A simple button up

Hello everyone! Summer is almost coming to a close and I wanted to share with you an outfit I am really excited about.

I have always loved menswear inspired outfits. Guys always seem to be so put together, even in such simple outfits. I haven’t had a button up I’ve ever been really in love with.. until now.

I was rummaging through a friends closet when I found this shirt, with a tag and all. It was a great find from Nordstrom’s that I was excited to give a feminine twist. I wore it with shorts and my all white adidas, which most of you know how rarely I wear. I loved the subtle stripes, especially with the bolder accessories I chose to wear.

My gold hoop earrings and tiny sunglasses are my staple pieces at the moment, and I would not have it any other way. The accessories worn always complete an outfit, and I love how even with them my outfit was still very laid back.

When my friend and I were out to lunch we walked around to find locations to take my outfit pictures at and I was pleasantly surprised with how well she took them. It was really hot while we took the pictures and I ended up taking a couple more before we tried to find an air conditioned room.

Also, if you’re gonna buy a $3 cupcake, dont be like me and take 2 bites before throwing it away.

Have a great day and see you next time.

Keep going

Good morning everyone! I am so excited to be writing another blog post, this time about some of my go tos when it comes to choosing in outfit.

Below is an outfit with a lace top, skinny jeans, my go to vans and sunglasses.

I love these capris my mom chose for me at goodwill while we shopped, since I am very picky about what I choose and she is more aware of what kind of different jeans I should try out. I always go for jeans that I don’t have to fold at the ankles, because I am already so short I don’t want to have jeans I have to roll up twice or three times every time I wear them. I want jeans that fit at the ankles and my waist, not one or the other.

My top is a lace one that my older sister gave me, since she is moving to New York next week she wanted to clear her closet out before she left, lucky me!

With strapless shirts it is still a challenge to wear them without any type of sweater, I attempted to but it was so hot I had to take the sweater of once we left the house. I have always felt insecure of my arms, them being too hairy, too thin, too noticeable.

And of course, would my outfit be complete without my $3 sunglasses from goodwill? I think we all know the answer to that.

Also I would like to thank Denny’s for the amazing lighting that allowed me to have great selfies that really showed off my lipstick I tried to match with my

Shirt, and the highlight I put on in the morning.

When in doubt, put some highlighter on.

Constant update

Hello! This blog post is something different. I usually don’t wear a lot of makeup, even when I am out with friends. In high school I never wore it, and as a freshman in college I realized what I was missing. Every girl in my hall would have such pretty makeup looks, and I was lucky enough to learn a thing or two from one of my friends that was really good at it. She showed me what looks could come from the makeup I own, and I loved the gold eyeshadow she would use.

My friend is really into makeup and she’s taken me to Sephora quite frequently so I’ve learned a bout different makeup products and which ones would look good on me.

That has always been difficult, since I am a women of color and a lot of the makeup tutorials I’ve seen are girls who dont really look like me, but I’ve found some looks that work that I wear a lot. I wanted to try something different, such as this pink look. I tend to wear peach, light pink, maybe gold once in a while. My friend did my eyes and I love the bright pink, as well as the lips and the highlighter I got.

This was a moment where I went out of my comfort zone and really tried experimenting with my makeup, and I loved the result. I am going to try different makeup looks with brighter colors. Let me knw what your go to makeup look is x

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.

Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome back to my blog. Today I am talking about the last day of my summer term. Having taken a final, I was done with classes around 2 pm.

My friend and I were both free so we decided to go out for lunch. The restaurant we went to was more popular for hangover food than anything else. The food I bought was a veggie burger, which was not as tasty as I would have liked. The milkshakes we bought were amazing, but they were so big it was hard to finish them.

When ever I go downtown (which is frequently) I always go to a book store, “The Book Bin” since I was little. I can read so many books, especially a variety of history books.

When I got ready, I wanted to wear shorts. These are longer than normal shorts, but are my favorite. The ones I usually wear are really tight, so I tend to stick with ones that are a bit longer, and honestly they look better than regular length ones. The red shirt is one of my favorites from adidas, there streetwear is so simple and comfortable, yet very stylish. With my go to accessories, the outfit become more street stylish, more feminine with earrings and sunglasses.

Thank you for reading, see you tomorrow for my last post of the week.

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.
