A simple button up

Hello everyone! Summer is almost coming to a close and I wanted to share with you an outfit I am really excited about.

I have always loved menswear inspired outfits. Guys always seem to be so put together, even in such simple outfits. I haven’t had a button up I’ve ever been really in love with.. until now.

I was rummaging through a friends closet when I found this shirt, with a tag and all. It was a great find from Nordstrom’s that I was excited to give a feminine twist. I wore it with shorts and my all white adidas, which most of you know how rarely I wear. I loved the subtle stripes, especially with the bolder accessories I chose to wear.

My gold hoop earrings and tiny sunglasses are my staple pieces at the moment, and I would not have it any other way. The accessories worn always complete an outfit, and I love how even with them my outfit was still very laid back.

When my friend and I were out to lunch we walked around to find locations to take my outfit pictures at and I was pleasantly surprised with how well she took them. It was really hot while we took the pictures and I ended up taking a couple more before we tried to find an air conditioned room.

Also, if you’re gonna buy a $3 cupcake, dont be like me and take 2 bites before throwing it away.

Have a great day and see you next time.

Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome back to my blog. Today I am talking about the last day of my summer term. Having taken a final, I was done with classes around 2 pm.

My friend and I were both free so we decided to go out for lunch. The restaurant we went to was more popular for hangover food than anything else. The food I bought was a veggie burger, which was not as tasty as I would have liked. The milkshakes we bought were amazing, but they were so big it was hard to finish them.

When ever I go downtown (which is frequently) I always go to a book store, “The Book Bin” since I was little. I can read so many books, especially a variety of history books.

When I got ready, I wanted to wear shorts. These are longer than normal shorts, but are my favorite. The ones I usually wear are really tight, so I tend to stick with ones that are a bit longer, and honestly they look better than regular length ones. The red shirt is one of my favorites from adidas, there streetwear is so simple and comfortable, yet very stylish. With my go to accessories, the outfit become more street stylish, more feminine with earrings and sunglasses.

Thank you for reading, see you tomorrow for my last post of the week.

Celebrating

Happy Wednesday everyone, and welcome to my third day of straight blogging. Doing this has been kind of difficult, especially since I don’t come up with topics very easily.

I want to talk about these photos. These were taken after I went to my old roommates graduation. She was graduating with a bachelor of psychology, and I am so proud of her. She is such a strong, beautiful, independent, smart woman that has achieved so much. Being there to support her was such an amazing feeling, even if we didn’t see her in her cap and gown because of the large amount of people attending.

Luckily we were able to see her at her party, finally meeting her family and celebrating all her accomplishments.

Summer grunge

Hello everyone! This is my second blog post this week, an attempt at posting every day for a week to see how much I can achieve in a week. The idea of doing this was a tweet by an amazing blogger, Ellie. I have so many different outfits I need to blog about, and this week I will be sharing as many as I can.

This outfit includes items I use a lot, and some I found in my closet as I was cleaning it out this past week. The sunglasses and long denim cardigan are my go to when I wanna cover up a bit.

When it comes to my style, I always go for something that makes me comfortable, but also confident about my body and loving every part of me. These black shorts are some of my favorite, even thought when I ordered them online I didn’t realize that they were very high waisted in the back, leaving little to the imagination. This top is one I love, it has a tie in the back of it, making it a really beautiful halter top. What I like about this top is that it is not cropped, it can be tucked in to jeans or shirts.

This style is alluding to my edgier side, I tend to stick to black sometimes, and using a blue (usually denim) to have one piece of my outfit stand out. Even my hair is jet black, so that just adds to the all black vibes I go for sometimes.

Let me know what you think of my outfit, and if you’ve ever thought of posting daily. IMG_0883

Back to the start

These pictures where taken at my old university, the one I transferred out from. I hadn’t been back since I left last year, leaving my friends behind to try and sort out what exactly I wanted to study.

Being there was a sense of deja vu, remembering everything that happened in the last two years and how hard it was to walk away.

I saw no point in staying, my credits weren’t what they needed to be, so I left to try and salvage some time. My best friend from fourth grade goes here, so I thought I was going to lose a friend, but luckily we are just as close as ever.

Coming back I wore an outfit I felt was a bit out of my comfort zone, Something I don’t think I would have worn before, the bandana around my neck, the small sunglasses and the hoop earrings all gave me a sense of confidence.

When o went back I realized that the right choices aren’t always the easiest.

P.s: thank you for 300 followers on my blog and 1,000 on twitter! It means so much to know o have such amazing support from all of you.

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.
