I always love when an outfit looks like a jumpsuit, but really is a 2-piece set. I loved these colorblock wide legs pants, and when I discovered there was a wrap blouse to match, I couldn’t resist! 

I also wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for your sweet comments on my post last week, where I penned my love letter to fashion (here). I loved reading all of your comments, and if you can leave this blog with a little fashion inspiration, then my job here is done.

You all make this blog so much fun, and I appreciate every single one of you! 

Thanks for reading!

Happy Valentine’s Day to my ladiessss!

For those in love – Enjoy the ride. Loving someone is the bravest thing you can do, so celebrate this miracle everyday.

For those not in a romantic relationship – I wish you find someone who makes you think “where have you been all my life?”. Someone who will make you feel capable of reaching your fullest potential.

For those with broken hearts – Remember a heartbreak is a blessing from God. It’s just His way of letting you realize He saved you from the wrong one 😉

So to celebrate this day – YOU DO YOU.

Love yourself, love your life and appreciate all of the people who encourage and support you.

And…have some chocolate!!

XOXO

The majority of us love fashion, in one way or another. You wouldn’t be reading this blog otherwise, right?

It’s an important part of our lives and for me it has been the focus of all my love for as long as I can remember. And I’m not even being dramatic with that sentence.

I can still remember being 7 years old and my Grandma bringing my sisters and I to visit my newest baby sister in the hospital. There I was in a big skirt and the largest clip-on earrings I could fit on my tiny earlobes. Or being in middle school and laying out all of my clothes for the week, color coordinating every single piece with bright and daring accessories from Wet Seal and different color Keds.

You see, fashion reveals a part of our personalities before we even say our first”hello” and it develops and changes as we grow. It’s pieces of who we are and who we wish we were, as well as people we admire and want to emulate.

That’s just what clothes do. Fashion isn’t just material. It helps whip up a fantasy world for yourself. Then it dares you, and encourages you to make it into your life.

The moral of the story?

If you want to wear a feather top to lunch: WEAR IT.

A skirt that has a loud print: DO IT.

A faux fur coat that hits the floor? WHY THE HECK NOT?

Because in the words of Sarah Jessica Parker:

“I choose clothes because I respond to them. I think pulling it off or not pulling it off doesn’t exist for me. I’m looking for experiences, not some report card“.

Couldn’t have said it any better myself.

Thanks for reading xo♥

Coat: LuLu’s | Jeans: old (similar) | Glasses: Quay

Two tone, color blocked, half & half – whatever you want to call it – the trend is out there in a big way, and as a lover of color…I am here for it!

It’s a new, fun way to mix and match hues. And since we’re so close to Valentine’s Day, I thought this was the perfect coat for a fun date or girls night out!

Do you guys already have plans for Valentine’s Day? We usually go to a nice dinner that weekend in Beverly Hills. It’s always fun to get dolled up and have a true date night with each other.

I’d love to hear what your plans are!

Thanks for reading, friends!

While you might think that monochromatic outfits take less energy and thought, they can be sometimes tough to get right. A monochromatic look is a very simple and clean style and when you have the right pieces to put together, you can create a show-stopping look.

The best way to style these looks is to use different textures. Black can be boring, but when you mix feathers, with nylons and textured hearts? Home run!

What are your thoughts on monochromatic fashion? I really want to try styling more of these looks this year. Just have to think of what color is next…

Have a great week!
