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!

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!
You may be wondering “what does he mean by unconventional denim” or you may not. Either way, what I meant by that is that I’m currently on the prowl for different ways to style a denim piece, this being one of them. I’ve always admired the way some people in fashion have a knack for coming up with new ways to style certain pieces. A fanny pack over the chest, sweaters as scarves, and even layering belts! The options are absolutely endless!
I buttoned this denim jacket kind of assymetrically to give it that dope look of the thousand dollar Balenciaga denim jacket that i dream about. It’s a simple trick that has a monumental impact on any outfit! I paired it with these new trousers I thrifted. Grey plaid had a huge moment this past fall, and I intend on carrying it out through spring/Summer! It’s such a timeless print, with endless amounts of styling options. I love the contrast of the grey & green from my Stan Smith’s so much! It’s a color combo I never thought I’d find myself utilizing, but I looove it! Also, this baby Adidas bag is on major rotation right now in my wardrobe. It’s classic, easily portable, and so fucking cute I can’t even comprehend. It’s the perfect finishing touch to an already, “fire” outfit, good one huh?! Have a great week and stay fab!

Spring could not possibly seem further away! It feels as though Winter was like a big, ugly pimple you just can’t get rid of no matter how hard you try. No matter how many times I made myself believe it was nice outside, nothing seemed to be changing. Until now. It’s finally that time of the year when you can physically feel the seasons changing. Cloudy, wet and brisk days turn into sunny, bright and warm ones. One of my favorite times of the year is when a season transitions into another. It’s a time to dispose of the old, and welcome in the new, in terms of wardrobe and in general!
A personal favorite way of mine to welcome in a new season is by pairing a comfy knit with my favorite pair of jeans. It is a simple yet ingenious way to keep yourself warm and ready for whatever the day throws at you. Also, adding a statement boot or shoe, like these snakeskin boots, can help to give this transitional look a little extra flare. So when you’re hysterically deciding what the perfect transitional outfit is, just go with the comfiest jeans you have, a killer sweater, and some eye catching footwear, and you’re alllll set! Have a great week and stay fab!
