Paris, France | 10/26/18 – 10/28/18 – 11/2/18 – 11/5/18

Paris is somewhere I have ALWAYS desired to travel to and I am so lucky to have not only spent my 21st birthday there but to have gone twice within one week! I absolutely fell in love with this city and can see myself going back over and over again even more.

I am not going to write a whole lot in this blog post because it is so photo heavy. Certain photos will be captioned and of course, as always I will mention where the pieces of my outfits are from with shopable links.

I need to go back to Paris to actually take my time in the Louvre. We didn’t have a long time in Paris so we mapped out where a couple important works of art were and booked it directly there. I did get to see the Mona Lisa which was something I can say I did, but I personally think she is hyped up a little too much.


Walking down the Champs-Elysees is something I have seen and heard in movies and doing it myself was magical. Walking past the beautiful designer stores and coffee shops was just a dream. This is the street that made me fall in love with this city.

Seeing the memorial for Princess Diana actually gave me goosebumps. It totally escaped my mind that the terrible incident happened in Paris and we just so happened to stumble across this. It is a beautiful monument dedicated to her and I am so thankful I got to see it.

After going to Catholic school for the majority of my life, I learned a lot, not only about religion but about religious architecture. I remember learning about the construction of the Notre Dame Cathedral and seeing it in real life was crazy to me.

Since it was my 21st birthday, I was 100% determined to pop champagne while watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle. This is a moment I could have only dreamed about. It was so surreal I feel like it didn’t even happen.

I have wanted to go to this beautiful church ever since the thought of a Paris trip came into my head. Unfortunately, I was able to go the first weekend but made it my top priority that I went the second time.  Sainte-Chapelle literally took my breath away. I could stand beneath those stained glass windows for hours.

The view from the top of the Eiffel Tower is great but the view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe is way better in my opinion, mainly because the Eiffel Tower is in view. I also absolutely loved watching the cars go up and down the Champs-Elysees.

XOXO, Green Blazer

Happy Tuesday! I made a goal this year to branch out of my “set” style and try out new things. I tend to dress pretty edgy using mainly neutral colors but I don’t want to stay in that aesthetic because there is only so much one can do within it.

For this look I paired a bright, mint green blazer that I thrifted with a faux leather pleated skirt and white pussybow blouse. My original idea was not to be preppy and gossip girl-esque but the outcome looks kind of like I stepped straight off the show. Not only do I get those vibes, but I also felt like I could be strutting down a street in Paris.

Remember that you don’t have to stick to one style to define yourself. It is so much more fun to try out other aesthetics and to add your own little twist.

Tweed and Leather : Como Collabs Meetup 2

This was such a fun and easy look to put together. I love the chic, European feel of the tweed and fur jacket mixed with the edgy rocker leggings and heeled booties; it’s almost Parisian inspired. I think it makes for something different and unique. Of course I am wearing my favorite black newsboy hat to tie everything together.

These shots are from the second Columbia Collaboratives meet up shot by Anna Tripolitis. Be sure to follow Anna on Instagram and like on Facebook. I also have part two from the meet up coming soon. I shot two outfits and wanted to keep them separated.

New Orleans 7/22/17 – 7/24/17

My family is super into road trips and we take a long one pretty much every Summer. I am pretty active on Instagram during these vacations but have never blogged (or vlogged) about them so this is a first! We’re stopping in a few different cities this week and each city will have its own blog post including my outfits and some other photos!

ALSO – in one of my recent blog posts, I mentioned how I wanted to better one of my social media channels and I am happy to say that I am officially bringing back my Youtube channel starting with a vlog from this trip once it’s all over! I have never vlogged before so it may be a little rough but I am going to try to get used to it and do it more regularly, showing a more accurate representation of my life. I also plan on creating some fashion videos and films as well so stay tuned. I am so excited to see everything come together!
