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

Always striving

Hi everyone! Happy April! I can’t believe it is already April! It’s gonna be an amazing month, since today is the first day of my new term!

It has been quite interesting this year, I’ve tried time and time again to reach my goals and I am reminded that rewards do not come easy, so I have to truly realize how much I want something and go after it.

This college degree has been kicking my butt since 2015, but I will not give up. All the nights filled with emotions will lead me to a better future, even if it takes longer than 4 years. I know some may think I am wasting my time, but it will be worth it when I am doing what I love for the rest of my life. As I move forward in my education, I’ve been faced with reevaluating what exactly that is.

Do I love history or fashion more? The safe option is history, where I can work in museums to help design them and appropriately try and represent different cultures from around the world. I already know so much history, it’s engraved in my mind from high school. It gives me such an amazing feeling to know I am learning about those before me and what their lives were like.

Fashion is my one true love. Since I discovered weworewhat I loved the idea of working in fashion, especially if that meant I could share my personal style and make a living that way. Fast forward 5 years after making this blog, and I am no where close to that goal, but here I am, still thinking about the day I can finally write a sponsored post. I understand that might never happen, so I focus on something that is a sure thing, such as a history degree.

Well , thank you for reading my thoughts. Let me know any suggestions you may have on my career goals.

Now on to my outfit. I’ve had midterms to study for and haven’t been able to write the posts I’ve wanted to. Yesterday I had a paper due and midterm to take but I made some time to take pictures of the outfit I wore.

I love this maroon shirt from target that I don’t wear very often since I often go for sweatshirts since Oregon is always freezing!!! As you guys may have seen, I wear these white sneakers all the time! I have other pairs but these are so classic they go with so many different outfits!

I remebered I had this handkerchief and wanted to use it as an accessory. What do you think of it? Is it something you’d try? Also had to stick to my black and white theme here with my first ever bomber from forever21!

Thanks for the love, have a good everyone x

Not a blue denim jacket

Hello, its friday! I don’t have any classes today so I spent my morning doing homework and joining blogger chats on twitter. I had some things to do on campus and this is my outfit for the day.

This denim jacket is from loft that I haven’t worn often, but I wore it today with a baseball shirt, skinny jeans and fringe booties.

I did my makeup, which you can see in these mirror pictures I took. I don’t have a large selection of makeup, so it is fairly simple since I bought makeup for the first time a few months ago. I love using highlighter, and I’m getting better at applying it but it’s not as bright as I wish it to be. There is so many different makeup options and it can be a bit overwhelming, but I’m excited to see how I can delve into the world of makeup.

I am also very excited because makeup is something that makes me feel good, especially when it comes to confidence. Confidence is key in any situation, and that is why I wear what I want, regardless of any one saying otherwise.

Adventures

Freshman year came and went. This was a day full of beauty, funny how it seems so long ago yet it was earlier in the year. I learned a lot that day. Life is not gonna wait for me, I have to keep on working hard because nothing will simply be given to me. I have to embrace change, not hide from it. This was one of my favorite days in my life, and I will cherish the opportunity to connect with nature. Have a good weekend guys, and keep on working hard.

That one look

That one look

Hello! I have recently obtained some fabulous new additions to my wardrobe. Including these amazing new combat boots by the one and only, Mr. Steve Madden! The Fleece Twill Jacket is from Sound and Matter. This look is perfect for the new year. It gives an edge, especially with the rocker boots and large camo-like jacket.
