Queen Bey

Being devoted to the Bey-Hive for over a decade, the moment has finally arrived. The most anticipated concert of the summer is here and it is mandatory to bring out your inner Sasha Fierce. Originally, when thinking of outfits I thought comfort. I pictured myself in a cool pair of sneakers with a sporty and minimalist tshirt dress. Then I realized if Beyonce is killing in in 5 inch heels, so can I. When planning your outfit ask yourself, WWBD? (What Would Beyonce Do)

Below are a few outfit suggestions that radiate fierceness:


Stay tuned to see the outfit choices of the girls and I at the concert!

Tweed


Last night MarissaNathalia, and I stopped by Tweed to check out the launch of their newest product. The Men's Soap Shop is a local company committed to producing all natural grooming products for men, and they are creatively sold in flasks! (Hint Hint for Father's Day)



TREND ALERT: Perforated Pieces

Perfection is all in the details, it is what makes clothing so special. Perforated fabrics are a must have this summer. A perforated fabric is either pierced, hole punched, or laser cut. Leather, mesh, or suede make sure you have a punctured piece in your wardrobe. This detail is unbelievably cool and visually intriguing. 

In typical girlfriend fashion we both found ourselves in leather punch-hole pieces, check it out.

The Ultimate Spring Essential

Women’s wear has been showing off the sporty side. Baseball tees, tennis skirts, hats and most of all, the bomber jacket. The bomber jacket is the perfect alternative to the classic trench coat. It is fun and easy to thrown on with dresses, t-shirts, and shorts once the weather is nicer. This jacket from free people will have an impact on any outfit. It is particularly cool because it's reversible too!

Winter Games




The Winter Games are finally here!
Companies and designers compete to find ways to make functional fashions for the athletes to wear. I enjoy the olympics not only for the fashions, you get to see athletes compete in sports that are not televised regularly. Each athlete has a human interest story and you suddenly feel connected and are rooting for them. I'll be tuning in to NBC these next two weeks starting with the incredible opening ceremony in Sochi Russia. 

GO USA!

Game Day Grub

Even though we won’t be able to cheer on the Patriots this weekend,  Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! Whether it’s for the commercials, the halftime show, or the actual game, friends and family everywhere will gather around the biggest television and tune into Super Bowl XLVIII.

Game day is all about staying home with classic football comfort food. Whether you’re noshing on dips, chips, pizza, wings and of course beer - presentation is everything! It’s okay to bring a little style to the Super Bowl Sunday coffee table and Crate and Barrel has all the accouterments one could possibly need to prepare for the big day.

...and later for dessert, chocolate peanut butter pretzel bars. Not only are they a salty sweet paradise, but they are incredibly easy to make!
