My Whirlwind Week

So I have been a little MIA from my blog lately.  This week has been one of the craziest, most amazing roller coaster weeks of my life.  My crazy week started on Wednesday when I received news that I got a job I hadn't even applied for.  The thought of starting this job is so exciting, because it's going to allow me to get much needed experience in the field of study that I got my bachelor's degree in.  My first thought was, "Oh My Gosh...What Am I Going To Wear!!!"  Never having had a job like this, I felt extremely unprepared clothing wise.


Fashion A To Z

A - Accessories
Accessories are the glue that hold a look together.  Belts can define a waistline, scarves can add another dimension as a necklace or as part of a top, hats can give a cool edge to an outfit (not to mention cover up a bad hair day), glasses can accentuate and frame the face, and bags and purses function in holding pretty much our life essentials.  Accessories are so versatile and can allow an outfit to be transformed into a wide variety of looks.

B - Budget
This is without a doubt the most important part of building a wardrobe.  It's crucial to be a budget savvy fashionista as to not drive yourself into debt just because you want to get the newest pair of Louboutins.  You never want to spend more than you are capable of maintaining.  In this respect, it is important to set a weekly, monthly and yearly budget to keep yourself on track.

C - Color
People tend to gravitate towards certain colors.  I gravitate towards bright, vibrant colors and warm hues.  Knowing the colors you gravitate towards is important because it allows you to consciously pick colors that you may not otherwise have chosen.  I try to step outside of my comfort zone and take fashion risks whenever I can and color is one of the easiest places to do this.


2013 Spring Style

Spring is just around the corner!  As we set our clocks forward an hour and start the ever popular spring cleaning, it is about time that we begin to think of the styles we want to capture in our wardrobe for the season.  There are a multitude of trends that could be touched on, but I'm just going to focus on a few of my favorites.  This is MY list of some of the hottest spring styles that will be sure to be seen in the upcoming season.  For the most part the items pictured are items that I have or would love to have, and they capture a bit of my own personal style.

Black & White

The Black & White trend might be the biggest trend of the season, probably most notably are the black & white stripes.  Yes, that's right referee style stripes!  So go pull out that old Halloween referee costume you have stuffed in the back of your closet.
