That 70’s Skirt

IMG_9526 IMG_9534 IMG_9543 IMG_9546 IMG_9541 IMG_9533 IMG_9527This post is for those minimal but trendy ladies out there. I always love adding easy, breezy outfits to my blog because it’s very likely that you own similar pieces in your own closets. I’m sure you have a grey crop top and denim skirt… and if you don’t, you should because they are all the rage right now. The 70’s styled denim skirt is so popular at the moment, every store has recently came out with their own versions of it. I also see them every single time I check my Instagram. I feel like I belong on a modern day version of “That 70’s Show.”

One thing I do recommend if you choose to be inspired by this outfit post is to LEAVE THE LEATHER JACKET AT HOME. It was 80 something degrees outside and I was close to having a heat stroke while taking these pictures. I just wanted the jacket for dramatic effect but I nearly died. (Exaggeration is my specialty, can you tell?)

Have a fabulous day! See you next time!

With Love,

Styling Shorts In Spring Time

IMG_8131 IMG_8144 IMG_8123 IMG_8143 IMG_8142 IMG_8141 IMG_8130_2Now that Spring is in full motion and we’re all ready to bust out our short shorts, here’s some inspiration for you on those inspiration-less days. I absolutely love wearing sweaters with shorts. I know at some point during the day, whether it be mornings or evenings, I will get a little chilly. Spring time doesn’t guarantee perfect weather so I like to play it safe and hold back on my tank tops just a little bit longer. That, and I just don’t want to say goodbye to my favorite pullovers. To me, the perfect combo is a relaxed sweater, distressed shorts, and my favorite summer heels. It’s a nearly bulletproof combination. If you’re ever in the mood to lightly spruce up your outfit, throw on a long dainty necklace, a fedora and SHA-BANG! You’re looking fine and fierce.

I hardly ever talk about dressing for my body type or your body type because it’s something that I don’t totally agree with. I think no matter what, big or small, curvy or thin, you should wear whatever you feel like wearing. Shapeless dresses, short shorts, or whatever else you can think of that’s controversial and pertains to only certain body types is hoopla to me. I will wear that makes me feel good and THAT’S THAT! I forgot where I was going with that…give me a second…it will come back to me…………………. OH! I was going to say that there are no rules anymore but if you do have an area of your body that you’re not the biggest fan of, there are ways to manipulate it. For example, I’m insecure about my long, thin arms. I don’t like them so I like to find ways to make them go away or look more full. I did that today by wearing a sweater that’s just half a size too big and scrunched it up to my elbows. It’s like magic. Now the focus can go to my legs rather than my arms and I feel so much more confident.

Tip of the Day: Don’t settle for looks that don’t bring out the best in you. We don’t have time for that.

My Favorite Four Letter Word.

IMG_0703 IMG_0705 IMG_0709 IMG_0717 IMG_0720 IMG_0721

L.O.V.E. is written on my TopShop midi skirt, big and bold. black and white…but thats not the only place I wish to wear it. I planned on this post being just a simple outfit of the day post but my “love” skirt got me thinking about the actual four letter word and how I want to live my life not only surrounded by that word, but constantly giving that word away. I want that random person that I walk past, who is having a bad day, to know that I love them, in the most un-awkward way of course. Everyone deserves love. I want that old friend from my hometown to know that even though we don’t talk as much… I still love her. And most of all, I not only want people to see me, but to see love when they see me. Does that make sense? I want people to know that I have a GIANT heart and if I don’t give my love to others, I will explode. I’m working on saying “I love you” more and I think we should ALL start doing that. Tomorrow isn’t promised so why not let people you care about know that you love them. ELL-OH-VEE–EEE  Say it more, do it more, and your life will be complete.

Also,  I know its almost time to put away the sandals and crop tops but I’m not ready to make that commitment. All I see are people wearing sweaters and leggings with boots and it’s driving me ca-razy! I’m trying to wear all my summer favorites before its really too late. Before you know it I’ll be wearing my dark lipstick and favorite Target booties don’t you worry. I have good news, I’m finally getting over that random cold that I got a few days ago. I’ve had nothing but hot tea, soup and lots of rest. Can’t wait to be back to normal and have my energy back. Slob-ka-bob Karissa is no fun, no fun at all.
