Frum on the Runway!

These are the ones I was talking about. They actually look BETTER in person.

Shopping on a budget

After the Neiman Marcus post I thought I should bring us back to reality with a simple outfit at a great price. I decided to ship at Banana Republic because if you shop at BR, Gap, Old Navy, and Piper Lime you only pay for one shipping cost!

This is a great, classic outfit in black and white.

I would then add these shoes

Because the blouse has a print, I dont think you need a necklace but these bracelets would be nice

What I like about this outfit is the simplicity of the black and white and then the addition of fun color in the shoes and jewelry. You could also wear this outfit more understated with a black pair of pumps, or even casual it up a bit with a black pair of gladiator sandals.

Tuleh rocks!

I found this really great brand that has a ton of frum clothing. Unfortunately it is also incredibly expensive, but I thought you might want a peek at it. Sometimes I get great ideas on new colors and new ways to wear clothing by looking at garments I cant afford.

Spring Trend: Earthy

Earthy. What the heck does that mean? From what I could tell from the spread in InStyle it basically is a renaming of the 'ethnic' or 'tribal' trend of the last few years. Lots of pattern in shades of khaki, olive, yellow, green, and natural materials such as wood, cork, raffia, and bone. I happen to love this look because it is perfect for all of my full length sun dresses and colorful hair wraps. I like to call it 'gypsy chic' but 'earthy' is fine too. Whateves. Here is a version of the outfit I am wearing today that embodies this look:

I love this dress It is comfortable and chic all at the same time.

I collect printed long sleeve tops all year long. I like this one because it has all my favorite shades of blue, green and yellow.

I wanted to show you two different versions of the type of shoe I would wear with this dress. The first one is sort of a fantasy shoe- I don't have the time or patience to clonk around in those shoes, but if I DID have the time, I would rock these shoes. The second pair of shoes
are similar to the shoes I am wearing. I like the woven detail and I am sure the flats would be much more comfortable then the platforms.
All that is left is the accessories:

You can find the purse here the bracelets here
the earrings here and the belt here

Spring Trends: Ruffles

One of the big trends of the season is ruffles. As it turns out, I don't love ruffles. I find them distracting. Plus, I have a 'small frame' and I am short so I feel like a wedding cake when I wear them. However, I like ruffles when OTHER people wear them. So here is a sprinkling of ruffled tops at some really good prices.

You can find them here, here, here, and here.

Spring Trends: Khaki

The next trend is khaki. Khaki was seen all over the runway, but in my opinion, khaki has been a staple FOREVER! I have been wearing khaki in various shades for years now, and my favorite color combo was khaki and light blue. I still think that is a classic look, and it will never go out of style, but I am more interested in the khaki and orange combination I have been seeing. So check this outfit out:
Start with a fun peasant blouse with a touch of orange. You can always wear a white shirt to lengthen the sleeves underneath this one.

Then add a khaki skirt

I like the leaner shape of this skirt contrasted with the fullness of the shirt.

If you are feeling a little chilly, or you don't want to add an undershirt to your outfit, wear this
This jacket is a must have for the spring. It is so versatile because it can add some fashion to any basic ensemble.

The only other thing you need to complete the jacket is a great pair of shoes

a casual bag

and some hoop earrings
and you are good to go! This would be a perfect outfit to do errands or go shopping with the girls. So if you have some khaki garments in your wardrobe, think about combining them with some orange for a fresh spring look.
