Maxis are all the rage for Spring/Summer 2012 and well into Fall. They are so comfortable to wear, girlie and easy dress up or down! On cold summer nights, you can pair them with a moto jacket for an edge, a boyfriend blazer for a vintage feel or a beautiful scarf for an all around feminine look.
There are an array of styles you can choose from (as seen below). I have put together the top six trends; color block, aztec print, tie-dye, floral, stripes and solid colors.
Be sure to have fun and explore with happy hues and prints!!!
This week, we are focusing on the little ones! I understand that our kids grow fast but the trick that has always worked, especially for my 3 kids, is buying their clothes a size or two bigger so they can grow into it. If you have more than one child, you can also pass it down the line, and get more than your money’s worth.
Personally, I have put my daughter in clothes that my son used to wear. Blazers, oxford shirts, fitted tees, straight cut jeans – and they look really chic and stylish on her. She loves it. Plus it adds sentimental value and creates a deeper bond for them.
Whether you are making the clothes, buying them at Macy’s, Target or the GAP, it’s all about how you pick each item and how you put them all together. I can’t speak for anyone else’s kids, but my little ones definitely enjoy wearing fun and different outfits.
Here are some summer essentials and looks that I have put together. You can mix and match these pieces below; together they’ll make a great foundation for tons of fun summer outfits.
I am so excited it is finally Spring! The birds are chirping, the weather is warming up, the flowers are blooming and it’s time to spruce up my hair!! So I am rocking some extensions for a little while and I am excited to play with the additional hair. The cool thing is, I have still been using my Ouidad products even though my hair is straight. I clearly I still need my Climate Control! It’s been raining a lot lately and the humidity is ugghh, way too much for it to be so early in the season. So thanks to Ouidad, I can use their products on not just my curly hair, but also my straight hair and extensions.
I want to share some of my summer styles I am loving right now:
Day 1: Don’t you just love fishtail braids?? I have been wanting to try one for so long. I practiced on my hair a couple of times. Hopefully, I can make it happen.
Day 2: Braided Crown. Okay, I’m obsessed with braided styles as you can see. You can do them with curly, wavy, or straight hair.
Day 3: Side ponytail with a side part! So simple and chic and it’s not just for little girls. Rock your tresses in a low ponytail to
Day 4: High buns are so haute! I love wearing them. You really show off your face with a cute, messy high bun.
Day 5: Half up/Half down is a style I used to always do as a child but you can rock this in a grown up way for the Spring.
Spring has finally sprouted and not a moment too soon. I’ve been patiently waiting, through the cold and what seemed like sunless months, for this season.
What have I been waiting for you might ask? Well, with these new months comes flower, showers, and new hairstyles!
There are so many great looks I’ve been itching to wear for Spring. Something about the heat from the sun and the light breeze of the evening winds makes me long for big and bold twist outs. I’m also thrilled to give wash & go’s a go, no pun intended.
Of course, you can never go wrong with a fro hawk in Spring. And, for the rare times when I just might have my curls straightened, a nice messy top knot.
