Boyfriend jeans has become a staple in my closet that I forget about my skinny jeans. On my Instagram, I referenced the Levi's skinny jeans as one of my favorite go-to jeans from i.e. the 711 skinny jeans.

Today's casual look is my ideal look for a date night with hubby - relaxed, feminine and chic. I love the lace blouse and details and it can be worn casually or formally. I see myself pairing it with a pencil skirt or pants in a formal setting.

Celebrate Mom: Mother's Day Gifts

Mother's Day Gifts

Mother's Day is fast approaching and it is time to celebrate. Don’t forget to order bouquet of flowers before all delivery dates get booked. Several florists are offering promotions for that day and if you are unsure of the arrangement to get, peonies, tulips and hydrangeas will bring a smile to that special person’s face.

I am sharing gift ideas to make your mother’s day shopping easier and the five items on this collage will make great gifts for everyday uses.

Print scarves are must-have accessories this season and big and durable bags remain a hit as they can fit pretty much anything. Don’t forget jewelries – timeless and precious; get her a piece of jewelry that is symbolic or adds to her existing collection from Pandora.

Yellow And White

What I Am Wearing:
Solace London shorts (old, try this here, here, here & here) // Cmeo top (here, herehere or here) // Schutz shoes (here, similar  herehere & here // Lipstick MAC "Lady Danger"  (here) // Bracelet (here)

For a fresh and springy look, incorporating white pieces and yellow items is the way to go. These colors are also associated with the spring and summer; if you don’t want the yellow color predominant, the white shorts can be paired with a darker hue .You can then accessorize with yellow pieces to keep it subtle.

Go Gingham!

What I Am Wearing:
 blazer // Shirt // Pants // Shoes // MAC "Lady Danger" (here) // OPI Nail polish (here)

Go gingham! A few weeks ago, I mentioned here how gingham prints will make waves this season and my love for gingham prints. This takes me back to my elementary school days where school uniforms were made with gingham prints.

There are so many ways to add gingham prints to your style. You can style as a work style by pairing this gingham shirt with a pencil skirt or pants. This gingham blazer with a button down white or navy shirt over a skirt or pants will equally be great for work.  Casually, ginghams can be paired with jeans and the styling is limitless with the abundance of gingham pieces and colors from shorts to skirts and pants. For example, I wore shorts with a similar pattern to the pants on this post while in Dallas for the 'rewardStyle' conference. I posted some pictures on my Instagram page and I will add to my collection, this Ann Taylor top and shorts which I will pair together or wear separately.

Today’s look is all about gingham i.e. from the blazer to the pants and for contrast, I added a slightly different color. If you are skeptical about mixing both prints, you can substitute the shirt with a white or blue shirt and if you want a casual approach, you can add a white/graphic tee.

Skirt and top c/o Le Tote // Necklace & bracelet c/o Le Tote // Shoes // Jeans /

Last week, I had the opportunity of trying out Le Tote and it was impressive. The idea of selecting favorite items that fit one’s style and returning them for new selections is great.   Le Tote is a fashion rental service that gives women access to an infinite closet of garments and accessories.

For my trial, I selected a suede wrap skirt, a black cami with unique details and a lace detailed sweater that I see myself pairing with a pencil skirl and pumps for work. I accessorized my first look with a drop necklace and a gold colored bracelet.

It is super simple to use Le Tote – Only pay $59/month and you will always have something new to wear. Receive styles you love, wear them and return and repeat all month. How amazing it that?! 

You never know until you try it. You have to check it out! Get 20% off your first month using code  JADORE .

Cherry Blossoms

What I Am Wearing:
Jumpsuit (on sale here, love these here, here & here) // Shoes (here, budget friendly here & here) // Lipstick (here)

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is a spring celebration in D.C that attracts lots of tourists and the beautiful cherry blossom trees are a sight to behold. The blossoms create a great ambiance for a summer white jumpsuit and if you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw a glimpse of the outfit.

I love the ethereal feel of the jumpsuit; the color and the unique design are awesome for the season. I paired it with my beige pumps but it can also be paired with beige sandals as an alternative. I kept the accessories light and minimal without taking from the overall look.

Can’t wait for the weekend; I will definitely have a blazer or leather jacket in hand if gets cold or windy. Talking about jackets, this H&M 'biker' jacket adds an edgy look to outfits and it has become a staple for me this spring. Today’s post showcases a casual look for the weekend with a pair of jeans that goes well with a plain tee or graphic tee. I might ditch the fun heels and pair this outfit with an Adiddas sneaker or converse which will equally look great. 

P.S. H&M is having a fantastic deal of 25% off your ladies purchase over $75 with code 3302 here

Lust List: Gingham

gingham trend,
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11

Gingham is a trend making waves this season and retail stores such as Old Navy, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor and JCrew have several gingham pieces and clothing items in stock. While in Dallas for the RewardStyle conference last weekend, I wore this blue gingham blazer and shorts for a garden party hosted by Joe Fresh. You can see the vibrant, fun, and chic look on my Instagram. I will be styling this Old navy gingham shorts and top very soon.

What are your thoughts on gingham?

Casual Day In The City

What I Am Wearing:
Renamed top (here, other colors here, and print version here)  // White jeans (old, try this here, here & here) // Chloe bag (c/o Luisa via roma here, love this version here, budget friendly cross body bag herehere, here, or here) // Lipstick "Flat Out Fabulous" (here)

On a warm day in spring, I did a photoshoot from a tourist’s viewpoint and the perfect backdrop was DC’s popular China town. The scenery was amazing and the outfit matches perfectly.

I call today’s look a “casual chic look” perfect for a day in the city. I went with a flare white jeans and a nice off the shoulder top. I love the vibrant color of the top which blends perfectly with the crossbody bag. Crossbody bags are great for packing smaller items and of course, a nice accessory for a casual look.

P.S. Check out a different way to style off the shoulder tops here. Also H&M is having a fantastic deal of 25% off your ladies purchase over $75 with code 3302 here

Off The Shoulder

What I Am Wearing:
MLM Label top (here, similar pairs herehere & here) // C/Meo pants (here, different color here, more here) // Shoes (here, budget friendly here & here)

I love exaggerated and structured “off the shoulder” tops and they are becoming a staple in my closet. On Friday, I wore the outfit on this post to the RewardStyle conference in Dallas Texas with black sandals rather than pumps as shown on the post. I incorporated this choker for an edgy look. 

Off the shoulder (OTS) tops with exaggerated sleeves amplify simple outfits while giving unique looks to them. You can wear them formally or casually with jeans as tomorrow’s post will showcase. A'fluted' sleeve top  paired with a pencil skirt or pant will be great for work if you prefer not to wear OTS tops

What I Am Wearing:

I like shirts with unique details such as ruffles or cold shoulders and lately, I have noticed an influx of unconventional white shirts. These shirts make simple looks feel elegant and unique.

For today’s look, I paired this H&M unconventional white shirt with a trumpet skirt . I played around with details and patterns to the 'gridbase' of the skirt and completed the look with similar patterned sandals.
