How to Go With the Flow - Sexy and Relaxed.

Are you dreaming of warm weather and all the fun clothes you'll finally be able to wear after this torturous winter? I've already decided I want to live in maxi skirts this spring and summer. Here's how I'm planning to style those flattering, flowing, skirts: 

If you're wearing a patterned maxi like this one, I recommend pairing it with a solid color top and some great jewelry to spice it up. I hinted at the chevron pattern by accessorizing with the little yellow Chevron Necklace, which visually brings the outfit together.

Don't over do it on too many patterns or layers at once. My trick is to only have one pattern piece and keep the rest simple. This lets each piece sing and keeps the overall appearance beautiful, not distracting. 

What's going to be your summer go-to this year? 

 

Minimalist with a Twist

What do you think of when you hear "minimalist" to describe style? Boring? Plain? Monochrome?  Minimalism in fashion can be profound. Keeping things clean and simple can really let the thoughtfulness and detail shine through. How would you describe your fashion?

While there are different definitions of minimalism in fashion, here, we're talking about visual impact, not amount of things owned. For this look, we want to keep it simple by using a select few colors: black, white, cobalt, and yellow (we're a little color obsessed here, so it can't be all black and white).
