Stripes are bold, especially black & white. It takes an average white or black piece and amps up the fashion while still keeping it fairly neutral. Black and white stripes can go with almost any color and can be dressed up or down. Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2013 runway was full of big black&white striped statement pieces.

best way to spend the weekend days = brunch with your besties!
we have a favorite spot downtown with the best food & mimosas. dressing for these kinds of days is fun because there are so many options & pieces you can wear for a full day in the sun!
long casual tank & jean shorts ~ cobalt blue is so in right now!
stacked bracelets & black cross-body bag
printed sundress & a few accessories
studded cross-body bag from Free People & OPI’s Suzi Skiis in the Pyrenees
maxis are the best for a brunch day! easy, cute & comfy.
wear them with a cross-body bag & a statement bracelet for a complete look
cropped tank & printed floral denim shorts! love the outfit, side braid & the bright purple nails, but C, we gotta get you a new bag. that thing’s time is up.
crab cake benedict & mimosas! yummm
one of our friends got uhh.. an interesting breakfast. steak, eggs, potatoes & beer? love ya S but you’re a weirdo!
4th of July is almost here & we are so excited to be on a boat, drinkin’ a beer, and celebrating good ol’ America.
Here’s a step-by-step on how to create your own patriotic shorts!
buy a pair of old jeans from a thrift shop (these are old school Old Navy jean capris from Goodwill)
cut them into shorts ~ make sure not to cut them too short the first time, you can always cut more off later & get the perfect length
fray the bottoms of the shorts to get rid of the straight cut lines
spray paint the left side bright blue
use star stencils (found this sheet at Michael’s)
put the stencils over the blue & spray white. it takes several coats & careful spraying to get perfect stars. as you can see, these aren’t exactly picture perfect, but after a couple tries & coats you’ll get it.
spray paint the right side white
add some red lines & boom! all-American jorts.
you can even use the leftover denim to create a braided bracelet!
happy manicure monday! This week I used Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips. Have you tried Sally Hansen brand strips? What do you think? This pattern was simple enough that it looked okay for work and not too crazy… but it still looked like nail art compared to a normal. plain manicure.
