Wardrobe Blue Print: Spring Layers

Wardrobe Blue Print:  Spring Layers

Wardrobe Blue Print: Spring Layers

Happy First Day of Spring!  And just like that, as we hit the daylight savings day switch, it feels like spring.  The cold and rain here seems to of given way for some warm sun this week and those longer days feel so nice and energetic! But with spring comes spring fashion that needs to be just as energetic but also functional, as the afternoon sun warms things the cold night still keep things chilly.  So I’m following the blue print for spring fashion:  spring layers.

So is mark.’s spring fashion release:  Follow the blue print this season with denim pieces, touches of turquoise and indigo florals.  Dance through a field of flowers in the peasant-style dress as you let your style bloom this season.

This denim moto jacket was super comfy to wear all day like a layer not just a jacket.  It has good stretch in it and is a deep solid indigo.  I was in a sweater rut and just like the rest of us ready for something new and fresh.  When that afternoon sun hit I took it off and the long sleeve dress worked perfectly.

Come spring I’m always excited to pick up a few new spring dresses.  I love that this one is on a blue base and has long sleeves, which makes a nice addition to my wardrobe.  I’m REALLY excited adding this denim moto jacket too.  I’m about to layer like a mo fo!

Mood: Moody Blues

In like a  lion, out like a lamb.  The “old Pennsylvanian saw” holds true this year so far.  With the windy, rainy, moody blue days we’ve had, I’m also feeling that vibe.  I’ve been gravitating towards the blues lately, which seem to be perfect for end of winter.

When looking for a black leather jacket for the Justin Timberlake Concert (see here) I found this cool navy one instead, which got me super excited and fit my moody blue vibes.  Layered with a prairie blouse and some fresh-again flares I have a look that works well for March as we transition to that lamb like weather.

More March Weather Lore:

  • A dry March and a wet May? Fill barns and bays with corn and hay.
  • As it rains in March, so it rains in June.
  • March winds and April showers? Bring forth May flowers.
  • So many mists in March you see, so many frosts in May will be.
  • Is’t on St. Joseph’s day (19th) clear, So follows a fertile year; Is’t on St. Mary’s (25th) bright and clear, Fertile is said to be the year.

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

It’s still winter. It still feels like winter. It still looks like winter. I’m over winter, and ready to flirt with spring. Which means I need wear-now styles with wear-later trends. Luckily I recruited Linda to help us flirt with spring with some appropriate long sleeved spring dress styles!

Alicia’s Look:

Lemony Fresh in the Avon Jenny Dress

Lemony Fresh in the Avon Jenny Dress

I’m flirting with fresh spring colors and cutouts.  I’m a lover of all things lemon so I knew I needed this lemon dress with split sleeves and keyhole detail, the Avon Jenny Dress.  It’s so bright and cheery even on a gray and dreary day.  I belted the dress and bloused it over the belt to give it a better shape for my body.  Of course I had to add the Avon Sunny Days Strap Watch for that extra punch.  My earrings are also lemons but from last year, but you can get the similar look with these!  Because it is still winter, I needed to layer this dress with tights and boots, but not your typical black, but with navy!  What I also love about these tights are how comfortable they are, these Avon 2 pack Opaque Tights come 1 navy 1 black.  Perfect!

Linda’s flirting with spring prints and details.  Linda took advantage of those sunny days and went with bare legs and pumps.  Nothing flirts with spring more than a fresh dress and bare legs.  The fun black and white print on this Avon Betty Dress works in every season.  The sleeve detail of piping and cutouts gives it a little extra flirty peek while still being easy to wear.  Plus, an easy to wear dress that’s a 1 and done kind of style is what we all need.  Pop on your favorite spring lip color and DONE!

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is behind us, January is set to easy mode. Time to reload and refresh. The new year brings its own set of challenges but getting ready doesn’t have to be one of them. Especially during these back to work weeks post holidays… ugh. As we get back to the grind I needed to make things easy.

Easy January Outfit

I picked up a few easy, go with everything pieces from the new Avon Go Easy Capsule collection, including this 4 pack Tee Shirt set, go with everything lucite earrings and a winter soft colored handbag to switch out of my holiday bag.  All these items are go-with-everything kind of pieces that make getting ready super easy.

For my easy back to work look I paired the cream tee with some pinstripe pull on pants (Express) and a lilac cardigan (Target and on Clearance).  Super comfortable and casual but still put together, easy for transitioning back to work.  To make things even easier I wore my flat riding boots (DSW but these ones from the collection are getting FAB reviews).

Word of Alicia:  I’m kinda over the moon about these Avon Modern Zen tee’s.  They come in 4 must have shades, cream, black, navy and slate purple which are super cool and on trend.  Excellent layering pieces with a longer line so you can wear them a lot of ways.  They can be dressed up or down or even for the gym.  Just something WELL worth your money.  I’m also over the moon about the Cosmic Constellation Necklace, it seriously is my everyday and just SO PRETTY.  Can layer it with other necklaces or wear a lone, can be casual, business, fun, you name it.  Definitely easy pieces and work with my look and will work with so many looks, so good they needed and extra call out.

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You’re Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

Are you hosting or attending a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If you are an easy going attendee then picking out an outfit is a little more fun and less strategic. My suggestion, the ever so popular sweater dress! It looks polished, put together but is oh so cozy and comfy. My pick is the Avon Elena Sweater Dress.

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Why is the Elena Sweater Dress my pick?  Well, first off its black so instantly chic, and flattering. Its also a straight fitting shape, not tight so you can eat and sit and lounge and still be totally fine.  Like I said, it’s cozy and comfy and that’s what fall is all about!  It’s also $39.99 so super affordable.

Cute and Comfy Sweater Dress

Plus the Elena Sweater Dress comes pre-glammed with these fun rhinestone details.  No necklace required!  Just layer on some cute bracelets like these Avon Pearly Jet Stretch Bracelets.  I also added the Avon Sterling Silver Onyx rings for a little more glam.

To make it holiday ready I really like it paired with these Marc Fisher red booties and red plaid bag from Guess.  Of course it needed to be paired with a mega shiny red lip, the mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Glamour.  What I like about the lip paint for Thanksgiving is it has some serious staying power and is a bright red.

Late Summer Style

For late summer I styled it with a teal bow belt (WHBM) and teal espadrille sandals (mark.)  However for fall I’ve worn it with booties and a denim jacket.  I can see this being just as cute with OTK (over the knee) or tall boots and a cozy sweater under your jacket for even cooler days.  This would make a cute Thanksgiving look too!

Currently crushing on all things yellow!

Currently crushing on all things yellow!

I’ve been obsessed with yellow lately and I don’t see that going away come fall. For late summer it’s a great color, and this linen yellow dress from Target has been a go to.  I love the fit and the ruffle sleeves are mega fun and unexpected.  I’ve worn this dress accessorized so many ways, with black accents, with colorful accents, with gold accents, and now with lemon and nautical accents!

Lemon Necklace, kinda perfect!

Lemon Earrings, kinda perfect too!

For National Lemon Day I added this lemon necklace and lemon earrings from Avon, which could not be more perfect.  To take it a little nautical I added those navy and white striped mules also from Avon (last seen here) and a navy tote (Coach) with nautical print scarf (Avon) tied to it.  Bracelets and Red Supreme lips also from Avon, watch Movado (a new birthday prezzy!)

Pairing chambray and black creates a casual vibe for work or weekend.  This look is a little more weekend but you could easily switch the skort for your fav black capris/pants/skirt and tuck in the shirt for a more professional look.  The pairing keeps your pallet sophisticated and laid back.

Easy breezy, that’s what you want in a summer dress.  This one works well as a great transitional dress as you can wear it now in the heat of summer with some simple wedges and then in the fall with your favorite bootie and leather or jean jacket.  The style is supposed to be loose and swingy but the arms/chest is fitted to keep it wearable.
