This Yellow Ain’t So Mellow

You may not know this, but yellow is one of my favorite colors to wear. It's vibrant, beautiful, and looks great against my complexion. I hate that so many of us stop wearing it for Fall. Of course, traditionally the deep mustard yellows come out to play this time of year, but why not incorporate a spring yellow here and there?

I Broke an Old Fashion Rule

Five years ago, I would have only paired this sheer, dressy, polkadot blouse with trousers. Or - dress pants. My "dressy" clothes could only date other dressy clothes, because anything else just wouldnt' look right. Ha! How prejudice of me. Seriously, though, I thought that way. To be fair, it's really reminsce of old rules. Fashion "rules" like, brown and black don't match, never mix silver and gold, and always wear dress shoes with dresses. Well, today, fashion rules are kind of a thing of the past. We wear whatever we want and I think the mix of so many…

Postpartum Fall Clothing Haul and Try On

I'm FINALLY able to shop for myself post delivery!! I'm currently 8 weeks post pregnancy and am just now able to fit clothing that isn't maternity. Looking forward to my snapback, but for now I'm just taking my time and making sure my baby is healthy. Here's my first fall 2018 try on fashion haul video.

My New Favorite Converse

I've fallen in love, and this time, it's with a sneaker. The Comme des Garcon and Converse collaboration has been around 2009, and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere.  I'm late to the party, but I don't care.  They're cute, comfy, and give me a little hint of high fashion. I've paired it with some black high waisted leggings, a tank top, a scarf, and my favorite distressed denim jacket. Casual and killin' it.

Postpartum Athleisure

I'm just gonna say it. "Athleisure", THANK GOD it's trending. There are so many cute and comfy options to choose from now. As a new mom, I'm so grateful. Clothes like these are flexible, can get beat up, wash easily, and are simple to put together. The past few months I've been LIVING in tank tops and leggings.  It's such a blessing to be able to step outside of the house wearing the same thing, and not feel like a slob. All I needed was to layer some cute necklaces, fix my top knot bun, and head out.

How To Add Patterns and Prints to Your Wardrobe

Adding prints to your outfits can be an exciting way to update your wardrobe and personal style. For many, the idea of adding print can bring an element of fun and edge to an otherwise safe, neutral wardrobe. For others, the idea is intriguing, but the execution is a bit daunting. I’ve been on both sides, and I have three simple ways to help ease prints and patterns into any wardrobe like a pro.

Athletic Body Type Fashion Picks for Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday is here once again, so it's time to stock up on styles that look great on your athletic body. Most female muscular body types are broad in the shoulders, and narrow in the hips. This creates a kind of "inverted triangle" shape. The less amount of hip you have, the more important it is to find bottoms that create fullness along the pevlis.

Fall Fashion 2017 Trends You Need ASAP (Athletic Body Type Approved)

Fall is the season before nature goes into hibernation to wake up anew. It's also the season in which the most exciting fashion trends come alive and fashionistas can't help but splurge on their latest outfit inspirations. I am no exception. I watch tons of runways shows and read too many magazine articles and blogs during fall.  My mind begins buzzing with ideas that only indulging in a new pair of shoes or top can bring to life.

Black, White, and Bold

I love neutrals, but neutrals don't have to be boring. Finding a bold print or mixing cuts and textures is a great way to give an outfit spice. This skirt is not only in a bold black and white stripped print, but also an asymmetrical cut that draws attention to the ankle strap shoes. If you happen to have larger calves and ankles, like I do, try to keep the shoes slender and ultra feminine to balance out athletic legs...

Styling Yellow Trousers

When I originally bought these pants I thought, okay, I love yellow. My closet is full of so much black and grey that if I don't buy these I just need to quit life.  Seriously though, It's strange because I love color, but when I choose garments, I am always attracted to deep jewel tones, black, and grays.  I literally have to force myself to grab brighter colors and take them home.
