Make sure to head to Kimberly”s blog for more daily doses of fashion for less!

Leather trim trousers

Hi everyone! This is my final post in the fall series with LuLu*s and today we’re tackling the sporty trend.  Slouchy & track-style pants are totally in for the season, which is a major bonus for those of us who crave comfortable pieces that still look stylish!

Track pants

 I personally like to add a heel when wearing looser-fitting pants because it elongates the leg line & adds a feminine touch.  These pants have such a modern feel & I love the faux leather detailing on the side.  

Neutrals + plaid

I chose to pair them with more tailored pieces to balance out the sporty vibe, but you could just as easily wear them with a graphic tee & leather jacket for a cool weekend look.  

Trench + relaxed trousers

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s posts & have gotten some good ideas for how to style these new trends with pieces you already own.  Thanks so much to LuLu*s for partnering with me!

What I’m wearing:

Trench (similar),  blouse (similar here or here), sweater (similar here or here), c/o LuLu*s Pants, heels ( similar here), Vintage clutch, watch (similar), bracelet (similar)

 

FashionLooks We Love: Tropical Print

Whether you’ve got Spring Break in your sights or your rear-view, live up those piña colada pipe dreams all the same in these hotter-than-the-tropics prints! From palm fronds to hibiscus, black and white to rainbow bright, tropical prints are riding a heat wave straight through our hearts and into our closets as we gear up for sunny days and rising temps. Just be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and some sweet shades… it’s a jungle out there.

ArtHigh Contrast in Fashion Magazine’s May Issue

If you’re a devoted LuLu*s follower, you’ve probably noticed that we’re more than just a little bit obsessed with black and white at the moment… and it appears we are not alone. We’ve found a kindred spirit in Canada’s Fashion Magazine, as this eye-catching editorial spread can attest. Striking stripes of black and white mingle with bold pops of red for an absolutely mod-velous ode to our chromatic crush, shot by photographer Chris Nicholls. Add model Samantha Rayner’s bold, bowl-meets-bob cut by Greg Wencel, and we simply cannot look away. So take in the sights of this visually stunning spread, and once you’re through, why not indulge yourself in a little something striped?

FashionTrend Alert: J’Adore D’Orsay

As sexy as a bikini for your feet, these two-piece pumps and flats are equal parts classic and on-trend. This style has been around since the turn of the 19th century, but that doesn’t mean this arch-bearing archetype can’t have a major moment in the modern world. So air out those arches and make room for some delightful d’Orsay shoes!

FashionBlogger Roundup: Bold Contrasts & Proper Silhouettes

One of our favorite trends from the Spring 2013 runways was bold black and white contrast and combos. Whether it was stripes, patterns or colorblocking; crisp black and white exudes confidence and looks super polished and put together. Our bloggers took the trend and ran with it, each girl styling her look in an individual way!

Another one of our favorite trends was structured and proper ladylike dresses and separates! We absolutely love the prim and preppy trend we have seen for dresses and again, our girls are rocking it!
