Casual With A Twist

Happy Friday, Everyone!

I hope y'all are as ready for 5:00 as I am!  Sunday it is supposed to be 70-something and sunny, and I am itching to put the boat in the water for the first time this year.  Especially since it got back down to 32 last night.  grrrrrr.   Silver-lining of the cold resurgence?  I got to test out this fabulous hoodie from Charles River Apparel!  I love pieces that have a fabulous element - like the fur trimmed hood on this casual fleece.  This hoodie is so so SO soft!  But, what I really love is the feminine cut of it.  The back is actually tailored like a heavier coat would be, giving a super flattering and structured shape to a typically loose piece.  It makes you feel like this hoodie can take you places.

If you are as in love with this hoodie as I am, scoot on over to Instagram for a chance to win one for yourself!  All of the rules are listed on the picture.  The Giveaway ends Sunday, so hurry hurry!   And if you are looking to shop more fabulous outerwear from Charles River Apparel, you can buy straight from Amazon ! 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  Don't forget to enter the Urban Philosophy Giveaway from yesterday's post!  Linkups below.

Spring Shoe Guide

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven

eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve | thirteen | fourteen

Happy Wednesday, loves!

Like many people, I get dressed shoe - up at least four days a week.  I love shoes.  Like a deep, deep love.  So when Spring rolls around every year, I get extremely excited to see all of the new babies just waiting to be adopted by me and my feet.  

This year I am really loving all of the sporty styles - like the classic New Balance trainers, and these adorable Dr. Marten leopard sneakers.  Block heels will be big again this year, and the mule is making a comeback.  Feminine, delicate sandals are always my go-to shoe for Spring, and this year the styles are extremely bright and flirty!  I am heavily lusting after all of the gladiator-inspired looks.  If you aren't brave enough to try the knee-high version, start with an ankle gladiator like this gorgeous pair from Tory Burch.  And since you can't have a Spring-inspired post with a floral print, these Dr. Marten boots made my list for a little tough love action.

I hope you find a few pairs you can't live without.  I may have found 10.

Casual Deconstruction

Happy Tuesday, amigos!

Confession time:  I have had these blue pants from Forever 21 for well over a year, and this is the second time I have worn them.  Every time I grab them from my closet, I find them a little difficult to style and so I throw them back in search of something else.  I think it's a combination of the fabric and thigh insecurities that always puts me on the struggle bus.  They are actually very high-waisted and made of a neoprene material, which translates to too-tight for a tight-fitting top {say that 5 times fast.}  My solution to this?  Pile on thick, deconstructed layers with tons of texture.  The flannel and denim make these slacks feel more casual and less nightclub. 

If you haven't noticed by now, I am a huge fan of weekly blogger linkups.  I love getting style inspiration from other pros in the business and finding new blogs with new blogger friends.  One of my favorites is the weekly Trend Spin hosted by the two bombshells Laura of Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Erin of The Fashion Canvas.  This week yours truly is being featured for my denim ensem in this post .  So, go check me out today and make sure to follow these two blogging babes.  If you're a blogger, make sure to linkup each week, and if you're just a fashion-fanatic, go find some new inspiration!

{ps - the Subtle Luxury Giveaway ends at midnight est today!}

Happy Monday, Bellas!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Things were pretty uneventful in the Frost house.  Our niece had a dance competition Saturday night and her duet placed first in their division with a high gold award.  She is only seven and is already such a talented dancer.  She truly lights up the stage every time.  This former ballerina could not be more proud.   

 Sunday one of my main girls and I went shopping for Bachelorette weekend wear.  She is getting married this May hooray!!  and we are celebrating for her last fling in a few weeks.  Since we are touring wineries all weekend, it was agreed red would be the perfect color for all of the gals.  And of course, I own nothing red.  Literally just one work dress and a red sweater.  Neither of which scream bachelorette weekend.  Can I just say how hard it is to shop on a dress code?  I found nothing red.  Nothing.  But I do have my eye on a few pieces from Forever 21.  This jumpsuit and this boho dress seem like the perfect pieces for a day of wine-tasting and shenanigans.

Today I wanted to show you another fabulous SPUN scarf from Subtle Luxury  I loved the adorable animal prints on this one and the fun mix of pinks and reds.  Don't forget to enter the Subtle Luxury Giveaway !  It ends tomorrow at midnight EST so hurry, hurry!

Warby Parker Does Spring

Happy Friday, friends!

I hope everyone is sups excited it's Friday!  Today I wanted to give you a sneak peek at what the optical geniuses behind Warby Parker have been up to.  There is not one, but two new collections that are going to blow your mind.  The Spring Collection boasts six new colors and eight new shapes including modern classics, adventurous hues, and attention-grabbing silhouettes.  They are also introducing the Palm Canyon Collection which much like a wild berry mojito, is a refreshing twist on classic frames.

Optical frames and sunglasses are such a fun accessory and can instantly change the personality of a look.  I have paired 4 of my favorite frames from the new collections with trends you will see this Spring. {ps - everything is linked through the shop the post below!}

The Finch are ultra feminine.  Pair them with all of your Spring florals for a clean, fresh look.

The color name of this pair tells you everything you need to know - Revolver Black.  The Wheeler sunglasses are instantly chic and will look killer paired with graphic prints for Spring.

Wide-leg pants will be everywhere this Spring.  The silhouette pairs perfectly with the classic, clean Kimball frames in Marzipan Tortoise.

The quirky Quimby will be your stand-out pair this Spring.  Their uniqueness will flatter sheer panels and crop tops.

I hope this has given you some Spring eyewear inspiration!  And remember, for every pair of Warby Parker frames purchased they give a pair to someone in need.  Win-Win!

Thanks for reading!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Linkups below.

Just Kickin' It

Happy Thursday, dolls!

I learned two things while taking these pics:

1.  Dogs are not props and they will remind you of such by running a muck
2.  Charles River Apparel makes extremely fashionable & functional outerwear.

{seriously though, could these two pupperonis be bigger goobers?!}

Let's be real for a minute.  Some days you need to just throw on your most convenient ensem and get things done ie- errands, dog walking, garage cleaning... you get the picture.  But, just because you want/need to be comfy and functional doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your style.  My friends at Charles River Apparel make sure you look chic no matter the occasion with their extensive collection of outerwear.

 This heathered fleece, made of the softest material, is lightweight enough for me to chase after the pups without getting too hot.  I love the tailored, feminine cut of the jacket, and the thumbholes make it super easy to layer a heavier jacket over top {don't you hate it when your sleeve bunches up in your coat sleeve?  I just HATE that.}  Just throw on easy, but instantly chic, pieces such as distressed denim and Ray-Bans, and you are ready to tackle that to-do list!

Make sure to follow Charles River Apparel on Instagram to keep up with all of the latest styles and for fun giveaways!  See something you can't live without?!  Of course you do!  You can shop Charles River Apparel directly on Amazon !  Happy shopping!
