Trend Alert: Studded Pumps

When you are a dedicated fashion blogger follower as we are, we find ourselves noticing emerging trends as they come into being.  Those ‘must have’ products that every blogger seems to be sporting.  Lately, we have spotted these shoes on practically every blogger…and we can understand why.  A classic shape, with just enough heel to be glam and just enough bling to be edgy.  We’re in love.

Leather Lover

There is no argument that a leather jacket is a must-have in any wardrobe.  Perfect to add a bit of edge worn over a floaty spring dress, or to break up a double denim combo…so versatile and definitely a worthy investment.  Here are a few beauties we’ve spotted lately…

Glam Girl: Kristin

We’re very excited to introduce today’s Glam Girl: 25-year-old Kristin Clark, from the ever-fabulous Living In Color.  Hailing form Miami, Florida, Kristin’s flawless taste ensures her fun and daring ensembles are always delightfully put together.  Her style is colourful and vibrant and yet Kristin always manages to maintain a classic element to her look.   Read on to find out more about Kristin’s style inspiration, her blogging success to date and her favorite beauty tips…

 photo LIC1EDITED_zps38888221.jpg
What motivated you to start your blog?
I began Living In Color Print about 2 years ago after working backstage during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week one season. I was just interning at a PR company at the time, but was so inspired by the influx of the ‘fashion blogger’ on the digital space. Shortly thereafter I launched LICP; best decision ever! The site, which is now my full-time career, has brought me so much joy and so many incredible opportunities that I feel blessed to have experienced.

How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
Miami, and South Florida in general, is such a warm (practically tropical) region which encourages me to dress in brightly clad attire year round! Which I, of course, love.

Who are your style icons?
Blake Lively and Olivia Palermo are my two modern day icons – both women have a fun/vibrant style where they’re not afraid to be a little daring and try new things, yet they also stick with classic silhouettes and impeccable tailoring (the true key to any great look).

Name one piece every woman should have in her closet and why?
A classic cut Black Boyfriend Blazer, hands down. I’ve gotten SO much use out of mine over the years. Whether it’s dressing appropriately for the workplace, happy hour with the girls, date night or even out on the torn over a sassy little mini dress – it’s such a versatile piece.

What items do you always carry in your handbag?
Soft Lips chapstick, lipstick (always a different shade to mix it up), headphones, a bandaid, blonde bobbie pens, and of course…my iPhone – oh what would we do without technology these days?!

 photo LIC4EDITED_zps6efd653d.jpg
What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
I’m actually not a huge beauty expect (certainly don’t claim to be!) so I rely a lot on makeup artists and YouTuber’s to teach me the latest and greatest tips and tricks. I think the best thing I ever learned was a few year’s back from an eye brow expert (cannot remember her name for the life of me) who taunt me the importance of a well shaped/groomed brow. Life changing I tell you.

Tell us… what is something not many people know about you?
I clap my hands like a penguin when I get reallyyyy excited.

What are your favorite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
Sticking to my blog’s mantra ‘Live Colorfully’, mixing and matching prints, patterns, and colors it was I do! Fashion is about having fun and experimenting, so why not! I love polka dots + stripes, florals + stripes, neon on neon,etc. Although lately, I’ve really been loving mixing textures together into one ensemble: chiffon, leather, faux fur, beading – you name it.

When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
Definitely fresh flowers (I’ve always been a sucker for flowers), and good quality time with the girls (brunch or happy hour does it every time for me).

How do you start your day? Do you have a morning routine?
Working from home sometimes it’s a bit tough for me to have a ‘normal’ routine. There are days where I wake up and decide to work from my bed the entire day, or mornings where I have to be at a client meeting or on a call. Regardless of what I have planned, I 100% always have to have breakfast each morning – I swear, I wake up hungry everyday!

Trend Alert: Beanie

With the low temperatures continuing across the Northern Hemisphere, a well placed beanie appears to be the accessory of the moment. Many of our favorite bloggers are donning the beanie as a welcomed, warming addition to their outfit. Equal parts edgy and cute, this look is a little bit grunge, a little bit snow bunny and definitely a trend to watch this season…

Glam Girl: Kacie

We’re excited to introduce to you 24-year-old Kacie Ellis from Sacramento, California.  Kacie writes the blog Kacie’s Closet which showcases her quintessential Californian style.  You can shop Kacie’s closet here, or read on to hear more about her style inspiration, her introduction into the blogging world and her favourite style tips…

 

 photo KacieUSE4_zps8bd5f6cb.jpg

What motivated you to start your blog?
I used to own an online clothing store and was looking for new ways to advertise. That’s how I discovered the blogging world. After following a few fashion blogs, I thought it looked like a lot of fun and would be a great way to showcase some of the items from my store. Since then, I have decided to focus solely on my blog and close my store. I have loved every minute of blogging and look forward to all that blogging has to bring in the future.

How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
Being a California girl, I think I have the California casual style. I grew up in a small country town and prefer jeans to dresses any day. Since moving closer to the city, I think my style has gotten away from the country look and is a little more city-ish.

Who are your style icons?
My top style icons who always look amazing are Julianne Hough (she’s my favorite at the moment), Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, and Olivia Palermo.

Name one piece every woman should have in her closet and why?
A black leather moto jacket. It makes any outfit look instantly cool and chic. You can wear it with jeans or over dresses and skirts. Plus, it will be in style for years to come.

What items do you always carry in your handbag?
My wallet and business cards are the essentials along with pepper spray and an emergency kit (my sister’s job is in emergency preparedness so she makes sure I’m prepared). You will also always find my favorite lip color, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey.

What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
Coconut oil! I put in in my hair from root to tip once a week. I leave it in for a few hours and then wash my hair like normal. It keeps my hair soft and prevents it from getting heat damage. You can also use coconut oil as an eye makeup remover, as face moisturizer, or as body lotion. Another favorite trick is using corn starch to set me makeup.

Tell us… what is something not many people know about you?
Not many people know that I have a lot of foot problems. I’m in a foot brace the majority of the time and my feet are always in pain. I’ll eventually have to have surgery but I’m not going to let any of that slow me down.

What are your favorite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
I have really been in to neutrals lately. I love mixing different neutral shades and colors. I also love to mix stripes, leopard, and plaid.

When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
I turn on music and dance. I sing along and pretend I’m actually a good singer.

What has been your biggest ‘pinch-me’ blogging moment?
For me, just about every moment is blogging has been a ‘pinch-me’ exciting moment. Whether it’s a company I get a chance to work with, a feature in a magazine, collaborating with other bloggers, or receiving emails from readers, I get so happy that this is what I get to do every day. Every time I get a new email regarding my blog, I call my mom and sister to tell them about it because I’m so excited.
