Three Sexy Summer Looks From GUESS

June 18, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


If you haven’t heard, GUESS is celebrating 30 sexy years of innovative designs, pride, and success with the release of a limited-edition women’s capsule collection in stores and online.

I was asked by GUESS to put together a couple of summer looks with some of my favorite pieces. The summer line is amazing, and I immediately gravitated toward the animal-print jeans, accessories, and heels. They scream sexy and fun, which to me is what GUESS is all about. Check out some of my looks—just perfect for your summer … day or night!

For my first look I chose the funky animal-print skinny jeans, a white tank, blue heels, a classic quilted chain bag, and a gold bracelet.  I went with these pieces because they’re easy to transition between seasons and versatile enough to mix and match with our basic pieces (even for work).

Brittney Ankle Skinny Jeans—Zebra Overdrive

Alyssa Sleeveless Tank

Mipolia Pumps

Wide Fringe Bracelet

Quilted Leather Mini Bag

I’m a big believer in buying pieces that are on trend but not overly trendy, because I like to get the most out of every selection. So for my second choice I once again went with a day-to-night outfit composed of a flirty dress, a denim jacket, platform heels, and a classic boyfriend watch (for a masculine feel), and I once again opted for the classic quilted chain bag.  Notice that the pieces in both these outfits can be swapped out and worn in different ways (and, because a woman can never have too many shoes, I chose a different pair!).  Check it out below!

 Kaitlyn Dress

Denim Cropped Jacket

Edee 2 High-Heel Sandals

Rose-Gold Watch

Quilted Leather Mini Bag

Brittney Ankle Skinny Jeans—Zebra Overdrive

Alyssa Sleeveless Tank

Quilted Leather Mini Bag

Rose-Gold Watch

Casta Jelly Sandal

My Old Navy Summer Swim Style

June 14, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


Old Navy is a long time favorite of mine for its affordable fashions for all seasons…and I’m like a kid in a candy store whenever they run any of their sales… especially during the summer! Starting now, Old Navy has incredible summer deals going on now from June 14 through June 27, their always cute and flattering swimsuit styles starting at only $10!

Not only do I live in Florida but I have kids that love to go to the beach, so stocking up swimsuits and summer clothes is a special OldNavy outing for the whole family.  In fact, swimsuits are often incorporated into my attire and Old Navy has a ton of options that I regularly mix and match with outfits. And, with my Fourth of July BBQ around the corner, the Old Navy sale is perfectly timed! Check out some of my favorites below!

 
My top two Old Navy bathing suits  are sexy with the perfect amount of coverage (a mother must-have!). BONUS: If you have a day trip planned and don’t want to pack a change of clothes, the bathing suits can easily be paired with Old Navy shorts or a skirt and flip flops (I buy Old Navy flip flops by the bulk every year).

I also adore these two sexy bathing suits, particularly because they enable you to swap out the pieces with one another giving you an entirely different look.

For my boys I wanted to highlight the green and black board shorts.  Being a frugal mama I tend to only buy solid colored shorts so I can pair them with a variety of Old Navy tees.

Old Navy brings fashion fun to the whole family: from trendy threads to trusty basics, for newborns through adults, all at prices that are oh-so-right.

How To Stand Out From The Crowd

Disclosure: This is a sponsored guest post

Having a stylish and original wardrobe can help you to turn heads and to stand out from the crowd. Whether it is in the office, on a night out or relaxing at home, it is important to look your best and have clothes that you are comfortable in. Finding and choosing the right wardrobe can be hard though, as there are so many styles and looks to choose from.

High-Quality Clothing

As well as looking sharp, you also want your clothes to feel comfortable and last a long time too. Cheap, poorly designed clothing will deteriorate quickly and will not look good. This is why it is important to invest in some higher quality clothing pieces.

Although high-quality clothing may cost more, it will last you a lifetime and look great too. Choosing brands that you have heard of and know are good quality will help you to have a wardrobe that will last and remain stylish too.

Bold Designs

Being bold is what will make you stand out from the crowd. Wearing bold colours with fresh, original artwork makes a statement. Wearing clothing like this is sure to turn heads.

Whether it is women’s clothing or men’s, you can find loads of great clothing and accessories to complement each other and give you a new look. One brand that has some brilliant, high-quality designs for both men and women is Firetrap.

Over the last 20 years Firetrap has been creating bold and stylish clothes which have been a huge success all around the world. They offer bright, stylish t-shirts with interesting designs, beautiful and unique dresses, well-designed jeans and cool accessories. They are a brand that has a distinctive style and their impressive range will give you a sharp and stylish look.

Seasonal Styles

Another important aspect of fashion is keeping up to date with the seasonal styles. As the weather changes you should change your look so that you are not only practically prepared and warm enough, but so that you also have a stylish look.

As the summer approaches you need to ensure that you have the wardrobe to embrace this time for getting out of the house and soaking up the sun. This summer bright bold colors, stylish shirts, shorts, sandals and sunglasses – will help you get that stylish summer look!

Kohl’s Spring Trends Video Shoot

June 8, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

A few months ago I was flown out to NY by Glam for an amazing opportunity to participate in a video shoot for Kohl’s spring trends. Not only am I a huge fan of Kohl’s, but just as fun I got to meet Glam’s fashion director Nola (in the middle) and a lot of other fab bloggers that were also invited (see below).  The video of this experience is now up on Kohls.com (click on picture below to watch video).

I’m not going to lie I was soooo nervous throughout the entire process. I’m used to sitting behind a computer and not in front of a camera!  But I have to admit the production staff and Glam team were amazing and it was an experience that I will never forget.

For my part, I was selected to highlight Kohl’s tropical trend theme and tried on tons of clothes from the likes of ELLE, Jennifer Lopez Collection and LC Lauren Conrad.

 

The first outfit I picked was a fun and flirty dress with stripes by ELLE (I love stripes!), but because I also wanted it to have a transitional look, I paired it with a cardigan from the Jennifer Lopez Collection, a ELLE  belt to accentuate my waist and wedges also from ELLE.

For the second outfit I wanted an easy day-to-night look, so I went with a basic blazer by LC Lauren Conrad, a pretty floral dress from Simply Vera Vera Wang and gold wedges (also seen here) from the Jennifer Lopez Collection.  I dressed up the whole look with a glam necklace by Simply Vera Vera Wang.

 

 

 

Celebrating 30 Sexy Years of GUESS

June 6, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Guess is celebrating 30 sexy years of innovative designs, pride, and success with the release of a limited-edition women’s capsule collection launching in stores and online on April 20. The collection captures the brand’s industry-changing creations from the past 30 years, combining original styling and vintage washes with modern influences.

While the iconic ads made a star of Claudia Schiffer and a host of other models, my personal style was most influenced by Drew Barrymore’s participation.  I was in high school when Drew was featured and my bedroom walls were covered from corner to corner with her Guess ads torn from the pages of every magazine I could get my hands on. Without doubt, the black-and-white images captured her unbridled free spirit and raw, sexual rebelliousness.  It also sparked my own imagination, and to this day my fashion sense still leans toward an edgy, boho style full of denim. The only downside is that I even cut my hair short and spiky to look just like Drew, which was not a good look for me!

The new Guess collection drew inspiration from iconic pieces from the Guess archives and updated them with a modern twist. High-waisted denim cigarette pants with bold daisies, animal prints, vintage tie-waist button-down tops, and a delicate lace bustier, which Claudia made famous in her first Guess campaign. As part of the 30th Anniversary celebration, Guess is providing customers a unique and special experience, with the launch of a micro site, www.Guess1981.com, which will go live on April 5. The Guess 30th Anniversary site will be an interactive platform for customers to preview the new campaign while connecting with their favorite, must-have pieces. Fans can also view a calendar of Guess’ 30th Anniversary special events happening throughout 2012. Check out some of my favorites below and tell me who your favorite Guess model was.
