WHITE SHIRT REDUX
One of the trends I really love for spring and summer is the creative reinvention of the white button down. Or as the fashion set is calling it, the white shirt redux. For quick clarification–redux means “brought back or revival.” Now I’m not saying that white shirts ever really went anywhere, but I predict we’ll be seeing white shirts worn in a variety of new ways and morphed into unique shapes and silhouettes. You guys know by now that button ups are a staple of mine, and I’m always up for a styling challenge… especially if it involves reinventing a classic!
HOW TO PULL OFF A POWERFUL, RED SUIT:
A lesson on how to stand out in a daring red suit, take a look!
I am all about a powerful, red suit these days, no matter what the occasion. A red suit is the perfect way to stand out at a business meeting or at an industry event, and shows that you have confidence. And…who doesn’t want to stand out in a crowd? This red blazer jacket is vintage from my mother, and I like the militant details… like the gold buttons and the stiff mini collar. The jacket and pants don’t actually go together, but they sure look like they do! Together they create the perfect, cherry red suit. I’m all about creating my own suiting by pairing different blazers and trousers together because they’re unique and one-of-a-kind.
Just when I thought I couldn’t love ruffles anymore, these gorgeous pants came into my life! Earlier this week I doubled up on ruffles, and I’m doing it again! This time, by way of the cutest pants ever by Elizabeth and James. The second I put these on, I was in love. First off, they are so flattering! The oversized ruffle hem makes the leg look long and slim, and of course, they’re black so that helps too. They also cut off riiight above the ankle, which shows off the smallest part of the leg – brilliant.
I have been traveling so much lately – both for work and pleasure – and find myself drawing inspiration from all of the places I’ve visited. Most recently, I hosted the ULTA beauty convention in Orlando, Florida, which was one of the craziest things I’ve ever done! My duties as emcee for ULTA included getting up on a ginormous stage about 8 times a day to entertain the 2,600 person audience… not an easy fete, especially when the crowd is comprised mainly of women. Even though I was a bit nervous, it was such a cool and rewarding experience, and it seemed like everyone enjoyed my half-funny jokes 😉 As a TV host, I’ve done shows like ABC’s On the Red Carpet at the Oscars or the TODAY Show where millions of people are watching… but you don’t see all of those people staring right back at you! Which is why hosting a live, in-person event was one of the toughest things I’ve done to date! But of course, I’m so glad I did it.
