Tucked into a maxi skirt or with white jeans, this button-up shirt is an easy spring staple.

Spring Style Highlights::Polka Dots + Peplums

The new Edens Edge album cover, styled by moi.  Hannah's peplum dress 
is right on trend for the spring.  

More spring style highlights!  For me, polka dots are always a highlight.  I never get sick of them, and they never go out of style in my opinion.  They just happen to be, well, a little hotter this spring.  This fun trend makes me extra happy when paired with peplums.  Peplum, yeah, that's a word that I probably didn't know until like two months ago.  I maybe could have picked it out of a multiple choice definition list, but for sure would have been process of elimination.  And I've got some MAD test taking skills.  So put that word with "epaulets" in the category of:  "Unless you're a stylist or work at Neiman Marcus, you don't need to know what this means...well, maybe unless you're on Jeopardy! one day."

BUT since I wrote half a post about peplums, you should know that it's that little flouncy piece of fabric that juts out from the waist on tops, dresses, skirts, and jackets that are super hot this spring.  For skirts, they should be paired with sleeker tops to balance out the fabric.  And the same goes for peplum tops and jackets:  they work great with skinny cropped pants and jeans or even a flare with a very fitted thigh. 

For polka dots this season, wear them on everything, and I particularly love pairing black and white polka dots with some of the bright colored jeans and shoes that are everywhere!  Here are some great ones!

1.  A Real Confidence Bustier Top, $32.99, Modcloth.  Love this coral color.  This bustier would be cute for a shower or lunch with white pants or under a blazer for work.
2.  Peplum Dress With Ribbon Trim, $81.81, ASOS.  A peplum dress can be so waist-defining. And if the peplum is long enough, it can be a good bum-hider :-).
3.  Polka Dot Harem Pants, $22.80, Forever 21.  I think keeping the look over-all relaxed is best with these pants.  Add a white blouse tied at the waist or work back to a long boyfriend blazer with the sleeves pushed up and waist-cinching belt.
4.  Cooperative Norma Platform Heel, $29.99, Urban Outfitters.  I freaking love shoes.  And I freaking love polka dots.   So these have Amber Lehman all over them.
5.  Broken Levels Skirt, $69.95, Anthropologie.  White tank top, espradrilles, big turquoise necklace.  Done-zo.
6.  Muze Oversized Polka Dot Clutch, $98.90, Nordstrom.  Wow, this yellow is amaze.  And most people really shouldn't wear this color on their actual bodies, so a clutch is a great way to not look like a character from The Walking Dead but wear one of the colors of the season.
7.  Tibi Peplum-Waist Striped Jacket, $498, Net-a-Porter.  Tibi had gone into Grandma Land or Super Resort All-the-Time Land a while back, but they're back on the map with cute patterns and cuts that work for the under-50 set.  This jacket is a great example.
8.  Domino Effect Sweater by MINKPINK, $89,  This is actually the perfect outfit, and it's just the model for the sweater.  MINKPINK is one of my fave on-trend affordable brands too.

Kenny Chesney::Feel Like a Rock Star

Hey guys! Sorry it has been SO long since I blogged! It has been nutso bonkers around here at Amber Lehman Styling. We've done three videos this month (including this one), as well as the ACM Awards, and a number of other jobs. The non-paying gigs like blogging (oh, and house cleaning, clothes washing, and relaxing) get pushed to the back burner. But you know what, I'm getting caught up, and I'm doing "whatever makes me feel like a rock star" this weekend. The extent of it will probably be "sleeping in" until 8:00 in the morning.  Oh well!

This video was shot in Nashville in Kenny's airplane hangar.  We helped out with Kenny's wardrobe, as usual, and then worked to give the band a coordinated look.  Just because I'll be in bed by 11 tonight, doesn't mean you guys shouldn't do it up right!  This video should be some fun fuel for your weekend of partying like a rock star!

Lipgloss Junkie::Spray It Ain't So

Ladies and Gents. I am about to rock your pasty, white worlds. I have found the most amazing at home spray tanner. (Well, my super fab BFF Ali introduced me.) Seriously. I love me some Jergens Natural Glow, don't get me wrong. But, it smells. And it's sticky. 

Let me introduce you to Loreal Sublime Bronze Pro Perfect Salon Airbrush tanning mist. It's so easy to apply! It starts showing up in about an hour..and...wait for actually smells GOOD. Not kidding. Hello perfect glow?! It dries super fast and is just all around awesome. Now I feel like I can bust out all those cute skirts and dresses that have been begging me to wear them! AND- it's easy on your wallet. ($9.47 at Walmart)  It's tantastic! Stop. I had to! :)  

Be Bronze,
Carrie, the Lipgloss Junkie
