Blazers are one of those pieces that will always be in style and circle back every Fall. They’re a very versatile, classic clothing that can elevate just about any look. That is why an effortless-stylish blazer is one of my go-to fall staple pieces. Menswear Blazer have always been a huge fall trend for me each year. Like this perfect little number which can take you from work-wear to everyday casual. The color and texture is just perfect for Autumn. I love the sleek, classic fitted styles when it comes to balancing multiple meetings and running off for a coffee break.

From Professional Work-wear to casual everyday lifestyle, this menswear blazer will spice up your attire and polish up the usual dull boring look. Pair this blazer with your boyfriend or mom jeans, shorts, maxi or mini skirts for a more feminine, casual or relaxed style. What’s your favorite style Blazer? (longline, classic, studded, pattered etc) My favorite is the classic black, plaid and earth tones style and longline oversized blazers. Shop my Blazer Below.

Hi Darlings,

IT- BAG OF THE SEASON

The new Fall-It bag is here and its from one of my favorite brands who focuses on quality, artistry, and style -with a special emphasis on superior materials and intriguing textures. This bag has easily become one of my favorite fall-staples this year. The Mini Priscilla Satchel is so chic, luxurious and timeless. Its definitely the IT-Bag of the season. You can wear it as seen how I styled it here or with the removable shoulder strap as a shoulder bag. I am in love with the Pecan Melbourne color. It’s classy, warm, pairs great with stripes and neutrals and suitable for Autumn.

LEVEL-UP WITH STRIPES:

Stripe is definitely one of my favorite fall-staples. Out of all seasons, I love wearing stripes during Autumn. I find this pattern so captivating amongst fall foliage, moody backdrops and deep rich tones. A stripe pant suit set will certainly up your fall fashion and take it to next level. Like Polka-Dots, this pattern is so chic and classy. Stripes are a great way to add pattern while still staying within a neutral color palette.

PSL IS BACK

P.S. Did you guys know that my favorite Fall Drink is back? Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is finally back as of yesterday. I totally had to grab one on-the-go in the morning before they ran out in the afternoon. Gosh It was so amazing as usual. If you know me personally then you know I drink this 2-3 times a week or more once a year until its gone. lol

Thank You For Reading! 🙂

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

DSC_0702AANKNDSC_0223AK11DSC_0563ANNEKLEDSC_0769ANNEK2DSC_0720AANEKADSC_0727AK2

Hi babes,

Since Mother’s Day is pretty much right around the corner, I wanted to give you some gift ideas that fits just about every budget. I will be sharing my TOP5 Best Mother’s Day Gifts. When seeking out the best mother’s Day gift, it takes planning and can be quite the thought process which is better than anything last minute if you asked me. A mother is so dearing and the utmost important being in our lives and just for that alone, she deserves the best. Not necessarily saying that its all about the gift, because the gift of presence is much more important to me. That doesn’t mean that us moms doesn’t love to be showered with thoughtful gifts and sometimes, the quality and luxurious kinds.

 

WATCHES/JEWELRY:

I mean what Mom doesn’t love a great feminine time-piece thats both effortless and classy? Especially watches that are versatile, functional, affordable and features Swarovki crystals with diamond-accent like the one I’m wearing by Anne Klein. Its the perfect on trend accessory and the perfect Mother’s day gift without having to break the bank. She can also go for a special engraved “mama” necklace or charming earring set.

 

CAMERA’S:

See, this is where I also fit lol. As a mom, I’m constantly snapping pictures of my baby girls or creating some aesthetically pleasing content for a brand on both my DSLR or iPhone or simply photographing nature and satisfying sceneries. Making memories is one of the most fun and beautiful thing to me, so having a good quality camera and/or phone is very prominent. Bottom line is, Mom’s love taking pictures and always will so gifting your mother a nice compact camera (can range anywhere from 120- 1k+) is definitely an option worth exploring. Not to mention, she will always treasure this type of gift.

 

HANDBAG/LUGGAGE:

 

This genre is totes amazing! Every year, handbags are very popular gifts for Mother’s Day. I can see why. What woman doesn’t like a nice bag? Me, I love a good quality handbag and believe me its not always about splurging. You can get your Mom a nice quality designer bag such as this gorgeous tote from Coach, or this little number from Nordstrom or even this fabulous stunner from Michael Kors. These are all under $500 You’re still getting quality without splurging too much. Speaking of Splurge, theres nothing wrong with investing in a luxurious designer bag for me, I mean mom lol If you do splurge, I recommend two of my favorite hot pieces you can check them out here and here.

 

COFFEE/TEA SET :

If your mom is a coffee or tea lover, she would probably love to have some new coffee mugs, expresso machine and/or fancy little tea pot set. This sort of gift is very thoughtful, simple and affordable. Does your mom like coffee or tea?

 

SHOPPING SPREE:

Ok, maybe this one has my name written all over it too. lol Especially if I get to have an unlimited budget. lol Let me remove myself from the equation and continue. Moms love to be treated like a queen, after all, they deserve it for bringing us into this world and putting up with us in every way shape or form. Whatever your budget is, she will enjoy spending time picking out something she really like or always wanted. She may very well be the splurging type or very modest and old-fashioned. This way, she can pick out that skincare product on her own without having the thought of getting old come across her mind; if she decides to get that anti-wrinkle cream you were planning to get her, but wasn’t sure how she’d react to such gift. She may also want to grab some designer shoes, home decor item, who knows. Either way, shopping spree will never go out of style for women, especially moms.

 

…AND If your mom is far away due to distance/separation, you can go on a road-trip and drive up to see her, send her a thoughtful card and hand-written letter (Yes, people still do that!) or have some gorgeous fresh Teleflora bouquet hand-delivered to her that will instantly put a smile on her face. Remember, Love will always find a way.  Don’t forget to call your Mom and tell her you love her. Don’t wait until Mother’s Day.

P.S. I will be taking off Summer from blogging to travel to Disney World, go on road trips and spend quality time with my beautiful family. See you around Pre-Fall. Of course I’ll be back for my favorite season and birthday season-Autumn. Have a wonderful Summer. I will miss you darlings! XO

 

Love,

 

Natasha

Transitional Basics

DSC_0198BBMONOB

Despite Spring making its presence, the weather has been extremely unpredictable this year round which made it easier for me to stick with my layering techniques, outermost jackets and sweater dresses. One thing I love about this knit dress is the breatheability of the fabric so it feels lightweight, looks chic and an easy transitional winter-spring ensemble.

DSC_0209BMONO7

This little number was perfect for me to wear to a day filled with meetings. It can also pass for a common practice street-style look or an easily put together fashion editor style by adding the chicest pair of Celiné sunnies and the perfect statement earrings. And a statement heel doesn’t hurt either, especially when they match your earrings.

DSC_0254BMONO

Speaking of earrings, Statement earrings are one of my favorite ways to accessorize. It can transform a simple look or your everyday ordinary look and instantly elevate your outfit. By the way, check my instagram to see how you can score these exact special edition hand made, delicate stand-out statement earrings.

Hi, Darlings

As Autumn begins to slowly fade, Winter is quickly approaching. I’ll miss all of the beautiful colorful Trees as they burst in beauty with their crunching, crinkling leaves. Not to mention pumpkin spice and everything nice. In the midst of it all, I try to embrace the changes, the new season coming, us moving into a new home, hubby’s and I marriage anniversary and awaiting Christmas in a winter wonderland. It’s like a new adventure is beginning all over again.

DSC_0122AUT

WHAT I’M WEARING:

This loose knit sweater is perfect and it comes in three different colors. I went up a size to have more of a bigger oversize fit. This is my favorite color of the three for the current season. It’s so cozy and look just as good in person. You can dress it up and wear it or casually with jeans or joggers. P.S. It’s currently almost 50% OFF so better grab it before its gone.

I’m slightly becoming addicted to my OTK Boots that I’ve been wearing them on repeat. Unfortunately they sold out quicker than Usain Bolt but there are a few sizes still left in the grey which I also have. Its such a pretty soft color and can be worn both in Fall and Winter. Just keep in mind they aren’t snow boots. haha

MIDWEEK REFLECT

Hello My Darlings;

Hope your week is going swell! We have been so busy packing and cleaning for our next move which is happening very soon. Things are a bit chaotic and I find myself feeling overwhelmed and drained. My schedule is even more busier than ever now in addition to many new collaborations. Can’t wait to move into our new home and finally settle in. While moving can be stressful, it can also be fun, exciting and a new adventure.

 

WHAT IM WEARING:

 

I wore this look to the bookstore for a cafe date with hubby outside. It was perfect! I’ve been obsessed with berets for as long as I know; even more when Faye Dunaway rocked it the coolest in Bonnie & Clyde. Dressing up a classic black beret with a basic white turtleneck and monochrome printed skirt makes for an effortlessly chic French look. My otk boots was the icing on the cake. The Perfect Fall Staple. I’ve also styled basic tops with ripped denim and heels for a more casual polished look.

 

Speaking of Polish, I hope you guys aren’t getting tired of my Valentino Bag. I mean, its my favorite bag although I have some other coveted ones in my wardrobe, nothing compares to this one-yet! Sometimes I even turn it into a diaper bag.. it fits everything. Most of the time, I forget to change handbags because I’m so used to this bag and I’m always on-the-go. I know I can’t be the only one in the world with this problem. Do any of you have a favorite bag that you almost carry everywhere? How is the holidays coming along for you? Is your tree up and decorated yet? I love Christmas season. xx

 

Thanks For Visiting!

 

Love,

RECAP:

Hello Darlings;

How was your Thanksgiving break? This year we decided to stay home and not travel to extended family members since we are in the middle of moving again. Speaking of moving, I’m pretty excited about relocating. I mean, it comes with being an Army Wife. Elated to start yet another new journey with my beautiful family. P.S. If you watched my Instagram Story, then you saw that we made cornish hen with rosemary and took a break from the Turkey this year. It actually turned out pretty great.. 🙂

 

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Whoever said pom poms are only a summer-spring trend must have never seen me rock pom poms in the fall-winter. The obsession with this sweater began when I posted a preview shot of this look to my Instagram. I mean, I can understand why. This oversized  sweater has become one of my favorite wardrobe staple. It’s very versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. I prefer effortless looks so I styled it with a black wrap mini skirt and black velvet booties. It’s definitely a fashion must-have item. It comes in navy blue and grey-they sell out fast and will be restocked soon so just keep checking.

 

STYLLE TIP:

Whenever you go for a bold statement sweater, lose the jewelry or keep it minimal as possible. You want the sole focus to be about that statement piece. For a casual, relaxed look, pair it with a classic fit Levis jeans or whatever minimal brand jeans your prefer. Add a simple, white long sleeve shirt to your oversized knits/pullovers for an edgy-meets tomboy look.

Hi Darlings!

REFLECTING

 

Time has flown by so fast lately. In the blink of an eye Autumn is slowly fading, the leaves have fallen and Winter preparations had soon begun. I’m not ready to give up the crisp air, bonfires, pumpkin spice latte; the smell of autumn as I dance in the breeze and watch the wind twirl my hair -while the leaves speaks bliss to me. What a bittersweet moment in time, as I sit here, sipping some hot tea, reminiscing as I type this. If only I could pause Autumn in its richest and ripest phase. It’s my happiest season. Now we will be parting soon..

Hello Darlings,

So I’ve been mia for a short while here on the blog due to being under the weather. Very few people, as in close friends knew why. I was diagnosed with Pneumonia so I needed to take a break and focus on my well-being. I’m back because my progress is better and I’m just way to driven and persistent to stay away too long. Nonetheless, I do value my health and its indeed my top priority so lets not get it twisted.

I’ve wanted to share with you all this look from a couple weeks ago, especially since i’ve gotten plethora of questions about it initially on my Instagram. I’m big on oversize clothing in the Fall season, specifically oversize dresses, sweaters and jackets. Most of the time, they make great transitional pieces into Winter. Unfortunately, this oversize dress got sold out faster than Usain Bolt! Sadly, it came in three colors and they’re all gone. Hope you managed to snag one from when I first asked you to- in previous post, where I was wearing the other colors.

I’ve been rocking mustard and deep autumnal colors on repeat. You may have noticed this already on my Instagram. I love creating my own color palette like I did here without following the norm. I’m always brainstorming and inventing my own color combination. It’s an even greater feeling when you guys told me how much you loved it on my Insta.

Beret is one of my favorite hats to wear during the season. They’re so Parisian and chic and makes a great addition to almost any looks. Not to mention, they’re one of the most requested- trendy hats for the season. I have many different berets and colors for the remainder of autumn, even some to crossover with during the Winter season. If you know me, you already know I’m huge on Parisian Fashion so this will come to you as no surprise.

Velvet is so last season, NOT!!! You may have spotted some of the best velvet looks on the 2017 Prada Fashion Show. You will normally see this trend quite a bit during the Fall-Winter, whether clothing, shoes or accessories. I’m already pre-planning some of my velvet winter looks, especially for the Holidays. What about you guys? Are you loving the return of the velvet trend?

 

Thanks For Visiting!

 

Love,

 

Natasha
