A couple months ago, I entered a contest to win free shoes for a year from Steve Madden, and I won! (It’s no lottery, but hey I’m certainly not complaining!) These floral platforms are the first pair I chose – aren’t they adorable? I love how they are reminiscent of the Miu Miu Mary Janes from a few years ago.
What fabulous shoes would you pick from Steve Madden? Leave me your ideas in the comments!
This gives me flashbacks to elementary school: I was that petite blonde (wow, I need a second to form that mental image too) attempting to keep up with the boys in my jean skirt. Because obviously the best way to get a guy’s attention is to challenge them to kickball, while showing off your legs in a skirt… Here are a couple of “grown up” ways to wear the new jean skirt:
The jury is still out for me. What do you think – will you be flaunting your legs this Spring in a denim skirt?
My recent travels got me thinking about what to wear when you are setting off on an airplane. Comfort is obviously key, but that doesn’t have to mean sweatpants, leggings, or other articles of loungewear. These pieces are much better left at home. (Please, please leave these at home!) I wasn’t able to get any shots of my own travel attire, but I’ve recreated looks above inspired by my own.
The first outfit combines comfy trouser pants with a basic tank top. Comfy trousers look put together and modern without the feeling of being constricted during a long flight. I always get chilly on airplanes, so I recommend layering with a cardigan or a scarf, which can easily be removed and stowed upon arrival (if your destination happens to be tropical or warm like mine.) Another unfortunate effect of flying for me is that my feet swell, so I typically go with sandals to allow for this unlucky expansion.
The second outfit I love for travel is designed around the very breezy and trendy maxi skirt. Pair a cotton maxi skirt with a boxy sweater and a scarf for optimal comfort. This will look wrinkle-free and chic throughout the trip. I added a fun floral corset top underneath for a totally new outfit upon arrival. For both travel looks, I did minimal jewelry because airport security is so strict now, and it would be hell taking off an arm party at every security check-point. I also added a big, roomy satchel where you can store your magazines, books, iPod, etc. for the flight. Let me know what your go-to travel style is in the comments. And stay tuned for some shots from my trip to St. Thomas!
First let me explain that I had to add the “Round 1” because items on my wish list are constantly changing, getting crossed off, being added, etc. so it just wouldn’t be right to pretend it is finalized. So here they are: the pieces that I am coveting right this very minute. (Because in another minute, I may change my mind or want more… What can I say, I’m a girl)
My mind is possessed with thoughts of sunshine due to my upcoming Spring Break. Unfortunately, I have an unusually small head (believe me, strangers have pointed this out), so sunglasses are a difficult accessory for me. That said, here are some pairs that I would add to my collection if my head and my wallet would allow it…
If there was a thought bubble above my head, you might notice that at any moment throughout the day I am thinking about fashion… well that and food. But who could blame me, really? So welcome to my creative outlet for these thoughts: my fashion blog! On these pages, I will share my own personal style, fashion inspirations, current closet cravings, and anything else I find post-worthy (it’s my blog, so deal with it!)
The title for my blog comes from a quote spoken by the stunning Hollywood icon, Audrey Hepburn. She said,
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything else is going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.”
Her words are as elegant as her timeless style. I strive to invoke this ideology and the poise of Audrey in my daily life. So please…
