No doubt, shoes can make or break an outfit. For many of us, flats are not at the top of the list when it comes to choosing shoes to complete an outfit. But, in 2019, flats are making a comeback. And, they are fancier and more colorful than ever. If you’re a flat lover, you may rejoice now. If you’re not, you might be swayed by the fancy flats trend.
I’ve had the (orange and purple pairs below) flats on my wish-list for a minute. They’re now 60% off. I’m thinking I should get them now to get in the fancy flats trends. My only struggle will be deciding on a color.

When the temperatures dip, layering becomes more important than ever. Scarves, then, become essential style accessories. Honestly, I can’t think of a winter outfit that can’t be improved by wrapping a fabulous scarf around your neck. They keep our necks (and even our faces) warm, and they can easily refresh our outfits. To demonstrate, I’m taking a basic sweater and giving it new life with a bright scarf.

Okay, this sweater isn’t totally basic. It’s a with a sassy back slit. From the front, though, it looks a tad basic. To give it new life, though, I added a chunky yellow scarf. This scarf is the perfect complementary hue to create a fun color blocked vibe.
For the rest of winter, I’m challenging myself to have fun with scarves. I’m going to let them transform my winter style. Whether I’m using a scarf to mix prints or block colors, I’ll be allowing my scarves do more than keep me warm. You too?

The thing that fascinates me most about 2019 fashion trends is the return to maximalism. Many of the IT styles seem to promote being as extra as possible. My everyday look could use the push, so I’m looking forward to indulging. Today, then, I’m spotlighting the feather trend. I’m a longtime fan of feather embellishments. I can’t wait to bring my feather skirt back out, and my feather pumps are the perfect color to accent my spring and summer outfits this year.
In today’s post, I’m sharing one of the easiest ways to incorporate feathers into your look–earrings! The pair I’m wearing is from in . They come in a few fabulous colors. I was drawn to the mint because I knew it would help me create beatuful colorblocked moments, like this one with the yellow top and fuchsia lippie. I’ve also linked some of my favorite feather earrings (and a few pumps too) at the end of this post.

Blazers have been getting a lot of love in recent fashion seasons. For blazer lovers, the news comes as no surprise because blazers will always be style staples. They’re sharp looking. They’re versatile. And, this spring? They’re bold and bright. In Go For Bold And Bright Blazers This Year, I shared an easy way to wear a blazer, as a simple pop of color with basics. Today, I’m sharing a bolder way to rock the bright blazer trend.

Move over, black blazer. Bright blazers that pack a punch are having a moment. And, the best way to wear them? With other brights, of course.
If you’re experimenting with color mixing for the first time, the color wheel can be a great guide. Hues that are next to each other on the color wheel are called analogous colors, while shades that are opposite each other are called contrasting colors. Color harmony can be reached by pairing analogous colors as well as contrasting colors together. I’m doing a little bit both in this look.
By the way, there is no need to wait for spring to start reaching for your brights. Bold colors can be the perfect mood boosters during a dreary winter. I should know. I wore this exact outfit out and about yesterday, and I was met with smiles everywhere.
My blazer is an I found on sale in Nordstrom at the St. Louis Galleria. It might still be in some stores, but it has sold out online. Banana Republic has a few gorgeous bright blazers, though, including a (on sale).
