JUST RELAX.

The time has finally come where I have purchased my first pair of sneakers and I was beyond excited when I did so. It was kind of hard deciding what pair of sneakers I wanted, but in the end I chose 'Roshe Runs' because of their sleek look and they are so comfortable! I literally want to wear them with everything...seriously, no one will stop me from doing so.

MISSING IN ACTION.

Whenever school starts, it always seems like I disappear, which I have to admit...I do. I never really noticed how much of my time school takes up; I guess it's because I spend so much time relaxing over the summer and I have an uber amount of time on my hands. I've now embarked on my junior year in college and the work is coming in by the loads. There's so much I'm doing for example, taking all the classes that concern my major which is Apparel Design, starting a thrift store, and working in retail! I don't even know how I'm managing to have a break right now to update, but I'm glad I have one because I've missed keeping you guys updated on what I'm wearing and from where.

These photos were taken about two weeks ago! I am in love with high ponytails...they tend to show off my facial structure.

FRONT PORCH CHILLING.

The hotter it gets, the less clothes I wear. I know some of you ladies can agree with me when I see going bra-less can be the best feeling ever, as long as it's done the right way. Oh yeah, check out the high pony tail I'm sporting. Might become a staple for me!

HINT OF COLOR

I painted these DIY boots a couple of years ago with acrylic paint and they are still a staple piece in my wardrobe! They give color to any outfit to make it stand out!




I'm starting school on Tuesday and I decided to go with a sew in for the upcoming school year. I love having length!

LE KIMONO.

I am excited to announce this collaboration that I have done with Chelsea Vonchaz over at http://vonchaz.storenvy.com . The items on her website are absolutely beautiful and they definitely give off this positive, festival style vibe. I was sent this kimono and crochet shirt to display to you all and I loved pairing it with these shorts and these heels. The mix of blue, green, and orange looked good against my skin tone. Head on over to her site and check out the awesome items she has!

LACE & LEATHER

I always love to find gems in my parent's closet! The gem I stumbled across this time was a leather jacket that my mother didn't even remember that she had and boy was it a beauty! It was a little over sized for me, but over sized things are always wonderful in my opinion. Pairing the jacket with this lace shirt and lime green clutch really brought my outfit to life. Tell me what you think.

Also, I'm excited to share with you guys that I am the cover girl for the August issue of a women's magazine here in my city of North Carolina. I will be on stands in over 100 different locations and this is definitely a stepping stone towards my fashionable future!

A DAY LATE.

I was a little late for dressing for Independence Day, seeing that this outfit literally came the day after. I've never been too big on dressing for holidays and in the end, I loved putting all of this red together. Red is a bold color, but looks so good against the skin.
