Fanny Packing

Hello 2018! I'm excited to see what this New Year brings; new opportunities, trends, and a whole lot of outfits. I'm excited to share my styling and help inspire your wardrobes. Fashion and style to me is all about having fun expressing who you are. So, let's have fun this year!

One of my favorite trends this year is the belt bag also known as the fanny pack. Whatever you like to call it, it made a slight comeback last year but its coming full throttle in 2018.  This bag is so versatile and comes in so many styles; round, square, casual, dressy and in different colors. 

I have a few fanny packs but my favorite one is my Michael Kors bag. It has a square shape and MK written all over it. These bags are fun and can be worn casually or dressed up. I absolutely love them and I want to share with you a way you can rock the fanny with confidence.

A fanny pack is a great way to show off your curves or create a lovely shape. The bag acts like a belt and cinches at the waist creating an hourglass figure.

You can never go wrong with a monochromatic outfit. Black is chic and the fanny pack ads an interesting appeal to the overall look.

A Blazer, Hat, & Amour

You can never go wrong with a denim and t-shirt outfit combination. It’s super casual and great for on the go. But we all like to look a little more elevated and stylish and a blazer does just that. It’s not only for the office. It’s a great piece to add on to a casual outfit. It adds a tailored and put together finish to pretty much any look.

Lately, I’ve really been into hats. I love wearing cabby hats to big fedora hats. They are a great way to add that stylish appeal to your outfit. Plus it's a great for those bad hair days.

Let’s not forgot the accessories. I’ve really been gravitating tours accessories with western elements like studs, fringe, and buckles just like this double buckle belt. It’s a fun piece to have in your closet.

I completed this look with a pair of chunky patent leather booties and my all-time favorite accessory a pair of sunnies. This look is very comfy without sacrificing fashion and style.

A Simple Classic

There's nothing quite as all-American than a white t-shirt and blue jeans. Separately, they're versatile pieces but together they make a simple yet classic outfit that will never go out of style.

I was in LA last week and wanted to wear something simple and casual. I took a modern twist on this American classic by pairing my white crew neck with cropped wide leg jeans with a distressed hem.

The white tee and jean combo is effortlessly chic and is a combination that can be worn any day of the year and season. It's also very easy to layer over like I did with a blazer. I threw on a black blazer over my shoulders and finished the look with loafer mules.

These jeans were a fun DIY project. I bought wide leg jeans from Target and then cropped them. Here is a DIY video that helped me cut and distress my jeans (click here).

Cape Blazer

What was once only worn in the office is now worn has a fashion statement. A blazer is one of the most versatile closet staples you could own. A blazer adds an elegant and polished look to pretty much any outfit. I love that moment you put one on and instantly feel chic and put together.

Style Tip: A blazer is not just for the office. Blazers are very versatile. Try wearing one with some distressed jeans and t-shirt. Wear your favorite bodycon dress and throw on a blazer for a quick polished trick.

I stepped up my blazer game with this cape silhouette . I’m seriously obsessed with this white cape blazer from Fashion to Figure. I feel like a superhero! A blazer automatically dresses up a pair of jeans.  The cape adds this edgy and modern element to my outfit.  Adding heels and a belt dress up this look even more. This look works for a lunch or dinner date.
