Sporty Spice

The  bookmark of the moment in fashion is to  adopt the "athleisure" style. If your next question is what is "athleisure" then you may find yourself out of the proverbial loop, in the fashion arena (all pun intended). Athleisure, is a new term coining the trend of incorporating or using sports and athletic wear into your everyday style. With a minimalist casual approach designers such as Alexander Wang, Givenchy, and Chanel have headlined their more recent collections with this theme. These designers are among many, who are making innovative and bold choices, that have not only influenced street style but brought change to they way we think about our clothing, normally reserved for the gym and sporting events. Being a champion of comfort and style myself, I for one am happy, to already be on this bandwagon and hope that this is one trend, that is here to stay.

Bargain Chic

As a style blogger you must be a supporter of thrifty spending. It's a priority to be a step ahead of the rest regarding trends so you find yourself constantly shopping and acquiring new things.  Often times when we shop, we make the mistake of assuming that because something cost less, it looks and is in fact cheap. Nothing can be farther from the truth. In fact retailers like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, H&M, and Zara have shown us the way, to mimic the designer duds, that are simply out of reach do to their hefty price tag.  My look of the day, is actual proof that style makes all the difference, not cost. I'm wearing a sweater from Charlotte Russe $20, pants from TJ maxx $17, shoes from Burlington Coat Factory $20 and a top from JCP $13 for a whooping $70, I have a head to toe look, that is definitely what I call, blog worthy!

Not too shabby but always chic

 How often do you go thrifting or do you thrift at all? The answer for me depends on the season and whether I'm in the mood for sifting through racks of clothing. I prefer to go thrifitng during the fall and winter season. The opportunities for finding cute knitwear like my shabby chic sweater below are greater, during those times, than in the summer. Also people tend to take better care of their winter clothing than the summer, for some reason and the quality as a result is better. There are some great places to thrift in the DMV area, some of my faves include Value Village on University BLVD, in MD, Village Thrift on Annapolis RD. and the Goodwill store on South Dakota Ave,. in DC. If you have a special thrift store, where you like to frequent in the area or online, comment below!
