Writers block has definitely gotten the best of me this past week. I took these photos on Sunday with every intention to post them on Monday (with some sort of witty title) and interesting explanation of my deep love for camou and how I might own way to much of it, especially for someone who has no interest in hunting. But when it came down for me to sit down and put words to paper aka my iPad Pro nothing came out. I tried writing while at work on break (of course this was a bad idea I definitely set myself up for failure there) , when I was at home doing nothing and trying to decide if I wanted to re watch stranger things for the second time since there are no new shows on Netflix worth binge watching (because I’ve basic watched it all). Still at the end nothing, yup nothing came to mind so instead I’ll tell you the history behind this jacket. A few months back after leaving brunch with two of my amazing friends Arielle and Tony, we did what any person does that’s had way to many brunch drinks, we went to Zara to look around and waste time before saying good bye to each for the day and head home. Right when we about to leave the store I came across this jacket stuck way behind several other items jammed in on the rack. Arielle and Tony both thought the jacket definitely looked like something you would see on a cast member of The Real Housewives of (INSERT CITY HERE). So naturally I needed it because 1 I’m an over the top individual and 2… well there is no 2 just 1, but the line for the fitting room way just way to long for me to try it on. The next best thing for me to do was to just order thought the zara app, and yes I have the Zara app don’t judge me because this is a judge free zone; but right as I was about to order it my phone dies. Once I made it home and my phone had charged enough for it to turn back one, and I went to order the jacket my size had sold out, at the moment it felt like the universe was tell me not to buy the jacket. Over the course of the next few weeks I keep find myself thinking about the jacket, all the ways I could style it and where I would wear it. Well as you can tell from today’s post I bought it, and since then I’ve worn it so many different ways. I’ve even worn it to a doctors appointment and now that I think of it I might have been a tad bit over dressed, but never the less I’m happy I eventually purchased the jacket and I plan on continuing to wear it places, were it’s inappropriate because that the kinda person I am.
As you know by now from my InstaStory ( If your not follow me, I’m judging you…. click HERE to follow my crazy/sometimes weird life and daily inspirations ) , I am in love with the revamp of 80s and 90s style with a touch of western flair. As soon as I laid my eyes on this top by the Persian brand Zadig et Voltaire, I knew I wanted to style it with some type of leather and lots of gold chains. Wala begins you to today post, an 80s/90s with a hint of western, Shirt can be purchased HERE , Bootie are from my all time shopping go to Zara purchase it HERE , chain are buy jewelry boutique @viembazaar and can be purchased HERE . what do you guys think of these trend do you love them or wish it would stop?
Looks like the PJ look is here to stay, well at least until another trend helps to give the illusion that you just hopped out of bed but yet still look chic and well put together. Needless to say I’m in love with this trend and for the past year it’s been my go to look on my days off,when I want to look semi put together. The fact that you can completely change the look from day to night by simply changing out of sneaker( what I usually wear) into heels is just genius. The PJ look with a heel,I would normally wear to a more formal brunch or a cute dinner with friends. Click HERE and HERE to get the look…
I can officially say after two weeks of blogging straight I’m definitely back in in my zone and feeling so inspired. This outfit is so out of the box for me and is totally rock n roll. Did I mention to you guys I feel like I was born in the wrong time period?, well I do I feel that I definitely should of been around during the time of the late great Jimi Hendrix( aka the love of my life).oh yeah did you peep the velvet boot told you more of my favorite fabric was on its way to my blog. This time around I didn’t provide links for the items I’m wearing only because I don’t believe any of the items are still available in store or online but no worries the next outfit post will definitely have pieces you can purchase. Oh Yeah…
I consider myself queen of the oversized outfit, but this week I decided to step out of my comfort zone and shoot a look I wouldn’t normally choose to wear. Even though the outfit is out of my comfort zone it still consist of all my go to’s. A Band T(which I honestly may own way to many of…. said no one ever!), velvet ( keep I eye out for it in post to come because it fall and duh), and of course a comfy sneaker. I recently purchased this Rolling Stones brand T from cotton and have been living in it, the shirt is currently sold out but you can find a similar one HERE. The skirt I purchase during a rushed shopping trip to Zara, I was initially to looking for something to wear to dinner (causal) when I came across this skirt. When I purchased it I had no idea if I would actually wear the skirt but I knew I had to have it, you can purchase it HERE. My vans I’ve had for some time now and their the right amount of worn in, I find myself grabbing for these before any of my other shoes. Eventually all purchase a new pair( more then likely when they fall apart) and kept these as back ups, if you don’t already own a pair…. shame on you your missing out and get you some HERE.
It’s officially fall in Miami… well our version of fall anyways, and I am truly enjoying the cool weather we’ve been receiving. I’ve always said I was born in the wrong city, because I thrive in the cold. There’s something about layering on different fabrics and mixing fitted with oversized clothing that makes me do a internal jig. For this outfit I paired what become my favorite day to night pieces, the Rahul dress by Zadig et voltaire , topped it off with a Tanya Cardigan by the brand as well,and for a little edge I wore a pair Zara boots I’ve had forever. Oh yeah… this is my official first outfit post since I came back to blogging, I’m extremely excited to be back in font of the camera. Look out from new post from me every Monday and Thursday.
As you know by now I took another break from blogging, over the past year a lot has happened personally, career wise, and in friendships. I told myself at the beginning of the year I was going to let everything toxic go that was in my life. As a result my circle of friends got smaller,I had a lot more free time to focus on myself, I organized my closet way more then I’d like to admit( I may have a problem,but we’ll take about that on a later date), and I found inspiration to blog again. In the past my main excuse for not consistently posting was my busy schedule( I really wasn’t that busy if I’m being honest) I work Full time at a French retailer and my schedule is never the same and my days off are constantly changing. Which makes it had to schedule shoots with photographers that are equally as busy as myself, but a few weeks ago while watching one of my favorite style bloggers @layllahstyle ( if your not already following her shame on you and you should definitely start) gave all her followers and fellow bloggers the key to solo photo takening. Which believe it or not does consist of that much you basically need your cell phone(iPhone for the best photos), a tripod Zomei Z666 portable tripod , a phone mount Joby Mount , and a few photo editing apps like Retouch, Snapseed, and facetune.
The photo below of me was taking during a solo photo taking try session I did a few weeks back. I was hard at first to find the lighting and jump in to a pose for the photos but after a while it got a little easier and felt a little more natural. Now that I’ve got it down a little I plan on taking my solo photo taken to the streets and posting a more street style outfit post. The goal I set for myself is at least two street style posts a week on Monday’s and Thursday’s, then sprinkled in between a few lifestyle post about things I did that week. By setting these goals I’m hoping I’ll stick to blogging and add a little structure to my life… fingers crossed!!! So I invite you on this journey with me and I hope you guys enjoy the content and outfits I plan on sharing with you all.
