A Summer Wonderland

Some are saying that the all-white look is the new all-black… Coming from someone who wears black like it’s a religion, I don’t know if I’ll be jumping on that bandwagon. But, I do enjoy throwing in an all-white look every now and then. With the sun shining on a beautiful summer day, there’s just something about an all-white look that is truly stunning. It creates a glow and look of ease, which is basically what every woman wants to conquer with summer style. What’s so great about this look is the simplicity behind it. Every woman owns at least one white bottom and most likely an endless abundance of white tops. Styling it almost becomes a no brainer. Now’s the time to give this look a try before the return of earthy tones and Pumpkin Spice lattes.

Rocksbox Jewelry

When it comes to fashion, every detail counts. Each small element of an outfit make the overall appearance. That’s exactly why accessories are such a crucial addition to every wardrobe. We all have our usual go-to pieces, but Rocksbox is here to help you spice them up. By adding personal preferences, a stylist curates a set of jewelry picked just for you. It gives customers a chance to try out fabulous designer pieces with the option to buy or send them back when you’re done!

To me, jewelry is all about making a statement. I love pieces that are bold and really add to an outfit. “Arm candy” is one of my favorite jewelry trends. You can easily mix higher end pieces with everyday jewelry to create the perfect look. I styled my beautiful House of Harlow cuff with simple bracelets from Forever 21 and statement watch from Charming Charlie’s. I kept the chunky, gold theme consistent throughout by adding an bib necklace from Akira.

The Beauty of Layering

I think everyone can agree that the best part of fall fashion is layering. The weather can range from chilly, grey mornings to summer like afternoons all in one day. The best solution to this: lots of layers. I love this outfit, because it keeps the eye’s attention as the colors and fabrics blend together to create a whole look. I started with the black and white striped skort and added the draped white top to complement the asymmetrical cut. To add a pop of fall color, I layered a burgundy leather jacket perfect for fall mornings. Try an outfit like this for long day on campus or spending time exploring the city!

Finally, Fall

It’s finally just about my favorite time of the year again: fall. The season of perfect fashion, mild weather, beautiful scenery, and tasty treats; what could possibly be better?Burgundy and black practically take up my entire wardrobe, so there’s nothing more fitting than to create an outfit around those for my first post of the season.  I couldn’t wait to bring out my favorite leather heeled boots for this season. I accessorized them with burgundy knee highs to accentuate the red in the cropped flannel. Since the sun is usually still quite warm around this time, I kept a more summery silhouette but used fabrics that best represent the upcoming season. There’s nothing more perfect than head to toe leather and flannel to welcome back fall.

Patterned Pants

Whether they’re harem, palazzo, or a printed skinny, it seems as though the statement pant is here to stay. What start as a questionable trend has turned into a staple for almost every girl. Sure, jeans and black leggings are super easy to match; but every now and then, everyones’ wardrobe needs a bit of a splash. Patterned pants are honestly easier to style than they may seem. I recommend using a neutral or complementary color to the pattern and a contrasting silhouette (adding more volume on bottom & keeping it simple up top). For this outfit, I stuck with a geometric theme. I played the geometric pattern with pointed toe pumps, statement drop earring, and an elongating turtleneck to keep the flow of the outfit.

Revamping Maxis

Maxi skirts were one of the biggest summer trends the past year or so. Even though the trend is starting to fade out, they’re still an item that I’d like to keep in my wardrobe. They’re a great piece for both comfort and style. Another fantastic benefit of maxis is the they’re convertible from season to season. By changing the color, material, or styling, they can be worn well into the fall. That’s one of the reasons why I’m obsessed with this burgundy maxi. Styling it with a heavier black top and rich, gold jewelry makes it appropriate and comfortable for the transitioning fall weather.

Lightened Up Leather

Leather is always one key wardrobe concept that I have a hard time giving up every spring. Lucky for me, this faux leather A-line skirt is lightweight and easy to style for warmer weather. I styled it with a bold blue top and white blazer to incorporate some color into the outfit. I also added these strappy BCBG heels, because they add a mix of dark color with a “springy” vine from the open toe.
