For Love and Lemons

For Love and Lemons One of my favorite California based clothing lines is For Love and Lemons. Derived from the sun-soaked “Lemonade Stand Days”, designers Gillian Rose Kern and Laura Hall are the creative minds behind this lifestyle brand.

Not only do they create beautiful lace and embroidered ready to wear, their vintage feeling lingerie will have you coming back for more. Each season the collection has just the right amount of sex appeal, making women feel as though they should be running free without a care in the world.

How to do Denim on Denim

There are no winter blues here when you can pull off the on trend denim on denim look. Something about the double-denim trend goes against everything we’ve been taught is correct about putting together an outfit. So while yes, you know denim on denim is having a moment right now, putting the look together can seem a bit intimidating.

Check out my tips and tricks below and a few of my favorite street style looks.

1. DO: Play with colors if you’re a total beginner. Start out by pairing different shades of denim together, like white jeans and a blue denim jacket, or black jeans and a chambray shirt.

2. DON’T: Wear denim accessories. Keep the jeans confined to your clothing.

3. DO: Use denim shades to flatter or hide body parts. As a general rule, lighter shades of denim draw attention to the body parts, while darker washes create a slimming effect.

4. DON’T: Wear a denim outfit that’s all the same weight or wash.You don’t want to look too “matchy-matchy”.

5. DO: Distress. Something about ripped jeans just lends itself well to the denim on denim look. So don’t be afraid to rip away.

6. DON’T: Look to Westerns for inspiration. Think of denim on denim, and images of cowboys likely come to mind, so that means staying away from accessories like cowboy boots, cowboy hats, bolo ties, and Western belts.

7. DO: Dress up your double denim. Don’t be afraid to elevate your outfit with luxe-looking items including statement heels or an amazing blazer.

Site I love – Shabby Apple

I always get excited when I come across a new line of clothing that is both unique and inspirational at the same time. Shabby Apple was co-founded in 2006 for women because they are beautiful, powerful, and all unique. I have had the fun opportunity to collaborate with this brand, and just as the story goes, their clothing evokes style and class of vintage and modern day pieces.

Their belief in the company had me at hello, and just as simply as it was to fall in love with this Field Goal Dress, the whole site has me wanting more.

There is a perfect mix of clothing designed to exude confidence in the modern day woman. Shabby Apple has set out to design vintage inspired clothing to make women feel confident. Not only are they 90% owned and operated by females, they connect worldwide by partnering with organizations that help to empower women.

As Suzigstyles grows, my readers know that I love to get glam for the night in an amazing maxi skirt or dress. As for the day, especially when I am watching sports, easy casual style is my go to. I could not have been more fond of this site with their mix of pieces that define my personal style.

I am getting ready to host a fun filled day of football as well as a wedding shower, and both the looks below are on the radar!
