Simple Colors

Somehow, the summer seems like a distant memory. It’s funny how time seems to fly when you’re not paying attention.  School is in full swing, I’m already feeling like I need to catch up on homework, and my early morning effort put into my clothing decisions is at a minimum.  However, minimal and simple outfits can still be kept fashionable when put together correctly.  My brain still feels like it’s in summer mode, so bright and fun colors seemed like the only way to reminisce.  I’ve already started to think and plan for those wonderful three little months next year, when you can do anything, be anything without the constraints of class, essays, and reading holding you back. But I do love school and all the opportunities that go along with it.   I have an exciting new internship that I hope to share with you all soon.  But for now, dress like summer in bright, simple colors before the heat wave is months in the future.

Sophisticated Skinny Jeans

Denim always seems to slip its way into all of my outfits, no matter the occasion.  From classic jeans worn to class or work, to a tote or jacket, denim is here to stay.  Especially for someone younger like myself, who is just starting to enter the workforce, putting together outfits may seem difficult especially when still trying to remain youthful.  However, I have found that a dark wash, streamline pair of skinny jeans paired with a nice blouse, classy shoes, and fresh tresses is the perfect ensemble for a day in the office.  Skinny jeans can make your outfit youthful, trendy, sophisticated, and can so easily be dressed up or down.  They are a must have and absolute closet staple {I recommend a couple pairs in different washes and colors}  When it comes to buying skinny jeans, I always follow a couple rules: cut, color, and individuality.  Make sure your jeans hug you in all the right places — no pinching, squeezing, or muffin tops.  Secondly, have variety in denim color with some being more distressed than others.  Lastly, have fun with it — find jeans that speak to you and your style.  My favorite pair of skinnies are high-rise, dark green, and have a blue tuxedo stripe down the side!

Lovely Finds

Possibly my most favorite runway piece from the Milan runway shows!  Fendi sure knows how to make a stunning spring, summer sandal.  5.  A homemade, gooey cookie straight out of the oven is my treat of choice — it brings back so many childhood memories.  6.  I have always been an animal lover cats, dogs, frogs, everything.  I have to admit, besides the women’s fashion on Pinterest, the animal category is my go-to especially when I need a smile on my face.

Distressed Denim

I am the type of person that enjoys change — changing seasons, styles, environments.  The unknown and unending anticipation, always evokes a sense of excitement for me.  This past weekend I’ve been very busy moving back down to Los Angeles for school, so unfortunately my time dedicated to blogging has been cut short.  I am slowly acclimating to my new surrounds and trying to find my daily routine.  This Fall heat wave took me by surprise despite the changing colors and leaves falling to the ground.  For the upcoming season, I think I have found my go-to ‘casual chic uniform’  consisting of ripped jeans {though they may be swapped out for shorts if the heat continues} a silk blouse, and natural hued accessories!  Finding the perfect pair of worn out boyfriend jeans has always been a struggle for me — too ripped, too baggy, wrong cut — until recently  when my mom decided to abandon her favorite pair of old Hudson jeans.  Naturally distressed denim, soft to the touch, and fitted in all the right places, these turned out to be just what I was needing.

NYFW: Hints of Lemon

lemon yellow, nyfw 2015, spring trendsEvery year when the shows come around I find so much excitement scrolling through the runway looks and watching, then re-watching all the videos.  I guess you could say trend spotting is one of my favorite pass times.  This year I was overjoyed when my favorite color {a light, yet neon-esque lemon color} was spotted on the runway multiple times. Yellow is probably one of the harder colors to wear but it always seems to make any look so happy and sunny.  Some of my favorite hints of lemon  that showed up during NYFW were at Nanette Lepore, DvF, and Carolina Herrera.

Contrasting Colors

Even on days when I only feel like wearing sweats and my hair pulled back in a pony {sans make up} I still try to wear something that looks halfway presentable.  I think that is the problem with most of us — it’s not that we don’t have cute clothes to wear or personal style, it’s just that we get lazy.  But because of the wise words of Coco Chanel and selectivity in the closet, I now have a couple go-to looks that are put together and make a statement, but with out trying to hard.  One of the most effortless ways to make a statement is with contrasting colors.  Color blocking is so fashionable and can easily still make you feel like you just rolled out of bed in your pajamas.  Find soft jeans in bright hues, a plush white tee, bold accessories, and you’ve got yourself a stylish ensemble.

“I don’t understand how a women can leave the house without fixing herself up a little, if only out of politeness.  And then you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny.   And it is best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” – Coco Chanel
