Playing In the Sun

The other day, my oldest friend from high school and I decided to get together to have a cute little photoshoot. We love photography and I wanted to test my new camera that I got over a year ago and haven’t really used it. So we decided to go to a local park that had a farm and a few cute animals and decided to take rustic pictures.

I suggest if you are trying to catch up with old high school friends, try something that you both enjoy and make a day out of it. No matter how hot it may be outside, you can always end up grabbing some ice cream later to cool down.

Having been home for about 2 months now from South Carolina, I have become a little southern girl with my cowboy boots. I was not expecting to come home with a love for preppy clothes, cowboy boots, and southern hospitality but, apparently, I do. Still not a big fan of Lilly Pulitzer, oops!

Happy Fourth Of July! Stay safe, and enjoy yourself and I will see y’all soon!

Trend Alert: Off the Shoulder

One of my favorite trends right now is the off the shoulder look. I find this look to be sophisticated yet edgy at the same time. Shoulders have been considered scandalous, mostly at my school, for the longest time and it is time to show some skin.

Burnt orange is a big color for the summer and this outfit reminds me of something that I would wear if I was visiting a beach in another country. I like adding a few pieces of jewelry so the focus is not taken away from the dress. I love the hat how it adds a bit of a bohemian touch to it so I decided to add a bag and shoes to match it.

This is a different type of style, known as the ‘cold shoulder’. I love the top of the dress it is quite different with unique colors. I like to match shoes with the bags. I imagine this dress being worn on the islands of Greece just enjoying the view. With a high ponytail, the hoop earrings will look amazing with the outfit.

 This look is a bit edgy with the ripped shorts and the black shoes. This is something that I might possibly wear to a music festival or just a night out to town. I love the top with the lacey details as it contrasts with the rest of the outfit to give it a soft touch.

 This outfit is also different as the off the shoulder trend is on a romper. I love the bright colors that are perfect for spring and summer, especially the blue is huge for the season. I love blue and to be able to add color to this outfit, it creates the perfect touch. Since the shoes have gold metal, I decided to add a few pieces of accessories that match the metals. The beach hat also adds a fun touch to it.

This a casual outfit where the floral top juxtaposes distressed boyfriend jeans. I added espadrilles because they are easy and fun to wear. Espadrilles are the perfect summer shoes because they do not have to horrible to wear in such hot conditions.
I absolutely love this trend and you will be able to find similar items at Urban Outfitters, Zara, Forever 21 and many more!

Georgetown | OOTD

Today I went down to Georgetown to try to find some prom dresses, with one idea but no luck. I ‘vlogged’, like a very failed attempt of vlogging and I work one of my new favorite outfits. I went to show my mom the university and we walked by beautiful homes so I posed in front of one.2016-01-15 02.19.322016-01-15 02.19.37

Now I am looking at the pictures and my sweater is a little oversized.

Don’t worry guys, I am still here. And there is something that I have been meaning to talk about and it is about self-esteem. For about 17 years or so of my life, I never felt comfortable about the way I looked, the way I acted or anything about myself.  I always cared what people thought about me and that really had hurt me as a person and I have lived in a terrible state because of it.

Within the past year, I learned that people may have opinions, but I learned that it is how I react to them. Because of their opinions, I blamed pretty much horrible thing in my life and theirs on me. But I discovered that was not true.

I was in a relationship in the beginning, which ended not even after 3 weeks, which made me realize that I put myself in that situation because I did not love myself enough. That the only reason I became friends with mean and disloyal people is because I did not like myself at all and that was the reason that it put me in such a terrible state for so long, it is because I thought I deserved it.

I learned that if I want a happy life, that I have to create a positive outlook towards it and not a depressing one I had for so long. There will be days that I will get depressed about myself with my nose being too big and not looking like other girls and looking like a child with my chubby cheeks but I have to remind myself that God created me because I am different and beautiful in my own way. Happiness is about appreciating the things that you cannot change and accepting them. Find the beauty in little things because they are there for a reason.

My depressed state was created by my thoughts and could only be changed by them. Happiness is a weird and scared feeling for me but I will bear with it because it is better than what I had felt.

Let go of that boy who is going to flirt with other girls and let go of those friends who cannot see how amazing you are. Love yourself because you cannot be anyone else.

Winter Nights | OOTD

Hey everyone! How has life been treating you? I recently finished midterms and am so pleased on the grades I got in French and APUSH (it was a 77 but still good enough). I really want to get back into blogposts and keeping up on outfits so here is one from last Christmas.

My family and I went to Downtown Annapolis to see some of the lights they had to offer and why not do it on Christmas when everyone is inside and celebrating? It was cold but it was nice to be able to walk on the streets without cars running us over. I will hopefully include a vlog about my Christmas.

Clean | OOTD

Hey everyone! Happy late Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday! As much as I would like to go shopping for those awesome deals, I am stuck at home with my puppy. I have had these pictures ready to be shown to the world! I absolutely love this dress for the past year I have had this. I saw my mother wear this sweater with a plaid skirt and I thought it would be cute to pair with the dress!
