Current Color Craving: Vibrant Red

If you were to take a peek into my wardrobe, you would notice one thing right off the bat. About 95% of my closet is either white, gray, black, or navy. I have a select handful of colored pieces that I’m comfortable in, and they’re probably the least worn items in my closet. If something comes in white or black, you can guarantee that’s what I’ll buy it in. During NYFW, it’s always the perfect opportunity to step out of your comfort zone when it comes to dressing, and that’s exactly what I did. I fell in love with this…

Menswear-Inspired Dressing for Fall

As I mentioned in my last post, there were several trends I saw during New York Fashion Week that I just can’t wait until next spring to start wearing. Amongst the power suits and feminine touches were the most classic menswear-inspired pieces. From oversized jackets and jumpers to trousers, taking style cues from the guys is something on-trend for the coming months. I’ve always found that wearing my pieces more oversized feels more natural – I usually tend to even size up in tops to achieve that boxy, tom-boyish look. I couldn’t be happier to see that oversized bottoms are…

Top Five Fall Essentials to Start Wearing Now

The temps are finally dropping and the leaves are starting to change, which can only mean one thing: fall is finally fully upon us! After seeing incredible autumn street style during NYFW, I couldn’t wait to get home and begin prepping my wardrobe for fall. The moment I arrived back, I pulled out my cozy sweaters and boots, and placed them front and center in my closet. While fall basics are great, there were a few items trending for fall I couldn’t help but add to my collection. From slouchy boots, to berets and retro menswear-inspired plaids, there’s so much…

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 Vlog

Hard to believe it, but another NYFW has come and gone. With my first fashion week over a year behind me, I was ready this time around to get to share even more of the excitement that occurs over those few days with all of you. I’d been toying with the idea of vlogging for quite some time, and finally realized there was no time like the present, and no better time than fashion week to start! From the madness of the shows, to a peek at trying on wedding dresses, and a little bit of behind the scenes, I’ve…

The Vibe at Tadashi Shoji

Though NYFW has officially come to a close, I’m still on a fashion-high, and have lots of content up my sleeves to continue to share. There are certain shows that always stick out in my mind has high points during NYFW; Tadashi Shoji being one of them. Whenever asked what my favorite show I’d seen at fashion week so far, my answer was always a resounding, “Tadashi.” I had always loved watching the show from afar in years past, but when I had the opportunity to see the show in person for the first time last year, my appreciation for…

The Vibe at Noon by Noor

Since leaving for NYFW this time last week, I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of some amazing events, be inspired by stunning collections I saw on the runways, and of course, become completely enthralled with the hustle and bustle of the city. I’ve literally been bursting at the seams to share everything I saw in New York with each of you, so be sure to stay tuned to the new tab at on my menu…

One Dress, Three Ways

When taking the plunge on purchasing something new for my wardrobe, I always ask myself the cost per wear question. Will I be able get enough use out of this item to make it worth the price tag? If the answer is no, as much as I love something, I will usually walk away. However, if I can see myself styling a piece several different ways, or reaching for it on a daily basis, then it will be a strong contender to be coming home with me. When I saw this Anthropologie blazer dress on the hanger, I was immediately…

Hurricane Harvey

Hi lovlies – I’ll be keeping today’s post short and sweet because I can’t bring myself to write about anything other than what is on the forefront of my mind today. While The M.A. Times is typically a place of fashion, beauty, and travel, I can’t ignore what’s actually going on today in Texas because of Hurricane Harvey. All of my thoughts and love go out to those in Houston and those with friends and family there. Today, I wanted to dedicate my post to sharing ways we can all help, no matter where we are, fight for this cause.…

10 of the Best Midi Skirts

Maybe it has something to do with getting older, but as the years go by, I can’t help but enjoy adding inches onto the hemline of my skirts more and more. Though I still love a sweet mini skirt on occasion, I find myself gravitating more towards midi styles on a day to day basis. For both their ease of wear and ability to be styled a hundred different ways, my closet’s collection of midis has tripled in the last couple of years. Ten Favorite Midis Just because you’re covering more skin doesn’t mean the look has to be ultra-conservative.…

Cozy Transitional Layers

While most regions of the country are still facing some seriously scorching summertime temps, I was able to get away and catch some cooler air up in the mountains of North Carolina. It’s one of my favorite places to escape to, especially this time of year (you can see my travel guide here). Though it’s still far too early for the leaves to turn and nights by the bonfire to commence, we did have enough of a crisp to the air to start layering on our favorite cozy basics. This knit open-front cardigan from Anthropologie proved to be the perfect…
