MB Fashion Week Madrid: Devota & Lomba

I rushed back from MQ Vienna Fashion Week just in time to catch Day 2 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid.  Devota & Lomba did not did not disappoint.  I loved the use of patterned textures.  The shorts were adorable and she literally used my three favorite spring colors to wear: white, a pale yellow-green, and evergreen.  My absolute favorite look was an outfit with white shorts and a long sleeved white shirt, but the front had two yellow panels, it was so original and cute, I wanted it!

My favorite!

Fun Summer Look: Patterned Shorts

Try a pair of patterned shorts this summer!

Tips:  Unless you are feeling very daring, a general tip is to wear a basic shirt with the shorts, like a white, black or other solid color.  For shoes, try some wedges or heels for a night look, and flats or gladiator sandals for a day look.

Here are some ideas below:

Here are a pair from Mango-you know me-love that leopard!

Try either of these from Zara (note-vertical stripes make you look thinner!)

Ask Lori: How do I Look Fabulous on the Beach?

Summer is coming!  I can´t wait and in anticipation, I pulled together some fun fabulous looks for my trip to the Canary Islands, since the weather was summery and beautiful there.

The key to beach dressing and looking fabulous is floaty, fun, bright, patterned and of course, keeping it casual.  Floaty dresses, scarves, yellows, pinks, and greens, and even denim can work when done the right way.

Tips: Try to put fun combos together.  Summer is all about that carefree attitude, so don´t take anything too seriously.  Make sure not to look too coiffed or overdone.  Dress up a basic outfit with chunky sunglasses, a bangle, or a hat.  For hair, beachy waves or a messy braid are great.  Blowout: not neccessary!

I hope you enjoy the pics of my friends and I and I hope they provide some inspiration for your summer looks on how to look fabulous on the beach!

Printed Shorts

One trend I am loving for this summer is printed shorts.  Any kind of pattern will do, but you must be careful not to get too crazy with it, because it can make you look bigger or also look like pajamas in some cases.

I found the perfect pair of silky patterned shorts at Lefties. Although they are silk, they don´t remind me of pajamas because the pattern is distinctly un-pajama like.

What do you think? Perfect with abrightly colored casual tank and heels, no?


Summer Trend: Crochet or Lace Shorts

A new summer trend I am loving is the crochet or lace shorts look.  I bought a pair of black ones at H&M, which I found an image of online (from blog Ivanna´s Closet).  I totally agree with Ivanna-crochet shorts might possibly be my favorite summer garment this year!

Howeer, the H&M ones do run a bit short, so if you want something a bit longer, you could try Zara, which has a couple pairs of slighty longer ones.

My only tip when wearing crochet or lace shorts is to be careful with what you pair them with…SOMETIMES, depending on the garment, the white ones especially, tend to look a bit like pajamas.  So make sure to pair them with something tailored and shoes other than flip flops so it doens´t look as if you´ve just rolled out of bed!
