Gathered Stripes

What I Am Wearing:
Corset (here) // Shirt (here, love this here) // Express jeans (here, also love this here, more here/here) // Heels (here, budget friendly here/ more here)

I am a big fan of mixing prints and patterns so when I received this striped corset, I pondered on how to layer and mix with other items. I considered a white button down shirt or white tee but eventually settled for the stripe shirt. I selected this stripe shirt for it’s length, color and pattern.

When mixing prints, I always look for harmony in the patterns. The common pattern in this case are the blue stripes; what makes the layered mix standout is the different shades of blue stripes and the fact that the pattern of the stripes is different.

For a casual look, I paired the layered mix with a pair of boyfriend jeans and my beige pumps. This will be my ideal look for lunch/dinner date with a friend or hubby.

Asymmetric Jumpsuit

What I Am Wearing:
Jumpsuit (On sale here and also here) // Heels (here or here, budget friendly here / here)

I am hesitant when shopping for jumpsuits as I worry about fits and inseams. I ordered this Asos mustard jumpsuit primarily for the color  and to my surprise, the length was amazing and all I needed was a belt to accessorize for proper silhouette. This was exactly how I felt when I saw this Aqaq jumpsuit ; I was attracted to the color and then, the asymmetric style. Believe me, the fit is amazing and I am in love with the jumpsuit collections at Aqaq.

What I Am Wearing:
Aqaq pants (here, also love this here & here) // Torn by Ronny Kobo (here, also love this color here, try these here) // Heels (here or here, budget friendly here / here)

Happy Monday everyone and I hope you had a beautiful weekend. If you feel this black and white ensemble looks familiar, you are absolutely correct; I featured it in a ‘boomerang’ video post on Instagram a couple of months ago.

This Aqaq pants is now one of my favorite wide-leg black pants and the fit, style and length is amazing. I always have a hard time finding wide-leg pants with a great fit when paired with heels hence, the reason why I have worn this numerous times.  I paired it with a bow crop top (here) and a white button down shirt (here). For this post, I paired with an off shoulder crop top, which I previously paired with overalls last summer (here). The exaggerated sleeves and flounced ruffle cuffs make it a statement piece and I love the stretchy and fitted feel.

What I Am Wearing:
Chicwish sweater (c/o on sale here, love this here & here) // J brand flare jeans (on sale here, more here & here) // Les Petits Joueurs bag (here, more here/here)

When the weather is not too cold, a pair of flare jeans and a sweater like this knotted sweater makes my day. I love the thickness and the unique “twist knot” detail on the back. It is always nice to find fun and unique sweaters for the season.  I have seen other fun sweaters from Chicwish that I am eyeing including this tight twist sweater in white or grey.

Work Style: Navy Blue & Grey

What I am Wearing:
AYR pants (on sale here, love this here/here, more here) // Ann Taylor blouse (here, more here) // Asos jacket (similar here, more here) //  Gianvito Rossi heels (old try this here, budget friendly here / here)

Happy Monday everyone! I am starting this week in a work inspired look which showcases a neutral tone mixed with a pop of navy blue color. Incorporating color to work styles during all seasons is something I love. It is often desirable to stick with neutral and dark colors during cold winter days but with appropriate accessories and a great color coat, the possibilities are limitless. A pop of color goes a long way in adding a fun feel to any look.

In the past, I styled this coat for a black and white look (as seen here). My work style revolves around pencil skirts and cropped pants and this AYR cropped wide leg pants is perfect in terms of color, quality and length. The color offers me the flexibility to style with colored or neutral tops. The quality is great and it is thick enough to keep me warm in winter and I definitely love the ankle length.

Ruffle Top

What I Am Wearing:
Style Keeper top (here, similar here & here) // Jeans (here, more here) //Bauble Bar earrings (here, more here) // Heels (here or here, budget friendly here / here)

The 60-degree weather today calls for a mini celebration when compared to the bitter cold weather of the past week. It feels a lot like spring and I am loving it and it is a great day to style this ruffle one shoulder top. The exaggerated ruffle top is a statement piece that does not need a lot to make it stand out. I wanted to keep it casual by styling with skinny jeans. I also plan to restyle with  white pants (as seen here). Due to the blue stripe print pattern of the top, I accessorized with cobalt blue drop earrings to highlight the colors.

How To Layer A Crop Top

Bow crop top, www.jadore-fashion.com
What I Am Wearing:
Bow crop top (here,) // Zara turtleneck (try this here, here,) // Zara pants (old, try this here/here) // Earrings (try this here)

Layering pieces of clothing is another fun part of styling and it comes in handy during cold seasons. For example, in the middle of winter, a crop top can be styled and layered with warm pieces.

I never hide my love for crop tops and bows and the moment I saw this big bow crop top, I knew it would fit in my closet. The exaggerated bow and emerald color is unique making it a piece that will make an outfit standout. Since we are in the middle of winter, I had to layer with a turtleneck sweater and paired with wide-leg tweed pants for a formal appeal.

A couple of months ago, I styled this outfit casually for a dinner date with friends. If you follow my Instagram story or Snapchat (Jadore-Fashion) you might have seen how I styled the crop top layered with a white button down shirt paired with boyfriend jeans and velvet pumps. The bow crop top is versatile and it is an item that can transform a simple look to a glamourous one.

Wear To Work

What I Am Wearing:
Pencil skirt (old, similar here, here or here) // Ann Taylor blouse (here, more here) // Asos jacket (similar here, more here) // 'Darashoes' flats (here, try this here) // Bag (old, try this here/here) // Heels (here or here, budget friendly here / here)

Hello friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am starting the week with a work-inspired look. For work outfits, I love stocking up on basic and essential pieces that that can be restyled with different tops and blouses.

Pencil skirts, black pumps and great sized totes are essential for work wardrobes. Pencil skirts  in varying colors such as black, navy, brown or beige allow me to create different looks effortlessly. A nice black pump is a great addition to a work wardrobe and if you are not a big fan of heels, comfortable black flats are ideal for work.

Today’s work style revolves around black and white pieces with a hint of navy blue. The navy blue color adds a refreshing appeal to the overall look. I switched my pumps to flats to highlight different ways to style especially if you are switching from work to running errands. Sometimes, I switch to flats when I am rushing to pick up Nolan from school.

Vacation Recap: Bermuda

Today's post is a recap of our family vacation to Bermuda, our choice location to spend the Christmas holiday. It was our first visit and I will confess that it was truly a beautiful island. There was a calm and reserved atmosphere and we met lots of nice and friendly people. Our vacation was during the off-season so it was not crowded but at times, the weather was chilly in the morning and evening but we enjoyed days of 70 degree temps.

Travel: The direct flight to Bermuda is about 2 hrs. from Philadelphia. To avoid connecting flights (because of our 3 year old), we thought it was best to drive to Philadelphia and depart from there.

Traveling with a toddler: Pack their favorite snacks in a carry on.  Nolan’s snacks and activity books were packed in his Dusty plane rolling luggage. Although the trip was short, having snacks and activities to keep him busy was great. Some of the things we packed include Stonyfield yogurt, Apple sauce, Pretzels and fruit snacks. We also packed his Mickey mouse coloring book, crayons, lots of stickers and his Kindle. His kindle has his Mickey mouse show and educational apps.

It's been a rainy day today and I can’t think of a better look than something casual. A pair of jeans, a shirt and a sweater equals a great casual look. I styled the look on this post in two ways to showcase how you can style a pair of jeans for a day out or for a rainy day. The rainy day look includes rubber hunters’ boots -amazing...definitely worth it and the original high gloss boots  feels light and comfortable.
