#TrendyTuesday Spring into Stripes

The stripe is big this Spring Summer and it's being shown with all sorts of bright colors.  It is a daring look for many of us, so here are my tips for pulling it off:
1)  Minimize the multi colored piece in the look, by pairing it with simple neutral pieces.  If you wear a blazer, go black or white and add black shoes and jewelry.  Find the look above here.
2)  Repeat a bit of one color in the purse or earring or keep it neutral.
3)  Petites and Plus sizes may want to consider a monotone stripe (like the photo below).  Find the look below here.
The plus size can wear this horizontal stripe, because the stripe drapes at the sides and pulls the eye down, slimming the figure.  Petites can wear a stripe in a skirt if it is a maxi skirt, like the photo below.  This look can be found here.

#TrendyTuesday #BucketBags are Big!

I am once again, stalking the Keaton Row and our retailers' catalogs waiting for the new Spring Summer looks.  While I wait I have been drooling over the new hot trend in handbags:  The bucket bag!
The bucket bag is a fabulous tote bag that often comes with straps like a backpack and has fabulous style.  Above you can see a fabulous Rebecca Minkoff bucket bag with great details such as oversize gold grommets, gold and leather straps, fringe tassels and the fabulous bottom yoke.  I love Rebecca Minkoff bags and this one is high on my wish list with interior pocket to keep me organized!  You can find the red bag above here.  

I found two under $100.00 for the girl on a budget.  One with fabulous woven texture and one with quilted detail. You can find the two black bags above here.  
Be sure to check out my Handbag Happy Lookbook for more great bucket bag looks here.  
You will find embossed leather, silver snakeskin, animal prints, great color and white for Spring Summer.

#TrendyTuesday: All About the Bass, I Mean A Line Skirt

Do you love a skirt to set the tone of your whole outfit?  Do you find yourself skirts first, and jackets and tops afterward?  Or maybe you're a fan of the A Line skirt?  Then you might want to check today's Trendy Tuesday Post out.  Today I am sharing three fabulous A line skirts that take center stage and flatter your figure.  Each skirt has a different fabulous look that will flatter.  The skirt above takes center stage with a beautiful print and a bit of sheen.  I've paired it with a simple funnel neck sweater and clean line short jacket in grey to match the grey of the print.  Find the look above here.

Below, the A Line skirt has clean tailored lines with a inverted pleat. 

You can pair these clean lines and solid colors with an abstract blouse to add color and softness.  These pumps have just the right heel for the office and are ON SALE.  Find the light grey inverted pleat skirt here.
And finally, the A Line skirt with beautiful color.  Not sure about the bold skirt, you can repeat the color in your necklace, bracelet or earrings to help pull the look together, or add classic gold or silver.

#FrugalFriday #Leopard #Boots

Once in awhile you run across a find and wonder how you found it still in stock in your size at the sale price.  Today I am hoping I have found such a sale for you!  I listed a pair of leopard print boots I loved back in October (shown below).  They were originally, $341.10, and are now marked down to $204.66.  But it's the boot at the top of this post that is the Frugal Friday find!  At $64.90 it survived to make the sale markdown, because Keaton Row had a default color listing in solid black.  I didn't see it, until I searched the catalog with the keyword leopard.  You can find the sale boot above here.
Pair these boots with your favorite jean, pants, skirts or even dresses.  Leopard is read by your eye as a neutral, so it is a versatile item to have!  As usual, shipping and returns are free!

#TrendyTuesday: Handbag Happy with Fringe

I am always amazed to see the Spring looks showing up at retailers before my Midwestern self is ready to shop for them.  So today, instead of starting to talk Spring clothing trends I thought I might start with an accessories trend I love:  fringe! You can find it on all handbag styles this Winter and the coming Spring Summer season.  It's in cross body bags, bucket bags, totes and more! 
Not sure if fringe is for you?  You can add just a touch of fringe, in a tassel, like this cross body bag below.  At $39.99 this bag by Topshop is a fabulous look!  It has a fabulous swirl embellishment and laser cut detail too!
And another favorite pick is the Steve Madden bag with fringe at the sides and the embellished with gunmetal details that will have you thinking of zippers!  It's available in several colors.
