AUTHENTIC EMBROIDERY

Happy weekend! Its time to trade in your work pants for some comfortable jeans, I've been living in this pair from Gap since I got them! This season has been huge on embroidery and flower prints on everything to bomber jackets, bags, shoes to denim. We can blame Gucci for their fabulous embroidery, floral touches and old fashioned style and I'm not complaining. I now want all my jeans to have embroidery on them since they released their pre-fall collection. We cant all afford Gucci, but Gap definitely satisfied by crave for them!

GOLDEN AUTUMN

I've been loving mustard yellow lately in sweaters, dresses, bags and really everything that it comes in. Just when I thought it was getting cooler and summer was officially over, we get 80 degree weather in October! This dress has short sleeves which is perfect for the warmer fall days and I paired it with this lightweight kimono and felt hat to tie the look together.

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!

SUMMER 16

With summer coming to a close, I had to end it right by spending a day at Virginia Beach. It was my first time at this beach and besides it getting really crowded, its a great beach with lots of surrounding places. Walking along the boardwalk you can find cute shops and restaurants while looking out to the ocean.

CASUAL ARMY GREEN

Happy Saturday everyone! In this look I decided to put together an army inspired outfit with more feminine touches. My Moschino bag that is featured is my favorite at the moment because of its shape and versatility! I'm so in love with it and my new sunglasses by Derek Lam is definitely going in my next monthly favorites!

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!

PINK IN CENTRAL PARK

I have been in New York City for the past three days and the weather today was absolutely beautiful! It was a great day for exploring outside and wear this new blush pink coat I picked up from H&M. I started the day with brunch with my sister at Sarabeth's which overlooks the park and has the best pancakes I've ever had! I definitely will come back here when I visit again!

SUEDE AFFAIR




Suede have been very big this season and a trend that will carry through winter. I thought I would incorporate it to my outfit for this look. I have chosen a suede draped vest from Max Studio and has a beautiful a symmetric style. It can be styled with many other outfits but I wanted to do an everyday/casual look also featuring my go to shoes to dress up any outfit.
