i bet you look good on the dancefloor

Happy Monday!

The past month has been extra hectic, and I sincerely apologize for the constant lack of posting as of late. I’m trying to juggle my career and blogging simultaneously but sometimes it’s get really challenging after long work weeks to take pictures and get dressed up. Also, when I do, it’s usually too late to take a picture or I just completely forget.  I do post almost daily to Instagram (@LeFashnMonster) so be sure to check that out when you can.

Anyhow, I do hope you all have been having a lovely start to the summer. I’m slowly getting ready for my trip Istanbul, Turkey in early August!

Today’s post was all about having fun. I was actually inspired my side swept full bangs today so decided to play off them. I know it’s a little menswear retro, but sometimes it’s fun to really just dress up.

Orange is the new black

Okay, it’s not really the new black, but the T.V is show premiering it’s new season this week…and for that, I’m happy! I know it’s been awhile, but it’s been one roller coaster of a month. As much as I love fashion and blogging, the mental health field is where my career and future lies. I have working toward building my name in the mental health community and working through getting my intern number and bulking up on clients to get my 3,000 hours done so I can open my practice within the next two years.

Anyhow, I’ll be posting more often though. I do miss the excitement of dressing up and not wearing suits all day!

Happy Monday ya’ll!

I’ve been on the hunt for unique and comfortable leggings that don’t break the bank and that don’t “look” like leggings. Thankfully my search is over and I am excited to share with you this brand that will give you legging heaven! Evleo is a brand that is fast-growing and one of my personal favorites. Their leggings are so chic and comfortable and reasonably priced. Definitely check them out, you’ll thank me later.

My personal favorite are these white snakeskin beauties! You’ll see a lot of posts with them, I don’t think I can take them off!

P.S I’ve teamed up with Evleo to giveaway 2 tickets to Coachella (Weekend 2). Wednesday’s post will have the contest details! So exciting!

olive oil

I’m not usually one to wear too much color, so going all in on one color was a risk for me! I will admit that I absolutely love this color and this style. Two piece looks I love to wear but sometimes finding pieces that just work well is hard, luckily this set from AMI CLUBWEAR came together and fit like a glove!

Sport Mode

I know that sweats aren’t necessarily meant to be worn outside, let alone with heels, but today I broke the rules. I won’t lie, I felt pretty liberated as this style is so out of my comfort zone. I was lucky enough to snag these amazing heels from Shoedazzle which shockingly worked perfectly with this look.

Seventies Rock

Today’s outfit was inspired by the seventies with a little rock n’ roll. I love to mix up bohemian prints with leather and edgy details which is why the booties I’m wearing worked perfectly for this look. I’ve never really found a pair of black booties that I had to have, but these Shoedazzle ones just shouted at me. This blazer’s print truly inspires me so much, it has a nice bohemian feel but also a unique ethnic feel which is why I love it so much.

Modern Vintage

I tried something a little different today: palazzo pants. Normally I always feel like a clown when I wear them, but something about the print of these intrigued me. I figured, why not. I paired the pants with a turtleneck crop top because I feel it added a little bit of a vintage feel.

Caliente

Summer is almost over so I’ve found myself leaning toward fall fabrics, like leather. This leather skirt has been in my closet waiting for me to wear it again. The only reason I don’t wear it too often is because the boyfriend hates it. I’m so in love with the crop top/pencil skirt trend, I just had to do it for today’s post!

Playing the Field

A quick outfit post today! Today was all about experimenting with textures and patterns. The quilted leather shorts, the cotton crop top and the bold white/black blazer

The Little Ivory Dress

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect LWD (Little White Dress) but I’m completely in love with ivory. Until I can lay out and get some color too, Ivory gives my complexion a little color, so I’m not too sad I haven’t come across my LWD yet. I love the simplicity of the tunic and it’s one of the most comfortable items I own. It’s light and easy and can be worn with a basic ballet flat, or a fun lace up bootie like the one’s in today’s post.

Oh, and want to hear something amazing? I’M DONE WITH SCHOOL TODAY! Well…I have to go kick my psychopharmacology final at 3 pm first, but then…a whole month off- from school. I started work this month at the counseling center and I’m looking forward to finishing my training and seeing some clients. Once I start, the mini dresses and crop tops might be scarce on the blog! But don’t you worry, I’ll still add some edge to my more polished looks. In the meantime, I’m going to post as much as I can.
