I love a great pair of heels but when I'm on the go...it's just too much to walk in them AND get things done. So I've rekindled my love for flats but not just any flats. Loafers are the best thing to have in your closet these days. They add comfort and character to your look. Studded, bright hues, leather, suede, brown, round, and pointed toes. Which ever the way the wind blows...you'll be in style and ready.
Memorial Day weekend is here and let me guess, you have nothing to wear right? Worry no more my distraught friend in fashion. The key to a great look this weekend is a great pair of shoes and a nice bag. If you're on my side of the world, it's too hot for layering;this is a time when statement pieces are the answer to your problems.
Getting dressed doesn't have to be a total headache. Often times it's quite simple. Wait. You must first begin with an organized closet then your mornings, afternoons, and even nights of getting dressed, would be a lot smoother. Strut your stuff this weekend and show them what you've got.
When you go out with your friends or even when you're alone, what does your steps say? Yes you read that correctly. Sometimes your style can say everything about you without you having to say a word. The mood you're in, your confidence, and of course your taste. Why not say all the right things with one step? It's possible...believe me. Statement shoes are the same as statement jewelry. A completion of a raw outfit and all of its rough edges. Here's a few of my statement shoes. All from Zara and affordable ;-) check them out .
Today I finally got a chance to wear my faux leather pleated skirt. I've bee trying to wear it since I purchased it months ago in New York. Pleats can be tricky if you don't layer or tuck something properly. One way to avoid the school girl look is to pair the skirt with detailed heels or sandals and not Mary Janes or Baby Doll shoes. Pleats can also had weight so be mindful of the size of the pleats. Larger pleats add dept in the wrong places.
I also suggest that you pair tops with busy prints with a nude or simple toned bottom. Why? Well it can come off as a bit much if you don't match your prints correctly. Print on print is a current trend [yes] but that trend calls for concentration and confidence. It's not a look for everyone. If your style is more on the minimal side, start out with just one print like I'm wearing and work your way up the pattern ladder as time goes on.
Denim has to be one of the most times less pieces that you'll ever have I. Your wardrobe. No. Really.Read More
