Fall Fashion

As much as I hate to see summer end, I am kind of excited to start transitioning my wardrobe into early fall, which, in my opinion, is the best fashion season. Restocking my wardrobe for fall is so easy thanks to my favorite Lulu's. I found tons of affordable items that I adore, including these high waisted elegant shorts in beautiful grey shade and the beautiful open back top to go with the shorts. Happy Shopping!

Denim Truth & Dare

This post is sponsored by Target
Whatever the season, the year or age, denim is always on trend. The beauty of denim is that no matter your shape, size and body type, you can still have at least one flattering denim piece. 
This month I have been challenged by Target to share my denim truth with my favorite denim style and play with my denim dare by trying a denim style that's totally different from what I usually wear. Instead of playing with denim styles (skinny, flare, boyfriend), I decided to play with different washes. For my denim truth, I wore low-rise skinny jeans in medium wash - my usual go-to. Skinny jeans are always flattering and the wash is great for styling the look up or down. In my case, I styled it up with a pair of high heel sandals and a skinny top. As for my dare, I decided to experiment with washes and got skinny leggings in indigo acid wash. They look so cool and so retro, that it inspired me to go for a grunge look with a cool "Rolling Stones" tee, leather booties and a fedora hat. Daring my denim look made me feel creative and confident, I think I might have discovered a new style ;) And how would YOU dare your denim style? By the way, Target has a great denim promotion going on right now: shipping and returns are FREE. So go ahead, dare yourselves ;)

Comfy and Confident

I partnered up with U by Kotex to talk about being comfy. As a woman, there are so many things that can make us feel uncomfortable: smudged make up, bad hair days, poor clothing choice and of course... "those" days. Those days when we don't feel like doing anything at all and want to stay at home and be taken care of. With U by Kotex products you can get comfortable and confident every single day of the month. Personally I am a huge fan of everyday liners. They always keep me fresh and comfortable, and it's an essential element to any woman's life. U by Kotex Lightdays liners are great for everyday use, since they are breathable, soft, silky and they comfortable flex with the body. If you'd like to get free U by Kotex samples, you can redeem them on

Patriotic Vibes

In our world of globalized fashion, it's hard to stand out. You can buy a t-shirt during your random travel to Prague and come back to California and see the exact same t-shirt on your neighbor. I am not saying that it's bad, I myself am a huge consumer of mass fashion, but every once in a while I'd like to wear something a little more special. Thanks to Zazzle, I can customize my basic clothing items and choose from what seems to be unlimited options if I am out of ideas. Since I a new US citizen as of recently, I was feeling patriotic about my new country and especially the state I live in and I chose the corresponding tank and a tote from Zazzle. But even those basic items can be styled up for a casual glam look.
