Scuba Florals

21 April 2014

For me nothing brightens up a dreary day or week quite like a floral. Spring or Fall. So last week when I was pouting over the cold snap we were experiencing (snow was involved guys) I reached for this eye catching neoprene skirt and I knew it would snap me out of my polar vortex funk. It did, and it went perfectly with my mini quilted crossbody.

Silver-Screen Style: The Other Woman

18 April 2014

If you follow me on any of my social networks you might remember me blowing up your feed Wednesday while having a girls night with Popsugar, equipped with a screening of The Other Woman, goodies and most importantly, Patricia Field, who did the wardrobe for the film. It was kind of amazing. 
As for the movie, it's hard for me to decide what I loved more, the girl's on screen chemistry (real talk: the movie was hilarious) or the clothes. Honestly it's both, and I think that's what makes it work so well. Sure, "clothes are pretty but you have to laugh" Pat said after the screening and I couldn't agree more.  And being that I spent a good portion of the movie laughing, I'd say mission accomplished.
Now, let's talk onscreen style.

Patricia made each character's personality speak volumes through their wardrobe, which I wouldn't expect anything less, we are talking about the woman who made SATC what it is.. 

Kate (Leslie Mann) was an updated Charlotte York donning cheery, colorful hues and prints matching her Connecticut housewife & playful spirit to the t. While Carly (Cameron Diaz), a high powered lawyer, added a touch of edge to her sophisticated ensembles. Leather pencil skirts and Jimmy Choos, yes please. Amber (Kate Upton) was definitely more laid back when it came to her style, and was often in playful sundresses, tees and shorts. Though her in a white bikini is all va-va voom. As for the final style star Lydia (Nicki Minaj), she stole the room every time she walked in with her boldly printed curve hugging ensembles paired effortless with her witty remarks. I'm not going to lie, I kind of love her more now than ever before. 

So if you're looking for the perfect girls night out flick with a little style and lot of laughter, head to the theaters April 25th and catch the three gals and their outrageous shenanigans. Xo.

Little White Dress

17 April 2014

When Spring hits there's a whole list of essentials to have in your closet, most importantly, the little white dress. It can be paired with sneaks, heels, sandals and layered with just about everything. It's one of the easiest must haves on the list, plus it's more cheery than it's black counterpart. This Lulu's dress is the perfect dress for the job, it's playful and has a little smidge of frill for those days of wearing it sans layers.

Overalls

16 April 2014

stylish overalls
Yep, I took the plunge and got a pair of overalls. I'm probably just as shocked as you are, because let's be real the last thing I wanted to do is recreate was my brother and I in our matching overalls as kids. Though I have a feeling he might be proud right now.

However, I figure when it comes to trends you have to try them at least once as you never know what you're going to love or not love without at least trying it once, right? Plus it was really hard for me to say no when I saw them hanging there for only $25 at Marshall's - so I grabbed them, tried them on and kind of fell in love. I wasn't the only one who loved them, when I showed my husband what I was wearing he quickly said how much he loved them, he was serious, and I was surprised to say the least. But I digress...I immediately knew that my first outfit would have to channel SJP on Ellen because I really loved it, like so much so that I was immediately ok with overalls. So, it felt natural.

Short Suit

15 April 2014

I've been searching for a short suit for quite sometime now. Originally I wanted something subtly printed or perhaps even pastel (really, all the above), but when I spotted this one on major sale from ASOS I knew the price and timing was right. Luckily for me it goes perfectly with my also new blouse from Everlane

Tailored, Bold and Perfect for Spring. Expect to see more appearances in the near future while I pair it away...

Beauty Must-haves: Liquid Keratin

14 April 2014

If you read on a regular basis you're fully aware of my unruly mane. 

Now, while on most occasions I embrace it, I sometimes find that I want to look a little more polished. Enter Liquid Keratin. A new at home keratin treatment targetted towards creating longer, smoother and straighter hair. Now, I'll be the first to admit that I was worried it was going to turn my hair stick straight but I used it sparingly just in case. At first, yes it was straight and it was definitely smoother. However, as time went on I was able to keep my [precious] waves, like I had hoped.  It's been about 3 weeks since my treatment and I've found it's stayed pretty managable in the smooth department (less tangles baby!),  and it's supposed to last up to 3 months. Best part, the kit is under $60. Up to 3 months of sleeker, smoother hair ? I think yes.
