Day/Night Outfits

Day/Night Outfits


Fall has honestly become one of my favorite seasons for fashion. There are so many different combinations you can put together (e.g. shorts and chunky sweaters) that aren't practical in summer when it's blazing hot or winter when it's super chilly and cold.

Lace shorts paired with a bright, bold chunky sweater is a perfect daytime fall outfit, especially when paired with some great ankle booties. For night...throwing on a tough leather jacket (of if you're like me...faux leather) over a sexy bandage dress is a great option and you can complete the look by throwing on a pair of statement heels and earrings.

DAY OUTFIT: Topshop Tea Blouse//Zara Mini Skort//Michael Kors Leopard Flats//Asos Boater Hat//Burberry Women's Gold Watch//Kenzo Round Sunglasses//

NIGHT OUTFIT: Chelsea Silk Top//Etro Printed Cropped Trousers//Christian Louboutin "Bianca"//Miu Miu Leather Clutch//Sabine Statement Necklace//


The second reason for my new appreciation for fall is the fact that you can still incorporate your summer pieces into your daily style. Down here in the great state of Texas our afternoon weather is still in the 80's for the most part so a cute mini skort and tee with a pair of relaxed flats is a great option. If it's colder where you live then just throw on a cute cardigan to make it more fall appropriate.


For night...a silk top in a rich color and bold, printed pants are a great match along with a pair of neutral heels. Again, if it is colder where you live, a black blazer will instantly make this outfit even more polished and add some warmth.

New Shoes for Fall


Fall is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than to of course...buy NEW SHOES lol. I know my shopping problem has reached embarrassing levels at this point but I have found so many amazing deals that I just couldn't pass up!

I found these gorgeous pair of leopard booties by Sam Edelman on eBay (brand new and in perfect condition) on sale for only $80 [originally $220]. Also, these dark maroon (I know they come off reddish on here) booties from Urban Outfitters were on sale and only had one size in stock...which was of course mine (don't you just LOVE when that happens).

Finally, these Aldo heels were just screaming my name when they first came out (sadly not on sale though so I had to cough up the whole bit of $150) and I had to grab them as soon as I laid eyes on them. I can't wait to style these and my other purchases for fall and I have a ton of fashion posts/videos in the works once I finish summer school in 3 days.

Top 3 Lipstick Picks for Summer


Summer lipsticks are a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit and give yourself that bit of sophistication. My top three picks so far this summer (in no particular order) are: "Siren" by Revlon, "Girl About Town" by MAC, and "Ruby Woo" by Mac. 

"Siren" is a gorgeous coral color with a great orange tone that gives you a fresh glow and youthful look. I love pairing this color with neutrals since it is a very "in your face" color. The more girly favorite of mine is "Girl About Town" which is a very popular color {and rightfully so} because it is literally the PERFECT shade of fuchsia in a lipstick that I have ever seen. It has blue undertones in it so it won't overwhelm your outfit and is just such a fun color to wear.

My absolute favorite of the three though is of course the infamous "Ruby Woo" which is by far that classic red color that can work for all skin-tones. Whether you're going on a hot date or to a formal event, this amazing shade of red will be sure to add that perfect touch of class to your outfit and make you the standout of the crowd.

New Fashion Buys: Zara + Rebecca Minkoff


As if my shopping addiction couldn't get any worse Zara decides to have their semi-annual sale. The ironic part of this is that out of the 7 items I actually purchased only 1 of them was on sale lol. I of course had to get another pair of their famous strappy heels and some floral print items. I also picked up what I am now deeming as "the skort that every blogger owns" because it is indeed way overexposed but I still just had to pick it up because of it's versatility. 

I also bought this Rebecca Minkoff purse (the mini mac in "poppy pink") and I actually was lucky enough to get it on sale from Piperlime. The color in person is just beautiful and it is surprisingly very roomy for a satchel style purse.

As you can probably tell from the upgraded quality of my pictures I finally purchased my first DSLR (Nikon) and have fallen absolutely in LOVE. I can't wait to start using it for filming/shooting.

Summer is right upon us and it's time to finally pull out the brights and printed items out of your closet. I just love the whole vibe summer brings out of the world and not to mention all of the trends that are still available to try out. I put together three outfits that can be worn on different occasions such as brunch, mid-day shopping, or a fun dinner date with your girlfriends.


I started summer school last week so unfortunately I won't be able to actually enjoy my summer the way I would like (i.e. a super fun, relaxing vacation)...I'm graduating in December (which is definitely a plus) so I guess I will just have to live vicariously through friends that actually get to travel to exotic places during these next couple of months [insert sad face here LOL].

On the bright side I will be buying my first DSLR camera (I finally feel all grown up in this "blogger world") at the end of this month and I can't wait to start playing around with it. It's really crazy how PASSIONATE I've become with style, fashion, etc. since I was in high school and how much my own personal style has evolved. I'm so excited to see how far my blog will progress, where it will take me, and what opportunities await me in the future.

Popular Spring/Summer Trends

PRINTED PANTS


I have an absolute obsession with printed pants for this spring and summer season. I've found 
some great pairs from Asos, Forever 21, and Ebay (my guilty pleasure) and they are so great 
to have fun with and bring a bold statement to your outfit.   



 ALL WHITE


 All white is such a fresh and classic statement to make and I have been seeing
outfits like these all across blog sites. Pair it with some statement heels or
a simple pair of nude pumps to keep it modern. 



DENIM ON DENIM


Denim on denim is a very 90's-esque trend that I've seen a lot of lately and,  
when done correctly, can be really cool and unique. 



GRAPHIC TOPS


Graphic tops have come back with a vengeance since my days in high school. The trick is to 
dress it up for an unexpected, effortless outfit. Try pairing your favorite graphic top
with a peplum skirt, stripes, or skinny jeans along with your favorite pumps to have a 
unique blend of casual and dressy in one outfit.

Busy, Busy



 Busy would definitely be an understatement to describe my life right now. Between school and work I literally have no time for a social life and I'm either studying, doing homework, or catching up on sleep.

I know this will all be worth it when I graduate in December (yay!!) but right now I seriously need a break...thankfully spring break is right around the corner.

I've decided to go on a bit of a hiatus on both my YouTube channel and blog to focus on everything I have going on and I will be returning in mid April. I'm buying my first DSLR camera for my birthday and I can not wait to come back with tons of outfit posts with even better quality. I've also been shopping like crazy (I guess because of the constant stress of meeting deadlines) but hey who doesn't love new clothes/shoes??? Lol.

New Fashion Goods: ASOS + Zara

FROM ZARA

FROM ASOS
Asos has really stepped their game up when it comes to shipping to the U.S. I ordered these items last Friday and received them Wednesday afternoon which was a nice surprise. Most of the items(not all are pictured here) I got were on sale, like these gorgeous floral pants.

From Zara I bought this structured, sleek black purse that looks so effortless and sophisticated I just had to grab it for $79.90. I finally found the perfect pair of black faux leather pants as well and also was lucky enough to snag this feminine, green lace dress (on sale for $29.99) that will be perfect for summertime.

Chic Outfits For The Weekend

POlished & Classic (Weekend Outfits)


Leopard print is such a bold statement piece on its own so when making it the focal point of an outfit it is key to:

PAIR WITH NEUTRAL CLOTHING ITEMS (BLACK, WHITE, ETC).
ADD A POP OF COLOR WITH YOUR SHOES OR JEWELRY TO MAKE IT MORE MODERN.



 Trendy & Feminine (eekend Outfits)


Graphic tees are such an easy staple to have in your wardrobe because it is so easy to dress them up or down. For a feminine look:

TUCK YOUR TEE INTO A LACE SKIRT IN THE SAME COLOR PALETTE.
ADD STRAPPY HEELS AND STATEMENT EARRINGS FOR A POLISHED FINISH.
 


 Colorful & Bold (Weekend Outfits)


Bright, printed pants are still totally on trend and are surprisingly very wearable. When you feel like being bold with your outfit:

PICK THE SMALLEST COLOR IN THE PANT DESIGN AND WEAR IT AS YOUR TOP COLOR TO MAKE IT POP.
PAIR WITH NEUTRAL HEELS (BEIGE, GOLD, NUDE, ETC.).
DON'T BE AFRAID TO PAIR YOUR OUTFIT WITH BRIGHT NAILS AND HANDBAG TO COMPLETE THE BOLD LOOK.
