The midi is the new skirt length for the summer. This not loo long, not too short, but just right skirt length can be a casual or dressy look. From work, to weddings, to brunch a midi is the new staple skirt to add to your wardrobe!
With so many options and fabrications to chose from it can be overwhelming to figure out how to begin to incorporate this trend into your existing wardrobe. The great thing about this trend is it can be paired with a variety of different tops, from blouses to crop top t-shirts. It is also a trend that is both heels and flat shoe friendly!
For this post I chose focus on three different skirts and pair them based on a look with a crop top.

Click Image for Details

It’s an easy trend that anyone can incorporate without seeming too addicted to the trend or overly trendy. We will give you 7 examples of how you can rock this bold print trend throughout the week while on vacation or on a stay-cation this summer. Continue Reading

Hey Guys, What’s Your Swimwear Style?

feature image

Swimming. An activity characterized by many as being exhilarating, freeing, or just plain fun. Although summer vacation is almost over for many of us there still is plenty of time to enjoy the beach and heat across the globe.

Some of us take little notices as to what we wear to the pool/beach etc., especially us guys. But there is one thing I can say is that there are certain types of styles certain men gravitate towards. There is the short-short man, the Speedo wearing dude or the long board short traditional lad. I myself fall in between the short-short and board short range. But there isn’t anything wrong with wearing the Speedo if you body is right for it.

Pool Side Fashion

feature image MaraHoffmanSwim2013

I have been going to the pool lately, since the weather has gotten real warm, some days even hot. My little one is taking swimming lessons and so “mama coach” is in effect. lol. So what am I wearing? Leggings, t-shirt, flip flops, sunglasses, sunscreen and a little makeup, especially a pop of colour on the lips.

At her classes, I am carrying a book to read, which is a must because after awhile all you see is a lot of splashing and that’s it…smh. So I was thinking about a nice gear to put together for going to the pool for training with my little one vs. going to the pool in my backyard. What to wear? so this is what I came up with:

 

I really love Mara Hoffman’s pool side/ beach wear. This piece is so beautiful and exotic. Perfect for any pool or sea destination you want to be at.

Dress like You Mean It!

BCBG feature image

Being your best is about giving 100% of yourself, and that’s in mind, body, spirit-emotion. Its all one hundred percent. Too many times as women we place ourselves in the backseat of our appearance (I’ve been guilty of that too), but once you see the affects it does to your mind and spirit, you will really change from doing that- and this is what I have done in my personal life.

I want to dive into the physical aspect of ourselves and that is the Presentation. How you present yourself speaks volumes. How you dress yourself from day to day, shows who you are, how you feel from within about yourself and the environment or space around you.

Dress like you mean it! Continue Reading

It’s going to be a (bright) yellow summer

B1 Image1 feature

Aside from a few sporadic days, teasing us with a taste of what summer might become, the sun has yet to put in a noteworthy appearance. Nevertheless, fashion’s finest delivered a variety of very worthy summer collections, with clashing patterns and bold colours taking precedence. One particular colour that strikes a note for this spring/summer is (bright) yellow.

Sickly neon, bitter-sweet lemon, subtle mustard and bold dandelion are all note-worthy shades. Though be warned if, like me, your skin is suffering the trauma of a frost-bitten winter, try wearing yellow accessories as an accent colour. A fluro yellow clutch and stilettos will add interest to a monochrome dress, plus it is an easy way to work two trends in one outfit.
