inseam guide for tall women.
When it comes to denim, I consider myself an expert. Growing up as the tallest girl in school,I spent years looking for denim that didn't fit like flood pants. And boy, was that hard. You name it, I have probably tried it on.
Below I have shared my favorite brands for certain styles of denim based on the pieces that I have in my closet.
Bell Bottoms |
These were my go to style in middle school because they always ran longer than the other types of jeans. Free People has a great selection of bell bottoms that are never boring.

Rag and Bone |
Veronica Beard |
Stretchy Jegging |
Anthropologies Pilcro jeggings are my favorite stretchy workwear pant. I own the high waisted orange corduroy ones, that you can shop here.
American Eagle |
High Rise Skinny |
In my opinion, these is the most flattering style of denim, and the most versatile. My top pick for high rise jeans is J.Crew Lookout High Rise, but second place goes to Urban Outfitters BDG Cigarette High Rise.

my holiday wish list.
the pieces in my closet that I wear on repeat.
Forget the cardigans and khakis, let's spice things up. The patent leather creates a rock and roll edge that this romper needs. I kept it simple on the accessories because of the bold materials of this look. Add a leather jacket to contrast a glitzy piece.

Olive green is one of my favorite colors for fall. It is flattering on almost all skin tones and pairs well with everything. To me it is the perfect neutral color to integrate into your winter wardrobe.
how to wear velvet and metallic stars for the holidays. The holidays are coming up, so let's ring them in in style. Swap your sweater for a textured blazer, and get decked out in sparkles. I worked with LIT Boutique to create a fun holiday look. We paired textured red velvet and some sparkles to create the perfect look for a night out.
My new favorite piece to add to a holiday look is a fitted bodysuit. They hug your figure and create a tailored fit that a shirt can't match. Luckily for us brands are starting to take notice and creating unique styles that can be worn for formal occasions instead of for a night out. For an elevated twist on a holiday party look, I paired a sheer, high neck bodysuit with green corduroy trousers. It's sexy, yet sophisticated and even though the suit is sheer, it doesn't feel over the top. Plus the green trousers also add a pop of color and a holiday feel.

giving you those fall coffee shop vibes and fall outfit inspiration with this statement sweater.
There is a familiar nostalgia about the crispness of fall air and the transition to boots and sweaters. It's a bittersweet goodbye to summer, but a warm welcome to the colder weather that us New Englander's know so well. There is something refreshing about fall to me, it feels like the beginning of something. It's time to reset and restart and this reflects in the way that we dress for fall.
Surprisingly, the best work wear investment I made was in a black pleated midi skirt. I say surprisingly because I am not much a of a skirt wearer, I'm usually in jeans. However, this skirt has provided me with a reliable base to plan work wear and street wear around. I have worn it with a blouse and heels for work and changed into a tee and sneakers for exploring the city. It has been my key transition piece for fall and spring, and always excites me season after season.
how to wear the statement sleeves trend for a work outfit and for a casual outfit. 80's are back. When I first heard this I cringed, the 80's are my least favorite decade in fashion. The styles were so out there and gaudy with neon colors, perms and ill fitting clothing (MC Hammer pants). Even after seeing the Saint Laurent sparkle boot during fashion week my feelings haven't changed much. However, when details are taken from the decade and simplified, and modernized, I can get behind them. Like this simplified statement sleeve with a wrap waist. In addition to being "on trend", it creates a flattering silhouette. The volume of the sleeves paired with a slim waist, creates the illusion of a smaller med section. I chose to pair this H&M balloon sleeve top with high waisted denim and a monogram belt. This style can be overwhelming, so I recommend keeping the look simple. Here are some other ways that I plan on wearing it:
sharing my favorite Halloween costumes and Halloween makeup ideas.
Giving you some weekend outfit inspiration and sharing what I wear to explore the city, get brunch and go out for a night on the town.
experimenting with fall fashion and pairing polka dots and leather.
sharing my personal story with fake tanning and why you shouldn't make the same mistake I did.
