On trend {Funky Stripes!}

25 Jul

On trend: Fun stripes

Aren’t stripes so fun!? They definitely add cute detailing to outfits and, like the dress and dinnerware, they can add fabulous + different colors! I’ve always been hesitant to wear horizontal stripes because, as they say, they add..width and well, I don’t want any width added where it doesn’t need to be! (Ha!) But, I think with the right outfit, the right shape, and color, we can all rock stripes! Here’s a peek at a fun outfit  featuring the coool dress that would be perfect for work!

I love the colors in this dress!  A bit of coral and pink with neutral accents balance it so it’s not overpowering! With a peachy coral cardigan and accessories, black heels and belt, and a fab blue watch, this outfit is kind of..gorgeous? The bag also has a hint of a stripey detail and brings in the same colors as the dress! I’m almost convinced they were made for each other. Seriously. What do you think about stripes? How do you wear them?!

What’s Trending? {Pastels}

Pretty Pastels

Ohhh – I love pastels! With colored skinnies, pretty blouses, and two-toned bags, so many happy colors for your wardrobe!  Hey, you can even add some pastel colors to your home with paint (like the Benjamin Moore Yellow) or the pretty mint-y vase! What I love about this new trend of pretty pastels, you can mix the colors colors without it being over the top crazy (aka you won’t look like a rainbow!) Using some of the pieces above, I created this fab pastel outfit:

Whatchya think? I looove those purple jeans – a great, light color (perfect for summer!) The bracelet brings in a ton of fun colors that you can pull in with accessories. The blouse isn’t entirely neutral, it has a tint of orange in it so I paired this with blush colored platform pumps! I want to wear this nowww!

What to Wear… {Summer Weddings}

4 Jul
Wedding Looks

Okay so even though I’ve only actually been to one wedding… I’m obsessed. I love wedding shows, my wedding board on pinterest is consistently growing, and I’m trying to hint to any of my friends in serious relationships that I really want to go to a wedding…soon! No one is listening. Yet. All is well, at least I can use Polyvore to put together fun outfits for all wedding festivities! I created three looks today that, I think, are great for three types of summer weddings: on a beach, during the day, and in the evening.

A beach wedding is generally a bit more casual so my outfit reflected that. I also threw in heels AND flats because who wants to (or can) wear heels in the sand? Not I. I also pulled in some hot styles and colors of this season! For the daytime dress, let me just tell you it looks MUCH better on the model in the photos than as is shown here (not as long and oddly shaped). It’s put together and classy for a wedding but still super cute, right?! My favorite outfit here is the one for the evening cocktails – I love the necklace! I kind of love black and purple and that dress is SO cute (it has a bow going across the back!) so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to bring those two colors together! Whatchya think? Which outfit do YOU like the best? Anyone have any summer weddings they want to invite me to? Haha! Let me know!
