"NO SCRUBS"

HEY LOVES! 
IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THURSDAY! :) WELL HERE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. IT WAS RAINING LAST NIGHT BUT NOW THE CLOUDS HAVE OPENED UP AND THE SUN IS SHINING! YAY! I'M SO EXCITED BECAUSE I HAVE ONE MORE DAY TILL I'M OFF TO VEGAS TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY! :P 


BUT ANYWAYS, THIS MONDAY MY FRIEND MADDIE TOOK ME TO THIS COOL SPOT TO SHOOT SOME PICTURES OF ME IN MY OUTFIT. SHE'S AN ASPIRING PHOTOGRAPHER SO ANY TIME SHE HAS TO TAKE MY PICTURES, I TAKE HER UP ON THE OFFER! SHE HAS THAT EYE THAT GOOD PHOTOGRAPHERS HAVE AND THE PICTURES ALWAYS COME OUT AMAZING! :D I'M THANKFUL THAT SHE'S MY FRIEND. <3 

SO IN THIS 'OUTFIT OF THE DAY' I'M WEARING THIS TLC OVER SIZED SHIRT THAT I BOUGHT FROM H&M RECENTLY! I GREW UP LISTENING TO TLC SO I HAD TO HAVE IT AND IT'S MY FAVORITE COLOR! :D I LIKED THAT IT WAS OVER SIZED BUT I HAD ENVISIONED MYSELF TO WEAR IT ALMOST LIKE A DRESS WITH SOME SNEAKERS. I COULD HAVE ALSO SWAPPED MY CONVERSE WITH MY TIMBERLANDS AND THE OUTFIT WOULD STILL BE "STREET STYLE." BUT I FELT LIKE I HAVE BEEN WEARING MY TIMBS A LOT SO I WENT WITH MY WHITE CONVERSE. TO KEEP FROM FEELING TOO NAKED I PUT ON SOME HIGH WAIST CUT UP LEVI'S SHORTS UNDER TO GIVE IT AN EVEN MORE RELAXED FEEL. THESE SHORTS WERE ACTUALLY PANTS THAT I HAD GOTTEN FROM GOODWILL AND I CUT THEM UP TO BE HIGH WAIST SHORTS, DIY! MUCH CHEAPER THAT WAY! TO ADD ANOTHER POP OF COLOR I WORE MY "RIRI WOO" RED LIPSTICK FROM MAC. IT'S SO BRIGHT AND IT'S ALSO MATTE WHICH I LOVEE! 

WE TOOK THESE PICS AS THE SUN WAS GOING DOWN AND I FEEL LIKE WE GOT SOME PRETTY GOOD SHOTS. I HOPE YOU LIKE THEM AS MUCH AS I DO! <3 SORRY FOR THE PICTURE OVERLOAD, I JUST REALLY LOVE THESE SHOTS! :D

SPRING READY!

HAPPY MONDAY LOVES! 

I WAS ENJOYING THE LAST BITS OF THE SUN! :D
IT'S THE START OF A NEW WEEK AND TIME TO FOCUS ON NEW GOALS FOR THE WEEK. I'M PRETTY EXCITED BECAUSE MY BIRTHDAY IS NEXT WEEK! I'LL BE 23! :O TIME GOES BY SO FAST. I'M EXCITED BECAUSE I WILL BE GOING TO VEGAS THIS WEEKEND TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE AS AN ADULT! ;) I'LL BE SURE TO TAKE LOTS OF PICTURES TO POST UP A PHOTO DIARY. <3

ANYWAY, SPRING IS RAPIDLY APPROACHING! ALTHOUGH I FEEL LIKE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A WINTER ANYWAY. BUT TO BE HONEST, I'M A FAN OF THE WARMER DAYS! ;) I'VE BEEN SEEING A LOT OF SPRING TRENDS GOING AROUND AND I DECIDED TO JOIN IN. THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT SPRING THAT PUTS ME IN A GOOD MOOD. TIME FOR NEW CHANGES, FLOWERS BLOOMING, AND WARMER WEATHER! 

IN TODAY'S 'OUTFIT OF THE DAY' I HAD MY MIND SET ON WEARING THIS FLORAL DRESS I HAD GOTTEN FROM FOREVER 21 MONTHS AGO. AT THE TIME I WAS REALLY SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT FLORAL DRESS AND I REALLY LIKED THIS ONE. IT DID FIT A BIT LOOSE WHEN I FIRST GOT IT, BUT NOTHING A BELT AT THE WAIST CAN'T FIX! ;) A TIP FOR YOU GIRLS! I CHOSE A SIMPLE BLACK BELT THAT I FOUND AT TARGET. THE THING I LIKE ABOUT THIS BELT IS THE DESIGN OF IT HAS HOLES SO I CAN MAKE THIS BELT HOWEVER SMALL OR BIG I WANT. IT'S MORE VERSATILE FOR ME TO USE. I CAN CINCH MY WAIST ON DRESSES WITH IT OR USE IT AS A BELT FOR PANTS! THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS. 

I WAS A BIT IFFY ON WEARING THESE RED JELLY FLATS WITH THE DRESS BECAUSE IN MY MIND THEY KIND OF MATCHED BUT KIND OF DIDN'T. BUT I DECIDED TO JUST GO FOR IT AND I'M HAPPY I DID! I FELT LIKE THE RED MADE THE PINK FLOWERS OF THE DRESS POP! <3 IT WAS A SIMPLE YET STANDOUT OUTFIT FOR ME. THOSE ARE THE BEST! I'VE WORN THIS DRESS PREVIOUSLY HERE ON MY INSTAGRAM IF YOU'D LIKE TO TAKE A LOOK. I DEFINITELY FEEL ACCOMPLISHED WHEN I FIGURE OUT HOW TO WEAR PIECES MORE THAN ONCE IN DIFFERENT WAYS. :)

TOMBOY TENDENCIES.

HEY LOVES! 
I'VE BEEN SLACKING ON THE OUTFITS THIS PAST WEEK, I KNOW! :/
IT'S BEEN OVER A WEEK SINCE MY LAST POST; NEVER AGAIN! :D
TOMORROW IS FRIDAY YAY! 


IN THIS OUTFIT I AM WEARING MY TIMBERLAND BOOTS AGAIN. I WANTED TO SHOW YOU HOW THERE ARE PLENTY OF WAYS TO WEAR THEM! TO ME THIS OUTFIT IS A CROSS BETWEEN GIRLY BECAUSE OF THE SKIRT AND TOMBOY BECAUSE OF THE BOOTS! WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I WAS A TOTAL TOMBOY! :D HARD TO BELIEVE, I KNOW! 

I STARTED OFF REALLY WANTING TO WEAR THIS BLACK BODYSUIT FROM FOREVER 21! I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE PERFECT TO WEAR IT WITH THIS CIRCLE SKIRT I BOUGHT FROM AMERICAN APPAREL MONTHS AGO. NOW, I KNOW AMERICAN APPAREL IS DEFINITELY ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE BUT SOMETIMES I'LL SPLURGE ON A PIECE OR TWO BECAUSE I END UP WEARING IT A LOT! TO ME, IF I SPLURGE BUT I USE THE ITEM A LOT IT JUSTIFIES MY PURCHASE! 

THE SKIRT IS DEFINITELY FLIRTY AND I LIKE IT. I THOUGHT OF WEARING MY TIMBS AGAIN BECAUSE I WANTED TO MAKE THE OUTFIT A LITTLE BIT MORE BOYISH! WEARING THE BOOTS WITH SOCKS IS A MUST FOR ME, I DON'T KNOW WHY. :P IF I FELT A LITTLE BIT TOO REVEALING WITH THIS BODYSUIT (IT IS A BIT RISQUE!) I PUT ON THIS FLOWER KIMONO THAT I WORE PREVIOUSLY HERE. IT MADE ME FEEL A BIT COVERED UP OR JUST IN CASE IT GOT TOO CHILLY! I LIKE TO DRESS OUT OF MY ELEMENT SOMETIMES AND I LIKED THE EXTRA UMPHH THE KIMONO ADDED TO THE OUTFIT. :)

IN MY TIMBS.

HEY LOVES! 
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! 
I'M HERE WITH ANOTHER 'OUTFIT OF THE DAY' 

A LITTLE SELFIE FUN AFTER TAKING OUTFIT PICS! ;)

I WASN'T ACTUALLY GOING TO TAKE ANY PICTURES OF TODAY'S OUTFIT BUT A FOLLOWER ACTUALLY INSPIRED ME TO DO SO! :) SHE REQUESTED THAT I DO AN OUTFIT WEARING MY TIMBERLANDS AND IT JUST SO HAPPENED THAT I WAS WEARING THEM TODAY! SO THIS OUTFIT IS FOR HER! <3

FIRST OFF, HOW DO YOU GUYS FEEL ABOUT TIMBERLANDS?! I BOUGHT THEM A WHILE AGO WHEN I FIRST STARTED SEEING THEM AROUND AND HAVE IMPLEMENTING THEM INTO MY WARDROBE. I, FOR ONE LOVEE TIMBS! THEY'RE THE PERFECT MIX BETWEEN STREET AND EDGY! OF COURSE WHEN I FIRST GOT THEM I HAD ONLY A COUPLE IDEAS ON WHAT TO WEAR THEM WITH BUT AS THE MONTHS HAVE GONE BY AND MY STYLE KEPT EVOLVING, I'VE GOTTEN BETTER AT COMING UP WITH OUTFITS. 




THIS ONE IN MY OPINION IS VERY PLAIN JANE BUT STILL GIVES OFF THAT STREET VIBE; WHICH I LIKE TO ROCK FROM TIME TO TIME. I RECENTLY BOUGHT THESE HIGH WAISTED JEANS FROM H&M WHICH I LOVEE! I GOT THEM IN BLACK FIRST. I WANTED TO WEAR THEM WITH A CROP TOP OF COURSE. BUT INSTEAD OF GOING FOR THE USUAL TIGHT CROP TOP I DECIDED TO DO "FLOWY." THIS TOP IS FROM VANS AGES AGO! THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OUTFIT TO START OFF WITH IF YOU'RE BARELY STEPPING OUT IN YOUR TIMBS. SAFE BUT STILL GREAT! IT'S THAT "WHITE TEE" LOOK. ;) IF I GOT A LITTLE CHILLY I WORE THIS OLIVE GREEN BOMBER JACKET I BOUGHT FROM H&M. ANYTHING WHITE OR NEUTRAL COLORS GOES GOOD WITH THE TIMBS IN MY OPINION. :) TO KEEP THE OUTFIT FROM FEELING TOO SIMPLE I ADDED THE NECKLACE FOR SOME SPARKLE. I'M OBSESSING OVER THIS NAME NECKLACE FROM H&M, AND IT WAS ONLY $7.95! SCORE! :D
