gladiator

I couldn't wait to wear my new Primadonna gladiator sandals! I paired them with a simple outfit to make them the main focus. 

Creating the Look:
Of course this look started with the gladiators. To keep the outfit simple, I wore a t-shirt dress. The color of the dress gave the look some detail. To give the look more subtle details, I wore a sleeveless blazer. I completed the look with gold accessories and a chain strap bag.

the glamorous casual


With the hot summer weather, a glam outfit is out of the picture. I created this look to show how to be cool and glamorous at the same time. The key is to take classic summer casual pieces and add some glam touches.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the full skirt. I wanted to keep the look simple and make the skirt the main focus, so I paired it with a gray tank. This dressed down look, which gave it a move causal feel. Nothing scream casual like a denim jacket, so I added it to the look. To continue the simple feel, I added single strap heels. Just to add a little detail, I chose heels with studs. I added more detail with layered necklaces. They are a perfect pair with a basic tank or tee. The look need a pop of color so I completed the look with a summery orange cross body.

mixing

I love mixing trends in unconventional ways. For this look I focused on taking a casual trend and turning it into something dressy and sexy.

Creating the Look:
I love my cutout skirt, so ever look I create with it starts with it. The skirt is so feminine, so I decided to pair it with a masculine, plaid button up. To add a feminine touch to the button up, I tied it at the button. Once I added the plaid button up, I thought of the trend of tying plaid button ups over your waist. I decided to take it a step further by using a denim jacket, since plaid and denim go well together. To add another sexy touch, I wore red, strappy heels. The heels also bought out the red in the button up. I finished the look with some glam by adding jeweled earrings.

floral canvas

My outfits are usually inspire by one piece. For this look, the floral button up was the inspiration. 

Creating the Look:
I love the colors in the floral button up so I decided to pair it with colors that would compliment it. I wore white shorts because I didn't want to take the focus from the top. I added the colors with the accessories. My favorite color in the top is the neon green, so I made it pop by adding a neon green belt. I love to pair navy with orange so I wore a orange cross body bag. Also, blue and orange are complimentary colors so the always pair well together. I wanted my shoes to pop but I didn't want to add another color. I decided to add a neutral, so I wore gold oxfords. I wore jeweled earrings to add some glam to the look.
