Caption: Because I #love to be #creative!

If I didn’t have this full time #photography gig, I think I would get into #decor and #refinishing #furniture!

I had been staring at this not so pretty piece of furniture at a friend’s house for a very long time and since she had recently redecorated her living room, I offered to help her give it a #makeover. She let me have at it but not without sudden gasps of horror as I added new colors. LOL. BUT, in the end she agreed to let me have my way with it. She said “you’ll just do what you want anyway” which I heard as, “I trust you Danea, because you are #amazing, smart, #talented, beautiful, a good dancer and I’ll just sit here and listen to your #stunning singing voice while you work.” Or something like that? Pretty close, right @devonkenny?

The hints of color match her accent pieces. I’m surprised she let me add so much “#grunge”, but it looks beautiful in her room. Honestly, I think it would look even better with a stain on it before the clear coat but she said no. Haha

I could get lost in the the #relaxation that is distressing art… At least for me, #painting, #sanding, dry brush etc… My heart is happy creating and getting my hands dirty!

I want to know what love to do and find relaxing, even if it’s hard to find the time for? Tag Boudoir Coterie and show me!

I enjoy seeing what the current styles and trends are, not that I necessarily follow them. I’m very much a jeans and t-shirt girl, but today I’ve found a hot trend that I think I can pull off these upcoming warmer months.

Sneakers and a dress.

This ultra casual but still put together look screams comfort, but not wanting to wear your everyday jeans. There are so. many different ways to wear this trend too. See what I’ve found.

Sporty Chic

 

Summer

 

You can easily pair a maxi dress with some canvas sneakers for a casual put together summer look.
Maybe you’re the type of person who likes to add a pop of color to your outfit, well I’ve got you covered there! Do it with your shoes.

Summer Night

 

Looking for an even more laid back look? Try pairing your cotton dress with some slip on sneakers.

Maybe none of these suit you, and that’s ok. Let me show you one more idea.

I think this is probably my favorite look. Makes me want to get a pair of black sneakers to pair with my black cotton dresses!
How do you like this style ladies? Is this something that you have worn in the past or can see yourself wearing this summer? How would you wear it?

We are officially in Spring and one spring trend I keep seeing around is colored denim. I love all the different colors and hues and colored denim can be very versatile in how you wear it. Today I’m going to show some different ways to wear colored denim.

Let’s start off with a gorgeous Spring color, Pink.

Untitled #1369

 

This beautiful dusty rose colored denim looks great paired with a soft pink blouse and a traditional blue denim jacket. And the dusty rose colored shoes really complete this look.
Of course there is always the soft, baby pink colored denim.
Spring Trend: Colored Denim

 

I love this soft color paired with this perfect Spring top. The color of the purse and the jeweled sandals complete this look.
This color also looks great paired with a white top.
Denim color pastel

 

With this outfit I would probably go with a different shoe, something strappy and fun.
Another gorgeous Spring color for denim is green. Beautiful Spring green obviously! I love this color, and pairing with a striped top is a perfect option.

Green denim looks great paired with this blue blazer too!
Colored Denim

 

Coral is another fantastic color choice and is easy to pair with a variety of floral spring tops.

Spring doesn’t always have to be about soft, pastel colors though. This bold colored outfit is still a great option for Spring, and for colored denim.

Do you have any colored denim in your closet? What colors are they? What do you pair them with? Does this help you with new ways to wear colored denim? I look forward to hearing from you!

Sometimes it can be difficult to find lingerie that isn’t trendy or in style at the moment. These trends and styles don’t necessarily fit into everyone’s taste or even comfort level. So, have you ever thought about purchasing your lingerie from Etsy? Yup, I’m serious. These are hand made items and I can *almost* guarantee that with enough browsing you will find something that you will love. There are so many suggestions for lingerie when you search. Plus size, bridal, erotic, sexy and so many other suggestions to help you find what you are looking for.

Let me share some of my favorites I have found.

If you are looking for a bra and panty set, these ones caught my eye.

Etsy bra & panty sets

 

I love how the top right reminds me of a peacock; this is something different and really unique. The other two have a vintage feel to them. I love the satin and gorgeous jewel toned of the purple set and how the black set is a high waisted panty with that detail of the lace at the hip.
You know how I’m always talking about details really making the piece, I love the detail on these pieces.
Etsy lingerie sets

 

Look at the buttons on the top left set! It is the tiniest addition that can upgrade an outfit, even lingerie. The tiny little bows on the other pieces and the mix of fabrics is gorgeous detail too.
Etsy even has some gorgeous vintage pieces if today’s styles aren’t your cup of tea.

I wasn’t kidding when I said I can *almost* guarantee you will find something that suites you, whether it be for your upcoming boudoir shoot or for private eyes in your bedroom. Take a look around and show me what you found that you love. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

If you know me, you know I love to wear jeans. I am fortunate enough to not have to wear a uniform everyday or have a dress code for work. I wear jeans every day. I am a very casual type dresser, but sometimes when I’m going out with my friends I like to look nice, who doesn’t! I still typically wear jeans, but wearing a nice blouse and adding some details is what is going to really change your look.

I wanna show you some styles I found while browsing around Polyvore.

Untitled #2137

 

I love this for a few different reasons. Beautiful colored jeans, a gorgeous white long tunic top, nice embellished sandals and of course accessories. The silver cuff bracelet is a perfect addition to this outfit and I think you could really pull off any pair of earrings.
// you can't see past my blinders //

 

If there’s a bit of a chill in the air, you can still pull off a sweater and a dressier look. Make sure you are choosing a nice sweater, like this knit soft green open front, paired with this incredibly soft pink blouse under helps to pull off this casual dressy jean look.
Untitled #2214

 

Maybe you’re needing a bit more of a dressier look, but it’s still a jean type event or dinner, pull out a gorgeous blouse and pair it with some high heels. Add in some nice earrings, a nice purse and I would add a bracelet, and you’re all set for a fun night out.
Denim & Blush

 

This last look is super causal, but not your t-shirt casual jean look. A nice pleated top can be great with jeans, and paired with some heeled sandals this look is a great choice for a night out or weekend event.
How do you like to dress up your jeans? A favorite blouse or pair of heels? Some special jewelry?
