STREET STYLE SNEAKER TREND

IMG_0085

In 2014 sneakers paired with dresses were all the rage. The trend was not so present this year on the runways but hot, hot, hot in streetwear. Today I show you how you can rock the streetwear trend too!!

For my look today I paired an ultra femme Tibi dress with my Converse Chuck T’s. These Chuck Taylors are high-top but I folded them down to get some ankle action. While pairing high-tops with a longer skirt may look cool proportionately, I don’t think it’s the most flattering for first timers. I’d go with a lower rise like I did today with my Converse. I also chose to stick with a monochromatic look, black dress, black kicks. This gives a more streamlined look instead of, “Hey I’m here, and so are my white sneakers”!! For the finishing touch I added some power girl bling.
Now rest those tootsies and step out in street style sneaker fashion!

How to: Layer With Style

How To Layer

Spring layering is not something I am accustomed to, being a Texas girl. It’s usually so hot in Houston, even thinking of layering is laughable. Also, for a girl I always felt layering adds layers, which adds size, which no girl wants. Being here in New York I’ve had more of an opportunity to experiment with layering and have found if done the right way, it can add a whole other fashionable “layer” to your style.

Floppy Fedora

The key is to start with a great base. The lightweight undershirt in my look today adds dimension with it’s high-low cut, without adding bulk. I then layered with a robins egg blue cropped sweatshirt, white skinny jean and accessorized with a floppy fedora.
I’ve picked some great base tops below that will have you layering in no time!

Boho Vibes: One Dress Two Ways

IMG_8617

Is it a shirt? Is it a dress? It’s whatever the beans you want it to be!! Ever find yourself rummaging through your closet thinking, “I have nothing to wear”? I do all of the time and that’s when I get creative.

For today’s bohemian vibe I turned one of my favorite silk dresses by Sofia Collection into a flowy boho blouse. To get the look, I belted the dress at the waist, then pulled the material over the belt, from the top, to add a bloused feel. Try to remember when you would tuck in your t-shirt in as a kid. Remember how you would pull out the perfect amount to get the right tuck? Do that:)

Sofia Collection Boho

To pull it all together I added my favorite, homemade, cut-offs, oh so perfect gladiator sandals and boho bling from Lauren Craft Collection.
