Yes Pleases of the Week

“Live your life as a series of obsessions.”

One of my favorite times of the week is here, my Yes Pleases. This week was another fun one to put together. Here we go to this week’s Yes Pleases !

Yes Please #1: Football Season

Football Season is back and already we are into week three. I am so excited for football to be back. I love the sport, the energy it brings, the food and of course supporting my Chicago Bears. Here’s to hoping for an awesome football season for DA Bears, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Slip On Mules

So I have been a fan of mules for awhile now and so excited to see the evolution of them. There are heels, faux fur, florals, metallics, nudes, neutrals and so many other amazing details and options. As mules continue to transform so do my outifits. I continue to say a big Yes Please to mules !

Yes Please #3: Eric & Jessie is Back on E!

Yay, Eric&Jessie is back on E! after being away for 3 years. It premiered a couple of weeks ago and episode 3 just aired. This show is happy, goofy, full of laughs and serious relationship goals. The show is a must watch and a big Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Woven Pear Socks

Woven Pear has quickly become a part of my sock drawer ever since I picked up my first two pairs at a local boutique. They are cute, comfy and full of fabulous details (one being the cute woven pear) and love all the different choices. I recently was sent these amazing Ice Cream socks and Bison socks to feature, which is officially one of my favorite packages to get. They are another accessory that gives not only comfort, but that fun peekaboo pop to an ensemble. For me, Woven Pear is always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Hask Hair Products

My hair is thick and there is a lot of it. I am always looking for great products that are paraben & sulfate free. I have fallen in love with Hask Hair ever since I first tried their shampoo, conditioner and dry shampoo (my fave). I have been wanting to try all their products for awhile so I was overjoyed when Hask Hair themselves sent me all their amazing products. I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement to try them all. Hask Hair is hair happiness for me and always a Yes Please !

Team Tee Trends Featuring Sharp Dressed Fan

To say last year when my Chicago Cubs won the World Series was amazing and historic is an understatement. This season has had a sense of up and down, but with continued excitement and fun. So with a 2 game lead in their division, they need to keep playing hard and with heart like they have been to keep that lead. A few things for them to keep their lead are to stop moving around the line up (slowly getting better with that), get the bullpen’s confidence up and get Willson Contreras off the DL, which thankfully happened yesterday before game 1 with the Mets. His energy and talent are electric and contagious. Here is to great hitting & pitching throughout the rest of the season.

September baseball is going to continue being amazing and I believe in the Cubs to keep that Central Division lead. Go Cubs Go ! One of the many things I love about baseball is the love and loyalty to one’s team. The fun comroderity and competition that comes with family and friends creates such joy and an added bonus to an already amazing game. It is one big family when it comes down to it and brings us to together.

To celebrate September baseball for my Cubs, I thought I would channel some of my favorite fashion trends of the moment. Two of my favorite things are fashion and sports. I get to combined them everyday and this series with the Mets is no different in doing that. The trends I have incorporated are a vintage graphic tee and the color of power red or Cubbie red as I like to call it.

This vintage tee has been passed around throughout my family, which of course I had to pair it with my Cubbie power red Mary Janes by Nine West along with my favorite high waisted jeans. Of course I had to add a vintage Cubs hat (thanks Dad) as well as a Cubbie power red lip ! Here is to continued ensembles with a flair for sports and fashion this September baseball season representing my favorite team 🙂

As I mentioned before what I love about baseball is that it brings us all together and this collaboration rains true to that. Sharp Dressed Fan and I have collaborated for the Cubs vs Mets series, which concludes tonight. It was fun for us both to style and represent our teams with our perspective vintage tees. Below is her chic account of styling for her New York Mets.

Sharp Dressed Fan Knows How to Represent Her New York Mets

So admittedly, my Mets aren’t doing nearly as well as the Cubbies this season, but I still love ’em! Even after living out here in California for 10+ years, I still follow the Metsies religiously, and listen to, or watch, about 95% of the games. Sundays are especially fun, as we’ve created a group of loyalists in LA , and gather to watch, and drink through, the games together. While the Yankees may claim more fans, the New Yorkers who bleed orange and blue are absolute die-hards, and even the first to form a traveling fan club (with their own apparel line!)

The look I’ve put together for this Mets v. Cubs series is based on two major trends this year: the white logo tee, and the pleated midi skirt. The versatility of the tee knows no bounds, but, as it’s still a new-again trend, it can be more difficult to find a crew neck for women. My choice is actually a vintage Mets tee from the innaugural MLB Victoria’s Secret Pink line, but I’ve linked to another excellent option below in a child’s size. Don’t be afraid to try sizes outside your range – a kids L or XL makes a close match for a women’s S or M most times. My cobalt skirt was a fab clearance find at Forever21 (who can say no to a $6 skirt?!) and I’ve linked to an even lovlier one from Anthropologie, but they’re so popular at the moment, that you can find one in any price range. My gold heels can easily be swapped out for a more reasonable day-shoe, like the block heel alternatives I’ve linked to, but be creative! The best part about dressing up a tee is that there is no wrong answer, just as long as your repping your team.

Hat: Macy’s

Tee: Fans Edge

Skirt: Anthropologie

Shoes: Saks Fifth Avenue

Dream A Little Dream Tonight

“Inspiration is finding something that excites you.” ~Connie Smith

These stairs in Silverlake got me thinking about what I am passionate about. My two passions in life I can’t do without are sports and fashion. It seems more and more that these 2 loves of mine are colliding, which is so exciting. What has allowed these two worlds to collide are my lifestyle blog and pr career.

IMG_1885

My passion for both grows everyday. My blog allows me to embrace both loves and not having to choose between the two is such a joy and dream.

Each day I love finding ways to continuously have sports and fashion in my professional life and personal life. I am sure after I shot on the rainbow stairs, I went home changed into my sports gear and watched some baseball and/or golf. Even as I type up this post, I am watching my Chicago Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds.

Something I still struggle with is trying to fullfill both sides of me (fashion girl & sports fanatic), but the more I focus on my blogging and honing in on my pr career it seems my two passions come together.

IMG_6601

Being at the rainbow stairs and some moments since then, I have realized that I don’t have to choose between the two. For y’all too, if you have multiple passions in life, don’t get discouraged about feeling like you have to choose. You can find ways to pursue them both or even mold them together.

Each day, I am so grateful that everyone around me is so supportive, allow me to be me and pursue what I love. Don’t let others get in your way of what you are passionate about , where there is a will there is a way.

I love fashion and I love all things sports. They will both always be a part of all aspects in my life. I am so grateful and excited about where they both will take me!

P.S. What are your loves & passions in life ?

Another note, I find that when trying to focus on my passions listening to my favorites helps me to not lose track of what I love.

Yes Pleases of the Week

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” ~ Oprah

In the words of Oprah, it is all about what excites you each and every week or as y’all know for me it is my Yes Pleases ! They are here and they all truly excite me and hope they inspire y’all to embrace what excites you. This week it is as usual an array of different things, which is what I love. There is never just one realm I am into. So I hope y’all enjoy.

Here are my Yes Pleases of the Week !

Yes Please #1: Coco Rose Boutique

Coco Rose Boutique has become my new favorite boutique in the last couple years. It has a great boho chic, fun vibe and never disappoints on what they have to offer. I always finding something I love and this past time was no different and to that I always say Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Wrigleyville Sports

My all time favorite sports store is Wrigleyville Sports. It is right by Wrigley Field and online as well (which I love). It is a place I can get all my Cubs’ goodies as well as my other fave Chicago teams, which is my long time obsessions. I finally went there for the first time last year and I went over board with sports gear, so glad I did. Wrigleyville Sports is the best and will forever be a huge Yes Please !

Yes Please #3: Getting a Blow Dry

This week I got another amazing blow dry from Hair by Mal . I have always loved a pamper day that involved getting an amazing blow dry. What I have also realized this past time is how therapuetic getting a blow dry is for me. Just taking that time to be in the moment and relax is something I very much need. So a blow dry is amazing, relaxing and gets my Yes Please vote !

Yes Please #4: LaCroix Sparkling Water

I am officially hooked on LaCroix Sparkling Water and have to make sure to have it near by at all times. I love them all, but my go to is LaCroix Passionfruit. Yummy and Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Flamingo Prints

Flamingo Print anything is my new favorite print especially on an awesome romper like the one below. It’s a fun and fantastic print that is perfect for any occasion. The best is when my mom gets flamingo print pieces and I can go and borrow them 🙂 This is a print that will always be a trend and Yes Please in my closet. Don’t be surprised if a flamingo pool and drink floatie pop up in the future 🙂

These are my passions/Yes Pleases that I continue to love and embrace. I look forward to next week’s. Thanks again for tuning in !

Throw Some Dapper Godz On It

“Luxury can be everyday.”

My style seems to be ever evolving these days. I love a mix of high & low, casual & dressy, luxury & simple and sporty & trendy. Dapper Godz falls into that category of them all. This is why I love this brand that is owned by a great friend and based out of Los Angeles.

IMG_1017At first glance it seems to to be a brand for gentlemen, which it is, but what makes it so amazing is that women can rock the bowties, pocket squares and tie pins as well. Dapper Godz has so many options for many occasions from solids to patterns to floral tie pins. A great to introduce yourself to the brand and fall in love with it is through the Gentlemen’s Box, which is what I received. It consists of a gorgeous bowtie, pocket square, tie pin and Valentino Umo Intense Men’s fragrance (exclusively at Nordstrom & smells great for women wanting to try it as well).

 

The Gentlemen’s Box makes for a great gift for your groomsmen (especially with wedding season in full swing), Father’s Day, Birthdays and not just for the men in your life, but for the ladies in your life who love fabulous fashion. Remember, ladies can rock bowties too !

Dapper Godz is high quality, on trend and for anyone that loves to rock great accessories. Dapper Godz can be for any occasion from casual occassions or that next wedding celebration so head on over to their website and pick up your Dapper Godz’ original !

~Kerry of KLM Fashion Style

P.S. How do you love to style your bowtie ? I love to rock it with my jeans, over the knee boots and a fabulous blouse !

Perfect Formulas: Healthy Nails are Beautiful Nails

“Your nails are a way to speak your style without having to say a word.” ~ Tammy Taylor

For as long as I can remember I have loved having my nails done and keeping them healthy. It was an activity my sister and I enjoyed partaking in with our mom at the dining room table. It is a tradition that we still partake in whether at home or at a salon that we love. What we love about this tradition is that it’s full of laughter and bonding with one another.

So with nail polish being a dominate accessory for me, I was so pumped when I received this Pink Gel Coat polish from Perfect Formula. What is so great about this product is the keratin protein-rich nail coating that instantly strengthens, seals and protects the nails. I am already obsessed and after only one use I can see and feel a difference in my nail health. Yay ! Some other added bonuses about the Pink Gel Coat polish is that it dries quickly and also works as a base coat. Yes Please, sign me up !

This is a product that is great for not only your nail health, but is fun and fabulous as well. It is a product I love and am so glad it was introudced to me. I highly recommend  trying out Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat, which can be found at any Ulta Beauty store. Yay for Fantastic Nail Care !

~Kerry of KLM Fashion Style

P.S. What is your favorite nail polish you would pair with Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat? Mine is this nude color by Oribe. I will be wearing both every day !
