I have been eyeing up the whole PVC legging trend for a while now + decided it was time to finally give in…so here we are! I have to admit when I got these leggings, I didn’t know if I could pull them off but once I styled them with this 2 in 1 Blazer Jacket + reptile mules, it was perfection. Also, I feel like a bad b**** when I am wearing them haha Lately, I have been feeling a little down so when I can put on an outfit that makes me feel confident, I call that a total win!
This seemingly ordinary blazer has some added features, a soft lined hoodie! So you can go from the gym to the office without needed multiple pieces to change into. The blazer is chic and professional and the hoodie is ideal for community, running out for a lunch break etc. You get 2 pieces for the price of 1!
Ok, I am OBSESSING over these reptile mules. They are sold out but I found similar options here + here. I think they add a little sass + edge to every look.
This Gucci Soho Tote is an oldie but a goodie. I used to wear it all the time when commuting to the office in NYC. It is a great bag for the office or traveling + you can buy them from various second hand retailers since the style has been discontinued.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! My boyfriend + I spent it relaxing, playing some of our favorite board games + catching up on one of our favorite shows, Impractical Jokers (if you haven’t watched it yet, I highly suggest you do, it is hilarious!) I was also doing a lot of research this weekend on what type of content ya’ll are into + I saw Tips, Tutorials + How To’s were amongst the top views recently so I am planning some exciting content in the coming weeks that will be more of just that! Stay tuned :p
Meanwhile, let’s get back to today’s post, this cute Tart Collection’s dress which is perfect for work or play!
I am truly loving this dress! I love the fun print along with the halter style. I feel the halter style looks flattering on almost everyone if you ask me! This dress is also super comfortable :p
I styled this dress with my favorite GiGi New York crossbody bag. What I love about this bag is that it fits all of my essentials + looks good! The quality is amazing too!
My shoes are one of my favorite’s…the white ankle strap heel trend matches with almost everything + they are super comfortable + make your legs look sexy 😉 Who doesn’t love that…am I right?!
It is officially spring + that means new dresses, lightweight jackets + open toe shoes (oh wait…I think I wear these year round anyways hehe :p). I love a simple dress with a denim jacket layered over it since it is such an easy go-to look, just throw it on + you are ready for anything. I wore this Tart Collections dress in Florida and it was perfect for the warm weather during the day + the cooler weather at night with a jacket over it. Tart Collection has great styles whether it is outerwear, blouses, dresses + pants and beyond (plus they range from regular to plus size and are available at Nordstrom + a few other retailers)!
I am obsessed with this dress because it is a great print for spring + lightweight. There are a bunch of similar styles as well in different color variations, prints etc.
I am also loving cork heels for spring since they are great to style with a dress, skirt or jeans + the cork style matches with every look. My go-to bag for running errands or heading out with friends is this Gucci camera bag (similar).
I am currently in total spring cleaning mode packing my current place + moving into my new place (this week is moving week) BUT I am also wanting to stock up my wardrobe for spring…not shopping while moving is so difficult let me tell ya haha :p
Luckily this outfit was put together with signature pieces I have had for years. I honestly feel a denim jacket is one of those key pieces you need in your wardrobe that will last you years! Mine has lasted me through high school all the way to now 🙂
Happy Friday Babes! Guess what…It’s OFFICIALLY FALL! Yesterday was the first day of fall so that means it’s time to start styling some great fall ensembles that are stylish yet warm and cozy at the same time (although in LA I don’t really need to be ‘warm and cozy’ hehe :p). Since LA is actually experiencing 90 degree temps at the moment (no joke haha) I decided to mix some fall pieces with some summer ones! I teamed up with three brands that are on my ‘Must Shop List‘ of the moment…Tart Collections, GiGi NY + Restricted Shoes!
I have a bit of a love obsession with faux fur vests (honestly I can figure out a way to style them year round haha :p), so when Tart Collections sent me their Gabriel Vest I instantly fell in L O V E (plus if you use code –FALLMELISSA15 for 15% off) ♥ So despite the warm LA weather, I decided to pair this chic vest over a simple sweater (I love the length and the shaggy design since it is flattering and not puffy which can sometimes make you look a little bigger). My lightweight pullover sweater is from Target + it is only $6!! No joke, $6 — making it the perfect sweater for early autumn layering!
Now time for fall accessories! My new chunky heels (perfectly on trend for fall 2016) are from Restricted Shoes. They are called the ‘Gossip’ heel + here is the gossip 😉 They are comfortable, stylish + are great for work or play…I am able to wear them all day without experiencing any pain or discomfort (yasss) AND they are simple to be styled with dresses, skirts, jeans + more!
My new fall clutch is from my fav handbag brand straight from my hometown on Long Island (#represent haha), GiGi NY! This is their new Stella Fold-over Clutch in gray. It comes with a removable crossbody strap if you choose not to wear it as a clutch and it has room for all of your essentials (making it ideal for weekend adventures or even a Girl’s Night Out)!
The pair of shoes below are similar, but you can shop my exact pair from Restricted Shoes HERE AND you can use code – MISSY25 for 25% off site wide!
