It’s always fun and unexpected to combine athletic or casual pieces with more dressier items; giving the overall outfit much more interest.

I’m not a sweatshirt wearing type of girl but I’ve really been loving the new pieces from Ivy Park so I paired it with a more dressier item – the wide leg trouser – to make it more my style.

Until next time…invoke inspiration with your style

Metallic is currently on trend with the shiny colors being incorporated in all our favorite clothes and shoes.

I love gold so obviously when I spotted these shiny metallic beauties I instantly scooped them up.

Although the shoes are gold they work just like any other neutral shoe. Meaning, it can easily replace your brown or black shoes that you were thinking about wearing with your outfit but instead opt for something with an extra flair – gold.

How so?

The shoes are subtle enough that it mesh with your outfit but stands out just enough to make a statement.

BOOM!

Winter white is a term that was created to justify wearing white waaaaaay past labor day.

Gone are the days when people packed away their starch whites and placed them in hibernation until the coming of next Spring.

“the art of slouch”

The formula to a great sweater is all in the slouch. You have to find the perfect balance between slouch and form, not to loose to where it looks sloppy but just enough form to give shape, yet slouchy enough to give off an heir of “cool vibes” and comfort.

I know what your probably thinking, “is all this really necessary, it’s just a sweater?”

My answer to you….YES!

You may not even realize it or even want to admit it to yourself but the fit of your sweater does determine your purchase and favoritism. Why do you think people love Free People and Urban Outfitters sweaters so much because they mastered the art of slouch. Eh Duh!
