Keeping all you stylish mamas-to-be in the know, my latest piece for wellrounded ny – up now!
I don’t know about you, but the change in temperature has got me jones’ing for fresh, seasonal pieces.

Trends are touch and go, and every so often one becomes a closet staple – i.e., the off-the-shoulder silhouette. But try a fresh iteration this season with the one-shoulder version instead. If you know me well, you know that from my perspective shoulder-baring is one of the sexiest ways to dress. Subtle, unexpected, and less overt sexy, there’s something beautiful about the curves of a woman’s shoulders and collarbones. And this version of sexy is one that most of us feel comfortable (and empowered!) wearing. With that said, scroll through below for a few seasonal ideas, and don’t forget to pop over to the YSS SHOP! page for more spring goodness.

For as long as ever, I’ve dreamed of opening a boutique – a curation of the amazing items I come across, in one space to share with you. Well, it seems dreams are possible because I’m SUPER excited to announce today that I’m launching the Your Soul Style SHOP page! Through the powers of Reward Style (thank you!), I will be curating an assortment of my latest and greatest finds, with the Your Soul Style aesthetic in mind. As you shop this page, and click on items you like, an affiliate link will then bring you over to the retailer of origin and you can make make direct purchases from there. It’s that simple.
Over the last 4 years of building Your Soul Style, I’ve been asked about my personal style, and have offered clients, friends & family, and social followers guidance on theirs. Remember this dress you asked about on instagram? Well, it’s available right here! This YSS shop allows me to connect with even more of you, and I couldn’t be more psyched about it. A bit about the inspiration behind the ‘brand': the overarching direction will be for the classic, laid back, edgy, bohemian and urban sensibility. Silhouettes will be free spirited, forgiving, and most will work on different body types for the changing phases of your life. Prices will range from high to low, and I’ll be paying close attention to featuring as many socially responsible and sustainable brands as possible. The shop will be continuously updated based on trend, end-use, and seasonality, and I’ll be sending out alerts of daily arrivals or if I’m making edits for a specific item.
I’m really really excited about this venture (can you tell?), and hoping you are too. As always, I welcome any/all feedback. This space is for you more than anything else so if you’re looking for a specific item, or if you have questions about whether one in the shop will work for you, such as “what’s the best way to style this piece?”, “what bra should i wear with this dress?”, “is this a good color for me?”, or “does the fit work for bigger boobs?”, please don’t hesitate to shoot me a note @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m beyond happy to give you the styling direction you may need before making a purchase.
SO, without further ado, head on over to the SHOP page, where I’ve kicked things off with beautiful transitional pieces for Spring/Summer. Lots of soft, easy dresses and jumpsuits. Let me know what you think. I can’t wait to hear from you!
Please enjoy this space as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it. Discovering style from the inside out is, was and always will be what it’s all about, and I’ll do anything in my power to support you on that journey.
Before Vida came into my life, there was a Weekly Finds post in this space, offering ideas on what to wear for either a specific season, color story, or item, etc. While I’m not sure if this theme can remain a weekly thing, I will definitely offer some ideas more consistently.
That said, it’s officially Spring, and while the weather here in NYC is still cold (and today rainy!), warmer days are in our future, hopefully sooner than later. Women typically find these transitions hard to get dressed in because we are challenged by things like layers, colors, and wondering when it’s appropriate to trade out winter-wear items like boots and sweaters. But it’s not all so cut and dry. There’s a lot of mixing of items to create a blend of seasonal appropriateness. Here’s an example (with shopping links) on how to wear this typically warm-weather style Mes Demoiselles dress in the cooler transitional days and later when things heat up…
SHOP IT: 1. Mes Demoiselles Dress, $165 // 2. Illesteva Sunnies, $177 // 3. Janessa Leone Hat, $205 // 4. Dannijo Choker, $245 // 5. Madewell Moto Jacket, $498 6. Bite Beauty, Cayenne Bright Red, $26 // 7. Cuyana Small Carryall Tote, $185 // 8. Toga Pulla Cowboy Boots, $498
and for later…
