When I think of bold fashion, I automatically think of striking colors, eye-catching prints and patterns, or a mix of all three for a final look that stands out. It’s about going out of your norm, trying something different and new. Similar to fashion, boldness in life requires us to step out of our comfort zone, to not be afraid to be different and go against the flow, even if the choice we make is not necessarily the most popular one. It’s about following your heart even if the path you choose may not lead to success as the world defines it. Continue reading →
As I was looking through my summer fashion posts, I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve gotten dressed up to go anywhere. I was getting too comfortable in my summer t-shirt and shorts combos. So I decided to dress it up a bit for this post. Why not, right? For one, it’s always a good excuse to make a date night. If you’re all dressed up, you might as well go somewhere. Secondly, I kind of miss looking polished every day and having somewhat intelligent adult conversation. Now that all my girls are in school full time, could I possibly consider going back to work? Not impossible. And last but not least, this past weekend marked this little blog’s 2-year anniversary. So I guess it’s good reason to dress up and celebrate! Continue reading →

As soon as I set my eyes on this Cora bag, I fell in love with the serenely understated shade of lavender. I also immediately thought of the perfect summer dress to wear with it. Continue reading →
Unlike past Easters, I was actually able to wear the outfit that I had planned to wear. I purchased this lilac circle skirt a while back at Nordstrom because I loved the way it fit. I was also intrigued by the color because I had never purchased a skirt in lilac, aka as violet, lavender, mauve, or light purple. Unfortunately, it just didn’t seem to pair well with any of the tops that I had in mind. I tried neutrals like black and white and I also tried to stay within the same hue but it just didn’t seem to work, so I just tucked it away in my closet for another day. Then I spotted the color lilac featured in different magazines and blogs and it was being paired with all sorts of different colors. Continue reading →

I’m loving the wide range of mixed media styles that I’m finding everywhere lately. I bought this dress about a year ago hoping that the faux leather and tweed combination would not be a thing of the past by my … Continue reading →
