There are are so many ways to wear a classic white shirt and black slacks; and you can never go wrong with a black and white combination! It’s the classic that never goes out of style; and every woman needs at least one white shirt, and a pair of black pants in their closet. This classic combination can take you from work to dinner, or happy hour; and it doesn’t have to be boring.

In this post, I’m featuring two classic pieces with a stylish twist from Universal Standard.  The added silhouette-enhancing feature (black band detail) on the sides of the shirt is sophisticated and eye-catching! This shirt can be dressed up or down and it has an invisible built-in stretch, witch I appreciate, because that gives a freedom of movement. Who doesn’t appreciate that?

Now, I owned quite a few black pants and I love when I come across work pants that are not only comfortable but have a stylish twist to them… And these pants are not your average work pants. They feature a removable cuff – which have gotten a few comments and questions! Both modern and comfortable, I love that these pants are made from a mid-weight ponte material and sit nicely at the waist. And oh they also have pockets! 

For a different take on the white and black look, I added an untied bow tie (and a hat), which is an unique touch to a classic black and white look. – What are your thoughts on this outfit?

Can you actually believe that Valentines Day is just a few hours away?! To be honest with you, I don’t have any outfit planned yet for the day or for the weekend for that matter. I have been really lay back lately when it comes to Fashion, at least in my every day life.

I’m dedicating so much time to my personal growth and meditating a lot more that I feel like I need a little break from the busyness of life, the internet, and any other things that may be distracting in this very important and much needed time for me. I’m still posting on my blog and Instagram to the best of my ability, but it has been a little while since I actually did a blog photo shoot or create an in-depth content.

Well, beside the fact that I’m actually making the most out of my little internet break, here’s why I feel like I’m winning right now: This outfit was shot a few weeks ago during the holidays and I’ve never gotten to share it on the blog. What’s better than a little red (or pink) dress in lieu of a Valentines Day-inspired look, when we all know red is the color of the season?!

I stumbled upon this little number at Target during the holidays, and I thought it was cute. I styled it over my over-the-knee-boots for that haute look, and added my black fluid trench coat to keep warm, and I think the whole look was a winner… at least in my book:-)

Are you over Winter yet? I know I sure am; and this Leota print Spring dress just brought me a few weeks (or months …ughs) ahead of the current bitterly cold weather. Such a simple, chic and pretty dress.You certainly know that wrap dresses are the most comfortable and forgiving ones; and this one didn’t disappoint at all! It is also so versatile and perfect for any casual or semi-formal occasion. Spring calls for beautiful, fun, and brights colors and prints; and I can’t wait for it! What are some of your favorite Spring colors or pieces?

Happy Saturday loves!

While you will rarely catch me in sweater dresses as short as this one (or this one) in town, I think this is a cute, casual, and sexy look that you can wear for a date night with your partner or a fun girls night out; I love that this dress can double as an oversized sweater which is normally how I usually wear it. – Over a pair of jeans, or leggings with some boots or tennis. It’s probably one of the most comfortable sweater dresses I have; and I love the rich wine color and the front lace-up feature. 

Tobi has some great collections of casual and chic tops and their dress collection is so sexy! Think Valentine’s Day dinner outfit with that special person. 🙂 

I love these over-the-knee boots! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ve probably seen them before, but just in case you didn’t or you want to take a look at how I previously styled them, here are a few posts that featured them: Here, here and here .

I want to hear your thoughts about this outfit. Do you like it? Would you wear it?

Sounds off 🙂

Happy Monday beautiful people,

I hope you’re staying warm and safe out there.This midi Aztec prints dress is from L’effet Glamour’s dresses collection and is such a pretty dress. It is also available in a different color, that you may want to check out here🙂  The bold prints is sure to catch anyone’s attention, in a good way of course. The fabric is soft and stretchy and make a great form-hugging yet forgiving dress. I love the neckline and overlap detail as well. I’m actually wearing the dress here the other way around. I think the plunging V-neck (which was supposed to be the back) gives an extra dose of femininity to the dress. Isn’t it cool to know how versatile the dress is and that you can wear it both ways and still slay? I have previously styled it with classic pumps and it was as gorgeous as it is here, if I may say so myself. 😉 In this post I chose to go with these sleek white booties from Just Fab and I love the edgy yet feminine vibe it gives. Great contrast with the prints in the dress and perfect for a night out with the girls! 😉
