I decided to create a quick video of a few looks that would be fun for Spring! These are looks that I liked, but they did not make it to the blog. I am kind of picky when it comes to clothes and even more picky when it comes to content.
I am trying to mix up my content and I put a few previews of these looks on my Instagram but I linked the full video here! I like how it came out, and while I still have more work to do on videos, I am thinking I am going to try to keep them coming here and there! Let me know what you think and if you’d like to see more quick clips!
ALSO, excuse the wrinkles, all of the travel has really gotten to my clothes and the material is so delicate I would rather take it to the cleaners (or let my mom do it tbh)

I have seen graphic tees all over my Instagram recently and I just had to hop on that bandwagon! I found a similar Andy Warhol tee at the Melrose Trading post, perfectly worn in and with the perfect amount of pink.. but there was one problem.. it was over $100. I was not willing to pay for a tee that I would not be wearing super often and I knew I could make myself. So I emailed this picture to my mom and had her print it on transfer paper and she ironed it on to a shirt from the store. Much cheaper and same Andy Warhol painted top of my own!
If that was not enough of a task, I actually edited this picture from the internet to add more pink and purples to match my feed! IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS. When I was done I had to pair it with these purple Steve Madden heels and I fell in love with this look! Something so different and so cool!
I recently took a poll on my Instagram story asking which shorts I should buy and it was between these and plain black lace-up shorts (imagine these without the stars). The plain black ones actually won but my heart was already set on these! I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and I love wearing these just for fun.
My Tips for Styling a Graphic Tee
Keep a color scheme! Add a simple white tee with red lettering and a bright red lip for a pop of color!
A graphic tee tucked into comfy fitting shorts or jeans are a great staple
Cuff your sleeves on your graphic tee for a cool look… I do this a lot actually and iron the cuff so it stays
Find one with a cool saying! The image does not have to take up all of your shirt for it to count
Size up and wear your tee with a comfy cardigan and leggings for a cozier look!
Graphic tees are one of the new staple pieces, get two or three and hang on to them until the trend dies out because this one will definitely be back!
Do you have a favorite graphic tee you love to wear?

So if it hasn’t become apparent enough, I am stepping out of my fashion comfort zone and I haven’t stopped. Along with trying more boho looks, I have shot a few trendy and chic looks as well which is really killing my Instagram profile! But I like being able to pull off new looks and trying something that is different! Honestly, I know a lot of you are going to HATE this look as soon as it comes out on Instagram but I had to try it out! I was getting creative with the outfits I have and I wanted to share something new and different. Plus I am still in my phase of doing different kinds of looks so this one was included. These shoes are actually my moms and probably a size too big and I bought this romper from Wildfox at a sample sale! I tried again with the Spring outfit and black boots (similar post) and this is what I got. I also linked a few outfits to show you my inspiration and pieces to shop for yourself!
What do you think of this look?

Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays! It always has been ever since I was younger and would get to pick out Valentine’s cards to give out to the class! I even would buy Valentine’s for my friends in high school. I love the pinks, reds, and purples. Hearts and the odds and ends that come with the holiday are always so cute! I also really liked shooting this outfit! Something different for me as I am trying to be more trendy with this, but I love trying new looks and genres of fashion. I also included some sweet gifts for the special girls in your life! These are sweet little reminders to share that will last a bit longer than a heart balloon and candy!

I really wanted to document a lot more of my summer in LA. I’m lucky enough to be able to extend my stay until the fall! I think what I learned from LA does not have much to do with Los Angeles itself, but from moving to another city and not knowing a lot of people. It really helped me grow as an individual and if you asked me a year ago if I would be here I would have probably responded saying, yeah that would be super cool! But I am proud of myself for actually doing this! So being able to learn so much and look back at this part of my life later on will be amazing. Okay onto what I learned…
- Not everyone is your friend : People are not all the same as what you are used to at home. There really is so many different personalities to each area. Just roll with it and stay you.
- Make friends ASAP : This is more of a safety thing, you can do it on your own but you should not have to. That’s kinda like my motto if I’m being honest.
- You have to learn your surroundings : Know where you can go for a walk, the best thai restaurant, and where Uber picks you up and drops you off
- I learned to be independent : I never really knew what it meant to have a real job before, so this was a totally new experience over all
- You learn to appreciate home : you get to miss what you don’t have and who is not around, so it makes it more special when you go back.

Seven magic mountains is another place that I stopped on my way from Los Angeles to Texas. A bit out of the way since it is right outside Las Vegas, but definitely worth it! Great photo ops, and I wish I was able to have gone when it was less crowded and in the afternoon, but we were on a time constraint! Still a cool place to visit if you’re in the area.
Where is your favorite place to go for photo ops?
I recently have been into a lot more edgier outfits. While I still love to keep everything fun and feminine, every once in a while I like to mix it up! Honestly boho is my current favorite! I like billowy tops and flare jeans… think Free People!
This outfit is a bit more grungy than I had hoped, but I was on a road trip, all of my outfits weren’t accessible, and I just had to go for it! Definitely something different but the color of the rocks made me feel better about al of the black! Also I just had to style my fanny pack from Quay Australia (linked below).
I used to dress super girly and honestly I still do, but every once in a while I like to mix it up. I am going for something a little more chic, recently. If you follow my instagram you will see a small change in filters for fall, but also in my looks. I am dressing things up with hats, big belt buckles, simple gold jewelry and fun booties. I really think I am a huge trend follower! Not on purpose, but I definitely just really like when an outfit is put together well!
