To Leaping With A Net

A year ago I would have been too nervous to wear this outfit on the blog. I was afraid you might look at it and think, "She looks great but if I wore that to work people would give me looks all day ... She can pull that off in fancy New York City but that's never going to fly in my daily mom life ..."

Movies make you wish. Wish you were Audrey Hepburn dancing with Fred Astaire or life had moments Nicole Kidman swinging high above the Moulin Rouge.

The Little White Dress

I hate rules. No white after Labor Day? Has that person never seen white jeans with a cozy fall sweater, a winter bride or a stunning white peacoat in the snow?!

Secrets To A Swimsuit That Flatters Your Figure

Being in a bathing suit is weird. You're, like, almost naked. I don't care how comfortable you are in your skin, it's kind of bizarre that it's socially acceptable to wear so little clothes in public, right? Meanwhile, with so little fabric and so little diversity in shape, it's very hard to apply a lot of the style principles I teach: how to be empowered over a garment, change the shape, the silhouette, the style chemistry, where the eye goes. A few strips of lycra don't give a girl much to be empowered over!

How To Wear The Classic Shirtdress

Smitten to be featured on Better Homes & Gardens style alongside some of my favorite fellow style bloggers! Check out Jessie, Hallie, Caroline and Beth with our unique spins on one classic little shirtdress. A pale blue washes me out a bit, so to make it pop more I added black and white stripes beneath in the form of a tight light crop top {one that is sometime too form-fitting to wear alone, but is perfect for laying beneath}.

Quick Easy Style

May was a whirlwind m'dear. One night after a long day of filming I had five minutes to change clothes and make it to a friend's book launch party. In those moments, I think every girl needs a couple of "go to outfits". You know they work. They don't take a lot of fuss. And perhaps you even intentionally don't wear them on average days specifically to save 'em in your back pocket for those times when you're rushed or exhausted.

Make New Friends With Your Style

I put her on for church and thought, "Is she too much? The volume? The color?" So I did my best to tone her town. Simple grey long-sleeved tee, casual hair and makeup.

Chic Mom Style

Betty, met Mama Rushford! Or as bestie and I call our mom's by their first two initials of their first and last names {Betty Ball and Lori Rushford, BeBa} and LoRu. Last winter when I was in London my mother kept commenting upon and borrowing my necklaces, which were mostly from Forever 21. "We should take you there!" I said. "Oh I'm not young enough to shop there," she'd reply. "90% of it isn't for you. But if you go with me, we'll focus on the 10% of it that is and I'll prove you wrong". We did, and she found this great pearl necklace!
