Bootie, Bootie, Bootie

The fabulous ladies of #trendingacrosstypes are back in action with a fun styling of booties! The white bootie trend is here and we couldn’t miss out on style some looks with them for y’all!

Fall Bootie Styled

When we picked these white booties [PS y’all know I have a thing for a good fall bootie] I knew I wanted a bold pop of color to pair with them. On to the the internet I went to find a fun color block sweater. Nordstrom had the answer with this super cute one and I really loved the colors.

Fall Bootie Styled

The sweater is lightweight and with the pinks I knew would transition well into spring [just like the white booties]. What I didn’t realize was that it was a cropped fit… was my postpartum body ready for this? I actually sent Monica a super awkward video of me wearing it because I felt so unsure. I love how it felt and the colors but on body I didn’t know if I could pull it off.

Monica reassured me I looked good and to just rock some high waisted jeans! So I swallowed my fear and decided to go for it because THIS is what this group is about; rocking trends for ALL ages and body types. #styleforanyage

So here I am sporting the crop with a bit of a front tuck and you know what?! I’m so glad I did it because I love the colors and how the whole look came together! I can’t wait to style these pieces throughout winter and early spring! So stay tuned on my IG and see where these looks pop up or follow me on Liketoknow.it!

Make sure to check out Laura and Monica to see how they styled their booties! AND stay tuned for several more exciting collabs we have over the next few months!

Blazer Series: Part 2

 

 

Since I started this series I decided I should publish a little “How to” for blazers.  They are so versatile but sometimes that can be really overwhelming when creating an outfit.  So here ya go!

Step One: Blazing it up. Find a great structured blazer.  If you don’t have one already I would recommend black or navy as they are very neutral and can go with many blouse options.

Step Two: Top of your game. A soft blouse/ t-shirt or sleeveless shirt to go under the blazer. For a more casual occasion I go with a plain t-shirt and for a dressier occasion a blouse. Feel free to spice it up with a pattern or a bright color! Just remember your shoes and accessories will need to compliment one another.

Step Three: A mean jean. A well fitting pair of jeans.  Remember jeans can be colored or regular.  Whatever you feel most comfortable in or whatever color is suiting your mood! I prefer a dark wash denim with my black blazer. It gives it that dressed up crisp look. But when I am going more casual a light wash jean is my “go-to”.

Step Four: Pump it up.  A nice pump really helps balance the jean and blazer look.  Gives you classy and edgy look. Go for a fun color (magenta) or pattern (leopard)!

Step Five: Bling, Bling.  A statement necklace is the icing on this outfit.  If you haven’t gone bold with your shoes, or top here is where you can make your impact.

Step Six: Show em’ what you got.  Have fun in your new outfit!

The fall temps are here and I am loving it [for the most part]! I am on the Fort Worth Jingle Bell Run Committee and we had a walk through for our event.  This event is near and dear to my heart because it raises money and awareness for the Arthritis Foundation.  Many people in my family YOUNG and old suffer from this debilitating disease and this event helps raise funds for research to help find relief and cures [there are over 100 different diseases that fall under the “arthritis” umbrella]!

 

Anyways I was feeling festive and so I decided to wear this bright red sweater.  I don’t tend to wear a lot of red because of my hair but pairing it with plaid really makes me feel cozy and in the Christmas spirit!

Mustard Madness: Part 1

In Texas this time of year is transition.  Some days are cool some days are warm.  One of my favorite colors during this is mustard.  It is so Fall like but works really well with brighter colors and other fall colors.  It is also a little unexpected which I love!

Copy Cat

With the warm weather starting to show its face, I was inspired by a pair of Tori Burch wedges I saw the other day.  WIth that being said I also think that sometimes we can “splurge” but other times we need to be economical.  So I have made a “look” that doesn’t think about cost and a copy cat look that is ALL FROM TARGET!  Let me know what you think!

They both have a day look top and a night on the town top.  I think it is great to build versatile outwits that are comfy but can go from day to night!
