Sights Seen

As I end finals for spring term, I begin to realize how much I miss being on vacation in New Orleans. For my 21st birthday I spent time in NOLA, spending time in museums and cafes with amazing food.

Going to a new place reminded me of how beautiful different parts of the country are. There was so many different places that were full of amazing food, art and culture. I had never seen so many bright buldings, I loved how varied the scenery was.

I always travel to the same places with my family: California and Mexico. This was the first time I had ever flown on an airplane, and I love the feeling of it. Being on an airplane gave me time to relax, and just think about all the fun I would be having in a new place.

We had a beautiful air bnb that we rented, and we spent time cooking at night to try and save money once we realized all that we had spent at restaurants. Being away from home was exciting, everything was new and so interesting.

One of the pictures below is of beignets, which are infamous in New Orleans. We went to Café Du Monde on several occasions, including the day my twin and I turned 21.

My own style

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was great and yours a lot of fun. I’ve been working, and watching movies now that I have the time to since I’m on spring break.

A couple of days before the term ended, my friend Vivian and I went on a mission to help me get out of my comfort zone. It wasn’t as easy as I thought, but I tried. Cute boys make me nervous, so I wasn’t able to make a move, but hey, the food was good. After we ate for the sole purpose of getting the waiter’s attention, we went to try on clothes we always wanted to try.

Luckily, I found some pants I’ve seen pictures of and have always wanted to try on. These were gray, which I never thought of when it came to pants like these, but I liked how they looked with the belt. The shirt I was wearing in the pictures is from free people, that my older sister bought and sold to me since she no longer wanted it.

This outfit reminds me of an outfit I would wear when I want to wear something that is out of my comfort zone in terms of the clothing I wear since this isn’t just my regular jeans and a top. I wore the vans, which made the outfit more authentic to my style.

It was interesting when I was taking these pictures because I realized I was wearing fuzzy socks my once roommate gave me and I did not realize that until o was taking the pictures, but it reminds me of how comfort is always important, and I wear wacky stuff every so often.

Thank you so much for reading this post and have a great week!

What a term

Hi everyone! Hope your Monday is going great and you’re having fun so far this week. I haven’t posted in about a week since I just had a final about an hour ago.

This weekend was me studying for this exams, barely going on Instagram or my blog, but checking Twitter more than I care to admit. I wanted to share with you guys an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago.

I often take outfit pictures daily to have more than one post planned out, with at least the visuals selected. I take a lot of pictures in different areas, to give my Instagram feed variety and show off my lovely surroundings. This I took in my backyard, where my dad is currently building a lounge like area where all my family can come when we went to spend time together.

I will admit, I should have moved the chair out to the side, but there are so many imperfections in my backgrounds that I just figured I would keep it, even if no one clicks like if I post one of these on Instagram. I’ve always kept things in my pictures that made it more real, not everything perfectly placed because I am such a messy person and I am not creative when it comes to things like flatlays.

These pictures vary from the jacket I have on to what I have in my hands. I love bananas, and one of my favorite artists (aminé) uses them as a prop to his music, and I love that idea so I tried to incorporate them in my look, maybe it worked. What do you think?

Have a good day, and I’ll go back to studying for my last final tommorrow.

Let me know what quirky props you’ve used in flatlays or outfit photos in the comments below ❤️IMG_3370IMG_3398IMG_3411IMG_3259IMG_3270

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.

Christmas 2017

Hello everyone! I hope you’re Christmas celebrations where filled with love and joy. Mine were full of my family, spending time with them and enjoying all the love I have in my life. I am so thankful to have them, to have such amazing support in all my endeavors, no matter what they are.

I’m excited for 2018, to focus on my love of fashion and see where my hard work can take me. Here’s to many goals in the future!
