I saw this tunic on the sales rack and I couldn’t resist…so I paired it with one of my favorite thick leather belts to give it a more tailored look. In the fall I would add a navy blue or coral boyfriend blazer to make it pop with a bit of flair! This piece can easily transition between seasons!

It’s hot and when it’s hot I like to be comfortable, so I grabbed the most comfortable jean shorts (from American Eagle) I own and paired it with my favorite gold pieces from Kendra Scott and my new favorite store Avenue Boutique. Sometimes I like to keep it minimal but colorful!

In April Morgan McLane with Morgan McLane Photography and myself had a Styled Photo-shoot Giveaway.

IMG_5412

Our winner that was chosen is truly amazing; her name is Melanie Van Klaveren and she is a Beachbody Coach. Morgan and I went to her house to talk about what she was looking for in her photo-shoot and we learned so much about our amazing winner! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason because we completely hit it off and had a fun time going through her closet and deciding where we wanted to shoot! Melanie has an amazing personality and is beautiful inside and out and we were very excited to help her with her brand as a Beachbody Coach as well as her website! I pulled looks out of her own closet and paired them with accessories and shoes. You don’t always have to go shopping for new and improved looks….it sometimes just takes another set of eyes to look in your closet and pull great pieces that compliment your body type and color.

We shot under the beautiful Arizona sun on a sunny Sunday morning; we choose this location because it is beautiful and colorful as you can see below. We also had a camera crew (my husband) follow us on the shoot because I LOVE behind the scene looks. We had a blast and I cannot wait to do a giveaway like this again with Morgan McLane!

Wow, I can’t believe that it’s already summer and I am talking about summer wear. This year has been flying by (I feel like spring lasted about a week). With that being said I have to wear outfits that are comfortable and perfect for this Arizona heat. For those of you that know me, you know that I own about 20 rompers in my closet because they are A.) easy to throw on because there are not any layering pieces besides jewelry and B.) because it is too hot to wear anything else but shorts in the summer. For those that do not feel comfortable with short rompers, Urban Outfitters also carries longer-length rompers, with a quarter sleeve <3  This romper can also transition to the fall by pairing  with a boyfriend blazer and some combat boots.

This Block and Battaglia clutch is my “go to” lately because it is light weight, convenient and goes with just about everything in my closet and it is locally made here in Arizona (which makes me love it more). Check out Christine’s Etsy website.

Picking out a swimsuit should be a fun process but for most it’s not. A lot of my clients have been asking me to pull swimsuits for them during their shopping appointments. I’ve noticed that when they walk into the fitting room and see the swimsuits hanging they are instantly unsure and hesitant to try on. I assure them that I know it will look great on them and just to try it on……..and “POOF” they fall in love. It’s all about knowing what looks good on your body! Below is a little guide to help you find the perfect swimsuit for your body type this summer!

Petite and Short
personal stylist az
This swimsuit is perfect for the petite body type because the cut of the top and bottom elongates the torso making someone who has a short torso look long and lean. This top also has a small amount of padding to help form the suit to your chest (this top compliments women with a small chest). I also feel that this color scheme is perfect for any color skin tone.

Curvy
personal stylist
Sweetheart cut is probably my favorite cut in tops, dresses and of course swimsuits! This look can help minimize large chests while it helps support with the halter around the neck. Usually I say “no” with stripes on swimsuits but this style looks great and really helps shape your body because of the print on the sides of the swimsuit!

Curvy (Another Style)
f3b45f8a52624d7393383e9a1a08f447
If you want more of a sexy look I recommend going black, nude or red. This suit camouflages larger chests and shows off your beautiful curves!

Tummy Issues
personal stylist
For those that have tummy issues help is on it’a way. This sleek, black nylon suit is perfect to hide those problem areas as well as exsentuate your beautiful curvy body. Also, when looking for a swimsuit that hides your tummy look for spandex/nylon because that material with help support your body.

Larger Thighs
ten-pounds-slimmer-swimsuit
Black will NEVER go out of style; that is why I always have at least one black swimsuit in almost every style. This low v-neck is sexy and sophisticated and can be worn at any age. This style is also very flattering to larger thighs because it minimizes

Athletic Body Type
Athletic_0
Another style that is fun and flirty and gives you curves (that you may not already have) is this amazing colorful one piece with a little bit of flair. This swimsuit is perfect for someone that does not have any curves because once you try it on, it automatically gives you the hourglass shape with the peplum near the hip line!

So I hope this helps you on the first day of summer picking the swimsuit that looks and feels amazing!

This year I was paired up with Clothes Minded Boutique in Phoenix. We both worked together last year for MIM Rocks Fashion, so I was excited to be teamed up with Kim Kendall again. The pieces in her store are versatile for any look you are going for…dressy, casual or just the in-between. This spring is all about neutral and casual tones; so I decided to focus on simplicity meets effortless beauty and that is what shined on the runway this year at Phoenix Fashion Week’s Spring into Fashion show in downtown Phoenix. Below are a couple of interviews from the show by Phoenix Fashion Week and Valley Hype.

This was my first time getting a blow out at Park Avenue Blow Dry and Nail Bar and I loved the result! My hair actually stayed in place till the next day! 🙂 I felt like a movie star getting my curls pinned so of course I HAD to take a picture of it<3

All of the jewelry featured in my show were from Kendra Scott at  Scottsdale Quarter. I love her pieces because they can transition from day to night or a casual evening to a night out on the town. I own close to 10 pieces and I find new ways to pair them together everyday and you will see that from the looks on the runway.

I also teamed up with Block and Battaglia, the owner Christine is a full time real estate agent who when she’s not selling homes or running Block & Battaglia, spends her time focusing on her 2 great loves… her boyfriend and their son. Each Block & Battaglia bag is handmade by Christine, and all bags are one of a kind pieces. I have a clutch with Camelback Mountain on the front and I LOVE it (one because I am a native here in Arizona and two because it is just amazing!)
