The sweatpants edit!

I never had the guts to wear my sweatpants out…other than places like the gym. Well, I woke up this morning and thought, WTHH?? What’s it called..YOLO? or whatever kids say these days…Why don’t I just wear them today. When I woke up, I knew I needed to stylish, presentable, professional yet super comfortable because I was scheduled for a 3 hour work meeting. So I figured, since a dress was so not on the table (didn’t feel like it), I opted for pants. But I obviously couldn’t do jeans! Soooo, I went for my sweats and damn!! Now I get why loads of people wear them out for the day. They’re fantastically and extremely comfortable. The only things is that if you decide to wear them, you need to make damn sure you bring fire. So, since it was a little cold and rainy, I knew I wanted to go for a full-on sweater on sweater look….but to add a little pizzazz, I added a smart shirt that slightly peeked through my top and some heels.

And this is how I made my sweats happen:

The heels I have been wearing non-stop all month long. I cannot explain how these Vince Camuto boots make me feel. They’re so cute and super super comfortable.

I am not going to lie, this look made me kinda feel ghetto. Like I feel so swag, it’s not even funny! Hence the poses X)

Can I say that not only was I warm, but I also felt super comfortable and at ease during my meeting…actually the whole day. Will I sport this look again…ummm, hell yeah!

-Reitmans grey sweater

Patching it up weekend style.

So I have been wanting to make these patched up jeans for a while but being busy and procrastinating sometimes gets in the way. As soon as I found myself less busy, I decided this is the right time to make an old jean of mine look rockin’.

I have had these boyfriend Forever 21 jeans for a while and wanted to embellished them my own way. So I turned to my favorite place to shop for patches and found this beautiful store that carries loads of cute and adorable patches. If you are looking to embellish something you own, I recommend you visit them. The service was great and the patches arrived on time.

1 culotte and 5 different looks

Culottes seem scary to some…but!!!! when styled properly and imaginatively, they are a chic alternative to classic tailoring and work just as easily by day and by night. Culottes were very big in 2015 and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Women’s culottes came about in the Victorian era, as women of the time started to become much more active by participating in  various physical activities such as horseback riding, tennis and bicycling. Since skirts were not so so practical, the bifurcated skirts of the Victorian era were created to give women the illusion of wearing a long skirt while allowing them to be active.

The French word “culottes” was borrowed and used to refer to these new women’s pants. Women enjoyed a new-found freedom in the Victorian version of culottes and did not need to endure much social backlash, because this garment looked enough like a skirt.

To give life to one of the biggest trends of the past, I have come up with 5 different looks using 1 pair of culottes….From super-dressy to wildly-rocker chic. So check bellow for inspiration…

1-The super feminine delicate look:
I paired these Zara checkered culottes with a loose pleated vintage top and necklace..Then I added pops of color with my electric blue scarf and red Zara block heels.

2- The laid back-no hassle-too cool for school look:
I paired the same culottes with a simple vintage mustard sweater and paired it with pops of red in the scarf and the necklace. I then added leather knee high boot with gold touches to tie in with the mustard top.

3- The free spirit-pattern loving girl look:
I paired the same checkered Zara culottes with a striped vintage shirt and a Reitmans sweater. To add color to this monochromatic look, I added suede blue Jessica Simpson heels and a flower statement necklace. This is one of my favorite looks because you have freedom to mix and match patterns. Taking risks in fashion is something I definitely love to do!

4- The super fashionista look:
This look is where there are endless possibilities to add colors, textures and little details without boundaries. I paired the culotte with a texture Reitmans sweater and added pops of color with an orange scarf and a red heart-shaped Kate Spade bag. I then added some sparkles on my feet with these beige/black Forever 21 sandals. I then tied this all up with a mirrored necklace which has reflections of blue, orange and red.

5- The rocker chic bad-ass look:
This is probably my favorite look of all time, because I can live in a leather jacket and die in one and be the happiest girl in town. I always was and always will be a leather jacket kindda girl. I paired the culottes with a Danier leather jacket, a Tupac/Notorious B.I.G. top, Vince Camuto booties and tied it all together with a brown veil.

Even though these culottes were checkered, I still felt freedom in styling them as I want. Like any piece of clothing in your wardrobe, you must understand it, love it and feel it!! With that one piece, you have endless and countless opportunities to style it as you wish to express yourself freely and without boundaries. It is necessary to not be afraid to mix and match. This is exactly what gives you the chance to leave your own mark in the world and to define your own style. So be unique, but most importantly be you!!
