 RUFFLES & BRIGHTS are really trending this season in tops, skirts & dresses…….

I’ve been loving all things ruffled lately and also adding some pops of bright color to my wardrobe…..I wore this bright red top out to brunch in Brooklyn this weekend & I’m loving how bold color can really brighten your mood on a bleary day.  There are so many great RED tops & dresses right now that can take you from a work day to night out to weekend look.

The Look #19-“Ruffled & Ripped” White Tops & Dresses with Denim & Bright Handbags…. #Outfitinspo for Spring ’17

It’s been so warm and sunny the past few days in NYC!

4de87daf09e2b502b3ecbb7b597f0306

I’m getting so excited for the NEW SPRING SEASON & thinking about all the fun tops and pretty dresses to wear when the weather stays warm for good. I know everyone has their “go-to” looks and special timeless favorites that they come back to time & time again….For me it’s always been the pretty white tops & dresses paired with denim that really sets the mood for me for early spring. My closet seems to be filled with cotton, chiffon & lacy little white dresses and tops that I never seem to tire of & I always LOVE to pull them out again at the first signs of spring. I think this is such a classic and feminine look that always looks fantastic & perfectly accessorized with gold jewelry and edgy leather accessories mixed with pops of color.

The off the shoulder trend is still going strong this season….as well as bell sleeves, ruffles and one shoulder style tops and dresses. Pair your ruffled tops with ripped denim & cool leather with soft lace….

Here is a recent #OOTD I wore for a lunch date that I posted on INSTAGRAM.

The Look # 15-Faux Fur & Ruffles- Winter Chic

Winter is here! And it’s so cold out! I’m spending my first winter in ages in NYC and it’s a bit of a shock to the system after so many years in sunny California. But still, it can be fun to bundle up when the temperatures drop. The super cold weather is no an excuse to stop looking cute, but still it can be a bit of a challenge at times.

This winter season I’m loving cozy faux fur jackets and the cutest sweaters with ruffles and lace-up details paired with denim and fun booties. There’s so much cute stuff out there in the stores right now…. Also, why not add some unexpected dashes of color to your winter outfits? Too much black & grey will leave you feeling drab, so throw in some shots of bold color with your neutrals to instantly lift up your mood. Then pile on chic layers and top off with your scarf, hat, gloves & a cool statement bag & you’re good to go…..

Here’s some inspiration to create your own winter casual look that will keep you feeling chic & warm….

THE LOOK: FUN. CASUAL. CHIC- “Faux Fur & Ruffles”

The Look #11- Bohemian Deluxe

The bohemian look gets an update with luxe velvet, rich jewel tone colors and bold floral and paisley prints. Pile it all on together with bold accessories, suede boots and fringe details for a Carnaby Street style meets Jimi Hendrix vibe.

Create your own eclectic look that makes a statement by mixing a floral prints dress with a  velvet jacket or a printed ruffle top with a suede skirt.

THE LOOK: GLAMOROUS. SEXY. CASUAL

You’ll be the ultimate “Foxy Lady” in these luxury bohemian looks for fall.

I hope you find some great style inspiration for what to wear this fall!

THE LOOK  #10- Pretty Edgy-Rockin’ Romance

Fall always seems like a good time to get a little tougher with what you are wearing…..think boots, leather jackets & heavy metal details on your accessories. But there’s another side to this fall season that’s just simply romantic. If you are like me and still holding on to that summer mood, you might want to make that transition to an autumn look filled with feminine details, ruffled blouses, lace fabrics and long flowing dresses……

1.LEATHER JACKET/  LPA      2. DRESS/ REBECCA MINKOFF    3.HANDBAG/ YSL  4.BOOTS/ TOPSHOP  5.HANDBAG/  MULBERRY  6. JEANS/  RAG & BONE (SIMILAR HERE)                         7.BALLET FLATS/ ZARA       8.BLOUSE/  ENDLESS ROSE   

These are the perfect looks to mix with some tougher pieces you probably already have in your closet. Go pretty and edgy by mixing a ruffled blouse with a motorcyle jacket, ripped jeans and boots. Or pair a long flowing dress with a studded jacket. Think leather and lace……and spiked metal with pink…….

I love this romantic but rock n roll feeling for creating an effortless personal style for the fall season.

I’m so looking forward to wearing silver studs, motorcycle jackets & washed out denim this fall. Also loving the look of dreamy flowing chiffon print dresses & tops with motorcycle boots.

I hope you like this outfit inspiration for a Romantic Rock n Roll inspired look for the Fall season…………..
