Red has recently walked its way into my wardrobe this winter, and I’m all about it. I was never a fan of red until recently but I think it’s the best way to add a pop of color and it definitely makes a statement!
Since starting blogging and paying a lot more attention to detail when scrolling through Instagram, I’ve gotten into hats! I never thought I looked good in them and stayed away, but I took a risk with the baker boy hat/conductor hat/whatever you want to call it, and I loved it! So, I took another risk with this hat, and I think you should too. It’s a fun way to change an outfit and it can take a somewhat boring outfit to an exciting outfit!
The infamous mule slides. I love them. You need too as well. Go get them.
I think for me, a lot of things are either everything or they’re nothing. I’m very much a “label” kind of girl. I like to know what’s going on, I like to know how you feel and I wanted to know it about a week ago so if you haven’t told me, you’re behind schedule. I’m also very much a “let’s move this forward” type of girl. I don’t like to linger in the unknown because 1) it freaks me out and 2) anything can happen at this point. Are there other girls? I don’t know, but you can bet that I’ll ask. Are things going to be over tomorrow? I hope not because I’ve planned a secret relationship in my head and that breakup would be tragic. So yes, it’s either everything or it’s nothing. I’m fine with whatever, you just need to let me know so I can prepare myself for this and not let the relationship in my head progress if we aren’t progressing.
For me, it’s also super frustrating to know that I want something really bad but to be unsure of what the other person involved wants. Like I said, it’s really hard for me to just kind of sit in the middle. I’m not saying that I jump into relationships, I’ve had so few of them but I know when I want something, and I don’t want just everything. I’m very picky about who I spend my time with because I’ve been let down quite a few times, so my time is precious. I don’t spend time with just anybody unless I’m positive that this could be something.
The middle is comfortable for some people though, and that’s what annoys me. We aren’t all middle people. Some people, like myself, like to know what the hell is going on. I think people assume that once you tell someone you like them, you have to date. I’m not asking to date you, I’m just asking if you like me or not. It’s actually quite simple to tell someone you like them. That’s what I don’t get, I don’t understand how some people can’t be honest and say it. Instead, it’s like a game, and I don’t do games. I cut people off once I realize they’re playing a game because I can’t do it and I don’t put up with that. If a guy wants to play a game, they can go play it with another girl because I definitely won’t be doing that. Maybe that’s one of my downfalls. I don’t settle for just anybody because I know what I’m worth and once someone is messing with my worth, they’re gone. If I feel in the slightest that they don’t realize and respect that I’m a human with feelings and emotions, just like them, I cut them off. It’s really easy for me to stop caring about a person which, is a downfall. I only give out so many chances before I have to protect myself and walk away and unfortunately, I don’t see that happening more. I see a lot of girls sticking around for relationships that aren’t going anywhere and 99% of the time, it leaves the girl hurt because the male in the equation is the one that calls the shots.
I think as a creator, influencer, blogger, whatever you want to call it, you’re supposed to portray this perfect life that’s put together, and you have the ideal filter for everything. But, I’m not that perfect person, and while I may act like I have my shit together, I most certainly don’t. I have the same problems that ever other single twenty-something girl has, and I’m not scared to admit it. Life is a mess, and it’s even harder to figure out when somebody is a middle person and the other isn’t.
Guys…I’ve jumped on the star print bandwagon and I don’t plan on getting off anytime soon. I really don’t know what it is about stars but everybody is wearing them this season and I’m all for it. With me being all for it, I saw a sheer print star shirt and I had to get it. Sheer shirts are something that’s also realllly in this season coming in different variations.
The top that I’m wearing is from Zara and what I really love about it is that it wasn’t over $80 like some brands are charging. Sorry but I’m not spending $80 on some mesh fabric with stars on it, I’ll stick to my under $20 version.
For my pants, I kept it really simple with these black paper bag pants from ASOS! This shirt would also look super cute with black jeans if you wanted to be more casual!
Hi! I’m so excited to be back with a post that’s acceptable for the office! Well, at least it’s acceptable in the office I work in, and I can imagine it would be acceptable in most that require business casual! The only thing that might be questionable would be the denim skirt, but that could easily be switched out.
If you’re anything like me, then you hate having to get up in the morning to get dressed for work at 8am. I’m not about it and dread it the night before. But, this outfit is super easy and looks like you spent more time getting ready than you actually did. The shirt makes it dressy and like you’re trying, but the skirt keeps it semi-casual! My skirt is under $30 which I also really like. I have it linked here! Like I said above, if your office doesn’t allow denim/black denim like mine does, then you can switch it out for a nicer pair of pants like these from Urban Outfitters or a different skirt!
I know some people don’t like navy and black together but personally, I do. I don’t mind the two together when it’s paired like this. I think the cream in the shirt helps break up the navy as well. My shirt is no longer available but here are two other options that I really like! This one is from Topshop, and this one is from Treasure & Bond!
For the shoes, I kept it really simple with my favorite fall shoe. These mules are from Target, but I’ve seen them pretty much everywhere this season!
Guess whos back, back again?! It’s me!! Long, long time no talk but I hope you all have been doing well! Life is crazy at the moment, and I plan on doing a post talking about that, but for now, I have another fashion post! It’s FINALLY feeling like fall here which means I can layer and wear jackets and pants and all of the cute fall clothes.
This look is super casual, but it’s nice for every day or even a casual night time look for dinner or something. I like it a lot mainly because I’m wearing my great grandpa’s U.S Army jacket which is fun but at the same time my great grandma (GG) most definitely took his name off of it. You’d probably have to have known her for it to be funny but basically, she was one of the most stubborn ladies I have ever met…must run in the family 😉 Anyways, since you can’t buy the jacket, I’ve linked one that is super super similar!
The shirt I’ve shared on Instagram already, but I love it! It’s from ASOS and SUPER cheap. It’s also a great basic piece for an even better price. I love wearing red because I consider it a neutral..everybody loves red.
My jeans are from Topshop and let me tell you, I swear by Topshop jeans. They’re my favorite because they’re super tight, keep their shape all day, but they’re still so comfortable. They’re also really nice because they come in various lengths (mine are a 28X30) which helps people like me who lack I the height region. But one thing is that I do think they run small so you do need to size up. I typically wear a 26, and these are a size 28!
For my accessories, I just wore my ring from David Yurman that I don’t ever take off and two rings that belonged to my grandma! I also wore a belt that I got a year ago from Nordstrom, my Ray-Ban sunglasses and a choker from ASOS!
As always, make sure to follow me on Instagram so you can stay up to date with my outfits because I always post there first!
Long time no talk! I’ve been SO busy with going back to school, recruitment and just life in general. I’m so excited to finally be able to sit down and write a new post for you all. It seems fitting that my new post is related to Fall since well, it’s already September! Where did the time go?! Yeah, I literally don’t know either.
During the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I picked up this jacket from Levi’s that’s soo comfortable and I can’t wait to actually wear it ya know, when it’s not 85 degrees. Faux shearling jackets have been in for a few years now but I’m finally jumping on the bandwagon and giving into this trend. I do really like this jacket though and like I said, I’m so excited to wear it. I think it’s going to be one of my fall staples because I can wear it with leggings to class or with jeans on a typical day!
Another fall staple which I’ve already talked about are these Topshop jeans and these Nine West (P.S these are on sale for $35!!!!!) shoes! Black denim is so essential to my wardrobe because it’s easy to pair with a t shirt, tennis shoes and a jacket for a day look but you can also take these same jeans and wear them with heels, a nicer top and you’re ready to go out.
This is a short post but it’s pretty to the point! As a reminder, follow my Instagram (@sydney.wilhelm) to stay up to date with what I’m wearing before it hits the blog!
You’ve heard about it. You’ve seen it (unless you haven’t and then this begs the question of where have you been?? Living under a rock?!?!!!). But now what is it? Millennial pink has been the rage for a few months now and it’s been EVERYWHERE. But do you know why? Or even what it is?
Here’s what you should know:
Millennial pink is NOT on the color wheel.
It embraces a range of shades in Pantone terms, from Rose Quartz and Pale Dogwood to Candy Pink.
Millennial pink is not always pink. It can pick up on beige or peach tones.
Also known as Tumblr pink.
It’s Barbie pink..toned down and with the blue hues taken out.
Notes Véronique Hyland of The Cut says, “[I]t’s ironic pink, pink without the sugary prettiness.” It’s almost an androgynous pink so gone are the days that blue is a boy color and pink is a girl color. Think…Glossier packaging pink. Or the top of The Grand Budapest Hotel pink. Or even Acne shopping bags.
While it’s been present for a few years, it seems to be sticking around. It was first seen around 2007 with the pink Acne shopping bags but really came into play around 2014. In that year alone, The Grand Budapest Hotel movie premiered, Sophia Amoruso (founder of Nasty Gal) released her first book called #Girlboss which featured a pink cover and #palepink was one of the top searches on Tumblr.
Come 2015, Drake released Hotline Bling which featured a pink album cover, Pantone announced rose quartz the color of the year and Nike JUST came out with a whole Millennial Pink collection.
In 2016, models were wearing pink nail polish on the runway, an all pink restaurant opened in New York, Le Creuset released pink kitchenware, Rihanna had males wearing pink suits for her collection with Fenty and Puma at Paris fashion week.
If you haven’t seen it literally everywhere already in 2017 then you really are living under a rock.
