Weekend Looks for 3 Different Style Types

As the weekend is approaching, so are the endless options of what to wear for every occasion.  Everybody has their own style; therefore, I have dedicated today's post to outlining three different looks for these style types.  If your style type is eclectic, you can switch out the following looks as they apply to occasions or events throughout the weekend.  Enjoy!

Feminine and Trendy - This look is perfect for those who love delicate fabrics, spring floral prints, follow trends, and enjoy girlie accents.  The ideal occasion: Brunch with the ladies.  Where the items are from: F21 blouse, shorts and bracelet | ALDO heels and bag.

Effortlessly Chic - Although rocking high heels is great, sometimes a girl just wants to throw on a pair of flats too.  It could also be wearable with a pair of denim shorts, as shoulder bags accentuate the length of shorts as well.  This outfit is applicable to those who enjoy a bit more of a casual look, need something cute yet fashionable for school, or on-the-go moms.  The ideal occasion: Daytime shopping or to the local market.  Where the items are from: ZARA top | F21 distressed jeans | Vintage shoulder bag | Target flats | F21 accessories.

Bold and Edgy - For the daring, this look can make you stand out in any setting.  Pair a high-peaked shoulder top with a statement necklace, sequin shorts and colorful pumps and you are set.  The ideal occasion: Girl's night out or a late dinner date.  Where the items are from: ZARA top | ZARA necklace | Arden B earrings | Guess watch | Express shorts | Boutique pumps.

The Bow Tie

One of my new favorite accessories is this black bow tie that I scooped up from American Apparel.  As many of you may already know, I am a big fan of menswear for ladies nowadays.  I've been incorporating skinny ties, bow ties, and suspenders into my looks lately.  For today's OOTD, I paired a bow tie with a sheer collared blouse, bright pink lace shorts, a black blazer, and the infamous Steve Madden Mary Jane pumps.  Enjoy, my loves =]

What I'm wearing:
TJ Maxx blazer (great steal!)
F21 blouse
F21 shorts
American Apparel bow tie
Steve Madden pumps

Embellishments

As I've said before, I am very fond of the menswear look for women right now and I've been experimenting with different ways to rock it without losing femininity.  For today's look, I paired these sequin shorts with a white blouse, suspenders, and these Steve Madden booties that I adore.  When I'm putting together a menswear inspired look I like to incorporate male accessories but add embellishments that bring out the female side of it.  For example, sequins, rhinestones, and chiffon tops.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
F21 blouse
Express shorts
American Apparel suspenders
Steve Madden booties

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

The Red Jacket + Leopard Print

Happy Wednesday everyone!  As I mentioned in my weight loss post, I have a little baby boy now and today he's 6 months old.  It's amazing how fast time really flies by.  I feel so blessed.  For today's post, I have featured one of my go-to outfits.  I have been collecting blazers in various colors and when I need to put something together that is simple and quick, I grab one of them.  One of the essential pieces that every woman should have in her closet is a red jacket or blazer because it can be paired with a multitude of items.  In this instance, I've paired it with a leopard print top, some distressed black skinny jeans and platform booties.  This look is comfortable, yet put together.  What are some of your go-to pieces?

What I'm wearing:
F21 blazer
Arden B blouse
F21 skinny jeans
Movado watch

As you can see, the black trim from these silk pants really complements the detailing of my blouse.  These are probably the most comfortable pair of pants that I own.  They are lightweight and I love the feel of them.  Since we're having beautiful weather today, I decided to go with a look that is comfortable yet light. 

What I'm wearing:
H&M sheer blouse
Target tank top
ZARA silk pants
Guess gold watch
Forever 21 bracelet
