Hello there!

Did you catch the drift? The off the shoulder trend is what every girl wants to be caught wearing this season. I’m not mad about it and neither should you! This trend is feminine, chic, fun and so flirty, a personal favorite of mine. I love anything that has a bare back and bare shoulders, (remember this post?) so it’s to no surprise that I am all over it. Have you jumped on the bandwagon? Read More…

Last week Michael and I decided to go on an early dinner date (#yass ! We took #FancyP with us) and I decided to tuck away my dreary winter clothes and dig in my closet for something with a more spring vibe. I am desperately dreaming of warmer days and I’m not gonna lie, it was a little too cool for this look, but thankfully we ate inside. With spring only a few days away, (18 days, 4 hours and 21 minutes to be exact from when I wrote this post) I wanted to share 7 easy wardrobe tips on how to transition from winter to spring smoothly and fashionably!

**********

Tip #1

Bring on the bold prints (floral,  graphic blouses).

Tip #2

Ditch the darks for something lighter.

Tip #3

Not ready to completely ditch the dark tones? Fine! Just add in the pantone colors of the year –Rose Quartz (pale pink) and Serenity (baby blue).

Tip #4

Lighter layers! Get rid of the heavy, bulky, thick jackets for something lighter like denim jackets, cardigans…

Tip #5

Amp up your accessories. Reach for this season’s trends like fringe, tassels, flower inspired earrings…

Tip #6

Easiest and most significant tip yet! Freshen up your make up and nails by switching up the darker hues for neon bright hues, nudes, pinks, anything that screams gentle, fun and feminine.

Tip #7

Switch up your bulky bags and purses for clutches and bright carryalls.

**********

 These tips are inexpensive ways to make a statement and be season ready without having to overhaul your entire closet. Hope you find them easy and helpful. Now bring on the warmer days and fun getaways!

Thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes with me! Till next time. Grandma-13 Grandma-14

Hello there!

Cheers to my second collaboration look with Ellen Tracy. This, oh so casual look accessorized with this beautiful mixed metals layered necklace. We all know that everything layered is better. We’ve seen that the layered necklace trend has been pretty consistent these last few season and I don’t think its going anywhere for a while. They are fun, delicate and adds a nice feminine, dainty vibe to your ensemble and Ellen Tracy has captured that. This three tiered layered necklace is irresistible and insanely stylish and works great to amp up any casual look like this one. The idea that its mixed metals adds such an edgy touch and makes your life so much easier special when deciding on gold, silver or rose gold for accessories. Decision no more! This is just the one you need.
