I hope you're all having a wonderful morning so far! I wanted to share a look with you that I hope will inspire you as we transition to spring. Although we are officially in spring, it hasn't been feeling much like it. However, there are a few colors that can be worn right now, despite the low temps, nudes and browns. What I love about these colors are that they can be worn all year long! You can wear a complete nude look for a softer and polished look, or you could add some darker hues into the mix, as I did here. Either way, you're sure to have a look that would be suitable this time of year!
On a side note, I've mentioned before how I love suede for spring, since it's lighter than your typical leather jacket. It's a different form of leather that I think is perfect this time of year and for the months to come because it's lighter. Below are some of my favorites, in case you're in the market for an addition to your wardrobe ;)
With lots of love,

I hope you're all having a great start to the week! Today's post is a look that I wore to my sister-in-law's birthday party yesterday. It was pretty chilly, but I was able to get away with wearing this look, since I was going to be indoors much of the time and the chunky scarf helped keep me warm. I must admit, I've been itching to wear my spring clothing so bad, since we've had such an intense winter; I'm so ready to say farewell to the cold!
I decided to go for a denim on denim pairing, which will keep you pretty warm and stylish at the same time. This is a trend that was popular during the 90s and has made a comeback and I'm happy it has, since I love the look. It can be dressed up by adding a pair of heels and perhaps a button down chambray or dressed down like this with a vest and oxfords, either way, you're sure to get the most out of your denim this season!
This particular pairing is perfect for all body shapes, so I wouldn't suggest you change anything if you were considering recreating it. Below are some denim vests that I like and would suggest, if you haven't got one in your wardrobe or would like to add. The one I'm wearing is a recent purchase and I'm so glad I got it! I know I'll be styling it in so many ways as the weather starts to get nicer!
With lots of love,

It's the second day of spring and let me just say, it doesn't feel or look like it at all here in New York. Yesterday, we had snow and it's been freezing; I don't remember it ever being like that in years past. It's so weird because last week had days that felt more like spring. I guess winter doesn't want to let go! With that, I've been hesitant to pack away my winter pieces, which includes my chunky cowl neck sweater I'm wearing here. Since it hasn't been that cold that I needed to wear a heavy coat, I opted for some basic layering to keep me warm. One of my favorite ways to wear a fur (faux) vest during the fall and start of spring, is to layer it over a leather jacket. It provides some dimension and of course, added warmth. I feel this look would be great for a night out on the town, if you're experiencing some colder weather, which I know many of you are; I've read some posts on Instagram!
On another note, how awesome is the graffiti on this wall, which has such a great message, "all we got is us." It's so true. All we have in life is each other, we all need one another, yet many people tear each other down in so many ways. We can change this, though. Let's purpose to be kind and treat others how we'd like to be treated, which will then spark a change in who we meet (hopefully) and so it will continue and maybe, just maybe, the world can become a better place :)
Have a fun and chic weekend!
With lots of love,

Spring will officially arrive tomorrow! With that, there are some key pieces and colors that I think are perfect as we begin to transition over from winter, one of which is suede. It's a great piece to have and wear during spring because it will still keep you warm, since it's leather, yet the texture is lighter, softer and comfortable to move around in. Plus, it's a great option for a daytime to look, if you didn't want to wear a darker leather jacket. I personally prefer a suede jacket in a lighter color, such as pink or nude because they enhance the spring like feel. Plus, they blend easily with an array of colors!
In this look, I'm wearing a blush toned faux suede jacket with a waterfall effect; a softer alternative to a motto style jacket. I paired it with a fairly neutral palette and a pop of pattern in my scarf, for some extra warmth and interest. Since I wanted to go for a softer, more daytime feel, I decided to wear a medium washed jean. You've heard me mention many times how light-medium washes gives off not only a spring/summer feel, but also a more daytime feel, because it's lighter. This may be something you want to keep in mind when creating a casual spring outfit, if you've ever questioned which of your rinses are best during this time of year. Since we are still transitioning, you can of course continue to wear your darker washes, so don't put them away just yet!
I hope you found this post helpful and that it inspired you in recreating it! Below is an alternative option for my apple shapes as well as those who have longer legs and a shorter torso and wish to visually lengthen it. I am wearing a version that would be suitable for the pear, rectangular, and hourglass shapes.
With lots of love,

Today's post is one that I feel truly represents my personal style; glam and girly! I often say that when you don't know what to wear, black and white are sure to come to the rescue! What I love about these two classic color pairings, is that there are so many pieces that incorporate both, essentially making it much easier to look polished and put-together, even if you weren't necessarily trying, like with this faux fur coat! I believe faux fur pieces are essential in every woman's closet, regardless of her personal style because they can be worn and styled in so many different and unique ways that will be sure to exude the mood of choice. When it's a black and white fur, the possibilities are truly endless! To make the look more glam, I paired it with an embroidered top and wide legged jeans. I need to get myself a pair of black aviators because that would've really completed the look, which still looks great without, but would've looked better :) I always suggest pointed-toe shoes when wearing wide legged denim because I feel it counteracts the width when some length is added.
Below are some suggestions I created on wearing a fur coat for your body shape, I hope you find it helpful! PS: I'm wearing the pear shape version :)
With lots of love,
