Nothing is as unpredictable as the weather this year. From 80 degrees F it went into 40 degrees F. On such confused forecast days, a spring / summer (it is almost memorial day weekend – that is legally supposed to be summer) jacket is a must. I like jackets that are light weight and those that can keep you comfortable in 45 – 65 degrees F weather. These jackets are perfect for seasonal transitions throughout the year.
Summer is just around the corner. (Trust me!) While the weather is not particularly balmy yet transition your style by layering your spring outfits with comfortable and season-friendly scarves, sweatshirts and denim jackets. Continue reading →
The stripes and florals trend is one of my FAVES right now. The combination of stripes and florals is especially popular this season, and easier to pull off than busier print-on-print pairings. It’s one of the freshest and most modern ways to throw together a casually fashion-forward ensemble. That being said, the last time I rocked this combo on the blog was in this post, way back when. I figured it was about time we let er’ shine again! So who’s with me? Are wearing the stripes and florals trend? What better way to spice up a daytime ensemble than having fun with printed separates?

It is Monday and time for a work wear showcase on Samosa POP. Today’s office wear is more new and liberal. Remember you can always have fun adding the latest trends to your work outfit – just keep the color palette uniform.
Going to work is the hardest on Mondays. After a relaxing weekend, sometimes it gets tough to roll out of bed when all you want to do is kill the alarm clock and snuggle under the sheets. When you finally do get out of the bed, with barely anytime left to get dolled up, it seems to be one of the toughest tasks to decide what to wear. So here is my attempt to tackle this challenge and help start your Monday fashionably. I prefer my work looks simple and classic. But, trends are not just for off-hours. You can easily sneak in some current trends into your work outfit. To avoid an unhappy call from HR, keep the focus on one trend at a time and the look minimalistic.
This outfit showcases one of the top trends of spring 2013 : Black and White in an office friendly version.
This season I am smitten with mixing prints to make a fun new outfit. Stripes and Polka dots are versatile and universally flattering prints that pair well with most other prints as well as each other. Continue reading →
