Coachella

Once again, I am back from a mini hiatus, but this spring will be full of many fabulous, fashionable posts.  Both Coachella weekends have come to an end and it was not only an incredible time for music, but also for fashion.  Sadly, I did not make it to Coachella this year (and I am slightly depressed about it) so this post is dedicated to the stylish women of Coachella.  This has been a confusing and chilly spring thus far and I don’t know about you but I am seriously ready to break out the cropped tops, minis, and jean shorts! Festival style is the perfect teaser for summer style!

Nothing better than leather in 100 degree heat.  But really she does look fabulous!

Psych Out

I know I already dedicated a post to psychedelic prints, but I just can’t get enough.  Psychedelic prints were everywhere this summer and have gracefully transitioned to the winter months bringing a playful brightness to the chilly and sometimes gloomy days of winter.  I am completely in love with the dress featured in today’s post because it is eye catching and incredibly versatile.  Its semi conservative above the knee hemline allows this dress to easily transition from day to night, making it a go to when I have a busy day and busy night ahead of me.  While the bold print tends to dominate at first glance the accessories cannot be ignored!  I accented this kaleidoscope frock with classic yet wonderfully sparkly baubles from my favorite local jewelry designer, Fornash.

This winter embrace the bold and  don’t shy away from color!

Silky Scarves

Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year!  I love the crispness in the air, the smell of people starting to use their fireplaces, and of course fall fashion!  Nothing is better than throwing on a scarf, a light jacket, or a cozy sweater!  I must say, a good scarf is absolutely my favorite!  If DC didn’t get so damn hot in the summer, I would live in scarves year round.  So obviously this is an exciting time of year for me and it was made even more exciting by this gorgeous Echo Design scarf!  I love a bold scarf and this silk scarf is the definition of bold luxury that can literally be worn with everything!  I am obsessed with the bright colors and truly believe that a scarf is not only practical, but also an integral part of each ensemble and must be treated as such!  When donning a scarf make sure that it elevates your look, play with fabrics (I am loving that this scarf is silk, especially because it is so comfortable, lush and versatile), textures, sizes, and of course colors.  So how will you be rocking scarves this season?

The colorful pattern increases the scarf’s wearability.

This is a pretty straight forward look that is really all about the scarf. I always say accessories change everything!

A Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes

The printed pant is absolutely everything right now!  I won’t go as far as to say a bold print is the new neutral, because that is simply ridiculous, but I will say a bold print is the new black and an important investment piece.  The kaleidoscope and psychedelic prints have taken over the print scene and add a fabulous thematic touch to each look.  This photo shoot was done on the volcanic beaches of the Big Island of Hawaii, which acted as the most beautiful backdrop yet!  The only way to stand out from this gorgeous backdrop was to go bold and embrace the psychedelic print.  I am a huge advocate of prints and truly believe prints are a necessary closet staple.  Invest and experiment!

Crop Tops for Days

Dare to bare in this week’s trend, the ultra fabulous crop top!  Crop tops are everywhere this season and at first, I must admit I was a little nervous about them, but now I am in love and cannot get enough.  I try to incorporate a crop top into as many ensembles as possible, which is tricky (and not quite appropriate) considering the dress code at my office is business casual.  But I digress, I fully appreciate the initial hesitation with crop tops, but this trend is a summer must that I encourage everyone to experiment with.  There are different levels of midriff to bare and so many looks that can be achieved with this trend.  Make it your own and have fun with it!

How to Rock a Head Scarf

Wondering how to spice up your summer wardrobe?  I have the easiest solution for you….the head scarf!  Accessories are not only an essential finishing touch, they are also the easiest way to transform any look.  Head scarves are wonderful because they can help tame any hair do while adding boldness to the ensemble.  I have very thick unruly hair so anything to help me control it in the humid summer heat is my friend.  When picking a head scarf go for bold colors and prints and allow it to be the statement piece of your outfit. Embrace, experiment and tell me how you are going to rock a head scarf this summer!
