Nude

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…

Summer Style for under $50 at Meijer

All of their jewelry was on-sale- buy 2, get 1 free. Their stack-able bracelets were right on trend and their statement necklaces would be great staple pieces for any outfit.

These clutches are the perfect item to take to a fair, park or music festival this summer. My personal favorite is the neon pink and orange color block purse.

Stock up on essential camisoles, tank tops, and short sleeve shirts. These are a great way to add some color into your wardrobe. Throw on a statement necklace that is on sale and you are good to go!

Usually when I think of shopping at Meijer, I think of buying some groceries, maybe picking up some hair ties and browsing the magazine section but it wasn’t until recently that I realized that Meijer gave its apparel section a major makeover. There are styles that I have seen featured in department stores from color-blocking patterns to fringe bags to crop tops.   I was able to find products to put together an entire outfit from the clothes, jewelry, and sandals and it all ended up being under $50 with their Summer Clearance event.  In addition to picking up some affordable high-style clothes, I picked up my basic clothing necessities (camis, solid shirts, and a few graphic tees) for a reasonable price. Check out my favorites from the sale above and head over to your nearest Meijer store to shop their summer clearance event!

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.

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:
