New Coral Court

July 28, 2014
featured image

Those of you that have followed the blog when it was on Blogger will probably  see some of the most prominent changes I made. I have been switching between many banners because I was never happy with them. I wanted one that was truly original and I have found it. I asked my cousin, Rachel, who is a graphic designer if she would make me a new one. I was blown away with the talent that she has and how without really any instruction, she captured exactly what I wanted. We then narrowed it down, tweaked the colors a little and decided on my current one. I absolutely love it!

The color schemes are a bit different too. I decided to go with basically all black, with a little gray, and an accent color of coral.I think this layout and color scheme gives it a cleaner look.

I added new social sharing buttons to the bottom of my posts with the last button being where you can click to read or leave a comments. There is also a comment box after each post so that you do not have to open the post up to leave one.

More Highlights

  • The blog subscribe button moved from a sidebar drop-down menu to its own page with different ways to stay connected to the blog.
  • I added a “latest post” box to the side so that you could get access to them there and the top three featured images at the top of the page are from the last three posts.
  • The social media buttons are in the top bar, as well as the search button.
  • Some of my most recent instagram posts are displayed in the sidebar.

I hope you all like the changes that I made to it. Check back tomorrow for another way this blog is getting a makeover!

As summer approached, I started taking my bright colored items out of storage and picked up a few new items to mix into my wardrobe. However, to avoid looking like Joseph and the technicolor dreamcoat, I made sure that I still left neutrals in my closet. I love the minimalist and clean look that wearing a wide spectrum of nude tones can give an outfit.

Be sure to check out my favorite pieces below for some inspiration…

I’m mad at myself for taking so long to post about one of my new favorite design firms, Poketo. They have stationary, jewelry, and home goods.  I am in awe of this husband and wife team’s creativity, talent, and uniqueness. I have so many favorites from the colored pencils to the pillows and medium monthly planner. I think you all with love these objects. They are being featured right now as Nordstroms “pop in” shop but their website has many more items to choose from.

 Check out some of my other favorites below…

Hello sunshine and sundresses! This summer  one essential piece in every girl’s wardrobe and a must have is the little white dress. Ever since summer has started, I have been switching up trends every week. It was first neon colors, then prints (geometric, floral, graphics) and now it is the summer in white! 

A short white mini dress is the perfect choice for a summer event(just not a wedding). It looks simple and classy. For a bit more fun, go with colored or patterned heels. For chilly evenings, throw on a leather jacket and some sunkissed tights to make those tanned legs really show.

Hanes Hosiery is giving away two pairs of their sunkissed tights for two CC readers. Leave me a comment below and tell me what your favorite summer trend is for a chance to win!

Tagline: Your Makeover Needs a Makeover

For your viewing pleasure, there is a new network FYI™ that covers stories and experiences from how people live their lives to following their passions. It will have seven new original series including a lifestyle makeover series about a team from New York and their larger than life boss, Jonathan Bodrick. The show is called  B.O.R.N. to Style which stands for borrowed, old, refurbished, and new. I’m sure all of us have at least one piece of clothing from those four categories. The style gurus(Jonathan Bodrick, Brandon Hood, JJ Langan,Kirsten Brown,Terry Artis, and Devin Stokes) from the Harlem boutique help clients go through their belongings and assist them in adding some style and color to their lives. The fashion forward and fabulous team asks brutally honest questions and eventually transforms their entire look.  This show is the definition of retail therapy.

 

Be sure to check out the trailer below:

 

B.O.R.N. to Style  premieres Tuesday, 7/15 @10p EST, on FYI Network.

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by FYI Network through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about B.O.R.N. to Style, all opinions are my own.
