tomato, tomahto

2nd June 2013

 i’m not too fond of tomatoes to snack on but have no problem looking to this vibrate veggie (it’s technically a fruit, but i can’t quite commit to calling it one) for outfit inspiration!

tomato red is a bold color choice, but pairing it with a contrasting color opposite of red on the color-wheel can give it an extra pop! and finishing with black & white takes the look to another level.


:: love my ampersand ring? get the look via etsy ::
this summer, skip the shorts and try a full skirt instead! it will keep you cool, but add an element of sophistication to your summer style! if you don’t happen to have one, try converting a skirt!

Walking On Sunshine

18th April 2012

Nothing brightens up a day like yellow and white stripes!
So today, I dressed down my sunshine skirt for a beautifully bold look, check it out…

dare to be chic daily, even on your most casual days, with bright patterns and unexpected accessories
Adding a flower pin on a jean jacket takes it from denim and dull to fun and flirty.
Understated is Overrated, so pile on bangles for a chunky casual look
Pair a patterned long sleeve under a basic white button up to make a look interesting while staying warm
Have fun with fashion with a bold statement bag!
When in doubt, make a statement with a a fun necklace. Layer it over your collar for some added oomph. 
Although this skirt can easily be dressed up, a few wardrobe basics like ridding boots and a denim jacket can help dress it down.
the layering and bangles also help in keeping in casual
and don’t forget to smile… you’re never fully dressed without one!
