Quick Tip Thursday: Rock the Color Brown without Looking Bland

Hello! Today I wanted to give you some tips on how to style the color brown. I think it can sometimes be difficult to make brown look as chic as black but there are a few tricks to making it look less dull. Add a black base. Here I used a black turtleneck to accentuate the lace that is on this poncho. Get all of the brown/tan things in your closet and put them all on at once… Haha, OK I’m mostly joking, but I think that multiple shades of brown/tan really create a nice neutral outfit. Here I styled […]

Can I ask you a question? Do you ever catch yourself staring at something? Anything. Something apaling, something beautiful, something shiny… something provacotive? I took a spin class last week and it’s come to my attention that it’s kind of ridiculous the amount of staring that goes on in a public gym. This spin class was in a separate room in the gym, but it’s a room with mirrors all around on the inside, and on the walls facing outward, there are windows that let you look into the whole classroom. Right outside the classroom are tons of weight machines […]
