Memorial Day Sales come at the perfect time of year—the beginning of the summer season. If you’ve been following me on Instagram then you already know that I really enjoy shopping the Memorial Day Sales. I sport my summer capsule wardrobe for 3 months, starting June 1, which makes the timing for Memorial Day sales perfect for me. If I wait until Fourth of July, when seasonal merchandise gets the clearance sale treatment, I’ll already be halfway through the summer season. And besides, by mid-summer, I’m already starting to think about upcoming back-to-school sales and my fall capsule wardrobe.
While I enjoy shopping during this holiday weekend, I don’t want to spend the entireweekend visiting the stores. To ensure that my shopping sessions are short and fast I follow these 3 steps:
Next Sunday is Easter Sunday in the United States which brings with it 1 very important question—what are you going to where for Easter? As with any holiday you have 2 options: “going all in” or “a gentle touch.”
Sporting a new dress on Easter Sunday is the classic outfit for this holiday. While any style and pattern of dress will do, the most common Easter dresses are typically floral prints or pastel colors. If you’re interested in “going all in” for Easter Sunday, a dress is the perfect choice.
But what if you’re like me? I’m not a dress gal, at all. In fact, my current wardrobe doesn’t have even one-single-dress. So what’s a gal like me to do for an Easter Sunday outfit?
Today is St. Patrick’s Day in the US and if you are thinking about dressing for the holiday today you have 2 options; “going all in” or “a gentle touch.” The 2 outfits on the top are examples of “going all in.” The first outfit is the ultimate example of “going all in” when dressing for a holiday because it’s a costume! The fun top in outfit #2 is another strong nod to the holiday. The 2 outfits on the bottom are examples of “a gentle touch.” Both outfits have colors that align to the holiday, without the bold patterns and prints of the first 2 options.
This t-shirt is a lovely option for Valentine’s Day, isn’t it? Or is it?
The first holiday of the new year is one of my favorite’s—Valentine’s Day! Of course, the stores have moved full steam ahead and the shelves are currently filled with lots of sweet treats, stuffed animals, a bunch of sparkle, and of course lots of shine. And I want in. As a lover of both the upcoming holiday and clothes in general, what’s the best way for me to acknowledge the holiday? Why with something new, of course! But the question is, what should I buy?
I have 2 options for a Valentine’s day outfit. Today I’m going to cover option #1—going all in.
The holiday season is long gone, but the weight I put on has stuck around. While I work to lose those extra pounds that crept on from too many holiday parties and Christmas cookies, here are my 3 favorite ways to hide the weight gain:
At the beginning of every new year companies flood the marketplace with advertisements on—diet plans, nutrition plans, exercise videos, gym memberships, etc. Regardless of how, the end goal is the same, to help someone reach their weight loss goals.
Well I say this year, why not turn that focus onto your wardrobe too.
