8 Spring Fashion Essentials

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.
 
 
 
 
 

I Need To Discuss Downton

February 25th, 2013

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since the finale here in the States and I know most of us are caught up on the drama, but as an Official Downton Abbey Addict I must share some thoughts on Season Three.

Matt and I watched the first two seasons together but this time we watched it separately, me at first all by myself kept company by a bag of popcorn and with each episode awaiting every character’s lines and plot turns.

With him, I watched Season 3 the second time yes, the second time  while he was the one carefully listening for the brilliant lines and plot turns, I was eyeing the fashion and interiors and the subtleties uttering out loud things like “oooh, that writing desk” and “oh the beading on that dress” much to his annoyance.

So I have to get these thoughts off my 21st century chest since I love this show so much and I’ve been saving these snapshots for weeks and weeks, but first:

* SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER * alert 

Do not read this post if you’re not caught up on the entire season!!!

May I begin? First of all the hats! The hats this season were so amazing, my compliments to the milliners, I especially loved the plumes on Shirley’s head.
