The Romper at Last: Various Iterations

Okay, here’s the romper in a bunch of variations. Which is the best? Or are they all terrible???

Picture 1. Romper, black Franco Sarto sandals<, statement necklace:

I like it this way, but not sure about the necklace.

Yes or No: ‘Rompers’

Remember when I wrote about jumpsuits? Well…

I shopped with my sister-in-law a few days ago. We went to the store where I bought my favorite black lace shorts, Tula (that’s the name of the store, not the name of my shorts;I don’t name my clothes…). Carmen got a pair of Current and Elliott jeans — my brother and I talked her into buying a really good pair and they looked awesome on her — and a cute black tunic. Anyway, I tried on a bunch of stuff, including what I thought was called a jumpsuit but is apparently called a romper these days.

Evolution of an Outfit

Yes, it’s been nearly two weeks since the last time I wrote anything. I blame it on my children. Every time I take a picture of an outfit, they give me a hard time, as in, “mom, you take more selfies than my friends and I do.” And, since summer vacation started a couple of weeks ago, they’re always home.

Actually, Michael has offered to take my pictures for me. He says I need to spice up my fashion pictures and make them more interesting. So he took this one:

He thought it would be more interesting from an angle. (Free People shirt, Target shoes.)

5 Fashion Tips from Nordstrom Liz! (Plus One Bonus)

I was so excited when Jennifer asked me to do a blog post for her with five fashion tips for Spring. I met Jennifer in January, and I have LOVED seeing her style transform from jeans and a t-shirt to a polished boho chic mom.

Before I launch into my five fashion tips, Jennifer asked me to write a short bio about myself. A lot of people ask me how I became a Personal Stylist, and everyone assumes that I must have studied fashion or had some glamorous job that landed me to my current position. But the truth is that I stumbled into this job. After graduating with my degree in Spanish Linguistics and Spanish Literature from CU, I quickly found out that the jobs I was qualified for sounded monotonous and boring, and I wanted more. I have always believed that if I have to devote 40 hours of my life every week to something, I HAVE to be happy doing it.

Bubble Skirt on Middleaged Butt?

Tried to give this outfit a little more flair and dimension by adding the denim vest, but I think it might have looked better without it… My Trouvé leather jacketwould have looked great with it but it was a little too warm.

Sassy Summer Shoes and Lots of Pictures

I forgot that I meant to post some pics of shoes that might help spice up a summer wardrobe. Not that any of YOUR summer wardrobes need spicing, but mine do.

Anyway, my sister/bestie sent me a picture of her “sassy” pink shoes, which she got ten years ago (or so). Now that she (finally) has a job again, she has to get out of her crossfit exercise clothes and dress like a grownup again, and I can tell she’s doing a good job just from this picture of her lower half. And look at those legs! Sheesh…

Would You Wear These in Summer?

Chatted with a friend yesterday about wearing boots in summer… Is it appropriate? Seems a lot of people are wearing those short booties with skirts or shorts, or those sandals that are tall and are sort of a boot hybrid. But what about higher boots?

Jumpsuits: Yes or No?

It’s been a week or more since my last post, sorry. Between my son’s graduation from elementary school excitement, last week of school activities, and my mother’s visit, things have been crazy, to say the least.

Had fun with Mom, a very stylish woman herself. She has two new jumpsuits that were beautiful. I was not happy to hear that jumpsuits were back in style, but after seeing mom’s, I like them… Just maybe not on me.
