Beach Bum

Who says ya can’t wear sparkles to the beach!

When heading to the beach, we still want to look cute and stylish … all this while maintaining a sense of comfort. This red and white sparkly anchor tank, sweater and boyfriend jeans are the perfect combo for hanging out.  Top the look off with some fun spikey sandals and you’re ready to rock the beach!

Salwar Kameez2 and a half years ago I had the pleasure of attending a good friends Indian wedding celebration. That meant I got to go shopping for an amazing, sparkly Indian dress or Salwar Kameez. I found this … and did back flips. For someone who loves sparkle AND color … I was in heaven 🙂

This Red Skirt

I’m pretty sure when I bought this skirt it sat quietly in the closet. I loved it, but I wasn’t sure what to pair red with! Now I see that it’s pretty versatile. Browns, blues, sparkle or stripes … Which is your favorite?

It’s All About Hats

Whether you’re wearing them to keep your noggin warm or just for plain old fun, hats can take fashion to another level.

Winter Hat

Baby It’s Cold Outside…
Not only do I LOVE this hat that my aunt Carrie made, but I love my mom in it!
Such a fun design and color!

Sparkly Baret

Berets always have a way of giving off that smart, artsy vibe.
This sparkly one is a fun, new twist on an old classic.


Sexy and sophisticated. You can never go wrong with the fedora.
Try one with some detail or add your own touch like your favorite pin or a pretty ribbon!

Window Shopping

While strolling down Melrose Ave. this past weekend I wandered past a store front with the cutest ensemble. Had to snap a photo and share. I could probably do without the cross necklace, but the shirt and shorts are adorable! What do you think?

Store Front - Shorts that sparkle


You Style The Day – Trish’s Sparkle & Shine

What’s even better than a cold drink on a hot day? How about a cute outfit (with matching straw) to lounge about in!

If there’s one thing my mom loves it’s sparkle, and today she is sharing a look that I just LOVE! Color and sparkles all rolled into one … along with a pina colada accessory, YUM! What a fun way to dress up a pair of shorts. Thanks for sharing!

You Style The Day – Nicole’s Casual Cool

What’s better than being comfortable in what you’re wearing? How about comfortable and stylish! Our next “Inspire Me” photo comes from Nicole in Minnesota. I love the combination of her necklace with the simple black tank. Casual and comfortable meets modern and fun! Thanks for sharing Nicole!

Nicole's Necklace by Cayetano

Nicole Says: “Nothing is better on a beautiful day than wearing a fabric that seems to brush up against your skin like the wind. Lisa Todd (based out of Miami) is the designer of these fun flowing pants. How can you resist a sexy slit up the front!? Her most current line focuses on the average American Women looking at sizes 10-12. Pair these fun pants with a pair of DVF wedge sandals, a basic tank, fun necklace by Cayetano and hat by Lillie and Cohoe. Based out of Canada, Lillie and Cohoe’s line is irresistible and brings back a classic must have piece for every woman! If you love Coco Chanel, then you better love this designer.

My style??? Ever changing and evolving! Never wear the same thing twice! A punk girl with sophistication!”

Remember, anyone can participate in “You Style The Day” so email a photo, brief description and tell me which look from my blog you were inspired by. I’ll post your photo so others, along with myself, can be inspired by you!
