This Time...

Yet another night wearing my go-to all black ensemble had me yearning to spice things up. Make up is always the perfect "accessory" for me. I get my style inspiration from all over, including fashion magazines, style blogs, celebrities, and more. Here, I tried an eye makeup look I recently saw in a magazine. I loved how the purple shades of eyeshadow stood out against the neutral black.

True Blue

Every girl should have an off-the-shoulder top in her closet. They are so feminine and show the perfect amount of skin; the shoulder and collarbone are such vulnerable parts on a woman's body. These tops are flirty and sensual, the perfect look for a romantic evening or a night out.

How do you like to wear off-the-shoulder tops?

A Floral Affair

As spring settles in, all I see around me is flowers...Flowers on the ground, flowers on clothes, flowers everywhere. Floral patterns are fun and carefree. You can wear a subtle version, like my scarf, or a full-on floral look, like a floral print dress. However you wear it, it is the perfect print for spring.

I Just Came to Say Hello

I'm so glad to be welcoming shorts back into my life with the warmer weather. Denim shorts are a timeless wardrobe essential. They can be dressed up or down; they can be a "neutral" piece or the focal point of an outfit. They are just so versatile! I probably have twenty pairs, ranging from ripped, pleated, cuffed, embellished, and more.

How do you feel about denim shorts?

Read My Lips

Simplicity goes a long way. Some of my favorite outfits are styled with minimal jewelry and accessories. It's so effortless to throw on a nice jacket with a simple tank top and jeans. A strong red lip makes a statement and adds a pop of color to pull everything together.

How do you feel about simple and easy looks?

Precious Cargo

 I have a new love affair with cargo pants. In fashion, they say things always keep coming back in style. The last time cargo pants were in, I absolutely hated them. I felt like they were bulky and unflattering. Now the skinny cargo pant has made its debut, finally showing off some of our curves (which I love)!

What do you think of the return of the cargo pants trend?

A Touch of Turquoise

 I have a little bit of an obsession with matching. I love when things go well with each other...it gives me a type of excitement I can't really describe. It's like certain pieces were just made to be paired together! Here, the stitching on my top matches the cardigan and turquoise bracelet, while the top, ring, and boots are all the same shade. And of course, being a total makeup lover, my eyes had to pull the whole "turquoise" theme together :)

How do you guys feel about matching - are you matchy-matchy like me, or like to mix and match different types of pieces?

A Serious Converse-ation

Since I can remember, there have always been at least one pair of Converse sneakers in my closet. When I was five years old, I had the cutest pair of purple high-tops. They have gotten me through long school days, crazy concerts, and more. Trends and styles come and go, but Converse All Stars are timeless. They are simply a staple for a casual look.

How do you like to incorporate Converse into your outfits?

"Cuff Your Jeans, Girl!"

I have a love/hate relationship with menswear. While I love boyfriend jeans on other girls, it sometimes appears that I am swimming in fabric rather than wearing actual clothes. Often times, my small frame gets lost in boxy blazers and loose button down shirts. Alas--as always is in fashion--not everything works for everyone. However, I do love menswear-INSPIRED pieces that are made to fit a woman's shape. I absolutely fell in love with this shirt because it was fitted in all the right areas and had little girlie details like the cute buttons and lace shoulders. Plus, adding a belt at the waist can never hurt! :)

What do you think of it?

Purple Pizzazz

The transitioning between seasons gives you a great opporunity to mix things up with your closet. Pairing shorts and sneakers with long sleeves and a scarf is a perfect example. Choose pieces from your winter wardrobe with pieces worn in the spring for a fun and easy look.

How do you like to mix it up as the seasons change?
