Summer Midriff Series

This summer I’m all about the details. I love adding bold/statement pieces to simple outfits. My all time favorite pieces this summer have been denim shorts & a plain cropped tee. They’re the ultimate summer pairing and there’s endless options with them! Some days I’ll branch out and do denim shorts with a statement top or just a plain cropped tee with jeans, it just depends on how I feel like styling them. Everyday I try to snap a pic of the midriff area of my outfit because I think it’s the most appealing area of an outfit to me. I love little details like the wash of denim or even the buttons that keep my fly up. Enjoy some of the snaps that I’ve saved from my midriff series. (I promise there’s way more I just don’t save all of them) Have a great week and stay fab!

Denim in Durango.

There’s no clothing I love more than denim. Honestly, it’s my absolute favorite thing to wear for any and everything. It’s the ideal base for any type of outfit. You can dress it up, dress it down, mix other shades, and mix it with prints etc. That being said, it’s no secret I love Levis denim in particular. So when I get the chance to wear two Levis pieces, I’m in. I frayed my black Levis 560’s because I wanted to give them a more personal touch. I adore the mix of the tan fur mixed with the washed black denim because it really gave my look an urban yet earthy tone. Hope you have an amazing week and stay fab!

Super Oversized Green.Β 

Recently I went to Durango, CO for some lunch and downtime with my family, and I figured it was a good time to pull this ginormous button up I purchased from a thrift store awhile back. I’ve been extremely hesitant to wear it out because of how large it is and how it basically swallows me. Nevertheless, I love the color and I knew it would add an edgier element to my already simple outfit. Adding oversized pieces to any outfit can be tricky because it can seem a little out there for some people. But my biggest piece of advice when wearing oversized pieces, is to just let go and completely disregard any thought of what someone might say or think about it. Have a great weekend and stay fab!!

Velour Factor.

Unsurprisingly, one of the biggest trends to hit the scene this past year is everything and anything velvet. It’s taken the entire world by storm and become a fashion phenomenon. After a long time of waching from the sidelines, I finally hopped on the train and got a velvet piece. This blazer was actually purchased from a Salvation Army thrift store in my town, and I’ve been infatuated since. It’s a little small on my arms so I suspect it won’t last long in my wardrobe, but for the time being it’ll be my ultimate staple piece. While I’m usually not one to mix formal and casual pieces quite like these, I figured it’d be a good experiment. And in the end, I’m in love. Had a great week and stay fab!

A Suede Story.

When I’m in a crazy bind outfit-wise, the first thing to always pop in my head is a cover up of sorts. Whether it be a jacket, button-up, or even a sweater. It’s not at all for modesty or to literally cover up, but to add a different element to my outfit. In this case, it was my suede button-up which is one of my most proud thrifting finds. I find that pairing didferent textures like suede and leather creates a more dramatic and memorable look 9/10 of the time. And what look of mine would be complete without a white tee?? Hope you have an amazing weekend! Everyone stay fab!!

Comeback & The Latest

You read that right, this is my personal comeback. I realize I’ve been extremely absent and incosistent with my posting, but I have promised myself that I’d commit to posting truly exceptional content, consistently. I figured that this mega cool combo of black, metallic silver, and white would be the perfect way to make a return to my blogging ways. 

In other news, obviously I want to touch on the recent remarks made towards bloggers by none other than Vogue Magazine. For now I’ll just say that I’m utterly disappointed and upset that an institution like Vogue (who has the utmost respect and influence from the fashion world) would demean and bully bloggers who have assisted in their site and magazine’s recent success. (Stay tuned for full post) Have a great week and stay fab!
