My New Year’s Eve OOTN 2019

Helloooooo! I hope everyone’s 2019 is going great so far. Sticking to my blogging resolutions has been hard but when I see myself fall, it’s not difficult to pick back up again instead of completely give up. I wore this fun outfit on New Year’s Eve but didn’t get the quality photos I wanted to share so I re-shot them a few weeks later. I know that, it being mid-February, that NYE outifts are totally irrelevant now BUT, I loved this fit so much I couldn’t NOT share.

These sequin joggers are from Dolls Kill and they are so sick. They change colors depending on what light is shining on them and they reflect little circles everywhere. I paired them with a plain black mesh top with my H&M X Moschino bra underneath for a pop of fun.

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.

The KC Creatives Meetup 2/3/18

I feel as if I have been going to meet-ups left and right and I absolutely love it. It’s so refreshing to work with tons of creative people who all have their own individual mindset. I will keep updating this post as more shots roll in!

The theme of this meet-up hosted by the KC Creatives was Valentine’s Day. Molly Balloons (queen balloon artist of Kansas City) was there to create some fun things too. I decided to stick with the theme and wear the color red by throwing on my favorite red striped flare pants from AFRM. I wear these things so often I think I should buy a second pair for when these completely give out.

I have a short part 2 from this meet up coming soon! Stay tuned!

MILAN, ITALY 12/30/17

Next stop on our trip was Milan, Italy! This was the place I was most excited to go to! I’ve been here before but I was so sick I had to stay at the hotel where I watched Italian fashion TV for like 10 hours. Now I’m feeling great and was so ready to take on the fashion capital of the world!

We flew in from Dublin early in the morning and immediately ate and then headed to the Duomo. I have wanted to see this in person for as long as I can remember and it’s so beautiful that it doesn’t seem real. Unfortunately we didn’t goninside or to the top because of how insane the crowds and lines were and we only have a day here. Needless to say I’ll have to come back.

We walked through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II where a ton of high end luxury designer stores are; Gucci, Prada, Versace, etc. Everything was so gorgeous. I have an obsession with window displays.

Of course we shopped and went to my favorite store, Zara, and some others. This Zara was the best and prettiest Zara I have ever been to in my life- and I’ve been to a lot of them.

Like I said before, it was insanely packed because of the holidays we couldn’t do a lot of the main sightseeing attractions so we literally just walked the city all day. I love this city so much. Everyone is extremely well dressed but all so differently. I could people watch for hours.

DUBLIN, IRELAND 12/28/17-12/29/17

Hello from Europe!… Dublin, Ireland to be exact. I have been counting down the days since what feels like forever but it’s finally here! I’ll be traveling to other cities as well in Italy so definitely stay tuned for posts coming this week!

DAY 1

24 hours of traveling by car, plane, bus, taxi, train, you name it…we finally made it! Those long hours were so worth it because this place is absolutely gorgeous. Even flying in over the countryside was beautiful and I most definitely want to come back someday and explore the whole country.

On our first day in Dublin, we kind of just walked around the city and ate some good food. My cousin actually lives here so we met up with him! We took one of those touristy bus tours of the city which was tacky but also nice since none of us have ever been here before. This city is huge and so beautiful. Later, we met up with my aunt and uncle who also flew in and who will be spending most of the trip with us.

DAY 2

Now that we all finally caught up on sleep, we spent all of our second day doing things until we wore ourselves out. We crammed so much into one day, it was a lot but I’m glad my family is like this- I want to see as much as I can!

After walking around and visiting some cathedrals (Christ Church and St. Patrick’s) we went to the Teeling Whiskey Distillery. It was super cool to see the actual factory and the process and we got a tasting at the end of the tour. Also, we just so happened to be there at the same time as the Teeling founders and we got to talk to them.

Next we went to the Guiness Storehouse/ Brewery which was probably one of the most unique buildings I have been in. This place was huge and very modern. The tour was neat to see and we got a tasting and a free pint of beer at the end but it’s really a one and done type of deal, for me anyways.

To finish off our short time in Dublin we ended with drinks and dinner with our whole group. I absolutely love this city and want to come back and spend more time exploring. I also now want to visit the rest of the country. The people are so friendly and the views are amazing.
