Hello my loves!

There seems to be a new trend on the rise…The Cat Obsession! Forever 21 released there Batman and Cat woman collection recently, but it seems like this trend is taking the fashion world by storm….purrrrrfect (sorry I had to do it lol).

Check out a few of my favorite pieces on how to incorporate this trend, if you choose, into your wardrobe. Halloween is right around the corner so these options may make for a great costume!

It seems like every few seasons plaid makes its way back into our lives. I used to own quite a few plaid shirts, but I have no idea where they are. My favorite was purple, black, grey, and white and I always wore it with my grey skinny jeans. I couldn’t get those skinny jeans to go past my knees a few years ago so they are long gone, and I guess my shirt is too.

Anywhoo, this season plaid is making a huge comeback and it’s not just with the tops. Think jackets, coats, blazers, skirts, dresses, shoes, and more. I think I still have this plaid jacket that I purchased from H&M a few years ago. I really love the coat, but it takes some work to put it on, well maybe not a lot of work, but it has more buttons and strings that need to be fastened and tied or you will just look ridiculous walking down the street.

Here are 5 pieces that I love that would be great additions to anyone’s wardrobe. Remember, when it comes to trends you want to pick trends that work for your body type. So be mindful of what you choose. Plaid is a busy print and you do not want to pick an item that draws attention to your problem areas. Take a look at the pieces that I selected below.

So there you have it! My “Animal Instincts” look

Independence Day is quickly approaching and I am sure that many of you will be hitting the beach, pools, or a family barbecue. This day is pretty low key for many people. It usually involves lots of sun (if the weather is cooperating) food, and drinks. Check out these options for a great outfit for the fourth of July!

Here is a curated collection of traditional red, white, and blue piece. You can show your true patriotic spirit without stars and stripes! I love a graphic print t-shirt and I’ve seen countless tops in stores like Forever 21 if you are looking to buy an expensive top. I’ve always wanted a pair of American Flag shorts, but the types that I have found are a little TOO short. I can’t expose the goods like that lol.

I’m back with another “What I Wore” and I’m happy to say that spring has finally sprung! Well temporarily at least, we are back in to the 50s later this week *boooo* but the weather has been pretty nice lately.

For this look I went for something modern for the work place. I paired a light weight spring sweater with a blue and yellow brocade print pencil skirt and nude pumps. It is modern with the prints, but work appropriate because of the classic nude pumps as well as the loose fitting top.

When it comes to pairing items with a pencil skirt, you do not to go with something extremely fitted because the pencil skirt is fitted. If you are going to wear a fitted top, I would pair it with a sweater or blazer to add dimension to your look. That’s only if you work in a conservative setting. If not, by all means where what makes you the most comfortable. So to offset the skirt slim fitting skirt I paired it with a light weight sweater with a “blousy” feel.

Take a closer look!
