Spring Outfits: Tribal print, Florals, and Pastels!

Today I’d like to share some key pieces for the spring! Starting off, we have tribal prints. I personally love this style, mostly because of how versatile it is. Tribal print has made it’s way through every season, and I have a hunch that it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As winter progresses into spring, here is how you can continue wearing tribal prints:

Image

Fold up your tribal print cardigans and sweaters and add some bright printed skirts and dresses to your wardrobe! These are great items that’ll last their way through summer and fall.

Image

Next item: Florals. I love anything with flowers on it, and I can see this coming spring season exploding in a flower craze. For now, start with simple patterns like this here top Maxine is wearing:

Onto Pastels! Pastels are no doubt going to remain a spring staple for a long time, so no hurt in getting some now! Here is a potential Valentine’s Day outfit:

Image

Can I just say that this turquoise/teal color is my all time favorite color. And mixed with white lace – perfect!

That is all! Comment below which outfit is your favorite 🙂

OOTD: November 13th

OOTD: November 13th

With 70 to 80 degree weather in November, it is difficult to put away the summer clothing. Today was one of those days. Here is my lovely roommate Cindy flawlessly pulling of this apple green (hint hint) collared top, white shorts, and green and white polka dotted nails. These colors make me reminisce of summer – I’m sure I’m not the only one 🙂

OKA Jewelry – Gold Resin Bib Link Flower Statement Necklace Set

OKA Jewelry - Gold Resin Bib Link Flower Statement Necklace Set

Here I am presenting another great gift from OKA Jewelry! My first impression of the website was that it sold jewelry just like any other brand name store. Once I received their jewelry, however, I was shocked by how gorgeous it was! Pictures cannot do it any justice. The necklace and earrings in person are absolutely stunning, and I would recommend this online store to all of my followers, friends, and family.

On a side note, we all know that you take your chances when shopping at Forever 21 because of the quality of material. I think it’s safe to say, however, that OKA Jewelry has very good quality items, similar to how I would rank Francesca’s (which is quite expensive).

So, all I ask is that you check out their website for some great deals!

If you would like to purchase this exact same jewelry set, click here! It’s only $12.95! You can also get it in coral, but I prefer the sea green!

More about me: I recently moved to Southern California, so this necklace fits in perfectly with the year-long summer. As you can probably tell, I was heading to the beach when this picture was taken.

Thanks again to OKA Jewelry! I love wearing your jewelry!

Leopard Dress

Leopard Dress

I have always been skeptical about animal prints, until very recently when I noticed nice ensembles involving leopard print on Pinterest. I’ve been on the lookout, and now I’ve found my match. It’s a lightweight, casual leopard print dress, perfect for throwing over a black bandeau. Not to mention it has pockets! I know it’s a bit more summer appropriate, but I can see it being turned into a fall outfit. For instance, add some black tights, boots, and a jacket, and wallah! The beige and black of the pattern is an easy transition from summer to fall.

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed.

Land of Enchantment/ How I Style Combat Boots #1

I went on a beautiful walk this morning and just had to document my experience. I think people forget that New Mexico is indeed “the land of enchantment.”

Can’t forget the outfit; this is a fashion blog after all!

Image

I got some pretty intense leggings the other day…

Image

And combat boots!

Image

The lighting was perfect.

Back to School Outfit #4

Back to School Outfit #4

This outfit is definitely geared towards comfort, mostly because of the leggings. My inspiration for this look: http://katie-mulchinock.tumblr.com/post/31747369253

The past few outfits have actually all been Pinterest inspired.
Also, am I the only one who has this problem on a daily basis?

Back to School: Fall Outfit

Back to School: Fall Outfit

Here is the second outfit of my back to school collection! To create a smooth transition from summer to fall, I based the outfit off of a cream-colored summer dress I own. Of course, I added my riding boots, but this time with brown leggings to give the look a warmer vibe. On top I am wearing a forest green jacket and a pink infinity scarf to once again create an earthy tone, yet add a little summer color.

Back to School Shoes: Flats & Sandals

Back to School Shoes: Flats & Sandals

It’s that time of year again! Probably the best excuse to buy new clothing and shoes… and supplies of course. Unfortunately, my school doesn’t start until late September, but most students are going back within the the next couple of weeks. So, I am now starting my back to school collection, featuring outfits for school, my college dorm haul, and fall inspiration.

For now I’d thought I’d start off with these new shoes I got from The Shoe Department. Every year I get a new pair of classic black flats. They go perfectly with dark skinny jeans and sweaters, which I plan on styling in the fall. The second pair I got are these metallic sandals that are more appropriate for August and early September when the weather is still warm enough for shorts and skirts. My advice: switch out boring, old flip flops for some decorative sandals this school year! The nail polish I am wearing is Mint Sprint by Sally Hansen.

Warning: this color does not look good on finger nails.

Stay tuned for more back to school hauls!

Vintage Summer Outfits

I have a feeling that vintage-inspired clothing will never quite go out of style (at least for a while). The appearance itself gives off a classy vibe that has just as much power as wearing something of modern formality. It gives off a sense of age and intelligence. Here once again, are my two models, looking lovely as ever.

Happy Monday!

Farmer’s Market Fashion

Every Thursday morning during the summer, my town puts on a Farmer’s Market.

It started off normal, until I met some hooligans along the way…

And so, a photo shoot with Charlie Olsen and Noel Williams ensued.
