OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve had today (that is, if your day has been as nice as mine has!). This is my last week of undergrad (well, college in general actually because I am not going to grad school!), and I am starting to feel a little sad about leaving this wonderful place I have called home for the past four years.  With graduation approaching this Friday and Saturday, it is all getting to be really real lately.  I guess I better get ready though, because whether I want it to or not, it’s still coming! I have been on the job hunt for quite some time, but I have really been cracking down lately.  While I would love love love to work in fashion (as you all know!) I am starting to really open myself up to other options as well, just to get my foot in the door somewhere, network with all kinds of people (you never know who they know!), and get some real experience under my belt.  So, I’m hoping something comes up soon, but until then I will just have to keep trying and keeping a positive attitude – eventually I have to get a job, right?! But, if any of you know anyone who is hiring or have any suggestions/ideas as far as a job lead, I would love to hear from you! Please email me at kristen.booth06@gmail.com with any comments or suggestions!

But, now that I just rambled on forever (we’re not getting any younger here, Kristen!)… Let’s finally get to today’s outfit of the day! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect outfit for a fun spring or summer day.  I am loving these lace/crochet shorts – I really need to get a pair! And these colors are just so fun and summery… They make me so excited for pool days and barbecues! So, here is this week’s Trendy Tuesday outfit: Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday   Top: Alexander Terekhov, $749; Shorts: Alice + Olivia, $275; Shoes: Corso Cosmo, $69; Necklace: Stephan & Co., $24; Bracelets: kate spade new york, $48 (turquoise) Valentino, $545 (gold) Bauble Bar, $66 $34 (coral) On Sale Now!; Earrings: Stella & Dot, $24; Nail Polish: OPI, $8.99 – Bubble Bath (neutral) and Where Did Suzi’s Man Go? (Coral)

What do you guys think? Is that fun or what?! I don’t know about you, but all of these items (well except the nail polish… I already have those two and love them for the summertime!) are definitely going on my wishlist of summer items! Let me know what you think of this outfit and I would love any suggestions you may have for me! I hope y’all are having a great week so far!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Good morning and happy Tuesday, beauties! I hope you are all having a great week so far, and you’re not stuck in any more snow! I don’t know about you, but I am so over all of this snow… Not only is it a pain in the butt, but it is really starting to take a toll on my skin and hair (more on that later, though…)!

But, enough complaining! Today we have a phenomenal little ensemble for this week’s Trendy Tuesday.  This fun dress can be dressed up for a day of work or dressed down for a day of running around and being productive! Either way, this dress is absolutely fabulous and is sure to turn the heads of everyone you run into.

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday

 

Dress: MICHAEL by Michael Kors, $175; Blazer: H&M, $41; Shoes: Valentino, $1,075; Bag: Prada, $2,330; Bracelet: C. Wonder, $45; Ring: David Yurman, $900; Earrings: Kenneth Cole, $9.

Is this outfit fabulous or what?! I know that I, personally, would kill for this outfit (or really just any part of it!), but unfortunately for me, none of these items are really in my budget at the moment. Sad day for Kristen… But, with graduation around the corner, it is only a matter of time before I have a job and can start working towards fun things that I’ll be able to splurge on!

I hope you ladies have a wonderful day and stay warm in the midst of the wintery tundra that has made its way back into our life. Stay strong though, it’s almost over!

How To Look Hot All Day And All Night

Beat The Heat In These Stylish And Refreshing Outfits That Look Good From Day To Night

As August is quickly approaching, we all know the scorching hot days we are already experiencing are only going to get worse.  While there are many styles that are extremely cute and flattering on almost everyone, such as the maxi dress and skirt, they are not always the best for keeping us cool… And let’s be honest, I know I cannot stand to be wearing clothes that make me hotter than necessary on the already excruciatingly hot days.  Not only is it super difficult to find outfits that keep you cooled off while maintaining your usual trendy look, but having to change into an outfit to go out in after spending a long day out in the heat, can sometimes be worse! How can this be solved you might ask? Well, here are just a few suggestions that can be worn all day long, day to night, and still have the normal, appropriate look for whatever time of day it is and whatever you are doing!

High Waisted Shorts – Necessary Clothing $24.99

High Waisted Shorts - Necessary Clothing

 

Daytime:  Pair these awesome shorts with a blouse or nice top and a pair of flats or dressy sandals and you have the perfect outfit for a relaxing and comfortable day at the office!

After The Sun Sets:  Swap out that blouse for either a more casual tank or a crop top and change out of your flats and into a pair of nude or cream colored wedges and you will have a sexy outfit for your nighttime extravaganzas!

Crochet Bathing Suit – 6 Shore Road $138

Black Crochet Bathing Suit - 6 Shore Road

 

Daytime:  Wear this super sexy suit for a day on the beach with friends or when you’re just laying out, catching some rays at the pool.  Where ever you are, you are sure to turn the heads of everyone around with this chic little number on.

After The Sun Sets:  Be sure to pack a maxi skirt, a pair of jeans, or some high wasted shorts in your beach bag to throw on over your suit for your evening activities.  Not only is this piece an extremely flattering bathing suit, but it is also a stunning top.  Add a pair of heels or wedges and you will surely be turning everyone’s head!

White Jeans –Tory Burch (Nordstrom) $185

White Jeans - Tory Burch At Nordstrom

Daytime:  Pair these super cute white jeans with a bright colored tank top (pastels look awesome, too!)  and a pair of flats or sandals for the perfect daytime outfit.  Cuff the bottom of the already cropped pants to make them a little shorter – it adds to the overall look and keeps you feeling a little cooler!

After The Sun Sets:  For your nighttime adventures, uncuff the pants and add a pair of wedges or heels with a darker color (navy or black are always a good option) tank top or crop top.  Add a bright colored chunky statement necklace for a night pop of color and you are sure to be ready for whatever comes your way that evening!

Crop Top – American Apparel $38

Crop Top - American Apparel

Daytime:  Pair this crop top with a pair of white shorts and a pair of comfy sandals or flip flops along with a long necklace, a watch and a cute pair of earrings and you will be set for the sunshine!

After The Sun Sets: In the evening, switch out of your shorts and put on white jeans or regular blue denim jeans with a pair of cute wedges and some bigger accent pieces of jewelry and you’ll be the focal point of the night.

Trousers (aka “Pajama Style Bottoms”) – Zara $59.90

Trousers/Pajama Style Bottoms - Zara  Daytime: Add a nice blouse or tank top along with a blazer and a pair of flats to these super cute trousers and you have an appropriate, comfortable, and super hot outfit for a summer day at work.

After The Sun Sets: Ditch the blazer, keep the tank top, and switch out the flats for either a pair of sexy heels or super cute wedges and you’re all ready for a round of drinks at happy hour after a long day in the office.

As you can see, the options for day to night summer outfits really are endless.  This is not even close to an all inclusive list, rather more of a starting point to get you headed in the right direction! I hope this is helpful to you in planning your outfits for the rest of the summer, and if you need and help or have any questions or comments please just let me know! :)

XOXO Kristen

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends In Fashion

It’s Never too Early to Start Shopping… Warm Weather and Sunshine are Just Around the Corner!

Spring has arrived and we all know what that means, green grass, blooming flowers, warmer weather, and the new clothes that highlight the latest trends in fashion.

Pastels (In particular, Mint)

If you have been to any clothing retailer in the recent past, you have probably Michael Kors "Selma Large" Leather Satchel seen the extensive presence of pastel everything – pants, tops, dresses, shoes, accessories and so much more!

Of all the pastel colors, mint is one of the most popular this season.  Pretty much anything you could imagine or want is probably available in mint.  While you can pastels - mint pants definitely find mint pants or tops (and they’re super cute I must say!), one way to add this fun and unique color into your wardrobe (a little more subtly) is through accessories.  By adding mint colored jewelry or a mint handbag, you can give your outfit a little flare.

For the more bold, go out there and rock those mint pants that you love and buy that super cute mint top that you’ve been eyeing at the store! Without a doubt, by including mint and other pastel colors into your wardrobe, you will definitely be looking chic and fashionable.

Lace

While it is definitely not a new trend in fashion, lace is a very big one this spring. This spring and summer women everywhere will be dressing in this fun and feminine fabric.

fashionable lace dresses

Whether its tops, skirts, shorts, or dresses, lace is the thing to be wearing this season.  Dress it up and wear it to work or to date night; or dress it down and wear it for a day around town. Whatever you decide to wear it for, you will look super cute at the same time as elegant and sophisticated!

trendy striped clothing Stripes

Be it horizontal, vertical, slanted, or zig-zag, stripes are another huge trend in fashion
this season.  By building up your collection of stripes within your wardrobe now, you will definitely feel ahead of the game when the sun starts shining and the temperature beings to rise.

Floral

A natural reminder and association of the spring and summer months, floral clothing are huge this season!  One of the most popular articles of clothing we are seeing in floral floral pants prints are jeans and other pants.  Be it more dull and darker colors that we saw in the  winter months, or the brighter more colorful prints we are seeing for the spring and summer, flowers are blooming everywhere! Paired with a darker shirt, these colorful poppy floral pants are extremely stylish and really cute!

While these are only the tip of the iceberg for the trends in fashion this season, these are certainly a few of the largest.  By just filling your wardrobe with a few of each of these fashionable items, you’re sure to have everyone talking about how cute you look!  Don’t put it off for too long, start preparing your closet now so you don’t miss out on the cutest items! Good luck shopping!

XOXO, Kristen
