GRATITUDE CHANGES OUR ATTITUDE!






Who's ready for Thanksgiving??!! Can you believe it is next week?? I have so much to be thankful for this year. This year was probably the worst time with dealing with my anxiety. I really had a hard time catching it before it got bad. The past month I have really incorporated gratitude into my every day routine. I have found that every time I feel anxiety coming on I quickly say out loud or right down what I am thankful for. Lately it has helped so much!! Its an everyday battle but I feel like I am getting better and better with it. I will continue to share my journey with you all because not only does it help me but I want you all to feel that you are not alone. 

So lets make this post about fashion and gratitude. At the moment my husband and I are going through some changes and next week I will share it with you guys. No Im not pregnant! LOL! I wish but its not my time yet. But I am thankful for my Lord and Savior who saves me everyday from myself. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for my husband who uplifts me and supports me in everything that I do. I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my church for feeding my soul every week and providing me peace and wisdom. I am thankful for my followers for their friendship and support throughout the years! Just typing this made me feel so good and I am literally smiling from ear to ear. Try it guys. It feels so good to write down what your thankful for.

What are you guys thankful for? With all the sad and horrific news lately lets pray for strength and healing for those going through hard times and find ways to support them. I have posted some links below how we can support those that are suffering from the California wild fires. 


"Rejoice always,
Pray continually,
Give thanks in all circumstances"

WEEKEND UNIFORM: SNEAKERS WITH A SKIRT



Hey chicas! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I went to NYC over the weekend to celebrate my 33rd birthday. On Saturday my husband and I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the first time and I was remarkable. It is a very large museum and after being there for almost 6 hours we discovered that it takes more than one visit to see all the exhibits. The most crowded area was the Anna Wintour Met Gala Collection: Heavenly Bodies. It was beautiful and I was mesmerized by some of my favorite designers innovative interpretations of fashion and faith. If you are to visit this exhibit, you have to check this out. 
Sunday was our last day but I really wanted to shoot a look in the city. We toke a Lyfte to the west village and grabbed brunch at The Butcher's Daughter. This area is so pretty we found a cute hidden street where we toke some nice photos. 
I have always wanted to live in the city. There is something about the industrial yet quaint spots of NYC that really stimulate my creativity. The energy of the city is infectious. 
It kind of ties of themed appropriate to wear sneakers and animal print in NYC. Its a place where you feel freedom to place around with different elements because of the city's individualistic ideology. Everyone beats to their own drum here. 
I felt so good in this outfit guys. I loved the play on feminine on top with tom girl vibes on my feet. This skirt is from the Target WhoWhatWear collection and it is a steal for both the price and the material. It would look great with a pair of sock boots or midi length boots as well. 
This Zara sweater is so soft and cozy. Its probably one of the softest sweaters I own. The color is great for fall and winter and I just love the fit of it. Its gong to be easy to pair with high waisted jeans as well. The belt bag just tied the sweater and skirt together nicely. Belt bags are a great accessory to your casual look and can really tie your look together.

I FOUND THE COZIEST CARDIGAN FOR FALL!



There is nothing better than wearing a comfy and cozy oversized cardigan for cold fall/winter months. I love fall fashion a lot more than summer. What makes fall one of my favorite seasons is the layering. If I have to leave my apartment on a cold brisk fall day I love to wrap myself in a cozy cardigan that feels like a warm blanket. Add a cup of coffee in my hands and I am such a happy camper :) 

The cardigan adds so many possibilities into your fall style. Take a break from the turtle necks and chunky knits and wear a cozy cargidan with a lace tank top or a plain t-shirt. There are so many different styles of cardigans: oversized, short, embroidered and long. Its the perfect transitional piece if your not ready to totally ditch your summer pieces such as denim skirts and shorts. 

This Chicwish cardigan I picked out on the website is so cozy and I love the color so much!  I wanted to show you guys a cardigans versatility so I paired this with a checkered belted peg pants and high heels. The most common way to wear this cardigan would be with jeans but I wanted to play around. I will style a second look for you guys!

I linked my sweater and a few others below along with some great peg pants for you guys. I love this style pant because its high waisted, form fitting stylish and look great with both heels and sneakers. Plus I always look skinny in them especially when I am bloated and on my period. I love a pair of pants that makes me look skinny enough that I can still eat a cheat meal (winning!).

Fall 2018 Trend Report: Animal Print



The rawr trend is back again babes! 
The roaring print has never really gone away and has been an iconic pop trend is many tv and celeb red carpets appearances. The print has always been a closet must have for women of all generations. It is iconic in its own right and has evolved throughout time. It was all the rage during the roaring 1920's era and in the 1960's was made into everyone's favorite matchy matchy accessories. In the millennium fashionistas were mixing prints and spots were made larger. 

One of my favorite boldest prints has always been animal print. I have always loved leopard and snake print. Whether you wear leopard or animal print as a top, coat, or an accessory to your outfit, it elevates your outfits and looks amazing. 

If your bold you can try out a matchy two piece set or a bold belted coat or a fun pair of boots. I just recently found an animal print skirt to be trendy on a lot of websites. I recently purchased one from target and I can't wait to post it soon for you guys! Stay tuned for that Day to night look!

Shop below and check out some gorgeous animal print pieces I picked out for you guys! This is my favorite part of sharing outfit post. I feel like a virtual stylist for you guys! I love it!

FALL'S MOST VERSATILE PIECE: THE BLAZER



Looking for the perfect fall piece to transition from work wear to weekend wear?  I have the thing for you sis: the plaid blazer. Its such a stylish look for the work place and most importantly it is 
HR approved (thumbs up for that!). 

Chicas you can't go wrong with a plaid blazer. Its an easy transition piece from summer to fall and level up all of your looks, yes I said level up :) You can style your blazer with a midi or and mini skirt, jeans, or with a belt around the waist for a stylish twist. This Zara plaid blazer is my favorite item that I have purchased so far for the upcoming fall months. Sidenote: My birthday is in September! Libra season. Who else is a Libra?



Blazer: Zara (similar one here
Jeans: American Eagle (old) 
Bag: Zara (similar one here
Sunnies: Ray Bans 


When I am wearing a masculine feel blazer I love to pair it with feminine dainty clothing underneath. I wore this layered camisole to show some skin and add a feminine touch. The boyfriend jeans go with the masculine tomboyish vibe and the heels pulls the look together. I wanted to pull the hair back and give it a wet look so I looked polished. The blazer is the focus point and I didn't want my hair to be in the way. I really like the way this look turned out. What do you guys think? Are you feeling the plaid blazer for fall? 

I know its not fall yet technically but if your a fall baby and love to get ahead start on your fall wardrobe check out some pieces I picked out below!!

Beaded Bag Trend + Shopping List!



Nothing makes me happier when fashion pieces that were before my time come back into trend so I can wear them! I love vintage pieces and the beaded bag is so timeless and chic. The Antonia bag by Hanna Weiland, found of Shrimps went viral and can be credited for the beaded bag comeback. Since then many other retailers, such as Zara has released a version of the beautiful vintage inspired bag. 

The bag has a elegance about it. It feels like pearls around your wrists and I feel feminine and charming. There are so many fun play on versions of this vintage inspired bag from pops of bright colors to playful designs. You can wear this bag to dress up your casual look or make a statement and stand out in your night time look. 

I purchased the Zara black beaded bag (pictured above) two weeks ago and I loveeee it so much! Its large enough to hold all my purse necessities. I am so excited to share with my babes so beautiful beaded bag options from affordable to splurge worthy!

Summer Two Piece Sets


Oh summer you come so late and leave so quickly... If you live on the east coast like me, you definitely know this feeling! However I am not ready for fall yet and I am putting on and wearing out all my summer looks before summer is over!

 This summer I feel like two piece matching sets are the hottest trend. I love them because their stylish and fun. But best of all they make get dressed easy and saves you time to head out early to the beach or make the drive to a weekend getaway. Two piece sets come in all prints and colors from gingham, palm tree leaf and tropical florals. 

This misslola.com two piece orange leaf print set is amazing! It comes with a bralette but if your not comfortable wearing a bralette you can wear it with a bodysuit or crop top! Another great thing about this two piece is you can wear each piece separately and make different outfits with other pieces in your closet! I am all about versatile pieces and mixing and matching my closet pieces. 




My second MissLola two piece set is a palm tree leaf shorts and blazer set. I love that the shorts are tie up high waisted shorts that also have pockets ( pockets are a big plus!). The palm tree print is one of my favorite summer prints so this look is my favorite of the two. I feel like I am in Puerto Rico while rocking this set. The set doesn't come with a bralette so I wore a white crop top that I already had in my closet. Its ridiculously comfortable because of its relaxed fit and breezy material. 

I am so excited to share with you guys that MissLola has kindly created a coupon code for my girls! You can save 20% OFF by using code: STYLEBRUNCH

MissLola not only has clothes but shoes as well. Its a great place to shop for trendy and affordable pieces. I can't wait to see what they have in store for fall and winter season.
