OOTD: Feeling Lucky In Green

This top caught my eye (and heart) upon first glance. I've become a boutique shopper in recent times because I like finding unique pieces that I know everyone will not have. Vertical stripes have always been a favorite of mine, and I found the loose top to be charming with the vertical stripes, as loose tops dont help elongate your frame, while vertical stripes do. Hmm, juxtaposition. Enjoy!

Loose top, ripped jeans, ahh..the life.

Kimono sleeves add a kick to the shape of the top, making it more girly

The side view of the top looks sleek, while if you view it from the front, it looks loose and easy flowing

Love the peek a boo back! Nobody would know that this top is so special from the back at first glance!

 I threw on a braided dark brown belt just to add a bit more casual-ness (is that a word?) to the outfit

Pair the top with white jeans or dark jeans for a nighttime look- and if you feel daring, then skip the tank! 

Mixing patterns is huge this season- so I embraced that!

I'm still loving mixing black and brown, hence the watch and belt combo

OOTD: Part Boho, Part Tribal

I have owned this dress for over 3 years. It was a cheap buy at Forever 21, and I love it! I hope you guys like the look I put together!

I turned a simple tube dress into something a bit more special by adding a thick patterned leather belt

This dress is so thin, its a great item for the summer!

I didn't want the belt and necklace to compete for attention, so I put the necklace inside my top so that all you can see is the top part around my neck

I am wearing all different colors in the jewelry, but it goes so well! 

Nude pumps are always the perfect shoe!

To dress it down, you can always throw on some flip flops instead!

Kourtney Kardashian Inspired Makeup Look

Hey guys,
here are the pictures I took inspiration from while looking for Kourtney Kardashian's makeup looks. 

Love the gold inner tear duct accent, and the fanned out lashes

This picture shows off the extreme highlighting in the center of the face

I like how in this picture you can see that her crease isnt extended, she just followed her natural eye shape

This picture shows off the blush she is wearing. She always goes for brighter blush looks.

OOTD: Statement Necklaces

This entire look was inspired by the necklace. I had had my eye on that necklace for a few months now, but found it too expensive to splurge on. However, when I was in NYC, I found it on sale (not a HUGE difference in price, but enough to console me) so I went ahead and bought it! 

I love dressing casually- especially for the summer, so loose tops are what I tend to go for

Notice how I mixed black and brown- ever so slightly, again. Belt and watch

This necklace had my heart from the second I saw it- back in March. For someone with a long, skinny neck like me, a tiered necklace is the perfect accessory.

I never go for warm colors, but this time I felt like the off white shirt with orange flowers went well with the orange necklace. You can always pair the necklace with a blue top instead- complimentary colors.

I still love jeggings even in the summer. You can never go wrong with them!

For anyone who watches my videos, you know that my feet don't sit well in normal flats, so thats why I picked this particular pair. Notice how the sides are attached to the base to hold your feet in. If you have the same problem as me, go for something with a similar style! 

The thin straps in the front make these sandals look extra delicate- perfect for the summer!
