Surrounded By Beauty ( My 5 Favorite Black Floral Print Midi Skirts)

Image
Hello, lovelies!  I hope you are enjoying the warm sunny weather. Summer is my favorite time of year because everything is in full bloom and we are surrounded by the beauty of nature. So when I came across this beautiful image of a woman surrounded by flora in peaceful serenity I was inspired. I liked how the beautiful foliage was contrasted by the black cloth that adorned her head. I wanted to find a way to translate the beauty of the image into fashion which I did in today's outfit of the day. I figured the easiest way to pull off black and floral prints would be in small doses and I thought the perfect way to do this is by rocking a black skirt with floral prints. In particular midi skirts. At first, I was going to include all lengths but felt that the most relatable length was not too short or too long. Plus. I'm digging the chic and vintage vibe of a midi skirt and when you add a beautiful floral print it is perfection.

Start Your Summer Off Right With Karen Zambos (My 10 Favorite Finds)

Image
I like to rock color and prints for summer and that's why I adore the brand Karen Zambos. She has a knack for creating effortless and chic clothing that you can slip into with style. Karen who is originally from Chicago moved to Los Angeles to be an in-house stylist and buyer for a high-end boutique. She eventually ventured out on her own and started her fashion brand in 1999. Her line has evolved over the years showcasing diverse, modern, and sophisticated pieces. I'm digging everything from her pretty dresses, tops, and fantastically tailored jumpsuits.








Nesh NYC Athleisure Chic ( My 10 Favorite Finds)

Image
With our chaotic lifestyles, most of us are looking for clothes that are fashionable and practical. Basically, clothes that will move with us and not restrict our movements. Clothes that are functional but put together while we juggle our daily errands and workouts. That is after all how the athleisure trend started and Nesh NYC has designed clothes that fit all of the criteria.  Designer Bree Chambers moved from Iowa to NYC to study fashion design at Parsons School of Design. She has always had a passion for yoga and while living in NYC Bree decided to further her practice by taking a yoga teacher training class and that is when she came up with the idea for an athleisure brand that would later become Nesh NYC. She wanted a line that would allow a woman to be on the go while looking and feeling amazing. The best part is that she produces and manufactures her goods in the USA. So you can feel good about buying locally sourced items.








My 8 Favorite Fringe Bags For Summer

Image
In my previous post I showcased some of my favorite fringe tops for summer and today I am going to present a few of my favorite fringe bags for the season. When it comes to fringe most people either love it or hate it. I have never met a person that was truly ambivalent towards the adornment. Maybe because it makes such a statement when worn people automatically have a visceral response towards it. Personally, I love the trend as long as it doesn't veer into costume territory but a few small doses rightly placed delights me. What I like about fringe bags is that it allows you to indulge in the trend in small doses so, if you are hesitant to rock the look on your clothes you can try carrying a fringe bag for the perfect finishing touch.

My 7 Favorite Fringe Tops For Summer

Image
With the temperatures rising now is the perfect time to rock a flirty fringe top. I have always adored fringe because of its movement and how it always adds an extra special touch to an ensemble. I especially love a fringe top because it allows you to dabble in the trend without going overboard. So need to be shy go ahead and try one on and I swear you will love it just as much as I do.
* STYLE TIP
Fringe will accentuate and draw the eye to the areas it is attached to. For example, if you have nice shoulders wearing fringe in that area will highlight them. Always make sure that the placement of the fringe is in an area that you do not mind showing off.
