Summer 2 Fall

Hey Ya’ll…

It’s the end of summer. I know for some of us the weather is still very warm. That said, we can add pieces to summer styles to take them into Fall.

For example – Hooded sweatshirts. My new favorite!

Long or cropped in length it all works.

This lightweight navy hoodie from Old Navy  works well when the temps just begin to go down.

(on sale for $7.99)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Nordstrom)

 

So many different ways to wear one.  Layered over a shirt like this one I saw in a Nordstrom ad.

My Version:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Hoodie from Mango $39.00)

(White button-down shirt)

This tunic length hoodie can be worn  by itself or over something.

A younger me would have worn this!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

(H&M)

 

 

 

 

But now I would pick one of these options.

  • Leggings

  • Skinny jeans

  • Skirt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Hoodie – H&M $24.99)

Or even layered under a denim jacket for cooler temperature times when you still don’t yet need a coat.

There are so many options to try.

Go see what you can come up with.

I would love to hear your ideas.

UNTIL NEXT TIME

Happy Shopping!

 

Thoughts and Prayers for Houston TX.

As most of my readers know this blog is from the Houston area.

With that being said there will be no post for August in respect for the many people who are living through the flooding  from Hurricane Harvey which is devastating.

I don’t believe talking about fashion for fun is the right thing to do right now.

So, all my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Texas

( which is where Primed2style is based)

May everyone be OK and come through this safely.

Add Accessories

Hello Fashionistas,

I hope your summer is going well.

We have covered lots of different trends & styles but briefly touched on accessory wear.

So let’s do that.

Corset belts

Super big this summer.

I purchased this one at a shop in Rice Village.  I love going to Graceanna’s  for trendy new styles.

They usually have the items at a lower price; which is good because styles tend to go out relatively soon.

I picked this one up for $19.99

The belt cinches you in to give a defined waist.

It’s definitely slimming.

Try it with:

 Short summer dress

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add a hat

OR:

a Midi or Maxi dress.

Throw on a denim jacket.

You could wear any of these with sneakers, sandals, mules, or heels.

So many choices.

Now if you prefer you can find alternatives to a belt.

Say a corset top similar to this one @ H&M.

Or even a skirt also from H&M!

 

Super affordable and so so cute!

Tassels

Jewelry with tassels are taking stage.

 Colorful and fun you see them everywhere.

I love these new black ones that were a gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are also some I found at H&M !!

 I also saw some really bright color earrings at

Elaine Turner.

Wrap up May

KIMONOS

It’s May and time for some warm weather fun!

I am loving kimonos.  They’re fun and colorful.

They come in different lengths.

And, they cover any parts you want to hide.

I just came back from Europe and purchased this particular one in Spain.

However, you can find them most any place, wherever you live.

 (Sole Society)

I picked this one up at Charming Charlie.

 

 

It was only $30. They had many to chose from.

Loved the pinks and lilacs!! Add a white tee and a cool hat. Voila!!

And in celebrating the Memorial Day Weekend how about this one:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Target $19.99)

Have some fun and see what you can come up with.

Until Next Time

April Is here!!

It’s finally Spring!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love this time of year!  Flowers are blooming and no more snow!!!

In eyeing trends for Spring, I’m exited that the off-shoulder & statement sleeve is staying.

Last month I featured that, if you recall. What I want to point out additionally,

is that  the pinstripe/poplin shirt sometimes commonly referred to menswear,

is huge.

Note the buttons down one sleeve very chic. This top shows some shoulder but not a lot.

 

 

 I picked up this shirt at Target from the

“Who What Wear” collection. It was less than $30. Wow, what a deal!!

Note the detail on the sleeve.

So you can’t wrong with a cotton or poplin striped shirt.

  • Dress it up

  • Wear with jeans

  • Or even shorts!

    **Until Next time

    HAPPY SHOPPING!!

March On!

Happy March!

For some of us “Spring has Sprung.” It’s nice and warm here but,

I know some of you are still in winter mode.

So that being said, what’s fun for springtime fashion?

Over the past year the trend has been off-shoulder styles. Whether it’s a top or dress.

I really like this but, I am hesitant to wear this ( you know age and all!).  The good part is throughout the winter time it also included sweaters.

I was please to see this trend is still in for 2017.

Here are some examples I found surfing the fashion sites:

 This one is a little different

( Anthropology)

I really love that there are options, so if you don’t want the complete bare shoulder look, you have options.

Remember at this age instead of short or low-cut clothing, we can still be sexy baring a shoulder or two!

Until Next Time

Happy Shopping!

 

 

 

New Age Denim

It’s February, still winter for some but here it’s mild.

Denim has always been timeless.  The styles just evolve over the years.  This year we are seeing a lot of the distressed look.

 Whether it is torn  along the legs or just an uneven jagged-style hem.

I just purchased this pair from Old Navy. They were originally $49.99 but were on sale for $35.

I thought they were super cute, esp. the darker wash.

Only the bottom hem is unfinished.

I paired it with a lightweight over-size type blazer which is also big this spring!

Here are a few others for example:

(These I found in Glamour magazine)

 You can see there are different styles to choose from.

 

Whether you layer up or just throw on a light jacket of some sort, it works.

Until next time

Happy Shopping!
