Pants Life: What I Wear to Work

I work part time at an Art Museum and its freezing in there. So unfortunately for me, I have to dress warm even though it feels like 95 degrees outside. I typically wear pants 1) to keep warm and 2) I wait to the last minute to get ready and I need a quick and easy outfit.

So all of the pants are from Old Navy Petite besides the Olive pair. I ordered them back in November during all the holiday sales. These pants are not only chic but comfortable. These pants are versatile, you can dress them up or go for a casual look, you can wear flats or heels with them as well.

The first outfit are these Relaxed Mid-Rise Harper Trousers in Black Leopard and a maroon sweater and lace-up flats. The leopard print and maroon pair well together. This outfit is for those casual days in the office or for those days when you are on your feet.

These flats are on clearance for $12 from American Eagle. These are all sold out in petite but, are still available in maternity. Click here if interested.

The second outfit is more professional. I wore this to a luncheon meeting. The outfit still has the black and white professional element, but the polka dots in the pants and the red lace up heels adds vibrancy and fun to it.

The third outfit is bold and by far my favorite. I put two of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer together and made it work appropriate (depending on your dress code). The material on the yellow pants was not what I expected. They are a bit thick and heavy, but once you have them on, you won’t notice.

If the yellow on yellow is too much for you, but you still want to play with color, I paired this Who What Wear Target top with dark olive green high waisted pants. The yellow in the top pops more with the dark pants. If you’re not up for wearing heels at work, I’ve worn sandal with this outfit during an outside event. Flats will work as well.

Colours of World! ​

IMG_0634

“Colours of the world (Spice up your life) Every boy and girl (Spice up your life) People of the world (Spice up your life) Aaahh!!!” Spice Up Your Life is my favorite Spice Girl song! Spice Girls is one of my favorite girl groups EVER! When thinking of the Spice Girls, it reminds me of S Club 7. (Ain’t no party like a, S Club party!) Does anyone remember them?

When I heard Victoria Beckham was coming out with a line at Target, I was excited. She has such great style and designs. The Victoria Beckham for Target collection has some great pieces. I originally wanted this pattern in the skirt set but it was sold out. I wish I would have brought more items from this collection when I purchased this romper, the items that I really want are sold out.

I really love this Retro Floral Romper. I like the vibrant bold pattern and colors. I’m glad it has a tie waist and belt to match. However, because of my height and size, the romper is a little big and make me look straight. So I pull the bottom up to make the top more flow, to give my body some shape.

IMG_0640IMG_0652

You can dress this romper up with a blazer and heels or dress it down with sandals or sneakers.  You can also play with color in your accessories with this romper like I did. But make sure its minimum accessories otherwise, your outfit would be too busy. Fashion blogger Color Me Courtney paired her romper with orange heels. Check out her Instagram account here.

Pop of Color

IMG_0551

Hey y’all! How was your Easter weekend?!

When I first saw this AEO Ahh-mazingly Soft Boyfriend Shirt, I fell in love with it. However, I didn’t buy it because I didn’t want to spend $45 on a shirt, that I was just going to wrap around my waist. Not sure why I never wear my plaid shirts as a shirt (unless I get cold) but I should try wearing them more often. Anyways, when I saw the shirt on clearance, it was mine! When they named it Ahh-mazingly Soft, they were not joking, it’s so soft. I love the colors, it makes it perfect to take your outfit from blah to fun and colorful. This boyfriend shirt is great is for spring.

IMG_0570IMG_0558 IMG_0548

These cute Flatforms are from payless. They are a little bit too big for me but they are in my correct size and the smallest size, a 5. They do hurt the back of my heel but other than that, the shoes are comfortable. These also come in a Silver Metallic. I really wanted these but my size is sold out.

Keep it Casual

IMG_0517

Hey guys!! Omg, I can’t believe it’s already April! Where has the time gone? April is an exciting month because my birthday is soon. Who else’s birthday is in April?! Happy birthday!

IMG_0529

This outfit is very casual. I would wear this running errands, somewhere that I would do a lot of walking such as Downtown Disney, going to the movies or dinner. I tend to wear jeans all the time. Even when it’s 90 degrees outside, I will still have on jeans. A way to make your casual outfit “pop” is to wear a bright or colorful tee. Adding a cool jacket will also bring style to your outfit. This could be a leather jacket, bomber jacket, or a denim jacket.

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.

17. Sheer- Sheer can be “scandalous”, I mean it’s see through. But its beautiful and can be worn in a classy way, especially sheer lace. You can layer with a bra top, shorts, a leather jacket or if you’re feeling bold, go topless. It’s your prerogative girlfriend!
