Let’s get a JUMP(suit) on the weekend.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Fashion tips

Helloooo Weekend. It’s been  quite a week and I apologize for being MIA…but we’re back and happy to share this post on jumpsuits for Spring and Summer. Below is a sampling of a few of my favorite styles that look good on just about everyone.

Jumpsuits are super comfy and CAN be so flattering!

Here are a few tips to make sure you look your best no matter what style you choose to wear:

  1. Fit is absolute key.
  2. Check pant length in the event you want to pair with heels. Best to go a little longer and roll the hem up when you wear with sneakers or flats. Options are important!
  3. Most denim jumpsuits ae 100% cotton. If you’re going to machine wash -I highly recommend washing alone in a delicate cycle on cold to insure that the color stays vibrant and the jumpsuit doesn’t shrink in size.
  4. Sleeves, no sleeves? I recommend a 3/4 to long sleeve-you can always roll the sleeves up on warmer days.
  5. A cinched in waist will also make you look like you have an hourglass figure.
  6. Dark denim will always make you appear thinner.

Hello First Day of Spring & Scarf Styling….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Hello Spring…We thought you’d never get here! When you live in a colder climate, the first day of Spring is not only something you long for but something that doesn’t seem to come fast enough as the Winter months seem to linger on and on and on.

One this first day of Spring it is OFFICAL (as far as the calendar is concerned), and although  the weather temperature outside hasn’t got the memo from the calendar that it is actually SPRING it allows us to anticipate that YES in fact  the onset of warmer, sunnier and longer hours of daylight are ahead! Triple YAY!

Just to get you in the mood for Spring and inspire you that brighter days along with a mroe vibrant color palette are ahead…I thought you might enjoy a selection of brightly colored outfits (inspired by the tulip colors above) with some major scarf styling.

Drape it over your Coat for a SPLASH of color!

Scarves. Yes, you heard me, the scarf never goes out of style and gives you a plethora of way to wear it!

A bold pop of color when draped Over one shoulder…..

Drape softly around your neck

Drape and cinch it  in with a belt at the waist…

Going Green…Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  It goes without saying that today is the day that many people will dive into their closets and source some shade of green to wear in celebration of the holiday. Even if you’re not one little bit of Irish-you’ll most likely join the party and put on something in this pretty hue. I have sourced two outfits that I hope will inspire you to go green with a POP of pink.

Here’s looking forward to warmer days ahead and a chance to partake in putting on this pretty hue.

Perusing Pretty Prints for Spring!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

Whenever I come across a site that I think is Glamour worthy and uber stylish, I just have to blog about it because that’s the  whole point of having a blog/”Style Sharing” coupled with my belief that once we slide into the month of March we are OVER Winter and ready for  some major Spring Style.

To quell your craving for Spring fashion I found  a bevy of absolutely beautiful print dresses on a site I just came across a few days ago and have been perusing it ever since: https://www.sikadesigns.co.uk

The site is  out of the UK and before you get worried about ordering overseas, I am here to tell you that the site is legit, offers items that are  handmade/ made to order AND the best part…. the prices are AFFORDABLE (even with the dollar conversion). They ship International (translation over to the US) for a flat rate and the styles are sooooo pretty.

I hope these pretty prints will give you a lift and inspire you and per chance you may want to order yourself a little happy from their site… it won’t break the bank and you’ll be twirling to your hearts content in any these beautiful creations.
