Welcome to my Fall

The start of a new school year, fashion week, pumpkin lattes (if that’s your thing…sorry but no thanks) a new position after 19 years at work, leading the continuation of my fathers legacy, and all along looking stylish has made fall a very busy season.

The point I’m trying to make is that we all go through things, whether they are apparent to others doesn’t make them any less importance.

For me when I get dressed it makes me feel ready to take on my day! To inspire others! When others tell me that my dances made them smile or laugh…I am so all about that!! Wouldn’t you rather make someone feel uplifted, alright to be themselves rather than put someone down, make them feel bad!?

It’s harder to be and find kindness…WHY? Because we are human! Practicing to be authentic, kind, caring and inspiring is work…EVERYDAY! Let’s face it not everyday is that kind of day! So on those days we remind ourselves that we are struggling and trying our best and to be kind, caring and compassionate!

With that being said I have gathered some of my favorite looks and products of fall must haves this fall! To help inspire you to feel your best, to give your best!

Let’s start with Tee’s! These are easy go to pieces because they can be layered, dressed up with a tulle skirt , layered over a fancy dress, the sky is the limit! Obviously they are great for dressing down with jeans…keep scrolling you’ll see my takes!

Sweaters are a staple in the fall and a vest will be the perfect transition from the warm days to cold nights. You can never go wrong with Houndstooth!! Don’t you agree!?

The Grey knit and sparkle silver metallic boots tied together the warm tones of autumn like orange, burgundy and of course a plaid print in the mix.

Mix sweater dresses with fun upbeat prints like cheetah! Add a houndstooth with creamy fun textures! Add some graphic college style sweatshirts to create great collard shirt layers and Jean Friday’s!

Let’s talk pops! Like these pink hunter boots! I found them in the kids section on the Bloomies web site! A little color can go a long way with the right pieces.

Heel pops and neck bows! These are great places in any look to add your color pop!! Especially if your wardrobe may not be so colorful yet.

Now let’s talk texture! From real leather to faux what would fall be without them? Lace brings a romantic twist while feathers fly in with whimsy and fun!

So excited to have announced that I will be an affiliate with Courtney Adele! Her pop corn was gone before I could even take the picture LOL!!! Tea time and coffee breaks will NEVER be the same again once you step into the Olbali family products, something for everyone.

My foot has been feeling so much better with the Olbali hemp cream. My go to fragrance is called ‘Rose of no man’s land’ by Byredo. These new amazing metallic and matt eye shadows by Tarte I picked up at Ulta and I am crushing over them!!

So excited to be back in the swing if things! I will be sending a blog out quarterly, definitely and on occasion to introduce this amazing community with things I think will bring you inspiration, laughs and of course fun Style!!

Thanks for being here!!

Until next style,

Xoxo,

Tops of the season

As summer in New York continues to be hotter than the surface of the sun, I am wearing breathable fabrics and running from a.c. to a.c. So here are some of my top tops of the summer and how versatile they will or will not be for summer! Dress them up, dress them down, what to wear now and inspire for fall!

This Tee was my son’s, a souvenir from Hawaii!! I didn’t have the heart to donate it so I used it!! Put on some cream pants, draped a colorful scarf around my waist and Ta-da!

This Chanel inspo tee really brought the color! Pairing this for fall will be easy as 1, 2, 3! Don’t leave color to summer…fall will be busting with pops of fun colors.

Tube tops are a must for the super hot muggy days! This one I may actually try layering with an oversized bow blouse! Stay tuned!

This tank is an oldie but goodie! It layers amazing with plaid during the holiday time. Or go head to toe sparkle!! There’s never a bad time for more bling! Don’t you agree?

Do a basic tank with a little detailed edge and any print skirt!! Tops like this are great for under or over in the colder months! You can never go wrong with a basic!

A mock neck tank is always a great cut for summer and even better in the fall to layer for THE perfect color block look!

A little frilled neck always keeps whimsy in your look and uplifts the soul!! I created these lace pants, don’t look at the elastic..lol!! Other than that loved them!!

So end your summer at the top, with some of these tubes, tanks and Tee’s!! Get ready to get creative with them!! Because before we know it fall will be calling our name!

Until next style

A little luau

How is your summer going!???? I can’t believe that it’s the end of July!! Ayaya!! We have had a packed summer so far with some work, lots of fun and memories and home improvements!! It always feels good to check off a few things on the to do list when you get a little time off! I’m enjoying dressing for backyard bbq’s, birthday celebrations and brunch! So here’s a little ode to luau and all the magic that comes with them!

Loving a linen floral dress. It ALWAYS brings vacation vibes! Adding gold and a shade lighter metallic turqoise, a bit of white and everything comes together!! All I’m missing is the grass skirt!!

Try a simple long sarong or extra large scarf! Wrap around your waist for a long or short skirt by folding in half. Stripes, no matter the color, and white become a go to basic!! The pink went well with the colorful print! Staying on trend with a bit of macrame with the bag and for added texture my visor and sandals!

Add your own twist of luau with bright colorful cotton pants! Use a scarf as a top by tieing the bottom two corners of your scarf around your waist and the top two around your neck!

Here’s another take on luau with a silk body suit and layered beads! Never enough details.

Until next style,

Summer print pops

Summer is meant for fun prints and lots of color! Whether it’s in the clothes or the accessories, prints make everything better! So here is a collection of prints to find, wear and love!

This Sara Joy kaftan is a must for summer! Whether running errands, heading to lunch after the beach or anyr fun summer activity. The color pops against the black creating movement in the print, I couldn’t help but pair the dollar store butterfly stickers as accessories by just adding a few bobby pins!

Try a bit of a hippy vibe with wide leg bell bottom floral neutral pants with a fun swirl of color for a head scarf. I love pulling colors from patterns to add in to my accessories.

This Tabitha Brown X Target collaboration kimono/dress is a must with the bright pop of orange/yellow, colorful flowers and adorable white polka-dots! Paired so well with all white accessories!

Go BIG or go home is what they say! So pairing this fab lemon print, another great piece from the Tabitha Brown X Target collab, with this stark black a white print was such a great marriage! 

Do you do matchy matchy? I have to say..LOVE IT!! This jump suit is a repeat and from Walmart kids. If you are on the short side you can fit in some of the larger sized children’s clothes in lots of stores.
