Classic Camel & Black.

If you know me, you know I love a camel & black combo. I’ve always adored how well the two colors compliment each other, and also how many options there are with the pairing! I recently took a weekend trip to Albuquerque with two of my best friends, and while there I came upon this beauty of a sweater at a thrift store! It’s Banana Republic and it was $2!!! I absolutely had to, right? Anyways, I’m sooo in love with the way it pairs with my vintage faded black Levis 501s! The two were practically made for each other! Have a great week and stay fab!

The Carpenter Jean.

Ok but where the hell did September go??? It feels as if 2017 zipped by in a millisecond! Sometimes it blows my mind how fast time can fly! While it’s already October, things in Farmington are as bipolar as ever. In the day it’s hot and dry and at night it’s stormy and flooding! So at this point I’m just wearing whatever! 

Can we take a moment to not just appreciate but oogle over this amazing vintage Nike mock neck top! I scored this gem at my town’s Salvation Army and I’ve been counting down the seconds until it’s cold enough to wear this! And it’s finally beginning to cool down enough! Not only do I love the design itself but the sleeves are slightly balloon-y which I’m sooo obsessed with! It’s going to be my go-to this Fall/Winter! So, onto the real star of this post, I ordered these Topman jeans about a week and a half ago and I received them the other day after tracking it’s every move. They were a steal for only $17, but not only that they’re such a modern, cool fit and style that I absolutely couldn’t resist! I’ve seen the white stitching on black denim style around lately, so I’m glad I finally hopped on the trend! I like to take pieces that are trending and mix them with an older more classic piece like the Nike top! I think it adds some great defining layers to an outfit! Have a great week and stay fab!!

A Silk Spell.

It seems I’ve been under some sort of spell lately, and it makes me only want to buy shirts that are silk? I don’t know if that’s logical but I’m gonna go with it because I love me some silk. This shirt is one of my favorites to date because it’s so simple yet chic. I love how well it pairs with my 501s so that’s a major plus! Have a great weekend and stay fab!

Usual Suspects. 

You guys should know by now that I’m at my most comfortable when I’m in a tee and jeans. There’s just something about the combo that gives me a sense of security. When I’m in a rut and can’t find a good outfit, I automatically gravitate towards a tee and a good pair of denim. These particular jeans are the actual jeans of my dreams. I found them at a random yard sale and when I saw the size I was taken aback, but when I saw they were 501s I almost lost my shit. It is such a rare and beautiful thing to find a pair of 501s that are just your size. SO, the lesson for today is never pass up a yard sale no matter how weird it looks, and also to take a minute and just wear something simple and comfortable once in awhile! Have a great week and stay fab!

A Belted Blazer Moment.

This is me making an effort to give you quality and consistent content! This is my first time shooting actual blog pictures in awhile and I’m so proud of myself for finally getting around to it! Just a forewarning, I start my classes this week so that might sometimes interfere with my posting but I promise I’ll try my absolute hardest! 

For this look I was inspired by Emannuelle Alt (The Editor in chief of Vogue Paris and one of my biggest fashion idols) because the belted blazer is basically her trademark look! There’s something about the sophistication of this combination that really drew me in. I thrifted this blazer because it reminds me so much of the high end versions I’m currently seeing everywhere and on everyone. It’s such a classic design that I just couldn’t resist! With the belt it just really gives you that perfect waist cinching vibe. Also, these new patent leather look sneakers from H&M reminded me why I love H&M so much in the first place: the best deals! I saw these in the store and immediately fell in love, and when I saw they were only $7 I was instantaneously attached! This is definitely one of my most Parisian inspired outfits I’ve worn recently, yet I wanted to add a little bit of my own flare so I threw on my vintage Levis 560s in black! And these sunglasses were purchased at a random yard sale and I was not supposed to buy anything that particular day, yet when I saw these I caved. They’re definitely a different style than I’m used to, but I love how unique yet effortless they are! Also how MAJOR are these pics?? Thank you Faith for making me look and feel so much better than I actually do! Have a great week and stay fab!

Natural Summer Tones.

It has been at an all time high in terms of temperature lately. The minute you step outside, you’re hit with one of the most dry and relentless heats you’ll ever experience. But, when you’ve lived here for as long as I have, it’s nothing. I know there are places on earth that are much hotter but still, it’s pretty damn warm. 

For this look, I started out knowing that I was gonna incorporate these new H&M jeans I recently got and let me tell you, they are life changingly comfortable. The denim is soft yet stretchy and firm. It wasn’t the wash I thought it would be, but I quickly moved on because of all the other amazing elements. The cropped fit, the overall material, and even the 501 button fly vibe all have me rolling on the floor. I’m really into the warmer tones going on in this look. It’s a vibe I’m not usually one to pounce on, but I have to say the way the belt and my thrifted YSL shirt compliment each other is spot on. Have a great week and stay fab! (Also, I FINALLY got a new phone, so we all have the outstanding iPhone 7 camera to thank for these amazingggg pics)

Wrap & Tuck

I saw it one random day, on an instagram post by @troprouge. It was something I’d never seen before, a button up that you didn’t button at all! You simply wrap it and tuck it all in! I couldn’t believe how simple and easy it was to make a button up feel fresh and modern! It took me a minute to actually apply it in my outfits, but one day I was trying o figure out how to make a button up look unique yet modern. And suddenly it dawned on me that this was the answer to all my problems! I chose this striped button up to give it my personal flare. And there I go again with the white accessories! I’m not sorry I love them!! So enjoy and have a great week! Stay fab!
