Sneak peek from our recent shoot featuring model, Valen Sparks and wardrobe from The Dash Me Shop


Ever since I purchased this awesome Old Navy denim button up (very similar to the picture below)

I have attempted to wear it with every and everything. It wasn’t until I was randomly going through the photos in my phone, that I noticed I had worn this particular button up in so many ways to…


Gloomy day?  Add color!

I woke up this morning to rain, which always makes me want to crawl back in bed.  However, not having this option I chose a little color and pattern to give me a little pep on a dreary day!

Blazer and necklace (F21), Pants (Ann Taylor), shoes (Unisa) both from Dash Me.

By the way, my kids told me my pants made them dizzy and hallucinate!  HMPH, what do they know anyway?  LOL!  :-)

You can check out my Polyvore link here which provides suggestions on where you can purchase similar items.  I think I actually like this look with the floral pants better.  HMMM!!!!

Make it a great day and Live Simplistically!

Effortlessly chic!


Sequins, Lace and Stripes, OH MY!  What I wore today…

I finally had the chance to break out this dress with a brief intermission of warmer temps in Chicago. I am not a girly-girl so to tone down the lace, I added a striped button down and a denim jacket. I dress in layers anyway because you never know what Chicago will do next.

The dress is from Dash Me! A clothing swap company I had the pleasure to meet a few weeks back. Feel free to check out their blog here. I also got the necklace and bracelet (which is a necklace) on Etsy here.

Dress/Sunnies (Dash Me!), Striped shirt (Forever 21), Denim Jacket (JCrew, thrifted), Shoes (Zara), Sequined clutch (Forever 21), Necklace/chain bracelet (Tubby Tabby, Etsy)

This is cool.

Tips and Tricks for Rocking a Cropped Top

  • I love the look of cropped tops, but I, like many girls, am a little uncomfortable showing my stomach. If that’s you, too, don’t worry: There are many ways to wear a crop top but still stay covered up – try wearing a cropped top with a fitted tank top underneath, or with a high-waisted pair of shorts or a skirt.
  • Another way to rock a cropped top but stay covered is to wear one over a simple dress. Be sure that the dress is fitted and not too patterned or busy for the best look.
  • The free-spirited vibe a cropped top gives off will look amazing juxtaposed against a pair of really structured shorts.
  • If you’re brave enough to show off your smokin’ hot abs, be sure to consider the venue. A picnic or concert with your friends is fine, but you might not want to bare your stomach while visiting your Grandma.
  • Look for varieties that are cropped, but still long enough to only show a sliver of skin when you move — this way, you get the best of both worlds!
  • Since certain cropped tops can cut your torso short, try pairing your crop top look with heels to elongate your entire body.
  • This is a bold item, so be sure to pair it with tons of confidence for the best look.

A crocheted cropped top like this one is the perfect centerpiece for a fun summer outfit. Pair it with a classy pair of loose shorts and teal espadrilles for an extra pop of color. Finish the look with a crocodile ring and feather earrings for a playful summer vibe.

Start this outfit off with a loose, striped cropped top and create contrast with a fitted white bandage skirt. Add a pair of wedges, and finish with fun accessories like this necklace with pair of glasses on it and color block bangles.

All In The Details—There’s nothing like an unexpected peek of pink or green to put a big ol’ smile on our face. Tackle the neon trend one detail at a time with some of our absolutely favorite hint-of-neon accessories that can wear well with nearly any ensemble.

Shape Up—Neon is a color family usually skew a little edgy. Stick it to the stereotype and look for neon pieces in feminine, traditional shapes, like a full skirt or a demure shell.

Neon In The Nude—Pair the brightest bright with a neutral for a megawatt contrast. this is a surefire way to make your favorite shade of neon really pop.

How To Wear Neon- Neon Trend

Pattern Play—We adore a vibrant neon print, like these ikat-pattern shorts, whose loudness can be played up with a contrasting neon blouse, or tuned down when worn underneath an untucked, plain blouse.

Double As Nice—Cash in on two trends by colorblocking neon pieces. Make sure each piece is clean, crisp, and structured, as anything too voluminous can overwhelm the effect.

"There are certain items that require a special window of time to shine - in this case, grasp those sunny-breezy days just before you’re breaking a sweat the moment you hit the sidewalk. 

Because a silky blouse is not friendly with perspiration, but it does make a jean short classy; a high-waisted jean more runway than 70’s runaway; maximizes the chic factor of a mini; makes your belt feel good about itself; prompts you to raid your mom’s 80’s jewelry collection for gold pieces; ETC.
