Spring Look Book

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)

Styling A Graphic Tee

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?

California Update + Outfit Details

I have come to realize that not many people know what I am doing up here in California since I moved back after the holidays. Everything is kinda rocky but that is due to me figuring out exactly what I want to do with my life. I know I want to try to pursue PR since that is what I majored in and I want to stretch out my time here in Los Angeles, but I also am not sure if I want to stay here for a long time. I think it really depends on if I find a job I really enjoy. I know work is work, but I do not see the point of working somewhere I do not love and being away from my friends and family for no reason. Yes, the opportunities are a bit better here in Los Angeles blog-wise, but I’m not sure if the pros outweigh the cons quite yet.

What I do know for sure is I will be staying here until the end of March. I have two internships right now that I really wanted because they are giving me experience in positions I have never had before and I am excited for the growth in their fields. The first one is at a PR showroom which is a totally different type of PR than what I have been doing at previous internships! I really like working with fashion and name brands so I definitely wanted hands-on experience with this. Also, I feel like I could not apply for a job at a PR showroom without experience and now I have that!

The second internship is with a high-end magazine! I was not too sure about this position at first but the more I heard about it the more interested I became. It was described to me as “reverse PR” where the agencies come to you and you reach out to them for their clients to be featured. Not only am I doing this but I also get to experience putting together the magazine and all of the segments that go with it! Such a cool experience to have! More updates soon to come on both internships!

Okay on to the look! I have had this skirt now for a few months and have yet to style it! I finally figured I would keep it simple and a bit chic. I love playing around with my style and wearing pieces that are different and bold. This lace up skirt has the best details that are simple but stand out. Just my style! This is perfect for going out and wearing with a black bodysuit!

Favorite Little Details

I’m the kind of girl that when I like something I use it over and over again. When I really like a song I play it constantly until I am absolutely sick and tired of it! The same can be said about my jewelry. I wear the same three rings on my fingers, a dainty gold choker and swap between three pairs of earrings. Of course, if my outfit calls for some different jewelry I swear it, but then I put my original pieces right back on! Well, I am taking a close up on a few of my favorite (new) details and sharing why I wear them so much and where you can get them for yourself!

First up are my rings. Now let me start off by saying I have the SMALLEST fingers! Literally, they are so skinny and dainty everyone always comments on them. “You have baby hands.” “I could break your fingers if I wanted to.” I get it. Anyway, so my go-to are midi rings. My thumb ring is actually a Kendra Scott midi ring that I have as a set. My cross ring I believe I received from my grandma for my first communion. (That was when I was in second-grade y’all.) And my last “ring” is actually an ear cuff from Mejuri that I got from a bumble event. Needless to say, I wear these three rings at all times except when I am washing my hair.. a sad lesson learned the hard way.

Two new favorites are these sunglasses and watch from MVMT! I was gifted them to promote on Instagram and I just love the rose gold I wanted to add them to this post! I really am not a fan of watches so I almost turned this down, but I checked out the ones they had anyway and I really liked the unique band of this one!

Lastly is this new ear thread from AUrate. On New Year’s Eve, my friend and I had a whole discussion on how to put in an ear thread! We had both never used one and a few days later AUrate reached out to me seeing if I would do a sponsored post and one of the items was a gold ear thread. Now if you haven’t guessed already I only wear gold and rose gold so I just had to say yes! I am still playing with how to wear it, but it was such a coincidence!

Coffee Talk : Spring Style

I always get excited for the upcoming season at the end of the current one. It’s a cycle being excited to wear different clothes and then getting bored of them and waiting to transition your style. Also, I hate that small window between trends that happens every once in a while. I was shopping for a new piece to shoot this past weekend and I SWEAR I went to at least 10 stores both online and in-store and I could find nothing that spoke to me! So I am thinking that 1. I could definitely be a trend follower (which I admit I am) and 2. I am not the kind of person that just seeks trends but I seek unique pieces. There have been several pieces that I really love and wanted to shoot but they were just too much! I do not want to spend $400-500 on a piece that I will wear a few times but I want it just to shoot. (Jeans and staple pieces are a different story and you have to splurge sometimes tbh) And besides that my readers do not seem to be huge spenders. I feel they are like me and sometimes you buy the piece because you fall in love with it! Buying a piece to shoot once is different than buying a piece I really like and will wear again.

So, here is my “hoping for the California sun to come back out and stay out” outfit preparing for Spring!

A few pieces I cannot wait to see this season :

Skirts : A no brainer but Midi, flowy, and bright I love them all! I want to not just wear the regular mini skirt but something with fun details that can be paired with a sweater or a tank.

Statement pieces : As I said in a previous post, I think bold pieces are going to be a trend and filter down from the designers like Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood. And trust me I am here for it! After that H&M x Moschino Collab I believe anything is possible!

Pastel Neutral pieces : I love a good pastel pink, light green and baby blue! I can already picture shots in fields with bright colors in my hair, in the air and black boots on my feet!

What is your favorite piece to wear during Spring? Got any Spring Style predictions? Share them with me in the comments!

Styling Tulle

Styling Tulle. So I talked about stepping out of my comfort zone style-wise in my past blog post. This outfit definitely qualifies. This definitely is not something that I would just wear anywhere and now that I think about it, I have a very hard time placing where exactly someone would wear this outfit…

Any suggestions?

I’ve had this skirt in my closet for a while now, I actually shot it two years back for Valentine’s day and I actually wore a similar colored top now that I think about it! Why I choose to wear tulle in the winter is beyond me. I was absolutely freezing for this shoot! There were multiple times I ran the short distance back to the car to warm up and try my best to keep my nose from getting red. I go full Rudolph in the winter.

Tulle is one of those fabrics you just know when you see it! It stands out and when you get a good amount it just automatically looks divine! I am coming to realize I am a sucker for most pieces in white. Definitely a must! Black would just be a little too harsh for this look in my opinion. I styled it with a sweater mostly because it was freezing and also who wants to see a shot of someone in a tank top during winter? But this sweater has a great asymmetric feel, perfectly falls off the shoulder, and the small flare to the sleeve just ties it all together. After all, the devil is in the details.

A few of my tips for wearing tulle?

  1. Keep the rest of the outfit simple : you want the tulle to be the statement piece, the piece a person’s eyes automatically go to when they first see your look
  2. Mix fabrics : you, of course, do not want your whole look to be tulle, layering with a structured top is probably your best bet for wearing out a tulle skirt somewhere nice.
  3. Stick to one color : it can already be hard to find matching pieces, so don’t make it harder and get tulle AND a print together. Your other outfit pieces can have print, of course, but solid colors are the way to go in my opinion!
