The Skirt Trick






Oddly enough, I'm sitting at my laptop, with a pile full of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Speculoos Cookie Butter Cups as I blog my life away at 1:04 A.M.  Obviously, what else would one be doing at such a time?  Cyber family - I have come to a realization that I failed to post anything in almost a week, which is highly unlike me.  Although I would like to place the blame on my presence at home, visiting family.  Yes, that sounds like a good excuse.  I've also taken on the role of posting a new video every day of December on my video channel, which seemingly takes up more time than expected when I initially had this grand idea in my head.  Nonetheless, I like to stick to my word so I shall push forward.

As I sit in the 40 degree weather, enjoying the 10 degree increase since the past week, I recall this look that I shot back in Miami prior to traveling up here.  If you grew up in the 90's, this dandy little wonder called a skort, was all the rage.  What could possibly be better than a skirt that ultimately remains shorts?  This skirt trick has a sexy edge without looking ridiculously crazy.  

What I'm rocking:

Top by ZARA
Blazer by Macy's
Skort by EXPRESS
Shoes by Me Too
Bracelet by Kate Spade ℅ Nordstrom
Hat ℅ ASOS
Sunglasses ℅ Italia Independent

Neon Silk and Metallic Accents

What else would I be doing at 11:30pm on a Tuesday night than posting my blog of the day?  For today's OOTD I paired this gem of a top with some sequin shorts and metallic accents.  Combining neon with metallic accents can really make your look pop, or if you aren't as daring you can always choose your preference to add to your look to complete it.  For example, pairing a simple bright top with a neutral maxi skirt can go well with a skinny metallic belt and heels.  Whichever way you choose to dress it up or down, it can ultimately look amazing together.  XOXO.

What I'm wearing:
Cotton On blouse
Express shorts
ALDO clutch
Anne Klein watch
F21 earrings
China Glaze nail polish
ESSIE nail polish

The Skinny Tie

One of my favorite trends right now is menswear for women.  However you prefer to style it, it can add a bit of structure or power to your look.  For this look, I paired a tuxedo jacket with a collared blouse, a lace skinny tie, and sequin pants.  I've also acquired quite the craving for these loafer heels as well.  They add a feminine touch to a masculine shoe.  What do you guys think about menswear for ladies?

What I'm wearing:
Vintage tuxedo blazer
F21 blouse
F21 skinny tie
Arden B pants
Hautelook (Me Too) heels

Remixed Leather

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.  So start believing in yourself!"

It's motivational Monday and I just wanted to start off the week with one of my favorite quotes.  I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!  I've been a little sick lately, along with my baby Taejin.  However, I had a relaxing weekend.  For today's OOTD, I've put together a mix of a very feminine look combined with a leather jacket and black booties to add a bit of an edge to it.  It gives a unique approach to your average feminine outfit.  Enjoy =]
