Hot Pink Monochromatic Outfit


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY PUBLIC DESIRE BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

What day of the week do you wear pink? A lot may say Wednesdays but why not on a Monday? I love the idea of kicking the start to the week with a splash of color. And a color I rarely wear - pink. Why? Not sure, to be honest, but most likely because I associate the color with feminine style. In today’s post, I’m sharing a monochromatic look that’s a surprising color to wear during the fall season, but can be an excellent way to re-wear some summer pieces from your wardrobe. If you’re a fan of layering and hot pink, definitely continue reading to see where to get similar pieces to recreate this fun autumnal vibrant colored look.

I’ve styled this top several years ago (link here) but have linked many other similar tops such as this one since it’s no longer available. But I’d say it’s a velour long-sleeved crop top, so a jersey sweater or even a knitted one would also work for a look like this. The slip dress is also no longer available to which I’ve linked a few similar ones. Boots are from Public Desire and are only $60 where they definitely look like they’re worth more. I love that they’re western snakeskin ankle boots but in a fashionable bright pink. A definite eye-catcher even by itself with jeans and a white tee.

Other accessories with this outfit are my favorite pink bag from Thesis Crisis and hair accessories from Hvisk and Neophyte Jewels. Since there were purple accents in the boots, I picked one of the barrettes made of acetate in dark pink and then a slimmer pearled one with red and pink tones to mix up the shade range. I think the block of the heel and other tones work well with someone who has darker hair like myself. What do you guys think about monochromatic looks? I did a red one (link here) last March that many of you loved. Let me know in the comment section down below! Happy Monday!

Belted Scarf Outfit

Belted scarf outfit

Happy Monday & Happy Fall! One of my favorite seasons weather-related aside, it is one of my favorite seasons in fashion as well. Layers after layers, boots galore, and a personal obsession with outerwear, I’m all for it. One accessory for the season that I’ve been really into lately is scarves: All shapes and sizes. And with the colder weather approaching, I love a good scarf that can keep me warm! So in today’s post, I’m sharing one way to style your scarf to look extra chic! Easy peasy, on top. Come check out the full story and continue reading to find out where you can get this look for the fall season!

When it comes to any type of accessory there are two qualities I’m seeking. One, the level of craftsmanship; and two, and the environmental requirements that are necessary for this day and age. Amédée Paris’s Signature hand-roll finished square scarf completely embodies this. Screen printed by French artisans. these scarves are 100% ethically-made & sourced Merino wool from New Zealand. Dimensions: 135cm x 135cm and can be styled many different ways, but a recent favorite of mine is the one-shoulder belted scarf look. It looks strong with a structured blazer or wide-leg pant, but it is the cinch of the belt that seals the deal if you will.

This look has an emphasis on masculinity, but just like any outfit, I love putting a twist on things, and the juxtaposition of feminine vs. masculine is something I do quite often in terms of my style. To complement with the scarf as well as bring a feminine touch to this look, I went with red strappy sandals and a couple of hairpins to soften up the more boyish side to this outfit. I love burgundy/maroon mixed with navy blue for fall, so I opted a beautiful white crossbody bag from Unitude that had hints of blue suede on the handle that goes well with the belt. Would you wear this look to court? How about if you were some sort of “Boho Lawyer”? Thanks for stopping by, I’ve gathered links down below and at the end of the post for future reference. Wishing you a wonderful week! xx

Salmon Pink Blazer


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY STYLEWE BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

When I think of colors such as pink and white together, I normally think this to be a spring palette of some sort, but I wanted to style a look for transitional weather with the same color combination. And since one of my go-to essentials in my closet has always been a good steady blazer, I knew I wanted to style one within these range of hues. So in today’s post, I’m sharing a pink and white look that has all the right pieces for summer, in-between seasons like an Indian summer, and my favorite season of all: Fall.

How good is this salmon-colored blazer? It goes perfectly with my bag from Thesis Crisis. One of my favorite ways to style a blazer or power suit lately is pairing it with a simple sports bra, like this one that is unpadded and super comfortable for warmer weather. To help not have the black stick out, in not a good way, I wore these resin hoop earrings which also blend well with my hair color. All in all, color choice is always important to me when styling a look together.

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? With these sleek Palazzo pants, they work perfectly in transitional kind of weather. Works at the beach or in the city - I’ve always enjoyed pieces that are used for more than one purpose. To balance the contrast from the pink and white combination, I wore red-tone strappy sandals. I’ve been really into 90s style as of late, and these kind of shoes are just that. Plus who doesn’t love a low heel? Wishing you a wonderful end to summer and an enjoyable return to fall activities!

5 Ways to Style A Classic White Crossbody Bag

THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY DELAGE AND CECILIA NEW YORK BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.


Enjoying the last few weeks of summer before fall. One color I love to wear during the warmer months is white, especially accessories as they look crisp, clean and oh, so chic… it’s quite another story when the first set of leaves begin to fall. But you’ll be seeing a lot more of white this season! Which is why in today’s post, I’m sharing 5 ways to style a classic white crossbody bag. The twist? I’m styling both summer and fall outfits - even transitional weather appropriate because let’s face it, that’s also always a challenge, with only one purse and in one color. White. So continue reading to see full visual story along with where to shop each look!

WEARING: RED ORANGE BLAZER | RED ORANGE SHORTS | NUDE MULES | WHITE BAG | STATEMENT EARRINGS

First look screams Indian Summer. It’s hot one minute and cool the next, one needs a good transitional piece! And imagine the multiple ways of styling either the shorts or blazer separately. To keep the look with minimal style, I wore nude mules with a low heel that would give me just enough length and statement earrings to make the short suit more luxurious. Instead of a loud, noisy bag, I styled it with the white crossbody that definitely polishes this look overall.

WEARING: BLACK MEN’S JACKET | BLACK WAIST PANTS | BLACK + ALABASTER SANDALS | WHITE BAG | SILVER EARRINGS

This is probably my most favorite look out of the five. It’s bold, sexy and fiercely intense which is definitely one style I can embody :) A recent trend that will be booming during the transitional period between summer and fall is ‘sailoring’. A technique in tailoring, it’s when one uses the lace or straps from shoes to hem long pants. I’m wearing a gorgeous pair from Cecilia New York. Classic black and white, lucite straps, and wire wrap around to fit any ankle to give a flattering look. In this case, a fun twist on hemming. I also styled an oversized men’s blazer but tying the front two slits together to give a tiny cinch to the boxy fit. And tell me a black and white outfit that isn’t chic?!

WEARING: WHITE BLAZER | BLACK BRA | WIDE LEG JEANS | SNEAKERS | WHITE BAG

Another black and white look, but with a twist. The perfect white blazer, but invert layering. It’s a classic look with different variations of style. I’d typically pair these wide leg jeans with the blazer and some dainty shoes but in this look I went for a more rough, tomboy edge pairing it with sneakers, pulled hair and pearl details to keep a bit of feminine style in the mix as well. I wanted to show that this crossbody bag can also work for more hard, non-delicate looks. How did I do? ;)

WEARING: GREEN DRESS | WHITE CHELSEA BOOTS | WHITE BAG

I’ve styled this dress before during the wintertime (!!) you can check it out here but I wanted to wear this again during the warmer season to show you it can be worn all year round. That, and the fact that this white crossbody bag goes very well with bold print dresses such as this one. I love how the small white dots from the dress goes so well with the white accessories. I think this look is stylish but understated, can be worn on so many different occasions.

WEARING: NEWSPAPER PRINT TEE | BLACK SKIRT | BLACK BELT | BLACK HAT | BLACK BOOTS | WHITE BAG

Last but not least, a totally 90s-inspired look! I’d say this outfit is a mix of ‘Clueless’ and Prada references. This newspaper print tee I’ve worn during New York Fashion Week (see here) and it definitely reminds me of that Dior dress Carrie wore in Sex & the City. And I can’t seem to get enough of bucket hats and combat boots lately. They’re my ultimate favorite combo. I styled this look with a sleek ribbed skirt to keep it slightly sexy but not over the top. Definitely could wear this any day of the week and I wouldn’t be mad about it at all. Which look is your favorite look from today’s post?

Peplum Midi Dress


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY WHO WHAT WEAR BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

Happy Monday! Starting the week in one of my new favorite dresses that’ll definitely be worn through the fall season! It’s everything that is trending; in terms of pattern, color and cut - it’s the dress that keeps giving. It’s the perfect attire for an evening meeting or an event where the dress code is not casual and you don’t want to show up in jeans. This dress is effortlessly chic and will bring that A-game to your next important meeting/gathering. Continue reading to see how I styled this dress and where you can get it for under $35!!

A fresh and modern look that's the personification of elegance: the peplum midi dress from Who What Wear™. Perfectly proportioned sleeves are echoed in the extra-deep ruffled peplum hemline; an eye-catching angled geometric pattern adds the must-have hue of the year. I cinched my waist with an embossed belt to give a stronger silhouette. You can wear this dress with a blazer/jacket, and even layering in in the fall with a cool cape/vest or black long-sleeved top underneath.

To give me some height, I wore my favorite pair of black mary janes. They are made in Korea by a really chic shoe brand called Lower. The top handle bag goes well with the shoes, and the belt is a deep navy blue, which brings contrast to the overall black within the accessories. Lastly, I styled this look with big statement earrings. I did not list them, they’re from H&M but cannot find them online nor could I find similar looking ones. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed checking out this look and wishing you all a great start to your week! x
