Pretty in plaid!

As fashion experts tell us, plaid is not just for lumberjacks anymore! Although there are  A LOT of super hideous button down plaid shirts that people will NEVER convince me are cute, regardless of what store sells them, there are some super cute and feminine looks you can create with a plaid pattern that should not be passed up due to the masses of bad-plaid out there. So here is my slaute today to pretty plaid!

Terrific Tuesday Tops from Target!

Target has some really fantastic tops this season which are perfect for any occasion and any budget! Throw on a skirt or slacks for work, change into jeans/capris/shorts/casual skirt when you get home and you are going to look cute no matter what! Love these tops and Im definitely loving the low prices, yay for Target.

Target Tops

On Target for your budget

I stumbled upon a treasure trove of fashionable clothes today while perusing... you will never guess....! They have a lot of patterns, colors, and styles, all of which would be great for the many summer events coming our way as the rain lets up and warm weather sets it. Ive never been much of one for clothes shopping at "all-in-one" stores but they seem to have a great selection of super cute clothes in their summer line which are definitely worth checking out.

*Note however, I am 5'11 and the majority of their dresses do not hit my knee. Great for all of you average sized people out there however!

Embelish your AE T's!

American Eagle has some great summer T's (left) that would be perfect for embelishing with flowers like the Jcrew T's below (center & right). They have several styles and even a few in the clearance section that are an extra 30% off right now! I love the idea of wearing a comfy tee and sprucing it up a little with embelishments. You could even buy pre-made flowers or other shapes and hand sew them onto your T's in a matter of minutes, creating a unique and fun look without putting in a lot of money or time.  So many possibilities out there my friends, so lets go get creative!

Get cute and creative with belts

I have been thinking a lot about belts lately and although I don't really wear them other than to keep my pants up, I am super loving them on other people and trying to become brave enough to try them out myself. Whether over a shirt, tunic or dress, belts are a great way to accent your waist, add some extra color and bling to a simple outfit, and generally just super cute! Here are some colorful and creative belts I have found lately:

Lady in red

A friend of mine sent this gorgeous dress idea to me and I think its simply fabulous, especially for us tall girls! Its a great length and a beautiful pattern that can be dolled up with heels or dressed down with sandals for any occasion. I also think its completely adorable that the model is not wearing any shoes in this picture :)

The power of accessories

Behold the power of accessories! Downeast took this yellow shirt and turned it into an AMAZING outfit with their great accessories (which will be available at the end of the month! YAY!)


Taking a cue from their great ideas, I decided to accessorize the pink version of this shirt which I think turned out pretty cute as well. Accessories really can make or break an outfit and with this great thin summer shirt, they definitely make it.

Summer Chic in Shorts

Its supposed to get up to 80 degrees here in Delaware today, WHEW that is a hot Spring day! These high temps have me shoving away my favorite jean capris and looking for shorts to keep me from melting. This outfit is #1 on my list for the upcoming days calling for high temps and high fashion!

Best summer tanks

The heat has me thinking about summer which makes me think about BBQ's, Picnics, and trips to the beach. It also makes me think about the sweltering heat and my favorite essentials to get me through the high temps.

Shade clothing has some of the best modest tank tops I have seen on the market. They do not shrink, fade, or unravel at the hem in my experience. They come in a fantastic array of bright and neutral colors which are perfect under any see-through summer shirt, short-sleeved cardigan, or just to add coverage and length to your favorite shirts. They are also great for beach and hiking trips, keeping you cooled off and still modestly covered. At 3 for 30$ they are a great deal for stocking up on essentials for all seasons.

Downeast Dots

Got a case of the Mondays? Not when you wear this shirt to work! How can you be cranky when you look great and have giant white polka dots on you? Seriously loving this new button up shirt from Downeast Basics. Perfect for work or casual events, very flattering with a feminine cut, AND its long! I can't tell you how hard it is to find a button up shirt that hits below my waistband. Love love love it!

The Springtime Blues

You know how sometimes its not about matching your shoes to your favorite outfit, but rather its about finding an outfit that compliments those awesome shoes? Well, that is how I feel about this blue scarf from Shade. It comes in 3 different colors and is so darn cute I just want to build a whole set of outfits completely around it. This one for instance... simple, comfortable, and super chic when you add this great scarf to finish off the look. AND it completely compliments one of my favorite pair of flowery Rocket Dog flats which makes it even more amazing in my book since I apparently have a Rocket Dog obsession :)

Perfect Spring Dress from Downeast Basics

This flowery and colorful dress is, in my opinion, the perfect Spring dress for any occasion, espec. as the graduation and wedding seasons approach. The colorful pattern needs few accessories and looks great with a pair of colored pumps and a classy handbag. Downeast dresses tend to hit at the knees, even for most of us tall girls, which is another reason I love their clothing. Modest, classy, and affordable... great combination! Totally on my wishlist for this Spring/Summer!


Favorite Shade of Yellow!

Shade clothing just keeps coming out with the best new looks for Spring! I am completely in love with this new white and yellow sweater! Dressed up with a skirt or casual with your favorite pair of capris, this super feminine and flattering sweater is a must have for my Spring wardrobe and hopefully yours too!
