9 Olivia Culpo Looks You Need To Try This Summer

May
08

Olivia Culpo is a former Miss Universe, a model, an actress and a TV personality. She’s also one of the most fashionable celebrities out there. I’ve chosen nine of my favorite Olivia Culpo looks that you should try out this summer – check them out for yourself!

1. Red Crop Top X Jeans

Olivia sported a bright red crop top that featured off the shoulder sleeves. The belly baring top looked perfect with ripped jeans and a jacket tied around her waist. The 24-year-old rocked the look to the farmer’s market, adding reflective sunglasses and white sneakers.

2.Patterned Crop Top And Skirt Set

This outfit is perfect for summer 2017. Olivia picked a blue and white polka top set for her OOTD; the look had a square neckline crop top with a high slit skirt. The look is summery but still appropriate for day or night. I love the leather jacket as an edgy touch, as well as the chunky earrings.

This ensemble needed a pop of color on her lips and she did just that. Keep in mind this look is great for covering most of your stomach and staying comfortable, all the while looking stylish.

3. White Out

Olivia looked like the picture of elegance in an all white ensemble for an event. She kept her hair simple – opting to pull it back – while rocking a fitted neutral turtleneck dress.

The actress layered a matching coat that was nearly the same length as her frock, adding chic lace up heels. She added a pop of color with her black and white clutch and her mauve lipstick – perfect finishing touches.

4. Touch of Gold

In the next look, Olivia jazzed up a simple black dress by adding a gold pleated duster coat. In reality, you don’t need to get a gold coat like Olivia if its too bold for you – try cream, burgundy or grey. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a shimmering coat – all eyes will be on you.

She once again made her outfit the center of attention, opting to pull her locks back and strappy heels. The final elements were her chainlink purse and red lipstick.

5. Pattern X Bomber Jacket

For a more casual look, Olivia wore jeans with a white shirt. To give the look a pop of color, the brunette sported a patterned green and yellow blazer. Patterned jackets are probably one of my favorite things this season – its bright, youthful and you just can’t help but feel happy in it. She wore her brown hair loose with a center part and hit the pavement in heeled boots.

6. All Red Everything

I loveee this next look – it’s so casual yet oh so flattering. Olivia paired long cropped red leggings with a matching sports bra and jacket. She broke up the crimson colors with white sneakers.

This is great for a casual day out, errands or a day date. You can also wear this to the gym but honestly its too pretty to sweat in.

7. Set X Oversized Duster

Olivia stepped it up in an olive ribbed crop top with a coordinating skirt for a fancy night out. The longer skirt and the high neck top makes the look appropriate for pretty much any occasion. The cover up resembles an oversized blazer, which is not only comfortable but a great way to balance the two piece.

8. Neutral Top X Joggers

For a casual day out or like Olivia, a flight, try a neutral colored set. The star paired a loose fitting taupe sweater with coordinated joggers. For glam touches, swipe red lipstick on and add cream slip-ons. Keep the color palette of the accessories similar to the top and bottoms.

9. Cream Leggings X Crop Top

Last but not least, this is probably my favorite every day look. She wore high-waisted cream leggings with a classic white t-shirt. Keep the rest simple with minimal makeup and sneakers. I think this is not only sporty but it makes you look so put together. It’s great for running errands, a day date – I’d even wear it to brunch. It’s also appropriate for a workout – just add a sports bra and a hair tie!

#OOTD: Vegas casual

Earlier this month, I headed to Las Vegas and I have to say the weather was perfect! It was hot yes but not unbearably so.  Which is why I’m so glad I got this dress for my trip! It’s from Naked Wardrobe – the You’ll Look Back Dress for $34. I can’t find the black version anymore on their website but the mauve one is on sale right now for $25.

vegas2vegas3The dress is good for all shapes and sizes and it’s easily adjusted by just tightening or loosening the straps.  It was so comfortable and although you can’t see it, I added Adidas sneakers to stay comfortable. I walked so much that day I’m glad I did.  Such a great day or night dress – I’m in love!

Sorella boutique is one of my favorite stores in LA (they also have a wide selection online). The bodysuit and leggings I got from their store front on Melrose. If you’re ever in LA, I recommend popping in there.  I also met the founder Heather Sanders during one of the visits – she was soooo sweet and wow she is absolutely stunning!

Anyways not only do they have cute clothes but their pieces are great for all sizes.  They have a wide range of sizes and items that fit curvier girls as well. The bodysuit and leggings are no longer available but they have similar pieces that I’ve linked here and here.  This look I wore for a casual Sunday.

I added the hoops and Celine’s for a glamorous touch to the simple look. I chose a chunkier shoe because I wanted to keep the look casual.

My OOTD: Flannel X Faux Python

Jun
02

I can’t believe it’s already June–I feel like the year passed so quickly and now we’re already half way done with it!  I grew up in Texas so I am fond of warmer weather and in LA, it can get really hot.  However, this past weekend was a little cool, hence the long pants and semi-long shirt. I spent Saturday with my sister, Layla.  We went to Barney’s in Beverly Hills (she had a gift card 🙂 ) and it was so fun!

She ended up getting Victoria Beckham sunglasses (I’ll take a pic and put it on instagram @thelifestylereporter) and they are gorgeous!  I fell in love with these gold rimmed Saint Laurent sunglasses but I didn’t get them.  We also came back to our side of town and went to DSW-it’s a shoe store with amazing prices.  I ended up getting Adidas NEO gold sneakers for only $59 and my sister got them in black.

I should have gone to the gym, but my sister is always so busy with work that it was nice to spend the day with her. 🙂

Birthday OOTD!

3:21:15 Full Kings Game

Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve posted an outfit–I wasn’t sure I was going to post this because my jacket looks so wrinkled in the photos! LOL! I steam ironed it before I put it on but it was so hot outside that I think I sweated and wrinkled it! Gross I know but what can you do!  It didn’t look this wrinkled earlier!

Anyways, now that I’ve pointed out the wrinkles 🙂 let’s talk fashion.  I am wearing a Forever 21 linen blazer, tank and harem pants. I went to a Kings hockey game and wanted to be comfortable but also keep the outfit somewhat fancy.  It was my birthday weekend so I wanted to dress my best, for myself!  I finished the look off with my Ray Bans, Catherine Malandrino purse and Steven by Steve Madden heels.

My favorite piece right now is the harem pants/joggers I’m wearing-only $22 from Forever 21. They have a satin like texture and zipper detailing on the bottom of each leg.  I love wearing it high waisted because I can comfortably wear my crop tops without thinking I’m showing a lot of stomach. The most important thing about harem pants/joggers is before you purchase, try it on! Sometimes stores have harem pants/joggers that have a low crotch–it’s loose and not fitted at all-that’s not always flattering on all body types.  My sister originally bought this and one it cream, featured in my previous blog post.

I love mixing the black pants with blush and gray tones.  It’s a great way to lighten up an outfit but still wear dark.  I think my purse is a great addition to my closet because it’s black and white–meaning I can wear it many ways with many different colored pieces.

On my birthday, my mom made me some delicious cupcakes (vegan!) and a friend brought me flowers and a chocolate brownie.  We also had some bakery items to thinnish off the night. Not the healthiest meal but it was my birthday!! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week–now that spring is here I’m excited to wear colors other just black.

Hi! It’s been a busy couple of weeks!  I’m Persian and Persian New Years (Noruz) is around the corner. In our culture, New Years is a time of new beginnings and getting rid of the things you don’t need in life.  It’s also all about cleaning up your home and life.  I’ve been slowly but surely cleaning up and organizing.  My birthday is coming up soon so I’m excited on starting a new year a year older! 🙂

Anyways, back to this fashion post.  I went to a brunch in Newport Beach and decided to build an outfit around these harem pants/joggers.  They are actually my sister’s–she gave them to me because it didn’t fit her well.  I decided to pair it with a Forever 21 gray crop top which was slightly see through.  I added a pair of Topshop lace ups, and my Ray Bans.  I like how this outfit consists of shades of beige, including my Marc by Marc Jacobs purse.

I am heading off to the gym–I’ve been on a exercise plan for a few weeks.  Ever since I got my FitBit Charge I have been focused on weight loss and toning up.  A FitBit Charge is a band you wear around your wrist at all times (except for showering or swimming) and it measures how many steps you take, how many calories you’re burning, miles you walked, and stairs you’ve used.  I love it so much because it makes me accountable for how lazy or active I am.  My goal is to get to 10,000 steps a day and 5 miles a day.  This counts every single step you take!  I also love how the Charge measures your sleep without having to push any buttons, as well as acting as an alarm.   It vibrates when people call me and tells me on the band who is calling.  This is a must have if you want to lose weight/get fit and need to see the work you put in.  It cost $130 and comes with a charger as well.  Hope everyone is having an awesome day and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

4 Pieces You Need This March!

Mar

Hi! I love the month of March, and not just because it’s my birthday month! 🙂 I love that it means spring is around the corner and hot weather is on its way.  Check out four items you need this month!

1. Long Jersey Skirt

Kim Kardashian jersey bodycon skirt midi fittedLong jersey skirts are fitted bodycon style skirts–a different take on a tight skirt.  They are a great addition to your closet–the length instantly makes any outfit look elegant.  This is a must have for spring–it looks amazing with a crop top.  Check out these two Missguided jersey skirts in white or gray–they are only $30 each.  Try pairing the skirt with a turtleneck or sweater crop top.  Or if you don’t want to show your midriff, a bodysuit or top that is semi-sheer.

2. Sheer Turtleneck

Sheer turtlenecks are such a versatile piece–you can wear it over a bra for an OOTN or wear it with a camisole underneath for a more demure look.  It looks great tucked into a skirt or high waisted harem pants, as well as with jeans. Free People actually has a red or white sheer turtleneck on sale for $49.95, and Charlotte Russe has a black striped turtleneck on sale for $7.49!!

3. Camouflage Jacket

Camouflage jackets are such a simple way to toughen up any outfit.  It literally goes with anything, a skirt, pants, shorts, etc.  It makes any OOTD look effortlessly cool. To add edge to your look, make sure to roll up your sleeves.  Take a look at this gorgeous camo jacket at Zara for $129 .

4. Fringe Handbag

Olivia Palermo Fringe Bag Purse Handbag

Fringe is one of my favorite trends right now–it is so boho and chic!  If you’re not ready to commit to a fringed jacket or skirt, the next best thing is a fringe handbag.  It takes an everyday outfit and makes it look instantly cool.  Fringe is also a great way to take an outfit from day to night.  Zara has a gorgeous fringe bucket bag for $179.
