Holiday Party Outfits!

Monday, November 25th, 2013
 
Hello and welcome to Thanksgiving week! Here in the States, we’ve all got our minds on the big feast coming up on Thursday, but you may also be thinking about what you might wear to the holiday parties just around the corner. My style is a look that’s classic meets flirty so I’m wearing this skirt paired with a black blouse, gold pumps and these earrings to host our holiday party this year.
 
I invited a favorite stylist and blogger to offer a few suggestions for holiday attire, all four of them different yet delightfully chic and feminine, please welcome Jennifer from Style Your Life and the four outfits she’s pulled together that are perfect for holiday parties!
 
"I love this very sweet classic look with some glam. It is like a modern day 1920′s look. This outfit is ideal for a fabulous date night or a glamorous cocktail party!"

8 Spring Fashion Essentials

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013
With spring fashion appearing in all the stores, I’m getting the itch to bring some fresh color not only into my home, but closet too. I thought it would be fun to bring in a fashion expert today so I invited wardrobe stylist Jennifer of Style Your Life to share her thoughts on the colors and essential pieces for the season, please welcome Jennifer!  
“Hi there Centsational Girl readers, Jennifer here from Style Your Life. As a full time wardrobe stylist, this time of year is all about spring cleaning and refreshing our wardrobes. I did some online shopping with you in mind, and these are the eight pieces I think are must haves for your spring wardrobe!
 
I don’t know about you but I am loving the colorful looks for spring. Bold color trends are still going strong into 2013. My favorite colors are turquoise, pink, and coral – they make my job easier since they are universally flattering, and everyone can wear these three colors.
 
Here are my 8 picks for bringing more color to your closet this season: 8 essentials for spring fashion

 

 
1. A Casual Tee - I love that these stylish yet comfy tees are dressier then a plain old tee shirt!
 

Turquoise pleated sleeve top / Pink lace tee / Yellow zipper back tee

 
2. A Spring Weight Cardigan - With the fluctuating temps of spring, layering is critical! This piece is a wardrobe staple.

Transitioning to Fall

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Hey everyone, are you getting excited for the long weekend?  We’ve got plans to make a quick trip to a special location to celebrate the last official weekend of summer, but I can *almost* feel fall in the air!  

I’ve invited Shannon of AKA Design back to share with you a list of five natural elements that make it easy and inexpensive to transition your home for fall.  Welcome back Shannon!

“Hi everybody!  Some say spring is a time for new beginnings and perhaps that’s true.  But to me, fall has always been the season to begin exciting new adventures.  Maybe it’s because I fondly remember school starting each fall, with new classes, friends and teachers (truthfully it was the pristine new binders and perfectly sharpened pencil crayons that got me!).  Or that the cooler weather is so crisp and refreshing after the summer heat. Or maybe it’s that Christmas (and all the joy that comes with it) is right around the corner once autumn arrives.  Who knows.  But, I do know that fall is one of my absolute favourite seasons for decorating!

Decorating in autumn is made fabulous by its sheer simplicity – all you need to do is bring the outdoors in using various elements from nature and you instantly cozy up a space!  Here are a five natural elements that make transitioning to fall easy. 

1.  Pumpkins & Gourds  In the fall, there are so many readily available pumpkins and gourds in various shapes, sizes and colours.  There are real and faux versions, as well as painted, glittered, and blinged out squash varieties. They can be stacked up, lined up or used to create any manner of vignette.
