Party Pants {Zara Wide-Leg Culottes}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

{J. CREW Bodysuit (similar), ZARA Wide-Leg Culottes (similar here and here), SALVATORE FERRAGAMO Sunglasses, H&M Tassel Earrings, CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL Tote, MICHAEL KORS Jelly Sandals (similar here and here)}

Who knew that wide-leg culottes would turn out to be my holy grail pants of 2017?

But for real, if you’ve been hanging around my blog for any length of time it’s no secret that I definitely have a preference for skirts and dresses over trousers. But that all changed when I discovered these amazing culottes from Zara. Not gonna lie, they definitely gave me pause when I first saw them in store. But I tentatively took a pair into the fitting room, and ‘lo and behold – I was pleasantly surprised. Now they’re my favorite traveling pants.

About the Fit:
Pants can be tricky for me due to my larger thighs, but these are oh-so-comfy and extremely forgiving. I sized up to amp up the flowy-factor, but your normal size should work just fine if you prefer a more streamlined silhouette and/or have slim hips and thighs. This bodysuit from J. Crew is pretty comfy but beware the thin material – especially if you have a large bust. It tends to stretch out and become see-through. For me, a size up and a black padded bra did the trick!

2017 Fall Fashion Trend: Pearls!

Fashion, Picks

Fall 2017 Fashion Trend: Pearl Embellishments{H&M Pearl Earrings, ZARA Pearl Embellished Top & Shoes, C. Wonder Multi-Strand Pearl Necklace (I also own this similar one from J. Crew and LOVE it)}

Earlier this year, I made a video on how to elevate your wardrobe and make any outfit instantly appear more luxurious with a few simple style hacks. One of the tips I shared was to add a strand (or three or four!) of pearls. It’s a styling trick that’s served me well over the years, and I’m so happy that pearls are finally having their moment in the sun on a larger scale this season. It seems that every major retailer has found a way to incorporate pearls, and I’m absolutely loving it. And the best part is that they’re popping up in unexpected ways that feel young, fresh, and dare I say… cool?!

If you haven’t gotten the memo before now, pearls are definitely a huge fall fashion trend. Below are some pretty pearly pieces (try and say that three times fast!) that I’ve got my eye on this season… and so should you!

Seeing Stripes {Asos Striped Party Dress}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Asos Striped Party Dress {ASOS Striped Party Dress, PRADA Sunglasses, H&M Earrings, ALDO Glitter Clutch, J. CREW Glitter Heels (similar)}

All dressed up, and no place to go… yet!

But with a dress this fun and colorful, can you really blame me?! One of my fashion rules of thumb is that if I run across a fabulous dress, I get it even if I don’t have a particular event to wear it to right away. Because let’s face it, the worst time to shop is when you’re under a deadline. This school of thought has served me well over the years, and I’m rarely ever pressed for what to wear for special occasions anymore.

About the Fit:
This one runs true to size, and the fit and flare shape makes it flattering on a variety of silhouettes. Tea length dresses can be tricky, but this one works on my 5’7″ frame. If you’re petite, you may have to get it hemmed unless you prefer to wear it as a floor length gown. The bottom is very poufy thanks to a few layers of tulle – perfect for twirling the night away with someone special!
