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…

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 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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Have you ever heard the term “off duty style?”  It usually refers to a model’s off duty style and I am far from being a model but I do have days where I don’t feel like dressing up or wearing tight, restrictive clothes.  Like today, I call this look my off duty style because it involves a simple, effortless formula…leggings, a loose fitting shirt, and sneakers. Keep on scrolling to read all about my off duty style. It’s still a mystery to me why leggings are so comfortable.  Maybe it’s just the cozy cotton material…

After a few years of long luscious locks accompanying the hippy vibe seen everywhere, 2018 is bringing back the short hair look, chopping off those tresses without a backwards glance.  From pixie cuts that are styled with longer bangs or ruffled into a natural ‘fairy from the woods’ look to bobs that just brush the shoulders, short hair is back with a bang. Image Credit: Pixabay Hollywood is all about finding the next new look and celebrities like Olivia Culpo, Kim Kardashian and Cate Blanchett are already rocking some of the hottest trends.  If you…

Life is all about making ethical choices.  And believe it or not, beauty and fashion is an industry ripe for questionable ethics.  There is something we can all do about this now, in the modern age. Whether you are just out of college, or you’re looking for a way to give back to society, there are simple ways for us all to contribute, and you can do this in your fashion choices.   How can we do this?

Remember when you were in elementary school and the highlight of your school day was art class, or was that just me? Well anyway doing arts and crafts was my favorite and still is, but there was no better project than one that involved paint.  It was always a blast to dip my paint brush in my favorite colored paints and splatter it on a white piece of paper.  Sure, it made a mess, but it was the mess that made the best looking art pieces. I reminisce about this project simply because my sweater…

Beauty and fashion, from a critical and pessimistic perspective, could be considered as a waste of time.  Surely it’s just time spent in narcissism, painting our faces and wearing the best new clothes in an effort to look better than the next person?  Surely we have too high an opinion of ourselves to even begin in the first place, and this is emphasized in the fact that we continually spend our money to achieve such an aim? Pexels Not so.  In fact, what was mentioned above could not be more wrong.  Fashion and beauty are…

We all know my relationship with the winter season.  It’s not just the gloomy, snowy weather, the inability to tan by a pool, or checking the weather every day to make sure no snow is in the forecast that will cause an inconvenience.  What it’s really about  is not being able to show off a killer outfit because you have to worry about bundling up.  Luckily, this winter season I don’t have to worry about hiding a great outfit because my new coat makes a statement and also keeps me so warm.  Keep on reading…
