I love maxi dresses and skirts for the spring and summer. They are low maintenance and very comfortable. The best part about them is that you can get them in a variety of colors, prints, and fabrics. Now I think I’m getting a little too old for crop tops. I know some people may say there isn’t an age limit on croptops, but I would have to respectfully disagree. I actually own a few crop tops but I either wear them with a pair of high-waisted jeans or shorts, or a high-waisted skirt, unless I’m at the beach. Sometimes I may put on a cute cami and people are like what’s the point. As you get older your fashion focus starts to change. I try not to buy crop tops that are too cropped if you know what I mean. If it looks like it could be a bra or that my bra shows underneath, I don’t buy it. I still love the look, but I try to make it fit my style.

What to Wear: Maxi and Crop Tops

Take a look at a few maxi skirts and crop tops that I wouldn’t mind adding to my wardrobe for the warmer weather.

I have a confession to make, I have not worn heels in quite a few months. This winter has really put a damper on my style. I’m not like other bloggers who know they are freezing dressing like it is spring or early fall in 20 degree weather. I’m not about that life. I’m more about wearing stylish clothes and dressing for the weather. I know that’s rare these days, but a few of us normal people still exist :). Anywho, I’ve been wearing lots of riding boots, suede shooties (it’s like a bootie and a shoe), UGGs (they keep me warm don’t judge), and other ankle boots. Nothing with a real heel and very practical for keeping warm. I will be so glad when those days are over. I came across these beauties below and instantly fell in love!

These are perfect for spring and incorporating color into your wardrobe. The would go great with tea length dresses, midi-bodycon dresses, skater skirts, pencil skirts, skinny jeans, cargo pants and more! A pump is a very versatile shoe, but what sets this shoe apart from other pumps is the cut-out detail, which will be huge this spring. So if you want to try something bold click here to order this beauty!

Spring is finally here and it will be 63 degrees in New York today *Woop woop* I haven’t been wearing that much makeup until recently, but I just haven’t been in the mood, but now that Spring is here I think it is time to upgrade my makeup for the spring with some affordable brands.

Here is a recap of some of our favorite looks from the Oscars. This is the biggest red carpet event during award season and so we expect nothing but the best!

Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, and Jada Pinkett Smith were among our favorites during the red carpet. I love the 1920s style waves that Viola is rocking and the color of her dress. Kerry Washington is not letting the bun in the oven stop her fashion game. She is glowing in this gown! Jada Pinkett Smith surprised me with this look. It is sleek and sexy. The color has me anticipating spring more and more.

oscars10I don’t think Charlize Theron ever misses a fashion beat. She brings it every time!

Pictures152I was on the fence about Julia Roberts’ look, but I actually like the texture and lace. I love Karen O’s deep neckline with the jewel encrusted pendant. The dress flatters her figure well and you can never go wrong with black.

Pictures151I think Sandra Bullock is so underrated. She is always classy. Kate Hudson looks amazing as well and both of these ladies are setting trends for the spring with side swept curls. I thought I liked Angelina Jolie’s dress, but now that I’m looking at it again, I’m not that crazy about it…oh well.

Last but not least, I have to revisit Lupita Nyong’o’s look 🙂

Who rocked your favorite look for the Oscars?

Lupita Nyong’o definitely deserves her own post. Not only because she looked stunning in her “Cinderella-esque” Prada gown in “Nairobi Blue.” She said,

“It’s a blue that reminds me of Nairobi, and so I wanted to have a little bit of home.

This show stopping red carpet look was only the beginning. Lupita also won an Oscar for best supporting actress in “12 Years a Slave.” This has been a true fairytale for her and she deserves it all. It is great to see a woman of color so highly regarded for her great works. Often times African and  African-American are perceived in a negative light because of stereotypes perpetuated in society, she defies them all. She is well-spoken, well-dressed, talented, refined and simply amazing.
