How to Rock Transitional Dressing

March 15, 2017

Welcome to March: It doesn’t feel like full-blown winter anymore, but it’s still not quite spring, either. To get through this wishy-washy time when the temps could be 40 or 60 degrees, you need to lean on a few key staples. These transitional pieces will help you bridge the gap between seasons–and get your spring stuff in rotation a little earlier, too!

 

On your torso: Mid-weight sweaters

When you need something in between the chunky knits of December and the fluttery blouses of May, mid-weight knits are a girl’s best friend. If you’re not ready for a full-on jacket, layer up with a vest (try this fur-collared style by Pink Rose, $17) for added warmth and style points.

On your arms: Anorak

You might think it’s too early to pull out some of your favorite spring dresses, but with this outdoorsy classic (plus tights and booties, see below), you can absolutely make it work. We love this anorak in olive or black by Ashley ($20). Suddenly, cold shoulder dresses like this black-and-white printed one from Luxology ($21.99) don’t seem so chilly!

On your legs: Fuzzy tights

Don’t close the drawer on tights just yet: Cable knits and cozy heathered tights still have plenty of life left matched under a denim skirt or sweater dress. And here’s a wild idea: Layer a wild-printed pair of capri leggings like these from Eye Candy ($7.99) under a solid-colored skirt or dress, top with knee- or calf-high boots and you’ve got a super-cool transitional look.

On your feet: Booties

When your sturdy, fur-topped snow boots seem like overkill but it’s not breezy enough for sandals, the bootie is your best friend. Feel free to rock the classic short boots you wore all of last fall, or look for updated styles with breezy insets or open weaves, like the Chelly Bootie by Fergalicious ($54.95).

 

On your head: Knit beanie

By now, you’ve had enough of your wintry hat with cozy ear flaps. It’s time to make the move to a slouchy lightweight beanie, which can add a bit of grunge-inspired attitude to any outfit.

9 Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats

February 14, 2017

9 Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats

A bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates might be the most traditional, but when it comes to Valentine’s Day gift-giving, there is so much more out there to show your affection for the ones you love. Whether you’re looking for a special surprise for your spouse, child or friend (and don’t forget to treat yourself, too!), these options are as sweet as can be.

The hand-made details—a dark denim rosette, metallic heart cut-out and hand lettering—of this wood-grained Love Frame ($11.99) make it an extra-special perch for a favorite photo.

 

 

How cute is this Together Makes Life Beautiful pillow ($9.99)? One side features a heartfelt message, while the other is covered edge to edge with x’s and o’s.

 

With its heathered gray tones, comfy knit fabric and sweet screenprint, this Inspired Hearts Hacci Raglan Hoodie ($19.99) should be required attire for a cozy movie Valentine’s Day date at home.

 

Whether or not it’s sandals season where you live, you can’t help but go googly-eyed after one look at these Emoji Heart Eyes Flip Flops ($3.99).

 

Any modern romantics in the house? If you prefer crisp and clean-cut designs to pink, red and frills, pick up this Derek Heart High Neck Screen Tank ($4.99) with a simple black-and-white motif that nods to Valentine’s Day without seeming overly sappy.

 

With it’s powder pink hue and sugar-sweet message, this Heart String Art ($9.99) is just the right fit for the littlest valentine in your life. Bonus points for adding these utterly adorable Rainbow Heart Sunglasses ($3.99)

 

Wear your heart on your sleeve with this Crystal Bangle with Heart ($7.99). Between the rose gold-tone metal and the twinkly crystal heart and band, it’s right-on for Valentine’s Day.

 

Lapel pins are making a comeback, big-time! Your BFF would really dig the Orion 3 Piece Bff Heart and Donut Pins ($3), which would look super-cute pinned on a jean jacket or backpack.
