In The Night


Sometimes, simple is better. In this certain case, it definitely is. I have been on a hunt for a sleeveless vest or trench in either black or green and low and behold, I find a cute one at Ross. Who would have known? I loved it so much I had to wear it right away. (That's how you know the love is real.) I went simple and did the whole white v neck and black jean look. I wanted the vest to be the main focus, I mean how could it not be? I kept the edgy chic by adding my heel leather booties from H&M. Although I do live for my color and more than just simple outfits, I loved the way this came out and it reminded me how less is sometimes more. Hope you like the look!

Addicted


If a shoeaholic class existed, I would definitely be in one. So it's not coincidence that this shirt was pretty much made for me. I tried counting how many shoes I had one time and I think I got almost to 200; crazy, I know! But would I change it? Hell no! I love all kinds of shoes and there's no such thing and too many shoes. So if you want to call me an addict, so be it! When I spotted this tee at Marshalls I instantly had to have it. 1, I love graphic tees and 2, it describes me perfectly. I tried to keep it casual and just threw on my go to jeans from Zara and since it was chilly out I threw on my bomber jacket from H&M. If I didn't know any better, it looks like I'm stuck in the Fall season. But hey, no one's complaining!

Motivation Monday

I hear it everywhere; you can have anything you want as long as you believe. Seems simple enough right? The hardest part is the part that requires faith. It seems that we were born to only believe in the negative and how possibly unnatural it is to think otherwise. I know from experience that it IS indeed hard to get your head wrapped around the idea. But one thing that I've realized is that both fear and faith require you to believe in something you can't see, it all depends on which one you want to give your energy too. Now, I know we're all smarter than that so we know that it is better to have faith. Faith and really trying to convince yourself that you are capable of things you never deemed possible is the biggest hump to get across, but it is the one that will get you to where you want to be.
ANYTHING in life can be yours. All it takes is hard work, dedication, focus, and a whole lot of faith! If things came to us so easily, we would never really hold the value in them once we get to the achievements. We wouldn't know the value of hard work and dedication. If things were easy then everyone would have them. It is up to those who think a certain way, believe a certain way, and act a certain way to get to their destinations. Do me a favor; before you expect anyone to be in your corner, rooting you on, become your own biggest fan first. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Know that what you want, you deserve and it will only be yours if you show the world you're worthy of having those desires. Nothing comes easy! Once you've convinced yourself of what can be, there's no stopping you. Nothing or no one can tell you otherwise. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible!
HAPPY MONDAY!

DIY Flower Crown for under $10 VIDEO

Happy Saturday! I hope you all are doing well. I finally got around to editing my DIY video that I made awhile back. I went to Hard Day of The Dead back in November and I decided that I wanted to make my own flower crown to wear. Low and behold, I found all the supplies needed at The Dollar Tree for under $10! SCORE! Of course, I had to film and share it with you all so you can make your own and save yourself the extra money that you would spend buying it from the store. Enjoy the video!

The Lovely Look Turns 2


When I first started my blog, it was simply an expansion of my #ootd journey on Instagram. I never imagined going full blogger mode and continuing this journey in other directions. Like a total noob, I forgot my first blogaversary last year so I had to make sure I remembered this year. It's like how could you forget your baby's first birthday? This blog is something close to that because I put my time, energy, and focus into this. The best part about it is that till this day since I've started, I can honestly still say that I enjoy every minute of this. I don't see myself stopping and I couldn't imagine what else I would be doing in my free time if I wasn't thinking or working on my blog. 

It wasn't until 2 years ago around this time where I got serious and got my first DSLR camera, stopped taking pictures with my iPhone and started writing more than just captions to my outfits. Comparing myself now to my first real outfit post on this blog, I see that so many things have changed and I enjoy that I've been able to evolve and grow. I now know the meaning of great lighting (haha), angles, and everything else that comes along with putting together an outfit post. It's crazy to me that the saying rings true, "Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different?" 


Having a blog to me has nothing to do with me thinking that I'm a professional dresser or that I know everything about fashion. It's more about displaying my taste in style and showing the world what I have to offer. I want people to see how I put outfits together and realize that they can do the same. I enjoy having a voice to my name and continuing my journey on YouTube as well. It's a great feeling to build yourself and your name and in reality gain friends throughout the process. This is definitely what this is to me, building friendships with the people who constantly come back to my page to view my content. I am forever grateful for those that do. 

Fashion is something I enjoy immensely and the directions are infinite in which this can go. I was given some of the most memorable opportunities that I never imagined possible since starting this blog and this will be in my heart forever. All the collaborations and the brands who have reached out to me and whom have worked with has seriously been such an honor. From meeting Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars (my favorite show) and interviewing her about her clothing line, to shooting with Robert Wayne and modeling their shoes, or to getting my picture in Seventeen Magazine along with my name; moments like those made me realize how lucky I am and how happy I am to be doing this. 

I hope to one day make this blog my career and to be able to say I LOVE MY JOB. "When you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day in your life." That is my ultimate goal and I know that anything is possible as long as you have the passion and will for it. So much greatness in such a short amount of 2 years and I'm definitely ready for more. I just want to say THANK YOU for reading this and following me along on this journey. Thank you for visiting my page time and time again. Thank you for the likes and comments, I'm so grateful! In which ever direction this blog goes, I know that it's meant for me. This is definitely only the beginning. So here it is; Dear Future, I'm ready!
