Fashion Must Haves For Spring 2019

I love Spring fashion because it means new trends and bright colors and patterns. I always go through the clothes I had stored away during the winter and sell or donate what I don’t want anymore so I can make room for new styles. There are a lot of really fun trends I’ve been seeing this Spring as well as fresh twists on the classics. These are my top picks for Spring 2019:  

Denim Jacket

Free People Denim Jacket

Living in Scottsdale, it can get pretty hot during the day in springtime, but it can still be chilly at night. A denim jacket is perfect for Spring weather and it’s a classic that will never go out of style. A lighter wash is perfect for Spring and goes great with any kind of outfit. I got this Free People denim jacket at Macy’s last year at the end of the season when everything was on sale. That’s the best time to buy a piece that you know will still be on trend the following year!

Rattan Bag

These bags are everywhere this year! They are so cute and you can fit all of your everyday essentials in them. This is the Amerii Ata Bag and the quality is totally worth the price. I think rattan bags will be sticking around through summer and we will probably see similar styles next year as well. They match so well with boho-style clothing.

Clear Sunglasses

I love these Warby Parker sunglasses because the clear Rose Water frame matches so well with everything I wear. There are a lot of crazy shapes going on with sunglasses right now, but I like to stick to more traditional shapes because they’re more flattering on my face and are more practical. Sunglasses are another item where I would rather spend the money on something that will last me for years rather than a pair that won’t even last through summer.

Gemstone Jewelry

Moon Magic Rose Quartz Ring

I have always been very anti-diamond and prefer other, less traditional gemstones for my jewelry. Moonstone has been one of my favorites, but rose quartz is a close second. I absolutely adore this Moon Magic rose quartz ring. It is so feminine and beautiful and adds a touch of luxury to any outfit. I only wear high quality rings and this one is no exception (Who wants to be left with a green stain on their finger? Not me!)

Patterned Pants

I love that patterned pants have made a comeback because they are so comfortable and make you look super stylish without even trying. These pants are from Topshop and the quality is surprisingly great. The only problem is it’s hard to find a top that matches well with the pants, but this crochet top from Francesca’s seems to be a good match.

How to Choose a New Year’s Dress Based on Your Style

Everyone has their own idea of what a New Year’s outfit should look like, but one thing is for certain – this is the time to wear something decadent that you wouldn’t wear on any old night out. You can dress as extravagantly as you please because everyone will be dressed to the nines. Of course, you don’t want to wear something you’re not comfortable in, because the whole point of the night is to have fun. Whatever you choose to wear should reflect your personal style, but also dare to push the boundaries and take it to the next level.

Star of the Show

Gold Metallic Dress with Thigh High Slit
Yandy Divine Metallic Dress

New Year’s parties are the one time you can really go all out and not stick out like a sore thumb, so why not go for it? Floor length is definitely the way to go if you are dressing to impress. You will turn heads in this dress with the thigh high slit and gorgeous gold, slinky fabric. The cut of the dress hugs your curves in all the right places.

FYI, this is the dress I will actually be wearing on New Year’s Eve because I am just that extra. I usually wear something with sequins, but I’m ready to change it up this year. Metallic has the same ‘wow’ factor without sharp plastic scratching up my arms.

Classic with a Twist

Black Gown with Zipper Front
Divine Vixen Dress

Black is always a great choice for formal events, and not everyone loves sparkle. You can jazz up the classic black gown with an edgy touch, like a zipper running down the front. Just because it is a plain black dress doesn’t mean it has to be boring. The material for this dress is super stretchy and is very figure flattering. You can even take the outfit up a notch with eye-catching shoes or accessories. This dress is also great for a more formal New Year’s Eve party.

Club-Going Cutie

Red Long Sleeve Dress with Cutout Neckline
Call Me Baby Red Dress

If you don’t feel like wearing a floor length dress, a cocktail dress is also a great choice. Red will definitely stand out from the crowd, and the cut out gives it a flirty touch without being too revealing. This dress is also made from a very stretchy and figure-hugging material, which is perfect for showing off your curves. Wearing a short dress also makes it a lot easier to dance, which I’m sure everyone will be doing a lot of on New Year’s Eve!

The Perfect Pajamas for Christmas Morning

There’s nothing like waking up and realizing that it’s Christmas morning. Even as an adult, I still feel that buzz of excitement as I wonder what could be under the tree for me this year. Of course, I have to put the tree together all by myself and do all of the Christmas shopping, so some of the mystery has disappeared. It’s still fun to get into the Christmas spirit and relive some of the traditions I had growing up.

Pajamas and Christmas go hand-in-hand, so wearing holiday-themed pj’s is an essential part of my Christmas morning. Yandy sent me some pieces from their holiday pajama collection that are so cute, and perfect for sitting around the tree on Christmas morning and opening presents.

Sexy Christmas Pajamas Crop Top Red and White Stripes
Candy Cane Cutie Pajama Pant Set

The red and white-striped pants are so comfy, and the cropped tank top gives the outfit a sexy touch. This pajama set makes me feel like Britney Spears in a Christmas-themed music video circa 2001 and I’m not complaining.

There’s always that period of time on Christmas morning when you’re waiting for everyone to wake up and get their act together so we can start opening presents. While I’m waiting around, I can’t help but stare at the presents and try to guess what they are by their shape. I don’t know about you, but I always shake my presents before I open them. Trying to figure out what’s inside is almost as exciting as actually opening the gift. Is it jewelry? Socks? Channing Tatum in the flesh? Detective Kelly is on the case.

Candy Cane Hearts Sleep Shirt

This sleep shirt is made from the same material as the striped pants, so it is also super soft. It also has adorable little heart patches on the elbows which I could not resist. It has a loose fit, so you can look cute and also actually sleep in it.

When I was growing up, we would bake cookies on Christmas Eve and leave out a few cookies along with a glass of milk for Santa. On Christmas morning, the plate would be cleared, but there were always leftover cookies for us to enjoy. Thinking back, I’m kind of jealous that my mom got to secretly eat cookies in the middle of the night under the guise of Santa.

Dear Santa I Can Explain Tshirt Pajamas

Have you been naughty this year? Then this is the sleep dress for you. So much sass. It has the comfiness of a t-shirt with a more form-fitting cut. I am all about comfort, especially when I’m not leaving my house.

I just baked these chocolate crackle cookies and they are soooo yummy. Perfect for dipping in a cold glass of milk. I will definitely be baking them again in time for Christmas. What are your favorite Christmas morning traditions?
