Spring Is Here!

It’s officially spring!  I wanted to share a quick post of this fabulous dress I purchased from H&M.  It was such a great find for only $30 and the perfect look for brunch with your girlfriends.  The ruffles at the bottom added a little something special to it!

I paired the dress with a satin headband (which I love a good headband!) from H&M and white pumps from Zara.  I added a little jacket from Zara as a little touch.  It matched perfectly with my headband.  🙂

For the Girl Who Loves Black & White!

My favorite color combo is black and white!  It screams elegance, class and sophistication.  It doesn’t matter what season it is, for some of us – we would wear this color combo everyday.  This post is for the girl that enjoys this color combination!

Leather. Bag. Perfection.

A few months ago, leather bag company Mahi Leather reached out to do a post about one of their leather bags of my choice.  I was really excited because I’ve never heard of the company and I’m always looking for a great “everyday” bag.

With that said, I was impressed by the leather quality of the bag.  I wanted to wear the bag for a few months prior to doing a post to really understand the quality of the tote.  The leather is durable, I carry it almost everyday and it compliments any outfit that I’m wearing.

I personally selected The Classic Tote in vintage brown.  The bag is priced at $131.32 – I think it’s an affordable price for a bag that you will wear everyday but it’s depends on your personal budget.

Overall, I’m extremely satisfied with my beautiful tote. Mahi Leather has so many different bag options – totes, duffles, satchels and more!  Check out the website!

What’s the Perfect Working Bag?

Like most women, I’m constantly balancing work, gym, hobbies and so many other things we have going.  I always find myself looking for the perfect go to bag to help balance everything.

Black leather bags have always been my favorite and I see most many women carry them as well. I started to think why leather? Well, it’s durable, timeless and most importantly can be carried on a day to day without ruining the quality!  With so many styles and variations, a nice leather bag can complete your outfit and give so much confidence.  My personal favorite is the classic tote.

For the past month, I’ve carried this black  Women’s Work Tote Handbag by Merona from Target which I absolutely love.  It’s big enough to fit my laptop which is my favorite but I can also carry my makeup case and a pair of flats for those long days!  🙂

Any suggestions Ladies?  What are the Best Tote Bags for work?

All Black Look! ♠️

Black is by far my most favorite color to wear. Something about it makes me feel empowered. 

I fell in love with faux leather dress from Zara. It was only $30 on sale and so comfortable. This dress is so versatile and can be styled in many ways – casual or more of a dressed up look. I decided to pair it with my over the knee boots from Aldo’s Shoes. 

This look is flattering, chic and effortless. Ladies, you can’t go wrong with an all black look!

The Leather Mini! 

The beauty of the leather mini skirt is versatility.  With so many ranges of colors and styles you have lots of options with this closet staple.   This look can be dressed a bit casual or dressed up – whichever you prefer, you can’t go wrong! 😉  

You can add a pair of flats for a more casual look or a nice pair of heels for a more dressed up look.  I chose to pair this mustard yellow Zara leather mini skirt with a blouse and a pair of booties.   This look was super affordable – faux leather skirt is priced at $29 currently on Zara.com.

A Little Polka Dotty….👙

Polka dots are one of the most versatile trends. They can be very fun with a retro look on a dress or matched with another print for a “mixed prints” look. 

The key to wearing polka dots without looking like a child is fairly simple…
1.  Wear polka dot prints thatnare fairly small. 
2.  Make sure your look is modern by pairing your polka dots with jeans, leather skirt or a blazer. 

H&M and ASOS has some really great polka dot shirts!  All under $40.  
Check out my modern polka dot look below! 

Outfit Details:

Jacket | H&M: Under $40 

Shirt | H&M: Under $20 

Jeans | Armani Exchange:  Under $60 (sale item)

Must Haves For An Edgy Look! 

Depending on my mood, sometimes I want to be a little edgy/rock Chic. It gives me a sense of freedom and makes me feel like somewhat of a badass. (LoL). 

I believe there’s a few essential items needed in order to achieve the “edgy” look. Check out my four items below!!! 

1.  Black or Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans – must fit at the ankle 

2.  Boots – I prefer just above the ankle but not so much at the knee. DSW has great selections. 

3. Leather Jacket – Must be cropped. I found the perfect Leather Moto Jacket from Zara for just under $50. Forever21 also has great options for under $50 as well. 

4. Sunglasses – My personal choice are aviators. I love RayBans! Overstock.com and Nordstrom Rack has great deals for under $120. If you’re not looking to spend that amount…Walmart, Target and Urban Outfitters typically have a great selection as well. 

There you have it ladies! Take a look below of my rocker/ edgy Chic outfit below. 

Outfit Details:  

1. Moto Jacket | Zara: Under $50 

2.  Graphic Sweatshirt | Forever21: Under $20 

3. Jeans | UrbanOutfitters: Under $40 

4. Boots | Steve Madden by way of DSW: Under $50
