Lent- Social Media Challenge

      Hello Dazers! It's been six weeks since I gave up social media for Lent. I have learned a lot during this time.  It was very challenging in the beginning. There was a point in the first couple days where I wanted to quit and just hop on FB when I needed something to distract me. I pushed through and...well here we are! 


      Six weeks without social media..it's almost a death sentence to some of us media addicts. I can honestly say there was only one other thing I have given up that was harder and that was coffee. Cigarettes were easier to quit than social  media. This realization has lead me to see that I need to cool it on my social media lifestyle. 


      I found that I was still able to keep in contact with my true friends by text and email. I also don't believe I missed out on any life changing news. This experience has shown me I can step back from my outlets a little and get back to reality. 


     At first I couldn't relax without a secondary activity to keep me occupied while I was performing the first activity.  Now I am actually learning to slow down and enjoy the moment for what it is without having to share it with hundreds of my closest friends. 


I also noticed how extremely annoying it is to constantly have a conversation with someone who is looking at their phone. I think this experience will genuinely make me rethink my phone/ social media use.

Bringing back the 70's

Happy Sunday my fellow fashion lovers, I hope your weekend is coming to a close quite nicely! Sundays are a good day to reflect and this Sunday we want to reflect on an old trend that is making a big comeback!

Bell bottoms are a definite trend that you are sure to see this spring. Skinny jeans are on their way out and this wide legged trend are moving on in. 

I personally love this trend, as should other short girls! Paring bell bottoms with sky high heels is an easy way to make you look much taller. They can also be worn with any type of fashion style you prefer.

Throwback Thursday Work Edition

It is no secret that grunge is making a come back.. hard! Of course we all want a trip back to the 90's, but how do you wear this look to work without looking like your unemployed? 

Try this look on for size.
Try some black skinnies with a white and black striped shirt and a longer black suit jacket. Add some black shades to complete the look. The trick to this outfit is the shoes. By pairing this with some sky high heels you turn this from its street style home to office ready in seconds. Maybe just run a brush through your hair? 

One more day till the weekend and one more day of what to wear to work this week check back tomorrow for Friday's look.

Wednesday Wardrobe

Well you have made it half way through the week. Now the question is what to wear to work today?

Wednesdays can sometimes drag but you can lift  your spirits with a fun work ensemble.


 These two looks are a perfect way to perk up any Wednesday! Floral pants or leggings are a great way to spruce up a solid colored top. If its not warm enough to wear sandals where you live try a pair of nude or black heels. The finishing touches for this work day outfit would be a statement necklace and a boyfriend watch.



So far this week you are rocking your style! Check back tomorrow for some Thursday fashion action! 

Fashionably Late,

Edgy Floral

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 

Continuing with our weekly wear to work outfit posts, I bring you Edgy and Floral Tuesday. 


This is a perfectly adorable office look for a business causal work place. This feminine floral look with the edgy twist of a leather moto jacket on top is a huge trend being carried over from last couple of seasons. 

The trick to keeping this office friendly is making sure your skirt is not too short. There is a huge difference in office appropriate and skimpy. So keep it class and rock a pair of cute wedge or chunky heels to keep this look fluid. 

I hope you liked today's look. Check back tomorrow for a Wednesday outfit. 

Fashionably Late,

Keeping it casual

     As a new work week approaches us it's time to plan this week's worth outfits. Sunday is like a fresh start, you get to pick a new style for the week and rock it! 

     Office casual can sometimes be trick to navigate. Finding a middle point between comfort and office appropriate attire cam be challenging. So this week let's focus on some styles that can be great to wear to work! 

     This look is probably the best for Mondays, when your still thinking of the weekend. Try pairing a graphic tee with a skinny jeans and blazer, add some heels to crank up this office look! This is the perfect back to work outfit, fun and business appropriate. Add some some fun necklaces or a chunky watch to complete the look. 



     Check back tomorrow for a new look for Tuesday!

On to PPW, this week I was obsessed with women's fashion and this week is all about the details!

Usually bohemian styles are very causal but I think this look takes it up a notch and gives it a high fashion look. The fur vest and nude heel make this perfect for summers night out! Love love love!

Neil Young for Supreme Clothing Ad Campaign

Hello Dazers, happy hump day! 
 
Music and fashion are two art forms that are constantly surrounding our lives, and what better way to bring it together even more by using a music icon in your clothing company's ad campaign. 


Supreme which is a skate brand with a lot of street style looks has chosen Neil Young as for their newest ad campaign. The New York based company has featured other celebrities including 
Kate Moss, Lady Gaga, and Lou Reed.

Neil Young, singer, song writer and musician has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist and as a member of Buffalo Springfield. He can now ad fashion icon to his list of accomplishments.


I am sure we will see Mr. Young's ad plastered around NYC and LA in the coming months.
