girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.

In the home stretch

You all can give us the “worst bloggers ever” award, our posting (of lack thereof) is inexcusable.

Having only one camera at our disposal is challenging, but we are in it to win it now!

four ways on a fri.-sweats

four ways on a fri.
Do you ever have those laaaaazy days? The days where you want to stay in your pjs all day and be completely unproductive?  Well, instead of wearing those embarrassing garfield pajama pants, I found a more stylish solution.  Those tribal-y sweatpants from LuLu’s are quite cute and will you look at that?  You can look put together, even when you’re feeling absolutely lackadaisical.

Wishlist Wed-Spring Time Shopping

Wishlist Wed-Spring Time
      Even with the weather being unpredictable, I cannot stop thinking about shopping for spring time!  But my shopping trip must be delayed until April because the 30×30 challenge is coming up for March!  Not to worry, the deets will be discussed later.
       I love that a trend for this spring is going to be colorful and playful bottoms.  Personally, I am waiting for the coral-y colored AE jeans to go on sale, and I’m on the look out for cheaper versions of the floral print jeans.  Flats, espadrilles or heels, you name it!  This spring I plan to expand my collection of shoes, and move into brighter footwear.  Spring in Arizona is when you know to get prepared for summer, and I plan to enter summer in breezy dresses, long or short.  But isn’t that romper amaze as well?
What do you want for Spring?
