Spring 2014 Must-Have Item: The White Jacket

Spring’s hottest trending item right now is the white jacket. Bloggers and other fashion-forward ladies are throwing white jackets over anything; tank tops and jeans (like me!), dresses, sweaters… everything! It’s a quick & easy way to brighten up your wardrobe, and look super-chic at the same time. Oh, and it helps you STAY WARM, because it’s spring, lol – still crisp and cool in my neck of the woods! I picked up this faux-leather jacket at Forever 21 for under $30. Love it!

What an Arm Party looks like to my 9-yr-old and her BFF!

Ettika’s Arm Party Contest and WIN $100!

Ettika jewelry is launching TWO new contests this month! I’m super excited – LOVE their beautiful, creative, stackable bracelets! For the first contest, they have asked fans to post photos that define what an arm party means to them. I immediately thought of my little girl, whose creativity and unbridled fun with fashion daily inspires me. Her BFF was over for a play date, so I asked them, “What would an arm party look like to you girls? Show me!”

Winter Whites; Who Says You Can’t?

The traditional fashion rule of not wearing white between Labor Day and Memorial Day most likely dates back to the early 1900′s. Fashionistas through the ages have questioned and challenged this “rule,” because 1) we like to question rules, and 2) no one to date has provided any solid evidence of this rule’s origin, or that it’s really even a RULE! We all just know it, right? Like cleanliness is next to Godliness, and we shouldn’t throw babies out with bathwater…

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Recently I received a beautiful gift: this burnt vintage ribbon Dove bracelet, from Ettika.com. I adore pretty little things, and fell so in love with it’s versatility and girliness, I wanted to style an entire outfit around it. I chose a look that was modern, but with a touch of vintage, pairing an outfit from LOFT with this stunning vintage jacket I found at Serendipity Boutique in Boise! (Look for my store review of this lovely little place and it’s unique story, coming soon!)

Kicking Winter’s Butt!

I grew up around the Seattle area, with rainy-but-mild winters and few excursions to snow. They say in Seattle, if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes! A typical winter outfit would consist of easily-shed-able layers; t-shirt, sweater, jacket, another jacket, scarf… You might start out with all the layers, shed most of them by mid-day, and then be back in them by sundown – unpredictable Seattle weather means being ready for anything. And always carry an umbrella.

Keep Warm & Carry On

My motto this winter: Keep Warm and Carry On. Seriously not easy sometimes, but I do my best to keep rocking my style, until temperatures drop into single digits. Then all bets are off, and I’m wearing a sleeping bag to the grocery store, I don’t care!!!

Winter Pastels from Vault Denim & New York & Company

Every winter, as the weather cools down, I pull out all my dark clothes. Dark sweaters, dark skirts, dark jeans, black boots, dreary coats… It’s the same thing, every year! This winter, as 2013 rolls into a new year of optimism and possibility, I decided I wasn’t feeling the somber vibe of years past.

How to Make 10 Dollars Look Like a Million Bucks

Who wears a $10 dress on television? This girl. Especially when that $10 dress looks like it cost so much more! Can you believe it? I scored this lovely little lacy number at Forever 21, when I was looking for something to wear on my Fashion Makeover segment for KTVB Ch. 7 News. (More on that HERE, with Before & After video and pictures!) So what makes a $10 dress work?
