Christmas Day

..
I think Christmas is the best holiday. Now days whenever Christmas comes around people talk about the gifts, food, and spending time with family. But we forget what Christmas is truly about. The point of Christmas is to remember the birth of Jesus and all he has done for us. It's crazy how materialistic holidays have become. So I hope this just reminds you what Christmas is truly about and have a Merry Christmas!

1. Red Coat | Aritzia $300
2. Black Boots | Cole Haan $180
3. Black Bag | Cambridge Satchel Company $180
4. Stripe Top | Wood Wood $70
5. Black Jeans | Dorothy Perkins $39

Lace Up

..
Recently I have been looking for items to add to my wishlist and well you could say that list is very long. One of the items I was looking for was boots and I found the boots above. They are Freebird by Steven which is one of my favorite shoe brands. They have lace in the front and have a western/edgy look to them. I have never really been interested in boots with lace that look like them, but I guess my style is evolving. I really like them and I don't know why. So with that said I tried to continue the style of the boots throughout the look. I think the hat and sweater fit perfectly with the boots.

How has your style evolved?

1. Burgundy Sweater | Chiara Fashion $23 (other options 1,2)
2. Freebird Boots | Freebird by Steven $350 (other options 1,2)
3. Distressed Jeans | Frame Denim $210
4. Studded Fedora | PrettyLittleThing $27 (other options 1,2)

Christmas Morning

..
When it comes to pajamas the comfort factor to me will always be more important than the style factor. You could say pajamas are my excuse to have that one outfit that is really bad. I didn't apply that excuse above, but found a really good middle. At first I was going to choose items that felt like Christmas, but instead I went with items that had that wintery/holiday look/feel. On the first look I chose to put some plaid in it because I love plaid pajamas and they are perfect for that time of year. When on the second look I thought the phrase Stay Up All Night was perfect for Christmas because I love to stay up and I gave the wintery feel with the slippers.

1. Black Sweatshirt | H&M $18
2. Plaid Shorts | Forever 21 $6
3. Up All Night PJ | Wildfox $150
4. Moccasin Slipper | UGG $120
5. Holiday Slipper | Target $24

Thanksgiving With Style

Fall
I think my favorite part of Thanksgiving is the food. Turkey, mash potatoes,and green beans, who doesn't like comfort food the only thing missing is mac and cheese. Starting last year or the year before I have made my favorite pumpkin cookies (you can find the recipe here). Heads up if you make these cookies you may have to make extra icing because you may eat it all before the cookies are done :). But that isn't what it's all about. Thanksgiving is a time to realize all the things you are grateful for which could be family, friends, or even a roof over your head.

Back to the clothes you want to be comfy because after eating all the food you may wear a size up then what you are wearing when you get there :). You can check out last years thanksgiving outfit here which is very comfy looking with the sweater. Above are some great fall peices fur vest, riding boots, and a plaid top great worn apart and really great together.

One last thing is the bag above is from Angela & Roi which is a store that specializes in handbags (link here). But that's not the only good part the main thing is depending on which color of bag you buy they donate to a special cause. For example if you buy a pink bag they donate to a cause for breast cancer. So you're not just getting a great bag, but you are also getting the satisfaction of knowing some of the money goes to a special cause. Here is a chart below, so you can get an idea of what color bag goes to what cause.

1. Plaid Top | Rag & Bone
2. Crossbody Bag | Angela & Roi $93
3. Fur Vest | Forever21 $38
4. Riding Boots | Sole Society $130
5. Skinny Jeans | Frame Denim $210

Nail Polish

Fall
In the past couple years I have really loved nail polish and started building my collection. It can help pull an outfit together, express how you feel that day, or even express the type of style you want to have. For example if you want to be edgy wear a darker color, if you want to be girly try a pastel color, and if you want to just be creative wear a bright color. There are so many colors out there to try, so no collection is to big. Everyone can use nail polish to express who they are. The colors I picked above are colors I think are good to have for fall/winter and I even included some basic colors that are good with any outfit and any season. Right now I am loving my new metallic nail polish and it's just so unique.

What is your favorite nail polish right now?

1. Oxblood | Deborah Lippmann $17
2. Emerald | Deborah Lippmann $17
3. Nude | Deborah Lippmann $17
4. Dark Grey | Deborah Lippmann $17
5. Ruby Red | Essie $9
6. Chrome | Essie $9
7. Light Brown | butter LONDON $15
8. Dark Purple | butter LONDON $15

Stripes & Plaid

Fall
My two favorite patterns are stripes and plaid, so this is one of my favorite outfits on my blog. I don't think a person can have to many striped and plaid items in their closets especially for fall and winter. They are so easy to mix together because they are so close to each other. Those two patterns are pretty much in the same pattern family. Because I put two different patterns in one outfit I made sure to keep everything else in the outfit very simple. So I just went with a basic black leather jacket great for fall, basic lace-up booties which are very big right now, and a black bucket bag which is also really big right now.

Patterns can be really tricky when it comes to mixing them. I try to keep the patterns basic and not so bold because it's easiest that way. Here are some tips when mixing patterns: 1. get patterns in similar color(s) (for example if one print is a shade of red try to find another print in another shade of red), 2. get one pattern in neutral colors and the other pattern can be in fun colors (above is an example of that), 3. get one pattern in a bigger size and the other  pattern in a smaller size (that will make the outfit not so busy looking), and 4. get patterns that are close in look (above is an example of that).

What are your favorite patterns and patterns to mix?

1. Leather Jacket | Topshop $85
2. Striped Top | Wood Wood $100 (other option 1)
3. Bucket Bag | Asos $44 (other option 1)
4. Plaid Skirt | Alice & Olivia $180 (other options 1,2,3,4,5)
5. Lace-Up Booties | Zara $90 (other options 1,2,3,4,5)

Fall Must Haves

Fall
I couldn't add everything above because my fall must haves list is just so long. It's long because most fall clothes make really good wardrobe basics. If you are looking for wardrobe basics make sure to look during fall because you will find most of them then. I have been trying to find as many of my fall clothes/basics right now and I am having great luck. I just have a few items left to find and cross off my fall/basics list. Most of you probably know by now that fall is my favorite season for clothes. I just love the styles and colors that are used. When it comes to clothing I like darker colors because they are easier to style, they go with most things, and I just love darker colors (like burgundy and etc). I also made sure to add something burgundy above.

What are some of your must have fall clothes?

1. Coated/Leather or Black Jeans | Current/Elliot $248
2. Cargo/Green Pants | American Eagle $50 (other option 1)
3. Leather Jacket | Topshop $104 (other option 1)
4. Army Jacket | Calypso St. Barth $165 (other option 1)
5. Dark Wash Jeans | Dorothy Perkins $27
6. Chambray Top | Madewell $70 (other option 1)
7. Plaid Top | LNA $75 (great because there are so many different color options)
8. Stripe Top | Wood Wood $100 (other option 1)
9. Wide Brim Fedora | Michael Stars $58
10. Burgandy Sweater | Miss Selfridge $57 (any color sweater is good especially a neutral one)

12. Black Boot | MIA $60 (any height of boot is good try to stick with black or brown)

Halloween: Black Cat

Halloween
I think the black cat costume is the easiest one to create. All you need is an all black outfit with some fur, cat ears/tail, and makeup. Here are some pictures for makeup (here). I thought the sweater above was really cute for this outfit because there is a cat on it. I also added a fur vest and cat ears because that really helps make the look and tell people what your suppose to be other then the makeup.

What do you think about the Black Cat idea?

1. Cat Sweater | SheInside $30
2. Black Jeans |  Current/Elliot $450
3. Cat Ears | Charlotte Russe $6
4. Fur Vest | Lookbook Store $30
5. Black Booties | Rag & Bone $500

Halloween: Comic Book Character

Halloween

The Comic Book Character has been a recently popular and unique costume idea. Whenever creating this outfit I remembered the Phillip Lim Target collection and the top above. I knew it was a perfect fit and I also wanted to add a trench coat because the female comic book characters always have that classic trench coat. This trench coat is very colorful and comic books are very colorful, so it fits the theme perfectly. A long time ago I came upon an Etsy shop that has a lot of unique comic book action headbands/clips and I hunted it down and found the headpiece above. I think that accessory just adds a cute and unique feel to the look.

Do you like the Comic Book Character Halloween idea?

1. Trench Coat | Target $18
2. Boom Sweatshirt | Target $30
3. Skinny Jeans | Acne $250
4. Bam! Headpiece | JanineBasil 24
5. Rain Boots | Hunter $140
6. Clear Clutch | Nasty Gal $50

Halloween: Greek Goddess

Halloween
One of my favorite ideas for Halloween would be the Greek Goddess. What makes it my favorite is the overall look and the overall peices in the look. I am a huge fan of flowy dresses, sandals, and cuff type jewelry. My favorite piece from this outfit would be the shoes because they have wings on them and reminded me of the Greek mythology character Hermes. Which makes them extra perfect for this look.

Do you like the Greek Goddess look for Halloween?

1. Flowy Dress | Modekungen $200
2. Leaf Headpiece | Bloom Design Studio $38
3. Cuff Bracelet | Karine Sultan $72
4. Greek Sandals | Ancient Greek Sandals $205
5. Gold Necklace | Kenneth Jay Lane $200

Halloween: Mermaid

Halloween
Dressing up as a Mermaid for Halloween is difficult I think because it can go in the wrong direction really fast. When people hear mermaid they probably think of Ariel, but whenever people dress up as Ariel it can be a little cheesy/kiddy. You don't have to have a swimsuit top and tail on for the costume. You can find other items with similarities that will have the same feel, but in a more adult look. With that said I chose this sequin skirt to symbolize the tail, but you can actually wear this any time of the year. I also really liked the necklace above because it's a mermaid and the tail looks like the skirt.

What do you think of the Mermaid idea for Halloween?

1. Corset Top | Tilly's $15
2. Sequin Skirt | Sabine $150
3. Gold Sandals | Asos $30
4. Mermaid Necklace | SwayChic $5

Halloween: Flapper

Halloween
When it comes to Halloween costume ideas I noticed that the Flapper idea is a very popular one. On this post I wanted to show you my version of the Flapper costume. I made sure to add sparkle because whenever I think of a flapper dress and headpiece I always think of sequins and sparkle. I also stuck with a neutral based color scheme.

Are you a fan of the Flapper costume idea?

1. Sequin Dress | Asos $214
2. Feather Headpiece | Charlotte Russe $8
3. Clutch Bag | Dorothy Perkins $35
4. Nude Sandals | Gianvito Rossi $900
5. Bracelet Set | Forever New $20

Fall "It" Hat

maxi skirt!
One thing that I have seen everywhere and I call the "It" hat for fall is the wide brim fedora. I know it's everywhere, but I really like it and hope it stays. I think it makes a really cute accessory and it's perfect for fall. It really adds something extra to just a simple outfit and can go with most things. I also added a burgundy bag and coated jeans because burgundy is a favorite color for fall and coated jeans are also a good must have for fall. I think coated jeans are a better option than leather pants because they are comfier and still have that leather look.

1. White T-Shirt | Alexander Wang (Other Option 1)
2. Burgundy Bag | Rebecca Minkoff $195
3. Coated Jeans | Current/Elliott $248
4. Black Booties | Rag & Bone $495  
5. Black It Hat | Michael Stars $58

Military Jacket

maxi skirt!
Fall is here and that means I can now wear my boots, jackets, and anything else that the hot weather didn't let me. Fall is my favorite season for clothes because fall clothes are very cozy, casual, and make great basics for a closet. An essential must have for fall I believe is a military jacket. It can be very versatile if styled correctly (you can wear it with a dress, jeans, or with really anything). A military jacket is one thing I believe one can splurge on if they want to because it will stay in your closet forever and like I said before it is very versatile. Any top would be great with this outfit, but I just really love grey and green together.

Do you have a military jacket?
What is a fall must have for you?

1. Military Jacket | Urban Outfitters $59
2. Grey Tank Top | Rebecca Taylor $58
3. Skinny Jeans | American Eagle $30
4. Crossbody Bag | Forever 21 $28
5. Black Moto Boots | Mia  Shoes $59

Haul Time!

maxi skirt!
I have never been one to buy a lot of clothes. I usually like to buy stuff that is a need for my closet and not a want (unless I find myself going back to it a lot). I thought a post about some items I bought recently would make a good post. This isn't a big haul, but it's stuff I really needed for my closet. A very big goal of mine is to create the closet of my dreams, so I have been on the search for the perfect items to accomplish that goal. When creating the perfect wardrobe I think everyone should start with finding the perfect basics (dark wash skinny jeans, white/black top, black boots, flats, and etc). I have had such a hard time finding the perfect white/black v-neck top and have finally found them. I also have been trying to find the perfect moto boots and these are great because they are basic enough to go with a lot of outfits. I didn't want moto boots that had studs on them because I find that I would have less outfits to wear them with.

What are some of your wardrobe basics that you wear a lot?

1. V-neck Top | Asos $16.88
2. Home T | The Home T $28
3. Moto Boots | Mia Shoes $70

Free People

maxi skirt!
I feel so bad for not posting the past couple weeks. I really tried but with my schedule I wasn't able to create any post. I just started school a couple weeks ago, so with that starting up again I have been so busy. With all that said I wanted to create a post including some items that I just got in the mail. If you follow me on twitter or facebook you probably read how I couldn't wait for my clothes to come in the mail. You can check out the items on the Finds App (link here).

Free People is one of my favorite shops and after shopping online for an hour I usually have half the site in my basket. If I got a million dollars this would be the first place I would go. I just can't get enough of it they have the perfect clothing for every season. One of my favorite styles is bohemian clothing, so Free People obviously takes care of that. I've also been on the hunt for the perfect maxi skirt and after three months I have finally found it. The maxi skirt above is perfect for any outfit/style and looks amazing on.

Do you like Free People?

1. Lace Crop Top | Free People $48
2. Black Maxi Skirt | Free People $68
3. Black Sandals | Free People $85
4. Black Fedora | Free People $98

Back 2 School

maxi skirt!I have never done this type of post yet on my blog and I thought this is the perfect time to. On this post I wanted to create an outfit for those who are going back to school very soon or who already have gone back to school. Rather your in college or high school this outfit is perfect for both. The one thing I love most about this outfit is that it has that cool girl in school look to it and this outfit will definitely give you a new kind of confidence. I also made sure to have shoes that are flat because there is a lot of walking and you want to be comfy.

What is your back to school style?

1. Leather Jacket | Topshop $104 (other options 1,2)
2. Leather Bag | Free People $48
3. Grey Tank | Rebecca Taylor $58
4. Moto Booties | Ash $383 (other options 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)
5. Skinny Jeans | A&F $88

All Black

maxi skirt!
A couple post back I mentioned my mixed opinions on the all white trend and how I don't know if I like it or not. On this post I am going to discuss my only opinion on the all black trend and that opinion is I really love it. I just can't get enough of the all black trend it looks good any way its worn (well when it's worn appropriately like these 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11). Also fall is only a month away and I think this trend is perfect to try once fall gets a little closer and the weather cools down.

Would you try the all black trend?

1. Black Hat | Rag and Bone $175 (other options 1,2,3,4,5,6)
2. Black Shorts | Ksubi $180 (other options 1,2)

Travel Bag and Blog's 1st Birthday

maxi skirt!
Sorry for not posting sooner I have been so busy lately and haven't been on my laptop long enough to edit any post. I was sick then just busy doing other stuff and with all that I completely forgot that my blog is officially a year old. I am super happy and thankful for all the things my blog/I have accomplished in just 1 year. I just want to thank everyone who is following my blog! I probably would have stopped blogging a long time ago, but each follow and comment gives me that extra motivation and excitement to blog!

When traveling you always want to bring a carry on bag. Make sure you get a big enough one that can carry all the little or big extra things you need. Like your laptop/Ipad, earbuds, socks, makeup bag, cardigan/wrap, passport, hat, glasses, food, change of clothes, and etc. I mean you can imagine with just the list of things above how much space you would need. I just put some things above that I feel most people should need in their carry on. The things that are going to be in your carry on is obviously going to be different because everyone has their own needs when it comes to traveling.

1. Carry On | Frank Clegg $865
2. Socks (good to put on in the plane) | Option 1
3. Hat (good if you have your hair down or having a bad hair day) | Rag and Bone $175
4. Ipad Case | Saturday $50
5. Passport | Saturday $40
6. Cardigan | River Island (other option 1)

Travel In Style

maxi skirt!
A while back I did a post about what to wear when traveling. I wanted to sort of update that outfit and show you another look. On the last look I chose to stick with a black and white look. This time I decided to go another path and pick more brown peices. I am definitely a fan of neutrals because they are easy to style and just simple. This is going to be a two part post series and the second part is going to include some more things that I couldn't fit above.

1. Light Top (top above is from here). I think a light top is best because since it's light you will be very comfy and you won't get sweaty. Comfort is key when it comes to your traveling outfit. It's also very simple, so it can go with anything if you want to make your own version of the perfect traveling outfit.

2. Stretchy Pants (jeans above are from here). Any bottoms with stretch are fine I just prefer skinny jeans. I like to stretch my legs in the plane, so that's why I like to wear stretchier bottoms. Also when traveling the airport or plane can be cold sometimes, so longer bottoms are good for that.

3. Flat Shoes (shoes above are from here). With traveling comes a lot of walking, so always wear flat shoes. Sandals, flats, and sneakers are good choices. I usually wear shoes that are very easy to take on and off because when your in the air your feet swell. I also change into socks when I get into the plane.

4. Travel Bag (bag above is from here). You will definitely want to take a bag with you to carry on because it can hold a lot of the little things you will need. Some things are electronics, food, jacket, blanket, makeup bag, pillow, and etc.

5. Another tip is to wear your hair up because your hair can get extremely gross looking from the plane ride. If you wear your hair down I suggest wearing a hat through the airport. Hats are really great for bad hair days. You can also put a hat in your carry on bag.

Backless

maxi skirt!
I have been loving backless dresses lately. They are just perfect for summer and they are good for this heat. It has been extremely hot, so having the back open can show off that tan and cool you off a little. It also can add that little something to any dress. Above are some of my favorite choices that I have found online. I just think they are so cute. Plus they are maxi dresses which are also great for summer.

Would you try anything that is Backless?

1. Black Dress | For Love & Lemons $262
2. Blue Dress | Blu Moon $282
3. Feather Dress | Blu Moon $198

maxi skirt!
Back in January I did a post about what I think everyone should have in their bag. I decided to do an updated version of that post with more items that I think everyone should have during the summertime. I added a makeup bag again in this post because that can carry all the little extra things you need for summer like chapstick, perfume, and etc. I also added a water bottle because you should always be hydrated especially during the summertime.

Hippie Chic

maxi skirt!
On my last post I talked about the kimono trend and I have sort of continued it to this post. I styled the kimono trend differently this time though. The last one was styled on the more boho/edgy side and this one is styled on the more feminine/boho side. That is why I named this post hippie chic because it has that boho feel and whenever someone says chic I think of clothing that has more of a feminine feel. My favorite piece from this outfit are the shoes and I was shocked to see that they are from Ugg Australia. Also I would wear just a plain white t-shirt under the kimono.

Would you try the Hippie Chic look?

1. Floral Kimono | In Love with Fashion $64 (other option 1)
2. Skinny Jeans | Paige Denim $189
3. Black Sandals | Ugg Australia $107 (other options 1,2,3,4,5,6,7)
4. White T-Shirt | Options 1,2,3,4,5

Kimono

kimono
I have been seeing a lot of kimonos on pinterest lately and I really have been liking them. One thing that I noticed is that they are really difficult to pull off and they really have to be styled correctly. I find that they look best when styled on the edgy/boho side. That is why I loved the kimono above, it has that edgy/boho feel and has a western/tribal look to it. Also I think a fringe bag would look great with the look/theme of this outfit.

Would you try the kimono trend?

1. Tribal Kimono | Spell & the Gypsy $149
2. Grey Tank | Rebecca Taylor $58 (other options 1,2)
3. Western Booties | Nine West (other option 1)
4. Black Cutoffs | One Teaspoon (other option 1)
5. Fringe Bags | Options 1,2,3

All White

maxi skirt!
When it comes to the all white trend, I am definitely one with mixed opinions. I think it's great for summer, but I get really novice when wearing anything that is white. I'm always thinking I'm going to get something on it and worry all throughout the day and have to check. I mean I would hate to sit on something and not notice it all day. Hopefully one day I will grow out of that little fear and try the trend out. If I do this is what I would wear.

Would you try the all white trend?

1. White Top | Brian Lichtenberg $60
2. White Skort | Zara $50
3. White Sandals | Zara $80

4th of July

maxi skirt!
I know it's not really close to the 4th of July, but I have been on a patriotic high lately and wanted to show you what I would wear on the 4th of July. Stars and stripes are one of my favorite prints/patterns, so I knew that I wanted to incorporate them some how in the outfit. I also wanted to incorporate red, white, and blue into the outfit. So I picked the top to incorporate the stars in the outfit and the shoes to incorporate the stripes and red, white, and blue.

1. Star Sweater | Wildfox $229 (other options 1,2,3,4,5)

Overalls

maxi skirt!
I never thought that overalls would come back, but the 90s is making its way back. I also never thought I would be posting them on my blog, but I wanted to show you how I would wear them because they are so popular right now. I remember when I was in the second grade and one day my teacher told us to wear as many pockets as we could the next day. As soon as I got home I went to my closet to find my overalls.

Coral

maxi skirt!
Coral is one of my favorite colors for summer. It looks really good with a tan and adds the perfect touch of sweetness to any outfit. I think grey goes really well with coral, so I added a touch of grey with the tank top. When creating the perfect outfit to go with these coral shorts I spotted this Joie jacket online and thought it would make the perfect pairing. The leaves on the jacket are just great for spring/summer. To finish the outfit off I added sandals and although I didn't add a bag above a tote bag would be perfect. I hope you like it!

How would you wear coral?

1. Leaf Jacket | Joie $298
2. Grey Tank Top | Rebecca Taylor $58 (other option 1)
3. Coral Shorts | M2F $62 (other options 1,2,3)
4. Black Sandals | Ancient Greek Sandals $157

Pineapples

maxi skirt!
It's amazing how much a persons style can change in a year or even a couple of months. I remember seeing clothes like the dress above and saying to myself who would wear something like that. It's a lot of pineapple, but it's perfect for summer. I feel like my blog has helped evolve my style and open my eyes to different styles.

How has your style changed over the year(s)?

1. Pineapple Dress | Urban Outfitters $62
2. Fringe Bag | Chicwish $38 (other option 1)
3. Black Sandals | Zara $40

Pray For Oklahoma

 photo 826b7a53-672a-400d-be98-ae0127a1af5f_zps09fa5c51.jpg I haven't been posting lately because I have been extremely busy with all the tornadoes happening and etc. This week has been a very sad week, a lot of homes and lives were lost. I wasn't effected by any tornadoes, but a lot of others were and I just ask for everyone to pray for everyone in Oklahoma. Any donations possible are also welcomed. You can probably find a lot of places to donate to by searching for donations for Oklahoma. I just thank you right now for any prayers and donations that have already happened and for any that happen in the future.

Pool Side

maxi skirt!
It's finally starting to get hot where I live and that means I get to hit the pool soon. For those who live by a beach this is also a great outfit for the beach. I wanted to show you an outfit that I thought was pool side ready. When going to the pool I always make sure to have comfy, light, and loose items on. That is why I chose just a plain black dress that can easily become a cover up. I didn't add a bag above, but I would add a tote bag to this outfit. Also if you don't want to wear a dress/cover up some cutoffs and a loose/flowy top are great options to.

1. Black Dress | Joie $278 (other options 1,2)
2. Swimsuit | Mara Hoffman $220
3. Black Sandals | Ancient Greek Sandals $156

Denim On Denim

maxi skirt!
One trend that has been around for a while now that I am finally really liking is denim on denim. I haven't tried it yet, but definitely will in the future. When it comes to denim on denim I feel like it looks best with different shades of denim. I say that because when the denim pieces are the same shade it can look like to much denim. That is why I chose a lighter washed chambray top with shorts that are mainly white. Also I like to give outfits an edgy feel, so I added some edgy accessories.

1. Chambray Top | Madewell $70 (other options 1,2,3)
2. White Shorts | Abercrombie $58 (other option 1)
3. Black Bag | Elliott Lucca $98
4. Black & White Sandals | BCBG $275

Emerald

maxi skirt!
Emerald is the color of 2013 and I am so happy to hear that. Emerald is one of my favorite colors and my birthstone color. Now you know I am a May baby. I love the color emerald but always have trouble finding clothes that I like that are that color. So when I saw the skirt above I knew I had to post it. When it comes to emerald I am very picky about what shade of emerald I like. My favorite shade of emerald is the dark emerald. Also I didn't put a leather jacket above, but I would add a leather jacket to make it a little more edgy.

What is your opinion on the color emerald?

1. Black Top | Joie $178
2. Emerald Skirt | Tibi $147
3. Black Clutch | Warehouse $43
4. Black Wedges | Nasty Gal $58

Black & White

maxi skirt!
Some of you probably have noticed I post a lot of black and white items on post. I guess I just gravitate towards black and white items because they make good basics. I try to add the occasional pop of color when it comes to post, but always go back to the basics. So on this post I made sure to add a pop of color and picked the jacket to be that lucky item.

How do you add color into your daily outfits?

1. White Top | Joie
2. Black Shorts | Net-A-Porter $180
3. Red Jacket | Mango $99
4. Black Sandals | Ancient Greek Sandals $158

Coachella

I had such a fun time doing the mini series on coachella I wish it wasn't over. I hope you liked all the outfits and thanks for checking out my mini series! So to finish it off I thought of posting a collage of photos that gave the best feel of coachella.

The photos in the collage came from Pinterest.

Coachella: Outfit 3

maxi skirt!
I wasn't able to post the third outfit I created for coachella during the first weekend because I was sick, but I am better just in time to post it during the second weekend of coachella. I saw some photos of people wearing army jackets and saw others wearing hunter boots, so I thought adding them in one outfit together would be a cute idea. This outfit is the more edgy outfit out of all three I think with the army jacket. I hope you like it!

1. Army Jacket | Abercrombie (other options 1,2,3)
2. Denim Shorts | Abercrombie $58
3. White Top | Hollister $25
4. Hunter Boots | Hunter $140

Coachella: Outfit 2

maxi skirt!
Here is the second outfit that I created for coachella if I was lucky enough to live close enough to go. This outfit is more laid back then the last outfit because I added cut offs and sandals. I knew that I didn't want the outfits to similar when it came to accessories, so instead of using fringe and booties on this outfit I added feathers and sandals. Fringe and feathers are the first two things I think of when thinking about accessories for coachella. I also just love the top and swimsuit above because of the embroidery/cut outs. You can also add a hat and a tote bag to this look.

What would you wear to coachella?

1. White Top | Joie $218
2. Black Cut Offs | Net-A-Porter $180
3. Feather Necklace | Ettika $55
4. Red Swimsuit | Zimmermann $240
5. Black Sandals | Ancient Greek Sandals $158

It seems like I haven't done an outfit post in so long and thought it's a great time to start again. Starting today I am going to do a mini series every other day with outfits that I would wear to coachella. The mini series will end once coachella is done. I sadly don't live close enough so I can't go, but I can still post about it. So with that said here is the first outfit that I created that I thought was perfect for coachella. It has that boho feel but also is a little edgy with the shoes. When I saw the dress above I immediately thought about coachella.You can also add a hat to this look. I hope you like this outfit and will check out my mini series.
