Who’s excited about the current surge of sporty chic styles in the fashion world? I, for one, am beyond ecstatic. The sporty chic trend got its debut in the realm of men’s fashion about 3 years ago when we started to see tailored suits paired with statement sneakers popping up among celebrities and the fashion savvy crowd. I thought it was a cool trend and instantly took a liking to it but somehow, women’s fashion didn’t catch up to it right away. Continue reading
Who doesn’t like a good chambray? It seems like anywhere you look, chambray is the common denominator in a variety of outfits. Its versatility makes it a must-have closet staple for every fashionista. It goes with pretty much anything and can be worn in all seasons. It’s a given that chambray is one of the go-to items during the fall and winter seasons since it’s great for layering. But I find myself reaching for it even in the warmer weather seasons especially since it comes in different styles and weights.
In case you were wondering, chambray is a lightweight plain-weave cloth initially made of linen but later applied to cotton and even silk. It typically comes in blue but can come in any color. What’s the difference between chambray and denim, you ask? Continue reading
Winter is not over yet but I am so ready to do my favorite winter trends roundup. I have to say, winter is not an easy season for bloggers, especially those of us who live in colder climates. Taking photos outdoors in freezing weather is not my idea of fun and neither my husband’s, my reluctant photographer. So major props to all you ladies who braved thru the frigid temperatures to inspire the rest of us with your amazing outfits.
For this season, I thought I’d do a roundup of my favorite winter essentials. We can’t live without layering, coats, boots, cardigans and scarves in the winter. It was so much fun to see how you ladies styled these basic winter staples and took them to another level. Again, it was super hard to narrow all my favorites down to the few below.
Layering at Its Best
Fall is coming to an end and winter is fast approaching, which means it’s time for my fall trends roundup! This is becoming one of my favorite posts to work on because I get to showcase my favorite trends of the season and my favorite bloggers sporting those trends. I have to say though, it’s not an easy task, especially because there are so many bloggers and outfits that I’d like to feature. It’s hard to narrow them down to just a handful. Well, I guess there is always next time.
The Blanket Scarf
How can I not talk about the blanket scarf? It’s like not talking about the elephant in the room. Everyone and their cousin owns a plaid blanket scarf, especially the one I’m wearing above. It’s the Zara scarf turned Target, Forever 21, ASOS, etc, etc, etc…scarf. But how can you blame us? It’s just one of those must-have items. I was glad to see blanket scarves in different colors and patterns as well. I love Bethany’s dark plaid scarf against her bright cobalt blue sweater. Tatiana’s houndstooth scarf is so classy and I fell head over heels for Mahshid’s grid print scarf. Continue reading
As summer weather is slowly making its exit (sob!), it felt appropriate to do a recap of sorts. But instead of doing a recap of just my outfits, I wanted to focus on the colors and color pairings that I enjoyed wearing this … Continue reading
