Fashion Fridays _ Overall Impressed

The Overalls Edition

Overalls are everywhere, you can get them in pants or dresses, long or short, even in colors and textiles other than blue denim. This look gives an simple effortless appearance that is not only comfortable but trendy as well. Once a wardrobe staple reserved for farmers during the depression era, hence dubbed the name “farmer browns”; they then later popped up throughout the history of fashion in the 60’s and 70’s with the hippie movement and then with rise of pop icons in the 80’s and 90’s. Nowadays, overalls are apart of modern day street style and when done right, you can look really superb and not like if you just walked off a farm.

Fashion Fridays _ Mommy Chic

The Fashionable Mothers Edition

Hey my lovely Trendsetters, it’s Fashion Friday and today I’ve written this post in dedication to all the wonderful, fashionably, inclined mothers out there. So without going any further I would like to wish all my Trendsetters that are mothers and those play a mother’s role a Happy Mother’s Day in advance. When we fashionistas think of the word mother, she is the woman that we’ve all asked for styling advice, borrowed clothing, chatted about the latest fashion craze and of course hit the stores for some retail therapy. Then when you become a mother, your realize it’s like an unspoken rule to become second fiddle to your children and now you have to juggle caring for them and still keeping your look together. As a new mother, it’s easy to see how some women become overwhelmed and find themselves in a rut and as the saying goes “let themselves go”; but you have to find a balance and think comfort yet chic while you quickly create your look on your busy schedule. It’s always good to give credit where credit is due, so I tip my hat to all the mothers who manage to always look effortlessly chic when stepping out.

Here are a few of my fashionable mother looks…….

Valentine’s Day Outfits For The Hooked, Hitched or Free

valentine's day date night outfit ideas

Some people get wild and giddy each year when Valentine’s Day comes around and other for various reasons cringe at the idea. But the bottom line is my trendsetters is that we all like to look our best no matter our relationship status, whether it be hooked, hitched or free. So here’s some outfit inspiration for date night on Valentine’s Day……

For my ladies with a significant other, it doesn’t matter if you will be going on a first date or if you’re going out with your longtime love, the goal is to keep your date’s eyes on you and keep him close all night long. Take your pick for a date night that includes a fancy romantic dinner with a lush setting or maybe you just want to catch a romance comedy at the movies and then dinner or drinks……..

Date Night 1

Date Night 2

For my single ladies you don’t have to stay home, it’s a great opportunity for a Girl’s Night Out with the squad and either treat yourselves with a nice dinner date or party the night away. Gather up all your single friends on valentine’s day and celebrate the love of friendship ……

valentines-day

Valentine’s Day is coming once again and nearly everything and everyone will be covered in red, some love this time of the month while others dread it. However after living in Venezuela were they refer to this day as “the day of love and friendship” (El Día de Amor y Amistad), I feel that we can all enjoy this day  even if you don’t have a significant other. My first ever Valentine was my mom and even up till now she still gives me a nice card, a rose and chocolate every year. So, we can still celebrate this day and appreciate all the love received throughout our lives from family and friends. Come on, we don’t need to be “in love” to look chic. Whether you plan to spend that day or night on a date, hanging out with some friends or ride out the day solo  home watching movies, it doesn’t matter.

So if you’re looking for some outfit ideas with colors other than the traditional all over red here are a few:

The Date

Wear something that is flirty and  adds charm.

  • Pink Dress
Pretty In Pink
  • The Little Black Dress
A Pop of Red
  • Floral Print

Riding Solo/ Night on the Town / Hanging Out With Friends

Try wearing something that’s chic and comfortable.

Free Spirit
Let's Tango
Life Is A Peach
So however you decide to spend Valentine’s Day, stay chic and fab!
