Creme de la Creme

When I first laid eyes on this Blaque Label crop top, I fell in love with it's boxy shoulders and flirty hem. The best part is - I got it for free on ifchic.com! Ifchic introduces a new way to shop. Simply visit www.ifchic.com to collect ifchic coins (each coin is worth $2.00) and click on the spinning gold coin once you see it. You can collect up to three coins per day, and you have 24 hours to spend these coins on the 24th of every month. Ultimately, you can rack up $180 in ifchic coins to spend every month just by visiting their website daily. Easy? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely. 

Now let's get back to this outfit of mine, shall we? Most of the time, we see trousers worn in the office. It takes a bold and fashionable female to wear them out on the town. When styled the right way, trousers can be the statement piece to a strong, elegant look. I like to pair them with a form fitting top, which adds a sultry spin to an otherwise masculine pant. 

I love how classy I feel when wearing all-white. I challenge you to try it. Let me know how it goes in the comments section below!

Thank you so much for reading. It's been colder and windy here in the Bay Area. I hope everyone is staying nice and warm.

Are you due for a Girl's Night out? Give your dresses and skirts the night off and opt for a bodysuit and trousers, just to keep things interesting! I balanced this sexy bodysuit with chic black trousers for an elegant, yet sultry look. (Tasteful side-boob, as my teenage sister calls it).

There's something about a menswear inspired piece that makes me feel most feminine. I feel bold, empowered--and it's always fun doing something you're not 'supposed' to do.

The bodysuit I'm wearing is actually a one-piece swimsuit by Minimale Animale, my absolute favorite swimwear brand. The material is ribbed and thick enough to be worn as a top. The trousers are vintage. They were my mother's from the 90's. I finished the look with my extra pointy pumps by BCBG. They don't make 'em this pointy anymore! I still get compliments every time I wear this 3D gold clutch. Get yours from the link below!

I hope you ladies are inspired to try a different look every now and then! 

Special thanks to Marco Alexander for making my photos look this fab! I truly love this photo set. Thanks so much for reading, guys. Make today a great one!

If fashion is art, then wearing all white is minimalism at its finest. Such a chic and simple color that is perfect for either blending in or standing out. I layered on the Native American-inspired necklaces and stacked a bunch of chunky bracelets. The large beaded bracelet I’m wearing was actually a necklace from a Cinco de Mayo celebration at a Mexican restaurant, fun times! I’m not Mexican in the least bit, but I’m all for celebrations. I grew up in the suburbs but my disposition lies in the nomadic ways of a gypsy. Wearing all this jewelry and splashing in the tides under the blazing sun channels a spirit within me that is wild and free. 

I’ve been told I could save a lot of time if I took more selfies and mirror pictures of my outfit-of-the-day, but that’s not nearly as fulfilling as exploring the unseen while showcasing my style and self-expression. [But hey, I do love me a good selfie!] It’s quite an adventure every time I shoot with Lux. We trampled off trail, climbed over massive boulders and waded through waist deep tides to discover this magnificent paradise. I love what I do, and it gives me great joy to share this with whomever digs my vibes. Thanks a ton for stopping by, my loves. I hope your day is as marvelous as you!
