I thought I’d share some quick iPhone pictures I took on NYE. A group of friends and I drove up to Durango, CO for the day and had such a blast! Mexican food, vintage shopping, and photo shoots all made for the perfect end of 2017, and of course being with close friends was great too!
This sweater became an instant classic/staple in my wardrobe back when I scored it at a thrift store last October. I had been on a low key hunt for the PERFECT camel knit and my prayers were answered at a Thrift Town in Albuquerque! I laid eyes on this and instantaneously knew we were a match made in heaven. I ended up scoring this bomb Banana Republic knit for only $5!! How could anybody pass up an offer like that?? The sweater compliments my snakeskin boots like no other! I loved this look because it was full of different proportions and silhouettes like the super oversized fit of the sweater and cropped/relaxed cut of the denim. I’m trying to really push myself in terms of my looks and pairing my silver metallic tote with the look was my attempt at doing just that! I’m very convinced that this tote was made especially for me. When I first saw it I was overcome with so much emotion I just knew I had. To. Have. It. So I asked for it for Christmas and my mom came alllllll the way through! I’ve had this purse attached to my hip since the minute I unwrapped it and I don’t plan on changing that anytime soon! Have an extraordinary week and stay fab!
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!
Nothing screams fall like a shearling lined denim jacket. It’s my absolute favorite piece to transition from warm to cold! The fur lining is really just the ultimate fall fabric, and honestly I’d be lost without this jacket. Not only does it keep me extra toasty, but it pairs well with many types of pieces! One of my personal favorite pieces to match it with is (unsurprisingly) a pair of Levi’s jeans! The mixing of denims is something I may never grow tired of. There’s endless ways to style denim on denim, but also it’s a classic and chic combo to use when you’re in a rut!
Also, I recently scored this In-N-Out burger tee shirt and I’m still swooning over it. I grabbed it not only because it’s super cute & soft, but it reminds me of my second home, California. It kind of depresses me because it makes me really miss everything about the place, but at the same time it makes me feel like I have a piece of Cali with me. I’m also trying to accessorize as much as possible this fall! I’ve recently found that it’s a chic way to add some more elements to my looks! This maroon croc skin handbag caught my eye at the thrift store because of the shape, but also because of the autumnal vibe it gives off! Have a great week and stay fab!

One of my biggest fashion inspirations is the transcendent Bella Hadid! She has hands down one of the most eclectic and chic senses of style I’ve ever witnessed. With every outfit and every red carpet, she further proves to the world that’s she one bad ass bitch! Not only is her wardrobe refined and diverse, she also brings a certain level of sex and class to every single outfit. I absolutely love the way she finds new ways to style things that wouldn’t generally work together! For instance she basically pioneered the grand return of vintage Dior saddle bags! The girl has an incomparable fashion sense, and on top of that she is one of the most beautiful people on the planet! I figured she’d be the best person to channel this Halloween because she is just so risky and chic and that’s what I look for in a costume! I threw together this look on the fly and I have to say it turned out perfect! This vintage Gap blazer and these lace look pants were both thrifted finds that I will forever cherish! The blazer instantly caught my eye because 1. It’s vintage Gap!!! and 2. It’s classic and chic! I also thought that by adding a chic little black handbag, it would really take the Hadid vibe over the edge! Throw on some classic cons, a cropped white tee, and an eccentric yet interesting pair of sunglasses and BAM you’ve got yourself a Hadid approved fit! Have a great week and stay fab!!

The pinstripe is one of the most cherished prints in my wardrobe. I love how they can make me feel taller and even more sophisticated at times. It’s a very versatile print, yet sometimes it can be difficult to find the perfect complimentary piece. For this look, the complimentary piece is the silver shoes obvi! They’re also the statement piece, but they really compliment the pants exceptionally. Something as little as tying a knot in a tee can make an outfit that much more interesting. I love how something that small can completely morph my perpesticve on a look. Have a great week and stay fab!
My favorite aspect of this denim jacket from H&M is the actual fit of it. I love how it has a military vibe that kind of elevates a simple outfit. When I pair it with denim, I don’t really care what wash my jeans are because the jacket is the perfect wash of denim that is super easy to work with. I haven’t pulled out my white converse in a long time, but I figured it would add a little classic touch to this look! I’m also sooooo head over heels for the tiny sunglasses trend. I honestly didn’t think it would last as long as it has, but I’m crazy happy that it has! I think it’s a very new and fresh way to really elevate any type of outfit! Have a great week and stay fab!

Yes, it’s that silk shirt again! I honestly can’t help it sometimes, if a piece is really good I have to get a lot of use out of it! I believe that repeating pieces is nothing to be ashamed of, I think if you wear a piece once and never again after that, you’re not getting the full effect.
This particular shirt is one of my favorite pieces at the moment. It’s such a classic staple, but a little bit more elevated. I’d go as far to say that it’s the white button up I’ve been searching for my whole life! I love that in itself, it’s a statement piece that can be ever so versatile. Every time I wear these vintage Calvin Klein jeans I feel right at home. They’re soft, have a great fit, and hug me just right I’m all the right places! Incorporating soft pieces like a silk top with darker and edgier pieces like black ripped jeans or patent leather sneakers can really help elevate a simple outfit. Have a great week and stay fab!
