“Shoe game strong.”

Hi all!  I hope everybody had a wonderful Easter last weekend!  I celebrated Easter Sunday as well as my sister’s birthday up in Tahoe with our closest friends and we had a blast!  We played in the snow (brrr…), hung out by the lake, did a little hike…it was the perfect weekend!  Now it’s back to reality, folks.  It’s the first of the month (Hello, April!) and it’s the weekend once more.  Time sure flies.

Anyways, let’s get down to business, shall we?  Are you looking to boost your shoe game up?  Do you ever get bored wearing the same ‘ol boring shoes over and over? Undeniably a yes for me, until I discovered sheer socks.  This is an offbeat shoe-styling trick that for sure stepped up my shoe game ultimately.  If you’re a little unsure, play it safe and stick with neutrals.  As for me, I love print so I went with sheer polka dots!  So fun!  I’m wearing a little slip dress here (subtle, but sexy!) with a structured blazer. My metallic oxfords are rather flashy and I feel that the black blazer along with the matching black socks sets the tone down a bit.   Chic and cool AF!  Give it a try if you’re feeling fashionably adventurous!

Have a great weekend, everyone!  XO ❤

“Happy Love Day!”

It’s Valentine’s day!  Do you have any plans for today/tonight?  In need of a last-minute going out/date outfit?  I’ve got you covered.  Something easy and not the usual cliché (cherry red!) that will make you arrive in style without looking like a Valentine’s day enthusiast!

Instead of wearing a red dress, I opted for darker colors: an oversized black blazer with a little peek of my bralette showing and a silver metallic pleated skirt with black pumps. If skirts don’t tickle your fancy, you can also do a leather pant or even denim and still look effortless!  For my flirty details, I added touches of pinks and blushes throughout. Not too much, but just enough to compliment the darks and for contrast.  Accessory tip:  statement earrings can easily add glam and polish such a simple look.  I wanted a fresh-faced look so I kept my makeup soft and finished it off with a cute little topknot!

Hope you guys like my no-fuss look for Valentine’s day.  It’s sweet without looking over the top!  Have fun celebrating love day. ❤

“White is my new Black”

I have quite a confession to make: I own a lot of black.  Black tops, bottoms, shoes etc. You name it, I will mostly likely have it in black.  Haha!  Why black?  Because anything in black looks good until I realized that white is JUST AS GREAT!  As much as I love black’s simplicity and slimming effect, I am equally partial to any white ensemble. White is classic, crisp, and eye-catching.  I picked up this white blazer and I plan to wear it as much as possible.  There are so many ways to wear this season’s must-have.  It can easily take you from work (with a tailored pant and pumps) to a girls’ night out (with leather skinnies and a simple tank) to the weekend (with boyfriend jeans and flats or sneakers).  I wore my white blazer with a blue silk jumpsuit and paired it with metallic pumps.  I also added some gold details with my jewelry because I love how gold looks against white.  We all know how easily dirt can get on whites so I do recommend keeping Tide To Go Pens on hand just in case, but other than that, there’s no cooler way to dress!  White is oh so right! ❤
