Clean, crisp, inspirational – suddenly you have the urge to purge your wardrobe and reduce your collection to a few luxury fashion pieces hanging neatly in your dream-like wardrobe.

white, nude, grey – spring fashion in neutrals

It’s starting to feel like spring… and that means breaking out the lighter colors from your wardrobes (not that they’ve been tucked away). We all know white in winter is no longer a cliche, but something about that warm seasonal sun makes the bright shades in fashion all the more glorious. Here are a few spring style tips and fashion forecasting tidbits for staying on trend this season. What to place on high-rotation this spring? Distressed jeans are the number-one spring fashion comeback of the season. Don’t miss out! From worn-in wear to raw-edge fray – it’s time to bring back the 90’s grunge in a whole new way. The more raw, the better. Look for unexpected hems with loose strings, ragged ends and high-low trim. Too fast for your pace? Try a classic skinny with some heavy distressing at the knee. And while casual has been all the rage, don’t be afraid to dress up your spring and summer fashion. Pumps are also on a comeback, and if you don’t have the essentials covered be …

live luxe, live lavish

Anything worth doing, is worth doing well. And from my perspective, that includes every aspect of life. I’m not being boushy, nor do I prioritize fineness over life’s greatest treasures such as love, kindness and forgiveness. However – living to the fullest can be fun. And there’s nothing wrong with living a little luxe and lavish as long as you don’t loose sight of eternal treasures in the process. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | laceup skirt c/o:LAVISH ALICE | backless top c/o:LAVISH ALICE | perspex boots c/o:LAVISH ALICE | perspex cuffs c/o:REVOLT DESIGN | leather clutch c/o:REVOLT DESIGN | leather purse c/o:VONHOLZHAUSEN If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the ample opportunities that have come along with managing a travel, lifestyle and fashion blog – it’s to truly value purchases before you make them. Being completely candid, part of blogging is receiving countless items from partners and collaborators or brands hopeful of features. In the process, I have learned to not only select my partners carefully for my ideal style and the …

monochrome fashion tips

fashion tips for monochrome mavins

So you like monochrome fashion. Great, me too. I’d call it more of an obsession from personal experience. I think we can all relate to finding that new top, pant, boot, (you name it) – and think to ourselves, “it just looks better in black.” And there’s nothing wrong with that. Black, white, grey and other neutrals provide comfort and balance without the opulence or over excitement that colors may evoke. Understated is a culture as well as a fashion trend. And the good news is, it’ll probably never go out of style. It is a distinct advantage of monochrome fashion. The ease of pairing looks that always seem to match on the fly. The issue – becoming too boring or predictable. Walk into my closet, and you’ll quickly see why I’m often accused of “not breaking out of my color shell.” The solution: incorporate pieces that yes, may be elemental in color – but are rich in details and provide other areas of interest. The mentality: essential verses basic, simple but not the same. Think …

the golden years

The golden years are upon us, and not because of age, season, or any other reason – it’s here because we say it is. And as long as you believe that, those words will hold true. There is something beautiful to be grateful for in everyday if only you’re looking for it. And a positive attitude is 100% the pathway to get there. Though the balance of outlook can prove to be a challenge, and one I’ve far from mastered. Being positive without naivety, content without being complacent, careful without being anxious, being confident without airs. If you can find the sweet spot… teach me please? The black and white areas in life are easy, but the fine grey lines are an art to be mastered. A few goals for the year to keep things in perspective. What IS black and white on the other hand… this #ootd (well black, white and gold that is). Wearing slides for the first time of the season, and I must say – it feels fabulous. Literally. My feet love you Clarks, and …
