Crushing on Embroidery
My latest obsession? Anything embroidered! Lately, I have been in love with almost anything that has embroidery on it. But, if you're not ready to fully jump into this trend and get yourself a pair of flower stitched jeans, then a tee shirt like this is the perfect step. A little bit of embroidery on a white tee shirt is a great way to add a little extra something to your basic white tee shirt. Embroidered details are everywhere: on jeans, jackets, shorts, tee shirts, and even shoes. It adds a little bit of life to some of the more basic articles of clothing in your closet. So go out and fill your closet with lots of embroidered clothes!!!

Vogue-ing in Velvet
It's time for a blast from the past; velvet is coming back in style, and it is starting to appear EVERYWHERE! This trend is super easy to rock because velvet is starting to show up in everything: booties, shirts, jackets, and even dresses. Velvet clothes come in so many different colors and styles there is definitely a way for everyone to rock this trend. I decided to go with an off-the-shoulder dress. Just keep these few tips in mind
- don't pair denim with denim
- try to wear it with w light fabric such as chiffon
- try this edgy 90's look with a sleek hairstyle
- if you just want to dip your toe into this trend try just layering a velvet tee shirt into an outfit
- if you really want the 90's vibe, add a choker

This outfit is definitely getting me excited for warmer weather! The other day, I was asked to model for Hello Honey and it was so much fun! I'm so glad I got this opportunity otherwise I would have never known about this super cute store. Everything at the shoot was so cute and definitely made me excited to get online and start shopping!
This dress has such a boho vibe. The boho style has been in for a couple of years, and I don't see that changing this year; which is great because I'm a little bit in love with anything bohemian. This dress has some of my favorite qualities (not only is it super cute, it's long sleeved and it's army green). You can add some heels to dress it up, or booties to keep it more casual. Add a chunky braid and you're ready to go out!
It was so much fun shooting with all of these girls! Don't forget to go check out Hello Honeys's website because all of the outfits we are wearing are on SALE right now!
Dressing for Winter
Who says you're confined to wearing dark colors just because it's winter? Not I! As much as I love wearing blacks and grays, sometimes it gets old after a while. When I saw this jacket, I instantly fell in love and had to have it. Right now, this color, and other pastels like powdery pinks are super popular. Although pastel colors like this might remind you of summer, you can combine them with neutral colors to make it feel more wintery (if that's even a word haha). The pastel colors also contrast really well with the edgier staples like tomboy jeans, leather jackets, and moto boots. I found the best of both worlds; a pastel leather jacket! I wore it with a white cropped turtleneck, ripped jeans, a pair of booties, and bam! A very trendy outfit to help me get out of my winter blues.
Keeping Things Casual
It's alwasy fun to get dressed up and put together a really cute outfit, but what about those days when you want to stay a bit more casual? Those days where you want to swap the heels for something a bit easier to walk around in?
This outfit is about as simple as it gets; jeans, a tee shirt, and my favorite pair of sneakers. But just because it's simple doesn't mean it has to be boring. Instead of a classic pair of skinny jeans, I swapped those our for a distressed pair of boyfriend jeans. Then, I put on the Adidas tee shirt. It was very loose fitting, and I didn't like the way it looked with the baggy jeans. Simple fix? Tie a knot in the tee shirt! It added a little more shape to it, and turned just an average tee shirt into a crop top (definitely making the outfit fit today's style a little bit better). I put on my favorite pair of sneakers (Adidas Superstars) and to finish the outfit, I pegged my jeans. Pegging my jeans might be the greatest thing my dad has ever taught me. It might seem simple, but I think it really brought my whole outfit together. For my hair, I put it half up and pulled some hair out to fall in my face to give it the messy look. It was super easy to throw it all together, and it's a great way to spice up your every day outfit while still keeping it casual.
This year, for New Years Eve, I decided to throw a party. Now, when I was looking for an ourfit for the night, all I knew was I really wanted to wear white. If I was going to put blacklights out for the party, then what better color is there to wear? So, I started with a simple white, off-the-shoulder top. I decided on black leather jeans to make it a little more efestive, and for the icing on the cake, I added a velvet choker with very sparkly gems on it. What's a New Years outfit if you don't have a little bling?
I am so excited to see what this new year brings. I'm finally going to graduate from high school, move out, start college, and begin a whole new chapter in my life. Thinking about it freaks me out sometimes; it seems like I grew up in the blink of an eye. But, I definitely plan on making the most of the next few months before I have to actualy start adulting haha
