The Pantone Fall Color You Should Be Wearing

Hi Loves.
For today’s post I wanted to share with you this look and also how I have incorporated one of Pantone Fall trending color, Flame Scarlet. As an influencer, I really like to keep on trend with everything. I do not necessarily partake in all trends but, I have to at least be in the know.

I love incorporating trending colors in my outfits and home decor. For this Fall, I really gravitated toward Flame Scarlet color. I picked these pants up at H&M while at the mall one day. I instantly knew I wanted them and that they would serve a chic pick for the trending color. I’ve got another pair of layered bell pants of this color too. If you follow my Instagram, you can see me wearing them here and here.

This gorgeous trench coat is from Lark & Ro. It’s such perfect trench for Fall and I can tell you the durability will be endless. I wore these gorgeous flats from Asos (sold out)- similar here and bow sleeves Who What Wear top (I’m obsessed Who What Wear Collection). I finished off this look with YSL sunnies and Louis Vuitton Vintage cross-body (similar here). 
Hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving. 
have a great week, Loves.



The Chicest Office Holiday Party Look

This post is sponsored by Macy's. All Opinions are 100% my own. 
Hi there, Loves!
In the spirit of the holidays, I had to share this post with you all. I'm always in dresses or skirts and sharing the trendiest looks with you. I was thinking the other day that I should share with you guys a chic, trendy, and, fabulous office party look. Many of you know I do work full-time in a government job. This means, there is some sort of conservative approach to what I wear on a 9-5 basis. However conservative for me does not and will never mean boring. To be honest I'm the gal in the office that is dressed up every-single-day. It's just who I am and I have always been like that. Now that the holidays are upon us, there are a few office parties that take effect and I love it. I decided on this particular day to wear this gorgeous Anne Klein poncho sweater top, and Anne Klein skinny stretch pants and a classic black pump. I shopped them from Macy's.  A few pieces of accessories there and there and viola!!! 
As you can tell, my look is still modest, yet trendy, chic, and fab. This was a daytime office party and I had another evening party, and this look transitioned perfectly for the second party. 
Of all the pieces I am wearing this Anne Klein top stands out. It has the cutest dazzle stones and fabulous shawl-like look which adds perfect dress up and festive vibe for the holidays. 
I got so many compliments on this top that I am also considering gifting two people this top. Sometimes we have to pay attention to things that people say they like and their reaction to them, especially around the holidays. I listen and look out for cues and I know this will be a great gift for two of my friends. 
I have a feeling you're falling in love with this look especially this top as much as I have. Go ahead and grab yourself one before they sell out. 
Happy Holidays, Loves.



The Most Functional Decor Piece In My Home

 Happy Friday, Loves!
I wanted to share this quick post with you regarding the most functional decor piece in my home. Yes, it's my floor length mirror. I absolutely love this mirror. When we moved into our condo last year, a floor length mirror was on top of my list. I really wanted something that was both decorative and functional. It sits in my bedroom at one side of my bed and, It's severs as a functional and decorative piece. I oped for this mirror as opposed to the traditional night stand.  
Once I get dressed, I can stand alongside my bed or further back towards my closet and see my look head to toe before heading out. Another reason for me placing my mirror here was that I have excellent natural light flowing in form my bedroom window. That way, I can see clearly what I am wearing or how I look. 

I highlight my mirror by placing my bedside basket with extra blankets. It adds a nice touch of chic to the space and take away the bland look of simply placing the mirror only. This mirror also has a nice gold and cream design which compliments my bed and ties in with some of the color tone of the painting above my bed. 
I wouldn't quite call myself a minimalist but, I enjoy clean, chic, and simply look to my living space.

Here are a few options if you're thinking about getting a floor length mirror- Here, Here, Here & Here or check out services such as Havenly for amazing interior design help.

Havenly is a trusted site where you can get design help from actual professional interior designers. They will literally do all the design work and recommend products etc for your home.  

I'd love to know what decor piece you have in your home that you absolutely love or what piece is multi-functional for you. A pull out sofa sleeper, storage ottomans? Do tell. 
Thanks for reading, Loves.



The Holiday Giftspiration Guide For Everyone

The post was sponsored by PayPal. All Opinions are 100% my own. 

Hi, Loves!
I do not know about you but I am so ready for the holidays. There is so much to look forward to during this time of year. From the weather change, the foilage, the food, the sound of holiday music, laughter with friends and family. Oh, I could go on and on. My favorite thing about the holidays, is gift shopping and giving. Yes, I am an avid gift shopper and I take pride in getting most, if not all of my holiday gift shopping done early. 
With that said I figured I would share my giftspiration guide of some amazing gift options for all your loved ones, from PayPal Holiday Giftspiration Guide.  This was perfect for me as they had already handpicked some amazing items and I easily covered gifts for myself, a few friends, and some of my family members. 
I also loved that this guide isn't overwhelming because, it can be so hard sometimes when shopping online and having way too many options, especially around the holiday season. 
I got this Winter Votive Candle for my sister. We both share a love for candles and I know she will love the cinnamon mixed with clove scent. I instantly knew this was the one I was going to pick for her from the list. This also make a great gift for a coworker, a casual friend, or in-laws. You simply cannot go wrong with candles. 
If you are gifting a child a gift this holiday, I want to encourage you to gift them one of these amazing Cuddle & Kind Hand-Knit Dolls, from the PayPal Holiday Giftspiration Guide. What is so amazing is that for each of these dolls you buy, you help provide 10 meals to children in need. What a great way to gift a gift that keeps on giving. I'm actually considering getting a few more of these for all the children in my life. This Benedict The Bunny Hand-Knit Doll is not only for kids, it's also a great and fun choice for adults. 
This Stylewe Bell Sleeve Midi Dress is so glam and fabulous I had to get it for myself. The sleeves are just so beautiful and I know it will make the most fabulous statement at a few holiday parties this year. I already have at least ten invites in my email and I will sure be wearing it to a few. It's so easy to style, I can simply switch up my hair, shoes, and accessories. I already know a few of my girlfriends are going to fall in love with it. This would be a great choice for any chic female friend or family member as a gift. They will absolutely be happy with it. 
When I saw this Aldo Zeralle Hand Bag, I instantly knew this was the choice for my mom. I loved being able to make the right decisions for my closet family members. My mom is going to love this bag. It has the perfect touch of chic and fabulous. Loves, here goes my dilemma though, I wanted the bag for myself too. So, I got one for for myself. After all it is the holidays, right?!.
I also shared it with some of my girlfriends and they were so excited they plan of gifting this gorgeous bag to their friends and families too. Oh, the beauty of the holidays. 
And let's not forget the men in our lives. Our husbands, boyfriends, dads, brothers, uncles, nephews, cousins-this guide has them covered, too. These Hawes & Curtis Dress Shoes had my guy's name written all over it. My guy is very stylish and I knew he would absolutely love them. I really wanted to wrap them and put them under the tree later but he is the kind of guy who doesn't mind knowing what he is getting for Christmas. So, I asked him to get dressed on our recent date night and, to wear his new shoes so I could snap a few pictures to share with you all. They are so classy and I bet you these will last him a very long time. Go ahead and snag a pair for the man or men in your lives. No matter their style, these are great classics to gift and own. 

Loves, I hope you caught the holiday bug after reading this post and that you will be a practical and early gift shopper this year. Trust me, this will take so much stress off your shoulders and you will be able to relax and bask in the beauty of the holidays. All you have to do is simply head over to the PayPal Holiday Giftspiration Guide and select items that you know your loved ones will love. I promise you, there is an option for everyone in your life. 
And while we're in the spirit of sharing and giving, go ahead and share or send this post to your friends and family so they can also get a head start with their holiday gift shopping. Remember, sharing is caring. 
Let me know what you plan to get or what you ended up getting. 
Happy Holidays to you and your families. 



Denim Classics & The Trendiest Mules

 Hiya, Loves. 
Popping in quickly to talk about this super chic street style look and how easy it is to make your way through Fall in affordable trends, specifically, mules
I had partnered with Lee on an Instagram post and had some extra shots left over and thought I would share this look with you all. Lee is such a classic brand and I absolutely love their clothing. They are great quality and, most important, have effortless movement capability. Both Tee and Jeans are from Lee and my bag is Angela Roi.

Now, if you haven't seen mules all around social media or in person then I can safely say you don't follow or notice trends. Ain't nothing wrong with that. However, if you are looking to hop on a trend this fall I would absolutely suggest getting yourself a pair of mules. Also, do remember that when it comes to  trends, you really do not need to spend a lot. Trends come and go so you want to save your coins for more meaningful and classic pieces such as these Lee jeans I am wearing.

My mules are from Who What Wear Collection from Target. I am so obsessed with Who What Wear clothing. They are chic, affordable and absolutely trendy. They are right up my everyday shopping price point. The one thing I can tell you about these mules are that they are comfortable. I wore them while I was in New York for Fashion Week and they were a breeze. Grab yourself a pair now (they also have them in black suede) and thank me later. 
 Have a great week, Loves.
