|I have really had the urge to buy something nice recently. On a college student budget, that isn’t always possible. So I am just going to dream about these items and hope to purchase them some day. OAK has been a new brand that I stumbled upon and happen to be doing my portfolio project on. I am in love with their line. I got a chance to check out the store on Broadway the other day, just wow. The drop crotch panel pants were really interesting and a new silhouette for myself.
S’Well bottles have been trending all over my campus and I just have to have one. How modern and cool can a water bottle get? I am just in awe over some of these items (that coat though…).
What have you been loving recently? I would love to know!

|The first thing you may notice about the blog… the post section is much wider now! I really wanted to showcase my photos as much as possible. On another note, I am thrilled to be wearing sweaters again! Neutral colors have been a liking of mine this season. They pair perfectly with every wash of denim and really any printed or solid trouser. However, neutrals can get boring. Try finding neutral sweaters that have a really unique knit to them (ex. cable, waffle, pique). Texture is a key aspect in creating a visually appealing outfit.
A pair of light wash jeans for fall rolling into winter is a must. I have been gravitating towards looser fitting jeans (“boyfriend jeans”). Rolling the ankle for a tailored silhouette creates the look of a skinny at the bottom and tapers the silhouette. This creates a form fitting/loose look.

I am so happy that LA is starting to get a bit chillier and the sun is starting to fade. As many of you know, I am in love with the colder weather as it lets my inner “fashionista” blossom. Layering is a key aspect in creating outfits full of interest and texture. Above is a video I created showcasing the three outfits featured in this post. I hope it can give you some inspiration for fall and some of the current pieces of my wardrobe that I am loving.
|Today was a day full of shooting for both the blog and my YouTube channel. My good friend and I, Brittany shot a full fall lookbook and here is the first. I plan on having the video posted within the next few days! I wanted to incorporate different styles throughout the collection starting with this “street” look.
I paired my new favorite pair of joggers from East Dane with my all time favorite flannel from JCP. The joggers are made of a thick woven slub fabric which creates an industrial hard edge. Lastly, to bring along my necessities I threw on this leather studded pack to complete my street attire.
+ Flannel : JCPenney
+ Joggers : Penfield
+ Shoes : Aldo
+ Sunnies : Ray-Ban
I have been slowly working my way to unpacking into my new home for the next year. I can finally say that a good 95% of the apartment has been finished and I couldn’t be happier. Shopping for furniture and decor on a college student budget that I personally have to acquire is pretty tough. The challenge was fun and I recycled so many pieces from my past room and even further in the past high school room. The only furniture purchased was the couches as the past couches were purchased by my room mate. But….. I love the couches and got them for a STEAL.
I would love to know your thoughts on the apartment? Which part is your favorite? Leave a comment!
