I am all for a statement piece! The puffy sleeve trend definitely is one that makes a statement. I love the sleeves and the color together is such a great combo. I rounded up a few more pieces that have puffy sleeves that you may like as well!
What’s your favorite trend of the moment?
This is definitely a classier weekend look! I actually wore this one to the Melrose Trading Post, and while that isn’t exactly where I pictured wearing it, I just felt like it. Do you ever feel like that? Wearing something new even though it might be a little much for the occasion?
Of course, I also had to pair it with my new headband! I used to ALWAYS wear headbands when I was younger so this was a throwback for me! I love how cute and creative the headbands are now! I definitely want more, especially ones with pearls!
This is obviously one of those tops that you have to wear a cute bandeau (or bodysuit in my case) underneath. I love the sweet details and of course, I am a sucker for white under pink! I love a cute detail and when I saw this lace background I knew it would go perfectly!

I am all for the athleisure trend! There is something comforting about being able to just wear some sweats and a tee or leggings around running errands. I have a few favorite places that I really do enjoy getting my workout clothes from. While I used to just wear a big shirt and shorts, wearing workout clothes makes it more fun to actually go to the gym and also the cuter the pieces, the better the workout! (Okay that one may not be true but it sounds nice)
My Favorite Places to show athleisure:
Workout wear is designed to be breathable and stretchy. Great for long walks around the block or long weekends on the couch! I am usually that person that goes for black, white, or pink active wear so I can wear it on my plane rides. Every time I think of getting something I think if I would wear it on a trip so that I can get the most use out of it!
Where do you shop for workout wear?
If I am being honest, I didn’t really see too much of a point in wearing quality activewear until recently. If you are doing a workout class the fabric is better and you do not have to tug and pull at your clothes. I recently purchased my first pair of gym shark leggings and they have such a flattering fit that it keeps you going because when I look in the mirror I like what I see! It’s all a psychological thing!
Music festivals are one of those things that you should splurge on in my opinion! If there are at least three bands you want to see, it is definitely a must! While it can be hot, very overcrowded and expensive, it is a great memory. I want to say this is my third year attending ACL but this one was definitely one of my favorites because I knew so many of the performers. It is also really fun to go earlier and just sit and chill while listening to other bands. There are usually pop-ups as well that give out free things so I would hit those up before watching the performances you want to see!
Even though the music festival is in October and it seems to be a great time weather-wise, weekend one was still SUPER hot because it is still Texas. My makeup definitely sweat off after being pushed around getting to the front, but the food was amazing and I got to see Lizzo, Kasey Musgraves, Billie Eilish, 21 Savage, Cardi B, Mumford and Sons and a few more!
I really like ACL because the selection of the artists is so diverse! You can see country, alternative, hip-hop and pop artists on multiple stages. There is something for everyone and I definitely saw people of all ages in attendance!
Tips for attending:
- Read the rules : Know what you can and cannot bring inside!
- Bring a portable charger
- Dress for the weather
- Have a designated meeting area incase you get lost
- Drink LOTS of water
- Save up for food and drinks

I was so lucky to have been invited to the Lulu’s pop-up before it opened to view the collections! I had so much fun and saw so many LA bloggers that I follow on Instagram. What I loved most was that Lulu’s really did bring together the LA influencer community because I saw girls that had millions of followers with girls that had even less than I do.
It was a fun night overall, and we were all able to pick one free item, share a drink and light bites, and mingle. I really enjoyed seeing all of my friends and I wish more events were inclusive like this one.
One thing I definitely wanted to touch on as proposed by my friend Lola, was going to events alone. I think I did touch on this one a bit in a previous post, but really having the courage to go to these things alone is a big thing and I didn’t realize that. I guess it isn’t a big deal to me because I am basically alone out here in LA. I don’t have people to hold my hand and all of my friends I made out here.
My friend Lola who inspired the post!
Now I do want to say I did not just come out here to LA alone. I sublet with one of my sorority sisters so it was both of us and I got closer to the girls that we lived with. My sorority sister had to go back to Texas for school and my sublet ended so I did end up being pretty alone, but it was a transition still.
I think it is something that everyone should do though. Go have dinner out alone and go to the movies alone. It really is empowering when you get comfortable. I was told last night that I was BRAVE for going to the event alone. I thought to myself, actually, I just did not want to be stuck with just one person the whole night!
Moral of the story, go to things alone. Meet people. Step out of your comfort zone. Do the things that a basic things that grow you as a person. Thank me later! *winky face*
