chambray style

Shirt, Phone Case, Dress, Flats, Skirt, Hair Bow, Scarf

Chambray has cemented itself as a spring staple that is here to stay. From shirts and skirts to scarves and shoes, chambray is being used in clothing and accessories alike. If you’re hesitant to try this trend, start with something small like a hair bow or flats before sporting a shirt or dress.

Day to day she lives and breathes the world of strategic communications, but in her spare time Kenzie enjoys learning new things in the kitchen, trying her hand at Pinterest DIYs and pursuing the perfect pair of jeans. She likes new places, great fiction, kick-ass boots, inspirational quotes and a good cup of coffee. Her worst fear in life? Wasting a great outfit on a boring day.

Picking out the perfect gift for your grad can be tougher than you think. Here are some thoughtful, practical gift ideas that any new grad will be sure to love and more importantly, use.

Ikea Gift Card // H&M Blazer // “Keys to the Kitchen” Cookbook  // iPad Mini // Personalized Necklace // Dr Seuss’ “Oh, the places you’ll go!” // Bullhorn Speaker

Life after college mostly consists of trying to survive in the real world. Help furnish your grad’s tiny apartment with an Ikea Gift Card.

Keep your grad looking sharp for job interviews with a professional looking blazer or shirt. This H&M Blazer is only $34.95.

And speaking of interviews: keep your grad walking confidently (that means no blisters!) with a pair of Fit in Clouds rollable flats.

Chances are, your grad has been living off their microwave and/or dining hall for the past 4 years. A fun cookbook- like Keys to the Kitchen, $23 on Amazon- is a great way to introduce them into the world of adulthood (and proper nutrition) once they’re out on their own.

If you’re looking to splurge a little on your grad, the iPad Mini ($299 from Walmart) is a great way to go. Whether it’s for keeping up with their Google Calendar or playing Angry Birds, they’ll be sure to love it.

This personalized necklace from Etsy is a creative and thoughtful way to celebrate your grad’s alma mater and graduation year. Priced at $49, you can customize this necklace any way you want.

Who doesn’t love a little nostalgia? Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” ($9.50 on Amazon) will encourage your grad to follow their post-college dreams, whatever they may be. Who knew a childhood book could be so insightful?

Little gadgets like this bullhorn speaker for the iPhone are always fun. If you’re looking for an affordable tech treat, this speaker is only $10!

It’s Graduation Week here at Fit in Clouds! Read up on what to bring to graduation and stay tuned for posts on the best grad gifts and a Weekly Roundup, grad edition!

graduation week

It’s graduation season! Whether you’re celebrating a loved one’s graduation or you’re a grad yourself, this is a day you’ll never forget. Wondering what to bring to graduation? Consider toting along the following:

what to bring to graduation

Nikon Digital Camera with Clutch Case // Forever 21 Sunnies // Victoria’s Secret Water Bottle // Makeup Forever Waterproof Foundation // Fit In Clouds Bronze Flats

There are a few things you’ll want to bring with you for the big day. A lot of graduations take place outside, so sunglasses are a must if you want to watch your friends walk across the stage without squinting. Waterproof makeup is the way to go to make sure your skin stays flawless through the heat (and the tears). Make sure you pack a water bottle to stay hydrated and keep a digital camera handy to snap pictures or take videos! Throw a pair of foldable flats in your bag in case your feet need a break.

Here’s to the class of 2013!

casual saturday outfit

Saturday is my favorite day of the week. I finally have some “me time” and can spend the day however I want. I usually do a bit of shopping, grab lunch with friends, and run some errands before settling down to relax. Comfortable flats are clearly a necessity for a casual Saturday – and this gold pair from Fit in Clouds are the perfect addition to this casual look!

It’s Cuatro de Mayo (May the fourth be with you, for all you Star Wars fans!), which means you have exactly one day to run out and stock up on supplies for one of the best holidays, in our opinion: Cinco de Mayo! Read up on the actual history of the day then get cracking on your party planning.

Cinco de Mayo Fun

The outfit: a Mexican-style embroidered shirt, simple jean shorts, and red sequin Fit in Clouds

The drinks: cilantro jalapeno margaritas served in a Joss & Main pitcher

The food: individually portioned 7 seven layer dip

The decor: embroidered pillows, DIY tissue paper garlands, and mini Mexican flags

The fun: a pinata, of course!

Headed to a Kentucky Derby or the actual Derby (lucky you!)? Get inspired for this over-the-top annual May event with preppy patterns, pale pinks, and, of course, a mint julep recipe.

Kentucky Derby Inspiration

Pick up a salmon Vineyard Vines Bits Printed Bow Tie for your beau and a coordinating clutch for yourself. Slick on light pink Chanel nail polish. Don a floppy flowered hat, flowery high heels, and a fun dress, like this pale pink lace one. Remember to sip plenty of water in between shots from that engraved Kentucky Derby shot glass and cranberry-colored Chambord Fleur de Lis cocktails! And don’t forget to pack a pair of silver patent Fit in Clouds in that clutch for when your feet need a break (especially after that last cocktail…).

CHAMBORD Fleur De Lis™ recipe

3/4 oz Finlandia® Vodka
2 oz lemonade
1 oz cranberry juice
Squeeze of lemon

Shake all ingredients with ice and pour into a tall glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a black raspberry.

She’s quirky, she’s spunky, she’s offbeat- she’s the New Girl! If doesn’t matter if you’re a long-time Zooey fan or just jumped on the bandwagon since seeing the Fox sitcom- you can steal her colorful vintage style with help from Fit in Clouds.

Steal Zooey's look

Red Zenggi cardigan // Norma Kamali cat eye sunglasses // Cole Haan skinny black belt // ModCloth patterned dress // red sequined Fit in Cloud rollable flats

Are you a fan of Zooey? Who is your favorite female celebrity du jour?
