sass of style

For the bold and expressive girl.

I am obsessed with this look. This jacket is my favorite piece I own right now. It is a head-turner and makes any simple outfit look fantastic. I like that this plaid has a hint of brown in it. It is almost the grey-plaid trend but a little different.

The black turtleneck is another piece that I’ve been drooling over. I want so many turtlenecks this season. It might also have to do with the recent video by Racked about dressing like a rom-com divorcee for a week. Loved the looks inspired by the divorcees in this video. It has put turtlenecks on my it-list.

The pajama trend has been in for over a year now, so when Adore Me reached out I was so excited to receive some loungewear. The safest way to style this look is with a casual pair of jeans. I tucked the front part of it in to give it a more polished look.

This pajama top from Adore Me is so soft and fits like a gem. It’s great to wear such a comfortable and trendy top out and about.

Thanksgiving is here and there are two things on my mind besides what pants will give me the most room to stuff myself: What I will be wearing and what I will be drinking.

Holidays are for the statement blouses and I am obsessed with this black wrap top. It has a sweetheart neckline sewn into the top to create an ultra flattering look. I added a dark red lip to get in the holiday spirit and it took my dark look to something more festive.

Now we all know that I love a good cocktail and vodka just so happens to be my drink of choice. For this holiday season I wanted to make a cider-based drink. I added a shot and a half of Purity Vodka. This vodka is so crisp and the look of it is so sophisticated. I added a cinnamon stick and covered the rim with brown sugar. A sweet holiday drink made with Purity Vodka. 👌🏻  Happy holidays everyone and have a great Thanksgiving with this recipe!

COCKTAIL BREAKDOWN: 1.5 shots of Purity Vodka

1 cup cider

1 cup brown sugar for the rim, sprinkled a pinch in the drink too 😉

( Trick: Wet the rim of the empty glass, lay the brown sugar on a plate, twist the damp martini glass in the brown sugar and then pour your drink in the glass)

2 cinnamon sticks

(Trick: I stuck one inside the other so the stick would jut out)

SHOP MY LOOK: Metisu Wrap Top / Asos Crop Jean / Asos Booties / Bite Lip  Side Note: I am obsessed with black booties and I bought two more pairs on Nasty Gal, everything is 50% off!  I got a pair of boots for $15! Seriously you should check out.

Hey guys! A short and sweet post for you this week. I put a little twist on my regular look. I went with a printed tie jacket to spice up my favorite high neck top. I then added a bit of contrast with this perfect yellow bag. I love this yellow tone with its 70’s look and the polka dots with the retro vibes. I definitely think the two pieces are complimenting each other well. Shop the pieces below!

Making Your Workwear Trendy

November 9, 2017


It’s tough making your workwear trendy, but still office appropriate. First off, my office has a very casual dress code. If you are at an office where dress pants, dresses and skirts are only allowed, I’m sorry. I am a big fan of denim and usually live in jeans at my office.

This look can give you a trendy-appropriate way to dress for work for those of you who have a stuffy dress code. I scored this awesome plaid skirt on sale at Zara last winter. I am loving that plaid is the hottest trend this fall and I can work this piece into my wardrobe well.

I added my new Diane von Furstenburg top which I got from Saks Off Fifth. I’ve always loved a front tie on a blouse. Cropped tops and high waist lines help me split up my long torso.

I slipped on my white slides from Target and my Topshop handbag and was ready for work.

Hope you guys liked this workwear look. Would love to hear your feedback in the comments.

I have been working with this brand for over a year now. Without fail every time I wear one of their pieces it marks the day I get the most compliments that month. There are just such unique and high quality pieces that are on Metisu.com.

My latest picks were some of my best yet. This grey jacket is perfect for fall! It is not to heavy not too light and it looks fabulous on. It goes with just about anything and I love that it allows me to wear this long-line vest underneath it too. It can always be awkward when a vest like this is hanging lower than your jacket.

This long-line vest is so cool. It is very structured, but unique because of it’s lace up sides. This piece can take any rather ordinary look and make it fabulous. I layered this boat-neck sweater with an exaggerated sleeve underneath and I got perfection.

I am obsessed with this dress. Yes, I said dress. This sweater and metallic pleated skirt combo comes in one piece! This gorgeous dress is only $39  and I’m in love. I styled it with a metallic slender waist belt and my favorite pair of edgy boots. I then added my new earth-toned Fossil bag to throw a little more contrast into the look. This dress is so perfect for fall, it is something that you throw on and be chic in. Easy as that.

The winter months are nearing and you’re in need of a new look. In winter you basically live in your jacket, so you better pick a great one.

My latest winter jacket was on sale at Shop Tobi. I’m loving it and am excited for it to actually be cold out for winter use. The jacket comes in black and pink and is on sale for about $50!  I paired it with this gorgeous rose sweater dress. It is so cute and perfect when you just need to throw something on. I added these amazing satin boots and ended up looking a little like a Barbie with a killer jacket. Happy Shopping!

Sweater Weather. It’s not quite here yet, but I’m ready for it. Large and lumpy sweaters are a fan favorite when it comes to the colder months. I personally wanted to shake it up a bit with this uniquely cut sweater.

It is a halter sweater with an open back. This makes you look cute and cozy all at the same time. I paired the sweater with some flare pants and arrived at this twist to a classic fall look.

Today is the first day of fall and I wanted to give you all some autumn vibes. I am as basic as they come, when it comes to fall. The second I saw that Starbucks advertising, I was grabbing my PSL with no shame. Those things are good and it marks the beginning of New York’s best weather in my opinion.

For my super fall look, I wore this white high neck top. I am really wanting all the turtlenecks this season. This one is great because of the bell sleeve. It makes it extra chic in my opinion. I paired it with this super fall wrap skirt. I love this skirt and the color especially, as you know I’ve been super into orange lately and this fits right in with my new love affair. I then added my white pointed flats and my grey fringe bag. Vóila my first Fall 2017 look.
