Gingham Lookbook

Oppa Gingham Style! Did you see what I did there, who remembers that song from Psy?Gingham is everywhere! How can it not be its such a great print! You can get Gingham in skirts, dresses, shorts, pants, and all different styles of tops. And most likely it comes in your favorite color. Other than the traditional black and white I’ve seen gingham in navy, red, pink, teal, or yellow to name a few.

LOOK 1

For this outfit, I wanted to keep it casual and go for that all blue look. Wearing the same color tone is quite popular right now. I added my rose gold shoes mules and gold accessories to complete this look. I think this look is great for running around or when you’re spending time outdoors.

LOOK 2

How cute is this romper?! I love the little peek-a-boo, it gives this romper a sexy feeling. I have to different shoe options for you. The first one is a pair of black mules to make the outfit more casual. Then I added theses hot pink wedges for a playful look. I feel like both of these options are great for a day time look. This would be great for a lunch date or mimosas with the girls. Also, sandals would be a great pair as well. For a night time look, I would wear this romper with a pair of heels. I don’t have Navy heels so I would go for either a black or nude pair of heels. In these pictures, I wore a bra but you can see it peeking through the peek-a-boo (cheater lol). I tend to wear a bra to make it look like I have some boobs but I think for this I will just go braless. This AEO Knot Keyhole Romper is still available in Large and X-Large.

LOOK 3

This is my easy on the go outfit! I am one of those people who gets ready at the last minute, so I need those go to outfits. I basically took the first outfit and switched the skirt for a pair of jeans. I also added this cute Vera Bradley blue and orange bag (Go Gators!) to add a pop of color to this look!

LOOK 4

This is by far my favorite Gingham purchase! I love everything about this dress, the ruffles, the bell sleeves, the cold shoulders and the length is great. The dress is a bit too big but it’s not noticeable. l This is my go to dress for events such as weddings. I can’t wait until it gets a bit cooler, which is in the 80s for Floridians so I can wear this more. I think these cute red lace up sandals add some fun and excitement to the dress. I took the look a bit further and added these shades of pink earrings, I think it adds a great touch. Depending on what type of event I’m going to will depend on how much color I will wear.

IMG_1403IMG_1397IMG_1402 2IMG_1404Also, I love this dress because it makes me want to dance!

Summer Trend: Lace Top

IMG_1076

Lace is such a huge trend for this Summer. When it comes to lace, you can either be daring by wearing lace items see through or you can be a bit more conservative. The most popular way I’ve been seeing is wearing a lace top or dress with a t-shirt underneath. When I saw this top, I fell in love with it and had to buy it. My favorite part about this lace tank top is, it came with the white cami tee but it’s not attached to each other, it’s two separate pieces.

IMG_1079

You can wear this lace combo in so many ways. With ripped crop jeans, black jeans, high waisted shorts, a maxi skirt.

This top is currently on clearance for $13.99. It comes in either Black/White and White/Gray in sizes XXS-XXL. If you’re interested in purchasing this cute top, click here.

17 Hot Runway Trends of 2017: Spring/Summer

I’m so excited for Spring Trends! There are so many bold, colorful and fun fashion statements. I need to start my Spring shopping. Some of these trends you may already have seen all over social media and hopefully, I told you about some trends you haven’t seen yet.

Here are some of my favorite trends from the Runway. I hope you get some great inspiration! 😀 (P.S. this blog is long)

1. Bold Stripes- Bold and colorful. This trend you can wear a separate piece or top to bottom stripes. This trend you can get tops, skirts, dresses, pants, blazers. I think this style is a classic and will be trendy at least until next spring.

2. Khaki tones – I like the olive and dark green color. The great thing about khaki tones is that you can pair it with pretty much any other color. Plus khaki and olive green look really good on so many skin tones. These looks are great inspiration for work outfits or casual wear.

3. All Yellow-head to toe, banana. I use to wear color all the time in my high school days and early 20s. I’m not sure what happened but I feel like I never wear color that much anymore. With color being in the Spring Runways, I was in love. My goal is to wear more color (bright colors).

4. All Blue- I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa. This trend is about wearing different shades of blue in your outfit. Or you can wear the same shade of blue in different textures like Zendaya did for her Seventeen Magazine photo shoot. Looking at the other trends for Spring, you will see lots of blue.

5. Bra Top- I’m excited that crop top/bra tops are still trendy. When it’s a 100 degrees outside during the summer and humid, sometimes less clothing is best. But with this trend, you can wear a bra top in many ways. By its self, over a tee shirt, a baggy jacket over it, a sheer top over.

6. Ruffles- To me, ruffles say a great time💃🏾. But it’s also a soft, feminine romantic look. You’re going to see a lot of ruffles in tops; ruffles in the shoulder area, particular one shoulder tops and on the sleeves of the arm(s). You will also see the ruffle trend in asymmetrical dresses and voluminous skirts.

7. Neon- Standout and be bright. If neon scares you, you can add a little bit to your outfit. For example, add a pop of neon to your all black outfit.

8. Single Shoulder Cutout– whether its a single cutout or you pull your shirt to the side for that cool asymmetric look.

9. Patchwork- For sure, we will be seeing this trend on everything such as denim jeans and shorts, denim jackets, bomber jackets, accessories like purses and tote bags. This is just a few examples. What’s cool about patchwork is that you can buy a look or create your own. With the patchwork is about mixing vintage fabrics and mixing prints and fabrics.

10. Flatforms- a way to make you taller without the heels! AHHHHHH. So basically, Flatforms are platforms heels with a flat sole. You can get flatforms in sandals or sneaker style and pretty much in every color. Depending on what style you are looking for you can find them from Public Desire, Urban Outfitters, Asos, even payless (which mine should be in the mail!)

11. PINK- Pink is a big trend this year. Whether it’s a baby bubble gum pink, pastel pink,  bright pink or a dark pink. Your look can be head to toe pink or you can pair it with red, blue, yellow, orange, purple, brown, white, or black.

12. All denim/ Unique denim- All denim, All day. Denim that is different and “untraditional” whether its jeans, jackets, dresses, skirts, tops.

13. Flower Girl-Floral was all over the runways for Spring. You can wear a floral top, skirt, pants, shorts, a maxi dress, blazer, trench coat with a solid piece or head to toe floral, or a two piece. You can also mix and match the floral patterns, as long as they are in the size as floral or color tones. On the runway there were so many different looks, you can do a soft romantic floral pattern, bold, colorful, or for a retro inspired look.

14. Athletic Wear- The cool thing about wearing athletic wear is one you look like you are “fit” or at least you think that you do lol. Think Adidas tracksuit or Juicy Couture sweats. You can wear the track pants and jacket together or dress up the track pants with a button down top. Target has theses really cute track pants, I bought them but I forgot that I’m 4’10 (on a good day) and they were too big and too long.

15. Graphic Tee- graphic tees are always fun. You don’t have to do the normal band tee. I’ve seen some great graphic tees from forever 21 where they are ripped or have the lace tie up. I seen many bloggers at NYFW wear graphic tees with a powerful/inspiring/political message on it. Think graphic tees with an edge to your outfit.

16. White out- all white, oversized dress shirt, flowy, sheer, romantic look. You can complete the look with white, nude, or black shoes or go for a shoe with pop of color such as red, teal, or pink.
