Coachella

Once again, I am back from a mini hiatus, but this spring will be full of many fabulous, fashionable posts.  Both Coachella weekends have come to an end and it was not only an incredible time for music, but also for fashion.  Sadly, I did not make it to Coachella this year (and I am slightly depressed about it) so this post is dedicated to the stylish women of Coachella.  This has been a confusing and chilly spring thus far and I don’t know about you but I am seriously ready to break out the cropped tops, minis, and jean shorts! Festival style is the perfect teaser for summer style!

Nothing better than leather in 100 degree heat.  But really she does look fabulous!

Perforated Perfection

I don’t think it is any secret that I love leather!  I think leather is the best addition to any ensemble, and really the more leather the better.  Leather adds depth, edge and excitement to any look.  I like to experiment with different leather articles and accessories, as well as different leather textures and shapes.  The options are endless!  One of my favorite recent purchases is this perforated leather shift dress, which is perfect for work and weekend.  Experiment and embrace leather (vegan or real).

Holiday Attire

The Holiday Season has finally arrived! This year has been an incredible whirlwind and it is hard to believe we are here already, but I love it!  I love that everyone seems to be a little more cheerful, everything is decorated and people are constantly dressed in festive attire.  When dressing for holiday festivities I tend to turn to reds and sparkle to stay within the theme of the season.  It seems as if flannel is here to stay and that luckily, sequins and tastefully glittered clothing aren’t going anymore, which means you must have something holiday appropriate in your closet.  Stick with the holiday classics but make sure to pair it with a modern piece to bring your ensemble current.  As always, I turn to leather, but there are so many incredible options to turn to to update your festive attire.

Oversized Sweater

This past Saturday I explored the Monroe Street Market in Brookland and visited the Sartorialist’s Q&A/book signing.  For this super chilly Saturday, I turned to my new favorite oversized sweater.  I recently tried to clean out my closet and got overwhelmed very quickly and had to stop, but before I did I realized a lot of my wardrobe is oversized.  My go to pairing is an oversized top with skinnies of some kind, but an oversized top can work with different silhouettes and articles of clothing.  Try pairing an oversized top with a skater skirt, maxi, or boyfriend jeans.  Experiment with volume and fabrics and find your cozy, stylish weekend go to ensemble.

Leather Track Pants

Welcome to part two of my incredible Fashion Week experience.  To kick off fashion week I went for leather track pants and my go to classic black and white.  I must admit, I was skeptical about the leather track pant, I mean it is a pretty strange combo.  The name, “track pants” implies you are on your way to the gym probably in the 90s, but the track pant is no longer reserved for the gym and is now found on runways and thank God for that because the last thing I would ever want to do in these pants is work out……holy hotness!  Once I realized these pants are really just an oxymoron, I was able to embrace them to the fullest extent and not surprisingly fell in love.

Stellar in Stripes

Stripes are everything this season, making them a sartorial summer staple.  Stripes are so wonderful because they are so easy to make your own and almost act as a neutral.  Whether you choose to go with the preppy nautical stripes, punky 90s stripes, or the chic Parisian stripes you simply can’t go wrong.

Cropped tops are everything this season. This is an unbeatable and chic combo.
