Outfit 1: Patterned Maxi Skirt – pair this with a simple top, but keep the colors matching even in the accessories

 Outfit 2: Cream lace Midi Skirt – to keep a laid back boho vibe, pair it with “oxfordy” shoes, a simple clutch, and great sunnies

Outfit 3: Colored Silk Maxi Skirt – feel free to put a pattern on top, but make it cropped to balance out, easy accessories add to the summer chic look

Remembering Cory Monteith

15 Jul

It seems so strange to me that my last post was about Lea Michele.  It was absolutely devastating to learn about the far too early death of Cory Monteith.  He will truly be remembered as will be his accomplishments both in the media and over his struggles.  Especially to all us Gleeks out there, Monteith was an idol and an icon.  In his honor, I have compiled some photos of his best moments to look back on.

Lea Michele Style Transformation

2 Jul

Since the first day she walked onto the Glee set Lea Michele’s short dark locks and baby face have transformed, but so has her style (and her love life…cough cough Cory Monteith)! Check out how the singer/actress went from middle parts and ruffle dresses to ombre tips and flowing gowns.  Look from left to right to see the transformation.

Jessica Alba: I Just Love My…

1 Jul

Okay, admit it.  We have all been outfit repeaters. No shame! Jessica Alba has recently been quite the example of this.  The actress/entrepreneur/mom has been caught in her bright pink leather jacket at least four times in the past month! WOW! And talk about a statement piece.  It is hard not to notice this eye catching hot pink beauty.  The jacket is from the Ralph Lauren Collection and will set you back a whopping $ 5,350, but lucky for you its now on sale for 50% off!

Check out Alba’s outfit repeat-worthy jacket as she styles it in different ways – from comfy and casual to sleek and styling.

Alba, Bullock, & more: proof that moms can still be fashionistas

1 Jul

Who says being over 30 and having kids means you have to give up style? These famous ladies show that they can handle anything and still look flawless on and off the red carpet.

SANDRA BULLOCK

The amazingly talented actress proves that a 48 year old can still play a love interest in a rom com AND look good everywhere she goes.  Even as a mom, Bullock defies time with her flawless skin and figure donned with clothes that would rock anyone’s closet.

The chic and eco friendly lady  is comfy and cute when she is on mom duty, but when it comes to the red carpet Alba kicks it up about 1000 notches showing of her bangin’ bod and beautiful locks.
