My Monday Must Have…

My obsession with the fisherman sweater started way back…when my mom hand knitted a gorgeous button up wool version for my father! I realized how cool it was to rock his oversized sweater with my broken in Levi’s, and Timberlands boots (it was the early 80’s give me a break here)! My obsession resurfaced on a recent buying trip were I had the pleasure of meeting the Branigan’s, a father and son duo straight from Ireland, who are manufacturer’s of hand-woven capes, sweaters, and other yummy wool pieces straight from the Emerald Isle. My chat with the Branigan’s gave me a full history of the fisherman sweater…the wool kept the fisherman warm and dry, the waters were rough and often these men were lost at sea and their sweaters helped identify who they were as each family had their own stitch! This only made me appreciate these sweaters that much more. Sooo…my Monday Must Have…A fisherman Sweater! But no longer the kind you pair with jeans (well still love that look!). But let’s take it up a notch!

Spring Wardrobe Essentials

When working with clients my job is to help them build a wardrobe that is complete and multi-functional. Finding pieces that are essential to creating the perfect closet! So here is a list to help you create the perfect wardrobe for this Spring…Spring Wardrobe Essentials;
A denim jacket: Looks great with a skirt, or over a dress.
A well fitted blazer to dress up a simple white t-shirt and distressed jeans!
A white t-shirt: Everyone should own a few, at least.
A chambray or denim button down shirt: Great for pairing with a skirt, a dress, or as a layering piece on those cooler Spring days.
A pencil skirt: Especially in a fabulous color! Pencil skirts are universally flattering on most body types and can be dressed up or dressed down!
Distressed Jeans: Distressed denim is so in this year! It will make you look current and relevent.
A great fitting dress: Not in black! I particularly love this off-white, curve hugging one! An easy dress to wear to a spring event or on a hot date!
A cardigan: Especially in a vibrant color or two! It can be layered over a basic tee, paired with a pencil skirt, or used to wear over a dress!
A basic trench coat: Will make you look stylish and pulled together on those rainy days!
The perfect fitting t-shirt bra: A wardrobe must! There is nothing worse than a bra that does not fit well or shows lumps and bumps. So my advice go for a professional fitting and find the best support you can!
No line panties: I personally love a lace thong.
A cross body bag: So on trend this season, especially in a fun color. To me a cross body is essential, allows me to shop hands-free!
Lastly, a nude shoe: An absolute must! A nude shoe goes with everything! It will also make your legs appear longer!

Don’t be afraid to experiment and be creative…your wardrobe is an expression of who you are. So have fun and enjoy the warmer weather, blooming flowers, and all the fabulous fashion that awaits you!

The Summer Checklist

Summer is about, easy living and easy dressing…here are my top must haves for summer…
* A chino short, you choose the color…most stores like J. Crew make these classics in varying lengths which I love as some of us want to show more and some of us want to show less!
* A simple ribbed tank…my advice, stock up on these.  They are great for layering or wearing alone. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone here and choose some neon colors to amp up your summer wardrobe!
* Basic cotton t-shirts…you’ll wear them all year round, I promise!
* A broken in pair of denim…whether you choose a high-end brand like J Brand or a lower end like Levis…there is nothing like a worn out pair of jeans that makes your ass look good…
* A  chambray shirt…a season essential! Wear as a layering piece over tanks and dresses to keep you warm on chilly nights or when the a/c is blowing too hard.
* Shoes in neutral hues to pair with all the color we are seeing this season! I recommend a great comfy gladiator, a fabulous wedge, and this season’s biggest trend…a summer boot! I personally own all 3 of the shoes in this photo and LOVE them all!
* Fabulous sunglasses…I love these Oakley’s they are so flattering and your purchase will support The Young Survival Coalition, an organization very near and dear to my heart!
* A fun, colorful wrap bracelet or a wrist filled of stacked bangles will add a punch of style to your basics..
* A belt is another great accessory that will allow you to add some personality to a simple outfit…
*  Bright hued make-up will look amazing against sun-kissed skin!
Enjoy,
