Fundamentals of Fashion

Hi Friends!

This week’s Dior word of the week is more of a phrase.

I’m really glad he put this in his book…

The reason I’m so glad he added this is because there can be so much pressure in fashion even if you are only slightly into it. That isn’t even counting the second you pull up Instagram and you see the sort of famous “Insta Models”. My point is I’m glad he said this because there truly is no key. Don’t stress out over looking “perfect”. Have about 10 garments that you love, feel good in, and know it’s a no fail look. For me, I adore a cape and you can’t go wrong with black and white.

My food for thought? Own who you are, your style, and certainly don’t give a damn about anything else when it comes to dressing.

Be you.❤️

Put Together and Polished

Clearly we all know what earrings are. But I must say I just adore the way Dior speaks. This was the days where heading to the country for a weekend was a thing. I picture that couple sitting in a convertible, the woman with a scarf around her head so that her hair doesn’t get messed up buy the wind…

Okay, enough day dreaming….

Having worked in jewelry for a couple of years I got to see to many amazing earrings. True works of art. And I believe every woman should have a simple pair of earrings for every day. My favorite is of course, pearls. But I must say nowadays, you don’t have to save those big fun earring just for evening. Here are two pretty different looks of mine:

Even if your hair is down earrings really do finish off a look. This could be the only jewelry you have on and it will still always make you look more polished and put together.

Here is to a new week!

A Good Habit

Happy Monday Everyone!

We’ve all got habits. The good, the bad, and the purposeful. I must say I have all of these but today I’m talking about a good and purposeful habit to start. I hardly had time before I was a Mom now my time is crazy limited. That goes for picking out outfits too. I’ve found myself all too often going through my closet like a crazy person, making a mess and cussing because I need an outfit like that instant. I’m typically a very organized person so I said that this had to stop. About six months ago or so, any free time that I had I would put together outfits that I could grab and throw on in a moments notice.

Three things I always make sure of:

The tags are removed

It fits

The garments are wrinkle free

I can assure you that getting in to the habit of this will help you out on a daily basis. I’m really neurotic about preparing for the week so I always look at my schedule for the week and put outfits with what I have going on that day.  

Now, lets tackle this Monday with a strong coffee and a good outfit!
