For goodness sake stop standing in front of that darling closet of yours and find something to wear! I know, I know, there’s nothing there right? Wrong! In fact I think you aren’t looking hard enough. I’ve come to terms with my closet. The things that I have I work worth, the things that I can’t afford (yet) , I save for and come very close to those things in the meantime.
One thing that I’ve learned about blogging is you must be you! Don’t walk around in the “blogger uniform”. Lately there has be a unspoken form of unity among fashion bloggers. They all wear the same darn thing. Being trendy must consist of a balance and in that balance you must include yourself. What better person could we possibly be other than ourselves?
Now, stare deep into your closet (again)and wear the threads that represent you. No one could wear them better. Let’s give those threads a name “A Style of Our Own”. Good day in style my friends :-)
Top: Forever 21
Shoes: Zara (last season)
Necklace: Zara (last season but forever 21 has a new version ;-) )
While some may have started their morning with the typical cup of coffee, I began my morning with style.com. It has to be one of my most favorite places; for it brings me as close I could possibly be to the runway…well that’s until I work my way up the fashion ladder.
Balmain has been my favorite for a few seasons now and of course I’m in love with the latest show as well. Yes, the designer is known for threads of bondage… You know, short dresses gripping a woman’s form and holding things in and up like never before! Bondage was definitely present in this collection but say hello to the Balmain drape! Pants and tops draped over the models as they strut down the runway. A golden yellow hue paired up with black leather, crisp white, double breasted pieces, and satin lapels, yes of courses I can’t forgetting the lengthy flowing flare pants. Take a peek.

I use to think that Pre-Fall and Winter Collections were my favorite but I’m beginning to sway towards the looks of Resort 2015. I’m going to create a post with my favorite looks from Resort 2015 but MSGM has a collection that couldn’t be divided.
Feel free to blame the Floridian in me for loving such a thing; I’m sure you would just love the collection just as much as I do.
MSGM Resort 2015 is crisp, breezy, vibrant, and clean. Mini skirts are paired with boxy tops, sandals of course… I mean it is Resort. One catch, sandals… with a platform…flatforms maybe? Kimono-style outwear, flowing maxi skirts, palazzo pants, visors and such. Pineapples get in where they fit in and boy do they fit. There’s so much that I could go on about but I’ll let you see for yourself.

This summer I don’t have much free time outside of work so my outfit selection has become rather slim. These pants were an investment since I don’t normally spend 100 dollars on a pair of trousers but aren’t they great? They are one of my favorite staples for the summer. The fabric is light and breathable. They are from one of my favorite collections (within my reach); the Zara Woman Collection that is. So far I’ve paired them of with a fresh poplin shirt, a graphic t, and a black button up for going out. I’ve worn these pants I don’t know how many times but they sure are great! What is apart of your summer uniform?
