Ivy Park: Get Active with Beyonce's New Clothing Line


I guess it's time to get flawless in the gym! There's a lot of news with Beyonce as of late... from the release of her new album (reportedly coming out on April Fools Day) to her new tour starting soon, her fans should be struggling to contain themselves with all the good news. On top of all of that, today Beyonce announced a brand new clothing line called Ivy Park, an activewear and athleisure brand co-founded by Beyonce, with her fierceness all over it. Here are the first few promo photos from the site:

Festival Style 2016


As the weather breaks, it's time to start thinking about festival style, especially with Coachella being around the corner. Whether it's a spring or summer festival you have been planning to attend, boho chic and tribal inspired styles are always popular. Some of the more well known festivals like Coachella (April), Lollapalooza (July), Bonnarroo (August), Afropunk (June & August), and Burning Man (August) will bring out tons of fashionable people, so start thinking about the items you may need.

Fringe, rompers, cutoff shorts, floral print, tunics, lace dresses, vests and kimonos will be your go-tos!

Rhymes & Fresh: Clothing Lines Owned by Hip Hop Artists


Fashion has always been a crucial part in hip hop culture whether it be from shouting out a brand in a song, rocking a branded item in their videos, or even as far as owning a fashion house of their own. Artists such as Jay-Z, 50 Cent, and Diddy have had some of the most successful lines by rappers to date! I wanted to shed light on artists who you may not have known had lines or are lesser known than their mainstream counterparts as well as a few brands that are owned by some of the biggest artists of today!

Food Picks: Nada Restaurant


I got the chance to try out a new restaurant in Indianapolis called Nada, themed as modern Mexican food with electric design. They have 2 other locations in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, but this is their first Indiana location. I heard a few good reviews from friends, so I thought it would be a great idea to try the place. Also I had been on the hunt for a new favorite Mexican restaurant.


Upon walking in, I noticed they stick to the electric theme design with a colorful yet modern interior design, which is refreshing to see in a Mexican restaurant. The seating, drapes, lighting and layout were all beautifully designed, right down to the table setting.


One look at the menu and I knew I was in for a treat with items like Queso Gringo, an assortment of tacos (with amazing ingredients like battered hake, salmon, short rib, pork belly and more), farro & sweet potatoes and churros on the menu.

We started with drinks, opting for sangria and their Nada lemonade (spiked with Avion tequila). Both were delicious!


For an appetizer, we started light with chips and salsa. They have a trio of salsas available for only $5, but I went with just the jalepeno salsa verde sauce this time, which was very good with the fresh cooked chips.

Baja Fish Tacos

Tinga Quesadilla

They encourage food sharing, so to mix it up we tried both the "Baja" fish tacos and Tinga Quesadilla - and fell in love with both. The freshness of the battered hake fish with the guacamole, lime cabbage and pico de gallo was amazingly delicious. The Tinga Quesadilla had just the right combination of meats, cheese and spice (chicken, chorizo, ancho chile, pico de gallo, chihuahua cheese and crema drizzled on top). I could have eaten another one!

Churros

To finish it off we tried the Churros for dessert, and they didn't last long on the plate!

Overall I LOVED this place and can't wait to come back and try more items on the menu, including their brunch. This is definitely a new favorite! They put a twist on Mexican cuisine and incorporate an inviting visual space. Hopefully they expand and get more locations all over the country. If you are ever in Indy, Columbus or Cincinnati, try Nada!

Baby Bump Style: Chrissy Tiegen


Chrissy Tiegen and husband John Legend have their first baby on the way, and we can't keep our eyes off Chrissy! Pregnancy looks amazing on her! She has been spotted out and about looking gorgeous every time, and we are loving her pregnancy style. Who says you can't be fab while sporting a bun in the oven? She is definitely inspiration for those with a little one on the way, and even those of us who aren't - anyone can incorporate her style.

I loved some of her recent looks from the past week, so lets take revisit and find out how to recreate the looks:

Casual Chic Weekend Style




First up is a neutral look from Saturday. I love the tan coat, white sheer crop top and shredded light blue boyfriend jeans with the nude sandals and chain strap bag. Her hair is amazing as well. I would definitely wear this look in the spring!

She wore this Chloe Drew Mini leather and suede cross-body bag:

Weekend Dinner Style



The second look also comes from this past weekend while out to dinner. She wore a black coat over a simple white top with acid wash distressed jeans, black pointy toe pumps, a polka dot neck scarf and black chain shoulder bag. Very simple look but the addition of the scarf and pumps give it some extra flair. Get the look below:


Elegant Lunch Look




Lastly is a look from Monday. Chrissy and John were spotted coming from lunch. I love this elegant look: a cream dress with striped coat, nude sandals and a tan bag. Chrissy's looks have been mostly neutral paired with long coats and it works!

Chrissy wore this Stervis Belted Striped Jacquard Coat by The Row, nearly $3,000:

Keep doing what you're doing Chrissy!

Interview with Lord Brian James


What's good y'all this is Adrian, owner of the street wear brand Janus Clothiers, and I will be contributing some posts from a man's perspective from time to time, so feel free to email us anything you would like to see! A few weeks ago, Whitney W and I got the chance to attend a book release party for Lord Brian James' first book, The Man Who Didn't Stop Running, available on Amazon. We were able to sit down with the author/media personality/actor and learn more about his new book, what he has learned during the process, his background, and more!

Requested Look: Casual Cute in Neutrals


We love requested looks! Make sure you send yours in here! Get WHIT It reader Krystal wanted this look she saw on instagram:

Spring Your Wardrobe Forward for 2016


It’s almost time to spring our clocks forward which means its almost time to spring our wardrobe forward too! With one of the best seasons arriving next weekend and bringing the amazing weather with it… it's a good time to do some spring closet cleaning and grab the latest 2016 spring trends.

If you are like me, you tend to buy a lot of clothing over the year and then when the next season comes around, you realize that you haven’t even worn some of the stuff you purchased. A good way to get rid of items you may not wear or need and to grab some extra cash is selling the items on buy/sell apps. This is great for your spring closet cleaning.
