A sweater vest was the last thing I thought I could make look cute. However, I decided to pick one up and try my best. The final look turned out way better than I had expected! I love the contrast and layering and am definitely a fan of the vest.

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.

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.

I have officially made it to Florence, Italy and have had a wonderful first few days here. I wasn’t originally going to post these photos to the blog but I am so in love with this dress, I just absolutely had to.
This For Love and Lemons Dress is my most favorite piece I own and I made the decision of not bringing it to Italy with me. I only wanted to pack practical clothing that I could mix and match with lots of outfits while still leaving room for some new things.
Of course, before I parted ways with this dress, I had a mini backyard photoshoot in it!
Ciao for now

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!

SO… I have recently realized that the majority of my closet is denim, white t-shirts, and going out (party) dresses. The first two in that category make an easy everyday outfit but why leave out those party dresses? For this blog post, I wanted to style a look that acts as kind of a guide on how to wear you going out dresses in the daytime and for everyday wear.
For this outfit, I chose my absolute favorite, go-to party dress I own. It’s tight, bold, and stretchy (therefore comfortable and can be shared with multiple friends). ALSO- I think I only paid a whopping $9 for it on Missguided!
To make this sexy dress more daytime, or even business, appropriate, I paired it underneath a white button up blouse giving it a more sophisticated aesthetic. However, to keep it fun and moving from day to night, I paired it with a funky pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
This little trick can be done with almost any party dress, whether you wear something underneath, throw on a blazer or jacket, or pull a skirt over the bottom half. Don’t be afraid to get creative here!
