I’ve worn my fair share of head to toe black outfits with each of my pregnancies and with every one I swear I looked decent – until I saw this picture of Gwen Stefani.  The woman looks FLAWLESS!  I don’t believe for a second that she’s rocking those heels on a daily basis but even without them she looks hot!  Sleek look to wear during pregnancies and post baby as well.  Check out her look for less below

I’ve had this lightweight anorak from Marshall’s for about 3 years and every fall I pull it out and finds tons of new ways to wear it,  I think it cost me only about $20 and this baby never goes out of style (it’s my “other denim jacket”).  Check out what I wore it with below and similar options as well.

 

 

 

What I’m wearing: Anorak from Ross (similar options below), skinny jeans from H&M, asymmetrical tank from Old Navy (also seen here), scarf from American Eagle, vintage multi strand necklace and the dark crystal inspired Compass necklace from Twisted Silver (available October 24), aviator sunglasses from Ross.

A Day In The Life With Old Navy’s The Rockstars

September 20, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


live in jeans. Whether day or night, I have dozens ready for any occasion.  For the most part the majority of my jeans have some spandex in them (it’s a must for me because I’m curvy and like lots of women my weight tends to fluctuate a bit – what can I say I like to eat!). When I was asked to try out Old Navy’s The Rockstars, I was SO excited not only because I’m a die hard Old Navy fan (my entire family shops there and I’m a bit crazy about their sales) but also because they’re comfy and have the perfect fit for every body.  When I first went to Old Navy to pick out a pair, I must admit I had a hard time picking just one. The selection is huge with colors like purple, yellow, brown cord, green and red that are amazing for fall.  I ended up picking the classic dark denim  because it offered me a lot of options with pieces I already own, but I totally fell in love with the pinks and reds and will probably head back next week to grab some.  From 9/20 to 10/3 Old Navy’s The Rockstars will be on sale for only $19.   Below is a glimpse of a day in my life with The Rockstars (and yes I really do change this much througout the day lol).

The Rockstars huge selection!

I had a hard time picking which one I wanted.

 

I had a few meetings and tons of calls so I paired The Rockstars with my favorite green blazer (aslo seen here), a white tee and black sling backs.

 

 

 Out for a early dinner in The Rockstars, a polka dot cardigan, yellow cami and fuschia mary janes.

 Later that night I swapped out the cardigan and threw on a dressier top for a night of dancing!

 The following day I started my day wearing a polka dot denim top and The Rockstars.

Later on swapped denim top with a vintage cardigan and clutch (also seen here)

 The Rockstars at Old Navy are a perfect fit for every body

Kinda loving Eva’s look!  The denim pencil skirt is a nice alternative to jeans and just as comfy (not to mention a great transitional piece for fall with tights).  I personally would keep the top a little sexier with a tank, an off the shoulder top or even a cropped one.  Check out Eva Mendes look for less with pieces from Forever 21, Target, maurice’s & more!

What to Pack for Your Summer Getaway

What to Pack for Your Summer Getaway

Are you breaking out in a sweat thinking about what to pack for your summer vacation? There’s no need to fret. Summer clothes are so lightweight and versatile, you won’t even need to check a bag, whether you’re spending a weekend at the beach or a week in Paris.

Check out some of favorite summer picks below!!!

Think Ahead
For the weeklong trip, consider your daily activities. Are you going to be traipsing through ruins, dining at four-star restaurants, or visiting churches where bare shoulders aren’t permitted? “I start packing three to four days before my trip, so I have enough time to make sure I’m taking what I need and taking out things that aren’t necessary,” says Nada Vergili, owner and tour operator of Nada’s Italy Tours, who frequently travels overseas from her home in Charlotte, N.C.

Pick wrinkle-free fabrics that pack and launder easily, like cotton jersey. If you don’t already carry an on-the-go stain remover in your purse, slip one in.

Pack for Utility
What I call “fashionable utility pieces” are a must. They’ll freshen up looks you’ll be repeating and also serve the practical purpose of keeping you warm on a chilly night. Two of my favorites are an open-knit sweater with the perfect amount of see-through for easy layering; and a large, colorful scarf that’s convertible as a shawl, a cleverly tied halter or a head wrap. A boyfriend blazer is another must; it puts a smart spin on a casual tee and will also look chic worn over a sleeveless summer dress.

City Vacation

  • Four to six tops Include a couple of casual shirts or tees, one tank top and one sequin or beaded top for dress-up nights. That’s a minimum! Since tees and halters barely take up more room than a pair of undies, you can easily toss in a few more.
  • Two pairs of pants Trend alert! Think pastel ankle jeans in mint green or buttercup yellow. Add a second pair of pants that can be worn with your fancy top.
  • One pair of shorts Opt for a crisp, classic, flat-front version that can be dressed up or down.
  • One skirt Accordion pleats are very now; wear with a simple tee for an effortless, flirty look.
  • One little summery dress Go for all white, a light print or — my pick this year — a candy-colored solid.
  • One swimsuit Choose a suit that’s reversible for a two-in-one option.
  • Three pair of shoes Flats for walking, dressy heels, and flip-flops.
  • Accessories One belt; one cross-body bag; one clutch or small purse; one simple pendant necklace; one statement necklace. “The statement necklace dresses up basic outfits for evening,” says Lisa Colaw, owner of Elan Style, a popular Scottsdale, Ariz., boutique. “Pick a piece that has both silver and gold, and it will go with just about everything.”

Beach Getaway

Pare down the city packing list for a weekend at the shore. Omit the pants, skirt and two of the tops. Opt for flowing fabrics and lightweight cotton blends.

  • One dress Choose either white or floral.
  • One tee Opt for paper-thin cotton.
  • One tube or tank top Look for a playful, bright hue.
  • One pair of denim shorts
  • One open-knit sweater
  • One large scarf
  • Three pairs of shoes
  • Two swimsuits Select swimsuits that have mix-and-match tops and bottoms.
  • One high-low skirt Short in the front and longer in the back, these skirts serve triple duty as a dress and a beach cover-up with the simple addition of a belt. Find them at Forever 21 (for less than $20), Urban Outfitters, Madewell or your favorite department store.
  • One flouncy romper or a strapless maxi dress Both are easy to toss over your bathing suit for a poolside lunch or sunset cocktails, and they’re equally great as standalone pieces. You can browse dozens of styles at the fashion search engine ShopStyle.com.
  • Accessories Substitute a linen tote for the cross-body bag; it’s versatile for the beach or marketplace shopping. Keep accessories playful. Turquoise is brilliant against golden skin, and dangly earrings are perfect for bare shoulders. For a relaxed vibe, slip on beaded leather wrist wraps.
