I know that sweats aren’t necessarily meant to be worn outside, let alone with heels, but today I broke the rules. I won’t lie, I felt pretty liberated as this style is so out of my comfort zone. I was lucky enough to snag these amazing heels from Shoedazzle which shockingly worked perfectly with this look.
Today’s outfit was inspired by the seventies with a little rock n’ roll. I love to mix up bohemian prints with leather and edgy details which is why the booties I’m wearing worked perfectly for this look. I’ve never really found a pair of black booties that I had to have, but these Shoedazzle ones just shouted at me. This blazer’s print truly inspires me so much, it has a nice bohemian feel but also a unique ethnic feel which is why I love it so much.
I tried something a little different today: palazzo pants. Normally I always feel like a clown when I wear them, but something about the print of these intrigued me. I figured, why not. I paired the pants with a turtleneck crop top because I feel it added a little bit of a vintage feel.
Summer is almost over so I’ve found myself leaning toward fall fabrics, like leather. This leather skirt has been in my closet waiting for me to wear it again. The only reason I don’t wear it too often is because the boyfriend hates it. I’m so in love with the crop top/pencil skirt trend, I just had to do it for today’s post!

A quick outfit post today! Today was all about experimenting with textures and patterns. The quilted leather shorts, the cotton crop top and the bold white/black blazer
I’m still on the hunt for the perfect LWD (Little White Dress) but I’m completely in love with ivory. Until I can lay out and get some color too, Ivory gives my complexion a little color, so I’m not too sad I haven’t come across my LWD yet. I love the simplicity of the tunic and it’s one of the most comfortable items I own. It’s light and easy and can be worn with a basic ballet flat, or a fun lace up bootie like the one’s in today’s post.
Oh, and want to hear something amazing? I’M DONE WITH SCHOOL TODAY! Well…I have to go kick my psychopharmacology final at 3 pm first, but then…a whole month off- from school. I started work this month at the counseling center and I’m looking forward to finishing my training and seeing some clients. Once I start, the mini dresses and crop tops might be scarce on the blog! But don’t you worry, I’ll still add some edge to my more polished looks. In the meantime, I’m going to post as much as I can.
I’m sure y’all have noticed that pink has been one of my go-to colors this season. Today’s post is no exception. When I first received this dress, I fell out of my chair. Three reasons why: 1. It’s pink! (duh), 2. I love the unique sweetheart top and off shoulder details, 3. It fit like a fairy tale.
This particular dress and color really had me feeling like a real-life Barbie. So, I just owned it. Nothing wrong with a little pretend, right?
My fellow blogger babe, Sazan Barzani and I were in the middle of creating a Cinderella moment for me when we were told we weren’t allowed to take pictures. Le sigh. But alas, here are our pics!
This weekend I went to my boyfriend’s step dad’s daughter’s wedding and it was such a blast! Funny thing is, I had nothing to wear until the morning OF the wedding. Leave it to men to tell you ONE week in advance (I started work last week and have finals). Regardless, I had the best time dancing, drinking and eating. My favorite part of the wedding was seeing my boyfriend all dressed up!
With black and white being a major trend this spring/summer, I felt this dress was ideal. It was still classic with a nice edgy twist. Of course, to add more of my personality, I had to wear these lace up heels to complete the look.
I just want to dedicate this post to my fellow blogger babe Chanelle of the Penelope Times. She dressed me for today’s post and to be honest, as out of the box as this look is for me, I have never had more fun or felt more confident. I don’t exactly know why, but something about the stripes, the crop top and the big white frames that just made me feel amazing. I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed wearing it!
In honor of Chanelle’s 90′s vibe, I titled this post after her. Pretty fun, right?
Being able to branch out of my comfort zone and just have fun is something I really enjoy doing. Being a full-time graduate student and now MFT Trainee, my time is so limited and playing dress up and goofing off in front of the camera allows me to have a few moments to myself.

There is nothing more summery than layering on the neon! I’m such a sucker for candy colored hues and today’s post is all about it. So prepare to smack your lips, or should I say, excite your eyes with this juicy and sweet look. I love pink and yellow together, the two colors just make me smile.
