Happy Monday my sweet friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I took last week off to spend some time with my mother-in-law and family. I mentioned in this post what's been going on these past couple of months, in case you've missed it. It was so good seeing her and spending quality time with her and most importantly, seeing Aviah with her. We're praying and believing that she'll have many more years to make fun and joyful memories with her :)

Since I've been taking the time to spend with loved ones, I haven't had the chance to take outfit photos, but thought it would be a great idea to share some red outfits from the archives in hopes of inspiring you in wearing the trending color. Though purple is the color of year, red is still going strong as a trending color this spring and summer. It's a color that looks great on everyone, as it comes in various shades and hues that are sure to flatter any skin tone, cool, warm or in between. I actually touched upon that exact topic in this blog post back when I was pregnant and rediscovering my love for the color. I'm sure you'll find the tips I've shared in the post helpful!

Is there a color you're loving most this season? Are you a fan of red? I say when in doubt, you can always experiment with a red lip and/or nails. They're such easy and chic ways to add a pop of color to your everyday style, no matter what that may be. 

Thanks for stopping by, my dear friends, and I look forward to seeing you all in Wednesday's post!

 

XO,

Happy Monday my friends!

One of many ways to look chic in the winter (and all year long) is to go monochrome. We've talked about the power of monochrome quite a few times on the blog, but I wanted to break it down a bit more in this post and we all know that repetition and the more examples make for better understanding and inspiration. At least that what works for me! So, I figured it would be a great idea to compile them all into one post

Happy Friday friends!

When was the last time you wore a mini-skirt if ever? Okay, how often do you wear a mini? I'm guessing that many of you don't wear them for the simple fact that they're well, mini, and quite short. I can totally understand if you've avoided anythign mid though for fear of looking risque becaues they require more thought when styling to prevent such a vibe. I for one stayed clear for many years because I'd like to consider myself quite conservative when it comes to my fashion choices and the thought of exposing a bit too much doesn't necessarily appeal to me.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

Since I've been doing some online shopping these past few days, I figured it would be a good idea to share some of the things I've ordered and some things I've been eyeing, in case you plan on doing some shopping yourselves and want some inspiration. Most of the things I've purchased and are eyeing is from H&M and I ordered one of the white mules I featured in Friday's postnumber 6. As much as I wanted to get everything that made my eyes look like the heart eyed emoji, I know my wallet would tightly close on me, so I got what I knew I'd get the absolute most wear out of for the start of spring and into summer. On that note, the pieces with the heart eyed emoji are the ones on my wish list, everything else is what I purchased.

Happy Friday my lovely friends!

I'm sure many of you know that white boots are quite the trend this winter and have been since the start of fall. I personally don't see the white shoe trend slowing down this spring and summer. In fact, I think it'll only gain more momentum, since they'll be more practical to wear during the warmer months. I mean, let's face it, though white boots may look uber chic, they aren't necessarily the shoe of choice when it's raining, snowing, or there's a mix of both, which basically defines winter; at least in the northeast. It's almost inevitable that you'll get them dirty and it can be annoying to try and wipe them clean again.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

Being a fashion blogger, I do challenge myself to think outside the box and wear clothing that perhaps I wouldn't otherwise wear and through doing so, I've found that some pieces I'd perhaps turn my head to are actually quite practical, one of which are faux fur coats. Before blogging, I would've most likely thought, though stylish, they wouldn't be at all practical for everyday kind of wear and save them more for special occasions. Honestly, that couldn't be further from the truth. Perhaps some of you feel this way and for that reason alone don't own one, feeling as though you'd never get any real use out if it. These three outfits are ones that I feel can be easily worn on the regular. It all comes down to how you put the pieces together to make it more practical and less forced.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

When it comes to creating a chic and stylish outfit that's easy, you're best bet is to seek out black pieces. You'll always get plenty of use by styling them with other colors and prints, but they look all sorts of chic when paired together. Key pieces to have are a pair of sunglasses, a top, bag and pair of shoes. Since we're styling for the colder months, the top can be in the form of a sweater or turtleneck. What I love about the turtleneck in particular is that it looks so chic when done with just about any bottom. However, I love it even more when it's paired with denim. There's something about the simplistic combination that's effortlessly edgy and sleek.

Happy Thursday my sweet friends!

Today I'm sharing some boots (26 to be exact!) I've stumbled across and absolutely love. We've been talking a lot about winter fashion for obvious reasons, t's winter. I like to look for and share different ways we can make our winter outfits that much more visually appealing, without requiring much effort because most of us just don't have the energy (or desire) to sit and contemplate a stylish and practical outfit every single day in the winter.

Happy Thursday my gorgeous friends!

As I'm typing this, we're bracing ourselves for a supposedly major snowstorm set to hit the northeast and our furnace blew conveniently. Luckily we have a fire place, send all the positive (and cozy) vibes our way. 

Anyway, you all know how much I love my outerwear. From fur coats to leather jackets and vest, I'm all for them. Why? They're not only practically in keeping you warm, but can make an entire outfit. In fact, during the winter, it can be an entire outfit, since we're so bundled up that not many get to witness the great amount of (stylish) effort we've put into what's underneath. That said, when there's an outerwear trend, my ears and eyes perk up. This winter, it's all about the puffer coat. It's a bit nostalgic for me having grown up in the '90s and owning so many different colors and styles. I'm glad they've made a comeback and though some of the colors and finishes (hello, metallic!) are very reminiscent, there are some more contemporary styles that have been added, such as velvet and the teddy fabrics, can you say ultra cozy!?

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend! As mentioned in my previous post last week, I have been working really hard on sleep training Aviah. It was real tough the first few days, but as I persisted in spite of all the crying, we've been making some huge improvements! We've decided to start the process of gradually, so I've been focusing on having her sleep in her crib during her daytime naps first. Prior to her napping in her crib, she'd nap in one of her swings we have set up in our living room. When she was a newborn, she'd be able to sleep for hours in it with no problem. Now, as she's gotten bigger and is more alert and attentive, any little noise wakes her, which has been causing her to get less sleep during the day. So, I figured it was time to transition her into her room. I mean, we did purchase a gorgeous crib for her, so she should be sleeping in it, right? Lol.
