mark. Island Elegance Maxi for Wear and Share Wed

Bon Voyage!  Jackie from Living After Midnite and I are taking an instant vacation to Saint Barts for wear and share Wednesday!  It may be just a normal Wednesday and we might just be doing our normal Wednesday activities but when you slip into this hi-low dress from the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts capsule collection you’re instantly transported to vaca mode on the French island!  We both took the mark. Island Elegance Maxi Dress ($44) and styled it two ways!

The mark. Island Elegance Maxi dress has plenty of interest with its chain detail neckline and beachy pattern in swirls of ocean blues, greens and sandy golds.  So it really comes down to how you accessorize it.  I wore this look on Easter so I wanted to dress it up pretty and lady like and fit for spring.  (yes, yes I know, I was supposed to wear the Royal Pretty Dress but this came the Friday before and I just HAD TO!)

Like I said the pattern on this dress is pretty much all you need but I created an arm party that pulled in the those same blues and sandy golds with the mark. Glimmer and Gleam Bracelet Set ($26) also from the Saint Barts capsule collection and Avon Signature Watch ($69.99).  I loved how this dress just flows and blows in the breeze and with my bangle jangle I definitely felt pretty and lady like.

What’s an Easter look without a hat!?!  My Brooks Brothers hat in royal blue was the perfect match to this dress.  I love how Jackie and I both accented in dazzling blue (the color of spring as shown here here and here!)  With a big hat like this one, usually your earrings get lost, but not these extra large gold hoops with chain detail in the mark. Hang With Me Earrings ($20).  They were the perfect pair to complete the look.  I finished off my look with white lace pumps from Shoedazzle (old) and a beauty look created with the Island Eyes Shadow Pallet ($16) and Island Beauty Face Compact ($16) — which I reviewed in my last post!

What To Wear: Easter

One of my fondest memories is Mom taking us to get Easter outfits, which for me usually meant a new dress, purse and hat!  Even as a wee child I loved big Easter hats!  I may not get to spend the holiday with my Mom this year but I still uphold her tradition of wearing a special outfit for Easter.  And dying eggs… and eating Easter ham… and EASTER CANDY!  I have a few good options to wear this year, and I need your help deciding!  Comment on which look you think I should wear…

Spring has Sprung – Violet Vibe

Spring officially has sprung today!  And after having weeks of perfect spring weather we got rain today… go figure.  Regardless, it just means I can officially be in full-on spring mode.  I think I captured it in the latest new arrivals from mark.  Well, the geese thought I did at least…

White On Blazer and Violet Vibe Dress

White On Blazer and Violet Vibe Dress

Leave it to mark. to create another go-to dress in a hot spring shade.  The Violet Vibe Dress ($32) is super flattering and the cut flatters pretty much any body type.  To slim the waist even more I added another new mark. arrival, Studs and Style Stretch Belt ($16).  I paired it with the White On Time Blazer ($48) since it’s not quite warm enough for sleeveless.  Seriously though, this blazer is pretty much the PERFECT white blazer.  The quality is on par and the fit is flattering and trendy while staying classy, a wardrobe must have!  It tops everything from dresses to tanks and jeans and everything in between!  You’ll see more of this blazer, I promise.

Spring Details

Spring Details That Geese Love

The Style and Stones Bracelet ($24) and In A Flash Ring ($16) add a little charm while staying fresh as spring in the brass crystal and blush tones.  Of course I’m carrying my favorite spring bag, the Hot To Handle Bag ($36 – get it for $25 with a $20 purchase now through 3/21) and anchoring it all the Straight Up Sassy Heels ($40) all available at my eboutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

This spring mark. has hit the mark with the new spring arrivals.  I love these pieces not only for their fresh feel but also for their versatility.  This whole outfit will work for work or play or a spring bridal/baby shower or a perfect look for Easter and so much more.  I can see myself wearing this dress all summer with some wedges and the blazer topping a tank and shorts.  I think I’m more than ready for spring with all these pieces… now I just need a tan.  Maybe I’ll hang out on the grass here with the geese and see if I can get some sun.
