MIX IT UP! Add a splash of color to your outfit

Have you seen our latest video staring Spankie Valentine all about color combos?
If you haven't take a look:

The easiest way to make sure you're not clashing? Take a spin on the color wheel! No seriously!

Colors across from each other on the color wheel are called complementary and are very visually appealing when paired together! Or pick three colors that sit next to each other to the color wheel- like yellow, green and blue. You can always dare to think out of the color wheel but this is a great tool for when you are thinking of what you could wear with a new outfit! 

So in case you need more outfit inspo- here's a little bit more:

Looking to add a bit of color but don't want to splurge on a new outfit? Make your accessories and shoes the pops of color over a neutral top and jeans. We loved these cranberry heels- they are perfect for fall and can easily be worn casually or dressed up. Turquoise and other natural stone jewelry is on trend and compliments those heels perfectly!

Love denim jackets but stumped on how style them other than over denim? Try layering it over a dress or jump suit. Really want to know how to make them pop? Pair them with denim's bff, tangerine! Tangerine and blue perfectly compliment each other by bringing out the best in both shades

Mixed prints have been all the rage for the past few seasons but it can be kind of challenging to find to prints that compliment and don't clash. The easiest way to pull of this trend? Keep it simple. This black and white outfit makes it a no brainer. Also stick to the classics- polka dots and stripes are simple prints that pair together perfectly . Other easy combos herringbone/stripes, stripes/hounds tooth, plaid/polka dots.

So what do you think? Are there any other color combos you like? Will you be mixing patterns? Let us know in the comments!

    How to style on the go!

    It seems like we are ALWAYS on the go. Whether commuting to school or work or taking off on a  vacation.  It can be a serious challenge to create outfits that work for not only catching that cab but also look professional behind a desk. Or even more seriously from airplane seat to airport pickup.


    When you need to pull together a professional look but you've got to catch the subway.... and then walk to work.. or catch a bus... skirts and dress can be a downer especially in gusty weather. These shorts give us the confidence to move fast without the flash and works great everywhere else. 

    Grown Up Rain Gear:


    Rain is great for plants but not your fave pair of heels! That's why the must have for every closet is a good pair ofrainboots. We take it a step further with these fashion savvy boots that your gonna want to rock even on a dry day!  Worried about your purse getting splashed? Ditch the DIT plastic bag cover and go with the jelly purse to protect your electronics and spare your fave purse!


    Presenting the no duh way to commute when we are on our feet all day! These sneakers not only feel comfortable, they are totally on point with this seasons normcore trend. 


    Leggings are amazingly comfortable option on a long journey and are even better when you need to look put together upon arrival. Perfectly paired under a sophisticated knit top, they will make getting through security or sitting in the back seat just a little more comfortable

    Stretch Knit Dresses:

    Serious comfort ahead! Dresses constructed out of stretch knit material are sooo comfortable and so perfect for when you are on the go. It's hard not to look polished in one of these dresses when you pair them with a statement necklace and heels. Bonus points- they won't wrinkle! 

    Here are a couple of "on the go outfits" we styled. Take a look:

    This outfit is for the girl on the go to the office! We styled these comfy quilted leggings with a chic houndstooth top. The chic quilted bag will perfectly play up the leggings. Accessorize with a soft scarf and classic pumps. Don't forget a great watch to keep you on time! 

    This outfit was inspired by way out west and to be way comfortable for the girl on the go! The stretch knit dress is optimal for catching that bus when paired with a great pair of booties. A cross-body bag will stay on steady on your shoulder. You are never really dressed without a smile and a great accessory like this necklace!

    Get going in this totally comfortable work frendly outfit. Don't stress about missing that morning meeting. Layer on this sweater and knit skirt with some slip ons. Throw on your favorite shoulder strap bag and you will be out the door in no time!

    Do you have a better way to travel? Share your story or advice.

    Manicure Monday: Trends inspired by your mani!

    Unsure of what trends to try? Need some insight on your style? Look no further than the tips of your fingers! Here is some style inspiration based on your current/favorite manicure.

    If your always painting your nails neutral/natural colors:

    You like to keep things simple and classic. Your fave prints are the ones everybody knows- polka dots, stripes and why not, they look good on everyone! A classic is never out of style. Mix it up by trying these prints on unexpected pieces like denim. Or go crazy and mix'em up. Even good girls can have an edge; pick a classic item with twist- like this quilted purse covered in chains!  Gravitate to lace;  it adds interest to any outfit and is just as sweet as you are. Try out these styles! 
    (Left to Right: Top, Dress, Jeans, Purse, Boots, Sunglasses, Dresses

    If your nails are cool hues or dark shades:

    You are completely in touch with your creative side and you aren't afraid to express it through your clothing! You are willing to go for the more daring trends. That's why we think you should embracing these bewitching pieces. Pick unique and mysterious accessories like moon pendants and natural stone necklaces. Heeled booties and fringe details are other ways to unleash your inner artist. Denim is your current fave fabric whether in distressed over sized boyfriends or chambray dresses and shirts. Go ahead, express yourself!

    If love bright bold colored manicures:

    You love the spotlight! You aren't one to shy away so here are our picks for some dramatic fall fashion. Even as summer ends, the brights go on! Steal the spotlight in color-blocked ensembles. Accessorize up with statement necklaces in the boldest and brightest colors. Contrast your brights with futuristic and sporty materials-mesh, neoprene and lucite. Most of all just have fun!

    So what are your thoughts, do you agree with your manicure inspired style forecast?
