Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I bought this white blazer from Tobi on a whim and I always find a different outfit to wear it with.  This time I paired with my new pink skirt.   I spotted this little pink skater skirt for only $5 and knew I wanted to wear it with my white blazer and a cropped top I bought at Ross a few months ago.  I’ve been looking for a colored bottom to wear the crop top with for some time but because it’s a crop top I wanted something higher at the waist and this skirt is perfect!  Check the three different ways I’ve worn my white blazer below.

What I’m Wearing:

White Blazer – $39 from Tobi.com (also seen here & here)

Cropped Top – $7.99 from Ross

Pink Skater Skirt $5 from Papaya

Caged Heels – $30 from a local boutique in Tampa

Clutch (also seen here) c/o meet mark

Hollywood Style Icon Beach Inspiration

May 24, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

In this day and age magazine and online media publications constantly use stick thin women as their cover girls, yet just 50 years ago fabulous Hollywood superstars were gracing our magazine covers with womanly hips and curvy hourglass figures.

Each year many women panic over their body image especially when going on holiday so why not take a trip down memory lane to the days of Monroe, when being curvy was sexy and use our beach inspiration looks for your summer holiday this year to make you feel good.

Marilyn Monroe has to be the No1 icon of our time as she is known for her size 14/16 curvy figure; today not many women over a size 6 are referred to as being a pin up!  Like many women, Marilyn’s weight fluctuated and when she was unhappy she ate more but to all men she was always a sex symbol no matter what her dress size was. Marilyn once made a statement which has become a memorable saying on the subject of weight: ““To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly.”

Monroe was well known for her blonde curls and ruby red lips and no matter where she went she always looked sensational – even on the beach in her costume and revealing beach outfits!

If there is a holiday coming up in your schedule then try pairing a beautiful white costume and these ballet pumps from Lotus Shoes which are similar style and colour to Marilyn’s, and make sure to do your hair and make-up to give you that extra confidence boost!

You would often find Monroe wearing bathing suits rather than two pieces as not only were they fashionable at the time but they are extremely flattering for the stomach making them a very desirable essential to take away on holiday.

Marilyn always had the skill to pull of amazing accessories on the beach like this red two piece, skirt styled bikini (which is slimming on the thighs) and a summary yellow shawl which looks beautiful draped around the neck!

Here she is sporting another slimming bathing suit in a metallic green colour and yet again her hair and make-up is perfectly done for that added confident and sex appeal on the beach.

There is no better feeling than wearing heels as they create the illusion of slimmer and longer legs and Marilyn often wore heeled sandals or wedges to the beach to create this exact illusion.

Find a similar pair of heeled sandals to Marilyn from the selection of Lotus Sandals as these will make the perfect addition to any beach look!

Dream Believe Achieve

May 20, 2013 by

When summer rolls around down here in Florida it comes with inhuman heat and humidity, which only wreaks havoc on my hair (even after an hour in front of a hairdryer I still end up with frizzy hair)!  So lately I’ve been air drying to camouflage the frizz and although I am not 100 percent sold on it, it’s easy to do. I use the hanna thermal protectant oil and Sally Hershberger Shagg Spray that I found for only $2.99 at Ross to get a piece-y look and it works great.  Along with the big hair that I to call “beachy waves” I like to keep my outfits easy and comfy as well.  I tend to keep my focus on tops because bottoms always consist of cut off shorts, a cotton mini or rolled up jeans.  Every year I get on a new kick: last year I was all about asymmetrical tanks and this year it’s graphic tees.   I got this one from Shopbop and although a little bit more than I usually pay for tee, it’s totally worth it!  It’s got a roomy fit which is perfect for summer; the length makes it look like a perfectly worn-in mens tee and my favorite part is the length of the sleeves – its just long enought to be able to give it a nice roll if I’m in the mood too.

What I’m Wearing:

Sincerely Jules Graphic Tee c/o Shopbop

White Skinny Jeans $14.99 at Marshall’s

Pointy Toe Pumps (also seen here) – $25.50 from Charlotte Russe

Necklace & Bracelet c/o Twisted Silver

Bag c/o meet mark

Chambray Top – $9 at Walmart
