Stripes

Can you say oh la la. I feel like a girl in Paris in this outfit. The beret definitely adds that European flare but the whole outfit screams Paris (well at least in my head haha) I’m obsessed with this look. Everything from the lace detail on the blouse to the side slits of the pants. 

Stripes were strong during spring and summer and are even stronger for fall. Stripes in my opinion just never go out of style. There is just something about these vertical and horizontal lines that can add a preppy, nautical or an edgy vibe to your outfit. 

As a plus size girl I’ve been told to stay away from stripes but I’ve never been one to listen. I personally love anything striped. Stripes can be flattering to many body types. It’s all about the way you wear them. I personally love vertical stripes. I feel they are more flattering and elongate the body.

Let’s talk about these pants. First they’re a great deal at Target for only $32.99. They have an elastic waist and have some stretch to them. I feel super comfy in them and love how I can dress them up or down. The only con would be they are a little to long for me (I’m 5’3) but nothing a pair of heels can't fix.

This look is all about the pants, that’s why I keep the rest of my outfit simple. I paired the pants with a loose fitting button up blouse, a fun beret and heels. The sunglasses were my finishing touch that adds that edgy element I love.

Mini Skirts For Fall

Fall is finally here! It's the return of jackets, scarves, beanies and me. It has been some time since my last post but I'm glad to be back and have my first style post be for fall. 

Not only do pumpkin spice lattes return but it's the biggest season for fashion and trends. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm ready to give up one of my favorite summer trends, the mini skirt. 

Mini skirts were fun for summer and can continue to be fun for fall. Wear them with tights and hosiery for an easy summer to fall transition. The tights add a little warmth to your outfit. You can also pair mini skirts with a comfy sweater and booties for a stylish fall assemble.

I paired this skirt from Forever 21 with a black crew neck instead of a sweater since it's still a little warm in LA. One of my favorite fall trends from last year is back! Yes, I'm referring to over the knee boots. They made a statement last year and continue to do so paired with this button down skirt.

Cabbie hats are a huge trend for fall. They're comfy and versatile.  This faux suede cabbie hat compliments the look and adds that extra fall element.

Play Up Your Basics

Hi fashionistas! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and aren't too exhausted of all that shopping you did this past weekend.  It's been a while since I posted. I've missed you guys too much! I put together a fun outfit with just a little layering to it.

One of the things I love about fashion is the creativity. I like that you can put together two complete different designs and have it complement each other. You can take an old shirt and make it new again or take a basic top and make it eye-catching.

Basics are my favorite because you can dress them up or down.  This top from Hot Ginger LA is a basic long sleeve top with an edgy asymmetrical design. I dressed it up by layering a long chiffon blouse underneath. It completely changed the look of the long sleeve shirt.

It's all about this top in this outfit. I kept the rest of my outfit simple.  I completed my look with a pair of skinny jeans and pointy toe heels.

Edgy Plaid

Is it too soon to wear plaid? Let's face it plaid will be back every fall season. You'll see it on jackets, skirts, scarves, and so much more.  It's one my favorite patterns for fall. Instead of wearing it on a shirt that's tied around my waist, I went with a jogger.

Style Tip: If your jacket is a bit casual like a denim or utility jacket dress it up with a pair of heels.

I love mixing plaid with edgy pieces. This not so basic tee with a strappy detail from Forever 21 and this bomber jacket do the trick. Bomber jackets are  casual so a pair of heels dress up this look.

Step Into Fall

We have officially entered September. Where has the year gone? Seriously, next thing we know it we'll start holiday shopping. Fall is my favorite season. I love the colder weather, wearing; jackets, scarves, and boots. Since fall is just around the corner I wanted to share with you my fall must haves.

The bomber is fashion's new jacket. It's cool, sporty and can go with pretty much anything.  Wear it over-sized, embroiled, or in a funky color. It's a great must have for fall. This jacket from A'GACI is sleek and edgy. I love the sheer mesh sleeves. 

This fall, over the knee boots are in. This is one trend I'm happy to see again. They're an instant look-changer. They add a sexy and edgy appeal to an outfit. Wear them with a bodycon dress, short skirts, over-sized sweaters, or jeans- they're so versatile. These boots from A'GACI are to die for. I'm lusting over this color (they photographed in a grey color but are an olive color in person).  By the way It's a great color for fall and I love that these boots have a lace-up back to prevent them from falling. They still fall a little but not too much where I'm constantly pulling them up.
