How to Easily Add Interest to an Outfit

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

It seems like our lives are busier than ever these days. We’re running from here to there and everywhere in between. Whew! Any simplicity we can add to our hectic days is a huge plus. For many of us (myself included), we throw on some clothes and run out the door. Sometimes we don’t have the time or the energy to put much thought into our looks. We don’t want our outfits to be boring, though. How do we easily add interest to our outfits?

No worries! There are three easy ways we can quickly add interest to our looks. Let’s check it out!

#1: Add Prints

Adding any type of print will instantly make an outfit look more intriguing. Whether it be in a shirt, a scarf, a tank, a jacket, or the like, a print will elevate your look. Mixing prints will have an even bigger impact. Not sure how to mix prints? That’s okay, I wasn’t sure either. Check out my blog here about how I learned to mix it up.

#2: Add Jewelry

This is my favorite tip for adding appeal to a look. I love me some jewelry! Plus, it’s so easy to toss on some earrings, a necklace, and/or a bracelet when we’re running out the door. Taking the extra seconds to add jewelry, will be well worth the effort. You’ll look and feel more put-together. That can only help our confidence throughout our day!

#3: Add a Scarf

Adding a scarf can add interest to a look and FAST! I know, I know, it’s summer and all, so we may not be thinking scarves. There are plenty of great light-weight scarves out there that can easily be worn in the warmer months. Kimonos are also a great alternative to wearing a scarf in the summer. Check out my kimono posts here, here, and here.

How do you add interest to your outfits?

That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day, lovelies!

Grayed Out with a Purple Pop

Welcome back to Talk Fabulous! We’re so happy you’re here!

I don’t know about you, but there’s some days when I just don’t have the energy to come out with an outfit idea. That’s when Pinterest, Instagram, or the inspiration outlet of your choice comes in handy. Today’s recipe style came straight from Pinterest. My look is pretty close to the original, although I switched up the teal necklace for a more petite purple one. I do like the look of the larger necklace, but all-in-all I’m not mad at this outfit!

Where do you find outfit inspiration?

Floral Fun

Welcome back to Talk Fabulous! We’re so happy you’re here!

Nothing says summer like sunny skies, warm breezes, and beautifully colored flowers. Ah, summer! And nothing says summer fashion like a nice, beautiful floral print. I was feeling extra summery today, so I reached for this floral print tank top. I paired the tank with some black leggings, a light weight sweater, and some black ballet flats. To finish off the look, I added a long layered necklace. I’m loving this floral outfit for summer!

What’s your go-to print for summer?

All the Pastels

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Pastels are the quintessential color for spring and summer. If you need a quick go-to look for the warmer seasons, simply throw on a pastel and you’ll be good to go. That’s exactly what I did in today’s look. I paired a pastel blue shirt, jeans, and my new pink espadrilles. The outfit was topped off some necklaces to bring the look up a level. It’s such an easy and effortless look for spring and summer!

Are you into pastels? Which pastel color is your favorite?

A New Favorite

Welcome back to Talk Fabulous! We’re so happy you’re here!

Today, we’re playing favorites…favorite shirts that is! This shirt was featured in my Spring Haul Update (here) and it’s quickly become one of my go-to shirts. The pattern, the color, the length, the fit, I just love it all. One of my favorite ways to wear it is by pairing the shirt with leggings and some black ballet flats. It’s a simply yet chic look that so comfy you’ll forget you look polished!

What are your favorites that you’ve been loving lately?

It’s All About Them Stripes

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

We’ve talked a lot about stripes this spring (see this post here). After all, stripes are having a moment. Plus, they’re so easy to wear and go with anything and everything. For today’s look, I switched out the teel accents in the inspiration pic for pink ones. I paired a striped black and white tank with black leggings and a light weight black sweater. The outfit was topped off with a pink statement necklace and strapy heeled sandals. I’m loving this look for a summer office ensemble. Even better, it goes striaght from work to a night out by simply removing the sweater!

Stripes can be tricky, though. The color, the spacing between the stripes, and thickness of the stripes can look different on different people. Check out the differences in the looks below. Experiment with what looks best on you.

Thats all for today. Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day, lovelies!

7 Tips for Wearing Make-Up with Glasses

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous! I’m so happy you’re here!

Today, let’s talk make-up tips with glasses. Recently, I switched back to wearing glasses full-time. My contacts were getting annoying and they were drying out my eyes. Plus, putting them in and taking them out was getting old. It’s just so much easier to throw on my glasses and continue with my day.

The thing is, though, putting on make-up with glasses can be challenging. Have no fear! I’ve put together 7 tips to take all the guesswork out of wearing make-up with glasses. Let’s get into it!

Tip 1: Use a color corrector

Glasses magnify your eye area. Piling on the concealer can make your under eyes look extra cakey. That’s not a look we’re going for. Instead, use a color corrector to neutralize the color under your eyes. Peach is a great choice for masking those pesky dark circles. Some color corrector followed by a small amount of concealer will have your under eyes looking bright and beautiful in no time! Check out my color corrector review here.

Tip 2: Minimal eye-shadow

Again, remember the glasses magnify the eye area. So, eye-shadow that is not blended just perfectly will stand out like a sore thumb. I’m blind as a bat without my glasses. Putting on eye-shadow and flawlessly blending it out is nearly impossible. No worries, though, there’s an easy solution. Either use a base colored eye-shadow or none at all. How easy is that?!? Plus, the make-up trend this year is light eye-shadow and bright lips. Win, win!

Tip 3: Match eyeliner thickness to frame thickness

Eyeliner is a must do step when wearing glasses. As always, eyeliner makes your eyes pop and become the focal point of your face. We all want that, right? The key when wearing eyeliner with glasses is easy. Simply mach the eyeliner thickness to the thickness of the frame. This will balance the eye-wear and your eyes and create a fabulously perfect look.

Tip 4: Use volumizing mascara

Mascara can be tricky when wearing glasses. Lengthening mascaras can create too much length and brush against the lenses. That gets annoying as it becomes constantly necessary to clean the lenses. Use a volumizing formula for best results. The magnification from the glasses coupled with the volumizing effect on your lashes will make them look fierce! Additionally, no need for bottom lash mascara when wearing glasses. That’s great news as far as I’m concerned! Check out my favorite volumizing mascara here.

Tip 5: Do your brows

Brows are often overlooked. The impact they have when done, though, is undeniable. This is even truer when wearing glasses. Make sure you do your brows! Check out my favorite brow product and the full scoop on the importance of doing your brows here.

Tip 6: Don’t forget your skin

So far, we’ve been talking about make-up around our eyes. We don’t want to forget the rest of our face, though. When wearing glasses, don’t skip the foundation. Again, I’m mega blind without my glasses. I’ve found using powder foundation is the easiest to apply and blend without being able to see much. Check out my favorite powder foundation here.

Tip 7: Layer on the lipstick

Last, but not least, layer on the lipstick. The eye-shadow is kept minimal, so to balance out the look add a bold lip color. The minimal eye look coupled with a bold lip is so on-trend this year. It’s the perfect time to rock out this look! I’m still loving the MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick from Wet n Wild. Find it here.

That’s it! 7 easy tips to look great in glasses. I’d love to hear which eye-wear you prefer? Glasses, contacts, or none of the above (lucky!)?

Rainbow Pop

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

It’s been pretty rainy lately. Nothing counteracts the dark, stormy days like a nice pop of color. For this outfit, I went with a white top and cardigan, skinny jeans, a pop of pink, and a colorfully fun scarf. I topped off the look with these pink espadrilles. I’m not loving them with the skinny jeans, though. People wear espadrilles with skinny jeans all the time and look fabulous. It’s just not a look for me, I guess. That’s okay. We don’t all look great in all the fashion trends that come along.

How do you beat rainy days?

You Win Some, You Lose Some

Hey, lovelies! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Sometimes we create an outfit that is absolutely stellar. Other times, though, our outfits may fall short of our expectations. Today was one of those days where my look did not turn out like I wanted it to. The coral cardigan combined with the white top and black leggings was fine. The coral necklace was a great addition as well. However, the cardigan was really too short for this long length top. Those pieces just didn’t jive well together and it brought down the whole look of the outfit.

Do you ever have days when your outfit isn’t quite a winner?

Blushing Pink

Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today’s outfit was inspired by wanting to wear yet another of my new spring shirts (see my Spring Haul Update here).  It doesn’t feel much like spring here today, I think we may have reverted back to winter. To add some extra warmth to this blush tunic tank, I threw on this cream cardigan. I paired the top with these pull on bootcut jeans, ballet flats, and finished off the look with a long layered necklace for some interest. I’m kida digging this outfit!

How do you add extra warmth on cold spring days?
