We will be welcoming March tomorrow, and Spring in 21 days. I’m looking forward to putting away my winter wardrobe, and I’m already dreaming of pastels and bright colors.
Is Floral Print in for 2022?
Yes! Florals are usually a staple in many designer’s Spring / Summer collections, and will definitely be fashionable in SS22 as well. Florals are not only the feminine Spring classic, they are also key in providing an instant mood boost.
The WAYF blue floral printed mini-dress fits so well and looks amazing on. I recently shared it on Instagram and you can see that post here. I wore it twice in Miami – to lunch with girlfriends, and for a night out.

HOUNDSTOOTH: THE PATTERN YOU NEED THIS SEASON
Is Houndstooth in style?
Yes, houndstooth is still fashionable! I truly love wearing this black and white pattern year-round, but especially during the holidays. I bought this textured houndstooth jacket recently, and I think it looks amazing when paired with an all-black outfit. To create this look I styled the jacket with these faux leather pants that have been my go-to lately – they are comfy, stretchy, and fabulous. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve worn them!
The jacket has pronounced shoulders, front welt pockets with metallic buttons, and it closes in the front with a hook. In my opinion, it runs a bit small, so I sized up one size.
The best part about this houndstooth jacket is that you can get it for less than $100. The jacket is fully stocked, because it was just released, but I suspect that it will sell out fast. I plan to style it over a simple black midi dress, and over ivory trousers. You could totally create a business casual outfit with it too! What do you think of this look??

How to Dress Like a Girl Boss
To me, being a Girl Boss is about being self-assured, confident, ambitious and independent, it’s not necessarily about being a boss to others, I see it more about being the boss of your own life. And while there is no strict formula to dressing as a powerful woman, nothing says #GirlBoss like black leather.
My personal approach to the girl boss style is a mix of leather and lace. There’s something about mixing an edgy skirt with a feminine fabric that totally gets me into Girl Boss character. One of my suggestions is to invest in a faux-leather skirt that fits you like a glove – they are fashionable, trendy, and wearable. If you have no idea where to find one, start at Guess, I love how they fit! and their prices are great.
If you are a gal that prefers the more traditional look, here are three easy tips for styling outfits when you need to look professional:
(1) Choose staple items: these are those timeless classics that never go out of style. For the most part, your staples are going to be your solid colors. You really can’t go wrong when you buy clothing items in black, white, beige, navy, or grey. Keep in mind that prints come and go but those colors will match with almost anything. Every girl boss should own: a black pencil skirt, grey or black pleated pants, and white or black blouses (at a minimum).
(2) Accessories: To Add or Not to Add: these can either make or break an outfit like this, so choose wisely. I prefer clean looks so I stay away from accessories most of the time, except maybe earrings. When it comes to looking professional, less is always more.
(3) No need to be perfect, just be polished: this includes nice hair, a good skin care regimen, and a bit of make-up. A true girl boss knows how to take care of herself from top to bottom. Make it a point to dress well and look put-together at all times.
I believe in wearing what makes you feel like a boss! Always be authentic to who you are, so that you can look and feel comfortable everywhere you go. 😉 Have a wonderful weekend, lots of love!

WEEKLY TOP FINDS! | H&M Under $40!
Happy Tuesday! Here are this week’s Top Finds! A week ago I went to H&M to look for a specific top, and I ended up trying on so many summer outfit combinations, and purchasing a skirt & various different tops. So I decided to do this week’s Top Finds post from H&M. Most of the items have a ‘hippie chic’ flair to them – which is currently the style for the Spring & Summer seasons. Take a look at all these items – the best part is that they are comfortable, super cute, and affordable. For example: Item 4 is on sale for $6.99, Item 6 is on sale for $17.99, Item 9 is on sale for $12.99, and Item 11 is on sale for $17.99 (does not get better than this!). Check them out!
Hi ladies! There are trends. And then there are timeless styles. Such is the case with one of the most flattering pieces of clothing you will ever own, The Pencil Skirt. This is the one skirt style that is a staple for working / professional women. But you do not need to have a 9 to 5 office job to wear one, because pencil skirts look flattering at formal gatherings, and parties as well. Regardless of what you wear your pencil skirt with, you will end up with a polished, structured, and sophisticated look.
Pencil skirts look best when styled with a blouse, a blazer, a crop top, or a tight turtleneck (for a sexier look!). To wear at night, pair a fitted high-waisted pencil skirt with a crop top. For an effortlessly stylish look, pair a pencil skirt with a tucked-in cotton tee or a slouchy sweater. I personally love how empowering they are for women! And how convenient they are for work/meetings/evening affairs, I slip it on, pick one of my long-sleeved silk shirts and I’ve got a smart & professional look in less than 5 minutes… Add classic pumps or stilettos and you are done!
This timeless style will instantly enhance your curves, slim your waist, and make you look chic. If you want to look slimmer, a black pencil skirt is your best bet. If you prefer to add the illusion of curves, choose a skirt with bold patterns. To create the hourglass figure, just add a skinny dark-colored belt around your waist! It always comes down to choosing the option that works best for your own body type, and then rocking that pencil skirt! AH!… make sure that you can easily go up & down the stairs with it, as well as get out of a vehicle comfortably!
