Street Style: Flower Headbands

Today is the beginning of a new segment on ATNC! It's called Street Style! It's a segment where I feature people who I come across while out on the streets, {while I'm running errands, shopping, etc.} When I see someone whose style catches my eyes, I introduce myself and ask to snap a picture of them, and then I'll feature them on this segment! I'm usually on the lookout for someone who has an awesome outfit pulled together, or a particularly amazing pair of shoes on, or a to-die-for accessory! The thing I love about this segment is that it will feature real people, not celebrities or models in magazines. This segment will be filled with actual people I come across in my day to day life, who just truly love fashion and find ways to express themselves by what they choose to wear each and everyday.


Aren't these flower headbands the cutest?! I want one now!

A couple weeks ago my Mom and Aunt were having lunch and this lovely lady, Rebecca, was their waitress! My Mom and Aunt snapped the first two pictures above and then gave me this Street Style segment idea! {Thanks guys!:}

Rebecca got the peach colored headband at PaylessI honestly didn't even know Payless sold accessories! I also found this headband from Payless, which I love!

The multi-colored flower headband is from Claire'sIt's the perfect place to go if you want to go bold, look like a goddess, or go for a simpler look. You can't go wrong with these adorable headwraps!

Floral headwraps are the perfect accessory for this spring season!

Thanks Rebecca, for sharing your cute look!

Be a Street Style Helper! If you're out and about one day and see someone with an incredible outfit on, a great necklace, or drop dead gorgeous shoes, snap a picture, and email it to me! I'd love to feature fashionistas from all over the country - or world!

Pinspiration: Neons & Neutrals

Maybe I'm super late on this {and I probably am}, but all of a sudden I've been noticing a new trend emerging, neon & neutrals. I've never been a neon fan. I always thought the colors were obnoxiously bright. {TBH, I just really didn't want to look like a giant highlighter}

But ever since my step mom, Tracy, bought me the top below, I've been opened up to a whole new way on how to work with neons.
 Pairing neon & neutral colors together, balances out the bright hues and makes it a more subtle {but still bold!} look.

I am lovvinngg the outfits people are putting together, like the neon statement necklace in picture #2! pairing that bright of a necklace with neutrals like grey, white and tan is genius.
Oh, and don't even get me started on the dress in picture #3, I'm obsessed, enough said.

This the perfect look for transitioning from winter to spring. You can still wear your winter colors {grey, black, white, etc.} but incorporate spring by adding neon accent pieces to your outfit.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10

Forever 21 has some fantastic neon statement necklaces this season! I would of bought them all if I could. {#3 is on my must-have list!} Which is your favorite?

I have a thing for books, especially ones about fashion, accessories, makeup, Jesus, D.I.Y's, and self help books.

  3. OneGood Deed a Day: This book gives you a good deed task for you to fulfill each day. It’s truly rewarding every time you complete one of the tasks.
  4. Holy Bible: It’s always good to devote a little time to Jesus each day.
  5. The Green Book: Tells you all the ways you can help the environment. We could all be a little nicer to our planet.

  13. Lauren Conrad: Beauty: After falling in love with LC’s Style book, I naturally got her  following book about beauty. It was worth every penny. She shares on how to  create a natural look, a party look, and every look in between.

Pinspiration: Palazzo Pants

HEAR YE HEAR YE! I am starting a new segment where I will share my favorite Pinterest Pins of the week, particularly the ones that inspire me! Whether I'm inspired to create a new makeup look, or wear funky patterns together, I will share all my pinspirations in this new segment!

one // two // three // four // five // six

For my very first Pinspiration post I wanted to share a type of pants that I have been obsessed with ever since I got my first pair  - Palazzo Pants! They are loose light weight pants that are a fun statement piece! I love them because they feel like pajama pants but look fancy and sophisticated! I think it's best to wear them with a solid colored top so that you don't have a super busy look going on. As far as shoes go you can wear just about anything with them! 
Wedges, heels, flats, or sandals. It's your choice!

I'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts on the new Pinspiration segment, comment below!
