Colorful Leopard and Tough Leather

Hi, everybody! This past Sunday, I had some fun playing with proportion and layers. Earlier in the week, I saw my leather vest hanging next to a long, scarf-like vest in my closet, and I thought they might look good together! I wore a long-sleeved, black shirt with the scarf vest, then I cinched it in with a belt. I topped it off with the leather vest and a sparkly necklace! What do you think?

I felt sort of like a rock star while I wore this outfit, since the vest was floating around me like a skirt, and I had the toughness of the leather on top! The tall leather boots didn't hurt either...
Would you ever wear an outfit like this?

Rainy Day Outfit~ Denim-On-Denim and Silver Accents

Hi, everybody! Today was a rainy day, so I got to bundle up to go to church. I didn't feel like putting very much effort into what I was wearing today, but I still got to wear something that I really like. It's comfy and cozy, yet still chic and put together.
OK, so you know how the whole denim-on-denim trend keeps coming and going? One minute, it's all the rage, then the next, it's considered tacky or too 80's (at least in my mind)? Well, I took that trend on today. The trick is not to wear matchy-matchy denim, and to wear it with confidence. Like I mentioned in the previous post, confidence is key! But even if you don't have very much confidence when it comes to fashion, this is still a really easy outfit to wear. All you need is a light colored chambray top, dark washed jeans, and some neutral basics!
This is the trench coat I topped my denim outfit with. It was a good friend to me in the rain today.

And here is what was underneath the coat! My denim shirt and jeans, sparkly silver converse, and a soft grey infinity scarf. The scarf definitely helped to keep me warm.

I'll admit it, in the past I haven't embraced the denim-on-denim trend with great enthusiasm (at all), but I guess that is something fun about fashion. You can change your mind! You can choose to do something new every day, and you don't have to stick to just one style or idea all the time.
Maybe this inspired you to try a new trend that you haven't dared to before, or maybe you want to give the denim-on-denim look a whirl. Whatever it is, feel free to email me at or comment below with any questions you have.
Have a great day!

Paris Pink and Army Green

Hi, everybody! So, two days ago was New Years! I had a great day, and I hope you did too. Any resolutions for this year? Maybe you want to try wearing more stylish clothing more often, develop a new style, or become more confident. Confidence definitely rubs off onto how you carry yourself. And what I have noticed, is that if you are confident, then even if you are just wearing jeans and simple shirt, you can still make it look amazing, just by your attitude (or the energy that you give off). A nice hairstyle and pretty makeup can't hurt either. ;)
For my New Year's day, I wore a new shirt that I received as a Christmas gift and a military style jacket that I've had for a while. The peach top has black Eiffel Towers all over it, and a strip of lace on the back (which you can't see in these photos). The jacket I'm wearing is one of my favorites to throw on over pretty much anything, since it makes any outfit look instantly put together. Pair these two items together with skinny jeans, a fringe scarf, and combat boots, and you are all set for a fabulous day!

I hope that you are inspired to experiment with your wardrobe this year, and maybe even try something new! If you have a piece of clothing or a trend that you want to try, but are scared to or just don't know how you would wear it, leave a comment below or email me at with your questions! I will gladly answer them to the best of my ability.
Have a great start to your year!
