Zinke Swimsuit Cover-up for Resort 2015

Over the past month it has been  really cold! That is why this is the perfect time of year to plan a resort or cruise getaway. Since it is not quite spring, and summer was several months ago, packing for a resort getaway could be a problem! Thankfully the resort 2015 season is in full swing and Zinke has a fabulous collection of swimwear and cover-ups to make that warm weather getaway a fun and fabulous trip out of the cold and into the warm!

I absolutely adore this swimsuit cover-up by Zinke. I picked it out back in September when I was at fashion week in New York and got a sneak peek at Zinke’s resort 2015 collection. The cut-out is cute and offers a peek at a one-piece swimsuit. It is also on trend; making this cover-up ideal for walking from the beach or pool into a shop or restaurant without feeling half-dressed. Love that!

These pictures were taken when the wind was out of control! My hat kept blowing off and the skirt on my Zinke cover-up was blowing all over the place. I was afraid the cover-up would blow-up from the wind but it was great at only ballooning and not revealing what was underneath. In short, it kept me modest and covered-up! I am looking forward to wearing my Zinke cover-up at summer pool parties and future pool/beach vacations.

Goodbye 2014 and to all the horrible trends we will leave behind!

It is the last day of 2014! As the calendar flips over to 2015, we can jump and cheer for a new year of fashion trends; and say good-bye to the horrible trends of 2014. Buh-bye last years look!

Let’s look back on the bad fashion and street style trends from 2014, so we can move forward and enjoy the fabulous trends 2015 will bring us!

Goodbye 2014!

Radiant Orchid: This beautiful lavender hue was the color of 2014, but alas, it never really caught on. You may catch glimpses of it in patterns as we move into 2015, but don’t plan on a head-to-toe look of this hard-to-wear color. Au revoir!

Top Knot Buns: What were those weird, round buns sitting on the top of girl’s heads?! Those horrible buns were usually achieved by wrapping hair around a foam donut, wha?????? Look, if you need to insert a gross piece of foam in your hair to create a hairstyle, there is something wrong. Stay away from the foam donut top knot bun! Buh-bye!

Studs: The heavy metal, studded and spike look is done. Leave them in the back of your closet for the next Metallica concert you attend. Otherwise, they have no place in your wardrobe in 2015. Ouch!

Dark Nails: Dark nail were all the rage in 2014, but for 2015, medium colors are hot to trot. Steer clear of black nails and look for colors and metallics to paint on those nails. 

Undefined Waists: The day of not wearing a belt through those belt-loops is gone. If you have belt loops, wear a belt! Also, belt everything you can; dresses, coats etc. Belt it!

Hello 2015!

Marsala: This beautiful, deep red hue is the color of 2015. Look for it in prints and alone. Love it!

Shades of Blue: Multiple shades of blue are all the rage for 2015. Look for an oceanic color palette on warm spring days. So calm and cool, love that!

Fringe: This boho-chic trend started to gain momentum in 2014, but for 2015, it is all the rage! Let out your inner hippie or flapper, it’s time to fringe!

Comfort Shoes: Flat sandals, comfort sandals and flatforms are all the rage for 2015. Look for them worn with socks for a little sass and a fashion forward look. If this isn’t your thing, don’t fret, your pointed toe pumps are still hotter than hot 😉

Drawstring Handbags: The hot “IT” bag for 2014 is not relinquishing it’s #1 spot for the 2015 year. Look for drawstring handbags in all price points, from all brands/designers. It’s the “IT” factor.

There you have it! For more 2015 trend inspiration, click here for the spring/summer 2015 trends from the New York runways. 

Happy New Year and have a fabulous, fashionable 2015!

Getting back into boot cut

The past several years have been all about skinny jeans, but as we move into 2015, boot cut and flare jeans are gaining momentum. This means the formally “so three years ago” style is acceptable again; and may soon take over the number one denim style spot from the skinnies!

Since boot cut and flare jeans are making a comeback, I thought I would wear this pair of boot cut jeans to get myself back into the silhouette. Although I feel like skinny jeans make me look thinner, the boot cut jean is more comfortable. I also like the 1970’s retro vibe of boot cut jeans.

I am not ready to ditch my skinnies, they really do take about ten pounds off my 5’4″ frame, but a little bit of comfort and vintage flair mixed in never hurt anyone 😉 After all, I am a little bored of my skinnies, despite their slimming properties. What do you think of boot cut or flare jeans? Are you ready to rock the style or do you want to stick with your skinnies?
