Oh ya, remember these?? Obviously I realize that I have already graduated, but like a true high school graduate, I procrastinated the hell out of it! So ya, enjoy.
For the second & third shoots Maddy and I did, we wanted to do something very grungy yet urban with a little bit of a formal flare. With those crazy thoughts in mind, we found the perfect locations for the vibe we wanted. I wanted to do places that were very unique and distinct in their own ways. A 7/11, an abandoned warehouse/equipment, and a random alley became the perfect result of what two crazy minds can think of. I love every single image posted and I’m so so grateful to Maddy for taking them! Have a great week and stay fab!
This was my first time at Knott’s Berry Farm and i was very pleased with how it turned out! I love crazy roller coasters and the ones here did not disappoint! Also, the chicken dinner I devoured while there was phenomenal!!! For my look I wanted something yet again very simple and comfortable, so I threw on some 560’s and a white tee and called it good. I added a belt and my maroon windbreaker to kind of take it up a notch, but overall I loved how simple and easy the outfit was! Also, this leather backpack that I thrifts was my lifeline in Cali because it is super cute but also very convenient and useful. Have a great weekend and stay fab!

In my family, one day of Disney is never enough. We have to go at least two days to get our full fix. So for the second day I chose an outfit that was equally as simple as the day prior, but still had a little bit of an elevated edge to it. I chose the same Levis 550s from our day to Hollywood and paired them with my new H&M tee from their all unisex line. If it isn’t already obvious, the elevated piece in this look is the mock neck style of the white tee. And let me just say that I admired H&M before but after this collection was released I knew that this was my favorite store for a reason. Any brand that would throw caution to the wind and release a collection knowing it would cause controversy and backlash is so wonderful to me. So props to everyone responsible for the Uni Collection! Have a great weekend and stay fab!
For the second day of our trip we hit up my absolute favorite place on earth: DISNEYLAND! There is no place on the planet that I love more than Disneyland. I’m at my absolute happiest when I’m in the park. From the thrilling rides, to the cute and nostalgic movie themed rides, to the overwhelming amount of churros I consumed, there was absolutely not a single dull moment for me. For my outfit I wanted something very Californian but still comfortable and me. I cut my favorite Levis 501s because, why not? And threw on a cropped white tee and a flannel to give it a Californian side. And clearly no Californian fit would be complete without my vans! Have a great week and stay fab!

For my first day in California my family and I got to Anaheim and relaxed for a bit then headed straight to Hollywood. None of us had ever actually stopped and explored Hollywood so we figured now was as good a time as ever. It was extremely hectic and I loved every second. I’m most definitely a big city person so being there was a great time for me. I chose my simple/classic uniform, but with a little bit of an elevated edge. I cut the sleeves off of a cropped sweater I had and paired with some great fitting 550 shorts & my fav H&M sneakers. I also added my new brown snakeskin metal tip belt that I thrifted and am completely obsessed with. I think the belt was the perfect finishing touch to this look! A statement belt or a short sleeved sweatshirt are great pieces to elevate an outfit just a little more to make it a tad less casual. Have a great week and stay fab!

California HERE I COME!! In just two days I will be taking my senior trip to California and I couldn’t be more giddy! It’s been almost 4 years since I was last there!! Not only is it my family’s home state, but it’s where all of my moms side of the family still resides and I’m ECSTATIC that I get to see them all again.
I actually just finished getting all of my outfits together (which I will be sharing regularly so keep your eyes open) and let me just say, it’s gonna be a denim extravaganza! I packed so many pairs of Levis shorts, that I honestly don’t know how my suitcase closed. I’ve been on the prowl hardcore for the past couple weeks for some killer denim shorts and I finally accumulated the collection I envisioned! In case you give a shit, I packed 6 pairs of Levis shorts and 4 white tees (not sorry). Not only did I round up shorts, but I rounded up an assortment of pics ( see below) that I’m getting a lot of inspiration from currently. My mind is filled with pics I’ll take, places I’ll visit, and the food I’ll eat etc. so if you know me don’t expect me to stop talking about any of that until I return. So I will be going to Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm, Los Angeles (super pumped about that) and ending in our hometown of San Diego. If anyone has any insanely dope recommendations for any of the places I’m going (whether it be food, clothes, beaches, rides) pleaselet me know in the comments! Have a great week and stay fab!
“the crowd erupts in applause, but we can’t hear them”
Lemonade. Or the piece of art that changed my life immensely. I will never ever forget the day of its release, I was anxious, impatient, and riveted. The amount of excitement I had was too much to handle and I didn’t know how to verbalize any of it. From the second I saw her in the field wearing a hoodie/gown hybrid, I knew I was in for a life changing experience. At the time of its release I was about to finish my junior year in high school and I was stressed and timid, and somehow it made everything seem ok. The music pulled me in and shook up my understanding of love, forgiveness, racism, empowerment, and heartbreak. To see a woman so powerful and successful, take an uncomfortable and relevant subject like cheating and channel it into art was so astounding. Getting to see, hear and every feel a deeper level of Beyonce’s life was so humbling and I’m forever grateful to her for letting me experience it. While the ultimate break up songs like “Sorry” and “Don’t hurt yourself” we’re an amazing addition to the cheating theme, but if you look too closely into Jay’s possible infidelity, you’ll lose the true meaning of the album. The album was about forgiving someone for ruining you and to stand up for your rights and to be proud of who you are and where you’re from. I will be forever grateful to Beyonce and for her vision and execution of the greatest album of all time.
Now that you know how much Lemonade means to me, I’ll give you the fashion and fun part of this post. Last night I celebrated….wait for it……….MY GRADUATION!!!!!! Yes that’s right, you’re reading a high school graduate’s blog right now! I’m so excited that I’m done with high school forever and can’t wait to start my life! So about that party, it was such an amazing time and I wish I could do it everyday! All my closest friends and family were present and I was surrounded by so much love and I’m so grateful for the people that showed up and slayed! Being me, I asked all my guests to “serve a look” because I’m very into people throwing caution to the wind and pulling out all the stops for an outfit! I ordered this jumpsuit from ASOS after having fallen in love with it weeks before! It’s one of the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn and I don’t regret wearing it for a second! Obviously the party was Lemonade themed (argo the prologue) and I’m so happy with how everything turned out! Thank you to everyone for coming and serving and for being so loving and supportive!!!! Catch the looks below 😉 and have a great week!
