Classics x A Twist 

Recently I’ve tried to broaden my horizons in terms of fashion and try stuff that’s a little bit unconventional. I recently read an article about “dressing weird” in Vogue, and it really enlightened me! After reading the piece I tried to sit on the words I read and really apply them into my personal style. It touched on things like adding wacky accessories and mixing prints in order to add new elements to one’s personal style. I really resonated with the article because that is something I find myself attempting to apply in my own life. So thats where this outfit comes in, it’s a play on my own personal uniform. I absolutely adore a white tee and denim combo, and I’m currently adoring belts even more! The belt/corset trend is taking the world by storm and I am 100% on board! I love the cinched waist that it gives and the depth it can add to one’s body! Not only does it give the illusion of curves and definition, but it adds an element of enticement! I challenge my readers to try to be more fun and weird with your personal style once in awhile! Be fun and be yourself and it will always look A1! 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 Downtown Moment.

I try to create looks no matter where I’m going. I don’t care if I’m picking up one thing from the store for my mom or I’m going out for pizza, I’m. Gonna. Serve. This is one of those outfits where every piece has a purpose and the outfit wouldn’t be complete without any of them. I got these pants from H&M and I have to say, they weren’t really what I was hoping for/paid for. On the website they looked as if they were made of a silky almost satin-y fabric, but it turns out they’re just sweatpants that look like silk. Nevertheless, I waited awhile for them to arrive so I figured I might as well just get past it and wear them! PS: THEYRE ON SALE! Also, lately I haven’t been able to take this denim jacket off, it’s just my absolute favorite thing! Pair it with my Vans and a sexy cropped tee and you’ve got a classic “Marvin.” Have a great week and stay fab!

Cali Diaries Day 4: Knott’s Berry Farm

This was my first time at Knott’s Berry Farm and i was very pleased with how it turned out! I love crazy roller coasters and the ones here did not disappoint! Also, the chicken dinner I devoured while there was phenomenal!!! For my look I wanted something yet again very simple and comfortable, so I threw on some 560’s and a white tee and called it good. I added a belt and my maroon windbreaker to kind of take it up a notch, but overall I loved how simple and easy the outfit was! Also, this leather backpack that I thrifts was my lifeline in Cali because it is super cute but also very convenient and useful. Have a great weekend and stay fab!

Cali Diaries Day 2: Disneyland Day 1 

For the second day of our trip we hit up my absolute favorite place on earth: DISNEYLAND! There is no place on the planet that I love more than Disneyland. I’m at my absolute happiest when I’m in the park. From the thrilling rides, to the cute and nostalgic movie themed rides, to the overwhelming amount of churros I consumed, there was absolutely not a single dull moment for me. For my outfit I wanted something very Californian but still comfortable and me. I cut my favorite Levis 501s because, why not? And threw on a cropped white tee and a flannel to give it a Californian side. And clearly no Californian fit would be complete without my vans! Have a great week and stay fab!

Lemonade. 

“the crowd erupts in applause, but we can’t hear them”


Lemonade. Or the piece of art that changed my life immensely. I will never ever forget the day of its release, I was anxious, impatient, and riveted. The amount of excitement I had was too much to handle and I didn’t know how to verbalize any of it. From the second I saw her in the field wearing a hoodie/gown hybrid, I knew I was in for a life changing experience. At the time of its release I was about to finish my junior year in high school and I was stressed and timid, and somehow it made everything seem ok. The music pulled me in and shook up my understanding of love, forgiveness, racism, empowerment, and heartbreak. To see a woman so powerful and successful, take an uncomfortable and relevant subject like cheating and channel it into art was so astounding. Getting to see, hear and every feel a deeper level of Beyonce’s life was so humbling and I’m forever grateful to her for letting me experience it. While the ultimate break up songs like “Sorry” and “Don’t hurt yourself” we’re an amazing addition to the cheating theme, but if you look too closely into Jay’s possible infidelity, you’ll lose the true meaning of the album. The album was about forgiving someone for ruining you and to stand up for your rights and to be proud of who you are and where you’re from. I will be forever grateful to Beyonce and for her vision and execution of the greatest album of all time. 

Now that you know how much Lemonade means to me, I’ll give you the fashion and fun part of this post. Last night I celebrated….wait for it……….MY GRADUATION!!!!!! Yes that’s right, you’re reading a high school graduate’s blog right now! I’m so excited that I’m done with high school forever and can’t wait to start my life! So about that party, it was such an amazing time and I wish I could do it everyday! All my closest friends and family were present and I was surrounded by so much love and I’m so grateful for the people that showed up and slayed! Being me, I asked all my guests to “serve a look” because I’m very into people throwing caution to the wind and pulling out all the stops for an outfit! I ordered this jumpsuit from ASOS after having fallen in love with it weeks before! It’s one of the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn and I don’t regret wearing it for a second! Obviously the party was Lemonade themed (argo the prologue) and I’m so happy with how everything turned out! Thank you to everyone for coming and serving and for being so loving and supportive!!!! Catch the looks below 😉 and have a great week!

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!
