It’s been ages since I’ve had time to sit down and write a blog, but I’m finally back! For my first post after my two week hiatus, I’m showing you all a few of the things I picked up over spring break! I’ve got retro makeup, Vegas-worthy bikinis, and more!
Spring has sprung! It may only be February, but the weather here in California has been blue skies and sunshine. Global warming concerns aside, the warmer weather has given me that push to switch up my wardrobe for the new season. Just like my Fall post, I’ll be showing you the 10 items in my closet that I’m most excited to rock this Spring!
It’s been a while since since my last outfit of the day post, but I’m happy to be back with a look that I really love. Winter is usually the season for dark shades: hunter greens, deep navies, and chic blacks. However, I think this dreary weather we’ve been having is the perfect opportunity to make yourself stand out with a huge POP of color. The key is to stick to complimentary colors such as blue, yellow, and red, and then tone the look down with a neutral. I never shy from a bold & vibrant outfit – check out how I put together this look!
The first season of Ryan Murphy’s hit show “Scream Queens” may have captivated us with its quirky mix of horror and humor, but the thing that kept me watching week after week was the FASHION. Chanel Oberlin (played by the Queen herself, Emma Roberts) and her squad tormented their pledges and were certainly prime suspects in some of those murders, but they definitely did it all in style. While I admired the patented “Chanel” look with its array of furs, pastels, and tons of sparkle, I was never brave or creative enough to replicate it in my daily life. So after the season finale and my inevitable withdrawals, I challenged myself to look like a Chanel for a week. Since I’m a mere college student and can’t afford real Chanel, I made do with what was in my
and my mom’s closet. Here’s what I wore!
Not too long ago I blogged about the 10 items I was most excited to start wearing this season, including the J.O.A. pastel pink coat I picked up from Crossroads for an amazing deal. And when Pantone announced that one of 2016’s colors of the year is “rose quartz,” I knew that I had made a very fashion-forward buy! So today I’m bringing you three different ways to style a blush coat just in time for the holiday season.
In an ideal world, I would never want for clothing. I would walk through Nasty Gal and not cringe at a $150 pair of ripped up jeans or $80 lace bralette. Nah, son, I would straight up buy that baby bra without even looking at the price tag. Sadly this is not an ideal world and I am one broke college student. So instead of going shopping with the money meant for my student loans, I make wish lists of the things I will buy when I inevitably marry someone rich. Or beg for as a Christmas present from the parents (hint, hint). These are the 6 things I’m currently obsessing over.
On the Carnival Cruise I took last week, we stopped for an afternoon in Ensenada, Mexico and did a little exploring. I needed something comfortable to wear for all the walking, and I wanted to layer in case it got a bit chilly. Enter this cool Safari-themed OOTD, perfect for wandering the city in style.
After letting my Ikea clothing rack sit in its box in my room for almost five weeks, I finally rolled up my sleeves and built it – ALL by myself. So I’m basically an official adult now. The only issue (besides the fact that it’s still a teeny bit wobbly) was deciding what to take out of my closet and put on display. In the end, I chose the items I’m most excited to wear this Fall! So here are 10 items I expect will be staples in my wardrobe over the next few months.
Between choosing the perfect outfit everyday and making sure my makeup matches, things like accessories kind of get lost in the big picture. I’m not a huge jewelry person, but sometimes a fantastic necklace or a cocktail ring can make or break your style. Here are five pieces of jewelry that I rely on to keep my wardrobe interesting!
I’m usually always wearing at least a little pop of color, whether it’s a fiery red lipstick or the blue snakeskin scarf I always steal from my mom’s closet. For this look, however, I decided to keep it simple and stick to traditional neutrals. I think keeping your entire palette one color can leave as big of an impression as an array of color.
