Can you believe that we're almost in the month of March? New Year's and Valentine's Day literally just flew by. I hope you're all just living your best life in 2018! Although, that can mean eating a whole pizza on a Saturday night watching Harry Potter movies 1-8 but hey, don't judge me. It was a fantastic weekend of lounging. Anyways, in today's post, I will be styling two outfits highlighting colors and pieces that never go out of style and is a staple throughout all seasons.

What I Wore: OUTFIT #1 Jacket: Pretty Little Thing | Pants: Pretty Little Thing | Booties: Pretty Little Thing | Sunnies: Zero UV

What I Wore: OUTFIT #2 Cami: Pretty Little Thing | Pants: Pretty Little Thing | Sunnies: Zero UV | Heels: Aldo

Fashion Tip: You get three tips today: 1) BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN FIRST. This is not as easy as it sounds. I think that fashion is meant to help accentuate your personal style. Help you express yourself through clothes and color. The confidence is in the person, not the clothes. So #1 is very important. 2) Know your body. It is important to to know what looks good on you and what doesn't. Not all cuts, colors and trends were meant for you. 3) Lastly. Once you get 1 & 2 down, fashion is easy peasy. As you change and evolve, your style does the same. Be fun, be fearless with fashion and everything you wear will be exactly as you planned it. Feel like a pretty little thing in pretty little thing.

(ps. this isn't a paid ad. I just really like their clothes.)

So what's going on with everyone? I hope everyone had a wonderfully romantic Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day, Uncoupling Day, Non-couple Day, or It's-complicated Day. I know a lot of people are looking forward to St. Patrick's Day and Spring Break soon but when you're as old as I am, Spring Break no longer exists. However, that doesn't mean I don't have tons of spring fling events on the weekends! :)

Now I know that when you're thinking Spring, you think of florals. Which is greaaaat... however. Please recall the most memorable quote in "The Devil Wears Prada" when Miranda says... "Florals for Spring? GROUNDBREAKING." What I mean by that is, although it's wonderful to include it in your line up, your entire Spring Fling collection shouldn't compose of it. Earlier I mentioned that I will be styling classic colors and pieces. I hope you're able to see that in my outfits. No one will ever tire of black and white. Those are classic colors that will remain in fashion until the end of time. All black everything or white on white on white. Both combinations have stood the test of time.

You've heard the saying, "what's old is new again" right? Well it's true. As history always finds a way to repeat itself, so does fashion. Crop tops, oversize denim jackets, backpacks. They're all back. The trick is to know how to add a modern twist to it. There are certain staple items I like to rotate. A good pair of booties. A comfortable, fitted pair of jeans. A denim jacket - oversized or normal. A sexy cami. No matter the season, these are all items that can be paired and styled with almost anything. I've been totally guilty of repeating a lot of these pieces over the last couple of months. But you want to be able to own pieces you like enough to wear them more than once. And because I don't have a money tree in my backyard or live like the Kardashians. Repeating outfits it literally my life. So might as well repeat clothes I LOVE.

I felt very chatty today, so thanks for reading! I hope you guys have a great week and stay tuned for more fashion tips. P.S. I'm going to HAWAII soon so will be recapping that for you guys too.

I would like to leave you with a couple quotes that get me through annoying days lol "Never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day." AND "If you are going to kick ass, you need kick ass shoes." Ok bye!
