The Rules Are, There Are No Rules

If you know me at all, then you must know that color will always be a topic of conversation. I bore people day in and out about the importance of color and what works with their skin tone. Again, boring for you but so much fun for me! I am going to let you in on a little secret... although color is very important on top, there are no rules when wearing color as a bottom. Woop Woop!  I love loop holes. Please note, if for some reason you do find a rule, throw it out the window... thanks!

Okay, so lets take a scary color like orange. I personally love orange; it is so vibrant and full of life. Orange also happens to be a good color on my warm skin tone; sorry, not sorry. Unfortunately, cool skin tones tend to look washed out when wearing orange on top. This is just one reason why many people are scared of this color, and I don't blame you. But you don't have to be scared anymore.
Here is just one way to wear it. I paired a fun orange skirt from Zara, pockets included (because who doesn't love pockets??), with a simple white crop top and a turquoise necklace. Just to add a little more flavor, I wore my favorite Stan Smiths. Today was a more casual day, but if I were going to brunch or a daytime event, I would either wear this outfit with nude wedges or a nude pointy toe pump. 

Tip of the Day: Pointy toe pumps make your legs look longer... wedges have the opposite affect. If you need help deciding, feel free to post a comment.

Whatever you do, remember to always have fun in orange!
C'est la vie

I Regret Nothing!

My two loves in life are food and fashion. Let's be honest, what can be better than the double F's! Think about it, in order to start your day right, you need to have the perfect outfit as well as a fabulous meal... unfortunately, the double F's are also my greatest weaknesses. Month after month, I shop at discount stores to save money. Then, one day I walk pass Burberry... I decide to just "take a look", and of course we all know what that means. Yes ladies, one lovely purchase later, I walk out of the store with a classically chic saddle bag. So, to wrap it up, all of my penny pinching went out the window. Needless to say, I regret NOTHING.

This bag will never go out of style and although I might age, "she" will always stay beautiful. It is the perfect bag to start the fall season, or even your new job! This bag will tell the world that you mean business; with style of course.

Now you might ask yourself what this has to do with food. Well it has everything to do with it! As a woman, not only am I seduced by luxurious fabrics, I, let's just say, I have a soft spot for delicious food as well. And, the same thing happened to me. After months of eating right and working out, one night I took a detour to Dandee Donuts #amazing. What can I say... they were calling my name.

Honestly, I don't know what I love more. Can you blame me????

C'est la vie
