Spring Skirts With Loft Outlet

Spring Skirts With Loft Outlet

Spring Skirts With Loft Outlet

 

April showers brings May flowers… and spring skirts!  Now that we’ve got warming temps the spring skirts are in full effect.  This year I picked up a few new from my local Loft Outlet.  If you are in the greater Sacramento area, head over to the the Folsom Premium Outlets and check out my friends at the Loft outlet!  Not only will they hook you up with some great customer service, they’ll also fit you up right!

Navy Crochet Skirt From Loft Outlet

Navy Crochet Skirt From Loft Outlet

Out of my Loft Outlet finds, this navy crochet skirt has to be one of my fav’s.  This is actually something that can work year round!  For spring I paired it with a chambray top (also Loft Outlet) but will look equally as cute with a sleeveless blouse for summer or a sweater come fall.

Maybe I’m already in Week O’Nautical mood, but there’s something so clean about navy and white, which is why I LOVE this skirt paired with white accessories.  I took some super trendy white accents and paired them with an otherwise more conservative look.  Thought you couldn’t wear the lucite heels trend?  Well, you’re wrong!  Try these mark. So Clear To Me Sandals with your spring skirts as a way to wear the trend.   The mark. Total Perfection Bag is also the perfect spring/summer bag to add to your collection this year.

Mid Month Makeover – $100 To Update Your September

“Do you remember the 21st night of September?  Love was changing the minds of pretenders.  While chasing the clouds away”… who doesn’t sing a little Earth Wind and Fire come September?  September is kinda like a re-fresh with everything back to school and fall-tastic, so here’s my picks on what to refresh your September with and only spending $100 because let’s face it all these fun fall activities add up!

Mid Month Makeover - $100 To Update Your September

Mid Month Makeover – $100 To Update Your September

mark. Sweat Equity Dress $40 – So this is a deep dark navy sweatshirt dress with a textured houndstooth pattern… why is it my top pick?  Not just because it’s houndstooth but it’s a super versatile item for September.  Wear it as a dress as the weather still a little warm with a suede sandal, a flat or a pair of chucks for weekend.  Then as it cools down switch to a bootie or boot and as it gets even colder layer it with leggings or tights or even a collard shirt for a tailored look.  All while being extremely soft and comfy in a sweatshirt dress!  Navy is a little more chic and unexpected from your normal black, but because it’s so dark it will look really nice paired against black.

mark. Buckled In Tote $44 – Everyone needs a good fall bag and basic black is always a good decision.  I like this one because it’s big enough to fit everything you need to go from work to weeked and can even double as a travel bag while still not being TOO big.  It rests easy on the shoulder, has a crucial functional zip pocket on the outside  and fun details with the buckles.  Plus the material is really easy to clean.

mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Bars $16 – Just like switching up your wardrobe you need to switch up your makeup for the fall too.  You’re coming off of your summer glow so the warm bronzes, golds and peaches in this set are prefect.  Plus it’s a multitasker, one product for eyes, bronzer and highlighter and will pair perfectly with a fall lip no matter if you go berry, vampy or nude.  See how to use this product to strobe here and a golden look here.

So we have the mark. Sweat Equity dress at $40, the Buckled In Tote for $44 and the Touch and Glow Shimmer Bars at $16, hitting $100 on the dot with a FREE gift of the All Bundled Up!  However, if you have some extra wiggle room my next pick is some fall booties!  I really like the matching bootie to the Buckled In Tote the mark. Right In Step Booties, you’ll see this shape on everyone this fall!  You can shop all the items at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger as well as all the new fall arrivals to update your September!

How To Wear A Sequin Dress Casually

How To Wear A Sequined Dress Casually

How To Wear A Sequined Dress Casually

TGIF!  We made it through the week, and that is something to be celebratory for.  If you’re headed out this weekend to be celebratory why not wear the most celebratory kind of dress, a sequined one!  It’s not New Years, I can’t wear sequin… wrong!  Dress it down, wear it casually and feel like a million bucks because thats what wearing sequins does.

mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress Over Sequins Of Events Dress

Layering the mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress over the mark. Sequins of Events dress creates a casual take on sequins.  The casual piece, the chambray dress, automatically tones down the sequins from party to pretty.  You could even button up the dress instead of wearing it open like I did for just a pop of sequins for an even more casual take.

mark. Sequins Of Events Dress

mark. Sequins Of Events Dress

Some key elements keep this a causal look.  First is the all black sequins, the power of a little black sequined dress!  Secondly is the fit, it isn’t a super tight party dress, it’s a more forgiving loose fit with a higher neckline.  This mark. Sequins Of Events dress is part of our summer sale going on now so you can pick this up for ONLY $24.99!  That’s a pretty good deal on a sequined dress.

Blue Suede Shoes - mark. By Any Stretch Pump

Blue Suede Shoes – mark. By Any Stretch Pump

Summer suede is not only a huge trend this year but it also adds a low key vibe, even on these statement shoes!  Suede shoes will soften the look, you could wear an open toe bootie or wedge or even a flat sandal.   I love a good statement shoe and these mark. By Any Stretch Pump have been in heavy rotation.  Plus, I just love the blue black combo paired with the blue of the chambray and black dress!

A Casual Sequined Dress Look!

A Casual Sequined Dress Look!

Finally a few simple accessories finish off the look, some rose gold hoops (Charming Charlie), a single rose gold and crystal bracelet (Henri Bendel) and a gold clutch (mark. makeup bag pulling double duty as a clutch!).  With this easy summer makeup look we’ve got a full casual look perfect for hot summer nights!

mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress

mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress

This mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress has been my best summer investment!  Not only is it cute by itself it is so versatile worn open like a duster.  I’ve layered it over so many things and its only been a few weeks!  Plus its the perfect light weight for summer but can easily translate into fall!  You can shop this dress, the sequined dress, my pumps and makeup look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  BONUS!  Not only is the summer sale going on right now, but you can also take advantage of these offers!  Personal pick is the FREE pineapple tote and Pineapple Chill Footworks Set (see review here) with a $75 order (starts tomorrow)!  Pick up the mark.
