Let’s Get High (Waisted Swimwear)

High waisted swim suit bottoms could quite possibly be the best swim trend to ever return. Slimming and comfy (if you invest in a well-fitting suit), slightly modest but still totally sexy, I dove right into this trend. (Ok, I’m done with the puns, now, I swear.)

Sweatshirt Weather

The polar vortex might be over, but it’s 20 degrees and snowy here in Pittsburgh, so I think it still qualifies as sweatshirt weather. Did I mention that this is the best trend, ever?…Second only, maybe, to luxe sweatpants….

3 Ways to Style…A Neon Scarf

A neon scarf is the simplest (and maybe most inexpensive) way I’m updating my spring wardrobe for the transition into summer. Pair it with other brights… or back to classic neutrals. Mix prints and have fun with it!

3 Ways to Style…a Maxi Skirt

If you’re like me, you bought a maxi skirt last season…when they were finally on sale. The good news? You’ll still see lots of maxi dresses and skirts around this spring too. The bad news? Maxi skirts are still just as hard to style as they were last year. My biggest trouble is figuring out the proper shoes, but I think my best bet is a espadrille wedge, a Capri sandal, or a classic pair of flats. Add in a touch of tribal patterns, and who would ever guess you had  trouble styling that skirt?
