I am so excited to be writing an outfit post and it’s well overdue! Recently in December I was craving to find a blush pink duster! So I know you may be wondering why I had the immediate urge to find this item…

Dusters are perfect and so in right now regardless of the climate you live in. Most silhouettes are available is light-weight fabrications. A duster is super sleek and elevates your style.

This shade of pink is EVERYTHING and is my power color (when I wear it, it’s an immediate confidence booster). This shade of pink is like a pseudo-neutral and can work with a multitude of skin tones and wardrobe needs. If you’re like me and love white, black, and gray you can pop this color into your closet  and easily fall in love.

The one I’m wearing is from boohoo.com and is under $40! My exact style has sold out but there are soooo many options on boohoo.com here. I did experience a delay in receiving my items in the states since this retailer is based in the UK. Nevertheless, the items I purchased were beautiful in person for such a good price.

These OTK (over the knee) boots I snagged last year from Nordstrom and they are designer dupes! This style isn’t available but here is pair that is similar and $100.Other pieces I styled in my look are from my closet; they are a combinations of older pieces and new 🙂

Choker Rage!

I’m completely obsessed with this choker trend! I know this trend has made a comeback a hot minute ago and I am a little late to the party, but my collection of chokers is something serious! In general, chokers are game-changers that instantly takes an outfit from basic to interestingly sexy and there are so many different types. What more can you ask for? My favorite way to wear them are with clean button up blouses, off the shoulder tops, easy shift dresses, and a classic v-neck.

On my YouTube channel I have a full haul of my personal favorites that you can shop now!!! Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you will be in the know FIRST about my weekly content!

How to Wear a Rebecca Minkoff 5-Zip

I love anything that can be worn multiple ways, don’t you?!? It feels like I’m getting my money’s worth! The infamous Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip cross body is one of those items that will make you feel exactly like that. Check out my video below to learn the 3 ways you can wear this bag and look great doing it and shop the bag here 🙂

Minimalist Feel

I always loved wearing accessories. A piece of jewelry can have so much meaning to it and change your look and is a great conversation starter, thank me later 😉  Recently I haven’t been investing in huge statement pieces and opting for more minimalist yet eloquent statement pieces.Two of my favorite jewelry brands, House of Harlow 1960 and Alex and Ani, make the eloquent minimalist happen for me and helps me share my story daily!

The latest two to my growing collection have provided me with a little inspiration to stay true to my self (bracelet 1 and 2). I also wore my long House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst pendant necklace (here) alone with the matching earrings (similar here).DSCN0040

For my last accessory to complete my look I went treasure hunting in my closet and pulled out a hat I literally haven’t worn in 3 years. I am obsessed with how chic big floppy hats are! I love them more when they have a little accent to give the hat a hint of attitude. I found this similar one from Nordstrom for you all here. How do you share your story with your accessories?DSCN0037

Sarah Jessica Parker Shoes @ Nordstrom

20140109-233300.jpg

Mark your calendars because SJP Shoes are hitting Nordstrom EXCLUSIVELY February 28th!!!

I went to Glamour to take a sneak peek at 5 shoes from the line and I can say I’m half in love with them. Here’s the skinny of what I like and don’t like…

I like that the designs are wearable and authentic to Sarah, so it’s easy to see her hand was heavy in the process of creating the shoes. That’s something I really love to see since with so many celeb lines it’s sometimes hard to tell if they even hard a part in the design process.

I don’t like the price point! I understand the reason why designer shoes are priced the way they are… But at the $195-$500 price point it’s not completely accessible to a segment of the market that she could really use to build the brand. That’s just my opinion.

It’s obvious that her character Carrie Bradshaw was a muse to Sarah designing the line! There’s even a beautiful t-strap pump names after the infamous Sex in the City character! It’s probably my favorite that I’ve seen since this pump is classic and the perfect nude for spring. Only one question remains… Will you buy?

The Glam Jumpsuit

photo (38)

A good jumpsuit is an essential in your closet… When you want chic and easy glam put on a fabulous jumpsuit! I snagged this from Nordstrom Savvy as soon as I saw it. This particular jumpsuit flatters many different body types and is  easy to pull off since it’s a complete look done for you. Also the print is very easy to wear for you girls who are print-cautious. All you need are accenting accessories and a killer pair of heels BAAAAM! You’re ready to turn heads where ever you go!!!

Get the look: RBL Print Surplice Jumpsuit, Thrifted Cuff (try this Forever 21 Gold Cuff ), Forever 21 Chandelier Earrings, Sole Society Heels (old, but try these Jessica Simpson Heels)

Black Obsession

photo (36)I am OBSESSED with wearing ALL BLACK ERRRTHANG!!! I’ve been Yeezus inspired when it comes to going into my closet every day and finding the perfect outfit. I wore this little number to work and it became a favorite with customers and co-workers alike! Even the guys at work really fell in love with this look! Now this is a look anyone could easily pull off for the Fall!
