If you haven't noticed already, I am obsessed with these floral pants from Zara. It's a burnt floral print to be exact, and that makes me love them even more.

Been meaning to showcase how you can so easily dress up and down in these pants. It's simple as pairing it with a subtly textured top underneath a strong shoulder blazer or a no-fuss sheer tank top and statement accessories. The skies' the limit.

In other news and in light of recent, tragic events, most notably Hurricane Sandy that has ravaged most of the major cities out on the East coast, I just want to say how thankful I am to even have a roof over the top of my head, a constant supply of food to keep me well-fed and a supportive circle of family and friends. I am also equally blessed to have readers, like you, who encourage me to keep committing to my personal style and raising my voice to greater heights. Thank you.
