong’o has been burning up the red carpet since she hit the scene and each look gets better and better. My ultimate favorite alternative for a dress for an elegant occasion is a jumpsuit. This sleek black, strapless Veronica Beard jumpsuit Lupita is sporting here is super flirty yet sophisticated. Of course, this girl knows how to accessorize and she added some fun touches with printed pumps and a pop of color clutch. I found a similar sweetheart neckline, strapless jumpsuit for only $80 and have provided a way to style it like Lupita.
It looks like the skinny boyfriend jean is getting a slimming makeover this season and I’m all for it. Don’t get me wrong. I love my comfy boyfriend jeans but they don’t have the most flattering effect on my derriere. The skinnier version of the boyfriend jean is more feminine but still maintains the ‘borrowed from the boys’ vibe. This week’s splurge or steal features a pricey pair by True Religion that retail for $268. That’s not too bad but the Levi’s pair are only $98 and are just as cute. What would you do? Splurge or steal?
It’s that time of the year when families and friends head out of town on fun excursions for spring break. I was not so lucky to be going anywhere fun this time so instead I live vicariously through Instagram posts of happy people enjoying the beach. I decided that if I can’t go anywhere, I can at least help someone plan a fabulous outfit for their fun trip. This is something I would wear if I was headed to the beaches of say…St Barts. I love eye-catching, bright swimwear. Bright colors look so good in the sun and no one makes a more colorful bikini than Mara Hoffman. I especially love the bustier top which is great for us ladies who aren’t as blessed in the cleavage area. A soft, white tunic cover-up is a nice complement to offset bright swimwear and I love the bohemian feel of this one. You can easily throw on some cut-off shorts and head to lunch. Oversized sunglasses will be huge this season and they always add a touch of glam to a look. A lot of people forget about wearing jewelry at the beach or pool but I love to accessorize at all times. A simple pendant necklace is easy and chic. All you need is a great straw bag and some fun sandals. These Kate Spade sandals are too adorable.
The arrival of a new season means new trends and one of the hottest trends this spring are crop tops. Most crop tops have a boxy silhouette which isn’t always flattering which is why I love the bustier crop top. It’s sexy and feminine but can be intimidating for many women to wear. If styled the wrong way, one could be confused for a streetwalker so here is some advice on how to style this trend. I chose this black and white lace bustier crop top by Topshop. The color was easy to style and the lace made it a little more interesting. Sporty chic is going to be big this spring as well and adding a ladylike touch to a men’s fashion inspired look is always cool. A silky bomber jacket, leather jogger pants, and wedge sneakers will help create a feminine yet sporty feel. You can add this bustier underneath a sophisticated white suit to add a little sexy for a nice dinner date. Lastly, you can take your crop top to all the many festivals that come with warm weather. Just add some high-waisted shorts, booties, and a moto jacket and you’re good to go!
Yes! I have another fitness clothing crush! It’s Koral activewear and I’m totally obsessed! I stumbled upon this newly- launched, L.A.-based clothing line on Daily Candy and promptly went to the website to see more. What I found was sexy workout clothes any fitchick would die to wear. Some of my favorite finds are the turquoise open back tank, liquid leggings, and a jumpsuit. Yes! A jumpsuit! This line is cute, sexy, and tough all rolled into one. Check it out!
Do you see why I love this brand? You can shop it at Nordstrom.com or Shopbop.com. You’ll be the hottest girl at the gym or studio!
Ok. This is a trend I wasn’t too sure about at first, but know I’m turning the corner. I think it was the stiletto version of gladiators that threw me off. They seemed a little too brazen or even cartoonish, but the flat versions have a nice bohemian feel. Gladiator sandals are not necessarily a new trend but will definitely be revisited strongly this spring. I think that they would look absolutely adorable with a soft, flowing mini dress like I saw in a Macy’s fashion show last week. So, I was on the fence, but now I think they’re a go. What do you think? Will the inner gladiator in you rise up this spring?
I had the great pleasure of attending the Secret Garden Fashion Show at Macy’s hosted by the fabulous Christopher Macken on Friday. Spring has finally arrived and so have the spring trends! We received a glimpse of what will be hot this season.
Eagerly anticipating the show….
Guests enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres including scrumptious mini strawberry cupcakes, drinks, and music.
I have never been a huge fan of lace but this little swing top number was too cute for words. I love the pop of color from these covetable orange wedges.
Another adorable example of the lace trend and also the bohemian trend with this Free People dress. I love the flat gladiator sandals! A must-have addition to my closet!
I’m a girl that loves a great jumpsuit and will definitely be rocking them this season. This look is ultra chic in black and white. The glamorous hat will have people wondering ‘who’ you are…..
These shoes!!! #stevemadden!!
There will be more mixing prints this spring. I would have never thought to pair floral sandals with a snakeskin print romper but it really works.
Ahhhh….pastels and florals. Nothing else says spring like this lovely combo.
Here I am posing with the wonderful Christopher Macken
