OOTD: Mixing Neon with Neutrals

I actually shot this outfit of the day a little while ago, but never really posted it on my blog (which is why my hair looks different in these photos)!  For this look I simply paired some liquid leggings with a loose fitting sheer blouse and a nude blazer.  To complement the neutral tones, I rocked this look with these bright neon pumps to bring it all together.  This is ideal for a night out with the girls or even a casual business meeting, depending on what type of job you may have or how flexible the work attire is.

What I'm wearing:
F21 blazer
F21 blouse
Express leggings
ALDO pumps
Guess watch

Neon Pants NOIR

As many of you know, I have fully embraced the neon trend for this season.  One of my favorite ways to style a neon piece is to pair it with neutral accents.  For today's OOTD, I paired these neon casual pants with a graphic tee that shows a peek of midriff.  To add a bit more of color, I wore a pink lip and neon pink bangles.

What I'm wearing:
ZARA top and pants
F21 bangles
Movado watch
Steve Madden heels
Jason Wu by Target hangbag

DIY: French Tip Heels

Have any of you seen one of the latest trends - french tip heels?  I am in love with the appearance of them, but not so much with the cost!  If you're like me and you don't feel like dropping $200 for french tip heels, then this DIY is perfect for you.  I stopped by my local craft store (Michael's) and picked up the following items:

1 bottle of acrylic paint (color of choice)
1 can of acrylic protective spray
Painter's tape


Grab any pair of high heels that you would like to "make over" with a french tip look.

Create a cap at the tip of your heels using painter's tape to outline, and firmly press along the edges to secure the lining.

Using a small paint brush, carefully paint a few coats of acrylic paint within the outlined area of your shoes.  Let it dry for 25 minutes.

Spray a thin layer of acrylic protective spray over the french tip.

It only cost me about $15 to complete these beauties.  I love the chic look that they give these shoes!

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

Friday Favorites: Spring Shoes

Happy Friday!!  For this week's Friday Favorites, I would like to showcase my favorite shoes for this upcoming season.  I'm estimating that the following shoe styles will be very prevalent in my Spring blog posts.  Check them out, and let me know what you think!

1) Platform heels - I love the chunky platform open-toe heels because they are great for warm weather and shorts/skirts.

2) Pumps - These brightly colored pumps are the perfect addition to any outfit for the Spring.

3) Accented Mary Jane Heels - The femininity of these heels bring out the delicacy of the upcoming season, and nude shoes go with everything!

4) Wood-bottom heels - These are the ultimate daytime shoe because they give you the right amount of height and color, yet remain casual at the same time.

5) Chunky, low heels - I like to throw these on when I'm running daytime errands and they go great with floral prints or shorts as well.

Floral

My inspiration for this outfit derived from the latest issue of Vogue, where a woman was wearing a delicate lace top layered with a denim jacket and floral printed bottoms.  I tend to gravitate to magazines when I am looking for fashion inspiration.  I added a few accessories as my personal touch, along with a color-blocked daytime clutch and brown chunky heels.  These heels are the ideal daytime heel because they are so comfortable.

What I'm wearing:
F21 denim top
ZARA top
F21 shorts
Express sunglasses
Guess watch
Steve Madden clutch

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
