Born for Bouclé

In my opinion, bouclé is one of the best fabrics for winter. For those of us who still attempt to be fashionable during the colder months, it is the perfect package--warm, comfortable, and stylish. I paired my snow white bouclé sweater with an always versatile sweater dress. Fun leg wear--legwarmers, patterned tights, and slouchy boots--topped off with a round scarf, complete the look.

Naturally Neutral

I think it is already pretty obvious how much I love an all-black outfit. This "neutral" base just gives you so much to work with. With all black, accessories are the key to a perfect look. In the colder weather, a big scarf, matching booties, and a statement clutch are the perfect accents to your outfit.

Silver Sightings

 A sweater dress is an always classic, easy-to-wear look. Worn with leggings or tights, this outfit is extremely comfortable without sacrificing fashion. To add some excitement to a plain ensemble, big jewelry or intense makeup (or both!) can really enhance the look.

I ♥ Shearling

One of my favorite things about winter is boots. Knee-high boots, flat boots, booties - I love them all! When I bought these booties I fell in love...they are the perfect combination: shearling, lace-up, and a high heel.
What do you think?

Military Moment

Take one look at any magazine right now and it is most likely that you will see something military-inspired. The military trend is one of the hottest styles right now; military jackets, military boots, and military colors are everywhere. With all the buttons and embellishments on most military pieces, it is best to rock this look with clean lines and minimal jewelry.

As Free as a Butterfly

I find fashion to be a great way to express yourself. While I love to stay up to date, I don't always follow trends. I like to dress however I feel like dressing at the moment. Sometimes, comfort is key. Other times, it is all about dressing to impress. Whatever you choose, it is always most important to be true to yourself.

Sweet Simplicity

A little goes a long way. While I'm a huge fan of vibrant colors and fun jewelry, some of my favorite outfits consist of basic black and white. When channeling this type of look, it is important to focus on one aspect, like silhouette or a specific accessory. Since this simple look adds a level of sophistication (when worn correctly), it is quite versatile and can form countless outfit options and opportunities.

Black, White, and Pink All Over

One of my favorite color combinations is black, white, and pink. Black and white are basic, but I like to add a pop of color at times. Pink is the perfect feminine touch, especially with a boxy masculine blazer. Once you find the right balance between the two ends of the spectrum, the outcome can be incredible.

Fabulous Fingertips

One of the easiest ways to have fun with your look is through your nails. I am personally not of the opinion that your nails have to match what you're wearing; it is unrealistic and honestly unnecessary. Lately extreme colors are all the rage. It's fun to play around with different colors and nail art. I sometimes like to add glitter or an interesting design. The best part is that if one style is too much for you, it is easy to remove and try something else. Fabulous fingertips can be the perfect addition to your look!

Body Con? More Like Body Pro! ;)

One of my favorite fashion trends is widely popular right now: Body-Con (short for Body Conscious). I absolutely love tight high waist skirts, bandage dresses, and figure hugging pieces in general. This trend really shows off your shape, and what is great about it is that it pretty much works for everyone. Love your legs but not crazy about your stomach area? Pair a loose fitting top with a tight bandage skirt. Uncomfortable showing too much skin? A long-sleeved body con dress is sexy and stylish, while still providing coverage. Whatever you decide, body con can be extremely flattering and fashionable.

Basic Black with a Wild Side

There is something so chic about an all black outfit. But to go from boring to brilliant, I always like to add some exciting details, like the leopard print accents I used here. I always consider the neutral black as a blank canvas that can be accessorized a million ways to created endless outfit options. 
Who says you can't be simple and stylish at the same time?

New Year, New Beginnings

Happy New Year everyone! This blog has been a long time coming, but with the new year starting, I thought it was a perfect time to really get the ball rolling with it...
* * *
I am a big believer in first impressions. The way you dress and present yourself is the first thing people see when they look at you. Whether in a professional, social, or other situation, your personal style represents YOU.

Fashion is a way to express yourself. What's fun about style is that it's all your own. Your outfit is like your own piece of art. Whether it's something you threw on in a matter of minutes or an ensemble you've been planning for weeks, the outcome is always something new and fresh. That's why I love getting dressed every day!
