What's On Your Head?

So hat season is upon us & I couldn't be more excited. From wool fedoras to berets to caps i'm loving it all. While temperatures drop & winds get heavier there is nothing more helpful than throwing on a hat. I live in NY where we deal with absurd weather conditions, so styling my hair gets nearly impossible during the winter months. Having a stylish hat definitely keeps me presentable yet chic, when bad hair days roll around. I've rounded up a few of my favorite for you guys, I hope you love them as much as I do.

1. This Faux leather cap from Zara is one of my favs. Great to throw on when you want to be a bit more dressed up.

2. Everyone needs a beret in their life...I mean EVERYONE lol. I love this cheap & chic one from Forever 21

3. Sailor hats took over the season but the details on this version by Lack of Color is unmatched 

4. Oookkkk Can we say #GOALS this gorgeous fedora from Gucci is so darn fab...Need I say more?

5. Beanies & winter go hand & hand, I love this fun quirky rendition by Jocelyn fur. 


Skincare Chronicles: L'Occitane Shea Butter Collection

As much as I love fashion, sometimes I like to switch gears a bit. Today I want to touch on my favorite accessory which is my skin. For me taking care of my skin is more important than the clothes that I wear. I try to take care of my skin by drinking lots of water, exfoliation, and moisturizing. With it getting colder now, it was important for me to switch my routine for the upcoming winter months. Shea butter and my skin go hand and hand, I always try to use products which contain shea butter as an ingredient. Shea butter is made from shea tree nuts, and is rich in vitamin A, E, F & fatty acids which are extremely nourishing & moistirzing on the skin.


Let's Talk Plaid

Unless you've been living under a rock lol, I'm sure you've noticed that the trend for fall is Plaid. Plaid pants, skirts, jackets and blazers have taken over the fall season. Before I jump on a trend, I always think of how I can do it "my way". I chose a plaid boyfriend blazer from H&M, because I knew it would give me versatility & I could style a number of ways.

For this look I decided I wanted to do something different than what I kept seeing online, which was pairing the blazer with boyfriend jeans. Although I do plan on wearing that look and probably quite often, I wanted to come out the box a little bit. I paired my blazer with a patent leather skirt & a Rock band T-shirt (The Who) to add some fun to it. Plaid can come across a bit serious depending on how styled so, it was important for me to style it in a way that would still capture my fun, edgy style.

The mix of the plaid and rock T was already a lot, so I decided to keep accessories to a minimum with this look. To finish it off I added a pair of Celine Sunnies from Smartbuyglasses (you always need a pair of killer sunnies) & patent leather booties from Windsor. My ankle still hasn't fully recovered but despite the height these boots are actually very comfortable. Below I've included outfit details as well on my favorite Plaid finds. How are you guys rocking the plaid style? Comment below!

Track Pants For The Win!

If you grew up in the 80/90's like me then you know tear away track pants were life. I was very active growing up, track & field, Basketball etc so I lived in my Nike Tear away pants.  A few months ago I started seeing different designers making leisure pants with the tear away style, at first I was a bit hesitant but the look started to grow on me. I decided I wanted  to try the look, so I opted for a pair from zara which were a mix of a dress pant & a tear away style.  I then added a classic white button down shirt & my go to heels. Below I've shared my favorite track pants as well as outfit details from this look. Are you guys feeling the track pant trend? Comment below!

Wishing on a star

Ok, it might be weird but I have a crazy obsession with stars. I'm not sure if my mom read me twinkle-twinkle too many times when I was a child, but I feel a sense of good luck when I'm wearing something with stars on it. From jewelry to sneakers to clothes if it has a star on it, i'm buying it lol. Lately i've been coming across plenty of items with stars on them so while I was on a trip to Philadelphia recently, I decided to sport a head to "star inspired" look.
