I have to say it’s super weird to think about the fact that this is my last blog post of 2014…seems like just last week I was complaining about the raging summer heat! Although the majority of us tend to become quite wistful in reminiscing on great moments from the year, I could not be more excited for a new year and all of the new experiences that it will bring. I’m so looking forward to seeing the exciting projects that my friends and myself will take part in this year and all that we’re able to accomplish. From my high school graduation, to heading off to college in a new city, 2015 will bring a lot of new beginnings for me…and I’m ready for them all. I’m trying not to go all pseudo-philosophical on you guys, but I just want to encourage everyone who’s reading this to continue on your journey working towards whatever your goal is…everything that is meant to be will come into fruition when it’s the right time!

I have been waiting for the time of year when I can finally saunter around town in my favorite jacket again. I think of all the different types of outerwear, a classic trench coat has to be one of my absolute favorites. As an individual, I've always adored vibrant colors and loud prints; anything loud is right up my alley. Consequently, while I'm growing up and cultivating my continuously changing style, I enjoy incorporating much more subtle and relaxed colors into my daily wardrobe.
So it probably wasn't the best idea to run across a street with incoming traffic...at least it made for a great picture!
These are also my favorite shoes ever...the "granny" tapestry print is just on the verge of being too dated for my preference, but the spikes add a fun, modern element to them! I'd wear them every day if I could.
We've been blessed with some pretty great weather these past couple weeks here in D town! Although I do love the summer heat, I have to admit that I definitely welcomed the drop in temperature and warm breezes with open arms. I decided to take advantage of a beautiful afternoon with some photos in one of my favorite parks in downtown Dallas, Main Street Garden Park. I wanted to focus on this adorable sweatshirt that I purchased and completely forgot I even owned (perks of being a shopaholic). Usually, the whole bling-ed out look isn't part of my style, but I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! To top it off, I scored it for ten bucks at Buffalo Exchange...needless to say, I'm quite proud of my find. Hope you all enjoy this look and the photos! Have a beautiful week, my friends -- blessings!
Today officially marks my last first day of high school and I could not be more excited! I'm so ready for this senior year and all the fun experiences I know will come with it. When planning my "back-to-school" outfit, my main focus was on being as comfy and free as possible (drastic comparison to freshman year when I was begging my mom to let me wear heels on the first day, thank God she didn't let me)! Consequently, the look that I settled on was sporty, light, and perfectly comfortable enough for me to run around all day in on the busy first day! Hope you guys enjoy; have a blessed week! xoxo
Hello again friends!!! So I thought it would be fun to show my look from today worn with both sneakers and heels; it's great how different an ensemble can come across when you switch up the shoes. Hope you guys like it!
Whoop...looks like someone's got purple hair! Well, anyone who knows me will tell you that it's quite hard for me to stick with one hairstyle for long. I'm proud to say that I can now check "Lavender Locks" off my never-ending hair bucket list. I thought I'd try something fun for the summer and dying my hair was definitely a big step for me, but so far I love it! The stylist I have to thank for my new do' is my rad sister...check her out below!

Since I was feeling a bit "clueless" this morning when picking out something to wear, I thought, "What better way to make something out of this than to pay homage to one of my all-time favorite movies?" Needless to say, Clueless was my source of inspiration for today's attire; I mean, who wouldn't love channeling their inner Cher and Dionne!
P.S. my other source of inspiration?...Iggy Azalea's fab video for her new song "Fancy," featuring Charlie XCX... Check it out here:
This weekend I had the amazing honor of attending the debut trunk show of a blossoming lifestyle brand, [ insert ], also called 'inside the brackets.' The three words that come to mind when thinking of this brand: quality, exclusivity, individuality.
The designer, Elzie, put so much thought behind each and every piece that was put out; this fact is proved by his 'one-garment a month' plan. Only one garment will be released each month to ensure the previously stated individuality of each garment. In speaking to Elzie, you see the deep passion and confidence that he has in his brand. He stated he feels that, "people often get cheated out of quality, even from brands who can afford to produce it." Elzie makes it clear to the world that he's bringing true craftsmanship and art into the world of fashion.
