Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

Tis the season of all things leopard! You all know that I'm a huge lover of leopard print, so I wear and embrace it all year long, but this is the time of year we tend to see it worn most, especially in outerwear. When it comes to styling, I'd suggest approaching it any other way you'd style a black coat, considering that leopard and all other animal prints are typically viewed as neutrals.

Happy Friday my gorgeous friends!
 
Today we're wrapping up my gift guide series, no pun intended. I was pregnant during the holidays last year and some of my family members gifted me with mom-to-be gifts that I thought were so cute. I don't know, something about receiving gifts from others before my baby shower that had to do with my pregnancy and baby made it that much more real and sentimental. Perhaps it was the hormones, but I loved it, haha!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had such a great time with my family and disconnecting from all devices, it felt so good to live in the moment and enjoy Aviah's first holiday! 

Over the weekend, I did some holiday shopping, taking full advantage of some of the awesome sales that are still going on right now. In times past, sales would mostly be on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (today) and that's it. Now, many stores are extending their sales throughout the week, which is awesome! So, I thought I'd share some of my personal favorites in the categories 'Treat Yo' Self', 'For Her', For Him and 'For Mama-to-be & Baby' this week. This is the first time I'll be sharing a full on gift guide, so I hope you love it!

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

Are you all ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow? If you've been a reader for some time now, then you may remember that I've mentioned that I do all the cooking on Thanksgiving and Eddie takes over on Christmas. I've got everything ready to go. I'm super excited about the holiday season this year, since it'll be the first season for Aviah! I feel that the holidays are all the more special with kids and I'm looking forward to starting traditions with her. She's already getting used to being in the kitchen with me every night when I cook dinner; I love to cook and I hope she will, too!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

Does this leather shirt look familiar to you? I'm sure it does because it's quite an original, lol. I know that this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I was instantly drawn to it when I snagged it at a thrift shop in NYC over a year ago. I first styled it here. As you can see, I wasn't too thrilled with the way the outfit came together, haha. I asked you all to weigh in on how I should style it next and the most popular suggestion was to pair with all black, as I've done today.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

If there's one styling technique that's sure to look amazing on everyone, is super easy, and can be done all year long, it's monochrome! Though it's such an easy technique, it can be done in a couple of ways. The first would be wearing an outfit comprised of the exact same shade of the color you choose or to work with various hues of the color. Come fall, I think a great way to work monochrome would be the latter.

Happy Friday my dear friends!

Today's look is brought to you by Charming Charlie, the first of a two part series; I'll be sharing the second look on Monday! I was so excited when the opportunity to collaborate with them was presented to me because I've been a fan of their jewelry and unique color coordinated interior design concept from the very beginning. If you've been a longtime reader of The Style Contour, from back when it was Jalisa's Fashion Files, you may remember that most of the statement jewelry I wore here on the blog and on my YouTube channel, when I was uploading videos, was from them! I used to always get asked on YouTube where my necklaces were from and they were almost always from Charming Charlie

Happy Wednesday my dear friends!

After having Aviah, my most requested blog post has been on how I lost my pregnancy weight so fast. One week after giving birth, I returned to blogging (see my first post here) and in that post, I had already lost 16 of the 26 pounds I gained throughout my pregnancy. I'll be sectioning off this post for you to easily skim and read what you're most interested in, if you don't have the time to read the entire post, which I'll try to keep as short and to the point as I can, without leaving out anything you might want to know.

Happy Monday my dear friends!

There are quite a few colors that are trending this fall/winter season, one of which is red! It was actually trending this past spring/summer, along with pink, which we discussed in this blog post. I feel that when a trend gains momentum with time, it's because it's practical for the everyday person like you and I. When it gains popularity, we then see more options, which allows for us to experiment with the trend, big or small, save or splurge.

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

I wanted to look for yet another way to style this blue striped shirt you've seen my style a number of times this past summer. We often see light blue stripes during the warmer months, but I wanted to demonstrate how you can still get use out of them during the fall, by styling them with more seasonal pieces, such as dark chocolate-y browns and leather. I had originally intended on wearing nude pumps, but my leopard ones came to mind. I thought it would make for a great pattern mix; I love the way it turned out!
