On Thursday September 8th 2016, my sisters and I embarked on a memorable trip to Rosemont, Chicago Illinois for a “sisters only vacation. This “sisters only” vacation trip was relaxing, eventful and filled with tons of happy moments. Just wanted to share a few of my looks from the trip, let me know which one is your favorite!

In case you haven’t already seen it all over social media, the 90’s choker necklace trend is back and better than ever! Weather on the red carpet or simply grabbing a bite to eat celebrities like Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid among many others are all rocking this throwback 90’s trend. But don’t be mistaken the choker has come a long way from the stretchy tattoo 90’s look and into the new millennium with a much sleeker, elegant look.

These sleek, delicate fashion pieces are a collection of velvet ribbon, dainty collars and tangled metal that adds a little bit of chic to any outfit, pulling together your overall look. Whether your going for a edgy, glam or off-duty model look there is a choker out there to compliment your look.

High end or budget all brands are offering stylish new options for this 90’s turned 2000’s trend. Below is small portion of my choker collection, most are from Forever 21 which offers trendy and affordable options.

If you are allergic to cosmetic jewelry and/or have sensitive skin, paint over pendent with 1 to 2 coats of clear, natural nail polish (I am currently using Mineral Fusion Top Coat) or opt for velvet and cloth based chokers.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Fall, which can only mean one thing…It’s Sweater Weather! With cool mornings and warm afternoons, Sweaters are great practical accents to add to your layered Fall look. In addition to being a comfortable casual accent, sweaters can make a huge fashion statement, adding an element of style to your outfit; leather pants, mini skirts, a-line dresses, comfy joggers or skinny jeans, sweaters can be worn with anything.

Weather your the modest monochromatic powdered sweater type of girl or the super fiery, stylish metallic sweater type of girl, there is a sweater for everyone!
