outfit: whimsical pastels

April 15, 2014

pastels // the average girl's guide Do you have pieces in your wardrobe that when you first saw them in the store you were totally iffy, or maybe your friend forced it on you? When I saw this floaty blouse, I couldn’t decide. The color is pretty, but I never grab for it, and I’ve been loving these cool open details on blouses, but as a shorter gal (I’m 5’3), the longer tunic-style left me hesitant. Yet, turns out the semi-sheer, soft panel with the side panel are cool yet flattering.

I used to be really restrictive when it came to the fitting room; why try it on if I didn’t think it would work? But now, it’s the opposite: encouraging you to take in there with you a few pieces out of your comfort zone. Costs you nothing and maybe one time you’ll land on something pretty special. It’s especially fun at affordable spots because a fab find can lead you to discovering a new style or hue without the worry of wasting big money.

Truckstop Committee
All my South Florida friends! Your official social season might be wrapping up, but make sure it’s not before attending this week’s two awesome events. Excited to be involved in both — I mean who says no to food trucks especially when it can help a friend, and to a fashionable girls night out!

Mark your calendar for the following…hope to see TAGG readers there; be sure to say hi!

TRUCKSTOP! // Wednesday, April 16 from 6-9 pm
100 percent of the proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society; that’s the committee in the above photo
Sample bites from food trucks, sip on creative cocktails, taste cold pressed juices and more! This event directly supports one of my best and most talented friends, Aime Dunstan, who owns it! Events & Media, is an amazing mom, and…. recent Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor. Girl didn’t even skip a beat, despite weekly chemo treatments. She’s a rockstar, and knows how to throw a party (it is her job!); this food truck bash is going to be goooood.


Next up…

I often gravitate toward solids, or if I move toward a pattern it’s typically stripes. A bold print is not naturally this average gal’s thing even though I love when others wear it. With the temperatures starting to heat up around the country, and with music festivals on the horizon, thought it would be fun to share how to wear these fun, vibrant prints in rich colors and fun textures (i.e. tassels and fringe!).  Carefree, worldly and casual in a totally cool way.

Check out two ways to style the look, whether you want to wear it, or just play around with accessories.

latest loves, part 1

April 8, 2014

A while back I used to share my latest acquisitions but stopped doing so for a variety of reasons. Yet, when thinking about TAGG as a place to learn about a little bit of everything, I realize what do girls often talk about? New finds, recent purchases and great deals! At least I do with my friends. So every so often, instead of sharing what I’m coveting — because it’s no fun wishing for things I possibly can’t afford! — I’ll share recent items I’ve purchased and loved. Anything, style, food, office, you name it. Even for baby, except for the insane amounts of diapers and formula. No fun there. Feel free to ask questions in the comments section if I don’t address any questions you might have.
