Puma’s Comeback

Typically, my go-to shoes are either Nike or Adidas. I needed something different and new to complete my back-to-school wardrobe. That being said, I decided to be adventurous and explore different companies. I was going to stay strong no matter how badly I wanted to buy another pair of Adidas Superstars or Stan Smiths. I decided to give Puma a shot, and I couldn’t be any happier with my decision. I’m so thrilled that I bought not one, but two fabulous pairs of Puma shoes. What made me buy my new sneakers from Puma?

I remember Puma was popular in the early 2000s but lately, I see that Puma is making a significant comeback in the latest fashion trends. Ever since Rihanna and Kylie Jenner began endorsing Puma, the company’s reputation and success skyrocketed. 

When I think of Puma, platform sneakers come to mind. I adore how they are edgy, yet classic at the same time. I believe Puma’s platform sneakers are one of the hottest shoes out there on the market, and a huge trend nowadays. So, I quickly purchased a pair of black Vikky platforms. They’re super comfortable so you could wear them all day long and have no trouble breaking them in. I love them even more because they give me an inch or two height boost. I’m only five feet tall, so it’s a bonus for me.

The second pair I bought are these classic and retro tennis shoes. The first thing that caught my attention was the color: it was bright pink, called “love potion.” I thought it was a fun, simple, and colorful detail to add to a minimalist shoe.

Anyone can wear these pairs of shoes with shorts or even a skirt or dress. The possibilities are endless with what outfits you can wear with these Puma shoes. If you’re searching for a pair of fashionable sneakers to kick off the new school year with, I highly recommend purchasing a pair from Puma.

How I Fell in Love With Working Out

To be honest, I’ve always been one of those people who would rather take a nice long nap instead of going to the gym; in fact, the thought of physical activity made me cringe. But, like everyone else, I still wanted that perfect beach bod but without the hard work. That was until my roommate introduced me to this magical powder, also known as pre-workout.

One of the biggest reasons I couldn’t get my butt over to the gym was because of my lack of energy. Pre-workout solved this problem for me and let me tell you, I don’t know what I would do without it. You can buy it online or at a supplement store. You mix one scoop of this powder with about six to eight ounces of water and voilà! You have a cup of energy, the type of energy that makes you want to move. So, your only option is to go to the gym. It’s truly been a miracle for me.

The next thing, and quite possibly my favorite thing about going to the gym, is picking out my outfit. The best part about workout clothes is that they can be worn all day every day, or at least that’s my excuse for buying a ridiculous amount of leggings and tennis shoes. My favorite outfit to wear to the gym is high-waisted leggings, an athletic tank that I tie in the front or cropped shirt, and sometimes a sweatshirt I’ll tie around my waist. I’ve always believed that feeling good helps you to perform better and when I feel good in my clothes I’m already more motivated.

The third thing that gets me in the gym is weight lifting. Recently, I fell in love with weight lifting. At first, I thought weight lifting was just for guys but I learned that’s completely wrong. Weight lifting is the best way I know how to burn fat and build muscle that tones, and sculpts my body. If I need help figuring out what exercises are best for the female body and examples of how to do them correctly, I go straight to Instagram. Instagram is full of fitness bloggers who share their own fitness journeys. Just seeing their results gives me motivation and reminds me exactly what I’m working towards. A few of my favorites include Cristina Capron, Jill Christine, and Katy Hearn.

Now my advice to you is to find the thing that makes you fall in love with working out. Figure out what it is that’s holding you back and think about how you can fix it. One of the biggest things I learned is that fitness really is a journey. You have to be patient and remember that the times you want to give up the most are the times that it’s most important to keep going; it doesn’t just happen over night.

 So, what motivates you to get your sweat on? Tag @Cfashionista on social media and let me know!

STYLE GURU STYLE: Spring Simplicity

In my opinion, spring is the worst season to dress for. You walk out of your apartment in a sweater and jeans, but by two o’clock in the afternoon, you wish you would of worn a tank top and shorts. With spring on the horizon, your closet needs versatility.

There is no better item to be versatile with than denim. Denim goes with everything and anything, but can also be dressed up or dressed down. This denim jumper is absolutely perfect for spring. It can be practically worn in all seasons, which makes it an investment piece for sure. I paired my denim jumper with a simple, cream linen shirt. The jumper is full of patches, rips, and an unfinished hem, so I wanted to add a simple top underneath to really make those details stand out.

Athletic footwear has been seen as one of this year’s hottest trends. Athletic shoes are paired with almost any type of outfit. I love how the fashion world is moving more towards comfort, including sweats, athletic footwear, and oversize hoodies. I added my Adidas Superstars with this outfit to give it a more casual look. These shoes are one of my prized possessions because I got them in London, England and have yet to see them anywhere in the United States. The overall uniqueness really popped out to be with the two-toned cream and the fine hair behind the three stripes.

One last small detail I added to my outfit was my watch. I am always attracted to accessories that are effortless, yet stand out. This watch will go with any outfit and give it that extra push of sophistication. It has a real marble face with a solid gray strap, which gives it the ability to look professional or casual.

Keep it light and fun this spring. This is the time to get out of those dark, depressing colors of winter and step out in a colorful new style.


For this article, I wanted to shed a little light on me and my style! I grew up with three brothers, so for a lot of my life, I was a serious tomboy who had absolutely no fashion sense! As you can see in the pictures, that tomboy style sort of stuck with me. I am now extremely close to my brothers so it’s no surprise really that the tomboy in me still remains, but now she has some fashion sense. So this article is a dedication to all those tomboys who want to be comfortable, sensible, and still be fun, cute, and fashionable!

In this, I am wearing fishnet leggings and ripped jeans, honestly one of my favorite trends for this year, and quite possibly on my top 10 list of favorite trends of all time! I honestly cannot even help how much I have fallen in love with fishnets and ripped jeans! My shoes actually belong to my younger brother! A real tomboy look would not be complete without the touch of an actual guy’s item! A guy’s time is the secret key ingredient for this Style Guru’s tomboy look! These sneakers are called huaraches and I tend to implement sneakers into my tomboy styles. My shirt has a touch of maroon lining at the bottom as a way to add some color into the look. I would not be me if a touch of color wasn’t splashed onto my outfit here and there.

Well loves, I hope you enjoyed this little look into my style and I cannot wait to share more with you! If once a month is not a frequent enough dosage of your fave Style Guru (me) then just make sure to check out and follow all of my social media!

ALL IN THE DETAILS: ’90s Inspired Fashion

Most of the current fashion is revived and reused from the ’90s. During the ’90s, fashion was impeccable and continues to inspire Fashionista’s today.

This Fashionista decided to put a spin on spring fashion, with a ’90s twist. She kept it simple for the most part, wearing a plain white T-shirt but decided to pair it with the classic Adidas sweatpants. Run DMC inspired the Adidas line and the gold chain.

She went up a more delicate alley by wearing a customized gold necklace with her name. Following the white shirt and gold necklace, she stepped it up a notch and wore an army fatigue jacket. This jacket gives a little roughness while also adding some color to the look.

The shoes she decided to wear are none other than the classic Adidas Superstar. These shoes have definitely made their way back into 2017 fashion. They are now available in different colors, so there is a match for almost everyone.

As for her hair, she kept it simple and wore it in a high puff. Embracing her natural hair along with her natural beauty enhances the look even more.

This Fashionista kept it real with herself by wearing no makeup along with staying comfortable in this ’90s inspired outfit. This whole look is affordable and can customized to your liking.

Let me know what your thoughts are on this look! It’s clear that ’90s fashion is making a comeback and is the inspiration for this spring and summer.


It’s that time of the semester that we start to see everyone become stressed with midterms and finals. But don’t let that ruin your passion for looking great. This week I was rushing to get some caffeine into my system before my morning class. After I started to feel awake, I bumped into a Fashionista that had such a good outfit. I just had to stop and ask her if I could get a few pictures of her outfit as well as her accessories. Luckily she was okay with it.

Her outfit was very chill and casual. I adored the choker she had on as well as the bracelets because her accessories were on point. Her T-shirt made me nostalgic since it reminded me of the plastic bags that were given after one went grocery shopping. She paired it off with her black sneakers that were casual and went well with the whole look. I loved how the choker had a bit of red and went with her jacket. Even though none of her bracelets had red, they both sparkled and had a classic and fancy look that paired off perfectly with the outfit. This Fashionista still kept her aesthetic with red color palette throughout her accessories and outfit.

The weather in New York City has been out of control lately, as in one day it’s all blue skies and sunny then the next it’s gray with frigid winds. One can never go wrong with wearing rad accessories with an amazing outfit.


Can we all just take a moment to appreciate our jeans? They are there for us on those days when we have no idea what to wear, they go with everything, and they never go out of style. We all have our favorite pair of jeans that we hold near and dear to our hearts—but plain old jeans can get boring after awhile, until this new trend hit the streets! Patchwork jeans are the new rave when it comes to spicing up jeans.

The detail on patchwork jeans gives an outfit just a little more to make it fashion forward. The jeans look like three different pairs were ripped apart and morphed together as one. It is that uniqueness in the pants that makes a girl stand out as a Fashionista. These pants can be styled with any outfit really, from a boho look to grunge to chic; they are so versatile for any look a girl might be feeling that day.

For this look, I paired the patchwork jeans with a black tank top and white undershirt. This gave the look a modernized grunge look. By adding sneakers to this outfit, it makes it easy to walk around campus with comfort, but still have style at the same time. The pink crossbody makes the whole ensemble stand out more. It falls perfectly at the pants so when the purse catches peoples eyes next their attention will go to the pants.

This outfit is perfect for walking around campus, but at the same time makes a perfect outfit for street style. The style is all in pants and how you wear them.


As a college student, it is almost a guarantee that you will experience the greatest amount of stress and workload that life has to offer all a once. It is stressful for multiple reasons—mainly for the fact that it always feels like there is so much to do with so little time. It is this type of daily grind that causes most college students to dress quickly and comfortably. Although your first thought may be sweatpants and a T-shirt, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case if you’re trying to achieve the comfort and the style that comes naturally to you.

This look sported by this Fashionisto may seem simple at first glance, but it serves its purpose for many style lovers that are on the go. This college student caught my eye for the simplicity and practicality of his look.

Some of the pieces that really brought the look together, in my opinion, are his colored sneakers and his DIY safety pin detail on his backpack strap. His gray denim pants make the look casual and served as the balance to bring everything together while his white long sleeve T-shirt brings the look together. The pieces that serve as the true pop of style and color are his sneakers. For many looks that are similar to this kind of style, the outfit almost always has to be simple in order to really bring out the real character of the sneakers. The central theme of comfort and style is all easily achieved when these pieces are collectively put together in the right way. It is safe to say that this Fashionisto is a clear example of how effortless it is to put a great look together while still living the busy college life.

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Graphic T-shirt and Ripped Jeans

Spring is almost here, and that requires a change of the clothes that are easily reachable in your closet. I look forward to this time of year! Spring is so close; you can almost smell it.

This perfectly paired casual outfit is appropriate for the calm temperatures and the vibes of the breakthrough weather. So many trends come and go, but I am really into wearing graphic T-shirts. This Fashionista’s choice of T-shirt fits together amazingly with the ripped jeans. Ripped jeans have been in style for the past year, and I hope they never leave! I love the distressed and rigid look that adds to the overall style of her outfit.

This Fashionista also manages to add a fun and different style to her overall outfit with her moccasin inspired gym shoes. She ties the color and the vibe from the graphic shirt altogether. If I was to add anything to this outfit, I would suggest adding large hoops to compliment the shorter graphic T-shirt.

On another note, I want to focus in on this Fashionista’s shoes. I am in love with the style of a moccasin boot mixing with a comfortable gym shoe sole! The fringe of the shoe adds a compliment to the cuffing of the distressed jeans.

Keep your favorite ripped jeans in a handy place because they are what you will want to be wearing for spring’s weather! This outfit is a perfect for a day of class but also prepares you for looking stylish on campus!

STYLE GURU STYLE: Casual for Class

I always enjoy looking put together and looking like I didn’t just roll out of bed and sprint to my early morning classes. This being said, I do tend to lean on the comfier side of outfits during my school weeks.

My go-to are my Lululemon leggings because obviously black leggings go with, anything! I could easily run with this and throw on one of the large sweatshirts, that double as PJs, and be fully comfortable, but instead, I prefer to add a little style.

I chose to wear a gray hoodie, that is a little more feminine with a lower neckline and a looser fabric material. I have really been into the jacket over a hoodie look, having the hood add a little extra detail to the outfit. I paired my green bomber from Topshop for a little color. But you can do any jacket, I love this blue silk one.

I have been loving my black Adidas PureBoost, which I also wear when working out. They have a unique look and fit the “athleisure” and “effortlessly sporty” trend happening right now without being over the top. I love wearing a black sneaker and mixing it up from my white Stan Smith’s, which I tend to wear a lot!

My accessories are my favorite part of my outfit and get good use as I wear them almost every day. My bag is from AllSaints and has been one of my best purchases. It holds just about everything and is the perfect marriage of practicality and fashion. The maroon color makes a statement, but is also very versatile and can be worn with everything. Trust me, I have put that to the test. I am also wearing my favorite piece of jewelry, my name choker. It is so simple, fun, and cool and again, goes with perfectly with anything. Even just an initial necklace is able to give your outfit a little something more. I think that the name and monogram is so fun and something that I definitely want to incorporate more into my wardrobe. On the bright side, no one will ever forget my name!
