OOTD: GINGHAM | FASHION SHORT | KAT

I know, if you’ve never heard of this word before (Gingham) here’s the definition for ya’! ✻Ging·ham (noun)- Lightweight plain-woven cotton cloth, typically checked in white and a bold color. It’s basically the opposite of a flannel. Also, I thought it was a cool name for a fashion short!

NOT YOUR BASIC TEE: ZARA

In this case this is a simple oversized white tee, with gingham incorporated. The high-low rise gives it a chic upgrade to your basic tee.

I can’t get over how cool this top is! I mean just look at those tulip shaped sleeves, it’s like nothing i’ve seen before. I know it’s not for everybody, but sometimes we have to get out of our comfort zone to find amazing things. (And that goes for anything in life)

This shirt can be worn with sneakers or your favorite booties this Fall. Speaking of which, these are my trusty booties that My husband bought me years ago! and they’re still going strong, I love timeless pieces in my wardrobe that can be worn over, and over again. But I think this might be the last time I wear them before I retire them.

STRUCTURE HANDBAG: CALVIN KLEIN

Faux leather is what makes this outfit. It gives it that edgy look, to a very fashion forward top!

For a night-time look you could switch the leggings for faux leather ones; and switch the booties for some stilettos! Or some chic red-bottoms.

4th of July Outfit Ideas | Fashion Short

Welcome back lovelies! For today’s fashion post, i’m bringing you two outfit ideas for a very special and memorable day. Let me start off by saying, that if you’re reading this and you’ve served our country, thank you ♡

Even though I am still obsessed with the outfit ideas that I styled for the 4th of July last year; This year I wanted to incorporate Red, White, and Blue as pops of color with grey. Not as many stars and stripes, but still keeping them very patriotic.

♡♡ Watch this #OOTD Fashion Short on my channel: 4TH OF JULY OUTFIT IDEAS

First up, is this casual & comfy outfit.

BASIC GREY TUNIC: FREE PEOPLE

I’m using this solid grey tunic to incoporate our flags colors in a chic way.. under I used a Royal blue bodycon dress to compesate for the loose-ness of the tunic.

ROYAL BLUE BODYCON: URBAN OUTFITTERS

I went on the shorter side for the bodycon dress to keep cool for any outside activites on one of the hottest months of the year.

GETAWAY SUMMER SCARF: STEVE MADDEN

How cute is this summer scarf? I know.. it sounds crazy a scarf in the beginning of July? But I promise its so lightweight, you don’t even feel like its there. Plus there are so many versatile ways that a scarf in the summer could come in handy!

On of the ways: around your head, to keep the harsh sun from your face, or if you’re going swimming as a cover-up. Or for when it gets chilly at night as an extra layer.

SHOES: WHITE CONVERSE

If you’ve followed my blog for a while now, you would know that one of my favorite shoes to ever wear are converse (preferably white, low tops). Perfect as my pop of white which already have red and blue on them as well.

This outfit came together so wonderfully, so comfortable and cool not just for the 4th but for the summer as well.

 

My second outfit idea is a bit more nautical:

EMBROIDER DRESS: ZARA

Embroidery is one of the hottest trends for this summer, it’s a very cute way to spice up a basic piece. Basic white and blue stripes with red roses, it keeps up with the patriotic feel without all the stars and stripes.

This dress is so light and airy, it makes me feel like I’m on vacation, especially if there’s water nearby.

VACATION TOTE: VICTORIA’S SECRET

GLADIATORS: F21

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

White accessories for the win. It’s a chic way to keep the entire outfit looking crisp.

STRAW HAT: MARSHALLS

A hat is always optional.. but it was the little umph.. this outfit to need to feel complete. Pink lemonade on hand and you’ve got a 4th of July to remember. Now to make one the hardest decision ever. Which outfit should I wear on the 4th?! help me choose in the comments!

I hope you have a fun and safe summer, filled with Joy. Thank you so much for joining me today.

A few weeks back, I put together an all white outfit and showed you how you could rock it in a very wearable way. This week i’m coming at ya, with an all black look!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Black looks great on absolutely everyone, and keeping it chic is very easy. Plus its very winter appropriate, Just throw on a black leather jacket to keep you warm.

HOLOGRAPHIC TEE: ZARA

This is such a cool top that brings so much dimension to this outfit. The holographic crop top gives it a cool vibe, it’s layered on top of a normal t-shirt that goes past my bum; makes wearing leggings much more wearable. To get this look just find a dressier tee, all the other items in this outfit can totally be replaced with anything you already have in your closet!

I’ve showed these leggings before, it’s no secret that they’re my all time fave! They have leather patches all over, which puts them a step up from regular leggings.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I’ve kept the accessories pretty simple, these leather booties are so comfortable, and very chic. I love to refer to them as my witch boots, they compliment the leather patches on my leggings very well. All black aviators was the way to go on this beautiful sunny day!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Remember, you can rock any color, any outfit. A little confidence goes a long way! And if you hadn’t noticed I did go for a black lipstick as well!

It finally feels like Winter here in Houston, it’s currently 28 degrees Fahrenheit; which i’m really happy about! But, I do wish we has white winters. and that is where the inspiration for Winter White came from.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I gathered every piece of white fashion items from my closet, to create this chic look. Btw.. when I wore this outfit shopping; I got so many compliments.

So, gather all your white pieces and let put an outfit together!

FAUX FUR VEST: F21

From.. Cremes to White as Snow. Mixing different shades of Whites makes and all white outfit more wearable, and not attention seeking. Keeping it classy but fun!

I also love mixing different textures and fabrics, it adds more depth and interest to any look.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Don’t get me wrong using the same shade of white; is do-able but it takes a bit more precision, in how to style and sometimes not as flattering as you think it is.

Let’s talk accessories!

WHITE WATCH: PARK LANE

I wanted to keep the accessories very minimal, and straight to the point. I forgot I owned this gorgeous White Watch. It was the perfect addition to this outfit. The diamonds are the perfect compliment to the vest!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I was going to put myself through the pain of wearing some very high heels, but again I decided to make this look a little bit more wearable for that reading for anything look! Therefore, I decided to go with these cuties. That surprisingly I use more often than not.

#OOTD: Metallic Snow

In this post I will give you a few tips on how to style a simple sweater, for a work related Holiday party!  P.s. If you’ve ever asked a co-worker “What are you wearing to the office Holiday party? because I don’t want to be overly-dressed or under-dressed” then this post is for you! Keep reading to get all the deets!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

We all have those Christmas/Holiday parties coming up, and if you’re anything like me. I have a hard time telling where to draw the line between normal casual wear and professional; When it comes to a “networking party”

My approach: Be festive, but keep it low-key and professional. In other words keep it safe! I know right? Me saying keep it safe, that’s a first. But my reasoning is that you never know who you’ll be meeting.

METALLIC GOLD SNOWFLAKE LONGSLEEVE: TOTAL GIRL

This is such a simple sweater to wear for an office party, it’s neutral colors keep it professional, and non-attention seeking; yet festive enough for the holidays! I love that the snowflakes are metallic, and that the background is a cool tone grey! Which make it easy to pair other neutrals with.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset
OVER-SIZED VEST: SPACE GIRLZ

My version of still keeping it ‘office appropriate’ The vest keeps everything looking sleek and professional. As you will see in the next picture I decided to wear thick leggings with this outfit, therefore the length is also perfect. This piece is just a no brainier.

THICK LEGGINGS: KARDASHIAN KOLLECTION | METALLIC HEELS: JESSICA SIMPSON

You’re probably like Leggings to the office?! are you crazy? Well maybe, but in my opinion it’s still a holiday party and you’re allowed to have a bit more fun.

These leggings have become an essential for my wardrobe. I’ve had them for years and they still look amazing! The faux leather patches bring so much fun and texture to this outfit.

These heels match the long sleeve so well, that I just had to pair them together for this look. They’re also another fun piece, I love the bow detail on them.

And of course this Look can be worn for so many occasions, and also you can make it your own by changing out a few pieces!

The colder weather is coming, but is not here just yet! That is why I’m bringing you a transitional #OOTD from Fall to Winter.. you can adjust today’s fashion tips depending on where you live and the type of weather you’re having! btw.. I’m wishing you a white Christmas 😉

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
SWEATER DRESS: ROSS

I know right?! What an amazing find at Ross, which btw.. I can never find good things in that store but if you dig far enough, you might find amazing treasures! I believe it was under $20. I love this dress because it has a sweater material but it’s not too thick, making it the perfect transitional dress.

If you look closely at the sleeves it looks like I have a separate sweater under the dress, but it’s just part of the dress. Making it even less bulky. It’s great for layering because of its tight-ish fit, and it’s neutral colors make it easy to pair with anything.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
CROSSBODY BAG: STEVE MADDEN

Yes, this is a very casual outfit but I wanted to add a little classiness with a much nicer handbag! It fits all your necessities without carrying a huge tote! (which would be cute as well) but for a more casual/running errands type of day I like to go hands-free.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Here’s a better close up of the cross body! I love the detail. It’s so chic! I love it!!

Girl! with these boots you’ll be ready for anything! From Christmas Shopping, to Christmas tree cutting! These are suppose to be over-the-knee boots but, I rolled them down because the dress already hits so low!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Add a pair of thick tights to keep you warm on those pre-winter days.
