Twist It Up

I’ve always admired women who learn how to do intricate braided hairstyles. I can do a simple French braid or an inside out French braid but that’s about it. Growing up with two brothers I didn’t have many chances to practice.

They look chic and are a great way to pull your hair away from your face without a ponytail. In this case it helps to showcase her open back. I would love to be able to create this braid crown for a fun night out.

Spring Coats

Spring is one of my favorite coat seasons. Pale and bright colors start to bloom just like the flowers. They are a great way to show personality and spice up an outfit. Coats are one of those weaknesses of mine, and I can never say no to one that catches my heart. They are not as bad as my flip flop obsession but it’s a close second!

Simply Sweet

With Easter around the corner pastels have been popping up everywhere from candies to clothes. One of the popular color combinations is lavender and pink. These colors are irresistible to me because they bring up memories of Easter egg hunts and little girls in their Sunday best.  This outfit would be perfect for spending time with your family before or after Easter.  

Kicking It

Spring is officially here and that means goodbye heavy jackets and hello vests! They are my go to for when I need a little more warmth and are flattering by skimming your curves. You can get them in every color and pattern to mix and match with any outfit.

They are best in the spring and fall months when you are looking to add layers. Choosing a thinner vest lets you avoid too much bulk and then you can add a heaver sweater or button down underneath. I have to admit I have quite a few!

Girl on Fire

I love a good action film. The speed and intensity that the film rolls through the story line always captures me. I’m late watching it but I finally got a chance to see Catching Fire and I loved it. I was a fan of the books and I’m glad that the movie lived up to my expectations.

I created my own version of a “Girl on Fire” dress that you could wear to a formal event and capture a little bit of Katniss Everdine.
