Seeing White

Flora Mia Yvonne Dress 1

Spring is in the air and I am seeing white!!! Investing in off-white, winter white, cream or any light colored pieces can be tricky. So often whites tend to be sheer or show every lump and bump you never knew you had. My dress today from Flora + Mia solves all of those common white woes!!

The Yvonne Dress by Blaque Label is lined, providing overall coverage. The dress and lining have just a hint of spandex to hug your curves while disguising any problem areas. My favorite aspect of this dress is the scalloped hem, it elongates the legs without being a micro-mini.

STYLE STEAL: I paired with my favorite shoe of spring, the slip-on sneaker! Below I have found a few, on sale, just for you!!!

Style Alert: Flat Sexy Summer Boots

High Heels are a staple in most women’s outfits.  I look at my high heels as Samson looked at his hair (the bible story you learn as a child).  They give me strength and make me feel fierce and unstoppable.

We wear high heels for work, a night out on the town, and let’s face it ladies—that little kitten heel on your most “casual” pair of sandals is still a heel.  Just like Samson’s hair, those killer heels can be the downfall of a great outfit if you are uncomfortable.  So for a night out on the town, I gave my feet a rest by pairing my sexy sequin dress with a pair of flat boots.  This look can easily be created by wearing a very dressy outfit with your flats.  By overdressing for a occasion, it gives room for your flats to balance the look to perfection.

STYLE STEAL: Give new life to an old pair of boots. Last winter’s over-the-knee boots become a summer fringe fashion must in two easy steps:

Start with a pair of suede boots.

  1. Fold them over to just below the knee.
  2. Cut slits up the section you just folded beginning behind the knee about .5-1 inch each.  I just eyeballed it and it worked great.

You have amazing summer festival/boho boots!  If you would like more great ways to wear this STYLE STEAL subscribe to my page!

Sheer Neon: Must Have Summer Shirt

Pick a color, any color— tangerines, lemon-limes and sassy pinks, oh my!  Add the perfect punch to your spring wardrobe with this versatile sheer summer blouse. I found this great shirt at H&M on our San Francisco trip but they can be found in stores from forever 21 to Neimans.  Tie it up with a flowing hi-low skirt for a weekend look, or tuck it in with a pair of slacks and blazer for business chic.  On lazy days I like to wear this great high-low skirt with sandals and a tank for quick and comfortable style.

Style Alert: San Francisco Fashion Trends for Spring 2012


I left my heart in San Francisco but brought some amazing looks home with me!  From the tailored suits in the financial district to the combat boots on market street the local style left visions of fashion dancing in my head.  I brought a few looks home to share with you! 

While combat boots may be unrealistic for a 90 degree summer they are most definitely on my fall list of must haves.  Combat boots and thigh high socks not your style?  Try a pair with some skinny jeans, shorts or take it back to the ‘90s and wear them with a dress and call yourself Blossom. Whoa!

Would you rock a pair of combat boots?
