Hello, again, fashionable friends!
Let’s get back into the blogging grind with some flowery fun…
Flowers have been on trend since, well, the first woman came into existence. Can’t you just imagine Eve with a garland of daises atop her perfectly placed tresses? Even now Princess Kate Middleton gracefully exits the hospital adorned in spring-inspired florals.
Although the floral trend is time tested and celebrity approved, there are some rules to donning herbaceous threads.
Rule #1 – Don’t overdo it.
Remember the pregnant Kim Kardashian and her rose garden disaster? Although I love the shape of the dress, she looks like a floating head in a sea of poorly placed rosettes. Instead, let’s look for something with a flattering shape and appropriately placed blooms (i.e. Eva Mendes).
Rule #2 – Florals aren’t just for the fancy.
Florals can be a great go-to for a feminine take on running errands. Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Mendes, Reese Witherspoon, and Jessica Alba use flowery frocks all the time to update an otherwise basic look. Here are a few fun examples:

Rule #3 – Keep the floral pasties UNDER a fabulous top.
Good morning, fashionable friends!
Summer is slowly coming to a close as we prepare for new school schedules and cooler temperatures. So, even if it isn’t time to put away those shorts and pull out the parkas, it is nearly time for the implementation of the transitional wardrobe.
Transitional wardrobes are a girl’s best friend. Transitional wardrobes are a blend of pieces from warmer weather clothing and cooler weather clothing. With layers, you can be prepared for the first bits of cooler weather while still maintaining an appropriate style for the hotter moments of the day that are yet to let our sweaty selves be.
Although everyone is familiar with layering, Miranda Kerr is the queen of modern transitional dress. She has mastered color pallets, fabrics, and flirty styles while managing to remain appropriate for any woman to imitate on a daily basis. Here are just a few of her transitional wardrobe styles
In any one of these photos, a layer or two could be removed to make the outfits more warm weather friendly. Also, the end of summer time also means a rush to wear all of those nautical inspired items that we bought for summer (i.e. blue and white striped sweater, etc.).
The other thing that makes Miranda Kerr’s wardrobe so functional is that her statement pieces (i.e. cropped leather jacket, utility jacket, booties, neutral totes, etc.) are timeless and appropriate for all seasons. Summer may not yet be over, but it’s time to start preparing for some stylish layers.
Miranda Kerr is well known for having impeccable taste in clothes. She’s always well dressed and her picks are flattering in nearly every instance.
Today’s inspirational picture has been chosen in honor of fall and the cooler weather. The classic trench doubled with some easy to wear, casual pieces makes for a great on-the-go look. Keep makeup simple and hair understated with this look – even a cute topknot would do nicely.
Happy shopping, fashionable friends!

I love Miranda Kerr’s street style and I think that she is a great inspiration for those of us seeking to turn heads while running errands.
Today’s style inspiration focuses on flattering the female figure in all the right places and giving the impression of fresh, easy to wear fashion.
Since Miranda Kerr’s fabulous top isn’t quite in our <$100 budget, I came up with a few fabulous alternatives. Have fun with this look as it is as fluid as ever and can be adjusted to fit your mood for whatever day you choose to sport it.
The key to this look is a pair of perfectly fitted white trousers matched with a flowy printed top. The top should add interest to the look while maintaining a casual shape and letting the pants do the work of showing off your beautiful curves.
