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.

Sunnies: Louis Vuitton

Ok back to some fashion before spring flies on by. If you’re thinking this is an old outfit that I’m just getting around to post, you’ve hit the nail on the head! So let’s just get to the review!

Top: Zimmermann similar here
Pants: Zara

Headed out to dinner with the fam, I really wanted to wear this Zimmermann leopard print turtle neck. Animal print never goes out of style and whenever it makes a comeback, it’s always explosive. It’s easy to style and often gives that wow factor in any season. Embrace your wild side 🐆 because animal print will continue trending for some time.

I wanted to keep things chic without trying too hard, so I opted for these faux suede taupe pants from Zara for a classic base. I love the side zip ankle detailing. A good pair of high rise skinny pants are always effortless so it was perfect for a family dinner night out.

Slipped on these classic Chanel mules and my taupe Celine box bag to be by my side. They say it’s all in the details, and no one knows it better than Chanel by adding a touch of pearl in the heel, a small detail that makes a big difference. I love a good structured bag and most are typically a top handle but the classic Celine box bag is practical yet polished over the shoulder.

Overall, the whole look is low-key monochromatic dressing with an earth tone color foundation. Taupe is one of my favorite colors to incorporate…it’s neutral and balances any look.

Next time you need some outfit inspo, step into the wild side. Have fun and get bold with animal print!

Wash your hands and stay safe out there!

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.

Aloha: Kauai Edition

Aaaloooohaaaa!!! Aloha is more than just hello…it’s the Hawaiian word for love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy, that is commonly used as a simple greeting but has a deeper cultural and spiritual significance to native Hawaiians…thanks Wikipedia 😉 On this little island of Kauai, also known as the “The Garden Island,” you get the sense of the deep meaning of Aloha from its residents.

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.

LSD: Little Slip Dress

The LBD, Little Black Dress, has a cousin that’s trending these days…the LSD. Not THAT LSD, the Little Slip Dress. The slip dress actually isn’t a new trend, it’s been around for decades. This silky, feminine silhouette has been flaunted by the likes of Marylin Monroe in the ’50s, Naomi Campbell in the ’90s, and now by your favorite Instagram girls on your feed.
