Seeing Stars

This year I have been insanely invested in my horoscope and zodiac signs in general (fun fact, I’m a Scorpio)! This outfit is one of my favorites I have put together because it reminds me of astrology! This printed blouse from Nasty Gal is literally covered in stars but I paired an excessive amount of silver accessories and accents to keep the space-y, whimsical aesthetic. This outfit is not complete without the jewelry and other accessories (bobby pins, hardware on skirt, bag); sometimes, it can be a good thing to over-do it with accessories and break away from the trendy “minimalistic” style.

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!

Blue Faux Fur Jacket : Como Collabs Meetup 1

Sometimes it is hard to find the creative people in such a big-small town. Columbia, Missouri is small yes, but full of college students. It is easy to get lost in the crowd and difficult to find your way out.

Two Sundays ago, I met up with a couple other people who all have a similar interest; creating art in some kind of form. Together we collaborated on small photoshoots and after made the group official. The CoMo Collaboratives is “a community of creatives living in Columbia, MO”. Be sure to follow the official Instagram account and if you live in COMO come to a meet up or use the hashtag #comocollabs to be featured.

I ended up loving these outfits especially after seeing these shots. I matched the navy from my velvet striped pants to my faux fur leather jacket from Missguided. I feel like I was giving off a retro vibe with the flares. It was absolutely freezing so I won’t be breaking this outfit again until it warms up here pretty soon!

Photos are split up by Photographer. First is Rachel Leigh then Kassidy Jones and last Lexi Churchill. **There will be a part 2 post from this same meet up tomorrow

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.
