WHITES & STRIPES

So today’s look is simplistic and sophisticated. I am always a fan of breaking out a white pant way before memorial day and love this distressed pair from Gap {also seen here + here}. I paired it with a striped button down, some leopard pumps {best purchase ever!}, and a gold clutch from Tory Burch. I love the versatility of this look and how easy it is to put together using classic staples. Hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for following along! xo

SEAMED VS. SEAMLESS BRAS WITH WACOAL

Today I’m talking all about bras. Gone are the days of limited choices when it comes to these undergarments. You can now stroll into a department store and spend hours perusing racks with so many choices out there! Strapless, convertible, seamed, hot pink, leopard, lace…how’s a girl to choose?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the options, it’s best to go back to the basics. First decided what kind of structure you need. Are you looking for a seamed bra that will provide extra support? Or a seamless bra that will look fab under your slouchy tees and tanks? I’ve teamed up with SheKnows and Wacoal to break it down for you so let’s take a look at the pros of each option so you can decide:

STREET STYLE // POPS OF COLOR

Spring has sprung so it’s time to break out all that color! I realize it is snowing here today in Chicago {eeeek!}, but I’m still going to talk about adding some P.O.C. to your look. I personally love incorporating it with a dress, skirt, handbag, or shoe. How should we style it?  Pair your vibrant hues with statement necklaces, and more neutral tones so that the color can shine. I say stick with solids for this one and the brighter, the better! Get some more ideas below with some pinspiration from the best of the best.
