Kourtney KArdashian pregnancy style is so effortless and always fabulous! I personally think she dresses better when pregnant it’s a bit sexier and feminine as opposed to her non-pregnant quirky style. Her she is leaving a NY hotel wearing a jumper from the Kardashian Kollection. If you can pull them off jumpers are a comfy, stylish option in pregnancy and can be worn post baby as well. Tip: looking to get add a blazer for the office or a denim jacket and sandals for a chilly night. Get the exact jumper and the remaining outfit pieces for less. *** product info below the pic
Jessica Alba brightens up a black pencil skirt with coral pumps, a white blazer and a striped tee making it the perfect summer outfit for the office. Great pieces that you might already have sitting in your closet and can also be worn for a casual summer day or night by swapping out the skirt for cut off shorts.

If street fashion, magazines, blogs and the latest runway shows are any indicator, the 1990’s fashion trend is still in full effect. To this, I say: woohoo! While the resurgence of Grunge 2.0 gets plenty of flak, I’m still stoked to see my favorite childhood and adolescent garments popping back up on savvy fashionistas and in glossy publications. For those experiencing these fads for the first time, let’s do a quick primer on 90’s summer fashions – both the lovely and the ludicrous…
Bike shorts are back, baby – feel free to leave the bicycle at home. While some say that the brightly colored, skin-tight shorts don’t look good on anybody, I say it can be achieved if you want it bad enough. Pair these funky shorts with a plain, long white tank (or short dress) that covers at least most of your bum. Because the pattern and style of these shorts scream louder than Fay Wray in King Kong, it will only work with an otherwise minimalistic outfit. Think plain black flip flops, minimalistic tribal jewelry and sleek hair.
Horn buns…or does this hairstyle have an actual name? Whatever it is called, I would say this look is staying in the past. Instead of a bunch of small buns all over your head, go for just two. Better yet, try a twisty one like Kate Moss in the photo below.
20 years later, platform shoes are still hazardous to your health,- especially the velvet variety. I know, I know – they looked great under your big baggy pants while raving in the nineties.
If you are going to try to pull off the platform, go for something a little more cute and doll-like such as the Syndrome Kitten shoes below. Syndrome Kitten Platform Shoes – $31 at

Slip dresses: These used to be worn as real dresses. No white ‘baby tee’ underneath required. Some still advocate for the slip-as-dress style, but can it be done without looking like you just rolled out of bed and decided to take your chances with something a little more comfortable?
For a little more polished and elegant sophistication, and a little less Courtney Love, try covering up a bit with a light weight pea-coat and standard pumps.
Denim overall shorts appear to have become much more tailored than they were in the nineties. I love them with a tight, black and white striped t-shirt underneath.
Crop-tops – evidently, bare midriffs never go out of style. This is one of the 90s fashion trends that I plan on fully embracing once I finally make it through that Jillian Michaels ab-workout DVD.
Cat-eye sunglasses are also making a comeback, but be warned – they can kinda make you look bitchy. Of course this guy above is an exception. Like most things in the nineties, Kurt Cobain pulled it off. Guys wanted to look as cool as him, and women dreamed he would look in their direction of the mosh pit.
Forget “mom jeans” – it’s all about the “dad jeans” in the above photo. If you can rock them with confidence like Wynona Ryder, then go for it. Of course, don’t attempt to rock the dad jeans while wearing the shoe atrocity shown below.
REALLY, sporty slide sandals and socks?! Again? REALLY?! When will people learn the objective truth that socks with sandals is never okay?
Be bold with mixing prints and patterns. I, for one, have never feared the dreaded ‘pattern overload’. I say, BRING IT. It especially works with florals, you just have to play with the size of the prints and go with a mix that matches, or mismatches in the right way.
Bodysuits: the new (old) foundational undergarment. This trend is alive and well, but I just can’t get with this one. I assume it would be an uncomfortable pain in the butt, why not just tuck in your shirt? Why do you have to pretend you are an amateur gymnast while snapping your shirt together at the crotch? What do I know though? I have heard they are super comfortable and allow for that perfectly tucked in look even with the most stubborn skirts.
Kool-aid colored hair is evidently ‘back in the saddle again’… But the jury’s still out on face jewels. Also, there are those tiny horn buns again. Gwen Stefani looks good regardless, but will you be as lucky?
Tons of ear piercings became the thing to do with your ears in the 90s. Now-a-days, it isn’t exactly a trend, but you have to ask yourself a serious question: Is the ear-to-nose-ring chain back in style yet?
Daisies, daisies everywhere: currently omnipresent at every single teenybopper, hip mall store, which I am stoked to see. The daisy trend never left the boundaries of my heart. I guess that is true of most 90s fashion.
Readers, what trends from the 90s will you never let go of?

Jennifer Lopez looking flawless as usual in a Markus Lupfer sweater, Gucci wedges and celine satchel. Cute little outfit that can be worn for day or night in lots of different ways. Swap out the sweater for a tank for those really warm days or wear some strappy sandals for a date night. Get Jennifer’s look for less with pieces from American Eagle, Aeropostale and more!
Now this is what I call a polished summer look! Ashley Tisdale’s pairs distressed denim shorts with a beige blazer, slouchy tee and peep toe booties. Easy stylish outfit you can wear anywhere and even dress it up a bit with a tank, strappy sandals and a sexy red lipstick.
I set up an entire pinterest board for crop tops and while it provides some major inspiration I am unfortunately going to have to pass on the trend because it’s only been 3 months since I had Joseph and I’m just not ready. I did however wear a crop top underneath a blazer last year before I was pregnant (you can see it here). Below are some of my favorite looks.
The usually private Drew Barrymore (my favorite actress) took the opportunity to show off her two girls today wearing a tee that any Game of Thrones fan will most definitely love! The shirt reads “Mother of Dragons” (insert meaning here) and all proceeds from the sale of the tee will go to help employment for foster kids in Los Angeles. Click
I’m all for a comfy stylish outfit! Jessica sports some casual jogger jeans, striped tee and Birkenstocks to run errands. Perfect outfit for a busy mom on the go.
When you live in Florida sandals are part of your wardrobe 365 days a year and I’m constantly looking for a new style. Because I’m always shopping for a new pair I’m more often than not searching for an affordable pair. Now if they’re a classic style that won’t go out of style I spend a little more but for the most part I try to stick under $50. Below I picked some of my favortie pairs under $50.
I have a love hate thing with this style. I can appreciate long gladiators sandals like Kourtney Kardashian is constantly seen wearing but they’re just not for me. I stick to platforms, wedges and flats but I’ve included a little bit of everything below. These are perfect to wear with a romper or some summer lace.

Kate Hudson always looks so chic and it’s never too forced or overly trendy. In this look she gives a a lace top a sexy look by showing off her pretty bra and then paired the top with fun polka dot pants. I chose HM polka dot set that’s perfect for hot summer days where you can wear alone with the camisole and sandals.
