springjacketlookbookadornedAlthough Spring is still some weeks away, I think it’s safe to say that we east coasters can start bringing out our lighter jackets. But, with this unpredictable weather, I won’t say to store your furs and puffy coats away just yet!

But yes…your spring jackets can still come out to play!

As I write this post, it’s a cloudless, piercing blue skies kind of day and the sun is straight beaming. I honestly had to shield my eyes as I walked to Starbucks earlier. I shed off my winter coat and thick scarf and walked out in my sweater – and let me just say, that alone felt liberating and made me look forward to the pending season.

With that being said, I teamed up with SHOPBOP to present you all with some sassy spring jacket inspo.

  1. This soft nude jacket drew me at first sight. Not only do I love the color, I love all of the fringe detail and the fact that the material is suede! This jacket can easily transition from your fall wear to spring.
  2. If you know me, you’d easily tell that this jacket is my absolute favorite! I feel every woman should have a staple coat in her closet and this is a great example of one. It has print, color and shine. I’d wear this kind of jacket with a very basic top and bottom, as the model is wearing. Neutrality is best when wearing a piece that’s over the top. You dress around that staple!
  3. Everyone needs a leather jacket, right? This take was especially attractive to me because of stud accents and pretty, pastel blue color. Pastel = major spring yes!

Valentine’s Day Looks | With Shopbop

adornedinarmorshopbopvalentineLess than a month away until Valentine’s Day, ladies! Didn’t we just like…start the year?

Yeah, I know. But of course, I’m here again to share some of my favorite Shopbop’s looks that serve as major inspo. I’m a sucker for this commercialized holiday and I couldn’t stop if I tried. I love love! And I can totally see myself wearing any of these outfits and adding my personal touch through accessorizing and all that pizzaz.

So let’s talk V-Day.

  1. I am in LOVE (get it?) with the color of this dress. It’s construction isn’t the typical and I like how it takes it from basic to …not so basic lol.  Perfect for a girl’s night or date night with your special somebody.
  2. You know I’m all about the jumpsuit all day, any day. This one is so polished and I can totally see it on the business woman or the sophisticated #girlboss who’s taking herself out! Because…why not?
  3. Floral and feminine: basically the ingredients to the typical Valentine’s Day look. The pop of black serves as an unexpectant contrast, making the gown appear as if it’s art! Seriously, doesn’t it look like a painting?

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!

I can’t believe the holidays are already upon us! It’s my favorite time of year. First, stuffing our faces and reflecting on what you’re grateful for, then celebrating the gift of Christ!  Oh, and if you call Black Friday a holiday, I guess you can squeeze that in there, too.

I collaborated with SHOPBOP to share with you my favorite holiday looks! Of course when you think of the holidays, the two primary colors you go for are red and green. I chose to go with 3 green dresses that you can get inspo from to wear to your holiday dinner, banquets and/or parties!

The first dress is one of my favorites. These kind of dresses look the best on petite women so if you’re short, this one’s for you! It compliments your chest, slims your waist and gives you hips!

The second dress is more elegant. It’s perfect for Christmas service at church. I love it’s straight line – this type of dress elongates your body!

Ahhhh this third dress is absolutely gorgeous. Extravagant, yes. But super necessary for the holidays. It’s perfect for a gala, banquet or any formal event. I love the constructed shape; it gives the illusion of origami. What do you think?

For more holiday dresses, search no further! Shopbop’s got ya.





My birthday is coming!

This Saturday, the 24th to be exact. I don’t shop much, but on the rare occasion that I do, it’s for my birthday.

I’m turning 21 this year and the most expecting way to celebrate is a night out in NYC, especially because it’s so close to me. However, I’m all New York’d out. Yeah, I’m shocked, too.

So I’ll be celebrating my night in Philadelphia at a soulful lounge with good eats and great friends. During the day, I’ll be attending a “Girlfriend’s Day” event at a church I attend while here at school.

I typically embrace colors and prints but this year I’m doing it quite simple. I’ll be wearing black. (You’ll see the dress later.) I partnered up with SHOPBOP to show you guys some of my favorite styles of little black dresses.

  1. Perfect for a special night. Not too fancy but not at all chill. Still, very very classy.  That neckline tops it all. This dress is for the woman who likes to do it up but still come off…subtle.
  2. Here’s a classic little dress you can wear simple with a statement necklace or blazer. Effortless.
  3. I had to include this dress! I love the suede material and of course, the fringe. I mean, look at all that layering! The movement is also gorgeous. This dress is ideal for a chill or adventurous night out.

For more LBD looks, shop here and paint the night…black!



Happy fall, guys!

How have you been holding up?

I’ve been freezing back here in New Jersey – the temperatures dropped so quickly! I’ve been wearing my summer items because I left all my fall/winter things home. This past weekend, I had to go back to pack them up and bring them to campus. Can you say “clutch?”

As I suffered (joking), I browsed SHOPBOP for the perfect transitional item: the jacket! I found so many but ultimately decided that these three are my ultimate favorites.

  1. I’ve always wanted a cape jacket. You don’t even have to dress up in this piece; it’s a statement in itself. I love the sleek finish and this jacket is just so me! PS: My birthday is coming up (hint hint).
  2. Fur! The pattern is aesthetically appealing and the colors are very fall. I always have burgundy pieces in my closet and this one could happily take up my space.
  3. I’ve always gone for boxy items. This particular collarless jacket caught my eye because of the bold outline. The white lapel provides a stark contrast and you all know I love boldness! Another plus are the huge pockets!

What’s your favorite transitioning piece, guys? For more fall jackets and inspo, check here!
