something new

This post is the start of an evolution within my style. It's crazy because it took numerous outfits to notice the change and a lot of disbelief. In the past, I was all things color. I had a great understand of the beauty of neutral, as seen in past post, but you would rarely see me in an all neutral outfit. Lately, I'm finding myself in nothing but neutrals. This shift in my style is also the shift we are seeing in fashion right now. Fashion is now focusing more on the detail, shape, and style of clothing. Without knowing, I was inspired by this concept and started to emulate it in my style. 

Creating the Look: 
The look started with the faux leather joggers. I knew I wanted to dress them up and pair them with structured pieces since the were the opposite of structured. Of course when thinking of structure, a blazer comes to mind. I chose a white blazer because of my new obsession with neutrals. I also chose a white blazer because it goes against the traditional black on black. Although I now have a love for neutrals, my color roots are still in me. I chose to pair a chambray striped button up because you get the best of both worlds with this blue. It looks similar to denim so you get the neutral side but the fact that it is blue, it gives color to the look. I took that blue to the heels. I chose these heels because it's design made it look like I added another print to the look. One thing that is still big in my style is mixing prints. I completed the look with a pair of sunnies and a black clutch.

quick details

One thing I love about warm weather is the simplicity of the clothing. There isn't a need for too much clothing but that doesn't mean you have to skip on the details. 

Creating the Look: 
This look started with the jeans. This was an after work look so I wanted to be comfy and nothing says comfy like jeans. I wanted to dress up the look so I used the small details for that. The first detail was the lace, sleeveless button up. The sleeve detail of the blazer was another add. The dress up look was definitely achieve with the accessories. A great pair of white heels, stacked, jeweled necklaces, and an green faux-ostrich clutch gave the look great detail.

denim day

I jump at any opportunity to wear denim on denim. It's always the perfect laid-back look!

Creating the Look:
This look started with my denim boyfriend shorts. I wanted to keep the outfit simple so I decided to wear a denim top. I chose my tie-dye denim shirt because the bleached parts matched the shorts. I wanted to wear heels with the look. Yet again, I wanted to keep it simple. Mules are the perfect simple heels. They go with everything. I wanted to add some charm to the look so I wore jeweled earrings.

nyfw ss15: day 3

Instead of shopping before New York, I decided to wait until I got there. I had no clue what I was going to buy but I did know I wanted to wear all white. Finally on my last day of shows, I found the perfect white outfit. Since fall was right around the corner, I knew I wanted to wear a fall color as my pop of color. To continue the fall colors, I wore olive tie-up heels. I completed the look with gold accessories.

nyfw ss15: day two

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!
