Trend Alert: Blue.

All shades, shapes, and colors of blue are all the rage right now.

Denim. Indigo. Chambray. Dusty Blue. I don’t think I’ve seen these arrangements of colors more in my life until right now. Every clothing store you walk into displays denim jackets, chambray tops, indigo pants, the list goes on and on. I’ve never owned so much blue in my closet until this season. I can’t get enough of it. Blue goes hand in hand with menswear but for just for today, I wanted to show my girly side and prove you that you don’t have to wear pinks and purples to look feminine. A tulle skirt and sleek leather jacket will do the trick just fine. Blue is the new pink. You can walk into any store and pick up your perfect shade of blue but only Alexandra Grecco has this unique shade of Dusty Blue. This skirt is beautiful and can be worn with ANY color. Trust me, I’ll prove myself to you in future posts. This kind of “blue-grey” is the sweetest and most stylish color of 2015. You better hop on the bandwagon now or you’ll miss out. Alexandra Grecco, a New York-based vintage-inspired womenswear line, has much more to explore on their site (here.) I desperately needed a city backdrop for this look. Since this company is based out of the most gorgeous city in America I had to pretend that I was in NYC just for a moment. Like the color of this skirt, I was in the clouds.

Striped & High Waisted

IMG_7252 IMG_7264 IMG_7272 IMG_7290IMG_7260IMG_7263 IMG_7296_Fotor_CollageIMG_7273Will there ever come a day that I’m not on the hunt for menswear pieces? No. Never.

Menswear. You’ve heard this word before. It’s my all time favorite trend. You’ve also heard that before. Be prepared to see more menswear inspired outfit posts on my page. (Like you haven’t seen enough.) Menswear takes everything to the next level. It’s sleek. It’s sharp. I feel so powerful and trendy in menswear. I don’t have to show off a bunch of skin to turn heads. Nope. These trousers and my Urban Outfitters button up did plenty of that. I just love the contradiction of wearing bright orange red lipstick and curly hair with such a serious outfit. I’m having fun. That’s what it’s all about. Okay, I cannot get enough of these ZARA high waisted pants. I could live in them for the rest of my life. It’s such a good feeling investing in something with top notch material. Unlike most bow tie pants that are out there right now, these ones were made to last forever. They’re thick without being too heavy. They’re soft without being too cheap. They’re comfortable without looking like sweats. They are simply perfect. The olive green color caught my eye, not because it may resemble puke, but because it’s such a statement color without being too “in your face.” A very subtle statement piece and I’m all about that. Believe it or not but this shade of olive green can be paired with more than a handful of other colors. It’s like jeans…but better. What I love about high waisted trousers is that you can pretty much pair whatever you want with them: Button ups, crop tops, sweaters, long sleeves, turtlenecks. The list is endless… and so is my love for this outfit. So there.
