Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Spring Style – Cobalt Skirt


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! I’m excited to share a fabulous Spring look and season transition outfit with you today. This cobalt skirt (currently on sale) has all the fun of Spring, while this sweater still keeps you warm – and the best thing is, these pieces can be easily mixed and matched to create so many looks! I’d recommend wearing this cobalt skirt with black, white or grey tops. It’s actually perfect year-round, as when the weather cools again you can just add tights.

As I’m sure you know I love a good accessory and these calf hair polka dot heels are my favorites! Unfortunately they’re no longer available, but I found some others for you (option one, option two and option three are cute, I also love these polka dot flats and the leopard version too!).

Oh and I have to share, these Prada sunglasses (they’ve been one of my most-loved pairs for years) are currently on sale!

Meet Our Head Stylist..

I’m thrilled to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Bogi from Red Reticule! This lady’s style is so elegant and chic – how perfect is this outfit she recently put together?

bogi two Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Spring Style   Cobalt Skirt

STYLE Q&A WITH BOGI:

How would you describe your style? Simple elegance. I appreciate clean and chic looks with subtle accessories.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? I am head over heels in love with feminine midi skirts and excited to see a comeback of the ever classic and sophisticated black and white combo.

What inspired you to start your blog? After moving to another continent, I needed a creative outlet while adjusting and figure out a way to maintain those “girl talks” with mom in a different channel. Besides, the blog has a huge impact on maintaining peace of mind for my parents. Even if we don’t get the chance to talk for a week, as long as there is a post, they know all is good. This is huge to me.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: Éminence Coconut Moisturizer is outstanding keeping my ever thirsty skin hydrated throughout the night. I put kale into my smoothies and I also put it on my face. Once a week I use Éminence Kale & Citrus Masque for extra hydration.

What is your best beauty trick? I mix a drop of rosewater concentrate into my moisturizers for a more even skin tone.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I would like to go back to Prague in the Czech Republic. The city is absolutely beautiful, full of history, amazing architecture and the best cafés.

Tell us something not many people know about you? I used to design all my clothes while living in Europe (I didn’t shop for years if you can believe that). My mom’s best friend is a seamstress with magical talent.

I adore this relaxed but polished outfit, sometimes you just can’t go past a classic navy stripe top and blue skinny jeans. The key to an amazing outfit is glamming up these style essentials with accessories…

My favorites include blue mirrored aviators, cute Loeffler Randall gold ballet flats (they are on major sale – was $250, now just $75 – snap them up like I did!), a tan belt (on sale!), gold bracelet set, gorgeous statement necklace and this bright magenta monogram clutch.

Meet Our Head Stylist..

I’m thrilled to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Lauren from Lauren McBride! I adore this boho vibe she created recently… and how gorg is her hair!

lauren collage Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: Spring Outfit Ideas   Stripes and Denim

STYLE Q&A WITH LAUREN:

How would you describe your style? I feel like my style can be a little all over the place because there are so many trends I love! I always aim for comfort and I’m really drawn to the boho trend (even as I’m buried under snow this winter!).

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? Jogger pants! This trend is so incredible! Comfortable pants that are practically like pajamas and can be dressed up with heels or down with some Converse or cute slip-on sneakers?! What more can you ask for?!

What inspired you to start your blog? My blog began as a way to keep up with long distance family, but has evolved into a place where I share my greatest passions. It’s my creative outlet where I can escape from my career as a nurse and focus on what I love in life. You’ll find anything from fashion to beauty tutorials to DIY projects my husband and I are always conjuring up. It has a little bit of everything!

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: My Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and a Beauty Blender. Seriously, if you don’t own these, you are majorly missing out!

What is your best beauty trick? Since I’m stuck in the never ending winter, my hair has been soo dry. Static Guard is my BFF and works like a charm. Yes, in my hair!

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I want to stay in one of those little grass huts on the ocean in Fiji or Bora Bora!

Tell us something not many people know about you? I always use up an entire tube of chapstick before buying another one. Which I’m hearing is really rare?!

Meet Our Head Stylist..

I’m thrilled to introduce you to this week’s Head Stylist, Ashley from Le Stylo Rouge! I love this casual look she linked up recently and I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely swooning over her Saint Laurent bag!

lesty Style Sessions Link Up: Monochrome With My New Stuart Weitzman Boots

STYLE Q&A WITH ASHLEY:

How would you describe your style?  A little eclectic, honestly. I’ll wear just about anything­–  sometimes the more ridiculous the item, the more I want to wear it just to see if I can make it work. I love pieces with some attitude, or some edge. I always tend to want to make a look tougher. But items I just can’t ever turn down include a tailored cigarette trouser, a blazer, and ankle boots.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? I’m really into athleisure right now. The idea of polished, sporty street style is something I’ve been playing around with on the blog recently. Casual and comfortable, but still interesting.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I was (lovingly!) bullied into it, actually. I always had an opinion about fashion and my friends and family kept urging me to put my money where my mouth was and start a blog. Four years later, here we are.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without:  M.A.C Lipstick in Twig (the best 90s lip, in my opinion), Fudge Urban Salt Spray (I usually wash my hair and let it air dry into beachy waves) and Aquaphor (fixes chapped everything; such a savior in the winter).

What is your best beauty trick? Learn how to properly fill in your brows. Go have ‘em done and filled and have the esthetician/makeup artist teach you. Brows are so important and knowing how to fill yours in correctly frames the face and completes your look.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination?  Santorini, Greece. Such a gorgeous corner of the world with so much history.

Tell us something not many people know about you?  I’m a huge college basketball fan, which is par for the course for a KU grad. I’m sure I’m quite intolerable on Twitter during basketball season and especially during the NCAA tournament in March.

Style Sessions Link Up: Spring Style – Leopard Skirt and Chambray


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This week I’m flashing back to one of my favorite outfits, you can never go wrong with a leopard skirt and chambray. I first wore this in Fall and now come Spring, it’s still a perfect combination. I love timeless style that transcends seasons.

How fun is this leopard skirt, I often wear it with my classic chambray shirt (everyone needs this, it’s so versatile and the perfect blue – it’s also on sale, use code SPRINGSTYLE). Oh and this belt is amazing – how cute is the gold bow (and it’s on sale under $15!). You may have noticed I’m also in these heels again, they just work perfectly with every outfit. Finally, how cute is this initial necklace? It’s one of my special pieces, I love wearing it.

What I love about this look is it’s glam and polished, but feels effortless – fabulous for a weekend lunch with the girls…

Meet Our Head Stylist..

STYLE Q&A WITH TAYLOR:

How would you describe your style?  I think this one is difficult to pinpoint as I think my style really depends on my mood for that day. So I’m a little bit of everything all rolled into one – tomboy, classic, chic, glam, boho, etc.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  70’s! Yes! Thank goodness they are back! I’ve been desperately looking for a good flare jean without breaking my bank. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

What inspired you to start your blog?  My girlfriends. I’m the girl in my group of friends who gets asked, “What do I wear to this event?”, “Does this look good together?”, “Can you go shopping with me?”. I figured I’m sure other people thought the same thing, so why not share my shopping tricks and style secrets with the world? I created a blog and now I’m here. I love every second of blogging.

Name a couple of beauty products you couldn’t live without:  Lancôme Tiente Idole Foundation, deodorant (obv!) and dry shampoo for my lazy days.

What is your best beauty trick?  I have oily skin so on days that I need it to look absolutely flawless I douse my face with Walgreens brand Milk of Magnesia. You will not see an ounce of oil on me, even at 5 pm-it’s amazing.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination?  Santorini Greece! It looks so unreal. If you haven’t heard of it do yourself a favor and google it.

Tell us something not many people know about you?  I have what I like to call the KISS tongue. It’s very long and I can even touch my nose with it! Haha disgusting I know.

Fab Favorites Link Up: Spring Break Fashion


Happy Friday! A little reminder the big Shopbop sale ends tomorrow, there is up to 25% off everything (yes, seriously everything).  So get in quick and grab your favorite pieces while they’re still on sale!  Did you see my top sale picks this week? I can’t wait for some of them to arrive… particularly this leopard clutch!

I’m sure many of you are looking forward to a Spring break, sunshine, beaches, cocktails and warm weather. Today, I wanted to bring you a few of my vacation favorites… I have to tell you, I often think a one piece is much cuter than a bikini and you can’t go past a chic white cover up, mirrored sunglasses, a gorgeous towel (I love that this one can be personalized), a perfect beach bag and of course, fabulous sandals. Here’s to beautiful Spring break fashion…

Shopbop Sale Favorites


It’s here! It’s here! The huuuge Shopbop sale is now on until Saturday. Everything (and I mean literally everything) is on sale… up to 25% off everything, including extra discount on already reduced sale items.

Don’t miss your chance to get all those pieces you’ve been dreaming about! I got this Marc Jacobs handbag in the sale around four years ago and have honestly worn it every day since (yes, you’ve all seen it here a million times!). This year I’ve picked up the leopard print clutch, these ‘slim illusion’ white jeans and these leopard sandals – I just know I’ll be living in them for the next few months. Love! Simply enter the code BIGEVENT15 at checkout.

Here are my top picks… Happy shopping gals!
