Yellow has become one of the trendiest colors when looking to add a POP of interest to any outfit. Whether with bold pieces or subtle accessories, it’s never difficult to find a place for this banana shade. I’ve rounded up some of the yellow pieces below that I wouldn’t mind adding to my own personal wardrobe. Don’t forget to click the images to shop my picks! Until next time!
While it is super exciting to finally begin to shoot more “Spring-appropriate” pieces, the current temperatures on the East Coast are still a little brisk at times. In all honestly, I was fully prepared to shoot this look without the outer layer but on second thought, and with a co-sign from my photographer, I realized that the coat actually added another element of dimension and interest to the outfit. I haven’t dabbled much into the print-mixing trend but this last minute change allowed me to do just that! I found that it is much easier to mix prints when they have a common base color; in this instance, black. In my opinion, the plaid against the floral print perfectly represented the seasonal transitions. Both prints were also neutral enough to allow me to incorporate yet another trend which is the pop of yellow. Aside from this cross-body bag bringing out the yellow stripe in the plaid print, the gold hardware also matched that of my coat as well. I absolutely love how this look came together and how each piece complimented something in the other. I’ve had these completely bleached cream colored jeans for a few years now and I still find endless new ways to incorporate them into my wardrobe, especially as we approach the warmer months. There’s something about the color that adds a unique quality to any outfit and definitely emphasized the flowers on my top more than I think a regular pair of blue jeans would have. To finish off the look I kept it minimal with my favorite (and only) pair of black mules. I’m going to step out on limb and say that this look might actually be a new favorite, but let me know what you think in the comments below. Until next time!

As I knew this was going to be my first blog post of the Spring, I wanted to make sure I styled something weather appropriate and fun. I like this look because it is composed pretty evenly of items that I already had in my closet, and a couple new pieces to freshen things up. I recently bought this shirt-dress and really didn’t think much about posting it on my blog; that is, until I found this belt. Within the last 6 months, I’ve really seen the corset belt trend take off. Whether paired over a t-shirt, blazer, or dress, you name it; this trend is definitely not slowing down anytime soon. Personally, I’ve never been much of a belt person but I also never shy away from trying new things. When I saw this piece during one of my shopping trips, I instantly envisioned this top and began building the ensemble in my mind. I decided on the white accessory because aside from moving into the warmer months, I felt like it provided more of a challenge than the usual black options. I kept the rest of the look pretty simple and sleek with black leather leggings and pumps. As we all know I love adding dimension with different textures, and the smooth matte finish against the lighter fabric of the top provided the perfect contrast. At this point, I knew the look was almost complete but I still felt like there were a few elements missing. I decided to play off of the navy stripes in the shirt as well, and added a dark denim choker for a bit of edge and a light puffer jacket as an extra layer. In all honesty I totally forgot about this jacket, which I’ve had since college, but the navy blue sheen provided the most amazing final touch to tie this look together. I must say, after shooting this outfit, I am beyond excited to see what inspiring style and trends this season brings. Until next time!

Track pants have been a leading force in street-style lately. I love the 90’s sporty/casual vibe they provide to any look no matter what the occasion is, and the effortless versatility that comes with them as well. Please see a few of my picks below and let me know what you think of this trend in the comments. Until next time!
I’ve been noticing a HUGE trend involving primary colors over the last few months. For me, this was not something I could really ever see myself partaking in as I tend to gravitate towards darker, more neutral tones. That said, I purchased these trousers during my fashion week preparation and thought that they would be a nice statement piece to wear to a few shows. As it turns out I ended up loving them, and after being captured wearing them on a few different street-style blog sites(here), I knew I had to style them for a post of my own. Because these trousers are SO bright, I wanted to keep them as the focal point of the look. This is not to say that you can’t pair them with other vivid pieces, but I wanted to keep the look authentic to my personal style. To keep things fairly casual, I paired the trousers with my medium blue chambray top. I thought the combination of these garments really made for a nice transitional Spring look with a tailored flare. For a bit of dimension, I added a lace bralet underneath the top and had the shirt unbuttoned about half way to expose the delicate details. I continued to play off of the black stripe detail on the pants and added a light over-sized cardigan for some added movement. To accessorize, I opted for my frequently used leather quilted purse and my sleek heeled booties for a bit of height. Though fairly minimal, I was quite pleased with how this turned out. With a peachy-nude lip and my gold aviator frames, I was ready for an outdoor brunch with friends or a chic business meeting. I hope you guys enjoyed this look and let me know what you think of the primary color trend in the comments below. Until next time!

As we are moving into the Spring, it will soon be time to put away our extra layers and heavy fabrics and opt for some lighter, more breathable alternatives.

As a style influencer, it’s important to showcase looks for the upcoming seasons before they actually turn, and unfortunately, a lot of times that requires being improperly dressed for the current weather conditions. This past weekend was a prime example of that as I shot a few Spring looks in the below freezing temperatures. What can I say, anything for the love of fashion…right? Anyway, this cropped biker jacket debuted Fall 2016, and actually ended up being one of my Christmas presents last year. From the moment I tried it on in the store, I knew I had to style it for my blog and showcase it’s beauty. It came in couple different colors, and even more now that we are moving into warmer months, but there was something about the grey that drew me in and completely inspired my vision. Aside from the color, the soft suede-like texture is absolutely a dream and an unexpectedly pleasant surprise that receives an overwhelming amount of compliments whenever I wear this item. I didn’t exactly know right away how I wanted to style this piece, but I knew it had to be good, so I waited a few months and FINALLY found the key pieces I needed pull it all together. For about the last six months, I’ve been loving the combination of navy and grey, and it seems that this pairing will continue to make a statement in my wardrobe throughout 2017. While on one of my recent shopping trips, I found this gorgeous satin midi skirt and knew the contrast in textures as well as structure would make for a chic and eye-catching ensemble. At this point, I was still a bit unsure of the top I wanted to wear, but finally decided on a throwback graphic Guess logo tank. Aside from being a super cool homage to the 90’s, I thought this was the perfect piece to add a casual flair to the look and break up the dressier pieces. To finish it all off, I grabbed my black pumps with silver ankle cuff hardware, to compliment my outerwear, and a leather choker for fun. There were so many statement pieces with this look, I didn’t even bother grabbing a bag. I absolutely loved how it turned out and am even more excited for warm weather and fewer layers. Until next time!
