Happy Friday, gorgeous girlies!

I've shared many times how monochrome will always create the visual illusion of appearing taller, even more so if the pieces you're working with are well fitting to the body. It's important to note this if it's an effect you wish to achieve, since streamlining is simply working with pieces that either sculpt or hug the contours of your body comfortably.

Happy Thursday, my gorgeous friends!

If you're a reader of blogs or browse Instagram enough (who doesn't these days?) chances are you've come across JORD watches. I certainly have and with all the articles I've read and photos I've seen, I've always been intrigued by their watches, mainly due to their unique design, being comprised of the finest wood selections, eight to be exact!

Happy Hump Day, friends!

How's your week going so far? I hope it's going well and if not, don't worry, we're half way through the week, whoohoo! 

While we're on the topic of being happy and enthusiastic, there's a color combination that makes me happy and leaves me feeling ultra feminine, pink and blue!

Did you all know that blue is the most liked color? I believe I mentioned this in my YouTube video on the meaning of colors, which you can watch here in case you've missed it! I think it's a really helpful post, especially when planning outfits for important meetings such as an interview or presentation and how colors can manipulate (shhh!) emotions.

Happy Tuesday, my beautiful friends!

I'm pretty sure most of you are familiar with the term "nude" shoe, right? If not, it's basically a term for a shoe that's similar or an exact match to your skin color. Throughout the years, you may have noticed that there was a particular shade(s) of shoes that was categorized as nude, the colors found in both the first and second sets you see below. 

However, that's not a fair or accurate representation of what's to be classified as a nude shoe because we all come in all sorts of delicious colors (haha) and so we should all be fairly represented! I believe brands have, with the time, realized this and we're starting to see the term associated with just those particular shades subside. Christian Louboutin understood this concept and expanded his "nude collection" to represent a more diverse spectrum earlier this year! Great job Mr. Louboutin; if you need someone to test out any shades for upcoming collections, you know how to reach me! 

With that, I've compiled a few of my personal favorite shoes in a selection of various styles for each category below! This is not to say that only those who fall into the categories are the only ones who can or should wear them, absolutely not!

Happy Friday, beautiful friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful week and are a ready for the weekend! 

You may have realized in recent weeks that I'm having quite a moment with orange. There was a time when I kept reaching for pink, as we approached spring (remember that?!). Now, it seems as though I keep reverting back to orange and it's most likely do to the fact that it's a perfect summer color, both bright and fun!

Happy Thursday, my beautiful friends! 

As many of you may or may not know, Nordstrom is having their anniversary sale, which is their biggest SALE of the season! Since you can save on so many items, fashion and beauty alike, it can get a little overwhelming, to say the least!

Happy Hump Day, my beautiful friends!

White jeans are synonymous with summer, would you agree!? 

For YEARS (until a few months ago), I didn't own a pair of white jeans. I've had a pair of white high waisted pants you've seen me wear and style a number of times (HERE & HERE) but I always needed to wear Spanx under them because otherwise they'll show everything. You know, that stubborn cellulite that just doesn't want to leave no matter how many squats, lunges, or bread you give up eating? Uh huh. I, too, have it and though it's decreased tremendously since I've worked out and implemented some cardio into my routine and eat much healthier; it just won't permanently leave (insert eye roll emoji here).

Happy Tuesday, my gorgeous friends!

Today I'll be sharing some tips on how to successfully pull off colorful outfits, either it be in one colorful piece or a full on color block outfit, like this one! I've shared tips in the past on how to slowly implement color and prints into your wardrobe starting off with the most simple, accessories.

In today's post, we're tackling clothing, assuming you've become more comfortable with the idea of wearing color or perhaps always loved the idea of it, but never gave it a try. 

So, without further ado, let's get into my first key or tip, shall we!?

Happy Monday, my beautiful friends

Cobalt was a HUGE color trend a few seasons back and if you jumped on the bandwagon at the time and got a pair of pants, chances are you paired it with black because that's the first "color" I paired mine with surprisingly. Though it was a trend of the past, you can most certainly wear it now and well into fall.
