Fashionable Friday: Shorts!

It's about that time for another Fashionable Friday: Shorts! I am your guest hostess, Amanda from Fashionista On A Dime! The temperature is starting to rise and outdoor activities are multiplying.  Let's explore some comfortable and stylish options for you to enjoy. ♥



It's important to select shorts with durable fabric like, denim in order to keep up with your busy lifestyle with the kids.  Play up your tops with vibrant and colorful prints to welcome in Summer!  Old Navy has multiple choices to suit your taste and budget.  Last but not least, a neutral sandal (like the one above) perfectly blends print and denim together for a cohesive and fashionable look. I hope you enjoyed another Fashionable Friday: Shorts tutorial! See you next Friday! <3 Amanda @ Fashionista On A Dime

Fashionable Friday: Swimsuits

Good Morning, Ladies! Amanda here from Fashionista On A Dime! It's about that time again to dive into Fashionable Friday: Swimsuits. The weather is getting warmer and the kiddies are probably wanting to swim at the beach or play in the pool. Why not look fashionable while you're out playing with the kids?  Now, I know many of you out there want to skip this post altogether but trust me, you'll look like one hot mama once you learn how to conceal your problem-area and play up your assets!!

Big Bust? Use a Banded Halter!
Avoid Triangle Tops They Don't Provide Support!

Avoid Solid Colors

-Option #2-

Sexy Patterned One-Piece w/Draping Around the Hips!

Pear Shaped? Incorporate Flirty Tops & Casual Bottoms!
Avoid Boy Shorts & Detailed Bikini Bottoms

Small Bust? Use Bandeau Tops!
Avoid bikini tops with too much fabric or have a poor fit

Spring is a time for parties, events, baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, you name it! It's the perfect opportunity to look polished and show off your baby bump!
This dress works for so many occasions because of its chic pattern, classic yet comfortable fit; accented with a pop of red. Prepare to stun!

These flats are great for comfort! Punch up your dress or re-wear withjeans or a flirty skirt, to achieve a gorgeously glam look. American Eagle flat features a pretty peep toe, elegant cut-out details and a padded insole for comfort.

Punch up the 'wow' factor by adding classic hoop dangled earrings that bring out the red in this outfit. They're totally affordable and all you need for a dress with a busy print. They're very lightweight and top off your gorgeous look for any ocassion you go to this Spring!
