CHEETAH IS THE NEW BLACK

Been a minute since I've posted a new look on here but its been a busy & stressful few months for me. We all go through phases in life where we need to take time to reflect on our next move and what we want to share with the world. Not everyone needs to be let in and we can choose what we put out there. Moving forward I'll be focusing more on the strictly sharing outfits, how I style them, and where you can shop the exact or similar look. If you've been following me through Instagram you'll know i've been working more on building a styling portfolio, my photography, and collaborating with various photographers + teams to create magic through stories and visions. I'm excited to share a few projects I've been a part of recently.

Cheetah & Leopard are in many ways the new black at the moment. This print has been sought after for nearly every season. Not only is is versatile and funky but also meshes with just about anything. You all know I love a good crop top and cutting a t-shirt 5 minutes before leaving my home. I also love the idea of recycling pieces, vintage shopping, and spending very little on clothing. Alright I'm done babbling on to the scrolling. Enjoy!

PUFF PUFF, PASS THE LOVE

Sometimes you need to take a step back from everything in life to appreciate what you have in the moment and to understand that not all your dreams can be accomplished overnight. More importantly, you have to love yourself before anything. I read an article recently written by Alexandra Harra on Huff Post titled "The Art of Self-Love"  (highly recommended for everyone) and it really inspired me to take some time for myself and do more of what makes me happy.

What stood out to me in her piece was when she said "I would come to find out that there was nothing missing within me — nothing wrong with me and nothing that I didn’t deserve. Through honest reflection and a mindful shift, I rediscovered the secret hiding place of my self-love. It was all there where I had left it — perfectly". With the New Year approaching, I made a pact to: do more of what I love, cut out negative influences, release love to myself, and thrive on creativity. 

Now on to the good stuff, the Puffer Coat is probably my most overused piece this season. It's always my go-to when I'm running out of the house. I find that they're super cozy, surprisingly keep you warm, and instantly make any look a bit more edgy. The only issue I have is that I want them all...in my closet...now. Free People kills it with outerwear EVERY YEAR. This cropped slouchy green number from Free People was actually purchased at a discounted price on Revolve (keep your eyes on the radar for those sales). Scroll down for the direct link to my coat along with other current favorites.

Cheers ya'll!

The limit does not exist when it comes to coats. The Puffer trend is one of my top favorites this season - I'm loving the way this pop-of green meshes with the black.

If I could describe myself in one picture, it would be this. Always on-the-go.

CROPPED HOODIE SEASON

I'm happiest when Fall weather finally kicks in. Days like these call for a clash between seasonal pieces. Warm enough to wear a skirt but also breezy enough to throw on a hoodie. There's nothing I love more than leisure wear. I'm absolutely obsessed with this cropped hoodie from Urban Outfitters; it's versatile, can be worn in several different ways, and super cozy. Don't put away those Summer clothes just yet, because with this weather you may just find use for them. More below on where to shop this look!
