Jump In

I absolutely love the sexy 70's vibe of these jumpsuits.  Super-easy to wear...  a fresh alternative to dresses.

Tribal Beat

Mexican and Southwestern-inspired prints are still going strong for Spring 2012.  With regard to makeup, think bronzed skin and warm sunsets!

Lemon Aid

  From butter yellow to golden sunshine, there’s a hue for just about anyone!

Lemon Aid

If you are hesitant, try pairing a bright top with khaki shorts or white jeans.  Navy also works much like a neutral and works well with just about any shade of yellow!

Still Hot: Boyfriend Jeans

Photo: Denim Blog
Boyfriend jeans are still on-trend and are a stylish and super-comfortable option going into spring and summer!  To avoid crossing the line from chic to sloppy, keep a few rules in mind.
  1. Jeans should sit low on the hips and fit should be slightly loose but not baggy.
  2. Pair with a belt to keep the look more polished.
  3. Leg should taper slightly.  Roll cuffs for maximum effect.
  4. Slim-fitting or structured tops generally look best, but cropped jackets and sheer tunics work as well!

What to wear with colored denim.

When pairing colors, your best bet is to stick with hues next to or directly across from each other on the color wheel.  If this much color scares you, neutral tones and metallics (champagne and silver) are an easy fix!

Get to know: Closet Collage

I only stumbled upon Closet Collage on Tumblr quite recently, but already, I’m obsessed!  She creates visually stunning collages from runway images.  The colors in this Prabal Gurung composition really caught my eye.

Minty Fresh

Pastels are huge this spring.  Try out mint as an unexpected (and surprisingly flattering) pop of color!

Nailed it! (Or the manicure even I can't destroy)

24 hours.  I think that was my previous record for maintaining shiny, newly polished nails. I tried Gelish, Shellac and OPI gel manicures and while they did last longer, I worried about the UV exposure (who needs scary, wrinkled hands!)  Enter Signature Nail Systems.  My manicurist talked me into trying the powdered colors and now I'm 100% hooked.  My last "set" lasted 3 weeks and soak-off removal didn't leave them damaged or shabby!  Hooray!  Probably my most favorite beauty find of the year (so far...)  Try "Puppies Breath" for a pretty nude-pink. Click for SNS salon finder.

In the nude

Beige is hardly boring.  These subtly sexy shades of nude and blush
make me happy summer is just around the corner!

I just adore being "in the nude"
