Free Earrings with purchase! On-trend French Kande Jewelry​

Hellow fashionistas, I recently became acquainted with a beautiful jewelry line that I think is to die for. I love layering clothes and also necklaces and bracelets. French Kande is a brand that is perfect for layering or just wearing one stunning piece! Any piece in the line can be layered with any other piece. They all go together.

Free Earrings with Purchase! I also have included a code for a free pair of gorgeous earrings with any purchase of French Kande jewelry at the bottom of the blog!

The owner and designer is Kande Hall. And Veronica was so generous to allow me to choose anything I wanted from her line of jewelry. This was the hardest thing to do because I absolutely loved everything I saw in her online shop. I think everything she designs can be worn together in so many stunning combinations it’s endless.  I chose a beautiful necklace that was designed with 3 layers of beads and mixed metals.

About French Kande:

French Kande is a vintage forward® jewelry line created by indie designer Kande Hall. Her collections feature stunning, vintage French medallions from the 1960’s that she discovered during her travels throughout France. Gifted to their best customers as a token of appreciation by local businesses, each medallion is a story waiting to be told. Each offers its own unique history and brilliantly captures the style and attitude of the glorious French culture. Designed and manufactured entirely in her hometown of Los Angeles, every design and casting is proprietary: designed personally by Kande Hall. If it doesn’t say French Kande, it simply isn’t. Using natural materials of the highest quality possible and working only with Los Angeles and U.S. based manufacturing resources, every length of chain, every strand of stone and pearls is personally curated by Kande to ensure quality and reflect her trademark aesthetic. Timeless in its design, Kande’s jewelry speaks boldly, yet it is undeniably feminine. Her SoCal lifestyle has shaped her “throw on and go” attitude regarding her collections’ style and wearability; it’s the perfect accessory for a day at the beach or a night on the town.

Venus On-trend​ Fashion: Weekend In Downtown​ Riverside

 

 

Hello, Fashionistas!

This past weekend my hubby and I stayed at The Mission Inn Hotel in downtown Riverside. The Mission Inn has always been a favorite place for us. Its especially dear to our hearts because for a little over 20 years we owned a historical landmark home called Ridge Court in downtown Riverside that was designed by the same architect G Stanley Willson, who was one of the main architects on the Mission Inn. We sold our 107-year-old family home in December of 2015 and downsized to a smaller log home in the mountains In Green Valley Lake, just above Lake Arrowhead in The San Bernardino mountains.  We very much miss our historical mission style home we so lovingly restored and cared for over 20 plus years! We raised our two sons in this home, Our oldest son was married in the courtyard, grandchildren were born there, and many happy holidays were shared. Now when we visit the Mission Inn, it reminds us of our home and surrounds us with the beautiful architecture we used to be so fortunate to live with every day. For some of you who have expressed interest in our old home, I will post some photos at the very bottom of this blog if you’re still interested.

We also visited the Riverside Art Museum for some nostalgic fun before eating lunch at an old favorite, Simple Simons in the Main Street Plaza next to the Mission Inn. It’s simply the best bakery and sandwich shop you will ever have the pleasure of visiting!

 

 

All Three of my Outfits for the weekend were sent to me from one of my favorite online stores Venus.com. The first was this great pair of distressed medium wash high waisted jeans, an off the shoulder striped top with a tied waist detail, cute cropped jean jacket, and some clear rock stud style sandals. Early that morning when we left our snowy cabin, I styled this outfit with some white booties then as the day in Riverside warmed up, I put on the sandals and took off the jacket. This outfit only needed a cute pair of blue Sugar Fix earrings from Target to complete the look! To shop this look, I will leave all the info below.

 

 

The second outfit Venus sent me was this yellow spring floral off the shoulder dress and strappy nude heels that I changed into for an early dinner in the Mission Inn courtyard. We so loved our courtyard at our home in Riverside, and enjoy that same kind of atmosphere whenever the opportunity arises.

 

 

 

 

The third outfit Venus sent me was this asymmetrical short in the front long in the back floral and stripe top, with black suede mules and the cutest clear heel. I only needed my black leggings and a cute pair of statement earrings from Bauble Bar to complete this look. We had a great morning having breakfast and wandering through some old favorite shops, before catching a movie and heading back up the mountain to go home. I remember the old feeling of returning home to our historical house after having spent time at The Mission Inn thinking how blessed we were to have the privilege of caring for and living in a place that was just as beautifully designed as the Mission Inn. We adore spending time at The Historical Mission Inn as It always makes us feel like we have returned home again!

​On-trend​ Jumpsuits​ For Spring 2019

 

I just love the one and done ease of wearing a jumpsuit. The jumpsuit and boiler suit is very on-trend going into spring and summer 2019. The jumpsuit and boilersuit were all over the runway shows for the 2019 spring-summer season. They can both be styled for casual daytime or dressed up for date night. Venus.com is definitely the first place I think of when looking for a jumpsuit!

They have almost 100 jumpsuits on their website in so many trendy, and modern styles. Best of all the prices are fantastic! They range as low as $16.99 on sale. An example is this deep fuchsia colored one I’m wearing in the photo above that also comes in black. I think that would look great dressed up for an evening event. The average price of a jumpsuit from Venus is around $39.00 to $59.00. So they are very affordable and they are easy to deal with on returns. A return policy is critical to me when ordering online or from a catalog.

 

I have also selected a few others that caught my eye. Venus has the most extensive selection of jumpsuits I have found. I especially like the on-trend polka -dot jumpsuit in the color brown that is also an on-trend color. The one-shoulder asymmetrical design jumpsuit and the one with the ruffles are also on point for spring, as well as the florals and brighter colors. The ones above are the ones I am planning on ordering.

I just want you to know this is not a sponsored post and I do not get paid a commission on any sales from this. I just really like their jumpsuits and shopping for their clothes in general. Venus has been very generous to me and sometimes does send me clothes for free. Right now they have been very kind in extending me a discount coupon code for you to save 20% on anything right now and is good through Feb. 25th at 12:00 pm. You can even use the code on sale items! That is amazing! Most stores only let you use discount codes for full price items. I hope you take advantage of this while it’s available. Please use the discount code that follows at checkout.

Happy spring shopping fashionistas,

Hello fashionistas, I’m excited to be sharing my experience with @teamiblends with you all! As I get older, it’s important to eat healthily but sometimes it can be hard to stay on track, so I was happy to become a #teamiparner. I’ve used @teamiblends 30-day detox for over 3 weeks and it’s been an On-trend help with any stomach issues on the go. Like most women, I can get so horribly bloated when traveling and it’s really uncomfortable especially being away from home. Since starting this, I feel like a new woman and much lighter too! If you’re wondering about Teami, I personally recommend it to everyone! Use my code TREND50 and save $10 off your order.
Have a blessed week,

New On-trend Fashions For Spring & Summer 2019

IMG_8231

I spent the last few weeks watching all the couture spring and summer designer shows as well as the new collections ready to hit the market. This allowed me to let you know what’s coming! The hot trends that are all over the catwalk, and designer fashion shows for spring summer 2019. Not all new trends will be for everyone. Personal style should always come first and if a new trend intrigues you and you think its something that can work with your own personal style then have some fun and try a few new things!

I will list the fashion, color, fabric, pattern, accent, accessories, and shoe trends that are new for this coming spring and summer. I will also discuss some previous trends that are going to stay current as we move forward.

What is fashionable and on-trend this season:

#1 Asymmetrical / uneven hemlines

The asymmetrical design was the most prevalent design trend I saw almost every designer showing in their new collections. Off the shoulder styles still going strong with one shoulder asymmetrical looks leading the way. Pantsuits, jumpsuits, boilersuits, are all on-trend. Midi, and maxi length skirts and dresses, padded and big shoulder details that recon to the 1980s is back in style.

Ruffles large and small were a huge trend. Longer length’s for shorts just above or below the knee. Chanel showed biker shorts worn with heels and blazers. Structured jackets with flowy pants or skirts, and lots of oversized blazers.

The cape or garment with cape-like detailing in the back. As for pants, anything and everything goes; from skinny to wide leg, bell bottom, and high waisted styles still very on-trend. So whatever pant or slack looks best on you will be on-trend!

#2 Colors

Black and white are very popular as are soft neutrals beige, tan, sand, and brown tones. On the brighter side of things, yellows of all shades from pale to mustard or marigold tones. Pinks, pale pinks to magentas and fuschias, and lavender. Baby blue, royal blue, and navy, also all shades of green. on the brighter side, orange was a standout and red was still going strong into spring. Last of all bold neon colors were a very popular trend for the new season ahead.

 

#3 Fabrics

Lots of silky, and sheer flowy fabrics. Anything shiny, sparkly or iridescent, and metallics are still very on-trend. Lace, exceptionally large almost Battenburg and cutout looking laces. Netting type textures, as well as crochet, were very prevalent. Bleached denim made a big splash on the runway as well as leathers of all types are still very on-trend. Then clear plastic made its way into coats, handbag, and shoes.

#4 Patterns

Florals large and small were everywhere on evening gowns to blouses and even pants. Coats, shoes, and boots were all adorned with florals. Polka dots made a huge splash! And the animal print trend is not going away anytime soon with leopard, zebra, snakeskin still very on-trend in the season ahead. Stripes, plaids, still on trend while and tie-dye also made an appearance. Color block and pattern mixing was also a prevalent styling trend.

 

 

#5 Accents

Lots of sequins, beading, or anything that had sparkle, fringe of all types (including leather and beads strung to look like fringe), and feathers were everywhere. Also, lace showed up as trim detailing on everything from dresses, skirts, and even pants. Pleats and rushing also in style. The Bow was a very popular accent used. Last of all the butterfly and fabric rose detail was a new surprise. I’m sure we will be seeing these two trends make their way to retail.

#6 Accessories

The belt made the biggest splash in accessories. Big belts, small belts, chain and jewelry like belts, belts with large gold buckles, belts that hung long and had movement when walking, rope styled belts, and belts worn with other belts (two or more worn together). Everything was belted. Evening gowns had belts, belts over the top of blazers, belts over long tunic tops, pretty much anything you could add a belt to had a belt. Also, the belt bag was also a huge trend. So I would say any belt you have tucked away in your closet will be on-trend this coming season. The large brim hat was a popular item. My favorite accessory trend was the statement earring and statement necklace! Big bold jewelry was a huge trend, and even fancier styles were worn with more casual looks. As for shoes, the ankle bootie is still here to stay as well as the knee boot. The pointy toe pump took a twist with the addition of a T strap or ankle strap detail. The strappy sandals are still trendy. The wedge style shoe or sandal is also making a big splash on the runway. Finally, large handbags seemed to be the most popular, most designers showed very large handbags with their collections.

 

 

I know this is a lot to take in, but I just wanted you to know just what trends were available for you to choose from. I think the styling trend that was most wearable for everyone no matter their age or body type was the monochromatic look. This look of wearing one color from head to toe is universally flattering on everyone! It is also a very classy look that can make whatever you are wearing, look more expensive than it is.

What trends will you be incorporating into your spring summer looks? I know I will be loving and wearing several trends as we enter into spring.

Have a blessed day,

Sandy
