The Best You

Hey, hey Happy Monday!

Individuality will always be one of the conditions of real elegance. Read that again. This is exactly why I’m totally in love with this weeks Dior Dictionary Word.

I love fashion so much. And sure I like a good trend but Dior really gets it right by saying that no one should be a slave to trends. I’m a huge advocate of being yourself and having your own style. It’s what separates the sheep from the fashion leaders.

It is so important to walk into a store and know what’s you and what isn’t. Being able to define your style helps with this. For me, I know my style is “Edgy Glam” for the most part. I like to blame that on the Gemini in me. Give me feathers, drama, hats, and all things over the top. But I’m very comfortable in my look and style. Maybe a little less being pregnant. Ha! But still you must own your style an individuality. This truly will help you be the best you. Also, with the biggest season of the year looming it’s a really good time to look at the trends, analyze what you love and don’t love. Will you catch me wearing teeny tiny bags or a quilt ensemble? No.

If you take anything away from todays post it’s to let your freak flag fly!

Be you and own it!

The Color of Happy

Ahhh Yellow…

Perfect for any time of year but I love it for Summer and Fall. It’s a color that had become a recent favorite of mine.

Yellow certainly has become popular in the last couple of seasons but sometimes it can feel like a tricky color to wear. Contrary to what Dior is saying I like the brighter tones even though my hair is light. But he is right there’s a color for everyone and it’s about trial and error. Try on all the yellows and see which you like the best.

One no fail way to wear yellow is to pair is with blue. Sticking to opposite sides of the color wheel will always have you looking good.

Grab a statement piece like my blazer. This will surly be on repeat this fall. Pair it with jeans and a white tee. Again, the jeans will look great because of the blues.

If you live in my neck of the woods it’s a pretty gloomy day after the crazy storms last evening but this is the perfect way to bring some sunshine to a not so sunny day.

Have a great start to your week!

Spin It Your Way

Bonjour Friends!

How does it feel like it should be like Thursday by now? Maybe because I have a teething toddler who is just not having it. Anyway, Forth of July Week! I hope that means you get some days off!

This week, Dior’s Dictionary Word is “Collars”. At first I wasn’t all that interested in this word but then I started to think about ways I could really make it my own. Which is what I do with most things but I’m so excited with how I’ve been rocking my collars!

I chose a crisp white collar because to me it felt like a blank canvas that I could do anything to. As I’ve talked about before I loved the fashion in “A Simple Favor” and these looks felt very reminiscent of that style. I certainly agree with Dior that it’s amazing how many collars are out there! They really can make or break a look. But, I will be wearing this top twice, sorry Christian.

Make it your own and put your own spin on fashion!
