Fringe Factor

Sunnies: c/o HERE | Denim fringe jacket: c/o HERE 
 White denim jeans: Similar HERE + another option HERE| Shoes: Kenneth Cole, sold out

Hey Babes!
Today's post is all about the denim fringe jacket you never knew you needed ๐Ÿ˜ No, but seriously - if you are a collector of denim jackets, this one may catch your eye! I have more than a few denim jackets/vests in my current inventory, however, none of them boast fringe detailing! I L๐Ÿ’–VE how the fringe takes center stage! 
I found the fit of the jacket to be a tad too large for my taste (I'm wearing a size 0XL), so I knotted it just above my waist and styled it as a crop top ๐Ÿ˜‰ This offered the exact fit that I envisioned! Always remember: In fashion, everything is fair game!
Until next time,

Off the Clock

Jumpsuit: c/o HERE| Purse: Old, another option HERE| Shoes: HERE + another option HERE 

Hey Babes!
Today's look features a wonderfully comfortable sweater jumpsuit. I snagged it c/o the team at Fashion to Figure, and boy am I glad that I did! This onesie is perfect for transitioning temperatures. Spring fashion is heavily on my mind! This look was made for mild days x chilly nights ๐Ÿ˜‰The weight on the knit is noticeably substantial, overall it has a quality feel. My favorite features are the off the shoulder top, double stripe design, and the fitted ankles. This jumpsuit can be easily dressed up or down --> depending on your style needs and preferences. Remember: Personal style is about YOU!
For reference, I am wearing a size 0XL, which is similar to a US numerical size 12. The cut on this piece is generous, if you'd like it to fit tight versus relaxed, you may prefer to size down.
All in all, I was loved how everything came together! I'm curious, how would you style this jumpsuit?!
Until next time,

Spring Style Options from Karen Kane

Outfit #1 (Navy dress)--> Velvet hat: Vintage| Earrings: Similar HERE| Dress: c/o HERE| Bag: ZARA| Shoes: ZARA, another option HERE
Outfit #2 (Floral kimono)-->Hat: Old,try HERE| Kimono: c/o HERE| Black dress: Old, longer option HERE| Shoes: Old, similar HERE

When the team at Karen Kane reached out to me to work together on a feature with their spring content, I seized the opportunity! If you're not familiar with the brand, you can find their designs at major retailers such as Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor, and Macy's. I would describe the brand's style aesthetic as a classic. They offer classic designs that are ideal for workwear, along with casual separates.
Today's blog post features how I styled two items from their spring lineup, specifically with the mindset of day to night wear. Without further ado, let’s get into the details!
For Look #1 I selected a navy tie-waist maxi dress styled with a surplice V-neck and stem-showing front slit. This dress is ideal for the office, however easily transcends into night wear with a few select accessories ๐Ÿ˜‰
For Look # 2, I selected a floral kimono with textural interest. We don’t often think of dark floral prints for spring fashion, but the light, airy feel and fabric of this one makes this an ideal option. I topped it over a tank style LBD (little black dress) plus added in black accessories to highlight the beautiful floral detail.

Which look is your personal favorite?

Here are a few additional spring style options from the brand that caught my eye:

Cheetah print top
Leopard print blazer
Cheetah print jumpsuit

Until next time Babes!

How to Style a Dress as a Shirt

Sunnies: F21| Dress: ZARA, alternative HERE
Jeggings: c/o Nic & Zoe + other options HERE 
Shoes: Similar HERE

Hey Babes,
You've probably noticed that I’m all for wearing shirts as dresses (see HERE & HERE) but you may not know that I like to rock dresses as shirts too (see HERE)! I've said this time and time again on the blog, but it is totally worth repeating: Versatility is EVERYTHING๐ŸŽฏ
I enjoy styling pieces that can serve a variety of style functions. This classic shirt dress is a great option for spring and summer. It's made of linen, which keeps you feeling nice & cool even when temperatures heat up. To wear it as a transitional piece - across seasons, I opted to style it with a pair of pants. 
Remember: In fashion, everything is fair game. Wear what makes YOU feel GOOD. 
Until next time,

Currently Coveting Spring

Hat: Similar HERE| Top: Free People, sold out
Skirt: Old, another option HERE| Shoes: Similar HERE

Hey YOU!
I know I've been a stranger around these parts (i.e. on my blog), it seems like one thing after another came up. In the midst of life unfolding, I struggled to sit down to create content for this space (more on that to come). 
However, with the first hints of SPRING staring me in the face, I find myself overflowing with excitement for warmer temperatures, and... more importantly -->WARM WEATHER FASHION!!!
Give me all the colors, print mixes, frills, lace, and feminine embellishments that I can handle PLEASE!
I snagged this crop top at a Nordstrom sale a few months back. I anticipated wearing it on a girl's trip, but alas the temperatures were too cold and I had to save it for another time. No worries, spring weather has made a few appearances here in LA ๐Ÿ˜‰ 
Summer is still my absolute favorite season, however I'm willing to concede that spring is a very close second ๐Ÿ˜. Are you looking forward to warmer weather as much as I am?
Until next time,
