Valentine’s Day Date Night Style

February 14, 2017  |  Fashion 35 comments

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you’re taking some time to indulge yourself today, whether it’s with chocolate, flowers, a night on the town, or Netflix for one. One of my favorite things about celebrating a holiday is the festive atmosphere, which usually involves dressing up. So I thought I’d share a little Valentine’s Day date night style. Check out how I styled this gorgeous pink origami-style wrap skirt from Finery London.

Styling Bold Colors

Since pink and red are synonymous with the celebration of romance, I thought I’d go all in. The trick to wearing two bright colors together? Well red and pink are a divine combination. But if you want subtlety, I suggest featuring one color in a statement piece, like this pink skirt. Then accent the rest of the outfit with pops of the other color: a red belt, clutch and heels in this case. This look isn’t complete without a skinny red belt, a fabulous way to break up two solid colored pieces.

LA Style with Tobi

February 7, 2017  |  Fashion 30 comments

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean short shifts are out. I’ve paired printed floral tights with a nude layered dress from Tobi, an online fashion boutique inspired by LA style that offers sexy, cool looks for less.

While this nude dress would look fabulous with a pair of nude strappy heels, I thought it would be fun to think outside the box. This simple nude shift, now under $30, gets a bold makeover with pops of navy and patterned tights. The best part of the dress? The criss-cross layer in front and the sizing, which fit me to a tee. This shift also comes in black and blush.

Comm-Ci Leggings

February 3, 2017  |  Entrepreneurs 28 comments

Five women all had the same style problem. With hectic lives, they sought clothes that were fashionable, could meld to their bodies, and were still comfortable. They created Comm-ci fashionable leggings: a line of modern, high-quality leggings for any of life’s purposes be it work, play, or everything in between.

These leggings fit into my favorite style niche: comfy chic. If it’s something I can sleep in and get away with wearing all day, I’m sold! Here are some of the reasons why I’m a fan of my Comm-ci leggings.

What I Love

  1. The lycra-cotton blend is high quality. The material provides an easy stretch, which molds well to your body. It’s also slightly silky so it doesn’t itch or chafe.
  2. There is also a Modal fiber component, which wicks away sweat, making the leggings breathable.
  3. The top band folds over, which is great if you happen to indulge in a few extra cupcakes. The band is an instant tummy tucker. (Also great for pregnant women to wear as maternity clothing.)
  4. While the traditional legging fit is available, there is also a straight leg fit. The straight leg gives the illusion of a regular pant, but feels like pajamas. These are great for a professional setting too.

Navy and Black

January 31, 2017  |  Fashion 36 comments

Today, I’m mixing it up with navy and black. Who says you can’t wear blue and black together? This navy cardigan (now 40% off) is a great wardrobe staple. Rather than pairing it straight up with all black, I chose the black and white patterns of houndstooth pants (also styled here) and snakeskin loafers. The lighter black palette mixed with white is a great way to pair black with navy, allowing the navy to pop.

These snakeskin loafers got some extra love on Instagram, so I thought I’d share some good news about them. Originally $45, they are now on sale for only $14. Sounds too good to be true, right? They go with just about everything and are slowly replacing my snakeskin slides. Yup, I have two pairs of snakeskin flats. That either means I have too many shoes and need an intervention, or I know what I love and go after it. I prefer the latter haha. Happy shopping!

Ruffle Neck Top

January 27, 2017  |  Fashion 32 comments

Happy Friday! Keeping it simple today in a Victorian inspired top and denim. This ruffle neck top is only $30. For the girl on the go, it’s easy to style with denim and be out the door in minutes.

A little bit of ruffle and statement sleeves are what makes this top so fun. A cream and gold palette creates a streamlined look and neutral tan suede booties complete the outfit. Effortless, simple and chic style is my favorite.
