Bright Spring Style Beginning the Week

Do you work from home? (Stay-at-home mom counts as working from home, in my opinion!) Some friends think that because I work from home, surely I live in  pajamas. Not the case! In fact, I'd never get a thing done if I wore lounging gear all day. I treat working for myself seriously, and although I don't have to meet with clients in person, waking up and getting dressed nicely sets a tone for the day. Even if it's casual, it's important to feel great in what you wear. I love dressing up classics and neutrals with pops of colorful accessories.

Plus, as a jewelry designer and maker, how am I going to make awesome jewelry in my pjs? I want my customers to feel expressive and inspired in their style. No yawns here. 

So what about you? What are your tips for feeling great when perhaps no one else will see/appreciate your style other than you today? Whether it's yoga pants or jeans, rock it! And I hope you have a super beginning to your week ! xo

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?
