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.

Denim on denim

Happy Monday everyone! Sorry for being so inactive, I’ve had tests to study for and between that and work it’s been a crazy week.

I am back with a basic outfit I have never worn before. I love wearing black tank tops as shirts, and I dresses it up with my go to light wash denim jacket, ripped jeans and the vans I wear all the time. I was really busy on Thursday so I didn’t have time to put any makeup on, besides I don’t wear it too often so it wasn’t anything new to go makeup less.

I am so excited for spring! It is gonna be in the 80’s here in Oregon and I can’t wait to bring out my skirts and dresses that have been neglected for months!

Stay tuned for some spring outfits x

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!

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!
