Fuzzy Wuzzy

If you’re living on the East Coast, you know that winter is still very present. I’ve learned over the years to try and make friends with this horrible cold and dress more appropriately. Luckily, there are some cute trends out this F/W that are inspiring to me. My favorite trend that works with my personal style is the “fuzzy” sweater. Besides the warmth, the fuzzy look gives it a very cozy and angel- like feeling. I’ve seen these sweaters all over the place but the ones below are some of my personal favorites. So, this winter you can stay fashionable and warm. 🙂

Ciara looking lovely in pink 🙂 Personally, I like these types of sweaters in more pastel colors or even just a white. It adds a more innocent look to it.

Winter White Trend

One of my current Fall/Winter trend obsessions is Winter White. There is just something so chic and elegant about wearing white that I just love. I always used to think of wearing all white in the summer time (All-White Parties!) but after seeing so much of this trend on the runway and translated into winter wear, I’m starting to be a believer. 

I absolutely love color (especially in the dreary winter months) but for me, white is even more powerful than a bright color sometimes. Pair it with a really dark lip color and gold accessories and you’re all set.

Some Winter White Inspiration:

Trend Alert: Fringe Fest

There are some fashion trends that I just simply can’t get tired of. This spring/summer fashion trend that I am obsessing over is FRINGE! I absolutely love the movement, fun, free spirit, boho feel that fringe adds to an outfit. Any time I wear it, I just want to move and be free. Show off the FAB. movement and be noticed! The newest trend that I’ve spotted lately is fringe accessories, but not just your average cross-bag fringe, I’m taking elaborate fringe necklaces and long earrings! Yes! So forget the jacket and bags, fringe is taking over this season on a whole other level— and No complaints from me 🙂 ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Trend Alert: The High Slit

When the weather gets warmer, the slits get higher. This season I am seeing a lot of ultra high slits on jersey dresses and maxi skirts and I have to say, I’m loving it! It’s important to know what part of your body you like to accentuate and if your part are your legs then this is the trend for you! I love the idea of the high slit maxi dress because it reveals a little bit of skin but not too much. There is a fine line between classy sexy and just trashy. My rule for this kind of stuff is to cover the top if I’m showing the bottom part of my body. Whether it fits in your style or not, you should try these sexy dresses for a night out with your girls, date night, or even a concert night.

See below for some looks!

NY Fashion Week Recap 2013!

Hey Naturalista’s! After a whirlwind of NYFW events I finally was able to compile some of my fav. looks and times from the shows I was able to attend with my dear friend and Blogger, Martha Luna (www.mdollnyc.com) Check her blog out!

NYFW was everything I imagined and more! It was a jam-packed day full of shows back to back and many, many familiar faces in the fashion industry. Super great place to network, too. I met a lot of designers, bloggers, videographers, models, and more!! Everyone was just so friendly and super sweet. Really just trying to get their business card out there and get their name out to as many ppl possible.

Besides the free goodies and VIP, my favorite part was def. the actual runway shows. The music and papparazzi really set the vibe to the show. As the models walked out on the runway wearing some of the most beautiful designs for Fall I began to feel what living out a dream really feels like. It was truly everything I had anticipated and more! My favorite show was the Monique Lhullier show, I didn’t get good pics b/c I was so just so intrigued and in the moment. PS. the shows are super short! They last about 8-12 minutes. So can you imagine? Working on a line for about 6 months for a 10 min. presentation with a million ppl watching?? Talk about pressure!

Check out some of pics. to give you a bit of what I felt on Day three of NYFW at Lincoln Center, NYC.

Army in Style

This season the military look is everywhere! From the combat boots, to the vintage flair jackets, camo pants, and even some army inspired accessories are coming from runways to stores. Combat boots have always been a staple  in my closet but this season I’m all about the jackets!! For men/women this style is just perfect. Over a chunky sweater, layer it with scarves, big earrings and jeans tucked in your boots- perfect Saturday brunch outfit if ya ask me.

*My hint– working in NYC I’ve found all the little gems and secrets and I’m sharing this one with my naturalista’s .. Google “ARMY STORES” around your hood.. These spots are wayyyy cheaper than those jackets you will find at high end stores. More authentic and vintage too 😉

Take a look at some of my inspiration for this post!

Sneaker Diva Fly

As much as I’m obsessed with summer and the gorge weather, one of my other fave seasons is FALL. Mostly because of the amazing fashion and NYFW, of course 🙂 The hottest trend right now is the wedge sneaker. I must admit that although I always like to be fashion forward, not all trends are suitable for me. I pick and choose what I like the best and add my own flair to it. Being confident within yourself is the best way to rock a trend 😉

This new twist to the sneaker is an inspiration of the fab Isabel Marant. Totally puts the chic and edge into a sneaker. Every store is re-creating them for a range of decisions for us fashionistas. Steve Madden, Aldo, Urban Outffitters are just some of the major stores you can find them. With different colors and textures the possibilities are endless!

I have my eye on leather black for this Fall.. check out some of my faves and how celebs we love rocked them:

Point Em’ Out

My newest obsession is the metallic pointed toe heel! Super chic and classy with a touch of edge. I absolutely love this shoe with a skinny jean/pant or even a pencil skirt for a more professional look that can turn into a night out. I’m all the about the subtle details making an outfit stand out and these babies do exactly that! Ladies, if heels are just not your thing, you can opt for a cute pair of flats as well. Same idea with no heel, either way you’re stylin’ naturalista fashionista. 😉

Get inspired…

Pop of Neon!

Neon colors for the summertime are truly necessary! Whether it be on your nails, shoes, accessories, or clothes- it’s a pop that your wardrobe needs! Sometimes just incorporating a couple of neon pops to an existing outfit that you already have will add that summer flair you need. Neon  nail color is super fun too! From colors like pink, green, purple, and orange the possibilities are endless! Another fave of mine is neon color-blocking. Remember to not over-do it though, pick two very bold colors and leave your outfit with that.Neons are so bright and bold, they set a statement already. Most important tip is to have fun with the colors, and go with your mood 🙂 Add some color and splash into your life!! 🙂

Inspiration below 🙂

Color me Bright

Bright colors are my absolute favorite! They are so fun and make me feel so happy when I wear em’ This spring colored denim pants are the biggest trend. They are so funky and versatile I just love them. Make the pants the statement piece or mix and match for a funky, outspoken outfit. Whatever your mood fits. Colorblocking with the pants can be so major or just pair it with a simple white t and accessorize (which I love as well!) The possibilities are endless with these bright and bold pants, find the color that fits your style and get ready for spring!

Check out some pics. to get you color bright inspired!

And, of course your naturalista fashionista truly rockin’ my bright tangerine colored pants at a basketball game. I made the pants be the bold piece so I simply paired with a v neck and a circle scarf. I accessorized with fun shoes and jewelery and I was all set!
