The Out Ride

Every now and then, it’s nice to have some fun with fashion! Today was one of those days. I found a Free People “Angel Lace dress” which is so beautiful and delicate and almost looks hand-woven. Along with the dress, I am wearing a Free People “Weave Away Fringed Crochet Hoodie” which, I really felt completed the look with my tan studded boots. It was a super sunny, very windy day with blue skies all around, so I spent the morning surrounded by beauty. This look inspired me to go back to the stables to hang out with Lindsay and Natalina. I am really grateful to Lindsay for her support and taking time out of her busy schedule to allow me to shoot this look with Natalina who looked truly amazing in her custom made crystal bridle, she is a true beauty and definitely loves her carrots. I would recommend wearing this dress to a festival, like Coachella, however it is extremely versatile and very soft, not only in its fabric but visually as well and can be worn as an everyday dress.

With Love,
Candy Dylan

Beyonce On the Run

It’s hard to imagine what perfection can come from the two people who largely influence the music we listen to today, and within different genres.
Yet that’s exactly what Jay Z and Beyonce have done over and over again and there are no signs of them slowing down anytime soon. Both were “On the Run,” last night as they kicked off their long anticipated tour.
While Miami weather threatened thunderstorms over the Sun Life stadium fans poured in to experience one of the world’s greatest poets of our time alongside his other half, whose vocals are arguably the greatest in the business and world today. Together, their performance complemented each other and without question, proved why they are the artists they are and that they are as strong together as they are apart.

Beyonce wore an unbelievable wardrobe that were truly a dream for anyone that breathes for fashion. Some of the stand-outs were designs by Diesel and Atelier Versace.

Shoes in the Sand

Today, was an amazing day. I spent the morning at a local stables “Sunshine Meadows” in Delray Beach. The property is beautiful starting from the “Welcome Back” sign through the winding sand roads which takes you on a journey in what seems to be so far from the city of Boca Raton. The stables, which are tucked far back off the main road, are surrounded by some of the most gorgeous green trees, jumper rings, a race track and paddocks, is home to around six hundred horses and offer amazing facilities for both horse and owner as well as horse riding lessons.

Lindsay who is a seasoned equestrian and highly respected trainer was so kind enough to let me spend time and shoot this casual look with her horse Frankie, who was far from shy when it came to the picture taking and having some fun.

It was clear by the way that everyone interacted with each other at Sunshine Meadows that this was more like a family than fellow equestrians and I can`t thank everyone one enough for allowing me to sink my heels in to the sand :).

For this shoot I wanted a more rustic casual feel and chose destroyed jeans with a loose sleeveless T-shirt and paired it with a leather jacket and belt to finish the look.

I hope you all love this look as much as I do!

With Love
Candy Dylan

LittleBlackDress

It’s always nice to get dressed up, and one of my favorite things to turn to is a Little Black Dress. I’m always on the look-out because I don’t think a girl can EVER have enough! (And We all know how I love to change it up ).There are so many different styles of the LBD,one to suit your every mood, for example, the Nasty Gal Slip Away Dress which is casually cool and soft or the Nasty Gal Alter Midi Dress, which is sleek chic and sexy.

The dress I am wearing today is a cotton stretch dress that has a thick waisted belt with a slight gold detail. It’s sleeveless and perfect for the hot summer months I was going for more of a classic look today which I do fancy once in awhile and to my surprise, It was quite the head-turner. I kept this dress simple because it was quite hot and I was going to be outdoors for a lot of the evening but to style this dress differently, I would easily replace the thick belt with a thinner and looser belt, add a floppy, casual hat and instead of a heel, wear flats.. and could even go as far as adding a floral Kimono which is really trending right now.

I hope you are all enjoy the spring as much as I am.

With Love,
Candy Dylan

The Over- all look !

I always have fun preparing and shooting these looks:) I have so much joy choosing the clothes and I love going through all the pictures and picking my favorites to share with you. I have so many great ideas to share in the future. Often times, I have these grand ideas that sometimes just don’t come out quite the way I had hoped.
I was really excited about today`s look from the start. I love finding different pieces and putting them together and choosing a perfect location so it all makes sense. It was a REALLY windy day so the balloons where all over the place ! I wasn’t sure how the pictures were going to turn out but the outcome was amazing. I am wearing one of the trendier pieces out right now, “The Overalls ” which are a skinny fit and destroyed (so unexpected of me ) I rolled up the bottoms to show off more of my heels and left one strap off the shoulder to show off my smiley face Tee. The colors of the location and the balloons really made it all come together to make the look really pop. Just another cool way to wear jeans !

With love,
Candy Dylan

Good Ol’ T-shirt and Jeans

There is nothing more versatile than a good ol’ t-shirt and jeans. You can do pretty much anything with either, short of a cocktail party. I love that there is so much room for experimentation and ability to express yourself in a pair of jeans. Let’s see we have the flare, the boot, the skinny and the destroyed all of which you can cut up, roll up, destroy and dye! You have permission to do whatever you want and nobody will ask questions, regardless of style preference. T-shirts give us a comfortably factor and the freedom to feel free. The tee is simple and yet we steal them from our boyfriends, sleep in them, slip them over bathing suits, tuck them in our jeans, or wear nothing but. We cut them off, roll them up, or tie them up, just like we do with jeans and the best part is they look so darn good! If you’ve read my previous post you will know, I mentioned that I wanted to share different ways to style jeans and t-shirts. Today’s look has a little edge to it. I’m wearing a large V-neck T- for a much looser look which happens to be very soft and utterly comfortable, with jeans which are slightly destroyed so you can only imagine how delicious they will be over time. I finished the look off with a leather jacket and assorted silver bracelets

Making the Cut

It seems that everywhere I turn, there are lots of girls with some sort of short hair look. It’s so daring and I’m jealous of anyone that can pull it off. I on the other hand would rather hide under my sheets at the thought. I admit that I have considered it from time to time, when I get really ballsy, which honestly only lasts as long as it takes to get the scissors out. I actually wouldn’t know what to do without my long locks and the thought of losing them is quite frankly, devastating.

However if you are one of those fearless girls or want to change styles, there are so many great looks to choose from – and the best part is that the short hair styles are great for all face shapes!
I have included some that I think are truly amazing. The first to chop her locks was Karlie Kloss and you may recall how upset Victoria Secret fans were over her new sexy do. Jennifer Aniston who is the only actress that has women just as interested in her hair as her movies and always looks flawless, no matter what. Giuliana Rancic then chopped off her long locks after her becoming a mom and she looks elegant and chic. And, then there is Jennifer Lawrence, who looked unbelievably gorgeous and classic at the Oscars with her short look. Beyonce introduced her sexy short cut while opening at the Grammys.

Sure one of these will work for you ;)

A Little Country

There is something so glorious about being out in the open surrounded by serene green trees sand roads and sounds of nothing but horses and birds chirping. Today, I had so much fun shooting for this post away from the traffic of the everyday hustle and bustle, and spending time in horse country where, I actually feel quite at home since that’s where I spent a great deal of my childhood. I’ve always had a connection to the country, although I cannot stay away from the city for too long, it is a great place for a quick getaway.
My outfit today is laid back. I’m wearing a knit crop top paired with favorite destroyed jeans and boots with matching belt to set the mood along with an assortment of brackets to finish the look.

With Love,
Candy Dylan

Roll Em’ Up

I love the simplicity of just being able to get out of bed and put on a pair of jeans, roll them up and walk out the door. It seems a lot of us have fallen in love with this idea and even more so with the look it has created. Something so simple has been turned into something different and it’s really something I love most about fashion-  the freedom to be creative, try new things, explore ideas that could soon become a trend, that sweeps us up and allows us to share one piece that is transformed by each of us individually. Today’s look is “easy” – my favorite pair of old Hollister Jeans that have been destroyed overtime, a simple T-Shirt and sandal heels. There are millions of ways to style your rolled up jeans, with layering, adding a jacket or even with flats or boots.  In my next few posts, you will see different jean options to give you ideas on how to style denim.  So stay tuned !

With Love,
Candy Dylan
