Wedding Colors: Navy, Silver, and Grey

My friend in Heber asked me to put together some options for her to wear to a wedding in a few weeks. The colors are Navy Blue, Silver, and Grey. She already found the grey skirt from Down East Basics which is adoreable! LOVE IT!!! Here are 2 outfits I came up with.

For Styling: I would only button the middle 3 buttons of the cardigan so you can show off the ruffles on the tank OR even leave it unbuttoned for a more casual look. Can you guess which one I would choose????

My new favorite website!

I just heard about this website and Im so stoked about it! I have shopped in the Tilly's store a couple years ago while we were in California vsiting. And I remember LOVING the clothes and the PRICES! But then I forgot about it thinking it was just a cool California store I would have to hit up next time we were in town. But my sister pointed out that they have an online store. LOVE IT!!!! Here are my favorite items as I was browsing last night. And several of them have made it to my Christmas list. Hint Hint Isaac: once again I am making life easy for you to shop for me. Just click the picture and it will take you to the checkout :)

Funniest part is after I saved all my pictures to my post I realize that everything I LOVED are ALL neutrals. Grays, and Blacks....At least with neutrals you can spice things up with color in your accessories right!

Tights and Playing With Color!

This one is for Adrianne :) You are going to look hot tomorrow in your floral tights!!!

I am obsessed right now with colored tights! I love how this Kate Spade model wore a big polka dot blouse with yellow tights. LOVE it!!! (the next 4 images VIA she is with such a cute mini polka dot dress with green tights. LOVE it!!! I have been on the hunt for some mustard colored tights like these but have yet to find a cheap pair :( But dont worry it will happen and I will keep you posted!And this outfit just makes me happy. I love that she is mixing black and white fabrics then throws in a red belt and red stillettos to add some color! LOVE THIS!!!!Now its my turn :) Im going to break it down for you on how cheap these outfits are by using what you have in your closet and just buying little accessories to make your outfit look more fashion forward when styled right.

The dress I bought at Target for $6 bucks on clearance. It was an XL and I took in the sides. No I am not a seamstress....I just did a straight stitch up both sides. Super easy! The cardigan is an old one from Old Navy, the belt is from Forever 21 $5, plum tights are from Payless $5, and the shoes are old cheapies from Forever Young Shoe Store.This blouse was $3 at a neighborhood garage sale, same belt and cardigan as shown above, the skirt is more pricey its from Banana but a good skirt is a staple. It will always be in style and I dont mind going big on a purchase when it is something that will last forever. The gray floral tights $5 from Target and again same shoes as shown above.The models at the beginning of my post inspired me to mix yellow and green so I had to try it. I LOVE this new cardigan. I got it from Target $18, same ruffle blouse from garage sale, tweed skirt from Forever Young $20, and green tights from Target $5. Ok now that I see it on honestly the green is a little much...according to my husband I looked like the midgets on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He HATED it! LOL :)So instead I toned it down with my boots and FELL in LOVE again with my original idea! Love it!!!Dont be afraid to try out some funky tights. If its your first time wearing them go simple with your outfit (solid colors and patterns) and then as you get more comfortable with mixing colors and patterns "Mondo Style" play around with it and just have fun!

Family Picture Fashion

I am SOOOOO excited about this design board!!!! My friend came over today and was talking about her family pictures and how stressed she was about what to wear and I of course got super excited :) We went to my computer and she showed me the things she had already bought and we went from there. It was SO much fun! Her original items were her daughters grey ruffle dress, her sons black and grey argyle sweater, and her baby boys tan sweater with the leather patches. LOVE it! She also had her Union jacket from DownEast Basics. All really cute stuff but the problem was they were all tans, blacks, and greys. She needed color BAD! So here is what I came up with. I LOVE it!!!! The best part is we found everything at Target, Old Navy, Gap, and DownEast. Totally perfect stores for a family friendly budget. LOVE it even more!!!!

Mondo Style

This crazy little nut is my favorite designer on Project Runway. Let me introduce you to Mondo Guerra. He has such a funky style that was so different than any of the other designers. But the thing I liked most about Mondo's style was not the way he dressed :) but the way he could mix totally different patterned fabrics with LOUD pops of color. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this tweed skirt with the striped shirt. LOVE the high waist, LOVE the skinny belt, LOVE the length of her sleeves. So great!IThese were my faves from Mondo's collection in Fashion Week

What did I gain from this season of Project Runway? I REALLY want to learn how to sew clothes now. I know how to sew baby blankets, and burp rags, and pillows....BUT clothes. How cool would that be!!!!
