Blog : stripes

You better believe there’s a cupcake shop behind me! That’s right, those eyes are fixed on only one thing… a goat cheese cupcake that was everything I wanted it to be!! (For real though guys, a goat cheese cupcake is like my dream come true! More on the tastiest cupcake shop will be featured on my blog soon!) And oh yeah – these pants are also pretty great! 😏 Easy, breezy, stripey & paired perfectly with a cotton tank! Don’t mind if I do!!

Backside details. This top from @madewell is an all time fav! I’ve had it for a while but it will never get old. I hope to inspire you with the layering of these 2 fun pieces – they’re awesome solo but together they offer a completely different look! (I mean that striped top with cutoffs and a bralette though! So good.) That’s what’s so fun about my job, exploring your wardrobe to discover the killer outfits you don’t even know are hiding in your closet!

Stripes on stripes, yaaaassss!! Structured skirt & althleisure top? Don’t mind if I do! There are some great sales around (hey, heeey end of season!) and some super fun spring styles are surfacing! If you’re not sure where to start, need some specific new pieces for your wardrobe or have an upcoming event or vacation, shoot me an email! We can set up some personal shopping and styling sessions! (And usually include wine, lunch, coffee, girl talk and lots of laughing as well!) Happy Friday ya filthy animals!!

Shall we start dabbling in spring layering?! 😍 it’s almost time to lose the chunky, oversized sweaters and the wool socks for keeping those piggies warm! (Yeah, almost time… I was completely freezing in this picture. Waaahh!!) Stripes are always a good idea! You can go with horizontal or vertical, mix stripes with floral or layer striped pieces together, there are always fun options when it comes to stripes and they can be worn to compliment all body types! (This one has more fun detailing on the back! Stay tuned for a post showing those details soon!!)
Love stripes. Love converse. Love those cozy jeans! Bring it spring, I’m ready!!

So, I was doing a series on this black and white shirt – 3 ways to style a cotton long sleeved shirt. (That’s why it’s been on repeat in my feed!) It’s a practical item most people have in their closet, if not – snag one guys! It’s such an easy shirt to wear different ways and stripes are always a good choice! This one’s from Gap.
Peruse through my previous posts to see how else it’s been simply styled!
Also, this beanie is my favorite thing everrrr! It’s the best solution to morning drop off at school when my hair is a hot mess. I put it on, look in the mirror, evil laugh and think, “baaahahah I’ll fool them all!!” Fashion is something I love! But it has to accommodate my lifestyle which means it must be functional! Keep following along for lots of practical ways to keep up with trends and the affordable places to buy them without having to starve for a week to make it happen! 📷 @helloimemmaquinn

Simpler outfits are my jam! They are super easy to wear casual or super easy to nip and tuck (or in this case, knot and throw on some fuuurrrrr) to make a little more sassy! I like sassy, sassy feels good. Some times sassy makes me feel like I can conquer the world, or at least my day – picking up kids and buying groceries is a lot more fun when I wear fur and burgundy lipstick! So, why not?! Step outside of your comfort zone and sass things up my friends! Feel alive!
Start with an accessory that’s a little louder than your used to! Maybe a statement earring, a fur scarf, a top knot… on the top, like all the way up there! Or maybe start with going one shade more vibrant on your lips! You got this!! And then selfie it & tag me, because feeling confident is worth sharing and I wanna see you shine! 📷 by @helloimemmaquinn
