Trend Alert: Transparent Bags + Lavender

May 1, 2019

Spring is here and the trends are fun! I’m sure you’re starting to see transparent handbags all over the place. The trend is hot and Staud is making the IT bags right now. They’re fabulous and affordable! Well, way more affordable than most IT bags! I had been eyeing the bags for awhile, then when Staud came out with this pretty shiny garnet shade, I had to have it!

Wardrobe Building – Part 1 & 2 – Silhouette & Color

January 27, 2019

For 2019 I’m excited to do a series of blog posts about how to build a wardrobe, starting from the very beginning! I’ve come up with a method, though nothing in this process is actually created by me, certainly not from scratch.  It’s more of  a putting together of things I’ve learned along the way, from my fashion classes in college, to helping friends shop. to style blogging, to creating my own wardrobe one piece at a time. I’m really excited about this and hope you find it helpful!

5 Fall Trends You Can Definitely Rock Over 40!

October 30, 2018

Fall is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier!  I love fall weather, fall food, fall holidays, and fall clothing, including this fall’s style’s trends! I thought it was time to do a little review of some of my biggest style trends this fall. Sure, as more mature women, we’re seldom chasing trends like our younger counterparts, but we also like to look up-to-date, relevant, and just plain have some fun with fashion!  Here are few trends that you can absolutely ROCK in midlife and beyond!

Animal Print

Animal print is HUGE this fall!  Though leopard has been a classic for awhile, this fall the trend is extra popular!  Whether it’s classic leopard, colored leopard, zebra, or snakeskin, you can’t go wrong letting your queen of the jungle out to play right now!  Be sure to wear this trend in the way that works best for you. Pick a more subtle print or a wild one; wear one animal print piece, or go animal print crazy! Usually I prefer to use animal print in small doses, like accenting an outfit with a leopard belt, bag or a pair of shoes.  However, with leopard absolutely everywhere this season, I gave in and got a leopard tunic length button front shirt that I admit to just loving and wearing all the time!
