The Bright Side

January 20, 2019

2 Comments

If you haven’t already figured this out, I really love yellow and mustard tones. I’ve worn them pretty much every season in various different ways. From skirts to blazers and now trousers, this beautiful hue can transcend a myriad of garments. With the Winter season upon us, I find that a lot of styles now are of darker tones. And while I do love the rich, deep tones that are currently trending, I love to just add a pop of color to brighten things up (literally in this case).

One of the advantages of Winter is that you can really take advantage of contrasting light and dark. In the Spring or Summer, I probably would have paired these mustard trousers with a white top and blazer, or color-blocked it with a teal blouse. However, I decided to really make the pants pop by putting it with a color that is on the opposite side of the color wheel. The black really enhances the mustard while providing understated yet essential style elements. To finish off the look, I could think of nothing better than a leopard print shoe because we all know leopard goes with everything. That is especially true, however, with mustard. It’s like a match made in heaven and really helps to merry the two color choices. And with that, my outfit was complete. Who says Winter fashion can’t be bold and bright?!

New Year Fix

January 15, 2019

It’s January of 2019. We are in a New Year which means that it’s time bring some new life into your wardrobe! I get a lot of questions on how to build up your closet and key pieces to add but honestly, that is really difficult to answer. So many things factor into that including your style preferences, your everyday life (are you a teacher, a stay-at-home mom, a lawyer, etc.) and just your overall aesthetic. Styling is extremely personal and subjective and so, although my hope is to provide outfit inspiration through my blog, I know that everyone is unique in their wants and needs.

With that being said, I want to mention a service to you that I think you should try in this New Year. That service is Stitch Fix. This is especially for those that feel that they are just in a style rut and need some direction. Maybe you have been wearing the same things for years and you want to branch out and try new things. Maybe you’ve just had a baby and are having a hard time adjusting to your new body. Or maybe you are just curious as to what a stylist may choose for you. Whatever the case may be, you can try Stitch Fix virtually risk free.

You have seen me talk about and partner with Stitch Fix before so it’s no secret that I love the brand. I have continued to get fixes since the launch of their plus size offering in collaboration with and independent of the company. Some of my favorite pieces, especially denim, have come from my fixes and I love the flexibility of being able to schedule them when I want and request certain things. I also love to just be surprised sometimes and see what they come up with. In fact, both this top and these leggings came from my most recent fix. I think you can tell from me posting them that these were keepers! I’m not sure that I would have picked out this top on my own but I love the tie at the waist and the color is divine. I just so happen to have matching pumps that went with it perfectly. Match made in heaven!

And for those that may not have heard of Stitch Fix before, it is a personalized online styling service. You sign up by completing a Style Profile where they gather a great deal of information from you from your style preferences, to your typical budget for clothes, to your body shape and measurements. Once you complete the profile, you will be assigned a stylist that will send you your first “fix” with 5 items that they’ve chosen just for you. You keep what you want and send back what you don’t. It’s that simple. Try it today and get $25 off your first Fix!

Winter Trend: Snakeskin

January 13, 2019

6 Comments

So I’ve noticed a trend that seems to be pretty much everywhere. That trend is snakeskin! It has been so prevalent on my Instagram feed with fashionable bloggers and influencers. I even saw an article that asked “Is snakeskin the new animal print?” Now, I wouldn’t go that far because I could never abandon my beloved leopard print. However, I am always open to more options and as the name of my blog suggests, I follow what are the latest trends. So, I figured I’d give this whole snake skin thing a whirl and I did that by starting with python print skirt.

Trends are tricky because most of the time, they are temporary fads that become popular as quickly as they fade away. They are also styles that we sometimes look back on and ask ourselves, ” what were we thinking?!” This trend, however, I don’t believe is one of those things. While I don’t think that snake print is as timeless as some of the classics, I do think that it is something that will have some longevity. The color palette is fairly neutral which makes it easy to style. It also is versatile enough to transcend seasons. These two factors greatly contribute to the length of time that it sticks around.

Just like any other print, it can take the form of many different garments. So in addition to skirts, I’ve seen snakeskin on pants, dresses and even jackets. This skirt is unfortunately low on stock but I’ve listed some other styles that you can take advantage of to be a part of this trend. Check them out below!

Coat Check

January 6, 2019

Believe it or not, it’s actually cold in Los Angeles. It may be cold according to California standards but I personally think that temperatures in the 40s at night is frigidly cold! I’m sure some of you that are experiencing true Winters and snow are rolling your eyes…and I get it. The point is that it is much cooler here than it normally is so I’m taking this opportunity to ramp up my Winter wardrobe. That means wearing scarves, boots and yes actually coats!

Now, being a Los Angeles native, I barely own a coat. I have one at the back of my closet that probably doesn’t even fit anymore. However, I actually have been searching for one that is stylish yet functional. One that I can wear during chilly nights at home as well as when I go out of town. A classic camel coat is a Winter must-have however, I stumbled on this beautiful pink one and literally gasped. I never knew that I needed a pink coat until that very moment and purchased it immediately.

Winter clothing is pretty muted and colorless so I was excited to see a coat of this nature in such a bright hue. It brings a little excitement to outerwear and I am all about color. I decided to keep the look pretty simple with a white tank top and NYDJ jeans. Wearing a coat off the shoulders is very Californian, I know, but I also think it looks very chic. I finished off the outfit with my favorite pair of leopard pumps because let’s be honest, leopard goes with everything. Winter coat…check!
