When it’s 65 in March

Well people, if you live in the Philly area you know that at one point before the wind became unbearably cold again we were teased with a sliver of spring heaven. It was 65! (Sun’s out guns out am I right?)  What better way to spend the day than avoiding homework to hit the park without tights!!! This hasn’t happened since what, September?

Any hoo, Spring I swear is almost here, and with spring comes all the joys of spring dressing. This is personally my favorite season to dress because frankly it’s the only season both jackets and sandals function together.

(Okay I wasn’t wearing sandals, but I could tell mother nature was trying to trick us.)

Dressing spring is so simple, unlike the complicated layering required for winter. Ditch the hats, gloves, scarves, and parka for a maxi dress and jean jacket. That’s all you need to look fabulous! Accessorize with a statement necklace and some moonies and get outside!

My favorite maxi’s for this season have a great all over print. They make a statement while still looking  effortless.

Take it to the streets and soak up that much needed vitamin D. The winter blues are over…well almost. Spring is around the corner which means, its almost practically summer.

Holiday Cheer.

Hello Guys and Dolls, This semester really took a toll on me at the tail end but I am back just in time for the Holidays!!

What to wear for those holiday parties can be extremely stressful on top of worrying about the gifts and making your dip to pass etc.. So never fear, that’s what  I am here for. The holidays are about being as festive as possible in my opinion. No, seriously go all out!

Here are some tips for creating the perfect holiday look

1. Find an Ugly Christmas Sweater. Nothing sets the mood more than a conversation piece. Raid your local thrift shops and find a doozy.

Here’s some good examples, though I’m still looking for one that lights up.

2. Wear Festive Colors.  Dive right in with the red and Green, even throw in some gold, sliver and white. The more festive the better.

3. Colored Tights. For those more going out looks, throw on a pair of colored tights with your little black dress for some holiday cheer that is also ready to hit the town.

4. Sparkle. Need I say more.

(And a good crown always brings the holiday cheer to any party).

8. Smile . As corny as that sounds, smile and have fun with it. It doesn’t get better thank spending the holiday season with the ones you love.  Laugh, smile, be merry.

Sparkle and Lace

sparkle 4We’re moving into the Holiday season, surprisingly Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away! Which means Holiday attire. When it comes to Holiday attire there are two things to remember:

Sparkle and Lace.

A little shimmer and a little lace is the perfect combination for holiday attire. And curls, curls and more curls! For Thanksgiving especially, you want to be comfortable in preparation for that food coma at the end of the night. Simply pair a lacey, breezy tunic with your “fat” pants, add some sparkles in the accessories and pair with a cute wedge. Stylish and prepared, that’s how I like it!
