Find Just About Anything!

The annual list and ranking of the most popular baby names in America was released just this month. Can you speculate which monikers reached the pinnacle of this annual list? According to the records, a multitude of “Emmas” and “Noahs” will fill the seats in future classrooms, as these two appellations topped the register of trendy names. After hearing about the most common infant monikers, it got us to wondering about other useful and interesting “favorites” for kids.  1. Top Toy
The premiere child plaything that surpassed all others on the list of favorite toys was developed over 90 years ago.

Welcome Princess Charlotte!

The Great Kate Wait of 2015 is finally over and the newest royal, Princess Charlotte, is here!  When the Duke and Duchess emerged on the hospital steps with England’s much-anticipated princess, there were three questions on the lips of her subjects. 1.) Does she have the same squishy, pinchable cheeks as big brother Prince George? Absolutely she does! 2.) How would Kate look less than 12 hours after giving birth? Amazing well put together and perfectly coiffed! 3.) What would the itty-bitty princess wear for her public debut? A snuggly-looking crotched hat and a pristine white blanket.

National Bike Week

The third week of May is designated as National Bike Week.  Many adults have lost the simple pleasure of riding a bike in their daily lives as they watch their kids graduate from a tricycle to a bicycle.  Adults, it’s time to reclaim the bicycle—and no, spin class does not count. You don’t have to be competing in the Tour de France to take up biking again.  However, you can get a bit of Parisian flair when riding a bike when your sport Boston Proper’s Fashion Wedge Sneakers.  These are not your go-to sneakers for mountain biking, but are perfect for wheeling around the corner to pick up your daily latte, beignet and newspaper.

Waking Up Neutral Outfits

Inspired by magazine photos, DIY television shows and industrious friends all touting the benefits of a closet neatly organized by color, I recently set out to catalog my clothing by hue. I was hoping that having my trousseau chromatically arranged would make it simpler to mix and match, and to see what I truly have and what I need in my wardrobe. The exercise certainly accomplished the later. Once everything was sorted, I ended up with a scant stack of dark denim, a teeny-weeny section of colorful pieces, and acres of black textiles. A quick glance into my closet might trick you into thinking it belongs to Elvira or Wednesday Addams.

Styling Spring Scarves

Now that spring has finally reared its head and the slew of summer holidays are creeping up, you’ve probably packed away your heavy knit scarves. But, hopefully you left room in your closet for a bevy of enchanting lightweight wraps. Since they don’t need to keep you warm, spring and summer scarves can focus their full attention on graceful good looks. Of course you could just twirl them around you neck, but there are plenty of other creative ways to incorporate scarves into your wardrobe this season. As a headwrap:  Look like a fashion icon even on your worst hair days.

No Job Too Big or Too Small

These days, corporations require job openings that necessitate very specific and intricate qualifications. As the world changes, precise skills are pinpointed by companies to assure they can remain competitive and grow with the changing business environment.  In fact, the aptitude needed for some of these positions are just downright wacky. For example, employment for a “Beard Mentor” was recently posted.  This particular gentleman (at least we believe it was a male who placed the request), stated that this work opening was “serious business.

Boho is Back

Every glossy periodical, fashion blog and style-driven Instagram account is smattered with photos of models piling on layers of loose linen, headbands and billowing, flowery frocks. Everyone wants in on the boho look, which merges hippie vibes from the 60s and 70s with relaxed, laid-back looks.  But, while models seem to be virtuosos at making boho work, real women often have a hard time pulling it off without looking that they confused the afterschool pick up line with the one for Coachella tickets.  Add structure:  Billowing layers of gauzy fabric are a hallmark of the boho look.
