Happy New Year everyone! 2014  was so amazing to me!  I spent an entire 5 weeks in Asia, snowboarding in Japan,  eating my way through Shanghai, island hoping in Indonesia and endless shopping in Seoul, South Korea. It was the first time I had travelled alone in a different country. It helped me realized how strong and independent I could be and  for the first time I came back feeling extremely calm. It could have been all the yoga at sunset or simply surrounding myself with friends who appreciated all the little things in life.  There was such a big change in my attitude that when I got home even my friends noticed. 2014 has been the most positive I have ever been in life. I believed in my dreams, and went chasing it by living in New York for the summer. I have even found the up-side of living in Delaware. I’m eating better and working out now at a Crossfit gym. I’m totally obsessed. I also made one New Year Resolution, the same one I made to  myself every year; to get abs. I started today Jan.5.2015. Clean eat and working is my new lifestyle change not just a fad diet. I hope to show you some progress next month! Thank you for following me on this journey.

Have an extremely blessed year filled with love, laughter an positivity everyone!

These TOPSHOP jeans are probably the best fitting denim I have purchase in a very long time. The best part is it comes in PETITE and the inseam is 28″ which means it grazes just about the ankle. I have seriously worn it every time I’ve been out in the last 2 weeks. And no stretch at all at the bum and knees! Which means I also bought them in white!

DARK SIDE

I am moving on over to the dark side. My hair is in transition to go back to platunium blonde since I had grown my roots out for the last 4 months. When there is more than an inch of root it takes about 3 bleaches before I get platinium, so as of right now I am a light brown. What do you think? I think its a pretty cool shade, I just prefer blonde right now.  On to the other dark side! I’m wearing black. I almost never wear black. In fact, black has always been my last color option, but lately I have found why everyone loves it so much.

 

NOT JUST WHITE

No, I don’t just wear white. :) I love white and the majority of my wardrobe is white but I am actually a huge color and print lover. If you were with me since the beginning you would know I love mixing color and prints. Just a quick reminder of me in color www.maistylepages.blogspot.com oh and long dark hair! Woah!

I am often asked as a stylist, “What are your favorite trends ?” My answer is probably disappointing to most because I’m not a huge fan of trends. Not to say that I haven’t purchase a piece of clothing or accessory that is on “trend” this season. Trends are almost unavoidable because it is what is often available to consumers.

This past year, I have given away 75% of my wardrobe to edit and refocus on my style. When I shop, I am usually mindful of how often I can wear an item and how many times I can restyle it to get the most use. But if you keep in mind,  classics like well tailored button down blouses and over-the-knee black boots are essential. Classics are worth the splurge and will always be a staple in your wardrobe.

Happy Monday! This was an outfit I wore to New York Fashion Week this past September.  Sometimes wearing all white can be mundane, thus I have been trying to add elements of texture in when I can. Neoprene is one of my favorite fabrics, it can add a structure and a dash of fun without weigh an outfit down. Everything that I  style, I try to find something that makes each outfit special. Because the button down shirt and midi skirt felt almost like upgrade office wear,  I added the skirt (top) to give a bit of a  special flare.

Happy Monday everyone! As you are reading this, I’m back home and no longer in my NYC apartment. New York was such an incredible experience and boy was it a busy summer. My summer in New York was almost a blur between editorials at The Fader, styling Diane and Jackie from Orange Is The New Black and fashion week, it felt like a blink of an eye. Now I’m back to my normal commute to NYC without the ease of having an apartment to come home to. But with the good comes the bad, it was difficult to live apart from the hubs for a few months, so it is good to be home.

Lately, I just love the floor length style and the added bonus is it helps with the morning breeze. I love Autumn because I can layer to feel cozy unlike freezing when the Winter months roll around. Though each season do have its perks, I love snowboarding so I always look forward to the first snowfall.

Happy October!

I can not  believe Autumn is already upon us, especially since I’ve been in bed for the last few days. I was bedridden with the cross child of the flu and the stomach bug. It was not cute. I even cancelled my birthday dinner and missed a good friends bridal shower. I know, I know,  I promised some fashion week pictures but both myself and my photographer who edits the photographs were out of commission due to the same bug.  Hope you enjoy these photographs instead.

Lately, since living in NYC I’ve learned I can not wear heels everywhere. It’s nearly impossible to take the train and walk the avenues comfortably. My fashion choices lately have reflected this lifestyle. Flats, oxfords and sneakers are now apart of my line-up. I  personally loved the trousers with a pair of converse. My sneaks felt so dressed up and my trousers felt so cool. It was a good day. ha!
