be inspired - dream

Don't be afraid to dream big and say them out loud -> embrace them! Dreams are meant to come true if you're willing and ready to let them. 
Believe in Yourself.

mood board - neon brights

It's May! We're a little bit closer to warm sunny summer weather. It may not feel that way on this gloomy afternoon but we'll be soaking up the sun in our neon brights soon enough!

style strut snapshots - Le Chateau

I was recently invited to check out Le Chateau's Spring/Summer collection and share some of the great pieces that caught my eye. Before I continue let's state the obvious - I lack an iPhone with everyone's favorite app Instagram but I did manage to snap some photos (with my outdated Blackberry) of some fresh Spring/Summer wardrobe must-haves for every Style Strutter's closet! 

 Colored Denim $120

Glitter Sandals $79.95

In terms of style offering Le Chateau has really come a long way from the store I used to visit before every high school dance - admit it most of you did! They've updated their collections to appeal to a woman seeking key pieces, both classic and trendy, that will last countless seasons.  

My favorite finds were the glitter sandals and box clutch which seem to be everywhere this season. Truly the perfect evening clutch; spacious enough to carry everything you need (i.e. cell phone, lip gloss, cards/cash, etc.) yet small and structured that carrying it isn't a hassle and who doesn't love a little sparkle?
Another noteworthy item is the colorful denim. If you're going to give into one trend this summer please brighten up your day with a pair of colorful skinny jeans! Might I add that the fit is amazing!

A big thank you to Shawn at Le Chateau for the shopping invite!

be inspired

Letting go can be one of the greatest lessons you'll ever learn. Although it may take time, the freedom you feel once you do is like nothing else you've ever imagined. 
Never apologize for who you are and what you want.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
