Coral and Ivory Look


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY H&M AND SHEIN BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

One of the hottest colors trending this summer is the lovely coral pink. But what colors go best with this bold, vibrant hue? And in a modest, elegant way? Sure, colors like gold, teal, turquoise, even navy are great combinations to perfectly blend more rich colors. But I’m not a wedding table top. Ha ha! Loud colors together can be too much sometimes, which is why I chose to style a white shade that I think goes so well with coral. Meet ivory. It’s another color that’s currently happening, which you’ll also see a lot of this fall. Continue on to see how I styled this particular summer look, accessorized with trendy styles while still remaining true to my style.

While ivory is still part of the mix to the coral shade in this look, with the cargo skirt and marble statement earrings, any other white shade even the color, white, is a great color combination with the pink hue of coral. One trendy shoe style this summer? Anything platform. I love these white summer sandals because of this reason. The cute buckle detailing as well plays nicely with the other colors as well as bringing a contrast with the delicate cami top.

Another trend in accessories this summer are straw handbags. To be honest, they are always on point during this season. They complement with many summer looks - and I have nothing but love for them. This bag is a combination between two different brands. The straw crossbody is from Teddy Ondo Ella, when I had attended their show a couple of years ago during NYMFW and received the bag as a gift. They no longer make them, which is something I also love because it feels more like one of a kind. The chain strap is from a Korean handbag brand, Gu De. I styled the chain with the straw bag to give it a nice mixture amongst everything else. Here is a link to the most similar straw bag I came across - very boho and still you can style it with different kind of straps as I did.

How to Style Rainbow Pom Pom Sandals


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHICWISH AND AVEC MODERATION BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

Avec Modération is a Florence-based footwear brand that focuses on fusing fine Italian luxury with the utmost comfort. Each pair is entirely handmade from opulent fabrics and designed with the fashion-forward cosmopolitan woman in mind. The label’s aesthetic is elegant yet whimsical, presenting wearers with a unique take on the current season’s key footwear trends. The founders have a penchant for decadence, so you can expect a range of slides with bursts of bright colors and bouts of fur, tied together in an ultra-wearable silhouette. Case in point: These peony rainbow calf leather pom pom slippers. They are the ultimate pair of sandals for summer! Continue reading to see how to style these types of colorful, lively sandals and where to shop these beauties as well.

I wanted to style these bold rainbow slides in a simple, chic manner. Nothing too over the top, as it can easily turn from stylish to Bozo the clown. This beautiful sheer white maxi dress with 3D cotton embellished definitely complements with the pom-pom material from the sandals. With a self-tied string around the waist, it is a very flattering dress for many body types. Originally $100 it’s on sale with 40% off right now! I love the elegance of the dress - definitely has some character don’t you think? They also have a cream-colored dress as well here.

I think if you stuck to one solid color, such as yellow or red would also look great with these beautiful rainbow pom-pom sandals. Definitely beach appropriate so long as you don’t take a dip in the water with them. Definitely would look cute with jeans and a cami of some kind, or a beach wrap. There’s many ways to style these sandals for the warmer season. I found them for $235 on Far Fetch. Again, they’re luxury footwear so the price is right. I definitely wouldn’t recommend walking for miles in them around the city, for example. This is not the type of shoes for that.

To keep with the happy colors, I went with a yellow o-ring bag from Iridescence New York and a pair of purple leather covered hoop earrings from Shop Small Things. I think the two variated colors keep with the rest of the color scheme without having the palette become too noisy/busy. I always loved yellow and purple together as I’m a die hard Lakers fan, lol. Just a random tidbit for you guys :) I’ve also linked a couple other similar bags with different price points and locations.

If you’re still not convinced of these rainbow pom-pom sandals, Avec Modération also makes them in a variety of colors as well such as this pink one and also a white and cream one. I’ve listed them all down here for easy viewing. How would you have styled these fun rainbow pompom sandals? There’s so many ways, let’s hear from you guys! Thanks for stopping by and wishing everyone a wonderful start to a new week. Cheers, my loves. x

How to Wear the Rust Color Trend for Summer


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY SHEIN & LINZI BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

When it comes to a summer palette, you normally see vibrant bold colors of coral, hot pink, yellows and oranges, but rust? This summer’s hottest trending color is everywhere! And rightfully so. It can be paired with a variety of colors, textures and more. In today’s post, I’m getting down on how to wear the rust color trend for summer - easy peasy and oh, so chic! I’ve got some really stylish yet affordable accessory pieces too - get the entire look for under $87! And every single piece in my outfit can be worn than once, which is a definitely must in my wardrobe. Come check out the summery vibes - are you ready for the heat?

Would you believe it if I told you the white knit rib top and rust-colored pants are only $27?! I find whites complement well with the rust color. Other shades that would love marvelous with rust are blue, green, purple, red and black. These are more fall/winter-oriented colors, which is also why I went for a white top. This tank top is super comfy and quite airy for a knitted top. I love the pleated pants as well. It came with a belt, but I optioned it out for today’s look so the ruffles on the waist would be less stiff for a laidback, relaxed look.

I kept my accessories very neutral to let the pants shine in the spotlight, like this H&M net bag that has a salmon/coral/beige tone to it that’s perfect for summer. You can use it everywhere: For groceries/the farmer’s market, the beach, and so much more. I like that the material is a little heftier than usual net bags, so you can pack other more sturdy items like books without a problem. That’s kind of a pre-requisite when it comes to Suz, ha ha. I always have some sort of reading material on me, let it be newspapers, magazines, journals, and more - ya girl always has it on her ;)

I’m not going to lie. When I think of perspex material with shoes, I normally find them kind of tacky. Something a stripper would wear, especially if they’re sky-high. LOL! BUT - I definitely wanted to prove that they can also look sexy chic if styled the right way. Enter: These beauties from Linzi Shoes. These soft, white patent all over perspex heels with a glass block heel will sultrify any outfit, whether jeans, a dress or skirt - it’ll definitely raise some temperatures. They’re definitely not an everyday wear kind of heel or even walking material, but for a sexy date night, you can count on these to be your wing woman.

How would you styled these gorgeous pair of rust-colored pleated pants? I would definitely wear these again for the fall/winter season with a good chunky sweater and boots. These pants would also rock with bodysuits and sheer blouses/camis. Ooooh, a cardigan as well. See how the possibilities are endless? The earrings are from Mulberry & Grand, but are no longer in stock. I’ve linked a similar pair that are only $6 bucks but look like they’re worth much more. Don’t forget to check out these pieces from this summer look! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s outfit post. Have a great rest of your week!

Happy Monday! Enjoying the last weeks of summer before September kicks into full gear. And you know what that means, kids... time to go back to school! Many of you will be needing school supplies before heading to class, and I've got the perfect back-to-school backpack for you this year! These backpacks are made out of 100% recycled water bottles. So on top of picking out a new backpack for the school year, you'll also be helping out the environment as well. How cool is that?! Continue reading to get more info on where to find these backpacks - including details from this beachy outfit! 

Parkland is the name. They make bags from bottles. There are backpacks, duffles, and totes. And more. All made with 100% recycled water bottles, they come in a variety of colors and prints. I went with one with aquatic-like colors. Perhaps I'm not quite ready to let go of summer, haha! The Meadow Backpack offers versatility for work, school or travel. With enough room for your 15” laptop and your day's essentials, you'll be ready to seek out your next adventure. They even carry mini backpacks for the little ones and even adorable lunch boxes, should you be looking for a new one. 

I just loved this beachy tee when I saw it. Even though "staying salty" isn't something I go running around promoting, but I love wordplay and this shirt is perfect for a day at sea! I styled it with a rich blue paisley bandana and short shorts from Forever 21. I thought the blue accents worked well with the pastels of the backpack, and the white of the shirt ties it all together. (No pun intended.) The turquoise belt is from Most Wanted USA and my sunnies are from the streets of SoHo. Literally picked them up at a flea market for $20!

Us New Yorkers are enduring a major heat wave, where temps rose past 100°F. I'm not one to embrace such hot days like these, where the humidity and scorching heat literally makes me sick. I get headaches and feel completely lethargic, no matter how hydrated I am! Plus I'll have little to no appetite and trouble focusing from feeling "hazy" from the weather. Any tips/suggestions on how to feel more energized during the dog days of summer? Even though the weather has me feeling a bit bleh, I won't let that get in the way of my style and mood! In today's outfit post, I am all about color! I just recently celebrated my 12-yr dating anniversary with the hubs where we went to our favorite restaurant in all of NYC for dinner. After all that we have been through, I think it's only a miracle we're still together. And we've been through it all. I know a lot of you are asking more about me and my husband so I'm thinking of doing a post dedicating that for you guys, as well as a better chance getting to know us! To say I'm happy is an understatement. Continue reading to learn more about this vibrant summery outfit that totally goes with my current mood and where to shop the look!

In case you missed this Instagram post, I was wearing a dress from one of my favorite places in the entire world. Target. Yes, folks. You can look stylish while shopping at "Tar-jeh"! And can you believe this rainbow-striped pleated skirt in this post today is only $30?! It has a matching long-sleeved top if you want to match with the bottom, but I opted with warm orange tones like coral and neon orange. I have had this shirt for years and adore the details of the buttons in the front. It definitely brings something to this look.  

These shoes are my favorite at the moment. I don't wear many pairs of heels because one I'm too old to be running around the city in heels all day long and two, like every woman who has certain insecurities about herself, my feet are definitely not my most favorite feature on my body. But after putting these heels on, I felt like a million bucks! They're sexy, edgy, colorful and only $40. What more could you want in a shoe for summer? 

Other accessories include this blue ostrich bag, orange tortoise sunnies and these asymmetric earrings by one of my favorite jewelry brands here in New York City. What do you guys think of this "Rainbow Brite" summery look? Don't forget to shop the look at the beginning or the end of this post. Got questions? Just want to say hi?
