Yellow Mania in Apparel

 


Sunny Infused Delight



This Spring and Summer I am completely obsessed with yellow.  I cannot get enough of this high-spirited hue that brightens my day.  Whether I am noticing the sun or the glowing iridescent flowers in my backyard, I am transfixed.   When researching upcoming apparel topics, yellow is everywhere online and instore.  Perhaps this is because after months of negative energy, commentaries, tragedy with the virus or only plain ole gray skies, we need a touch of warmth and glittering gold. 


"Follow the Yellow Brick Road"





"How You Enter the World - Says Everything About You" 

In fact, people are craving warmth, positive comments, peace, hope and coming together. At least I am.  The yellow synergistic vibe of yesteryear is slowly to be resurrected.  The best path is to build a yellow brick road by adding something golden to your wardrobe.   It could be as subtle as a yellow barrette or earrings.   Furthermore, a yellowish touch makes you smile and speaks volumes of warmth to everyone. 

In Instyle, May 2021, Nicole Kidman, made a comment about taking care of yourself every day.  She learned from her mother and is passing on her secret to her children.  Kidman stated, "You need to smell good, look good, take care of your skin, file your nails, and take care of your feet.  Do it for yourself; it is your responsibility." I wholeheartedly agree.  

Each day is an opportunity to present your optimal self to the world.  If you get up, throw on sweats, do not take a shower, nor comb your hair, appear slovenly for a day of video conferences, then you are showing disrespect to yourself and to others.  Or perchance you spend all day wearing work out gear, put on a pair of jeans, pretty blouse and spritz on perfume before you have dinner.  For you! Step it up and shimmer amongst the throng.  Enter the world with grace and dignity. 




"What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language."  Miuccia Prada 

Think of people you see each day.  Are you putting your foremost self-front and center? Or are you only making do?  Those who dress for success, even with a mask on, are memorable and likeable. Your appearance, demeanor and behavior do matter.   People will make an impression of you within 30 seconds.  Do you want to be seen as confident, unforgettable, intelligent, kind, and gracious?  Or would you rather appear tragically messy, sad, angry, or apathetic about your own appearance.  Of course, the beauty of life, is you have the controls on how you are perceived. 

I know some are thinking, "who cares?" "I can dress how I like."    However, the rewards of caring about yourself are ten-fold.  When you feel good, make you a priority and dress well, you exude confidence, beauty, and intelligence.  The world becomes your oyster. 

Why not pull yourself together and gleam in the crowds of humanity.  Be the bright light that attracts and overshadows the negative and dullness.  This is your one shot, your life and no one else.  Why not be attractive, effervescent, noticeable, and humble.   Be the bright light.   


Hello Yellow

Mustard is between yellow and gold.  This hue is beautiful.  Bottom line, you may need to play around with kaleidoscope of yellow.   Once you find your favorite tone, purchase a few pieces to add vivacity to your step.

Happy Mother's Day! 


Until Next Time,

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
