As a red head I have always steered away from bright red clothing. I decided to try and change my way of thinking about the color. My first attempt was with this beautiful patterned dress. The floral pattern with blue and green colors break up the bright red background. This can help you to wear a color that you may not normally be comfortable with. While I may not be wearing a solid color red dress any time soon, I will definitely be incorporating more red patterned pieces into my wardrobe.

A reoccurring theme in blog is looking good while being comfortable. This outfit fits right in with that sentiment. The base of the outfit is the leather vans and these shoes were the inspiration for the rest of the pieces. The lighter jean compliments the warmer weather and colors of the summer season. The jeans also break up the dark color of the shirt and the shoe. The black V-nick tank top ensures that this outfit can go from a day time bbq to late night drinks. There are a few things you can do to help transform this outfit to the event your attending. For example choose a darker lipstick and big flashy earrings to dress this up a bit. If you are doing out for a casual event try a lighter lipstick or no lipstick with a smaller earring.

Blue Flower Dress

This outfit encompasses two things that I have been really into lately; patterns and hats. The bright blue flower pattern of the dress really plays into the warmer colors that you will see this time of year. Most of us tend to gravitate more towards the warmer colored tops and patterns as the temperature increases. However, patterns are a great way to combine several colors that you may not have thought of pairing, no matter what the time of year.

As mentioned, hats are a fun accessory that I have been enjoying. A hat can change the whole feel of an outfit. Especially depending on the style of a hat. This specific hat has a beautiful leather bow on the side, which ties into the femininity of the dress. The hat combined with the boots makes me feel like I should be strolling through a farmers market or enjoying some other fun outdoor event.

Stripes are making a comeback this spring season in a big and bold way. From larger stripes to red and yellow colors according to most fashion websites this is one of the trends this year. I decided to give it a try! This beautiful red and white button up plays with the size of the strips it has a tie off to the side, which you can wear up in a bow or down. This outfit can be worn out on the town or to spice up your work attire. Overall, I am feeling this new trend!

I know we are only in February, but I am already thinking of warmer weather. Since we have a little while until we get there it is time to work some color into your outfit. In this outfit I have decided to mix up a typical business casual look with a floral blazer. This silky number will definitely help hold you over until spring. If flowers aren’t your thing, play around with bright colors, patterns, or both. Pair with a neutral top and jeans for the casual part of the outfit.

Winter Must Have’s

In case you have not noticed… it is cold! For that very reason this is the time of year when I struggle with fashion. There are a lot of layers required to stay warm when it is 4 degrees out. In my opinion, there are a couple of trends this season that can help you to stay warm while looking good.

Adding a stylish jacket is a perfect way to up your game during the winter season. Fake fur is making a come back while leather is always a classic look. Although you wouldn’t be able to wear these as your only jacket of the evening, they will keep you warm inside and add an extra flare to your outfit.

Turtlenecks are also gaining some steam this winter season. This is the perfect item to wear with layered necklaces or a sweater. They definitely keep you warm! I am speaking from experience.

Adding a fun accessory is another way to spice up your winter wardrobe. Collar clips are one fixture that I have really been enjoying. These two photos not only show how different color clips can be, but also the different ways you can wear them. Add the accessory to your standard color shirt or on a sweater.
