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

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.

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

Being true to myself

Hi everyone!

Today I will be talking about my favorite thing about my outfits lately. I have been getting more interested in accessories, especially gold ones.

As time goes on I realized how important they are to an outfit. By wearing necklaces, earrings, rings, scarves, belts and so much more, an outfit can look more chic and interesting.

As some of you may know, I have gold hoop earrings, and a necklace saying ‘love that I’ve been wearing constantly.

The following outfit is something is very exciting to wear. It makes me feel like a badass, in all honestly.

I hardly ever wear this crop top I bought years ago from Forever 21, since it has always been a risqué too for me, but now is as good as time as any to try different styles.

These whit jeans from H&M are some of my favorite, especially with the gold zippers on the bottom. The zippers on the pockets also make the outfit a bit more colorful, and fit perfectly in the color scheme of my outfit.

A light denim jacket was a perfect way to top this look off, I used it as a good way to cover up if need be, but I left it in buttoned to show off the necklaces. It was a nice pop of color, the light blue standing out against the white articles of clothing.

The shoes, my go to for so many outfits, even if they are a size too big. When your mom buys shoes on Black Friday, you were them. These have been a staple in my closet, always allowing me to feel comfortable and confident whenever I put them on.

The details of an outfit matter, the sunglasses can be the staple pieces, or maybe the shoes help you stand out. Let me know what accessories you’ve been loving at the moment, and if you are into gold jewelry as much as I am.

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.
