Hello Beauties!

We all know that bohemian style is in right now, especially with music festivals like Coachella becoming more and more mainstream. I personally am so happy about it because that is the kind of clothing I’ve always loved: big turquoise pendants, oversized sunglasses, and super free clothing. That’s what you learn when you’re raised by rock n’ roll/hippie parents.

For the past couple of years one side of me has been pleased with the tight fit-and-flare dresses, small 60’s heels, and Parisian scarves. Now I’m loving the opportunity to wear dresses without a bra and bust out my mom’s old Birkenstocks.

I paired this dress with a leather backpack, which I haven’t put down all summer, and some comfortable leather sandals. I also made sure to pack some good sunglasses, and I kept all jewelry very simple and tasteful as to not distract from the dress.

Summertime Means Rompertime

Hello Beauties! 

It’s here! Stores are advertising their best, and shortest, dresses, skirts, and ROMPERS! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we have made it through the deadly winter and we have been given the ultimate reward: sun, pool days, and no pants. What could be better??

I actually grabbed this beauty off a cluttered rack in Plato’s Closet for about $12. When I realized that it was made by H&M, the deal was sweetened.

The back dips with a couple of criss-crossy things, making it a little bit more interesting. Plus, it has freaking pockets. People… it has POCKETS. Anyone stuck with  carrying money, tampons, keys, and a cell phone will understand my excitement about pockets.

Back to the back (haha joke), I’d advise wearing a bralette, much like the one I bought at Aerie! I don’t think I can go on enough about how much I adore this brand, so I will leave you to test them yourselves. Buy one of their bras. Maybe even a bralette. Get their underwear for goodness sakes! You will not be disappointed.

For accessories I could not resist to grab my favorite (and only; they’re expensive) TOPSHOP necklace. Wearing anything black is the perfect excuse to bust out a bright-coral, chain neck-piece. To go with the necklace, I chose my new Ulta matte lipstick in the shade 250, which is a bright pinky-coral, and then to add a little shimmer I dabbed my favorite Tarte lipgloss in the color flush on my bottom lip.

And for the grand finale, these knit Converse high-tops. Yes, they are knit. Yes, I adore them. I call them my “sweaters for feet”. I’m thinking about doing a week of just my favorite/slightly crazy shoes, because I have a few. These just added a very classic summer vibe to the whole outfit, but they are unique enough to safely bet that no one else would have them. Plus, white shoes make your legs look tan, so I enjoy those benefits!

What A Cool Kimono! | Fashion Friday

Hello Beauties!

I decided to finally wear this kimono after buying it just for the purpose of working to pull it off, and I’m kinda pretty proud. Like, I think I did a good job.

When wearing such a statement piece like this, you need to make everything else more minimalistic, otherwise it can be a total overload. That’s why I stuck to a neutral, but flattering, black tank and a pair of high-waisted shorts. I also kept my makeup more minimalistic, and only wore a small amount of jewelry, which consisted of my favorite watch from Target ($10 guys… it’s amazing)!

The first thing that attracted me to this kimono was the pattern. I’m very much in love with bold colors and designs, and it incorporates non-Earthy tones with some more rustic shades very easily. I also really liked the slits on the sides; they just add a little bit more to the garment.

I’ve been seeing a lot of these kinds of coverups, whether they are light and thin or more weighted, the kimono is definitely making a rightful comeback.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned every Tuesday and Thursday for videos, and then every Friday for anything fashion! Until next time…

Hello Beauties!

The first fav of the past month is this Bath and Body Works Cranberry Pear Bellini candle. I have it at my desk so I can easily light it without getting up. The con to that is that there is a high fire risk. It also just makes me feel so grown up! I mean, what is more adult than a well decorated room filled with candles? Nothing! And I know what your all thinking, but get your head out go the gutter. Only candle shopping is for adults…

I’ve currently been “reading” Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. It’s a very thick and slightly confusing book about a man in WWII just trying to go home, but not being able to. It’s very well written, and I promise you that you’ll laugh from the absurdity of the whole thing. It gets weird.

 I went shopping a while back *GASP* and bought this really sweet watch from Target. It has a faux leather band and a beautiful face, all for $10! And yes, it actually works! I tend to be one of those people that needs to have one watch that goes with everything, and if it doesn’t then I don’t want it. Thankfully this watch can be so easily dressed up or down, and I keep it in my makeup bag so that I will remember it every morning.

I also picked up this faux leather backpack/purse whilst at Target! It is huge. I mean honestly, it is so very, very huge. I can’t handle how massive it is. It’s like the bag in Mary Poppins; it holds everything. All of the normal contents in my bag take up a fifth of what this can hold.

My next favorite is this very naughty tea mug! Tea mug, is that what they are called? British people, quick, what is it called?! This is my favorite mug and it makes me want to buy more snarky and slightly inappropriate mugs for my own amusement. Where did I get it you ask? Urban Outfitters, where else?

Finally, and most randomly, is the Nutribullet. This thing is amazing. I’m drinking so many smoothies, which are a great way to eat but also not have to waste energy on chewing. I’m a genius. Anyways, this extreme blender thingy is the best thing to ever happen to me, so thank you Nutribullet. You have earned a spot in my April Favorites.

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post, please comment and watch the accompanying YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE!

Fashion Friday|Pretty in Pastels

Hello Beauties!

It’s super early in the morning when I’m writing this, so it might not be my finest hour (sorry). I’m so very dedicated to bringing you guys this Fashion Friday’s outfit, which obviously has to do with Spring even though it’s starting to feel more like summer. But Spring calls for pastels, light jeans, and soft sweaters all day, every day. So this is my kinda everyday, middle weather pastel outfit!

Since it was cooler outside, I opted for a comfortable pair of American Eagle skinny jeans, which are soft as a baby’s bottom. Okay, they aren’t that soft, lets be real they are still denim. I paired them with this pastel pink blouse to dress the whole outfit up a little bit and also to add a more flattering touch to my figure! Then I finished it off with my go-to Old Navy sweater as a cover up for, you know, covering up…

Then there are these suede wedges from Modcloth. Even though they started to hurt my feet after a while, I regret nothing. At all. They have small, teardrop-shaped cutouts on the sides as well to add a little more flair! They are like nothing that I’ve ever seen or worn, meaning that you will get MAJOR compliments with these puppies!
