Something I’ve learned as a fashion blogger is that fashion is more than luxurious outfits, expensive prices and owning every seasonal trend. Fashion comes naturally, it is about style and personality and it is about seeing beauty in every place you go.
Thankfully, the cold weather is slowly staying in the Valley which means it is time for layers! A preppy style will always look presentable even if you’re just wearing a sweatshirt. Pick a bright color and play around with print layers. I love effortless casual looks that you can wear all day long for any type of occasion and just be yourself, the point is to have fun with it.

The transition of seasons is the best. For many people it is all about buying a new wardrobe, but for me it is about experimenting. Mixing summer and winter pieces to create neutral looks for the unexpected temperature changes is what I enjoy the most. This outfit is a good example – black trousers are one of my favorite pieces since they’re not tight yet give a flattering silhouette to the body because of their high waist. I wear them either for work or for a night out. Also, this cold season is all about anything oversized! I love blazers and chunky sweaters, and this royal blue blazer completes the look by making it a bit more fun and dramatic.

Fall season in the Valley means “be ready for ANYTHING”. One day we have unbelievably hot weather which makes us dream about being in a bikini all day and the next day we have thunderstorms that requires rain boots and jeans. Oh, it’s good to be home. 

Today I’m wearing jeans which are the biggest asset in your wardrobe – it is fun to transform them for every occasion. I’m also wearing my oversized, chunky top from Zara with snake print wedges to give an edgy vibe. Of course, a statement necklace is always on my check list plus a pop of color that doesn’t hurt anybody. How do you transform your jeans?

I must admit that shorts are my favorite piece of clothing. I realized I own more bottoms than tops and sometimes it gets frustrating wearing the same type of neutral top with different bottoms, but I guess that’s part of my style.

Shorts are comfortable, feminine, easy for day-to-night outfits and perfect year round – be it with tights underneath or by themselves. Today’s shorts are one of my favorites because of the flirty details on the side, also because they are black so they’re easy to mix and match. I never show too much in my outfits but I love how unexpected cuts can look classy and fun at the same time.

Be happy and always add a pop of color like this green loose top and a thin leopard belt to add some print. Most importantly, wear your bag with pride. As a young professional never underestimate the power of a good daily satchel bag, trust me, it will make a difference. 
Love,

After spending another summer away from home I realized how much I still have to learn and to live. Like everything in life there were ups and downs but the experience working, and the people I met, are the priceless rewards that made everything worth it. Now that I’m back and ready to start my last semester in college it’s time to keep up the hard work and find street style inspiration at home. 

Today’s outfit is for the CollegeFashionista + American Eagle contest (VOTE HERE). My favorite piece of denim has to be my oversized denim shirt but since it wasn’t enough I also added my mini denim shorts. I love loose clothes and the way I can mix them with sophisticated pieces like this blazer, making the look more presentable. I might have brought back a little taste of urban style from New York, so stay tuned for more Street Styler wardrobe mixes.
Love,

The Artsy Lower East Side

Long weeks of hard work and almost no time to rest. That’s life in New York City but with two weeks left before departing home some fun needs to be done, including blog posts and even some shopping. This well-spent weekend with my friends was all about laughs, food, drinks, and discovering new sights. Places from Le Bain in Meatpacking to Jack’s Wife Freda and even graffiti walls on the Lower East Side are great for unexpected inspiration.

Today’s outfit was perfect for a weekend with the girls. Sporty going chic is something I thought I would never try but with the long walks in the City my feet needed some hugs from a cute pair of sneakers. So I thought, why not pair them up with cotton shorts and a cute bright top with a statement necklace to keep it flirty? Nothing more comfortable and prepared for anything that might pop up during the weekend.
