What I’ve Been Up to Lately | August – September 2014

Good evening, world!

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, so posts have been slowly sadly. I decided as a way to keep in touch with y’all, I wanted to share some snapshots of my life including my first day of class selfie (top, middle) with my roommate (as you can tell, I am waaaaay excited for organic chemistry II) and even my birthday, which was this past week. I’m not huge into celebrating my birthday, but I am so grateful for all the love (and food, especially donuts haha) I received from family, old, and new friends.

Thanks so much for reading and being so patient with me! Have a lovely weekend! c:

It’s Gotta be Blue

Good morning, world!

One of my favorite color combinations lately is cobalt blue, baby pink, and white. Something about these colors is so fresh yet sweet. I bought this Ann Taylor dress last fall, but its classic cut is perfect even a year later (and similar dresses are in stores now!). It was pretty hot when I took these photos, so I didn’t wear a jacket, but for those who are now experiencing fall weather now (oh, how I envy you), just layering a white cardigan or a denim jacket is the perfect way to try out this sweet color combination.

Great Abstraction

Hello, world!

It’s been a couple weeks since I made a new video, so here we are with a new outfit of the day featuring a romper I bought in my last haul. There aren’t any signs of fall yet in Texas (it’s still really hot), but that doesn’t mean that I can’t incorporate some of my fall pieces with my summer wardrobe. Once the weather cools down a bit more, I’ll opt to wear some tights under this gorgeous abstract-printed romper from Forever 21, but until then, I’ll just stick with wearing it with some cool cutout booties (I got these over ago, and I love how versatile they are). 

Thank you so much for watching and reading my blog! Have a lovely weekend!~

Hello, world!

With fall just around the corner, I wanted to share some of the pieces I have my eye on. I’m currently saving my money and shopping my wardrobe this season, but I’m in love with Ann Taylor’s fall line (especially the coats and jackets), but don’t forget that if you are a student in college, you are able to get 15% off

I’m still settling into my schedule at University, but thank you for being so patient! Posts will be regular and consistent as soon as possible. 

Hope everyone had a lovely Labor day weekend, and have a lovely week!~

Mint Condition

Hello, world!

August is almost over, which means that fall is just right around the corner! I’m so excited to finally be able to wear jackets and sweaters again, but I don’t want to just put away all my spring and summer wardrobe just yet — like these mint pants from Zara, which are extremely comfortable and fit well. Lucky for me, pastels are a trend this fall. Balancing them out with neutral accessories — a trench coat and some booties, I instantly have a fall ready outfit, and I don’t have to shell out extra money for a new fall wardrobe.

How I Style a BLACK BLAZER

Hello, world!

I just started a new series on my channel where I style some of my closet essentials. Not only will it give you ideas of pieces to invest in, but it’ll also give you some inspiration on how to style the piece in different ways. 

First episode of my series features the staple for every working woman’s closet: a black blazer. I know that I shied away from wearing this piece since I was afraid I would look “too old”. However, I think it’s a piece that every woman should invest in, no matter what age. It will definitely be handy for internships and job interviews, but it can be versatile in making even the most simple and casual outfits instantly chic. 

Black blazer featured in this video is from Banana Republic (more info in my last post here). 

Thank you so much for reading and watching! Have a gorgeous day!~

One of the Boys

Hello, world!

From blazers to jeans, menswear is one of my favorite trends to incorporate into my everyday wardrobe. My staple, go-to outfit is already a button down and jeans, but trading in my skinnies for some boyfriend jeans and layering a black blazer, I suddenly have an outfit with some boyish charm.
