Is anyone becoming somewhat bored or tired of my nudes? I think i might have bad news if that's the case! I just cant seem to be able to get rid of my obsession for nude/pastel colors. I mean, can you blame me? this color is super delicate and goes great with just about anything.
Some people might actually dislike the way this particular shade looks on me because of the way that I kind of "blend" with it, but it will be a while before i decide to let go of this awesome tone.
There are indeed various ways that you can take advantage of this trend when looking to incorporate these colors into your outfit: (Nude, Taupe, Grey) You don't necessarily have to dress in all monochromatic tones, I just like to do it because for me dressing in all one hue is extremely simple and looks super chic.
There is absolutely no problem with doing a mix and match, whether it be the accessories, shoes or even the coat to kind of give it that over the top look.

Long gone are the years when we were told not to wear white after Labor Day! And lets face it chicas, how many of us were dying to do it but were insanely terrified of being judge? Well, guess what? I'm here to tell you that it is indeed OK to wear white all year long yes you read that right, let's just call it winter white with a nice pop of color.
When wearing a monochromatic outfit (all white) any hue, such as yellow, red or blue will really "liven up" your look. However, if the palette of your outfit is a mix of neutrals, adding a bright color will pair easily. So the choice is yours!
Incorporating a subtle pop of color to your "all white" outfit can definitely transform your look. White clothing provides the perfect background for a striking piece of jewelry, nail polish, lipstick or any accessory that you want to add that'll create that impact. Chicas, please don't be afraid to play around with colors and lets forget about that old myth and start wearing that sexy white dress or pants that has been sitting in your closet waiting to be worn. A pop of color does not have to be limited to any particular piece of clothing or accessory, you can choose anything from the shoes to the coat or even the handbag. Just try not to over accessorize. Remember, you want to achieve a nice and clean white look.
It may be somewhat of a struggle for many to even consider the possibility of wearing white during the winter months, and many might even think that white will make them look more on the thicker side. Well chicas, there is absolutely nothing a pair of spanx cant solve! trust me, it'll work wonders.
One last tip to always keep in mind when wearing all white and adding a pop of color is to never add more than one bright color, this will cause the outfit to look overloaded and we certainly don't want that. You can opt to add a coat as your pop of color, This Zara double breasted coat is not only trendy but will keep you super warm. It's perfectly fine to wear printed shoes like these gorgeous snake printed pumps from flyjane. Don't forget to always stay warm in style of course, a nice cozy sweater and scarf will definitely do the trick! both from ASOS.
The easiest and of course coziest way to achieve a chic winter look is indeed an eye catching coat with your favorite accessories: the perfect scarf, bag and boots. Always keep in mind that sometimes less is more! Same applies when layering your favorite pieces to create that chic look. If you’re thinking demure and elegant yet totally versatile, there is absolutely nothing a pair of pants and top with an eye catching statement coat wouldn't be able to achieve.
Your options when looking for the right outfit on these chilly days are endless. Think fun, creative while staying warm and comfortable. This look is not only super cute and totally trendy, but it’s the best way to go from a day out shopping to a dinner date in no time.
So there you have it chicas, no more excuses to not look stunningly hot during the cold and snowy days coming ahead!!
Another chic way to stay in style this season besides adding the key pieces to your outfit, will indeed be the shoes! yes I understand that winter usually calls for over the knee and tall boots, but you can definitely bring out your fave pumps and rock em'
If you're obsessed with sunglasses and clutches like i am, then here is your chance to bring it all out and incorporate these cool necessary pieces to your already fabulous look!
Last but not least, the one piece that will complete your look, like stated previously will be the coat, you do not have to limit yourself to only wearing solid and dark colors, you can definitely opt for colors and prints. This draped coat from ZARA Similar:Here will have you turning heads, paired with these Steve Madden nude pumps,Similar:Here Asos scarf and This (Similar) Alia oversized envelope clutch.

It's nearly insane to think that the holidays are literally here. I know how difficult it can get for many of us trying to balance so many things at once and it can become a burden financially. To try and avoid that I would suggest using pieces that you already have in your closets and just mix and match, you'd be surprised at how much money you can end up saving.
I decided to help you ladies out with a few tips and tricks on how to look great while on a budget. Also, I will create a few holiday looks that are easy, cheap and chic! All will be featured on Chicafresh.com if you have not already done so, make sure to check out all the fashion tips and trends that I have written on their site!very girly, cool & fun
recently, I have been playing around with different patterns and prints, just because i think it's pretty cool and I like it. Well, it's really because i get easily bored with just one style and like to spice it up a bit ;). Like I have always said, don't be afraid to step out the box and experiment with different styles, you might just end up loving it.

Throughout the years my taste in clothing has drastically changed, and so has my color palette selection when choosing what to wear. Few years back walking into my closet was a huge contrast of black & white and a few pieces that were just randomly lingering around that just happened to have some color! Now I'm a bit more open minded when it comes to incorporating colors. One color that I've been obsessing over for quite some time now has been burgundy, I feel that it's such a powerful and deep color.
As I've mentioned in previous posts, we have to be a little more open minded when it comes to choosing prints and patterns, as you can see here I decided to go a little bold and mix plaid with leopard print! the thought of it might seem a bit wild, but the outcome is pretty cool and fun. Don't be afraid to add life to your outfits, the worse that can happen is that you're remembered for being that one girl that no one is ever able to forget because of her different sense in style.
Adding a few accessories, whether it be a clutch, necklace or glasses is always a great idea. Remember to always have fun with what you're wearing, it's not only meant to make you look good, but it's also meant to make you feel great.

This was indeed one of the most inspirational events i've attended so far. It was a 2 day event packed with inspiring speakers, panels, networking, meet and greet with cosmo editors, it was just amazing to say the least.
I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know a little more in depth about the editor in chief of U.S Cosmopolitan Joanna Coles. Got to meet and hear so many inspirational stories from amazing woman and man like: Kelly Osbourne, Windsor Hanger, Jillian Michaels, Aliza Licht, Chrissy Teigen, Sophia Amoruso, Jason Silva, Gabrielle Union, Matthew Hussey, Dr Meg Jay, Dr Jennifer Ashton, Alexa VonTobel, Jordan Carlos, Adam Rosante, Alicia Qaurles, Megyn Kelly And so many more.
There was one speaker in Particular that completely changed my whole view on my future plans and goals. Despite all the struggles and negative feedbacks from everyone Sarah Blakely the creator of Spanx decided to take all that negativity and turn it into something good. In 2000, Sarah Blakeley started Spanx with a dream and $5,000. She invented footless body -shaping pantyhose and launched a brand that has been revolutionizing the industry from more than a decade. Sarah has taken spanx from a spunky starup to a global powerhouse creating a celebrity favorite and must-have for fans everywhere.
I can sit here for hours and write pages long on why Sarah blakely inspired me, but that'll take too long and you guys will get bored. I'll just end by saying to always follow your dreams! i know it may sound cliché or super wack but i cant stress enough how aggressive you have to be to reach your future goals. for me Personally it hasn't been an easy road (not that i ever expected it to be so). After moving to another state at the age of 17 with no family or friends to rely on, my only objective was to survive and make it through that stage in my life! which i did. Now that i have found myself and discovered what it is that i really want in life, there is no stoping me now.

Happy monday all :) WoW this past weekend was insanely awesome, not only did I meet the most inspiring woman ever, but i learned so much that i decided to create a post and share it with you guys! but that'll be in my next post.
As you guys may have already noticed, my coat obsession doesn't seem to have an end. Not only do I love the wide variety of styles and prints, but i also love how conveniently simple it can transform a simple outfit to a totally chic and effortless look.
This was a casual look worn to spend a day out running a few errands. I did not however, spend all day with louboutins just in case you guys were wondering. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week.

Hi All, how's everyones week so far? I've been all over the place, but that's nothing new.
todays post is about the infamous shirt dress, for me its the perfect excuse to wear my boyfriends shirts and just pretend like its a dress :0) no worries though, i've attached a few sites where you can actually purchase a real woman's shirt dress.
These shirt dresses as you can see can be somewhat on the shorter side, for many exposing a bit more than desired. Thanks to my petite frame and height i dont really worry about that. If you feel that this particular style is too short you can definitely add a pair of leggings, jeans or even a skirt.
I opted to wear my shirt dress with a crop sweater top just to give it that extra chic look. You can either add a sweater or a blazer. As always, accessories are totally optional, just don't overload the look.
