In the Arts

Happy Friday! It is actually feeling like Spring today for the first time, and I couldn’t be more excited! What about you? I am so over the cold and snowy weather. Now that it has warmed up, what do you wear? Well for me its leggings of course. I love the faux leather ones, which are great for Spring, considering that in the morning and evening the temperature maybe a littler more chillier. I styled the leggings with a black tank, which is perfect for that afternoon warmer temps. I paired the outfit with a tan moto jacket to give it a little color. Added a couple of accessories and wedges and I was good to go. What are you wearing today??

Not Yet Spring

Shop: Jacket | Leggings | Blouse | Purse | Shoes 

What is this weather doing? One day snow and freezing, the next day it feels like summer. When this happens it is hard to know how to dress. My suggestions is layers upon layers, it is the only way to get through the day. This transitional weather is just right for a thin leather jacket (which I like to call my going out jacket), paired with the right outfit its perfect. These faux leather leggings are my favorite and have been on heavy rotation during these colder weather days. With this layered look, I added a lot of textures, solids and patterns to the mix. When I pattern mix I like to stick to the same color or colors that compliment each other so it looks like a cohesive outfit. All in all this outfit is great to take from day to night.

Transitioning to Spring with Pattern and Color

Some days it might not feel like it, especially with this crazy snow, but the first day of Spring is literally around the corner. I am looking forward to warmer weather and bright colors as you can see from my outfit. This Spring I am all about the bold solids and leopard anything. In my book leopard will always be a neutral, and this blouse compliments almost any bold color you can find. For this outfit I paired a yellow blazer with cream and gold details, with this leopard blouse. If that was not enough pattern and color I added a pop of red with a clutch and lipstick. Finishing the look with black leggings and spiked heels. This will definitively be a go to for the warmer weather. What does you Spring outfit look like? Shop mine below.

It’s All About the Floral

Spring is always about the flowers, right?  Who is gearing up for the warm weather to come? This girl right here, I cannot wait! What is more perfect then a floral maxi for this time of year? It is so fitting because the blooms will be coming soon. This dress is from Agnes and Dora, it is super comfortable, as all their clothing are. I would size down in many of their pieces because they run big. I paired it with a belt to give myself more of a waist, which I think compliments it well. The belt buckle is an A for Alli of course! I accessorized wth a matching clutch, which I love. It is one of my favorites, and the taupe color goes with almost everything. Finished the look with gold bangles, a red lip and peep toe sandals.

Five Spring 17 Fashion Trends

 
Shop: One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten | Eleven | Twelve 

It is Spring in the US, which means that temperatures are rising and the fashion comes out, including  great trends this season that will make stylists and fashionistas want to add a few things to their collection. I have picked five of my favorite trends to share with you 1. Bold solids; this jumpsuit is great for social functions, and this dress is wonderful for a spring/summer weddings. Solids are easy to accessorize and look wonderful on almost everyone.  2. Florals are also in style for warm weather temperatures, I am loving this  rose print blouse and these floral biker pants. If you like something with a little more multi-colored, florals are the way to go.  3. The exaggerated sleeve is always a good look. I think they add character to an otherwise boring outfit. If you are in the market for some ruffles then try this off the shoulder top or this sleeveless ruffle gown. 4. The sheer look is really popular right now, it can be done conservatively with this look here, or a little bit more risqué with this look. 5. Statement stripes are an easy fun look that can add a little diversity to your wardrobe. I love this flirty mini dress or this low key cold shoulder dress. What are your favorite Spring 17 trends?

Spring Picks 2016

The first day of Spring is tomorrow and I am so looking forward to it. What about you? It is the days of chilly mornings and warm almost hot afternoons. It is definitely a time for transitioning your wardrobe for the upcoming heat. There are there are so many great spring styles that I love.

One of my favorites is florals. Find an affordable pair of floral heels here. I love floral shoes because they make me think of the flowers yet to bloom. Another Spring favorite is white denim (find a great pair of white denim jeans here). Chambray is a trend that we have seen a lot of this past year. I love a good chambray dress because it is easy to throw on for many occasions, like to run errands, social gathering with friends, and to work with a sweater or blazer (here is my pick for a chambray dress). Since eventually it will be warm enough to lay by the pool or go to the beach my pick for a swimsuit is a one piece halter. It is very flattering for most body types (find my favorite here). What are your Spring favorites? Check out my other Spring picks below. Hope you enjoy!

Wedding Season

Who is ready for Spring? I definitely am. I  cannot wait for the days of cool mornings and warm even hot afternoons and evenings. In the spring and summer I love to wear dresses.

They are the easiest thing to put on and can literally be worn anywhere. To work, church, a wedding and out with friends. Since spring and summer are big time wedding seasons I put together a look I plan on wearing to an upcoming wedding this summer.

I love this floral dress (similar here, here, and here). It is great for an indoor or outdoor wedding. I paired it with a white blazer (found here and here). Blazers are awesome for coverups for sleeveless dresses especially for outdoor or evening wedding. I literally have 6-8 blazers because they are a great compliment to almost any outfit. I accessorized this outfit with Kendra Scott earrings (here) and necklace (here) Watch is from Wristology (found here), use code: AA20 for 20% off of any watch. I paired my Chloé ‘Marcie’ satchel (here) and wedges (favorites here and here) to finish the look. What is your favorite wedding look? Shop my look below. Hope you enjoy!
