How to Dress like a Top Fashion Blogger!

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see." ~ Confucious

Happy Monday sweetie pies! I hope you guys have an awesome and productive week. You ever come across bloggers/style stars and wonder how they can pull off even the most insane outfits? I get a lot of fashion inspiration from bloggers - I love seeing personal style and it definitely influences my personal style. Fashion bloggers always seem to have the most unique and fabulous pieces but what makes them style stars is how they put looks together. Well envy no more, I am going to share my top tips on how to dress like a fashion blogger!

1. Confidence is Key!
One reason bloggers always look so awesome is because they are confident in their own skin and it shows! Make sure to love yourself and believe in yourself just as you are, then the rest will follow.

2. Basics that are not so... BASIC
Bloggers know and understand the importance of having those basics (ie: solid tees, a pair of dark and light wash jeans, a black bag) Those pieces that help lay the foundation for an outfit. It is important to have these pieces and I would even go further to say that is okay to splurge on these pieces. Not only will these pieces be great foundation for your #OOTD's but also will transcend through all seasons. I will leave some of my personal suggestions below. 

3. Upgraded Essentials
I firmly believe in pieces such as white button down, a trench coat, etc. but what makes these pieces stand out on a blogger lie in the details. Fashion bloggers are often very detail oriented and that shows in their style. Instead of getting a plain jane white button down, opt for one with embellishment or embroidery. I would suggest to not go too overboard with the details otherwise it will be hard to find multiple ways to style it. Fee free to check out these suggestions below. 

4. The Secret is in the Accessories
I DEFINITELY have more accessories than I do clothes. You guys already know I am a sunglasses junkie. It is not just to protect my eyes but sunglasses definitely elevate your look. It is such a simple way to add to your look. Sunglasses, jewelry, scarves, belts, shoes and hats all are great accessories to have on standby just to give your look a little something extra. Check out this post from last week where I share how to let your accessories do the talking for your look.

5. Don't Limit Yourself!
Bloggers wear exactly what they want. Don't allow yourself to be put in a box - in fashion and in life. If there's a trend or a certain item of clothing that you want to try? Go for it! The most memorable bloggers are the ones who are usually the most bold and the most unique when it comes to their personal style. 

6. Dress for You!
Wear what makes you feel good - what makes you feel like the best version of you! You are the one that has to live in your body and live your life so do what makes you happy! I promise you, when you dress for yourself, it does wonders for your confidence! (See Keypoint 1 for reference.)  

7. Take Risks
Don't be afraid to mix prints, textures, trends and more! You may even surprise yourself. Like I have said on multiple occasions, some of my best looks have been from just experimenting. 

8. Develop an Eye for Details
As I mentioned earlier (see #3) bloggers often have quite the eye for details and snagging the most fabulous and high quality pieces. If you can invest, I would advise to invest in your basics because those pieces you wear the most. However if you can splurge on a few nice pieces I definitely suggest going for it.

9. Maintenance
Not only does a blogger do an excellent job at maintaining her never-ending wardrobe but also maintains her appearance. It is important to top bloggers to make sure that their hair and nails are cared for. I am not saying that you have to spend mega bucks to look good but make sure to clip those split ends. Have your nails polished or not at all. (I personally can't stand chipped nails, it can look really tacky!) Make sure to keep yourself looking nice and put together. Feel free to check out these suggestions for nail polishes that I personally love.

10. Have Fun!
Remember that dressing should be fun! Your style should be an extension of who you are. Let your creativity and self-expression shine! Those things are so important because those things will transcend when people look at your photos Talk about #OOTD #Goals!!!!

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
