February 28th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile Round-Up: Top 4 Spring Shoe Trends

The weather is warming up and stores are switching over to their spring and summer lines. This year, it’s all about fun, bold, and quirky pieces, including shoes. Are you more of a lace-up girl or a funky flatform one? These trends may not be entirely new, but they have been reinvented for 2017. Put a little ‘spring’ in your step and take a look at this year’s top spring shoe trends.

 

All Wrapped Up

Lace-up sandals and heels will be everywhere this season and are such a fun alternative to a traditional flat or heel.

 

The Flatform

Give your feet a break while keeping the boost of a heel. The flatform shoe is back and better than ever.

 

Kitten Heels

The return of this trend may garner mixed reactions. From sandals to booties, stilettos to block, the ’80s kitten heel is back and will either be loved or hated.

 

Slides, Slippers, and Sandals

February 22nd, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada Round-Up: 6 Chic Ways to Wear Yellow

Yellow has been making a big appearance in bloggers’ wardrobes. It’s a color linked with optimism and positive energy, so it only seems natural that we would gravitate toward wearing it more around spring! Embrace this playful color with one piece of clothing, or build your entire ensemble around it. Venture into different shades—it’s a more versatile hue than you make think!

Here are six fail-proof ways to wear yellow that’ll have you turning heads in no time.

 
1.

For those who are shy about wearing this bright hue, ease into it by picking pieces in a darker shade. It doesn’t take much for a simple yellow skirt to pack a punch!

 

2.

P2 - Here's The Skinny

One way to effortlessly wear yellow is by choosing a dress with intricate features like lace, ruffles, or statement sleeves (or all three)! 

 

3.

P3 - La Georgienne

Add a dose of style to your office wardrobe by pairing yellow pieces with neutral colors. Take a fashion cue from La Georgienne and liven up your work attire with mustard-colored pants.  

 

4.

P4 - Mia Mia Mine

Want to incorporate yellow into your outfit, but don’t want it to be too distracting? Drape a biker jacket over a yellow top, and style it with either neutral bottoms or a pair of blue jeans.

 

5.

P5 - Micah Gianneli

If you ask me, the only thing that can top Coldplay’s “Yellow” is Micah Gianelli’s bold fashion statement of going full-on yellow. If the monochromatic combination is too overpowering for you, wear a black belt and black shoes to break up the look. 

 

6.

P6 - Style Me Grasie

There’s something about a bright coat that says you’re not afraid to go against the grain. Reach for one the next time it’s a little chilly out and you’ll really stand out.

You know the girls—the ones that throw on the first t-shirt they see before running out the door, yet somehow still look great? The girls who have perfected the effortless look that we covet but have a little trouble recreating ourselves?

The secret is to keep it simple and build your style around your favorite wardrobe staples. If you’re wondering where to start, below are my five essential pieces to add to your wardrobe for perfect “cool-girl” style.

 

The White Tee

How many times have you stared into a full closet and thought “I have nothing to wear”? Easy to wear and to style, a comfy white tee is the perfect solution to that wardrobe dilemma.

 

The Leather Jacket

Ankle boots are my go-to shoe, and for good reason! They will instantly up your cool factor and pair effortlessly with any type of outfit.
