Okay, so, we can't change the weather. But we can update our closets. And that feels almost just as good as 60 degree weather (maybe better). Our spring look book gives you just the dose of spring you need to help you freshen up your wardrobe and get you through the winter.
Denim Dazed: Denim is still in this spring and we are oh so delighted. Denim pieces are easy yet chic. This dress is one of our favorites because it dons another trend sticking around for spring -- fringe. The small fringe detail on the sleeve is understated yet fun. This dress is also versatile. Lexy looks fab with it dressed up for a night out. Pair it with a flat sandal for a more casual look. And if you are eager to spruce up your closet like we are, pair this number with tights, booties and fedora, and wear it now.
The Deets: Fringe, lace ups and grommets--oh my. Bye, bye basic white tank! The grommets on this crop add just the right amount of edge to this top we swear you'll be recycling all spring long (super soft alert). Fringe is a trend that isn't going away any time soon and we are stoked. The fun fringe detail on the vegan leather skirt and necklace add drama and flair--and who doesn't love a little drama from time to time? Let's not forget these heels. Lace up heels make every thing look that much cooler. P.S. - Look out for lace up everything. Shoes, tops, dresses...it will be every where this spring.
Textured Whites: This off-the-runway trend is one of our favorites for spring. Lexy's top has a festival flare while still being sophisticated and structured. The detail makes it special, perfect paired with your favorite denim, tucked in a maxi, or paired with a sleek pant for the work day. This is a spring wardrobe staple. And stay tuned for more textured white in dresses, too.
This is just a small dose of what spring has to offer! Other notable trends...platforms, bright colors like pink and orange, belts, shoulder cut outs. Favorites like boho, fringe, and tie dye will live another season. We're cool with that, to say the least.
Every time I see Sarah, I can't help but stare. And you would, too -- her makeup is always flawless. Flawless. She has hands down mastered the art of looking natural and perfect at the same time. So I asked her to show us step by step how she achieves her daily look. This week, Sarah is showing us how to do our face makeup. Next week -- eyes and eyebrows. Plus the products Sarah swears by.
So be sure and check back!
Big or small, hyper or laid back, soft or scruffy, here at Maude, we love dogs. We love dogs so much we thought we'd tell you about a few of our own. Friends, meet the #maudedogsquad.
We love when our model Ashley sports her lovely locks in a milk maid braid. Not only does it show off her outfit, it frames her face beautifully. Since winter weather can quickly dampen your 'do, we think rocking a milkmaid braid this NYE is the perfect solution. Check out our tutorial below for step by step instructions.
STEP 2: Pull braid vertically by the end. Secure with hair band.
STEP 3: Hold braid where it begins at your scalp, and pull it across the crown of your head.
STEP 4: Secure the middle of the braid and end of the braid with bobby pins.
STEP 5: Complete the same steps with the other braid, pulling it in front of the first braid.
STEP 6: Tuck tail end of the second braid under the first braid.
STEP 7: Have edgy, beautiful, worry-free hair all night long!
Sarah is wearing our Sheer Texture Peplum Top $45.90 // Winter White Pencil Skirt $45.90 // Fold Over Quilted Clutch $45.90 // Snake Chain Tassel Necklace $25.90 // Harp Strappy Seychelles Heel $99.99
The first time we met was actually in college on New Years Eve at the Sig Ep House. I remember telling my friend that it was a shame he wasn't better looking because he was so talented. We met again five years later and the rest is history.
We don't have a song but we both really love John Mayer.
I love when he sings Falling Again.
I have cried every single time and I don't know what it is that happens but I think it's because I am so proud of him that I just start crying. It is definitely one of those ugly cries too. (We highly doubt that.)
Gwen, she is the most beautiful person I have ever seen in real life. She is prettier in person than she is on TV and even then she still looks gorgeous.
It has been really incredible. The best part has been seeing Barrett finally get recognition for doing what he loves and works really hard at. He is working all the time whether it is writing, playing, or practicing he is always doing something. The hardest part has been being away from one another we aren't used to that. He has had to be gone for several days or weeks at a time and the kids and I really miss him.
It has been unbelievable.
We took the kids to the pumpkin patch for Halloween and we couldn't get out of there without people asking Barrett for photos and then people wanting pictures with all of us. It was just bizarre because he had only been on once or twice at that point. I think he his an advantage being the only contestant from Arkansas. It has been really humbling to have people support us especially when they don't know us.
Ha. I'm still trying to figure that out! I have always gone for comfort and have never been super into hair and make-up but after having kids I felt like I needed to look cute but still wear something functional. I love solid colors like black and gray. My go to is good pair of jeans with a statement necklace.
Thanksgiving because of the food.
I tend to do that little dance move where you put your hands in the air and close your eyes, whatever that is.
