Matching plaid tops and pants to start the year on trend

Last year plaid iterated in menswear-inspired silhouettes such as double-breasted blazers and roomy trousers. This year we will be seeing this fabulous pattern transcend into not only blazers and pants, but dresses, skirts and to one of my favorite ensembles...the matching sets! So of course I thought it necessary to start off the year with a matching plaid set on Laura Wears. I found this matching set on Giti Online, a local Miami online boutique! Which BTW has really cute and affordable clothes. I've linked them above ^  as well as some other plaid options below in the shop the post widget! Anyway, I decided to pair my outfits with my classic yet so painful "So Kate" Christian Louboutins  and a deep navy blue cross body purse. Since the top has an open neckline, I wanted to draw attention to my neck with a choker.

My Valentine’s Day Picks

How to save your pennies this holiday season at JCPenny!

My love for Christmas runs deep, but my wallet on the other hand...not so much! Checking off everyone on my holiday list seriously takes a toll on my bank account, that's why this year I happily accepted the #JCPChallenge! Basically the challenge was to get everyone on my holiday list a present from JCPenny with only $150. Now, that may seem like a lot of money, but when you have a long list of loved ones the dollars add up quickly. Either way I was determined to succeed! So on my way I went to cross off all the names on my list at JCPenny, thankfully all their stores are the perfect one stop shops as they have multiple departments. This was a true saving grace as my family and friends asked for a slew of different things this year, all which I  found at good ol’ JCPenny.

Thoughtful Jewelry Pieces To Buy As Holiday Gifts for the Special Women …

The older I get the more I realize the importance of meaningful holiday gifts. This year I wanted to pick presents  that my loved ones would adore and cherish not just in the moment, but for years to come. As I put more and more thought into it, I realized that jewelry always hits a home run when it comes to gift-giving, especially for women. That’s why I decided to pick timeless jewelry pieces from Tous to gift to the beautiful women in my life! Ever since I was little I’ve not only loved Tous's jewelry, but I loved all the tender meanings their collections had, make sure to check out their latest tender moments video at the end of this post. Anyway, when I went to the store this past week I feel in love with two main collections, Eklat and Rubric. The Eklat collection features some of their classics with a bit more shine, like this bracelet and the Rubric collection has more of a heritage feel with pieces featuring cutting edges, like this pendant.  What I love most about these collections is that they are timeless and the women receiving these gifts will be able to cherish the pieces forever.

Trend Alert: How To Wear A Bustier Over Your Shirt Dress

The layered look among the style set this season is by far corsets and bustiers over just about anything, but one look I personally love is over the classic shirt dress. Pulling off the forward-thinking trend, however, is a bit tricky (tucking an oversize shirt into a waist-cinching piece isn’t exactly easy). Luckily, I've found the perfect shirt dress that is already cinched at the waist, taking the guesswork out of layering!  The second I saw this waist cinched shirt dress I knew I had hit fashion gold. Not only is the dress perfect for the current layering trend, but it's also perfect as a stand alone piece. Having a petite frame makes it extra important to wear fitted clothing, so you can see why wearing a loose man's shirt isn't my ideal option. With this fitted dress I get to be on trend while feeling feminine and sexy and not like I'm wearing a sack meant for potatoes(lol!) Plus it looks perfect with either a bustier like the one I'm wearing, or a corset.
