How to style a pleated skirt

Wanted to share with you all a few ideas of how to style a pleated skirt. I’ve had this cream pleated skirt in my closet since the beginning of the summer, other than not wanting to get it dirty, I’m unsure what kept me back from wearing it so much. The summer heat isn’t easy to deal with and I always prefer wearing dresses and skirts to stay cool. The fun part about pleated skirts is you can pair just about any top with them – I prefer to stick with more of a fitted top or anything that I can make into a more fitted look. Read More

Style tips: your “shape”

Every girl has a different “body shape” that fall into a few “categories” that are either fruit related or direct descriptives. Apple, pear, curvy, straight, athletic, plus size, petite, fuller bust, flat, short, tall… the list goes on. Am I the only person who doesn’t particularly fall into these very specific categories? Sometimes it feels that way, which makes researching fits and trends all the more difficult. Your style should be a reflection of who you are as a person, so essentially it is what you like… whether it is trendy or not. Flattering lines and hems are key. Some women just say “fuck it, I like it – I’M WEARING IT!” whether it looks flattering or not. All the more power to you, but I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have done that and seen a photo of myself just to say “WTF WAS I THINKING?!” Hence the reason for my post. These tips are a “friendship” of style tips and personality. Read More

Finding multiple looks for one new item shouldn’t be difficult, but if you are like me – it is a TASK! When I got these jeans I was so excited that I had outfit ideas flowing out of my ears for days….. and then when it came down to actually styling them, well I got stuck.

Then you impulsively shop and have more clothes than you know what to do with but never know which new top you want to wear… So I got focused. And came up with these 3 looks… Read More

Camel Coat

Who doesn’t own a camel coat? I feel like every girl and every blogger has done a look with this style/color coat. Now I am not hating on this coat whatsoever, but it was more of a delayed reaction as to why it is such a great staple to a girls closet. IT GOES WITH NEARLY EVERYTHING! I mean hello, it is the perfect neutral that you can throw over nearly any damn look. And for a girl who tends to always wear black head to toe this is a great way to bring some other color to my look other than white.
