I am really trying to make my closet more basic lately. It just makes the pieces in my closet more timeless and it’s easier to style with as well. I decided to syle this olive green oversized turtleneck that is a vintage find ( got to love those). I added my simple and favorite Levis mom jeans to keep the look casual and to stay comfortable. To bring the outfit all together, I added this camel colored suede jacket from H&M. I love how this jacket gives a clean finish to the whole look.
For shoes, I added these black closed-toe shoes that I bought from Call it Spring. Simple yet again clean to bring the casual look together. Then last but not least I added this cute silver detailed black hat from Forever 21.
There you have it chicas. A simple look with a cute oversized olive vintage knit sweater. You can really find some gems if you have the time and go to the right locations for vintage shopping. I hope you all enjoyed this Fridays look and I will see you next week Tuesday for another great post!
The collarbone is the new cleavage for the season. It’s all about showing the collarbone. It really accentuates the neck and gives this chic sexy touch to a formal or even casual outfit.
I decided to take this regular button down shirt and button only 4 buttons up starting from the bottom of the shift. Then I role the top on the shoulders and voila, you have an off the shoulder top in two seconds. A lot of stores do offer this look already designed for you, but why not get that trend from your closet with a piece that you already have for free. I then added this knitted skirt that I got from my moms closet that she wore ages ago. I love the grey and black pattern. It gives a vintage touch to the whole look while still making it trendy with the basic white off the shoulder top. You can layer a trench coat to keep you warm or if you live in a colder climate add a wool trench coat. I added this suede brown trench coat from H&M which really brings an earthy touch of color to the whole look
For finishing touches, I added my go-to simple black closed toe suede shoes from Call it Spring. Again if it is a little colder where you live, you can add black leather ankle booties with a heel. LAstely, I added this black hat from Forever 21. The silver detailing give a trendy metallic touch to the overall look.
As if the time goes by this fast and I have been on this earth for 24 years. Time flies when you are figuring out life. I decided to wear this figure fitting navy blue dress to celebrate me. I started my healthy lifestyle journey six years ago and lost over 60 pounds. My self esteem was not the best and I was very shy. As the years went by through the ups and downs I hav been learning to love myself and my body while understanding what makes me confident, happy and comfortable with my self. This dress celebrates my journey and what more to come in the near future.
This dress is designed by ABS and it is from Rent Frock and Repeat. The sheer lace gives this dress so many layers and detailing. I love the detailed floral lace. With the cinched waist, I was able to feel comfortably supported in this dress while defining my hips which I love. This dress is great for a cocktail, Christmas party or even as a brides maid dress. The navy blue color allows this dress to play in various occasions.
I have had this cardigan for quite some time now though I always seem to come back to this number once the fall comes back around. I bought this cardigan from Forever 21. I love the geometric patterns and the pop of orange that really stands out against the grey.
With such a crazy pattern you want to make the rest of the outfit simple. I added my fur vest to add texture to the outfit. Not only is it fashionable but really warm as well. I then added these mom jeans that I thrift way back as Vien Avec Moi made by Levis. They are so comfortable the cut hem gives it an edgy trendy twist to simple light wash jeans.
For shoes, I played it safe and added my closed toe Call it Spring shoes. I use these pairs of shoes for everything! Work, a special event or a girls night. It really gives enough height to be used for special occasions yet casual enough to wear during the day.
So I decided to take advantage or the fall weather, beautiful leaves and go to a pumpkin patch. Yes a pumpkin patch. What says fall more then that. I wanted o wear an outfit that was comfy and what says comfy more then this wool sweater I bought ages ago from Zara. Even though I bought it so long ago, it is one of my favorite sweaters in my closet. Year after year I go back to it and year after year it stay trendy and an amazing laying piece as well.
I then added these simple dark wash skinny jeans from Zara. These are another on of my favourite beacuse they are one of the most comfortable jeans I own and they make my but look good if I do not say so myself.
For the shoes, I wanted to complement the oatmeal color sweater, so I added these high knee suede boots from Call if Spring. You all know I love this store. They always have amazing style for boots and you truly can not go wrong.
Now to add some color, I added my Zara orange plaid oversize scarf. I honestly do not like orange 99.99% of the time but for some reason I love this scarf. Since Orange is not usually a popular color when it comes down to plaid over-sized scarf I thought why not. It will be different.
Lastly for the bag , I added a leather vintage bag with a gold detailed buckle on the strap. Kept it simple.
Sometimes it’s good just to go back to the basics. An LBD never goes wrong for any occasion. You can wear an LBD for work, a wedding, dinner with the family, out with the girls. Really it just comes down to the style of the dress and the accessories you decide to pair it with
I got this slip lace detailed dress from Marshalls. I love how simple the dress is but the lace detailing gives it a classy, delicate and sexy touch to the overall dress. I then decided to add my black closed toe shoes that I bought from Call it Spring. There is something about an all black look that really keeps the look sleek and classic so when you are looking at your photos ten years from now you can still say “I can wear that dress again”.
Now the accessories are where the dress really comes to life. The dress is like the crust, sauce, and cheese of the pizza and the accessories are the toppings. For this look, I added the Tom Ford cheetah sunglasses from Point of View Boutique. The pop of color and pattern really brings the whole look together. These glasses are definitely crowd stopper. If you really want to go all out or might be going out at night time when it cooler, add a duster jacket or motor jacket to keep the look classy yet add some color to this all black ensemble. I added my yellow suede motor jacket from Mink (why not? I feel so bad ass with this jacket). There’s something about a motor jacket that makes me feel like I should be on a motorcycle in style.
Over the shoulder dresses and tops are everywhere making it a given that I and maybe every chicas will be wearing them all spring and summer long.
I was sent this dress by Pink Martini. Pink Martini is a Canadian clothing brand from Toronto that sells contemporary style clothing. I was told to choose an item from their website to try it out. I decided to choose this amazing waterfall off the shoulder dress.The dress hugs to your body at the bottom and has a flirty flowy feel with the top ruffles and the off the shoulder.
I then decided to pair the dress with these white and gold sandals that I bought from Aldos. I have had these sandals for a year now and they go with everything which I love. For the glasses, I teamed up with a local eyewear company called Point of View Opticians where they had so many great designers such as Jimmy Choo, Tom Ford and much more. I choose these classic Tom Ford Ombre effect Aviators. Tom Ford is probably one of my favorite designers for eyewear. He executes the shape of the eyewear so well allowing them to fit all different face types. These glasses literally slid on like a glove.
The best part about spring is being able to layer on jackets and duster coats with the weather being not to warm and not too cold. I have had this vintage jacket in my closet for a couple years now waiting to style it. It is a vintage piece brought to you by my mom. One of the best parts about adding vintage to your wardrobe, it forces you to be more creative and think outside the box of mainstream fashion.
I decided to pair this bold green floral jacket with a textured cream blouse from Aritzia. The color is neutral enough to allow the coat to still be the show of the outfit, however, adds more detail and eye appealing depth to the overall outfit. I then added a white denim skirt that I bought ages ago from dynamite. I am pretty sure I saw the exact on in H &M as well. For shoes, does anyone know what I paired them with? My nude Just Fab heels? Suprised? probably not but this just goes to show that you want to find a piece you can wear with literally everything in your closet. Versatility is key my loves. Lastly, I added my Kate Spade purse that compliments not only the shoes but the shade of this beautiful blouse as well. There you have it a cute outfit that is simple yet chic and creative.

With Tulip Festival starting at the perfect time, Mothers Day weekend, what better way to celebrate than with a floral print to match their floral time of year. I decided to bring that fun crochet white top from Marshalls and pair it with these fun floral pants from River Island that I got a few years ago. Since the pants are the star of the show, you really want to play it down by adding a neutral color top and simple accessories. I added my usual Alex and Anni bracket and my Kate Spade bag that really never goes wrong (like honestly). Now you are ready to look at beautiful flowers, take cute pictures with your friends and find a cute place to eat after a day of flower hunting. Hope you enjoy this Mothers Day Weekend!!!

This top ismy staple for the spring and summer season. I decided to bring this great sheer embroidery top out of the closet but this time casual. I paired these ripped distress straight jeans from Guess with this top. To keep the top tasteful and feasible for the day time, I added this navy blue crop top from Dynamite. The blue color gives a great contrast against the black sheer top. I then added, yes you guessed it, my nude pumps from Just Fab because can you go wrong with nude heels? Now you are ready to walk the runway of life looking fierce and unstoppable.
