Spring Basic

Some days are just basic days.  Basic days call for basic looks like this look.  Simple white top, ankle jeans and nude heels.  A simple yet classic look that can be worn to just about any daytime event you may have.  I wore this look the other day for brunch with some of my blogger babes and an afternoon full of errands.  

These ankle jeans are on repeat in my wardrobe rotation for Spring.  I love the fit and length of these jeans.  The length is great for a variety of shoe types, which I love.  Be sure to consider cropped skinny jeans on your next shopping trip!

VIDEO: Old Hollywood Glam | Makeup & Hair Tutorial

I'm a huge lover of Old Hollywood.  The leading ladies were so classy, so feminine, so exquisite.  When I think of the women from my favorite era, the 1940's, I think of Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, just to name a few.  Their beauty is timeless and that's exactly what I wanted to recreate in today's tutorial.  I took all of the classic looks from Old Hollywood and combined them to create this look.  From the perfect finger waves to the gorgeous red lips, this look would be gorgeous on any woman!

Styling Pastel Jeans for Spring with YMI // Part 2

I really love the color peach.  It's such a feminine color and is so very wearable because it's a soft shade.  I actually just had peach on my nails and got so many compliments on the shade!  

Because I went a little on the dressier side yesterday, I decided to go a little more casual with today's look.  I love pairing denim with denim, so this chambray (on SALE NOW!) was such a great addition to these beautifully bright peach jeans.  I love this look for daytime, but I actually wore this look out the other evening to dinner with friends.  I love to dress a look down with ballet flats, and these simple black flats worked perfectly! 

I decided to layer this look with a simple v-neck gray tee shirt to show how well gray and peach work together...  I love this simple look of just the gray tee tucked into jeans!  I'm wearing the Hyperstrecc Skinnies in this look and they fit like a glove.

If you'd like to see me put together an all peach makeup look for Spring, let me know in the comments!  :)
