See you soon, Kansas City

Hi!!!

I have officially left for my big adventure to Florence, Italy for school! (this post was written prior to leaving but I scheduled it so it would post while I was in the air) My last blog post in Kansas City for a few months does mean a lot to me. I love this city with all of my heart and have spent my entire life here. Every single person I have met here has been so kind and so supportive. This city is growing everyday and has so so much to offer. I am thankful to be apart of this community and I most definitely will miss it but I am ready for this new adventure.

This is one of my favorite outfits ever. It’s not one of my most “out-there” outfits but one that does mean a lot to me. I bought this graphic tee that says “creative director” almost 2 years ago from Zara and it didn’t feel right to wear as I didn’t feel I was working in that field yet. 2018 has been so good to me and I have had some insane opportunities that I feel like now the time is right. I love the Kansas City skyline in the background with me in the focus. I kind of took that as this city is always on my mind but I need to focus on me and my dreams now.

Thank you for everything, Kansas City. I’ll see you soon.

xx Bella

Metallic Going Out Dress

Good Morning!

This morning, I am bringing you an evening/going-out look to get you through this Monday! A few weeks ago, Forever 21 was having a major sale and I got this metallic teal dress for $6!!! I am always a bit skeptical with shopping online at F21 because their sizing is iffy with my body type. However, it was a perfect fit! I paired it with a sheer black short-sleeve tee from AFRM underneath to edge it up a little bit and some lookalike Louis Vuitton sneaks from IKRush.

Sneakers have been a favorite of mine lately because, not only are they super in style but they make you stand out in a sea of high heels and booties.

I shot these pics with the lovely Abby Liudahl and while we were shooting, we ran out of natural sunlight and had to switch over to using flash. Both of us rarely use flash photography but these turned out so different from both of our regular blog posts, to switch things up a bit.

Racing Stripes and Checker Print

Hello Everyone!

I feel like I haven’t made a blog post in a while but in all honesty I have been so crazy busy preparing to leave for Italy next week! Making sure I spend time with my friends and family before I leave has been a huge priority of mine and it’s always good to take some time for yourself. However, I am here with a few more blog posts to get out before I leave in a short few days!

Lately, I have literally been OBSESSED with everything checker printed. I see this pattern absolutely everywhere and hopped on board real fast. For this look, I was heavily inspired by race cars and races. This jumpsuit is from Nasty Gal and I feel like it looks so complete with the denim check jacket from the Wild Fable line at Target right now. I paired it with my favorite Dad sneakers (my babies, my Fila Disruptor II’s). This outfit is so fun and such a good, go-to.

Shoutout to Abby Liudahl, my photographer and blogger babe, for taking these amazing shots!

Pink Going Out Dress

Hello hello!

I shot this look almost two months ago and these photos have just been sitting in my drafts and I totally forgot about them!

I wore this pink jacquard dress once to a formal and felt the need to style it for more of a casual, going out look. Pairing almost any “one time” event dress with a leather jacket and boots or booties makes for a whole new outfit! I added a hat to give it a touch of personal style and my everyday rings and accessories give it the perfect edge.

Do I look like I’m about to take some kids to the amusement park? Absolutely.

Total 90s vibes is what I was going for with this outfit. I paired this satin top (I think it’s lingerie but I’m not sure, it was $4 on clearance at Target and I couldn’t pass it up) with a Nasty Gal fanny pack and my FAVORITE Fila Disruptor II chunky dad sneakers.

Plaid Purple Midi Skirt

I purchased this skirt from a fellow student at school and am absolutely in love with it. It’s a wool blend so a bit too hot for summer but I wanted to make a summery outfit with it before I transition it into fall and winter. I pulled out the white tones from the plaid and paired it with all white counterparts. The white crop top and boots make it perfect for summer and give it a 60s vibe. Paired with a white Sandro jacket, this has become one of my favorite outfits yet.

I am really looking forward to wearing this statement skirt this fall and winter with all black pieces and tights.

I shot these photos with designer and fashion & lifestyle blogger, and friend, Audrey Lockwood. Check out her site here.

Feminine Rocker Tee

Happy Weekend! This type of outfit is a go to for me, especially this summer (it’s been grossly hot). I love pairing a feminine skirt with a graphic, or rocker tee to make the perfect outfit to go from day to night. I wear graphic tees like it’s my religion and I love pairing them with unexpected pieces. Also lately, red has been a favorite color pop of mine. I feel like it can make you stand out in the best way possible.

I got to shoot this look with fellow fashion and lifestyle blogger, Abby Liudahl. She is such a sweetheart and so talented, I can’t wait to collaborate with her again soon!
