Pink Paisley Pants

Statement pants have been an obsession of mine probably since I bought my first pair of floral culottes from Zara around three years ago. A friend of mine was doing a closet clean out and I honestly could not understand why anyone would want to rid of these paisley kick-flare leg pants but I swiped them up in a heartbeat.

These funky pants can definitely be worn in a business setting with the paired blazer but, for keeping my style true to myself, I wanted to make them into a “professional going out piece.” I styled a super cropped top from Forever 21 revealing my waist and threw a white blazer over it to keep the look chic, and semi-appropriate.

I had a lot of fun shooting this look and want to wear it in real life once it’s not scorching hot in Kansas City. Great transition look from dinner to night on the town.

Simple Outfit with a Statement Jacket

I feel as if many of my outfits are quite simple but I love to also stand out. A statement jacket can bring just about any look from 0 to 100. I went from a tank and jeans outfit to a full on military inspired look, just by adding this jacket that I bought at Chopin in Italy around seven years ago. If you want to stand out, it is important to have some statement pieces or jackets incorporated into your outfits.

Thank you Jason Atherton for shooting these photos for me so last minute. We shot these in the mall and I love the people walking in the background. It makes these images so real and alive and shows that you don’t always need the most beautiful background to create good content.

#KCFW Cruise 2017 – Day 2 : ON BOARD

We left Miami and boarded our cruise ship this morning! This is my first cruise ever and I’m a bit nervous but mostly excited. We are aboard the Carnival Sensation Ship and it is huge with lots to do. Today we just hung out starting with a full team breakfast in Miami and dinner on the ship. No official business took place but tomorrow we will be shooting a lot at our next destination, Key West.
