How To

Whites are trending big this season and neutrals have come so far from plain old tan. Soft, pastel hues like blush, dusty blue and mint have made their debut and become the new essentials to a well-rounded wardrobe. Neutrals have definitely garnered a bad rap over the years - deemed dull and boring, or overlooked in favor of more colorful trends. But...
I love a killer all-black look.  Especially for the holidays.  All black is slimming, I can drink red wine without fear, and it's easy to find shoes to match.  Holla. But the downside is...boredom.  Especially during this shiny, glittery time of year, all-black outfits are often second-best.  Like my top choice was too cold/too complicated/needed a different bra...okfine.  Black pants it...
When we visited Philly, Zack and I were in shopping heaven.  There were stores GALORE . . . H&M, Zara, Forever 21, my usual spots to check out.  Shana brought me into Madewell, a store I had never actually been in, to try on jeans.  I knew their jeans looked great on Shana, but I had low expectations for myself,...

How To Wear Leggings Now

  I'm taking over our usual #myeverydayedit spot to talk about leggings.  In the comments section of the cozy sweater article, Beth had asked us for legging inspiration, so I've been doing a little thinking.  If you follow me on Instagram (@shanachristine), I threw a few of these pics out there already, and asked TME's insta-community for additional ideas.  They've been insanely helpful,...
    While I was working on the Free People collab with Nordstrom a few weeks ago, one of the pieces I had ordered was this Free People tunic.  I loved the print, the cool neckline, the mod, swingy shape....but when I threw it on, my first response was, "NOPE".  It was simultaneously too long and too short, and therefore hurt my...
We had a blast at the World War Two Weekend in Reading, PA this past weekend.  (For more deets on the event, see my full coverage here.  It's pretty amazing.)  But dressing for the weekend is always a challenge:  it's hot, it's sunny, I'm on my feet all day, and then at night.....there's a swing band and dance party.  To make...
If you've spent any time on Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen some iteration of boyfriend jean styling that involves bare ankles and high heels.  Sometimes with slouchy, fuzzy sweaters, sometimes with blazers, sometimes with long tailored coats - I love it all.  But puzzling (at least to me) is how these outfits keep ending up on best-dressed lists called, "What You'll...

How To Layer Right Now

  We haven't talked about layering in a while, so when Nordstrom asked me to take a look at the latest from Free People, I knew exactly what I wanted to talk about.  Free People clothes are made to layer, and I usually keep a piece or two in constant rotation. I have two simple "rules" for layering: 1.  Apply the Rule of...
  Did you guys see the latest J.Crew style guide?  (Us regular folk call it a catalog.)  Anyway, I've been obsessed - OBSESSED - with the girl on the cover.  That SCARF.  So I've been trying and trying to recreate at home....but couldn't quite get it.  So I booked an appointment with my fav J.Crew stylist over at Suburban Square,...
  In Part 1 of this series, we talked about the key wardrobe pieces for leg lengthening, and did a little fashion math involving sneakers.  Today I want to focus on the leg-lengthening miracle flat: the nude ballet. The Key Pieces (For full explanation, description, and links to all of the products below, see Part 1.)   Try This: Any shoe that lets the eye travel...
