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? 

 

Black Orchid - comfortable, casual, polished

What do you think of when I say "comfortable wear?" Sweats? T-shirt and jeans? I love that comfortable doesn't have to mean any less put-together. The trick is to wear pieces that feel good and make you feel good. Keeping it simple, with a classic combinations and colors, makes casual chic comfy. 

With 2014's "color of the year," being vibrant orchid, it's fitting to spice up the nails accordingly. Where would you wear this outfit?
