Dress: HauteHippie || Shoes: Christian Louboutin || Necklace: Nadri

Hi, Guys!! So it has been a while, and I do apologize. The last couple of months has been crazy busy, but so much fun! I have had an amazing internship with behno, and I love every second of it.

As I have been working in New York City, I am constantly inspired by fellow fashionistas, store windows and just the beauty of the city. With that said I have experimented with my style (what better place to do it than NYC!), I’ve said this many times before, but I want to push my boundaries with my style. I have gotten so many fun, crazy, edgy pieces, and I am so excited to share that with you (and hopefully inspire you guys to be adventurous haha).

To me, the holidays call for a little sparkle and red!

When I pulled this dress off the rack, I was so unsure of the style and length but after trying it on I fell in LOVE. I mean it is gorgeous, the perfect mesh between sexy and elegant. What a perfect time for a look like this, it is simple but truly classic.

I recently got these heels, and they are amazingggg! Dress them down or up, they are a perfect metallic shoe for any wardrobe. All I needed to add was that touch of sparkle and the look was complete! For those of you in colder weather like me, throw a faux fur coat on and you’re good to go!

Happy Holidays! xxx

Pants: J Crew || Shirt: Zara || Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Two of my favorite things today on the blog! Chic hairstyles and an easy, put together look.

I love BOHO style! I think different fashionistas have different approaches when it comes to “boho chic”. Boho chic to me is everything that reminds me of the vibrant colors and designs of Morocco. Orange can be hard to where but I tend to go towards more of a burnt orange because it suits my skin tone better. These orange pants are perfect for work, the day or a night out and a popular Moroccan color! They are so comfortable and chic.

I paired this gorgeous Zara top (made in Morocco) with neutral pants but loved this approach so much more. It is a simple look that just has the perfect hints of detail.

So you’ve probably seen many celebs sporting the “half up top knot”. I wanted to try it and couldn’t love it more! What a perfect summer hairstyle and so easy to do. (let me know if you guys want to see a tutorial on my version of this hairstyle!)

Happy Tuesday ūüôā

Cleansing

_DSC7222 _DSC7218 _DSC7214

I am talking all about cleansing your body today with my favorite juice cleanse! I love cleaning my body of toxins through the Blueprint cleanse system. I usually can only do cleanses for up to 3 days and find it quite rewarding. Here is the schedule I follow:

~ Day 1-3 ~

Green Juice

P.A.M. (Pineapple, Apple, Mint)

Green Juice

Spicy Lemonade

C.A.B. (Carrot, Apple, Beet)

Cashew Milk

Now you’re thinking how can I drink solely juice for three days?! I know it sounds crazy but after trying it, it’s totally doable. It starts with preparing yourself for the cleanse. Prior to the cleanse I slowly began to cut out caffeine, sweets, fried foods, red meats so it wouldn’t be drastic when I started the cleanse (which was so helpful!) I began to eat raw vegetables and fruits the day before the cleanse as well as oatmeal so that I had substance while staying healthy. Day 1 was easy because I eased into the process which made day 2 fly by. Day 3 is the hardest because you feel a little faint and at that point I drank a lot of water and had a banana.

So after the first cleansing experience the next one I made adjustments. Some including drinking a lot of water and tea, in between juices, as well as eating nuts and fruits (which helps feeling faint or dizzy).

Blueprint juices have a total of 1100 calories that are nutrition packed. My personal favorite is the green kale juice and P.A.M juice. I recommend a cleanse after a big weekend, wedding, action not too often. It is to clean toxins and allow you to feel cleansed, so doing it too often can defeat the purpose. Staying fit and eating well are key to a healthy lifestyle, never forget that!

Dressometry

It’s here! I am so excited about today’s post…I partnered up with Dressometry, and it was an amazing experience. Dressometry makes your search for that perfect dress quick and easy! I love to shop online but to go through millions of sites trying to find the right dress gets tiring; Dressometry has created a more personal dress shopping experience to help find that perfect dress without wasting time.

Ever since I can remember, dresses (and shoes!) have been my favorite pieces. I have more than my fair share of dresses, but there’s always room for more! Despite the season, I always try to incorporate a dress into my daily outfits, because let’s be honest pants can get a little tiring after two months. However, sometimes finding the right dress whether it be for the day, or an event can be extremely hard. All of these frustrations and endless searches became so much easier when I was introduced to Dressometry! Instead of looking at over a dozen of my favorite sites, Dressometry has compiled many great sites to help find that perfect occasion dress.

How did I find my perfect dress?

I have a weakness for the perfect LBD, but I wanted something that could transition from day to-night. I went to¬†Dressometry and focused my search with just a few clicks, using their filter tool. I wanted something flowy, simple yet elegant but still affordable. What I love about Dressometry is they pull from great websites that young women, like me, would shop at. After my filtered results had come up, I was immediately drawn to a black, Lovers & Friends dress from Shopbop (on sale!). It was exactly what I was looking for…the the perfect day to-night dress!

Shoes: Christian Louboutin || Pants: J brand || Sweater: n/a || Jacket: Maje

 

This is probably one of my favorite outfits!! Leather pants are trending from runways to celebrity wardrobes, they are an absolute must have this year. This J brand pair are my favorite and I love to wear as much as I can! Now,¬†my favorite part of this outfit!! The shoes….. These Louboutins are show stoppers, and probably my favorite pair in my collection. I have a weakness for shoes (especially heels).

There is something about black and white outfit that is so classy. The electric blue, detailed patent heels add the right amount of sexiness for this look.

Shoes: Valentino || Jeans: Joes Jeans || Sweater: Express || Jacket: Maje || Sunglasses: RayBan || Clutch: emPOWERED

This outfit is so versatile…it is a mesh between edgy and chic and can be worn to dinner or during the day. It is so weird, recently I have been loving sparkly sweaters and accessories and I am not usually one to wear anything too sparkly. However this Express sweater has just the right amount of sparkle for me. The leather and toe studded booties add that edgy style that I have been recently loving.

But the best part of my outfit is this clutch. I know you’re probably thinking, “it is just a black clutch!”,¬†but this clutch has so much more than you would think. emPOWERED is this awesome new company that makes chic handbags that help keep your phone charged when you’re desperately in need of a charger. This bag saved me from all the times my phone was dying and I was nowhere near an outlet. I am always on the go and this bag is perfect because all the styles are so chic and they help me stay connected without letting my phone die. (They are profiled in outlets from InStyle to Forbes!)

Defiantly worth checking out!
