Athleisure

Hello, and welcome to another post. I have not been as consistent with posting as the summer draws to a close, making sure I savor every last second before classes start in a couple of hours.

I wanted to share this outfit, something that encompasses my summer style. On Instagram and tumblr I’ve seen crop tops and shorts, tube tops and summer dresses, which are all beautiful pieces of clothing. I wear shorts and dresses, but not many crop tops. Whenever I want to dress lazy but still look cute, this is my go to outfit. Adidas sweatpants with vans and a tank top.

My twin, mom and I were spending our morning walking downtown, spending time together before I had to work in the evening. I wanted something that I could move around with, but also something that made me feel.. well sexy. Tying a shirt like this always brings me more confidence, and the sunglasses and bag makes me feel more put together than I thought I was in that moment.

Well with this look, I bide summer goodbye, bring on fall fashion x IMG_8505IMG_8520IMG_8509

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. I am excited to talk about this outfit, especially because it is the first item of clothing I’ve ever been given to from my older sister. She went shopping and the shirt was too small so she gave it to me. I am so glad she did because it made me reevaluate how I looked at my sense of style.

This shirt is far more risqué than what I am used to wearing. This shirt is meant to be worn without a bra, which is already a step away from what I usually wear. The back is open, with a tie on both the top and bottom. Nonetheless, I love the way they shirt has the ruffles below the sheer lace, it acts as a divider between sheer and dark fabric. The flower details are my favorite, they make the shirt so much more feminine. The straps are rather long at the end of the sleeves, but they are a nice addition.

I wore this shirt with shorts and vans, since I wanted this to be the focal point. I always tend to figure out one piece to wear and create my outfit around that, most of the time it is the shirt. I wear a shirt I like, and I figure out what would look stylish in terms of shoes and jeans.

With this outfit, It was soooo hot out that I knew I had to wear shorts no matter what. These are shorts I dont usually wear, so I chose these. The vans always make my outfits feel more casual, even with such a top like this. I like that there was something very casual such as the shoes, but also something very intricate by wearing the shirt. I used an ascot as a hair tie, and wore my go to tiny sunglasses to make this outfit cooler. When in doubt, wear tiny sunglasses.

 

Let me know what you think of this outfit, and if you like my shirt from free people. Have a great day

Coffee Shop Daze

Hello! Welcome to another blog post. I honestly never know how to start these, introductions are always the hardest parts in anything I do.

This post is one I am very excited about, given the location. As time goes on and I think about where I want my blog to be, I realize that the quality of my content has to develop and grow. Taking pictures of my outfits in my backyard is something I want to stray away from. I am taking advantage of the beautiful scenery in my city, finding all the treasures that allow me to show of both my city and the outfits I love so much.

These pictures were taken by one of my oldest friends, Vivian. Whenever we hangout she asks if I want to take outfit pictures, and would I really be a blogger if I declined? We hadn’t talked in a while since school kept us so busy, so we had a great excuse to hangout and see what we’ve been up to over the last couple of months.

We went to a coffee shop in the downtown part of our city, one I had only been twice before. I loved the aesthetic of the place. It is full of bookshelves, plants and wooden furniture. They use old books when giving receipts, and their bar is rather impressive. The bottles reach the ceiling in an intricate way of assortment that lines the middle of the building.

Neither of us are really fans of coffee, so we tried tome sweet iced teas. The moment we got our drinks, we took our phones out of our pockets and started to take pictures. I used the flash, she grabbed a book from behind me and we started to create as many different combinations of flat lays.

She took my picture while we waited for our tacos, and at first I felt awkward taking pictures in a place full of people, but I liked my outfit and wanted to share it with you all. When people walked in and out they would make eye contact and I would feel somewhat conceited, but I carried on.

I felt good, and I wanted to embrace that feeling. I kept moving to every different chair around us, trying to get the best angles and great lighting. Every picture was so different, it captured both my outfit as well as the attempt at doing my makeup. I always stick to highlighter, mascara and lipstick. I love using highlighter because I like the glow it gives my face in pictures, especially with natural lighting.

Let me know what you think of this outfit and if you like the location. Have a great day x

Underground

Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to start this post by saying thank you!

Thank you for liking my posts, following me on my social media accounts and giving me so many compliments. Its been a long time since I felt so much support for my blog, and it means so much. Knowing that you all enjoy my content is such an amazing feeling, and it makes me feel so inspired to keep on growing my blog to its full potential.

This blog post is inspired by something my sister said: “you’re really into underground” which refers to music. I was gushing about how excited I am to finally go to see one of my favorite bands in concert, Twenty One Pilots. I am actually wearing one of their shirts as I type this. I discovered their music when I was in high school, in 2014. 

I have loved their music since the beginning, when they would get maybe 200,000 views on their videos, back when their songs were far from being on movie soundtracks or radio stations.  When the only albums they had were their self titled debut, and Vessel. It is so amazing to know how a group can succeed so quickly, from unknowns to winning grammys.

They are approaching their third album, and when I listen to their albums I feel a sense of nostalgia, an image of me studying as a senior coming back to my head. I would send my friends their songs. hoping they would listen to the music and agree with me that their music was so unique, so inspirational and poignant, especially when we were teenagers. Tyler and Josh spoke of real life issues, of mental health and how life is not always perfect, their are issues that need to be addressed, and they continue to address them throughout their music, always growing and learning more about life.

There is another artist that I discovered early one, a young teenage girl by the name of Billie Ellish. Her music was infectious, constantly in head, even thought she had only released two songs. I found her music on youtube, listening to different playlists and landing on the song, “She’s broken” which is still one of my favorites from her.

Let me know if you have loved bands before they got mainstream, or any bands you’d like me to listen to.

Hey guys! A couple of weeks ago I went to the zoo with my roommate Liz. She loves going so I decided to join her, and I’m glad I did. Going reminded me of how beautiful the world us, and I couldn’t help but take pictures while there. 

The valum avory was my favorite part, a building full of birds. It was so green and full of life, I couldn’t help but stare in amazement. 

Being an Oregonian, nature is important to me & luckily the sun helped out throughout the day. The whole day was so amazing, and I’m so happy I went.
