(Sigh) Why can’t summer last forever? It seems like the season takes forever to get here, and when it does finally arrive, it leaves in a blink of an eye. I know the official end to summer isn’t until the end of September but I realized the days are getting shorter and the kiddies are back in school (same with me) but I can’t complain because I had one of the best summers ever. Some of the highlights of my summer include interning with a great fashion company, learning tons about the fashion industry, having more time to blog, and vacationing to the Hamptons a few times. In today’s post, I am showing you one of my favorite summer outfits that can be easily transitioned into the fall. It took me some time to warm up to the flared leg trend, but I am obsessed with all things flared. What struck me the most about my Madewell pants is the flared detail and the beautiful rose color. I believe this deep rose color will be perfect for the fall. The color kind of reminds me of the leaves soon to be turning colors. Since I am “new” to the flared…

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. I don’t want to limit myself to any new adventures so today I decided to go on a mini hike and by mini hike I mean go explore the lake and wooded area of my friends backyard.  It’s a start and a chance to show you one of my favorite casual hot weather looks.  Keep on reading to see how I embark on a new adventure.  Just call me livfornature. 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…

Raise your hand if you took full advantage of the Zara sale this year. If you saw me right now, you would see both of my hands raised because I totally went nuts over the Zara sale. The annual Zara sale usually starts in June and lasts until what it seems like when they run of out sale merchandise. Practically all their merchandise is marked down. A fashionistas dream. However, if you missed this sale, I believe there is a very, very limited selection of sale items in stores and online. But don’t worry because this huge sale made room for their new collections and let me tell you Zaras new collection is on point. Can’t wait to shop some more. Sorry wallet. Throughout the month of June and July, I found myself visiting Zara by the train station every morning before work and every evening after work. Walking by the store everyday was dangerous. Some days leaving empty handed and other days scoring great deals. So with that being said my wardrobe greatly increased thanks to Zara and I can’t wait to style my new pieces. I already styled my new favorite Zara blouse and flared jeans for one…

We all know the popular combos like oil and vinegar, peanut butter and jelly, fire and ice, milk and cookies, and so on. In the fashion world, I have discovered some combos that work so well together, including denim and leopard, hence the name of this post. The denim trend is so hot this season. Lately, head to toe denim is the way to dress, which is why I love my denim dress from Forever 21. It has easily become my summer staple because of the endless ways to style this dress. It’s a simple dress with stitching and faux pocket detailing, and it’s the simplicity that makes it special. With this dress denim is no longer just your favorite pair of jeans. So now with the first part, the denim part, of the fashion combo complete, let’s move on to the leopard. Leopard is easily my favorite print. It can never go out of style. Any pop of leopard can instantly transform your outfit from boring to spectacular and that is just what my Sam Edelman leopard print high tops do. These shoes certainly make a statement and paired with a simple denim piece they really pop. Any type…

Boho chic is defined as a type of style being influenced by bohemian and hippie looks. Think floral prints, warm colors, fringe, round sunglasses, flowing pants and skirts, and so on. Look to celebs like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Nicole Richie for inspiration. I am so excited to be the co-host of Michelle (Michelle’s Pa(i)ge) and Ana’s (Northwest Blonde) weekly link up post. It’s an honor to be part of this fun theme because it is so me. I love the boho style and these ladies certainly know how to dress, so make sure to check them out. I always feel fashion forward when I wear flared pants, especially with a wild and colorful pattern. I have to admit, I always feel like people on the street are going to mistaken these pants for pajamas, but then I think these are way to stylish to be pajamas. I love my flowing pants from Target, especially the bold print and colors. I feel like any hippie would be caught wearing these pants because they are comfy, trendy, and perfect for any free spirit. I kept the top simple because what could compete with these pants. I am…
