Cross Walk

Monday, February 8, 2016

Happy Monday friends! Somehow I managed to always be doing something, but not doing anything at the same time this whole weekend. I have my first wave of exams this week, so I've been pretty busy prepping for that. For the Super Bowl I went over to my friends house and we all watched it together. Since the Pats didn't make it to the Super Bowl I had less interest in the game than last year. And not being a football fanatic, I mainly watch for the commercials. But I was disappointed in the ads because there were very few that made me laugh or stood out (besides that ultrasound one by Dorito's amiright?).

This look has a lot to do with winter break. I bought my turtleneck when I was back home, it is on super sale right now for under $10! I was also super bored at one point, so I decided to give ripping up another pair of jeans a shot. I had these from Forever 21 that I wore before I discovered my American Eagle leggings. The problem with these, was I didn't like the straight leg they had around the ankles, so I fixed that by cropping them and distressing the hem also! I thought it gave it a really cool look especially with the Nike's. I will definitely be wearing this ripped jean/sneaker look as we transition from winter to spring.

Windy in White

Monday, February 1, 2016

Recovering from a crazy weekend! Yesterday, I drove to Indy with a couple of my friends from the Lala for a shoot. I can't release that many details (I'll let you guys know as soon as I can) but something very exciting is coming to all you Lala fans! I've posted a couple of behind the scene shots on my instagram, so give that a look! I had so much fun, we were dancing around the studio eating cake, hula hooping, laughing over pizza, really my dream came to life.

Here's a look that I actually wear annually because it lets me wear my leather jacket in the winter. I stray away from my usual black and white look by adding a fun pink beanie! When my friends and I shot this look, it was actually freezing because of the wind, and we were playing music, so that's why most of these photos I'm either laughing/dancing/hair is everywhere.

Trying Something Nude

Monday, January 25, 2016

Wanted to share some of these snaps I took on a day trip to New York City over winter break a little bit ago. It was a short trip, but we spent most of the day in the fashion district. We went to Eately for lunch again because my mom is in love with their spaghetti, and now I am too. Couldn't leave NY without a good cup of coffee, so I went to Culture Espresso to get a latte and cookie. And can I just say their cookie is 10x better than their coffee?! I hadn't been in the city since this summer, and it just reminded me of how much I missed it!

I'm not the type of person to normally wear nude, I think it usually washes me out against my complexion. But I decided to try something nude with this extremely soft cashmere sweater. And as you may have seen in my earlier post, I can't get enough of the cape trend!
