“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
                    – Audrey Hepburn

I think that it is so important that we as women find a way to make ourselves feel beautiful. That doesn’t have to consists of wearing as much make-up as possible or wearing designer clothing. It could be as simple as making someone else look beautiful which allows you to view your own inner beauty as a person. Whatever it is, and whatever way that we find makes us feel inside and out, stick with it and uplift the ones around you for what makes them feel beautiful as well!

Skater Skirts

I have a huge passion for make-up and the latest trends in clothing. Finding different styles and choosing the ones that look the best on me, as well as helping other people find looks that make them feel amazing, makes me feel wonderful and beautiful! Since I live in Arizona, it is literally spring and summer wpid-testUpload.pngfor 10 months out of the year. Here in May, we are already in the high 90’s in terms of temperature so clothing wise, we are already up and running on the summer wardrobe. This summers clothing trends are probably some of my favorite looks in a while. One of my greatest purchases for the summer season this year has been a skater/circle skirt. This trend is one of my front-runners for top look of the season. Let me just take a second to tell you why these are such a wardrobe essential.

  1.   They are flattering on EVERY body type, in my opinion.
  2.  They come in tons of materials, prints and lengths so there is something for every body type, age, and personality.
  3.  You can style the same skirt in so many different ways so it is a staple to have in your closet for the summer, and even into the fall I think.
  4.  THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL no matter how you choose to wear them, because you are styling them to fit your persona!

I got this gorgeous mint green skater skirt from Tobi, which is an online shopping site. It is definitely one of my best-loved places to find clothing and shoes. This particular skirt is even more flattering than I thought it would be when I ordered it. I know that sometimes people can be worried about shopping online because you can’t try before you buy, but don’t be! Once you find your size, stick with pieces that catch your eye and fit your style and you really cannot go wrong.

Back to the beloved skater skirt… Here are some of the ways that I like to style mine.

 

Casual Dressy- Simple Gray tank (from Asos), tucked in with a pair of flats (Shoedazzle) with a little “something extra”, mine have gold spikes on the top. I think this adds some contrast to the simplicity up top. Accessorize with a few gold pieces and a statement bag. This whole outfit costs around $115 normally, less if you can find sales on the sites listed! They always have great ones on these online shopping sites.

 

Casual- Chambray shirt (Nine West find from TJ maxx), with a pair of booties. A comfortable and fun twist bringing fall and winter pieces into spring and summer.

Fancy- Black Sweater Tank (Asos), long statement necklace , floral statement platform pumps (Macys) to finish it off. I would also add in this girly, sequin clutch for a fun going-out outfit!
