Month: December 2017

12/25/17

As I write this, I lay in bed wide awake with no hope of sleep anytime soon. It just so happens that it’s also Christmas Day as of an hour ago my time, and honestly that blows my fucking mind. I have no recollection of 2017 but all I know is that it drained me. Not only was it personally draining, but as a world & a human race, it was especially draining. My mind is currently racing with thoughts of what I’ll be opening tomorrow and there’s also an ongoing battle of whether Rey is Luke Skywalker’s daughter or not?!?! 

This outfit is a prime example of my uniform this winter. A comfy turtleneck, even comfier denim, and even comfier slip ons! Can you tell I’m all about comfort for winter? Living in a desert, when we experience a season, we experience a season. We get all that the season has to offer, so obviously that means when it’s cold, it’s COLD! Because it’s so cold, my instinct is to automatically reach for my comfortable and minimal pieces. Also, I love tucking  long sleeves into vintage denim because it gives me the ultimate 90’s vibe that I’m flat out infatuated with. Add some croc skin slip ons and you’ve got a comfy, yet ultra chic winter fit! Have an extraordinary Christmas and an even better rest of your break! And always stay fab!

Checked Blazer & Vintage Tee 

I have been on a serious blazer kick for the past few weeks. I’m not completely sure how it started but I do know that I have no plans of stopping anytime soon. Blazers, especially oversized ones, add a distractingly cool and chic feel to any outfit. They’re so much fun to experiment with, that I decided to go out of my comfort zone and pair it with a vintage graphic tee! This particular blazer & tee combo is one that I fell instantaneously in love with. At first I was skeptical that the pairing would look odd together, but I soon realized that they complimented each other sublimely. Have a great weekend and stay fab!

Denim Jumpsuit & Vans 

I thought I’d quickly share some old photos of the sickest jumpsuit I got from Daya by Zendaya! It’s the absolute coolest design and I truly couldn’t resist especially because I got it on sale for $10!!!!! I mean how could you even dream of passing up an offer like that?!? I modernizes it by cinching the waist with a wide belt to add dimension to my body & the look and I also cut the long sleeves off not only because my arms are way too long, but because it makes it a even more casual! Have a great week and to all my college students HAPPY DEAD WEEK I know you’ll survive! Stay fab!

Black x Black.

This holiday season, I’m trying to incorporate fresh and unique pieces into my looks because I’m in the process of rediscovering my personal style. Don’t ask why or how I came up with that, but I did and I’m stickin to it! 

 My personal style has always been very trendy, but uniquely me, and I love that! It’s just that I want more from my personal style. I want to feel like a showstopper on a daily basis! I scroll through my Instagram feed and I see women & men who are unashamedly themselves in terms of their personal style. Sometimes I feel like I get too caught up in what everyone would say or how on trend something is, and my outfit ends up becoming no longer for me, but for everybody else. I want my personal style to be 100% fully & truly….me. I don’t want to dress for others, I want to dress because it’s what I love and what brings me the most happiness. So, what “rediscovering your personal style” looks like for me, is attempting to morph my own personal style by looking at it in a completely different fashion. I’m tired of thinking about if something matches or not or if people will compliment my look, I just want to feel good in what I’m wearing. Who gives a fuck if my shades of green don’t match, I’m wearing them & you’re not. I’m all for people being wacky and fun with fashion. In fact, it’s recently become a major obsession of mine. I’m so infatuated with the people I follow in the fashion industry because they all are so distinct in their own ways. Think of it this way, you would never catch Leandra Medine & Caroline Vreeland wearing the same thing. They’re two different & amazing women with killer senses of style & their differences are what makes them, them. 

This outfit is the first step of my process of rediscovering my personal style. It’s simple, with little intricate details. For instance I used a knit sweater instead of a plain black long sleeve because it adds little yet impactful details. Also, matching the silver metallic shoes with the western belt was a last minute detail that really hit home with me. I felt fulfilled when wearing this because I was warm, comfortable, and let’s be honest I look hella chic. Have a great week, and stay fab!

The Classics.

I’m such a sucker for a classic staple piece. I lose all control when I see a white tee, plain jeans, or even a plain blazer! When I first began to love fashion, I had no clue what I was doing, but I knew that starting with staple pieces was a good way to begin! So I rounded up some of the more classic/minimal pieces in my closet and now 4 years later here I am wearing the same stuff (but on a higher & better level)! 

To me, the classics that will never go out of style are things like white tees, Vintage levis, a classic black & white sneaker, and even western belts! These are all such amazing pieces alone, but when paired together, it can be the most glorious of pairings possibly ever! However, I think that being fun and weird with fashion is a great thing, and that everyone should try being adventurous at times. That being said, sometimes I don’t have the energy, and a tee and jeans is all that I feel comfortable in and that’s %100 ok! So, these jeans were recently Thrifted and I am sooooo ecstatic over them! They are the perfect light wash, Vintage Levi 501 that I’ve been searching for for a very long time! I’ve wanted a pair just like these for so long, I just never had the money to afforded the amazing/high quality pairs that I want! So that’s why these are so amazing, they’re exactly what I’ve wanted, and I only paid $1 for them!!! I think these are a pair of jeans that everyone should own! They’re classic, comfortable, and SO CHIC I CANT EVEN! Thanks for reading my ramble, have a great week and stay fab!
