Spring Do’s

Flippin’ Out

Over Spring Hair Trends 

This season’s hair-dos are all about being a little undone. From loose curls to a windswept up-do, the theme is imperfection and I think that sounds beautiful. Take a hint from a few of the below styles I’ve pulled to showcase my favorite trends.  I personally love brushed-through curls that soften up and become wavy. Each photo can be found via Pinterest below. I’ve also included a few hair tutorials I recommend watching. Enjoy!

Spring is all about stepping out in style. So do just that with your wardrobe and your accessories. Shop a few of my wish list handbags below, and see what styles I’m obsessing over this season.

Let’s Get Dressed

In All Our Spring Favorites

… Onsesies, florals, denim, and sandals

Let’s kiss that snow goodbye once and for all. It’s time for bold color, big prints, and beautiful spring weather. At the start of each season I totally re-organize my closet. I start by separating my wardrobe  into “toss” and “keep” and then the strategizing begins…

How can I reuse and recycle my favorites from a year ago, and bring them new meaning?

That’s the general question for my ritual season clean out. This spring, I plan to take those key pieces I left in the “keep” pile and accessorize them in a new way. Like below, I have a few old jumpsuits that I can easily pair with my trusty denim jacket. I’ll invest in a cost friendly, new pair of sandals or a bag to spruce it up. And like that, I have an old outfit with a brand new life. #SPRINGFEVER

SHOP THE LOOK: JUMPSUIT | JACKET | NECKLACE | BAG | SANDALS

Guest Post: Team Hope

Meet Ashley Janover;

A World Traveler, Philanthropist, Fashionista & True Inspiration 

Several months ago I had the pleasure of meeting an inspirational gal who I would soon call a co-worker and friend. Although our brief stint working together at a New York fashion and talent agency came to an end, I am still taking note of the amazing and wonderful things she is embarking on. Her story is bold and beautiful, and her adventures will have you in absolute awe. I am honored to say I know this chick, and I hope that this post will spread some inspiration to you and wherever you are reading from. So without further edu, I give you Ashley Janover…

Before reading, Click HERE to see a video of Ashley in Thailand at the Tsunami relief orphanage, and  click HERE for a quick video all about TEAM HOPE.

FILE1835

Team HOPE was created in an honor of my mother who passed away from Pancreatic cancer in 2011. We educate the public, and raise money towards the advancement of research. This fatal disease continues to be the most deadly and least funded of all cancer types. My bold goal of doubling the pancreatic cancer survival rate as well as working harder and faster to increase international awareness/research has brought recognition from the largest pancreatic cancer organizations in the nation!

What once started as a nationwide project based out of Boca Raton Florida, turned into an internationally known organization that has touched the lives of people all over the globe. After the successes Team Hope had in North America, I was then inspired to travel and increase global awareness of the universal struggles in other parts of the world. I have lived with, and mentored children throughout Europe, Middle East, South America, North America and Southeast Asia.

I had the opportunity to provide facts and statistics about pancreatic cancer in 3rd world countries to an audience of people who never even knew these types of sicknesses existed. Most importantly, I helped support local initiatives in improving the lives of children, while conserving the environment, education, health, and living conditions for the economically disadvantaged. TeamHope1
TeamHope2Team hope is so great because not only do we touch the lives of people in the pancreatic cancer community world wide, but also we provide hope, support, direction and guidance to underprivileged children, countless patients, and anyone in need of that extra boost of love. We really are more than just an advocacy organization. We are an alliance. We are an Altruistic team that focuses on the devotion of constantly delivering hope to our supporter’s everyday.
I am a benevolent philanthropist and an avid traveler. In every situation I am presented with, is an opportunity for me to explore and enjoy the beauty of this world.

Casual Affair

Spring Softness

With the basics and essentials 

I’m standing rooftop on a gorgeous NYC day. It’s actually quite mild outside, might I add. It’s the first time in a long time my pale feet have seen sandals and I am not complaining one bit. Lucky for me, I already did the pre-spring pampering session – a mandatory mani pedi.

With that being said and my toes being painted, I’ve never been so excited for the spring season. I’m ready to welcome back life in the outdoors of one of the most magnificent cities in all of the world.

With this spring-esq outfit, I’m preparing for a very casual affair. With a basic denim blouse and black slack, I can’t go wrong for a very relaxed event. I’ve paired my basics with a NEW Lia Sophia floral necklace for a pop of something sparkly and special.

WHAT I’M WEARING: DENIM BLOUSE | TANK | NECKLACE | PANTS | SANDALS | BRACELETS

Take a Hike

It’s Time For A Little Outdoor Exercise

In the city, we call that a trip around Central Park…

An outdoor workout has to be my favorite, or only kind of workout I appreciate. There’s just something so addicting about it. Maybe it’s that “having the wind in your hair” kind-of-moment, where the sun is beating down on you and your only focus is finishing that next mile. The outdoor scene keeps your adrenaline pumping as you jam to your favorite song…

I can picture it now: taking out the week’s worth of stress on the trails of Central Park. For me, my plan is to tackle the winding paths this spring/summer with a little swagger and style. Of course I would to tie exercising back to fashion, and I know it’s a bold statement. However, working out in something that is nicely put together, will make that sweat dripping down your face about 100 times more attractive.

A Day At The Races

Trackside Style

… With a pop of pastel

Spring has finally sprung! This can only mean one thing in the state of Kentucky: KEENELAND. If you ask me, it’s the most beautiful, fun and stylish time of the year in the south. A day at Keeneland is super successful when you ask yourself the following questions before arriving trackside:

1. What am I going to wear?

2. What’s my drink of choice?

3. Wait a second; what shoes do I plan on wearing?

4. What horses will I bet on?

Obviously the #1 question being, “what will I wear?” So ladies let’s take a second to discuss Keeneland style. It’s classy but trendy, and always colorful. The mornings are cool, so layering is of most importance. Finally, your shoes will make or break your day. If you plan to do a heel, at least choose one with ankle support like below. Lastly, make sure you have fun and enjoy!

Have a style question? Just email me: alex@lexwhatwear.com
