I am super excited to finally share my personal style with you folks – and also very nervous. I have been reluctant to post style photos, but I finally caved. For years I have received compliments on my pairings, from friends and strangers alike, urging me to show it off in photographic form. However, a part of me has always felt like being your “own model”, so to speak, is a bit self-important, narcissistic, and not me at all. Do not misunderstand, I love style bloggers and follow a few I really like and find inspiring. It just was never ME.
But I recently changed my tune, and decided to get out of my comfort zone and have a little fun here at MONARCH. My goal for showcasing my personal style is to inspire and help my readers create their own simple, beautiful and chic looks.
This particular look is my current favorite. I feel amazing in it. The faux leather pants are what I LIVED in last fall/winter, and could not wait to whip them out again. I literally wish I could wear these, every day without anyone noticing. It is a look in which I feel most comfortable, sexy and myself.
The Free People lace up sandals are my new love. I stumbled upon these puppies a couple of weeks ago, and said, “MINE!” And they were on sale. Score. These are super comfortable and I have worn these all day without discomfort. And since I am in L.A., I will be able to rock these season after season.
I also cannot get over this M*A*C Cosmetics satin lipstick in Amorous that I have been wearing daily. It is the perfect darker natural lip color for the caramel skinned lady.
