Statement Coats

I believe a coat should be functional as well as a fashion statement. More than that, it should say something about the individual wearing it.  Here’s a fun way to choose your new outer wear.

Personality types & coats….

The Realist….something structured and classic keep in her stylish and warm. Military style suits her well.

The Dreamer… she’s mooning for her Prince Charming as she steps out in a pretty  princess cut coat.

The Rocker…moto jackets and animal prints are a MUST HAVE.

The Bohemian…. this girl’s a free spirit.  She’s not afraid of the cold. Fun faux fur caresses her.

Preppy… think collegiate. Plaids rule!

Artsy….she’s creative so what better way to express herself than a cape. Better yet when she adds a brooch for flair!

Sporty….Winter sports are calling her.  Grabbing a puffer jacket & matching gloves and hat & she’s off to the slopes!

Summer Style Tips

Hey loves!!!

I hope you’ve been enjoying some gorgeous weather. When the temps rise, the first thing I think is what  can I wear that will keep me cool? So today I want to share some summer style tips with you to keep you looking cool as a cucumber.

Style Tip 1:  Wear loose clothing. Think flowing dresses, maxi skirts, A line tops. Cool colors verses darks. I say reach for cool colors during the day & save your darks for the evenings. Cool colors do not absorb heat and thus will keep you feeling refreshed.

Style Tip 2: Wear natural fibers. Invest in cottons, silks, or linens for summer months. They let your skin breath.

Style Tip 3: Break out those open toed shoes and sandals. I can’t wait for summer to arrive so I can wear my favorite shoes!!

Style Tip 4: Stay hydrated. I know this seems like a no brainer, but sometimes we get busy and forget to drink enough water. It is especially important to get enough water during warmer weather to keep our skin and complexions healthy.

Style Tip 5: Sunscreen. Wear it! I am the first to admit, I do not slather the stuff on like I should and some day it WILL catch up to me. Skin cancer is NOT pretty and I know all my girls want to stay pretty.

Style Tip 6: Protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Believe it or not, squinting due to bright sunlight, increases your chance of fine lines around the eye area.

Style Tip 7: Go easy of the fragrances.  Just a spritz during warm months is enough because as your body temperature rises your fragrance will grow stronger.

Hope these little tips help to keep you nice and cool this summer. Have your own summer style tip to share? Leave it in the comment section below to share.

Love,

Hello lovely!
I hope you are experiencing some pleasant weather where you live. It has been extremely warm here in the Pittsburgh area. There has been sunshine and a slight breeze which means the winds of change are here. Springtime will be here soon.
 I thought a pretty style board was just the thing to inspire us all. What are you looking forward to wearing once the weather breaks? I am excited to begin wearing pretty sleeveless tops and open toed sandals.
This spring expect to find an abundance of pretty floral prints. And of course loads of greens which by now you already know is Pantone’s ,the color experts, color of 2017.
I can’t wait to share more with you dear reader. In the meantime, stay stylish and blessed.
Debra
