A Wrap Dress over Pant

Fashion is meant to be fun therefore, a dress over a pant as a work wear was a no-brainer. Working in an environment that does not require a dress code encouraged my habitual act of mixing casual and business formal. A pair of heels would have been nice for a 9-to-5 look but since I am a rebel by nature, I opted for my favorite …

White and Layered

Does anyone really pay attention to all the rules out there concerning when or when not to wear white? There are so many cute white outfits out there and this one is no exception.

Beautifully springy in the morning but cold at night.  Some mornings are still a bit cold too, at least not freezing. I think Mother Nature heard our cry and felt our agony last week Thursday on Facebook. It was supposed to …

A Cute Bow Tie Front Sweatshirt

Get cozy in this beautiful sweatshirt. Not your usual but a stylish piece that will get you noticed and have everyone asking where you got it from. Styled here with a slim-fit straight leg pant. It will also work paired with a full midi or mini skirt. Since the top is not fitted on the bottom, make sure the skirt is full enough to create …
