Fashion // Styling An Embroidered Blouse for Summer

Embroidery was a HUGE trend this year and last, and it’s a trend I happen to love, and will probably continue to wear for years to come. I’m an enthusiastic floral print fan, and this year I even DIY’d my own pair of embroidered jeans!

I bought this gorgeous embroidered blouse and wanted to find a funky way to style it that wasn’t simply wearing it over black pants (which is also a great look, btw). I decided to for a bit of a pinup look with denim shorts and strappy black heels! Hope you like this look.Read More »

New Look // A Girly Summer Outfit (With Bunnies!) ft. GlassesUSA

Hi all! Since it’s finally summer and all, I thought I’d share a fun outfit with you today, featuring cute prints and silhouettes, and new sunglasses from GlassesUSA. I’ve worked with them before–they’ve sent me a pair of prescription glasses that made me actually like wearing glasses again after not owning a pair for like seven years, and their sunglasses are pretty awesome, too. The outfit I have to share today is definitely cutesy–hope you like it!

New Look // Trendy Style with Embroidery + Bell Sleeves

Hey all! This week I have a fun outfit to share combining two major trends this year, and two of my favorite ones possibly ever: embroidery and bell sleeves! It’s definitely an eye-catching combination, but I think it’s super fun to style these two very bold trends in one look, and this is an outfit I’ve worn a few times, and one I always feel pretty and confident wearing! I’m pretty obsessed with embroidery lately, ain’t gonna lie. Anything floral print pretty much has my heart. <3

Hi all and happy Friday! It’s been a very long week for me; it was the first full week of work in about two weeks, so it has been a struggle. As always, the bright point is spring! Here’s an outfit I put together with one of my new favorite spring/summer dresses, that looks like a picnic table! Of course, you need a wicker bag for a picnic…hope you like this look! 😉

Fashion // How to style colored tights in winter

For years, one of my favorite styles has been colored tights. I used to wear really bright ones very oddly, before I knew how to style colored tights right to make them look effortless and chic. I remember wearing bright blue and purple tights with fleur de lis designs on them when I was in college and thinking I was the height of fashionable! I still have those tights, but I’ve learned better ways to rock them.

How to wear // Fall & winter fashion trends!

Winter is coming…and with it comes a need to completely revamp a wardrobe. I personally love this time of year because I love the cold and being cozy with books and blankets and hot chocolate, but winter isn’t the easiest to dress for. Luckily, I’ve been loving this year’s fall & winter fashion trends, and now I’m looking forward to colder weather even more!

Major winter fashion trends for 2016 are right up my alley: Renaissance-inspired clothes is one, and embroidery is the other. Both are so my style—I love floral prints, girly silhouettes, and anything old fashioned or lacy. But another major winter fashion trend is menswear-inspired clothes for women, which is something that’s just a little bit out of my comfort zone. So what I decided to do was put together some fashion inspiration and shopping guides for this winter’s biggest trends, and see if it inspires me (and you) to branch out into sartorial fun this season!

This is so my personality. I love girly dresses, bell sleeves, intricate patterns and textures, and looking like I’ve just stepped out of a Renaissance Faire. Here are some looks I’ve loved and some things I’d love to wear!

Fashion // Wearing winter white in fall and winter

Hey all! Winter is fast approaching, and with it comes Christmas! I know that people get testy and stressed about Christmas, but personally, I absolutely love this time of year. I love the holiday spirit and the music, the emphasis on family and togetherness, and I love how happy I get! In other news, Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and I’m also focusing on that. Because I tend to dress seasonally (if you haven’t noticed by now!), most of what I wear will reflect the time of year, and for fall that’s definitely jewel tones like deep reds, oranges, greens, and yellows. This outfit, however, is one that I put together thinking about winter ahead.

Fashion // How to wear floral print for fall, ft. floral jeans

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you’ll know how much I love floral print. I love it on bags, clothes, jackets, notebooks, socks, shoes, everything. So when I was looking through my closet for gems I could reuse and restyle, I came across these floral jeans I bought at Urban Outfitters a good five years ago.

They don’t fit me as well as they used to (thank you taco addiction), but I still love them. I love the black denim, the big splotches of flowers, and I especially love the colors: deep reds, mustards, and some touches of purple—perfect for this time of year. I decided to restyle these floral jeans and show you how to wear these for fall. Hope you like this look!

Fashion ft. vintage-style shorts by Simple Retro

I’m a huge fan of anything that is vintage or that looks vintage, so I immediately fell in love with these polka dot, vintage-style shorts from Simple Retro. Since they’re A-line and high waisted, they look and feel more like a skirt, but they’re waaaay more comfortable! I styled these awesome vintage-style shorts with a simple white top and then added some simple accents in gold and black.

Also wearing: my new Kylie Cosmetics lip kit in Leo! It’s no secret that I loooove these colors and formulas, and this shade, a deep burgundy, is way out of my comfort zone. But when I tried it on I absolutely loved it. Another reason I love fashion and beauty is the random ways that changing up your style or look makes you feel more confident! Hope you like this look…

Fashion // And you’re very free

Hello all! Back with an outfit that’s a little out of my comfort zone today, inspired by the 90s trends that are currently coming back like crazy. I wore this outfit to a concert in the city recently. I borrowed this soft shirt dress from my sister, and paired it with some accessories that remind me of Kylie Jenner doing throwback 90s trends!
