Leopard Print Short Set
Leopard Print Short Set

It's a jungle out there...the runways have spoken!
I may not be an animal print enthusiast be it leopard, tiger, cow patches or cheetah for that matter, but I have to admit that this body suit / biker shorts set was a great choice to have me 'walking on the wild side'. 
The only thing missing was red lipstick for an additional punch!

With fashion's new neutral aka animal print, sometimes more is more which is why I chose a print pair of heels for a monochromatic 'queen of the jungle' (Ha!) look complete with a print topper. The crimson bag and belt added a nice pop of color to an already bold look.

Cargo Pants... A Modern Take on the Pocketed Trend
Cargo Pants... A Modern Take on the Pocketed Trend
Cargo Pants... A Modern Take on the Pocketed Trend

Cargo pants have temporarily replaced good old jeans, in my closet at least. 
 You? 
The volume, the intentionally placed oversized pockets (a gal’s best friend, Ha!) and the overall slouchy fit make for an untethered and effortless look that’s often a go to for me and for many gals that view sacrificing comfort as a non negotiable. 


I balanced out the volume with a fitted mock neck top and added chunky heel boots to amplify the pant’s street style appeal. Statement sneakers would’ve added a cool vibe and a cropped top would have worked just as well especially in the warmer months. Styling these pants monochromatically with a matching knitted sweater would be pleasing to the eyes as well.  

Even though I loved the fabric of the pants because it’s breathable cotton, a silky pair styled with sleek stiletto ankle boots would most definitely elevate the pants into date night territory.

I cinched my waist with a Gucci belt that picked up on the bag and voila! A very cool off duty style! In a very unusual color combo dare I add. 

Cargo/utility pants got their start way back in the military but had a strong fashion come in the late 1990s and 2000s. Comfort seekers and street style enthusiasts use these as a break from the sartorial athleisure trend. They are cozy, versatile and can go with pretty much any basics that already live in your closet. 
Are you a fan?

Sweater Dress and Pom Pom Beanie

Sweater Dress and Pom Pom Beanie

If you are like me, then sweater dresses are a go to during the Winter months. From their coziness to their comfort, the ease of wear and most importantly the one and doneness of them, seriously what’s not to love! Be it fuzzy, cashmere, cable knit, turtle neck, ankle / floor grazing or mini, one thing that makes sweater dresses a favorite of the style set crowd is that there are a plethora of ways to style them for a sure fire effortless look. You can dress them all the way up or you can casual them out depending on where you’re headed. 

Trust me I know how cliché that sounds but seriously, you can!


I styled this playful fuzzy white sweater dress by itself with a box bag and thigh high not so luxe boots cos I knew I'd be stepping on sinking, wet, grassy dirt (Ha!). You probably already know that combat boots are my thing (and gosh I couldn't get enough of them even if I tried really hard) and those would have worked perfectly well with this beauty for a whole new level of ... you guessed it, cool!

It can also be styled over pants for an elevated off duty look or with sneakers for a laidback weekend look. I wouldn’t recommend this particular sweater dress for the office for obvious reasons… it’s thigh grazing length!

Just like in Cali… when the weather is a little sunny and a little crisp, yet warm enough to skip a coat, then it’s time to show those sweater dresses you’ve been adding to your arsenal some ‘holiday’ love.

How are you working sweater dresses into your rotation this Winter?

Merry Christmas to you all!

No Limits Jumpsuit

How have jumpsuits taken over my closet? 
A joyful melding of comfort, functionality and style would very easily be the culprits. 
Are you a fan?

Hi everyone, it's been a hot minute. I miss you all, I miss writing and I'm hoping to get back to it in the very near future.

How about this 'No Limits' onesie that's super comfortable, stretchy and hugs every curve. I styled it with a Gucci belt bag worn two ways and a pair of black sky high combat boots.

Have a fantastic Veterans day weekend!

The Resurgence of the Poncho
The Resurgence of the Poncho
I can't even believe it's May and the first half of this year is almost over! 
Where has time gone?

It's been a minute since I wore a poncho so I kind of forgot how cozy and comfy it is to wear a "blanket" out on a cool Spring morning. Ponchos have been having a moment and are known to make even the preppiest outfits look trendy. The resurgence of the poncho, has been very well received by the street style set. 

I love the fact that they are a perfect camouflage for areas we don't want to highlight. Oh and they can be worn during any season depending on the fabric. 
Score! 

I fell in love with this piece the second I saw it and knew right away I had to have it. It was sold out all over the US so you can imagine my excitement when I eventually found one and scooped it up real quick.

Being an ideal transitional piece, I wore this poncho to service the other day as an alternative to a jacket and it totally updated my classic white shirt on leggings look. I wore a belt over to accentuate my waist.
 I kept my boots unzipped for an effortless vibe.
