Happy Fall y’all!

I am so excited that it is finally Fall. Sadly in San Diego we still have some weather changing to go through, but luckily we were blessed with cloudy skies and cooler temperatures this past week.  I was glad the weather was kind of enough to cool off for me because I really wanted to start shooting some fall looks for all of you. I love dressing for fall more than any other season, and I have been waiting to break out some of my cooler weather clothes. This outfit will be great with a coat and some tights when the weather actually starts to get cold.

I love the simplicity of this outfit. I have plenty of white and black in my wardrobe, so it’s always easy for me to make outfits with a lot of basics/neutrals. Overall dresses are perfect for Fall because they’re comfortable, and they are so much to style. This particular one is a corduroy fabric, so it’s actually a little warm too.  My favorite way to wear the overall dress is by pairing it with a high neck top. The top I’m wearing in the photo above is actually from H&M, and I bought it from their end of season sale before this past spring. I may not be able to find the exact one for you all, but I will link a few similar options. The ruffle detailing on the neck and sleeves are my favorite part about this simple sweater. It adds a little something to the outfit so it’s not so plain.

For accessories I went with my favorite pair of patent black leather booties by Calvin Klein. I found these last fall season at TJ Maxx, so I may not be able to link them. Patent leather is definitely on trend this year though, so it will be easy to find many other affordable options. I also wore my cabby cap which I love! They’re a trend, so don’t go splurge on one. This one does the job, and I love the way it complements an array of outfits. The earrings were to add a jewelry element which polished off the look, and gold went along with the accents on my purse. If you’ve never had a Dune London purse they are great quality for the price. I scooped this one up at TJ Maxx, but you can find them online too.

Thank you all for reading my posts! I’ve been a bit down on myself lately, but I think finally getting a post up will make me feel a lot better.

What’s your favorite fashion piece for Fall?

Red, White, and Denim

Top: Forever 21

Shorts: Vintage Levi’s

Shoes: ASOS

Backpack: Tommy Hilfiger (TJ Maxx)

Bandana: ASOS

Belt: Vintage

 

I haven’t worn a crop top like this in a while, but it’s been incredibly hot here in San Diego so I gave in. I went for a super classic combo when I paired the white crop top with my favorite pair of vintage Levi’s denim shorts. I really love the simplicity of this outfit, and I’m a big fan of adding pops of color to such a simple look. I opted for one of my bandanas from ASOS, and this super cute backpack by Tommy Hilfiger that I actually scored at TJ Maxx. This backpack is normally $118, but at TJ Maxx it was only $30! That’s such a great deal, and it’s one of the reasons I don’t buy expensive items because I can usually find a better deal.

I really love this outfit for summer because it’s very easy to throw on, but I can still look put together. Also I’m not sure if any of you can tell by these photos, but I finally got my haircut! I don’t think I had even gotten a trim in the past year, so I was well overdue for one. I believe I cut about five inches off, and my hair is still very long. I actually wish I had cut a few more off, but I think I’ll do the next time I get it cut. I may grow out my hair like that again because I would really like to donate my hair when it gets to that length. I’ll probably do it before next summer, and then I can jump on the “lob” train that I’m extremely late for.

One of the biggest reasons why I never cut my hair is because I’m lazy. If I were to cut my hair into a lob style I would have to style it every single day. When my hair is long I feel like I can just brush it and walk out the door. However, I would really like to get better about doing my hair. I rarely do anything to it, and because it’s so long I tend to wear it in a bun 90% of the time. I need some different lazy girl hairstyles, and I’m not very good at braiding. I can do a basic one, but it would probably take me awhile to get a hang of all the different braid variations.

What are you go to hairstyles especially for when you’re feeling lazy? Leave your answer below in the comments!

Hello!

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for a blog post! I’ve had a very exciting week. I have been awaiting a very lovely invitation from RewardStyle, so that I could use their LiketoKnowit platform, and I received my invitation just a few days ago! It was a really exciting moment for me, and being such a small blogger it really is a huge step for me. Within the next few weeks there will be a few changes made to my site you may have already noticed that theres a new shop tab up on the site. I wanted to be able to share items from my closet, my skincare and beauty products, and possibly some items that are even on my shopping list. All of this will be much easier, and user-friendly because I’m now a part of the RewardStyle family. If you have not checked out my Instagram yet you should! You can now like or screenshot my Instagram photos, and check out the exact products I’m wearing on the LiketoKnowit app! It’s a free app where you can find multiple influencers posts, and find the pieces you love all on one convenient app! I hope you all find these changes to be great, and I would definitely appreciate feedback! I love all of the support, and want to make sure that my readers are happy with my site.

Ok on to this look! The top I’ve had for years, so I won’t be able to link it. However, any simple white shirt would work. I recommend having multiple white t-shirts in your closet that you love they’re a closet staple! I wear them multiple times a week, and because each has a slight variation from the other they never get boring. The skirt is one of my new favorite pieces in my closet because honestly I’m a sucker for stripes. I gravitate towards anything with stripes on it while I’m shopping. Somehow I feel that they always make me look put together. This skirt in particular happens to be from forever 21, and despite it being a little loose in the waist it’s a great fit. I love the buttons down the front, and the length because it’s not too short. I’ll link a similar option along with the exact piece, but the skirt was so affordable I don’t know how you could pass it up!

If you read my last post The Little Red Sundress you would have read a little bit about the Spring app. I got a pair of beautiful block heels off of there, and these mules are also from the app! These are blush suede mules, and they are amazing. They’re on sale on The Spring app, or Shop Spring online. They have great deals on a bunch of ALDO shoes. There’s going to be a Shop The Post below where you can check out some of the items in this post which I think you’ll like better than my old links.

What is your favorite shoe brand? If you don’t have one what’s your go to shoe?

Happy Saturday!

I’m still working on being consistent with the blog, but I have been dealing with the loss of a very close family member these past two weeks. My blog had to sit on the back burner for a while, but I swear I will become consistent. My goal is to post twice a week, but I haven’t decided which days of the week I’d like to stick with just yet. I’m definitely thinking Fridays or Saturdays, and then a day earlier on in the week.

When it comes to planning things out for the blog, or even for everyday life I have a hard time. I recently started creating a bullet journal, and I think it could really help me out. Have you ever used a bullet journal before? If so did it help keep you more organized? I’m really interested in finding out if it will help me, and if not I’m willing to try a million other ways. I have my next semester starting in a few weeks, so if bullet journaling works for me it will be a great help with school too.

Alright let’s talk about this super cute sundress. First of all it’s on sale for less than $30, so you should definitely click where I’ve linked below to check it out. This dress is super comfortable, and can easily be dressed up or down. I chose to dress it up a little bit, but you could easily pair it with sneakers or sandals too. I normally stray away from a lot of color, and I think this is the only red item of clothing I own! Once in a while it’s nice to try something a little different in your wardrobe, and in this case I really liked the color. The shoes I wore it with are from Aldo, and they’re super comfortable. I’ve wanted a pair of shoes like these for a while, and when I saw them on sale I had to buy them. I actually purchased the shoes on the Spring app. I may have to do a post on Spring because it’s a really great app for finding deals on some of your favorite brands.

I hope if you are afraid of color, or maybe you only wear color that you will try a new piece that may scare you just a little bit! Don’t be afraid to try something new 🙂

Do you wear a lot of monochrome looks, or are you all about color? Let me know in the comments below!

The Dress: Parisian-Off-The-Shoulder Dress from ASOS

The Shoes: Villarosa Cognac Block Heels from ALDO shoes

The Bag: Faux Leather Half Moon Bag from Forever 21. I couldn’t find the exact bag anymore, but I like this option in black or white.

The Necklace: Double Horn Necklace from GypsyStarsRVA Etsy shop. H&M did not have the necklace on their website, but I love this one too.

Hello!

If I could apologize a million times for disappearing this past month that would be great. I’m incredibly disappointed in myself right now because I feel like I gave up on the blog! I didn’t really mean to just stop blogging, but I am promising to step it up and get back on track. The hardest thing about being a fashion blogger, at least for me, is taking all these photos. My boyfriend is great, but I don’t want to bug him all the time to take my pictures. Then there’s photographers, but I’m not in the right place to be paying someone to take photos for me (no matter how good they are). Anyways those are my apologies and excuses now lets move on to the good stuff.

This outfit was super simple, and super comfortable for the light summer weather we were having yesterday. Every piece except for the hat is a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve worn this off the shoulder top so many times already, and I know I’ll still be wearing it until summer is over. I love that the top, and the hat are both on trend because I easily found them at Forever 21 at an affordable price. I’m pretty in love with the boater hat style, and with the pom pom details I think this one is adorable. A cute accessory plus sun protection? I’m all for it. The Jeans. These jeans were on mega sale when I stopped by the Gap outlet factory store. These are normally $70 jeans, but I walked out only paying $17!!! That’s such a score! Now online they’re currently $25, but that’s still a great deal for these jeans. They look somewhat like vintage Levi’s. I love the wash, and they fit like a flattering mom jean. They have all the sizes left online, so I highly recommend that you have a look for yourself.

Oh and those earrings! I don’t normally wear statement earrings, or even earrings at all. However, these caught my attention as I walked past the clearance section in Target (if you haven’t realized by now I’m Target obsessed). They were only $5, and I thought they would be a great way to spruce up any simple outfit.

As always I’ve linked the pieces below!

What’s your favorite trendy piece for the summer?

Pom Pom Straw Boater Hat

Off-the-Shoulder Flounce Top Comes in 3 colors! It looks like a few sizes are sold out 🙁

Mid Rise Straight Crop jeans

Multi Tassel Drop Earrings Not the exact same earrings, but the same color scheme in a drop earring!

Nine West Square Nickel Buckle Belt

Hello! It’s been too long since I wrote a blog post, and I’m so excited to start focusing more on my content. Since finals are over and summer is starting I hope to post at least once a week if not more! Normally summer isn’t my favorite season; however, this year I really want to branch out with my wardrobe. I don’t normally wear a lot of color, so I’m using summer to experiment with color. Like in this really cute set. I’m wearing pink which I would normally stray away from, but it is starting to grow on me.

I love this set. It’s great for summer because it’s breathable material, and it’s even on trend with that little bardot top! I’ve also been obsessed with stripes lately. They go with everything, and they’re great for mixing prints. Another piece I wanted to point out are these shoes! They’re so comfortable, and they were less than $25!!!! Unlike the Adidas these aren’t as chunky, and have a much more feminine fit. I prefer this fit because they’re still a sporty shoe, but they don’t make my feet look enormous (plus I can’t argue with the price). I’ll have the exact pieces as well as some similar options linked down below for you as always!

What would you like to see more of on my blog this summer, outfit posts or travel posts? Comment below!

Striped Set: Boohoo Petite Striped Co-Ord

Shoes: ASOS Darby Lace Ups

Backpack: Guess Women’s Backpack This is not the exact same backpack, but it’s a very similar option made by Guess.

Another Striped Set: Missguided Petite Striped Shorts & Missguided Petite Striped Bardot Top This option is a little bit more pricey than the other, but I really like having a shorts option!

Both sets can have their pieces bought separately, so if you only like the top or the bottom you can just buy the one piece!

Also ASOS is have a 20% off memorial day weekend sale, so go grab those items with a discount while you can!!

Floral Jumpsuits

Jumpsuit: J by J.O.A for Target

Shoes: Target

Jean Jacket: Levi’s

Purse: Isabelle Handbags

Neck Scarf: Target

Watch: Michael Kors

I’m so happy that I was finally able to go out and shoot in this jumpsuit! It’s rare that I find the time to go on actual shoots for my posts. This time I met up with an old friend whom I work really well with and we managed to get some really great shots. As much as I love typical shoots that show street style literally in the streets I also love doing things a little differently. Getting to watch the sunset while taking pictures for my blog was amazing, and I hope to find some other really cool spots to shoot soon.

About the jumpsuit! I honestly didn’t think one of the best jumpsuits I’ve ever tried on would be from Target. I’m petite, so it’s very difficult to find jumpsuits that fit me properly. This particular one is too long on me, but with a pair of chunky heels I’m good to go.

I really love the color of this jumpsuit as well as the pattern for Spring. I also really like that the jumpsuit is fitted because it’s difficult for me to find jumpsuits that make me look good because I am petite. However, petite or not this jumpsuit would look great on so many body types, and skin tones. There’s a tie at the back that you can adjust, and a hidden zipper. Oh and did I mention the price? This jumpsuit was only $34.99!! That is such a good price for a well made jumpsuit. As always I’ll link it below for you guys.

Do you have a particular style that you’ve been wanting to try? If so share below in the comments!

Unfortunately Target does not have this jumpsuit online! I’m so upset! I will still try to link similar options for y’all.

Casual Friday

Hat: H&M

Top: TJ Maxx

Jeans: ASOS Petite

Shoes: Vans

Bag: Forever 21

Sunglasses: Lucky Brand

Bandana: Target

Hello! I have been having a hard time doing shoots for my blog lately, so I was very excited when I was able to get an outfit post up for all of you. I really have been loving blogging, and I really hope whoever checks out my page has been liking my content.

Anyways my weekends which happen to be during the week are often spent running errands, or coming up with new blog posts. So this was just what I wore to walk my downtown in, and get all my errands done. If you have been reading my blog you’ll have noticed this bandana has popped up in my last few posts, and I am honestly obsessed with it. I have quite a few bandanas, and they have been the accessory I have reached for the most lately. I’ve also been trying to get more into hats because I actually do enjoy wearing them. The wind knocked this one right off of my head a few times though while I was wearing it lol. The hat was definitely a steal that I found at H&M for less than $10 during their mid season sale.

The rest of the outfit I’ve had for awhile. They’re mostly basics that I have in my closet fro the days when I just need to throw something on. However, the sunglasses I did manage to find at TJ Maxx. I will try and link them for you, but it’s usually difficult to find their items online. As always I’ll link a few of the items down below!

What do you tend to wear on your days off?

River Island Petite Dark Wash Molly Jeans at ASOS. These are a very similar pair to mine. Mine are the ASOS brand Ridley fit, but they are no longer available on the website.

Straw Hat from H&M. This is the exact same style of hat as the one I’m wearing. It’s just in different colors, and I think it’s cuter than mine actually. Still only $13! (I may have to pick this one up!)

Slip-On Vans from Vans. Obviously you can get these anywhere, but I thought I would link them anyways. I’m actually in need of a new pair considering mine managed to gain a few coffee stains.

Classic Frame Sunglasses from TJ Maxx. I somehow managed to find these on their website!

Merona Floral Handkerchief from Target. I linked my exact one, but they have other options as well!

Spring in Venice, CA

Purse: Nine West

Top: Q

Jeans: ASOS Petite

Shoes: Forever 21

Watch: Michael Kors

Bandana: Target

Pineapple Sunnies: Target

I recently went up to LA just for a day trip, and the weather was dramatically different than it has been lately. It was 80 degrees out, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I love going to LA because it’s a fairly close place to go for a change of scenery, and I especially love the fashion scene up there. Living in San Diego there’s a lack of diverse fashion because it’s pretty slow paced, and everyone dresses pretty casual down here. I don’t feel so out of place in LA.

In these particular pictures I was walking around the Venice Canals which I actually had never been to before! I love all the houses on the canals because they’re all very different from one another. In fact I decided to take some pictures in front of someones house because I really loved the paint color, and the cacti!

If you read one of my previous posts, Off the Shoulder Tops & Suede Sandals, then you would know I love off the shoulder tops! They are definitely the trend for Spring, and I think they’re a great staple piece to have in your closet as well. I enjoy ones with various patterns, or really fun sleeves like the one I’m wearing here! I love the little ties at the end of the sleeves, and I think it’s a great added detail to make the top a little different. The jeans are my go to, and I also have features these shoes before. They’re SO comfortable, and can literally be worn with anything. I’ll link some similar, or exact pieces below for you guys!

Have you ever been to LA? If so share your favorite place there in the comments below!

For similar shoes: Steve Madden Suede Sandals . These have a shorter heel, but are still suede with similar strap detailing.

You can also check out my other post: Off the Shoulder Tops & Suede Sandals for more shoe options!

These are all really great options!

Why I Love Ipsy

I don’t know about you, but I have a really hard time trying out new makeup and skin care products. I don’t want to go to Sephora, and ask for all the free samples. I also don’t want to pay full price for something I may not like, or it may not agree with my skin.

And then these beautiful subscription services started popping up. Ipsy Was the very first subscription service I ever started using, and it is my favorite. I have loved almost every single product that has been sent to me, and the samples have made me want to buy the actual products.

Ipsy is only $10 a month (which is a total steal!). You get different products every month, and they’re curated just for you.

You can subscribe to Ipsy here: Ipsy.com

You can cancel anytime at no cost to you, so I definitely recommemd trying it out for a month!
