My Favorite (very) Affordable Black Friday Deals…

I've taken some time to put together a shopping list of items from my favorite affordable retailers. Boohoo is currently having a 60% off everything sale. Gap has 50% off everything, plus an extra 10% off coupon on the homepage of their site that is applied immediately with the click of a button. Missguided, a UK based site, has 50% off storewide. I love shopping there for unique instagramable pieces. Forever 21 is offering 30% off and free shipping. I shop there for inexpensive trendy pieces. Sometimes I'll test if I like a style before investing in the style in…

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…

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.
