obsessed right now.

February is finally here, the best month of all time! Okay, maybe I’m bias since it is my birthday month, but who doesn’t love their birthday month? I’m kicking of this month with a post about some of the things I’ve been (slightly) obsessing over recently.

  1. Vintage Band Tees: Like most college girls who run around in oversized t-shirts, I have a huge love for them. But I’ve recently been obsessing over vintage band shirts, oversized of course!  I think they give off such cool grunge style that I have always loved.
  2. Tommy Hilfiger: Maybe its because I’m obsessed with Gigi Hadid, but lately, I’ve been loving  all things Tommy Hilfiger. Sweatshirts, t-shirt, hats, I want them all!
  3. Shoes: For quite some time now, I’ve being craving a better shoe game. Of course that includes the hope of one day owning my own pair of Yeezys but hey a girl can dream right? Along with envying everyone who owns Yeezys, I’ve been loving the idea of a simplistic outfit with a great pair of patterned, heeled booties. They can pull an outfit together so perfectly and make it look edgy yet sophisticated.
  4. Sketching: This semester,  I am enrolled in a course called Fashion Illustration. I’ve always loved illustration, but until recently, I’ve never paid much attention to how cool it actually is and how much effort is put into the smallest details. To say my Pinterest board is covered in  illustrations now is an understatement!
  5. Gucci: Oh my, have I been obsessing over all things Gucci lately. Maybe I haven’t been paying much attention but to me Gucci has made a comeback to the industry. People, as well as myself,  have been obsessing over all things Gucci; fur slippers, vintage looking t-shirts, the new purse collections. I want it all! Sadly Gucci slippers cost a ridiculous amount of money so again, a girl can dream…

What are some of your obsessions this month?

Best of Twenty Sixteen // New Beginnings

Twenty-sixteen was a great year, despite what some may think or believe.  You see, I believe it’s all about perspective, if you look back at the year and only think of the negative things that occurred, naturally, you’re going to conclude it wasn’t a great year. Instead of looking at the bad that happened, and there was definitely some bad, I’m looking back at all the great times I had 2016. A year of memories with friends and family that can last a lifetime (cliche, I know).

With twenty-seventeen finally here, I am making my New Year resolutions, while some of them are the typical cliche resolutions: be healthier, work out more. I am vowing to not focus on so much negative but to always look at the positive in a situation. I plan to capture the great moments and not dwell on the negative. Of course there will be negative moments but no one has time to be bummed out for too long, it only brings you down so why let yourself stay bummed when you can turn a sad moment into a happy one. So here is to the kicking butt in the new year, let’s make it a good one!

 

A few memories of my favorite  from 2016.

What to Wear: Library Lifestyle

Going to the library during your years in college are inevitable. It will happen no matter how long you push it off for, so why try to avoid it?  For many students, it’s a spot for late-night hangs with friends while trying to get ahead in their classes. For others, it’s a place to get some peace and quite while you cram multiple weeks of information into your brain the night before a big test. Whatever the case may be, the library always has a welcome mat to any and all students.

Before heading to the library, most people decide to throw on the first thing they see in their closet and head out the door, not caring how they look while studying. However, some see it as another opportunity to show off their style. Being comfortable while studying is a major key to the library lifestyle. Dressing stylish yet comfortable can be a major confidence booster for some while studying. It gets you in the right mindset of believing you can and will be successful!

What’s your go-to comfy look for library?

Let’s Talk Neutrals

What are neutral colors? When asked, many people will give a default answer of black or white, but there are so many different colors (and even patterns) that make for great neutral shades. Gradients of grey and brown and the occasional tones of blue also fall under the neutral category, and so do some classic patterns!

How do you make a “neutral outfit” not so boring?   Add some accessories! Having an entirely neutral outfit has the potential to look boring. Adding fun accessories or shoes with a pop of color can help pull your neutral look together and creates a place to draw the eye. Pictured below you will find a neutral outfit that has been paired with a three-layered maroon necklace and multi-colored shoes. Your pop of color doesn’t have to be a piece of jewelry or an accessory as my friend Mariah demonstrates. Mariah finished off her black and white look with some cranberry lipstick for some brightness and interest.

What are some of  your favorite go-to neutral colors and styles?
