Pretty Item of the Day

Today's item comes to us directly form the overpriced Anthropologie; however, despite their ridiculously priced items, I still have an affinity for their clothing. This summertime skirt is so fresh, clean, and beautiful. It's got all the girl colors you can ask for, but with its structured design, it still has a bit of an edge. And if you dare, this is the perfect skirt to mix prints with! I personally picture this with a nice white button down and a cute pair of flat sandals or wedges. But that's just me. In the meantime, good luck on getting that mortgage to purchase this skirt.

Modest Hollywood

We can just call this 'Modest Hollywood - Amazing Edition'. Aside from the White House Correspondents' Dinner-- which had a red carpet of who's who in Hollywood. Seriously it was like the Oscars, or something-- there were some serious stunners that made my jaw drop in an utterly fabulous way. Camilla Belle especially wowed with three unbelievably gorgeous spring frocks! As for the WHCD, Charlize, Kate H., Kerry, Dakota, and  Kate U. all showed their classy sides, and I positively adore Rashida Jones' outfit! PS Odette Anable's gown blows my mind. Well done ladies of Hollywood-- I'm shepping.

Pretty Item of the Day

K, so I know I posted a maxi skirt this color a little while back, but this one from ASOS is sooooo purdy (read: pretty). When I watch the runway video on the site, it just makes me want to put the skirt on and never take it off. Bonus: this bright blue skirt also comes in a cream color, which would be perfect for summer! Plus, BLUE and WHITE skirts in honor of Israel Independence Day! Happy Birthday Israel!!

Neutral Item of the Day

 Oh my, what a pretty dress! It's loose fitting, but still structured enough to show off the parts of your body that you want to enhance! It's certainly modest, and it is the perfect color for anyone and everyone. If you're worried about feeling washed out in this though, try livening up the totally bare color with some brights, like a coral colored belt and some green shoes. Add black for a more dramatic effect, or embrace my "must" of the moment, which is pastel--this neutral base is so perfect for a pastel color palette!

Trendy Item of the Day

I absolutely adore prints that make it easy to mix and match, and this skirt from J. Crew is absolutely perfect for just that. The print is exciting but subtle, and the colors are so neutral and vibrant at the same time, that it will be really  great when mixing prints. I myself love mixing prints that don't normally go together--it really gives they eye a twist it doesn't expect. And if mixing prints is not your thing, this skirt is loud enough to pair with just solids as well, something that will look especially good in the Fall with a pair of tights. Win/win!

Polka Dot Item of the Day

Pleated skirts. We frummies are notorious for these bad boys, and ones that extra adorable and cute are no exception. This one from ASOS is is so versatile and the color is perfectly neutral; it's great for any season, depending on the top you pair it with, as well as shoes and accessories. It's hard to find a nice, soft, flowy knee-length skirt nowadays, so when an opportunity like this comes along, don't pass it up!

Modest Hollywood

Va va voom! So much red in Hollywood this week, and I can't say I hate it! These famous ladies are making their Hollywood rounds in some truly classy and modest outfits. Behold, proof that less is more! There is certainly something to be said about the allure of covering up your body, and the proof is in the pudding with these ladies. My favorites this week are Emily Blunt-- that red lace dress blows my mind-- and I adore Elizabeth Banks and Olivia Wilde as well. Spring is the time to let loose and have fun, and these ladies embraced that wholeheartedly!
