Asymmetrical hemlines for spring

how to wear asymmetrical hemlines asymmetrical hemline outfit idea

Wearing: bold green and gold earrings / YSL lipstick / white ruffle top (under $20!!) / gold watch / Christian Louboutin spring nail polish / asymmetrical striped skirt / Mansur Gavriel handbag (in stock here) / Kendra Scott spring ring / Gucci slides

One of the biggest trends on the runways for spring was the asymmetrical hemline. Since this type of hemline isn’t common on the streets, I was wondering how to wear asymmetrical hemlines for spring 2017. I decided it needed to be done by taking the overall look down a notch; hence runway to the street.

In order to take this wrap skirt, with an asymmetrical waist and hemline, down to the street, I paired it with a simple ruffle tee. The addition of flat slides also helped to make the overall look more understated. It was really easy and comfortable to wear! I wore this outfit for the first time when I took my daughter to her chess class, hung out at a coffee shop with the other Mom’s from the class, took my daughter out for a sushi lunch, picked up my glasses, took a walk; basically ran errands!

It was really easy to walk around in these slides, and the outfit was perfect for the nice spring weather we are having here in the San Francisco Bay Area. We were in San Jose when we took these pictures at Santana Row. My cute little ten-year-old daughter took these photos. She did quite well! She might know her way around a DSLR camera better then me!

So what do you think of the asymmetrical hemline trend for the spring season? Have you been wondering how to wear asymmetrical hemlines this spring season, or does the trend appear too daunting?

The easiest way to bring asymmetrical hemlines from the runway to reality is by pairing them with something simple such as plain tee, a ruffle tee, or crew-neck top; even a button down, crisp white shirt will do the trick. When you mix basic with abstract you can amp up a simple outfit, or bring a runway art piece to the street.

Poncho for winter

There is something about a poncho for winter which is both chic and cozy at the same time. I love how a poncho instantly elevates a casual look into an effortless, yet very put together, ensemble.

I am thrilled I bought this poncho for winter since it is comfortable, and very warm! Ponchos normally seem semi-warm when I view them on the hanger at the store, or in a photo online, but this poncho defies all logic. It has hidden sleeves! Love that!

The hidden sleeves allow this poncho to act like a sweater, yet look like a poncho. Most ponchos are wide open, allowing the cold air to circulate underneath, which results in a cover-up which is for looks only; no warmth. Not this poncho! This poncho is warm like a sweater, because it has hidden sleeves!

The colors on this poncho for winter are perfect too. I love the burgundy, purple, and green yarn mixed together. It creates a cool looking color which works well with blue accessories, burgundy accessories, or classic black, which I chose to pair it with in the above photos.

I would also like to give a shout-out to these booties by Rag & Bone. If you have been following along, you may have noticed I wear these booties a lot! I purchased them last year, and have found myself wearing them during the fall, and winter seasons quite often. They have a lot f cushioning inside, as well as ample arch support. This makes these booties extremely comfortable. I wear them from 7am until 9pm without any foot pain. I have even chased ( I mean RUN) after my kids while wearing them! How often can you say that about a heeled bootie??? If you are looking for a comfortable bootie, I highly recommend this pair. They can be found online here.

Thanks for stopping by, and stay warm this season!



Shades of blue for winter

When I was in New York for fashion week back in September, I was thrilled to see so many shades of blue on the runways! Since blue is my favorite color, this is definitely a color trend I don’t mind jumping on as quickly as possible!

This short coat caught my eye right away at Banana Republic. Not only is it a great casual style, perfect for wearing with jeans, it is a fabulous shade of blue! I love the bright, pale turquoise color which brightens up a dreary winter day. In addition to being bright, this coat is extremely cozy! I love staying warm in it. If you need a perfect, cozy, casual coat for right now, this is the coat to check out! You will love it.

The blanket scarf pictured above is also my favorite blanket scarf this season. It is soft, smooth, and very cozy. It adds additional warmth to any outfit I wear; and I love the color mix! The soft grey combined with green, and two shades of blue, makes this blanket scarf so pretty! It also comes in purple, which I am tempted to pick up since both colors are on sale! I may pick up a couple to give as gifts for Christmas too. It can easily roll up and fit inside a stocking! Can we say best. stocking. stuffer, ever! Yes! Maybe Santa will fill my stocking with the purple one. . .hmmmm

I find myself reaching for this coat and scarf combination often. I love how the two pieces look together. Do you have a particular scarf you reach for when you wear a certain jacket or coat? Please share in the comments below!

The earrings I am wearing in these photos is a favorite pair of mine. You may have noticed in previous outfit posts, I wear them often! They come in a dozen colors, so if you are looking for a last minute stocking stuffer, these are a great option! Or, a little somthin’ somthin’ for yourself 😉

I hope you are staying warm this season. If you need a casual coat, I highly recommend this one! It is really warm, comfortable, and cozy! Have a great holiday season and thanks for stopping by!
