Quilted Florals

IMG_0509 (2)

Quilting is not just found on classic Chanel handbags anymore. The trendy texture is on everything this fall, from leggings and skirts to leather jackets and cardigans. This quilted crop top initially caught my eye because of the gray floral pattern with a hint of pink, but the final selling point was the fun, feminine texture.

I love the juxtaposition of a feminine item paired with something edgy, so I balanced out the girly top with a leather skirt and caged sandals. To accessorize, I added some simple studs and basic black purse.

Hot Pink and Happy

IMG_0666

A simple, hot pink piece is an easy way to brighten up any outfit. I love this chiffon tee because of its versatility it can be dressed up with a black skirt and heels or worn casually with denim and flats. For a laid back look, I paired it with my go-to jeans, patterned flats and a geometric statement necklace.

Hot pink is a fun color to play with because it can be adapted to fit a variety of personal styles. Pairing this top with leather leggings and strappy stilettos creates a sleek, sexy look with some edge. On the other side of the spectrum, wearing this hue with a stylish skater skirt and delicate sandals yields a more feminine ensemble. No matter what your clothing personality is, there is always room for this bright color in your closet!

One of my favorite finds at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is this mixed metal necklace. I’m a sucker for statement necklaces and loved the edgy, yet feminine look of this stand-out accessory. The pastel stones soften the heavy-metal look of the chain links, creating a modern necklace that can instantly glam up an outfit.

I wanted the mixed-media necklace to be the focus of my ensemble, so I paired it with a simple white tee. Staying with the edgy look, I finished the outfit with a leather skirt and lace-up booties. It’s a great feeling when you piece together an outfit that makes you feel confident and that is exactly what this outfit did for me.

Spring Fashion Trend: D’Orsay Flats

flats 2 v2

Here comes the sun! With temperatures reaching 80 degrees in Vegas, it’s time to dive into spring fashion. D’Orsay flats are one of my favorite trends this season. These BC flats from Nordstrom add a fun pop of color to any outfit. They easily dress up distressed jeans and would compliment the popular boyfriend style since they add a sexy, feminine touch. I paired them with a simple, neutral-toned outfit so that they would be the focus of the ensemble. I’m also excited to wear them with my coral, Aztec-print skirt to create a fun, colorful look.

Spring has sprung! I’m loving the styles this season. It’s nice to live in a city where the sun already shines and winter clothes are packed away. Here is what I’m excited to shop for:
  1. Floral statement necklace. Add a pop of spring to your wardrobe with this flower power accessory from Wet Seal.
  2. Structured, studded tote. This Valentino tote, priced at $2,000, is just a little out of my price range… but studs are here to stay! Hopefully it’s not too hard to find a knockoff?
  3. Distressed boyfriend jeans. This casual, comfortable pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans can be dressed up or dressed down. Pair them with a feminine top, stylish accessories and sexy heels to balance out the tomboy denim.
  4. Hot pink crop top. From girly to edgy, this Topshop tank from Nordstrom is very versatile and can work with all personal styles. Plus, the cutouts in the back are so fun and unexpected!
  5. Strappy, black heels. With the open toe and look of a bootie, these Michael Kors heels are right on trend.

I’m obsessed with everything burgundy or oxblood this season – especially my new skater skirt form an adorable boutique in Las Vegas. For a holiday gathering with my family in Seattle, I added seasonal layers to keep warm in the chilly winter weather. The faux fur scarf creates a luxe look and is so cozy! Complete the simple style with patterned tights and fringed booties for a trendier vibe.

Christmas in July… AKA Nordstrom Sale

Yes, I am talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I was born a Nordies girl. Every summer my mom would hire a babysitter on that first Friday of the sale and come back with matching leggings and turtlenecks for my younger sister and I (typical ’90s fashion… so stylish). Once I was old enough to go by myself I loved to hit up opening day. With the excitement of new clothes for a new season and crowds of shoppers that are equally as eager, it’s impossible not to get into the spirit of the sale.

This pair of Halogen heels is my prized possession this year. I love that they look like booties and can be dressed up or down. They are really comfortable, too! I broke them in while working a restaurant grand opening, which might not have been a bright idea. However, after being on my feet for 6 hours I was still able to stand and even wore them again the next day.

I paired the heels with cuffed skinny jeans and a peplum top for a casual, yet trendy look. Can’t forget the studded bracelet, too!
