Street Edge

Street style is one of the main components of fashion that I admire. The ability to see all different styles and takes on a piece of clothing is amazing and never gets old. I would hope my viewers would think that the outfits I demonstrate on my blog are street style worthy. Today, especially, I wanted to have that cool street style with an edge.

I chose to photograph, as seen in the image, in an alleyway with the layers of brick behind me! (I thought it really pushed the idea of the street style vibe I wanted!) Anyway, I am wearing a black and red checkered flannel, tucked into the top of my denim. My pants are black, almost leather denim. The pant is smooth like denim, but shines like a leather. They are so cool! I paired it with my favorite nude, studded Sam Edelman flats and a simple black tote bag.

This look is perfect for the recent fall weather! The pants are an awesome way to add that edge to your style, and the flannel makes the look comfortable and easy! Pairing a more elegant looking blouse will dress the look up, so feel free to make it your own!

Try to incorporate different looks into your street style and develop something that is your own! As long as you wear it with confidence, then the rest will take care of itself.

Navy with maybe a little lace…

With changes fast approaching in my life, I look to my love of fashion and style to remain constant in my life. It is the one thing that I will always love and will never change. It will only grow… My blog has been a great achievement, and as I look back on this year and others, I am glad to have such a positive outlet for expressing my desire to dress chic and be confident! In fact, I thought my dress in this post was quite fitting for the title of my blog. It’s navy with maybe a little lace…

I am wearing a simple white and navy blue dress with pattern detailing in the occasional stripe on the dress. The pattern and colors reminds me of a very nautical setting. Not pictured are my shoes, which were a plain sandal. I also paired my new Fossil gold watch with a peach face. My hair was waved and pulled back on the side and my makeup was simple with hints of copper.

This dress it a perfect summer classic and easy for those hot nights on the boat, or cool days shopping on the coast! Pair it with heals or flats and a bright clutch, and you are good to go!

I will be shooting more fashion posts in the next couple of days! Bear with me! They will be up shortly!

Red Lips and a Little Edge…

I love experimenting with style. One moment I’ll be popping a collar on my blouse, and the next I’ll be sporting a leather skirt with studs. There really are endless possibilities. My favorite look right now would have to be the all black look. My wonderful friend Easton and I share this love of a simple, yet classic color that makes everyone look good. There’s just something about wearing gorgeous black pieces with a pop of color simply on your lips that makes any girl look glamorous, and as though they shouldn’t be messed with!

I am wearing my favorite high waisted black trousers. These are perfect for work or going out with the girls. They have an elastic waist, which can be tightened with a drawstring and have zipper pockets on the side. I paired these with my favorite Astr top. It is short sleeve with a beautiful jeweled neckline. You don’t even have to worry about jewelry with this one! It also buttons up the back, which adds a classic touch to the modern piece. I layered on my leather jacket over to keep warm and threw on some adorable leather flats. To finish it off, I put on some classy ruby red lipstick, and a pair of aviators.

This is the look to have right now!Black on black is the easiest way to achieve perfection without have to match patterns and colors. The top is especially my favorite because of the jeweled neckline. It adds a touch of glamour to the entire look without having to layer pieces of jewelry.

Try the look! You’ll be surprised at how one color can change everything!
