Hellloooooo lovelies!! In case you were wondering, I am in fact still alive and well even though my lack of posts says otherwise. I recently had a longtime, extremely close friend visit our hometown and I soaked up every last second spent with her! She does not get to visit often but when she does we have the most fun imaginable. Because she comes from Texas she doesn’t get to see the mountains very often so doing a hike was a mandatory activity. We hiked a beautiful 2 mile trail that lead to an insanely scenic lake called Spud Lake. It was quite the work out, but like all hikes, worth it in the end! Also I figured it was far past due that I jump on the bike shorts trend, so like any crafty blogger I cut some old Target workout leggings and voila!!! A chic pair of shorts for every occasion! Have a great week and stay fab!
Some days it is quite the task to put together an outfit that I deem both chic and comfortable enough. There are many factors that go into deciding this, but the most important thing I look for in a great outfit is the way it makes me feel. Outfits like a t shirt and jeans make me feel calm and collected, while looks like this one that are a bit more “glitz-y” make me feel sexy and confident. I love incorporating standout pieces like this sparkly cardigan with classic ones like vintage Levis shorts because it’s a great contrast to add to any type of look. This is definitely a look I could wear over and over again! Have a great weekend and stay fab!

It’s no secret that my happiest times are spent at Disneyland. It’s the one place in the world that I can truly say I feel unabashed joy. There’s always something extravagant and breathtaking at the turn of every corner so you’re always on your toes! One of my favorite parts about going is showing out in well thought out, chic, yet undeniably Californian outfits. I like to pair simple and chic staples, with something Disney related like this cropped sweatshirt with my all black, monochromatic pieces. Something comfortable and breathable is ideal especially because of all the walking mixed with the Cali heat! This first look is all of that jumbled into one. Have a great week and stay fab!!
I’m baaaaaaaaAAAck!!!! Miss me?! I sure missed blogging! So I know I said I would be updating from Cali, but to be honest something comes over me in California and it’s like when I’m there I just completely space off my real life responsibilities and duties. Anyways, I had an otherworldly time at Disneyland, spending time with my family, eating anything even remotely considered “junk food”, and just basking in all the greatness that Cali has to offer! I truly live my happiest moments while I’m in California, and it’s not just because of Disneyland (which is a big factor). It’s because it is a place where I feel 100% without a doubt comfortable and well, happy! I also love to pull out all the stops in terms of my wardrobe. It is appropriate given the fact that where I live is not in the slightest bit stylish. When I say “stylish” I mean the people just don’t understand the things I wear and all the intricacies that come with fashion. In Cali, no one bats an eye, and some even compliment my looks! Stuff like that just does not happen in New Mexico, so you can imagine my excitement!
This look was a super quick and comfortable fit that I threw on to do some light souvenir shopping (which rapidly turned into a 2 hour long trip). I’m obsessed with these vintage Adidas track pants I got awhile back. Not only are they crazy comfy, but they’re very reminiscent of the Y2K vibe that I’m so wildly into right now. To add to the vintage nature of this outfit, I threw on my trusty old New Balance dad sneakers and called it good! At first I was skeptical to pair the two together because I felt it would be a little too much, but they complimented each other harmoniously! No outfit of mine is complete without a white tee, so naturally I gave it a nice west coast twist by tying a knot. I find it to be a simple yet chic way to spice up a summer look! There are so many more pictures that I’m dying to share with you guys so make sure to stay tuned! Stay fab my friends!

I’ll be on my way to California by morning, so I figured a quick post wouldn’t hurt! I am absolutely 100% infatuated with this Vintage Dior knit that I scored awhile back! It is one of those rare finds that reminds you why you thrift/vintage shop in the first place! I’m very glad I found one in black because it’s so easy to style and pair with! Obviously I chose my classic and most favorite pair of Levis 501s to give a 90’s vibe to the look. To continue the 90’s vibe, I threw on these insane vintage New Balances I thrifted. They’re my $6 version of the Balenciaga Triple S and I couldn’t be more in love! Have a great weekend and make sure to stay tuned for all my Cali antics & looks! Stay fab!!

Every now and then I come across a piece that I fall head over heels in love with, and then proceed to wear consistently after. This top is one of those pieces. When I saw it I was instantly reminded of a Céline top from a few seasons back. It was not cropped when I purchased it but I wanted to make it more summer appropriate! Tops like this are so much fun to style because there truly is countless options of what to pair it with, which makes getting dressed a whole lot smoother. I wore this look to my moms graduation so I added the super high waisted, grey plaid trousers to dress it up a bit. My snakeskin Urban Outfitters boots were the obvious choice of footwear because they add a more original, unique flare to any outfit! I’m also dying over the rounded, rectangular shape of these sunnies! It’s a fresh and modern shape of eyewear that I have been dying to try! I’m getting ready to leave for California to celebrate my mom getting her masters and I am so excited to shoot and share content from my favorite place on earth! Make sure to stay tuned! Have a great week and stay fab!
If this post doesn’t get you straight into the spring mood, I don’t know what will! It is once again that beautiful time of year when everything looks like spring, but most days it feels like we’re back in those bone-chilling winter months! Besides the fact that I live in a city with some of the most bipolar weather known to man, I’m immensely excited for the warm weather to completely take over. I’m definitely a winter person in terms of my dressing, but when it comes to everything else, I am such a summer person!
This spring I plan on incorporating a hell of a lot more color than I ever have before, why am I doing this you might ask? Simple. In the past I’ve focused a lot of my attention on staying with the current trends of the season, but I’m trying to steer away from that now. Obviously pastels and bright colors alike, are a common spring trend, but I’m not doing it for that reason at all. I have always loved when people have the ability to mix and match colors and make it look absolutely effortless. That was kind of my goal with this look! I recently purchased this stunning vintage DKNY JEANS orange & yellow plaid blazer and it just completely changed my life. It has such a unique, timeless, yet fresh fit and design, there was just no way I could resist. Ishot these immideately following this purchase, and I’ve never been more pleased with a purchase and set of pictures! I attempted to tone down the look a bit by layering the most classic and chic spring/Summer combo: a white tee and vintage denim shorts! I felt like it added a really cool, Californian vibe to an already quirky yet polished look. The Stan smith’s were basically the cherry on top of an A1 lewq (yes, in case you haven’t heard, it’s lewq not look). All in all this is an outfit I would be more than happy to be buried in because it’s that good hahah! Have a great week and as always stay fab!
