Summer Weekend

Summer Weekend

Boden vest
Quiksilver shorts
Flat heel shoes
Essie nail polish

Back from another vacation, but that's it, I promise! No more slacking the rest of the summer.  I was doing a little camping with the fam, where words like style, fashion, make up and hair dryer were not in my vocabulary. 

It's good to be back to the real world though, where even though it's hot, hot, hot, you can both stay cool and look cool!  Enjoy the weekend!

All Ages

All Ages

Old Navy jersey top

Did you miss me?!  I was off galavanting on a fabulous houseboat vacation, but now it's back to reality and time to catch up on some outfit posts. 

I love today's outfit because it works so well on all ages, young to mature.  I especially love these TOM wedges, can you believe they're TOMS?!

Peplum for Everyday

Peplum for Everyday

Peplum top
Old navy shorts
Tommy Hilfiger wedge heels
Hobo shoulder bag
Bezel jewelry
Stella & Dot post earrings

Have you noticed the hottest new trend these days in peplum?  (by the way, isn't that a funny name?)  Maybe you've even wondered how in the world does one wear peplum in real life? 

Wonder no longer! Here's a great example of how to take a trendier piece like peplum and incorporate it into a classic.  Buyers beware, peplum is not flattering on everyone, but does work well on boyish or hourglass figures.

Bright Shorts

Bright Shorts

American Eagle Outfitters lace top
Gap shorts
Loft shoes
Crossbody handbag
Stud earrings
Set of bangles

This is the year of bright bottoms, everything from jeans, capris, skirts and now shorts.  Today's post is a great example of how to pull them off if you're over 18, notice the length and higher rise of the short.  I don't recommed the rolled cuff for everyone, especially if you have larger thighs, but hopefully these shorts can be rolled down and are not sewn this way.

Figure Flattering Dress

Figure Flattering Dress

Boden fitted dress
H M leather handbag
Piperlime sandals

This is a great dress style for any body shape - pear, apple, curvy or flute.  The length of this dress, which sits just above the knee, along with the 3/4 length sleeve and neckline are also universally flattering.

When wearing a dress with details like this one I like to keep the accessories simple, allowing the dress to take center stage.  You can always add a fun bag like this yellow clutch if you're looking to add an extra bit of fun or whimsy.
