When it comes to coordinate pieces, making sure they don't feel juvenile is important. I broke up the set by layering a jean jacket on top and buttoning the top two buttons, exposing some skin and changing the originally fitted silhouette.

sharing my weekend outfits with you from New York to Nashville.
Maybe it's been the cold front, or maybe its just me, but I've been v lazy these days. The shirt and jean combo hasn't been cutting it for me, so I decided to spice things up and start utilizing the jumpsuits in my closet. Not only are they easier to wear (hello, it's already a full outfit), but you know they look good because they are one full piece already.
The Room Label sent me this beautiful clementine colored strapless jumpsuit and I fell in love. After patiently waiting for the cold weather to pass, I wore it for the first time to Jordan's sister's wedding in late April. And even though temps were nowhere near warm, I wore it with pride (and goosebumps). Aside from being obsessed with the sleek and flattering cut, I absolutely love the idea of having a linen jumpsuit to last me through summer. I picture wearing it for casual daytime looks, like ones similar to below, but I know that I can just as easily throw on a pair of strappy heels (like I did here) and dress it up.

I accessorized this jumpsuit with white sneakers and earrings to make it more summery. I kept the look casual with sneakers and a denim jacket, and it was perfect for the activities that Elissa and I post shoot.

When it comes to silhouettes, the paper bag waist pant has peaked my curiosity. I was first drawn to the style when I saw how flattering they were on Kendall Jenner. She wore a paper bag waist trouser with a strapless top, and I've been intrigued ever since. When paired correctly, they have the ability to slim waists, and give a unique, yet figure flattering silhouette. Before purchasing these pants, make sure that they are fitted properly to your proportion because it's crucial that they hit you at the slimmest part of your waist. Lucky for me Hope Ave. sent me a pair of paper bag waist culottes that fit perfectly (shop these exact pants here, and in mustard here). My favorite thing about these pants is how figure flattering they are, how formal the material looks, and the fact they they also have pockets. As a tall woman, it's almost impossible to find a long trouser in a paper bag waist, so a culotte is the next best thing. If you struggle with finding pants, a culotte is the perfect alternative, just make sure that they hit at the right spot. If you're short, make sure that they hit right under the knee, and for taller women, mid shin is good.
Just remember to pair them with a fitted, or cropped top so that they can best accentuate your shape.

These pants have been on my wardrobe list for a while, so when I received this pair, I was ecstatic. In addition to being easy to wear for streetwear, they are also great for the office. They have an old school, tailored feel to them that can be transitioned in many different ways. I paired them with a fitted turtleneck, camel coat and heels.
