With or Without a Bra?

As a busty girl, it can be difficult to wear those cute tops that are meant for you to go bra-less or wear with a strapless bra. I myself can't do both. Let's just say gravity is not my best friend... haha. 

Fashion Nova sent over this cute top and comfy pair of white jeans from their new Summer ‘17 Collection. I love the ruffle detail and off the shoulder design of the top. This is a top that you might want to go bra-less or wear with a strapless bra. Because that's not an option for me I wore my bra and layered a vest to hide the straps. Just by layering a little bit we don't have to avoid those strapless little numbers.

I love how this outfit turned out. I threw on a pair of single strap heels and rolled up the jeans. A pair of clear frame sunglasses gave this look and edgy touch and completed the outfit.

Rock the Skort

Many trends from the 90's have made their way back like chokers and slip dresses. One of the 90's biggest trends that we tend to forget about is the skort. It's both a skirt and shorts. The design is unique with the skirt on the front that overlaps the shorts. They're fun and functional. You can dress them up with a pair of heels or dress them down with sneakers.

I honestly love the skirt design on the front because it hides your shorts when they start to rise up. The flap over the shorts kind of acts like a cover up (haha).

I wanted to bring back the skort this season and put together a dressy yet casual outfit. I paired my skort with a pinstripe button down blouse and tucked in the front. I completed my look with peep toe booties and aviators. This combo was easy to put together and very stylish.

Fall Colors for Spring

You might think darker tones are best for fall but they can work for any season. It all depends on the fabric. You wouldn't wear a fur jacket in spring but a light weight duster instead.

I personally prefer to wear darker colors- can you blame me I love black. This burgundy sweater is perfect for spring because it's lightweight. I wore this outfit last week at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Monterey Park. The event was fun! Full of people, food, and shopping!

I can't take all the credit for this look. My Stitch Fix stylist sent over this top and booties. I completed the look with black jeans and a hat. I had fun with accessories and layered some necklaces and finished this outfit with some sunnies.​

Yes, Wear Stripes!

I adore all sorts of stripes: horizontal, vertical, sideways or anyways. I say wear, love, and embrace them. There isn't a set of rules on how to rock stripes. Wear what makes you feel great.

I'm currently obsessed with black and white stripes! They're considered a neutral like leopard. They go with everything!

You might stay away from horizontal lines because they can make you look bigger or wider. Vertical strips do the opposite. Instead of making you look wider they elongate the body.

As a short girl wearing culottes can make me look shorter (unless I wear super high heels). By wearing culottes with horizontal stripes the lines make my body look longer.

This jumpsuit runs big. I usually wear an  XL/1X but I bought this one in a Large.

bell sleeve top, night out, style, date night

A Top with Style

Save the drama for your blouse. Nothing can elevate an outfit like a top with a little style. Flowy tops, bell sleeves, and lace details add that stylish and chic element to you outfit. Wear them for a casual lunch with friends or date night.

My personal favorites are bell sleeves. I love that they have so much movement and add drama to an outfit.  Let the sleeves do all the talking and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Like, I did here. I paired the top with faux leather pants and black single strap heels. This makes a perfect night out outfit. 

​I bought this top last year at ZARA and it's not available anymore. You don't necessarily need this top to add a little style to your wardrobe. I put together 5 options below that will add that WOW factor to your look.
