The Calling Kimono

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Have you ever been getting ready and had the feeling that you must wear a certain item that day?  This phenomenon occasionally happens to me, but it was strong this morning.  The kimono was calling my name, saying “wear me!  wear me right now!”

I got so many compliments on this outfit today and I felt fabulous in it!  I wonder if I got more compliments because of the outfit or because I was feeling confident about it?   Something to ponder…

Usually, my favorite pieces in my closet or in my jewelry box are the ones that have a story behind them.  This kimono was made by my very talented bestie, Becca.  People are amazed when I tell them she made this because it looks so professionally done!  I’ve also worn it in cold weather look here.  Kimonos are a versatile clothing option.  They can be worn any time of year as they provide warmth in the winter yet are light and breezy enough to be cool in the summer.  That’s a win-win in my book!

Do you wear kimonos?

That’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  See you guys in my next post!

Waiting for the Right Look

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

From the moment I saw today’s inspiration photo on Pinterest, I’ve been wanting to recreate it.  I’ve attempted a few times, but it just wasn’t quite right.  This time, though, was a win!

Recipe Style:

I love the simplicity of this outfit.  The addition of the sandals and pop of color from the necklace gives the look just the right amount of interest.

For the restyle, I opted for a coral pop of color, which is perfect for summer!  Otherwise, I tried to stick as close as possible to the original look.  I’m loving how this outfit turned out.  It was definetly worth waiting to get this restyle right!

Do you wear leggings in the summer?

P.S.  I got a new do!  It’s a little shorter than I imagined, but I’m definetly not mad at it!  I let the hair stylist just do her thing.  Do you give free reins to your stylist or is that crazy?

Guys, something amazing happened!  The day I wore this outfit I had tacos for lunch that I consumed in my car.  What I was thinking, I have no idea.  I didn’t even spill on my white jeans, though!  It was a miracle!

What’s your signature color?

Teal Memories

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

It was love at first sight when I saw today’s inspiration photo.  I wanted to recreate the look but didn’t have a white shirt with the right neckline for a long necklace.  Instead, I opted for this brown top, kept the bootcut jeans and teal accessories, and added sandals and a fun teal bag.  Overall, I’m loving the look!

My Style:

It’s Gonna Be Bright

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

photogrid_1529380742420940009080539961339.jpg

I love me some bright colors in the summer!  Well, maybe always, but especially in the summer.  I mean seriously, how can you be sad in bright yellow and pink?  It’s nearly impossible!  See my winter and spring looks with this color combo.  Clearly, I love being bright!

For today’s look, I paired a bright yellow top with a pink tank, a matching pink sweater, and a jean skirt.  I finished off the look with some cute metallic sandals, a pink statement necklace, and a teal purse compliments of my sweet friend Becca (thanks, Becca!).  I love the vibe that pop of the teal gives the rest of the outfit.  It’s a little boost of something special and unexpected!

This past weekend, the hubby and I went to dinner with some of our dear friends. Once again, it was so HOT! Not to worry, though, I had plenty of hot weather date night options I couldn’t wait to wear! I wasn’t feeling overly creative, so I opted for a tank top maxi dress. The great thing about throwing on a dress is that I could spend more time accessorizing. Now we’re talking! These tassel earrings from the FabFitFun Spring Box had to make an appearance along with some gold and black bracelets. I’m quite loving this look for double date night!

How’s the weather where you are?  It’s getting HOT here.  I find dressing for the hot weather and the office very challenging.  I want to wear shorts and a tank top, but that’s not going to work.  Often times, I opt for capris, a tank, and a sweater.  Today is no different.  This outfit uniform makes it super simple to slip on the sweater as you’re going into work and take it off when you leave.  It’s the perfect way to balance the hot weather outside and the cool a/c inside.

What’s your hot weather work uniform?

Boho Red

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

I love me some red! That wasn’t always the case, though. One day my grandma told me that all blond haired girls should have one red shirt. So, I tried one on and I was hooked!

Recipe Style:

Today’s inspiration pic spoke to me with that bold red top. The look is so summery and simple. I couldn’t wait to recreate it!

My Style:

For the restyle, I opted for this red, boho top. Boho isn’t my go-to style choice, but it’s good to switch things up from time to time. I paired the top with my Levi’s pull on jeans from Wal-Mart (see post here). These are so comfy and stylish! You need these jeans in your life! I finished off the look with some cute sandals and silver and pearl jewelry. I’m really loving this outfit. It’s season appropriate (especially for these hot days), stylish, and best of all comfy! Style and comfort? We really can have it all!

Do you wear boho style clothes?

Coral is Back

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Ah, yes, coral!  One of my favorite colors, but especially in summer.  Seriously, how can anyone be anything but happy in coral?  Love it!  Today’s inspiration is simple but fabulous with coral front and center.  I couldn’t wait to recreate the look!

For the restyle, I paired a short-sleeved coral sweater with a white tank, skinny jeans, cognac ballet flats, a few bracelets, and a gold, coral necklace.  I’m in love with this look for summer!  It’s definitely one that will be on repeat this season!
