Fashion Fruit

16 Aug

Be a pineapple: stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside.

I’m a firm believer that you should not just be like a pineapple, but you should wear them too. Because, life is always more fun with pineapples. 

When I stumbled upon this maxi skirt from eShakti, it was love at first sight. It pairs well with a tucked-in blouse or bodysuit. Plus, it has pockets, which is a major bonus. Pineapples + pockets = perfection. 

These gold leaf earrings are one of my summer favorites. They are so dainty and elegant. Since they aren’t heavy, I have been wearing them with practically everything.

Doesn’t this outfit make you want a pina colada? Well, what are you waiting for?!

Yes Way Chambray

1 Aug

Are you still wearing the same out-dated clothes to work, on repeat? Does your 9-5 style need a little sprucing up?

Get rid of those old-school pants. Throw away your worn out go-to skirt. And donate those passé dresses.

Now is the time to invest in higher end, versatile pieces. When you wear something multiple times per month and the cost per use is practically $0, it’s ok to splurge. These basics serve as the foundation for building great outfits – and allow you to mix less expensive items, gracefully. 

For example, these Diane von Furstenberg pants are the best closet staple ever. Pair them with heels for the office and wedges for the weekend….perfect for work or play. Just mix with a reasonable chambray top, deck yourself out in some chic jewelry, and add a trendy affordable bucket bag (this Topshop style is only $32).

Set yourself up for fashion success. Invest in a few key pieces and build your outfits from there. When your morning alarm sounds, you’ll be excited to get dressed!
