How are you all doing this week? I want you to comment down below something exciting or positive that happened to you this week. I'm always so thrilled to read comment from you guys and I'm also just nosey haha!
Anyway, this week, I wanted to talk about the print of the season! If you've been paying a lick of attention to this upcoming season's trends or even just checking out what's new in the shops, you'll have noticed cheetah or leopard print EVERYWHERE (much to my mom's bestie, Mrs. Cindy's, joy)! Cheetah print is obviously a timeless print that will be around long after other quirky prints, but it seems to be making an ever bigger resurgence this autumn than ever before!
Since it's a pattern I feel quite comfortable rocking, I've decided to kind of rethink the way I typically wear it and be a bit more creative with it, whether that's wearing it with unexpected colors, wear a lot more of it at once, or even mixing different patterns with it!
How has your week been? I've had another London packed week I must admit and I'm feeling to lucky to be here experiencing this. While walking around running errands for my internship, I stumbled upon some really amazing vintage and second-hand shops in the Shoreditch area! It reminded me of this gorgeous, Gianni Bini dress I found for a steal, second-hand at my old work, Style Encore Conway, which is a gently-used women's clothing shop! ( I miss that place and my work pals so so much and finding amazing steals!) In this post I wanted to talk about the benefits of shopping second-hand, vintage, or consignment clothes for both your own wallet and the planet!
I hope you've all had a great week! I'm so sorry I missed last week's post, but unfortunately my apartment was broken into and my laptop was taken! I was of course devastated, but I've decided that dwelling on it won't solve any problems, plus I want to continue enjoying my time here in London, which is exactly what this post is dedicated to! I've been getting up to some very exciting things and I want to share them with you and document them for myself as well!
I hope you've all had a great week and weekend. I've finished my first week of my internship, and I have to admit, it was a great week! So many exciting things happen in such a short period of time, so I am also quite exhausted haha.
Today, as inspired by a quote I recently heard, I wanted to talk about why I've decided to GO this year instead of waiting around for my life to happen and why you should GO too! (This will be my little cliché words-of-encouragement post.)
I hope you're all doing well! I've just made it to London, but I wrote this ahead of time so fingers crossed the journey went well! Eeeek! Anyway, I'm so glad you've joined me again here on the blog. You're the best, you know! This week, since I recently nailed a very dreamy internship, I wanted to talk about some tips and tricks, you know how I love my tips, on how to nail the job, internship, college program, etc. of your dreams! I've spent over a year and a half finding and getting this internship, and I've interviewed with my share of companies since I was about fifteen, so I think I've learned a suitcaseful!
Hope you are all doing well on this warm summer Sunday. As promised last week, this week I wanted to talk about some of the best places we visited in San Diego while we were there! I hope you enjoy learning what we got up to and maybe if you ever visit you can visit some of my recommendations below!
I hope you've all had a great week. I've been in San Diego, so I must admit, I've had a pretty smashing week! I'd never been to San Diego before, but I was met with warm weather, lush flowers, and endless things to do, but I'll talk about all those exciting things more in my mini guide to San Diego which I'm currently working up! See what I did there? Now you have some thing to look forward to for next week!
Anyway, back to this week's point of topic which is just a cheeky little catch up really. I wanted to take the time to update you some exciting things coming up for me.
How is your weekend going? Apart from the England loss, which was kind of devastating *tear*, I've had a pretty productive week. I've just arrived in San Diego which I'm feeling super excited about since I've never gotten to visit here before! I've been to most other major cities in Cali, but I've heard some of the best things about San Diego itself! Have you ever been? Comment down below what your San Diego experience was if you have and if you have any recommendations (especially food lol, you know I love my food).
Anyway, today I just wanted to talk to you guys, pretty casually about how I feel confident enough to wear the things I do, like a rainbow striped jumpsuit! A lot of the time I get "only you could pull that off" or "I wish I could rock something like that", and while that's an incredibly kind compliment to me, I don't want you to think you couldn't rock something just as out there or bold as me, because you can!
How are you doing on this sunny Sunday, lovely people? I hope you've had a brilliant week and weekend filled with picnics, barbecues, and swimming! Comment down below what you've been up to! This week, we celebrated the 4th of July with our American pals! I mean, what's more unexpected than Englishmen hosting an American Independence Day party?! (We jump on any excuse for great food and hanging with great friends of course!) Anyway, tomorrow might be Monday, but that also means a fresh start so let's make it a good week!
When you think casual, comfy clothing, the first thing that pops into your head might be some dull baggy sweatpants (Reeboks with the strap, aye!) or some nike shorts and a black or grey tee, but casual doesn't have to be that boring. Today, I want to discuss why casual and comfy doesn't have to mean black leggings and a black top! All clothing is getting more and more comfy these days, so there's no excuse not to look put together at the same time as being comfortable. Here's how to stay comfy while still keeping colorful!
How are you all doing on this muggy summer Monday? I hope you've made it through all right! Today I have a little bonus post for you! Yes, I posted yesterday and yes, there will be another post on Sunday, but I thought an extra post this week might be a nice treat just to brighten up your Monday!
Today I just wanted to talk you through a quick #OOTD, otherwise known as an 'outfit of the day'! This is the way my brain works as I put together an outfit each day!
I hope you're all doing well and have had a great summer week filled with warm weather! It's been a little TOO warm here, but ! Today I wanted to talk about a classic summer staple, the beauty of it's versatility, and how I'm styling it myself! It's the LWD, otherwise known as the Little White Dress! It's the perfect summer alternative to the LBD. (I was also joined by Marcy, the best model in out family, for this shoot!)
Here's a special shout out to my lovely dad! Thanks, Dad, for always supporting me and reading my blog posts even though they're probably not on your fav topics haha! This week, I've been lucky enough to be at the beach in Destin, Florida with some of my favorite ladies, but glad we got back here in time for celebrate Father's day! Anyway, for this week's post, I wanted to share with you some of the most popular trends I've been noticing this summer! These trends are filling shop windows, covering every fashion blogger's Instagram page, and showing up alongside the most famous celebs! So according to my calculations, these are the 5 things you need to be rocking this summer!
How are you all doing on this sunny Sunday, friends? I hope you're all having warm weather and a relaxing weekend as well! I just arrived at the beach so get ready for some summery beach posts in the coming weeks. For this particular post I wanted to talk about how to rock a romantic look this summer whether it's for a picnic, summer wedding, or any other occasion!
Thank you so much for bearing with my erratic posting after my sickness. I'm feeling much better this week, other than being tired all the time haha. Anyway, today I just wanted to talk you through a summery look I've been loving recently! All the outfit details are down below for you to shop if you're interested in anything too.
I hope you're all having a lovely day with your moms! Be sure to treat your special lady well today! Speaking of moms, this week's blog post photos were taken by my gorgeous mom! There's not much that symbolizes Mother's day more than flowers, so I'm talking all about the floral dress and why you need to have one ready to go for this summer!
I hope you're all having a great Sunday and weekend as a whole. I cannot believe it's already May...where has the year gone? Anyway, today I just wanted to talk through this outfit of the day and how to use a timeless, classic dress in an on-trend outfit!
I hope you're having a great start to the week. Today is my 23rd birthday and I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by! Twenty three years kind of sounds like a long time, doesn't it? For this post, I decided to wait until my actual birthday because I want to share with you 10 things you might not already know about me! It's kind of like a 'get to know me' post and I'd also love if you'd leave a comment telling me something I might not know about yourself!
Happy Earth Day friends! Today, inspired by my mom, I'm writing about plants, houseplants in particular. These delicate green organisms have some not-so-obvious benefits you may not have thought of. I, having not been blessed with my mother's green thumb, have killed my fair share of cacti and succulents. But with the help of my friend Marlie, I've been able to keep two plants alive, one of them for about a year! It's been surprisingly quite rewarding and I thought I should share my thoughts on these little green pals.
As inspired by a blog post written by my all-time-favorite blogger, Megan Ellaby, I wanted to reflect and send a note to my younger self. Hopefully this might help some of the younger people reading my blog dealing with messy issues associated with growing up, like finding yourself, learning to love yourself, and blocking those haterz haha. Your teens and even early twenties are a time of change, turmoil, and a little chaos, so here's my letter to my younger self.
Good morning and happy Easter to those that celebrate! (I hope you're all eating extra chocolate today!) Inspired by my recent discovery of the show Westworld (I know I'm late, but if you have not seen it and like futuristic shows, seriously get on it!), I decided to dedicate a post to the western-inspired trends that have been gracing the fashion world as of late.
Although Western trends were showing up on runways starting last winter, they were absolutely ruling the AW18 runways all over the world, including fashion houses I really admire like House of Holland, Calvin Klein, and Topshop. Cowboy couture is a fairly easy trend to try out and you probably already have some of these trends in your wardrobe! Here's how you can conquer fashion's new frontier.
There is a common misconception that fashion has to be uncomfortable, but today I'm here to bust that myth. Now, more than ever, comfort is becoming key. Along with the rise of athleisure (activewear made fashion-forward), comfort is driving a lot on and off the runways as of late. Louis Vuitton just brought out a pair of tennis shoes for goodness sake!...albeit not everyone's cup of tea. Fashion is clearly changing, and for those of you that have steered away from 'fashionable' items because they might be uncomfortable, now is your time to shine!
In wake of this, I thought it would be super helpful to talk about which comfortable, athleisure pieces to incorporate into your style, while still looking put together. Comfort and trendiness can go hand-in-hand, especially because, chancing are if it's comfortable, you're going to wear it more.
How has your weekend been this week? A lot of people are on spring break this week or next, so comment down below if you went or are going anywhere cool! Spring break means it's officially spring right?..even if it might snow this week lol.
Today, in celebration of the blooming spring flowers, we're talking all things color. After doing some research on last month's various fashion weeks, upcoming decor trends, and Pantone's official color forecast, I've created a condensed guide to the colors you need to be rocking this spring and which ones will suit you the best!
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and have survived this colder than expected March weather, especially if you were hit by the, so called, Beast from the East! Luckily, we made it out here with only a couple smaller flurries and a drop in temperature. Our trees are still blooming, as you can see! Today, I thought it would be a great idea to talk about you can re-style and recycle your New Year's Eve, Christmas, and other party dresses to make them more casual and spring appropriate! Wearing dresses in a casual way is one of my favorite outfits.
How are you all doing on this dreary Sunday? Hopefully you've had a restful and fun filled weekend. As per request, I thought I would highlight some of my beloved shoes and some cheeky little tips I used to build my current shoe collection.
It's finally February! We made it through one of the longest months of the year. Congrats! This week, in light of recent women's marches that went on throughout the world a couple weeks ago, I thought I would talk about how we can better support the community of women in our lives. Whether that be the women in your workplace, an online community of women you've never met, or just your closest confidants and best of friends, we should all have each others' backs! You might not have made it to a women's march near you, but here's how you can support women on a smaller, but still important, scale.
I hope you're all doing well on this dreary January morning. Has this not been the longest month ever? It feels like it will never end, and I don't know about you, but we've been having some not-so-lovely weather! Instead of crisp, frosty mornings, we've been having soggy grey ones.
Because of the less than cheerful weather and this never-ending month after the holiday season, I know many of you, like me, is getting a bit bored or feeling uninspired when it comes to your wardrobe. You've probably even resulted to wearing black everyday, which, while easy, can also be quite unexciting. Not to fear though, I'm challenging you to reinvent the way we all wear black.
(My friend from high school, Miranda Meyers took these amazing shots for me, and they're honestly some of my favorites to date. We had so much fun creating these photos and chatting all afternoon! I've been wanting to work with her for ages now. Head over to her blog and instagram and give her amazing work some love.)
After a little holiday break from blogging last week, I'm back on the ball with a new post for you! This one is all about the challenges I'm setting for myself in 2018! Read along and see if you'd like to stick to any of these resolutions yourself and we might just make 2018 the best year yet!
This fall I've been experimenting with different types of accessories and how to style them successfully. Although I'm quite a minimalist when it comes to accessories, I do like to add touches here and there. After researching how all of the most fashionable of fashion bloggers are styling their accessories, I've come up with my tips for successfully embellishing without going overboard!
How has your weekend been? I hope it's been great and comment below what you've been up to. Last week I talked about some of the most inspiring women in my life, so if you haven't read that yet, check it out here! This week I wanted to talk about one of my favorite outfits right now and why I think it works.
