The Primaries

No, I'm not talking about an election. But primary colors are a huge trend this year. Bright reds, blues and yellows are all the rage and I wanted to be able to try out this fun look for myself. I actually found this bright red kimono at a local thrift store and I thought it was just perfect for the look I was going for. The weather is finally starting to begin to cool down here so kimonos and shawls are a must now. I definitely recommend you all to go to your local thrift store if you want to try out the primary color trend because there is just so much to choose from.

I apologize for the short read but I hope you enjoy the look!

Still Summer?

According to the calendar, it is officially Fall. But it sure as heck doesn't feel like it here in the Washington D.C. area! It can be so hard to be excited for the new season when it hasn't even really begun yet. I have a few cute Fall outfits for you all but I will unfortunately have to wait until it gets a bit cooler. But, for now I have a few last Summer looks that I would love to share with you guys. I have been loving wearing the color pink because it is just so bright and fun. It is also now a color that will be popular in the Fall and Winter seasons as well. I purchased these bright pink culottes from Zara during their end of summer sale and they are one of my favorite pant styles from them because of how comfy they are. I wanted to make this look very feminine so I decided to pair a cream crochet top as well as these gorgeous floral flats. I thought that these flats were perfect to tie in the look together because of the cream and pink colors within them. As for my accessories, I decided to pair these gorgeous rose gold necklaces from Kendra Scott and I wore this gold cross body bag to keep it a bit more simple since there was so much going on with everything else.

I hope you enjoyed this short little blog post! I will have a few more to come very soon.

Feelin' 22

I am finally able to use this T-Swift lyric for myself LOL. I feel like this past year has just flown by and just life itself has flown by so fast. As i've grown older, my birthday festivities have grown smaller which I feel happens with most people with age. This year, I decided to hang out with a few of my closest friends and just go into DC to shop, walk around, and of course take some blog photos. My best friend Imaan and I decided to try out a new bakery called Ladurée which is known for their teas and delicious macaroons.

I felt that my outfit went perfectly with the cute bakery setting. This year I decided to wear a very girly, yet sophisticated outfit. I find that ASOS has a lot of great pieces for this kind of style and that is where I found the cutest pink jumpsuit. The only thing about this jumpsuit was that is was very long but because of the wraparound tie, I was able to pull up the jumpsuit a bit to fit me better. I have been seeing cape styled blazers just about everywhere for the past 2-3 years but I had never had one of my own. I found a cute yet very affordable one from Boohoo. They always have a promotion going on on their website so NEVER buy anything on there for full price. Since I was wearing pretty solid colors for clothing, I wanted to bring in a bit of a statement which I decided to do with my shoes and purse. I actually purchased these shoes knowing I wanted to wear it with this look but I had the hardest time finding the perfect bag. I decided to just settle for my blush cross-body but then I remembered just not too long ago, I purchased this Ted Baker bag.  It was the perfect fit for this look and I loved the way the outfit turned out! As for accessories, I went with my trusty Kendra Scott pieces and wore my rose gold necklace and bracelet.

The thing is, I feel that this outfit looks a bit more expensive but it wasn't actually a splurge outfit. If you just search online enough for some good deals I guarantee you that you will find tons of things. I used my student discount on ASOS, a 50% coupon on Boohoo, a $5 coupon at DSW and I got this purse on sale. Let me know if you all would like a separate post on just my tips and tricks on how to shop on a budget and I will be more than glad to do so. I hope you love this look!

A Floral Bliss

OMG, I have been gone for way too long guys and I am so sorry about it. I have just started my first semester at a new college and it has been crazy hectic. School and work do have to be my first priorities which unfortunately can cause me to slack in my blogging. However, I am so excited to let you guys now that I have gotten a new camera and lens which will significantly improve my photos which is a big step for me! I want my viewers to be able to enjoy my content as well as offer a more professional platform to you all.

I am oh so excited to be back for a couple of new blog posts as well as to begin transitioning into my Fall wardrobe. It has actually been pretty hot here in the Northern Virginia area for the past few days which hasn't allowed me to bring out my fun Fall pieces much, so I decided to bring out this new floral dress. You all know my love for all things floral and this dress was just perfect. It is modest, yet super stylish and comfortable as well which is always a plus! I decided to go for a classy look with this outfit so I put on these black block heeled sandals which really elongate the legs. As for accessories, I always go for a fun tassel earring whenever I can and these white one's matched perfectly. For my purse, I wanted to tie in the black details in the dress so I went with my trusty Tory Burch purse. This outfit is great for a date night or even a formal event!
