Extra, Extra, RED All About It..

Attention Ladies, Fashionistas, Shopaholics, Movers, and Shakers,

I am here to tell all of you that the statement color I am seeing and wearing all over the place is RED.  You can wear red any day, anytime, and any occasion.  I picked out some of my fave pieces in the Red family that will have you looking on point every minute of everyday. Fall is the perfect time to wear such a statement color. Even if you think you can’t pull red off. I know you can still get yourself a fierce accessory.  A handbag or a pair of shoes will keep you on point this season.  No excuses not to be wearing this seasons HOTTEST hue.

Even my homegirl on my wall at the office is rocking her Red floral dress. She could stand to use some pigmentation in her skin or even a lil hair color.  I really can’t judge because she is bringing it everyday to the office…

Thrill Seeker

I am not much of a thrill seeker these days. Don’t get me wrong, I have done my share of skydiving in New Zealand, surfing in Sayulita, Mexico and riding sand dunes in Arizona. However, this season I will be living in the fast lane through my clothes. If you are living the extreme life or simply wanting to just dress like it, I have the answer for you.

My inspiration mood board:

The key to this seasons sporty trend is to take one key piece and turn it into a day-to-night outfit.

For example, I found this amazing sporty Alexander Wang jacket to create a fun look for the office. I decided to keep the jacket the main event and add a pair of flat-front trousers, chunky platforms, and a mesh racer back tank. Keeping the color palette alive, I added a fun contrasting belt and a loud over-the-top necklace.

I came across this amazing surfer-inspired dress by Michael Kors and I wanted to play it up a bit. So, I  paired it with a cotton-blend jacket and rolled up the sleeves  for a more casual take, and pair with sandals and a fun bracelet. If I was out on the town wearing this little get-up, I imagine a hightop bun  glossy lips and a sassy clutch.
