Namaste

With the winter chill in the air, we have no other option but to bundle up…but there is no need to settle for the basic style jackets we have seen over and over again.

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

I do not know about you, but I definitely have found love in this graphic oversized tee designed by Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci.  What really interests me is that Tisci gets a majority of his inspiration from the streets and the diverse culture of America. As a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology….I spent four years studying different ideologies of society and the deeper meanings behind both human relationships and institutions.  I thought of sociology after I watched a brief video I found on the internet (that you can watch here) Tisci takes his personal thoughts and experiences and dives into his creative work. You may see repetitive symbols such as stars, Bambi, basketball, rottweiler’s, and even sayings such as the one on today’s tee “I Feel Love”…and they all hold meanings.

It only makes sense that I went with a very distressed and streetstyle look with denim, black booties, and a black leather choker. These Fendi bug Chelsea boots are my latest shoe purchase and I just am TOO obsessed!! Anyway…you can get this look and similar by shopping below:

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Patch Things Up

Your 70s style inspo starts with a jumpsuit…and ends somewhere between patchwork embellishments and vintage finds. The appliques on this pair of dungarees are lighthearted and they add a special touch. I tied a vintage Celine scarf around my neck and added white low top converse for a pieced together look and timeless appeal.

I am headed to Aruba next week and I definitely can see myself traveling in this number (or one of my many other vacation finds) because 1. it is comfortable and 2. most importantly… very cute. 

You see patches on everything these days from denim, to tee’s, and even sneakers…you can even buy them separate to DIY. Shop today's look and other adorable finds below:

This orange cotton sweater is the perfect now-and-later- layer. With the weather so up and down lately, getting dressed in the morning can be pretty confusing. With that being said, today I added an optional blazer and a simple pair of jeans. What I am really loving is this vibrant statement cuff found on sale at J.Crew for around $8 (so crazy). It is the little things like this that can make transitioning a little easier. Thanks for stopping by!! XOXO

With summer coming to a close and fall right around the corner we all have one thing in mind…transitional dressing. Sometimes it can be the worst especially when it comes to shoes!!

When I think about shifting into fall, I start to wear more neutrals. It is important to remember there are more neutrals than just your black, gray, and beige shades. Think olive green, mustard yellow, burgundy, etc.

It is still very hot out so I am sticking to cooler clothing for now. When the temperature starts to change, a silk romper like the one I am wearing today can easily be paired with an oversized sweater.
