Flounce With Me

I am so happy that ruffles, florals, flounces and feminine dressing in general are making a comeback.  I want to bring back ladylike more formal dressing for day.  I think dressing modestly in beautiful clothes can be very empowering.  I wear clothes that I am excited to put on, that are lovely in fabrication, print […]

Crochet Love

This season I have spotted a few crochet items on the runways but whether crochet is in or out matters not to me as I am obsessed regardless.  In fact, I have amassed a pretty good sized crochet collection.  It all started with a random urge to check out a thrift store I had never […]

East Meets West

Lately there has been a huge Asian influenced trend and I am definitely on board.  I am especially enamored by this Loewe dress from the spring 2017 collection which seems to be sold out everywhere.  I also love this Gucci dress in porcelain print.  Kimono dresses such as this one, this one and this one […]

It’s a Wrap

The biggest trend this season is the ruffle wrap skirt.  I love this trend because in the summer, I don’t really want to wear jeans all the time due to the heat, and I don’t wear really short shorts either.  This leaves me with the options of Bermuda shorts (which rarely look good on me) […]

Jumping into Summer

If you’ve been following me you may have noticed my affinity to gingham, stripes and ruffles.  So imagine my delight when I found this amazing jumpsuit with all three combined!  It was love at first sight, and for under a hundred dollars I couldn’t pass it up.  This MSGM one is currently several times as […]

Hello Yellow!

A color trend that is big this season besides millennial pink is yellow.   I wore this vintage 1950’s dress I bought a few years back to church the other day.  I love the design details at the bust and the ruched statement sleeves which are also trending this season. I also love this Diane […]

Stripes and Shirtdresses

A huge trend this season is the shirtdress, especially in striped printed cotton.  I have added a few shirtdresses to my spring and summer wardrobe because they are so versatile and can be dressed up or down.  They are also lightweight, and thus cool to wear on a hot summer day.  I love striped patterns […]

Mixing Prints with Gingham

The standout print it appears this season is gingham.  It is the quintessential summer fabric, which I am thrilled to wear because it can mix well with so many other prints.  I added a few gingham items to my wardrobe this spring including this skirt and this skirt from Zara.  I have been wearing them […]

Fancy Pants

Lately I have been wearing a lot of alternatives to basic jeans.  There are so many non denim options available now that are so fun and fresh for spring and summer.  Also instead of plain slacks, pants with a unique design detail or print seem to elevate an outfit to another level.  It is almost […]

DIY Lengthen a dress by adding trim

I just wanted to show you a very quick and easy way to lengthen a dress while adding a little flair to the hem.  I bought this dress from Anthropologie because I loved the wrap design and lightweight cotton shirting fabric for Spring and Summer.  However, it was way to short for comfort on my […]
