Micro trends make the world go around. Just kidding, but they are really fun and add a certain je ne sais quoi to one's wardrobe. As the seasons change, there's a short-lived fashion cycle of certain clothing and accessory trends that have a sudden boom in popularity which last at least 1-2 years. Thanks to the invention of fast fashion, in most cases, these seasonal items are loved by the masses just to be thrown to the back of our closets within the next few months.

'Tis the season for holiday cheer, yet for many of us this joyous occasion can be overshadowed by the stress that comes along with finding the perfect gifts for the women in our lives. As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, every year I become obsessed with choosing gifts that are special and useful in one's everyday life.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall.

On any given day, no matter my destination, you can find me in at least one article of men's clothing, specifically suiting. When I'm not wearing an oversized vintage blazer, then I'll be more than likely layering a men's button up as a substitute for a lightweight jacket. What I love most about menswear is the overall comfort and not being confined to material that restricts my range of motion. Also, being tall and curvy, it's sometimes impossible to get that oversized feel when shopping within the women's department. Over the years, I've gotten my hands on a plethora of blazers and button downs, even men's trousers in many different colors and prints but lately I've embraced suiting with a more feminine approach.

As a fashion writer and stylist, I enjoy keeping my finger on the pulse of the biggest outfit trends that come along each season. However, what's noticeably different this year is, people can't seem to get enough of their favorite summer 2021 aesthetics. Even as winter slowly makes its way into our lives, it seems the trends from early in the year are simply here to stay. As we get a taste of colder weather, I'm loving the transition of my summer favorites into the most coveted fall looks.

At the tender age of 29, I discovered the world of skincare after complaining to a coworker of excessively oily skin. Her list of suggested products? A cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer in that exact order. It was that simple. Easy enough, I began using her recommendations and my life was completely changed forever. Now that I'm 31 and diving deeper into my love of beauty, I've begun to question the simplicity of my everyday regimen wondering if there's more to maintaining beautiful, healthy and youthful looking skin.
