Florals for Spring…

Groundbreaking.

There’s no better time for new beginnings like the Springtime. I hope you’re all enjoying the warmer weather here in the Midwest as much as I am!

I would never consider myself a girly girl, hold your scoff. I’m serious – spring is all about color and florals, however those who know me know I would never be caught dead in a pink floral dress and pastel heels. So on that note, here’s how I do spring fashion:

Neutral florals, add some leather and sensible shoes – Spring I’m ready for ya! It’s all about adding a little edge and as always, keeping it real and true to your personal style.

Passion Planner

This agenda has completely changed the way I work, manage my time and think. With hour-by-hour run downs, a personal and work to do list for each week, and monthly reflections and goal planning, I don’t know how I’ve managed without this! I found myself with to-do lists and ideas building up in my mind and in random places in my iPhone. Being able to write everything down not only helps me to literally visualize my week, goals and plans, but it reminds me why I started and where I’m planning on going. PERFECT for recent grads!

6 Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Fall Uniform, Military Jacket

I tend to be more of a uniform dresser, I like to keep it simple and try to purchase items I know I’ll wear and love until their bitter end. Picking out staples for each season can be tricky. You have to decide what is worth the investment and what you know you love, but will probably toss down the road. Here are my signature Fall essentials that get me through the season, the new fall basics that I think every girl should have in their wardrobe:

Fall Essentials, Fringe Booties

1. Military Jackets 2. Fringe Booties 3. Black Ponte Leggings

4. Classic Leather Bag 5. Striped Tops & Sweaters 6. Minimalist, Everyday Jewelry

Simple fall outfit

Trend Spotting: Kimonos

A friend recently came to me perplexed over the trend flooding her Pinterest and Instagram feed over the past year. They’re rocked at festivals, concerts and all over the internet. But how do you wear this trend without looking “basic?” Simple.

Step One: Be original. Stay true to your personal style and don’t over think it.

Step Two: Avoid the costume. Don’t look like a walking Free People ad. (Unless that’s your thing. You do you girl.)

Step Three: Dress it up and down!

Here are three ways I love to wear mine! 

Throw it over a dress:

OrangeDressWhiteKimono

OrangeDressCloseUp

OrangeDressFull

Got denim and a white tee? Just add bling!:

Give it an edge! Layer a band tee and some leather:
