1) Something Leather!  I’m really going to try and make this trend work for me again this year I’m thinking a leather skirt this time- a colored leather skirt- the color is key this Fall! Last year, I got this fabulous pair of BCBG Leather leggings that looked amaze for a night out with heels, or for a casual lunch date with flats and a basic tee.

2) White on White! I recently started wearing white pants and I love it! By the way, whoever says “no white after Labor Day” needs to understand Fashion and grow up! Real Fashionistas don’t follow that! Don’t believe me? Check out the NYFW & LFW for proof. Im totally going to embrace white -on white. maybe mix different shades of white? Love it.

K’s Closet – Look inside my personal style

I love layers for many reasons – #1: the temp change from outdoors to indoors (&vice versa). How quickly you can go from 100 degrees outside to be freezing inside (think: grocery stores). I frequently wear blazers or cardigans over basic tee-shirts and dresses, as well as wearing scarves and tights. This really plays with proportion and not only helps with the temp change, but can make your outfit!


Vintage                                                                                                                                                        A lot of my pieces are vintage, or at least vintage-inspired 😉 I LOVE looking through thrift or vintage stores to find some unique items—Bonus: they’re usually really cheap and you wont be seeing anyone else with that exact piece!

From floral sundresses to embroidered skirts to stripe and polka dot printed tees, I love to wear a lot of different patterns especially when I mix and match. The key though is to either wear different patterns that share a color scheme or use similar patterns (like small polka dots and large polka dots.)

Colors Although the majority of my day-wear is in neutral colors like black, white, camel, navy, grey, brown, and olive, I do try to add pops of color. I don’t often wear outfits with more than one major color – my outfits are generally neutral with a splash of color here and there. Investing in high-quality neutral items is a great way to create a wardrobe that is versatile while still being visually interesting. Items like classic blazers, well-fitting jeans, solid-color dresses, leather jackets, and blouses can be remixed again and again into numerous different outfits. This is also a really easy way to get dressed: you just mix together some neutral basics and then add one colorful piece.Layers, Blazers, Basics

Girly Details
In addition to being retro-inspired, my style is also quite feminine. I often gear towards dresses or skirts and pieces with lace or floral detail. I adore shirts with a fun collars. Collars are my everything – probably has something to do with being in a Catholic school uniform for 13 years!

Shoes                                                                                                        I may or may not have too many shoes- depending how you look at it. Anyways, I believe I have high arches- legit wearing flat shoes HURTS the bottom of my feet. My mother never wore flats – not even sneakers for gym class back in school- so I know I get this shoe thing from her.  My Bf doesn’t get it – but then again he’s a boy so why would he! Don’t get me wrong, I got some Free Runs for the gym, original Toms and sandals for the summer – I’m trying to mix in more flats, but I prefer and do look for a small lift- small heel in everything! Ankle wedges and Ankle booties are my everything!

Accessories                                                                                                                                         Part of what makes a look so put-together and what helps clothing turn into outfits are accessories. Sunglasses, a statement watch, and large scarves – never underestimate the power of a good scarf! This is an easy way to dress up an otherwise basic outfit.

Take Risks
Despite usually sticking to my tried-and-true wardrobe pieces, I will occasionally take fashion risks (My friends always question me when I tell them what my outfit is going to be!) Like high-waist wide leg pants, menswear-inspired outfits, over-alls, wedge sneakers or just anything that you think wouldn’t go well together! Not being afraid to try out avant-garde looks is an important factor to my style.
I try to never look overdone – I love to appear effortless, as if I just rolled out of bed and threw on the first thing I saw (which is rarely ever the case haha…I usually try on a few pieces before I go with my outfit – but no one needs to know that 😉

Motto: Look good do good! Try not to leave the house until YOU (and only you) feel comfortable and happy in what you have on 
