Style Sessions: Fashion Link Up – Light & Bright Weekend Delight

Welcome to Style Sessions! I’m sharing one of the most versatile wardrobe hues with you today – white! On weekends I live in it and adore the light, bright feel this color brings to any outfit. You’ll see I kept things pretty simple, but on weekends that’s often what I love most…

A Light and Bright Weekend Delight…

There’s just something about white that makes me feel like I’m on vacation – and I love that! On weekends, I often reach for a floaty white dress, crisp white cotton tee or these white jeans. It’s such a fab hue to mix with any color, print or texture and transform your look in an instant… dress it up or down, make it feminine or edgy, glam or relaxed – the choice is yours! For a late afternoon into early evening dinner and drinks session with friends, I kept things quite simple. I loved the fun daytime feel of sequin flats, feminine touch of this Lulu’s embellished top, the requisite injection of sparkle with the metallic bow clutch and pop of pink lipstick (I’m adoring this color right now!)…

Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m excited to introduce you to the gorgeous Rachel of La Mariposa! When I saw this outfit last week, it was love at first sight – if you’re looking for fabulous weekend style, this is it…

I adore her style… she always seems to add the perfect punch of color with a mix of fabrics and patterns. However, not only is Rachel a total fashionista, if you visit her blog you’ll also learn a few Spanish words! She is bilingual and each post features the Spanish version, so brilliant!

1. What is your go-to look?  I love to wear colorful or patterned blouses with skinny jeans – It’s an easy look to transition from day to night! However, I’ve been wearing a lot of skirts and dresses lately because they’re more comfortable during the hot summer days. Whatever I wear, I make sure to throw on accessories, because as a Stella & Dot Stylist, I am jewelry obsessed!

2. There are so many fashion trends right now, which on are you currently loving?  I love leather and I have to admit – I still am totally stuck on peplum! I have a lot of peplum tops, skirts and even a pair of pants. I think a form-fitting peplum (perhaps a leather one!) creates a very flattering figure that’s the perfect mix of girly and bombshell.

3. What inspired you to start La Mariposa?  For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with clothes, accessories and shopping in general. I’m always scouting out new trends and how to find fab items for less. Additionally, I am a huge advocate of language acquisition – being bilingual is really beneficial! I realized La Mariposa could be a great way for me to spread my styling tips and shopping tricks, while teaching readers a bit of Spanish… Not to mention, I’m able to connect with other fashion lovers from all over the world! I am so happy to be blogging – the community is genuinely supportive and I’m amazed at how much I’ve already learned throughout this process.

4. Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without?  1. MAC Tinted Moisturizer – it’s so important to protect your skin from the sun, so why not enhance its color at the same time?!  2. Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara – I’ve just started using this, but i’m hooked already! My lashes look naturally long and full.  3. Mary Kay “Rock n Red” lip gloss – this color is glamorous and it’s so easy to apply!

5. How would you describe your style?  I definitely have a tendency to wear more feminine pieces, but I’d say I’ve got a glam factor thrown in there as well. When I’m not all dolled-up, I’m usually more city-chic. Is there a word that describes all of this in one? Haha!

  19. Oooh, love the look with flats and subtle accessories. The soft colors and up-close embellishments combine for what I call “second-look beauty” — the first glance tells you it’s beautiful, and the second glance makes you look closer to discover why. :)

  43. Your white jeans fit you so nicely – not too tight and not see-through. I think the lavender and metallic accessories are a lovely compliment as well and keep your outfit very “fresh” for summertime. Great look!
