Welcome to Spring

Hello, Everyone!!!

It may be Spring however mother nature has been playing a cruel joke on us in the Tri-state area. You know something is wrong when you still able to wear your favorite winter clothes blended in with your favorite fall clothes as picture below. At the beginning of the week I found myself wearing a oversized turtleneck dress with cognac over the knee boots and my camel cape  I felt I could get away with wearing it as a dress to embrace the "no pants trend" made popular by celebs. However I do not have the luxury of the warm weather as in LA, so I paired the dress with thick opaque tights for warmth. I've changed up the look up by belting the dress with a cognac skinny belt which matches the oversized bag rather than the over the knee boots. Since the weather can be unpredictable from early morning to mid afternoon, I've made a conscious decision to wear my hair in a high bun. It allows me to protect my natural hair from unnecessary heat damage.

Dress: H&M
Cape: Forever 21
Belt: Forever 21
Boots: Shoedazzle (Lelia Stone)
Bag: Forever 21
Scarf: Target
Lipstick: NYX (Eden)

Until next time, XOXO

Off The Wall

Hello, Everyone!!!.
This entire outfit is surrounded by this new bag that I received as a birthday gift from my best friend of more than ten years. I love unexpected gifts that are the best !!!. I must say she knows my style very well. I was in dreary need of a new black tote so it came at the perfect time. I was able to forgo a coat on Friday, it was an amazing spring- like weather last week, I was able to bring out my spring jackets and coats including this cape blazer. I wanted to showcase the cape blazer by pairing it with a pair of skinny jeans for a slimming effect. I decided to layer a leopard printed shirt underneath that I button to the top which I accesorized with a multi-layered silver necklace.

Two Times The Charm

Hello, Everyone !!!!.

I know I've mentioned in a blog post late last year about how happy I was when I came across these culottes at Target.  I was even more elated when the creators of Who What Wear collection for Target created their own version of culottes. I was happy that it was one less thing i had to buy off my shopping checklist. I kept the silhouette simple with black and white with a few new extras including a pussy bow blouse, floppy hat and moto - jacket.

Outfit Details:
Top: Daffy's
Culottes: Target
Jacket: Target
Booties: H&M
Bag: Forever 21

Goodbye February, Hello March

Hello, Everyone!!!.
It is the second week of March but lately its feeling more like the end of April. I can't not believe we are only two weeks away from Spring and I've been loving the spring preview this week with record breaking temperatures in the 70's. At the moment I am preparing some spring ready outfits that I can't wait to wear this week. In February, however I embraced some spring-like outfits in winter by ditching tights with skirts and occasionally wearing capes instead of winter coats. My favorite outfits that I wore in February has to be the striped midi skirt outfit and my birthday outfit, they both got positive reviews from my classmates and strangers on the street. Another one of my favorites was  this jacquard print cardigan/ cape from H&M because I am such a fan of wearing statement outerwear with a simple outfit.

Casual Days

Hello, Everyone!!!
Mondays can be such a drag, and sometimes you do not want to get out of bed or dress up.  Particularly this past Monday I had to mentally prepared myself to take two important biology exams early in the morning  soI wanted to dress as comfortable as possible. When I woke up I had a whole different look in mind but decided to start with a pair of leather pants which in my opinion you can never go wrong as your foundation piece. I paired the leather pants with a white t-shirt and my boyfriend's hoodie which fits like a longline oversized hoodie on me. It was a pretty warm and breezy day so I ditched the winter coat for a leather jacket that I paired with a faux fur vest.

Faux fur vest: Banana Republic
Hoodie: Urban Outfitters
T-shirt: Target (Not shown)
Leather jacket: Shein

Suede Moto

Hello, Everyone!!!!.

As I mentioned before, I had my eyes on the suede cobalt blue moto jacket from the Who What Wear for Target collection. At first I went  on my desperate search online to find it but to no avail. However it must've been fate because I found it at my local Target store and as luck would have it was the last one, clearly it was waiting for me!!!. The bright and bold color injects new life into a suede moto jacket. Recently I've been on a suede kick and I want everything in the luxurious material, I already have suede culottes, leggings and a dress. This jacket is awesome it is a style step above the traditional camel moto jacket. I wore a white shirtdress as a top with a pair of high waisted trousers and black booties. I will be wearing this jacket until spring for sure.

Jacket: Who What Wear for Target
Dress (worn as top): H&M
Pants: H&M
Boots: Aldo X Target
Necklace: H&M
Lipstick: Colourpop (Beeper)
