Life Update March 2018: Be Present


How is it already Friday? How are we already halfway through March?! Honestly, it freaks me out a bit how fast these last couples of weeks have gone. Time seems like it’s moving even faster now than it did in college…which I didn’t think was possible. But time flies when you’re having fun, right?

I started a new job in the beginning of the year and finally feel like I’m settled in – such a good feeling. Working a 9 to 5 plus blogging full-time plus other personal commitments plus everything else that comes with adult life, I sometimes get so wrapped up in everything that I don’t take the time to just relax for a hot second. Ya feel me? The hustle is real and it’s going to get even realer (not a word) in the next couple of months/years. I couldn’t be more excited of where life is taking me and it makes me realize even more how important it is to be present amidst the hustle. I mean truly mentally present.  I’ve had this realization recently that presence, in even the smallest moments, can make a difference in your appreciation and satisfaction for life. Deep I know.

You’re going to have ups and downs, but that’s what life brings. The most important thing to remember is to stay present – appreciate the ups, stay motivated – be positive through the downs, and don’t let anything stop you.

I hope you all have a great weekend and try to be just a little bit more present in your day-to-day 🙂

5 Reasons I Love My High-Waisted Jeans

Finding the perfect style of jeans can be described like a love story: it can take forever to find the right one and you might get disappointed, but in the end it’s all worth it. Surprise, surprise I’ve found my beloved pair of high-waisted jeans and here’s why I’m obsessed:

1. They’re comfortable. Because of the high-rise silhouette, high-waisted jeans keep everything looking and feeling polished. They fit so snug in the best way and perfectly mold to the curves of your figure. Especially if you find a good quality pair you love, you won’t turn back.

2. They’re flattering. In my opinion, high-waisted jeans are the most flattering style of jeans you could possibly wear. They make your butt look so good and just make everything look tight (get it right get it tight). Comfortable and flattering? I can’t make this up.

3. They’ll be a staple in your wardrobe. Not only will you fall in love with them immediately, but you’ll want to wear them all the time. And guess what? You absolutely can. High-rise denim can be styled with so many different outfits for day or night. Dress them up, dress them down – the world is yours. Continue Reading…

Get the Look: Romee Strijd | Tuxedo Jumpsuit

Get the Look: Romee Strijd | Tuxedo Jumpsuit

I’m not going to lie. I look to the VS Angels’ Instagrams to stay up-to-date on their style and what they’re wearing. As far as street style goes, the VS Angels kill it every single time. Their model off-duty outfits are undoubtedly chic and on-trend whether they’re going to the gym or running around during NYFW. If you’re looking for celeb style inspo, they know a thing or two about fashion. I do love Romee Strijd’s style because it’s very girly, cool and of-the-moment. She’s always rocking the latest trends but with her own twist and isn’t afraid to take risks. Cue Romee Strijd’s tuxedo jumpsuit…it’s everything.

I mean let’s be real, it’s an absolute must in order to survive walking outside of your apartment. But if you think about it, layering is key for really any time of the year. Even on a breezy summer night, you’re going to want to throw on a denim jacket over your cute frilly romper. Layering is one of fashion’s best known secrets to staying comfortable and/or as a fashion statement. It’s so easy to do too as long as you layer the right pieces. Check out my absolute favorites below!

In with Lavender – How to Wear 2018’s Color

February 28, 2018

Victoria Beckham Spring 2018

Hello friends! Let’s talk about COLOR. You may or may not like to wear a lot of color in your #00td, cue all black outfit all day EVERDAY (how can you go wrong?!). Well, Pantone has named the Color of the Year 2018 lavender…and I’m thrilled. To be honest, I don’t normally go out of my way to make sure I’m wearing an “in” color or trend but this might as well be the exception. I mean, hello, look at this color!

I’m completely on board. It’s gorgeous(!) and isn’t seen nearly as much – which is exactly why I love it. It’s surprising, unexpected and bright and therefore is extremely eye-catching. Lavender is one of those colors that’s universally flattering on anyone and could/will definitely turn some heads. A dress or blouse in this color would be so beautiful…or even in a wool coat…ugh, I’m already obsessed just thinking about it.




If you couldn’t tell from above, this situation above is putting me in such a good mood! Will you be trying lavender in your outfits this year? Let me know!
