After a tiring, but fun, weekend with friends, I was just in the mood to be cozy. In my opinion, nothing is more comfortable than sweatshirts, boyfriend jeans, and fur, so I decided to wear it all, with comfortable heels of course. Fashion has been shifting into a more relaxed vibe which makes it fun to dress up more casual, everyday pieces like a college or sports team sweatshirt mixed with glam pieces such as faux fur or heels. It keeps things interesting and comfortable for a really chill, but fun, daytime look. Fall RTW (ready-to-wear) shows began this month. The first fashion week was in NYC, then London, Milan, and now Paris. For a fashion nerd like me, it is so inspiring and exciting to watch all the shows! Anyway, my tip to you as spring nears is do not be afraid to stock up on pastels. I know, pastels for spring… groundbreaking. However, a lot of designers showed a lighter palette for fall, especially in shades of pink and purple. As long as you buy classic pieces such as blazers, tailored pants, skirts and dresses that come in great, clean cuts and a lasting fabric it will be easy to be on trend during spring and throughout fall without breaking the bank for both seasons!

bisous, Mack.

This post was supposed to be all about The Ohio State Buckeyes winning the Orange Bowl on Friday, hence the “yay we won” pose at the end, but now it will be focused strictly on fashion. As if I really knew what I was going to say if they did win! Anyway, for my outfits recently I can’t help but say they are inspired by Beyoncé. Cheesy I know, but if you listen to her album and watch the videos that accompany it you might understand. All of them are insanely sexy, cool and unapologetic of who she is. I tried to bring that casual, sexy and cool feeling to my outfit. The cropped trend is holding strong in 2014, so I paired my cropped sweater with a pencil skirt, which can be dressed up, but I wanted to keep it really casual. To maintain that chill vibe, I tied a plaid shirt around my waist, added a baseball cap and my favorite booties. The plaid shirt is from The Kooples, a French brand, it is on every corner in Paris, similar to our Starbucks, but for us here in the U.S it is worth checking out. This outfit is great for a cool Sunday brunch, to host a game night or to meet friends at a sports bar. When in doubt, just pretend you’re Beyoncé, life is more fun that way!

bisous, Mack.
