How to Wear a Dress That is too Short – Three Easy Tips

Do you have longer tunic-length tops or sweaters that you’d like to get more wear out of, and style as a dress? Depending on your height, you can get more wear out of some of those shorter dresses or tops and feel more modest, comfortable and stylish.

What do you put under a dress that is too short?

Tip 1: Lace Slip

I know what you’re thinking, like a grandma slip? Lol, no! These slips can feel modern and add dimension with a stylish look and feel. I bought these three pack from Amazon and you’d be surprised at what you can pair underneath them! They’re great under sweater dresses, tunic flannel shirts, and looser-fitting, tunic-length tops.

Tip 2: Biker Shorts

Maybe you’re on the short side or feel confident wearing the short dress, but need a solution when transitioning from sitting to standing. A biker short can give you all the confidence you need! They come in all sorts of colors so even if you want to wear a nude pair under a white dress – it can work!

 

How to Make a Short Dress Longer without Sewing

Tip 3: Heel Height

Sometimes if you have a taller heel it can sometimes make the dress feel shorter. I recommend taking out the heel and instead wear a lower heel or flat for a more modest feel.

Now, have fun with it! Let me know in the comments below which tips you’ve tried or what other style questions you’d like to see me tackle next. Cheers sis!

Build Your Wardrobe

How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe Step by Step

Have you ever said, “I have nothing to wear,” standing in front of a full closet? I feel ya and have been there multiple times. Have you ever counted how many articles of clothing, accessories and shoes you own? It is probably a lot! This is the time to step back and evaluate your closet. Do you have what you really need? No worries! I got you! I’m going to break down how to build the ideal capsule wardrobe and up-level your style all while saving you money!

To shop this post: You can shop any of my looks by clicking the pictures in the carousel. I may receive a small commission for purchases made through these links. Thank you for supporting my small business!

1. What is a capsule wardrobe

2. How do I build a capsule wardrobe (step by step)

3. How much clothes should be in a capsule wardrobe

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know what a “capsule wardrobe” is. It’s just a fancy word for saying “clothing basics”. These basics should be timeless, have the ability to wear multiple times and be able to be mix and match.

How Do I Build a Capsule Wardrobe?

The way I like to think about building your wardrobe is like building a house. Start with the foundation and load bearing walls. Think of these pieces as the core structure of your house. You can’t complete an outfit without them. All the other accent colors and pieces are for your added style/flare. I’ve broken this process down into steps to set you up for success.

Step One : Closet Clean Out

Take everything out of your closet and drawers. I mean everything – even if you think you may still want it! That way you’re starting with a clean blank slate (don’t worry, they aren’t going in the garbage yet). Consider having a fabric shaver, extra hangers, and steamer on hand for those items you decide to keep.

Step Two: Assess the Clothes You Have.

This is when you’ll need to grab my Must-Have Capsule Wardrobe Checklist. It’s my freebie to you! Only put the clothes back in your closet that you can check off the list. These will be your core basics that should carry you through the seasons.

Step Three: What to Do with the Rest?

If you haven’t worn something in at least a full calendar year, I suggest doing one of these four actions.

  • Toss
  • Cosign
  • Keep
  • Donate

Toss

I recommend tossing the items that are damaged or extremely worn, such as panty hose with rips, underwear you haven’t worn in ages, socks with holes, t-shirts with pit stains. These can not be recycled.

Consign

I love this option because it means you make money! There are a few options here.

Local Consignment – every city has consignment shops that usually take in seasonal clothes, trending fashion, or name brand items. I suggest starting here. It’s worth bringing all your clothes and seeing what you can get. Some consignment shops offer the ability to donate your clothes afterward with items they don’t want. You can either choose this route or take what’s left over and move on to my next option.

Thred up – Thred up is one of the largest online thrift stores that recycles second hand clothing. You can sign up for a “clean out kit” and send off your clothes to them and they take care of it. Once the items sell you can get a cash out or shopping credit.

Poshmark – Poshmark is another option that gives you more control over selling. You can simply sign up for the free app and post your own clothes. You can choose the price. This option is ideal if you don’t mind taking the time to post and ship each item.

Keep

Keep only the items on my checklist, however there are those pieces that you’ll need as accent pieces or an expensive splurge you aren’t willing to get rid of. I get it! Just remember that it’s easy to fall into the trap of making an excuse to keep something. Just remind yourself – it’s just stuff!

Donate

This is one of my favorite options because it’s the easiest! Round up all your leftover clothes, put them in a bag and drop them off at your local thrift store. This not only benefits the community, but it’s the least amount of work. Some thrift stores offer the option to itemize your clothes or donations for the ability to write it off on your taxes. Plus no hassle with storing your clothes waiting for them to sell online. Plus you get the satisfaction of knowing you did something good for the planet and community! Win Win!

Step Four: Missing Checklist Items

Build out the rest of your wardrobe with the missing items from your checklist. I’ve linked a few options below (one item per category). Remember to keep colors in mind. I suggest neutrals – white, black, grey, taupe/tan, nude. I’ve got a lot of options to shop from on my “build your wardrobe” – amazon store front or shop page

From here you can start thinking of adding in some accent colors to your wardrobe. Think about what colors suit your skin tone and personality. For me, I love pink/mauve/rose tones.

A quick guide for colors based on your skin tone consider these:

Light Skin Tones: Typically cool tones such as blues, grey, baby pink. Silver typically looks better rather than gold or copper when considering jewelry.

Medium Skin Tones: Think of warm tones such as browns, orange, olive, green, reds, purples. Gold and copper look better rather than silver.

Dark Skin Tones: Navy, burgundy, hot pink, teal, bright red.

Keep in mind this is a guide and not the end all be all rule. Fashion is all about feeling confident in your clothes. If you love a certain color that doesn’t follow this guideline – go for it!

 

How Much Clothes Should be in a Capsule Wardrobe?

There is no hard and fast rule on how many pieces you should have in your closet. If you stick with my Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe checklist you will have 90 pieces all together (including intimates). Sounds like a lot, but isn’t it kind of crazy thinking about how many extra wardrobe items we already have on top of this!

Capsule Wardrobe Must Haves

Now that you’ve completed your closet clean out, assessment, and built a solid foundation for your wardrobe feel proud! Sometimes letting go of clothes can be hard, however for me, after the mess is cleared the anxiety goes with it! Comment below what’s your favorite part of a closet clean out and building a whole new wardrobe.

How to Style a Shacket for Fall and Winter – Step by Step

Tired of a boring sweater? Shackets are a great alternative, and with them coming back year to year, I’d recommend investing in a few! I’m almost embarrassed to say that my closet is slowly starting to be taken over by them (and I thought my sweaters were a problem, eek!). But who can say no when they come in so many different patterns and styles. Not to mention they’re so comfy and cozy! Here is your ultimate style guide to shackets – from ‘what the heck are they’, to how to style these bad boys.

How to Style Shackets

What is a Shacket?

Let’s not make it more difficult than it needs to be. A shacket is simply a “shirt jacket”. Combine the two words and you get “shacket”. Genius right? I think of it as a hybrid between a flannel shirt and lightweight jacket. I’m not sure how long ago these came about, however this little hybrid is here to stay. I’ve seen it come back year after year so I’d suggest investing in one or two.

Shackets for fall and winter

What Do You Wear With a Shacket?

Shackets aren’t as tricky as some make them out to be. I think of them as a heavy flannel and they’re meant to be layered. Let’ break it down step by step.

  1. Step one: Pick a base or bottom (pants, jeans, biker shorts, faux leather leggings, shirt dress, midi skirt)
  2. Step two: Choose your first layer (bodysuit, waffle knit shirt, lace tank, body contouring t-shirt or turtleneck, etc).
    1. Pro-tip: If your shacket has a pattern choose a neutral or solid color base or layer.
  3. Step three: Layer Shacket on Top
    1. Pro-tip: Layer additional clothes underneath as needed given the temperature
  4. Step four: Add shoes. These can be sherpa boots, sneakers, booties, knee high boots. Don’t be afraid to dress up or down.
  5. Step Five (optional): Add hat. It can be a ballcap, wide brim hat, cabbie, or beanie depending on which look you’re going for.

Shacket Outfit Ideas

Need a shacket outfit idea? I’ve created a video with 9 different shacket outfit ideas to choose from using jeans, leggings, faux leather leggings, a midi dress, skirt and more. You can even shop all these looks below.

How to Style a Long Shacket

Long Shackets

Don’t let the length of this shacket scare you! It’s actually a really good option if you’re feeling lazy. Throw on some jeans, a white knotted t-shirt or lacey tank and you’re good to go. You can also style a long shacket with faux leather leggings, sneakers, and plain shirt as well. I had fun styling this piece by adding a stiff wide brim hat.

Plaid Shacket

When I think of a shacket, one of the first things that comes to mind is the pattern: plaid. Plaid is a great pattern for fall and winter. There are many different types of plaid (check, gingham, tattersall, houndstooth, tartan, glen, etc) but sticking with a neutral color option will extend the use of your shacket. But hey, if bright colors are your thing: you do you! Below are some great plaid shacket options!

Medium Length Plaid Shackets

Shacket and Dress Combo

Pink Plaid Shackets

A shacket and dress combo is one not to be overlooked! By layering a shacket over top of a dress you can really dress it down. Try layering over a shirt dress. I’m also a fan of pairing a tighter fitting dress or skirt with a looser fitting item (like a shacket). Try pairing a body contouring dress or skirt with an oversized shacket. Add a hat and boots for extra style!

Now you’re a shacket expert! At the end of the day, style is all about feeling confident in what you’re wearing. Now that you have some inspiration, feel confident that whatever shoes you pick, you’re going to look GREAT! Want more styling ideas? What would you like to see next? Comment below!

19 Best Shoes to Wear with Straight Leg Jeans

The 90’s are back, baby! Straight leg jeans are in and I see no sight of them going away any time soon. I have to give Gen Z some credit where credit is due because straight leg jeans are comfy! Now I’ll always love skinny jeans and the figure they give you, however let’s face it, straight leg are so much easier to put on. Am I right? However, one problem, what shoes to pair?  I’m breaking it down by category to show you what shoes to wear with straight leg jeans.

How to Wear Straight Leg Jeans with Sneakers

Sneakers for Straight Leg Jeans

Everyone loves a good comfy sneaker! Sneakers look great with straight leg jeans! Now, let me first clarify I’m not talking athletic or gym shoes, but a nice plain low-profile white sneaker with a little platform. These babies go a long way. Try cuffing your jeans to show some ankle or wear as normal – either way these are going to look good on you!

What Boots to Wear with Straight Leg Jeans

Ankle Boots for Straight Leg Jeans

This could be an entire blog post in itself since they’re so many different types of boots (comment below if you’d like to see it). For the sake of this article, I’ll stick with ankle boots for straight leg jeans. I suggest a tighter ankle fit with a looser pant (try a sock booties). Let’s talk toe shape. I recommend a pointy toe since it give the illusion of a longer leaner leg. The height of the ankle bootie doesn’t matter. If you go with a tighter ankle bootie your ankle won’t get lost if your straight leg jeans happen to fall over the top of the boot. If you’re a fan of showing off a little ankle try cuffing your jeans.

What Shoes You Should Pair with Straight Leg Jeans

Can You Wear Heels with Straight-Leg Jeans?

High Heels for Straight Leg Jeans

High heels are a great option when you want to dress up your straight leg jeans. Similarly to ankle pointy toe boots a good pointy toe heel will make your legs look long and lean. Opposite to pointy, a flat open toe strappy heel sandal is very instyle. This subtle little sexy sandal will make you a few inches taller and feel more confident.

Heels with Straight Leg Jeans

Do Loafers Look Good with Jeans?

Loafers for Straight Leg Jeans

Don’t count out loafers for straight leg jeans! These bad boys will never go out of style. They can really make your outfit look expensive. Pair with a silk blouse and straight leg jeans and you can wear this outfit to casual Friday at work or pair a lace cami, blazer and straight jeans for a streetwear look. Invest in some good loafers and they will last for many years.

Wide Leg Jeans and Loafers and straight leg jeans

How Do You Style Full Length Jeans?

Mules for Straight Leg Jeans

Mules are the best option to wear with full length straight leg jeans. They look great with full or cropped length straight jeans and they’re are super easy. Literally slide them on and go. Don’t worry about where they’re hitting you. If you feel “too short” try a heeled mule option.

Mules for Straight Leg Jeans

Can You Wear Sandals with Straight Leg Jeans?

Sandals for Straight Leg Jeans

Don’t underestimate the power of sandals with full length straight leg jeans. I recommend a pair of sandals you can slide your foot into or have small straps. This way you won’t have to worry about how the jeans will lay over the shoe. Try these greek slides that I’m wearing here. They’re super easy to get on and off, and this style will come back year over year.

High Rise Straight Leg Jeans

At the end of the day, style is all about feeling confident in what you’re wearing. Now that you have some inspiration, feel confident that whatever shoes you pick, you’re going to look GREAT! Still not feeling confident in straight leg jeans and want more shoe ideas? Comment below.

1. Wide-Brim Hats

2. Ballcap

3. Beret

4. Greek Fisherman Hat

Leopard Wide Brim Hat

Wide-Brim Hats

Wide-Brim Hats are some of my favorites. They are classic pieces that can really put some sass in your outfit and confidence in your step. This is a hat everyone needs to own. Being versatile, it can be styled multiple ways. Dress it up with a high waisted bodycon midi skirt and heels, or down with mom jeans and sneakers.

  1. The Drue Boater

  3. The Julian


Flat Brim Hat

Beret Hats

Go ahead and swap out your old beanie for a beret this fall season! Nothing to be afraid of! This little number can truly make you feel like a parisian with little effort. Try wearing on the back of your head with a slight tilt and you’ll look like you’re ready for the City of Lights! I suggest trying a monochromatic look with a beret to add that pop of color. I’ve paired mine with a leopard pattern coat and shirt dress.

  1. Molded Beret with Faux Leather Band
  2. Leopard Print Wool Beret


Molded Beret Hat
Leopard Ball cap

Ballcap Hats

A ballcap is the solution for the on-the-go girl. I mean, who has time to wash their hair anymore – am I right? At least for me it’s the best way to hide dirty hair (especially when I need to run to the grocery store and hope I don’t run into someone, lol). However, with a stylish ballcap like this “sleet” cap, I quickly change my mindset right around with confidence. I’ve paired by subtle leopard ball cap (sleet cap) with an oversized sweater and biker shorts.

  1. The Sleet Cap
  2. Wool Cap

Greek Fisherman Hat

Is it a cabbie hat? No, its a Greek Fisherman! Bet you didn’t even know this gem was an option, lol! This stylish hat isn’t just for your traditional sea captain. With a corduroy texture it’s perfect for fall or winter. Play up the texture by pairing with leather leggings and a denim style shirt.

  1. Greek Fisherman Cord Cap
  2. Faux Suede Fisherman Cap

3 Spring and Summer 2022 Fashion Trends That are Actually Worth Buying

Spring and Summer Fashion Trending Bubble Gum Pink Crochet Midi Dress

Does the warmer weather and things opening back up have you as excited as me? I’m ready to say “Hello Spring and Summer” and get back to being social! Here are three Spring Summer 2021 fashion trends I’ve been seeing on repeat, and you’ll actually want to wear this season.

Bright Pinks

Tired of the neutral trend and want to add a little color in your life? I don’t know about you, but I was loving the neutral outfit trend, because it’s a great way to extend your closet. Needless to say, I’m not afraid of a little color! And if you know me, I love PINK! I’ve looked around and bubble gum pink, fuchsia and hot pinks are IN! This bubble gum pink lace dress would look really cute with a straw hat. Don’t think you look good in pink? That’s ok, try another bold color to complement your skin tone this Spring! I dare you. Comment your favorite bold color to wear!

Spring and Summer Fashion Trend Hot Pink Spring Dress
Spring and Summer Fashion trending Hot Pink Leggings

Bubble or Puff Sleeve

The 80’s are BACK baby! And I’m not mad about it. The puff sleeve style has slowly been creeping back into mainstream fashion. This Spring trend has even creeped into swimsuits (wild, I know). I have to say, at first I was wary, but after seeing it a few times, it’s grown on me! Not sold just yet? Try a more subtle bubble sleeve first with some mom jeans. Give it a few wears and trust me, this Spring Summer 2021 fashion trend will grow on you too.

Puff Sleeve Top


Blue Eyelet Dress and Straw Crossbody Bag

Eyelet Print

When I think of spring or summer outfits, I immediately think of an eyelet top or dress! I don’t know about you, but I love this pattern. The texture really adds interest to any basic outfit. This is one warm weather trend that will never go out of style – in fact, you probably already have some eyelet pieces in your closet! If that’s the case, pull it out and dust it off this season! In case you don’t, I’ve linked quite a few options!

I know I’ll be wearing these Spring Summer 2021  fashion trends. Will you? Comment which of the three you’re most likely to wear and where you’ll be spotted in them? I think I’ll be spotted in a bubble gum pink dress at my next wedding!

Best Sun Hat for Hiking

Hiking is one of my favorite past times; especially alongside a crystal clear lake, a red dusty desert or a golden leaved forest trail. While a trail can be peaceful and serene, sunburn and bug bites are not. To keep the sun and bugs off your face and neck, try a hat with a moisture wicking sweatband:

  1. Women’s Active Sun Brim Hat (CTH8021OSTAN)
  2. Women’s Wide Brim Bucket OCW4706OSBLU
  3. Women’s Wide Brim Sun Hat with Under Brim Print (OCW4707)OCW4707OSGRY

Trendy Beach Hats

One thing I never want to forget while packing for the beach is my hat! I feel like the only way I can see on a sunny day at the beach is a hat and sunglasses. Not even to mention the sun protection it provides. I remember one time getting so sunburned on my face, the spray of water from the shower felt like needles. I’ll never make that mistake again! Next time, I’m packing one of these stylish beach hats:

  1. Women’s Boater W/ Scarf Bow (UBM4482)
  2. Women’s Soft Paperbraid Multi-Way Sun Hat with Oversized Brim (PBX5007)
  3. Womens Seagrass Gambler With Chiffon Band (SGM504)

Sun Hat with Chin Strap

Hats with a Chin Strap

Nothing’s worse than your hat flying off your head, especially on a windy day while trying to read a book on the beach, front porch, or dock. To avoid this happening, try a hat with an adjustable chin strap. Having a chin strap is convenient to be hands free (by tying around your neck and letting it drape down the back). Pick one of these adorable options to avoid losing your hat:

  1. Women’s Removable Chin Cord Ribbon Sun Hat (RBM5575OSBSH)
  2. Women’s Pinched Crown With Chin Cord (UBM420)
  3. Womens Ultrabraid Sun Brim Chin Cord UBM4453OSBRN

Quality Straw Sun Hat

Straw hats are one of the cutest ways to dress up an outfit. Whenever I style a spring or summer outfit and feel like something is missing, I reach for my straw hat. It’s one of those accessories that match most any outfit. One of my go-to outfits is a knotted t-shirt, mom jeans and straw hat! My favorite is a wide brim hat with a black or leather band, but try these options:

  1. Women’s Wheat Straw Wide Brim Boater (WSH1109)
  2. Women’s palm straw fedora with leather trim (MEF1015)
  3. Women’s wheat straw boater with faux leather band (WSH1203)

Visor Sun Hats

Visor Sun Hats

Don’t underestimate the power of a good visor. This type of hat keeps your head cool, especially during outdoor activities (tennis, golf, running, etc). It allows you to keep your hair off your neck on a hot humid day. It’s adjustable, which makes it a great option if you have a small or large head. Some have a roll up feature which makes packing simple! The visor is a classic and will come back year to year:

  1. Women’s Ultrabraid Animal Pattern Clip On Visor (UBV057)
  2. Artisan Made Palm Straw Braid Wide Brim Visor (MEV1009)
  3. Women’s Laser Cut Visor with Sizer and Sweatband (OCW4714)
