This look is a great update to the whole double denim phenomenon. By staying with a deep, dark denim in a floral print, the outfit becomes a more elevated and grown up version of a daytime classic.

A comfy and carefree way to add a pop of floral is through a floral maxi skirt. Keep the look laidback with the addition of a shrunken tee or sweater and pair with heeled sandals.

Inspired By: Late Winter Layers

It seems to happen to us around this time every year. We’re stuck in this in-between season hoping for warmer weather, looking at our spring pieces longingly while Mother Nature insists on keeping winter around for a bit longer.

To get through this weird not-quite-spring phase while staying bundled up, we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled on the streets for stylish layering masters to keep us inspired. Today’s street style muse takes a cute A-line skirt and layers on a denim jacket under a military-inspired coat. Add in opaque black tights, combat boots and a soft beanie, and you too can to tackle the in-between season like this true pro!

Cruisin’- 9 Plus Size Picks for An Amazing Spring Break

It's hard to believe that spring break is about to start, as well as the height of resort and cruise season--especially when I just looked through my Facebook feed, and almost all of my friends' pictures are of snow or comparison shots of their kids or dogs next to massive piles of snow. Or just…snow. 

With my role in the Zappos Customer Loyalty Team, I get to talk to people every day who are heading for warmer climes. Florida and the Bahamas seem to be the most popular places people are heading to this year to get out of the cold.

A change in latitude can be an amazing thing for the attitude, and there is nothing that makes you feel better, and gets you ready for spring and all its new beginnings, like a new wardrobe piece that is bright, colorful, and wonderfully feminine and flirty.

Try a fabulous dress in bright colors or a great new bathing suit that accentuates your best assets and makes you feel like Hollywood royalty. Armed with spring hottest bright hues, you will be ready for that warm weather when it finally arrives- or when you arrive to your snow-free destination!

The Running List: Top-Ranking Running Shoes

Welcome back friends! Now that you are all experts and know what type of running shoe is best for you, I have made some selections for the best specific running shoe for each category: Netural, Trail, Stability, and Track and Field. For those that may need a little refresher of last month’s blog, please check it out here!

As I mentioned before, I wish there was one shoe that I could recommend that would be the best running shoe for you. Unfortunately, there is no magic shoe that is right for everyone. I suppose it isn’t such a bad thing, as then I would have nothing to write about and be out of a job just kidding, they don’t pay me for this gig, but I digress…

In reality, there are actually thousands of possible running shoes for every type of runner. It may seem like a daunting challenge, but think of it as a fun way to start with a few umpteen shoes in your virtual shopping cart, knowing  you get to whittle down the general selection to just  a few choice pairs - sort of like The Bachelor, but for running shoes!  

Now that we have made our Rose Selection, or whatever it is that they do on The Bachelor, (sorry, I actually do not watch the show but have heard good things) it is important to keep in mind exactly why these shoes will be important. For anyone serious about running,  (generally characterized by running three or more times a week) a good running shoe will be able to provide support in the correct places and spaces, cushioning where needed, motion control, and flexibility. In short, the perfect running shoe will act as an extension of your individual foot, hopefully allowing you to run longer, farther, and to places you have never been before!

Without further ado, I provide you my top three selections of running shoes based upon customer ratings, overall technical features, best sellers and functionality in these specific categories:

athletic shoes, finding the right running shoes, neutral running shoes, runners, running, running footwear, running shoes, stability running shoes, track-and-field shoes, trail running shoes, zappos running

Neutral:

1. Under Armour UA Speedform Apollo GR

2. Inov-8 F-Lite™ 240

3. Nike Flex Experience Run 3

 

Trail:

4. Salomon XR Mission W

5. Montrail Bajada™

6. La Sportiva Vertical K Men’s

Stability:

7.  ASICS Gel-Kayano® 21

8. Newton Running Kismet

9. Brooks Addiction™ 11

Track and Field:

10. Puma TFX Spring v5

11. New Balance Spike

12. Saucony Carrera XC

Until next time, happy trails, roads and other unchartered terrains! :)
