Style This: Leather Skirt

      To some people styling a leather skirt can be difficult, and rightly so. Leather is synonymous with rock n' roll and bad boys in Harley Davidson's. Paired with the right top and perfect accessories you can turn a leather skirt to a classy sweet look. So read on to find out how I put together this look.



Choosing a top with feminine details like lace, light colors, ruffles, bows, or rounded collars while be a good contrast from the edgy vibe that a leather skirt can give. 


    Pile on cute jewelry that compliments each other that have a slight vintage vibe. I love pastels, cameos, and flowers. Which is why I choose the items that I did for the outfit.


    I always found that clutches, and small side purses screamed girly. And I believe every girl should carry a purse with them, it is much more stylish than putting things in your pockets and can complete a otherwise unfinished outfit. So consider one of these bags when choosing your outfit.


    Shoes, shoes, and shoes! What girl does not love them. Because I have sensitive feet I chose footwear that I can personally use such as flats, oxford flats, and wedges. But if you love heels and can wear them, feel free to use those instead.


       Accessories changes the outfit in 0.2 seconds. For the outfit above I chose a cute pink beret hat that is plain adorbs! You can also wear a floral scarf  or if it is sunny some cute shades.

     When it comes to a leather skirt you can style it in many different ways to fit your particular style. Because my style is very pink and girly I styled the leather skirt that way. So don't feel limited when it comes to styling your leather skirt. Feel free to let tell me the way you would style a leather skirt. I would love to other peoples style.

What I am Currently Reading . . .


  This week I am currently reading a book that I am sure just about everybody has read.That book would be The Hunger Games. I have read this book at least 3 times already and my book shows some obvious worn. My new English professor e-mailed me a month ago to let us now we will be discussing the novel in class next month and it would be wise to read the novel in advance.  Since I am such a good student I decided to re-read the book just to make sure I do not miss any details.    

   Have you read The Hunger Games? Or have seen the movie? If so what do you think about it?

Motivational Monday . . .


       Every Monday I post a inspirational or cute quote to keep readers motivated and ready for the upcoming week. I hope you all have a amazing week!

Spring 2013 Lookbook: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's

        New season means new wardrobe additions in my closet. One of my favorite clothing lines has to be LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's. It is affordable and true to Lauren Conrad's personal style which I love and admire. The lookbook for her Kohl's line just came out and I could not be more excited about it. Here are a few pictures from her line . . .

       As usual Lauren Conrad sticks to feminine blouses, pops of colors, and prints (especially polka dots). I always love how classic and girly her pieces are. I fell in love with her Spring, Summer, and Fall line from 2012, and I am in love with this one as well. I personally cannot wait to get my hands on something from her affordable line.

       Do you like Lauren Conrad's Spring collection? If so what would you love to buy? Let me know in the comments below.

Favorite "Pretty Little Liars" Look of The Week: Spencer Hastings

         I'll be honest, a reason why I watch t.v is to look at the fashion and gain inspirations. One of my favorite shows to watch is ABC Family's "Pretty Little Liars". With mysterious plot lines, twists, hot guys, and amazing fashion. What is there not to like? Each week the show amazes me with their plot lines and the characters wardrobe.    

         On the latest episode of "Pretty Little Liars" my favorite look of the week had to go to the prep of the group Spencer Hasting who was seen rocking a ivory blouse with bows and pleated details on the front. Tucked in to a lace skirt with black lining, and finished off with riding boots.

         Her outfit for the episode represents her style of classic feminine prep perfectly. Spencer Hastings is quickly becoming my favorite best dressed character of the group. I still love Hanna's trendy style and Aria's unique edgy style, but recently I have been loving Spencer.

Get The Look:


LC Lauren Conrad: Buy Here

       The original shirt worn on the show is made by iconic designer Diane Von Furstenberg, which makes it ridiculous out of price for most of us. So I found this blouse by Lauren Conrad with similar bows and pleated details for a reasonable price.


Forever 21 Skirt: Buy Here
       I do not know where the original skirt was from and the one I had originally picked out from ModCloth is sold out. But I found a similar one from Forever 21 with scalloped details that would work just as well.


Forever 21: Buy Here
        Add a black wide belt to contrast the ivory blouse and lace skirt.


Forever 21: Buy Here
       Finish off Spencer's look with black riding boots.

      Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you all soon.

Personal Post: To Be Happy Again


         It was a tough year for me in 2012. I would not even know how to begin to explain it all. Each time I would begin to feel like things would be okay life would throw me another curve ball. Which can come as the reason why I have been M.I.A from my blog. Among the things that happen to me this year some were that I lost a best friend emotionally and things have not been the same. We have not even spoken in months. I cannot even tell her things I once was easily able to. Precious items were stolen from my home that meant the world to my mother. Things that she could never replace because of their sentimental values. I opened my eyes and realized the true character of people that are very important to my life. I also realized that "Jealousy Speaks" and when it does it is not pretty. We like to think that when we are happy and have exciting things happen to us that our loved ones will be just as happy with us just like we are happy for them. But that is not always the case. We cannot hide our emotions from others no matter how much we try. If we pay close attention we may notice those little ticks of their that reveal their real emotions like moving fingers, a rolling eye, the turn of their head, or a twist of their mouth. So many things I have had to keep hiding from those but only those who  truly cared and know me like my family and best friends knew what was going on and were there for me when I needed them. And for that I am grateful.

         So far this year has not been that great either. But hey that is life. How else are we suppose to learn from it and get thicker skin. Everyone goes thru hard times and I just happened to be going thru mine. I know I will be okay and I will remain positive that this year will be better than the last.  Which is why I have decided that this year I will be happy again. This year I will focus on my own happiness and my own self growth. No longer will surround myself by negativity and situations that cause me stress. After what happened to my family earlier this month I realized what are the things that truly matter and what things are unnecessary.

         I have great things ahead for me this year, Next Tuesday I will begin my Fashion courses and I could not be more excited about it. Perhaps this is just what I need to truly be happy again.

Keep Dreaming Alive . . .


There was once a little girl with dreams dancing inside her head. Running in her back yard chasing butterflies and taking peaceful naps on the cool grass. In no time at all that same little girl grew up to into a young lady. Life had given her a few lesson that were to always be kept inside her mind and heart. Despite those lessons and the loss of people close to her she always managed one thing. She managed to never stop dreaming …

New Modern Classics: Leather Jacket

       When I first started my blog I wrote a post about the Wardrobe Essentials Every Girl Should Have and later on as a part of my Style Series I wrote another piece about how to achieve a classic style using just about the same essentials. Now I still swear on those basic pieces but I also believe that there are new modern pieces that I believe have earned a spot on every girls closet.

       One of those pieces has to be a leather jacket. This is not by any means considered as new. This fashion forward jacket has been used since the 1940's. Mostly by men at the time, but slowly and surely this hot item became wearable for both members of the opposite sex. In recent times this jacket is no longer reserved for bad girls and and rock-stars. Now anyone can wear them in any style that there heart and personal style desires.

My perfect leather jacket (Delia's)

        What makes a leather jacket a new modern classic? Well take a look around you. Leather jackets are everywhere now in days. They now come in a variety of different cuts, colors, and in some cases even embellishments. We also have the choice to choose between real leather or faux leather, which is what I prefer.

         Adding a leather jacket to any outfit instantly takes the outfit to another level. It completes a edgy outfit, or it can toughen up a otherwise sweet outfit like a floral dress. At times it even turns a simple; slight boring outfit into something extra nice. All in all a leather jacket adds a instant chic factor to your personal style.

Here are a few examples of  Leather Jackets being used in outfits . . . .

        It may take some time to find the perfect leather jacket for you (It took me 3 years to find the right one for me) but when you find it I guarantee you will be dying to use it everyday and worth the extra space in your closet.

Hot Beauty Look: Hot Pink Lips

       Brighten up those cold gloomy winter days by adding a pop of color to not only your wardrobe but to your daily makeup routine as well. Much to my mothers dismay I love wearing hot pink lips during the weekend with a cool cat eyeliner style. Which in my opinion gives a very retro modern look.

        My favorite hot pink lipstick has to be by E.L.F Essentials Lipstick in Flirtatious. But there are plenty of shades and brands out there, that you will bound to find the perfect shade. The trick to pulling off a hot pink lip is to keep the rest of your makeup understated. I usually achieve this by just using foundation (to cover my imperfections), eyeliner, and mascara.

       My steps to creating a daring Hot Pink Lip:

  1. Dab chap-stick all over your lips and scrub it with a clean mascara wand to take off any flaky skin. F.Y.I You can get clean mascara wands at Sephora.
  2. Apply your lip stick as desired.
  3. Pat your lips down a tissue paper.
  4. Apply translucent powder on your lips and pat again with a tissue.
  5. Re-apply another layer of Lipstick.\
  6. Finish off with some clear gloss.

        So go on ahead and change up the ever classic red lip for the trendy hot pink lip. Different color, same daring look. And I promise you will turn heads wherever you go.
