Celebrity Copycat: Taylor Swift’s Look for Less!

Taylor Swift’s outfit is perfection!  She took two basic pieces and gave them a stylish twist by adding high heeled oxfords and a bright red satchel.  A effortless look that can be recreated in lots of different ways.  You can tone it done by swapping out the plaid top and instead use a white one or your favorite tee and if you want to dress it up simply wear a tank top and some bold gold jewelry.  Check out the looks below

Celebrity Copycat: Jamie Chung’s Coachella Look for Less!

I was looking through all the amazing Coachella pics on Instagram before the social site went down on last Saturday.  There were SO many amazing outftits but I loved Jamie Chung’s so much that I decided to do a copycat.  I like that it can be worn by normal gals like me.  A simple white dress, worn in booties, fab sunglasses – it’s the perfect boho outfit for spring and summer – love it!

Must Have Spring Jackets

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

You’ve spent all winter under your warm winter jacket, but now the spring has begun if you still wear the same jacket you’ll spend most of the time feeling too hot whenever you have it on, but too cold if you take it off.

It’s time to get it dry cleaned, pack it away and replace it with a spring jacket – one of the most useful items of clothing around for these months when it can be sunny and warm one moment, but change in an instant to a chill breeze that you can’t seem to get escape from.

A spring coat can also be a great way to state your own particular style. There are many different designs and materials available, meaning that you can dress any outfit up or down with a spring jacket.

Raincoat

Available in a rainbow of colours, ranging from neutrals through to neons, the raincoat is a really versatile jacket for springtime. You can be as conservative or as loud as you like through the raincoat you choose to wear; and, of course, it’s an eminently practical way to stay dry when you’re out and about. Lightweight and easy to fold away, a raincoat can see you through most of the year, not just the spring.

Utility Jacket

Utility coats, such as military-style jackets or motorbike jackets continue to be as popular as ever this spring. They come in a huge variety of styles and can be great for finishing off a wide range of outfits. You can pair them with jeans or a little dress, or even shorts – they go with almost anything. Check out the Superdry Aztec Jacket - an army jacket with additional features like Aztec stitching on the front and back, as well as inside the cuffs.

Most utility jackets come in neutral shades, or greens and greys; add something feminine to your outfit so that you still look girly. Don’t think utility means scruffy – you can find a whole range of styles, from tailored to distressed.

Blazer

Spring Outfits

A blazer is an essential item in a girl’s wardrobe. It’s something that can be worn to work but then still look great for a night on the town. If you want to make a blazer feel less formal, you can always opt to layer it with a hoodie to give a casual overall look. Moto jackets are a twist on the classic blazer, and can work as well with a dress as with a pair of jeans.

Classic trench

You can’t go wrong with a trench coat. For a start, they come in a huge range of colours, but for all-round versatility it’s probably best to stick to a neutral tone. The length of a trench coat gives you a streamlined look regardless of what you choose to wear underneath it. It’s perfect for going to work, but can also look great with your weekend jeans and t-shirt.

It won’t be long before the summer heat means we won’t even consider taking a jacket out with us, but until then, it’s best to be prepared with a stylish spring jacket or two in your wardrobe.

As a mom of five boys it’s essential for me to take some time out for myself, which is why I was SO excited to try out Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash.  Looking good and feeling should go hand in hand and there’s nothing like a brand new body wash to leave you feeling fresh and ready to start your day.  My skin tends to get dry and I stay away from harsh bars of soaps, so using body washes is ideal for me. I was pleasantly surprised with how well the  Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash foamed up and the scent is not over powering yet strong enough to linger and it leave your skin silky smooth!  

It’s definitely a nice addition to my daily bath essentials and it doesn’t hurt that the color Emerald Green (last years pantone trend) is just gorgeous!  I’ve always loved emerald green and spring is the perfect time to wear it!  It can easily make its way into any outfit via a great bold accessory, shoes or a pretty midi skirt.  Either way it’s a great color that can be worn year round and easy to partner up with this years pantone trend, radiant orchid.  Check out some looks featuring the pretty shade of green below.

An emerald green midi skirt (a huge spring trend) will give your spring outfit a pop of of the luscious color.  Pair with a white blazer and gold accessories for a crisp clean feel.

Spring Midi Skirts

Looking to sport the emerald green in more than one outfit?  Then try a jacket that has pops of green!  Pair it with jeans and a tee, over a little black dress or go monochromatic with all white (another color I love for warmer temps).

Amazing how one body wash can inspire so much!

The Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash wraps your skin in vibrant scents and hydrating lather, leaving it revitalized and delicately scented. Try the new  Caress® Emerald Rush™ Fresh Collection Body Wash and revitalize your skin like never before.

I am a total ligloss/lip stick/lip balm addict!  My purse, makeup bag, nightstand and even my baby bag always has a stash ready for me to use at any moments notice. And when I dont have them and  I need them I panic!  It doesnt even necessarily have to be an actual lip product…I’ve been known to layer a little eye shadw over a lip balm, some light foundation and lipgloss for the perfect nude lip…the possibilities are endless and I’m always on the lookout for any new ways to apply some color and products to add to my collection.  One brand that I’ve used and always trust is Burt’s Bees (I always grab a tube of their shimmer lip balm at the check out counter at my local pharmacy or super center). The price point is amazing considering the quality and varity of natural eco friendly products  that they provide and since I’m a sucker for their always adorable packaging.

Celebrity make-up artist Katey Denno made her transition from traditional make-up products to organic with Burt’s Bees and equally fell in love with their 100% natural products and is now sharing her amazing tips and info that she’s picked up in the always expanding green beauty market.  She’s now teamed up the equally fabulous Burt’s Bees and is sharing her exclusive lip tips and tricks that are both naturally creative and glamorous.  I love how she incorporates the layering of products to achieve a natural lip color that’s perfect for the upcoming warmer weather (click here to use the perfect lip shade finder).

A Touch of Summer in The Spring

April 10, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The weather is starting to  feel what most people would consider a normal summer day but for Floridians its still spring becuase it’s still not inhumanely hot.  Most days it’s in the low 80s and a cold front pops up maybe twice a month bringing the weather down to normal spring temps but it doesn’t really matter down here.  Once March rolls aorund the daisy dukes come out in full force and the wife beaters are sold by the dozen (I’m not kidding about the wife beaters – I tried to buy my teenager a pack for his MMA class and there was only 2 packs left in white at Target lol). Anyway it doesn’t leave much room for layering but it does give for some fun styling. You can pair a trench with denim shorts, pack a cardigan to the beach or wear your bikini under a linen blazer for a night on the beach.  Its a laid back style that you can’t really wear all year round anywhere else.

Spring Hair Pinspiration: Messy Braids

April 9, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

So the little guy has figured out how to pull my hair.  Every time I’m feeding him he grabs a fist full and pulls!  I’ve tried a hair clip but they annoy me after 5 minutes and every time I put it in a bun I think of The King of Queens episode with Carrie wearing a bun (see the clip below).  So I’m left with a pony tail or a braid.  I prefer the latter because my hair is long enough for him to pull on the pony tail if he is in the right position.  I’m not the savviest when it comes to braiding my hair so I’ve been searching for the perfect messy braid

Coachella Dreams

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

Unfortunately I’ve never had the pleasure of attending Coachella but it’s always been a dream and every year I drool over the festival’s free spirited styles & pictures all over the internet.  I figure if I can’t go to Coachella I can live vicariously through the pictures and maybe even incorporate a little into some outfits. A girl (or mom) can still dream…..
