Boys & Pocket Squares, Girls & Pocket Bow

Hello lovelies,

How did April manage to sneak up on us?!? But I am super excited for warmer weather and longer days full of sunshine. We have had so much rain this year and are beating all LA precipitation records while staying in low temperature ranges, so I am ready for the sun to make its more permanent appearance.

Speaking of spring vibes this Bow Detail Tweed Tunic Dress from SHEIN is totally speaking my language and helping me welcome the spring in a classic yet fresh style. And yes here is where this post’s title comes into play–boys spruce up their suit pockets by adding a pocket square, but guess what? Us girls can have our own twist on that brilliant idea and use a set of bows to dress up our pockets!! Doesn’t this dress do so in the most subtle, yet noticeable way? By adding the black bow to the top of the pockets and black hemming the sleeves and neckline as well, this simple white dress turns into a feminine yet edgy piece which speaks volumes with simple black and white statements.

Just a few more details on this tunic dress that I love: it is made out of a tweed material which is 80% cotton–the perfect fabric for spring–breathable, yet warm. It is versatile due to its tunic type which allows you to wear it with some leggings on a cooler day. Another aspect that makes this tweed dress very wearable is the simplicity of colors which allow you to pretty much play with any color and pattern accessories. It is elegant and perfect for a day at the office or a date night with your sweetheart. Did I mention that it is only $24?!

Leopard Print -From the Catwalks to the Globes

Hello lovelies,

Hope your weekend was restful and fun at the same time. I had the opportunity to spend it with a dear friend of mine and that was a treat! 🙂

One trend that I noticed being back on the table this season is none other but the famous leopard print–it was all over the Spring/Summer 2019 catwalks from bold Saint Laurent bodysuits to silky, midi skirts by Burberry. Most recently we saw Anne Hathaway arrive to the 2019 Golden Globes looking fierce in an all-over leopard print ball gown by Elie Saab. Needless to say I got inspired to try the trend–to me leopard print is a combination of otherwise neutral colors that pack a beautifully mean punch of style into an outfit.

Sooooo, how did I get my leopard on? Well, you know I love dresses, so I opted out for the Tie Neck Leopard Print Ruffle Hem Dress. It combines two types of print – one on a smaller scale that trims the dress on the bottom, at the waist line, the neckline and the cuffs of the sleeves and a larger print which comprises the rest of the dress. I like the mixture of the two as they are placed strategically to add to the shape of this leopard print dress.
