Week's Best Looks June 16th 2013.

Another week gone bye and here we are on the last day of the week, on Sunday. It is also Father's Day - another Holiday we don't celebrate here in Albania however I am half American so of course I wished My Husband. It is after all his first Father's Day. So, I Hope all Dads out there are having/had a Great Father's Day!! 

Overall, has it been a good week for you? It has been a Great Week for me as I have mentioned, as well. But today is ALL ABOUT FASHION, STYLE, FASHIONISTAS, THE LATEST TRENDS, NEW BLOGS I DISCOVERED & GORGEOUS OUTFITS. So let's move on to a Fresh Sunday of Week's Best Looks. This week is 'all over the place' as far as trends & outfits go. The Maxi is still going very strong as we have it in Colorful Prints as well as in Black+White Stripes (several for this last one). We have quite a few Black+White Stripped Dresses, especially Maxi ones. But we also have Stripes in the Blue family, including 2 Maxi Skirts & a Tank Maxi Dress. We have a little bit of Water-color & Paint-like Prints this week, in a few of our Dresses. We also have 2 Beautiful Floral Dresses in the mix, one featuring a Hi-lo Hem. Other Prints include a little bit of Chevron, Ikat, Tie-Dye & Polka Dots. We also have 2 Chambray Dresses. As far as Hemlines, besides the Hi-lo trend we have a Scalloped Dress and even 2 Skorts featuring Triangle Kerchief Hemlines. Speaking of Skirts, besides Maxi Skirts we have some Pencil Skirts as usual and not 1 but 3 Gorgeous Lace/Crochet White Skirts both paired with Elegant Blouses. We also have 2 Stunning Floral Skirts & 2 Skater Skirts. There are a few Shorts this week too and I am loving the Fringe ones & the Floral pair the most. Blazers are popping up: Navy, Tangerine, White, Stripped, Jean Jackets. The Shirts & Tops are all Different this week, however 2 Fabulous Fashionistas styled their Polka Dot Chambray Shirts in 2 different ways, each staying true to their Styles. As far as Jewelry: Gemstone Necklaces, Turquoise or Aqua Necklaces are the Most Popular ones this week. Gold-Chain & Pave Bracelets are the most popular trends in Bracelets. As usual we have many Handbags, mostly Fun Clutches and even a couple of the Classic Quilted Channels. We also have a few Hats this week, mostly the wide-brimmed, Floppy Style, definitely Summery. We also see a Pretty Identical Fedora a few times (worn by 2 different Ladies). The Shoes featured are mostly Flat, Cute, Girly Sandals. But we also have Wedges & Pumps especially in Gold & Nude. Some Ladies are wearing Very Bright Sandals & Stilettos in colors like Hot Pink, Cobalt & Orange. We have a few of the Popular Lace-up Stilettos, too. Last but not least it is Sunny out there, Sunglasses are being worn in almost half of the Outfits.

This week I would love to Welcome 13 new Ladies to this feature. I happen to find new blogs daily and sometimes it may just be an accessory, a pretty face, a Polyvore set, an outfit or all of the above that attract me. We also have a lot of 2nd and 3rd timers this week. There are some of the popular faces whose blogs I read on a daily basis, too. As far as unique names we have a Yulissa, a Whitley, a Pia, a Brie, a Bree and an Inge in the mix. The most Popular Name this week is Lauren (3 of them). We also have 2 of each of the following: Megan, Heather, Rita.

I, also had such a hard time choosing Favorite Outfits and narrowing down to 60 Looks so 10 Beautiful Ladies have 2 Outfits chosen, this week. Because of this I didn't chose a Week's Best Dressed, just a Most Favorite Look which is totally Nautical - what I am feeling lately. If you like this Post, if you or someone you know is featured here, please make sure to mention something on your blog & link back. Thank You for Reading & have a Great New Week!!

This Week's Best Look/Most Favorite Outfit belongs to LYDDIE of Chic on the Cheap.
Lyddie is traveling Light & traveling in Style in this Outfit. She has the Navy, Nautical Appeal head to toe. She paired a Boat-neck, White+Navy Stripped Top by Old Navy, tucked into a Red Pencil Skirt by Express & Gold, Woven Sandals by Enzo Angolini. She didn't forget about the Accessories either: a Crossbody Bag with a Gold Chain Link matching her Gold Chain Bracelet & other Bangles, plus Gold Watch. She also wore a Dainty Necklace, Rhinestone+Gold-framed Anchor Studs & a Simple Fedora Hat. She looked so Chic, Elegant, Polished & ready for a Yacht, Cruising or a Beach Vacation.

My Own Favorite Look of the Week is a tie between:
These Mixed Black+White Prints created a Fun, Simple, Chic, Elegant Look for a Mom on the go like Myself. I added a little bit of Nature's Colors through my Green Ballet Flats & Blue Tank Top. And I Love this Skirt - one of My Favorites I own, plus it has pockets.

This is Yellow Neon Head to Toe but I loved it & so did you. I am faking a Shorts' Suit and I am showing lots of Leg just a little after giving birth, but I think I pulled it off since my body is back to the pre-pregnancy weight. I felt Confident, Colorful & Summery in this.

Which Look is Your Favorite this Week?
