Style Detail Highlight: The Statement Sleeve | Designing From My Closet

The statement sleeve is a style detail that is being seen on high end and more budget friendly items.  Any sort of embellishment, cut out, or dramatic shape including pleats and trumpet and bell shapes.  Some are more subtle, while others shout “here I am”, in other words, this trend has a little something for everyone.


Green St Patrick’s Day Lookbook

Green St Patrick's Day Lookbook | Designing From My Closet

Happy St Patrick’s Day!  I can’t believe we are officially in the spring season beginning Monday.  Time sure is flying by.  Green is my absolute favorite color and has been ever since I can remember, so dressing for St Patrick’s Day has always been a special treat for me.  Here are four looks I recently pulled together from items in my closet that have green in them.  They not only are appropriate for today, they are perfect for all Spring long!  Most of these items have been thrifted or purchased at discount retailers such as Target and Charming Charlie so they are very budget friendly.


Spring 2017 Who What Wear Collection Lookbook

Spring 2017 Who What Wear Collection Lookbook | Designing From My Closet

In the past I have been impressed with the Who What Wear Collection at Target, but this Spring, they have really blown it out of the water!  I fell in love with so many of their pieces that I had to put a lookbook together for you.  The items are so easy to wear and pair not only with items from past collections, but also with items I already had in my closet plus thrifted finds.  Today I have four looks to share with you showing items from the Spring 2017 Who What Wear Collection.

Mixing Prints & Texture in a Black & White Outfit | Designing From My Closet

I have done several posts in the past on the topics of mixing prints as well as adding texture to an outfit.  In fact, here is a list with links of some of them:

Today I am taking a new spin on the entire topic and creating an outfit by mixing prints and using texture, but this time in black and white.  I have been pushing myself to embrace this color palette even though I am partial to wearing colors all the time.  And I am so glad I have!  It has opened up a whole new world and has given me the opportunity to be really creative and inject my own personal style with this classic combination on tones.

My Spring Must Haves | Designing From My Closet

It has been so refreshing to actually get cold weather in wintertime here in Southern California as we rarely get to experience the different seasons.  I have been reminded of winter seasons in life as well and how they are much needed to then look forward to the fresh start and new growth that Spring brings.  As I look ahead to the coming months, I am being intentional with what I am bringing into my wardrobe and today I wanted to show you a few of my “Must Have’s” I found at Avenue.
