Live and Learn

If you haven’t noticed I have been a bit MIA with my blog lately. So much has changed in my life recently, but for the better. I went through a crazy, hard break up, started living on my own in Los Angeles and went to Europe! All within the last two months. It’s been a whirlwind of experiences these past few weeks and now that my life is slowly calming down I have made a few realizations about everything that has happened. Scroll through to read my few bits of advice and to see my favorite look I wore in Europe!3G9C73171.Don’t feel bad about taking some time for yourself.

While it’s good to care about others, you also need to make sure you are caring about yourself.When I broke up with my boyfriend, I realized I had been focusing on him and what makes him happy and ignoring what I wanted. Learn from me and be selfish every once in a while.3G9C72943G9C73082. Embrace life’s unpredictability.

I have noticed not only within myself but others close to me, that we can often let the unknowns of the future prevent us from enjoying the present. In Europe I traveled every way possible, the metro being the most unfamiliar to me. At first I was scared to use it, thinking I would get off on the wrong exit and get lost in Paris. Quickly I realized the thrill in being lost and exploring a new place. These little accomplishments make us grow and learn as people.3G9C73353G9C73373. Meet new people and make new friends!

This one really has been one of the most important lessons I have learned, seriously! The friends I made in Los Angeles helped me through my break up and I have no idea what I would’ve done without them. In Europe, I meet so many amazing people who really made the whole trip so much more memorable and fun!3G9C73583G9C7342And last but not least…

4. Be a “Power Dresser”

A break up, trying to find a place to live, going to school, working… All of this was so overwhelming for me and I’m sure many of you have been through similar situations. Some days were rough and I literally wanted to just live in my sweatpants. I didn’t let myself though! Every day I dressed up and put effort into my look. This helped me change my mindset, be positive with my situation and project strength in everything I did that day. Power Dressing. It’s a real thing!!3G9C7283

I bought this dress specifically for Europe and wore it in Paris for the Moulin Rouge.I definitely consider this my power dress!

Summer in LA

Summertime. The time of year everyone yearns for and its finally here. I personally enjoy summer and all the fun that comes with it, but the heat not so much. Trying to look cute whilst not dying of heat exhaustion is my biggest struggle during this time of year. That’s why I stick to cute crop tops and short shorts. Get the perfect summer outfit below.

Back at it again with the pastel pink! This dress has the perfect balance of elegance and edginess. The soft pink hue gives off femme vibes, but with the strong structure of the dress it becomes ultracool. Shop the dress below.

Sporty Chic

The other day someone asked me how I would describe my style? Oddly enough this is a super tough question for me to answer. I love trying out new trends, but my I definitely put a personal spin on everything I wear. I told this lovely stranger that my style was super edgy, sporty and yet often feminine. This look totally encompasses every aspect of my style. Get the look below!

Rita Ora X Adidas

So just recently one of my favorite, classic brands ADIDAS (everyone’s fave <3) partnered up with one of my all time fashion idols, Rite Ora. The collab between Adidas and Rita Ora has only gotten better with each different collection they put out. This look is from the most current collab between Rita and Adidas and have to say I am obsessed! The tie between the classic, sporty looks you would expect of Adidas and strong  Japanese influences make for such a unique look. Get all the deets below.

Spring is in the Air

It is now spring in Los Angeles and besides the pink flowers blooming on the trees, basically nothing has changed. The weather is still perfect and I’m definitely not complaining. Springtime isn’t all about the weather though. When it comes to fashion, the flowers that bloom and the soft air seems to inspire everyone with what they wear. This look emulates the feeling of spring by wearing pretty, pink pastels and long, billowy trousers. Get the look below!

All in the Detail

A reoccurring theme I have seen in the latest collections have been a keen sense of detail in the garments. Whether it be intricate beading or my latest fave, clothing with safety pin detailing, designers have been paying attention to the little things. The look I choose was simple and relaxed, but with strong details similar to the details seen in top designers garments, the look becomes more edgy and fun. Get the look with direct product links below!
