  • Make-up: A Strong Lip

    October 28, 2019 by

    You may have noticed that my make-up in most of my photos is fairly neutral. Today, I wanted to show off a strong lip for you guys! When doing a strong lip color, I like to keep my eyes understated. The point of make-up is to enhance your features. A strong lipstick highlights the beauty… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Sept. 29: Haul and OOTD

    September 29, 2019 by

    This past Friday, I went to the mall with some friends and picked up some new pieces I wanted to share with you! And, I wore them all today (because who can stay away from wearing their new stuff right away?) featured as my outfit of the day! What you CAN see in the photo… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Sept. 22: Re-purposing Project Completed!

    September 22, 2019 by

    I am super stoked to say that I finished my project of re-purposing my statement necklace. Twice it had snapped in the middle, but I loved it so much I couldn’t let it go completely! So… I took apart the necklace until I had just the beads. Then, I used chains I already had to… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Sept. 8 Part 2: Fit and Re-purposing

    September 9, 2019 by

    One of my “absolutes” in my style is that if it doesn’t fit, it either needs to go or has to change. Sometimes we love pieces and don’t want to get rid of them or we desperately want to try and make them fit. I understand – I’ve been guilty of that, myself. However, the… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Sept. 8 Part 1: My Style Adjectives

    September 9, 2019 by

    I had the opportunity to help raid a friend’s closet and help them brainstorm outfit ideas. It was a blast, and it also got me thinking about how I put my outfits together. I mentioned in a past post that a dynamic outfit often pairs pieces that captures multiple aspects of my personality. Below is… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Sept. 1: Outfit of the Day and Outfit Inspiration

    September 2, 2019 by

    This outfit of the day was inspired and made around my hat. I love this taupe large brimmed hat. It’s both fashionable and functional! I loved not squinting! I went with my black romper that you’ve seen before on a previous post – this time in a more funky, casual ensemble. I added my taupe… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Aug. 25: Outfit Inspiration

    August 25, 2019 by

    Sorry for the lack of a post on Friday. I accidentally scheduled August 23’s post for this coming Friday. Oopsies! So, you’ll see it then, and stay on the lookout for another post! With that said, let’s get into it! Today’s post is focused on outfit inspiration! At a dinner event thing-a-ma-jig, one of my… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Aug. 11: OOTD – Mixing Metallics

    August 11, 2019 by

    Hello hello! Today is another outfit of the day. The theme: don’t be afraid to mix metallics! Remember: all metallics are neutrals, so you can mix them however you want! I love pairing my gold clutch/wristlet with my bronze colored flats. I added a rose gold watch with a gold bangle, and metallic earrings to… Read more

  • Fashion Friday, Aug. 9: Business Casual OOTD

    August 9, 2019 by

    Summer is hot, but business casual environments requires more coverage. A balanced summer business casual outfit requires some effort to not bake in the sun and not freeze in the office. I am in love with these wide leg trousers! With a paperbag waist and light fabric, the pants flow without drowning my petite frame… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Aug. 4: New Booties!

    August 4, 2019 by

    Say hello to the new booties in my closet! With a 2.5 inch block heel and made by Dr. Scholl’s, these booties are stylish and comfortable! I ordered mine in a size 7. I always size a half size down when ordering heels, as I like a slightly tighter fit. I’m sure it would have… Read more

  • Fashion Friday, Aug. 2: Shine

    August 2, 2019 by

    It’s the post you’ve been waiting for… shine! Shine is such a fun way to add dimension. Materials that catch the light are always a great way to draw the eyes. Metallics are also considered neutrals, meaning mixing different metals is both okay and encouraged for a sense of modernity. The earrings (below) I got… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Jul 28: Clothes Reflect You

    July 28, 2019 by

    Clothes reflect who you are – for better or for worse. While some people think this is unfair (and sometimes it can be), it’s often proven to be true. Wearing a suit can give an air of professionalism, refinement, or even sloppy. It depends on how you wear it. A pink suit can say femininity… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Jul 21: Bra Power

    July 21, 2019 by

    Alright, ladies! Today we’re discussing a tool close to our hearts – literally! Bras are a powerful wardrobe tool. I should start by saying bras are not a requirement. If you really don’t want to wear a bra, then don’t! Feeling comfortable in your own skin is more important. That being said, bras do serve… Read more

  • Fashion Friday, Jul 19: Texture

    July 18, 2019 by

    We’re at the home stretch with part three of four outfit personality traits: texture! When I think about texture, my mind usually jumps to fall outfits. Sweaters, scarves, hats, fluffy socks, and coats give us a variety of texture options in the cooler weather. It’s less common in the summer, but still doable! One option… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Jul 14: The French Tuck

    July 14, 2019 by

    Season Four of Queer Eye is right around the corner. In the spirit of Tan France, I’m dedicating this post to the ever-powerful “french tuck.” I’ve done the french tuck long before I knew that was the name. (Did I feel cool when Tan did it on Queer Eye? Why yes, yes I did…) The… Read more

  • Fashion Friday, Jul 12: Patterns

    July 11, 2019 by

    Hello again! Last Friday I discussed the ways you can use color in an outfit. Continuing the “What Not to Wear” theme, next I’m going to cover patterns and ways to mix them for maximum outfit interest.  Patterns will naturally draw the eye to them. When it comes to outfits, it is best to put… Read more

  • Selfie Sunday, Jul 7: Outfits of the Day – Using Color

    July 7, 2019 by

    The first outfit is has a funky and casual feel. This patterned top is full of vibrant color. I adore the three quarter length sleeves. They can help create a feeling of femininity with more coverage than a t-shirt. I would wear this out for a fun casual event like a barbecue, karaoke, or a… Read more

  • Fashion Friday, Jul 5: Using Color

    July 4, 2019 by

    Color. Pattern. Texture. Shine. If that happens to sound familiar, “What Not to Wear” from TLC used these four elements of an outfit. These four in different amounts can show personality and visual interest within an outfit. Today’s topic: color. One of the great things about color is that it’s near limitless – even if… Read more
