Pay attention very closely to the above picture. The above is something you’ve never seen before on this blog – me wearing shorts. This may not seem like such a big deal, but to me it is. Like every woman, there are certain things about my body I’d like to change and things that I’m uncomfortable with. For the past few years I’ve rarely worn shorts at all. Don’t get me wrong, I love shorts, especially distressed denim cut offs, but for whatever reason, lately I’ve feel quite self conscious wearing them.

Camo people. I’m wearing camo. When this trend first emerged last fall, I didn’t quite know what to think. Honestly, for me, wearing camo was only something hunters or army personnel wore. Wearing camo in everyday life?! But, I continued to see it more and more, and once I saw the many different ways it could be styled, it grew on me. So, like certain other trends, when I finally decided to “jump on board” (hey, better late than never, right?) and saw this cute embellished and sparkly camo top at Forever21, I went for it!
I decided if I’m going to wear camo, I’m going to wear it right and wear it my way – styled with a great pair of boyfriend jeans cute peep toe pumps, a funky bag and bracelets, a little rose gold and a bright red lip. So, here ya go folks…definitely not your average camo. Dare I say…..”Glam-0“??? Ok, maybe not, but hey, it’s definitely “glammed up” camo! 😉
I must know – what do you think of this trend? Would you rock it?
Ok, ok…I know what you’re thinking. Peplum top…blog post title “Peppy”?? How original Stephanie. Well my lovelies, so sorry – t just fit! 😉 The post title of my last outfit post was “Breezy”. In all actuality, I really should have called this one “Sweaty” – it was (and still is) hoooot!
Outfit Details: top – target (old – similar), jeans – old navy, wedges – kohl’s (I’ve got my eye on these), bracelets – forever 21 (these still bring the bling), ring – macy’s , necklace – kohl’s, sunglasses – asos , lipstick – revlon “kiss me coral” , nails – essie “bikini so teeny”
In case it isn’t evident from the above pictures, it was just a bit…um….windy the day these pictures were taken. Maybe I should have named this post “Easy, Breezy and Craaaazy Hair“. Anyways…
I’m currently in a state of just wanting to dress comfortably. Maybe it’s the heat, but regardless, when moods like this strike, jeans, wedges and a cool tee or breezy top are my “summer uniform” Yes, I did say jeans during the summer, but hey, what can I say? I love me a good pair of jeans (f course the summer temps do make me wear a more of capri or boyfriend jean)! However, no matter how casual of a “dressing mood” I’m in, I always try to add a little bit of bling. 😉
top – express (old), jeans – old navy, gladiator sandals – dillards (SPLURGE on this leopard print pair or SAVE w/ these ), necklace – kohl’s *similar), ring – old navy,clutch – nine west, sunglasses – asos (LOVINGthis reflector pair), nail polish – revlon “trendy” (part of the gucci westman “pacifica” collection), lipstick – revlon “kiss me coral”
Cool blue. What is it about the color blue that is so calming and soothing? Aside from bright color, it’s always a color I’ve really loved and always tend to gravitate toward. Especially when it comes to times in life when stress is high, a nice calm and soothing color does the trick. Of course, if you know me and my love of color, I didn’t just stop with blue – obvi. I decided to accent my “cool blue” top with a pop of hot pink and a great bright blue accent color on my nails to pull it all together.

Decided to change things up a bit with this outfit post! Presenting me in “live action“! Haha! Just yet another example of me going to my “happy place” fashion-wise in some more great bright color. Coral is a very coveted color so far this spring season in both fashion and makeup. Fine with me! Coral is a color I’ve always loved and will definitely continue to love throughout this spring and coming summer season!
Life has not been easy for me lately. However, despite my tough times, I decided maybe wearing a bright, sunny and overall happy color was what I needed. Amazing how, even if only for a short time, just wearing a great bright color can improve your mood. This sunny yellow top from Ann Taylor is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It’ s fun to wear and so easy to style; a piece that can effortlessly be dressed up or dressed down.
What are some of your favorite colors to wear to improve your mood?

Black and white paired together has always been a very classic, modern and clean look. With it being one of springs biggest trends, specifically bold black and white stripes, I am all about finding interesting and different ways to style it! With the two colors naturally being such easy and neutral colors palettes to work with, the opportunities are endless. I definitely will be adding in a little pop of bright color to this trend later in the season, but for now I just had fun wearing the two colors together with a simple pop of fun via my leopard print heels, a fun zebra print clutch and a bright lip color.
Outfit Details: beanie – old navy (this one is waaay cute), top – express (old) , skinny jeans – old navy, stilettos – charlotte russe, necklace – forever 21 (SIMILAR) (last seen here) , clutch – dolce vita, ring – dillards, nail polish – essie “butler please”, lipstick – Maybelline “Vivids” in fushia flash
Sometimes you just really need to go for it….just punch it up. What am I am talking about? Well, I guess you can look at what I just said and think I mean many different things. In this case, I’m referring to the great punches of bright color via my new favorite hot pink beanie, great aqua necklace, NEON pink lipstick and vivid blue nail polish. In most cases all of these different colors together would be quite the crazy disaster, however, here I luckily used a bit of common sense (hehe!) and grounded them with black.
With spring being right around the corner, I know I’m not the only one loving some color right now. Wearing bright color just instantly makes me happy. This being so, expect to see much more of it popping up on the blog as spring comes.
Have you been rocking a bit of bright color lately? What’s your favorite way to wear it?
