Even though I’m on the petite side, I’ve always had curves. When I was younger, I hated my hips and larger booty. But as I got older, I learned to celebrate my curves. I think a lot of that had to do with the shift from ’90s waifs as my roll models to women of all shapes and sizes we currently have gracing the covers of magazines. Well, that and Jennifer Lopez. Thank goodness for JLo!

I was thrilled to discover Cacique Intimates. The brand is all about love of curves and empowers and supports women of all shapes and sizes through their playful lingerie. As we enter warmer months, I’ve been looking for cotton lingerie sets I can wear with my button-downs and jeans. I fell in love with this gingham t-shirt bra. The print is so adorable and the push up style gives me confidence with my smaller chest. Luckily, the matching cotton thong has stretch so it fits comfortably on my curvier bottom. I hate when panties dig into my hips!

Cacique Imitates has an extensive range of sizes, going from 0-28 and 32A-46J. They really are a brand for all women! I rounded up some more lingerie sets below that I’ve been eyeing. Use coupon code SHOPCQ10 to get a Cacique Intimates bra for only $29.50 (valid thru 6/16 online only)!

I’m so excited to be teaming up with Ann Taylor this week for my Styling With Sydne Series. They have such timeless pieces that you can wear for every occasion. Since summer is just around the corner, I wanted to style one of my favorite classic looks: the white suit. I took their white linen suit and by simply switching up my top and accessories, I came up with six different outfit ideas that work for the office, the weekend and a night out.

See all the looks on my IGTV channel!

Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer. And whenever I think summer fashion, white eyelet always comes to mind. There is something so fresh about the cotton with it’s cutout designs. I love white eyelet dresses, sets or pairing eyelet skirts with tees and eyelet top with denim shorts or jeans.

When I was with my friends up in San Luis Obispo, I wore this white eyelet set (also available in a dress version). It perfectly matched the cute white cutout staircase by our room at Madonna Inn. I love when you unintentionally match the decor! The wind was out in full force that day but I didn’t mind because the ruffles blew beautifully in the California breeze. I generally pair white eyelet with neutrals, especially during summer. Here are some more pieces I’m eyeing now for Memorial Day weekend….

As for what to do on Memorial Day? I have no clue yet. I just got back from Paris and I’m so jet lagged! Right now the only thing I can think of is bed. But hopefully a white party will come up (or I’ll plan a dress code with my friends) so I can wear my white eyelet!

Before I left for Paris, the biggest question I got was, “What am I going to pack for Paris?”. I shared my packing tips during a dog park chats on my Insta Stories (you can always find them on my highlights reel to catch up). Since I didn’t have time to do a packing video before my trip, I filmed everything I packed as I wore the outfits.

Watch my Paris travel outfit diary on IGTV!

 
When it comes to what to wear to Paris in May, packing is tricky. Springtime weather in Paris is fickle. One day it might be pouring, the next day the sun will be shining. When I looked at the weather before I left, it said mostly 60s. Of course, that changed when I arrived. Luckily, there was a Zara right next to my hotel so I was able to pick up sweaters and cardigans to layer.

Here is my list of must-haves when packing for Paris in Spring:

  • Rain coat – I ordered this beige trench coat right before I left and wore it almost every day. I highly recommend getting one with a hood (mine is removable).
  • Scarves – Tying a scarf around your neck or hair instantly makes an outfit look more chic. Plus, they’re super easy to pack!
  • Blazer – Aside from a rain coat, the jacket I wore most was my white blazer. You can throw a blazer over a t-shirt and jeans to dress up the casual look and wear blazers over dresses or jumpsuits to dinner.
  • Sweaters & Tees – I wish I had packed more sweaters! I picked up thin cardigan sets to layer, which I wore through the rest of my trip in Europe. I’d layer thin tees underneath to keep warm.
  • Sneakers – Paris is a walking city. Aside from dinners and a fancy lunch, I wore sneakers every single day.
  • Jeans – I left my distressed denim back in California and instead brought more classic styles to Paris. They’re easier to dress up and down for day to night.
  • Bags – Make sure whatever purse you bring closes shut. If you’re visiting any touristy spots, you have to be very careful of getting pick-pocketed. I brought a backpack and a couple of cross body bags (if you watched my Insta Stories, you know I bought a few bags while I was there, too!).
  • Dresses – We went to a few fancy restaurants, where I was able to wear dresses and jumpsuits. If you’re not a dress girl, black pants and a nice top are also appropriate.

For Paris outfit inspiration, you can check out my video on everything I wore… and shop all the looks below!

In this week’s Styling with Sydne IGTV video I’m showing 8 ways to wear a pleated skirt. I love pleated skirts because you can wear them from work into the weekend. I’ve worn a ton over the years  (I’ll link to a few examples at the end of the post in case you want to check them out). I just got this lavender pleated skirt and brought it with me to Paris. So to prep for my trip, I came up with a bunch of outfit ideas on how to wear it.

Also, if you’re looking for a good bralette, I ordered this bandeau top to film my videos. It’s only $10 and is a great nude color to wear under sheer tops and dresses.

If you haven’t already, you can watch the full video on my IGTV channel.

When the weather heats up, I live in v-neck camisoles. I have them in so many colors, and always find myself adding new ones to my wardrobe whenever a new color is available. I usually wear them with a strapless bra but recently I’ve been trying out something new: layering a lace bralette underneath.

Having a little lace peek out underneath a camisole gives it a whole new look. Plus, bralettes are so incredibly comfy! And I’m not the only one who thinks so. When my photographer, Michelle, showed up to my house to shoot some blog posts I started hysterical laughing. She was wearing a lace bralette under a cami, too!

So I had Michelle take a break from being behind the camera and join me in today’s blog post. I gave her a pair of statement earrings (we were shooting for the blog after all!) and show off her layering skills.

I’ve been wearing this crochet lace bralette non-stop. I like matching it to my white cami and now I need to add more colors to my wardrobe so I can match it with my other camisoles. I’m all about matchy-matchy everything. I definitely see the black lace bralette under my black cami for a night one. I suppose I know what’s next on my list!

Michelle swears by this lace bralette. Since the lace is lower, it’s a more subtle way to have your lingerie peek out. So you can mix and match it with different colors. How cute is her micro stripe camisole? It’s no longer available online but I found a bunch more stripe cami options here.

Do you find yourself showing up to places in similar outfits as your friends? I feel like this keeps happening to me more and more! First it was Michelle, and then just the other day Jessica and I showed up to dinner in olive tops and black jeans. I did some research and apparently it’s a thing. I always found this cute quote on the matter:

Friendship is…

Unintentionally wearing exactly the same clothes.

I wanted to expand on one of the subject we chatted about in a recent dog park chat on Insta Stories:

How do you deal with negative social media comments?

I learned very early on in my career, that you have to take negative comments with a grain of salt. The first time I learned this was when I was working as a fashion editor at Style Network. We did a campaign where I had to model a skin tight sweater dress, which was posted on the network’s Facebook page. Two of the comments were in direct contradiction. One person said I looked anorexic. Another commented that my ass was fat.

At first, I was offended. I didn’t understand why strangers could be so mean! But the more I sat with the negative comments, the more I realized how ridiculous they were. Should I be eating a burger? Or should I be on a juice cleanse? I did neither, and went about my day on my regular diet

Over the years, I’ve become more confident with my body and try not to let other people’s opinions get me down. But it’s not just body shaming that goes on. I get weekly comments that I’m ugly, I look old, my outfits are dumb, etc, etc, etc.

In order to not get depressed about negative social media comments, I’ve developed two plans of reaction: 1) Kill it with kindness. And 2) Delete and ignore.

kill it with kindness

Killing it with kindness works when a comment is more of a criticism that is simply written in a way that could have been nicer. For example, someone complaining about the way a video is edited or saying that they only like one of the outfits you feature in a slideshow.

With these comments, I generally respond with something short and sweet. I thank them for their suggestions or tell them I’ve noted their ideas. I would say 9 times out of 10, the person responds kindly. I even had one commenter apologize for her initial brash comment, explaining she was having a bad day.

You just have to remember, not everyone is good at communicating. Maybe the comment came from a positive place but was executed in a not so kind manner. Generally, adding a positive spin, aka killing it with kindness, brings positive back to your comment chain.

delete and ignore

Sometimes comments are downright nasty. In these cases, I find there is no point of responding. I simply delete them and move on. I’ve learned that there are people in the world who are unhappy with themselves, and in return try to bring their pessimism upon others. Their negative comments usually aren’t a reflection of you, they’re more about how they feel about themselves.  It doesn’t benefit me to engage in a negative back and forth so I simply take myself, and my feelings, out of the equation.

let’s spread the kindness

As an experiment, I asked my #ssInstaFam to leave a positive comment on a stranger’s Instagram post. Just like a negative comment can put a damper on your day (if you let it!), a positive comment can bring happiness. It’s such a simple exercise and I find brings me a lot of joy.

And with that, I leave you with this cute quote I found on Pinterest. I’m not sure who said it but it’s a great reminder anytime a pesky comment enters your feed:

“Ignore negative people and negative comments.

They are like mosquito bites:

awkward but irrelevant.”

Now that the weather is heating up, I find myself reaching for my straw bags more and more often. They’re so versatile! I’ve curated quite the collection over the years. Yet I still find myself eyeing new straw bags I feel like I need in my closet.

Luckily, the straw handbag trend is super affordable. I found ten options all under $50!

Looking for outfit inspo on what to wear with a straw bag? Here are some ideas…

I always find myself reaching for a straw bag with my summer whites, whether I’m wearing dresses, pants or skirts. A pop of color on a straw bag is also a fun way to brighten your neutrals for warm weather.

A tan or beige straw bag is the perfect neutral for printed dresses. They go with everything and you can even match them to your outfit by adding a tassel to the side or tying a scarf on the handle.

Straw has a more casual vibe, making it ideal for pairing with shorts and jeans. I always bring multiples on vacation and wear them almost every summer weekend with my laid back outfits.
