Love Me Some Coral!

A simple chic coral dress. Us girls should all have one in our closet this summer. Everyone has that little black dress......well get out there and find a coral one. This color looks great on every skin tone.

Just love Hydrangeas. I wish they came in coral.

Dress~ Rue 21, Clutch~Vintage, Necklace~ Vintage

Now I know you have seen these shoes before on our blog, but they are so great and we love every opportunity to pair them with an outfit. So we put a tan clutch with the outfit instead of black so it wouldn't make it too dressy.

Happy hunting for that coral dress. You need it! And you will feel beautiful in it! It's Saturday......so have a great weekend!

True Blue

A little "True Blue" goes along way! No need to over accessorize with this blue lace dress! It's brightness and richness of color, carries itself! The metallic belt gives a little bling.

I love the high hem line and lower back hem line! This is a very popular trend right now with dresses and skirts. Very Chic!

Shoes~ Mossimo(Target)

Dress~Candies Brand (Dillards or Kohls), Ring~Forever 21

Never would I thought I would love a royal blue, lace dress but this one is beautiful. Never say Never...just when you think you wouldn't, you might, and then do! No "blues" here! Just "True Blue" style that's chic and sophisticated. Thanks for visiting. It's Wednesday, so have a great rest of the week!

Summer Flowers

Jeans of all colors are the rage this summer from white to bright neon! The great thing about white jeans are that you can put anything with them. Dress them up with heels or casual them out with flip flops! I love heels, but also love me some flip flops in the summer.

Floral Blouse~Forever 21, Jeans~Rue 21, Clutch~Emilie M

I love this blouse! Not only are the colors fabulous, and the fabric sheer, but all the detail makes it even more special! The exposed shoulders, higher front with lower back hem.....makes this blouse so chic and an " eye catcher" !

Your cell phone in the back pocket is essential to any outfit! Just kidding! We kinda forgot about it. I loved this pic so much though, it shows the flow of the shirt when you're walking.

These Tri color heels are my fav! They are LimeLight brand. You can find them at Rack Room Shoes.

Summer flowers are in bloom and beautiful. So don't walk by that bright floral shirt and think you can't pull it off! Buy it and sport your beautiful self this summer! Thanks for visiting!

Grab Your hat!

Shirt~Forever 21, Vintage Belt, Shorts~Refurbished old school Gap jeans(thrift store), Vest~Old 80's vest from thrift store, Watch Necklace~ Forever 21

Hat~Target, Watch~target

Shorts and boots are a great look this season! In the "These boots were Made For Walking" post, we paired cowboy boots with these same shorts. Here, we went with short, cropped boots! Both look great!

I just love hats! They always are the "statement" piece of an outfit! you really don't need too many other accessories when you are wearing a hat. Over accessorizing is a huge No No! You'll look like you tried too hard.
Boots~Forever 21, Satchel~Rue 21. Thanks for stopping in! Hope you are inspired and ready to get your style groove on! Never choose to be ordinary always "go for it"!

These boots were made for walking!

Shirt~Refurbished Rue 21 shirt, Shorts~Refurbished Jeans form thrift store, Belt~Vintage, Satchel~Rue 21, Boots~MaineWoods

We cut the shirt to be high in the front and low in the back. If you sew, you want to put a hem in it. I am going to do the same but didn't do it for the photo shoot...ran out of time =( .

The shorts are old school Gap jeans. You remember those high waist jeans. Well the high waist shorts are very in. Not to mention the old stone wash denim. You can have the latest looks at a thrift price, if you just think creatively! So get out there to those thrift stores and recreate old style to new style!

Fun Retro

Dress~Rue 21, Sweater~ Thrift Store, Vintage Belt, Shoes~Charlotte Russe

Adding socks to the heels, seals the deal to pull off this Retro look!

I love the yellow, black and red together. These colors are in theme with the Retro look.

The belt is vintage and a little long, but I still like it. The purse is Vintage.....love, love, love it! Found it at a thrift store. It is covered in beads even the leaf, vine detail is in beads....lovely.

This look isn't one I usually do, but wanted to do something fun and different! Try a different style one day. You may find you have several different styles. None could be wrong, if they make you feel beautiful!
