The Thing About Fashion Bloggers…

IMG_5174IMG_5180IMG_5188IMG_5181 IMG_5176 IMG_5183 IMG_5185 IMG_5189Creating a title for this outfit post was nearly impossible. I feel like I incorporated so many of my personalities within one single outfit. It’s girly, comfortable, warm, chic, athletic, tomboy, minimal, artistic, and just…me. That’s the thing about fashion bloggers or just fashion lovers in general…we’re a little bit of everything. We don’t stay in one little tiny box. We step out of our comfort zone every single day. We love everything and anything. Fashion is all about being open to the possibilities. It’s about making a girly outfit more tomboy. It’s about throwing on some sneakers when you’re wearing a $1oo fleece sweater. It’s about taking your favorite boyfriend jeans and pairing them with your favorite lipstick. If you can’t tell already, I really enjoy outfits that have a little contradiction within them. Fashion lovers love taking risks. We’re always trying to find new ways to make an outfit more “us” and more unique. We’re innovators. Walking out the door with just a t-shirt and jeans is not a simple task. We’re always searching for our lipstick, our clutch, our heels and our magazine for the road. We’re constantly looking for new ways to reinvent ourselves and our wardrobe. I love fashion. I love who I am since it entered into my life.

Another great thing about fashion is that sometimes outfits bring out the best in you and they take you to some amazing places to meet some amazing people. I met two lovely fashion bloggers in this outfit and I could not be more grateful that they entered my life. Even if it was just a short Starbucks meet up, meeting Christine from and Alena from was one of the best little things to happen to me so far this year. It’s amazing to see bloggers uplifting bloggers. THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION. We are just doing what we love and there’s no shame in supporting one another. It was a beautiful thing to experience with such beautiful ladies. Christine & Alena, so happy I met you. You guys are so much fun. Check out their blogs! They are so talented and really know how make an outfit unique.

With love,

IMG_3606IMG_3590IMG_3592IMG_3595IMG_3597IMG_3599IMG_3602IMG_3587I do not understand my obsession with moss colored tops. It’s out of control at the moment. It’s just like black or white, it goes with absolutely everything. Weird, but I think it’s such a classy winter color. The unique, almost suede-like, material has me feeling some sort of way. It’s so comfortable and it’s the perfect layering piece. I love pairing turtlenecks with absolutely everything lately, it allows me to keep some of my short sleeve tops for a little while longer. I’ve also had this weird obsession with red lipstick. I still have my trusty dark maroon lipstick in my purse at all times but lately I’ve been reaching for this deep red lip. I’m so festive aren’t I?

By the way, I have a good reason as to why I haven’t been blogging as much. I’ve been moving, traveling and working. Busy busy busy. I can’t wait until I’m finally settled into my new place because I have some fun things planned that may be coming soon. Stay tuned for that. Thanks for all your love and support. I’ve missed you all right back!

I need a break.

IMG_1935 IMG_1936 IMG_1946 IMG_1948 IMG_1951Believe it or not, I don’t like to dress up every-single-day. I’m not even sure if that’s healthy. You need to give yourself a little time out every once in awhile. Put on your favorite pair of ripped up skinny jeans and call it a day my friend. I love days like these a lot because I’m never worried about putting on a show with my outfit. I kind of throw on whatever sounds the comfiest. I still have to be somewhat presentable because I’m usually heading to work or to run errands. I ONLY leave the house looking like a complete slob when it’s past midnight and I’m just headed to the grocery store to grab some chocolate. In and out of Walmart in .30 seconds. That’s the only scenario when it’s right to wear sweats that could fit your boyfriend and a t-shirt that has your dinner from earlier on it. Sadly, that’s some peoples daily wardrobe. Let’s take a moment of silence for those people shall we. Hopefully they find my blog and realize how EASY it is to be comfy but look presentable at the same time. I know most people would choose flats but I’ve honestly trained my feet to wear heels so much that wearing flats might be a struggle. I love my heels. LOVE THEM. A little tip if you’re feeling like your outfit is missing something, always make sure that you give all of your necklaces a little fashion show in the mirror before you make your final outfit decision. Find one that makes you feel beautiful and then I think you’ve found a winner. This outfit would be nothing without this bright orange necklace. (It matches the gorgeous trees behind me.) Ahh…Fall. Why you gotta be so beautiful?

Be Bold, Bejeweled

IMG_1709 IMG_1719 IMG_1726 IMG_1734Being bold and brave when choosing your outfit of the day can be hard. What will people think of you? My answer to that question is I really don’t give a hoot. I’ve said this before but I dress based on my mood not on other peoples opinion of me. If I’m wearing a t-shirt and jeans that just means I’d much rather be sitting at home on the couch curled up with my hot cheetos. If I’m wearing a maxi skirt, I’m in the mood to be extra girly…lets go shopping. If I’m wearing sweats, back away and I mean far far away because I’m about to have a mental breakdown. But If I’m dressed like I am in this post, I’m ready to take on the world. Nothing says world denomination like some black leather pants and a neoprene boxy top.

I don’t feel like dressing up or doing anything actually when the weather is dark and cloudy. I get extremely lethargic when I go long periods without seeing the sun. I don’t know if I’m the only one but my happy/optimistic mood decreases when winter time approaches. If I could control the weather I would keep it 70 degrees and the sun shining all year around. But that’s not the case. I get extremely worried when this time of year rolls around because I see more sad days than I do happy days. I should seriously consider moving to California. Let’s take a day like today for example. It’s cold and rainy, I see no sign of life outside.. ok that’s dramatic but it’s icky and I’m not a fan. I haven’t left my bed all day because of it. Netflix might have been a factor to that too but whatever. Bad weather keeps me inside all day.

Silver lining: I have more time to style some future outfits, read some books, and blog. Gosh…working for a fashion magazine sounds so good right now. Anywhere hiring? Vogue? Marie Claire? I’m kidding…no I’m not.
