Simple and Classic Date Night

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Whether it's a first date or a date night with your hubby it's the perfect excuse to slip into that new dress hanging in your closet (we all have one with tags still on it begging to be worn) and head out for a romantic night on the town!

Sexy, flirty and fun, don't be afraid to show off your shape!  I chose this simple yet beautiful ruched body-con dress and added a lot of sparkle with a statement necklace, bracelets and clutch.  With an understated dress you can pile on the accessories!  Sticking to a simple and classic look I couldn't pass up the chance to wear my classic black Louboutins.  The perfect date night look that will leave your man speechless!!

How To Wear Stripes

Monday, July 28, 2014

How To Wear Stripes.  Stripes can be intimidating but if you style them right they can be flattering!  So let me show you a few of my insider tips on how to wear stripes.  If you're unsure about this particular pattern but want to incorporate it into your wardrobe start with basic black or navy.  If you're a little more reserved start out with a pair of striped heels or a purse.

If you're ready to dive right in let's start with a skirt.  I love this print in a form fitting pencil skirt, stripes on bottom and a solid color on top.  You only need one focal point here and trust me the stripes will do just that!  
Pants, another favorite of mine.  Vertical stripes are your friend here (especially when dealing with the bottom half) and it's a great way to slim your figure so make sure to look for skinny jeans or tailored pants.

On the other hand, for those who are a little more daring a pair of wide-leg pants can also look chic paired with a simple tee or cropped top.  I'd suggest a slouchy pant with a sleek pair of heels.

Summer is a must for nautical stripes, even if we aren't yachting in the beautiful St. Maarten we can still look the part!  A boat neck shift dress is the perfect silhouette to flatter your frame!

How do you like to wear stripes?  I'd love to know!

Grey Maxi and Fringe Vest

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Maxi Dresses...I'm obsessed with them as you can see here, here and here.  They are my go-to when I need a quick and easy outfit!  The best part is you can just layer on accessories to create any type of look.  Today I felt inspired by my bohemian side and added an oversized fringe vest, black floppy hat and yes sandals, well it is summer after all!!  But the best part is transitioning this look straight into fall by switching out the shoes for a pair of ankle boots and adding a chic moto jacket!  Until then, let's enjoy the rest of summer.
