There are days where the “I don’t know what to wear” syndrome bites in (despite a wardrobe filled with clothes), and today was one of those days where I wasn’t keen on wearing my skinny pants. I was looking for a more sophisticated yet very on-trend look – hence I reached for my wide-leg pants! It seems to be the perfect timing to be a little bit more daring and wear flares in the city. These pants seem specifically tailored to any confident, stand out woman that embodies a sensual, sophisticated lifestyle with a unique twist. Oh, and fear not, for wide-leg pants fit everyone! Whether you are petite or tall, skinny or curvy – they are seriously the new go-to for all shapes and sizes.
Further, I would like to THANK YOU all for your support and love! My limited edition jewelry collection is SOLD OUT! Thank you! Thank you! If you are, however, interested in a specific piece or pieces please, contact me HERE and I will make sure to put in a back order for you!

It’s time to embrace the wide-leg, cropped pants, y’all! I’m completely smitten by my new culottes (some call them gaucho pants, either work!) because they are the most comfortable pair of pants I’ve ever worn! They hang like a skirt but split like pants – genius, don’t you agree?!
However it’s important to balance proportions while rocking this pant trend. I decided to go with a simple crop top because one thing’s for sure: You don’t want to lose your waistline while prancing around in your super wide leg gauchos.
Looking to dip your toe into the culottes pool (or jump in head-first!)? Check out some of my favorite cropped pants below and start shopping!
As always, thanks much for reading & have a fabulous (long) weekend!
I don’t think it’s a secret that I love fashion, and that I always look for ways to add some extra sparkle into my day to day wardrobe choices – even if that will consist of wearing sequins during the day. Okay, you may find it daunting to wear sequins during the day, but let me tell you: Sequins are not just for special occasions (even though this will make a pretty darn cute outfit for Valentine’s Day!) if you follow these simple rules: Keep your sequined look C A S U A L. Pair your sequins with something über comfy like this tee from T&J Designs to make the look relaxed as opposed to oddly fancy. Also, stick to a similar color family so your wardrobe pieces don’t compete for attention – LOL! Hope this helps, and please let me know if you would wear sequins during the day! Would love to hear from you!
As always, thanks so much for reading & have a fabulous day!
I love an easy slip-on tunic, and this one from ShopbellaC is so feminine and flattering. Tunic’s are so versatile – from laid back beach styles to dressier versions, the tunic truly is a must have in a fashionista’s closet. The weather here has been somewhat crazy hence this outfit called for a faux fur vest (+ I wanted to add an extra dimension). Not to mention, part of me just feels so luxe being wrapped up in soft, faux fur, and it keeps me warm!

Happy Wednesday, darlings! Glad you stopped by! Today I’m layering it up with my new tassel scarf from OASAP. Chicago has been somewhat mild this winter which allowed me play a bit more with fashion. Like today. I loved walking around in my tassel scarf (which is reversible & has pockets!!), and by the way, it’s funny, the older I become the more I love scarfs. A few years ago I was certainly not a scarf-addict but now it seems that I have a bit of problem because I already own six! It’s crazy – I just love, love, LOVE them! But who cares?! Even if they will become “old fashioned” later on – we do know that “What’s old fashioned will become really cool one day again right?”
As always, thanks much for reading & have a great day!
