Linear

02stripespants
My black and white pairing has gotten more serious as of late and I have a feeling that it will only get worse (or should I say better?) when fall comes around. These pants though, what can I say? I am completely smitten by them! The high waist and vertical stripes are flattering, the material is light and comfy, and there is something quite chic about pairing trousers with heels. I dressed up this simple look with some statement jewelry... the shield glam knuckle ring by Boera that I can't seem to stop wearing and this stunning gold cuff by Blossom Box with black and white stones.

You Make Me Coco

1
Wait, what? Is it really September already? Starting this month off with a beauty post... For awhile, I was skeptical of the idea of scrubbing coffee grounds all over myself which seems to be a phenomenon as of late. It just seems very messy but then I remember all those homemade hair masks I have concocted with ingredients such as honey, eggs and avocados and I am like "ok, let's try this coco thing out!" Here's my verdict... not only does this SkinnyFoxDetox coconut coffee scrub makes my skin feel super soft, it also smells heavenly! Make sure you don't eat it though, no matter how tempted you are!

Today's Me

01mc
When it comes to personal style, I have gone through many different phases. Haven't we all? This past weekend I had the chance to shoot with Marie Claire for an upcoming feature and I wanted to create a look that best fits my style today. Something that screams me, something that I am proud to be associated with, and this is what I came up with... Neutral, but not head to toe in black. Never plain, I love to mix prints. Colors will always be there, but usually just a pop of it. In conclusion, I like to think of today's me as a chic gal with a bit of class and a bit of sass.

On the Dot

02piol
Finding garment that fits has always been a challenge for me since I am quite petite. It is especially difficult for things to have the right length, dresses that are supposed to be above the knees always hit my knees and pants with an ankle length is regular to me. I can resort to shopping at Asian sites since their clothes are made for the small Asian frame but those are usually of cheaper quality. Luckily, PIOL exists! You can now create your perfect go-to dress from a great of selection of fabric, silhouette and details. Mine is a sleeveless draped empire dress with a midi length and a high tie neck in lovely tiny dots. I love how it can look modern but also vintage depending how you style it. Here I am a little bit of both with my wide brim fedora hat, crossbody bag, and my leather and spotted haircalf flats.

Let's Talk Business

01BTS
And just like that summer has come to an end... Whether you are going back to school or heading back to work, it's time to pull yourself together and look more professional. I have teamed up with Old Navy and styled a few of their pieces to create a business casual look that will sure to leave a lasting impression. I am wearing a striped top, polka dots chiffon skirt, and a classic blazer. I complete the look with a bag I customized and designed myself (you can read about that here). Looking professional doesn't mean looking boring, you can have some fun by mixing prints and playing with colors. So, put those sandals away and grab a blazer!
