ZAC by Zac Posen Spring 2018 Collection Proves His Secondary Line Is Just As Chic As The Original

If you are a fashion lover then you may already know who Zac Posen is. Not only did he make a huge splash on the fashion scene with his iconic collections but his designs have also graced the backs of Hollywood trendsetters (Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Kate Winslet, and Claire Danes) and fashion it-girls such as Naomi Campbell and Stella Schnabel. He is also well known for being one of the judges on the fashion reality show Project Runway for several seasons. 
Since the success of his first eponymous line, he has launched a secondary line ZAC by Zac Posen which I am showcasing today. I was loving the offerings he designed for his SS/2018 collection. Sometimes with secondary lines, I feel like a designer usually slacks off by offering up lackluster clothing or throwaways that are way too derivative of what they offered in their main collection. He did not fall into this trap instead he delivered pieces that are wearable, chic, and flattering on a variety of different …

The Colors Of Summer

" Summer, summer, summertime ... ", man I love that song by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (Will Smith for the younguns) during this time of the year when the sun is shining and the temperature is rising. Summer is the only season of the year that I truly love. I especially love seeing everyone shedding their neutrals and rocking bright and colorful clothing. I tend to wear bright colors all year round but for some reason when it starts to get really warm outside people shake off their inhibitions and start wearing vibrant hues that make me smile. 

Today's outfit of the day perfectly captures what I am talking about. I was able to fit in a quite a few colors by showcasing a maxi dress that featured a color block design. Since it is hot where I live I made sure to include some sun protection with a cute straw hat, sunnies, and sandals. I kept the makeup light and subtle with a neutral pink lip gloss and an ombre blush.

The Prettiest Cami Tops For Summer

When I think of a cami top what usually comes to mind is pajamas or undergarments. I generally do not think of camisoles aka camis when I am pondering what is currently fashionable because it has always seemed like such a basic item. The thought of them would bore me to tears and I always considered them an afterthought. Lately, though, I have noticed a lot of pretty cami tops in the stores that go beyond your basic neutrals. These pretty little tops are not meant to be hidden under a sweater or jacket but they are designed to shine on their own.

Makeup Rules Are Meant To Be Broken

The one thing I firmly believe is that makeup rules are meant to be broken. The rules do serve a purpose but I see them more as flexible guidelines than steadfast rules. Take, for instance, today's makeup look that I am rocking. Beauty mavens will tell you that you should never pair a bold eye with a bold lip. Why? For some it may be too much for me it is not, as long as everything else is a blank canvas. As you can see I kept the blush neutral and to a bare minimum, also the rest of my face is matte and there is not a hint of shimmer or sparkle which makes a bold lip and eye easier to rock.

The New Summer Jumpsuits Are Here! Which One Will You Choose?

We have officially entered into jumpsuit season after a non-existent spring. If you live in the Midwest states in the USA then you know exactly what I mean. We jumped from winter to scorching heat with a week of mild weather in between, but I will not complain, at least it is not snowing. Which means I can start pulling out and reassessing my summer wardrobe and right now I am determined to add a new jumpsuit to my essentials this season. There are so many to choose from and I am excited to present some of my faves for you today. If you are like me this is one item that will come in handy while we are basking in the heat on a glorious summer day.
