It was hard to smile today as my heart is still heavy from the tragic events that played out on Monday. What was once solely known as such a historical and prestigious day will be tarnished with the senseless acts that took lives, injured so many and put an entire city in a state of panic. I hope that the perpetrators are found and brought to justice.
My heart goes out to those that were affected or have loved ones that were affected.
On this beautiful Monday my brain was working overtime. I randomly started thinking of the types of resources available to fashion bloggers and local forums that allow for opportunities to get fashion minded together regularly. I came up with a few ideas but the execution of these brilliant ideas is a challenge for me. I’d like to hear if you have groups or events in your neck of the woods that are dedicated to fashion or tell me the types of events/ activities that you would love to see offered in your community.
As always, thanks for reading. I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend. Xo
Chambrays have been around for eons but I always get excited when I see a great chambray. I love garments that are versatile and have endless styling possibilities. Not to mention they are comfortable as heck. If you didn’t know you better ask somebody!
Here are some of my favorite blogger styles that incorporate the chambray in their style. Fab job lovely ladies!
Be sure to check out Maybelline’s 2012 calendar. It’s packed with makeup inspiration. Each month unveils a super bold, sexy, and creative style. Shiny and glittery pouts, lux lashes and colorful blushes – are all ways to breathe new life into your daily makeup routine with the help of Maybelline. I’m taking notes on how to recreate these looks at home.
In the past I hadn’t been a fan of Hawaiian prints but this isn’t your normal Hawaiian garb. These styles have appeal because they are modern and fresh. The tunics and harem pants are items that you’d find in any collection but the island flare puts them in a league of their own. Bursts of color and clean lines make this collection sensational. I can definitely see myself wearing these anywhere hot and sunny.
I have to start by saying that I idolize and adore Gwen Stefani. She is a fashion pioneer, gutsy and demure. Her trademark glam rock style sets her apart from her peers. This hairstyle is another sensation out her fashion cupboard. I like that it’s whimsical and elegant at once. The high knot is appropriate for a night out or a day at work. It’s also simple to create and will continue to look great after a long day or night. You can also add hair pins or clips to amplify the style.
It’s hard to let some things go. Like my shorts…Over the weekend the weather was pretty delightful so I wore shorts. When the weather is cooler they look great with a sweater and tights. It’s easy fashion that yields a lot of style. I would recommend wearing corduroy, leather, tweed, or wool shorts. Texture is everything. Also, make sure that your top isn’t longer than your shorts. You don’t want it to seem like you’re not wearing any bottoms.
