A Pearlescent Edginess

IMG_9063

Welcome to 2018! A new year of edginess, sophistication , and creativeness. I wanted to start off the year extremely different than the rest by mixing up my wardrobe to not only bring you all some style but a unique sense of combination that you can actually implement it to your daily life, or at least when you go out.

I have found that breaking the rules when wearing a sophisticated item can go very well if worn correctly and minimally. The perfect example is a pearl dress. Pearls are known to be the gem of showing sophistication, so I decided to spice it up and pair it with tights and chunky neutral heels. It says I’m sophisticated but I’m also not taking my self too seriously.

My Top 3 Winter Staples

Winter is almost here, even though here in California it seems more like fall.

I can’t complain too much though because the weather has been tricky and wearing sweaters has been a tad bit dreary due to the semi heat we get. But with that being said, I am more than excited for winter to arrive because I want to wear my top 3 winter staples each and every day.

The first is the TRENCH COAT

It is a must in my closet. It’s the best fashion accessory to wear for any occasion. Layer anything under and top it off with the trench. It’s a warmer indeed.

SHOP THIS TRENCH COAT :Floral trench coat

Next is STATEMENT SWEATERS

One of my favorite fashion trends this year has got to be the statement sweaters. It’s a different approach to an ordinary simple sweater and I find it spices things up a bit.

SHOP THIS SWEATER: Bow tie sweater

Lastly the SHORT DRESS

I love boots, especially knee high boots. I find that short dresses are the key to flaunt those long and tall boots. They both meet half way creating a super stylish combo.

SHOP THIS DRESS: Hooded Dress

The Sporty Chic Look


I may not always wear joggers or sweats, but since the weather has been cooling down I haven’t really felt like wearing my jeans each time I go out for quick errands. So of course I had to go to SHEIN.com

They have the most affordable and cute clothing anyone could ever ask for. It fits my budget, keeps me happy, and makes me stay stylish. I was completely in love with the jacket and jogging pants I found. They make me feel very comfy and flexible at the same time, which usually is pretty tough for me to find items that make me feel at ease, so this was definitely a win win for me!

Leaf Print Dress: Two Ways

Summer is in full swing and being comfy while having a bit of breeze, thats what matters the most in this heat. Style of course comes in second. I have been obsessed with the leaf print dress (so much I need help!) and of course I needed to create a day to night look for this gorgeous slip on dress.

Hats, espadrille sneakers, and cute accessories compliment this leaf print dress so well, you will instantly be looking so stylish everyone will wonder if you are a model (literally, Im a witness to it lol). Its such a nice versatile dress that you can’t go wrong with! Im wearing a small and the price is just below $20! Its a must steal/have which will make all your friends jelly!

I hope you like the two ways I styled this dress and of course, happy friday!

How To Pull Off An Outfit With No Jewelry

I am very guilty of not wanting to wear accessories very often. At times I even forget to add jewelry to an outfit I’m planning on shooting, but of course as a mom it can be very tough trying to remember everything when you have 10 min to get ready and on top of that your toddler wants to eat (again!). But thankfully I have discovered 4 easy tricks that can save you much time when getting ready, and not even bother reaching into your jewelry box.

First: Pick a neutral bottom color such as white, beige, or even regular jeans

Second: Patterend blouses or striped shirts definitely will work

Third: Put on sandals with prints on them, or low heels with two toned colors

Fourth: Pick your favorite purse (or do rock paper scissors to decide)

Et Voila! You will have your outfit ready in no time and all you need is to throw on your shades. Easy right!?

Tropical Summer Wishlist

Hello loves! Monday is here and we are back at it again. I hope your monday has started off on the right note, and if not, don’t sweat it! Your day will come 🙂

I wanted to take the time to write this post because as we know, summer FINALLY started and we need to be prepared both fashion wise and budget friendly. I recently discovered, and maybe you have heard of it, SHE INSIDE. It is the most AFFORDABLE and stylish online clothing store. I have gotten a few pieces from them and it took those few items to get me hooked with wanting to buy more.

I have already started browsing through their items and found such amazing deals on tropical themed clothes! And yes, I have already started adding items to my cart as we speak (hope my hubs doesn’t check the bank account 😀 ).

Any way, below I have listed the items I think we all need to have, check it out and comment below which is your fave!

Much love, Karen ❤

Dress on Top of Jeans

Okay so its Monday and of course I’m ready to try out something new. I know we are not exactly at that point where its humid and hot outside, but as I stare at my closet filled with those oh so pretty off-the-shoulder dresses, I can’t help but to think about how I can manage to wear them without it being so dressy. Does it make sense? Well my initial thought was to wear them with a sweater, and of course I hesitated because don’t we all do that (its so comfy tho). To top it off, I realized I needed to go shopping for sweaters anyway, so that was out of the box, and then I thought why not layer it on top of jeans. Its very simple and yet so sophisticated at the same time. Adding a pair of heels (I really wanted sneakers) gives it that cherry on the top. So now my Monday is complete and I can go relax…jk I need to do loads of laundry 😦 but I sure will do it in style.
