Fri-YAY!










            Nothing screams Fri-YAY more than a pop of color and floral print. I find the simplicity of just pairing a nude-colored top, heels and bag with a vibrant colorful skirt just absolutely ravishing. Not to mention how easy it is to pair. A little side story to this skirt.. I bought it at H&M when it first arrived (for full price mind you). Of course, when I see something I know I'll regret not buying.. I have to have it. No matter the cost. It's a habit I'm trying to break. But after purchasing it I felt delighted. I already had an event in mind to wear it to and could just picture the variety of outfits I could use it to put together. Little did I know that many others (particularly in my area) were also thinking the same exact thing. I saw this skirt at least four different times within just a few months of having it. Not to mention, a very good friend of mine also had the same exact skirt. Moral of the story... don't buy things when they first arrive in stores because you'll most likely find someone else with the same exact clothing item. Okay, well maybe it's okay to purchase something when they first come out. I guess it just depends on where it is.

          Another interesting part about this outfit is that the "top" you see there is actually a dress. A little trick I love doing, especially when I can't find a matching blouse to an a-line skirt, is pair it with a fitted dress. It gives off the same look as it would with a blouse. However, I find that I receive way more compliments when I use this trick. Try it and comment below how you like it!


*Disclaimer: I am not typically one to care if others have the same items as me. In fact, I love sharing where I purchase my clothes from. I just found the story absolutely hilarious. I've never seen a clothing item of mines on so many other people before. I'm not kidding when I say floral and a pop of color makes for an eye-catching piece.

Let's Get Casual!



 Top: Loft | Jeans: H&M | Shoes: ASOS | Necklace: J CREW | Hat: Target | Jacket: Thrifted (Zara)


     So, not only did I want to throw it back a bit, but I also wanted to go a bit casual  today. I absolutely love the casualty of this outfit yet the necklace and shoes dresses it up a bit. This is a great outfit for a night out with your friends or even a special event. Unfortunately, I was not able to take a picture with the jacket on but it was a great thrifted find that I cannot pin point what season it came out.

Professional Mondays

Top: TJ Maxx | Skirt: Loft | Shoes: New Look (Asos) | Bag: Kate Spade Outlet 

Mondays are typically hard for me to even really think straight. If you're just like me and have difficulty thinking straight on those mornings, I suggest going for a simple top and skirt combo like this one. The colors are perfect for either the summer to fall transition or even spring. I don't work in an office setting, but oddly enough, I tend to lean towards a more professional look when I dress up. Here's a great example of that!

An Odd Pair?



                          Top: H&M | Blazer: H&M | Skirt: Zara | Shoes: Franco Sarto (Macy's) | Necklace: J Crew

I never thought the combination of navy blue and red would be as stunning as I find it is. This outfit began without the blazer, however because of the wind chill, I thought I'd put a blazer over it. Boy, was it a great idea! Not only does it keep me warm, but it's also very stylish and modest. PS, If you couldn't already tell, my favorite stores are H&M, Zara and J Crew, so you'll be seeing a lot of their items in my blogs. I just love not only the modesty in most of their items but also the quality as well.

Spring Time Weather!



                                   Top: TJ Maxx | Skirt: J Crew | Shoes: New Look (Asos) | Necklace: J Crew


Lately, I've been loving brighter skirts! It's almost as if they have a pattern of their own. This outfit absolutely embraces the summer time while keeping it appropriate for the spring time. I've been so surprised being able to walk out of my house with short sleeves on. It seems like just last week it was brisk, windy and cold! I'm not complaining though. I absolutely love the weather... and so does my wardrobe.

Stripe Love



                                            Top: H&M | Skirt: Zara | Bag: Kate Spade | Shoes: New Look (Asos)

You really can't go wrong with stripes! This pattern has to be my go-to pattern when I shop. Since it's warming up on the East Coast, I thought I'd share a lovely throwback of my favorite spring outfit. This chiffon blouse keeps me warm yet still cool enough when the sun shines. The nude bag is just the cherry on top! It seems like midi skirts are in trend also. I had been eyeing this skirt on Zara for a while and once it went on sale, I bought myself two of them (black and navy blue). They've been absolute keepers and a definite go-to full skirt.

Welcome





Welcome to my new blog! I hope here, you find the inspiration you need to look fashionable and modest. I myself treasure the importance of tasteful fashion that is not too revealing yet still appealing. For my first outfit, the look is much more casual (which you will barely see on my blog in upcoming posts). However, I loved the pairing of the light wash jeans and the black and white striped turtle neck. Not only was it super comfortable, it was also super cute! To top it off, I accessorized a bit.
