Leather Vans

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.

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.

New Years Eve

New Year’s Eve marks the time of resolutions and new beginnings. Celebrations range from a night out on the town to a night in with friends. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you ring in the new year with style! My forever resolution is to combine comfort with looking good. To incorporate this into my NYE look I decided to give a classic fashion trend my own twist.

A black dress is a timeless base for a New Year’s outfit. This neutral color allows accessories and makeup to do the talking. To accompany this black dress I choose this wonderful jacket, which I found at a thrift store. It is the perfect color to liven up the outfit (not to mention it will keep you warm!). In addition, I have chosen sparkly eye shadow and comfortable maroon shoes. This way I look good and feel good.

Fall Must Haves

Pumpkin is not just for latte’s this season. This rustic orange color is perfect for the changing of leaves, and colder weather. This specific example is a long sleeve shirt from H&M, however, skirts, jackets, lipstick or accessories are all a perfect canvases for the pumpkin color.

Nothing screams comfort and warmth like fur accessories. Faux fur is in for the fall season. I recently picked up a similar number and it is perfect! The fur also helps to spice up your typical fall accessories. Headbands, earmuffs and gloves are great ways to add a little fur to a fall outfit.

Fall doesn’t immediately produce thoughts of floral patterns, typically that is for spring. However, floral fabrics are big this fall! This new trend is already taken hold of many stores and is present in fall lines.

Bathing Suit Season

Before you ask, yes, I have a large sunburn on my arm. We keep it real at Calla Lynne – now on to the point of this post. The end of the summer is the best time to purchase a new bathing suit. Everything is starting to go on sale. This allows for two things to happen 1) The suits you thought were out of your price range are now right back within it. 2) You can be more adventurous and try a style that you may not have normally! This post is about the latter.

I typically wouldn’t have pictured myself in this bathing suit. However, I am very excited that I was able to try a plunging neckline. Combined with the timelessness of the color black, this suit is just the right mix of old and new. The gold neckpiece at the top holding up the suit adds an elegant accent.

Solid white sneakers are a great way to be comfortable and stylish when on the go. They will go with almost any outfit; pants, shorts, or dress.

A casual dress that can go from day to night allows for a seamless transition so your fun doesn’t have to stop. Change your shoes or add some flashy jewelry to change the look.

A fun pair of sunglasses can spice up any outfit! Go for something out of your comfort zone that will allow you to stand out this summer.

A good book is great company for the beach, the park, or just grabbing a coffee outside.

It is inevitable that in the summer months we will all need to walk a line between hot summer days and cool breezy nights. Staying with a lighter color pallet when layering up will help to stay in the summer season and make a smooth transition from day to night.
