Week O’Nautical – Nautical Travel Outfit

Week O’Nautical launched with such a bang it had to anchor for a few days.  So let’s sail on with a little post-Memorial Day Week O’Nautical with the perfect travel outfit for any long weekend travel plans!  A lot of the times your travel day still counts as a day, so you need to look cute and functional.  That’s where the mark. Crop It Like It’s Hot jumpsuit comes in.

A jumpsuit/romper may not be the best idea for “pit stops” but usually you keep those to a minimum anyways when trying to get somewhere.  This mark. Crop It Like It’s Hot jumpsuit (last seen here) is perfectly packable and travel-able.    Jumpsuit and rompers are great because it’s 1 and done, and when precious suitcase space is involved, that becomes important!

Nautical Cardi - A Travel Must Have

Nautical Cardi – A Travel Must Have

Take it nautical, and a little more functional, by adding a long white and navy striped cardigan that you can take on and off depending on the chill factor.  A lightweight sweater like this one from Old Navy is a MUST for traveling.  When traveling I like easy to wear jewelry like a watch, Avon Pretty Chic Bracelet Watch and some statement earrings, mark Show Stopping Earrings.

Last time I wore this jumpsuit I wore it with a good heel height but that’s not functional esp when running through an airport, so flats it is.  If I HAVE to wear flats why not some fun silver sneakers!?!  These are an old mark. item but I do have 1 pair of 6’s in my overstock if anyone wants them.

What makes this the perfect lake dress is the weight of the dress, it’s thick, perfect to ward off the chill coming off the lake.  The style of the dress works as a suit cover up, a lunch-ing look or worn for your lake activities.  Oh and did I mention it has pockets!  You know how I feel about a dress with pockets!

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.

Chambray Navy Skirt Combo

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.

What Eye Makeup Goes With Red Lipstick

What Eye Makeup To Wear With A Red Lip

What Eye Makeup To Wear With A Red Lip

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… red lipstick season! Not that red lips aren’t a thing all the time but for the holiday’s people who don’t normally wear red feel a little more inclined to bust it out and sport a red lip. Honestly, it’s all you need to create a festive look, but the question always arises, what eye do you pair with a red lip? Especially if you are not one who wears red lips often you don’t want to go to big on the eyes and just feel “over madeup” especially for daytime wear.  Do not fear because I have the PERFECT and easy! eye look for all your red lipped outings!

What To Wear To A Gift Exchange

Secret Santa’s, white elephants or just a girlfriend gift exchange are always super fun during the holiday season.  It’s a chance to do something fun, be festive and wear something fun and festive!  Linda and I have 2 ideas for you on what to wear to your gift exchange!

ALICIA’S LOOK:  

Avon Perfectly Polished Lace Dress

Avon Perfectly Polished Lace Dress

You can never go wrong with red during the holidays to immediately look festive.  Avon’s Perfectly Polished Lace Dress is the perfect piece for just that!  The dress is a misses’s cut (vs juniors like mark — mark. med = avon small) so it immediately is more forgiving for Christmas cookies.  It also features a more appropriate short sleeve and moveable/danceable jersey like fabric, and those lace panels are oh so slimming!

I paired this Avon lace dress with a red lip and a statement necklace.  You might remember this mark. necklace being my go-to holiday necklace last year but it works once again!  I love a great statement necklace for a festive look and I’d say 99% of mine are from mark.  My red lip is mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up.

LINDA’S LOOK:

Avon Keyhole Flounce Party Dress

Avon Keyhole Flounce Party Dress

A classic LBD never disappoints and Linda’s look with the Avon Keyhole Flounce Party Dress is perfect for a holiday gift exchange get together.  The cut and fabric makes it extremely comfortable to wear and the longer sleeves make it seasonally appropriate.  It’s always hard to find a killer dress with sleeves, but Avon comes through!  The keyhole detail and flounce fit give this LBD a little festive character for the holidays.

Avon Cushion Walk Clarissa Fashion Pump

Linda paired her LBD with a classic pump with a touch of fun gold with the Avon Cushion Walk Clarissa Fashion Pump.  But let’s be real, it’s December and it’s cold so why not add an extra layer like Linda did with the Avon Fancy Fringe Sweater which you could wear either open or closed to show off more of the fringe detailing.

GIFT EXCHANGE GIFT IDEA:  An ornament is always a good gift exchange gift, especially when it features an adorable woodland creature and lights up!  Avon Living Woodland Owl Light-Up Ornament ($14.99).

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation… are leggings pants?

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation

Did you think I was talking about the Presidential election!? The Trump vs Clinton election is pretty big too, but the real debate is over if leggings are pants!

source

Against  – You basically can see right through them, and show way too much!  Additionally, wearing them as pants is like a mullet, you have this casual pant trying to be business… nope.

source

For – They’re super comfy, like you’re lounging around but actually your not… or could be… because they’re super versatile for a lot of outfits and occasions, and they fit inside boots/booties no problem.

mark. Tight Laced Pants

mark. Tight Laced Pants

The Winner – What it comes down to is that not all leggings are created equal!  Fabric, style and how you wear them make all the difference.

The Item That Will Change Your Mind – mark. Tight Laced Pants

mark. Tight Laced Pants

These are my vote for the leggings/pants debate that will have you all for it.  They stand out because they are thick, like real pants thick, so you can wear them without any fear of sunlight or showing off too much.  They have a style to them, the seaming down the front not only elongates legs but creates a more structured look.  Best of all they have this super fun lace up detail in the back that you can wear tight and keep it close or a little looser and show some skin.  Plus the waistband is a nice banded waist so you can wear them with pretty much any top and avoid that clashing styles (mullet) issue.  They’re just as versatile as any other legging… except maybe you wouldn’t want to wear these to work out in, but chasing after a toddler workout is totally functional in these.  You could also wear them with a t-shirt and sneakers for a casual look or like I did with a split back lace top.  Either way these mark. Tight Laced Pants are the right choice!
