For brunch last weekend, I wanted to channel my inner sex kitten. So for me that’s a turtleneck bodysuit, high waist flare jeans and my never letting go leopard booties. The first day of Spring reminded me a whole lot of Winter, a high of 32 degrees. Which means, I couldn’t leave the house without my faux fur!
When I wear flares, I like my shoes to peek out just a little bit, that’s why I went with an average high heel for me -about 3 – 3 1/2 inches instead of my usual 4-5 inches. As a short girl, I can have a short girl complex so I like to wear heels as often as my feet desire. The bodysuit trend is alive and well into Spring and it’s really taking over my brain and closet, especially when there is high waist involved. I can’t get enough!
How do you accentuate your figure? What Spring trends are you most excited about?

I am so in love with bodysuits right now! There are so many different styles to choose from; from tanks, turtlenecks, to low back cuts, and strapless. This one from The Reformation is laced up and budget-friendly. 🙂 Instead of black, I chose this cocoa color to compliment my skin tone. I never realized how easy going and comfortable bodysuits are. You don’t have to worry about constantly tucking in your shirt! The job’s done for you, lol. Today’s look was completed with a pencil skirt and knee high boots.
Will you be wearing bodysuits this ‘Summer is officially here’ weekend?
When we think about 70’s fashion, we envision bell bottoms, bold prints, and very high wedge sandals. I took all three of these images and made it into one modern day outfit. I paired it with a biker jacket and classic wayfarers for a fresh spin on my otherwise very retro look.
How do you think I pulled off my second 70’s groovy-ness? What Spring trends have you tried lately?
Hope everyone has a groovy week!

Mourning the early dismissal of summer in all black. That time in between seasons is always questionable for me especially with Fall. Do you tone down your colors or do you ride out that neon until September 21st? When you’re walking into Fall weather and you’re just too lazy to pair your summer tones with the upcoming season’s color palette, just count on black to stay on trend. Now I don’t mean do this all the time or give up completely. In a bodysuit and jeans you can still look put together without trying too hard while you’re still trying to figure out your Fall wardrobe. Add a simple, but sleek pump and a blazer for a polished look. I prefer deep v neck bodysuits and this one from American Apparel has a thong back which I prefer…no panty lines!
How was everyone’s Labor Day weekend? Are you ready for Fall?
As the summer moves along, you can’t help but to bring out the little bit of color you’ve already built up. Always choose a neon hue that compliments your skin tone; mine is hot pink or fuchsia.Today I double dosed on neon pairing the blazer with my Prabal Gurung for Target pumps for a top and bottom spark. Adding denim is one way to balance out the two colors without overwhelming or clashing the outfit. Adding a grey bodysuit like I did here is another way you can tone down the colors even more. If you want to wear a white or black top, stick to one neon color. I wear little or no jewelry when I’m in a highlighting mood, but feel free to accessorize as you wish.
