Sandals with Stones and Jewels

As more and more stores begin displaying their spring and summer shoe inventory, I’m seeing an increasing number of earth-tone sandals that are adorned with stones, jewels, medallions and beads. I guess this is 2010’s answer to last  year’s hardware trend. I’m loving it–it’s like jewelry for your feet!

Kristin Cavallari Look For Less

Kristin Cavallari

Kristin, everyone’s favorite ‘villain’ from Laguna Beach and now star of The Hills, definitely embodies that “California blond” beauty. There is no better way to complement the tan skin characteristic of this look than with a cute little yellow dress. This photo is not very recent, but hey, the look still works!

Halle Berry is also at the top of my “Stylish Celebs” list. Everything she wears is simple and never over the top–and it looks fantastic. When is the last time you remember her being on any “Worst Dressed List”? Right? Just gorgeous.

Beating the Autumn Blues

This year, navy has been dubbed one of the hot makeup and nail polish colors for fall. I, for one, am also looking to navy for clothes and accessories. Pair dark shades of blue with neutrals such as white, cream and tan during the day. At night,  pile on gold and other metallics to bring the moody color to life.

Below are a few things in this hue that are currently inspiring me and bringing about all sorts of musings over fall outfits. Some are total steals, others are splurges (the Denim Cluster Earrings are gorgeous!) I’m enjoying navy so much right now that I think my next must-have item will be a navy leather motorcycle jacket, similar to the linen one I’ve included below.

Fall Boots Have Arrived!!!

'Blondee' Boots ($99.95, Steve Madden)

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I always get a bit sad as summer comes to an end (ok, I sound a tad melodramatic–it’s only August 11th). But one of the best things about being close to the beginning of a new season is shopping for new stuff, of course!

Anyone for whom shoe shopping is a science or simply an addiction knows that the end of the summer is the best time to get boots for fall. With the new shipments of fall products starting to hit the stores now, this is the time to snag boots in your size and preferred color. Come September, the only things left are usually in Shaquille O’Neal’s size or bright yellow with polka dots.

So, I said to myself today, “Self, let’s give our readers a peek at what we have to look forward to this fall.” Have a look at what caught my eye so far and keep an eye out for more updates in the weeks to come. The cold is coming but not all hope is lost!

Megan Fox: Transforming the Airport Look Into a Style Statement

Megan Fox

Megan Fox

Long flights are a drag. Squeezing yourself into that tiny seat, the stuffiness–unless you’re Victoria Beckham, this is not the ideal environment for wearing heels and a cocktail dress. So how can one avoid looking blah while traveling?

Transformers star Megan Fox manages to pull off being comfortable at the airport without sacrificing style. The key here is definitely to layer. A comfy cardigan worn over a tank looks cute and allows you to stay comfortable as you move from the freezing airplane to the hot temperature outside. To keep an airport look from looking overly pajama-like, add one dressy element such as embellished flats.

Don’t forget accessories, which can both earn you more style points AND make the look more functional. In addition to creating a funky, laid-back look, a pair of aviators and a fedora are very useful for hiding a make-up free face and airplane hair.

Don’t be surprised if this look gets you noticed at the airport. Just don’t pull a Megan and reject any cute little boys that try to give you flowers.
