Summer Capsule Collection: The Jumpsuit

 A must have for this season's summer capsule is the playful, sleek, figure flattering jumpsuit.

 The Jumpsuit in my opinion is a fantastic alternative to maxi dresses. It's refreshing to see someone wearing a jumpsuit in a sea of maxis.

 I was talking to a friend that had asked about what to wear for her hourglass figure that is current. She works hard at the gym and would love to show off her tiny little waist but she's not crazy about her bum or her arms. We talked a little about peplums and flowy wide leg pants-which are a style staple this summer- and parted ways. Later that evening, while shopping online for a client, it dawned on me how flattering and current a jumpsuit would be for an hourglass figure. Actually, on all figures depending on the style of the jumpsuit. (even for mamas to be!)

Before we proceed, don't fret! Maxis are a style staple this summer. Consider the jumpsuit it's sleeker and sexier sister.

Pros:

  • Unlike a maxi dress, jumpsuits automatically flatter your waistline
  • They elongate your frame so you appear taller
  • They come in so many styles: casual, dressy, wide leg, skinny, long sleeve, sleeveless, even formal.
Cons:
  • peeing would be a bitch in a jumpsuit so watch your liquid intake
  • don't get it the same day you want to wear it, you will most likely have to get it hemmed
Style Tip:
  • Go from day to night by adding a fancy clutch and stilettos. Watch out date night!

Apps and Sites: Currently Stalking

Feeling overwhelmed and not sure which blog, brand, newsletter you should follow? Because the hundreds of catchy headers delivered to your inbox can take you days to sort out, leaving you more confused than ever. 

I have found a couple of pretty useful sites and apps that you might like!


SHOPPING

What if someone took all customer reviews for products and condensed it to create top 10 lists through an algorithm? That is what the folks at Rank&Style do!  Out looking for the best black eye pencil? Problem Solved! Looking for a steal versus a splurge? Problem Solved! I love how they cut to the chase and even have links to purchase what you see on their top 10 lists. 

So you like Pinterest for it's blogger outfits but not thrilled about clicking and re-clicking, then reading and clicking again so you can finally get to the shopping page for the product you want? Enter Keep, I personally use the app all the time to seek out gift and home decor products. It's a great shopping app that is simple.
 Under the product shot there are 3 buttons you can click: "keep", "like", or "buy"(this button takes you directly to the site where you can purchase).


STYLE STALKING

This is an oldie but a goody for me for when I just want to scroll through outfits visually for inspiration without reading their entire blog post. I don't mean for you to follow every supermodel and celebrity out there, I would suggest following users(bloggers,friends,brands,boutiques) that post their personal styles on the app. When you are done stalking them, unfollow them. No friend request on publicly shared accounts or email subscription needed #hashtagsrock

This is where bloggers from all over the world post their outfits. If you like the look, you can shop the look as well. The looks can be a bit trendy at times appealing mainly to the twenty to early thirty crowd. If you want some street style inspiration, this is the app to check out.

Conquering Monday Mornings

Monday mornings are chaotic at our home. Who am I kidding, all mornings are chaotic. Dragging the kids out of bed, dragging myself out of bed…there is often crying, shouting, and pouting involved. Needless to say that leaving rushing out of the house looking decent can be quite a challenge. Trying to elevate your "mom" outfit is daunting when all you want to do is drop the kids off in your jammies.

My 2 picks for looking like you actually had some time in the morning? Go for a brighter shade of lipstick or gloss(one shade brighter than your normal color) and add a scarf to your outfit. The scarf will add depth to your outfit.

Great minds think alike?

It's funny, but not that funny when you go wine tasting  get together with your girlfriends on a warm & sunny afternoon to find out:

1) They are all wearing maxis
2) They all have paired it with a denim jacket-Thank.You. Pinterest!

I was almost guilty of it too but decided it wasn't going to be a practical outfit for me. So I went with something else.

Although a denim jacket + maxi go great together-I am sure you all have this combo pinned on your boards, this duo has now become the go to outfit for everyone that decides to wear a maxi.

Here are some other options to consider pairing your maxis with:
Cardigan or Sweater: Long or short, layering a sweater with your maxi will give it a casual cool look.
Leather Jacket: Pairing your maxi with a leather jacket is a great option for a day to night outfit or if you want to add some edge.
Denim Vest: The alternative to the denim jacket. 
Blazer: Wear a blazer with the sleeves scrunched up.
Bomber: This spring/summer's trend jacket comes in a variety of styles.

Must Have: The New Flats

When it comes to shoes, do you have conflicted feeling about flats?
