scarf styling

Nothing in the world is better than going through your grandmother’s clothes when they’re moving and finding amazing pieces. I found an array of items in her never ending racks, but (gotta give credit where credit is due) my momma found this beautiful little scarf amongst all her things. And a scarf this stunning calls for a pretty pink sweater with a lil lace peeking out from under, distressed shorts (to make the look a tad more casual), and a pair of velvet black flats (THAT I GOT FOR $10 AT A THRIFT STORE???!!). Hope you all enjoy this look and play with the trend yourself ūüôā

urban girl: handcrafted top

This is a slightly more “urban” and colorful look than I’m usually sporting but I am OBSESSED with it. I basically lived in this hat from Urban all summer along with my favorite lil purse from Forever 21. I made this top a super long time ago and found it again when I cleaned my closet, so of course I had to feature it in a post! You can easily put a more boho flair on this shirt (maybe I’ll do a post on little tweaks to change up the style around the same article of clothing?? Anybody interested??). And I always love me a nice off the shoulder look and “holy” jean.

leotard time!

¬†I think leotards with high-wasited jeans or shorts looks SOOOO chic. For this look I styled my black shorts¬†with a vintage leotard that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE (slightly inconvenient when you have to go to the bathroom but so cute that I can muster the strength to power through). I paired it with a pair of black cutout booties with bronze details (I didn’t get a photo but will try to insert one soon) and played up the black and bronze even further through all my jewelry! Prepare yourself for a heap of summer outfit ideas over the next couple weeks… they’re comin for ya!

Happy Summer to you all! Enjoy ūüôā

sunny in san francisco

 

I’ve had a foreign exchange student from Germany for the past year, Felicia, and her family arrived last week to tour California before they all go back home ūüė¶ But, on the upside, we all get to go on a bunch of road¬†trips together! A few days ago, we hit the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and yesterday, we roamed around the beautiful streets of San Fransisco. We took them to do all¬†the touristy things like walk on the Golden Gate Bridge, shop around Union Square, and see China Town and Little Italy! It was a tad windy near the water, but such an amazing and sunny day.

It’s usually a little too cold to get away with jean shorts when I visit SF, but with a sweater and my trusty jean jacket, I was just fine yesterday! I tend to want to dress a lil more urban in the city, but I still like remaining true to my style. I mixed my more laid-back boho pieces (the fringe sweater and DIYed shorts) and topped them with white, clean accessories (my favorite purse, snake patterned flats, and¬†my SUPER COOL¬†sunnies). To play on this combination of styles, I paired some modern silver rings with my vintage-looking ones. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE RINGS. I feel naked without them. I also wanted to exercise the jean on jean trend, and I¬†think these washes go splendidly with¬†one another.

summertime fine

Summertime is here! Which means endless freedom, sundresses, and sandals… three of the very best things. Urban Outfitters had a 30% off all dresses sale a couple of weeks ago, so of course I had to take advantage of it and got this cute lil off the shoulder piece. When throwing on a dress, it’s all about the accessories to make an outfit more interesting! I opted for my lace up sandals (a style I’m totally obsessed with and NEED¬†to get more of), a necklace I made, a bunch of random bronze rings and a bracelet, and my favorite white purse! I threw up the top section of my hair into a messy, little ponytail and was good to go.

pretty in pastels

I love getting out of town and experiencing another city for a little while. You get to escape from reality and the same old routines, and explore some place else. Switch things up and¬†do something completely different from your daily life. Through out this week, I’m staying in Los Angeles¬†and I’ll be uploading little posts and outfits each day for you all to see!

We went down to San Diego for the day to look at universities and it was DEATHLY hot and humid. So I put together this cute ensemble¬†using¬†the least clothes possible to dress for the weather. I ALSO decided to switch it up a little and actually wear color… something that I usually only ever do through olive greens and burgundys. You guys proud of me??? I think these pastel colors look insanely chic. It was¬†something that I threw together not thinking I would like at first, but I ended up falling in love with the look! Hope you all can get some inspiration and enjoy the abundance of posts to come this week ūüôā

fourth of july in style

For my American readers, we all know that a special day is¬†coming up…… THE FOURTH OF JULY!!! A day full of patriotism, fun, and fireworks is upon¬†us and I can truly say that I love the country that I¬†am from.¬†My love for it has grown even stronger, finally love is love from sea to shining sea. We are the land of the free and the home of the brave, I have put together some outfits that help capture the essence¬†of just that.DSC01014

Nothing says America more than a red tank, jean shorts, and converse. Add festive socks, bandanas, leis, or shoes to add more to the outfit!

This is for my girls who complain that they have nothing in their closet to wear on the fourth. A simple white tank and some high-waisted shorts are in everyone’s closet. Add some red, white, and blue accessories and you’re good to go! (DOLLAR STORES HAVE TONS OF GREAT STUFF)

If you’re going to be spending your day by the¬†water, like I’ll be doin; a bikini, shorts, and shades are all you need! I love this reversible top – stripes on one side, stars on the other! And a pair of white shorts will make you look super tan

Rompers are definitely my favorite thing for the summer! They’re so easy to throw on and effortlessly look put-together. This over sized paisley romper is a perfect coverup and outfit for the fourth!

For my girly girls, a skater skirt and halter top can never be a bad combination… but a JEAN skater skirt and red and white striped halter???? Destined for greatness.

Thousands of girls across the country will probably be in crop tops and high-waisted shorts with a red flannel tied around their waists – I thought I’d be a tiny bit different… This tee has some converse with stars and stripes and I, of course, had to bring out my Trues (for the stitching of the American flag DUH).

sweet summer time

Summer is with no doubt my favorite time of the year. I always feel so free, like there’s endless possibilities for my day. And even though I know it’s not true, it seems as if it’s infinite – that these long exhilarating summer days will last forever. I also feel as if you can play with your style; experimenting with new trends and especially in this season, creating your own clothing. Summer makes me feel a freedom and happiness that doesn’t typically¬†come along with the colder months and that is why it is oh so sweet.

I love this look so much. It’s based off such a simple look, high-waisted shorts and a plain tank, but you can add your own flair with an assortment of jewelry. Adding texture (this crocheted kimono) and patterns (these upholstered boots), transforms an everyday boring look into something so much cuter and personalized.

Ahhhhhhhh omg why is she wearing white on white?!?!? This look is so refreshing and summery. Sometimes all white can be a bit overwhelming but with the lil show of my stomach and the big silver buttons on these super cute shorts, it breaks up the monochromatic look. I threw on a bright blue fringe purse and intricate cuff to add some color to the blank canvas.

Outfits are all about taking base pieces and adding unique accessories to spice them up. This knit tank and slightly oversized black shorts are a super easy ensemble, but add this super cool belt and BAM instantly more fashionable and intriguing.

Flowy shorts are a necessity for my summer wardrobe, they’re super comfy and moveable (not too mention super cute). Also high-neck tops are all the rave, balancing out the cropped shirt and short shorts with a modest and ultra stylish neckline.

beachin’ in baja

I am finally uploading this post and it feels indescribably great to be back on here:) Over spring break, I headed down to Cabo San Lucas and thought I’d share with you some outfits and some fantastic views. I miss waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean, now it’s back to the sound of my alarm clock. I loved relaxing by the pool with a good book and margarita (virgin of course hehe) instead of assigned reading and a pencil. But it was amazing while it lasted and if these pictures capture even half of the¬†beauty of¬†Mexico¬†than I’ve done my job right, enjoy

I’m finally posting again on here, I’m sorry that its been so long! But with school starting up again for most people – mine already has ūüė¶ I decided to put together some back to school outfits for you! I love wearing cute outfits for school but I also love comfort and simplicity, so I have some easy looks¬†that I hope you can¬†get inspiration from (:

I’ve been obsessed with tops like this! I love the long wide sleeves and interesting patterns; throw a top like this on with a simple pair of shorts or jeans and head out the door. And of course you’ve gotta have a pair of strappy sandals!

I’m so in love with long, billowy pants like these! They’re super cute but basically feel like pajamas. And you can never go wrong with a white v-neck ūüôā
