Short & Sweet

Rompers are both one of my favorite clothing items and one of my least favorite. The first is obvious: they are effortless. You don’t have to fuss with multiple pieces, and they are just so chic. However, let’s be real– they are a nuisance getting on and off when nature calls. It’s a struggle, but I have to say: I love this romper from Loft, and I am willing to deal with the struggle, lol. It’s the most comfortable romper I own; it feels like I’m wearing my PJs in public. Plus, I love how classic the cut and print are (you know I love anything and everything with a cool print). I can’t find the printed version online, but the black version is currently 40% off!

Don’t Rain on my Parade

Rain has been in the forecast for days now due to Tropical Storm Bill, and I hope everyone is safe and well. Thankfully, the rain was more tame where I live compared to others, so my brother and I decided to be a little adventurous and test out more camera settings (since we are camera noobs). It was only sprinkling when we began to take some shots, but of course, it began to rain cats and dogs shortly after. However, some of the pictures turned out better than we thought they would (especially the ones with the fire hydrant LOL).

One Chic Summer

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Hello, world!

I live in dresses all year round since they’re so easy to just throw on, and there are so many beautiful dresses on Chicwish that I couldn’t wait to share with you guys. My style is more girly, and I’m drawn to more feminine details like lace and embroidery (which I’m loving on the second dress along with the silhouette). I picked my favorites from the website, but there are so many more options of clothing at reasonable prices. Plus, if you sign up, you will get a 30% discount, so check out the website!

Kaleidoscope

Hello, world!

It’s not officially summer yet, but (surprise, surprise) the temperature hit 100 degrees yesterday. While the temperature still continues to rise, I love cooling off in easy, breezy dresses. This dress from Joe Fresh is easily one of the most comfortable dresses I own, and it has by far the most interesting pattern on it. It’s listed on the Joe Fresh website as the Kaleidoscope Dress, which is so fitting for such an intricate print. I’ve also been obsessed lately with my Old Navy sandals since they practically go with everything in my wardrobe, and they’re a comfortable height for me.

Culotte Me In

Hello, world!

I know – I said I was back two weeks ago, but of course, my brother got sick and then I got sick. I’m finally feeling much better, and I’m finally able to write a new fashion post for you all. Summer is actually one of my least favorite seasons just because I get into a rut of just wearing t-shirts and shorts due to the Texas heat. However, this new trend of culottes are a perfect way of switching up my summer outfits and staying cool with how breezy and airy they are. Trust me, I was on the fence about this trend since they looked unflattering and they reminded me of elementary school (flashback to gaucho pant days), but the cut of the pants actually creates a pretty and feminine silhouette. I’ve found that I can pair these pants with nearly anything in my wardrobe, so be warned that I am definitely going to be featuring them many times in the future.

Perspective

Hello, world!

Cue Eminem because guess who’s back? I’m back again for the summer. I’m finally done with my sophomore year, and I’m back home to enjoy some moments of bliss with family and some old friends.

I always seem to say that I’m busy, but this semester for me was physically and mentally exhausting. This semester taught me just how precious every moment is. Here I was, worried about a single test, and I realized how lucky I was to be worried. While it’s easy to get caught up in the details, I personally realized how important it is to just take a step back and put things back into perspective.  I am so very lucky to have had a semester full of stress, tears, and a whole lot of laughs with some great friends by my side. Especially before and during my finals, I am so thankful for y’all (and thanks for letting me bother you and buy your meals during my last few days on campus LOL).

More fashion posts are on the way. I’m so excited to get back into the swing of things again.

Chin Up

Hello, world!

I haven’t updated in awhile, and I am literally in the midst of some hectic weeks (including finals week), but I just wanted to write a little post to spread some positive vibes because I know how the end of the semester can be. The stress is piling up, but remember: there are so many great things ahead like how classes are almost over and how summer is just around the corner. No matter what you’re struggling with and stressing out about, you’re going to get through this. Keep your chin up! For those in school, good luck on your finals!

Spring Forward

Hello, world!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. My family and I went up to Dallas for a mini-vacation, and it was just wonderful for some change in scenery. The weather was gorgeous on Saturday, and the downtown area was just perfect for taking pictures and exploring. My brother and I especially loved discovering (and eating at) different restaurants in Dallas.

Spring Fever

Hello, world!

Spring is upon us, and I’m loving wearing dresses around campus since the weather is finally perfect. There are so many gorgeous pieces this season especially on Lulu’s. Florals are a given for spring, but I’ve been recently loving two piece dresses. The layering, like in the royal blue dress and the red dress, create such a gorgeous silhouette. I picked a few of my favorites from their website.
