When we were brainstorming for the March Shoplindsey x Beau & Arrow collection, I knew that I wanted to add a Kimono to the line. My Pinterest Board is full of different ways to style them and my online carts all over the internet have a Kimono in each one! I love how by just adding a fun printed kimono you can change the entire style of a look. You can dress it up with a monochromatic base, heels and statement jewelry or throw it on over distressed jeans, a white tee, and your favorite mules.
If you read my post where I shared my goals for 2018, you know that my one of my BIG goals for was starting (again) and sticking to BBG. Keeping to my ‘word’ of Fulfillment, Im happy to report that I am 7 weeks in and still at it! Every week me and one of my besties, Lauren, are working through our 12 week training and keeping each other accountable. Honestly, most days I don’t feel like working out (I’m not one of those people that love it), but I also know I have a friend waiting for my text once it has been completed. Accountability is huge for me to meet this goal… also huge (and this is so silly, but so true) workout clothes. Ugh, Im almost embarrassed to type that, but it’s such a big motivator for me! Why? I’m not sure. Maybe it’s the Stylist in me. I get excited about new clothes and can’t wait to wear them. It truly gives my workout a boost!
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to Style my favorite Springs looks at an event with Kate Spade Woodland Hills. Kate Spade is celebrating this year with a ‘Trip Across America’. Each month they release a new collection, with a new area in mind. The girls at the Woodland Hills store put together the cutest New Orleans Bayou Brunch, complete with a jazz band playing ‘When the Saints Come Marching In’ and King Cake!
First, Happy Valentine’s Day, sweet friends! I hope that your day is filled to the brim with lots of love and happiness! AND I hope you have plans to celebrate! We, do not! What are your big plans for Valentine’s Day? I would love to hear! Im hoping we can sneak a little date night in this weekend, but Im guessing by now most of our favorite restaurants are full of reservations! I may need to sit down and figure that out today! Which brings me to my next question… who plans your date nights? I’m normally the planner. We always talk about what we want to do or where we want to go together, but when it comes to reservations and babysitters, its all me (which Im totally fine with because I am the “I have to know what is happening-do not keep surprises from me- type of planner!). Im just curious to know who plans your date nights?
I don’t know if you are keeping track, but Valentine’s day is NEXT week! I’m flying in at the last minute to share a few of my favorite Valentine’s Day picks for that man in your life! If you missed my Valentines Day Gift Guide for Her, you can find that here.
Valentines Day Guide Guide for Him
When the girls from Red Dress Boutique reached out to me about doing a collaboration, I was thrilled! I remember watching them on TV when they were pitching their idea on Shark Tank. And I have been following their journey every since! I was so thankful they contact me! I was able to pick a few pieces to wear and style for you all and this dress was my top pick! How gorgeous is this color?! And those sleeves?! (I’ve never met a ruffle I didn’t like!) I love it paired with my turquoise ‘Cece’ earrings from Stella & Dot. A perfect color combo. They were made for each other!
Welcome to the very first post of our new series, How To Style! As a Stylist, one of the biggest requests I receive from friends, family, and clients is; ‘How do I wear this?’. It’s one of my favorite questions to answer, because it gives me a chance to really show my clients, not only how to style a piece, but also how to make pieces in their closet go further. If you’ve been around for a while, you know I love remixing my wardrobe. It helps curve my shopping habit, but it also allows me to be creative. My goal with this new series is to also help you make your closet work for you. I hope to give you tips and ideas that are both attainable and fun!
How To Style: The Black Turtleneck
If there is one piece that has been working overtime in my wardrobe this winter,
Believe it or not, Valentines Day is right around the corner! I thought it would be fun to round up a few of my favorite things that are on my Valentines Day list this year! Honestly, Brian and I have never been big gift givers. We’re terrible at keeping secrets from each other and usually end up either spilling the beans or buying our own gifts (Is it technically still a gift if you buy it for yourself?!).
This years list is a mix of practical everyday needs and luxury must haves. From my favorite moisturizer to delicate diamonds, this list has a little something for everyone!
Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her
Is there anything better than pulling on your favorite cozy sweater and stepping out into the crisp, Fall air? If you’re asking me, the answer will always be no. I absolutely love when the seasons change and the cold air moves in. There is nothing better. Since I’ve been soaking up all this Fall weather, I have also been on a serious sweater kick lately and Im not apologizing! I thought it would be fun to round up a few of my favorite sweaters for you all!
I picked this sweater up at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago and have probably worn it once a week since then! It is so soft, the color is amazing and I can’t say no to a statement sleeve! I wore this outfit to church and after lunch had Brian snap a few photos of me so I could share it here. It is a must for all of us! It comes in 4 colors and is under $30! Praise hands! I’ve styled it so many ways, since purchasing.
