In the last couple of seasons, we have seen the rise of bold prints in bold colors. If you follow this blog, you know that I'm a sucker for print and color so when I saw this skirt it was on!

nyfw ss15: day one


I started nyfw with shape, color, and print. I wanted to go for a very decade inspired look. The only problem was I couldn't decided on just one decade. This look is a mix of the 50s and 60s. The shape of the outfit is both 50s and 60s. The print and color is all 60s.

empire


Fashion Week is finally here! This look is from two weeks ago when I was anticipating New York Fashion Week. I'm pretty sure it's obvious that I couldn't wait by the NYC shirt. 

Creating the Look:
Of course this look starting with the NYC shirt. When thinking of wearing this shirt, all I knew was I wanted to cuff the sleeves on the tee. Once I thought of cuffing the sleeves, I thought that it looked pretty "bad ass," so I wanted to add the opposite on the bottom. I went for a soft, flowy skirt. I brought the "bad ass" back with the buckle strap heels and collar necklace. I completed the look with a tassel black clutch and a dark lip.

Warby Parker Fall 2014 Collection


One of my favorite seasons is coming upon us and I'm excited about what's to come for fall trends! One company that I'm super excited about for this fall is Warby Parker! Warby Parker is an eyewear company that prides themselves on giving back. Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.  The company's focus is creating stylish and affordable frames.

Their fall collection makes me envy everyone who wears glasses. Their collection aligns perfectly with the fall fashion trends. For the past couple of seasons, we have seen a shift in fashion. Designers have found the beauty in simplistic silhouettes and designs, which we see continue in the fall. That's exactly what I saw when viewing Warby Parker's fall collection. According to Warby Parker, each frame was designed with a specific customer in mind.
"For the Bold, we created three clever styles in crystal. For the polished professional, we updated three hardworking acetate frames with titanium temples. And for the folks who really mean business, we designed a handful of angular silhouettes."
No matter the frame, you get a sleek look from the Warby Parker fall collection. Check out what's to come for fall trends and how Warby Parker aligns.

cool colors

I often find myself pulling outfits from the cool colors of the color wheel. Those colors are great for any season and any outfit. 

Creating the Look:
This look started with the heels. I wanted to create an outfit that was casual and made the heels the focus. When thinking of a casual outfit, boyfriend jeans are always my go-to. I chose a light blue pair of denim because of their contrast to the heels. I wanted to add some print with the top and I wanted to keep it in the outfit's blue color scheme. A navy, floral button up was a perfect add. I wanted to subtly add another color to the outfit so I chose a green, faux ostrich clutch. Green is also considered a cool color so this went perfect with the cool blue. I completed the look with jeweled earrings and silver accessories.

old classics, new details

Nothing is better than a crisp, white button up and a pair of jeans. For this outfit I took some old classics and made the new through the details. 

Creating the Look:
This look started with the mules. I wanted to pair them with an outfit that made them the focus, so I went with the classics. I wore a classic white button up and jean but I made the look interesting with specific details. For the button up, I decided to leave the bottom buttons unbuttoned. This allowed me to use my skin as a contrast to the white button up. Instead of classic jeans, I wore boyfriend jeans. The distressing added some edge to the look. Last, I added a pop of color with a faux ostrich skin clutch.
