August Essentials

 

 

To achieve a bronze glow in the summer, I love using Maui Babe Browning Lotion.

After spending a long day at the beach or in the sun, moisturizing with Aloe aftersun gel rejuvenates my skin

I love Lush's face masks because they leave my face feeling smooth and moisturized.

Platform sneakers and sandals are my favs because they dress up any outfit, but won't have your feet screaming in pain from wearing heels.

Espadrilles go great with any summer outfit and are super comfy!

Striped rompers and jumpsuits scream summer. The trend is everywhere! I love how they are light weight which is great for a hot summer day.

Floppy hats are one of my personal favs. They pair well with any bathing suit!

Grab a pair of these oval sunglasses! They match every outfit while complimenting every face type. 

Enjoy the last days of summer!

Spring Cleaning: Wardrobe Edition

Spring Cleaning: Wardrobe Edition

Tuesday marked the official first day of spring. Spring cleaning is an essential ritual for any fashionista looking to make room for new summer clothes and generally revamp their wardrobe. Here some ideas on how to clean out your closet.

1. Get rid of items you've neglected

If you're holding onto items you haven't taken proper care of, get rid of them. Shoes that are completely beat up, or jackets with buttons missing you know you'll never sew back on shouldn't take up space in your closet. 

2. Hold onto the basics you'll always need

There are certain pieces everyone needs. Solid pairs of blue jeans, perfect button up shirts etc. These are the clothes you'll wear year round and can be matched with trendier pieces seasonally. 

3. Say goodbye to overly trendy pieces

With fast fashion so popular these days, it's likely you have a couple items in your closet you've only worn once. It may have been on trend a couple months ago, but it probably looks silly now.

4. Prioritize classics and comfort 

One major plus of cleaning out your closet is rediscovering your favorite clothes that have been completely buried. Give the prime real estate in your closet to your favorite pieces that are timeless, comfortable or the epitome of your personal style. 

5. The cardinal rule: if you don't love it, lose it

Lastly if you don't love an item anymore, say goodbye to it. Clothes, in our opinion, should make you happy and excited to wear them, so if a piece isn't doing that for you anymore - sayonara.

How to Rock Spring's Trickiest Denim Trend

How to Rock Spring's Trickiest Denim Trend

It's undeniable - vintage jeans are huge this spring. When fitted correctly, the perfect pair of old levi's can become the most versatile and comfortable jeans in your closet. But for anyone who's tried on a pair and been terrified that they look like Tina Fey in that infamous SNL Mom Jeans Sketch - we're here to help. Follow these tips below:

IMG_2353.jpg

1. Forget Your Size 

No really forget it because it's useless. When it comes to vintage denim, you'll be shocked at how different each pair fits depending on age. The same exact styles in the same "size" can truly fit and look completely different on. Get ready to try on a lot of pairs because you'll want to see how each forms to your body. Try to look at the waist of the jeans, since this will be the hardest part to fit correctly, and find pairs that you'll be comfortable in. As a general rule of thumb though, older denim runs small. 

2. Remember Denim Stretches

You can get a lot of different looks with vintage denim, but if you want a pair that's tight along the waist and butt remember that denim stretches. While you're wearing your jeans, they can stretch out .5-1". You don't want to be uncomfortable when you first put them on, but you don't necessarily need tons of extra space.

3. Keep an Open Mind

This is key. Many people get caught up in wanting a specific style like Levi's 501, or believing vintage jeans only look good on a certain body type. There are so many styles and brands to choose from with vintage denim if you're willing to search. Also equally important to keep your expectations in check - vintage denim will never fit like today's skinny jeans or jeggings unless they're altered.

4. Style Your Pair to Your Tastes

There's so many ways to rock vintage jeans and you can up your denim game by making some easy changes to your pair. You can always cuff your jeans or cut the bottom for a frayed edge (another big spring trend). Add patches to the pocket or take a razor to the knees to make the perfect distressed pair. No matter what we're convinced there's a perfect pair for everyone.

Transitioning from Winter to Spring Fashionably

Transitioning from Winter to Spring Fashionably

Transitioning into your springtime wardrobe can be tricky, especially if you live in a finicky climate where one day is sunny and 60 degrees but the next is pouring rain and 40 (we feel you). In our experience, the best way to handle and enjoy the increasingly pleasant weather is through layering and styling your winter pieces appropriately with new spring ones. Read on to see how we're repurposing our winter faves for fresh spring looks!

Long Line Jacket

Remember the cute long line jacket you bought in the beginning of winter? Right before it actually got cold and you had to wear a sleeping bag to leave your apartment? Now is a great time to bust it back out. Pair it with some new spring staples, like cool jeans and backless loafers. Also, go for an easy sweater that you can layer with. 

Scarf

Scarves are one of the most versatile pieces. They'll actually keep you warm, but are easy enough to throw into your bag when the sun starts shining. For spring, we're rocking our old winter scarf with a patchwork denim mini and adorable suede moto jacket. Warm weather also means getting to wear sneakers again, score!

Turtleneck

Even once spring weather is in full effect, nighttime can be chilly up until summer. We like to keep rocking our turtleneck, especially since it still looks chic with a leather skirt. No need for tights though! Simply accessorize with chunky booties and a cool purse and you're ready for a night out.

How to Throw an Arm Party

How to Throw an Arm Party

For spring, we love stacking bracelets and rings to create a fresh look that's unique every time. This can be a hard look to put together though if you're an accessory junkie with too many beloved pieces to choose from. Below we'll guide you on how to throw the perfect "arm party" with three different styles to inspire you.

One key to mastering this look is balancing statement pieces with smaller ones. Take our boho arm party that features a stunning cuff bracelet surrounded by cute beaded bracelets. We love continuing the sparkle from the bracelet charms with a pretty little ring.

Mandawa bracelet / Star becklette / Evil eye becklette / Beaded cross ring

Personalized jewelry is always good for showing off your unique style, especially when stacking bracelets and rings. For our preppy look we threw in a "mama" bracelet that we love, but you can really choose any piece that reflects who you are. 

Baguette bar bracelet / Pearl becklette / Mama becklette / Gold ring

Our third style inspiration is a rocker look that reminds us when it comes to parties, there are no rules. Don't worry about making every piece of your arm party match, you can even mix and match metals like we did with silver and rose gold.

Spring has Sprung with these Cute Looks

The temperate weather lately has sparked our spring fever. Although the first official day of spring isn't till March 20th, we're already shopping for the perfect items to upgrade our spring wardrobe. Read on to check out three different looks we're dying to rock in some warmer weather.

Our first look features one of our fave new trends for the season: sleeve detailing. We love the embellishments on this crisp white top. You can keep the rest of the outfit simple with cool denim and pretty little earrings.

You know the saying how the saying goes: April showers bring May flowers. Well this olive rain coat is the perfect way to take cover this spring. It looks adorable paired with black pants and gold jewelry, like this awesome necklace and ring.

Nice spring weather is the perfect reason to wear pretty, floral dresses and skirts. This light blue one would be perfect for a night out with strappy sandals and glam gold bangles
