Stagecoach styling

TWR Stagecoach styling spring 2016

Stagecoach kicks off today in California.  Every year a group of my girlfriends would go to Stagecoach, cowboy boots and all, for a weekend of country music and tailgating.  We may not be in attendance this year, but I still wanted to channel my country roots for an everyday look.  These pieces have a touch of western styling with the subtle print, fringe embellishments and neutral palette.  I also love the all-American, red, white and blue appeal of this look.  Music festival looks should be pieces that fit your style for the weekend and will transition well into other, every day outfits.

What are your favorite western-inspired pieces?

Spring rain

TWR Spring Rain 2016-4

What’s up with the rain?!  I’ve been living in DC for over 2 years and I still have yet to understand the spring/summer rain.  Today, it’s a drizzly-kind-of-day and I’m dying to run around in sundresses and sandals.  To embrace my wishes and deal with the weather, I’ve chosen to pair a sundress over a pair of skinny jeans, roll them up and throw on some pumps.  To liven up my look and outside, color was a must.  I really like how this electric emerald in my dress pops so vividly with my pink lips, bracelet and heels.  Note to everyone: when the weather doesn’t cooperate, your outfit doesn’t have to be let down too.

What’s your rainy spring day style?

His summer shoe

TWR his summer line up Spring 2016

The lineup is in!  I’m excited to share some of my favorite menswear shoes for summer.  First and foremost, a summer sneaker is a must.  This can be perforated, sporty or even just a simple canvas – it’s all in the fabric choice.  Next is the loafer and/or boat shoe.  The boat shoe lends to more of a conservative, classic style, while the loafer has widely been worn more as a more fashion-forward slip on.  Lastly, I love this woven-leather oxford.  It’s sporty, sophisticated and perfect for a daily transition from office to happy hour.  It’s about time to lace up and take your new kicks out for a stroll.

The Zara suit

TWR The Zara Suit Spring 2016

Suit me up!  Jumpsuits are back for spring in an assortment of silhouettes.  Forget the width or length of the pant – this season is all about the waistline.  Key waistlines to test out with your figure are: high rise, drop-waist and no waistline-waistline.  My personal favorite is the drop-waistband.  I really like the concept of elongating the torso, especially in a pants jumpsuit.  Outside of the waistline trend you’ll see a good mix of pant leg styles, colors and hemline heights.  I all for a drop-waist, relaxed fit jumpsuit — it’s nothing but casual, sophisticated and cool.

Carolina Herrera

TWR Carolina Herrera Bridal Spring 2017 2

I do, I do!  Like every little girl who dreams of her Cinderella-story-wedding, I still get giddy every bridal season.  Carolina Herrera‘s 2017 Spring Bridal collection has me more than giddy with its intricate attention to detail.  Each look had a dimension that went beyond a beautiful satin, tulle or lace fabric.  Exposed backs, fabric florets and sheer fabrics conveyed an abundance of romance in each look.  Herrera used a mixture of silhouettes – everything from a-line skirts to mermaid and peplum shapes.  Thanks for another beautiful collection Mrs. Herrera.  The key to nailing down your bridal look is finding a fit that compliments your figure and finding the finishing touches that make it “you.”  Sign me up for a floret embellished bodice, please!

Pool time please

TWR Pool time please Spring 2016

Who’s ready for the pool?  Me.  I think the warm-ish weather is here to stay, at least for now.  I’ve always found it insanely odd that the pools in DC are only open Memorial through Labor Day weekends – so the waiting game is on.  With just a few weeks until the pool “opens”, I’m excited to get my poolside looks ready.  Usually, I mix-and-match my bikinis pieces but I’m loving the soft, muted lavender of this bikini.  For a cover up, go for a bold, playful print.  I’ve been searching for some good summer accessories.  These sandals are simply perfect.  I like a sandal that can take me anywhere with any outfit.  Lastly and most importantly, are your sunglasses.  I like that these have good coverage and a bold colored lens.  They’ll provide eye protection while styling up your outfit. Just 39 days left until the pools open!
