Too often we overthink our outfit choices on a rainy day. Dressing up on a daily basis is a struggle and adding inclement weather doesn't help at all. As a matter of fact, most people would rather stay home and not get into the hassle of looking for the perfect rainy day look.
Today, I want to tell you that living in San Diego has taught me to relax on the rain stress and not overthink my outfit choices. We have had rainy days galore and I want to share my styling tips with you.
First, we need to get rid of the negative mood towards the rain. We have to accept the fact that the rain isn't going anywhere. Secondly, we must admit that the rain makes things a little bit edgier yet sometimes fun. For example, taking a picture of your outfit outside on a rainy day will highlight that rocker chic side you hardly ever show.
In addition, I suggest you go out and purchase at least two different pairs of rain boots. I currently bought a short animal print rain bootie from Steve Madden and a longer rain boot from Nordstrom. When I feel like going casual for school or to run errands I go with rain boots and a pair of leggings or animal print pants. I also like to wear sweatshirts or long sleeve shirts with hoodies on them. However, if I plan on going out or have a business meeting I will go with wearing black jeans, patent leather boots, a black shirt, and a oversized furry coat.
Rainy days are fun and make fashion cool if you know how to style properly. My number one styling tip for rainy days is to layer up! Layering looks cool, plus you can always take of a piece of clothing when you feel warm.

Pastel Palettes are a reminder of elegance. You instantly look poised and à la mode by wearing pastel colors. What's important to know is that light pink, blue, and green are the go-to colors of chic. You can literally wear a pair of light green jeans with a pink t-shirt and pair that look with a printed coat and still look sophisticated. My personal pastel color clothing preference is a simple yet fun gown.
What's your favorite pastel color and how do you like wearing them? Let us know in the comment section below! If you have a pastel ootd you want to share, tag us on social media!

Every good stylist or any fashionsta knows about Hollywood fashion tape and it's many uses. For those who are not aware of the use of this product we will be giving you a few tips on how you can use fashion tape to save your stylish souls from wardrobe malfunctions.
What is fashion tape?
Fashion tape are double-sided adhesive strips which can be used on almost any piece of fabric. You can use fashion tape to stick a piece of fabric onto your skin without fear of exposing skin, brand tags, or simply to fix shirt collars, or any other wardrobe malfunctions.
Where can I buy it?
You can typically purchase fashion tape at any local store. Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, or even find it online.
How long will it stay on?
Fashion tape is really good about sticking onto things. However, if you're that type of person that plays around with tape than you will eventually have to re-apply it. Although if you secure one strip of tape with a lot of it you will have a good amount of hours without having to worry about it falling out.
What can you do with it?
Fashion tape has various uses. Below you will find a list of what it's most commonly used for.

Oh la la, welcome Christmas layers! The cheer sequin and tulle bring when combined is incredibly magnificent. Today, Barby McQueen layered a baggy shirt with a tulle/sequin mini dress. She slided the right side of the shirt so the sequined strap of the dress would show which added cheer to the sequin in the baggy shirt. Barby added a bright red lip purse to make the tulle from the dress stand out from all the outfit. Considering the cold weather she wore a pair of black ankle boots to make the outfit feel a bit more winter holiday friendly. For more on Barby's outfit please check out our Instagram and Facebook.
