Trend Alert: Embroidered Denim

Bright and playful trends are popping up everywhere this Spring and embroidery is hot, hot hot right now! On of my favorite pieces I’ve found recently is this Rails Knox denim jacket from Nordstrom. It’s a fun twist on a classic piece that’s sure to turn some heads. Wear it with your favorite white pant or sun dress and you’re ready for an fun day! If you’re into this trend but maybe want a more stubble or softer approach, Nordstrom has several options at different price points to select from so there’s a jacket that will meet your style needs.

As Memorial Weekend quickly approaches I’ve been starting to plan my packing list to ensure I’m all set for the long weekend. I prefer to keep my packing to a minimum so my secret tip is to pack neutral basics for easy pairing. Dresses are also a must, since they don’t require much effort or thought when you’re on the go. The one thing I always bring no matter what the weather report tells me, are my favorite pair of jeans. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been eternally grateful I packed them. I usually only bring one cross body purse and keep my accessories light and dainty for a chic look.  Of course a light weight jacket or sweater is always a good idea for cool nights huddled around a camp fire.

 

What do you like to bring for weekend getaways?

If I could wear a dress everyday of the week I would and my closet definitely reflects this lifestyle choice. I think this started when I was a child and loved feeling like a princess while playing in the mud of course. As I grew up and realized that sleep is the best and waking up in the morning to birds outside of my window is the vain of my existence, I learned to appreciate the simple method of throw on an go. Not having to figure out what to wear or how to match my top to my pants, helps save me valuable minutes of extra sleep. I love being able to pick one perfect fitting dress, sandals from my shoe rack and a denim jacket as I run out the door knowing that it’s the perfect ensemble for my busy day to night lifestyle. Plus when I’m half asleep I can trust myself and know I’ll still look polished and pulled together even when I may not feel like it before my morning cup of coffee.

Resort season is upon us and the stores are packed with bright swim wear, sandals and all the makings for a perfect getaway. I myself just picked up two perfectly fitting, yes I dare say perfectly fitting, swim suit tops that go with a million bikini bottoms I already own. When it comes to swimwear I’m a little resistant to spend more than $100 per mix and match piece these days. With retailers like Target, affordable swimwear is just as functional and supportive as high priced brands. If you’re large chested like myself have no fear, Target was to the rescue with underwire, adjustable tops that come in larger bra sizes! So what ever your swim suit needs are, don’t feel pressured or fear that your suits are going to cost you, there are plenty of affordable options out there this season. Save your money for the trip or splurge on the perfect sun hat and tote. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
