A Little Bit of Gray For A Gray Kind of Day

Hi all,

April is upon us which means – hello April showers! As many aren’t, i’m not a huge fan of a rainy day, however, I strategize by putting on a outfit I like so that I don’t feel the negativity.

Today’s outfit is simple, I grabbed a gray sweater and paired it with a white tank underneath. This created a polished look that is perfect for the office! My work bag went perfectly with this because it added some color to the whole look.

  • Sweater: H&M
  • Tank: H&M
  • Dress Pants: The Limited
  • Shoes: Express
  • Watch: Michael Kors

Valentine’s Day to Night Outfit

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 

I’m one of those people who love Valentine’s Day whether I am celebrating it with someone or not. I love the flowers, chocolates and stuffed animals in the tradional reds and pinks!

Today, I wanted share with you my Valentine’s Day themed outfit that is perfect for going from day to night!

This outfit is very simple. I took one of the few red shirts I own and paired it with a pair of distressed jeans and heels for a casual but put together day time look.

For the evening look, I changed from the jeans into this black lace pencil skirt. I LOVE this skirt because it’s black so it goes with everything and the lace adds some detail and has a feminine touch to it!

Fall Wrap 4-Ways!


Hi all,

Unfortunately, Fall is beginning to wind down but before it officially does I wanted to share with you four ways to wear the fall staple that so many of us have in our closets this season – a wrap.

This wrap is a beautiful mustard color and matches the color of the gorgeous fall leaves! I wore this with a black tshirt and leggings for that comfy feel.

1. The first way to wear this is the simplest way, like a shawl over the shoulders.


2. The second way is one of my favorites, with a belt. This is more flattering and looks more put together instead of the casual vibe the other three ways are.


3. This third look is more relaxed, with one side across the shoulder. I love wearing it this way on chilly days!


4. This final way create the affect of a wrap shirt. All you have to do is tuck in the sides of the shawl in your jeans and you’re good to go!


Comment below and let me know what you think of these simple ways to change up the look of your wrap!

For the Love of Autumn…

Hi all,

I’m going to say the one thing that almost every fashion obsessed girl says this season – Autumn is my favorite! Words can not describe how much in love with this season I am. The comfy sweaters, the hot lattes in the chilly mornings, the crunch sound you hear when you step on a pile of leaves and the beautiful color the world turns as the leaves change – could anything be more beautiful?

 

Fall is also my favorite season to dress for. The deeper colors, sweaters, boots and hats, I love it all! Today, i’m sharing with you an outfit of the day that just screams Autumn to me!

I wore a light weight sweater (perfect for that in between weather) in a taupe color, and then added a burgundy knit scarf to that. This is my favorite scarf for fall and winter because the color is so beautiful and it keeps you warm! It is finally chilly enough to pull out my brown boots, and then I added the hat as a fun extra to the outfit! I love this outfit because all the colors together look like the beautiful colors that the leaves are turning.

For The Love Chambray!

Hi all,

I hope you are all getting through your week well, it’s Thursday meaning we’re one day away from Friday! 😀

Today, I wanted to talk about one of my all time favorite shirts, chambray! The reason I love wearing chambray is that it is so versatile and easy to style. You can wear it alone, with a pair of jeans or leggings for an easy look, or wear it on top of a dress or skirt to make a look a bit more casual. The second has been my favorite way of wearing chambray lately and its so perfect for the upcoming fall season! Adding the shirt on top of a dress or skirt is the perfect way to transition it into the cooler fall season!

Here are two examples of how I styled a chambray shirt. The first one is by pairing it with a chevron maxi skirt and a white tank underneath. This was more of a day time causal look.

This second look is on top of a black maxi dress. This maxi dress on its own is too formal so by adding the shirt on top, it made it a more casual evening look!

Comment below and share what your favorite way of wearing a chambray shirt is!

-Until next time! 🙂

Flashback Friday to my Birthday OOTD! 

Hi all!

Happy Friday! My birthday was back in February but I didn’t get a chance to post my outfit so I thought what better day than flashback Friday?!

My birthday was pretty low key this year and I just went out to dinner with some friends. I wore a black button down, with black leather skinny’s. To break up the black on black, I added a boxy camel coat for outerwear. I love this coat! its so sophisticated and stylish, yet it looks laid back and loose (looks huge on me but its only a medium!) because of its boxy cut. I added a gold a statement necklace for some sparkle, and used my Louis Vuitton Neverfull pochette as a clutch!

Comment below and let me know what you think of this look!

Outfit Details:

  • Shirt & Leather Skinny’s: H&M
  • Coat: The Limited
  • Shoes: Nine West
  • Necklace: Macy’s
  • Clutch: Louis Vuitton
