Spring Leather Shorts

Spring and All its flowers now joyously break their vow of silence. It is time for celebration, not for lying low; you too- weed out those roots of sadness from your heart. – Hafiz

Happy 2nd day of Spring and happy Norouz to all my Persian readers. The sun sure is out in full force this spring and summer! I wanted to show you one of my go-to looks before it gets too warm to wear black. Continue Reading…

Knit Crop Top| No Winter Last Forever

February 28, 2017

Perfect Knit Crop Top

There is nothing as quite satisfying as finding the perfect seasonal transitional piece and this knit crop top from For Love and Lemons is just that. The fit is amazing and the fabric isn’t too heavy or too light; making it a great choice for the less cool last days of winter and the beginning of spring.
I have a special love for good quality cable knit sweater tops. I was immediately attracted to this top when I first saw it online. It is best to pair this type of knit crop top with something a little more minimal, so it’s not overshadowed. What’s great about this sweater is that it’s suitable for an evening of lounging or a day out and about.

I personally have worn it to a family friend dinner and paired it with high –waist black trousers and a pair of pumps to dress it up. I wore the top with my high-waist green pants (from this post) and a pair of burgundy ankle boots to a Sunday brunch when we were in Denver. It somehow has the perfect combination of ease and luxury- the epitome of laid-back chic.

Since the weather has been great in Houston, I paired my top with a faux leather pencil skirt. I think most people don’t like to show off their washed out/ pale legs when they wear skirts and I have to say I’m one of them. To solve this problem, fishnet tights are always there to rescue me. They also make your legs look slimmer and toned.

As far as accessories go, I stayed very minimal since the knit crop top is the statement piece of this look. The vintage Chanel brooch was a perfect choice to complement the top. To wfinish up the look, I wore my favorite velvet ankle boots and went with my cool and edgy silver clutch.

Classic Orange Coat | Outfit Of The Day

December 9, 2016

It’s so exciting that coat season is finally here because sometimes you can be lazy for your outfit but be effortless chic at the same time with a classic coat. Although Houston has been pretty chilly these few days, this look is actually from my San Francisco trip I went on a couple of weeks ago. I was excited that it was chilly enough for me to wear my coat out there while Houston was 88 degrees. Continue Reading…

How To Wear Your Summer Culottes This Fall

November 8, 2016
I have to confess these hot days in Houston are just not my cup of tea.  You have no idea how much I was looking forward to this fall for not shaving my legs! Oh, common we all know sometimes you forget to shave them too! I’m one of those people who would rather be a slick steal than anything else. Plus I hate when you feel like your legs are the “medium- duty”, the yellow and green, dish scrub sponge ready to scrub the bottom of the pan. Well, I know pants can get hot especially the skinny ones, so I found a solution for it. I mostly wear the loosey-goosey ones this time of the year. Continue Reading…

Outfit Diary | Fall in Houston

November 2, 2016

One of the positive aspects of living in Houston is being able to ditch coats and show a little skin till mid-winterish. As the weather continues to ” Cool Off”, the high 70s at night lol, jackets/blazers are becoming a firm statement piece in the layering game. I personally love the oversized blazer. It is the complete transition piece for fall and fun to layer with other garments. Whether we drape it on our shoulders or carry it on a warmer fall day, the blazer gives off the effortless edgy dynamic that makes it so much fun to wear.

For this look, I chose to stick with a light color blazer, ivory, since it doesn’t absorb heat as much as darker color ones do. A great statement blazer can boost even the simplest of outfits. I love how I’m able to wear it with a variety of outfits. As you guys know, versatility is key and with the oversized blazer as the statement piece, simplicity with other pieces is an importance.

I couldn’t imagine anything simpler than a pair of Stirrup pants/leggings to pair with the blazer. As we all know Stirrups have come back to our closets and they are making their fashion world return. I went with dark colors for the rest of the outfit since the blazer was pretty light and I didn’t like my outfit to look summery/springy. I usually prefer wearing crop tops with high-waist pants, so I thought nothing would beat a basic black crop top for this look. As far as the accessories go, I stayed very minimal and just wore my favorite handmade turquoise choker that I hunted down from a vintage shop. I wrapped up the look with a simple black handbag and a pair of burgundy shoes. I also love pairing this outfit with loafers and loafer slides.

I hope you like this sort of fall look and take some inspiration when it comes to creating your new fall wardrobe essentials! What does Fall weather tend to be like where you live? Tag me at #parmsi with your Fall outfit ideas!

P.S. You might recognize this blazer from this post!

  • We are trying out a new lens for the camera, so sorry if the jacket is just plain white. We did two sets of different photo-shoots with this lens and just one set came out to be better. I think I end up returning the lens soon because it’s not my favorite so far.

Travel Diary: My First Experience In San Antonio

October 25, 2016

As you guys know from the previous Blog, we spent a couple of days in San Antonio two weekends ago. Since it was my first time visiting the city, Matin decided to get us a room on river walk area.

To start off, Marriott staffs welcomed us warmly and upgraded our room to one of the best available ones at the time. The room itself was absolutely beautiful and spacious with an amazing view of the city and the river walk. I couldn’t resist to share the photos we took on the first day of our small trip filled with big memories with you.

San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk Hotel‘s amenities were absolutely perfect. Unfortunately, since my beau can’t go swimming or spa for at least a year, we didn’t get a chance to use them this time. We had such a great experience that we decided to always stay here when we like to be around the river walk area.

P.S. Excuse the quality of the pictures due to our lack of equipment for indoors photo shooting.

For this look, I chose a fall appropriate color dress while it was still wearable in warm long nights. You guys know how much I like wearing the A-line skirts and dresses all year around. I mean who doesn’t like the fun and flirty demeanor and the illusion of a slimmer and taller body. These types of dresses that flare out slightly are ideal for balancing out broad shoulders. Also, a fit-and-flare dress plays up the thin waist and small upper body, while minimizing the hips and thighs. I adore the color of this dress with the little shimmer to it, which makes it appropriate even for holiday season.

I prefered wearing minimal accessories and very high heels for this look since the dress was the center of the attention. To wrap up the look, I wore my favorite mustard platform heels and a red clutch to make the red lines on the dress pop out.

Fall Street Style Outfit On Budget

October 14, 2016

Happy Friday sweeties!

It’s been a crazy week; all I can say is change is Good. Quitting my full-time job has been one of the greatest decisions I have made this year. I won’t lie, it was a very hard decision, but worth the risk. As you probably know, I was lucky enough to find a part-time job at a boutique, which is impossible nowadays because no company likes to invest in a part-time employee. This adjustment made me even more productive at my goals than the past. Because of my current life situation, I spent most of the time at home either doing schoolwork or blog, so now I have more time and energy to focus on them than when I worked full time. I used to hide either my iPad or book behind the register at the job to work on my school assignment or blog posts on down times, which never made my managers happy. Now, on the other hand, I work hard at my job to learn new things every day to accomplish my bigger goal and have more time and dedication to school and the blog.

Since I learned in a hard way that nothing will be handed to me in this life except my own hard work, minimizing my social life has been the hardest change. I guess turning 26 has changed my perspective on life in a better way. Finally, It made me realize ” Time is Gold”, and I will never be 25 anymore, so I have to gather all my energy to fulfill my personal dream in 4 years before I step into the great 30s. Since I always failed to manage my time, I decided to take it seriously this time and follow it through. I wake up every day as if I am working for somebody with a specific deadline. Believe it or not, I’ve been following this rule for a week and I’ve already seen lots of progress. If you like to manage your time more proper or if you are like me who hates managing their time, I would suggest watching time management videos on YouTube or even enroll in some time management classes. Here is one my favorite time management videos that you can watch later if you feel like it.

I said all these things and bored you guys to make one personal point, thoughtful risks are good and time management is the key. I never thought I would be a firm believer of them until now.

Okay,

enough of my boring cheat chat lets jump to our favorite part of the talk.

Fall street style outfit

There should be no unbreakable rules or I should say No Rules when it comes to an outfit.I personally just wear what feels right at that particular moment. I always say a cute outfit Does not necessary means investing lots of money. I love recycling my pieces almost every season, so I buy garments that I can wear differently in diverse looks. Since Houston weather is always a bit hormonal and you can never predict the rain even when It’s 90-degrees, I still like to transition some peices of my outfit to fall without being choked up from the October heat. Thanks to Zara for making life much easier. I can never go there and come back empty handed. Zara is literally the candy store, so I try my best to avoid going there most of the time.

Off-the-shoulder trend

Zara Leather shorts

For this look, I wanted to look chic and effortless while the outfit fits the bill! I started my outfit with this grayish taupe off-the-shoulder top. I love the breeziness of the viscose fabric and how effortless chic this top looks; of course a little ruffle can never hurt. I paired the top with a pair of high-waist pleather shorts that I adore. Honestly, I think these faux leather shorts are the best purchase of this outfit, and I will definitely bore you with them on the blog and Instagram for a while, so be prepared. I still follow the same technique that we talked on the previous blog for buying faux leather pieces. I love the belt of these shorts and how versatile they are. You can easily dress them up or down.

Nasty Gal Snake booties

I kept the rest of my outfit simple since I wanted the shirt and shorts to shine through, so I went very minimal with the accessories. I wrapped up my look wearing my favorite simple Chloe clutch and a pair of booties for the fall spirit sakes.

Have a Lovely Weekend!
