Black, White, and Red All Over

We were supposed to have this big storm that was going to come and break up this god awful heat wave we’re having… I haven’t noticed one yet, have you? My hair certainly hasn’t noticed less humidity yet either! I wore this dress on Saturday in hopes of it being a little cooler out than it was, no dice!

I’m kind of loving that the sun is making my hair even lighter… saving me a little self-inflicted damage I suppose! ha.. Anyway, I wore this little number out to dinner for my hub’s birthday. Another celebration! This time with the whole fam. I typically don’t enjoy birthdays, there is always so much pressure to make them “the best birthday ever!” It never works out that way, does it? But this year we had a nice relaxing weekend, complete with a couples massage, lots of wine, a little shopping, and LOTS of relaxing! Muy bueno.

OH and how exciting that the Royal Baby is on their way!! I heard a rumor if they have a girl they are considering the name Charlotte! And North West was born on Charlotte’s birthday as well. I think this is a sign from the universe that she’s destined for greatness! haha ;] Until next time, kisses!

One Look 3 Ways: The Full Skirt

Doesn’t it seem like everyone tells you what you should be wearing these days? And don’t you kind of feel like a bum if you don’t run right out and buy it? Even if you know it’s 100% absolutely not the trend for you? I saw a tweet from Cosmo this morning that read “what to put in your closet and what to throw out of your closet for this summer!” What about next summer? What if next summer crop tops are the sign of the devil? Won’t you feel silly when that’s all you own? Anyway, my point is, don’t buy into trends. If something doesn’t make you feel like a god damn beauty queen, nix it! OR, style it your own way! If you don’t think you have the stomach for a crop top, throw it over a printed maxi dress. Layers baby! We love ’em. That’s kind of the point of this post, taking one item and styling it 3 different ways, because not everyone can pull off the trendiest looks! So here is how I would style a full skirt, from super casual, to kinda casual kinda dressy, to a night out.

Look One: Cashe. 

DSC_3901 DSC_3902Strappy sandals and minimal accessories paired with a classic v-neck make this look so every day. Bonus points if you happen to have a headband laying around that perfectly matches your printed skirt like I did, ha!

Look two: The One That Could Go Either Way… 

DSC_3898 DSC_3897 DSC_3894 DSC_3892This look is fun because it’s kind of casual, but kind of dressy at the same time. This all depends on the accessories. Pair it with some flip flops and lose the necklace and it’s super casual, but the booties & statement neck kick it up a notch. It also incorporates everyone’s favorite thing: chambray! So fancy!

Look Three: Date Night Ready

DSC_3891 DSC_3887 DSC_3884 DSC_3881Make this look more date night by going big on the makeup.. maybe a little smoky eye? Or a bright red pout. Heat Wave from NARS is the perfect eye-catching red! You could also throw your hair up into a chic top knot. The accessories definitely help this look too, anything with a little bling works here! These kinds of strappy heels are in right now and it makes me super happy because I love them!

So there you have it babes, One look 3 ways! One of these is BOUND to work for you! Play with it and send me pictures! I’d love to see! Until next time, kisses!
