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!

Shirt: Forever 21

My #OOTD Friday!

Hello My Beauties!

Guess what!? It’s Friday!!!!

Everyone loves Fridays, so I wanted to make it better by making it OOTD Fridays on this blog! I hope that you enjoy my favorite outfit for this week, I’ve been LIVING for comfortable clothes! Also, please excuse my headless lady-friend in the background, she is just doing what she does.

The Sweater: First off, I’m in LOVE with this sweater. In fact, I’m wearing it right now! Just kidding, but I wish I was. This evergreen Claiborne originally belonged to my dad when he was in college, but then my mom kinda stole it from him when they were dating, and now I’ve taken to this little treasure! I’ve been wearing it with basically anything, because it can be worn with basically anything! I’ve also found big, slouchy sweaters to be great for spring days and summer nights.

The Shirt: I got this shirt from American Eagle and let me tell you, it is the softest piece of clothing I’ve ever felt in my whole life. What attracted me to it was the beautiful plume with the sky-blue stripes in contrast. Then I tried it on and I refused to leave the store without it. Even though AE is a little bit on the higher end for my budget, they really know what they’re doing when it comes to clothing.

The Pants: These pants were actually from Pitaya,which is a small boutique in my hometown. They were about $50 (the most expensive pair of pants I’ve owned), but they are totally worth it! Not only have they lasted for a couple of years, they are also really stretchy and the denim is really soft and comfortable to be in. I’d say that they feel like the most authentic-looking pair of jeggings without actually being jeggings… if that makes sense.

The Scarf: I got this scarf from H&M back when I was in New York City for the summer. I didn’t have a lot of simple scarves back then, and I thought it would be very easy to pair with a lot of different outfits. It’s also very lightweight, so it’s very easy to move in and is the perfect scarf for warm days.

The Shoes: I found these bad boys at Aldo’s in the mall, and I’ve been attached to them ever since. At the time I had been looking for a nice pair of riding boots, but I never seemed to find any that were my style. Then, on a discount no less, these shoes were just sitting there, awaiting my purchase of them. They are lace-up, which I really like, but they still have the elastic sides that you would see on a riding shoe. They are my little slice of shoe heaven!

What I Pack for College Visits!

Hello My Beauties!

DSC_0001

Much like the 2008 Disney movie College Road Trip starring Raven Symoné, I’m going to visit colleges all this week! Granted they are all in the generally in the same area. It’s just that that area is 11 hours away. I’m going to die.

For this week’s video I decided to film how I packed and then I sped it up because it kinda took a while. Anyways it was a lot of fun to film and I’m pretty pleased with the finished product! (And my lipstick is on point).

Look out for my Monthly Interview this Wednesday as well as a longer, and more dedicated, post this Saturday!

Red, Red, Red

This week we explore this wonderful and stunning color! When wearing red be sure to tone down everything else. You don’t want to look too crazy colorful! Yet I am always a fan for a couple of colored pieces with some red lipstick. If you can pull it off, then do it! That’s what fashion’s about, after all. You express yourself through your clothing. If it’s not “you” and you don’t feel comfortable in it, then it’s not true “fashion”. Always wear what you love and don’t worry about what others might think, if it’s you then you shouldn’t feel self conscious!

Anyways, I love my red heels! They are super comfortable and sassy, perfect for a “feeling pretty” day! Wear them with a dress, like in the photo, and you’ll get compliments from your peers! But don’t limit yourself to dresses, mini skirts and skinny jeans are also fun options!
