Styling white pants

hello!

Hope you are all having a great week so far.

I was cleaning my closet out, and found these white jeans I had been looking for. I had bought them and never tried to make an outfit with it, but I bought a crop top I thought would look great with it.

I paired these open legged pants with a polka dot crop top, a black belt and heels.

I never wear outfits that look so put together, I usually wear jeans and a hoodie to class every other day.

Since spring is here, I thought I would try and put more effort into a different part of my style.

I rarely wear white jeans, so this is a great experiment with my style. I like how the outfit looks and feels, especially the heels, they give it a mature vibe.

I love adding accessories, such as the belt, the barrettes and the sunglasses. Small details really bring an outfit together, and I can’t wait to get rings/earrings/necklaces to enhance all my future outfits.

This spring/summer is going to be a time of reinventing my style, to learning how to work pieces into my wardrobe I rarely use, such as short sleeve shirts.

Hope you have a great day!

Spring break update

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.

*There will be mentions of body issues and eating habits in this post*

I didn’t even realize how long of a break I had taken from my blog and fashion Instagram, I needed to focus on other things and take a break from social media.

These pictures are from January I believe, when I had a day off from class and wanted to make sure I got out and took some outfit pictures. Now that I drive I find it easier to look for locations to take pictures in, allowing me to enjoy surroundings I have never seen before.

This was taken outside of a nursing home outside of the city, I parked and took a lot of pictures. I was excited to wear the fanny pack I had bought at urban outfitters, as well as the shirt I had thrifted.

When I look at these pictures, I remind myself the unrealistic expectations I have for myself. I deleted the Instagram app from my phone because all I would see is really thin girls that travel the world and wear amazing clothes. There is absolutely nothing wrong that, but I was (and sometimes still am) striving to have every picture I take be as good as theirs.

Since the start of the year I have been obsessing over my weight, swapping healthy alternatives for the food I love. I end up eating black bean burgers, smoothie bowls and vegan burritos.

I tried to find a good eating style for me, but fell into a hole of self doubt and disgust whenever I looked at myself in the mirror. My confidence has plummeted, even when I eat well and exercise, it feels as though I can never be happy with the way I look.

Spring is starting, which means shorts and crop tops. I love those pieces of clothing, but am not at the point where I feel comfortable enough in my body to wear those yet.

I am going to make it a mission to be kind to my body, to be more aware of what I my body needs to be healthy.

Thank you so much for reading, see you next time.

We turned 22

Hello everyone, thank you for reading this special post.

Since I’ve been on a bit of a break from blogging, I am here to share my birthday plans.

Turning 22 wasn’t as exciting as the way I spent celebrating the birthday before this but it was still beautiful.

My twin and I went to breakfast with friends, and were treated to such a wonderful meal.

As I get older I realize the days of family planning the day around you even in your birthday are rare.

Everyone is so busy with their lives, it seems like any other day. I don’t like having a lot of attention, but this was always something I looked forward to.

I was also able to finally wear the navy blazer I had bought at a thrift store, and finally wore the jeans I bought at free people.

However, because it was our birthday I was able to coerce my twin into taking pictures with me, and am so happy with how they turned out.

I was happy that we were able to do something, and when we got home our mom was making our favorite meal, which was really exciting.

As time goes on, I don’t wish for material things, the presence of my friends and family is more than enough.

Here’s to a great year of being 22!

Twenty Øne Piløts concert

It finally happened!

After years of listening to the band Twenty One Piløts I finally made it to one of their live concerts!

I wanted to make sure I got tickets so I register through Ticketmaster and was able to buy tickets before the general sale.

I got some good seats, making sure I avoided the floor since I didn’t want to stand all night surrounded by way too many people and not being able to really move.

I bought the tickets and found friends to go with. After waiting for so long, the day finally arrived. I was so excited I could barely sleep or sit through my biology class.

Whenever I go to concerts I get zero pictures, and I wanted this to be an exception. The first pictures are the outfit I had originally planned to wear, but the pants were too baggy so I put on black jeans instead.

After my best friend Brenda and I took forever doing our makeup, my coworker Todd came to pick us up and head to Portland. I was surprised at the amount of people going to the concert, but was excited to finally hear the music I had been replaying on spotify for months.

When we go to the venue after waiting in line for about 20 minutes, we went into the Moda Center. The opening acts seemed to last hours, especially since I wasn’t too familiar with their music.

The lights went out, and I saw a torch at the stage. There they were, Tyler and Josh! I was in disbelief, trying to comprehend that they were in the same room. The music started, and it is safe to say, I had the best concert experience thus far.

Everything about the concert was amazing, especially the graphics, colors and use of props to relate to their songs. If you ever have the chance to see Twenty One Pilots, take it! Even if you dont know a lot of their music, you’ll still enjoy the energy they exude.

Thank you for reading my rant about the concert. Have a great day

A high collar

Hello everyone! I am back with another outfit post. This one is far more girly than what I tend to wear, but I wanted to try something new. The high collared shirt is one of my favorites, I love the detailing in the front.

Whenever I wear it I remember my birthday, that was when I bought it. I wanted to buy clothes that I usually stray away from, and I am glad I did.

My personal style is always changing depending on how I feel. It can be girly and feminine, with skirts and dresses, or very casual with jeans and a tshirt.

Whatever I wear, it is important for me to feel comfortable, that I feel good in the clothes, that it is not too loose or too tight. Sometimes I want to wear different clothes, shirts that I can tuck in to my jeans, shirts that are cropped at the belly button. I am not completely comfortable with crop tops at the moment, but I wanted to try them out and see what kind of style I like.

Let me know what kind of style you like to wear.

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.

Glow

Hello!

Today’s blog post is something I’ve been meaning to share. Being busy with school and work can often lead me to a lot of different emotions, one being how I view myself in this vast world we live in.

There are moments which make me think about how I live my life, and how blessed I am to be able to even type this.

I get so caught up in social media, in being an “it” girl that has thousands of Instagram followers, people that want to know what she wears and where she gets it.

If you must know, I bought this shirt for $6 at a thrift store, the sunglasses were on sale for $10 at Pacsun, the shoes a Christmas present and the jeans were my older sisters. I don’t have name brands to share with you, the most I’ve ever worn is Tommy Hilfiger, and am okay with that right now.

I want to own and wear clothes that do not create a facade about me, but rather have a style all my own. I may never be one of the girls that pop up on the explore page on Instagram with over 1,000 likes but maybe the few that look at my outfits and my accounts get to know someone they genuinely like.

I’m tired of trying to copy the pictures I see on Tumblr, and not use the word “inspired” when I mean, “I wish I was the girl in the picture”

For all those bloggers that do have such beautiful photos and have started careers as bloggers, I am so proud of you and hope your blogs reflect how amazing you are. It’s time for me to do the same.
