I love her tips for how to pack for spring break..


After a long winter, it feels like spring break can’t come soon enough! Typically, we’re facing at least a few weeks of fashion limbo, when it’s too warm for a coat, too cool for a sundress – but your sunshine-soaked spring break is calling! These spring break travel fashion trends show you a few ways to “spring up” your winter wear, winterize your spring wear or maybe just invent a whole new season altogether: Happy “Sprinter,” everyone!

Ready for Spring Break Travel

Get ready for spring break travel!

White jeans and capris can be dressed up or down – a great choice as the seasons transition. Embroidered or embellished tops are a sure way to bring in all the seasonal bright colors, especially in an off-the-shoulder blouse to keep you cool. Add texture and an organic feel. That looks especially springy and on-trend to any outfit with a touch of woven straw. Even the most delicate of silver jewelry can make a statement, like drop earrings, a beaded bracelet and long chain necklace. Then just grab a hat, your tinted sunglasses and a fabulous, beach-ready tote!

Office to Airport

Go straight from the office to the airport

As soon as hot weather approaches, the basic rules of work-appropriate dress quickly become unbearable, right? A loose-fitting top with on-trend bell sleeves and ruffles will keep you cool. Plus, a little bit of outfit planning up front will save you precious vacation time on Friday: Just swap out your work pumps for a pair of sweet slides, and you can head out. (Bonus: You can show off your super-cute mint pedi toes all weekend long!)

Pop of Coral

Add a pop of coral, the season’s hottest hue

One of the biggest fashion trends for spring and summer 2018 is CORAL! And coral is one of those colors I never get tired of seeing, with its pinkish overtones and orange undertones. It’s positively lovely and looks great with shades of blue and our new Diamond Straw Weave! This summery shade lends itself to a bit of fun, so why not add a splash of the season’s hottest fruit: pineapples! You can find this sweet symbol decorating everything from jewelry and accessories to novelty print totes this season. With so many fun ways to wear coral, I hope you’re inspired to infuse it into your own wardrobe this spring!

Casual Spring Travel Layers for Him

Try casual spring travel layers for him

Spring and summer of 2018 will be a season of contrasts in men’s fashion. You’ll see a mash-up of couture hikers, nineties streetwear and stylish sea breeze looks. Casual, comfortable, lightweight and loose-fitting are important elements for menswear this season. And don’t forget functionality: Every guy needs a great weekend travel bag so he can swing home on a Friday, grab some gear and hit the road!

The winter-to-spring transition can be a freeing moment! Wool gives way to cotton, black to bright (or better yet, coral) and boots to something strappy – something to have you itching to dig your toes into the sand. Embrace it, and enjoy your well-deserved spring break in style!

Summer Kick Off Party

A new month and LOTS of newness in Thirty One.  I am so blessed to be part of a company which helps us reach new heights every month and this month is NO exception.

I am so excited to see not only Flip Flops come back but also some of our favorite retired products with a fresh new look….

As a result of my AMAZING customers, I again have the opportunity to present “Promising Picks” which is how products are tested to be featured in future catalogs.  The only way to order Promising Picks is through a party….. Hmm?  Maybe it is time for a 31 minute Facebook Party or a catalog party or a trunk party or a home party?

My new Facebook parties have me LIVE with you and your friends for 31 minutes highlighting YOUR top 10 favorite products. A personal shopper coming right into your home. I will go live at the designated time for some fun and games then we close your party within 48 hours of the LIVE event.  Easy peasy, right? No fuss. No mess.
