Burrr! It's Peacoat Season:)

I am defiantly feeling that cold weather hitting and have now busted out the peacoats. ❄️The typical jacket, cottony coat just do not cut it now a days.  Peacoats make all the difference in the world on a cold day and look fabulous!
I found a couple that will be added to my closet this season and recommend since they can pair with any style.

Fist pick: Victoria Secrets white peacoat - currently on sale! 😍

Second pick is the basic black look from the Steve Madden collection at Macy's and also on sale big time!

What peacoat look are you going for this winter??

Fave Fall Fit of the Week!

Its November already! That usually means scarf season begins for me. This my fave quick look of the week. That dark olive green tone fits perfect for the fall season and pair it with your scarf choice which can be almost any color and you have a simple stylistic fall fashion look that you'll feel great and comfy in :)
Most of us have these basic pieces already in our closet and can whip this look together. If not, head to your local TJ Maxx and you'll find it at an excellent price!

I would love to see your favorite fall fashion looks of this week are!
Thank you!

The Perfect Lip Balm

I'm constantly going through millions of lip balms, especially during the winter to avoid those nasty chapped lips we all hate!
I have finally found the perfect lip balm that makes my lips literally feel baby soft in any climate. You have to try the NYX Butter Lip Balm! (NYX Cosmetics) It will change your life! Or at least your chapped lips' life :) Adding a soft pink tint when applying, it feels incredibly soft and lasts for a good amount of time before having to reapply. And has a fruity taste to it too ;)  
At only $4, go out and grab your own before winter really hits and gets those lips kissable ready! http://www.nyxcosmetics.com/p-214-butter-lip-balm.aspx

How to dress for a warm day in a Freezing office!

Did you find the cutest outfit to wear to work this morning and it was going to be a warm day so it was perfect but then you get to the office and it is just freezing in there all day?! Talk about Goosebumps :/

I work in an office where the AC is always blasting, even in the winter! I find it difficult sometimes to wear the dresses or skirts or short sleeve tops I planned on wearing because I know I'm about to work in an igloo for the next 8 hours.
So how do you dress for this temperature and still strut your latest fashion pieces?
1. Turn down the ac ;)
2. Keep a basic solid colored cardigan or wrap sweater at your desk at all times
- I like to keep a black fleece sweater on my chair all the time to throw on or cover my legs which usually works every time!
3. Having a cup of hot tea or coffee to hold onto once in a while really helps too, speaking from experience...

Fact is, an office environment will remain freezing no matter what you're outfit is that day, so make that fashion statement as you'd like and just be prepared because as soon as you walk outside into that warm weather, it will all be worth it!

Let me know your ideas on keeping warm in that igloo you call "the office"! :)

Glamour Mag White fashion this fall

All white outfit in fall? I've noticed people can tend to stay on away from that white suits/dresses during cooler temps in fall. Don't be afraid to this 2013 season!

Glamour fashion online recently posted their Do's and Dont's for this fall. My favorite DO was "do take a chance on 
Winter whites". 
You'll really stand out in a positive light and just make sure all the pieces hug your body type properly to keep it flattering and stylistic :)

Check it out...

What will you be rewearing the most this summer?

Summer 2013 is here and in full effect! That summer fashion has been out for awhile now and if you're anything like me, you've most likely established what your wardrobe consist of. Out of everything I've purchased for my summer collection, I would have to say that my light denim vest is my favorite piece. I love pairing it with my summer dress, skirts, shorts and even just sporting it on the beach with my swimsuit. It's a great neutral fashion additive that I hope sticks around for another summer! The denim vest is a must have this season.

Instagram #straightfashion

I recently started a fashion page on Instagram for my own daily inspiration. I think this a great and simple way to get your preferred styles out there for anyone to view. And even though not everyone will agree with your fashion sense, it's you're own perception of style. You have to be daring and sport what you like to build that individualistic sense of fashion. These a basic looks but much more on and to come on my IG :) lets support each others style expressions!

Fall fashion right ahead!

I'm slowly seeing new trends coming out for fall. There's always that black tight, black boots and black blazer look that can't fail to stay on trend now and will certainly stick around for fall 2013! Always accent the black look with the right accessories like this floppy hat below and wear a light toned under shirt. Make the style your own :)

Orange and Pink: Do I wanna look like a grapefruit?

Some color schemes seem to just not go together and make you look like a fool. I was having a conversation with a friend the other day about how orange and semi hot pink would look together since I recently bought a new orange blazer that I have only worn with a black top. (post my look tomorrow!)

"You'd look like a grapefruit woman!" -Friend. I think the two colors would actually compliment eachother very well. It may not be daring for many fashionistas out there but this was a look I've never tried before. I usually stick to basic colors and make sure to accent them with simple tones. Orange and pink: definitely on my two color combinations I will be sporting this summer.

What do you think and are you down to look like a grapfruit with me? ;)

Daddy's little girl fashion sense?

Fashion thought today: So this weekend's father's day. What will you be wearing when celebrating the father figure(s) in your life??

I tend to put a lot of thought into the fashion I choose on a daily basis and especially on those special occasions. I came across an outfit that I thought could be perfect for a father's day event, granite the weather is sunny and warm. When I spotted it out, it resembled the perfect dash of femininity and innocence but maturity. Check it out and let me know what you think....  http://pinterest.com/pin/258464466087496081/

I cherish father's day since I am so grateful for the father I was blessed with. My dad is such a good hearted, generous man who would give back to the less fortunate even if it left him homeless. He was diagnosed with cancer two years ago and after an intense surgery and agonizing time frame of the unknowing results, he has been cancer free for a year!

Happy Father's Day All

Embrace your Passion: First Blog Ever :)

"I dont believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be" -Ken Venturi

Bam! That's when it hit me. I'm working a 9-5 Monday thru Friday job which I'm grateful for but is this really what I am meant to do?! I then began thinking what I've always loved doing through out my life, even as a child. Sure, working out and living healthy a life style has been very important to me since I was about 5 years old but that is my past time, hobby activity, not what i want as career.

The one thing that stuck with me was my passion for fashion and seeing how each person I walk by embraces their own indiviual style n some way. And my favorite part of every morning before work is picking out my outfit work and even what I'll be wearing to the gym later that day :P I may not like everything everybody wears but hey! who am I to judge their style. That's what they like and that right there is awesome! Fashion is one of the simplest ways we can boost our confidence.

A fashion collection I recently became intrigued with after my sister bought me this dress was a Kardashian Kollection. It covers curves in the right places, shows elegance and sexy at the same time and being 5'2" with an curvier athletic type build, I fell in love with my white Kardashian dress. This is one collection I will definitely be keeping an eye out for.

This is my first fashion blog :) And I would love to know what your favorite fashion trends or general style ideas are and even what you absolutely dread today! Can't wait to hear!

(Photos to come)

Thank you!
