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.

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.

5 Spring Picks

Living down here in Florida doesn’t exactly let you enjoy fall and winter fashion to the fullest but it does let you enjoy spring and summer trends a lot earlier than most.  So while I do envy the layering, boots and all the cozy accessories most of you get to wear I also appreciate that I can probably rock some pastel colored pieces and maybe even shorts on just about any day of the week.  So with that said check out some of my favorite spring trends, some of which you can probably wear now if you layer and/or accessorize properly.

Last year I was loving pastel skinnies and not much has changed for this year.  Pastel is a spring must have.

Pastel Jeans

Candy Crop Jeans – $68 at Nastygal.com | Mint Skinny Jeans – $98 at Superdry.com

I’m loving white blazers this year.  I do have one that I wore quite frequently last year BUT it wasn’t a crisp white tuxedo blazer like this one from Express.  Add some gold like one of my favorite bloggers Love Maegan and you’re good to go.

White Tuxedo Blazer for Spring

White Tuxedo Blazer – $70 at Express.com

Booties will still be around in full force and I’m thinking these metallic sheen booties will go perfect with spring dresses or with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a tee – love them!

Spring Booties

Belle By Sigerson Morissison Yoko Booties – $88.50 at Shopbop.com

Warmer weather calls for dainty jewelry.  Pile on thin shimmer bangles like these from Gorjana.

Gorjana Bangles

Shimmer Bangles – $95 at Gorjana.com
Bucket bags will be a big trend.  Try them out in neutral colors to compliment your spring palette.

I knew the Miley had it in her!  Behind all that tongue wagging there is a tomboy with style. Denim on denim can easily go wrong but she kept it all together with the perfect hues of blue, a gold chain belt and sexy heels. I was a little tempted to swap those heels out for some booties but that would have been too predictable.    Get her look for less and check out other ways to wear the pieces in the outfit.

Miley Cyrus' Look for Less

Denim Shirt – $49.95 at Hollister.com | Skinny Jegging – $29.95 at AmericanEagle.com | Strappy Heels – $50 at ASOS.com | Gold Chain Belt – $39.95 at ShopMango.com | Triple Chain Necklace – $46 at ASOS.com

Celebrity Copycat: Selena Gomez’s Look for Less!

Selena Gomez‘s outfit is so sexy and feminine!  Great day to night look – just swap out the heels for ballerina flats.  Want a more reserved version of her look?  Try a pencil skirt or slacks.  Tip:  For a more day to day friendly look try the peplum top with denim.

Effortless Stripes

Stripes are my favorite pattern and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into my outfits.  It’s such a classic pattern that will never go out of style and I just love the way it gives outfits an effortless laid back feel.  Best of all stripes are super easy to dress up or down and can be worn as an accent in the form of accessories or even shoes.   During the warmer seasons stripe exude a nautical vibe but it’s such a versatile pattern that it can stand on its own in any season and in any color (although my personal fave is basic black and white).  Famous fashionista’s like Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian wear stripes flawlessly year after year but you don’t need to break the bank to wear this trend. Check out some cool striped pieces from Target below and how to incorporate them into your spring wardrobe.  Tip:  When shopping for stripes always keep in mind that the smaller the stripe the smaller you look – and that goes for accessories as well.

A striped linen blazer will give any of your basic favorites a polished look.  Wear over a tank or tee with cut off shorts or jeans.

Striped Linen Blazer – $30 | Denim Shorts – $20 | Graphic Tee – $18 | Quilted Cross Body Bag – $19.99 | Thong Sandals – $19.99

Striped tank tops are a must have for every season and style!  I have probably a dozen in tons of colors and styles and I let them peek out underneath tees, sweaters and jackets.

Stripe Cowl Neck Tank – $14.99 | Pleated Maxi Skirt – $20 | Pullover Shrug – $11 | Laverne Flip Flops – $14.99 | Chiffon Crossbody – $26.99 | Straw Fedora – $12.99

I love me a striped skirt!  A casual “Audrey Hepburn” like piece that’s perfect for spring and summer nights.

Stripe Skirt – $19.99 | Lace Top – $17.99 | Stripe Thong Sandal – $19.99 | Envelope Clutch – $19.99

A striped boat neck sweater is the epitome of spring!  Give it a go with bright skinny jeans and heels.

Stripe Boat Neck Sweater – $22.99 | Colored Skinny Jeans– $22.99 | Button Down – $18 | Pointy Toe Pump – $39.99 | Envelope Clutch – $24.99

This peplum and stripe dress is so chic and flattering (click here to see Kourtney Kardashian in a peplum and stripe outfit).  The peplum can help create curves and flatter those who have them while the thin stripes provide all the style.  Pair with a denim jacket and a colored belt for some extra oomph.

Stripe Peplum Dress – $24.99 | Platform Pumps – $29.99 | Satchel – $29.99

It’s Time for Springtime.

Stylish Spring Picks For The Family

February 28, 2013 by

When it comes to online shopping (and I do most of my shopping online) I look for stores that have variety.  Especially at the begining of a new season where I like to buy  basic stylish pieces  that I can mix into my wardrobe.  Being a busy working mom I also look for stores that have something for the whole family to save time and money on shipping.  Stores like psyche.co.uk make it a cinch to do just that. You can easily shop by category, price, size or even trends!   With over 150 designer brands like Michael Kors, Barbour and Marc Jacobs to name just a few, there’s something for everyone regardless of style, size or budget.  And customers ordering outside the European Union get a 20% discount on their order, which is a biggie for me.  Established in 1982, Psyche has received recognition on an international stage, attracting the attention of fashion industry heavyweights in both the UK and  in Tokyo, Singapore and New York, including many parts of Europe.  Psyche aims to please the customer and make online shopping a pleasure so I can only imagine that in store shopping is equally enjoyable.  Check out some of my favorite spring picks below for the entire family.

I was immediately impressed by their vast selection: The tops range from dressy blouses with chic prints that are easy to wear for between weather like spring  (see below),  to trendy tees and preppy polos (and their jeans selection was just as impressive). Their shoe selection was equally diverse carrying shoes from affordable lines like Chinese Laundry to Ted Baker (I absolutely love the Ted Baker selection).   In this particular outfit I chose a light star print blouse, a faux fur jacket that I LOVE and gray jeans to create an effortless look that you can wear day or night.

Paul Smith Star Print Shirt – $62.39 | J Brand Skinny Jeans – $119.14  | Faux Fur Cropped Jacket – $59 | Paul Smith Cross Body Bag – $559 | Ted Baker Bow Heels – $124.80

The men selection was equally on par and just as fashionable.  I find that some online stores tend to stick to men’s basics and that’s not the case with Psyche.  Their men’s knitwear  and dressier shoes definitely stood out.  This outfit was totally inspired by my two teenagers.  They wear a pair of khaki’s, a button down and a light pullover nearly everyday.  I chose a white sweater because it gives the basic khaki’s a crisp clean feel and the polka dots provide a little flair.  Love it!

Hugo Boss Polka Dot Shirt – $143.71 | Armani Crew Neck Sweater – $137.41 | Ralph Lauren Khaki’s – $83.71 | J Shoes Brogues – $143.71 | Navy Nixon – $545

With spring comes rain and what makes rainy days a little more fun?  An adorable pair of kids Hunter boots!

With elements both classic and edgy, Sophia Bush’s look is perfect for day or night. Tip: swap the pants with a floral dress for an extra punch of color; try a pair of skinny jeans for a more laid back look; or consider a pleated skirt (a huge trend for spring) for a softer look.  These are great foolproof pieces and the jacket will inject some fun into your wardrobe.  Get Sofia’s look for less with pieces from  Old Navy, Charlotte Russe, Dorothy Perkins & more!

Celebrity Copycat: Olivia Wilde’s Look for Less!

April 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

Olivia Wilde’s oufit screams spring!  I love stylish outfits that are pulled together with basics because it’s so much easier to transition the pieces from season to season.   Not fond of the jeans so I swapped them out with boyfriend jeans.  Tip: Don’t be afraid to pair a bright cardigan with a bold top (building outfit’s around it is a cinch).  Get Olivia’s look for less with pieces from Tobi, Mango, Quiksilver, Old Navy & more!

Cardigan – $29 at Mango.com

Boyfriend Jeans – $34.75 at Quiksilver.com
