Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning sunglasses

What's cooler than ice cold you ask? Olivia Palermo, of course! Every true fashion girl knows that no outfit is complete without the proper pair of statement sunnies, and the Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning Rose Gold Collection is just that. 

Like Olivia Palermo's street style, her Rose Gold Collection of sunglasses for Westward Leaning has just the right mix of sophistication and fashion forward edge. Both fashionable and functional, the mirrored rose gold lenses compliment every skin tone and hiding runny mascara and under eye circles in a pinch. With eight styles, there is the perfect eye-catching pair of sunglasses for every face shape, so the only thing left to do to rock the streets like Palermo is put on your favorite pair, drape your coat over your shoulders and strut.

Find the Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning Rose Gold Collection here and here.


Wear Now, Wear Later: Denim Midi Skirts

Button Front Denim Midi Skirt streetstyle

I'm shopping for clothing I can wear now and later and the trend on the streets that's a must try is a denim midi skirt. Wear it now with a chunky sweater and boots and then in the summer throw on a white tee and open toe pumps for a casual chic look. If you want to take the denim skirt a fashionable step further, look for a button front denim midi skirt and channel a 70s vibe without looking like you just stepped out of your aunt Thelma's closet.

Winter Trend: Colorful Fur Coats

Baby it's cold outside, and what better way to beat the chill then to wear something warm and cozy. I know, fur is not nice, blah blah blah... But it is so warm and luxe that the fashion crowd is taking it to new levels and trending bold colorful fur coats. Designers are also doing great faux fur coats these days, so you can get the look without the guilt. 

For the past few winters patchwork fur coats in multi colors and tones have been street style show stoppers. From fur bomber jackets to fur vests to classic chubby coats, these  trending styles will take any look to the next level.

Stripes are another popular trend in fur. Kate Moss is a fan of striped fur coats as are fashion editors and models alike. To tip toe into the look, try this striped fur scarf. 

Jewel colors are another popular way to embrace fur jackets. Worn with jeans and booties jewel colored fur coats make women channel their inner rockstar.

When all is said and done, in my opinion, if you're going to wear a fur coat, then it better be absolutely freakin' fantastic, so you can look as fierce as you will feel. Of course there is always a chance that an asshole dressed up as a dead cat will throw red paint on you, but life's made for taking risks. 

So, from patchwork to colorblock to stripes and solids, I've been shopping and here are my top picks for colorful fur jackets and standout faux fur coats:

Fitness Fashion: Carbon38

Fashion Fitness Clothing

I got in my 7am workout, did you?! With it being the new year it's time to get in some new healthy resolutions- eat clean, workout more often, step up your fitness fashion game... Now, I love a sassy neon tank as much as the next Soul Cycler, but lately I've been craving workout clothes that have a more of an urban edge. This is where Carbon38 comes in.

Sleek, chic and anything but basic, Carbon38's e-shop of fashion forward workout clothing helps you get sweaty in style. Founded by classically-trained dancers who scour the globe for the best and most fashion forward activewear, every item on the site is tested by a team of fitness insiders to make they meet top performance quality.

Top picks on the site include eclectic printed sportswear from  Mara Hoffman, sexy mesh workout clothes from Michi, leg warmer leggings from Alo Yoga and statement leisure wear from Spiritual Gangster.

So, since 2016 we are all going to be in the best shape ever, let's shop for some spandex;)!


National Velvet

Velvet Street Style

Is anybody else having a case of the chills? It is cold outside in California (relatively speaking), and I'm craving clothing in cozy velvet fabric. Rich by look and buy feel, but not necessarily by price, velvet makes a chic statement and adds dimension to outfits for both day and night. 

Although often associated with the holidays, there is still plenty of time to wear luxe Velvet fashions before retiring them for warmer weather. Take a tip from street style stars and combine velvet fashions with items associated with warmer months such as shorts or sandals. Another way to make this fab feeling fabric stay in fashion through the start of spring is to  look for items in lighter colors, like this velvet shirt or incorporate the trend through your accessories like these velvet flatform sneakers



Take On Party Season In Sequin Pants!

Last holiday season I posted on sequin jackets (which I still love), but this season I decided to embrace my inner party girl and homage to sequin pants! I know what you are thinking... but rest assured you don't have to be an Olsen twin or a fashion model to rock the look. As the Gypsy Sisters say, "Bling Bling Baby."

White sequins are a refreshing change from expected metallics. A lose fit pant keeps the look sophisticated.

sequin pants - Taylor Tomasi Hill- streetstyle
Taylor Tomassi Hill made her sequin print pants day to night appropriate with a solid top and killer shoes. You may want to add a moto jacket to beat the chill, just an idea;)

When wearing blinged out leggings try classic black pumps to elongate legs

sequin pants and sweater 
Sequin track pants worn with a chunky sweater make a perfect winter combo.

 More is more when you are an Olsen twin. Fur and sequins... bring it!

Sequins become daytime appropriate when paired with business worthy extras. 

So, tell me I'm not alone in craving a show stopping pair of stunna pants? Well you're welcome because I've done a bit of online browsing to find the bests sequin trousers and leggings out this season, have at it;)
