OOTD: Neoteric Knits

I don't always style in knits, but when I do, I like them bold and bright! Imagine my delight whilst shopping through the Zara isles to find this vibrant look. The pairing of prints and bold colors is a new combination for me, but I can't not resist the opportunity to throw my stylish caution to the wind and slay. 

I finished to look with my favorite pair of No.21 jeweled mules and sunnies from Forever21. The perfect mixing of high-end designers and fast fashion. Here's to trying new things!

OOTD: Layers of Slay

Don't be afraid to layer your style, especially in the warmer seasons. Light layering adds depth and dimension to your look. 

In my stylish opinion, great layering starts and ends with a good leather jacket. My closet is full of them. In every color, mostly in a cropped tailored fit. I tend to shop Zara for all my leather outwear as they manage to present the most fashionable, on-budget trends. 

For me, the look is best when the foundation of my layering is a basic, something build-able, like this tank dress from Naked Wardrobe. Then you add the flair! In my case, a mesh polka dot tank dress from Boohoo that sat in my closet for over a year. 

So that is my layering formula: A Staple (leather jacket) + A Basic (white dress) + Some Flair (Mesh Dress) = SLAY!

OOTD: Slay De Verde

Yes, this dress has pockets. And, yes! I do love it!

This full skirt dress is a full style score! Purchased from Zara, the dress is a timeless piece that can easily transition into most any event setting. Dinner with friends, YES! Brunch date with bae, YES! Summer Festival at the church? Check, CHECK!

As a note, the dress comes with a matching cloth belt, however, I swapped it out for something a bit more elevated. 

What a perfect find. It managed to encompass all the slay a girl needs. Sophistication, effortless style, feminity, color and POCKETS! This dress will remain in my wardrobe for years to come.

OOTD: The New Classic

A new take on a classic. 

When I saw this plaid dress on Fashion Nova, I immediately knew I had to have it! Plaid, found in many forms, lends itself to exude classic and timeless style. The dress marries sophistication with a trendy edge. And because the plaid pattern is not overpowering, I can easily wear this dress for decades to come. 

What an incredible find?! Thank you Fashion Nova. I'm a proud #NovaBabe.
