Pink Jean, Pink Tassels

Shirt: Express (similar shirt linked here)  Shoes: DSW  Jeans: Express  Jacket: H&M  Sunnies: Urban Outfitters  Earnings: Grace Stores (similar pair linked here)

When am I not wearing pink!? Pretty much anything pink you can be sure you will find in my closet. Today I'm sharing just a few of my pink beauties, a pink, cropped, jean jacket and adorable pink tassel earrings, both of which are relatively new to my wardrobe. I've had a few people stop and ask me if I cut my jacket myself and the answer to that is, nope! Just as you see it is how I purchased it! I love a good purchase that looks DIY. And I'm so excited to share my latest accessory find with y'all! My pink tassel earrings are from my favorite local shop Grace, and I am in love with them! I had been wanting a pair of tassel earrings for a while now and has been holding out, but when I stopped into Grace and these little guys were at my finger tips I couldn't resist any longer, I snatched them up along with another pair of earrings which will be coming to the blog soon!

This is a relatively casual and comfortable look. I threw this on to get dinner with my family and it was perfect for just grabbing a quick bite to eat. Espadrilles sneakers need to be the next craze though because let me tell you, so cute, so stylish, SO comfortable! They are the whole package. With a coupon my mom found for DSW these babies were only about 30 dollars! Sneaks like these are perfect travel shoes for destinations where you'll be doing lots of walking but aren't trying to compromise a cute outfit with athletic sneakers or they are simply good for just making an outfit cute and casual if you aren't looking to get too dressy.  

Try this look out for your next casual outting.

Last Minute Outfit Done Right!

Shirt: H&M  Skirt: H&M  Shoes: NYLON Shop

Check out this stylish yet formal outfit! A few weeks back I wore this to a networking event and today I'm sharing it with all my loves! 

 Honestly, this was a last minute throw together and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have been living in these shoes lately even though they were a purchase for my upcoming trip to Nashville!! They are so cute I couldn't resist wearing them a little earlier than planned and believe it or not they are from the lovely NYLON Shop! I do suggest sizing up with them though as they are a little snug and you will see that NYLON Shop suggest the same thing if you check out the details. The rest of my outfit happens to be from H&M but they are basics that can are easy to find. What we have here is just a super simple throw together and I can't think of anything better than that.

Starting Spring In Pastels

Sunnies: Urban Outfitters (similar ones linked) Shirt: J Crew  Shoes: J Crew  Ascot: J Crew  Overalls: Forever 21

I pranced around the city in this little number yesterday and it was perfect for the beautiful, but not yet super warm, spring weather! These overalls were a steal from forever 21 that were recommended to me by my roommate. I am so glad she thought of me when she saw these pink beauties! They are perfect for giving off that spring vibe with their pink, pastel color. The rest of my outfit can be found at the one and only J Crew. Shoes, shirt and ascot. I picked up this shirt and ascot on sale at J Crew the other day and am so glad I did. This shirt is super comfortable and can be dressed up or worn as a basic tee. I sized up and am wearing a size medium, for a more laid back look, I  even cuffed my sleeves to give it more of baggier comfy look. 

Now that I am winding down with school I hope to be posting more often, I am aiming for atleast twice a week, so stay tuned for more consistent posts!

Pantsuit Party

Jumpsuit: Forever 21 (Similar one linked here)  

Remember that time I went to Jamaica? Well here's another outfit from my week in paradise in honor of the incredibly beautiful weather we have been having here in New England the past few days.

There isn't much to say except that, this jumpsuit will rock your world. A perfect dinner outfit that is light weight and comfortable, add just about any pair of heels you have a winner. With a loud pattern that can stand alone, no accessories are necessary. A jumpsuit that speaks volumes on its own is a jumpsuit worth having.

Orange & Overalls

Overalls: Forever 21  Shoes: Nordstrom (Similar Pair) Hat: Banana Republic  Sunnies: Urban Outfitters

I am totally 100% missing paradise right now, and wishing for an infinite dose of vitamin sea. The closest I'm going to get to paradise right now is these pictures so today I'm sharing a relaxed kick around outfit from my travels. 

 This outfit is the epitome of simple! Starting with overalls being the answer to all your problems, they can be a cover up, a layering piece or just a fun statement. Then pick a shirt, any shirt and a fun pair of shoes to make things exciting and your outfit is complete. If they aren't already I highly recommend you add espadrilles to your spring must have's list! These slip on espadrilles are extremely comfortable and are the perfect spring pop of color with their warm orange-y flare.

Only 2 more outfits from paradise to keep us thinking of warmer places. Then we might just have to jet off again, or we are out of luck!

Travel in Style

Joggers: H&M  Sneakers: Adidas  Shirt: Shopbop  Jacket: Old Navy  Sunnies: H&M  Suitcase: Macy's  Carry On Bag: Longchamp

Gotta love that yellow airport lighting, but all is good because I'm finally sharing my travel outfit from last weeks getaway! I always like to travel in my comfies because who wants to be in a car, plane and/or airport for hours in anything other than a comfortable outfit. 

Lets start with my must have jogger sweat pants, they are by far the comfiest joggers I have ever worn, I haven't gotten out of these babies since I bought them! They are on sale an now under $15 and 100% a must have, they come in 7 other colors in the regular fit (linked here for under $20) and in 2 other colors in the skinny fit. I am wearing a size small in skinny fit so I would say they run a little on the bigger side. I am also wearing a size small in the almost matching shorts! They didn't have the exact color so I had to settle for a washed out plum color, still super cute though and a perfect airport change for when I got to hot, sunny Jamaica. Since it was freezing in NY there was no way I was heading to the airport in shorts so I packed them in my carry on and did a quick outfit change when I arrived keeping the same outfit but with shorts. Super cute, super fun.

I always like to have one "travel outfit" ,as me and my mom like to call it, to wear on my travels both to and from my destination. This eliminates having to bring separate outfits for each day of traveling and creates more space for the good stuff! 

Always travel in style!

More outfits from my getaway coming soon so be sure to check back.

Poolside Prints and Pok-a-Dots

Bathing Suit Top: Kate Spade  Cover Up: Forever 21  Hat: Etsy  Sunnies: H&M

Back to reality today, but still stuck in vacay mode!

As my girl crush Miranda Lambert would say, "my pink sunglasses, always makes the world look a little bit better", which is so true and just one reason why this poolside look was a favorite from my trip. Get these shades for under 10 dollars from H&M! 

Anything pok-a-dotted makes me smile and of course Kate Spade knows how to win me over, but we all know bathing suits can be expensive so I went the cheap route and bought just the Kate Spade top then paired it with a generic pair of black bottoms. Who would ever know!? Then I mixed prints with pok-a-dots by adding a floral cover up, for a little pop.

 Of course my infamous Love & Labels hat appears again. This hat makes me feel so glamorous, its definitely an eye catcher plus completely personalized which I adore and its perfect for blocking out sun. So many perks, so much to love about one little hat!

Keep in touch, more outfits from my trip will be on the blog soon!

Pom-Pom's and Palm Trees

Jumpsuit: Aerie  Clutch: Tuckernuck  Shoes: DSW  Sunglasses: Ray Bans

Please ignore the very pink (and yes also very painful) sunburn and feast your eyes on one of my fav and first outfit of the trip! This jumpsuit was a last minute pick up from Aerie, pre vacation and boy am I glad I snagged it! It also comes in black online and in stores I saw an olive green version. It is very light, which is perfect for hot and humid destinations (and does wonders for sunburned skin!) The thing I love about this jumpsuit and really most jumpsuits to be honest is it has a palazzo pants feel and I LOVE palazzo pants! How can you not they are the most comfortable piece of clothing ever and they are totally acceptable to wear in public, that's what I'm talking about!

Guess what else I'm talking about!? My to die for Tuckernuck pom-pom clutch! Tiny little colorful pom-poms make me happy! This clutch is spacious, which I find to be a bonus since most clutches can't even fit a pair of sunglasses in them and it matches more than you can imagine with its multicolored pom-pom madness.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll catch up with you soon!

Jamaican Me Crazy

Water Bottle: Swell  Bathing Suit: Aerie  Sunglasses: Ray Ban  Flip-Flops: Tory Burch  Portable Charger: Anthropologie  Passport Cover: Kate Spade  Hat: Etsy  Pineapple Cup: Urban Outfitters  Kimono: Forever 21  Crop Top: Forever 21  Palazzo Pants: Forever 21  Brown Sandals: DSW  Make-up Bag: Nordstroms  Travel Bag: Longchamp

(I have linked similar items if my exact items were unavailable)

 

The count down is real y'all! I'm off to Jamaica in the morning, so I've put together a little guide for what to include in your carry on, check it out!

First and foremost, and most importantly, when traveling out of the country do not forget your passport! Get a cute passport cover or whatever you need to do to remember it. Trust me you'll be super annoyed if you get all the way to the airport only to discover you can't get through security. My current passport cover is Kate Spade and its cute pok-a-dot print makes me want to bring it everywhere, making it near impossible to forget.

I always like to pack a beach outfit, which for me is a bathing suit, a cover up, my flip flops, sunglasses and a hat. This means less time digging through my suitcase for an outfit and more time soaking up the rays! My bathing suit choice this time around was my new, pink one -piece from Aerie, matched with a floral cover up from Forever 21, and of course my beloved customized hat! I can not wait to sport this chic beachy look this week, I'm excited already!

 Along with your beach outfit, you're carry on should also include one outfit in case your luggage comes late or is lost (hopefully this never happens to anyone!) But, in the rare occurence that it does it is always nice to have just a couple back up pieces. This assures that no matter  what you won't miss any vacay time! I went for a versatile look that can be worn day or night, a pair of olive palazzo pants with a cream crop top and brown lace up sandals. I won't be missing any vacay time thats for sure! 

Miscellaneous items I always like to include are 1) a portable charger, mines from Anthro and has the most adorable flamingos flamingling all over it! LOVE! 2) A water bottle, which has to be empty until you reach the other side of the gates at the airport, but I always like to bring my own water bottle to fill up for the plane ride or to use at the beach throughout the week. This go around I'm using a Swell water bottle. They are great for the beach because they keep whatever you're drinking ice cold all day long! 3) A good read! I am a huge beach reader, so I always make sure I have one or sometimes two good reads for a beach get away. Put it in your carry on and you can start it on the plane! 4) My selfie prep kit! A.K.A my make up bag. It's always nice to have your make up bag handy at all times you never know when you might need to freshen up and it makes for easy access when you reach your destination. 5) The t-shirt is all for the beach vibes 6) Last ,but not least I threw in my pineapple cup, this way you can get your cocktail (or mocktail) in style! Cheers!

Pack everything up in your favorite carry on bag, and hasta la vista, you're ready for you're beach getaway! Im traveling with my Le Pliage XL travel Longchamp bag in black. It fits everything, the perfect carry on item.

Hope this finds you well for your next travels. I'm out of here early in the AM. I will be trying to blog while away, but I'm not sure how much internet access I will have so bare with me!

Cheetah Print & Leather

Shoes: Urban Outfitters  Jeans: Levis (Vintage Twin)  Belt: Urban Outfitters  Jacket: Charlotte Russe  Shirt: Forever 21  Sunnies: Ray Ban

Feeling bad to the bone in this get up. Leather and cheetah is a no fail combo for any day of the week, and these cheetah print babies, linked above, are on sale! Scoop them up while you can they are super sassy and just as comfy. I've also been loving these high wasted, vintage jeans I picked up back at the beginning of the fall. They add that extra something to a look. Mine happen to be from a pop up store called The Vintage Twin, but vintage jeans are super easy to thrift and cost way less! I was unable to find my exact jeans so I've linked The Vintage Twin website incase you want to check out some of their other clothing, as well as a similar pair of Levis from ASOS. Shop away!

A Look To Love

Shoes: Zara  Pants: Express  Sweater: Urban Outfitters  Lipstick: Mac Coat: H&M (similar one linked here)  Hat: Nordstroms

Valentines day has come and gone but I have yet to share my love for this look! 

This look leans towards the more neutral side to allow my sweet, little, red babies to share their pop of color. My new kicks were a steal from Zara, only 30 bucks for these shiny eye catchers, can you believe that!? Their baby block heels give you just enough height and style to rock them all day long. A beanie is always a great idea as well, especially for me in the city its nice to style a cute hat with an outfit to help keep warm. I love the depth, my leopard beanie brings to this outfit with its pattern.

Let's talk tops now. Urban has me crushing on my new sweater. I have had my eye on this sweater for a while and finally broke down and treated myself. Because... Love yourself!  If you're looking to buy this sweater, as I highly recommend you do seeing as its super cozy, I suggest sizing up. I am wearing a size large. I prefer my sweaters to be more on the unfitted side for a comfier/ more laid back look. 

I will be trying to post more constantly on my blog, but bare with me! This semester I have taken on an internship 3 days a week and have classes the remaining 2 days. This leaves me little free time, but I plan to dedicate that free time to getting my blog back up to speed and keeping y'all update with all things fashion!

Gray Scale

Shirt: Zara  Shoes: Steve Madden  Scarf: ILYMIX (similar one linked) Belt: Urban Outfitters  Coat: Forever 21  (similar one linked) Jeans: Zara 

I'm back in my city y'all! Oh how I missed NYC. And yes I died my hair pink! Surprise (; My true colors finally came out.

It is so nice to be back and roaming around in the hustle and bustle that epitomizes NYC. But of course my first weekend back called for a day out and about with my roomie and this is what I conjured up for an outfit! 

The wind has been brutal here lately so its been tough trying to stay warm. My new coat from Forever 21 has made the cold 100x more bearable. It locks in warmth and screams cute, it was love at first sight. Speaking of love, my new Steve Madden, platform, sneakers are the best! Pom poms make everything a little more fun if I do say so myself. I got these baby's at Nordstroms and they come in black and peach in addition to the gray. Bell sleeves have my heart just as much as pom poms though. Despite the shirts neutral gray color the bell sleeves and ribbed style give it an awesome flare. No color doesn't mean no style, the gray scale colors allowed me to let my pink hair pop, and give an edgy style to the look. I felt fierce and fashionable (as one always should) running around the city in this get up. 

Stay fierce & fashionable.

Cheetah On My Mind

Jacket: Forever 21 (Similar one linked here)  Ear Muffs: Grace (local boutique)  Shoes: Steve Madden  Necklace: Old Navy  Jeans: Express

Happy New Year to all! I hope 2017 is treating you oh so fabulously so far! 

I'm starting the New Year off as the real me, cheetah print and pink! (but a little note to self for next time it's 20 degrees - wear gloves!) My ears may have been toasty in my favorite furry ear muffs, but my black gloves would have been perfect for my nearly frozen fingers. Fur ear muffs though, everyone needs a pair! Mine are from a boutique in my home town, but Macy's sells a very similar pair , which I have linked here. I highly recommend scooping yourself up a pair if you live anywhere that experiences cold temps. They get the job done in style!

If I could wear this jacket every day of my life, I might do just that. It is warm, fun and definitely an eye catcher, and paired with pink velvet booties, you know you run the show. Cheetah and pink never disappoints. Its the perfect mix of sassy and chic.

 That's enough bundling up for me, I'm off to Miami tomorrow, so be ready for a quick change in scenery. Bring on the warm weather!

Button Up

Hat: Grace (Boutique)  Shoes: Madewell  Dress: H&M  Purse: H&M  Shirt: Uniqlo

Happy Friday everyone! I'm bringing you a little overall lovin' to start off the freaking weekend.

This denim overall dress is my latest craze and for all the right reasons! This dress gives me heart eyes, its take on a classic closet staple is just what you need to keep your overall game intact. Overalls are one of my personal favorites. They can be worn in any season when styled weather accordingly and being a 90's baby overalls hold a special place in my heart. They are part of the 90's are back revolution we so often hear about, only this time with a new spin on things, this dress being the perfect example. 

For this time of the year, I love the overall look with a sweater, turtle neck or a t-shirt and scarf. Since, I went with the plain white turtle neck for this outfit, I jazzed things up with everyones favorite pom pom beanie. Knitted and neutral is key here, seeing as this is a fairly simplistic and minimalistic outfit, a fun neutral hat adds some flare without completely taking away from the chic black and white combo. Plus, who am I kidding, it was cold and this hat kept my head warm. Cute and warm. Double score.

Tule Cool For You

Skirt: Necessary Clothing  Shoes: Steve Madden  Shirt: Marshall's  Sunglasses: Express

I'm back! Sorry for the brief hiatus, I've been crazy busy over here and have had a few technical difficulties along the way. But, all is good and I am back in action!

I'm starting off with one of my favorite outfits for the holiday season. I have been swooning over all things black and red buffalo check lately, my shirt being only one of many. This shirt is actually a dress and can be worn very casually or dressed up like I've done here. As for my shoes, I highly recommend grabbing yourself a pair of these little pretties, they add such a cute flare to an outfit and are comfortable, but give you just the right heel to strut your stuff. They are the ideal combination of strappy heel meets block heel. Then I added some tule into the mix and how can one go wrong there? This midi tule skirt brings me back to my childhood tutu days and I am loving every second of reliving that. With a little pop of red lipstick this outfit is brought to life. I can't see how anyone could have a bad day while wearing an outfit as fun as this.

Wearing this outfit brought me so much happiness. They do say "gotta look good to feel good". There is just something about tule, block heels and a plaid combo that wins me over, this look is the epitome of upbeat, stylish and holiday feels. It's an outfit perfect for a holiday party, a cookie swap or just for feeling F A B U L O U S!

Fur Real?

Jeans: Vintage  Shirt: Uniqlo  Booties: Old Navy  Purse: Coach  Vest: Grace

Nothing like some city foliage. Central Park has been calling my name so, me and my roommate took a stroll over to my happy place this weekend. The weather was beyond beautiful, no coats necessary, with the weather up in the 60's it was perfect vest weather, and who doesn't love an opportunity to wear a fur vest? 

Ever since the weather has gotten cooler though I have been loving my turtle necks that I purchased from Uniqlo. They are perfect for layering! They have them in different thicknesses for more or less warmth and multiple colors as well, Uniqlo is the perfect place for all your basic T-shirt and sweater needs.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! Is any one else already just as excited for thanksgiving as I am? Two more days and I'll be home for break, can't wait to see my family and snuggle my little pup!

Monday's Are For Maroon

Skirt: Forever 21  Sweater: Grace  Purse: Coach  Sunglasses: Dolce & Gabbana  Watch: Michael Kors

Just a last minute throw together for a a shoot in SoHo the other day. Anything maroon makes me feel so fall, so naturally I can not get enough of my button up maroon skirt from Forever 21, topped off with a simple grey sweater and a classic pair of OTK's (Add a pair of tights and an extra layer over your sweater on a chilly fall day!). What could be more fall-esque?  Happy Monday!

Xoxo Kenz

Plaid to See You

Dress: Marshalls  Shoes: Steve Madden (Nordstroms)  Belt: Urban Outfitters

This outfit makes me all sorts of happy! First off, I love that the fall weather is just perfect enough for me to wear a dress and open toe booties without freezing to death.

But, lets also talk about what a steal this dress actually was. I found it at Marshalls for only 20 bucks! So cute, so cheap, am I right! Originally the dress came with a cute belt of the same pattern that tied in a bow, but I couldn't help but spice up the outfit with my UO belt. It gave the outfit that little bit of edge it needed to be complete. Holla, if you love a good statement belt. HOLLAAA!

Happy Wednesday

City Chic

Shirt: Grace  Boots: Urban Outfitters  Jeans: Zara  Belt: Urban Outfitters  Purse: Coach  Jacket: Old Navy  Choker: Urban Outfitters

I am so excited to finally show you all my new leopard print booties from Urban Outfitters! So seeing as I current live above an Urban I accidentally (on purpose) seem to always find myself in there...oops! But there are no complaints here because I landed myself these totally fabulous booties for 20% off! I also snagged this belt while I was in there because why not! It's the latest craze and actually, believe it or not, goes for a great price at Urban, only $30.00. This chic city look is perfect for traipsing around, a graphic tee, ripped jeans and a fun pair of booties and you've got yourself a winner! Talk to y'all soon.

Jack's

As promised, here is my latest under the radar coffee find. There are always those days when I'm tired of the everyday Dunkin or Starbucks run and I'm just looking to switch things up. The other day me and my roomie checked out a local coffee shop down by the seaport called Jack's Stir Brew Coffee. You'll be amused by the names of their local flavors, Dirty Harry, Mad Max, Farmer Dan and the list goes on. I tried the Happy Jack, which is a honey cinnamon latte, and the coffee critic in me was not disappointed! Jack's has grown to have 6 other locations throughout NYC and the Hamptons, and is a great change from your everyday coffee rituals. If that isn't enough to convince you to try Jack's, then do it for the gram! Their coffee makes for a perfect insta pic!

Thanks a latte for stopping by, talk to y'all soon!
