Hey guys, I hope you’re all having a cheery week thus far! I’ve been so busy trying to organize everything for the weekend (I know, it’s only Monday) but there are so many things planned that I had to get an early start. Early bird gets the worm, right?
Anyhow, I recently got these super comfortable silk joggers and I basically want to live in them all day. Which is exactly what I did…last Thursday! I also straightened my hair (and immediately curled it that night), but it was fun living the straight haired life for several hours.
I paired these silk joggers with a loose top and some jewelry I designed in Turkey (they will be available for purchase on Private Cartel soon, eeeek!!!). There is something exciting about creating something unique and being able to share it with the world. It truly is an amazing feeling!!
Also, some quick updates! Be sure to follow me on Instagram @LeFashnMonster for a fun giveaway this week! Annnnndddd…I’ve shot some more YouTube videos so be sure to check it out and subscribe!
Black and camel are two of my favorite color combinations, duh. I’m pretty sure at this point you guys know that, buttttt…ta-da! Here’s another outfit with that combination. I’m seriously crazy over this super cool black and camel jacket. When I ordered it, I ordered a medium because I have long arms, however, the medium fit like a small. But…that didn’t stop me for wearing it! I love how fun this jacket is and I especially love the strap details on the arms. I got this on a random website (thanks Facebook ads) called rosewe.com (you can get it here). Nothing makes me a happier than a black and camel outfit. So simple.
When styling a color block jacket, it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit simple. Since the black and camel jacket is the staple, keeping the neutral color palette allows you get edgier with shoes and your jeans without being an eye-sore. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
This weekend has been crazy, it was my birthday and I got food poisoning…let’s hope the universe was telling me that after all that misery, this year is going to be epic! Well, it turns out it is because I present to you my first YouTube video! Ya’ll have e-mailed and commented on how I do my curls, so here’s the play-by-play with a little goofiness added into it!
Be sure to subscribe as I’ll be posting new videos regarding hair, beauty, and fashion! Please feel free to let me know what YOU guys want to see next!
Curling hair can be tricky and sometimes boring…so I hope this video helps make it easier and less boring!

P.S Keep in mind this is my first video, still working out the kinks
There is nothing more classic than a striped shirt and good pair of skinnies! This simple look is my go-to when I’m in a bind of what to wear and can’t put together an outfit as fast as I’d like. It’s comfortable and stylish, so it’s really a win-win. There are just some of those days where all black, or just solid items can feel so monotonous. A striped shirt is a great way to keep my favorite color palette of black and white while adding something different to it.
I paired my favorite skinnies with these amazing faux-suede booties from JustFab. There is nothing more comfortable than good denim and comfortable boots! What do you guys think? How would you wear a striped shirt?

As I mentioned before, I was able to shoot with the amazing Leyna of Yellow Heart Photography back in December, and I am super excited to share more images from the shoot. Since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I hope to get you inspired to feel love and fall in love with these images. Love doesn’t start on the outside, it starts on the inside. Look inside yourself and tell yourself FIVE things you love about…YOU! When you appreciate what you have within you, others can too.
The whole concept of this shoot was “Snow White”, but a modern version. Red with nature is such a beautiful pairing. Finding beauty in the simplest form is so important, and I hope this Valentine’s Day Inspiration actually inspires you!
I love a good dress as much as the next girl, however, I love little black dresses that have a unique twist to them. This “Casino Royale” dress from Private Cartel is my new fave! I love the skater skirt bottom and the gold and black lace detail on the top. It’s sexy and comfortable and it’s super fun to twirl in!
TGIF!!! Right? What a week it’s been. But, of course, I’m so grateful no matter what obstacles come my way. I hope you all are excited for the weekend!
One of my favorite staples in my wardrobe is denim. You can never have too much! I have been on the hunt looking for a light-washed distressed denim and stumbled upon these gorgeous and super comfortable ones from DSTLD (get these babies here). The best part…they were under $100! Distressed denim is a transitional denim, they work no matter what season you’re in and they add a fun little edge to a casual look.
I paired these ripped mid-rise cigarette cut jeans with a sheer blouse and a camel coat, and to top it off, I wore the “Le Fashion Monster” necklace from my online store Private Cartel (get it here). Distressed denim is my go-to as of late, I’ve learned to appreciate the fun distressed denim has to offer and sometime’s I want to feel like a “bad ass”.
