FALL 2016 LOOKBOOK: LOOK 4

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look four of my Fall 2016 lookbook. If you missed looks one, two, and three you can find them herehere, and here. Fall, in Chicago, has been pretty mild so far so I was able to show off the gams a bit. Each one of the looks in this lookbook series can be paired with tights or leggings to add a bit of warmth. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 4: Mean Green

I was somewhat torn with this look because I’m usually pretty matchy matchy when it comes to pairing articles of the same color. I took a risk and realized that they did work well together.

FALL 2016 LOOKBOOK: LOOK 3

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look three of my Fall 2016 lookbook. If you missed looks one and two, you can find them here and here. Fall, in Chicago, has been pretty mild so far so I was able to show off the gams a bit. Each one of the looks in this lookbook series can be paired with tights or leggings to add a bit of warmth. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.
Look 3:  Muted Colors
This look is so chill and can easily be dressed up or down. The color combination of the dress and bomber gives me a bit of Yeezy with an extra punch from the rust booties. I think this would also look great with some nude thigh high boots and a dad hat. So “Instagrammable.”

Summer ’16 Lookbook: Look 5

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look five of my Summer ’16 lookbook. In case you missed it, you can see look 1 here, look 2 here, look 3 here, and look 4 here. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 5: LBD and Beyond

We’ve all heard the rule about every woman having a little black dress, or LBD. I think this applies for day and night. The dress I’m wearing here is super casual and comfy and can be taken from day to night. I switched up a few accessories to give the dress a entirely different feel as I transitioned from day to night.

SUMMER ’16 LOOKBOOK: LOOK 4

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look four of my Summer ’16 lookbook. In case you missed it, you can see look 1 here, look 2 here, and look 3 here. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 4: That Split Though…

This skirt started as an experiment. I had this beautiful fabric and I wanted to put it to good use. A slapped a piece of elastic at the top, just playing around, and I loved the way it turned out. The giant split is the perfect amount of tease. I just had to beware of any large gusts of wind.

The skirt was made by me (Interested in purchasing one? Let me know) *Not so shameless plug*, Top is from Forever 21.

Look 3: Box Pleats on Fleek

This look is very special to me. I had this vision of a beautiful full maxi skirt in a vibrant, bold pattern. When I saw this fabric in store,  I knew I had to do it justice by creating these box pleats that works with the print perfectly. Hours of pinning, measuring, and ironing took place, but it was all worth it.

Summer ’16 Lookbook: Look 2

Hey people,  it’s NikkiSimone here. This is look two of my Summer ’16 lookbook. If you missed look 1 you can check it out right here. All of the details of this look will be listed at the very end of the post.

Look 2: Bold Print Pencil Skirt 

I really enjoyed putting this look together. It all started with this beautiful, vibrant cotton print fabric that I purchased. It took me while to figure out what to make with it. As I was staring at it one day, it just hit me. Pencil skirt. Not just any ol’ basic pencil skirt though. I had to make it my own. And if you’ve ever worn a pencil skirt, you know what a struggle it is to walk in one, especially one of midi length. I solved that issue by putting not only a standard split in the back, but a very daring split in the front as well,  and every thing just fell into place.

Summer Trends 2014

Hey people, it’s Nikki Simone here and I present to you my favorite trends of Summer 2014.

First up is Lovely Lace. You can keep it simple in white or nude, or make a statement with bold colors. You can even use this trend to accessorize, whether it’s a lace handbag, shoe, or bangle.

lace

Next up is Awesomely Athletic. There’s an array of joggers available to help you work this trend. Denim, leather, floral, etc. Throw on a cropped football jersey, a leather baseball cap, and a pair of sneakers and you’re all set.

athleticism

The third trend is the Flawless Full Skirt. I don’t know what it is about a full skirt that makes you want to twirl on a mountain like Maria in The Sound of Music. You can go mini or midi. Solid, printed, or even sheer. Pair it with some killer shoes and knock them dead.

Fourth is Gorgeous Geometric. (I’m reaching with that alliteration huh?) This trend is everywhere. You can find pieces to rock from head to toe. My favorite expression of the geometric trend is the use of tribal and African inspired prints.

Last but not least is Magnificent Mesh. You can go full on mesh like the blazer shown below, or wear pieces with small mesh insets. Either way is sexy and adds a touch of edge to your wardrobe.

That’s all for now guys. What are some your favorite trends of the season? Comment down below. As always thanks for reading and until next time, Nikki Simone.

mean-girls

Hey there, NikkiSimone here. 10 years ago today the movie Mean Girls was released. Who would’ve thought it would still be relevant and quoted on a daily basis. In honor of the movie I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite quotes and scenes that still crack me up.
