Very Versatile

Look of the Day:

Here is a look that can be worn to work with no problem. But then it will also work nicely for an evening out as well. It's fun, but conservative and classic too. The colored shoes make this outfit perfect for an evening out, but they don't over power it making it be able to work in an office setting. I love the old fashioned, yet updated, feel of this outfit. I also think it appears to be high fashion, but these pieces are all very reasonably priced!

Attending a Spring/Summer Evening Wedding?

So a couple for my readers have weddings to attend in the near future. They are both evening weddings and are on the verge of Spring and Summer. I found this dress at Macy's and think its just perfect for a wedding. It comes in Yellow and Black. I think the yellow would work for both a daytime and an evening wedding. But the black would only work for the evening. The accessories I have matched with it would go with both colors. If all the colors are too bold for you, but you want to go with the yellow dress, you may opt for brown strappy shoes or pumps and gold accessories. Or you can stick with the silver shoes and add silver accessories. Whatever your taste may be! I don't recommend using a necklace when wearing a high neckline like this. Instead go for some larger earrings to draw focus upwards.

Pulling off Leggings

Look of the Day:
Not everyone can pull off the leggings trend. And many want to, but don't know how! Well there are so many cute tunics in most stores right now, and most of those tunics would pair well with leggings. It might just be a matter of taking some time and trying on a variety of different combos to see what will work for you. Here is a great combo I have thrown together for spring. And the tunic will last you through summer as well! With this outfit I went for the boho chic/ Mary-Kate Olsen look. If you want to try this outfit for summer, replace the boots for some cute flip flops!
