Stepping Out of My Style Comfort Zone in Milan

Fergus and I have just returned from Milan! We had an amazing little trip, exploring the city and visiting my Italian pals. I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking for a quick city break! If you have any questions about our Milan visit, comment them down below, because I’ll probably be answering them in my next post with my mini guide to Milan.

For this week’s post, I wanted to try to challenge myself and my typical style in Milan! Often, I find myself getting into a fashion rut and just wearing a similar combination of clothing over and over, so every now and then, I think I’ve got to break out of the routine.

A piece of clothing a usually shy away from is the midi skirt. I’ve long admired the midi skirts and dresses on the likes of my taller friends, celebs, and models, but I’ve always felt that I was too short too pull one off. Since I’m always preaching that anyone can wear anything though, I thought I should test myself to do the same!

Corduroy's Big Comeback

Sorry this post is a tab late! How are you all doing this week? Have you been up to anything exciting this past weekend? Comment down below if you’ve been on any exciting adventures, seen any good Netflix series, or gotten some much needed things completed.

For this week’s post, I wanted to talk about one of this season’s biggest trends, corduroy! While it comes around every fall/winter season, it seems to be making an even bigger comeback this year and in some new and interesting ways! I’ve seen corduroy in more colors, styles, and shapes than I’ve ever imagined and I’m kind of loving it! I don’t have a love of corduroy pieces yet myself, but the few bits I do have, like this dress from Zara, are keeping me warm and stylish! I’ve come up with a few tips for rocking corduroy your own way!

How to Upcycle Your Holiday Dresses

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and have survived this colder than expected March weather, especially if you were hit by the, so called, Beast from the East!  Luckily, we made it out here with only a couple smaller flurries and a drop in temperature.  Our trees are still blooming, as you can see! Today, I thought it would be a great idea to talk about you can re-style and recycle your New Year's Eve, Christmas, and other party dresses to make them more casual and spring appropriate!  Wearing dresses in a casual way is one of my favorite outfits.

Philadelphia's Hidden Gems

I'm back! Sorry I missed last week's post, but I was visiting my beloved bestie, Joud, in Philadelphia and I really wanted to focus on fully experiencing it! So, in lieu of that, I thought I would dedicate this blog post to some of the amazing food, fun, and photogenic locations my gorgeous tour guide, Joud, took me to. (She honestly curated the best trip ever.)

Learn to Love Yourself

This Valentine's Day, I've been thinking about how important it is to love yourself.  Yes, we all have our little flaws, but loving yourself first is an essential part to being a healthy and overall happy individual, in my opinion.  On this day when we're so busy showing everyone else how much we love them, don't forget to show yourself a little love.

Back to Black

I hope you're all doing well on this dreary January morning.  Has this not been the longest month ever?  It feels like it will never end, and I don't know about you, but we've been having some not-so-lovely weather! Instead of crisp, frosty mornings, we've been having soggy grey ones. 

Because of the less than cheerful weather and this never-ending month after the holiday season, I know many of you, like me, is getting a bit bored or feeling uninspired when it comes to your wardrobe.  You've probably even resulted to wearing black everyday, which, while easy, can also be quite unexciting.  Not to fear though, I'm challenging you to reinvent the way we all wear black.  

(My friend from high school, Miranda Meyers took these amazing shots for me, and they're honestly some of my favorites to date. We had so much fun creating these photos and chatting all afternoon! I've been wanting to work with her for ages now. Head over to her blog and instagram and give her amazing work some love.)

My Book Recommendations: Fashion & Otherwise

Today, I thought I'd touch upon some of my favorite books, some based on fashion and others just amazingly well-written stories.  I'll go into why I love each book and why I think you should give it a try yourself.  Also, one of the personal goals I've set for myself this year (and one I set for myself nearly every year, but don't always succeed in), is to read more books.  With that in mind, I'd love if you could leave your recommendations down below so I can start compiling a list and then reading!
