B Is For Blouse

IMG_9056 IMG_9054 IMG_9064 IMG_9038 IMG_9060 IMG_9040 IMG_9059B is for best blouse ever. Bulky, boxy, blouse-y, you know name it, I want to wear it. I’ve always been a fan of shapeless pieces. I love oversized blouses and dresses more than the average girl should. I think what I love about this blouse in particular is the femininity it brings to any outfit. The relaxed butterfly sleeves make me feel like such a girl but completely relaxed all at the same time. Nothing is better than that in my opinion. I really wanted to dress up this light blue beauty to the max to show you what it’s capable of and what colors look best with this shade of blue. I plan on wearing it with many other bottoms besides this statement tulle skirt. My staple black skinny jeans or my current favorite bow-tie shorts are great candidates as well. The possibilities are nearly endless.

Blouses are beauties thats for sure.

Fun In Fuchsia

IMG_8888 IMG_8877 IMG_8891 IMG_8898 IMG_8893 IMG_8895 IMG_8887Hello again,

Are you someone who feels like you never get a break to just…be. School, work, appointments, life: All these things are great but really time consuming and quite honestly, exhausting. I had one day off this week and it went by so fast. If you’re interested in what I did on that spectacular day, try not to get too excited because all I did was watch Netflix…all by myself. I’ve been hooked on this incredibly cheesy/horrible series and I’m not even going to tell you the name because I’m that embarrassed that it’s guilty pleasure. OH! And I made a birthday cake…just for me. It’s not even my birthday any time soon. I needed a day to just be myself and to do absolutely nothing. A day to lay in bed, pig out on junk food, and wear nothing but leggings and a $2 t-shirt from Target. These days are where I recharge and regroup for another crazy but rewarding week of blogging and working.

Once I’ve done all the necessary things to recharge my battery, I get back on that fashion blogger grind with a bright statement piece to make me feel alive again. There really is nothing like going from a slob-ka-bob on the couch to getting all primped up in a fuchsia romper and taking on the city by storm. I always think dressing up in something simple but bright is so refreshing. You should really try it sometime.

Casual “Go To” Everyday Outfit

IMG_8867 IMG_8840 IMG_8864 IMG_8844 IMG_8852 IMG_8866 IMG_8862Before we talk about this incredibly comfortable and easy to pull off outfit, I just had to mention the struggle it was taking these photos. Wyatt and I had the busiest day on this particular day. Running errands, heading to appointments and meetings. I actually don’t remember eating on this day because of all the things we needed to accomplish. I really wanted to take these photos regardless of what was going on and when we finally made time, it started to rain. I’ve been having a love-hate relationship with the rainy weather lately. You might be able to tell in these photos that it was raining but we didn’t care. I’m so pleased at how these photos turned out regardless of how complicated our day was. I’m one happy and exhausted blogger.

Okay, let’s talk fashion.

This outfit might be my definition of casual everyday perfection. It has all the special elements that I look for in an outfit. Comfort from my favorite pair of jeans. Boldness from my statement heels. Trendy from my off the shoulder top. I added a fedora because I knew it needed a little something extra. If a look like this can conquer the crazy day that I had then I think that just shows how wearable it is. I will most definitely be wearing this outfit again soon.

With Love,

Rainbow Sunshine Flower Dust

IMG_8750IMG_8759IMG_8761IMG_8749IMG_8743IMG_8753IMG_8747IMG_8768I could not, for the life of me, come up with a title for this post so I decided to just go with something overly obnoxious. What’s the point in being subtle anymore. I want to catch my readers attention and I hope I achieved that. HA! Okay ladies, its officially that time of the year for summer shorts. I will admit, I’d much rather wear a dress over shorts but I found the comfiest salmon colored pair that go with literally everything. I just had to purchase them because of the tie-waisted detail. We all know I love a knot. I’m very tempted to buy them in olive and black as well. I already know they will be my summer “go to” shorts. This phrase is so overused but it’s so true: You can really dress them up AND dress them down. In today’s post I wanted to show you how easy it is to elevate a pair of casual shorts. Simply add a colorful, powerful top and statement heels. Bad-a-bing.

It feels so invigorating to be a splash of color amongst a world of black and white. As we were taking pictures, I took a look around me and noticed everyone wearing no color. Again, wear what you’re comfortable with but never be afraid to step out of that box. It’s feels amazing to embrace all the colors in the rainbow. I felt like a ray of sunshine in the center of downtown Denver.

Pretty In Pastel

IMG_8909 IMG_8927 IMG_8926 IMG_8925 IMG_8910

I was talking to someone the other day that only liked to wear fall colors. I then asked her what she thought of pastels and she just gave me a disgusted look and said, “Hideous.” Well, to each their own but I think she’s crazy! Although, fall colors are absolutely beautiful, they shouldn’t be worn every single day of the year. Pastels are the reason that I breathe. It may sound a little dramatic but these range of colors make the world a little more unique and bright. I love the fall because that’s where mustard yellow, taupes, and black appear but Spring is where everything comes back to life. Purple may not be my favorite color but in it’s pastel form it might as well be.

This slightly revealing romper screams summer fun. Doesn’t this cute little number make you want to just party and let loose for just one night? I know I need a little fun in my life and I will be bringing this little guy along when I do. My closet definitely needed something saucy. I may not be 100% confident in this romper but I never like to be TOO comfortable when it comes to my outfits. If something scares me a little, it might just be the thing I needed. Don’t worry mom, you won’t see me in deep v-necks every day but trust me, it’s totally okay to be daring once in awhile.

Where in the world would I wear this romper you ask? I can think of plenty.

1.Girls Night sipping on margaritas.

2.Date Night with a statement clutch and heels.

3.An Appearance (If you’re famous or something.)

4.Clubbin’ -if you’re into that kind of thing.

5. Or if you’re like me…Just wear this on your couch wishing that you had somewhere cool to go.

I hope this post inspires you to step out of your everyday clothing and throw on something daring. I mean, if I can do it…so can you.

With Love,
