The fashion world has been going nuts over the re- launch of a very popular at the start of the decade; I am talking about the matching velour Juicy Couture jumpsuit. Paris Hilton, Mariah Carey, Kim K, Brittany Spears, and many other celebs loved to model the Juicy Couture velour tracksuits back in the 2000s. It was because of these celebs, that at every birthday and Christmas I would always ask my parents for one of these most coveted fashion items. Sadly, I was never the girl rocking the popular hot pink tracksuit with the dangling J on the zipper. In fact, I was not mad at my parents for not buying me a Juicy jump suit; I loved wearing my knockoff velour suits from places like Old Navy and The Children’s Place. I could get like 10 jumpsuits for the price of one Juicy Couture tracksuit. But sadly, since I wore the jumpsuits without the J charm, I was not considered “cool,” oh well.   For $200, my parents would rather not spend it on a piece of fabric that was just a trend, and boy were they right because within a short time, the matchy match jumpsuit was no…

I’m not a real fan of nature.  Sure I love spending summer days by the pool or beach or walk aside a pigeon in New York City but that is about how outdoorsy I’ll get.  You won’t find me hiking or camping but I heard from friends who participate in those activities that it’s tons of fun.

Cool, casual, and comfy are the three rules for dressing for any outdoor summer activity.  You would think my shorts were pajamas because of the look and feel but they are not pajamas but super trendy and comfy shorts from H&M.  The geometric print and the warm color palette makes these my go-to shorts for the summer.  As much as I love denim shorts they can be super hot and restrictive so a nice…

Technically summer doesn’t officially end until the end of September but in the retail world it seems like after Fourth of July they switch to back to school and fall fashion mode. As much as I hate the thought of summer ending I’m trying to look on the bright side and focus on my love for fall fashion and of course the end of summer sales. Although most of the sales involve summer merchandise like shorts, rompers, tanks, and so on, with the art of layering you can certainly transition those pieces into the fall. It seems like H&M rarely has sales because their merchandise is so inexpensive anyway but 80% off select merchandise piqued my interest. With only a few minutes to shop I found two items that were calling my name. I first picked up this beautiful skirt. I love the unique tie-dye design and the mustard color. I can see myself wearing this skirt into the fall because of that rich color. The skirt is flowy and high-waisted which I like. It’s not as long as a maxi skirt but not as short as a mini skirt just the perfect in between. Since picking up this skirt…
