I’m backkkk! Grad school + working has been rough, but finally I have some free time for blogging and its one of my 2013 resolutions to blog more so get ready for some awesome fatshions!
NYC is full force into winter which means the weather is in the 20s and 30s. But alas, it isn’t too hard to stay cute and warm. This winter NYC has been all about the FAUX-FUR statement coat. This hooded faux-fur beauty from ASOS was perfect for me, and very very warm! If I wear it over 30 degrees I’m going to be sweating! Some similar options are: THIS, THIS, and THIS.
I am so obsessed with the peplum trend! Peplum creates a beautiful feminine silhouette on all body-types and sizes. If you haven’t already gotten into peplum, get to it: HERE, HERE, HERE!

It is finally beginning to feel like fall in NYC! Bring on cute blazers, leather jackets, tights and layers because I’m sooooo ready for fall fashion. Sweater Weather=Best Weather. I’ve had these ASOS leggings for a while and they are so cute, I always get compliments on them. I also finally found a chambray top I like with this Forever21+ $25 find. Chambray top with leggings, cute boots and a statement bag!? Sounds like the perfect NYC fall uniform. I am teaching at a preschool this year and finishing up grad-school at night so this fall is all about being fashionable and comfortable everyday [working with four year old’s is a very messy job!].
P.S. I’m obsessed with these boots, prepare to see them all the time!!!

I’m back! Sorry darlings, I just started working full time again as a preschool teacher and this summer I’m also taking grad school classes trying to finish my master’s… so I have been a bit busy! I just bought this dress from Forever 21+ and I had to share!
Its not easy staying fashionable when the temperature outside is over 90 degrees plus NYC’s 100% humidity… but here is how to make it work: Stick with a light dress and minimal accessories. Look for light breathable fabrics and pair them with a bright shoe. Here I styled this back chiffon cut out dress with a metallic pink belt from ASOS Curve and hot pink barbie like heels from Forever 21. Remember ladies, just because its hot out doesn’t mean we can’t be fashionable and comfortable!!

I know I’m super late on the neon trend but I was waiting for a really great neon statement dress… I found it! A neon pink skater dress with polka dot lace… could it be more me?!?!?! If only it had sparkles hehe. This dress seems like perfection but I had to get it tailored twice, it didn’t sit right on my petite torso [I’m 5’2”] and it needed to be taken in from the sides also. After all the tailoring I love it! I paired it with a black ASOS Curve bow belt and some fun Jeffery Campbell platforms.

Merry 1st of May everyone! It may be May but I have dug out my old tights yet again due to New York’s unpredictable spring weather. It may be chilly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress for spring, you just need a few extra layers. This is one of my favorite ASOS Curve dresses which I purchased last spring, all my friends have seen me in this dress during all seasons because its so versatile to dress up or dress down. Here I was on my way to class so I paired it with flats and my favorite jean jacket! I just made a few purchases from ASOS’ spring sale and I have some new pieces I’m really excited to share, stay tuned!

Here is another spring colored dress for spring. This coral dress is from last Spring ASOS Curve. I’m obsessed with this H&M black and white striped sweater with puffy sleeves, I want to wear it with everything!!! Normally, I’m totally anti-belts, but this ASOS curve skinny belt is small enough to put together a cute springtime look… and its PINK! This teal handbag I got at Century 21, its from Rampage and the perfect teal for color-blocking this season.

For an easy “effortlessly fabulous” outfit for a lunch or running errands its easy to look put together while layering. I paired these lovely ASOS Curve velvet panel leggings with a striped long sleeve top from forever 21. I completed the look with some statement wedges, a big scarf and heart shaped sunglasses. Its easy to look casual and chic during wintertime with some colorful accessories to keep cute and warm!

Just because its January doesn’t mean you cant turn up the heat with your wardrobe! While New York has been having several cold, dull, and dreary days you can always brighten your mood with some sparkle. These ASOS booties are the perfect glittery statement shoe. Here I paired my glitter booties with a polka dot City Chic top and a tulle skirt from GAP. Remember just because its cold doesn’t mean you have to hide all your favorite skirts, invest in a great pair of tights and pair them with some cute booties to keep you warm and stylish.

Taking your wedding look from day to night is easy. I went to my cousin’s wedding this weekend and I kept the same shoes and clutch with two dresses for a daytime look and a nighttime look. The first dress was for the wedding ceremony in a church. For this look I wore a flowy chiffon dress in royal blue with a necklace and bracelet from forever 21. This ASOS Curve dress was the perfect look for a daytime event, I LOVE the romantic flowy sleeves. The second dress was for the wedding reception, I wore a fitted midnight blue Adrianna Papell dress. The sweetheart neckline and mesh jeweled straps are gorgeous! With both looks I kept the same Jeffery Campbell platforms and my grey clutch is from Aldo.
