This fall, forget the traditional UGG boot, and opt for something more primitive - The Moccasin!! I love these shoes! They can be worn with skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, alone with shorts or a skirt. They go with everything!! The best part is, they look worn and comfy and they really are!! Love the knotted yearn top and the leather sole! I found the Moccasins pictured above on http://www.freepeople.com and they retail for $89!! A great shoe of choice for this Fall's most unkempt look!
I have just started out as a Stella & Dot Stylist. And at the Trunk Shows I have had I noticed that while most people are in love with all the bold statement necklaces the first thing I hear (after wow I love this) is “How do I wear it?”
A by product of being big, bold and sometimes colourful, the statement necklace can come off as being intimidating to style.
Realistically a statement necklace can just be thrown on, just like anything else. But if you are looking to put a bit more thought into it
here are some tips:
1. Keep your top, blouse or dress simple. A colourful statement necklace is almost like a pattern all its own. The most sure-fire way to have your necklace pop is to pair it with a plain white tee or blouse.
2 Statement necklaces made of metals or crystals are more neutral (the colours aren’t going to clash with anything) so you can pair them with prints, stripes, or try a tone on tone look.
3. Keep the neckline of your top or dress unadorned. That means no lattice work, beading or details that might already be mistaken for a statement necklace.
4. Just like mixing prints, you can wear a bold necklace with a bold top. If you are wearing colourful beads or semiprecious stones, pick a necklace that is made of colours that are already seen in the print.
I remember my Mother & Grandmother's nails as I was growing up. They were always kept long, pointed and painted. I on the other hand have mostly kept my nails shorter, rounded and usually clean of polish. What I have never liked about nail polish is the up keep. Chipped nails are unsightly and I could never keep myself from picking at it once my nails did chip.
But I have found as I have gotten older I have fallen for doing my nails more often. And the new nail art trends make doing your nails even more fun.
Still with two kids most of the nail art that I adore is too time consuming. Don't even get me started on how long it takes to dry a decent coat of glitter polish. One nail trend that I have been testing out is playing with multicoloured nails. Try doing your hand mostly in one colour but one nail on each hand in a contrasting colour. Or try going from light to dark in the same colour pallet.
Multicoloured nails are also fun for little girls. My daughter loves getting her fingers painted and the more colours the better.
