the old saying ‘april showers bring may flowers’ hit close to home today as severe weather ripped through georgia. there was a lot of rain and a lot of thunder that rolled through town leaving behind lots of water drenched yards. but that didn’t stop mr. style and i from taking our photos. although, i’m guessing my footwear might change once i step outside. if i step outside…
as you can see the photo shoot was taken indoors as i wanted to share a style tip or two with you as i dip my toe into trendy waters. unless you have been living under a rock you know that statement sleeves are all the rage this spring. but i hadn’t pulled the trigger yet as i’m fairly certain this trend will come and go fairly quickly. but they are darn cute and could spruce up my spring wardrobe. that said, when considering passing trends i take several things into account.
style tip #1. when i’m indecisive about a current trend i typically head to a fast fashion store. or better yet, target, to find an affordable version of said fad without investing major cashola. and target was just where i found this trendy shirt with over-sized cuffs, cute button details, and is off shoulder to boot.
style tip #2. marry classic with trendy. that’s right, i try to sneak in at least one classic detail. this shirt actually has two. can you guess? yes, stripes, and in particular navy stripes are quintessentially classic.
style tip #3. anytime you wear something tight a.k.a skinny jeans pair it with something loose or flowing. this gives balance to your outfit and a bit of pizazz.
style tip #4. to tuck or untuck. now, that’s completely up to you. either way looks great!
there you have it, ladies, several ways on how i keep my wardrobe current and modern.
