BOWS ON MY TOES

It has been quite the weekend I must say. On Friday, I received an email that my light layering look was selected as a Vanity Fair Editor's Pick! I could not be more thrilled or honored to even be recognized by such influential individuals in the fashion world. Not only that, but I shot my 4th of July look this weekend which I can't wait to share. I am one of those people that go all out for 90% of the holidays, so themed shoots are even more fun for me!


Summer whites have been an increasingly large trend this season as it looks classy and also keeps you cool in the high temperatures. Then add frills to it and you have the perfect combination of girly, chic, and classic. I was told when wearing this outfit that it looked very "breakfast at Tiffany's inspired" and I can't say I totally disagree. Audrey Hepburn is an icon in her own right and I think it is safe to say every girl hopes to have just a little of the grace she posses in that movie.


Well, cheers to a four day work week and check back for my special Fourth of July look later this week! Also, what are your thoughts on the summer whites trend?

LIGHT LAYERING

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Happy Thursday everyone! I know I have taken a brief hiatus from the bloggosphere, but work has been insanely busy which I can't complain about too much. Being a commercial photography producer can be challenging at times but the reward outweighs those challenges almost every time. I work on the Birch Lane account and if you haven't checked out their website (in which my company does all the photography) I highly recommend you do so. They have a similar vibe to Pottery Barn in which you can find everything from furniture, home decor, and even bath ware. Check it out.

Now moving onto this outfit post. As temperatures are increasing and the official start of summer approaches, I wanted to post about how to layer with light weight fabrics in the summer. While the jacket may be a LITTLE hot on some days, it is nice to have for the cooler evenings and add a little more "flare" to your outfit. White is the color of the summer so these white linen wide legged pants are perfect for just that. They are lightweight, comfortable, and don't cling to your body to add extra heat. Same with this summer scarf I picked up from Target clearance not too long ago. You can opt for a different shoe choice (such as sandals) but I just loved these UrbanOG sling back mules so much I had to include them into the outfit. 

Have fun with your summer layering and remember, light weight fabrics (linen, cotton, silk, lace) are key!

FOR THE LOVE OF KAMINO- PART 2

Friday, June 13, 2014

Part 2 of my kamino dress series is a little different in that this one is very neutral in color while the other was extremely loud. However, I wanted to show that adding a lightweight printed scarf, such as this one from David & Young, can brighten up the outfit instantly. 

As I expressed in part 1, these dresses are so easy and feminine while also giving you full comfort all around. If you don't own one yet I strongly suggest you add one to your wardrobe. I know the wide armed sleeves can be a little intimidating to some, but I promise once you put one on you will be singing a different tune my friend.


On another note, it has been a little over a month since I launched Comfortably Young and I wanted to take this time to thank all those that have followed along. I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support, and it is extremely rewarding to hear I have inspired some of you through my posts. I hope to continue on that path and can't wait to see what awaits in the future. So again, thank you all and much love!




Dress: Francesca's (old; other kamino options I love 1,2,3,4,5)

FOR THE LOVE OF KAMINO - PART 1

Monday, June 9, 2014






















After a long day of shooting I had to stop at my favorite coffee shop/bakery downtown which coincidentally is named Camino Bakery. How appropriate right? Or corny? Either way they are a fabulous company that never disappoints. They even were sweet enough to personalize my cup of coffee with "CY" on it!

The weather has been pretty stellar the past couple of days entering into June. I am actually a cold weather kind of girl who loves to snowboard, layer, and snuggle by a nice warm fire. However, I forgot how nice it is to just throw on a dress and be good to go during the summer season. It gives me an excuse to wear fun vibrant dresses like this one I picked up form Nordstrom's savvy trends department. 

There are not enough good things I can say about kamino dresses and the way they make me feel every time I put one on. The first reason is because they are beyond comfortable which is a pretty big requirement when I shop for clothing. The second is the over sized flowy arms make me feel like I am floating when I walk. It brings me back to my childhood memories of playing dress up in my angel Halloween costume. I would just run around flapping my flowy angel winged arms all over the house! Kamino dresses are like my adult angel winged costume that is socially acceptable to wear in public.

Anyways, this is post one of my two part kamino dress series because I love them that much! Thank you for stopping by and happy Monday!

HI-LOW

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Hi-low dresses are a trend that started in Europe and America in late 2011. To no surprise, the full circle hem line spread like wildfire nationwide soon thereafter. It is a perfect and effortless style for both summer and spring, and I personally think it is still a great trend. Despite what some may think. 

To me, they are extremely versatile as you are able to wear it both day and night. The hem line gives these dresses a casual look in the front while also adding that extra amount of elegance from the "fishtail" in the back. This hi-low dress pictured above is one of my favorites because not only is the pattern lovely and abstract but has the double hemline (which is what drew me to it in the first place).


I am curious to hear your opinions on hi-low dresses. What do you think of this trend, yes or no?
