Spring Trends- Black and White with Stripes

As promised, we are going to focus on spring.  As I write this, it is raining and thundering in Iowa, in January!  And nothing makes me think of spring more than cold rain!
It is no surprise that black and white is a trend for spring.  I think this could go on rotation every year.  What makes it different this year?  Adding in the combination of stripes.  Stripes are everywhere.  And I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you don’t own a black and white striped t-shirt, your wardrobe is missing out!
This spring, add in a little striped sporty dress to your rotation.  Sporty dresses are another big spring hit.  But instead of wearing them with flats or sneakers, wear them with a serious sandal. 
Take this outfit to an outdoor cafe, a bed and breakfast weekend, a picnic lunch date or a walk through the trees when they bloom.
Isn’t it fun to think about spring?

Green With Envy

It’s the start of a new week and although I’d love to keep taking vacations across the map, I thought I’d do a little stint on how to rework pieces in your wardrobe.  So we’ll call it, one item, three ways. 
For today, I’ll show you how to take a dress and wear it casually, for something slightly dressier and then how to dress it up. 
Let’s take this dress.  First pair it with a few casual accessories, especially the sandals and you have a bunch outfit.  For a girls’ lunch, change your accessories to metallic and add a wedge shoe.  And lastly, for date night, add some high heels and some delicate accessories.
Isn’t it great how you can get so many looks from one dress?  I have to admit, whomever owns this fantastic number is making me a little green with envy.
