I normally reserve rocker chic looks for colder months, so today I'm mixing it up! A concert look or a night out in warm weather. (This combo last week with camo and leather could also work.) More ideas below for achieving this type of look. What's your vote for rocker chic: only in the cold months, all seasons or never?

Today's Everyday Fashion: Waves & Gowns

I'm so thankful to have my wavy hair back! I cut 4 inches off a month ago and the waves came springing back to life! (To achieve this look, I put this mousse in it and let it air dry.) I've been growing it out to donate since October, but I caved and had to take some off this summer. The weight was making the waves MIA, and I couldn't take another day of heat processing in the heat. My new plan is to make the chop after the wedding this spring, before it gets hot again. I also broke my more than year-long streak of not putting any dye in my hair by adding a few scattered highlights. As for my outfit, this is my second attempt with this floral skirt and I like today's look even better than the first outfit

"I was wondering if you could do a segment on formal dresses under $150? I want my gown to reflect classic sophistication, but I'm having trouble finding anything classy - and floor length - in my price range." - Jacquelyn

Here are some under $150 options for Jacquelyn and anyone looking for a floor length gown for upcoming weddings or events! I'm especially loving the floral and cobalt options!

Today's Everyday Fashion: Landscape Prints

Beach scene top with fedora and shorts

I couldn't identify the proper name for these types of prints so for now I'm nicknaming them landscape prints. Each print illustrates a pretty landscape, like you could walk right into the scene they depict. I've always been attracted to them, although I believe this tank top is the first time I've ever bought one. It's an easy thing to throw on during the hot, hot days of summer. Now if only I could figure out a way to transport myself to the scene on my shirt!
