This outfit was so much fun to shoot and I absolutely love the outcome. I paired this thrifted button up blouse with my favorite cobalt blue plaid pants from Free People to keep the look light and then added black accessories, a dog shaped purse, chunky Fila sneakers, and a tube top, to make it more of a grungy feel.
I was inspired by 90s fashion for this outfit! I layered a sparkly top over a mesh shirt with a chunky necklace to keep that Paris Hilton vibe alive and added the most amazing lavender snakeskin flares to make it fashionable. To top off the look, I threw on my favorite pair of chunky white sneakers that I wear like everyday.
Recently, there have been a lot of fun trends out there and one of my favorite, and also most easy to accomplish, is wearing a long sleeve shirt under a short sleeve one. This is how I dressed when I was in middle school and I always looked back and cringed but, I think if styled in the right way, it’s a fun way to dress up a boring tee.

Long time, no post…. I was doing so well with posting regularly and keeping up to date but then life just kind of happened. If I’m being totally honest it is 10:00 P.M. right now and I’m writing and uploading all of my delayed blog posts to be scheduled accordingly so I can catch up. That was one of my 2019 resolutions and even though I got behind, I’d rather catch up than give up.
In these photos I am wearing this beautiful wrap mini dress that I bought at Zara while I was in Italy. The dress alone is pretty loud so I just paired it with some boots and called it good!

Rome is by far my favorite city in Italy. I’m thankful to say that this was my 4th time visiting and I’m always ready to go back again for a 5th.
If you are ever in Rome, you HAVE TO GO to Trattoria Luzzi for lunch. This place is so good and SO inexpensive. It is just a few blocks from the Colosseum and halfway to the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterno.
Unfortunately, we did not get to go inside the Vatican Museum to see the Sistine Chapel because it is closed on Sundays… important to know if you’re there on a Sunday :/. However, just standing in front of the church is incredible and being in this area feels like you are in a totally different place.
Bergamo, Italy is a town in the Northern part of Italy closer to Austria and Switzerland. I had no idea what to expect when going here but it was actually really cool. My mom wanted to go here because her family was from there and loved to visit.
To get to the historical part of Bergamo, you have to get on a trolly type ski lift thingy to get to the top of the hill. Walking is also an option, but apparently it is a hike and we only had a day here.
The Bergamo Cathedral is one of the prettiest churches I have ever been to! Is is small but extremely detailed. It is free to go in which is a plus. When in Bergamo, this is a must see.
Arezzo, Italy is a small town just an hour train ride south of Florence. I would have never thought to go to this town if it weren’t for my mom mentioning it. We covered this town in just a few hours because it was so small; a great Tuscan day trip.
We were lucky to have visited on the day that they were having their international festival! There were vendors with stands selling things from tons and tons of countries. The line of tables and tents was probably almost a mile long.
There is also a lot of amazing shopping in Arezzo. I purchased a beautiful pair of western leather boots from Sandro Ferrone.
For my fashion photography class at school, we were required to shoot a model in at least 3 outfits with an outcome of 5 photos. I am all about cohesiveness so I wanted the photos to flow and have a story. Although, this could have turned out way better if I had the right tools and more time, I am happy with the outcome. I was inspired by the lights of Tokyo, Japan and the neon trend happening now.
