A closet fully equipped with basics is key, specifically referring to tops. As a fundamental piece to every outfit, owning a handful of quality, solid tops is essential. (more…)
Embracing change, whether physical, mental, or emotional, has been a new practice for me in which for once I am enjoying. In case you were wondering, I recently had a few inches of hair chopped off, and something about recent gray, gloomy days and shorter hair that are inspiring me to live freely.
You guys know neutrals are my thing; however, there’s one in particular that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. I am referring to navy. Whether a rich blue or more on the opaque side, navy is a color that represents sophistication. One that looks stunning on every skin tone day or night. Recently I was contacted by Les&Mich, an online boutique that offers a high quality assortment of clothing (including plus size), accessories, and jewelry within an affordable price range (who doesn’t want that?). They were kind enough to send me an item from their curvy collection along with a beautiful, dainty open cuff bracelet.
Gloomy days and constant use of neutrals = me during Fall. I absolutely love wearing neutral pieces that compliment one another while accessorizing with pops of color. Living in Miami has prepared me for any crazy weather conditions. That’s when my good ol’ peacoat comes in handy, it provides great rain/breeze coverage and is light enough to layer over a long sleeve.
I find that leggings are the most comfortable to wear during rainy days like these (who am I kidding, they’re awesome period!). A pair of rain boots would be a great option but I prefer a little edge and heel ;). So of course I’d pick these black booties from Target I’m still obsessing over. Neutral makeup is my go-to right now; however, I can’t pass up wearing a red lip like MAC’s “Dubonnet”. A Fall must-have!
