If you ask any fashionista, they’ll tell you that leggings are a must year round! As I mentioned in my previous post, for the longest time I shied away from leggings because I found most uncomfortable and itchy. When I did wear leggings, they were always worn inside out as a thermal layer underneath my jeans in the winter. Ever since I started wearing leggings from Lysse, I’ve turned a corner. What a whole new world I’ve been introduced to! I love how comfortable and easy they are to style. This outfit features black leggings in a casual & feminine look. I came across this ultra soft blush sweater at H&M the other day, I knew it would go so well with just about any bottoms in my closet especially these black leggings. As I continue to experiment with leggings, here are some outfit ideas for anyone who’s already in love with them.

STYLING LEGGINGS

Casual
Keep it cute and casual by pairing the leggings with an oversize knit top or sweater like the one featured in this post. For more warmth but still keeping the casual vibe, throw on a cute denim jacket. Cropped jackets are the best when you’re wearing an already oversized top. Shop this style

Sophisticated
A blazer and a slightly oversized dress shirt or tunic will instantly add sophistication to a pair of black leggings. Shop this style

Edgy
What could be more edgy and sexy than black leggings with a fitted leather jacket? Add texture and colors by wearing a scarf. Shop this style

Last but not least, here are the winners of the Lysse Giveaway: Maggie C, Samantha H, Ha D and Amanda S. Congratulation ladies! If you love this giveaway there will more in the near future. Stay tuned!

First dates can be so fun and exciting so the last thing you want to do is stress over what to wear on the day of. I’ve made my fair share of mistakes in the past by procrastinating until the very last minute deciding what to wear. The feeling of being rushed has led me to make some regretful fashion choices and made me feel subconscious and distracted throughout the date. You definitely don’t want that to happen to you! To feel confident on your date you have to feel comfortable with what you’re wearing. At least one day before the date, pick out two outfits that best reflect on your mood and is appropriate for the location of the date. Obviously, if you’re going for hike or a casual outdoor activity, you definitely want to leave those 4 inch high heels at home. =) (more…)

Hello everyone! You know the saying, if you love something so much keep wearing it! We’re absolutely loving the Bohemian style so the girls of Coast of Coast Style Series (Jess, Johnnalynn and I) have come together to share our favorite bohemian looks featuring Deb Shops.

This simple bohemian maxi dress adorned with crochet prints is so adorable and comfortable. It was really hot the day we shot this outfit on the hills (around 90s with a slight breeze), but I didn’t feel scorched in this dress. Since I haven’t worn my black fedora hat in a long time, I decided to take it out for spin and paired it with this dress. Totally adoring this red, black and gold ensemble.
