Spring is in full swing, the sun is out, clear skies ahead and today I’m sharing with you 3 reasons why you need to invest in the must have accessory this season. Showcasing my rancher hat, I’m explaining to you why you need this hat in your closet now.
1: Functionality: Hats are made to cover the face from any sun exposure. This hat does just that. With a wider brim and all around circumference, this hat keeps my face safe from those harsh sun-rays keeping my skin protected on days or activities where having the sun shining on your face can be annoying. The family and I recently went strawberry picking and this hat was such help with keeping the sun out of my eyes and face. If you are looking to protect your face from the sun the most fashionable way possible, this hat does just that!
2: Versatility: You can wear this daily, with so many different outfit options, making it versatile to wear with jeans one day, then a dress the next. The material is lightweight making the hat breathable for any weather condition. I usually don’t like to wear baseball caps because of the heat and sweat that can build up from it, but this is different. We were out in the sun for 1 hour, and I didn’t feel heated or uncomfortable. I can see this hat being a great option for trips to the park, walking around town, amusement parks, or a trip to the beach.
3: Chic and fashionable: You can’t have a great hat without some style now! This hat is fashionable with its rustic farmer feel to it, but still keeps to the classics by adding a black trim around. A hat like this can complete an outfit to look polished and fashionable. These hats have been trending all around, a great one to have that’ll take you right along into summer. I knew we were going to be stepping in mud for strawberry picking, so I decided to dress simple and casual. By adding this hat, my outfit went from normal to outstandingly fashionable. This will definitely be on rotate for the rest of the spring season and well into summer. Keep your eye out for one that suits you style; keeping you stylish and chic and on trend, you won’t regret it!
Happy Monday all! Today I’m showing you how to take a daily spring romper from day to night. This one-piece ensemble can easily give you two different looks, one during the day, and one at night. Rompers are known for their easiness, casual look, and daytime feel. I’m taking this simple little romper, and turning it into a fun, flirty nighttime outfit in two easy steps.
Step one: Dress it up by adding a simple blazer. This white linen blazer is springtime appropriate. The white color keeps things light, while the linen fabric is suitable for the warmer weather. Blazers don’t always have to be black. During the spring/summer seasons, retailers usually offer colored blazers, giving consumers something different, and weather appropriate for the season. Using a white blazer for this look, gives it a sophisticated feel from the cut of the jacket and the white makes it pop, giving the contrasting blue a light and airy feel.
Step two: Add a waist belt. I find that adding a belt to any look instantly makes it more formal, creating a more polished look. Here, I chose I tan colored waist belt, which helps pull the entire look together. Sometimes when I feel like I want to give my waistline more definition, I like to add something that’ll cinch in at the waistline. I like to switch between wearing it over all pieces, or just over the romper.
That's it! It’s as easy as that! Getting the most out of one look takes the simple steps by adding an overcoat/blazer, or a belt. Rompers don’t have to only be a daytime casual look anymore. With a little bit of added detail and choosing the right pieces for your outfit, the overall look can change from day to night in an instant!
Gearing up for Target’s new collaboration with fashion brand Marimekko, I thought it would be appropriate to bring out a piece I snatched up last year from Target’s collaboration with prepster brand Lilly Pulitzer. Known to dress elites such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and many socialites, the Lilly Pulitzer look consists of a Palm Beach feeling, bright colors, and a girly prep style. I wouldn’t call myself a diehard fan of all the styles this brand represents, but I do like it enough for me to be intrigued when I found out they were collaborating with Target to offer their designs at Target prices!
If you aren’t aware of the mayhem and excitement that goes on while Target has these collaborations, these are big events for fashion junkies like myself, who all want a bit of that ‘premium price’ fashion at more affordable prices. The day the collection was made available, I leisurely went into my local Target store in hopes to find a few cute dress pieces, but everything was sold out by the time I got there. Luckily I was able to find one of the dresses I had wanted hiding amongst some other clothes that was placed in the wrong section.
This coral dress is a perfect fit for spring moving towards summer. It moves well, fits well, and I love the print. It’s a fun, flirty dress that I can dress up or down, easy to accessorize, or makes a statement on its own by the great design. While I wouldn’t say it’s the best made top quality purchase, I was still happy to get a hold of one piece from this collaboration. Target’s fashion collaborations with fashion houses has had a reputation of being sold out quickly, causing chaos and a shopping frenzy. While I won’t be one to be lining up hours before the store opens to be the first to grab something from the collection, you know I’ll at least try during that day to stop by for the upcoming Marimekko for Target collection. From the look book I’ve seen, there are a few cute pieces I would love to have. You’ll have to check back and see if and what I was able to grab something from the collection. The Marimekko for Target collection is due to come out April 17. Will you be shopping this collection?
Today I’m sharing one of my greatest deals I found on a designer handbag during a black Friday sale. I’m talking about the Rockie Mini Pebbled leather duffel bag by Alexander Wang. I was attracted to this handbag because of its versatility and functionality, whilst giving me a fashion edge, making my outfits stylish and current. I had previously owned the larger version the “Rocco” but ended up selling it because of its bulkiness and heavy weight it had when carried on the shoulder.
When I saw they came out with a smaller ‘mini’ version I knew it would be able to fit my needs and wants as a mother with small children, but still keeping my style fresh and fashionable. Lets be honest, the use of hobo and top handle bags are far and few. Since becoming a mother, those once gorgeous delicate bags have taken the backseat from my wardrobe selection. A hands free handbag is the key nowadays, especially with a busy schedule that requires me to always be on the go.
I want something that has functionality, but yet fashionable at the same time! This mini rockie has done just that. The detachable shoulder strap allows me to carry it on the shoulder, cross body, and for those occasions where I want to be chic, in the crook of my arm! It is able to fit all my essentials, plus a snack or two for my kids. While this deep teal color was part of last season’s collection (hence why it probably went on sale) a classic black with silver hardware will give you that rocker look, and make you feel modern, edgy and chic!
