January 18th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Sweater and Skirt Outfits to Try This Season

A sweater and skirt pairing makes for an easy, pulled-together outfit. It’s a classic combination with more versatility than you may think; just change up the sweater thickness or the skirt style for a different look. With a little help from our favorite bloggers, we’ve curated six sweater and skirt combinations and some handy style tips that you need to try ASAP!

 

sweater with a skirt

If you’ve ever needed a reason to pull out your favorite tulle skirt, look no further! Play up the feminine factor of a tulle skirt with a thick turtleneck sweater for a sophisticated and flirty look that isn’t too over-the-top.

 

P2 - Le Happy

Pleated midi skirts aren’t just for spring. There’s something about combining them with chunky knit sweaters that is so cozy and chic for winter!

 

P3 - Like the Yogurt

Hello, 50 shades of grey! When in doubt, choose a neutral color scheme and stick with it. Embrace the beauty of monotone by choosing layers that give dimension to your outfit. Throw on an oversized pullover sweater, a thick scarf and a draped skirt for style and comfort.

 

P4 - One Small Blonde

Trying to tone down a fringe skirt? Recreate this outfit by styling a long, fringe skirt with a more subdued knit in a frosty color.

 

P5 - Sincerely Jules

A super easy way to style a colorblock sweater is by choosing a miniskirt that matches ones of the shades in it. This creates a cohesive combination that doesn’t distract from the beauty of the sweater.

 

P6 - Something Navy

Can you “knot”? Pull off this look by tucking a thin, slouchy sweater into a knotted skirt. This is a great way to accentuate your curves!

January 12th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile 5 Celebrity Books Worth Reading

Celebrities are often put on a pedestal and looked to for inspiration and advice. It may be arguable whether celebs are worth this admiration—they are real people, just like you and me!—but there are the special few who have been able to take their life experiences to heart and share with us their wisdom. Some share health advice, some lifestyle or diet advice, and other share stories and experiences to connect with their fans.

Take a look at my top five celebrity books released in 2016 that are worth the purchase!

 

The Longevity Book

1. The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time  Cameron Diaz
Just by looking at Cameron, it’s all too obvious how well she takes care of her body. It turns out that Cameron knows how to take care of her mind too. Cameron’s book is full of information based on not only her personal experience, but on science and nutrition, making it practical, educational, and empowering. We want to give an honorable mention to The Body Book too, released just a bit earlier!

 

Why Not Me

2. Why Not Me?  Mindy Kaling
Mindy Kaling is so many things: actress, writer, producer, director and inspiration to many young girls and women. In this collection of personal essays, Mindy writes about her experiences and lessons in life, love, and career without a filter. Mindy is able to connect with the every-woman and by the end of each book, you’ll feel like you just made a new best friend. Also check out Mindy’s previous book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? for more great Mindy stories.

 

Year of Yes

3. Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person – Shonda Rhimes
Shonda Rhimes is one of the smartest and hardest working women in Hollywood. In her book, Shonda confronts her introverted self and spends a year saying “yes!” In sharing her journey, Shonda will inspire you to live your life to the fullest, how you want to, doing what will make you happy.

 

Wildflower

4. Wildflower  Drew Barrymore
Wildflower isn’t Drew’s first foray into writing, but it’s certainly her best effort to date. It tells the stories, past and present, of this former wild child star turned America’s girl next door. Drew uses humor and honesty to share stories of her past with perspective from the present.

 

celebrity books

5. Scrappy Little Nobody  Anna Kendrick
Anna is like your best friend—she says what you’re thinking, when you’re thinking it, with boldness and humor. Sometimes I wonder how she is able to get inside my brain and read my exact thoughts! She has proclaimed herself as awkward, weird, and unusual, and her essays will make you feel a thousand times better about the weirdness you never knew you shared with one of Hollywood’s brightest stars.
