Prettiest dresses on Pinterest

Good morning, Everyone! If you read my blog on regular basis, you know how I feel about little black dresses. One of my Holiday staples, I love the fact that you can style LBD in an infinite number of ways. Take today's outfit for example, I wanted to create a very polished, evening look so, I decided to take a classic approach, and paired my LBD with a sparkly clutch and statement jewelry. Now, when it comes to styling an evening look, jewelry is definitely something I pay attention to the most. And for me, nothing says evening quite like a pair of statement earrings.

The ones I am wearing in this post, are my absolute favorite pair at the moment! A big fan of Kendra Scott jewelry in general, I spotted them a few weeks ago and simply couldn't resist. Can you blame me?:) Bold, beautiful and stylish I think, they are an epitome of luxury. Pretty much a perfect statement piece, to add drama to any evening look! How about you guys, what is your favorite way of styling a little black dress?











BLACK N' BLUE

Good morning, Everyone! How is your week going so far?

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to a few of my recent Fall acquisitions, starting with the amazing leather detail coat I'm wearing in this post. If I had to name the most essential piece of outwear every girl should have in her closet, a great black coat would be it.

Aside from impeccable tailoring, fit and length, reason why I love this particular one, is the presence of those leather details. You know me, I can't live without a bit of embellishment!:) But in this particular instance, I feel that the leather collar and sleeves add a bit of an edge to an otherwise classic-fitting coat.

Another essential I can't imagine living without is a pair of black skinny jeans. Currently, I am a bit partial to coated denim, and the jeans I am wearing in today's post are definitely my favorite pair at the moment. Generally speaking a pair of perfect-fitting black jeans is not always easy to find, but these are soft and comfortable, yet have enough stretch to maintain shape throughout the day. Oh, and my personal favorite thing about them - rose gold zipper detailing on the sides:)

Finally, I don't think it's a secret I am a little obsessed with cobalt. Ok, maybe a little more than obsessed:) But in my defense, cobalt is one of those amazing colors that pairs beautifully with just about anything. Naturally, once I spotted this gorgeous trapeze bag featuring bright cobalt front, black leather and metal corners, it was love at first sight! It's completely crazy but it looks great with everything in my closet! Seriously! So, hopefully you won't mind seeing quite a bit of this bad boy on my blog in the near future:)!

Hello gorgeous people, how are you? I hope everything is well and you are enjoying your fabulous weekend.

I have had a long week so far. From endless events, meetings, hospital appointments to photo-shoots and training for the San Francisco half marathon with Nike.. I am not lying when I say, I have not done any sort of work out since the last marathon, which was back in November last year. You can just imagine how I am feeling right now.

But hey, any challenge is good right?


Cozy Basics

J.Crew Collection turtleneck // Rich & Skinny jeans c/o (similar) Schutz heels (more options below) // YSL bag A cashmere turtleneck with boyfriend jeans is such a cozy, classic combo. Add a fun pair of heels to the mix and you’re ready for brunch with the girls and a day of shopping. I’ve been taking major advantage of the winter sales that are going on this week. Don’t miss out! Stuart Weitzman just marked down the 5050 boots, Tibi just marked down this gorgeous lace dress and this peplum top, and Shopbop just added a ton of new items to their sale section.


Pumpkin Spice

H and M sweater, [similar faux leather shorts], GUESS Dandra boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Kenneth Cole earrings [similar], Prada sunglasses

October is the very only month in the entire year that I will wear orange and black together. It just screams Halloween! But there is something about this beautiful glowing orange sweater that I just couldn't resist and I am excited to wear this sweater with denim later on during the winter months.

I've started wearing earrings for the first time in years. This is not because I suddenly got my ears pierced or I found a special metal/metal coating. (I got my ears pierced around 15 years ago and they have never closed. As for anything that goes through the piercing, my ear simply cannot stand it.) It is because I finally realized I can just buy any earrings that catch my eye and then convert them into clip-ons! It's pretty easy and all you need are needle nose pliers, epoxy 330 glue, foam, toothpicks, clip-ons and earrings.

As for these boots, I did think they looked better on my sister who has wider legs which filled out the boot better. Regardless, I really like how the heel is at a comfortable height and they do stay up like a proper thigh boot should. Also don't forget to enter the GUESS sweepstakes on Instagram by tagging your photo with #BootieShot and #PosttoEnter to win a weeks worth of GUESS shoes!


Office-Ready

Sheinside blazer, White House/Black Market leopard shirt and earrings, Francescas pants [similar], Prada Saffiano Lux bag, Steve Madden heels [similar] A little office ready inspiration for Monday :) Seriously in love with my new silk leopard blouse and earrings from my first White House/Black Market mini haul. I think it is part of their newest collection. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


Sarena

BB Dakota faux fur vest, HM top and denim, Amrita Singh necklace, Ivanka Trump Sarena boots, Coach bag [similar] I felt like going for a cozy look since I planned to be out in the evening. My statement necklace by Amrita Singh really steals the show but of course the faux fur and suede OTK (over the knee) boots pull it all together. In fact, faux fur vests are so versatile that I've probably been wearing this one (off the blog) a little too much. But that is most definitely a good thing :).


Fall Elements

Finally, a fall look. And unfortunately, still no fall weather. As you can probably tell I walked in circles to shoot this so you could really see a lot more angles than we typically go for :) I personally love the color combo but more than anything it's the cut that matters here.

These booties add a lot of edginess while the skirt keeps it feminine and the shirt gives a cozy feel. (It is actually the coziest shirt I have ever felt.) I brought along a tweed jacket too but it is still not cold enough for that! By the way — the Naturebox giveaway is ending tonight and GUESS.com is giving away a week's worth of shoes.

PASTELS IN FALL

Pink Coat (obsessed!- runs big wearing size XS - also loving this one) // Powder Blue Sweater (similar blue sweater here & in love with this cable-knit one) // Forever 21 Denim (old similar here) // Pink Patent Heels
ACCESSORIES.
Blue Bag // Gold Chain Watch // Sunglasses // Gold Rings (40% off code: SERIOUS40)

The soft pink tones of spring and summer have now made their way into fall and winter. but designers have strayed from the typical jewel-toned and neutral palettes that used to dominate fall fashion by incorporating soft tones into their collections. By taking a few cues from their designs, we can flawlessly rock these soft, feminine colors year-round.

o   Transforming with texture: Bring your fall look together by incorporating thicker textures into your ensemble. This season is full of great pastel pieces in heavier fabrics, like this coat. To fuse a fall-vibe into softer shades with a lighter material, pair with heavier knits or other textures typical of fall. Incorporating a fall nail color is another great way to give your look an autumn feel.
o   Neutrals are always in season: You can never go wrong by pairing a pastel with a neutral. Consider staples, like nudes, camels, greys and blacks. For advanced styling, mix popular jewel tones into your outfit or bring soft tones into fall from head to toe by rocking a monochromatic look.

FALL PONCHO

DETAILS.
Poncho (size small - on sale - extra 20% off) // Navy Top (on sale - extra 20% off) // Gold Chain Watch  // Khaki Leggings // Tory Burch Boots // Rings // Sunglasses // Michael Kors Handbag

I love the classic color combination of navy, cognac, and gold. Something about the combo seems timeless and sophisticated.  I've been anxious to get a poncho for Fall. I was immediately drawn to the detailing on this one with the faux leather pockets and gold zippers on the side.

Neutral Work Wardrobe

I've had a lot of meetings the last couple weeks at my other job, so it has been a more dressy couple weeks than usual. I like to add a subtle color against the typical white, black, and navy work ensemble. These pencil skirtsare an easy way to add that detail (see the neon pink one I wore ).

I'm so excited about these white embossed pumps. I've been looking for a white pump that has a little more shizam, and the subtle texture on these is perfect. I've found one of the keys to wearing multiple pieces of white is mixing textures.

Current Obsession: EMU Australia

You've probably seen EMU Australia's ubiquitous shearling-lined boots on every college girl and snow bunny since the early '90s, however, before you categorize them as shoes for "around the house" only, might I suggest you take a minute to explore the brand's new offerings.

To commemorate its 20th anniversary, EMU has undergone a major style change. This season, it's introduced new lines of fashion boots to meet the needs of the modern woman on the go. In addition to introducing new ankle booties and leather boots, the brand has completely revamped its classic shearling boots, making them lighter and more streamlined and adding stylish detailing.

I got to see the collection up close and personal at a recent event and was impressed at the distinctly modern direction the brand has taken. Of the new styles, my favorites are the Heysen ankle bootie ($179) and the Allira wedge boot ($225). Of course, there are still ultra-cozy slippers ($69) and new waterproof versions ($149–$199) of the classic shearling boot that will resist those nasty salt and water stains you pick up each winter.

I love to see a brand successfully adjust to the times and EMU Australia is making that tough but rewarding transition.
