Look Good Feel Good

Style Can Make You Smile

True that!

the scoop

I hear or read almost daily bloggers and readers saying that a certain outfit makes them feel good. And its true for me too. When I feel bad or low it is reflected in how I dress. Things just are off.  If I can find the right outfit sometimes it can change how I feel. Bright colors, comfortable fit, and a little trendiness splattered in can lift my spirits.

Obsessed with this fun summer tops . . .

Another thing that makes me feel better is to put a smile on my face. A smile is contagious, it is your best accessory, it is a signal that everything will be all right. As long as I can remember, people have commented that I am always smiling and I can't say why that is, only that it is how I connect with people. A smile goes a long way when putting others at ease. It's kind of like my personal hand shake.

Fabulous jeans and slides linked for creating your own look!

Color Your world

with smiles

my look

I have had this top for a while but was waiting for the right occasion to wear it. This day was they day. The sun was shining and it was warm for our standards - in the upper 60s. I wanted my look to reflect the beauty and lightness of the day. 

I wore this off shoulder festive top with my comfy flare jeans and tan mules. I carried my Ark bag and wore bright red tassel earrings along with a white watch and beaded bracelet to complete this look. 

Details make a look  . . .

my hair

I got a hair cut a few weeks ago and my stylist took a lot of length off. She cut it in a graduated style and I love it. But it is still too long so I am going back this week to get a few more inches taken off. Same style just shorter. I love this style because I can just wash and go. These pictures show how my hair looks when I just wash it and let it air dry and do nothing else. It was part of my causal feel good look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Peace!

Sheer Tops & Style Wise Link Up

So A sheer top you say?

I usually don't wear them because the need to layer underneath adds bulk that doesn't work on my short frame.

But when I saw this top it was so beautiful that I thought I would give it the old college try! I found a nice fitted little white t-back tank and hauled it all home. All the while thinking I wouldn't be able to pull it off and would be returning.

I styled it with my long and lean flares and my platform shoes and SHAZAM! I think it worked! I can't tell you how pretty this top is, with the navy color and white dots and flowers. It has big bell sleeves with a split and a sharks tooth hem. It has it all and screams spring!

My top is no longer available but here are some beautiful options for creating your own look. Sheer tops are so popular for spring and I am obsessed with the longer ones so stay tuned for that!

It was just fun putting it on

I felt sassy, comfortable and bohemain all at the same time.

The trick I think was the form fitting tank and the longer jeans to help balance my body. Also choosing a sheer top that was the perfect fit in my shoulders and length just hitting the tops of my thighs helped. My white cross body bag was the perfect bag for this look. I had to have a glass of wine to celebrate my success in making this sheer tunic work!

The first pair of jeans and the first pair of shoes linked are what I am wearing  and I've added more options along with bags too, for creating your own look!

As always gang, thanks for stopping by!

Peace!
