I missed expressing myself so much. I get mental blocks sometimes but it’s funny how the outcomes of my own life give me the creativity I felt I was lacking. I’m a very emotional individual, but my own emotions helped me create this project alongside a dear friend of mine (@organic.honey_). It really blew my mind that she listened to me, understood the mood and concept I wanted, and truly put it together in front of my eyes. In order to understand this project, I recommend you listen to the song that inspired it in the first place. You cannot understand my emotions or train of thought, but this song conveys them perfectly. EVERGLADE is my interpretation of the repercussions of love. I know that to most people this seemed like a well put together outfit shoot, but “point-and-shoot” content has become progressively boring. Also big thanks to (@shhbbyisokay) for jumping in and taking additional shots.

Hoping to continue to create better content for my platforms! Happy Friday

For the first time in my life, I’ve worn a patterned top. Not any pattern. STARS. I once saw the owner of SaboSkirt, Thessy, wear a polka-dot top and I fell in love. Did I have the courage to wear something similar at that time…of course not. But the time has come, and IT’S LIT (jk, but for real it is). This Forever 21 top has subtle lace up detailing that only adds to the stars. I styled this outfit with a 70’s vibe in mind, hence the yellow tinted sunglasses. For being totally out of my comfort zone, I definitely felt most confident while shooting this outfit. A huge hug for the Forever 21 team, for allowing this collab to happen! More looks to come.

Have you been listening to my likes on Soundcloud? I update it daily, and I’ve been listening to Che Ecru’s Benefits on r e p e a t. Lastly, want to know where I get outfit inspo from? Check out my Tumblr, and my Pinterest! Hopefully you’ll find something that inspires you too. XOXO

WHAT I WORE: BABY TEE AND LACE UP SHORTS

A couple of weeks back I had told one of my besties that I wanted lace up shorts, but I never found a pair that fit well. So of course AKIRA came into the picture with this pair that I had to have. I like that they can be paired with alot of simple tops, like a band tee or a baby tee. Not only that, but if you want to dress it up, you can wear it Kendall Jenner at Coachella style with a lace bra top. I’m petite, but my booty needs room, so I was so glad that the sizing was perfect. I went with a size small after contemplating between a small and medium. Shop the shorts here, or look through new arrivals here! Next I want to talk about the baby tee, which is literally…a baby tee.

So, how can you possibly get away with wearing a kids tee? Very simple.

  1. I picked this one up for $2 dollars at Forever 21 in the kids section, and you can too.
  2. Because kids have their own sizing: 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, and 11/12, it would be best to just try them on. (because I am small ontop, a 5/6 fit me perfectly.)
  3. There’s no rules. If you want to wear a kids tee, wear a kids tee. Its about how you rock it.

The true definition of a baby tee, would be Rumi Neely’s version, which you’ve undoubtedly seen all over her Instagram. This kids tee is a bit longer than the AYAI baby tees, but in reality, you don’t have to spend $79 on it. Let me tell you how. Quick DIY ladies: Buy the kids tee at forever 21, and in order to achieve the AYAI baby tee raw hem JUST CUT IT. I actually just got the idea as I was typing this, so I’ll be doing it myself soon.

WHAT I WORE: LACED UP

Slightly late to the lace-up bodysuit party, but better late than never right? The plunging lace-up detail is so damn cool and edgy. The material is ribbed, and for your reference I’m wearing an xsmall because #teamlittleboobs. They just stocked up on amazing bodysuits on Necessary Clothing, and I would totally die for these: need, and need.

For April playlist is quickly approaching, just saying.

WHAT I WORE: FLUFF AND DENIM

Brought out the destroyed boyfriend jeans for the second time, ever. I wanted to give this look a bit of an edge, since the cardigan (which was 10 bucks during Black Friday), seemed so girly to me. As you all know, I do not usually gravitate towards colors or even the color white, but I really liked how this outfit came together. Onto another new handbag, from the wonderful team at Diophy! It is so spacious, and I actually do not own any other handbag like it. It is larger than most of my handbags, but the change in size and even details is exciting to me. Diophy handbags are of exceptional quality, and they’re so affordable. You guys know I love good deals. Shop my handbag here!

6 or 6 1/2? That is the question. I always have such a hard time deciding what size is best, because all brands have their own sizing. I gambled, and went for a 6 1/2 in these beauties, which I’ve had my eye on since I saw Steve Madden’s Presidnt. Theyre identical, but broke college student probs. If you’re wondering about the fit, I would definitely recommend you to go a half size smaller. Although the 6 1/2 fit me almost perfectly, I like my heels to fit tightly. Also, I busted out my moto skirt and paired it with an oversized tee (no bra needed). Since we are heading towards colder days, I recently stocked up on outerwear and minimalist sweaters. Can’t. Wait.
