Reader Request…Carol!

I got this message from Carol this week on facebook…

Okay, I’m a tomboy. I’m more comfy in jeans, fitted tee and boots than anything. I own one skirt and I’ve never worn it. A friend told me I needed to stop being afraid to be a girl and wear a dress. I would love for you to guide me. Did I mention I’m also cheap? I would love to find some things and put him in his place!

This sounds like a challenge Carol!!!! I am sooo in! And I KNOW you will look fab!!!

My best advice is that when you go shopping, take someone with you that you trust to tell you the truth, and who’s fashion style you admire. That way, you know that when they tell you no, believe them, and when they say yes…BELIEVE THEM!! It will sooo not feel normal or comfortable trying on dresses or skirts, but like anything else, time fixes everything! You will get used to it eventually and then they will start to feel as normal as wearing your jeans! That said, I will be the first to step up and admit that I am not much of a dress or skirt girl either. I just feel more me in jeans, but I will totally break out the fabulousness when the occasion calls for it! 🙂

Start out slow, try looking for dresses or skirts for stuff like grocery shopping or running errands…that way you can ease into the whole skirt-thing in a casual way. Here are a couple of ideas for those kind of days…

At this point, don’t go nuts and buy a bunch of skirts or dresses, start with one or two…and they can translate into several looks depending on the stuff you wear with them! And don’t worry about spending lots of $$, there are fabulous outlet stores out there (love you Tommy Hilfiger!!!) and they carry some great quality items for less than they would normally be!

Once you find a skirt or dress that you like, bring it home, and work with that fabulous friend to go through your closet and create some outfits together. Use what you already have and this will help you feel confident when you step out…If everything is new, then you won’t feel like you AT ALL. And that’s not good! Here are some ideas using the dresses I found above…not knowing your body type, I can’t recommend any specific style, so when you are out shopping, try on any and everything!! This is the fun part, don’t feel discouraged if things don’t fit or look good, it is the clothes not your body. Every designer cuts and styles clothes differently, you just have to do the homework and find that designer that works for you! I have LONG arms, and the majority of shirts and jackets don’t fit, but I am LOVING Tommy Hilfiger, Jacob and Banana Republic these days…but that took a LOT of trial and error!!! That is why you have your friend, don’t make any decisions on your own, put it on, come out and show them. Let them say yes or no! We all judge our bodies unfairly, trust in them to steer you in the fabulous direction!

Here are some outfits that I have thrown together for you. Again, these are just suggestions, don’t focus on any of the price tags, I just used items for their look…and there are TONS of stores that copy designer items at good prices!!

Look of the week~Kate Hudson

Hello lovelies!!!

Hope you are having a fabulous end to your week…I know I am!

‘Cause I am having a bunch of city girls and their kids out for a “calving party”!!

…basically they get to come out, play in the mud and if we get lucky, see a cow calve or at least a new baby or two!

We’ve had 50 babies in the last 5 days, so our odds are pretty good…but I’m not promising them anything! Hopefully the weather is nice and the kids can all get out and get dirty!!


Here is a look of the week from my favorite girl (Kate!) to end your week!!

Look of the week ~ Dylan Lauren

This week’s look is Dylan Lauren, Ralph Lauren’s daughter. Talk about luckiest woman alive….I would LOVE to have her wardrobe, home decor and money if I am being perfectly honest….

This blazer isn’t the exact color….but 1- I love it and 2- I couldn’t find one in that gorgeous teal….darn it!


And this white satin shirt is apparently NO IRON!!! I now need this in my life.

And to get the sexy cuff look Dylan has going on, just undo the cuff’s buttons. So simple and so cute!


These lovely earrings are what I would do instead of the neck scarf.

I am not a scarf kind of girl and these earrings pretty much scream my name….can you hear it?!

To finish this look off, just add your favorite jeans, belt and buckle and a pair of these showstoppers…..


Have a great week!!
