I’m back and I’m excited to share with you all my current obsession: oversized wide sleeve tops (think Kanye West). The material of the sweater is thick and soft, and fit better than I had anticipated! I also had to throw on this killer embroidered bomber from DOPE. I’ve seen that this style of bomber has been popular so I had to get my hands on it, especially in this nude color. May I add that it is actually a men’s bomber? As you may or may not already know, I love scoring men’s pieces because they have a more relaxed fit/look. If you love this bomber you can use my code KARLA15 for 15% off your order! Lastly, my new block heel boots. The most perfect, Givenchy inspired, boots I had ever seen are now in my closet. Not only are they block heels, but they’re cylindrical. They’re currently sold out on the EGO site, but I’m sure they will be restocking soon. Block heel boots are the bees knees, I repeat. Until next time!
NECKLACE C/O METAL TABOO (HERE)
And I’m finally back! My final year of college and it’s taken over my life. I’m talking Marketing Research proposal due, and class just began. It’s tough out here, but every now and then there are things that make me unbelievably happy. So, I’m all about confidence, and I’ve mentioned before that it’s a quality every woman should wear. What makes me confident? The color black, biker jackets, and anything unique like this necklace from Metal Taboo! Sinning is usually seen as something terrible, but face it. Everybody sins, and even on the daily, girl. I am me, and I accept all of my flaws and mistakes, which is why I’m so in love with this piece. Confidence starts from the inside, don’t you think?
Metal Taboo has a variety of finishes such as brass, sterling silver, and copper. In the words of the brand itself, “We display and celebrate our arrogance, sexuality, vulgarity, frustrations, and angst. Know thyself”. Check out the rest of the Curse Word options here!
A woman should always exude confidence, and I feel most confident in white lace. White is the opposite of what I usually wear, and the lace makes me feel like I’m in a french movie. The Texas heat is no joke, so you can catch me relaxing in my lace lingerie after a cool bath. You can check out one of my favorite Adore Me lingerie piece here (hint: it’s a one-piece, and its ultra hot). If you haven’t had enough, you can look through pages of confidence boosting lingerie here. What’s your #sexysummerylingerie?

TOP C/O GAMISS (HERE)
LEVIS / THRIFTED
SNEAKERS/ ADIDAS ORIGINALS
PATENT HANDBAG / DIOPHY
Another white and denim combo, yes. Slowly moving away from black clothes, and I’ve even been looking into buying a grey-blue bomber *thinking emoji*. This top is only one of the many off shoulder tops I’ve accumulated lately. If you follow me on instagram, you know that it all started with a black top from H&M. This one in particular is really feminine and I’ve received a lot of compliments on it. Would you believe its only $7 dollars? Betta believe it.
CHOKER C/O LESS LEATHER (HERE)
In my opinion, chokers have a subtle romantic flare to them. They actually say that the most beautiful part of a woman’s body are shoulders, collarbones and neck. My new favorite choker, from Less Leather, has a simple design that contrasts great with just about everything you wear. In this post I focused more on the choker itself, without any distractions. Because I was feeling a bit romantic when I was editing these photos, I added a new filter by VSCO and Taku, which reflects exactly that: dark romance. Listen to what I was listening to while editing these photos below, and follow Less LEathers Instagram @LessLeather!
DENIM MINI c/o GAMISS (here)
BUTTON UP/ FOREVER 21
BUCKLE CHOKER/ EBAY (here)
I love distressed denim, period. Jeans, shorts, and now skirts. This skirt from Gamiss has become my favorite because of the frayed hem. Its a minor detail but it definitely makes a difference. The beauty about denim is that you can wear it a million ways: I would switch out the button up for a black bodysuit and a biker jacket, for example. Speaking of black, I was also drawn to this skirt while browsing the site. It also has a raw hem, but the white stitching is what makes it unique in my opinion. Moving on to my buckle choker, which I bought because I really wanted the AYAI Katya Choker. I found this super ultra cheap alternative on Ebay, yeah I said it.
More from Gamiss coming soon, and it is also white. Major hint alert. Keep up with Gamiss on their Facebook and Pinterest!
