Winter Style: Holiday Outfits #1 +#2


It’s holiday party season, which means it’s time for red everything, velvet dresses, high heels, and tons of tinsel. Stay tuned for some cool outfit ideas!

Holiday Outfit Inspiration #1: Red Peplum Top

I love wearing red to holiday parties. I think it’s such a great, festive color. So a red peplum top is a great central piece for this outfit. Peplum tops help whittle your waist and create and hourglass figure. Pair with a pair of black leather or coated pants and a patterned sports jacket for a cool-girl kind of look and a bit of shine. Finish off the look with black stilettos with red accents, a black bag with some silver hardware and a solid silver choker to polish the entire outfit.

Choker: O-Ring Snake Chain Coker in Silver, $3.90 at Forever 21

Shoes: C Label Napoli-28 in Black, $32.99 at 6pm

Purse: Ida Clutch by Carlos Santana, $29.99 at TJ Maxx

Jacket: Jealous Tomato Floral Raglan Scuba Bomber Jacket, $29.99 at Century 21

Holiday Outfit Inspiration #2: Denim Mini Skirt

Another look I really love is the denim mini skirt. Though people may traditionally associate denim skirts with springtime, I happen to love a denim skirt paired with a long coat and long sleeves for the winter. This look is definitely more casual and fun, so it would be great for a small New Years gathering. I’d start with a straight denim skirt, paired with an athletic-looking all-black long sleeve shirt. Pair this with sneakers (bonus style points if they have a platform!) and layered necklaces for a street-style vibe. Top with a brightly colored peacoat, flashy clutch and ultra-cool minimalistic digital watch and voila! You’ve got an effortlessly cool holiday look!

I hope these holiday outfit inspirations gave you some ideas on how to amp up your style game for this holiday season! Hope your holidays are wonderful and full of happiness, love, laughter, and great fashion!

Fall Fashion: Thanksgiving Outfits #2 + #3


Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I’m so excited to see my family and eat some delicious food. In preparation for the holiday, I wanted to share two more last minute outfit ideas with you. Hope you all feel inspired!

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #2: Fringe Top

Like I said in my last post, I try to wear flowy and comfortable clothes for holiday dinners. Aren’t holidays all about being comfortable and happy? But that doesn’t mean style gets thrown completely out the window.

Tops with fringe on them are bohemian-chic, and usually very flowy. Even with an empire waist, like this one from Pink Ice, there is still plenty of room for food beneath that top. The knit and fringe details add visual appeal to your outfit. I would pair this shirt with a pair of basic black leggings, both for contrast and for the stretchy waistband. Throw on a pair of over the knee boots on top for a bit of polish and edge. I love a cognac-colored boot with a lace back detail to play off the more natural color of the knit top. I would also add a scarf and purse with similar blue hues to add a pop of color and detail to an otherwise bland outfit.

ScarfFringed Geo-Pattern Scarf, $12.90 at Forever 21

PurseMerona Women’s Vertical Buckles Crossbody Faux Leather Handbag in Blue Foil, $29.99 at Target

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #2: Sweater Dress

One last option I’d like to share with you all is a sweater dress. They’re cozy and comfy, and something with a fit and flare silhouette is perfect for Thanksgiving. To keep your outfit from being just another dress look, add a collared shirt. This adds some polish and interest to the ensemble. For something with short sleeves, use a collared tank top. If your dress has longer sleeves, use a long sleeve collared shirt and roll up the cuffs. To keep this look fun, but still comfortable, finish off the outfit with a pair of chunky heels, a metallic cuff bracelet, and a quirky purse.

Fall Fashion: Favorite Looks + Thanksgiving Outfit #1


I love autumn. The colors, the weather, the beginning of the holiday season, the clothes. I can finally layer my clothes and bundle up in some of my fave clothes.

Even though we’re already more than halfway through November and almost on to winter already, I thought now would be a good time to share some of my favorite fall looks with you. Stay tuned for some Thanksgiving outfit inspiration after!

Scarves + Caps

Scarves have been some of my favorite fall and winter accessories for a few years now. When the temperature starts to drop, they’re the first thing I reach for. I also got into baseball caps a couple of months ago, probably in springtime. I wore them all summer, both at camp when I wanted to keep my hair under control and the sun out of my eyes, and at school when I wanted to go for a trendy street-style look. This fall, however, I’ve realized how much I love the pair together. They’re the epitome of street-style chic. They’re cozy and comfy but totally on trend. I think the pairing reminds me very much of a celebrity just trying to go about their life while hiding from the paparazzi. This look is perfect for class, running errands, or an afternoon out.

Scarf: Merona Women’s Plaid Scarf in Gray and Cream Stripe, $19.99 at Target

Cap: American Needle X UO Tonal Strap-Back Hat in Slate, $29.00 at Urban Outfitters

Stand-Out Coats

A stand-out coat is always a winner, and this month especially I’ve been hardore ogling some bright and eye-catching coats that are perfect for this season and next. They’re cozy as anything and make your outfit stand out. Extra credit if your coat has fancy buttons!

Camel Coat (right): Flap Pocket Coat, $44.90 at Forever 21

Big Sweaters

I used to be all about form-fitting silhouettes, but the last few months, I have realized the appeal of big sweaters that pool around you. They’re great for snuggling into when you’re a little cold, convenient for pairing with leggings and boots when you’re running late, and perfect for so many situations. I have so many different styles now, like a regular long-line sweater and a cold-shoulder drapey sweater, and I could just live in them. Find one in a color and style you love and rock it all fall and winter!

Turtlenecks

For years, I refused to wear turtlenecks, even though my mother always begged me, but at the start of the semester, I got really into them. I had gotten one last fall at Target, but I had only worn it a handful of times, and then I bought another one in September. They’re classy and cool, not to mention super trendy. I love pairing them with high-waisted jeans or skirts and long necklaces. I tend to stick to solid colors because I find them more slimming, but if you love the look of a patterned turtleneck, go for it!

Now, onto the promised bit of inspiration…

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #1: Flowy Pants

I love sharing outfit ideas with you guys because I have so so many and I can’t always wear them all myself.

I firmly believe that the only way to get through the holidays, especially Thanksgiving, is to wear comfy, stretchy clothes that you can breathe in. There’s so much food and drink that it can be hard to stay in restrictive skinny jeans or a tight miniskirt throughout the many courses of the Thanksgiving meal. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up looking cute as can be!

For this particular outfit, I’m loving a pair of stretchy, flowy pants that let you eat as much as you want without ruining your outfit. Many of you may see flowy pants as a spring- or summertime piece, but when you choose something that looks a bit more structured, like a denim-esque pair, you can pull them off in the fall, too. This pair from Pink Ice is like the jegging version of flowy pants: looks like denim, but in real life, they’re 100% tencel, which is a super comfy and stretchy material. Pair these high-waisted beauties with a simple crop top and a flowy poncho, cardigan or kimono that you can cuddle (or hide!) in once the food coma hits. Bonus points if they color coordinate! I think these pants just scream for a heeled bootie, so I picked a pair with a cool lacing detail. I also think this outfit is calling for a trendy choker, so I picked a velvet choker with a leaf charm that matches the black booties and the whole outfit’s boho flair. Last but not least, finish it off with a cool patterned tote that boasts some contrasting colors. This will add some spark and extra detail to your outfit. Now, all you have to focus on is eating!

Fall Fashion: September Haul


As some of you may know, I am going to Washington, D.C. in November for Pan-Hellenism Weekend, which is basically just a giant convention of Greeks. I’m super pumped, not only because I’m going to see friends from camp and go to a new place, but also because I had to get some new clothes for the occasion!

I am a self-proclaimed shopaholic. Once I start, it’s very, very hard to get me to stop. I recently bought a decent amount of clothes from Target, Century 21 and Forever 21, so I figured I’d share them with you Tasters. Everything is styled with NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Vintage (here). Also, a major shout out to my mom for buying most of these clothes and my brother Nicholas who came shopping with us and spent two hours taking pictures of me. Hope you all enjoy!

My 2016 Style Inspirations

Even though the year has really just begun, I can think of a few ever-trendy and just overall cool celebrities that definitely slayed in 2015, and will without a doubt continue to shine in the new year. Here are some fabulous women who will be influencing my style this year!

  1. Khloe Kardashian: Khloe has to be one of my favorite celeb style and fitness icons. I admire her confidence and the way that she (rightfully) shows off the body and curves that she has worked for. And, to top it all off, she looks good on the red carpet and at the gym! Props to her for making herself a priority despite her crazy year! What I’m Stealing from Her: Her confidence to rock her curves and her super cute workout attire (not to mention her dedication to looking and feeling fab)!

  2. Zendaya: Zendaya has drawn a lot of positive attention to herself this past year, especially as a strong proponent of being your beautiful, natural self. I admire her confidence in herself and her strong ideas about what truly makes a person beautiful, as well as her trendy and age-appropriate outfits. What I’m Stealing from Her: Her trendy and fun, yet still mature and powerful, vibe.

  3. Selena Gomez: Selena Gomez is one celebrity that I feel like I’ve grown up with, since I always watched her on the Disney Channel. I love how in recent years she has embraced her maturity and begun to experiment with different, more varied styles, earning her the title of “style chameleon.” What I’m Stealing from Her: The confidence and adventure to try out (and hopefully rock!) a variety of styles and looks.

  4. Nicki Minaj: Nicki is another Hollywood celeb with crazy curves! I love how Nicki uses her curves to her advantage and always plays them up. She has killer confidence and a sense of fashion-y adventure. What I’m Stealing from Her: Her confidence to wear ensembles that flatter her body, especially in bright colors or unconventional prints and fabrics.

  5. Vanessa Hudgens: I have always admired Vanessa’s effortless, boho-edgy chic aura, especially the way she accessorizes. She always has the coolest jewelry and an easy-going and confident vibe. What I’m Stealing from Her: Her ability to accessorize and pile on rings and bracelets, something that I have an obsession with but can’t pull of as effortlessly or as fashionably!

#OOTD July 18, 2015 + How To Rock a Backyard Party


Hey you guys, welcome back to Tantalizingly Tasteful!! The other night, I went to a backyard party to celebrate my friend Jen’s 18th birthday and high school graduation. (Happy birthday and congrats again, Jen!!) Backyard parties are usually pretty mellow and enjoyable, but sometimes weather can get in the way. How can you be prepared for anything that may come your way and still look super cute? Keep reading for my tips, but first, my #OOTD!!

Where You Can Get It

Loramendi Crochet Top in Natural – $50.00 at Kohl’s; Women’s Jersey Shelf-Bra Camis in Black – $7.50 at Old Navy; Red Crystal and Gold Bling Stacking Bracelets Set of 7 – $5.00 at Icing; Stella & Max You & Me Wristlet in Anise – $22.99 at Macy’s; Adriana New York Joye Laser Cut Espadrille Flat in Gold – $14.99 at T.J. Maxx; Distressed Boyfriend Jeans in Denim – $32.90 at Forever 21; Metallic Bangle Set in Gold Metallic – $5.99 at Rue21

Stay Comfy and Chic at a Backyard Bash

  1. Check the weather beforehand: Have an idea of what the anticipated weather is. This will help you dress appropriately for the weather. If the forecast expects it to get chilly at night, you know to wear a sweater or bring a denim jacket, but if it says that it’s going to be humid, you know you’re okay to wear a tank top!
  2. Know your body and yourself: Do you get cold really easily? Are you super likely to get eaten alive by mosquitoes? Are you a really messy eater and liable to stain a white shirt with ketchup or salsa? Make sure that you know what you could possibly encounter and be ready for anything you may face!!
  3. Balance your outfit: This one’s just a basic rule of life: if you’re planning on wearing a shirt that shows some skin (like I did), wear pants. If you want to wear a pair of shorts, cover up your top half a little more. Creating a balance will make you look chic and appropriate.
  4. Keep your hair natural: Do me a favor and don’t do anything special to your hair. Last night, my friend Emily spent half an hour curling her hair for the party, and it fell almost as soon as we got to the party. Straightening or curling your hair is pointless, the summer humidity will just undo it. I suggest leaving it down (like I did) or styling your natural hair with some clips or a headband. That way, you don’t have to worry about all your hard going to waste.

Now I’d like your feedback! I hope this post gave to a little bit of a peek into my life and gave you some ideas about how you can rock a tee! What did you think of my outfit and my tips? Do you have any ideas about how you’d execute an outfit like this? Would you like to see more posts like this in the future?

#OOTD July 17, 2015 + From Sleep Style to Street Style: How to Glam Up a T-Shirt



Hey everyone, hope you’re having a great weekend!! During the summer, I tend to get very lazy as far as fashion and makeup go, but I’ve noticed that I feel less confident when I’m dressed in leggings and a T-shirt with no makeup on. So I set out to make sure that I can still look glam despite the fact that I’m just wearing a T-shirt, and lo and behold, I rocked it the other night for a night in with my girls! Who says you have to wear sweatpants for a night in?! Here’s my outfit of the day, and stay tuned for some of my tips on how to amp up your tee!!

Take Your Tee From Drab to Glam

Here’s some celeb and street style inspiration before I give my tips:

Pairing a plain tee with an eye-catching pattern like cheetah prints and trendy accessories takes your outfit from sleep style to street style, picture via stylecarrot.com
  1. Go monochromatic (or close to it): Wearing all black or all white can look super chic and effortlessly cool. It’s simple and minimalistic, which is totally trendy and urban. If you’re feeling daring, by all means, pick another, brighter color, but I think that black and white are the most sophisticated and stylish colors to go all out on.
  2. Make it a look: By adding makeup and accessories, you can take a tee from sleep style to street style. But, it also depends on the occasion. If you’re getting ready for a night in with friends, like I did, let your makeup do the talking and keep your accessories minimal and casual. If you’re prepping for a date or party, be a little more adventurous with your accessories, trading in flats for heels, a huge bag for an adorable clutch, and bohemian string bracelets for some glam cuffs or earrings. But always remember to let only one part of your face take center stage with makeup to avoid looking like a clown!!
  3. Create a silhouette: Keep your T-shirt from looking boring by tucking it into a pair of pants or a skirt. This will give your body shape and keep your tee from looking like it should be worn with leggings.
  4. Knot or tie it: Add a playful and chic look to your favorite tee by knotting or tying it in the front to create a shorter shirt over a pair of high-waisted jeans or a skirt! You can even throw it over your fave dress to instantly create a skirt!!
  5. Layer it: Who says you have let the tee stay as is? Throw it over a button down shirt to create a preppy collared look, or wear it under a vest for an edgier look. Pair it with a blazer to make it look more professional and sophisticated!!
