If my waistline wasn’t expanding a mile a minute, I would love to pull off the summery crop tops that are popping up all over the place. Pair it with a skirt and it’s easy to go from beach to dinner for the perfect summer style.
new nudes trend for spring 2014
Spring is officially here. It’s time to break out the lighter clothing – not only in weight, but in color. Find a nude shade to fit your style & skin tone. If you’re fairer go for a pink tone and if you’ve got an olive complexion like me, try for a peachier finish.

Kicking back and Chillaxing
Do you remember these old Nokia cellphones? It was not that long ago when only business people had crazy blackberry smartphones, checking email every two seconds. Now, everyone and their dog has a smartphone! And yes, mom & dad, I do think it’s time you got one too. (:
Today’s outfit reminds me of college somehow. The relaxed denim shirt and comfy sandals, my college roommate wore this look really well. What’s strange is, this has never been my style… yet, I’m so drawn to it now. My style has definitely come a long way. I will have to post a fun fashion timeline one day and show you how my style has changed over the years.

Sales Saldi Soldes
The winter sales are back in Florence, they started on January 4th and will last for 60 days. Remember, Italy has sales twice a year, winter and summer. I tend to prefer the winter sales, I mean… who doesn’t love adding another pair of high-quality Italian leather boots to their ever-growing collection! ha ha. Okay, most stores are already marked down to 30-50% off, as the sales move along the prices may drop further to 70% – just remember, there will be fewer sizes and items to choose from as February approaches.
So…go out now and shop ’til you drop! (or at least, have fun window shopping with friends! – Jennifer, you down?)
