Blogger Style Session

Outfit Details 

Blazer: Target / Shirt: Target (similar) / Jeans: Target 
Shoes: Enzo Angiolini / Bag: olivia + joy (also love) / Sunglasses: Tommy Hilfiger 

It’s no surprise that we all get style inspiration from other people.  I absolutely love street style and seeing the creative ways that others put their looks together.  It challenges me to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things.  For today’s post, Target teamed me up with Elizabeth, from A Keene Sense Of Style, for a fun little blogger styling session.  Elizabeth has great style and I’ve always loved the way that she pieces everything together, so it was awesome working with her on this! 

My style is very simple & chic with an edgy twist and Elizabeth’s is very polished and feminine.  She kept both of our styles in mind when putting together this outfit for me.   She picked out this plaid blazer and paired it with a navy button down, which I absolutely love.  Plaid is a big print trend for the fall season and definitely one of my favorites.   I left the top buttons undone to give it a relaxed vibe.  Since this combo can be seen as “preppy,” she wanted to juxtapose that by pairing it with slightly distressed jeans.   We then added in pointy toe pumps to elongate my legs and the perfect tan crossbody bag to complete the look.   I’m really happy with the way this all turned out and although our styles are different, there are also some similarities as well.

Have you ever let someone else style you?  You should definitely try it out!

Light Layers

Outfit Details 

Sweater: Target / Shirt: Target / Jeans: Dittos 
Shoes: Enzo Angioloni via Nordstrom Rack / Clutch: ClareVvia Poshmark 

This post is going to be short and sweet.  It was super windy when I wore this outfit on Sunday and it was difficult doing a full shoot, but luckily I was able to get a few good pics to share this outfit. :) I've been trying to create more layered looks lately and as you all have probably noticed, I can't seem to get enough of this button down!  I definitely need more styles to get me through the rest of the fall season.  I paired it with this burgundy cropped sweater and dark denim for a casual and chic fall look.  I went with a darker pair of tan pumps to add contrast and then popped out the outfit with my leopard print clutch.  This was one of those looks that I envisioned as soon as I bought the sweater and I'm happy with how it turned out!

Have a great day <3

Fall Uniform

Outfit Details 

Cardigan: Charlotte Russe (old, similar) / Jeans: Dynamite (similar) / Shirt: NY & CO 
 Booties: Charlotte Russe (love these) / Bag: Galian (similar style) / Scarf: Charlotte Russe (love this)

Happy Monday loves!

I just want this to be my new fall uniform.  I'm all about long cardigans right now and can't seem to get enough.  I wore this months back in LA with a pair of shorts, so this time I paired it with high-waisted dark denim.  I love the versatility of this piece and definitely recommend getting a long cardi for this season.  So comfy.  I added a printed scarf that worked really well with the burgundy and white combo.  By the way, I have a burgundy obsession.  It's probably my favorite color trend to wear this time of year.  What's yours?

Now let's talk about these booties for a minute.  How cool are they?  I don't think I've ever had peep toe booties before.  I actually got these a couple of months ago and had no idea what I wanted to wear them with.  Once I put this look together, the booties became the finishing touch!  I wanted to wear them now before the temps drop too much and my toes get frozen.  I keep hearing how this winter is going to be even worse than the last and I seriously don't think I will be able to handle it.  I would love to skip the winter season at least one in my life.  Ok, enough of my rant.  ;)

Hope you all have a great start to the new week. <3

Leopard Love

Outfit Details 

Jacket: Dynamite (similar style) / Top: Forever21 / Skirt: Zara (similar)
Shoes: BarIII / Clutch: Tommy Hilfiger (similar red) / Necklace: Charlotte Russe (love this)

Happy Friday beauties! 

I wore this outfit on Sunday and it was such a gorgeous day out.  I had to take advantage and pull out the skirt & a crop top.  I've definitely lost count of how many times I have worn this skirt. #sorrynotsorry It's the perfect black skater skirt and most definitely became a staple piece in my wardrobe.  I layered on this faux leather blazer jacket that I got last year.  I've already worn it multiple times and will continue to do so until it falls apart.  :)  I wasn't lying when I said that I've been focused on reworking my older pieces.  Definitely suggest doing this! 

I pretty much styled this outfit around these fab shoes! Finally, a pair of leopard heels that I can wear repeatedly.  I've been on such a leopard kick lately.  You can style this print with pretty much any color you want, but this time I kept the color palette neutral and then popped it out with some red.  

On another note, don't forget to enter the How Do You HUE contest to win a trip to NYC + a $1000 shopping spree! Enter HERE until Nov. 15th <3

Pop Of Pink

Outfit Details 

Jacket: Zara (love this blue one) / Top: Forever21 / Pants: Charlotte Russe (love these)
 Shoes: Prima Donna / Clutch: Rebecca Minkoff / Necklace: Prima Donna 

I feel like I was channelling my inner Sandy from the movie Grease with this look.  "You better shape up! Cause I need a man.." Sorry couldn't resist.

  It's hard to see it, but these are high-waist black skinny pants with a black top tucked in.  It could almost pass as a jumpsuit in these photos.  This was a spur of the moment outfit, which has been happening a lot lately.  I was in an all black mood, but thought it would be even better to add a pop of pink with this jacket, and of course my lips.  You might remember me wearing this during fashion week.  I scored it on clearance at Zara and it was such a steal!  It's definitely my new favorite jacket and I plan to wear it more over the course of this season.  The zippers really made it.  Zara sales are the best!  The finishing touch to the look was this statement necklace, which really made the outfit pop out much more.  Once again, I focused on reworking some of my older pieces to create something new. 

Happy a lovely day.
