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

Endless Summer

(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… View Post

One With Nature

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… View Post

Halfway To The Weekend

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… View Post

Denim And Leopard

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… View Post

Boho Chic + Link Up

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… View Post

Boring outfits are so last season. I love taking simple pieces and adding fun accessories turning my outfit from drab to fab. Today’s post highlights my new colorful bag from Upcycled Styles.

I Love My Boyfriend (Jeans)

Who needs a boyfriend when you have a pair of fabulous jeans? Sadly, there’s no man in my life; however, I am in a committed relationship with my new boyfriend jeans from Madewell. It wasn’t until recently, I jumped on the boyfriend jeans bandwagon. It seems like the skinny jean trend has died out. Now all the buzz is about slouchy, shapeless jeans. Every time I try on a pair of boyfriend jeans, I feel stupid and out of place; however that changed when I took a risk and bought a pair of boyfriend jeans. It has taken some time… View Post

Color Splash

Since I spend most of my days and nights working on my blog, visiting my favorite fashion blogs, reading about the latest trends, and of course online shopping, my style is constantly changing. I have been inspired to step out of my comfort zone and experiment with different styles, patterns, and colors. Enter this bright, colorful dress. Before we say goodbye to summer and we start dressing in more dark colors, I decided to find a fun, colorful summer dress. Thanks to this spaghetti strapped tie-dye print dress from the online store Zaful, I was able to capture more of… View Post
