Rust Factor

October 23, 2016









I have fully submerged myself into the Fall color palette. I was teetering on the edge of Summer and Fall, dabbling in both of the season’s styles but I have come to realization that I have converted to the dark side. Now my wardrobe consists of earthy neutrals, rich wines and harvest tones such as this rust colored skirt. I am just loving all of the deep hues that are available this season. There’s something about Fall style that makes it the pinnacle of fashion in my book.

While I have transitioned my style, I still like to mix in some lighter colors such as blush pink and nude that perfectly contrast the more darker shades. As you can see with this look, the mesh nude bodysuit gives a softer note to the richness of the burnt orange skirt. If I would have gone with black for instance, the combination of the two may have clashed.

I also think that its great to mix in current trends to keep things interesting. Metallic has become very popular recently starting from the designer runways all the way down to the everyday woman. Seen in skirts, dresses, bags and accessories, this trend is literally everywhere. I decided to start incorporating metallic into my wardrobe in subtle ways such as these rose gold metallic pumps that I absolutely love. It pairs great with the existing color combination and provides a bit of bling to the look. This is Fall style done my way and just how I like it!

Fall Must-Have: Waterfall Duster

October 16, 2016









If there is one item that you need in your wardrobe this season, its a waterfall duster. This garment has been worn by everyone from popular celebrities to just everyday women. The reason for its popularity is because it is so versatile and easy to wear. This garment literally looks great on everyone! Whether you pair it with a tank top and skinny jeans, a fitted dress or a skirt and top combination as I have done here, your outfit is sure to look polished and chic. The length of the duster gives it a bit of a dramatic feel while the material though lightweight, is great for this time of year. You can dress it up or dress it down and it is suitable for any occasion. I love the ease that it provides when I need something quick. I can put on the plainest of items but when I put this duster on, it completely changes the outfit.

Lucky for you (and me), this garment is really inexpensive and accessible. I purchased this one from Forever 21 for less than $30! For the amount of looks that I can create with just this one piece, that it is a steal! Snag yourself a waterfall duster today and you will not be disappointed. Here are a couple more options for your liking:

Today I’m debuting a new brand on my blog called ELVI. While this brand is not a new company, it is still fairly new to me and I’m sure new to some of you as well. Based in the United Kingdom, I discovered ELVI from following the stylish looks of some prominent UK bloggers. I fell in love with their chic, polished style that totally matched my aesthetic. When I was recently approached to do a collaboration with them, I jumped at the opportunity and quickly began selecting my favorites from their site. Upon receiving my picks, I can describe their clothing in one word: lush! The quality, the details, the fabric choices and the construction are all so well done and I’m so glad to know that this caliber of clothing comes in my size!

This pleated skirt that I am wearing is from ELVI. I am loving pleated garments for this transitional time and the color block feature is a subtle yet unique detail. Although the look is simple, I wanted to add small details to enhance it with this tassel belt and gold hardware clutch. It really helped bring the look together and make it more cohesive.

Be sure to check out all of ELVI’s clothing and try some garments out for yourself. You will not be disappointed!

I have fallen in love with wine all over again (the color that is). Every time Fall rolls around, this deep, rich hue reappears and reminds me why I get so excited for the season’s fashion. Although not a neutral, it can compliment many different colors from teal to navy blue to even blush pink as I wore here. This time around though, I decided to keep it simple with an off the shoulder black top. Chokers are all the rave this season and have become a very popular trend. First worn as accessories, chokers have now evolved into being a part of garments like this one I’m wearing. It adds a subtle yet unique element to your overall look because after all, accessories and details are everything. With black and gold to match, my look was complete.

3 Must-Have Shoes for Fall

October 4, 2016


Temperatures are starting to drop and the air is getting crisp. You know what that means! It’s officially that time of the year to swap out those open toe shoes for some stylish Fall footwear. No need to fear though, I’ve identified some of the most on-trend styles of the season along with some of my favorite pairs. Check them all out below!

The Stylized Pump

Pumps are a classic style that can be worn with just about anything. This season, its time to “pump” up the volume by adding straps and deep Fall colors to give a more stylized shoe.

The Bootie

Booties are literally the shoe of Fall. They are the perfect compliment to those semi-casual looks of sweaters, scarves and the like. You can opt for a super chic high heel bootie or a thick heeled casual everyday bootie.

The Mule

You may or may not already be familiar with mules but in essence, they are almost like an open air bootie. With a peep toe in the front and exposed heel in the back, mules are great for this in between time where the weather is not quick cool yet. Plus, with not zipping, tying or strapping, you can just slip your feet in and go!

Simply Autumn

October 2, 2016


Hi loves! Today I’ve partnered with Simply Be to style different types of denim from their amazing selection. They truly have something for every body type from bootleg to skinny to even mom jeans. I tested out 3 styles pairing them with items that I also selected from the Simply Be website. So without further adieu, let’s take a trip to destination denim!

The Flare

Retro-chic mixed a modern flare (pun intended), these super stretchy and comfortable jeans provide the ultimate support for the curvy frame. They are designed to sit high on the waist, hitting you at your smallest point and hugging your hips for an hourglass silhouette.

The Boyfriend

Boyfriend jeans are universally flattering and one of my favorite styles to wear. They offer the best of both worlds – comfort and style. They also have great versatility with the ability to dress them up or down depending on the occasion. I paired mine with a cute scallop peplum top and simple black high heel sandals.

The Straight Leg

Straight leg is a style that I don’t typically wear however I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised. They are just slightly looser than a typical skinny jean and are great for those that want to elongate their legs. They also have a Magicsculpt control panel that flattens your tummy and lifts your butt (hello!)
