26 Fashion Tips I’ve Learned Over the Past 26 Years!

 

This weekend I will be turning the big two six. I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. For one, 26 is one of those numbers where you have no idea what to celebrate. I now can rent a car. I can have a glass of wine. I can…well… do everything that I could pretty much do at 25. And whether that is a good thing or a bad thing I’ve yet to figure out.

Then there is the inevitable thinking back to what you thought you would be doing at 26 when you felt like 26 felt was a lifetime away. Somewhere between junior high and high school I had convinced myself I would be chatting it up with Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts. Ya know, after my brilliant debut on GMA (Good Morning America) in which we would clearly become friends.

I’ve heard (from Oprah) that your 20′s are for figuring it out. And if that’s the case, I believe I’m at least succeeding or attempting to do just that. The one thing I’m sure of is that I’m wiser than the year before. In which case, why not impart my wisdom (of some sort) with some of the best fashion tips I’ve learned over the past 26 years. So here it goes:

 

1. Put your nails in a bowl of ice water to dry in 60 seconds

How To Pack For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday of the year.  The fall foliage is on full display, you’re surrounded by family and friends, and the food is never-ending.  But if you’re one of the many young professionals who no longer call their hometown “home”, Thanksgiving is also a time filled with stressful travel arrangements and the realization that you have to complete that dreadful task required of anyone going anywhere for any reason at all: packing.

Ombre Look for Less for Fall

While ombre was a major trend this summer, I think it can be easily incorporated into fall. I love the subtle effects of this trend and how it can be worn many different ways.

I was really inspired by the Spring Ready to Wear 2013 looks from Burberry Prorsum. While, this is a spring look I think ombre should still stick around for fall.

(The Calm Before The Storm) A Week of T-shirts & Freedom From The Internet Before Fashion Week

Based on my title you might be led to believe that I’m going somewhere exotic, but lets be real I’m on an entrepreneurs budget and the most exotic place I can get to is a family vacation in North Carolina. Not that I am dissapointed by that for one second. The need for a vacation is something that I’ve been craving for over a year now. Since it is finally around the corner I couldn’t be more elated. For the first time in probably over two years this 20 something is going to take a one week break from posting on my blog. Crazy, right?

How to Have A Frizz-Free Summer

We’re in the thick of it.  No I’m not talking about summer.  I’m talking about Frizz season.  By the time July rolls around, we’re all pretty much swimming in frizz.  While we have visions of the laid back beachy waves and long luxurious tendrils, the reality is much more frustrating.  Within five minutes of walking out the door, most of us end up succumbing to tying all our hair back in defeat and calling it a day.  But why let frizz win?  We are grown women.  Isn’t it time we learned a few hair tricks to deal with the unruly hair demon?

“I’m On A Boat” – Look for Less

While Andy Samberg’s hit song “I’m On A Boat” might be a giant inspiration for this look for less, I don’t think his “swim trunks and flippy-floppy’s” is the look I want you to achieve. But his boating adventures and dreams are the perfect inspiration for nautical style. From anchors to stripes, nautical is definitely a hot style this summer.

Neon & Neutral Inspired by Jason Wu Resort 2012 – For Less!

Neons and neutrals are the perfect way to add some color to your life without looking like an array of neon light signs. Check out Jason Wu’s Resort 2012 Collection that debut this week. Neon bags with neon accents incorporated into neutral outfits equals sophistication yet fun.

Neon and neutral can be intimating to put together, it’s a quirky combo that works perfectly when done right. Some advice I have to offer is to choose a piece that does the work for you. Try this dress from ASOS, with an Aztec print on top paired with a neon skirt. Or pair this neon and black striped top from Forever 21 with some black or white shorts for an easy neon and neutral look.
