SWEATER WEATHER ON THIS GLOOMY DAY.

HEY LOVES! 
HAPPY FRIDAY! WE MADE IT! :) AND NOW IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE! WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING THIS WEEKEND? ANYTHING FUN? BESIDES THE SUPER BOWL! :P



TODAY WAS A WEIRD DAY IN CALIFORNIA. ONE MINUTE THE SKY IS LOOKING BEAUTIFULLY CLOUDY LIKE THIS

(ISN'T THAT PRETTY?)
AND THE NEXT MINUTE IT GETS DARK AND GLOOMY! :( BUT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT SWEATERS ARE FOR RIGHT?! THEY DON'T CALL IT SWEATER WEATHER FOR NOTHING! :) SO I DECIDED TO WEAR ONE OF MY NEW CLOTHING ITEMS FROM H&M THAT I PREVIOUSLY SHOWED YOU GUYS IN MY HAUL! I WENT WITH THE MUSTARD YELLOW SWEATER FOR A POP OF COLOR! JUST BECAUSE IT'S DARK AND GLOOMY DOESN'T MEAN I HAVE TO BE! :D 

WHEN IT CAME TO THE JEANS I WENT WITH MY FAVORITE AND ONLY PAIR OF BOYFRIEND JEANS FROM FOREVER 21! IT TOOK ME FOREVER TO FIND THE PERFECT PAIR OF BOYFRIEND JEANS BEING THAT I AM PETITE! BUT I FOUND THESE BABIES RECENTLY AND FELL IN LOVE! THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT BOYFRIEND JEANS THAT I LOVE! MAYBE IT'S THE BAGGY LOOK AND FEEL TO THEM THAT GIVES YOU THAT LAID BACK YET PUT TOGETHER LOOK? TOTAL OXYMORON! :D TO KEEP IT ON THE CASUAL SIDE I SLIPPED ON MY PLATFORM WHITE SNEAKERS FROM H&M THAT I PURCHASED AWHILE AGO. THE JEANS WITH THE WHITE SNEAKERS SCREAMED CALIFORNIA CASUAL TO ME; IT WAS PERFECT! 

I WORE MY HAIR IN A HIGH TOP KNOT BUN JUST BECAUSE I WANTED TO AVOID THE WIND BLOWING MY HAIR IN MY FACE ALL DAY, DON'T YOU HATE THAT SOMETIMES?! 

ANYWAYS, WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE OUTFIT?! WOULD YOU WEAR SOMETHING LIKE THIS?! LET ME KNOW, I'D LOVE TO INTERACT WITH YOU! :D

OVERALL FUN

HEY LOVES! 
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! WE'RE HALFWAY THROUGH THE WEEK AND ALMOST TO THAT FRIDAY! :D YAY! 


TODAY I WANTED TO SHARE YET ANOTHER 'OUTFIT OF THE DAY'! OF COURSE I'M WEARING MY PLATFORM BOOTIES THAT I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO GET ENOUGH OF! :) I GOT THIS OVERALL DRESS FROM H&M AWHILE AGO AND I LOVED IT SOO MUCH BECAUSE OF IT'S FLIRTY BOTTOM! (AND THE FACT THAT THEY WERE OVERALLS WAS ALSO A PLUS!) I DID HAVE TO TAKE A SPIN IN THIS DRESS, I FELT SO GIRLY AND "FLOWY!" I PAIRED THE DRESS WITH THIS GREY + DARK GREY CROP TOP, ALSO FROM H&M TO CONTRAST FROM ALL THE BLACK. THEN BAM! I ADDED THE BOOTIES AND IT WAS A DONE DEAL. THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THESE PLATFORM BOOTIES THAT I FEEL I HAVE TO PAIR THEM WITH A SKATER DRESS OR SKIRT! IT'S JUST A MUST! :) TO MAKE THE OUTFIT A LITTLE MORE EDGY, I ADDED THE LONG SOCKS! 

EVER SINCE OVERALLS STARTED TO COME BACK ONTO THE FASHION SCENE I HAVE BEEN TOTALLY OPEN TO BRINGING THEM BACK INTO MY WARDROBE! I THINK THEY'RE TOTALLY CUTE! WHETHER IT BE OVERALL DRESS, SHORTS, OR PANTS, I'M IN! :)

HOW ABOUT YOU GUYS?! ARE YOU IN ON THE OVERALL TREND OR NOT? LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS THINK OF THIS OUTFIT! AND TELL ME IF YOU'RE TIRED OF THESE BLACK BOOTIES YET! :P I CAN NEVER BE! 
LEAVE ME SOMETHING! I'D LOVE TO INTERACT WITH YOU! :D

A LITTLE SHOPPING NEVER HURT ANYBODY.

HEY LOVES! 
HAPPY MONDAY! 
IT'S THE START OF YET ANOTHER MONDAY AND IT'S THE PERFECT DAY TO  PREPARE AND CONQUER ANOTHER WEEK IN THIS YEAR! :) 
AS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE I TOO USE TO DREAD MONDAYS BUT AS THE TIME HAS GONE ON, I'VE STARTED TO LIKE THEM. TO ME, IT'S ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO START FRESH AND TACKLE ANOTHER WEEK WITH NEW GOALS! WE ALWAYS GET A NEW START WHEN WE WAKE UP EVERYDAY WITH FRESH EYES; SO WITH ANOTHER WEEK, WE'RE TWICE AS LUCKY! 

ANY-WHO, I DID SOME SHOPPING A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND I THOUGHT I'D SHARE WHAT MADE IT'S WAY INTO MY SHOPPING BAGS! AS IF I DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH CLOTHES ALREADY. :P MY FOCUS THIS TIME AROUND WAS TO VENTURE OUT AND BUY MORE "BASIC" CLOTHING. I FEEL AS THOUGH EVERY TIME I LOOK IN MY CLOSET I HAVE MORE OUT STANDING CLOTHES RATHER THAN THE BASICS. THESE ITEMS ARE MAINLY FROM H&M AND FOREVER 21, MY MOST SHOPPED STORES. I FEEL LIKE I GOT A GOOD AMOUNT OF STUFF AND I'M DEFINITELY HAPPY WITH MY PURCHASES. :)

FIRST OFF, I JUMPED AT THE CHANCE WHEN I SEEN THESE BELOVED LEATHER FLAT BOOTIES! I MEAN, COME ON, AREN'T THEY BEAUTIFUL?! TO BE HONEST, FOREVER 21 IS DEFINITELY AMPING UP THEIR GAME IN THE SHOE DEPARTMENT. AS SOON AS I SEEN THESE I HAD TO HAVE THEM. I COULD ALREADY PICTURE MYSELF WEARING THEM WITH SOME CUFFED BOYFRIEND JEANS AND A CUTE BLOUSE! CHECK OUT THAT OUTFIT HERE ON MY INSTAGRAM! I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MORE USE OUT OF THEM! :)


FIND THEM HERE

I SPOTTED THESE BLACK PLATFORM BOOTIES ON THE H&M WEBSITE AND IMMEDIATELY WANTED THEM! THEY'RE SO "SPICE GIRL" IN A MODERN WAY! AS YOU SAW IN MY LAST POST I WORE THEM WITH A DRESS AND MIGHT I ADD THEY ARE VERY COMFORTABLE! I ALSO PLAN ON WEARING THEM WITH PLENTY OF SKATER SKIRTS & MORE DRESSES! 


THEY'RE NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE BUT I RECOMMEND YOU CHECK AN H&M STORE. I FOUND THEM HERE BUT A BIT MORE EXPENSIVE. 

I HAD WENT TO FOREVER 21 TO RETURN SOMETHING AND ENDED UP COMING OUT WITH A LOT MORE STUFF, BUT I'M SURE I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE THIS HAPPENS TO. ;) HERE IS A NECKLACE THAT I CAME ACROSS AND LIKED INSTANTLY! I HAVE A LOT OF NECKLACES BUT NONE LIKE THIS WHICH MADE ME PICK IT UP! 


PAIR IT WITH A SOLID COLOR BUTTON UP AND LET THE NECKLACE BE THE FOCUS OF THE OUTFIT! ;) 

ALONG WITH THE NECKLACE I PICKED UP THESE OTHER PIECES FROM FOREVER 21! 




 

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST HERE ARE THE REST OF THE ITEMS FROM H&M! 






I CAN'T WAIT TO WEAR THEM! DON'T YOU JUST LOVE WEARING NEW CLOTHES?! :D
LET ME KNOW WHICH ITEM IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHICH PIECE YOU'D LIKE FOR ME TO STYLE FIRST! LEAVE ME SOMETHING! I'D LOVE TO INTERACT WITH YOU! :D

WINTER IN CALIFORNIA

HAPPY SUNDAY! :)

TODAY WAS A BIT OF A CASUAL SUNDAY FOR ME! I USUALLY TRY TO AVOID WEARING JEANS FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT I FEEL CONSTRICTED WEARING THEM... BUT I'M NOW TRYING TO IMPLEMENT THEM INTO MY WARDROBE A BIT MORE. TODAY'S OUTFIT WAS ANOTHER OUTFIT THAT I PUT TOGETHER IN UNDER 5 MINUTES (NOT MY USUAL TIME HAHA) AND I HAVE TO SAY I LOVED IT! I FIRST BROUGHT OUT THESE STEVE MADDEN FLATS AND WORKED MY OUTFIT FROM THERE. I WANTED TO LOOK A BIT SOFT AND CASUAL. INSTEAD OF GOING FOR THE USUAL JEAN + WHITE T-SHIRT LOOK, I WENT INTO MY CLOSET AND BROUGHT OUT THIS "SUMMERY" CROCHET TOP THAT I BOUGHT A LONG TIME AGO (NOT TOO SURE FROM WHERE). I WANTED THE BROWN SHOES TO POP A BIT MORE SO I ADDED AN EVERYDAY BROWN BELT TO MY ENSEMBLE AND VOILA, I WAS READY! FOR A BIT OF AN EXTRA TOUCH, I ADDED A DAINTY CROSS NECKLACE FROM FOREVER 21. I LOVE WHEN I'M WEARING A CASUAL OUTFIT BUT I STILL DON'T FEEL TOO PLAIN JANE. IN MY OPINION, I ALWAYS LIKE TO STAND OUT A BIT WITH MY OUTFITS. YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO DRESSED UP FOR ANYTHING! :D LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK AND LEAVE ME SOMETHING! I'D LOVE TO INTERACT WITH YOU!

TAKING MY NEW CAMERA OUT FOR A SPIN!

HEY LOVES! 

NOW I KNOW I TOOK A BIT OF A HIATUS BUT I FINALLY GOT MYSELF A DSLR CAMERA AND LET ME SAY, I AM IN LOVEE! I GOT MY HANDS ON THE CANON REBEL T3i; IT IS BEAUTIFUL! WITH A NEW CAMERA, IT'S TIME FOR MORE OUTFIT AND FASHION POSTS! I TOOK MY FIRST 'OUTFIT OF THE DAY' TODAY WITH MY CAMERA..LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! ;) 

NOW DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THOSE OUTFITS THAT COME TO YOU SO QUICKLY AND EFFORTLESSLY?! THIS OUTFIT WAS ONE OF THOSE FOR ME! I GOT THIS WHITE SEMI-FORMAL DRESS FROM FOREVER 21 A WHILE BACK FOR MY FRIEND'S BLACK AND WHITE PARTY. I LOOKED AT IT IN MY CLOSET AND WANTED TO WEAR IT AGAIN BUT FOR WORK (A MORE CASUAL SETTING). I WAS WONDERING HOW I COULD DRESS IT DOWN AND LOW AND BEHOLD, I REMEMBERED I RECENTLY GOT THIS FLORAL PRINT KIMONO FROM H&M FOR $7! SCORE! I LAYERED THE KIMONO ON TOP AND BAM! THE OUTFIT WAS SET! I ADDED THIS BLUE JEWEL CROSS I HAD FOR YEARS FOR ANOTHER POP OF COLOR. AS FOR THE SHOES, I WANTED TO WEAR OUT MY NEW BLACK PLATFORM BOOTIES (ALSO FROM H&M) SO I ADDED THEM TO THE OUTFIT AND IT WAS A DONE DEAL! :D I FEEL LIKE THIS LOOK DEFINITELY CAME OUT TO BE EDGY/GRUNGY WHICH I LIKED BECAUSE IT WAS DIFFERENT FOR ME! IT'S ALWAYS GOOD IN MY BOOK WHEN I FIND DIFFERENT WAYS TO WEAR OLDER PIECES! :) LET ME KNOW IF YOU LOVED IT AS MUCH AS I DID!
