Wedding outfit

Hello everyone!

I went to a wedding a few weeks back,  I was invited by a coworker of mine. This is the first time I’ve been to a wedding in a while. It was interesting to go without my family, since we usually go to these sort of events together.

It was a Samoan wedding, which I have never been to. I noticed there was a lot of people there, and they were traditional Samoan attire. The music and dancing was very interesting, and I loved seeing my coworkers being so in tune with their culture. I felt like a fish out of water, but having my friend with me really helped me feel less overwhelmed about the whole situation.

When I think of weddings, I think of what to wear, and what gift to get the couple. This seemed like the last thing on anyone’s mind at the wedding, which was refreshing. They were focused on being in the moment, and spending time with each other.

That was a great reminder of how important family can be, and friends as well that have your back when you most need someone.

Its beanie season

Hello everyone! It has been some time since I uploaded a blog post. Winter term was a crazy three months, but I am back with another outfit post.

I was shopping with my friend, and whenever we go to the mall I always shop at Zumiez. I ended up buying this adidas beanie as well as two different shirts. I was excited to make those purchases since I always try clothes on but never end up buying the clothes I tried on.

Being the blogger that I am, my friend took pictures of me after buying the items from Zumiez. I was excited to see how it would look, especially since I dont usually wear slouchy beanies.

This shopping trip was a break from my usual routine, which was going to class and working at the end of the week. Lately I’ve been making sure to give myself time to relax and hangout with friends.

My classes were overwhelming at times, but I was able to get through them. I wrote multiple papers and had speeches to give, which really pushed me to get as many points as I could since those aren’t my strongest qualities about being a student.

I ended up getting a passing grade in my biology class after retaking it this term, which is all I could ask for.

Thank you for reading this post, see you on the next one.

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

Basic outfits

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are well and had an amazing weekend!

Today’s post is talking about my style. I am a self proclaimed fashion blogger, and have thought about how I can talk about my personal style, but also make it interesting to you all. I wanted to share an outfit that I feel comfortable in, but one that is very simple.

Every single person has their personal style, and I hope that I can give you even a simple idea of what that means to me and how I hope you can start to figure out what you like to wear.

This outfit is very basic, it consists of a cropped shirt, shorts and sneakers. These are my favorite pair of shoes, classic all white adidas that I was too scared to wear. I thought they would always get dirty, but I did not see the point of having shoes in their boxes and only wearing them twice a year. I love wearing white shoes, it elevated the outfit into something more confident, it was the main focus of the outfit. I suggest wearing an outfit with an accessory or piece of clothing that pops, something unexpected that allows you to try something different when wearing an outfit. That may be a larger earring than you would usually have, a belt, a bright sweater or skirt over an outfit consisting of white/blue/gray and maybe even black.

I wore the longline thin cardigan I use constantly. I liked how it looked when it was on, and when it was dangling from my shoulders a bit. I love wearing sweatshirts and jackets off the shoulders or around my arms, it makes the outfits more laid back, and not feel as suffocated when I wear them for long periods of time.

I realized that when I take outfit pictures I never know what to do with my hands, so I made sure that I was holding something, which ended up being a watering can I found in my backyard, that we haven’t used in sometime. I liked that my hands were busy, but I did not realize how big the watering can was, and it ended up covering my shorts.

Whatever style you go for, make sure you are comfortable. Whether it is a skirt, a dress or a cropped top and jeans, wear it with confidence.

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.

Reflection

Fashion is about self expression. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved clothes. How different people can wear a single piece of clothing and make it so unique. I have always dressed comfortably, sometimes too much so. I’ve worn sweatpants and hoodies to class on multiple occasions, never seeing the point of dressing up. I felt beautiful then, and I feel beautiful now.

Fashion is never ending, and I am so happy to see the way people go about their style. Some are very daring and creative, while others opt for simple outfits that are still so amazing. Whatever your style is, thank you for inspiring me. You all are so creative and give me so many ideas when it comes to style.

A trend I have been noticing a lot recently is thin sunglasses. I wasn’t a big fan of them at first, but as I saw celebrities wearing them in different ways, I started to see the appeal of them. I went to an antique shop with a friend and saw so many of these sunglasses, which I found so amazing. These were from years ago, and here we are n 2018 wearing them once again. Fashion truly does surpass time.

Trying new things

Good morning everyone! Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday! Here is my latest outfit posts wearing one of my favorite shirts.When I bought this shirt I was kind of nervous, it looked so small and it felt risqué when I tried it on. I wanted to push my comfort levels a bit with this purchase, and I did. I definitely felt really feminine when I wore it, I love how it fits and how I automatically feel more confident wearing it. I wore high wasted jeans and Birkenstocks with them, to keep it more casual.

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.
