POW POW! Comic Book Style

Sometimes wacky trends come into style that you couldn't be more grateful for. Of course I'd seen the adorable comic inspired fashions featuring my fav Batman floating around on Etsy, but I hadn't seen anything wearable in the mainstream. In the recent months, comic inspired clothing has been hitting the racks. I find the eye catching crop at Topshop, I felt the short crop offered the perfect amount of comic pattern. Just a little peak of such a loud print I really feel goes a long way. No way was I wearing a belly baring crop top, so I paired my crop top with a black long sleeve tee and high waisted body con to give the illusion I was wearing a dress. Go put a little POW in your wardrobe!

Pretty Pastels on Pretty Girls

I've been hearing for months light pink and mint are the hottest colors for spring. These pretty palette can be seen spread across the windows of any fast fashion company. Just to point out how hot this light hued color palette is, this post features to pretty ladies in pastel! Jen is representing mint not only with her colored denim but also with her eye-catching necklace. This eBay find features both mint and salmon which is pretty close to blush pink! Once again Jen accents her pastels with blue and tan, a combination I probably never would have thought of. Girl, doesn't have a stitch of black on her! Amazing to me at least! She keeps it light and pretty all the way down to her complimentary manicure.

I can be seen slowly trying to crawl out of my black bag by wearing a light tan and salmon sweater with a white scarf that has salmon accents! You can believe I almost didn't buy this sweater because it wasn't black and white. However nothing is more comfy and easy to wear then an baggy, drapey sweater, the aztec print saves it from being to "mom" if you know what I mean!

Poppin' In Peplum

Every once in a while I dream up pieces of clothing that I swore I've seen for sale before, so when I want to buy them I am positive they exist. When I began my hunt weeks ago for black and white pieces I had a vision of a black and white striped peplum top, that eventually transformed into a striped peplum dress. Destiny called and I stumbled upon this beauty at Target one day during lunch. The only way I was squeezing into a form fitting body con silhouette would be with some belly hiding from a peplum. I choose to keep everything black and white for this outfit, but it was hard to resist throwing in a good pop of color.

Go Green or Go Home: St. Patrick's Day Style

St. Patricks Day: Color Block

St. Patricks Day: Color Block by betsy-step featuring an envelope clutch

When it comes to drinking holidays you have two choices if you're going out to party. Classy or Trashy. It's not that hard to figure out the trashy uniform of booty shorts and green knee high socks, the real challenge is looking cute on St. Pat's with your clothes on. Check my St. Patrick's Day inspiration boards for a more sophisticated take on the holiday! Drink up!

Cool as Cara: Aztec Print with a Leather Vest

Ah, the vest. Many of us own them but how often do we wear them? I've found myself rocking my fur vest frequently this winter, probably due to its bulk, it feels like a jacket. However when it comes to leather vest and denim vest, what the hell do you do with it? What makes you say, you know what this top needs over it..a vest! Weeks ago I saw the amazing photo of Cara Delevingne wearing a closed denim vest on the Just Cavalli SS 2013 runway, and knew I had to do that. This morning when I was once again feeling too lazy to put together an outfit and reached for a cozy flannel shirt, I thought , "No, you can't wear just a flannel shirt to work like a bum." That is when I saw my old faux leather studded vest hanging in the closet. Unfortunately I couldn't pull of Cara's cool closed vest look because, let me be honest, this vest is too small and can't close. Maybe one day I'll be that cool.
