Roxy

pink skater dress with denim jacketI’m in LOVE with ROXY! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a “thing” as much as I do my new favorite crossbody handbag. I just think she’s the most adorable handbag in the world. If I can’t have fun with fashion, then I don’t want to be a style blogger!! Honestly, she was a bit of a splurge, but I just couldn’t help myself (use code SPICEITUP for an additional 25% off). Some people have pets, I have Roxy 🙂

Asides, proclaiming my love for Roxy, I love being on spring break. I know it’s Thursday and it’s my first post of the week, but I’ve been “relaxing” or at least trying to. Although, I would have preferred to be on vacation, I’ve been laying low at home. Most days I’ve been catching up on more reading and I saw season one of Stranger Things – so creepy. I know I’m behind on popular culture, but that’s what break is all about, right?!

Back to spring fashion! I’ve also done a lot of spring cleaning and listed a bunch of items in my closet. A good closet clean is great because I’m trying to wear my clothes as much as possible without buying new items. While doing so, I found my pins and spruced up my denim jacket. How cute is this cassette pin my sister got me from Paris last year! I’m obsessed. And this blue nail polish is from Paris too. The lizard is from Greece and the flower pin is from an old Nanette Lepore jacket that I’ve had for years. I don’t think Roxy minds sharing this outfit post with those friends. Now, if only spring break would last forever…

Leather Skirt

smiling in a leather skirt

gap leather skirt and madewell side tie cropped shirtIt’s back to wearing leather skirts and tights… Chicago, please make up your mind on who you truly want to be. No more of this back and forth cold to hot all within a day. Anyway, at least I like my leather skirt that I’ve had for almost ten years! The thing about this skirt is that it still looks new and in season. It’s good to invest in a piece like this because as you can see for yourself, it’s timeless. I’m also happy that I can still fit in it – makes me feel young 😉 Are there any pieces in your closet that are timeless?

Fall 2016 Must Haves

standard September 14, 2016 Leave a response

fall-2016-must-haves-5Fall 2016 is quickly approaching and to prepare for the season (even though I don’t want it to come) I’ve made a list of some must haves. A good leather jacket (options) and leather handbag (options) are great pieces for your wardrobe. I can’t even tell you how old this leather moto jacket is because I’ve had it for so long! Although it might be a splurge for a leather jacket and handbag, they’re really an investment and you’ll get a lot of wear out of them.

A great fitting pair of jeans and booties are also fall musts. I love wearing a classic pair Levi’s and just a simple tee – effortless and comfortable. The temperature is still hot out, so I opted for open toes booties today.

What are some items on your fall 2016 must have list? I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comment section. fall-2016-must-haves-2fall-2016-must-haves-3fall-2016-must-haves-4fall-2016-must-haves-6fall-2016-must-haves-1COACH c/o: Handbag // Gap: Jacket (option) // Levi’s: Jeans (option) // Nine West c/o: Shoes // LOFT: Sunglasses // Kate Spade: Earrings // White Tee (option) // Hermes: Bracelet (option) // Essie: Fingers: Ruffles & Feathers Toes: Butler Please
