3 Ways To Wear A White Blazer For The Season

One of my favorite wardrobe staples is a classic white blazer, as it complements various items in my closet.  What's great about a white blazer is that it can neutralize your look and dress it up or down.  The looks that I've put together for today's post are more tailored to the spring season; however, it's completely up to you and what you have in your closet.

City Girl Chic

For this look, I've paired a striped top with some bright lace shorts to give it a feminine touch yet keep it a little structured.  Pair it with a floppy hat, some classic black heels, and throw on your white blazer to complete this city chic look which is perfect for a daytime lunch with the girls.
Playfully Elegant

This look is completely feminine, which is why I love it so much.  Although I am constantly expressing my adoration for menswear as women's attire, there is something even more powerful about a glam look designed for an elegant woman.   I've paired a tiered tutu skirt with a neutral sequin top along with some Mary-Jane bow accented heels to further enhance the girlish look.

Weekend Casual

There is no reason why any woman/mother can't run her weekend errands and still remain stylish while doing so.  Therefore, I would rock this look to run some quick errands or do some shopping in the city.  Rompers are my go-to spring and summer items because they are cute yet simple.  I've added a neutral braided belt in addition to these low chunky heels for comfort. Pair it with a rolled up white blazer and you're ready to go!

Spring Trend: Florals and Neon

To be honest, I rarely ever wore floral print until last year.  My style has transformed to a mix of feminine yet edgy chic.  Therefore, I have really embraced floral prints during the Spring and Summer seasons because they are so delicate.  I also tend to wear plenty of rompers, skirts, and shorts when it's warm out.  Rompers are not only comfortable, but they can be paired with anything from blazers to a denim vest (depending on what type of romper).  For today's look of the day, I've paired this Urban Outfitters romper with some pink neon heels.  I like the contrast of delicate prints with something a little more bold and edgy.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
Urban Outfitters romper
ALDO heels
F21 earrings
Guess watch

Look for Less: Eva Longoria

 "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." - Coco Chanel

First of all, I'd like to say Happy International Women's Day to my beautiful and ambitious ladies out there!  After my first "Look for Less" blog post, I received a lot of positive feedback and requests for another one.  Therefore, today's post features yet another one - Eva Longoria.  I love the simple and casual look with just the right pop of color and handbag choice.  For this look, I paired a sheer collared shirt with some denim skinny jeans and these bright purple platform heels by Steve Madden.  Open-toe platform heels are the perfect Spring/Summer shoe. 

For those of you who don't know, Jason Wu recently designed and launched a line for Target and everything nearly sold it immediately after it was released.  I managed to snag this two-toned handbag, which goes with everything!

What I'm wearing:
Guess gold watch
F21 blouse
ZARA skinny jeans
Steve Madden platforms
Jason Wu for Target handbag

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

Denim + Leather

I love to pair contrasting materials together, and I was very pleased with the way this look turned out.  It's such a feminine look, yet edgy at the same time...which is just my style.  To brighten it up a bit, I added a bright pink bow clutch.  This is perfect for lunch with the girls or a casual event.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
F21 top, ZARA collar, H&M skirt, Target belt, Steve Madden heels, H&M clutch

Here is a way for you to get a celebrity look for less, featuring pieces that are of the same representation but easier for you to snag!  I replicated Pippa Middleton and her casual look.  I love it because it's clean and crisp, yet so comfortable.  Let me know what you think.

F21 blazer
Gifted lace top
ZARA white pants

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 =]

Friday Favorites!

It's Friday, so you know what that means...Friday Favorites!  For this week, I've featured primarily beauty products but a few other items relating to fashion or health.  I was not compensated to promote these brands by any means.  Enjoy your weekend, guys!

This cleanser is one of my go-to face washes because it doesn't leave my skin dry at all.  I received this at a fashion show; however, it is most likely available at any of your local drug stores.
I'm a fan of Clean & Clear products (ever since my tween-age years), and this Morning Burst facial scrub is perfect for deep cleansing.  I use this about once a week.  I picked this up at CVS, but I'm sure it's available at Target or Walgreen's as well.
Urban Decay has my favorite eyeshadow primer, which some would consider an "indulgence" since it isn't really necessary when applying eyeshadow.  However, I find that it actually helps reduce the need to use more product because it acts as a glue to keeping your eye makeup on longer.  I grabbed this item at Sephora.
Lately, I have been using this bareVitamins PRIME TIME foundation primer as well.  At first I thought that the oily consistency would leave my face feeling greasy but it actually applies smoothly without any residue.  This primer helps keep foundation on throughout the whole day.  I purchase this product from Sephora as well.
I have to admit, I am a sucker for protein or nutritional bars and I love these Pure & Simple energy bars by PowerBar.  They satisfy my hunger and taste delicious too!  I buy these from Walgreen's.
Last but not least, this was one of my major splurges this week.  I owned an iPhone before and switched back to Blackberry for some time but now I've returned to the infamous iPhone and I'm loving my new toy!

It Feels Good to be a Woman!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Mine was relaxing, for the most part.  The weather was amazing so I loved every bit of it.  I wanted to start the week off with this really feminine OOTD, featuring a ZARA top with bow detailing, a flounced skirt, and a belt to cinch at the waist.  I also complemented it with my bow detailed heels.  It's nice to put on something a little girly every now and then.  Let me know what you think!
