Speaking Spring into Existence

Spring or Sprung. It’s like California or Bust……get it?! I’m all about speaking things into existence. Therefore, we’re talking about all the things I cannot wait to wear once it starts getting warmer. I don’t know about you guys but I honestly feel like winter is the longest season. It just drags on and on and on AND ON! It’s probably just as long as all the other seasons but I am more than ready to see it go. I’m pale and I want to wear sandals again! Do you hear me or do you hear me? Anyways, right now I am into boyfriend jeans, button ups, espadrilles, and t shirt dresses with sneakers. Here I am sharing some of the pictures I used for inspiration while shopping. Yes, I have already bought some spring and summer pieces 😉   Images: WhoWhatWear, Pintrest, CollageVintage, Style.com Advertisements

NYFW Street Style

Another year and another NYFW week has gone by! Still dreaming of the day I make it there 😩 one day guys, one day! I love following some of my fellow bloggers on snapchat so I get to see the  behind the scenes/live footage of the shows! I also love that bloggers are bridging the gap between blogging and Youtube. I get to see what they’re doing in between shows, fittings, and how they handle all the hassle and bustle. My absolute favorite part is definitely the street style though! Fashion is obviously everything to me but style brings fashion to life. You can spend thousands of dollars on the hottest bags, shoes, tops, and pants but it means nothing if you don’t know how to style them. Here are some of my fave outfits!

Velvet is Trending this Fall

There is no statement truer than what goes around comes around! Velvet is trending this Fall, y’all! The hottest trend of this Fall has already been seen on the hottest it girls! Velvet was also all over the runways by Anna Sui, Jenny Packham, Gianvito Rossi, Prada, and so many other designers. I’m not talking about just velvet booties either – dresses, jackets, footwear. ALLA DAT! I already love how velvet has been style for both Summer and Fall. I think these booties are going to be great transitional pieces. What do you guys think? Yas or pass on the velvet?    

How To Rock Hair Accessories

  I think we can all agree that hair accessories are a  t h i n g. Lets be real ladies – on a day to day basis we aren’t putting a tremendous amount of effort into our hair. Hair accessories are the equivalent to adding the right jewelry and bag to your outfit. These pins, bows, and headbands take any regular degular hairstyle to the next level. Your messy bun just went from ‘I woke up 20 minutes after my alarm went off’ to ‘Chic low bun’ in seconds! Here are some different types of accessories that I’ve been seeing ALL over social media and the runways to give you some inspiration.   Gilden Hair Pins 2. Floral 3, Headbands  

Mixing Prints like it’s nobody’s business

Nothing says spring like print does! There’s stripes, floral, snake print, paisley, micro print, windowpane… I could go on forever. Mixing prints can be a little intimidating. I think my biggest insecurity when doing so is that I look busy or I think that I look like I couldn’t decide on what I actually wanted to wear that day Fret no more! Here are some of my favorite It Girls to show us all how its done. Images from WhoWhatWear.com, Vouge.c0m, Bloglovin, and Pinterest.  

The Latest Denim Trend

One of my favorite things about fashion is how trends come and go and how certain key pieces of an era circle back around. I can remember wearing overalls in elementary school and later thinking how I would never touch the things again. Alas, here we are in 2016 and I’m pining over Paige Denim overalls. Buuuut this post is about the last trend in denim: cropped jeans Flared, skinny, you name it – as long as they are cropped. I was indifferent on the crop at first but now I’m totally into it. I think a deep wash and a white button down with a pair of heeled sandals would be so cute for a night out, or even with a pair of sneakers for the day time. How would you style this new trend?  

VERY into: Adidas x Stan Smith

I know, I know! I’m late to the party. I was ultra reluctant to buy a pair of sneakers because the only time you will ever catch me in a pair is when I go to the gym….. every other leap year. Howeva, I’ve seen so many celebs and fashion bloggers rocking them all over the internet that I caved. (Story of mi vida 🙂 These are fashion’s favorite sneaker right now and I ain’t mad at it. I’ve seen these cuties worn with workout gear, skirts, dresses, leather, denim, YOU NAME IT. I like that it adds an effortless vibe to whatever you’re wearing. Here are some inspo pictures that I looked to while I was deciding if I was going to buy them or not and also some of my favorite street style looks.

NYFW 2016 | Street Style

I can’t believe NYFW has come and gone already! I haven’t made it there yet but I still get very excited to new collections and all the street style snaps photographers take. I stalk social media religiously around this week. I love to see my favorite bloggers share some behind the scenes action from all the shows they go to. I also love when designers post their shows live on their websites, it makes me feel like I’m there even when I’m at home in bed a million miles away 😉 I can’t wait to see what London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Week have in store for us. Here are some of my favorite street style outfits. All images from collagevintage.com X,

Layering Like A Pro

When it comes to layering it is always important to have really good basics. I always like to start with a good pair of jeans and a simple top or sweater. The “Third Piece Rule” is always a good guideline to follow. Your pants and top are the first two pieces of your outfit. The third piece is an add-on. So this could be a jacket, sweater, scarf, or any type of accessory. Cardigans and leather jackets are always my go-to options! And I always finish off an outfit with ankle boots. I can’t tell you how many pairs I own. Stacking jewelry is always fun too. It adds a little something extra to every outfit. Dainty pieces are easiest to layer because you can add more than a few without it looking like you’ve over accessorized your outfit. Gold is always my favorite! 😉   What are some of your favorite ways of layering?
