Off Duty Style

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 that adjusts with your body… View Post

Splat!

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 in today’s style post reminds… View Post

How To Use Your Beauty & Fashion To Celebrate Life

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 not silly or inconsequential things.… View Post

Baby It’s Cold Outside

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 to see how I’m keeping… View Post

Camo Cool

We all have that one article of clothing, one color, one pattern, and so on that we are just attracted to, you know that feeling whenever you walk by it you need to buy it even though you have several versions of it in your closet.  For me, that’s anything camo, especially camo jackets.  So of course on one of my recent shopping trips, a camo patterned jacket caught my eye and I had to purchase it to hang along with my 3 other camo jackets, oh well.  For me, camo is a neutral pattern, it never goes out of… View Post

Pearls & Denim

In the fashion world, denim and pearls are the hottest combo right now.  Just think of denim and pearls as your next peanut butter and jelly, oil and vinegar, tomato soup and grilled cheese, and so on.  Insert whatever food combo or combo in general that goes great together to understand the point I am trying to make, denim and pearls are the next big thing.  Now a days, you can find this stylish combo on a jacket, blouse, or pair of jeans and in today’s post it’s all about my pearl studded denim jacket. Before, I get into the… View Post

Summer Forever

Hello everyone! Remember me? It’s been way too long since my last post and here’s the explanation. So I recently started my first “big girl” job in New York City. Working for a social content platform in the city that I love has been the best post grad experience. For the last couple of months I was so worried I was never going to find a job, but I kept telling myself to be patient and good things will come and to my surprise they did. Now, instead of spending my days applying for jobs, I am keeping extremely busy… View Post

Making A Statement

Making a statement in the fashion world is a breeze, thanks to fun, colorful, and elaborate jewelry. And for me over the past month, my lovely boot cast treating my broken ankle can also cause heads to turn, but that’s a whole different story.  Back to the jewelry, I have been no stranger to the whole statement necklace trend and have always found myself finishing up a simple look by adding an ornate necklace.  But lately statement necklaces have not just been in the spotlight, but so has statement earrings.  The statement earring trend started in the winter, continued into… View Post

So Vintage

Cue the scene from Mean Girl.   Regina: Oh my God, I love your skirt!  Where did you get it? Lea Edwards: It was my mom’s in the ’80s. Regina: Vintage, so adorable. Lea Edwards: Thanks. Regina: [after girl walks away] That is the ugliest effing skirt I’ve ever seen. Even though mean girl Regina was mocking the character’s vintage style, currently vintage fashion is all the rage in the fashion world.  Slowly, I have been shopping more vintage styles and incorporating unique pieces into my looks.  What’s great about vintage clothing is the history behind each piece. Vintage clothing,… View Post

Weekend Roundup

For those of you who don’t know, LivForStyle actually started on YouTube.  Back in the day, my favorite videos to upload were my monthly favorite videos, where towards the end of the month I would recap a few products I was loving throughout that month.  Although, it is not the end of the month just yet, I decided to go back to my roots, and round up some of my favorite products and things that piqued my interest these past couple of weeks.  And still nursing a broken ankle, I have been spending a lot of time laying by the… View Post

Now Trending: Embroidery

While browsing through the photos featured in today’s style post, I can’t help but think what a refreshing change it is to see my right ankle in a pair of style booties, instead of the ugly gray medical boot that is acting as a cast for my broken ankle.  For those of who don’t follow me on any sort of social media (you’re missing out) I broke my ankle last week when I was vacationing in the Hamptons.  Of course, LivForStyle put style ahead of comfort and decided to wear a pair of high heels with her outfit one night… View Post

Forever Florals

If someone asked me to describe one trend that never seems to go out of style, works for any season, and looks fabulous on everyone that would totally have to be floral prints.  Imagine going into a store or browsing through your favorite online shop and not seeing some sort of variation of the floral print?  The fashion world would be kind of boring without it, am I right?  You can find a floral print that works best for you.  Whether that’s the typical colorful print, more of a tropical floral pattern, black and white flowers, the list goes on.… View Post
