Festival Edit | Forever21

Okay, I NEVER shop at Forever21 but I was looking for an outfit for a festival themed post, and I hit the jackpot. I can honestly say that I’m surprised. Typically I feel like the store is a mess, the employees don’t help you, and it’s impossible to find what you want. But, that day must have been a good day because the store was clean and I found so many options. So, here’s what I found!

ASOS 90’s Round Sunglasses ($13)

These sunglasses are my FAVORITE for this season! Colored sunglasses were super in last summer, and they’re still making an appearance this summer! I personally love the yellow because it makes my eyes look green. Plus, I love that they’re so cheap since they are such a “statement” accessory.

This dress is not online yet, but when it is, I will link it! ASOS Felt Panama Hat ($32)

This dress is one of my new favorites! I had to size up in it because the waist runs small, but once it’s online, I’ll link it for you guys to buy! The straps tie making it fit a variety of chest sizes (which is perfect because I lack in that department lol). But, I love that it’s super flowy and comfortable!

This hat has been featured a couple of times on my Instagram, but I love it! I’m not typically a hat person, but I can’t stop wearing this style! I recommend trying it out even if you don’t normally wear hats.

Faux Suede Buckled Ankle Boots ($35)

I’ve been looking for booties like this for such a long time, but I didn’t want to spend a lot on them because I wasn’t sure how often I would wear them. I found these and they’re the perfect spring color and perfect price. For only $35, you can’t go wrong! They’re pretty comfortable for what they are, but I don’t recommend wearing/standing in them for 8+ hours! I did that before I broke them in and I can honestly say that my feet were crying at the end of the night. I’m hoping that once I break them in, they’ll be more comfortable!

Red Pants

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!

Hat

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!

Everything or Nothing.

‘Everything’ T-Shirt

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.

Stripe Pants

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.

Seeing Stars

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!

IMG_4453Hi! 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. Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

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!

Time for my favorite part, my shoes! No joke, they’re from Target! Yes, Target and under $30!

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!
