How to Style a Graphic Tee

FABB Blogger Collaboration

Happy Friday Peeps!! I am so excited to bring you all a blogger collaboration with a few of the fabulous ladies I met at this year’s Lucky FABB Conference! I love the idea of collaborating with other fashion bloggers because it allows me to bring you all a different perspective on style and inspiration. Plus, I get to introduce you to some pretty sweet and stylish ladies!

Our first collaboration style assignment was “How to Style A Graphic Tee”!  Below are a few tips directly from the fabulous ladies you see above and don’t forget to click on the tips below to check out the breakdowns of all the other great graphic tee looks featured in this post:

Meagan of Meagan’s Moda suggests: “To add polish to a casual tee topped with denim, pair it with bold jewelry, a slim pencil skirt and strappy heels.”  

Mega of Dress Up on a Cloudy Day suggests: “For an easy way to dress up a graphic tee, pair it with a bold pencil skirt: try a midi for an on trend look.”

Thea of Ever so Thea suggests: “Look through your parents’ old clothes! I’ve found a couple staple pieces that I’m not even sure they noticed I stole.”

Kayleigh of Kayleigh’s Kloset suggests: “Style it with overalls for an edgier look.”

Laura of Have Need Want suggests: “You can dress up an otherwise casual outfit with heels and jewelry, and wearing a monochromatic outfit emphasizes the graphic tee.”

As for myself, I suggest: “Pairing your graphic tee with a feminine, flowy skirt (mini, midi or maxi), great heels and a statement necklace for a look that’s effortlessly chic and translates well from day to evening.”

Sweater Weather

Although I consider myself an enemy of the cold, I have to admit I have been thoroughly enjoying this recent Miami “Sweater Weather”.  I just LOVE this cozy, fringe, knitted sweater I got from H&M back in August of 2013!  The fringe detail adds a fun twist to an otherwise “granny” type sweater.  In an effort to further steer clear of any type of “granny” comparison, I added a bit more funk by pairing it with some funky, chunky leopard print pumps!  VOILA! Comfy yet funky.  WIN in my fashion book!

By the way, just as I anticipated (here) and (here), FRINGE is expected to be HUGE for Spring 2014 Fashion!  So go ahead- embrace your inner Pocahontas and have fun with FRINGE in 2014!

P.S. I am currently working on a post that will feature my top rated trends for 2014, including FRINGE so stay tuned and thank you for stopping by!

Toodles!

Black, White and Spunk

Happy Friday darlings!!

We all know the good ole’ black and white combo is a classic and timeless look, but once in a while you gotta throw in a little spunk!   I’m pretty sure you’ve all figured out by now that one of my favorite methods of adding some spunk to an ensemble is the use of leopard print!  Not only is leopard print stylish and eye-catching, but for me, wearing leopard print comes along with an added boost of confidence (and I know I can’t be the only one).

If you read my blog then you know that I have been salivating over this Kate Spade 2 Park Avenue Beau Bag in Leopard for quite some time now and somehow the planets aligned, the moon and the stars came together and made it happen for me (and by planets, moons and stars I mean sales, added discounts and gift certificates)!  The leopard print version is virtually sold out just about everywhere, but it is still available in a variety of other colors and sizes (here). 

Oh my Beau, how I love thee!! Expect to see a lot more of my Beau here on Sun Fun Fashion!

I hope you all have a magical weekend!  Thank you for stopping by!
