REMAINING NEUTRAL ...

HELLO LADIES! WITH THE 1ST OFFICIAL DAY OF SPRING ONLY 3 DAYS AWAY, I KNOW WE'RE ALL ITCHING TO ADD SOME NEW SPRING TRENDS TO OUR WARDROBES! BEFORE YOU GO START SPENDING ALL THAT HARD EARNED MONEY ON PASTELS AND FLORAL PRINTS, TAKE A MOMENT AND THINK NEUTRAL. DO YOU HAVE ALL YOUR BASICS? 
NEUTRALS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR ANY WARDROBE, AND CAN BE WORN DURING ANY SEASON BECAUSE THEY CAN BE PAIRED WITH ANYTHING. FIGURING OUT WHICH NEUTRAL TONES YOU LOOK BEST IN IS THE KEY. AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS BELOW, IV'E CREATED AN ENTIRE OUTFIT BASED AROUND MY FAVORITE NEUTRAL TONES! HAVE FUN SHOPPING!

BEST IN THE WEST

HI GUYS! IM BACK WITH PT.2 OF MY WESTERN VIBES POST! WE'RE SEEING THIS TREND CONTINUE ON FROM FALL /WINTER 2014 AND INTO SPRING 2015, WHICH MAKES ME OH SO HAPPY! THE KEY TO THIS NAILING THIS TREND IS THIS: DON'T OVER COMMIT! DON'T GO ALL IN! THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS SOME COWGIRL GETUP COMPLETE WITH MORE RHINESTONES THAN A 6 YEAR OLD GIRL WHO JUST GOT HER HANDS ONE A BEDAZZLING GUN! INSTEAD, TRY ADDING A COUPLE UNDERSTATED PIECES TO YOUR OUTFIT THAT ARE WESTERN OR NATIVE AMERICAN INSPIRED, LIKE I HAVE SHOWN BELOW WITH MY CLUTCH. IT BOLDLY SHOWCASES AZTEC COLORS AND GEOMETRIC PRINTS. OR TAKE MY WIDE BRIMMED FEDORA. THE MATERIAL IS 100% WOOL AND DETAILED WITH LEATHER TRIM. IT ADDS A TON OF WESTERN CHARACTER TO THE HAT. LASTLY WE HAVE THE SILVER STATEMENT NECKLACE WITH FRINGE COIN DETAILING. ARE YOU CATCHING MY VIBE? ALL THESE PIECES PLAY OFF EACH OTHER, BUT NONE ARE TOO OVERWHELMING! I HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS WHILE YOUR TRYING TO STYLE OUT YOUR NEXT OUTFIT!

WESTERN VIBES ...

ONE OF THE BIGGEST TRENDS MAKING IT'S WAY INTO THE FASHION SCENE THIS SPRING IS BOHO/WESTERN WEAR! AS I TYPE THIS I WONDER, DID I MISS SOMETHING? DID WESTERN INSPIRED WEAR EVER REALY GO OUT OF STYLE? NOT FOR ME IT DIDN'T! I'D LIKE TO THINK I WAS JUST WAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE ON THIS ONE, BUT IN ALL REALITY I LIVE IN UTAH- SO ROUND HERE IT'S ANYTHING BUT OUT OF THE ORDINARY TO ADD SOME TYPE OF WESTERN FLAIR TO OUR OUTFITS. :) I'M ENTERING INTO SPRING FULLY PREPARED AND OVERLY EXCITED TO WRAP MYSELF WITH BOHEMIAN FLORALS, TURQUOISE JEWELRY, FRINGE DETAILS, AND SUEDE BOOTIES. OH AND THE HAT'S!!! THOSE ARE THE BEST PART! GOOD THING I PICKED UP THIS BUFFALO COIN GEM IN JACKSON LAST MONTH- JUST IN TIME TO ROCK THE WESTERN MOVEMENT!
