Fall to summer is an odd transition as far as clothing goes (unless you’re the luckiest of luckies and live on a tropical island). Having said that, I decided to touch on seasonal transition dresses under $150 (even better).  It’s a gobally confusing period with the sun beating down in the day and the chill at night. My thermostat must think i’ve gone crazy with the amounts of times I switch it back and forth from heat to AC!  If you’re like me, you tend to reach for beautiful fall colored sweaters  prematurely and end up sweating bullets and saying naughty words by mid afternoon.   Lucky for us, we can keep the integrity of the seasonal change and  pull off fall colors and fabrics in summer attire….like this Blush Boutique light weight dress with a fall palate of burnt orange, navy blue and cream. 
 
Casual dresses are so easy to throw a light jacket or sweater over.  As you can tell above, I paired my transitional dress with this light denim vest from Target (I wear it all the time).  A dress like this would also be great with a scarf that doubles as a shawl for a cooler evening.  Regardless of how you wear it, a light and breezy dress with fall colors will leave you feeling ready for the transition and excited to cuddle (again instead of sweating bullets)!

Hey everyone! It’s been a little while since I posted a styled look. So, I thought I would kick this mid week post off with this killer softly structured Skylar dress by Cameo.  A trend we are seeing a lot of right now are the envelope style fold over/pointed bottom skirts and dresses.  You can find them on most on trend sites at all different price points.
 
This piece is from Flight Boutique in Park City, Utah.  I try to get up to Flight at least three times a year (I live relatively close, so it’s easy for me) to check out their effortless/boho pieces.  I usually take my sons (9 and 6) with me.  Like usual, they terrorize the place somewhat while I try to shop, and my visit usually gets cut short (so goes motherhood). The good news is that I never leave empty handed! Even with impatient kids around!  I think It’s always a good idea to support your local vendors. Then everyone is happy!
 
Much love and gratitude to you all.  xo

Australian Fashion Week Street Style 2014

As I prepare for New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 (yay), I can’t help but reflect on how inspiring street style at these events can be.  Style is a way to express who you are without saying a word.  Then when you do open your mouth, it makes you that much more interesting…..a sexy combo if you ask me.  The cool thing about fashion, is that there really aren’t too many rules.  As far as I’m concerned, fashion is opinion and in the eye of the beholder.  Besides a few seasonal guidelines, you are free to express yourself as you please.  How liberating!

I love the free spirited vibe you can feel from these Australian fashion week street style 2014 photos.  According to The Color Code book by Doctor Taylor Hartman,  Australia is a yellow colored country….like myself (except I’m a person not a country).  Characteristics of a yellow personality are…spontaneous, fun loving and enthusiastic (there are some negative traits as well).  I love seeing these traits come out in the street style photos.  Fashion allows one who may or may not normally be heard to feel like an individual who has a voice.

Be brave, be you and wear what makes you feel like a rockstar.  xo

 

My Spray Tanning Routine (video)

White Vince Long Sleeve Tee

Jcrew Tassel Trim Statement Necklace (similar style)
Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Debbie
Salon Bronze Tanning System 
 
Hey friends, I am getting venerable here with no makeup and in a swimsuit to share with you my spray tanning routine (video). The best part is the equipment is under $13.00 total. It’s all in the privacy of your own home and it will spray your entire body up to 3-4 times! Minus the aging!
 
I am sharing this with you because I LOVE this product and have been using it for about 9 years.  When I find something that works, I love sharing it with others….because friends don’t let friends look orange! I have tried other products that people have sworn by (some costing up to $150.00) and I always keep coming back to the Salon Bronze system.  I do have olive features and dark eyes, but a lot of my color is supplemented by this system.  Since I get a lot questions regarding my skin routine, I thought I would share this “secret” with you.  Hopefully you’ll feel sexy/perfectly painted and not like you rolled around in a bag of Cheetos!
 
Look your best to feel your best and then be your best. xo
