IT WAS LIKE 1998 AND MY COUSIN CAME TO THE HOUSE WITH HER BOYFRIEND, BOBBIN LOL! SHE HAD ON FUBU OVERALLS AND THIS WHITE TUBE TOP. I WAS LIKE, DAMN THAT OUTFIT WAS SO COOL TO ME. MY COUSIN IS FIVE YEARS OLDER AND I WASN'T OLD ENOUGH TO WEAR ALL OF THAT STUFF SO I LIVED VICARIOUSLY.

Kimonos are the ultimate street style piece you can wear any season. Lately, I have noticed some many KAWAII (CUTE) KIMONOS. It's really a staple piece to have for those unpredictable weather days or just to clean up your entire look. Following some fashion blogs myself, I see a lot of kimono-inspired jackets for the Fall, as seen on the runway for instance by Etro. I study the way the looks are styled and the various layers of color and texture.
I've got some looks for you to try this Spring/Summer! I am ALL about the LAIDBACK LUXElook because it's a very comfortable, easy, effortless swag to pull off. I'm pairing swimwear with some STREETWEAR/CASUAL pieces and I want you to try it!
Talk about the most ready-to-wear piece you could ever own! I love the Track Pant trend, you could literally wear these anywhere. It's the most versatile pant for someone on the go or for lounging. It's a win-win!
For this style post, I was inspired by my favorite video game when I was a kid and my hero, Bruce Lee. For as long as I can remember, martial arts has been in my world. Not many would know this, but I am a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and my brother is a second degree.
This season I've been into the "silk trend" for sure. It's really adds good detail and sophistication to a rather average pair of denim jeans or trousers. One thing that I love about the look of this fabric is that it's so comfortable and you can wear it as an accessory because of the glow it gives. Jacquard on the hand is a print that I have grown fond of and I think it's definitely a winter trend.
This Fall, I'm seeing some really neat Jacquard prints, off the shoulder sweaters, cozy joggers, and leather statements. Layers are perfect for the cooler weather so that's what's inspiring me at the moment.
Over the years, I've made a lot of style mistakes! Overly high waisted jeans, colors that wash me out, too tight of tops, and one too many lace up heels! LOL! The truth is, I really believe in a simple formula and rely on just a few staple items. I've become a little more brave in trying new lengths and styles for my body type...
Because Fall is my favorite season, I love to push colors that are bold yet functional. It's still summer as I write this, but I truly love to live in my greys and olives, rock the burgundy, and kill the khaki! Those are just some of my go-to colors!
I love a hot summer in Texas…said no one ever! But actually, if you’re a student of the hot yoga practice, then you already know that the room is even hotter, 105 degrees that is. But what’s there to love about a hot room in the middle of the southern heat season?
