Sweet Summertime

In years past, especially during my college years, summer was always spent counting down the days until I returned to my college campus and be reunited with all my friends.  Now, I am wishing for the summer to slow down, so I can savor the warmer weather and longer days of daylight a little bit more.  This summer was my first summer in the “working world” and I soon discovered how quickly the summer days just pass by.  I would spend my weekdays eagerly awaiting for the weekends and when the weekend did arrive it went in a flash.  Just… View Post

Summer Stripes

If you slide open my closet door, one would instantly be able to tell my obsession with jumpsuits has spiraled out of control (if it wasn’t clear on my Instagram too).  Jumpsuits are my summer go-to and I have a feeling that because of the long pants, they will be transitioned into the autumn months with a light sweater or jacket.  Not so surprisingly, today’s post is all about my current favorite jumpsuit that recently was added to my collection, so keep on scrolling to see how I style yet another jumpsuit. If there is one store that feeds my… View Post

Tips For Writing The Perfect Resume

Hello everyone! After writing my “Lessons Learned After Graduation” post a few months ago, (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here) I received tons of feedback regarding my post graduate job and tips on how to land your perfect job after college, or just your dream job in general. So in today’s post, I am talking about one very important factor in your job application process, your resume.  If you’re like me a resume is super hard to put together, because I struggle with deciding what skills and experiences are deemed resume worthy or trying… View Post

Living On The Edge

One of the hardest questions I’m always asked is, “how do you define your style?” I always find this question challenging to answer because I can never accurately define my fashion style because it changes every day and every night, depending on my mood, the weather, my style inspirations, and so on.  Every fashion lover can agree the best thing about fashion is that you don’t have to stick to one style, but every day is a different day to use clothing to express yourself.  Some days you will find me dressing like a hippie, other days more preppy, even some days I’m wearing pink and more feminine pieces, or the complete opposite and wearing leather and all… View Post

Practicing Natural Ways To Care For Your Face

Have you tried everything to get flawless skin, but have found it to be one of the biggest mysteries in life? You are not alone.  No matter how much we put into finding the perfect products, they seem to work a little bit at the very outset but end up going straight in the garbage just as soon as the usual problems come back.  Looking after our face isn’t just about a skincare routine that is easy and beneficial, but it’s also about the other practices, namely being as natural as possible. While we all do our utmost to be… View Post

Jump (suit) Into The Week

All week I spend the days eagerly waiting for the weekend and when the weekend finally arrives, I blink and then it’s Monday again.  Anyone else feel the same way?  Well I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, I know I did by exploring Central Park and visiting new, trendy restaurants in the West Village and Soho with friends. Ever since moving to the city, I feel like I have to be stylish 24/7 and even when I do “dress up” I’m always envious of everyone’s outfits in the city. Although, I don’t feel nearly as fashionable as everyone else… View Post

My New York City Apartment Tour

Hello everyone! This blog post is way overdue.  For those of you who don’t know, in March, I followed my dreams and heart and moved to New York City.  And for those who already knew that because you follow me on Instagram and keep up to date with all my city adventures, it has been a wonderful past couple of months as I make one of my favorite cities my new home. I knew once I signed the lease for my studio apartment on the Upper West Side, I had the exciting chance to decorate my new space the way… View Post

Denim On Denim

One style that I always felt funny wearing, just simply because I never perfected the look was denim on denim.  Whenever, I attempted to follow the denim on denim, I just felt like I was straight out of a movie or television show from the 90s, so I applaud the fashion bloggers who can wear perfectly head to toe denim.  In today’s style post, I finally broke through my fear of denim on denim and found the secret to perfecting the look…different shades of denim paired with other classic pieces from your wardrobe. One tip when it comes to matching denim… View Post

Best Dressed At The Met Gala 2018 

Just like every year, my invitation to the annual Met Gala must have gotten lost in the mail.  This year, living so close to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I had this strong desire to crash the one of the most fashionable events of the year.  Instead, I just streamed the red carpet arrivals on my laptop and vigorously took notes on this year’s theme and how the stars interpreted the theme when it came to their style choices. It has been a tradition here on LivForStyle to share my opinions on which celebrities owned the red carpet at some… View Post

Mother + Daughter Style ft. Coastal

Today, on LivForStyle we have a very special guest…my beautiful, inspiring mom.  Mother’s Day is right around the corner (Sunday May 13th to be exact), so today’s style post is dedicated to my wonderful mom and all those great moms out there.  Most of the time, my mom is behind the scenes and plays a major role on the LivForStyle page as my photographer.  But, today instead of asking her to only take my photos, I decided to point the camera in her direction and let her have her blogger moment, I mean after all, she has learned from the best.    Recently, my mom… View Post

Lessons Learned After Graduation

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since I graduated from college, the end of May to be exact.  Last year at this time, I was entering my final month and a half of college and although it was one of the greatest times of life, it was also one of the scariest.  The fear of the unknown crept into me during those final weeks on my college campus. The unknown of what life after college was going to entail, because I knew once the end of May hit, I was still jobless and was moving back home,… View Post

Come On Spring

Currently, wishing it was spring or at least warm outside, but as I write this sentence we just experienced snow this morning.  Something about the month of March I just despise.  Maybe it’s because I get my hopes up for warm weather and sadly get disappointed with cold temperatures and snow on the ground.  I wish after the holidays we can just fast forward to spring/summer, but sadly I am not Mother Nature and have zero control over the weather.  However, I do have control over my outfit, so today I am embracing spring like patterns and colors in the hope that Mother Nature will bless us with an early spring.  No better… View Post

Salvaging Your Favorite Clothes From Common Fashion Disasters

We’ve all been involved in a fashion disaster or two. The idea of ripping your pants down the middle may seem comical, but it’s less than funny when it happens. Few fashion disasters are, especially when your favorite pieces fall foul to the cruel hands of fate. But, nothing lasts forever, and relationships with the best clothes often end this way. In truth, though, few fashion disasters are unsalvageable. Would you give up on a relationship with anyone else so quickly? Of course not. We fight for what we love, and you should fight for those damaged clothes. To help… View Post
