Welcome to the Party in Retrofête

Well hello again! I know it’s been a while…again. I did not think my next post would be at the near end of this crazy year. I’ve struggled juggling all the things going on with work being crazy busy and everything else going on in life. I know 2020 wasn’t the ideal year but the highlight for me was when I adopted my dog Max back in July 😊. So a lot of time after work has been Max time ❤️. I will do a post on him soon and share his story. He has completely stolen my heart and I can’t wait to share him with you all.

So since we’re at the end of 2020, it was only appropriate to do a New Years Eve post.

Welcome to the Wild Side: Animal Print

Hi guys! It’s been a minute hasn’t it…my bad! I think we can all say a lot has happened in 2020. We almost had World War III, innocent lives perished on a commercial flight out of Iran, we lost Kobe Bryant and his sweet daughter, and now we’ve all been locked up because of the Novel Coronavirus😖.

If you know a little bit about my background, I work at a hospital so things got pretty busy. So needless to say, I haven’t been “bored” during this stay at home phase and I’m grateful for that. Hopefully you and your families are safe.

Floral Birthday Suit

February, more like FebEATuary, for me is the Holiday’s part II (minus the turkey). Not only is Valentine’s in February but so is my birthday. So it’s lots of eating out, sweets, and celebrating🍾. My friends will tell you sweets are my weakness (along with shopping, obvi)…apparently eating a dozen macarons in one sitting is not normal. True story.

Florals: Beyond Spring & Summer

Continuing with the theme of fashion that works no matter the season, I love using my floral prints to put together a great fall look. Typically associated with spring and summer, you can do so much with floral in the fall. Those pretty flowers can be effortlessly transitioned into your fall wardrobe…. and an added plus, your bank account will thank you for it. Nothing like investing in pieces that you can use more than one season. Keep reading to see how to make use of some of your favorite floral pieces past spring and summer.

Breaking Rules: White after Labor Day

There are so many rules in life. Rules telling you how to live, how to act, how to be. Thankfully in the world of fashion, breaking rules is part of the fun. Your wardrobe is your canvas and getting to express however you feel makes your look individually yours. So many style Icons were famous for living to the beat of their own drum, living life as they saw fit and creating a style unique to their own personality.

Fall Streetwear

My first official fall look of 2019! I talked a little bit about the up and coming designer Kimberly Taylor in my “Little Slip Dress” post. This cropped sweatshirt is another one of her pieces that makes for a great transitional top that can be taken from a casual look to a dressy one. It can be worn as a set with the matching Zuri Legging to keep things comfy but stylish. The fabric of this drawstring sweatshirt (and the leggings which I also own) is soft and thick which are nice and comfortable.
