Style in Spring/Summer of 2013

~~~More BANG for your BUCK and still Stylish~~~
coral dress 2
I can’t put my finger on it, but I just love coral! It’s fun, vibrant and happy! Coral can also come in a variety of shades from the pink to orange-ish and depending on you skin tone, everyone can usually find a particular hue to rock! Coral can also be paired with lots of colors such as the classic nude/creme, pastel purple, jade and the list goes on!! The dress above (I lost the link cause I’m not buying it) is more than $75.00 bucks, but……

get this dress without crazy price tag–bringing sexy to the V-back   only $27.80


((and if you are worried about your bra strap showing in the deep-v, I highly recommend (and own) a lacy bandeau top so you can keep the girls up in style. I bought mine at Francescas for $ 12.00.–this store has lots of fun stuff and you should definitely check it out!))

One of my bff’s let me pick the color of my bridesmaid dress… of course, I had to rock the coral [2nd best to my favorite color, green] =) Also, who knew J. Crew sold bridesmaid dresses right?!? I wear this dress all the time and it is simple and classic!

Have you been eye-balling a boho-chic crochet shoe look?!?! …. this style cost $54.00)

Oooor for a more reasonable price and a longer lasting durable shoe keep reading! We know TOMS donates shoes… but at , $9.87 (1/5 the price of TOMS) you can afford to send at least two pairs of the shoes plus shipping t0 other peeps in need!! NOW that’s smart & savy


The Peplum is  one of the most flattering fashions you’ll ever wear, much like the classic little black dress .However, unlike the slimming effect of  black apparel, the peplum promotes  the curves of your body [or creates some for those women without] and frames your silhouette by creating the illusion of an hourglass shape. $98.00

“Whether it’s a scrap of navel on show, courtesy of the crop top trend, or stripy Bermudas in patriotic red, white and blue, here is a lesson in Summer style, no holds barred”. I did a little red, white and blue along with some fun different patterns with my favorite mustard colored purse! When it got chilly out, I threw on my chambray pearl-snap over the outfit to keep me warm.

I’m digging this trend because you can throw together almost anything that is already in your closet…I like to put together one larger patterned item (like the chevron skirt) with a  smaller pattern (like the plaid crop-top) cause its not too crazy. .. let’s face it, i live in Texas not NYC so i’m not as bold (nor on a sidewalk runway) as the ladies from the North

What are some of your favorite 2013 trends that I have left out? please share =)

Happy Stylin!
