Kimono Love!

IMG_3519Check out our hottie Connie rocking her tropical printed kimono today, red high waist shorts, Platforms, white tank top, oversized sunnies from Gucci and this adorbs red leather bag from staud.

It’s there in the window of practically every chic boho store – the trendy kimono, often flaunting an incredibly appealing tropical print. Patterned with palm trees, flamingos and botanical florals in bloom, you may be tempted by the fabulous print, but weary about actually wearing it outside the house. Though the pyjama trend may certainly be stylish, the last thing you want to do is look like you have mistakenly left home in your loungewear robe.

Often, we can overthink the stying of an outfit. Our brains work on overtime, envisioning the various other items in our IMG_3516wardrobe that the design will match, as we attempt to create mental images of potential outfits. But with kimonos, this is absolutely the wrong strategy to take. It’s quite simple really, requiring the most basic attire: a plain T-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans or shorts – hey even a snug fitting dress.

Add more layers than that, and you risk looking like your outfit is overly layered, over-thought and overall, the opposite of effortless. Kimonos, in my opinion, should look like they were thrown on haphazardly; an afterthought!

Double Dose of Cuteness – Double Dose of Stripes!

From crop tops to fun leather slides , there are some summery trends that really just make summer feel like summer when you’re wearing them. This season, stripes have joined that list.

IMG_3440Face it, there’s really no better feeling like tossing on a good striped top and a pair of denim cut-off’s and strolling out the door on an awesome, sunny Saturday.  The best part about stripes is the feeling of ease they convey: You can pair ’em with just about any other item in your closet, from grungy, ripped jeans to a flowy, pair of pants or skirt.

On top of the trend being incredibly easy to style, there are also a slew of different variations you can take on the theme: bold or narrow stripes, knits, semi-sheer fabrics, you get the gist. Here Britt and Kerry are stripe twining!!!! How cute are these two?

Britt’s crop top first made it’s well deserved return to the fashion world a few seasons ago, it seemed like they were just another ‘quickie’ trend. After all, they’re pretty divisive among women, and not always the easiest to wear. However not to my surprise —midriff-bearing tops have defied the odds by sticking around, and it seems most women like Britt have figured out how to wear crop tops and look seriously cute.

Sunday Brunch Style!

img_3421-2.jpg

 

A nice cool day, some good food and couple mimosas along with some great company of friends and family is my idea of the ideal brunch date. When the occasion is such, you can neither dress down nor dress up too much. Here is a great outfit idea for your next brunch meet! To look as breezy as the day itself, pick a fun bright summer dress. This look is 100 percent Connie’s style, and she couldn’t have rocked it better – It is the perfect embodiment of all things “Beautiful Sunday”!

Mixing prints with Toni FiFi!

IMG_3344 2Wearing prints doesn’t have to be daunting. With a little bit of outfit inspiration, gingham, floral, and graphics prints can be just as easy to style as any solid colors you have in rotation this summer

Circle ‘D’ for ALL OF THE ABOVE – Says Toni! ‘You didn’t think I was gonna wear those with a solid did you? ‘ 😉 While that would have produced a beautiful outcome as well, this toucan jumpsuit from @showmeyourmumu was born to live wild and free with its other toucan friends.
My insanely gorgeous, fabulous and stylish friend Toni shares she’s all for mixing prints, and when they all share common colors in the right hues, and the patterns compliment each other in proportion you’ve got a DAILY DOUBLE 🙌🏽🙌🏽

She also encourages us to take a chance this week and try adding a patterned shoe to your florals, gingham, tropical prints and whatever other prints you are into these days. It may take some practice but the end effect will be worth the effort.

For the Frill of it!

IMG_3294I find that the best dresses in my closet are the ones that I can wear again and again… and again! No matter the occasion, they’re my stand-by staples.  No gal wants to buy a one-stop-shop rite ? Take this fun, frilled, denim blue, off the shoulder dress for example – it’s subtle, elegant and easy to wear! Britt can rock it to a casual barbecue complemented by a cute wicker bag to up the picnic vibes, yet it’s fancy enough for a night out with heels. Id say that’s an all around winner in my book.

Now can we take a sec to talk about whats really going down? ‘Frills’  you thought that ruffles and frills were for childhood birthday parties? Well, think again as they’re back, decorating collars, hemlines and forming all-over tops and dresses. There’s just something about that romantic, easy feminine, chic take on the frill this summer that makes me want to wear it even more. In my opinion they give off a very bohemian vibe, which is what i live for.
