Fashion Friday – Little White Dress

Little White Dress

The summer months bring out the dresses, and in particular the Little White Dress.  As with the staple Little Black Dress, it also can easily be dressed up or dressed down for whatever the occasion.  This is where your style personality can shine!  Add leather, denim, jewels, flats or heels, your canvas is set for you to make this look your own.

White Maxi Skirt

In my case, I do not own a white dress, but I do have a white maxi skirt!  Because I love getting the maximum usage out of my wardrobe, I thought to turn the skirt into a dress.  Add a denim vest, cinch in the waist with a rope belt, and complete the look with a comfortable pair of stylish wedges!  The creative options are endless when it comes to a Little White Dress!

Manicure Monday – #ThrowbackThursdays

Jamberry Nails Sunset Ombre and Summer SunburstJamberry Nails Sunset Ombre and Summer Sunburst

Did you know that Jamberry Nails is bringing back retired designs throughout the summer twice a month for a limited time?  It’s my delight to participate in offering these “throwback” styles!  Some of these designs I missed out entirely because they debuted before I became a Consultant.  So you can imagine how thrilled I am to be able to snatch up these once “vaulted” looks!!

Jamberry Nails Sunset Ombre and Summer Sunburst

Today I’m featuring the current #ThrowbackThursday designs, Sunset Ombre and Summer Sunburst.  These two nail wraps compliment each other so well; a perfect Summer mani/pedi combo!

But as with all the Summer Throwbacks, these designs are around for a limited time.  In fact, today is the last day to order these 2 designs.  If you’d like to participate in a bulk order I’m placing today for my customers, please contact me.  You will receive yours FREE of SHIPPING (mailing within the USA)!!

Stay tuned for future retired wraps to be revealed for limited time purchase!  Anyone looking for a particular design from the past?

Invested

White jeansI’m “invested” in getting the most out of my wardrobe, and turned one of my favorite dresses into a vest. This clearance purchase from last year has been one of the most versatile in my wardrobe.  I’m looking forward to wearing it as a dress or cover-up this summer!  Here are some previous ways I’ve worn this chameleon chambray piece.

Where you invest your love, you invest your life.

 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.  And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”  Colossians 3:12-14

Manicure Monday – In the Garden

Garden Manicure

Spring is all about being outdoors, enjoying the longer days, and letting our toes out!  Which means cute pedicures and coordinating manicures!!  I love how my friend, Heather, expressed her personal style with this Spring combo.  And proof that these nail wraps can last, just check out her gardening hands!

There are key pieces to a wardrobe that can transcend the trends of time.  One of those key pieces is the denim jacket.  If I had to pick a few articles of clothing that were a “must have”, this would be one.  Another transitional garment is the black t-shirt dress.  Worn alone with sandals, layered here with skinnies, this basic dress can be a perfect packing item when you want various looks with minimum articles to pack.  Third, is the skinny jean.  Now this jean cut doesn’t seem to be heading out any time soon, as we see jeggings of the sort in all stores.  It is my go-to pant when heading out the door just out of sheer comfort and versatility.

When these pieces are all worn together it may just seem a tad boring or well, basic.  Add your personal touch with your favorite bootie or hat, signature jewels, plus that customized manicure and you’ve got a style you can call your own!  So all this to say, while basic may be basic…these pieces stand through the timelines, unclutter the closet, and serve as the backdrop to your creative styling!

I must also mention that Jamberry loves to support charities such as the American Red Cross with the Heart Health Awareness mixed manicure worn by celebrities during New York Fashion week for the Red Dress event.  This design will be gone May 1st.
