Spring Ready

Even though it's only February, everyone is already wishing for spring. Something about the weather warming up and shorter clothing hems is so liberating. Being stuck in the house for most of winter is cozy at first but quickly becomes boring. Spring is not here yet, but my outfit this week is definitely themed around it. I chose this feminine light blue striped shirt with light wash jeans from Target. While light jeans are always stylish, I loved the side accent of darker denim. Staying with spring colors I added cognac colored boots and a crossbody bag. 

Simple & Sweet Valentine's Day Looks

Look 1: My first Valentine's Day look is centered on this reddish pink top from the brand Mossimo. Besides the color, the frill details of this top make it girly yet simple. I would wear this to a lunch day or a day date. With the top I wore denim jeans to keep the casual look. 

Look 2: My second look is more dressy than casual. Continuing with the red theme I chose this floral dress from the brand Xhiliration. I love the feminine feel of this dress and would wear this out to dinner with tights and heels. My favorite aspect of the dress is the layers that add volume on the bottom. 

Look 3: My third and final look is focused on the top, although I do love these light wash jeans from Universal Thread. Staying with the floral theme, I chose this top because of the choker details and the top. The choker aspect is more daytime appropriate with the darker buttons.

Styling Outfits With Pearls

Winter fashion this 2018 is including various styles and a focus on accessories. One of these styles is the adornment of pearls on ones outfit. However, there is line between a sleek look and an overwhelming fashion choice. I think scarcely adorned pearls can make an outfit appear classic and clean. Too many of this accessory can make an outfit appear a bit childish. Here's my tips for incorporating pearls in your outfit.  Styling Tips: 1. Have One Adorned Piece For a sophisticated look with pearls, have it adorned on one piece. For my outfit, I chose to have a t-shirt with pearls. 
2. Surround With Simple Pieces Too many pearls could appear childish. Balance the look with simple pieces like black pants and a jean jacket.
3. Stick to Monochromatic Colors This style looks best with black or white shirts. Having pearls on a pink top appears less sophisticated. 

Must Have Sweater

My must have sweater this winter has to be the turtleneck sweater. Styled correctly, this sweater can be so feminine and flattering. I love soft fabrics which is why I chose this H&M sweater for my pick today. For this winter look, I added loose waves to my hair, although nothing overdone. Then I put on dark denim to accentuate the sweater and create a contrast. 

How I Style Rompers in Winter

On this Sunday afternoon, I decided to mix summer prints with winter style. A romper isn't exactly a winter outfit so I had to be creative. A simple solution is to add black accents. The addition of black tights and a black blazer helped to balance out the romper. Finally, with tall boots this outfit is ready for wear. Although I would suggest wearing a coat for additional warmth. 

Winter Makeup & Whiter Teeth

I have New Year's resolutions just like everyone else, although, not all resolutions can be done in a day. However, when it comes to beauty, changes can occur in a day. I wanted to start the year off confidently with a brighter smile and a different makeup look. In the cold winter weather, I need makeup that will contrast against my face. This lead me to choose purple shades which enhance my green eyes and smile. Besides a darker lip, I used a teeth whitening kit sent to me by Carbon Coco. With a new look and better smile, 2018 is off to a great start!

Holiday Party Look

Despite not having a White Christmas, the holiday was very much alive. The wind was imminent and the air was crisp this late December in New York. Even though I did not wear this particular outfit for Christmas, I wanted to share it as I have worn it since. The focal point of this holiday look was this faux suede skirt. I have noticed this type of skirt having gained popularity in the last few months. Every blogger and every woman appears to have some sort of one. 
To add to that winter feeling, I went with a white cable knit sweater. The longer sleeves on the sweater kept my hands quite warm even with the cold weather. Even though it is hard to see, I am also wearing nude tights for some necessary warmth. This holiday look is not Christmas-y per se, as it lacks something red. To compensate for that, I put on a matte red lipstick. I usually don't wear red lipstick, but for the holidays, I make an exception.
