Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, ya’ll! *clinks mimosa glasses πŸ₯‚

So we’ve all had those mornings where we’re running – nonstop – to do the hair, sweep on some makeup & toss on an above-average outfit for the day. This is often a challenge, especially when you’re racing the clock, & oftentimes traffic, e.g. every Monday morning…

No matter your style, budget or profession, with the right set of wardrobe skills there’s no reason to not look your best & slay the day away!

Read a few quick & simple tips below:

A black everything. β¬›οΈ

I feel like I say this in most of my posts, but black is a closet staple. It’s always a safe bet (no matter the dress code) & it’s tough to mess it up. Pair an all black outfit with a statement necklace & you’re golden!

Wardrobe staples are key.

Keep your favorite tops, sweaters and jeans on rotation. Creating a “uniform” of sorts will save time & money. Seriously.

Offset makeup from outfit.

Don’t pair dramatic makeup with an over-the-top outfit, as it screams “it took me hours to get ready.” If you wear bold makeup, pair it with a more classic and simple look. I recommend checking out Tarte’s products, especially the Tartiest Matte Lip Paint! πŸ’„

Fashion trend: half-tuck.

A little fur in my step!

Hey, ya’ll! Happy 2016 (officially!) I hope you rang in the new year right with beautiful people, delicious eats & champagne. 

One clothing piece that’s made a statement and grown in popularity in the fashion world more recently is the fur vest (I’m sure PETA loves these)… There’s countless variations from lengths to color shades, and they add just the right amount of flare and sass to a curated outfit. Black is the simplest and most classic color to pair with fur vests. 

Fur is a girl’s best friend
 
  
For my family’s extended Christmas gathering yesterday, I paired a fur vest with a basic black long-sleeve tshirt, thicker legging-pants, leopard print flats for a hint of pattern and a varying-shaded statement necklace. Side note: I’ve recently started wearing a violet lipstick by Revlon that I adore! It looks gorgeous with auburn hair and fits right in with the deep, warm shades of the winter season. 

Do you have a fur vest or other statement item you love showing off for certain occasions? Let’s hear!!

Until next time, Xx
