Fashion Rules

Me in one of my first modeling shoots circa 198something

Do you follow fashion rules? I think there are some fashion rules that are totally made for a reason, and personally would not break, but others, are definitely made to be broken. Here are a few common (and not some common) rules/faux paus to keep in mind (or not) when you’re dressing…

  1. No white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day (unless of course we are talking winter whites and velvets)
  2. This time frame (above) also goes for linen
  3. No corduroy during the summer months
  4. No visible bra straps
  5. No mixing animal prints
  6. Don’t over accessorize
  7. Socks with word..ugh
  8. Don’t mix too many fashion trends in one outfit- reign it in girl!
  9. Too much denim! (on the top, on the bottom, and everywhere in between)
  10. Mixing black and brown (not all neutrals go together!)
  11. Clothes that totally don’t fit you- too big or too small
  12. Pattern mixing
  13. Dressing “your age”
  14. Say no to fanny packs
  15. Dress in this decade
  16. Wearing white to someone else’s wedding

What do you think? Yay or nay to these rules- I personally follow 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 ALL. THE. TIMES. (Because ironing linen is a pain in the ass anyway and I literally wouldn’t be caught dead with socks and sandals!) As for other so called “rules”, corduroy mini skirts are freaking adorable, one might say you can never over accessorize, these fanny packs are the shit, and I almost exclusively try to dress out of this decade…so, there’s that…)

Here’s the new fashion rules for 2017, according to experts. 

And as for rule number 13…SCREW THAT! Here’s the BEST ARTICLE that speaks to dressing your age! And, by the way, wear whatever the F you want.

I’m beyond stoked that summer is just around the corner. I can already feel the warm sun on my back, the sand in my toes, the waves washing over me. It’s only going to be mid-70’s today, so I’m going to dream about surf style for my endless summer of 2017.

Bathing Suits!

Capture_170509.pngAs you can see, the last time I bought a bathing suit, I was incredibly pregnant… If you’ve ever had to buy a bathing suit while pregnant, you know it’s not the most fun thing. There are very few choices, like honestly, I think I had 2 total choices, because I was not going to spend a ton of money on a maternity suit that I wasn’t that thrilled to be buying to begin with. So, now, here we are, almost a year later, and I’m so excited to go bathing suit shopping! There are so many cute styles out there this season! (I especially love the original prints and vintage cuts!) Here are some I’m swooning over! (Plus, I included a little bonus Mommy and Me section at the bottom of this post, now that I have a little girl to buy for too!)

*Also, many of these links are from Unique Vintage– which carries many of these suits in all sizes!*
