OFF SHOULDER AFFAIR

As we get into September and with fall quickly approaching, I wanted to style an outfit that would transition into the new season. Off shoulder tops and dresses will still be big in the fall just as it was in S/S '16. The shade of this top perfectly ties into fall while still being light weight for the warmer days. It has been my go to top in summer and I'm sure it will still have a strong presence in my wardrobe this season! As Fashion Week begins I'll continue reporting about different trends and looks we can all try this fall!

BIRTHDAY BOTANCIAL GARDEN OOTD

To begin my birthday celebration, I joined my dad for breakfast at Ted's Bulletin at the Mosaic District. I chose the french toast with sides of hash brown and eggs, which was amazing! It was my first time eating here and can't wait to go back to try more of their food! They play classic television shows like I Love Lucy and old-fashioned songs which gives the place a timeless feel. After breakfast we headed to D.C to visit the US Botanical Garden!

DESK INSPO




Having a clean and organized workspace is something I need to make sure that I am focused and dedicated to my work and studies. One of the things that keep me motivated is having an inspiration board and this can be made on any kind of canvas with images and words that inspire your future and things that you love. I have left spaces empty so I can add pieces as I find them or when I have new ideas. I also like having fashion material and magazines on my desk for outfit ideas or to read when I need a couple minutes to take a break from what ever I may be doing. I try to surround myself with positive messages and it helps me stay on task and on top of what I need to accomplish that day. Hope you find some inspiration from this post!

CAMEL & STEVE MADDEN OOTD




Hey there! Its currently snowing and while everyone is at home by the fire I decided to go out and shoot this outfit, I couldn't help missing the snow fall! Its 27 degrees outside and this outfit definitely kept me warm. Recently, I bought Steve Madden boots and I styled this look based on them.
Scarf: H&M
Coat: Forever 21
Sweater: H&M
Jeans: Calvin Klein
Boots: Steve Madden




The camel color is definitely a trend this season and it gives a nice luxury feel to any look.
