W I D E

So I'm in the market for some super flare or bell bottoms jeans. I'm not sure what they are calling them these days, but they look something like THESE.



Unfortunately every pair I've tried on have been A) too expensive for something so trendy and/or B) too long and I don't know about altering something like that. If anyone knows where I can get some flare bell bottoms please let me know. In the meantime, I have put my wide leg trouser jeans back in rotation and paired it with everything from striped shirts to oversized sweaters. 

WEARING: zara shirt, joes wide leg jeans, nine west pumps, f21 necklace, david yurman rings, target sunnies
WORN TO: church

CYBER MONDAY FUNDAY

Happy Cyber Monday! I went into Bloomingdales on Saturday in anticipation of Cyber Monday...trying stuff on and figuring out what I wanted to purchase online. As soon as I put this dress on I loved it, I think. I started to question if the ruffles made it too girly or too old lady so I took to IG for advice and folks overwhelmingly convinced me to pull the trigger this morning! What do you think? 


PS if you're in between sizes, you might want to go with the larger size.

ESHAKTI CHIC

I've been browsing online and in stores and nothing is really getting me excited. Anyone else feel this way? Everything kind of looks the same, and other than bomber jackets and sneakers I'm not really excited about any trends I'm seeing. 
With all the holiday festivities coming up I'm so happy for unique online boutiques like eShakti that get me inspired and excited about dressing up. 

I LOVE this dress! Love it! And I got so many compliments when I wore it to an event at one of my favorite restaurants a couple of weeks ago. The color is perfect for this time of year and because eShakti 
lets you customize for your body and change the neckline, hemline and sleeve type, the fit is always perfect! 

I have a couple of more dressy to very dressy occasions coming up and I'm eyeing these beauties: 

Because eShakti items are so unique, they don't stay around for long and unfortnetly my dress has sold out, but you can shop all DRESSES HERE

NOPE

Don’t you love when you can make a statement with what you choose to wear?


Nope to racism.
Nope to bullying.
Nope to misogyny.
Nope to xenophobia.
Nope to homophobia.


 I pray that the president elect continues to shock us and turns out to be a different person than he’s portrayed himself to be since — basically forever. There is so much anger/fear/hate out there, and trust me I get it, but I am choosing to be cautiously optimistic un-pessimistic. And if things turn out to be as disastrous as many are predicting, hopefully half of the country will learn a lesson about electing a person who the other half of us said NOPE to.

WEARING: shirt from AMAZON, zara blazer (SIMILAR FOR $22), gap jeans, dolce vita heels (GREAT OPTION)

PINK OCTOBER

I was supposed to post this pink dress during Breast Cancer Awareness month and time just got away from me. However, for a disease that affects 1 in 8 women in the U.S., one month of "awareness" is not enough. So today it's about Pink October, November, December...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS?

Between the metallic bow pumps, the sparkles on the bag and the bejeweled top (not to mention the mode I'm in at work), I wanted to start this post with "Happy Holidays!". Too early right? I guess I'll wait until after Halloween and say Happy Monday instead :) 


And for those of you who think my white jeans make this look un-festive, you are obviously not from California where we wear open toe shoes and white year-round. 

WEARING: banana republic top, old navy blouse, gap jeans, mojo moxy heels

THE BOMBER

When were bomber jackets first in style? When did they come back in style? Did they ever really go out of style? It seems like all of a sudden bomber jackets are all the rage, however when I think about fashion and how it's evolved it seems like they were always around in some capacity. I remember having a leather bomber about 7+ years ago, and they were part of my school uniform way back in the day, so I guess I've always been into them, but they feel different this time. They come in prints, and fun colors, lighter materials and I've bought 3 in the last month. I don't have a problem though :)

WEARING: FLORAL BOMBER JACKET ONLY $25, banana republic grey jeans (SIMILAR FOR $68),dsw cluth & sandals (CUTE OPTION)

BORROWED FROM THE BOYS

When PILOTMAN reached out to me about partnering with them, I will admit I was a bit confused after I went on their Amazon store and saw they only carry ties. I've never worn a tie before, and I don't review products I don't use/wear, but I do love all things menswear inspired so I decided to go for it!
And I'm glad I did because I love the TIE (which is 100% silk and only $14.99) and the whole look! The colors are so rich and vibrant and they would add a nice pop to any suit, button down or however you chose to wear it. Just look at the difference the tie makes between the picture above and below! 
For you ladies worried about a men's tie being too thick or too long, try it with a buttoned up menswear vest or paired with a button down and worn on the inside of a crew neck sweater. That way, not all of the tie is exposed. 
Happy Tie(ing)!

WEARING: PILOTMAN PAISLEY SILK TIE, gap sweater & vest (SIMILAR), american eagle button down (SIMILAR), old navy skirt (SPLURGE), aldo shoe (SIMILAR), david yurman rings and bracelet, michael kors watch
WORN: on #sundayfunday
