When to Wear Mules

When to Wear Mules (5)Mules have been a popular trend for a minute now and I just can’t get enough of them lately. This is definitely one shoe trend you don’t want to miss out on. To make sure you don’t miss any styling opportunity, here are 5 times that you can be putting your best mule wearing foot forward and rocking one of our favorite shoe trends.

When You Are Out To Enjoy The Day…When to Wear MulesHeeled mules literally elevate your style. Dresses and a simple laser cut mule go perfectly together for days out exploring the city and trying out that new totally instagramable coffee shop. I love a good pair of heeled mules with a midi dress, or actually any dress ever, you absolutely can’t go wrong with a pair of heeled mules and a dress.

When You Have Things To Get Done…When to Wear Mules (1)When I run errands, I know there is a 90% possibility that I will run into someone that I kind-of-sorta-know but definitely have to say hi to, when that happens I like to look somewhat presentable. Mules are ideal to throw on with your distressed jeans and your favorite comfy shirt. With this outfit combination you can fool everyone into thinking you’re the kind of girl who is fashionable and has time to buy a gallon of milk. Your new secret is safe here.

When You Are Out On The Town…When to Wear Mules (2)Its girls night and you have the perfect outfit and now you’ll have the perfect pair of shoes to match. Mules are so durable and totally dance friendly with a nice stacked heel. So go ahead and grab that romper and mules and be prepared to outshine your friends in all the group pictures tonight, girl.

When You Mean Business…When to Wear Mules (3)When you are at work its essential to have a shoe that keeps you comfy till 5pm rolls around. Mules are necessary for work because of their no back design. You won’t ever get that restrained feeling that other shoes tend to have. Again another simple put together look, just grab your basic black pants, a structured top, and you’re out the door on the way to grab your coffee.  You’ll be contently comfy the whole day at work, so you can focus on looking cute, getting your work done, and looking cute.

When You Would Rather Be On Vacation…

When to Wear Mules (4)One of the cool things about the mule shoe is that they can be a casual shoe as well. Throw them on with your beach lounge pants and instantly be the beach boho babe you know you were meant to be!

Dresses, and rompers, and jumpsuits.. Oh my!

So many new arrivals have been hitting in stores and online and it is SO hard to narrow them down.  However, basics, stripes, and floral prints seem to be the name of the game. Three of our new favorite dresses are the Amuse Society Clothing Bohemian Rhapsody Maxi Dress, the Love Stitch Clothing Denim Stripe Dress, and the Wild Honey Palm Print Dress! These scream summer and are super fun pieces for your next adventure!

Rompers and jumpsuits have also been our go-to this Spring. They are super comfy and versatile, so they are easy to just slip on and go! You can dress them down with sandals or sneakers ,or dress them up with a pair of your favorite heels or wedges! Some of our new favorites are the Anama Clothing Twist Front Jumper, the Elan Strappy Surplice Jumper, and the Everly Clothing Peplum Windowpane Romper! With the simple designs and solid colors, these pieces are great to add your own twist with unique accessories!

You can never have too many pairs of shoes; they are just a continuous way of life. This season, we are focusing on mules and flatflorm slides! They are classy, cute, versatile, and elevate your favorite looks! Qupid Shoes have multiple mules and slides to choose from, and we love everything they throw our way! With simple designs and neutral coloring, they offer flats and heels so you are destined to find the pair that suits you.  Some of our favorites include the Mia Shoes Saige Banded Platform Sandals, the Qupid Shoes Jaden Ruched Mules, the Report Shoes Ryder Heeled Mules, the Soda Shoes Coxy Cross Slides, and the NYLA Shoes Thing 1 Flatform Sandals.  (See, we told you shoes are hard to narrow down!)

Add On Accessories!

Accessories have also become a huge focus in trending fashion.  Pieces that are neutral and versatile seem to be what all the talk is about! Bralettes are still a completely necessary and trending piece for your year round wardrobe. We know we always talk about them, but that’s just how important we think they are! Another new item we recently received are Teleties! These hair ties are so fashionable and can be worn as bracelets when they are not being used for a pain- and kink-free ponytail.  And since you will need a stylish bag to hall of your daily necessities around in, a straw bag is just what you need for the season! We received this straw handbag from Caroline Hill and immediately got heart eyes! (Hint Hint: Your closet needs this bag too.)

The Perfect New Year’s Eve Outfit

2017

How are you celebrating New Year’s Eve this year? Whether you are going out with your best friends or staying at home with your loved ones, it’s always fun to dress up! Although glitter is a girl’s best friend, we are straying away from the sparkly look this year. We are ringing in the New Year with some of 2016’s favorite trends, such as the cold shoulder, criss-cross necklines, peep toed booties and choker necklaces.

New Year's Eve Outfit 1

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #1:

Step into 2017 with the latest fashions. We took our Elan Cold Shoulder Striped Dress and paired it with Jessica Simpson Peep Toe Booties for an effortless look that everyone will love! Complete your outfit with a Kendra Scott necklace.

Now that your outfit is covered, let’s talk about hair and make-up! No matter what length of hair you have, beach waves are always a good idea. Grab your curling wand and add some loose curls to that beautiful hair of yours. Top your look off with a smoky-eye and some red lipstick.

New Year's Eve Outfit 2

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #2:

Perfect for a night out with the girls, this BB Dakota fur vest will leave you looking remarkable this New Year’s Eve. We layered this beautiful vest over a Wishlist Criss-Cross Sweater and a pair of black Flying Monkey Jeans. Keep the choker trend going by adding a Pink Pewter Choker necklace to your outfit.

Keeping the hair and make-up simple will do the trick for this look. A low pony and your favorite studs is all you will need. Adding shimmery eye shadow and nude lipstick will give this natural look a little sass!

New Year's Eve Outfit 3

NEW YEAR’S Eve OUTFIT #3:

Looking for the perfect New Year’s Eve dress? We have you covered. This Lime N Chili Lace Up Dress will be the prefect little black dress for the perfect evening! We’ve paired this Lace Up Dress with Jessica Simpson booties and a Pink Pewter Choker Necklace, that can also play the role of a head band. This look will have everyone’s heads turning!

Now that your outfit is on point, let’s make your hair and make-up just as pretty! A half up top knot messy bun with a few curls will do the trick to complete this look. Adding a smoky eye and a soft pink lipstick will leave you looking flawless all night!

It’s Sweater Weather Y’all

elan-cold-shoulder-sweater-gray-sw1506There is something about fall and the weather changing that just makes us want to dress for the season. Maybe it’s the leaves on the ground or the chili mornings that makes us wake up and sip on our hot coffee. Either way, we will most likely be wearing a sweater!

This year it is all about the chunky, oversized sweaters. Stay trendy this season by trying different necklines with your sweaters. Some of our favorite necklines this year include cowl, turtleneck, keyhole, and crisscross. Another trend that is hot this season is the cold shoulder and off the shoulder look. Although it’s not ideal for the colder weather, it is an adorable look that you just can’t pass up!

The Chunky Sweaterunspecified

The bigger the better! We all have our favorite sweaters and a chunky sweater is mine! Something about the oversized fit that just makes wearing chunky cable knit sweaters that much more comfortable. These oversized sweaters are perfect for pairing with your favorite skinny jeans. Take comfy to an extreme and wear it with leggings this season! Stay trendy and try a little half tuck in the front of your skinny jeans for a chic look that shows off the waist definition.

The Cowl Neck Sweatercarys-fringe-sweater

Sometimes the big chunky sweaters aren’t for everyone! You can always try a lightweight sweater that features different necklines. One of my favorite necklines is the cowl neck. The cowl neck is loose and breathable which is the perfect mix of laid-back and trendy.

The Cold Shoulder Sweaterelan-cold-shoulder-life-sw1210-charcoal

Don’t let the cold stop you from being trendy this season! Cold shoulder tops are a hot item this year and they have now made it in a sweater. My favorite cold shoulder sweater this year is from Elan. It features a lightweight knit material that is flowy making the perfect fit for anyone! Cold shoulder sweaters are perfect for the transition from season to season. Add one to your closet TODAY!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Three Rompers to Rock This Spring

Rompers are a must have for spring and they are quickly becoming my favorite go to outfit for a night out or if I’m just meeting a friend for lunch and shopping.  Their versatility makes them easy to dress up or down, depending on what you are doing or where you are going.

Here are 3 of my favorite styles:

Angie Clothing Paisley Romper

summer-rompers

spring-rompers

fringe-wedges

This is the perfect style to wear out to dinner or to take with you on a tropical getaway.   It looks great styled with a simple necklace and fringe wedge sandals.  I love the fact that this black romper has a romantic flowy fit.  In my opinion, the loose fit makes gives this cute romper a universal figure flattering look.  I think this would make a great Valentine’s Day outfit <3

Elan Clothing Floral Print Romper

elan-clothing-rompers

floral-romper

black-lace-up-flats

If I was going to Coachella, this is the romper I would wear.  Hands down. Festival season is coming and rompers are the perfect outfit to wear while people watching and listening to great music.  The option are limitless with this style, but I like it best paired with black lace up ballet flats and a long necklace.

Ellison Denim Romper

denim-romper

white-converse-womens

This denim romper is definitely the most casual of the three, but still one of my favorites.  It would be perfect to wear while running errands and grabbing a coffee with a friend.  You can definitely dress this romper up, but I love how it looks styled with white Converse and a boho headband for an every day look.
