Statement Sleeves

Zara top, SHOP SIMILAR Katty Xiomera pants Phillip V sunglasses Christian Louboutin sandals As we head into the long weekend, there’s no better time to update your warm-weather wardrobe with trend-forward pieces. Despite the broad range of prints, patterns, palettes, textures, and silhouettes that are available, designers and consumers alike can all agree on one major trend: the statement sleeve. This universal fascination with the statement top trickled down from the cold-shoulder and bohemian trends seen this year, and as much as I defy the hottest trends, these tops are a perfect addition to your wardrobe and these pants are super flattering. I am currently weeding through my closet for pieces to wear this spring and summer. As seasons pass, to think that your style won’t change... Read More

Denim Addicted

There is a truth about being addicted to denim. Much like diamonds, denim is forever. Denim is a beloved textile. It’s been around forever, super comfortable, easy to wash, and looks good on everyone. Part of its enduring legacy is due to designers reimagining it every season. A basic pair of jeans will never get old but seeing it in the form of chic culottes, patchwork, or a denim mini skirt makes me fall in love with it over and over again. Whenever I get dressed and am at a loss of what to wear, I pull out my favorite top and pair it with denim. We all own a pair of jeans, so this is an easy how-to in the style department. Trends change, but jeans are... Read More

Timeless Style

Timelessness is a priority in French style. The navy and white striped pullover is exemplary of how an item of clothing, when made well, can last forever. Origins of this timeless style, however, are not in the fashion capital of the world. Therefore, it was not the Parisians, but rather the Bretons who wore the nautical stripe first in Bretagne. The shirt we now consider a staple, authentically called by many designers the “Breton” stripe, was originally worn by those who frequented the seas along Brittany. The blue and white striped cotton pullovers were ideal to combat the weather at sea because of their tightly stitched cotton. It was then adopted by Audrey Hepburn and then Coco Chanel. To follow their lead, the Breton stripe was catapulted to high fashion.... Read More

Track Pants Trend

I will be live on instagram, sharing my favorite dresses form the night so be sure to stay tuned! I don’t get to dress up very often as my life as a freelancer and a mom keeps me writing in my home office, and prepping meals in the kitchen for the family.

When the Shoe Fits

Shoes: Donald Pliner Bag: JW Anderson When the clouds finally stop sneezing and spitting, fashion actually comes to life. I am so ready to whip out my spring clothes and shoes, but not when I am sopping wet. As evidenced last week, and executed quite nicely this weekend, our so-called “spring” turned into a bleak February-like status. I wanted to break out those florals and open-toe sandals, but would not freeze on the the account of fashion. I don’t know what “fashion” with a capital F is anymore. Is it the industry itself that has changed? Or is it me? The definition is blurry. For me, creative expression takes the form of writing, styling, and clothing, an object that someone can wear. I had the... Read More

You can also play with an athleisure vibe. See sneakers, socks, et al. I tested out the trend for Spring by wearing a neon sweatshirt paired with denim. You can wear these powerful shades without looking like a neon carnival, trust me. Denim works with neon because it is... Read More
