Sunny disposition

Good morning everyone! I hope your week wis going well so far. I’ve been

Getting back into classes lately, which can be kind of hard since it is technically summer break. Doing online classes is new to me, but I am determined to get A’s to get a higher GPA.

Trench coats

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your week was great and your weekend even better. I’ve been in class and working on school work for the week, gearing up to take finals in about 2 weeks.

It’s crazy to think about how fast my term has gone, but I’m glad I’ve focused and been able to keep my grades to a high level recently.

I have classes on Mondays and Wednesdays so after class I hangout downtown in my city. It is always fun to walk around and find amazing backgrounds for my pictures, and it encourages me to be confident in taking outfit pictures even if people are around. A couple of weeks ago my twin and I went to buy milkshakes and go to the library for a bit. It was really fun to try different places and take outfit pictures.

I wore a trench coat that I got from a family friend 2 years ago. I guess that reminds me that I’m the same size now as I was then. I wore it with a sweater I bought at goodwill, jeans from TJMAXX and my vans. I don’t usually wear this trench coat since it can be really thick and often feel heavy but it was freezing so it worked that day. I’ve always wanted to buy more thin trench coats that are camel & black colors, just classic ones I can wear all the time.

This year I’ve been trying to venture out in my personal style and wear clothes that is both comfortable but also stylish, to wear different types of pants such as cargo pants, culottes, jeans with different designs like flares or straight down instead of the usual skinny jeans I wear. I have so many clothes I don’t want to just donate it all, I want to see what I can wear with it and how I can improve my style without having to buy a large amount of clothes.

Sweet

I celebrated my friend’s 21st birthday with her last month. We were all so busy so this was the only time we could do it even thought her birthday was in January. We went to her favorite restaurant which is a really good pizzeria right next to target.

The moment my friend saw me she complimented me on my outfit, which I really appreciated. I usually never wear just tank tops but this cropped sweater felt really warm and looked even better with the black tank top. I finished it off with my go to black jeans and the vans my mom bought me and are a size to big. I went for a simple makeup look, wanting to just keep both my outfit and makeup casual.

My friend and I hung out after the dinner and of course we ended up at target. I was really excited to hangout with al my friends since school and work has kept us all extremely busy. She and I aimlessly walked around target trying to find some things for her to buy for her nephew, and I ended up in one of my favorite aisles: the ice cream one. This is nothing new, since we would often go on snack runs at random hours of the night when we lived in the same hall.

Some things just never change, and I’m happy I have someone to walk around Target at random hours.

Baker hats

This outfit I would consider a mix of both, the baker hat makes it more street style, more stylish than other outfits I’ve worn. I found this cream colored shirt in my sisters closet and was really excited to wear it. I know I can style this shirt an a variety of ways and I’m excited to found out what works best for me.

This year is gonna be full of taking risks, and I am starting with my style. I hope that people look at my style and see an outfit idea, or perhaps just something they’ve never tried before. The sky’s the limit. Let’s go and inspire those around us.

It’s a start

Happy weekend! It’s finally Saturday. This week has been different, at least academically speaking.

I took my first exam in the term on Monday and saw a large amount of improvement from my first to last attempt. That just shows that I have to work as hard as I can to pass this math class and get closer to my goal. This being my third year in college, I still find myself lacking the focus I need to get through courses. I know it’s not easy, so I have to dedicate time to making sure I get the results I want.

Balancing school, work and a social life can be hard, but I want to also take time to up my blogging. To give you all the content you deserve. Thank you all for continuously supporting me! It means so much!

Bye

One of my best friends, left to California. She’s gonna be working at Disney land for 8 months & I’m extremely excited for her! These are some pictures we took when we tried on outfits we picked out for each other!

I am so happy I met her and am still close to her despite moving for a little bit. She’s always been an amazing friend and I am so happy she is branching out and trying something that seems rather scary. Whatever happens, I am here for her.

It’s a new year

It’s here! 2018 has started and I can not be more excited. It’s funny how much can change in a year.

I’m living back home again and going to a community college. This is exactly what I need right now, and I could not be more thankful for the year I had. I got to do so many amazing things, and I hope 2018 helps me grow as a person and as a blogger.

I wanted to thank every single one of you that liked, commented or simply viewed my content. I will make sure to dedicate more time to this craft I love. Let’s see where the year takes us.

Casual

When I have a 10 am class, sometimes I feel like going to class in casual clothing. Something warm that I can be comfortable in all day. This was no exception. What was different is I tried to still be stylish, streetwear is one of my favorite types of outfits. I paired my thin black sweatpants with adidas, a forever21 top and Tommy Hilfiger hat. I finally bought this hat after seeing it at a mall last year, I love the minimal look of it. I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
